The Kiehl's Ultra Facial Deep Moisture Balm is perfect for autumn and winter with the way it melts into your skin, leaving it hydrated and soft. The balm is super rich, and is ideal for sensitive or troubled skin. I also like how only a minimal amount of product needs to be used at a time, making it a cost-effective option! Plus, Kiehl's is just gorgeous, always.
Speaking of making the most out of your skincare products in order to be kinder to your bank balance, you should check out the Elizabeth Arden Superstart Skin Renewal Booster. This product acts as a booster in two different ways, the first being that it will help your other products (serum, facial oil, moisturiser, etc) perform more effectively (yusss). It also boosts your own skin to help repair its barrier. The fragrance-free formulation makes it ideal for ALL skin types, which I love!
Everyone loves NZ skincare brand Trilogy, & their Ultra Hydrating Facial Cream is an ideal winter moisturiser. It contains deliciousness like Rosapene™, manuka honey, and lavender, and while it's definitely rich, it absorbs like a dream. I love applying this before I put my makeup on in the morning, as it keeps my face hydrated ALL day- as well as keeping my makeup looking fresh.
Another brilliant day time moisturiser is the CosMedix Hydrate+. It contains a broad spectrum protection SPF 17, as well as numerous antioxidants which will make your skin GLOW. I firmly feel that more New Zealanders need to get onboard with this brand- all of their products contain active ingredients which are very potent- they WILL make a difference to your skin!
If you like using SPF in your skincare, & you're a huge Lushie, you will LOVE the brand new Lush Million Dollar Moisturiser. I can't get over how good it smells- like toffee/caramel/chocolate, & how great it feels on my skin. It's very very rich (a good thing for winter skincare) & it contains almond oil, sesame oil, oatmeal & honey- as well as tonka absolute AND rosewood oil (which is antiseptic). A must try!
The latest offering from Estee Lauder is ridiculously divine- look at that gold packaging. The Revitalising Supreme Global Anti-Aging Creme isn't just a pretty face, it uses IntuiGen Technology (fancy) to hydrate, treat, protect & firm your skin...all the while making you look glowing and fresh. It also helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines (thank goodness), & has the most amazing silky texture. I'm addicted :O
