With the cold weather becoming more apparent our face might become dry, itchy and raw,  It may be challenging to take proper care of your skin even under the best of circumstances. But in those winter months when the weather turns cold and humidity levels drop, keeping your skin hydrated might become even more tricky.

So here I’ve listed my top 4 face moisturisers to help combat that ‘WINTER ITCH

This Moisturiser boasts 7 BENEFITS!! These are

  1. Visibly, smoothens fine lines and wrinkles
  2. Helps, skin to maintain its moisture
  3. Evens, skin tone appearance
  4. Minimises, the look of pores
  5. Smoothens, and evens out skin texture

I have to say I’m a sucker for a classic and Olay is just that!

2. Clinique, Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly.

      What It Does

  • 24-hour hydrator with Clean Shield Technology™ locks in the good—like moisture—and filters out the bad.

  • Unique water-jelly texture feels fresh, penetrates quickly.
  • Oil-free formula is non-sticky, leaves no residue.
  • Skin is smooth, strong and healthy with a pure, clean glow. 

This moisturiser feels incredible on and is super lightweight, i really feel hydrated and fresh ready for the day when i use this, it doesn’t leave a feeling that the product is still on your face, so touching my face after i’m not left with a sticky feeling. I also love it has pollution protection, that’s a must in today’s environment.“pure genius”. Clinique is yet another classic brand and a prestige company but they are on a mission to be known as the most trusted Prestige beauty brand in the world.

Teddy Coats

Blame it on the cold or whatever you want but it seems Teddy coats are all over A|W18 and I can see why! what a perfect coat for the cold! or just to feel like you’re permanently being cuddled by a big soft ‘teddy bear’. The perfect item for comfort and style rolled into one, the main fashion rule for wearing teddy coats the right way is to keep your look as minimalist as possible, especially if you have picked a bold, oversized ‘teddy’. The most iconic ‘Teddy Coat’ being the Ivory ! Is great teamed with a pair of cool Mom jeans.

I’ve yet to own one because I’m so indecisive! but I will get one soon! PROMISE. In the mean time I’ve found my top 5, SO PLEASE HELP ME DECIDE!
