Skincare is something that has been so important to me recently, and with the weather changing from slightly warm to much cooler (yay for Autumn!), I thought it was time to write a post on some of my favourite skincare products to use as and when the weather changes. Some of these products I’ve used before and others I’ve just recently start using but I’ve been loving them all so let’s get started!
I was lucky enough to win this in a Twitter giveaway and I’ve really enjoyed using it. I was looking for a hand cream and before I used it, I thought that it was a hand cream (lol). Huge mistake because it’s actually a hand scrub that you rinse off with warm water! Imagine if I’d tried to use it as a hand cream on the Tube…
Anyways I’ve been loving using this, because firstly it smells incredible. I’m not the biggest fan of rose-scented products, perhaps it’s the peppercorn in it but this smells so clean and fresh rather than those overly sweet floral smell you usually get with a rose-scented product. It also leaves my hands feeling super soft afterwards and they stay that way for a long time too so you don’t have to use it too frequently. You also have to use a tiny bit so hopefully this will last me a while!
I bought this around the same time last year and even though I like experimenting with my skincare products, I always seem to go back to this product. I know that it hugely popular, and honestly for very good reason. You don’t need to use a lot of product which I love because it means that it will last for ages, and it also has a very clean and fresh smell, there’s nothing worse than an overpowering smell in a cleansing product. I just love the way my skin feels after using it. It feels soft but more importantly it feels very clean and refreshed. A definite staple for the Autumn/Winter skincare routine, and in my opinion, well worth the money!
3. Maleé Body Cream*: £20
I was sent this lovely cream and it has definitely become a part of my current skincare routine. It wouldn’t have my usual pick so I’m glad it was sent to me otherwise I would never have had a chance to try it. The substance of the cream is quite heavy, giving it a feel of a body butter but it’s not too greasy. The only thing I would say is that it takes a little while to absorb into your skin but once it does, my skin was so lovely and smooth. I loved the packaging as well, it felt very luxurious and I liked the green colour. I also loved the smell, I can’t describe it at all but it smells so lovely!
Ever since I was introduced to this brand a little while ago, I have loved using their products. I also love the company as a whole, they are against animal-testing and are completely cruelty free. They also donate a percentage of their products to animal and environment charities, which I think is just so special.
Back to the mask. I love face masks on a Sunday evening, just chilling and getting ready for the week ahead, and I have loved using this mask. This mask is good for sensitive skin and you don’t have to use a lot as it lasts for 25-30 applications which is good considering the pot isn’t huge! The mask doesn’t dry out and it makes you skin feel super moisturized afterwards, and is also really easy to take off.
I also have a discount code if you wanted to shop anything on the Bloomtown website so take advantage, as it’s a huge 20% off, whaaaat: DIVYA20 – get shopping lovelies!
5. Sanctuary Spa Body Scrub: £6.50
There have been Sanctuary Spa products in my house from a young age and I have always loved the packaging, the smell and the feel of all the products I have ever used from Sanctuary Spa. This is probably one of my favourite ever brands, and I love that everything is so reasonably priced.
A scrub for me is an integral part of any season’s skincare routine but for Autumn/Winter, I feel like a scrub is essential to get rid of all the dead skin and to leave your skin silky soft. This particular one smells incredible and like all of the products in this post, it lasts forever! (I had no idea that was going to be a recurring theme, I promise!)
So that concludes the skincare products I’ll be adding to my routine this Autumn/Winter!
What does your Autumn/Winter skincare routine look like?
