• 5 Favourite Winter Products | The Secret Board

    A few weeks ago I received an email from Mariska, who had recently launched her own beauty blog called The Secret Board. After visiting her blog I just knew I had to feature her on my blog and introduce her to all of you. I asked Mariska to share her top 5 winter products.

    I love winter; not only because I like my winter wardrobe so much better, but it is also time to light the fireplace, take out the fluffy blankets, have some good red wine and slow-cooked meals. The only downside to winter is my skin becoming very dry and sensitive, as well as chapped hands and lips are a sad given. Below is a list of my five winter must-haves to ease up where winter takes its toll:

    1.      Nivea Supreme Touch Cream Shower Oil (R25)

    This shower oil is my go-to body wash this winter. I find it to be nourishing and deeply moisturizing to the skin. I absolutely adore the fresh, clean smell and even though fragranced products are normally a no-no for me, I do not have any sensitivity to this particular body wash.

    2.      Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Concentrated Cream (From R10)

    Palmer’s Cocoa Butter range is the only product I use in terms of body and hand lotions. It is absorbed quickly without any sticky residue and I love the delicious chocolate smell. I always have this little guy in my handbag for my super dry hands.

    3.      The Bodyshop Vitamin E Intense Moisture Cream (R140)

    The Vitamin E Intense Moisture Cream is a rich, soothing facial cream that hydrates like a superstar. It is absorbed quickly by the skin and the moisturized feeling lasts all day. Even though I have combination skin, I do not find that it aggravate my oily T-zone.

    4.      Clarins Beauty Flash Balm (R435)

    Beauty Flash Balm is a must-have for winter to boost a bit of radiance; fight signs of fatigue and brightens the skin. It really gives you a youthful glow. I would however take caution if you have oily skin; it is more suitable for dry to normal skin.

    5.      Maybelline Dr Rescue Baby Lips (R32)

    Dr Rescue Baby Lips is a great hydrating lip balm with a slight hint of color and sheen. I do not leave the house without this in my bag.
