blog, lists & guides

It’s that time of year – the cold has officially set in and with it our winter skin woes. We’ve rounded up our skin saviours that are going to keep us going through to spring!

S A V E 

The Vitamin E Range from Superdrug – from £2.99

“Great for the skin, reasonable priced and not heavy” – AMY

Triple Active Day Cream for Dry & Sensitive – L’Oreal £6.49 (50ml)

“A little really does go a long way and I’ve been using day and night – using a little more before bed for it to really sink in. It’s really good value for the quality” – KIM

Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 – The Ordinary £6.00 (30ml)

“This stuff is amazing, it’s hard to pinpoint exactly what it does, it just makes my skin ‘better’, it feels softer and make up goes on smoothly and it’s a bargain!” – HOLLY

Peppermint Foot Lotion – The Body Shop £8.50 (250ml)

“Peppermint foot cream keeps cracked dry winter skin away. I love Body Shop because the products do the job and smell delicious, there is everything you need for full body treatment in one place, nothing is tested on animals and there are always deals on/savings that allow you to get a huge haul for little money. A lifelong fan!” – JEMIMA

Extraordinary Oil Facial Cleansing Oil – L’Oreal £7.99 (150ml)

“My skin has been particularly dry this year – already! – and this has been a lifesaver. It’s silky smooth and smells amazing. My skin feels like a baby’s” – KIM

Cotton Gloves – Boots £2.59 (one pair)

“These save my hands in the winter particularly cos I’ve got eczema. Coat your hands in your hand cream of choice before bed (like so much it won’t rub any more) pop on the gloves and go to bed. Wake up with brand new hands!” – LISA

Body Lotions from Aveeno – from £5.99

“Also shout out to Aveeno, my skin doesn’t like lots of body lotions but Aveeno is lovely and always sorts out dry skin” – HOLLY

Rehab for Hair Recovery Shampoo & Conditioner – Bed Head by Tigi £15.75 (2x750ml)

“Don’t forget hair! The cold weather and central heating play havoc with hair in winter. This has been a saviour for my dry and damaged locks!” – LINDSAY

S P L U R G E 

Oils of Life Intensely Revitalising Cream – The Body Shop £26.00 (50ml)

Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser – Liz Earle £16.00 (100ml)

“This cleanser keeps my oily skin clean and soft without drying it or making me break out” – HOLLY

Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel – La Roche Posay £12.00 (200ml)

Body Butter – The Body Shop £15.00 (200ml)

“The Body Shop were the originals for body butter and it’s fab (I have coconut, mango and the new Frosted Berries flavour – you can smell and feel Christmassy with this one!)” – JEMIMA

Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Cream – Kiehl’s £37.00 (226g)

“The body cream is just what my skin craves and it absorbs super quickly!” – BARBARA

Alpha-H Liquid Gold £33.50 (100ml)

“Don’t let the ‘with glycolic acid’ on the front put you off – wish I’d started using this a long time ago. Skin feels restored and it’s helped with the approaching-30-fine-lines” – KIM
