2017 is really flying by so quickly and it’s already the 2nd week of June, so a time for a new monthly favourites. It’s officially winter here in Sydney and the weather is getting quite chilly. Below are some things that have helped me to make it through this cooler weather. Winter is by far my least favourite season as I completely hate the cold! Now on to the favourites.
First up is the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask which is a product that I’ve used since last year. I especially love using this during Winter as cooler weather tends to lead to dry skin and chapped lips, especially with all the hours spent sitting in front of a heater! This lip mask has been a completed life (or lip) saver.
I’ve always loved using the Innisfree Green Tea balancing cream but I thought I’d change it up and try something new. I heard lots of great things about the Orchid line products, and this cream was one of the raved about items. I finally came around to trying this out and completely see why it so well loved! The cream is super moisturising and has a subtle flowery smell that isn’t too overpowering. This cream is a bit on the heavier side and is more moisturising than the Green Tea cream so is better suited for use during winter months or for those with normal to dry skin types. After application, my skin feels soft, supple and very well moisturised.
Colder weather means dry flakey skin, at least for me, so this Neogen Bio Peel Gauze Peeling Pads in Wine have been my go to exfoliator to get rid of any dry patches on my face. I love these peeling pads as they help to exfoliate my skin yet isn’t too abbrasive so doesn’t irritate my skin. I love that the peeling pads are so full of essence that it is practically dripping which is awesome as it helps to add moisture back into the skin whilst I exfoliate.
This blusher is a beautiful coral peach shade that is fun, youthful and gives a nice subtle flushed looked. This blusher helps to brighten up the dull rainy winter days! I love that it looks really natural and is quite pigmented so I don’t need to apply much for the colour to show up on my cheeks.
I like to use this powder foundation on top of my BB cushion or BB cream on days I want some extra coverage. This shade matches my skin tone completely and blends in seemlessly. I also love that the coverage is buildable and doesn’t cake on my skin, so gives a very natural finish, and almost looks like I’m not wearing any makeup at all!
