Winter Skincare Essentials*

By Laura Thornberry - 10:00

|#AD| During the colder months of the year, my skincare routine definitely changes, and I am finding myself adding many more products into my daily routine that fit my current skins needs. The colder, winter months really have a drastic impact on my skin, as I tend to have much dryer and dull-looking skin. My last skincare post featured some of my favourite drugstore serums that I use on a day-to-day basis. I find serums an essential use for the colder months as I find my skin tends to get much drier in places due to the change in weather. Serums are great as they absorb deeper into the skin, and allow the skin to retain a higher level of moisture. I also have a selection of other skincare products that are my winter essentials, and they are as follows...
REN Glow Daily Vitamin C Gel Cream
First up is the REN Glow Daily Vitamin C Gel Cream*. A new addition into my skincare routine, and a definite game changing product for those with dull and tired looking skin. It's packed full of essential vitamins minerals that help boost a radiant and glowy complexion. Full of Tara Pod Extract, Vitamin C and Magnesium, helping to even out skin tone, illuminate the complexion and nourish the skin. The REN Glow Daily Vitamin C Gel Cream has a light and natural fresh scent with a hint of zesty and juicy oranges. Sounds delicious right?! When applying to the skin, a little goes a long way, so you only need the smallest amount for a full face. A perfect lightweight and fast absorbing cream, anything with the words 'radiance' and 'glow' are a perfect winter treat that helps you get that summer glow all year round!
Superdrug Vitamin E Gentle Oatmeal Exfoliator
Next, I've been using the Superdrug Vitamin E Gentle Oatmeal Exfoliator. At a bargain price of £2.99, this has been one of my best drugstore finds in terms of skincare.  Vitamin E Exfoliating Facial Scrub uses oatmeal to provide gentle but effective exfoliation, revealing deeply cleansed, soft and radiant skin. I use this twice a week after I've cleansed my skin, and it leaves me feeling super plump and smooth, that my moisturiser or serum glides effortlessly across my cleansed skin.
Cuticura Intensive Hand & Nail Cream
My third winter skincare essential is a nourishing hand cream. I always carry one with me in my bag for when I'm out and about, as they're perfect for when you're travelling or on the go. Recently I've picked up the Cuticura Intensive Hand & Nail Cream which I found when browsing my local Poundland store. Packed with Vitamin E and Glycerin; a perfect combination to keep your hands moisturised and nourished all day long.
Grüum Coffee & Coconut Body Polish Scrub
Another essential for me is a body scrub. I go through so many of these as I love the feeling of silky, soft and smooth skin. Currently I'm using the Grüum Coffee & Coconut Body Polish Scrub. Packed with Robusta Coffee, Cane Sugar, Dead Sea Salt, Argan oil, Macadamia oil and Cocoa Butter, it's the perfect way to exfoliate and nourish your skin. 
Vaseline Intensive Care Aloe Spray Moisturiser
My final skincare essential is the Vaseline Intensive Care Aloe Spray Moisturiser. I opt for a spray moisturiser in the winter months as it's far too cold to spend ages applying body moisturiser and letting it absorb. I'm currently using the Aloe Soothe moisturiser which has a super fresh and clean fragrance to it. I also really like the Cocoa scent! The product really helps to keep my skin moisturised and instantly leaves it feeling soft and refreshed. The best thing about this spray moisturiser is that it has non-greasy formula and absorbs into the skin in seconds, so there's no need to wait around before you put on your fresh clothes or pyjamas!

  1. Hello lovely!
    My skin has REALLY struggled to cope with the cold this year. I have more dry patches and my skin has felt so rough and fragile. I have Superdrug's Oatmeal Exfoliator and for the price I think it does wonders! I also picked up their own brand moisturiser and they work so well together! I'd love to try the REN Vitamin C Cream though!
