Moisture Replenishing Essentials

DSCN9171Winter has to be the one season I’d rather skip and move along to the next – can that be a thing? The weather definitely plays havoc with my skin and luckily I have found some great products that makes the cold slightly more bearable.

SISLEY NUTRITIVE LIP BALM | It replenishes my lips with moisture and smoothes the surface of my lips like no other. Chapped flaky lips are gone in a day. It’s just the best I’ve come across for instant relief and results.

AESOP RESURRECTION HAND BALM | I adore Aesop, there’s just no way around it. Finally a hand cream that doesn’t feel tacky and sinks in relatively quickly. But the best thing has to be the scent, it’s so invigorating – I’m simply obsessed. Hands are instantly smooth and soft. It has acquired a permanent place in my handbag.

AVEDA INTENSIVE HYDRATING MASQUE | A mask packed with hyaluronic acid which is basically the one ingredient to look for when you want to give your skin a shot of moisture. It’s a clear gel that feels very cooling and soothing on the skin. It works wonderfully overnight as well, which makes mornings less draggy – s.c.o.r.e.

AVENE COLD CREME BODY LOTION | There’s nothing less exciting than body lotion in my opinion. I’m guilty of using body lotion less than I’d like just because laziness gets the better of me. But that was until I discovered this body lotion. The cream itself is not that exciting but it gets the job done: it sinks in quickly and leaves your skin velvety soft. The texture is relatively liquid and it erases dullness in a heart beat. It has a very standard scent but beautiful nonetheless.

    Why didn’t I know that Aveda did skincare? I’m intrigued now! ;)

      I didn’t know either until Ms Hirons mentioned it. Good old Hirons, I love her. It’s fuss-free and does what it says on the tin. And the tube is gigantic! It’s gonna last forever I think, LOL.

    I’m really bad with applying body lotion too but this one from Avene sounds really good :) x

    • Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

      Oh yes, such a bad habit of mine too but Avene managed to change things around. You should try it out and who knows what miracles may happen! ;) X

    LOL the last thing I would use on my body when it’s sub-zero outside is a product labeled “cold” cream! Hehe… I bet it’s a good lotion, though!

    That Sisley lip balm jar is super adorable!

    • Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

      Hahaha, I didn’t thought about that. I like the lotion though and that Sisley balm is my lip saviour! X

    This! I need to remember this! My skin gets so easily dehydrated it’s ridiculous.

    • Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

      Yes, same here. Can’t wait for it to be spring. No more dry and unattractive skin, that’s what I want! X

    Have you tried Aesop Reverence, Alice? Out of the two that’s the one I prefer, but it has a really earthy scent that I’m not sure everyone likes :)

    • Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

      Oh really? Well, I should check it out then and hopefully I like the scent! Otherwise I’ll be sticking with this one … :D X
