The weather in London has suddenly gotten a lot colder, it was -1 this morning, far colder than I’d like and far colder than my skin would like. The change of season and the cold always send my skin into a mini panic but I have been replying on three products to get me through.
For days when I want something that will remove my makeup and not irritate my skin further, I have been relying on Olay 2-in-1 Hydration Balancing and Purifying Cleansing Refreshing Facewash. It’s not the fanciest, most luxurious cleanser but it’s a great one to have on hand for days when you need a no-fuss cleanser that won’t dry out the skin. I love the smell of this cleanser, it’s weirdly comforting and it’s the perfect affordable cleanser for any of you double cleansers.
Totally different end of the price spectrum but I have been using the Le Metier de Beaute Ultimate Hydrator. Quick disclaimer, it is expensive. I was sent this and there is no way I could afford this product but it is good and I have been using it every single day for the last three weeks. It’s a great booster over moisturiser to ensure skin is well hydrated, I’ve been using it morning and night and am starting to see a real improvement.
But my saving grace has truly been the Trilogy Certified Organic Rose Hip Oil, it’s one of my all time favourite oils and it always saves the day (or my skin). I’ve been reaching for it both morning and night, I’m more generous with it in the evening and use it sparingly during the day but my skin seems to love it and nothing hydrates my skin more. If you’re struggling with dry/dehydrate skin than I can’t recommend this oil more, it really helps keep my skin balanced and affordable.
