Seasonal Favourites: Autumn


Does anyone else have random beauty products that they only use at certain times of year? I for one certainly do! Coming into the Autumn my skin is always a little drier so its important that I update my routine in order to keep it looking healthy. Also I often find that due to spending more time at home I'm partial to the odd pamper night ! 

The Nivea in Shower Body Moisturizer is just so perfect for this time of year as I'd much rather moisturize my body in a steamy hot shower than dance around my freezing cold room in my underwear. This one is cocoa scented, and super cheap too! I think it retails for around a fiver, but Superdrug and Boots always have it on special! Another body favourite is my Lush Wiccy Magic Muscles Massage Bar, which is perfect if you are having a girlie pamper night as you can use it to give each other massages (seriously hope there is no adolescent boys reading this). My mum and I often use this if one of us has been having a particularly stressful day. The scent is super relaxing but I must warn you it definitely lingers on the skin so if cinnamon isn't your thing I would opt for an alternative. 

Moving onto facial care I just mentioned that for some reason my skin seems to go from super oily to mega dehydrated in the autumn/winter. Although I never really used to rate the Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser I've recently tried it again and I'm hooked! I wasn't sure if this would successfully melt away the mountain of make up I put on my face but it definitely does. I've even ordered a full size of this i just love it so much! I love the Vitamin E range from The Body Shop so obviously I have a small stash of the Vitamin E Moisturizer from all the times I was trying to make up £20 for free delivery or there was a 3 for 2 offer. Guys lets face it if you regularly read my blog you know how much I love The Body Shop! Anyways this cream is super hydrating and like anything from TBS smells absolutely divine! 

Again you can't forget good lip care during the colder weather, and Nivea is definitely my favourite. This Hydro Care Lip Balm is actually the only thing in my collection that makes a huge difference to my chapped lips. Everything else either irritates them or only soothes the irritation, but this actually helps to hydrate and keep them hydrated too! It also has added SPF so its pretty much a good all year round product. Lastly, I must admit I've probably went through about seven bottles of Amor Amor since I was first introduced to it. Admittedly it isn't the greatest scent in the world, but its just so cheap and cheerful and because I used to get this for Christmas when I was in Secondary school a few squirts of this always make me look forward to December. 

What are your must have beauty products for autumn?

  1. That Lush massage bar looks crazy! But like it would be really nourishing. I always have to carry around a hand cream and lip balm in autumn, and I try and do more hair masks too. The cold weather just dries everything!

    I can't think of any products that I use depending on the time of a year. Just probably more lip balm.
