• 2016 Winter Face Routine

    This week you will notice almost every post I will mention Prague in some respect and that is because I just returned a couple of days ago from a girl’s weekend getaway and I am so happy I went.




     Whilst in Prague, it snowed the entire weekend and it was blooming freezing. It was because of the weather that I decided to share with you all my 2016 winter face routine. I noticed before we left and after we returned from our tour of Prague that my face routine has been true to it’s word and has been keeping my face moisturised and protected from the harsh winter we have been having as of late.

    I have a list of products that I have been using for the last 12 months and all the products I have tested have some how helped and improved my skin in some capacity. I have mentioned several times over the last 12 months how I review so many products that I hardly buy any new ones to try out myself but that I always have backup products which are all from the Simple skin range.

    The following products have really stood out for me and are now part of my 2016 winter face routine

    Rose Glow Cleanser – Last year I was sent this cleanser for review and because I had other cleansers to try I only used it for a month and stopped. For the last 12 months I have worked my way through all my cleansers and now I am suing the rose glow cleanser which is honestly an amazing cleanser, next to my simple skin range daily cleanser it is one of the best I have tried so far. You can read my review of it last year

    180 cosmetics Hyaluronic Acid serum – I love all Hyaluronic Acid based serums because for me so far they work and never let me down but I must say the 180 cosmetics serum is my number one favourite. Whilst in Prague I took this serum with me and I am so amazed at how it protected my skin during the snow and the below freezing temperatures. My face looked (and still do) absolutely amazing and I am attributing it to this awesome serum and the Simple skin range moisturiser.

    Last year and year before I was fortunate enough to be sent some awesome moisturisers to try out, so many made an impact on me but the one with the most lasting impression outside Oz natural herbal infused moisturiser is the Tepez cream that ASDM Beverly Hills sent me to review last month. Most face creams protect you for a few hours and your face is then left to fend fro itself for the rest of the day. Other face creams require reapplication to maintain the protect barrier, Tepez cream as you might know from my review (+giveaway to win your very own) is a healing cream which doesn’t only moisturises your face but heals any old scars whilst looking after your face.

    All of these products have been really amazing for my skin especially during this harsh winter.

      I hate it when my skin gets dry because of the cold. Good thing there are product that helps in times as such

      • January 29, 2016 / 3:17 pm

        Good thing indeed

      I do prefer natural moisturizers. My skin does not have much worries on winter, but on summer I get affected with a lot with skin related issues. You look so great in this picture. 180 cosmetic serum sounds like a wonderful product to go for. Will definitely check this out for sure.

        Thank you Lisa the serum is awesome

      Sounds like a great routine. Thankfully we haven’t faced a harsh winter.

      • January 28, 2016 / 12:21 pm

        Thanks, you’re so lucky it’s been bad here

      Winter skin is a beast. My hands have been my biggest struggle.

      On another note, my friend just moved from California to Prague.

        Oh wow, now that’s a huge move and I hope she likes it. Yes winter can she harsh on our skin

      My winter skin is always so dry and uncomfortable. Thank you for sharing your post

      • January 27, 2016 / 7:20 pm

        You welcome, winter time can be really harsh

    8. January 27, 2016 / 1:26 pm

      You look so happy in those pictures! They made me smile! I will have to try that Rose Glow stuff – sounds like something I could really use!

      I agree, taking care of your skin during winter is so important. My skin gets so itchy so it’s a must for me.

      • January 27, 2016 / 12:07 pm

        I used to itch bad in winter when I was kid but not so much now

    10. January 27, 2016 / 7:42 am

      Winter can leave your skin super dry. I’m glad you found products that work.

      • January 27, 2016 / 7:57 am

        It truly can and I am thankful for these products

    11. January 27, 2016 / 5:59 am

      Winter can be very harsh on the skin right?

      Good thing you have found the perfect product for your skin.

      • January 27, 2016 / 6:00 am

        It truly can, me too they are working wonders

    12. January 27, 2016 / 4:08 am

      Seems like you had a great time. I really need a thick moisturizer during the winter time. I also have to exfoliate my lips more when it is so cold outside. BeautiControl makes a great product called Lip Apeel and their lip balm that comes with it is the BEST!

      • January 27, 2016 / 4:17 am

        I need to look into that, thanks for recommending

    13. January 27, 2016 / 3:49 am

      I like the photos! Looks like you had so much fun.

      • January 27, 2016 / 4:17 am

    15. January 27, 2016 / 2:08 am

      I need to try that herbal infused moisturizer. My face gets so dry in the winter. I really need to step up my winter face routine.

      • January 27, 2016 / 4:15 am

      Hydrating is always important, my face tends to dry up during this season so I make sure I have a moisturizer that I can rely on. Thanks for sharing your routine!

      • January 27, 2016 / 4:15 am

        You welcome, I am always working on hydration since I am bad at it but I try

      • January 26, 2016 / 6:28 pm

        It was an amazing experience

    18. January 26, 2016 / 4:51 pm

      My skin is so dry I could totally use one of these. It looks like you all had a great time in Prague. We like to travel a lot ourselves and keeping our skin from drying out while we are flying is one thing that is difficult to do.

      • January 26, 2016 / 5:01 pm

        We had lovely time in Prague and I am very happy with my products that kept my face moisturised
