Winter has been kicking in as much as it does in Southern California, but the colder, dryer temps have been leaving parts of my face and body dry and irritated. My lighter face lotion and nightly face oil haven’t been cutting it for moisturization. For my body the lighter lotions with SPF haven’t been enough so I’ve been layering the Bath and Body Vanilla and Rose on top to really amp up hydration.
I finally decided to just take the leap and buy some things to help my poor skin stay glowy and supple through winter.
I have loved L’occitane products for a long time, but the price tag has always kept me from purchasing full size. I splurged on this lotion and don’t plan on using it until I am out of the Bath and Body Vanilla and Rose, but I am excited to have something a bit more emollient on hand. I love the clean, light scent and the reviews were all pretty amazing. The only thing I am a little bummed about is that they don’t really have any products with SPF so I’ll have to continue to layer on a SPF lotion with this.
My next item is the Kiehl’s face cream with SPF. Over the summer I had switched from the cream to the lotion, but with dryer conditions it was time to switch back. We also have a couple of future trips into colder climates that will require a thicker moisturizer so I’m happy to have made this purchase.
I love a good face oil and I was running low on my Herbivore Orchid so I thought I would make the leap and buy the Moroccan Argan Oil from The Ordinary. This was under $10 and is supposed to be very hydrating without being comedogenic. I’ve been pairing it with the Herbivore and have been finding that my skin is less dry when I wake up in the mornings.
I’m hoping that all these skin loving products will leave me with less dry patches and more glow! What are you guys using to combat winter dryness? Any products you recommend?
Have a great weekend! I’ll see you guys Monday!
