Winter Skin Care with Redwin

IMG_0701_2

Does your skin care routine change during Winter? My skin has been incredibly dry lately, especially on my hands. All of the extra hand washing, heater use, dry air and a little bit of stress thrown in means that my hands have been dry to the point of cracking. I had been trying to treat them to extra thick cream at night, but it just was not cutting it. A press release about Redwin Perfect Naturals couldn’t have landed in my inbox at a better time. I have been trying (and loving) the products, and you’re going to get the chance too as well, as I am giving some products away.

There are two really great things about this product line. The first is that the ingredients are all natural – the products are vegan, cruelty free, Australian made and free from a long list of nasties. The second fantastic thing is that they are incredibly budget friendly.

The Redwin Perfect Naturals range are made from a variety of oils, including coconut, goji berry, acai berry, pomegranate, chia seed and apricot kernel. The body lotions come in a few different varieties. I have tried the options for normal and very dry skin. The cream is nice and thick, with a little going a long way. They have a subtle scent and are great to apply before bed.

I love the products with coconut oil as a main ingredient. They are made for all skin types, and are perfect to nourish cold Winter skin. The body butter is lovely and thick, and smells delicious. I have been using it after shaving my legs, with it keeping the skin soft and reducing shaving rashes. The coconut balm has found it’s perfect home in my handbag. I think this will be like the 2015 version of the all purpose, all healing paw paw ointment. While it is perfect to protect lips from the weather, the good thing is that I can also use it on my hands if they’re dry through the day instead of  a standard hand cream. My favourite product by far is the coconut oil. I was a bit hesitant to use this at first, as I was worried it would leave my hands and clothes greasy. Using a small pump of oil, I was able to moisturise my hands and not leave traces on anything. My hands were actually still soft and non-greasy for several hours afterwards. The oil is fantastic at night time, and if you have very dry skin you could pop some gloves over the top. Redwin suggests using it on those tricky but dry places like elbows, knees and feet.

  1. I’m not sure what’s happened to my skin but I turned 40 this year and it’s not quite what it use to be. I’ve been drinking 2 litres of water every day and slathering moisturiser over my body to try and de-scale it! My hands are constantly dry and itchy and I’ve road tested so many hand creams now I could open a factory outlet for seconds! So my skin regime has definitely changed this year, ie I now have one!

  2. I have a great winter skin care routine! He hee! Its called just putting clothes on and ignoring the fact my skin looks like a scaly lizard. I wish I was joking but I’m kind of not. I have got back into running and there have been cold dry westerly winds here lately and my skin it is becoming painfully dry. I have tried a body oil and was too surprised at the results. I also need to drink more water especially with the extra exercise but its much harder in winter isn’t it?

  3. The only thing I’m using regularly this winter is a twice weekly scrub and a good thick face moisturiser. I should probably start using a body moisturiser too as my arms and legs are bit gross!

  4. My winter skin care routine is all about clear skin and moisturising. Daily cleanser, weekly exfoliating, hydration (soda water!) and rugging up so I don’t need the heater as much(which dries my skin terribly!)

  5. I am the same Sarah my hands are so dry and cracked… The only thing I have been using is a goats milk face cream and some body lotion after I shave but my legs are so dry and scaly and I’m in desperate need of a good quick moisturiser so thank you for recommending il definitely have to give them a try. Are they available from chemists?

  6. My winter skin care routine is non existent! I’m such a busy mum that I have been neglecting myself lately. I pulled up my pants today to have a look at my legs and they are so dry! Yuck!

  7. My skin care regime has changed dramatically in the past 9 months since giving birth to my first baby in September of 2014. Going from using cleansers, exfoliates, serums, eye creams and moisturisers to a much more time effective method of cleansing and moisturising has been a huge time and money saver!! Am always looking for products now that are effective and budget friendly, thanks Sarah these look great and will give them a try.

  8. My Winter routine consists of trying to keep my skin as hydrated as possible through drinking plenty of water and moisturising. The battle is trying to find a moisturiser that doesn’t feel greasy and cause breakouts, bonus points if it helps my daughter’s eczema as well!

  9. My winter skin care routine is nearly non existent !! I am trying to spend some more time on myself lately and starting with a good quality moisturizer is my number one priority… I love coconut oil so will check these out!

  10. At 56 years of age,and with dry skin, I have leaned the importance of moisturising all year round. My biggest hint is this, keep your moisturiser in sight, it becomes a habit, a good one ! These products sound so yummy, anything with coconut makes me want to rush out and buy them !
