Fall/Winter Skin Care Haul


Since fall is here now and winter is around the corner I thought it would be a good idea to go and grab some new skin care, especially since I am close to using up a lot the products in my current skin care routine. Shoppers Drug Mart was having a sale on Avene products so I figured this would be a good time to go and grab a few items.

Since I am not getting any younger I though now would be a good time to start using eye cream. I looked up some reviews on the Avene soothing eye cream and it seems like a lightweight eye cream which was exactly what I am looking for.


The next thing I got is also from the Extremely rich compensating cream. I have quiet a few dry patches on my skin at the moment so I wanted to find a moisturizer  I could use at night. I tried a bit on my hand and it has butter like consistency so its pretty thick. It also comes with a spatula which is good to have for sanitary reasons.





I also decided to get a cleanser I could use during the morning, I was previously using Cetaphil but it does contain parabens so I thought I would try and find something similar without parabens. So I got the Gentle milk cleanser and I'm hoping it will work well with my skin. Now I just need to find a night time cleanser! If you have any suggestions please leave em below!

That last thing I got is a non-Avene product and it is the Etival Urgen-C Hydrating Surge Mask, I wanted to try the Orgins Drink Up mask but then I saw this on sale and thought why not give it a go. Fingers crossed it works!

Well that pretty much sums up everything I purchased. I do plan on doing reviews on most of the products but if there is a particular product you want more information on feel free to leave a comment below!

Hope everyone has a great week up ahead of them, and Happy Thanksgiving once again to all of my Canadian followers.

  15. Great purchases! Here's a little tip for applying moisturizer: give your skin a spritz of thermal water and then put the cream on, it will glide on easier and will lock in more moisture than just the moisturizer alone. It's my favourite beauty trick! xx
