After a very rare few months of mild weather (very unlike Chicago at this time of year), we finally woke up to snow! Which reminded me that yes, it really truly is winter. And with the cold temps come some rather unattractive side effects. As a product junkie, I of course have an arsenal to help battle the bleak winter beauty blues. My favorite’s below;
Bobbi Brown Extra Soothing Balm $58 . A high price tag but this stuff is great for lips, cheeks, elbows and even heels. Use sparingly as a little goes a long way!
Bobbi Brown Extra Balm Rinse $58. Love Bobbi Brown!! This is very thick so just a dab will do ya. After washing my face with this balm I never experience the tightness and tingling that comes with wintry dry skin.
Dior Creme Apricot Fortifying Cream for Nails $23.50. I will never be without a pot of this stuff! Literally fixes my dry icky cuticles overnight – even when their in the worst shape. Work into nails and toes before bed – smells great too!!
Dior Creme de Rose Smoothing Plumping Lip Balm $26. This smells FANTASTIC and lasts a really long time on and in the pot!! Heals my dry cracked lips overnight so I always keep a pot in my nightstand. Feels amazing on and provides the best sheen without looking like a gloss. Don’t be fooled by the pinkish color in the pot though, when purchased the balm is actually yellow.
Aquaphor Original Ointment approx $13. What a wonderful all in one!!! When I say I’m obsessed with this stuff, I mean it. I use this everywhere!! On my eyebrows, lids and eyelashes to condition (healthier longer lashes?? Yes please!!) It also keeps the skin around my eyes soft and smooth, so I’m less fearful of wrinkles and crows feet. Heals my lips like a charm, and keeps my heels and elbows smooth to the touch!! I also use it in replace of lotion – rub a quarter size between your hands and smooth all over your body. This tub will last you forever and you will love it!!
Static Guard $4. Keeps away the hair frizzes and those nasty static shocks- ouch!! Spray into the air right before walking out the door.
And don’t forget the ahhhmazing DIY body scrub that I can’t live without!!
