As much as I love autumn and winter it’s always a slightly trickier business when it comes to beauty. The wind, rain and cold doesn’t do much for my poor hair and skin so now’s a better time than any to bring a few slightly different products into my routine. These are the products I’m currently loving.
Moisuriser is a key player in my make-up routine and I find that my foundation just doesn’t last without it. This little gem from Good Things Beauty includes extracts of blackcurrent – for its’ clarifying qualities – and goji berry (so it smells hella good for one thing). What I like most about this moisturiser is that it’s fast-absorbing so I don’t find myself spending ages trying to rub it into my face in the mornings.
Not only is this pretty pot from Lush an exoliating shower scrub but it double’s up as a hair treatment; adding volume and shine to the hair. So two for the price of one! I love to use this product once or twice a week in the bath to exfoliate and really treat my skin to a gentle cleanse, however, this product can be used dry for a really good buff and I find this makes it perfect pre-spray tan!
I’m such a huge fan of Montagne Jeunesse, who are now known as My 7th Heaven, and I probably own more face masks that one girl needs but at just over £1 a pop it’s a crime not to invest in a bunch! One of my all-time favourites though is this Dead Sea Mud Spa Clay Mask.
Each mask from My 7th Heaven boasts lots of different benefits and ingredients but as I have breakout-prone, sensitive skin there’s a select few I go for again and again and this is one of them. This particular clay mask is all ready for you to use as soon as you open the sachet, no awkward squeezing out and slapping on, the pre-constructed mask just unfolds, you pat it down and you’re good to go!
If you dye, bleach or put heat anywhere near your hair then an intensive masque or treatment will definitely make your life a lot easier! Winter weather conditions can be harsh on your hair, making the ends brittle and dry and this treatment from John Frieda’s Frizz Ease range gives my hair a little TLC when it needs it most.
I’m hooked on the Bobbi Brown Brush Cleaning Spray but as I very recently ran out of the stuff I gave this (much cheaper) version a go and I think it’s great for a temporary fix! The cleanser comes in an easy-to-use pump bottle and I’ve found it works a treat in between washing my brushes properly.
