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.
Winter Skin Care tips
