5 Essential Beauty Items For Winter ~ Beauty Tip Of The Week #35

My friends over at Glossier.com recently asked me about my essential beauty products for winter.
Like me, the girls at Glossier prefer to see a really gorgeous complexion rather than a face masked in makeup. 
So with winter’s cold winds, ice and snow, the drying effects of central heating and the general havoc the season wrecks on your skin, here are my essential items for winter beauty.

Oil Cleanser

Tatcha Camellia Cleansing Oil

Oil cleansers are amazing. They dissolve makeup, clean your skin and leave it with a silky soft finish. They are incredibly soothing to sensitive or irritated skin, luscious on dry skin, and even fabulous for oily skin, because oil lifts away oil.

Try Tatcha Camellia Cleansing Oil

Soothing Face Mist

Glossier Soothing Face Mist

After cleansing, or whenever your skin feels tight or dry try spritzing a little soothing face mist. You can even lightly spritz it over makeup that looks dehydrated to breathe some new life into it.

Face mists are wonderful to have with you when you travel and are a lovely pick me up for your skin.

Try Glossier’s Soothing Face Mist, made with roses and aloe.

Eye Gels

Diaforce Gold and Diamond Hydrogels

When the skin around your eyes needs some extra lovin’ try spending 10 to 15 minutes with a pair of eye gels. They soothe tired or dehydrated under-eyes, take away puffiness, diminish fine lines and wrinkles and make you look and feel revitalized.

A Really Good Lip Balm


When the weather gets cold your lips get dried and chapped, which as best is unsightly and at worst is very painful, especially when they crack open. To stay ahead of lip chapping or to help it heal if its already happening your lips need a super sonic lip balm.

Try Charlotte Tilbury Lip Magic. It contains bee propolis and argan oil and also works as a fabulous lipstick base.

Add In A Hair Oil

Bumble And Bumble Hairdressers Invisible Oil

Your hair is also in need of some extra help in the winter months. Like your skin it gets dry, add in hats and scarves creating extra frizz and your formerly smooth hair starts to look totally frazzled.

A lightweight hair oil helps it stay nourished, healthy and shiny.

Try Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil. You can find it online at SpaceNK
