Winter Skin Care Routine

Tarte Maracuja Oil - This stuff works miracles, let me tell you. It's used for moisturizing and firming up the skin on your face and neck, while clearing up your complexion and leaving you with an absolutely radiant glow! I have the rollerball applicator which is so much easier to apply and there's tons of oil in it anyway. I use this right before I go to bed, after washing off all my makeup. If you have oily skin, it may seem weird to apply an oil to your face, but this will clear that all up within a matter of days! It also works with dry skin, hydrating that as well. If it can work with any skin type then it's a miracle worker in my book.

Clean and Clear Deep Action Cream Cleanser - The typical cream cleanser. Just wet your face, rub it in, and rinse it off. I usually do this is the shower at night. I use this mostly around my T-zone where blackheads gather and after 2-3 nights of this, they clear right up! Nice to have and very inexpensive.

Clean and Clear Morning Burst Hydrating Facial Cleanser - I usually use this on mornings where I wake up feeling..'blah'. I don't really feel like this does much for my skin and probably won't repurchase, but it is nice to have.

Lush Tea Tree Water - I've raved about this on previous posts, but this is still a staple for me. I imagine this is especially great in the summer to spritz on as well. In the winter, I use this before bed with a couple squirts directly on my face and I'm good to go. It's awesome at balancing out my skin tone and clearing out blemishes.

Lush Ocean Salt - One of my all time favorite exfoliators. It's infused with lime and vodka to brighten up the skin and unblock pores as well as avocado and coconut to hydrate the skin. It contains sea minerals and tons of sea salt to exfoliate your skin. I know that for me with my sensitive skin, this product can be a little difficult to use. It hurts my face, leaving it feeling a bit raw afterwards, but the effects are so amazing that the little pain is worth the gain!

Lush Charity Pot - As you can probably tell by now, I'm a major Lushie. What can I say? Like I said in a previous post, I received a small pot of this for Christmas which I use everyday and still have. I will definitely be buying this in the full sized version next time I get around to Lush. This unbelievably moisturizing lotion can be used all over the body and all profits (yeah that's right, 100% of them!) go to various grassroots charities depending on whichever one is labeled on the pot. It's a win-win for everyone, right?

The Body Shop Mango Body Butter - This silky, butter like lotion is great for dry skin. Super hydrating, the exotic mango scent can transport you to a tropical island. I originally got this for my mom and now we both share it. This is also great to use on your cuticles! If you want to splurge some more, another great cuticle treatment my mom loves is Lush's Lemony Flutter. *Sadie Saxton voice* You're welcome.

Your lips are part of your skin too! For my lips, I love using Maybelline's BabyLips in Peach KissBurts Bee's Tinted Lip Balm in Petunia and Lush's Honey Trap Lip Balm.

On another note, I'm thinking of posting on more days than just Mondays and Fridays. What do you guys think?

And like always, all pictures are from Tumblr.

Ciao for now, muffins!
