Christmas Treats For The Skin

At this time of the year my skin tends to suffer due to the high consumption of chocolate, but I always want to keep my complexion looks in tip-top condition for my Christmas and New Year's Eve makeup. Here are my top picks to calm, clear and boost my skin this festive period:

Recently, I've been using two new Pixi additions, the Rose Flash Balm* and Rose Caviar Essence*. The latter is great to use after your toner, but before your moisturiser to add another layer of hydration, something my skin is in dire need of this time of the year. I can't wait to see what this does to my skin over a longer period of time. The Rose Flash Balm for me is more suited to be used as a primer/moisturiser hybrid as it helps to keep my makeup in tact whilst not being drying on the skin like some silicone primers can do. 

If you're looking for a mask then there's a few I'd recommend depending on what skin concern you have. The Drunk Elephant Baby Facial is the perfect all rounder because it smoothes the skin, exfoliates, all whilst boosting radiance and banishing blemishes - I'm going to snap up the full size of this once they come to the UK! If you're prepping your skin for makeup then the Glossier Moon Mask is a great pick as it plumps and moisturises too without leaving any residue on the skin. 

My pores have got a lot better recently and I think it's down to the Fresh Deep Hydration Toner*. It's refreshing and adds a glow too! I often apply The Ordinary's Caffeine Solution* afterwards to wake up my peepers - Which is much needed when I need to wake myself up. 

What skincare have you been using lately?
