Winter Essentials

Winter Essentials

As Winter is here, I thought that I would mention some essentials which you would find useful for this season.

Body Butter- My skin gets quite dry in the Winter so I like to use body butter/body moisturiser to take care of my skin. To top it off, I end up smelling amazing. The righteous butter from Soap and Glory has a lovely fresh smell and makes me feel SO smooth!

Hand Cream- Hand cream is more than necessary in the Winter. I hate when my hands look and feel so dry. Hand cream is a must all year round.

Hair Treatment- I don't know about you, but my hair colour is so dull in the Winter months. The hair treatment I use is called Marilyn from Lush and it's made to brighten blonde hair. This is perfect in the Winter when you need that glow.

Vaseline- My lips always get so dry and chapped in the colder months. I usually cake my lips in Vaseline every night before I go to sleep and during the day. I also suffer from angular cheilitis which is a split in the corners of the mouth. It's sore and so painful to eat and yawn as I can't really open my mouth wide enough, Vaseline is also my saviour product for this.

Nail Polish- I love having a good A/W colour nail polish in the Winter season. 'Very Berry' from Soap and Glory is one of my favourites.

Moisturiser- I use moisturiser for my face every morning and night anyway but my face gets a lot more dry around this season - especially my forehead. So during the day, I apply some more moisturiser to hydrate my skin.

What are your Winter essentials?

  1. These are such good essentials! My hands constantly go funny in the cold so I'm loving the body shop hand creams at the minute! I can't say I'm a massive fan of vaseline, it's too jellyish for me (i know that sounds ridiculous but I couldn't think of another word for it ahah.) I just don't really like it much I suppose. I'm definitely more of a chapstick kinda girl!

    I've never head of that hair treatment from lush but I might have to try that out! My hair gets so mousy in the winter! Thanks for recommending it, do they have smaller pots? <3

    This was a really great post- I've never thought about what my essentials are!



    1. I love the body shop products! You're the first person I know who dislikes Vaseline, haha. I got the hair treatment for my birthday as a gift so I'm not too sure if they do smaller pots, you'll have to have a look.

      Thank you Anne.
