winter essentials

Now that NYC has seen temperatures below freezing (ick), I'm stocking up on my favorite winter beauty products. My skin gets SUPER dry in the winter, and I find myself constantly reapplying moisturizer. I always carry hand lotion on me, as well as Kleenex (let's be honest -- dripping noses are NOT cute).

Here are some other beauty products that I urge you all to try. They are my go-to products, and I swear by each of them.

  1. Chanel Base Lumière -- provides an excellent base for all your make up products. 
  2. Kiehl's Hand Salve -- the best hand lotion that I've found. I've used it for years.
  3. Kate Spade Makeup bag (similar) -- obviously you have to store your products in a cute bag.
  4. Kai Body Butter -- a cream that hydrates all day and smells divine.
  5. Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturizer -- lightweight formula that hydrates immediately.
  6. Amika Oil Treatment -- tames your fly-aways, and gives your hair a non-oily shine.
  7. Malin+Goetz Lip Moisturizer -- I have this everywhere. Next to my bed, in my purse, at my desk. Super glossy and hydrating.
  8. Kleenex
  9. Chanel Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir Intense -- the ONLY mascara I will wear. 

Happy shopping!

I am a huge fan of Kiehl's- their stuff is just amazing beyond belief. You can never go wrong with Chanel, either! Love your finds dear.

I love posts like this! I am so bad about products and always appreciate advice on new brands! Kiehl's is my favorite for everything, and must try the Chanel mascara!

I definitely need to try that Malin+Goetz — it seems I'm always fighting dry lips!

I love the amika oil treatment! I have thin hair and it doesn't make it greasy at all! And you've convinced me that I NEED a Kate Spade makeup bag! Haha. xo

Yes! I have the Malin+Goetz and I love it! Also Aquafor has been really good to my hands. Although I have to admit I can't really complain as i live in the LA area. It gets dry here, ok?! ;o)

I get really dry skin in the winter too and this is my first winter with a Clairisonic and it has made a ton of difference! My moisturizer seems to absorb much better.
