#26 Winter Skincare Essentials


1. Cleansing oil helps melt away your makeup without drying out your skin. This is definitely an essential for any winter beauty regime. You can try Shu Uemura’s Ultime8 Sublime Beauty Cleansing Oil, which is a combination of 8 precious botanical origin oils, or Boscia’s Makeup-Breakup Cool Cleansing Oil, which is gentle enough for sensitive skin

2. Facial oil has become a big hit in recent years. And this year it’s no difference… To protect your skin from the coming winter, invest in a good facial oil. Fresh’s Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil is a soothing face oil packed with restorative omegas and seabuckthorn oil to preserve a youthful appearance. Tarte’s Pure Maracuja Oil may sound a bit strange but its effectiveness is proved.

3. Good exfoliators are your best friends in winter months, especially when all the dry skin cells stack up on your skin causing clogged pores and stop other moisturising creams and facial oils from penetrating deep into other skin layers. This winter you can try some chemical exfoliators such as Kate Somerville’s Exfolikate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment or AmorePacific’s Treatment Enzyme Peel to name a few.

4. Do you know that your lip skin is far thinner than anywhere else in your body? Yes it is, and it needs extra care. Remember to apply a thick lip balm before bedtime or use a moisture lip treatment during the day (Recommendations: Dior’s Creme De Rose Smoothing Plumping Lip Balm; Fresh’s Sugar Lip Treatment)

5. And finally don’t forget to pamper yourself with a good hydrating mask each week. Splurge on Fresh’s Rose Face Mask, which soothes and calms your delicate winter skin; or try out Origin’s Drink-up Intensive Mask

  1. Wait for your review on Fresh since I heard a lot of good things about their products. Do these lip balms cause peeling? Hydramax, Lip Glow and Philosophy Kiss Me tonight make my lips peel off like crazy, I have to do an extra step in the morning to remove dead skin cell, arghhhh….

    If only I could use facial oil in Sai Gon without being like a oil pan after just 10 mins =((((.

    1. Im eager to try out Fresh products 😀 especially the seaberry oil. Im not sure about their lip balms (still waiting for the chance ^^).. Well my lips are quite dry and chapped in the winter as well, just now I tried the Korres lip butter and so far so good, very hydrating and didn’t make the dead skin cells on the lips peel off (FYI http://www.sephora.com/lip-butter-P199109)

      About the face oil, normally I just use oil at night time 🙂 If you really wanna be “on trend” with face oils, how about trying the Clarins’ Lotus Oil 😛

  2. Hehe, I will let it for the winter when I’m in Hanoi or go abroad…and thanks for your reccomendation. Lucky that Clarins has sample for customers here.
