Winter Essentials

When winter hits, I instantly get out the beauty products I know I will be needing to help me out in these cold months! Here are a few products that I always run back to and which I find essential in my beauty bag, to keep my skin healthy and moisturised during the winter...

Lush Popcorn Lip Scrub - This has been a life saver for me as I am one of those people, that as soon as the colder weather appears so do my dry lips, but using this scrub once a week or so just makes them feels fresh and smooth. I haven't used a lot of lip scrubs, it's just not something I would usually purchase but this has turned into a must have product for me! Let's not forget it is popcorn flavour and looks and tastes amazing.

Baby Lips and EOS balms - Lip balms are definitely essential I always have 1 (..or 5) in my bag at all times and these are two of my favourites. Baby Lips is one I always like to have as I always purchase the ones with a tint of colour, above is the nude, it's always nice to add a little colour to the lips as well as keeping them moisturised. EOS products smell and taste amazing! The one above is sweet mint and is really refreshing on the lips (I also love the strawberry) they keep your lips lovely and smooth, but aren't greasy or sticky, which is perfect for this weather, there is nothing worse than when the wind blows your hair straight into glossy, sticky lips - nightmare!

 Soap and Glory Hand Food - This is a hand cream I always go back to, it's basic, a great size and smells lovely! I'm not a one for using hand cream very much to be honest, but after wearing gloves and trying to keep warm it's nice on a evening to just give yourself a little pamper and make sure your skin isn't drying out. This hand cream is non-greasy and has always saved me from getting dry hands in the winter!

Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask - My face never normally gets dry, I have the opposite problem, it is normally always too oily! But when I'm feeling under the weather at this time of year, as unfortunately we all normally get at some point, my skin seems to be affected instantly and become dry! This product has been great to help soothe the skin and leaves me waking up without dry areas, although it is a mask it isn't extremely thick - which I love, and it soaks in pretty quickly. It works wonders through the night and is a new, favourite skincare product this year for my winter beauty bag!

Winter is the time when my skin needs all the help it can get, so these products have worked wonders for me and are definitely a few of my favourites this year!

Have you got any wonderful winter beauty essentials?
