5 wonderful blogger-recommended winter skincare buys

Does the thought of winter skin conjure up images of super dry lips, tight skin and absolutely zero glow? Ugh. I feel you. Winter can really take its toll on our gorgeous summer glows when it whips around in about October. But, with the help of some incredible products, we can keep the look and feel of healthy skin all year round. Here are 5 products that beauty bloggers have been loving during the chilly months:

Easy like Emma Hardie

Just because it’s not sunny and glorious during the daytime in the winter, doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t still all be protecting our skin with an SPF. You can pick up the lovely Emma Hardie Amazing Face Protect & Prime from Feelunique and it has incredible SPF 30 protection. This babe is a gorgeous day moisturiser with an added action of being a great makeup primer too, it’s two in one! It has the all-important vitamin E - the ultimate moisturising vitamin as well as oat extract to keep everything silky smooth and protected from sun damage and cold weather.

Be gone, blemishes!

If you’re concerned about oily or blemish-prone skin during the winter then let me introduce you to La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo +. This moisturiser is fantastic for giving the skin everything it needs without overloading it. As someone with combination skin, I love the La Roche Posay range because their products are not in the slightest bit drying - they moisturise and quench your skin whilst still helping to control sebum and blemish-causing oils.

Glossier goodies

Haven’t heard of the millennial pink dream that is Glossier? Get out. It was the brand of 2017 that we saw emerge from the beauty-sphere! The balm dot com is something that I’ve seen all over Instagram and blogs over the winter period. Chapped lips? Dry cuticles? Need an emergency highlight? Glossier’s multipurpose balm is your answer. Now to get them as a partner on UNiDAYS…. Guys - you have a job to do!

The power of Pixi

A personal favourite of mine this season has been the Pixi Glow Tonic. It leaves skin truly glowing as it uses ginseng and fructose to tone and firm the skin whilst removing dead skin cells to reveal your true beautiful skin underneath those nasties. This has been a blogger cult favourite for a while now and I can see why. It’s so refreshing and gives you back a little bit of your glow that can be rudely taken away by office heating units and freezing cold blustery wind. It’s a yes from me.

Sleep tight with This Works

Finally, this isn’t necessarily skincare but sleep does have such an important part to play in the appearance of your skin and your overall health so I thought it was definitely something to include in this line-up. This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray is a gorgeous smelling spray that contains lavender and chamomile oils. Simply spray onto your pillow before you get into bed and allow it to relax you and let you enjoy a lovely night’s sleep. Then, say hello to looking and feeling uber refreshed the next morning.

There we have it, my glowy babes. 5 products that these bloggers are obsessed with and they’d definitely recommend. Plus, you can use your UNiDAYS membership and get money off almost all of them - winner!
