My Dehydrated Winter Skin Saviours

During winter, my skin is terribly dry and dehydrated, so I've been testing out lots of different products which are designed to rehydrate and add moisture back into my skin.

Here are my top recommended skin care products for dealing with dehydrated, winter skin that I have tried and tested:

Bobbi Brown Hydrating Face Tonic | House of Fraser | £20
This is fantastic for removing any cleanser residue and really helps to add moisture to my dry and dehydrated skin. It also smells amazing, although if you're not a huge fan of lavender, it's probably not for you.

Lacura Aqua Complete Multi Intensive Serum | Aldi | £3.49
This is not overly hydrating, but adds an additional layer with my moisturiser and is an absolute bargain. It's full of Hyaluronic Acid which is super hydrating.

Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief | Boots | £32
This instantly sinks into my dehydrated skin and makes it look and feel plump and revived. I usually use this in the morning. I love that this doesn't irritate my acne prone skin either.

Clinique All About Eyes Rich | Boots | £25 for 15ml
I switch between the rich and original one depending on how dehydrated my skin is. This is more of a cream, whereas the original is a gel-like formula. 

Hydraluron | Boots |  £16.66 (currently on offer)
I bought this because of the rave reviews and I'm currently undergoing a four week review which will be posted up at the end of February.

Clinique City Block Sheer 25 SPF| Boots | £17
I always try and wear SPF, even in the winter as I believe that sun damage is a major factor in ageing. This is a fantastic base for foundation and also acts as a primer. I really feel my foundation lasts longer with this on.

Botanics 100% Organic Facial Oil | Boots
I have talked about this before and it's a great facial oil from Boots. Although I think they may have discontinued it.

Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Primer | Boots | £28
I use this on special occasions when my skin is lacking moisture because it is expensive for 30ml of product. It feels extremely cooling when you first apply it and makeup sits nicely on top. 

Origins Drink Up 10 Minute Mask | Boots | £22
I use this before a night out of a special occasion to really give my skin a major moisture boost.

Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask | Boots | £22
Using this once a week, it really plumps up my skin and makes it look and feel more hydrated. For £22 it isn't cheap, but a little bit goes a long way. It also smells amazing!

Origins Make A Difference Plus + Rejuvenating Moisturiser | Boots | £34
If you can afford to splash out on a moisturiser to boost the hydration in your dry skin, this will become your best friend. It's extremely rich and hydrating, but it doesn't break me out or make my skin overly oily/greasy. It even works under makeup, but I tend to leave this one for the evening.

Please let me know if you would like a full review of any of the products. What products are you currently using to help with dry skin? Do you have any recommendations that I should try for dehydrated skin?
