December for me is filled with holiday celebrations with family and friends, all while battling the cold New England weather. Today, I’m talking about some of my recent favorite beauty products that have been getting me through December already and I know will be on heavy rotation all winter.
I was given Birchbox as a gift and was a little skeptical after the first month’s box. In my second box though, I received a sample of Beauty Protector’s Protect and Detangle spray. The first thing I fell in love with about this spray was the scent- it’s amazing! The second thing I fell in love with was all that it offered- it detangles, protects from heat and UV and conditions- all in just a few spritz.
This hand cream from L’Occitane is a must-have of mine every winter. It’s super moisturizing so helps keep your hands soft and smooth, while preventing cracking skin from the rough winter. I’ve been known to have one at home, one at my desk and a travel size in my purse. I seriously love this hand cream.
When I read this post from Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere about M.A.C’s Rebel Lipstick, I was hesitant about her claim that this is the one lipstick that looks good on anyone. The Rebel shade is a rich, plum shade and I was certain it wouldn’t look good on me. However, I took the advice anyways and purchased it- I’m so glad I did! I never would have thought this would look good on me, but it’s a great color. Perfect for the holiday season or all winter long- just don’t tell my red lipstick 🙂
Who doesn’t want their makeup to last all day? I certainly do, especially this time of year when I’m often heading straight from work to cocktails with girlfriends or a Christmas celebration. My mom introduced me to this product and I swear by it now. Just spray it on after you apply your makeup and you’ll be set for day to night!
Skoah Hydradew Mask, $45
I started going to Skoah for facials before our wedding and fell in love with their skin care “trainers” and their amazing products! The Hydradew Mask is my favorite all year long, but especially this time of , when the dry heat inside and bitter cold winds outside dry out my face. I simply apply this mask a few times a week before bed, go to sleep and wake up with moisturized skin!
So those are my favorite winter beauty buys- what are yours?
