We all know that the cold weather seriously harms our skin's health. Bad news, fall finally showed up, and in France, you better double protect your skin if you don't want to face redness and your skin to twinge. Luckily, here at Califorjay, we love talking and sharing about skincare and beauty secrets. We believe that skincare is very important, that it matters as much as anything. So here's a list of affordable products which actually work for all skin types.


Bioderma sensibio micellar water

Makeup artist swears by this micellar water, and Caudalie's. Why? Well because it is not only suitable fall all skin types, but it also wipes away makeup and dirt in one motion. In one motion, your skin will be removed of makeup and will be cleansed. Ready for the next step.

Fresh soy face cleanser

You've probably heard about the Luna cleansing brush from Foreo. This brush has literally blew up the sales in the past two years. Celebrities like the Ferragni sister promoted it, pretending that it saved their skin. But is it really worth the hype? For now, here's the face wash you need to get from the same brand. I've tried it, and I can tell you that this one is really worth the hype. Its texture's really good, and it leaves your skin bright and fresh.

Melvita honey body balm and Sea of Spa papaya body cream

Body skincare is something we tend to forget in our everyday routine. Either by lack of time, or by forgetting about it, we seriously make a huge mistake, especially in fall and winter. It is during this period that our skin needs the most of our attention. The cold weather makes the skin lose its protective barrel and tightens up, causing irritations, pains and dryness. I've tried a couple of creams and oils, but so far, these two body creams made the difference. I bought the first one in a local drugstore while I was in Israel. I used it for the first time while on a trip to the mountains. I swear to God that this cream literally saved my skin and kept it safe from dryness, in spite of the very cold weather. It is composed of papaya and smells like heaven. You'll love its creamy texture. I've been using the second one for a couple of days now, and I can tell you from this short time of experience that it's the bomb. I was looking for a body cream which contained natural ingredients like honey for my very dry skin, and it moisturized my skin like never. You can go for them eyes closed!

Alba Botanica Acne Pimple Patchs

I've discovered these acne patches thanks to Kourtney Kardashian. Although I don't really have acne since I have stopped my treatment, I sometimes breakout, due to extra sebum production, to my period, or because I eat too much sugar. I've tried these once,and two days later, my zits were gone. Two days, because I used it overnight with a drying lotion.

Avene Cold Cream Hand cream

Hands are the first to suffer from dryness. The skin, such as the face skin, is really thin, and not as resistant as on other parts of our body. This cream from Avene will save your hands. I like the creamy texture and it smells not bad at all. You can shop it in any pharmacy, or online.

La Roche Posay Lip Balm

This lip balm literally saved my lips when I was taking my treatment for acne. I started taking it a year ago exactly when it got colder, and I remember my lips were really dry. In May, it got worse. I had my mouth corners dry and open. This balm made this thing go away in two weeks. I recommend it if you have very dry lips. It'll help and prevent against dryness.
