Autumn/Winter Essentials Part #2

So on to part 2 of my essentials during the colder months...

Moisturiser/facial oil:
My skin type is pretty normal with the odd dry patch just either side of my nose (just under the eyes) so I tend to use moisturisers quite a bit. I'm currently switch between the Embryolisse Lait Creme ConcentreClinique Moisture Surge & Liz Earle Superskin moisturiser. This year, I've also jumped on the facial oil bandwagon-being the cheap ass that I am, I grabbed the Botanics facial oil as it was pretty cheap & I really like it so for now, I'm happy to stick with it. I love using a facial oil, I feel like in really treating my skin with it-I tend to rub in a few drops just before bed and let it sink in overnight which leave me with lovely plump skin when I wake up!

Lip balm:
I struggle all year round with dry lips so a good lip balm is a must for me. I have tried so many over the years; Vaseline, Carmex, Burts Bees etc etc but I would have to say my favourite has got to be Blistex MedPlus!

Hand cream:
Weirdly, I only suffer with dryness on my hands on my right thumb & index finger-nowhere else! But, I still use hand cream throughout the day (all year round) and my current favourites are the Soap & Glory hand food (smells divine) & L'occitane hand cream (I am currently using the Cherry Princess one which I was given as a gift).
