Moisturize Your Skincare Routine! (#2014 Blogger Challenge)

Hey guys!
So for topic 2, we're supposed to write a post on our winter skincare, so instead of doing a skincare routine, I'm going to do a skincare swap! This is going to be on the products that I use now, that I've "swapped" since summer and fall. 

Swap 1: Shower Gel for Moisturizing Shower Gel
This is an easy swap because lots of shower gels already have shea butter or something moisturizing in it, but if yours doesn't, then swap it for one that does! I find that it helps to keep your skin smooth instead of sucking the moisture out of it! My favorites come from Bath and Body Works (my favorite scents are Winter Candy Apple, Vanilla Bean Noel, and Sweet Pea)

Swap 2: Body Lotion for Body Butter
I find that because I have dryer skin, body lotion just doesn't cut it sometimes! I like to swap it for a body butter because it is more moisturizing and it sinks in deeper! Lots of places sell body butters, but my favorite comes from the Body Shop! All of their scents are amazing, but my personal favorites are Papaya, Strawberry, and Almond. 

Swap 3: Liquid Hand Sanitizer for Antibacterial Mousse
Normal liquid hand sanitizer contains alcohol. Alcohol is great for killing germs, but if you use it too frequently, it'll dry out your hands! You can use a hand cream after using liquid hand sanitizer, or you can use a 2 in 1 product like this one! It comes out a mousse and is super moisturizing, but it's also antibacterial! You can get these at Bath and Body Works and my favorite scents are Iced Ginger Bread or Twisted Peppermint.

Swap 4: Liquid Face Soap for Cream Cleanser

Liquid face soap is very good at leaving my skin feeling clean, but it sometimes makes it feel tight and dried out afterwards! I swap it for a cleansing cream instead because its more moisturizing and leaves my skin clean without dry! This one comes from target and is my personal favorite!

So that's how I make my skin more moisturizing! I hope you liked this post and if you are going to use some of these tips, let me know in the comments! Also, enter my 100 Subscriber Giveaway here!


  1. I'm so jealous, we don't have bath and body works over here and I hear such nice comments on all their products. I'd love to try them out, especially the candles, I've recently become a candle freak!

  2. I love the candles! if you get a chance, you should get a few!
