I have sensitive skin and in winter my rather normal skin tends to become very dry and therefore needs an extra dose of moisture. as you can read from the title I use different creams in winter than I use in summer and if I am not using a cream I am using a dry oil – like the one from LUBEX anti-age or the one from Kiehls – and if that is not the case either I am using a cream mask over night. after cleaning my face with either a cleansing oil or a cleansing balm I apply toner and then my skin is ready for the cream. try to wash your hands before scooping cream out of the container. unfortunately all the creams I use at the moment are not to squeeze and thats really a negative thing when you have sensitive skin. you want to be sure that your cream is free from bacteria or germs. but the advantage of these containers is that you can scoop every last tiny part out and can use the jars for DIY things like making your own candles or creams. the SHISEIDO cream came with a tiny spatula. I use this to apply all the creams and I wash it with very hot water after every use.
if you love almonds you are going to love this moisturising cream by KORRES, a greek brand. (product are made in Greece) 2
if your skin has lost the glow you had during summer then you are going to love the glow revival cream by SHISEIDO, a japanese brand. (but the product is made in France) 3
if your skin is very dry and needs more comfort then you are going to love this comforting cream by L’Occitane, a french brand. (product made in France)
what do you use to protect your hair? I have so far tried many different products. they are not bad but unfortunately none of them makes me really happy. I often use the heat protection product on dry hair and this makes it not always easy to get the product evenly thru the hair. another problem I have is that these products weight down my hair and make them look flat. I either use the hairdrier or the straightening iron to make wavy or straight hair. I can not say that I dont like the products above its just that they could do more for me than they do. but let me tell you some positive things. because some of these products have an amazing fragrance and they do protect my hair against the heat. my favorite one is at the moment the newest product the MYTHIC OIL and I will have to use it a bit more in order to be able to really compare it to the other ones.
TOLERIANE ULTRA – this is the most sensitive makeupremover that I have ever tried – wow – slightly impressed about this product! it is a gentle product for very sensitive skin and therefore each dose is filled in a little plastic drop/container – lots of trash but I would still repurchase it as it is just simply perfect for my couperose skin!
HYDRAPHASE INTENSE LEGERE – a very very light but still hydrating skincare for everyday – apply day and night and it is perfect for sensitive to normal skin. I have not used this product yet, so I can not tell you whether I liked it or not. I will try it in the next couple of weeks and will hopefully get back to you about it.
aaww.. these products are amazing! they all do their one certain job very perfectly. something against the sun – something for a nice self tan without being exposed to the sun – another nice product that makes you look like you have spent the weekend in the sun with a couple of moves – a CC cream to protect the hair and a super nice soothing cooling aloe gel for the face after a day in the sun!
I am soon packing my bags for my roadtrip to ITALY and for sure I am going to bring these!
