Well Winter is here, and my skin is ANGRY.
And by angry I mean insanely dry.
I’ve always had dry skin, however that is heightened by the fact that I’ve chosen to live in the fourth coldest place in the world. (It was once colder then Mars. Look it up.)
Anyways, having such dry skin I’ve kind of become a bit of a product junkie. Anyone else? I’m like a scientist over here trying to find the perfect formulas of products to make sure my skin stays as happy as possible during the winter months.
The struggle is real.
I thought today I’d share a couple of products that I’ve been using lately to try and avoid my skin feeling like sandpaper if you also share this problem and are looking for some suggestions.
I’ve been using Summer Fridays for a couple weeks now and tbh I’m really loving it. I use it probably three evenings a night as my night cream (I’m aware it’s a mask, but you can also use it as a night cream if your skin is dry AF like mine). It’s thick and makes my skin feel great the next morning, and has a nice pepperminty smell. Often I will mix my Summer Fridays with…
Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil
I’m not sure if I should be doing this, however if my skin is feeling particularly dry I will and I’m liking the results so I’m not going to stop now. I’ll squeeze some Summer Fridays onto my hand and use one pump of the Marula oil and combine the two before patting it onto my face. I also use this oil a couple of times a week on my neck and it feels fantastic. This product is a high price, however Sephora had this as an 100 pt perk a couple of weeks ago and I stocked up. A little goes a long way with this product! (Ordinary also has a Marula oil that is like $10)
Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment w/ Avocado
I’ve been using this product for awhile now and it always leaves around my eyes feeling really hydrated and refreshed. Although this product is a bit expensive, IT LASTS FOREVER. I mean it when I say it you will have this eye cream for so. long. It’s really thick and patting less then a dime sized amount around the eye area is perfect during your evening routine.
Dr. Jart Ceramindin Cream
This nice thick cream has been my go to during the day. I’ve been enjoying its thick consistency and honestly it does keep my skin hydrated. I’m unsure if I’ll continue to use this day cream forever (no particular reason besides I want one with an SPF (I also use sun screen daily)) but for now I’m enjoying it!
GLOW Watermelon Mask
Buy this. It smells like jolly ranchers and is SO hydrating over night.
The Body Shop Vitamin E night cream
I’ve always had this night cream on hand for years and I love it. It’s good for the nights that you just want to throw on a quick hydrating night cream and hit the hay. The product smells nice and relaxing and for the price it can’t be beat.
Besides The Body Shop cream I was able to get everything at Sephora. What I love about Sephora is they’re always so willing to give you samples so you can go home and try the products a couple of times before purchasing.
