The Add Ons

My skin at the moment is horrible. Hor. Ri. Ble! Breakout Central and generally lacklustre, you can tell winter is here! So I've been trying to add some treatments into my routine so help shift this skin funk I seem to be in.

First off, let's talk about the clarifying ones. My favourite of the bunch has to be the Aesop Parsley Seed Mask. This is a favourite among bloggers and I can see why, my skin feels thoroughly cleansed and detoxed after applying this but doesn't dry the skin out. For a cheaper alternative, there is the Una Brennan Pore Purifying Clay Mask, this is the only product from her I actually like but it seems to do the same job as the Aesop, although this high street alternative can dry out the skin if left on too long. Now even though I need to sort out this skin problem, I still want a bit of life and glow to my skin so I've been using the REN Radiance Perfection Serum* on a morning under my moisturiser and the REN Radiance AHA Concentrate* on a evening as an exfoliating treatment. The combination of these two products leave my skin looking fresh and bright. Let's not forget the most important part which is moisture. As soon as winter hits my skin becomes dehydrated and tight so on an evening to plump some life back into my skin, I've been using the Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate and Origins Drink Up Intensive Mask. Both products sink into the skin and leave my skin feeling plump and thoroughly hydrated. Winter skin? What winter skin!

What are your winter skincare essentials?


  1. Heard so many good things about the purifying clay mask! Wanna try it!!! Xxx

  2. I've wanted to try the Aesop mask for so long, heard such great things about. Same for the Kiehls product too. My essentials is definitely the Origins drink up intensive mask too, it's amazing, can't go wrong with that!

  4. I love skincare & really like to see what other people use. I suffer from breakouts quite regularly and find Aesop skincare is very good at calming them down. Kiehls Midnight Recovery is so hydrating I love it.
    I can recommend the Clarins Lotus Oil, this is really good for blemish prone skin.
    I need to invest in a few REN products, I haven't tried anything from them

  5. Aw I want all of theses haha. Winter is the time to invest in some good skin care so I'm taking notes here and deciding what I should add on to my routine :)

  7. A friend told me about the Una Brennan mask and you've just made me want it even more!

  8. Facial oils are my best friend right now - I've been using the Antipodes Divine Face Oil. Moisturiser and serum doesn't seem enough at the mo so I've been using it morning and night xx
