New Winter Skin Saviours Worth Your Money

As cold air, air-conditioning, free radicals, hot showers and wild winds play havoc on our skin, these are five heroes you can turn to to relieve stinging, flaking and scratchy skin.

Dermalogica Calm Water Gel, €50.80

Prone to redness? Discomfort? Sensitivity? Let me introduce your saviour, Dermalogica’s newest innovation, Calm Water Gel, €50.80; a soothing and weightless water gel with a defence barrier that protects your skin, locks in moisture, softens dryness, relieves sensitivity and goes on like a weightless liquid.


L’Occitane 70% Shea Melting Butter, €29

You may already know that shea butter is nourishing and healing for dry skin, but you probably haven’t seen it in this formula before. L’Occitane’s Shea Melting Butter, €29, replenishes lipids in the skin. When warmed between your hands, the butter transforms into a gentle oil that your skin will drink up. Apply to dry elbow, ankles and knees for instant results and relief.

Clinique Pep-Start Pout Restoring Night Mask, €18

Kiss chapped lips goodbye with Clinique’s new Pep-Start Pout Restoring Night Mask, €18. Use it as a nourishing overnight hydrator, or try applying it before your make-up for a soft lipstick base.

Lancôme Advanced Génefique Mask, €20 (one mask)

If you loved Lancôme’s Advanced Génefique serum or you’ve seen the hype and been curious to try it, you need to try Lancôme’s Advanced Génefique Hydrogel Melting Mask, €73.50 (4 masks). One single sheet mask contains the same amount of bifidus extracts (which improve the skin’s resistance to stress, leaves your skin hydrated and strengthens it’s barrier function) as a full bottle of Advanced Génefique. Use your mask before applying make-up for a big event for the perfect foundation base or wear the mask just before bed to wake up to radiant skin.
