My 3 Holy Grail Harsh Winter Personal Care, Skincare and Lip Care Products

By Farah - Monday, March 18, 2019

Hello everyone! 

I just wanted to share 3 products that help me to go through the harsh winter that we have here in Banff. The winter that I experience here in Banff is way different from the winter that I experienced back in Guelph. As such, I had to change some of my personal care, skincare, and lip care products because the ones that I used to use back in Guelph did not work for me anymore.


Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair Unscented Lotion, LANEIGE Water Sleeping Mask, LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask
I don't have my flat lay props with me, so this poor picture will do for now ã… ã… 

Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair Unscented Lotion

This lotion is a heaven-sent! I grabbed this lotion from the aisle of Shopper's Drug Mart for the first time two years ago and have been using the same lotion ever since. I was attracted to try this lotion because it says, "Transforms skin from very dry to healed in 5 days" on it's packaging. I was instantly sold because I was struggling with dry and cracked skin at that time. It was my first winter where the average temperature is about -20℃ ish and my skin was not ready and suffering.

Alhamdulillah, after trying the lotion for about a week, my skin was no longer dry and almost back to normal. I also did not feel the itchiness that's been bugging me on the previous week. Alhamdulillah. Another plus point is, this lotion is not greasy which makes me super happy because other Vaseline lotions that I have tried usually are quite greasy.



LANEIGE Water Sleeping Mask

Bought this sleeping mask at the Sephora after contemplating to buy it for a year. lol! I love the mask as a sleeping mask so much because my skin feels so supple and hydrated every time I wake up from my sleep after putting it on my face overnight. It really helps to save my skin especially when my housemates set the heater way too high. I usually woke up to super dry and peeled off skin before this.

I decided to try and use it as my day moisturizer after my usual day moisturizer failed to do its job when the temperature was lower than -20℃. Surprisingly, it works excellently as a day moisturizer as well. Alhamdulillah. My skin stays moisturized even when I'm outside for few hours and the temperature is around -30℃.

Wow, yakin gila letak awkward selfie! 😆
*Excuse my kejung smile for all my face muscles were kejung at that time*
I just want to show you (if you can actually see it) that my skin was not peeled off or cracked and my lips were not bleeding and cracked despite my face was constantly being slapped by cold and dry wind when I went tubing for 4 hours 😂

LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask

Like the LANEIGE Water Sleeping Mask, I bought the lip mask after contemplating to buy it after a year. lol! I love that feeling when I wake up to the moisturized and plump lips. Rasa macam Angelina Jolie sekejap. Hahaha :p Again, this lip sleeping mask saves my lips especially when my housemates set the heater way too high. I usually woke up to the cracked and bleeding lips before due to dry air.

I decided to try and use it as my daily lip balm because I thought it would excellently work as a daily lip balm as well. Alhamdulillah, thankfully, I was right. I only need to apply it once before I go outside and my lips will stay moisturized for the whole time, insya Allah. Tried and tested, I was outside for about 6 hours when the temperature was around -13℃ and my lips was still moisturized with only one application.

So yeah, alhamdulillah, these 3 products have helped me to go through the harsh winter here in Banff.  These products may help you as well whenever you go travelling in winter. Anyway, I probably will need to change the products again when the seasons change but that's another story :)

    1. Masa saya balik Malaysia last year, rasanya ada lotion ni dijual dekat Watsons or Guardian. Cuma bukan yang unscented la. Dekat Malaysia, yang masuk dulu yang lavender scented punya. Tapi, tak tahulah sekarang ada lagi ke tak sebab Vaseline dekat sini macam dah berhentikan je yang lavender scented punya.

    1. Macam saya pun ni gamble je. Dekat setahun fikir nak beli ke tak. Buat masa ni, rasa berbaloi sangat beli sebab berkesan. Tapi, itulah, saya pakai masa winter. Kalau pakai masa summer, belum tahu lagi sesuai ke tak dengan kulit muka saya. Nanti kita tengok dulu, okay? :)
