My Autumn Skincare Picks!

Hey beaut's!

It's that time of the year again where we need to repair and nourish our little faces and seeing as I love things all autumn/winter I couldn't resist doing a post dedicated to some of the skincare products that I know are going to be well loved by me this season, and even better news is that their all super affordable, yay! Currently I'm dealing with mix of dry-combination skin but every autumn/winter is the same for me, as soon as the cold weather hits that's it - my skin is literally sucked of all of it's moisture and I turn into one dry skinned gal! So in a nutshell every product I use has to have some element of moisture too it because my skin needs all the help it can get, trust me!
So lets kick things off with cleansing, I've been loving the Nivea Sensitive 3-in-1 Micellar Water* (£3.29), not only does this remove my makeup with ease but it soothes and hydrates at the same time and never leaves my skin feeling dry or tight which a lot of other micellar water's I've tried do! It's also safe to use around the eyes and lips which is fab because you can literally swipe everything off your face at once! After cleansing I love to tone my skin, I actually used to skip this step but my skin really benefits from toning at this time of the year and my favourite right now is the Garnier Skin Active Soothing Toner with 96% Rose Water* (£2.69). What I love about this particular toner is that it's made from 96% natural origin ingredients making it perfect for dry and sensitive skin, my skin always feels so squeaky clean and super soft after using this beauty, it smells divine too!
Moisturising is a crucial step for me and makes sure that not only is my skin nourished but that my makeup has a nice base to sit on top of, two of my favourite day creams at the moment are the Simple Replenishing Rich Moisturiser* (£3.59) and the Garnier SkinActive Hydrate & Soothe Day Cream* (£4.49), both of these are so gentle on my skin but give my skin a huge dose of moisture whilst also restoring softness and suppleness. I honestly don't think you can go wrong with either Simple or Garnier to be honest, they both do exactly what they say on the tin! My night cream of choice is the Olay Double Action Sensitive Night Cream* (£4.19), this stuff is brilliant if you need a lot of nourishment, you can slather it on thickly if your getting a lot of dry patches and when you wake in the morning they've vanished, it's bloody amazing stuff!
Finally you cant forget about those hands and that pout during the autumn/winter months, I don't know about you but my hands really take a battering when it's cold, I'm talking dryness, chapped knuckles and they bleed, yup it's bad! The only thing that works when my hands are that bad is the Neutrogena Hand Cream* (£3.35), now theres nothing glamorous about this stuff but it really does work wonders, it's super thick and does have a slight greasy feeling afterwards but if your persevere you'll love the results, it's amazing stuff! For lips I've always been a Carmex* girl, it gives long lasting relief when my lips are dry and chapped and the cherry flavour is so lush, I also much prefer the squeezable tube option than the pots Carmex do as their so much easier to use when your on the go!

You can find all of the skincare I mentioned plus lots more on the website HERE.

  1. Hi Hayley! You are so right about skin needing extra nourishment and care at this time of year. It's so tricky to stay on top of the extra issues that come up around now. It's great to see some lovely budget freindly products here. Carmex is one of my fave lip balm brands. The Olay Double Action night cream sounds like exactly what I need to take care of my dry patches of skin. I haven't used anything from Olay for a while but I used to love their rich formulas and their beauty fluid was a favourite of mine for a while back in the day! Haha!
