It’s definitely here. The depth of winter has arrived with a (very chilling) blast. And according to so many of you who’ve been getting in touch with us recently, the biggest question on your mind is how to deal with what happens to your skin during the cold winter months – hands so dry they hurt, cracked skin on your legs and flaky skin everywhere else.
As a beauty lover, I’m always on the lookout for new, fab buys – especially those that fit our SWIISH ‘luxe for less’ ethos. Add to that the time factor – most mornings I’m juggling a dozen things trying to get Annabelle ready and out the door, so I don’t have the luxury of spending hours in the shower (much as I wish I could)… so I need products that are quick to use and super effective.
I’ve been using Original Source Skin Quench recently and this little guy seriously does it all – cleanses and moisturises, leaving my skin feeling nourished – oh and it smells amazing too. We all know how good oils are for hydration and moisture, and the Skin Quench has these tiny micro-beads that literally burst on your skin releasing all-natural (we love that) oils like Coconut, Jojoba or Moringa. What’s Moringa, you ask? It’s an oil that comes from the Moringa Oleifera tree, and is known for its antiageing properties. It’s filled with antioxidants, fights skin fatigue and is a natural purifier of skin – resulting in a gorgeous glow. Love.
On days when I need to give my skin a real wake up, I use the Daily Scrub (the Blood Orange is my fave!). You can feel it really deep cleansing your skin, leaving it smooth. I apply my moisturiser right after I shower, and it melts right in, returning my skin to softness.
Aside from Original Source using 100% natural oils, the products also contain 100% natural fragrance and they’re 100% Vegan approved. Oh – and did we mention that they’re an absolute steal at $4.99? Yep. Big luxe for less tick from us. You can pick up Original Source from Woollies, Coles, Big W and Chemist Warehouse.
