Dr Lipp Nipple Balm for Lips: My current go-to lip balm is this 100% Lanolin number from Dr Lipp. Nipple Balm *queue loads of girly chuckles* is basically a no frills, no sparkles, no colour lip balm that has cult status with makeup artists. It's perfect for chapped lips as it gives the lips a thick protective coat to protect it from the elements.
Origins Make A Difference Rejuvenating Treatment: I raved about this earlier on in the year and credit it with a lot of the resurfacing on my skin. This is great for dry and dehydrated skin that needs a good boost. It find it sinks into my face as soon as I apply it, leave my skin soft and hydrated without feeling over saturated or greasy.
Caudalie Divine Oil: I picked this as a cold weather hero as it's a brilliant multipurpose oil that I can be used all over the body. I use in the ends of my hair, as a facial oil to give my face a nice massage, cuticle oil and on the dryer parts of my body such as my knees and elbows. Divine Oil is a classic blend of 4 different vegetable oils all of which have variety of benefits for the skin. It smells absolutely gorgeous and natural, completely inoffensive and very soothing. I love the fact it's really light and it's super hand as it comes in a spray bottle which cuts out a lot of the mess you seem to get with oils you pour. A few spritz's and dry skin feels instantly nourished and less flakey or dry!
Hydraluron: I've been using this religiously for a while now and I can honestly say it's one of the nicest skincare items I own. If you have dry and dehydrated skin Hydraluron is designed to combat dehydration of the skin. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body, but as we grow older we tend to lose our ability to produce as much as we would like. Therefore our skin doesn't retain as much hydration as we should. I've been using this under my normal moisturiser and it's really made a big difference to how my skin feels. Overtime it's become less tight, more plump and softer.
Chanel Soliel Tan De Chanel: I'm big on winter glow, well I'm a big fan of all year round glow. But in the winter I think it's nice to use something a bit fresher like a cream bronzer. I do love my powders but the cold weather can make them look cakey and sit on top of the skin. This gives a really nice summery glow without being too orange or too dark. It blends effortlessy into the skin as a base for your makeup or you can use it to contour your cheekbones. A great all year round product but definitely worth investing in during the colder months!
Topshop Head over Heels Cream Blush: I dug this out earlier in the month when my skin was looking a bit too flakey for my usual blushes. It's a beautiful warming pinky peach with a soft cream to powder finish. It gives the cheeks a lovely flush of colour while also being suitable for cold winter air.
Origins Drink Up Mask: Drink Up is perfect face mask for dry and dehryated skin.This mask has a fresh, fruity natural scent, sort of like apricots. The cream itself is thick, rich and hydrating and once applied and my skin happily drinks up the moisture. Despite my skin being oily it is fairly dehydrated, so using this once a week helps me get the moisture I need without over saturating the skin.
