Merry Christmas! How is your Christmas coming along? I’m overdosing on hot chocolate and pancakes! Although I think I’m going to buy some plum cake tomorrow when we are out watching Dangal. In terms of skin care, my skin care routine has changed a lot keeping in mind the nip in the air. Although its not crazy cold yet but my oily skin has turned to combination normal which is such a relief! I love winters for this reason alone. Himalaya recently sent over some of their new winter skin care launches and I’m going to unbox and show you the products in this himalaya winter bundle. Although its not exactly an unboxing because I couldn’t wait to try out the products as soon as I got them. Let’s start with my favourites! I got three new body lotions to try:
Himalaya Cocoa Butter Intensive Body Lotion, Soothing Body Lotion and Nourishing Body Lotion:
The body lotions come in 3 variants for different skin care needs. The himalaya soothing body lotion is meant for people with dry sensitive skin as its light weight and non greasy. The fragrance is quite light and pleasant. The next is Himalaya Nourishing Body Lotion which is meant for people with oily combination skin. Now if you live in a place where it doesn’t get crazy chilly but you still need moisturization then go for this one as its very light weight and gets absorbed in a jiffy. I can see myself reaching for this one in summers. The last one is Himalaya Cocoa Butter Intensive Lotion for people with very dry skin. Well this one is my favourite! Not only because its very moisturizing and takes care of dry patches but also because it smells soooo good! It smells deliciously of cocoa and I like to apply it just before going to bed.
Himalaya Nourishing Skin Cream and Winter Defense Moisturizing Cream:
Coming to the facial creams, we have quite a lot of options here depending on your needs and budget. I will start with Himalaya Nourishing Skin Cream which is a light weight face moisturiser meant for people with people combination skin to help nourish it without being greasy. If you have oily skin then you should try this one. The next one is Himalaya Winter Defense Moisturizing Cream which is meant for dry skin to help with with rough dry patches in the winter months. I also like to use it on my elbows and knees because they tend to get dry very fast.
Himalaya Clear Complexion Whitening Day Cream and Revitalizing Night Cream:
Now if you would like to spend a little more on your skin care then you have got two more options. The first one is Himalaya Clear Complexion Whitening Day Cream. It comes with spf to protect you from sun rays while still moisturizing your skin. If you often skip your sunscreen then try this one as you would have some sun protection always. Its light weight and smells nice. Did I mention it has no parabens? Coming to the night routine, you can try Himalaya Revitalizing Night Cream as its quite hydrating and gives you a soft glow when you wake up the next morning. Your skin repairs itself at night while you sleep so its essential you use a good night cream. I like the cute glass tubs of both these creams, really good for gifting.
Himalaya Natural Soft Vanilla Lip Care and Strawberry Shine Lip Care:
I use Himalaya Natural Soft Vinalla Lip Care at night because I love the mild smell of vanilla it has and it helps repair your lips at night. And in the morning I like to use Himalaya Strawberry Shine Lip Care as its tinted so I can often skip my lipstick while running errands and plus it smells of strawberries! Totally addicted to the fresh fragrance.
While unboxing this lot I couldn’t help but think how good a secret santa gift it would make. So if you are one of those last minute shoppers then you can consider gifting your family and friends some Himalaya goodies.
