5 Essential Beauty Products For Winter


The barometer has finally dropped here in Phoenix, and our endless days of temperatures in the 80’s have disappeared for a while leaaving us with bone chilling highs in the 60’s.

You may laugh but I’m sitting in my house freezing, with thick socks, sweats and a fleece on!

The change in temperature means skin, hair and scalp need extra lovin, so I’ve been clicking away on Amazon.com (how did we ever survive without it???), re-ordering my winter staples.

5 Essential Beauty Products For Winter

Nioxin hair Dermabrasion Treatment 75 ml / 2.5 oz ANTI-AGING TREATMENT 


Just as the skin on your face needs exfoliating, so does the skin on your scalp. I’ve written about this magic product several times before – I use it at the beginning of each season. When you clear your scalp your hair grows in thicker and shinier. I always see a big difference in mine, it gets glossier, fuller and bouncier. And there’s no time quite like the holidays to get bouncy hair!

Malin and Goetz Recovery Treatment Oil


Winter skin needs a booster product, and nothing beats a good facial oil. The Malin and Goetz Recovery Treatment Oil instantly makes skin look and feel smoother, softer, more supple and its proprietary blend of 9 natural oils and powerful antioxidants help combat signs of aging while making your complexion radiant.
You can buy it online at Space NK

Weleda Skin Food, 2.5 Ounce


I learned about this one a few years back when my friend Nico moved back from Milan. When your skin is dry, when it has to battle cold weather, when it’s just feeling tired out, lacking luster, looking dull, Weleda Skin Food is the most amazing balm like moisturizer that is the best rescue product ever!
Find it at Target or at Amazon

Ouai Treatment Mask


cold weather, wind, central heating and hats all rough your hair up and dry it out. These deep treatment masks (there are 8 in the box)
repair hair and leave it smooth and shiny after just one treatment.
Available online at Space NK

Dr Lipp Original Nipple Balm For Lips


It’s no secret that one of the most effective products for cracked, chapped or dry lips is good old nipple cream. Anyone who has breast fed a baby will know all about nipple creams, and how healing and soothing they are both to sore nipples and to lips in need!
You can also use this to groom brows, add shine to cheeks, and even as a cuticle cream.

Rescue Me.

Ever feel like you need rescuing? These days I do. On an almost daily basis. (Sometimes life is just straight up stressful.)

Blowing you kisses from the makeup room on International Kiss A Ginger Day.
And desperately needing a haircut…

Even though it’s not exactly freezing where I live – not compared to most of the country anyway, something happens to my skin and to my hair every January.

Both get a little lifeless, both get a little dull, both get dehydrated.

So I’m always looking for a wonder product to come save me.

A couple of months back I was shooting a huge campaign for Starbucks, and had the absolute pleasure of working with a hairstylist who had arrived in from Milan a couple of days before. She was completely fabulous. And her skin showed no tell tale signs of jetlag.

One of our assistants, Whitney, made this behind the scenes video

She introduced me to a product that she was slathering onto her gorgeous skin, and told me it was the holy grail of skincare. So of course I got on Amazon.com and ordered it immediately.

It’s a Swiss product that looks expensive but is infact, super affordable.
Weleda Skin Food is apparently meant to be a body product, but if your skin is dry or irritated, it’s fantastic on your face too. It’s job is to hydrate, restore and protect skin with nourishing plant oils and extracts.


I love the feel of Weleda Skin Food on my skin. It’s like a long, cold drink of water on a hot, hot day. Especially right now when the combination of cold weather and central heating is making my skin feel parched. 

Over the Christmas break I finally found time to really sort through the Corinna B’s World makeup closet, organize it, pare it down, get it streamlined.
I found some amazing products that I completely forgot I had, which almost felt like Christmas all over again.
One of the products I found was Sebastian’s Potion 9.


I used to use this a lifetime ago. It’s been around for 20 years now, and I still remember when it first came out. I was living the Hollywood dream at the time, and every hairstylist and makeup artist was using it.
Anyway, somehow along the way I forgot about this fabulous hair product. (Apparently my hair didn’t though!) I am so overdue for a hair cut, my locks have been looking frazzled and dried out – not their usual shiny self. As soon as I started using  Potion 9 again my hair got all kinds of happy! It’s back to super shiny and lusterous and feels really soft. It’s also got lots of body back.
I’m so excited – it’s like finding a whole new product! And it’s only half the price of anything else on my shelf which is making me super happy too!
