Now that we are entering the colder months, torrential rain, thunder & lightening, i’m talking to you, I decided to switch up my bedside table essentials to products more suitable. I love nothing more than getting to bed, and slathering myself in skincare goodness. My products are all hand and lip related as these are my problem areas when it comes to Autumn/Winter.
The Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub | link | has been a favourite of mine some time. It isn’t to harsh on my lips, but still manages to leave them feeling amazingly smooth. It also helps that it tastes amazing 😉 I then give my lips a good coating of the Bioderma Atoderm Lip Moisturising Stick | link | that I picked up on a whim whilst in Paris, I think it was about 2 euros, seriously cheap for such an amazing product. It leaves my lips feeling moisturised and soft. These two products paired together really help at this time of year as my lips tend to get slightly sore and chapped.
Another reason i’m not a fan of the cold, is the effect it can have on my hands. It leaves them feeling really dry and dull (?) is it possible for my hands to look dull, it’s the only word I can use to describe it. I apply a small amount of the Burt’s Bees Almond & Milk Hand Cream | link | to the backs of my hands and rub it in, concentrating on my knuckles and in between my fingers. Full review can be found here.
Although throughout the year the skin around my nails tends to rip and I get small cuts, that are bloody painful, it definitely gets worse during the winter. The Nailtiques Cuticle & Skin Gel* | link | has definitely helped with this, which is why it has become a staple in my Bedside Beauty routine. I apply a small amount to each finger, blending in to the skin right around my nail. It leaves a clear coating, but doesn’t leave behind any residue.
These products definitely help bedtime feel that little bit more luxurious 🙂
I’d love to hear what you guys have on your bedside tables!
