Winter Skin Favourites

If you’ve got oily skin, you might be reluctant to use oils and super moisturising products, even when it’s freezing outside and you can feel the cold biting at your cheeks. It’s a habit I’m guilty of, despite telling others to slather on the facial oils to sink in before my foundation.

Even oilier skin needs that extra TLC, and when I do get round to it I can see a difference almost straight away. Here are my current favourite skin care products that keep my skin nourished without making me look like a greaseball.


1. Pixi Beauty Rose Oil Blend

I only used to use this at night but now I use the Rose Oil Blend under makeup too. If you apply it as soon as you’ve cleansed and toned your face to let it skin in before applying everything else it doesn’t make your skin look oily at all. Instead it gives your foundation a dewy glow that’s makes it appear more natural even if it’s a matte finish.

2. Embryolisse Eye Contour Care

My favourite eye cream ever, I have a full review on this, but to sum it up quickly for this post it’s rich enough to moisturise your under eye area and light enough to sink in so it doesn’t make applying makeup over the top a pain.

3. Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentre

At first I hated this product because I tried using it by itself as a primer/moisturiser like most makeup artists seem to do, but it would just make my makeup patchy throughout the day as my skin became oilier. Now I just use the Lait Creme Concentre on my forehead and around my nose so that it prevents any dry patches without affecting how my makeup wears on top.

4. Pixi Beauty Rose Flash Balm Instant Skin Booster

As you can see from the photo, this is a well loved product! Even if I don’t wear makeup, I still use the Rose Flash Balm to keep my skin looking matte but healthy so I never go anywhere without it. After applying the oil, Lait Creme Concentre and the eye cream I pat the Flash Balm into my skin and wait five minutes before putting my foundation on.

After not really bothering too much with my skin care, I feel like I’m getting a bit obsessed and these four steps will soon become eight. If your skin has a tendency to get oily as the day goes on, or it’s acne prone too, maybe give these products a go. Everything is none comedogenic so it won’t make your skin congested, while still being rich enough to keep your skin looking tip top.
