With winter coming on, I have been on the hunt for a nice, rich moisturiser to add to my regime - my lovely rosehip oil doesn't quite cut it on its own when the weather gets cold and dry and windy. I love the Lush Skin's Shangri-La cream, but after a few inconsistent batches last winter, I decided to look elsewhere
I used to use Ella Bache products a few years back. And as I was wandering through my local David Jones at the weekend, I saw the Ella Bache counter and had a total lightbulb moment - creme intex!
This stuff is seriously GOLD. It is one of the only moisturisers I've ever used which leaves my skin hyrdated and soothed, and not feeling dry after a few hours of applying. I love the texture of it, it sinks right into my skin, and it doesn't have a strong fragrance. I especially love that it only has 8 ingredients in total, and I actually know what they all are! (cod liver oil anyone?) I am already noticing the difference in my skin after only a few days of using this. So a slight addition to my 5 second skincare routine, and a welcome one
I should also add, in the interests of blogging integrity - when V read my post about 5 second skincare he fell about laughing. "You take hours to get ready for bed at night!" After I had tickled him until he begged for mercy, I had him repeat after me - the actual skincare routine is very simple, but the whole winding-down, relaxation process of an evening is veeeeery important to me and takes a bit longer ;)
Do you change up your skincare routine as the weather and seasons change?
