Current Winter Skincare Favourites

Hey everyone, hope you all had an amazing Christmas/holidays. :) I am unfortunately back at work today for a few hours followed by another break but I thought I'd tell you about my current skincare favourites I've been using as of late. I've blogged about a few of them individually so I will link the review next to the name if so.

Nivea Daily Essentials Express Hydration Primer (review here) - I love this! I've nearly finished this after using it daily for a solid 3 months and will be re-purchasing immediately. It's a step quicker in the mornings, it moisturises just as well as a separate routine, as well as primes my skin for makeup. I cannot fault this at all. Well worth £4.99!

Origins GinZing (review here) - I've reviewed this as part of a set that I bought, loved and wish I could still get hold of! I love all the items in this set and Origins is fast becoming one of my favourite skincare brands. It wakes me up as well as tricks everyone else into thinking I'm wide awake when I've had little sleep. I've nearly finished this boo, it's pretty expensive let's face it at £21 but I do love it.

Etat Pur Apigenin A08 (review here) - Etat Pur is a brand I loved and had a phase of using lots of then keep forgetting about it but this product stays in my toiletry bag. Lately it's hard to tell if it works due to my GinZing making me look more awake, but prior to using this it did make my dark circles reduce. Who knows if it really works, but I feel better for using it at least.

Nivea Visage Daily Essentials Day Cream Dry/Sensitive Skin - I use this as an evening cream as opposed to a day cream, just because I feel it's still a little thick for my morning routine. The normal/combination skin version is nourishing enough for me to use in the morning when I don't use my Nivea Daily Essentials Primer. I love the smell of it, it's so fresh and my Boyfriend always comments how lovely it smells whenever I use it.

Origins Modern Friction (review here) - This is a recent addition to my skincare routine. I used this a few times, liked it then thought it didn't make much of a difference to my skin so stopped. My skin feels really smooth after using it and it's not too harsh that it makes my skin red like some other Microdermabrasion products. I'm not sure I'll re-purchase this but it's lasted me a good while.

Origins VitaZing (review here) - I lovee this product!! I don't think words can describe it actually. When you're as pale as me, purely using this can make you look more alive, healthy and glowing, trust me! I use this daily, my only gripe about it if I'm being really picky is that sometimes around my hairline the product can gather and look like I'm either a, dirty or b, haven't rubbed the cream in properly. This is another expensive product, but the product shown above is a trial size and this is nearly empty but I've had this a good few months since I posted the review and I've not even got onto the full size bottle yet. This will last me a good while longer and I rarely wear foundation over it these days.

What's your favourite skincare products? Do you find your skin type shift in the Winter months?
