As the cold weather sets in and the temperature drops so does your skin’s moisture levels. Jarring winds, cold temperatures, and dry air tend to sap your skin of its natural oils, leaving it parched, tight and uncomfortable. Bleh! Fight skin dryness with the help of products intended to boost hydration. Products such as these moisture-miracles from SIX Sensational skincare.  Most likely your summer skin care routine will just not cut it in winter. You’ll need to step it up and introduce richer products to replenish lost moisture.

I ‘mist’ say (haha) I like the change. The packaging is beautiful and striking – just what a beauty geek like myself looks for in a product. Their ‘Quick Makeup Fix’ (R250) is free from animal testing, synthetic colours, fragrances, parabens, PEGs, ethanolamines, sulphates, mineral oils and silicones.

5 Favourites Friday ♥


1. Hands up if you hate applying a thick, rich moisturiser to your skin during the warmer months. I love nothing more than wearing this gel moisturiser before applying my makeup. My skin feels light and intensely hydrated after using this fast-absorbing gel. What more do you need or want? The new Neutrogena Hydro Boost range is specially designed to boost water levels in the skin and strengthen its moisture barrier to leave skin smooth, supple and glowing. This range showcases a unique Hyaluronic Gel Matrix which creates an effective hydration reservoir with a progressive release system that continuously delivers hydration throughout the day. The ‘Water Gel’ (pictured above) is formulated for normal skins and the ‘Gel-Cream’ variant is better suited for very dry skins. R155 at Foschini.

Kiehl’s have created just that – a service which is personalised to each customer, with a mix of ingredients selected through consultations and diagnosis with a Kiehl’s consultant.
