I, for one, cannot believe that Christmas is less than two weeks away! I feel like it was just yesterday I was writing about the start of the Christmas season, and here we are counting down the days. Something that always boggled my mind is that most of the Christmas season is actually during the fall. Winter only officially begins on December 21st, so until then we are really in the last days of the autumn season.
I really enjoy the winter, but I do have to prepare for the season. Personally, the cold weather destroys my skin and dries it out terribly. Every year around this time I start prepping for the colder weather and revamping my skincare routine is part of that preparation. I came across a product from MERIT Beauty that I have fallen in love with and thought might help someone else during these colder months.
This Great Skin Instant Glow Serum is a winter game-changer for dry skin. I started using the product about a month ago and just ordered another bottle to stock up on. I, personally, have oily skin so I am weary of anything that is moisturizing and this serum is not oily at all. (And yes: I know it sounds contradictory to have oily skin that can become dry in the cold, but that’s why finding a happy medium is so important!) I love how lightweight the formula is, and it does not feel like I am caking on any kind of lotion or something. I also love that it’s vegan, cruelty-free, and clean.
While We’re Here…
While I have your attention, there are a few other products by MERIT Beauty that I love and wish more women knew about! The first is their Signature Lip Lightweight Lipstick. I have been using this lipstick in the color “Baby” every day for almost a year. It is absolutely perfect for daily use, does not dry out or crack, and is as soothing as a lip balm. I also love the packaging of this product.
The other product by MERIT Beauty that I am obsessed with is the Flush Balm Cheek Color. I know I’ve written about this somewhere before, but I prefer rouge sticks or balms to actual powdered blushes. I find they last a lot longer and look more natural. I’ve been using the Flush Balm in the color “Beverly Hills” for almost a year now and it’s a makeup bag must-have for me. (This Flush Balm also makes for a great lip color… haha!)
Like the Great Skin Instant Glow Serum, the Signature Lip and Flush Balm are also vegan, cruelty-free, and clean. I’ve become so invested in my skincare routine over the last year and I am glad that I have found products by MERIT Beauty to join the party.
