Autumn Hair, Skin and Bodycare Picks You'll Want to Know About...

*This post is brought to you in collaboration with Vaseline.

The Autumn and Winter seasons seem to be plagued by extra things to do - there's more clothing on our backs, it's more of an effort to go anywhere outside our homes and there's definitely more of a focus needed on body care.

That time of the year has finally arrived when we've got to pay a little more attention to the skin and hair care regime.

I would love to be one of those people that had skin that was well equipped to cope with the change in seasons, but sadly I am not. I have fair skin that dehydrates rapidly and needs lots of attention. It can be expensive to maintain and I am always hunting for good skin and hair care solutions that are both purse friendly and effective.

I really enjoy writing skin care posts and they've proven themselves quite popular here. Depending on where you are in the world, you might find these previous posts I have blogged of interest as well: Read up on A Winter Skin Care Guide for Families, A Summer Budget Beauty Guide and a BB Cream Review and Buying Guide to find some additional great recommendations I have personally road tested and loved.

Lately I have been using some new and well trusted, brag-worthy products and being a blogger, means that I feel compelled to share and write about them here. All of the items featured in my pick are budget to mid-level in price range and are really pulling their weight in my beauty bag.

And my latest fabulous finds are...(drumroll):


First up, Benefit's Matterial Girl: This lush little find is a matte-finish setting powder presented in some delightfully girly packaging. It is coloured to suit most fair skin types and is ideal for setting your BB Cream or moisturiser or just use it over your bare skin for reducing shine. It's a nifty little size for tossing in a handbag and it's always taken on any outing in my bag if there's somewhere fun to go and I want to feel a little fancier than usual.

Matterial Girl keeps you looking fresh all day and is lightly scented. Inside is a sweet little powder puff for quick touch ups. This product is a personal favourite and is priced at around the $35 mark for a 14gm container.

 
*Natural World's Brazilian Keratin (pictured below): I have got to say, I am not generally a big fan of hair care products outside of shampoo and conditioner - until I found this beautiful smoothing hair treatment oil and suddenly I am hooked.
 
This was a recent arrival in my Violet Box  monthly subscription box. Having used a keratin treatment successfully years ago (thanks to a hairdresser's recommendation) and then subsequently forgetting all about it, I am so glad this vial of goodness has made an appearance in my life again.
 
This is a lightweight, leave-in hair treatment oil from Soho London, that helps to smooth and add shine while controlling frizz. It is in no way greasy and you only need the tiniest drop to give fantastic results. (This 25ml deluxe sample size may last me a few years!) 
 
My hair has been noticeably shinier and healthier since I have been using this and the weather is no longer giving me bad hair days either. For problem, dry hair I have no hesitation in recommending this.
 
 
No dry skin care routine should be without a practical all round moisturiser that is effective and inexpensive. For everyday use as a family, we love Vaseline Total Moisture Dry Skin. This cream is lightweight and suitable for all over your body. (It's a great non-greasy hand cream too.)
 
This smaller 75ml tube was a supermarket discovery, (we normally buy the larger bottles so that everyone can benefit) and it a good size for taking anywhere with you. This was an insanely low $4 (or so) buy at the supermarket and it really works. Ward off problem skin patches with a daily application of a good all-rounder such as this.
 
 
Zuri by Sleek Skin Care Chapter Five Radiance Boosting Anti-Shine Face Moisturiser SPF30: Since the name of this product just about says it all, I almost don't need to go into this too much.
 
Buy hey, I will anyway!
 
This recent day cream discovery has become a firm favourite of mine. It's a priming face cream that moisturises, firms, contains anti-shine properties and a deluxe radiance boost - It has light reflecting particles that really lift the complexion. Best of all, the 30 plus sun factor means that Autumn days of extended sunshine are not damaging to your skin.
 
This cream is made in Switzerland and comes in a generous 50ml tub. It has a RRP of around $60 however, I picked up several of these on StrawberryNet for an incy $22 each with free shipping - it was a bargain that I really shouldn't be telling you about!
 
 
The Body Shop's Shea Beautifying Oil: I really love a good fossick in a Body Shop store whenever I pass one and it usually spells disaster for my wallet too. I never leave empty handed.
 
My latest find that I am excited about, is this Shea Beautifying Oil. This is a dry oil, (lightweight and highly absorbent) and is suitable for all over use including in your hair! Such a quick way to moisturise those extra dry places and add shine to your hair too. Priced in store at $19.95 this 100ml bottle will last a very long time.
 
 
*Murine Eye Mist Dry and Tired Eyes: Not technically a beauty product at all but as dry eyes are a real affliction at most times of the year for me and many, I have popped this excellent cure in this Autumn body care picks post too.
 
There's nothing worse than making yourself look good and then needing to constantly blink and rub your eyes thanks to seasonal eye dryness. The two just don't go together at all, as an overall look.
 
A quick spray of Murine over your shut eyes and this Eye Mist goes to work immediately to moisturise and refresh your dry and tired eyes. Heating, computer use and fatigue can all contribute to sore, dry eyes and I am finding this a great way of controlling my irritating problem. You can find this easily at your local chemist.
 
So there you have it, my latest skin and hair care favourites - I hope there's a new discovery in here for you too.
 
What steps do you take to combat dry skin in Autumn and Winter?

  2. So I don't change my routine much for the seasons as it hardly gets cold up here, although the hand cream does finally get a workout in winter!

    1. So envious...We have such extremes here in Melbourne. Hand cream is a must no matter where you are though.

  3. I'm in the same boat as you, Jody. I get very dry over Winter. I know that Vaseline dry skin moisturiser well. When I lived in the UK, my hands would get so dry they would crack. This was a saviour for me. The keratin hair treatment sounds great too. My hair is very dry at the moment because of all the swimming I do. I will have to check it out. Thanks :) #teamIBOT

    1. We love the Vaseline. It's such an economical choice and really works well. We've been buying it for years.

  4. I have quite oily skin in summer so it settles down in winter...well the version of winter we get here anyway. I do get dry hands quite quickly though so I do have either baby lotion (because it smells so good) or the Vaseline Dry Skin. I recently discovered a hair cleanser called Wenn and it made my hair feel the best it has in years!

    1. I will have to check out this Wenn so thanks for the tip.
      Baby lotion is lovely however the smell makes me clucky - too many memories!

  5. I might need that eye mist. I've been having a dreadful time with dry eyes lately. My skin could also do with some attention but I'm not sure where to start. It's super dry for the first time every.

  6. Well, if there is a beauty post, I'm all ears! Love to see what different products people recommend and you've got some fab products there! The change of seasons really affect my skin too, but funnily enough you've reminded me about eye drops. I've had the most incredible itchy eyes lately and I was thinking I was allergic to something. It suddenly dawned on me, they are irritated by the fans (still baking hot here in QLD). I think my eyes need a bit more hydration and TLC...I'm into that tomorrow! Thanks for a great post x

    1. Mmm, eyes...I have had probs with mine for a few years now. I think blogging daily doesn't help the situation! Do try the Eye Mist. Hope you've found some new skin care products you like too. :D

  7. I love the sound of the Body Shop's Shea Beautifying Oil and it's well within my budget so I might give it a go! Thanks for linking up at Mum-bo Monday, I hope to see you again this week!

    1. It's fantastic Kelly! I find it's really useful for those days when you're too tired to do all the fussing with separate eye creams and lotions. I just pop a couple of drops of the Shea on my face and spread the rest in my hair and do two tasks in one! You will love this product.

  11. In such a scenario, a starting point would be to change the sunscreen to one that contains only the mineral active ingredients titanium dioxide and/or zinc oxide, which have minimal risk of causing a reaction. Maria

  12. There are typically four types of skin, i.e. normal, oily, dry and sensitive. Some individuals also have a combination of skin types in various areas of their skin. Your skin type can change over the time. For instance, younger individuals are more likely than older ones to possess a normal skin type. anti-wrinkle beauty products
