If you read my post last year on Clarins skincare you may already be aware that my skin isn’t usually my friend when the weather turns colder. If anyone else has the same problem, the Clarins products in that post are still up there with my favourite lotions and potions, but as the year has gone on I’ve discovered a few more remedies for combating dry and sensitive skin. These are my top three additions to my ever-growing list of skincare saviours!
Lano Everywhere Multi Cream
I love this. It was a gift from my Aunt and I use it all the time. It makes my skin so smooth and as well as a face moisturiser, I find this great for post-shaving dryness on my legs. My skin is really sensitive and I often end up with rashes and dry patches on my legs after shaving, but this cream works wonders.
Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream
It’s important to mention that I do not recommend use of this on your face. I learnt the hard way. Despite being called a cream, it’s actually more like a gel and smells a bit like TCP. Upon application to my face it broke me out like nobody’s business but it’s very effective as a lip balm. I use this for dry, cracked lips but, because of the smell, I wouldn’t recommend it if you’re planning on giving bae a smooch. (Ew, what kind of word is ‘smooch’?) I haven’t tried it on any other body parts yet but it’s supposed to be really good for sunburn and scrapes, so I’ll let you know how I get on.
Oliver Bonas Hand & Nail Cream
I always find that as the weather turns colder, my hands get so dry. I carry this cream in my handbag with me so that when I’m at work or on-the-go I can keep my hands moisturised. Also, it smells lush!
