Autumn Skin Saviours

Whilst I do love Autumn - the crispness in the air, jumpers, the heating on, great TV and getting the slow cooker back on, in the UK from one day to the next the temperature can fluctuate by 10 degrees and you can leave the house in jumper, boots and coat only to be hit with a sweltering heat an hour later. And this temperature fluctuation can play havoc with your skin. And even though it's not proper cold at the moment, my lips and hands are telling me winter is coming as they have suddenly gone very dry.

I was lucky enough to be sent a few things recently, which I've been trying out and think they work perfectly for this time of the year.
Skin Chemists Rose Quartz Hydrating & Illuminating Day Moisturiser

Firstly the colour of this moisturiser is just lovely, although it applies as clear. There is the slightest scent of rose and the formula is light, non sticky and quick to sink in. This day cream is especially great for those of us living in urban and cities area, as it helps to detox and hydrate skin from environmental aggressors. This cream is great for dry skins, or normal skins that need an extra bit of hydrating.
This is an expensive cream but keep an eye on the SkinChemists website as they do have great reductions from time to time. Currently priced at £29.99 available here.

Even though I have combination skin, I do enjoy using a facial oil at night to really hydrate and plump the skin. Some oils are oily that others and this can put people off - applying an oily oil to already oily areas. That's a lot of oil! Well this, also pink coloured, Rose superfood oil is the un-oiliest oil I've tried. It smells lovely and disappears in to the skin quick as a flash and leaves absolutely no residue at all. Available here for £35.90.

(I've just realised that I've got a bit of a rose theme going here!).
BalmKind Alpine Rose & Lysine Lip Balm
Like most people, I will never be found without some sort of lip balm in my bag. Just like headache tablets, you can bet your bottom dollar that if I don't have any, my lips will be cracking and splitting all over the place. So when I was sent this cute lip balm to try out, it couldn't have come at a better time as my lips have started to dry out due to the change in the weather.
Although this is a balm, the liquid just glides on. There is a soft rose scent but not at all overpowering. I'm lucky not to suffer from cold sores but the ingredients of Alpine Rose and Lysine are said to help reduce the occurrence of nasty cold sores.
There are also no bad ingredients in this balm, such as parabens, mineral oils, lanolin and petroleum.
£14.50 available here.

My hands are on the down turn as well. And my cuticles and the skin around the sides of my nails seem to be as thin as paper and about as moisturised. I've previously enjoyed the Botanicals Hand Balm and so was excited to try this specifically targeted hand and nail serum.
This organic oil has a subtle scent, which smells like aniseed to me but I think its the sweet fennel. I love applying this last thing at night so that the oil can sink in and deeply condition my dry hands and cuticles over night. I've been waking up with lovely soft hands and my nails look in better condition.
£14.00 here.
