Winter Skincare: My Top Picks

Winter Skincare

My top winter skincare picks are: 

Laura Mercier Creme Brulee Body Butter
This super rich Body Butter delivers the ultimate in hydrating luxury and absorbs quickly into skin. Shea Butter and Illipe Butter provide rich moisturization, Grape Seed Oil and Jojoba Esters naturally soothe and hydrate while Honey and Aloe Vera Gel help soothe the skin.

This smells amazing. I've probably said that ten times already. It smells like a baked vanilla sugar cookie. What I love most is that this is a thicker body butter but it doesn't feel like one. I normally avoid body butters because they are just too thick and greasy for me. This one has that thicker creamy texture but it soaks into skin like a dream. It becomes the perfect consistency and weight when applied and it really does leave your skin looking soft and the lingering scent will make you feel really pampered.

FusionBeauty LipFusion Clear Balm
Increases the water content of the skin by 6000% in four weeks. Increases/reinforces Natural Moisturizing Factor in the skin. Derived from the Salicornia plant, a coastal plant growing in a salt environment.

I had totally forgotten about this product until my lips were dry, peeling, chapped and bleeding. They were awful. I dug through my drawer of lip products and pulled this out and thought I'd give it a try. I noticed a difference within that day and it only got better from there on out. This seriously helped me with some seriously horrible lip conditions.

Neutrogena Original Hand Cream 
Delivers effective relief for dry, chapped hands. This clinically proven, highly concentrated formula rapidly heals dry hands. It noticeably improves the look and feel of your skin. Hands feel soft and smooth after just one application. Long-lasting, Glycerin-rich, Concentrated.

This has a little different look, texture and feel than other lotions. It looks like it would be a little more oily, but when applied to your hands it really soaks in nicely and they aren't left oily or greasy. I've definitely noticed a difference in my nail and cuticle area which gets very dry in the winter. So join me in a 7 day challenge to get your hands and nails back in shape, just tag #NTG7DayChallenge on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook showing us a photo of your 7 day results!

L'Occitane Divine Cream 
The luxurious, yet miraculously lightweight Divine Cream combines the unique anti-aging properties of everlasting immortelle flowers with the boosted effectiveness of 7 plant-derived active ingredients to give skin the youthful, radiant glow you've always wanted. 

This super thick creamy face lotion is a god send. Although it has a thicker feel, it goes on feeling really lightweight and is super moisturizing. It also has a refreshing light scent to it. This is love baby.

Indie Lee Lavender Oil
A hydrating, all-purpose oil designed for face, body, and hair. Formulated with jojoba oil which is closest to the skin's natural sebum and a blend of lavender and chamomile, this quintessential treatment is ideal for nighttime. Ideal for all skin.

Indie Lee has been a favorite of mine for years and her Lavender Oil is probably my favorite product. I love putting a dropper full of this in the bath or just applying it to slightly wet skin after a bath. The natural lavender scent can help with headaches and soothe away stress and the lightweight oil really soaks in all that needed moisture.

I hope this list helps you to keep your skin looking great this winter season. These are by far some of my absolute favorite products to help combat my dry winter skin and they keep me feeling a little more optimistic looking forward to Spring!
