13.11.2017- Beauty Buys: Nars Skin Optimal Brightening Concentrate

And, as if by some Game of Thrones style magic, we find ourselves well and truly in the grip of winter. Brrrr. I feel like all I've done for the last week or so is complain to anyone who will listen about just how cold I'm finding it, but sitting on the sofa wrapped up in thermals and fleecy socks with the curtains closed at 4pm yesterday afternoon really reminded me how little I like this time of the year. As well as making me resemble the Michelin man in terms of layering, winter also means that my skin tends to go into panic mode- dry and lacklustre, verging on the paler side of grey. In an attempt to combat this, as well as embracing some new deep cleansing treats, I've also added a step to my morning routine which is really helping to keep the outlook as bright as possible: 

Before now, I'd never used any of Nars' skincare range, preferring instead to reach for their colour cosmetics- namely blushers and their super covetable eyeshadows. However, after road testing a sample of the Optimal Brightening Concentrate which I got free with a magazine, I was well and truly converted, and snapped up a full sized bottle a few weeks back. I deploy this magic lotion as part of my morning routine after moisturising, and it really does work wonders- with only a couple of pumps boosting my complexion and somehow making me look human first thing in the morning. With light reflectors, it's the perfect antidote to the darker days, and although it's a little on the pricey side, I can see this bottle lasting for months. 

Have you added any new products to your winter skincare routine?
