BLOGMAS | My Current Winter Skincare Routine


What is Blogmas? Blogmas or Vlogmas is when bloggers / vloggers upload a post or video everyday counting down to Christmas. I’m participating in Blogmas this year. However, instead of posting everyday until Christmas I will be posting for 12 days which will be spread out in 24 days counting up to Christmas. 


My skin is weird. I have oily / combination skin. However, come winter time my skin gets a bit dry to where it’s noticeable but not uncomfortable. I take advantage of this season to really hydrate my skin as doing it during the rest of the year makes my skin oilier.


My morning skincare routine
I have a pretty quick morning routine as all I do is “wash” my face using Bioderma Purifying Cleansing Micelle Solution. I then proceed to apply my moisturizer with SPF in it. I use the Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15. I love this moisturizer because it doesn’t leave my skin greasy compared to the other ones I have tried.

My night time skincare routine
I usually start of by washing my face. If I have make-up on, I take those off first then wash my face.

A favorite that I use all the time is Lancome’s Creme Radiance facial wash. You don’t need a lot of it and it leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh. Every 2 or 3 days, I will use my St. Ives Apricot Scrub to exfoliate my skin.

I have also started using a vitamin C serum to help event my skin tone. I purchased Maritime Naturals Professional Anti-Aging Serum a month ago and it’s been working great for me. It smells like oranges, but doesn’t irritate my skin. It has also helped in lightening my dark spots. I mean they’re still there but they’re a lot lighter now compared to when I started using this serum.

For moisturizer I am currently using my Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask. I got it from a mini set last year. This stuff is amazing. It’s thick so you don’t need a lot of it. However, it spreads nicely on my skin and doesn’t feel heavy. Plus it doesn’t irritate my skin at all.

My skin care routine for the past few weeks have been pretty simple as what I’m mostly concerned about is getting the dirt and grease off of my skin. I don’t have a lot of time spend on my self so being able to find a quick morning and night time routine is essential.

What about you? Do you ave a skin care routine specifically for this season?

Sephora VIB Sale Haul

The Sephora VIB sale is the one time in the year where I get to indulge in products more expensive than I would normally spend money on.

For the past weeks my skin has been acting funny. I was not too worried about the products I use to cleanse my face as my skin is not as sensitive. Looking back that might have been a bad idea.

With that, I used this past VIB Sale to try skin care products from Origins which I have heard so many good things about. I have started using some of the products I bought and so far no breakouts yet. 🙂
