The Skincare Post: Moisture & Hydration


Moisture and hydrate are two words I like a lot in the winter, well actually all year round. These are three products I swear by to get me through those dry days. All of these products serve different purposes and even if there is a little dry patch you cannot get rid of, trust me, one of these definitely will get rid of that! 

Origins Make a Different Night gel-cream is a new addition to my skincare routine, I thought it worked well with Clinique Moisture Surge (which was reviewed here a few weeks back). I still am on the look out for a thicker night cream for the time being, this does the job. I put it on straight after my nightly routine and then again before bed, just to make sure I'm fully hydrated in the morning.
For the body, body butters are the one for me, but Vaseline Cocoa Body Butter is the best one I've ever tried. Both my mum and sister use it too and I know they love it. Use it straight after the shower/bath and it will leave you feeling silky smooth.
Embryolisse Essential Dry Skin Balm was bought on a bit of a whim. When I was in Paris for my 18th, I didn't quite fully understand the glorious french pharmacies so I didn't take full advantage (I need another trip to stock up on everything), however I did pick this little one up. I think I paid a whopping 15 euro for this but there's the only slightest dint inside, so it's definitely lasting me a life time. It wasn't until recently when I watched a video with Lisa Eldridge was talking about it and I found more about it. Any bits on your body or face you have an extremely dry patch, rub some of this onto it and I can assure you that after a few times of using this, it will have gone. Around the edge of my nose, I get quite dry at times, especially in the winter and this has solved it. I use it every day now to make sure it doesn't come back!

Is there any essential products you use to keep hydrated?

Also, some exciting news (well exciting for me), I now have a Facebook page for you all to go and like so that I can update people of things going on without the limit of 140 characters (ahem, Twitter). My page is called Bonjour Luce and you can find it here! I'd be really happy if you were to go and like it :-)
