The Face and Body Moisturiser Duo

I've always had a bit of a love hate relationship with moisturisers and have never quite understood the hype. But I now am...

There is almost always a moisturiser of some sort on my dressing table but I only use it if my skin is overly dry and even then, I tend to use my Origins Drink Me Up Mask instead of a moisturiser. But I've recently been using the Amie Morning Light Hydrating Daily Moisturiser which I'd never heard of before until it landed in my post box. Amie is a natural skincare brand designed for sensitive skin so perfect for me! This has been incorporated into my skincare routine for the past couple of weeks, morning and evening and my skin feels so much softer. It's an incredibly light consistency and sits really well under makeup. Definitely would recommend! You can also pick it up from The Hut.

Likewise with face moisturisers, I rarely bother with a body version unless I'm suffering from day two itchy leg syndrome and even then, it's whichever moisturiser I can reach first (this typically ranges from hotel freebies to samples). But the Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion is so lovely. It's a rich formula that sinks into the skin instantly and doesn't leave it sticky or oily. The air has been ridiculously dry (Yes, I cringed writing that) and it's definitely taken a toll on my skin so I've been reaching for this a lot lately. Plus, it has a handy pump which makes it so much easier for someone who is particularly lazy with these sort of things.

Are you on the moisturising bandwagon? What are your favourite options?

  3. I love moisturising, make up sits so much better when my skin looks and feels good. I've always applied day and night creams, Origins is one of my favourites, the drink up mask is great for overnight, but I like the Nightamins, and the Ginzing day cream. when it comes to the body, I'm pretty lazy, Im trying to moisturise more, with the help of the Lush bars, but I get so much lazier with my routine in winter. xx

  4. I am a huge fan of Amie products, they are just so lovely x

  5. I'm all about moisturizing everything :) For body I'm loving Body Shop body butters. They are the best. I'm still looking for a face cream, which I would love.

  9. I love Aveeno and Amie :D

    I have to admit that I very rarely use any other body lotions than my Nivea In-Shower Moisturiser nowadays though. It just makes life so much easier when you're a mum trying to get ready as quickly as possible!!
