5 Winter Wonders

The weather has been getting a little chilly lately (which in Brisbane means temperatures lower than 25 degrees) and I've definitely noticed my skin freaking out a little bit. Here are some great additions to your skincare routine for winter:
1. Bioderma Hydrabio Light Cream* ($39.99 for 40ml)
Don't be put off by the price, a little of this goes a very long way! The Bioderma Hydrabio range is designed for dehyrdated or sensitive skin, making it the perfect addition to your winter skincare range. It's surprisingly lightweight, absorbs easily and will get your skin back to tip-top condition in no time. I've been using this as a night-time moisturiser, just to give it plenty of time to absorb and do it's amazing work.

2. The Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist ($16.95 for 100ml)
I've had a very long love affair with this face mist! Not only is it the perfect companion for long-haul flights, it's also perfect for the chillier months. I like to add a spritz of this before I apply my makeup or right before I go to bed. It's very refreshing and because it contains Vitamin E, it's also very moisturising. The 100ml size is also perfect to pop into your handbag for a little pick-me-up when your skin starts feeling dull, flaky or just plain old tired.  

This new offering from Chapstick is perfect for beating the nasty chapped lips that come along with the change in weather. Infused with yummy papaw and Shea butter, your lips will feel smooth and moisturised all day long. I also like this one because, unlike a lot of the other Chapsticks, it actually makes my lips feel nourished, doesn't dry them out and lasts for ages.

4. LUSH Mask of Magnaminty* ($15.95 for 125g)
Yeah, yeah, I know, everyone is sick of hearing me go on and on and on about how much I love this mask! But seriously, this minty treat is perfect for when your skin freaks out because the temperature has dropped and you know look like an extra in a horror movie. It's fresh, it banishes breakouts AND it's a great exfoliator too so you can get rid of that not-so-lovely layer of dry skin that comes with winter. 

5. Alpha H Liquid Gold* ($59.95 for 100ml)
Liquid Gold really does live up to its name! It's a resurfacing treatment designed for damaged or acne-scarred skin but it's also perfect going into winter. It very gently removes the surface layer of skin, giving you soft, smooth, glowy skin and it's super simple to use. It is a little pricey but the results speak for themselves.

What are your top picks for winter?

Ugh the weather has gotten sooo cold! Especially last week, but yes, my skin has definitely gotten a bit drier! I've had to up the dosage of rose hip oil haha :P Liquid Gold has been amazing, but I do want to try more Body shop stuff! The vitamin E range sounds lovely.

I've actually just unearthed a few samples of things from the Vitamin E range, keen to see what they're like! I do love rosehip oil too, I've been using a really nice rosehip oil cream too.

Awww that sucks! I have found the Liquid Gold seems to work a lot better than the Glyco Peel, at least for me!
