Current Winter Skincare Favorites (Jan 2016)



1. Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Serum (Rs 1999 | Buy online)

This serum has a thick creamy consistency and it adds instant softness and moisture to the skin. It preps the skin for moisturizer and it also helps retain moisture all day long. It feels nourishing and smoothing but non-greasy on the skin. I’m giving away 3 hampers containing this serum and two other great products from the Regenerist range HERE.

2. The Body Shop Vitamin E Sink-in Moisture Mask (Rs 1195 | Buy online)

This creamy, gel mask is perfect for instant hydration during the winters. I often get rough, dry patches if I’m not regular with my skincare routine and this mask instantly helps nourish and soften the skin. The Vitamin E range from The Body Shop is excellent for relieving winter dryness. I love the Toner from this range as well.

3. The Body Shop Oils of Life Revitalising Facial Oil (Rs 3095 | Buy online)

This new launch by the brand has been one of my favorites this winter because of the delicate and light formula. Its a facial oil but feels more like a serum and doesn’t give a greasy feel to the skin. You can add a couple of drops to your moisturizer for instant hydration. It also softens the skin and when used overnight, you wake up with beautifully soft and moisturized skin. Full review here.

4. Forest Essentials Madhulika Honey Lep (Rs 1475 | Buy online)

This is a gel based face masque and feels very nourishing and fresh on the skin. It contains organic raw honey mixed with orange juice and I really like the citrus scent of this mask. It feels a little sticky because of the honey and takes a while to dry. But it softens dry and dead skin and I like to use a soft towel soaked in warm water to wipe this off, to get rid of all the dead skin.

5. Kama Ayurveda Kumkumadi Facial Scrub (Rs 995 | Buy online)

The Kumkumadi facial scrub has the right consistency for winter use. It feels creamy & luxurious and helps remove dead skin while adding a soft glow to the skin. Because its quite gentle, I like to use this to massage my face for 8-10 minutes before applying a hydration mask. Full review here.

6. Kiehls #1 Lip Balm – Mango (Rs 595 | Buy online)

My lips have been feeling really dry this winter and because of a hectic schedule, I’ve not been very regular with my water intake. I’ve also been loving matte lipsticks over creamy finishes since last year so my lips tend to get a little dehydrated by the end of the day. The Kiehls #1 lip balm does an amazing job of instantly hydrating and plumping the lips. I recently repurchased this in the Mango variant and I’m loving it!

    Great products Ankita. I have my eyes on TBS oils of life 🙂

  4. January 27, 2016 / 2:16 pm

    I would have loved to try TBS Oils of life but given its price tag, I would be in for a major heart-break if it doesn’t suit me.
    I wish they had a mini version of it.

    All the products look so facinating. I wish I can try them but sadly those products aren't available here.
    I really really wanna give that serum a shot. Thats the only hope for my extremely dry skin.

    The body shop face oil sounds like a great product for winters but the price tag is rather high… very high.

    I am new here and for the lack of a better place to post this query, I am posting it here.

    I usually have oily skin but it gets dry during winters. It's also prone to blackheads all year round. Since I left home for studies and work, my skin has lost all its radiance. It has been 8 years since I left home and now the condition of my skin has deteriorated so much that on most days it looks pale and sickly.

    Can anybody here suggest a skincare routine with a list of products that I can use to restore the glow in my face?
    Any help would be highly appreciated.
