Mini Review: New Winter Skincare Favourites

I added a couple of new editions to my skin care routine this week: the Korres Pomegranate Cleansing Scrub and Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Cucumber and Green Tea.  Both these products are little gems, and I can’t wait to tell you all about them!

Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Cucumber and Green Tea

With the winter months rolling in, I wanted to prep my skin with more than just a serum so I opted for this spray which I’ve been seeing all over the gram of late. It’s a cult favourite which I just had to try.

I love the colour of this spray and the packaging, it’s a super cool green hue which stands out on my dressing table – I can never loose this thing!

The formula itself is incredibly refreshing and soaks right into your skin leaving it plump and hydrated. I usually apply a light spritz before I apply my foundation with a beauty blender and it works its magic.

This product is also great value for money. At $9 for small bottle, this green juice for your skin will last you at least a couple of months. If you’re looking for an inexpensive and effective way to look after your skin during the colder months, this product is for you.

Korres Pomegranate Cleansing Scrub

What can I say? I love this scrub, after all it’s by Korres and I’ve raved about their products before.  This scrub smells great and the little beads are granular enough to get a decent amount of exfoliation.

The tube I bought was tiny, but a little goes a long way.  Personally I wouldn’t use this product more than once a week, because it’s a heavy duty exfoliator.  The texture is very grainy, and resembles fine beads of sand so if you’ve got sensitive skin I’d steer away from this one and maybe use something a little less intense.

It’s most effective when paired with a light cleanser and sweep of moisturiser and is the perfect skin reset after a long week.  My skin feels clean and supple especially when layered with Korres Pomegranate Moisturiser.  Also, this formula is best suited to oily combination skin so is perfect for managing those times when your skin needs a little more attention.

For now, I’ll be sticking to purchasing the smaller tubes only because I’m quite selective about when I use this product.  For the right skin type, it’s a great addition to mix up your skin care routine.

Have you added any new skincare products to your regime lately?
