Dry Skin Saviours: Nuxe, Lush and Avene

As a teenager, I suffered with really terrible acne. If you've ever experienced it yourself, I know I don't need to tell you what a terrible time that was. It's going through the most awkward years of your life and having your confidence knocked even further down because of your skin. In other words, it sucked!

 So, having that as my skin history, I never thought that one day I'd be struggling with dry skin! Obviously, the weather in England plays a part as it is such a polar opposite to the humid heat I had to deal with in Brazil. But as much as I hate to admit it, I also have a sneaking suspicion that this is something that comes with age as well (I can't believe I'll be 26 in October! *insert appropriate Emoji here*). I struggled quite a bit last winter trying to figure this out.

My skin felt really sore and it was flaking on my cheeks and I got eyebrow dandruff which is pretty awful... haha But these are the product that have done wonders for my skin:

Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi Purpose Dry Oil
I've been using this as a face oil, even though it can't be used as a hair and body oil as well. I really enjoy the smell and it feels like a real treat every time I use it. It has a really lovely smell and I can't describe how supple and lovely it makes my skin feel! Plus, I do love the packaging, it's glass so feels super luxurious, plus the golden colour of the oil with the gold screw on lid make it really beautiful to look at!

Avene Hydrance Optimale Rich Hydrating Cream
Weirdly enough, sometimes I feel like just the oil sits a bit funny on my skin. I can't quite put my finger on it, but the texture of it on it's own doesn't always give me the comfort I'm looking for so I LOVE mixing it with this lovely, rich cream. Avene is a brand that caters to very sensitive skin, so there's no fragrance to this, which can cause irritation. I always put the duo on at night when before I go to bed and I wake up with baby soft skin the next morning.

Lush Skindrink Facial Moisturizer
I went into Lush to buy a leaving present for one of my friends who is moving back home and when I saw this, it instantly jumped out at me. It sounded like exactly what I'd been looking for since last Winter and it actually is! You probably wouldn't need the oil and the cream if you just buy this one (I'm just greedy and like variety!), as this is the most hydrating yet non greasy moisturizer I've ever come across. The only thing that lets it down, unfortunately, is the smell (really, Lush?!). It is very unpleasant and doesn't feel like a treat, as I have to hold my breath whenever I'm applying it (the smell goes away after a minute or so), but the way it feel and comforts my skin is unbeatable! 

So, do any of you struggle with dry skin? What else should I try?? x
