01.12.2017- Beauty Buys: Winter Essentials

Now that the temperatures have well and truly plummeted, I've hit refresh on my beauty routine, incorporating a selection of essentials which are ideal for combatting the cold as much as possible. As well as ticking all of the right boxes for some of my seasonal skincare concerns, I've also made a repeat purchase of a fragrance which is proving to be well worth the investment:

Back in the summer, you might remember that I posted about song new skincare discoveries from The Ordinary, including their Hyaluronic Acid. Having used up my stash, I repurchased this Hylamide Booster from The Abnormal Beauty Company, which is slightly lighter and a lot faster absorbing. I find it wonderful for using after cleansing and toning, and it's definitely helped to give my skin a much needed pep up over the last couple of months. Another favourite from The Ordinary comes in the shape of their primer, which acts as the perfect base for everyday makeup, and a much needed extra barrier against the chill.

The next of my winter essentials comes in the shape of the Kiehl's Ultimate Strength Hand Salve, which is never too far away at this time of the year. It's a little bit pricier than usual, but I'm yet to find a better hand cream on the market. Finally, a fragrant new addition to my winter routine in the shape of Chanel's No.5 L'Eau. I'd originally road tested this about a year ago, and decided to repurchase in the spur of a 'treat yoself' moment- no regrets, especially as it's an instant mood booster too. 

What are your winter beauty essentials?
