Blogmas Day 14 | Winter Skin Care Routine

Winter Skin Care Routine | Elemis, ESPA, Korres
A few months ago I posted my everyday and evening summer skin care routine (here and here) The majority of the products are still the same however I've changed a couple of the products I use in both routines, mainly moisturisers, as my skin feels much dryer and tighter now that it's pretty chilly so here are a few products which are perfect to hydrate and replenish!
Winter Skin Care Routine | Elemis, ESPA, Korres
Elemis Maximum Moisture Day Cream
This does exactly what is says on the tube! I do have normal/combo skin however I've found that now the heating's on and I'm going from a lovely warm house out into the bitter cold my skin is taking a beating and feels much dryer, especially on my cheeks. Since using this every morning my skin feels soft and hydrated without leaving a oily residue as I've found in the past using a hydrating product when you have combination skin can make you look greasy, this isn't the case here at all as it's a really light texture. My best friend Lydia has uber sensitive skin and she gets along really well with this moisturiser, so if you're really sensitive too then this may be worth you trying!
ESPA Replenishing Face Oil
This is an amazing treatment for your mush and is a staple item for me throughout Winter as it deeply nourishes your skin leaving it feeling beautifully silky soft. I always apply this in the evening before my moisturiser just so it has enough time to fully absorb. I raved about this product here.

Korres Lip Butter
I love this lip balm! The formula is amazing, it feels so creamy when applying and afterwards your lips feel so soft and hydrated, this is the perfect treatment for chapped lips! This also adds a really subtle hint of colour so if you don't want to apply a lipstick after then you don't need to. One thing I'm not a fan of is the unhygienic packaging but other than that this receives top marks.
Elemis S.O.S Emergency Cream
This is the perfect moisturiser for a combination/blemished skin type. It's fab at reducing any redness and if I have a spot/break out I apply a blob of this in the evening before I go to sleep and in the morning its pretty much disappeared! This has a fairy thick texture however it soon absorbs. It's on the pricey side but for the results you get it's completely worth it!
Do you change up your skin care routine throughout Winter?
What are your holy grail skin care items?
