Winter Skincare Favourites

Love, Catherine | Winter Skincare Favourites

Seeing as this little old blog is predominately about my love obsession for beauty, it's a bit strange that I've never written a post dedicated solely to skincare (I think, don't sue me if I have okay), so I thought it was about time I fixed that! I don't always use a heap of products on my oily skin but during the Winter time, especially this year, I've found my skin becomes a bit dehydrated (whilst still being oily) and it just needs a little skincare hug! 


Winter Skincare Favourites | Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist
Jurlique |  Rosewater Balancing Mist*
I've been loving this beautiful Rosewater Mist ever since I received a couple of bottles a while ago. It replenishes and tones your skin and feels so lovely and refreshing to spritz over the face! It really soothes my skin and I just love it. I'm a huge fan of floral rose fragrances and this scent is so gorgeous and luxurious!


Winter Skincare Favourites | Rose & Co. Hand Cream
Rose & Co. |  Hand Cream*
I'm going to just admit that I have an absolute tonne of hand creams scattered about my bedroom, some half used, some even unused eek! It's the one thing that seems to just build up until I realise I have far too many that I just don't use, so I end up off loading them to my mum who will appreciate them far more than I could. That being said, this little pink tube from Rose & Co. is pretty much the only hand cream I've been reaching for and I keep it next to my bed! It feels really lovely and silky, sinks into the skin very quickly (I can't stand greasy hand creams that stick about), and leaves my hands feeling baby soft. It also smells divine, another rose scented product...I can't resist!


Winter Skincare Favourites | Kiehls Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado
Kiehls |  Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado
I don't know who my skin thinks it is at the moment but I've suddenly developed eczema...underneath my eyes! It goes through stages of being super red and sore, to really dry and flaky and looks terrible when I apply makeup over the top. It's honestly really getting me down because it looks pretty gross and I've never really experienced any kind of dry skin before, so it's completely alien territory for me! I have heard that you can randomly become allergic to products that you had no problems with before, so I've switched up my concealer to see if it will help. In the meantime though I thought it best to upgrade my eye cream to only the most highly praised out there: the Kiehls Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado!
It's a super thick, nourishing eye cream (much thicker than I'd expected) and it breathes a sigh of relief to my sore under-eyes. I can't say my eczema had cleared up yet unfortunately, but it certainly helps to soothe the area!


Winter Skincare Favourites | Caudalie Vinosource Moisturisers
Caudalie |  Vinosource Moisturisers*
Of course I can't go a whole skincare post and not mention any kind of moisturiser! I'm actually really fussy when it comes to face creams, as I have oily skin, I hate super thick products that leave a residue behind and take forever to sink into the skin and it can be hard to find one that doesn't do that, but is hydrating at the same time. My favourites that I am obsessed with are these Vinosource moisturisers from Caudalie. I particularly love the  Moisturizing Mattifying Fluid which quenchs my skin, but is lightweight and sinks in really quickly, perfect as a base for makeup! I've almost run out of this one so I will 100% be purchasing it again. I also have the  Moisturizing Sorbet, which is like a step up from the Mattifying Fluid I would say, I love this one for when I feel my skin needs that extra boost, especially in the evenings!

What are your favourite skincare products?

  1. They're such good picks. I haven't tried the Jurlique Rose Water mist but it's on my list of things to pick up in the near future - everyone raves about it! Your photos are so so pretty <3

  2. That is such a bummer about the eczema! I've started to develop it a little on my hands every now and again when I don't keep up on them with heavy moisturizer, especially now that the weather is getting colder. The joys of aging when your skin just decides to go through some drastic changes. It isn't fun!! Plus, being a beauty junkie and always trying new products doesn't help. It's always a fun mystery to try to figure out what is making your skin freak out. I hope this eye cream and trying a new concealer helps!! I don't know if they carry the brand Cera Ve where you are, but I always hear good things about that brand from people who are struggling with eczema. Might be worth checking out if you're still having issues!

    That face mist sounds like absolute heaven. I've been working my way through a coconut water and a rose water one but I feel like I need to give this a try when I'm done with those!

    1. It's literally appeared out of nowhere a few months ago and it won't go away :-( maybe it is just a sign of me ageing haha! Aw thank you so much for the recommendation, I will definitely check that brand out! xo

  3. I have both oily and dry skin and it's so difficult to find something that'll help both! These products sound lovely and I may have to try a couple of the things that you've mentioned. And with your hand cream obsession, I'm the exact same except with lip balms! I have some half used, some not even opened, some next to my bed and some in my purse. I even found 2 in my school bag that I emptied after finishing school! Anyways, I really do hope you find something for the eczema under your eyes, it must definitely not have been the nicest surprise!

    1. I feel as though my skin is gradually becoming much more combination than it used to be! Ooh you'll have to let me know if you try anything :-) Haha the weird thing is, I'm not even obsessed with hand creams! They seem to just collect up for some reason haha. Thank you, perhaps I should do a blog post about it if I ever find something! xo

    2. I don't know what's worse, dry, oily or combination! I'll definitely let you know when I pick one of these up! I received some lovely hand creams from L'Occitane for Christmas last year and I love them! I've got 5 hand creams at the moment, not sure if that's a lot or not hahaha. Also I've just mentioned you and your blog in my latest blog post! xo

  7. The Rose & Co hand cream packaging is gorgeous! I love the Kiehls Avacado Creamy Eye Treatment, it's a life saver for my dry skin. I suffer with eczema and when I have a bad flare up, I use hydrocortisone so if you haven't already, get some to see if it'll clear it up for you xx

  9. Is it just a coincidence that all your picks fit into your pink theme or does your mind just subconsciously choose pink things always? :-)

    1. Well I do have a lot of pink things haha. Of course it's all just coincidence, it's just a shame the eye cream isn't pink isn't it! xo

  10. I really want to try the Jurlique mist and I'm surprised to see that the Kiehl's eye cream isn't *as* expensive as I thought it would be! The Clinique eye cream that I use at the moment (All About Eyes) is more expensive than this and has nearly ran out, so I will for sure be purchasing this Kiehl's eye cream instead! Thanks for sharing xo
