Winter plays havoc with our skin and lightweight summer moisturisers just won’t cut it! You want powerful cominbations of clinically proven ingredients which will nourish, hydrate, buff and cleanse, with a barely there texture! For exfoliating, moisturising and even eye care, Luxe Bible have rounded up our favourite and ultra luxurious winter skin-care must-buys!
Olverum Body Polish (200ml £42)
Another winner from the brilliant Olverum, the 200ml Body Polish priced at £42 is the, pardon the pun, the crème de la crème of at home exfoliators. With a luxury spa like quality about this product, Olverum Body Polish is the ultimate in self-care rituals boosting skin renewal and whole-body rejuvenation. Its souffle like consistency is rare for body polish, meaning it spreads across the skin smoothly with a velvety quality. The effortlessly spreadable texture ensures effective exfoliation without irritation, while essential oils like bergamot and lavandin boost the skin’s elasticity, along with grapefruit which brightens the skin’s tone and papaya enzyme to gently dissolve dead skin.
Great for prepping skin for summer, or in winter to brighten, tone, energise and reverse the effects of the cold weather, Olverum Body Polish will boost circulation, encourage cell renewal and stimulate the lympathic system. Apply a thin layer and leave for at least 5 minutes while the enzymes do their work. Rinse and pat dry. Available at Space NK and the Olverum website.
Rescue & Relieve Anti-Inflammatory Moisturiser (50ml £114)
When the price point rises with skincare, it’s usually because there’s some complex ingredients in there that are really going to work hard for your skin!
That’s true of the Rescue & Relieve Probiotic Anti-Inflammatory Moisturiser from Skin Bureaux who’ve formulated a powerful cocktail of key ingredients which work in harmony together, whilst being kind and gentle to your skin.
For 40 something skin, this is perfect, hormonal stresses, sensitivities and dryness are all addressed in this hydrating, soothing and calming moisturizer. As well as having a vitamin rich blend, the combo of CBD and CBG are where the anti-inflammatory magic in the moisturiser happens. These natural cannabis plant extracts work in synergy, repairing and regenerating, and they’re also clinically proven to provide results.
As always, with moisturisers that contain hyaluronic acid, the result is hydrated, plumper skin, with this particular variation being 60 x more soluble. Niacinamide (a form of B3), calms redness and flare ups while ‘AHA’ Lactic Acid works to naturally exfoliate away dead skin and promotes renewal and therefore that fresh glow!
Best used after a serum, use regularly, day and night and start seeing results immediately. We have been converted! Buy it here.
Angela Langford I Can See Clearly Now Eye Oil (50ml £15)
Ever used an oil as a cleanser? We hadn’t either, but since switching over, we can totally see the benefits! We really put Angela Langford’s I Can See Clearly Now Eye Oil after a big night out, with eye shadow, eyeliner and waterproof mascara to contend with, and we were delighted with the results.
Containing organic argan to promote elasticity, and safflower and lemon to nourish and rejuvenate, this eye oil will bring off the toughest wearing eye products in just a few light sweeps!
With it being especially important to treat the delicate eye area (and those growing wrinkles around the eyes) with some extra love, the oil formulation is perfect! Use just one of two pumps, warm in the hands and apply around the eyes, massaging in gently. Then just wash off with warm water and cotton wool – it’s that’s easy.
Jojoba, vitamin e and rose geranium along with other gorgeous ingredients, sooth gently, and smell incredible – as with all Langford’s products. They’re also vegetarian and vegan friendly. Shop it here.
The Organic Pharmacy’s Rose Diamond Face Cream (50ml £145)

The silky cream glides across the skin, absorbing quickly for a sumptuous feel that will uplift, moisturise and leave you with an airbrushed finish.
