Now that it's like -20 degrees (not really) where I live my skin gets really dry, so I decided to try out the popular Creme de Corps from Kiehls. I reeeeally like it as its so moisturizing without feeling sticky. Also their #1 lipbalm is an important item this winter (I mean any other time of the year but it's cold af right now). It's like the Glossier Balm dotcom which I also really love. Just a scentless, clear lipbalm that protects the lips from drying out. With this Kiehls purchase I received a travel size of the midnight recovery concentrate and can't wait to try it. Nars Soft Matte Complete Concealer is my new favorite as it covers everything but it doesn't feel heavy on the skin around my eyes. Now on to perfume... I'm sooo picky when it comes to scents. I've tried everything and my favorites right now are Le Labos Rose 31 and Byredo Gypsy Water (which I'll hopefully get for Christmas, can't wait!) For my hair the Ouai Texturizing spray is great, because my hair is so straight and soft it never holds a hairstyle and this really helps. What are your essentials for this winter?
Here are some of my current beauty favorites. I've been loving the Ouai Hair oil as it's so light but smoothes frizz like no other and it smells like Ibiza to me because I've used it on vacation for the first time! Boy brow keeps my brows in shape and make them appear fuller. Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer is an all time favorite, however I want to try the new Soft Matte Complete Concealer next. 2% BHA Skin Perfecting Liquid by Paula's Choice is the best skin care product that exist and will be repurchased forever. Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser is new to me though I really enjoy using it. Last but not least my newest goodie: Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt, ugh I've been using Lush's BIG for years but wanted to try something new as a clarifying treatment and this is amazinggg! Rituals candle burning in the back.
I've been using this oil for six months now and I can say that this is the best face oil I've ever used.
My skin type is combination and this balances my skin out so well that I don't have oily nor dry parts anymore.
Squalane oil is clear and doesn't have a scent at all. I put about 2-3 drops on my face every evening after cleansing. You could even use this in the daytime as it's so light but moisturizing. I wear sunscreen every.single.day so I either put it under my SPF or like I said I use it at the end of the day before I go to sleep. The oil sinks in so nicely and when I wake up my skin is hydrated and healthy looking. You can either mix it with a moisturizer or use it on its own.
Indie Lee's description of Squalane: Protects your skin from ultraviolet rays and moisturizes to prevent dryness and chapping which results in a finer, more textured skin. Squalane oil is also an excellent carrier of additional nutrients because it penetrates the dermis layer much more deeply than other topical creams.
I would suggest trying out this oil as it will suit most skin types. If you want to try out a more affordable alternative I would say go for The Ordinary Squalane Oil it's basically the same thing!
