YOU Beauty Box: Advent Calendar Skincare Saviours

Winter skincare saviours to see you through December

Who couldn’t do with a bit of a helping hand with their skincare routine right now? If you’ve flicked the central heating on, you will almost certainly be feeling the wrath on your complexion and you only need to step outside the front door to note the cooling chafe of the autumnal breeze.


Switching back and forth from heated to cold air, leaves skin dry and irritated so adjusting your skincare regime for autumn and winter is essential. Many people notice that their skin type changes with the season too – though problems start when you don’t notice the changes and continue to use the same skincare products. Lookout for the early signs, as oily skin is prone to becoming ‘normal’ and normal may become dry – make sure you alter your skincare products to keep up.

Thankfully the YOU Beauty Advent Calendar 2017 is packed with a gorgeous range of skin-loving products to see you and your skin through. If you want to whip your skin into shape but don’t know where to start, this is the answer…

REN Skincare Keep Young & Beautiful Instant Firming Beauty Shot


One of the very rare skincare products to deliver instant results; this gel-like serum firms, lifts and plumps in a flash and leaves skin looking dramatically smoother, tighter and more youthful with continued use. You’ll actually feel this product working from the moment you apply it but it also provides optimal hydration levels, both short and long term. Skin is softened and strengthened and looks notably better for it.

Sukin Hydrating Mist Toner Spray


We can’t get enough of Sukin at the moment. Fairly new on our radar, Sukin are Australia’s number one natural skincare brand and they do expert skincare to suit all skincare types. This powerful toning mist works by soothing, purifying and toning tired skin – making it ideal for use during Christmas party season when your skin is all over the place and craving a dose of TLC. The 50ml included in the YOU Beauty Advent Calendar is more than enough to show you what this brand has to offer – and get you hooked.

MONUSKIN Professional Skincare Illuminating Primer SPF15


Ensuring a smooth complexion is no easy feat at this time of year – just where do those flaky patches even come from? Make sure you are hot on your twice daily skincare regime and then seal the deal with this amazing multi-purpose primer. Not only does it reduce the appearance of imperfections and blemishes, it also smooths and nourishes for a flawless base. Suitable for all skin types – add a dab to your foundation for an extra glow or use to highlight brow bone and cheeks.


The Organic Pharmacy Lip & Eye Cream


We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again, who doesn’t love a dual-purpose beauty and skincare product? This superb, nourishing cream has been designed to deliver maximum hydration and love to lips and eyes. Not only will it help to reduce puffiness and dark circles on the delicate skin around the eyes, it also thoroughly moisturises dry lips to reduce the appearance of fine lines.


SportFX Make-Up Setting Mist

No budge make-up seems the stuff of dreams in winter but this is your best chance of making it a reality. This uplifting mist works by providing a feeling of instant freshness, continuous hydration and comfort. In doing this, it controls oil production, deflects surface shine and keeps skin looking and feeling beautifully fresh. Whilst skin is balanced and enhanced with vitamins and anti-inflammatory ingredients, make-up is simultaneously encouraged to stay put.


Dr Organic Snail Gel Eye Serum

Dr Organic spoils us for powerful natural ingredients and this Snail Gel Eye Serum is a fantastic example. Combining a number of beneficial organic extracts with Helix Aspersa Muller secretion; Dr Organic’s proprietary blend of bioactive ingredients are combined to create an anti-aging serum that can help hydrate, smooth and protect the skin, whilst assisting in the dramatic improvement of the appearance of wrinkles.


Gatineau Gentle Silk Cleanser

Switching your summer-long cleanser to something richer and thicker is a must as we approach winter and this luxurious milky cleanser, enriched with delicate silk and cotton extracts, gently dissolves make-up and removes impurities – all whilst conditioning the skin. The secret to this cleanser sits in the inclusion of sweet almond oil; it nourishes and softens the skin as it cleanses, meaning you’re not aggravating your complexion whilst you clean it. Suitable for even the most sensitive skin types.


The YOU Beauty Advent Calendar 2017 also includes two of our longstanding favourite skincare products – Rodial Dragon’s Blood Eye Mask and bareMinerals® SKINLONGEVITY™ Vital Power Infusion, as featured in last week’s hero brands piece – click here if you missed it.
