Top 5 Moisturisers for Winter ❄⛄❄

Hey everyone,

In today's post I thought that I'd show you some of my favourite moisturisers to use during the winter as our skin can get very dry and may be in need of some TLC ♥

I recommend buying sets or asking for sets that contain miniature size moisturisers/lotions as they're really good for travelling and popping into your handbag :D (maybe you can add some of these onto your Christmas wishlist or buy them as a gift for yourself as a little treat)

Hope you enjoy...lets get into it...♥

Number 1.

This first moisturiser I have been using to prevent my skin becoming very dry and I've been loving's Clinique's 'dramatically different moisturising lotion' 

I apply this moisturiser all over my face after taking excess makeup off and is very lightweight and not at all greasy or hard to sink in. 

I would also say this moisturiser is good if you don't like scented lotions as it's scent is very subtle and hardly noticeable.


Number 2.

This next moisturiser I have also been using all over my face after and before applying makeup.... Benefit's 'Total Moisture facial cream'

The difference between this moisturiser and the one mentioned above is that this is more of a deeper moisturiser that I tend to you if the day is dryer or colder. Whereas the Clinique one above is lighter and I tend to use it everyday.

I own 2 of Benefit's moisturisers and they both have a scent to them but after a while it does fade away which is good although I do love the smell and wouldn't mind if it lasted longer.


Number 3. 

I have been borrowing this lotion from my mum and have been loving it! It's Neom's 'Refresh Organic Hand Lotion'. 

If you don't like hand lotions with scents then I wouldn't opt for this lotion as it has an obvious organic smell of 'Sicilian lemon and Fresh Basil', but I love this smell as its very natural and refreshing. It is a medium consistency but sinks into the skin very well and is good to have sat at your dressing table or desk to apply throughout the day :)


Number 4.

Another one of my favourite moisturisers is Soap and Glory's 'The Righteous Butter'. Soap and Glory has such a unique smell that is very fresh.

This lotion is one of the thicker lotions that I tend to use for both my body and hands but this small travel size pot stays in my bag when I'm out and about so I can reapply. 


Number 5. 

Finally....number 5, this last 'moisturiser' is a moisturiser in a different sense as it removes the dry skin when your scrub it onto your skin and wash it off. From a brand I wouldn't tend to buy beauty products from...Marks & Spencer..their 'Pomegranate Hand & Body Polish'.

This 'polish' came in a set of four shower gels and other bits as a present a few birthdays ago and I just recently I rediscovered it in the bottom of my wardrobe and I love it again.

It leaves a very soft feel to your skin and has a very subtle scent which isn't at all overwhelming!
