Skincare routine 2014 Blogger Challenge

Dear diary,

I really don't change my skincare routine from summer to winter as my skin stays pretty much the same: oily. The only dry parts are my hands, as I wash them too often, and my lips.

During winter I apply any regular hand cream/lotion more often (4-5 times a day) and at night I use a more nourishing anti age hand cream that I've been loving recently, sadly I used it up this week and I haven't repurchased it yet.

Collistar anti-age hand treatment:

For lips I'm still on the hunt for the perfect balm, I've tried a lot of different brands including the Nuxe Rêve de miel. Currently I'm using the cherry blossom lip balm by Integrate (Shiseido). What has really helped me over the past months is putting my eye cream on my lips as well. I have the Bubblegum lip scrub from Lush but it hasn't worked for me, mainly because I always forget to use it, lol! I'm on the hunt for the Crème de Rose by Dior but I'm waiting to get a good deal on this as it is pretty expensive.

For the rest I drink a lot of water and take some supplements for hair, skin and nails.

And for an extra skin pampering I love using masks:

As for body care this product has totally changed my life, it's the NIVEA rinse-off body lotion for under the shower.

    1. Thanks, I read yours yesterday, I'm really trying to read all of the entries but it takes time… I'd love to try out the Bioderma. ;)

  2. You're like me! My skin is ridiculously oily but my hands and lips get dry! It's so annoying! I wanted to try Nivea's in shower moisturiser mainly coz I'm lazy but I worry that it won't actually moisturise my skin as the ret of my body can get dry. Garnier's 7 day range is great. That's what I'm currently using.
    Great post!

    1. Thanks for passing by! I've heard amazing things about the tea tree oil but I haven't tried it out yet. I'll follow your recommendation and look out for a tee tree toner as I never use any toner at all so I might as well start now. See you around!
