The effects of Winter weather can take a toll on your skin. Having the indoor heater on blast combined with cold winds outdoors leaves skin without moisture, which is why you experience rough, dry patches on your face. Now is the time to rescue your skin and prep it for the fresh new season. The road to your best looking complexion ever involves deep cleansers and intense hydration masks, all the heavy hitters. Discover my current skincare essentials, its benefits and where you can get them at an average of 10-40% off retail pricing. Moisturize, hydrate and bring back that everyday radiance.

An Award-Winning Cleanser

When you read about a product holding the title as “the best cleanser in the world” by Vogue UK, you don’t take that info lightly, but jump at the chance to try it out because it’s award winning. The Eve Lom Cleanser isn’t something you just throw on and wash off. It’s a nice and relaxing spa session you can treat yourself to at home. I love the overall experience and how it revitalizes my senses. Designed not only to deep clean and exfoliate, it also softens, brightens and tones. The steps include massaging the product into your skin to melt away all dirt and makeup, then using a warm muslin cloth (which it comes with) to steam your face. Your pores open up and the world class formula works it magic to reveal super soft and radiant skin.

It’s quite the investment and you need to make more time for it, but if you think about how much a regular spa facial costs and the glowing results you achieve from that, this cleanser comes pretty close. It’s more than sensible. Very much worth the time and money, if you ask me.

Exfoliating with Muslin Cloths

An alternative to cleansing brushes and washcloths, Eve Lom Muslin Cloths are a gentle and convenient way to remove dead skin cells and dirt while you cleanse. Because my skin gets irritated easily, muslin clothes aren’t as abrasive and tend to work better. The Eve Lom Cleanser I mentioned above comes with a complimentary one, but if you’re looking to have a few handy extras, Eve Lom carries them in packs of three as well. They are great in quality and lasts for a long time. I’m looking forward to using them in-flight and during my travels.

An Essential Face Mask

In terms of results, no sheet mask hydrates, moisturizes and gives me a dewy glow faster than SK-II’s Facial Treatment Mask. It makes me feel beautiful inside and out. My skin is literally glowing after 10 minutes. Each time I’ve applied makeup on after using this, I skip the highlighter because my complexion looks so smooth and naturally lit from within. The mask is packed with more than enough essence to go around. With the good amount left over in the package, I either slather it all over my neck, hands and chest or save it with the mask for another day and use it a second time. At $10 each, you don’t want one drop of it to go to waste.

An Age-Defying Eye Cream

My pain points around the eyes have been dark circles, puffiness and wrinkles. The Clé de Peau Intensive Eye Contour Cream when used daily targets all my concerns and has overall improved the texture of my skin under and around the eyes. I particularly love that the cream comes with a platinum eye massaging tool in a user-friendly shape that really gets to all the vital eye areas. The tool really adds to the effectiveness of the cream.
