Chilly Skin Essentials

I hoard sheet masks like a pack rat in winter! My aging skin pleads for extra moisture when the chilly wind bites the apples of my cheeks. So, obligingly I have been using these great offerings from FaceQ (of My Beauty Diary fame).



I have to say that I LOVE MBD masks but having ventured into FaceQ territory, I find that they reach the same bar as the MBDs but are are much thinner and hold to the face much better. I love the nice clean slight scent and the low price tag too.


My favorites are the Ocean & Aloe Collagen with the Grape & Green Tea variety coming in a close second place.



Another mask that I am really enjoying lately is the My Scheming Beauty Eye Masks.



They are moisture laden clear jelly patches that sit under the eye and though they do nothing for wrinkles, they do moisturise and they are so relaxing and soothing to use.


I grabbed these items on Sasa.

What are your favourite additions to your skincare arsenal this winter?

  1. Ohh, I want to try the FaceQ masks! I probably have enough MBD masks to last me through the winter now - I'm just finishing up my 'older' stash of premium masks, and then I still have boxes to go... I tend to stock up when the scents I like are in stock on Sasa. Haha.

    My skin's been super dry on and off this year so right now (other than masks) my essentials are the Hada Labo lotion and NARS Aqua Gel Hydrator (I get CPs from the US for this though as it's so $$ here)!

  2. You know what, I never ever had a problem with dry skin in the winter until this year. I suppose that is my own fault really because until this year I never found a summer face cream that kept my skin looking matte. Now I've found that, I realise that it maybe wasn't moisturising me as much as I thought it would, it just stopped the grease.

    So, I've been investigating facial oils and have a few that I need to use yet (had to wait to get over some breakouts) but I'm going to start using them tonight/tomorrow and see what happens.

  6. I really want to try the FaceQ masks! I feel that they are much more reasonable in price (less hyped prolly xD). I have yet to even try MBD masks *sigh* I feel so deprived...

  8. I adore sheet masks for the winter! I don't find myself reaching for them much in the summer, but come winter I use them several times a week. I'm also a fan of a thicker eye cream come winter.

  13. faceq masks are on my shopping list once I work through more of the MBD and Silk Whitia masks still in my stash...I didn't use them as much over the summer but I'm reaching for them more to keep my skin from drying out! This is about the time of the year that I work in a heavier night cream as well, and BB cream since my skin isn't as oily
