We’ve been raving for a while now about how important it is to adapt your skincare routine to the colder months, so in that aspect, we’re not teaching you anything new. That being said, this week, we decided it was time to help you choose some of our top winter products and understand exactly why you need them in your life. Keep reading to learn more about Tasch’s Winter Favorites.
We had a sit-down with our President & Founder, Tasch (@taschiee), so she could give us the low-down on her essential winter skincare products (and why you shouldn’t live without them, either!). And with a glow like hers, you just know she knows what she’s talking about.
Without further ado, here’s all you need to know about Tasch’s favorite winter products:
iS Clinical - Cleansing Complex $34
This iS Clinicial cleanser is one of our top sellers every season, and without surprise: it is suitable for all skin types and helps with blemish-prone skin. The Cleansing Complex is even used in professional facials and is very effective for removing makeup, making it the ideal basis of your skincare routine.
Skinceuticals - Soothing Cleanser $44
“Skinceuticals’ Soothing Cleanser is the only foaming cleanser that does not leave my skin feeling stripped of its natural oils”, Tasch says. If being used in the AM, we recommend using the cleanser before following up with a SkinCeuticals vitamin C serum and an SPF. If using in the evening, we suggest applying before a SkinCeuticals corrective product or moisturizer.
Life is short, which is why this powerful antioxidant combo is a major favourite. Combined with a superior form of olive leaf extract and pure Vitamins E, A and C, this powerful formulation significantly improves the appearance of uneven, blemish-prone, and ageing skin. All you need is 3-4x drops in the morning (following your gentle cleanse) and the trick is done!
iS Clinical - ProHealth Serum $197.40
Skinceuticals - Phloretin CF $185
According to Tasch, this is a must-have for everyone! It’s also her go-to whenever her skin starts to break out or she is experiencing an uneven skin texture (oftentimes caused by winter dehydration).
Jan Marini - Bioclear Face Lotion $98
Tasch’s top three moisturizers include:
- Jan Marini - Transformation Face Cream
- Vivier Skin - Lexxel
- iS Clinical - Reparative Moisture Emulsion
All of these moisturizers are amazing for harsh weather conditions and indoor heating that leave your skin parched.
Jan Marini - Transformation Face Cream $140
Vivier Skin - Lexxel $92
iS Clinical - Reparative Moisture Emulsion $134.80
Unsure about exactly how to choose the best moisturizer for your skin’s needs? Stay tuned!
“Whenever my skin needs a little detox, I’ll reach for my IMAGE Skincare Purifying Probiotic Mask,” says Tasch. “On the other hand, when I find my skin is ultra-dry and tight, I’ll opt for the Vivier Ultra Hydrating Mask instead.”
IMAGE Skincare - Purifying Probiotic Mask $73
Vivier - Ultra Hydrating Mask $69
As sunscreen is an everyday essential, having more than one option isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
Tasch uses the Skinceuticals Physical Fusion SPF 50 when she needs a matte, tinted everyday base. She is also a big fan of the Coola Sun Silk Drops SPF 30, which protects against not only the sun’s rays but also the harmful blue light coming from all of our devices. Its lightweight and breathable formula with Hyaluronic Acid leaves the most beautiful glow to your skin, and it’s vegan!
Our most popular SPF, the TiZO3 Facial Primer Sunscreen, is also one of her staples. It is lightly tinted and makes the perfect primer under any kind of makeup coverage!
Skinceuticals - Physical Fusion SPF 50 $48
Coola - Sun Silk Drops SPF 30 $75
TiZO3 - Facial Primer Sunscreen $55
Last but not least, Tasch’s essentials include:
- The Mount Lai Gua Sha Stone: for an instant lift and cancelling out morning puffiness
- The Slip Slipsilk™ Pillowcase: designed to help your skin retain moisture by keeping your face products where they belong (that is, on your face, and not your pillowcase!). Slipsilk™ is also a natural temperature regulator, which means it helps your body retain heat in cold weather––making their products the ideal winter companions.
Mount Lai - Gua Sha Stone $42
