The Moisture Crew


November just started and I'm already feeling the dry skin kick in. Moisture is my best friend in the winter months when my once normal skin decides to become a desert on my face and body. There are a handful of products I reach for as soon as the weather gets colder and I'm in need of some moisture.

For body care I've really been enjoying the Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair lotion*. It's the richest formula Vaseline makes and it really does the trick on my elbows and legs. It's a no fuss product that doesn't have a scent which sometimes bugs me at night when I'm trying to go to sleep. 

For skincare there are three products that are my saviors. It's almost impressive how dry my face can get in a matter of days, but these guys help to restore moisture to it overnight and stop that painful tugging feeling dry skin has. My favorite member of the moisture crew has to be the Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight mask. This has never steered me wrong. It's a clear mask that you apply before bed and leave on overnight. Just be sure to give yourself 15 to 20 minutes before settling into bed to let the mask sink in. It smells great and a little goes a long way. In the morning my skin feels refreshed and glowing. I'll be using this for years to come.

The Body Shop Vitamin C Daily Moisturizer  is another great option. It smells like oranges and is a light cream that sinks into the skin quickly. It's not as rich as the Origins mask, but a nice little something extra to help out dry skin. The Origins High-Potency Night-A-Mins is another product that packs some serious moisture. You also leave this on your skin overnight as it works to give back what your skin needs. I'm not a big fan of the smell, but the way my skin feels and looks in the morning it's definitely worth it. 

For makeup I couldn't live without my Stila One Step Correct. Regardless of whether or not I'm wearing makeup I'll put this on to add one last layer of moisture to my skin. It acts like a primer and moisturizer in one. Sinks into the skin perfectly and leaves it looking ready to take on the world.

What products do you use to fight dry skin?

I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes

  1. The Origins Overnight Mask sounds amazing! I don't really get dry skin, just a few dry patches now and then, but I do try and use more intensive overnight creams during winter.

  3. The Origins mask is a lifesaver for this time of year! I also must try the Stila primer, although at the moment I'm loving the Pixi Flawless Beauty Primer which is also nice and hydrating!

  6. Facial oils are my best friend in winter! I always use them at night directly on the skin and in the morning I'll add a few drops to my moisturiser if I feel I need it :-) xx
