Question of the Week: Name three skincare products (face and/or body) that are staples for you in cold weather months. The first three that pop into my mind are for my face and I’ve just started to use them this year.
The first is the Sephora Collection Face Masks. I generally go for the Green Tea but when it gets cold like this I filter in more of the hydrating ones. Lotus is my absolute fave for that. If I’m looking to “binge mask” I’ll layer a few one right after another. Fresh has an excellent line for doing this with (I have a post coming up where I’ll talk more about it).
Next is the Paula’s Choice Resist Brightening Essence. I did a sponsored post with them for Cyber Monday and since I’ve been using that product I’ve noticed a major difference in my skin. It’s probably minor to everyone else, but to me it looks a lot less dull when I don’t have makeup on.
Finally I’ve been loving the Cosmedix Emulsion Intense Hydrator. I’m an oily girl so intense hydration wasn’t ever something I thought I’d need, but it’s really making a difference and not making me any oilier.
Using these things in conjunction with a few others has me beginning to feel like I am getting my actual skincare regime on track. Am I finally an adult? Time will tell lmao!
