Soul Fishing Skincare Routine + A Christmas Giveaway! (CLOSED)

I sometimes really envy people with mixed skin. At least you guys have a layer of lipids (fats on the skin). I seriously doubt that I have one, since my skin is really sensitive and feels constantly tight. In the summer, it turns red before you can say ‘’lobster’’ and just as the winter comes, I think: ‘’Oh well, at least the nasty UV rays won’t get to me with all this cloudy and rainy weather, so my skin is going to be fine.’’ Wrong. There’s central heating and then again, there’s the cooooold. If I don’t properly moisturize with a specific face cream that really deeply moisturizes and nourishes, my skin gets flaky and blotchyL Also, I can’t use any heavily scented bath soaps, shower gels or body lotions, they are way too aggressive on my skin. So, here’s my new and updated list from the old one mentioned here.

Lips balms:I am currently using threeJ Sorry, but dry lips usually come in package with the dry skin. During the coldest months, Carmex Lip Balm has proven to be the most effective. Seriously, if you have chapped lips, use this lip balm and all your lip problems are going to disappear. Another great lip balm is Lanolips lip balm with SPF 15 in ‘’Rhubarb.’’ It’s very rich, glossy and non-sticky, my favorite combination. Also, I love the fact that it’s tinted and that it contains all natural lanolin, which is a natural fat found in sheep’s wool. Last but not least, I use Maybelline’s Baby Lips lip balm. It definitely hydrates the lips, but that’s it. I does not give you that extra protection that you need in the cold and windy winter weather, so right now, I am mostly switching between Lanolips and Carmex.

Foot Cream:I have been using the Gehwol Medical foot cream for three years now and I have never wanted no experiment with any new foot creams ever since. I am honestly very very pleased with it. You can purchase it any Sanolabor medical supply stores.

L’Oreal Micellar Gel: I actually purchased this in Dublin as you can’t get it in Slovenia and I have to say it’s pretty solid. I use it to remove my eye makeup and it has proven to be efficient. It doesn’t dry out my skin and it doesn’t feel sticky or heavy, so it was definitely a good purchase.

Nivea Micellar Water: I have been using these micellar waters for the last 6 months, L’Oreal as well as Nivea, and I can’t really say that I feel any difference. I haven’t noticed any changes, such as smaller pores as the product promises. For me, it’s just an ordinary skin tonic. Nothing special. What’s your experience with the micellar water?

Le Petit Marseillais Body Lotion: It smells divine, hydrates my skin to perfection with Shea butter, almond extracts and Argan Oil. Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a winner!

Soraya Face and Hand Creams: I switch between the Soraya day cream with collagen and ceramides and the Soraya vita therapy E+F vitamin night cream, a combination which has proven to be very effective, a small miracle, since my skin does not always react well to sudden changes. Also, I hate it when it says ‘’nourishing’’ or ‘’moisturizing’’ on the package and it turns out that the product does not even remotely contain enough lipids for really dry skin. What does that mean in practice? The product practically evaporates from my face in matter of a few hours.

That’s why I have been using the Soraya products for over a year now. My skin got back that healthy glow of the nourished skin and I love the fact that I don’t have to reapply the cream at all, even when it’s windy or cold or when there’s central heating on. Also, I have started using the Soraya Honey and Milk hand cream that smells divine, but without that ‘’in your face’’ aggressive smell that some hand creams have. It’s really discreet and lovely and it leaves my hands well moisturized without any stickiness. It’s a win!

That’s why I have decided to host a Christmas giveaway!  I have been so pleased with the quality of the Soraya products that I want to share it with you guys! You are so amazing and I would like to thank you with this giveaway!
