Beauty Essentials you will need this Winter
Does Winter call for different beauty products? In my opinion, it absolutely does. The cold has a real effect on our bodies and that calls for specialised products.
As always, I am one for ‘less is more’, so the less products you can buy and get away with, the better.
Here is my list of Winter Beauty Essentials:
Anne Semonin nude body scrub, 200ml
Susanne Kaufmann Bath Oil for the Senses
My star bath product for a few years now – it just smells divine and instantly relaxes me.
The Chemistry Brand Hydration Complex, 100ml
I have ‘hard heels’ and have been looking for something that really worked – and this is the best cream I found so far. I love the Look Fantastic website as they really have a great mix of brands and this little thing did everything it said. Start with a fresh pedicure and you may be in for 3 weeks before you may need another one (if only nails didn’t grow!).
La Mer Hand Treatment, 100ml
Pricey? A little. But it is rich yet not sticky, has a very subtle scent and really does hydrate your hands like very few others. You really notice how dry patches disappear and a nice subtle shine. A little goes a long way, so do expect it to last a whole Winter.
By Terry Baume De Rose SPF15
One of the best lip balms around for a while now – it is obviously one of my 5 tried and tested lip balms for Winter. I like the subtle taste but what I really like is how it truly prevents lip chapping and how it restores your lips when it is too late. You will keep buying this product.
Dior Ambre Nuit Hand Soap, 350ml
Costs £50 and you can get it from Dior or select airport locations
This was one of my last airport purchases pre-lock down and I LOVE this scent. It is warm, it is sexy – I love Amber. And the bottle is also gorgeous (and much larger than many others featured below)
REVLON Pro Collection Salon One Step Hair Dryer and Volumiser
Currently sold out in the UK. But a new version for medium and shorter hair is now available and it is fantastic.
For best results, let hair air dry for 5 minutes or so, so it isn’t dripping wet (but it still works well). As I am a tiny bit lazy, those 5 minutes allow me to style the hair much faster. Current timing is 10 minutes. Watch this short video (it is the one that made me buy it)
Boots Dual Defence Nasal Spray 20ml
Costs £5.99 from Boots
I have to thank Mary-Anne, a blog reader from the USA for this one who asked if I could buy this spray (a handful of them) for her. I was intrigued and bought an extra one for myself – and for the past 2 winters, we have been living on this. As soon as you get the first sign of a cold, you start spraying. I don’t want to jinx it, but we have been cold-free for 2 winters now and I buy this for all my family, name each with a sharpie and wouldn’t dare travel without it. Is this a beauty product? Well, maybe!
I hope you like my selection of Winter beauty products and do let me know if you try one more more.
