HAUL: Winter Essentials

February 07, 2016Saskia C.

As you may have gathered from some of my older posts, I'm not someone who easily sticks to beauty routines. My skin doesn't usually need a lot of pampering anyway, so I consider most beauty products luxury items. Sadly, this winter has been particularly hard on my skin, lips and hands so a small trip to L'Occitane and Lush was in order. Thank god for silver lining.

At L'Occitane I tried about fifteen different kinds of hand cream and decided on lavender and honey as my two favourite scents. The fact that I got a toner for free is pretty exciting since I have never used one in my life. At Lush I got the Popcorn lip scrub and the Ocean Salt face and body scrub. Since I'd also brought in five empty pots, I got a Cupcake face mask for free. Take that, skin!

Even though I have been able to scratch all of these products from my wishlist, I just can't help but keep adding Lush items to it. I'm especially anxious to try the Rub Rub Rub scrub, Shine So Bright cream, and I'm out of my trusty Vanishing Cream so that's going on the list as well. Unlike most people, I'm not overly fond of Lush's bath bombs though. I can't help but feel like I'm dissolving literal money into water.

Do you change your beauty routine in winter? What products and brands do you tend to rely on? I've gone through three different lip balms in the past three months, and no, for once I'm not exaggerating.

  1. I'm like you in the sense I'm not really one for having a beauty/skincare routine. I tend to stick with babywipes and coconut oil. They seem to sort me out without too much fuss.

  2. Im no skincare expert, my skin is good but sensitive so I mostly just use natural oat based bodywash and moisturiser and avoid too much makeup.

  3. I had to start using a daycream because my skin would feel dry , usually I only use a night cream once in a while.
    I've gone through a few lip balms which is new to me... I usually lose them or throw them away after a year or so, but now I'm actually using them up and have to get new ones.
    It's not because there's no snow that this winter isn't hard on the skin.

  4. Oh ok, never thought about the throwing money to water thing with their bathbombs before O_O hope you will enjoy your new treasures!

  5. Every information is great for me this one is also nice thanks for sharing it. online bus ticket booking from delhi
