Top 5 Skincare products - Winter Edition!

Winter is well and truly upon us 
and there's nothing more 
(besides Christmas candles, Christmas markets, and mulled wine)
than keeping your skin fresh and healthy
So I thought I'd share my top
five skincare products that keep my skin hydrated during this Winter season.

I'm a huge fan of Korean skincare products, so I use a combination of brands in my 
skincare routine. 

Number 1. Clarins Beauty Flash Balm

I am in love with this product. It's the perfect skin booster for tired looking skin during these cold and dark nights. Not only is it a great light moisturiser, it also brightens and tightens your skin. 
I use it in the morning before applying makeup on and it acts as a great primer!


Number 2. Origins Rose Clay Mask

For someone who has oily skin, I love this clay mask. Even though these Winter months dry out our skin, those of us with an oily skin complexion know that our
ebaceous glands don't stop producing excess oil.
Made with Mediterranean Rose Clay, Canadian 
Willow Herb and exfoliating Jojoba beads, it absorbs excess oil and leaves my skin fresh and refined.
I use it twice a week to maintain and keep my skin in check.


Number 3. Nature Republic Fresh Steam Cream

Nature Republic is a South Korean cosmetic brand using natural ingredients.
This cream contains shea butter and uses a hot steam technology. 
love how the steam heats up your face upon application, leaving your skin warm and hydrated. I use the one made for oily/combination skin, but they have
 different versions for the various skin types.

Number 4. Nature Republic Rose Ampoule

I am obsessed with Nature Republic's ampoule. I've tried rose 
and also acai berry. Both of 
which smell amazing and feel great on your skin. The scents are not too strong, so they're not overpowering, but they leave your face smelling delightful.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with ampoule, it's basically part of the same family as essences and serums. It higher concentrations of active ingredients 
so a little goes a long way. It gives your skin a boost of goodness.


Number 5. Origins Ginzing Energy Boosting Moisturiser

I use this moisturiser in my morning and evening routine. 
It's oil-free and feels light and refreshing.
firm staple for me. 


And that's my top 5 for this Winter.

But I wanted to include these sheet masks too!
I looooovvvee 
these Korean sheet masks
When I'm having a bad/dull skin day, I treat myself to one of these bad boys. I have stocked up on lots of these masks. They're quick and easy, no mess and after 20 minutes, your skin is left leaving fresher than ever.

Hope you enjoyed this little read. 
Skincare is super important all year round so make sure you have the right products for your skin type to keep your skin looking flawless.
