Favorite Winter Beauty Products

With winter in full swing, it's the time of year when my skin completely freaks out and becomes a huge problem.  In dealing with the unpredictabilities my skin is capable of, there are a few products I wouldn't be able to get through these long, cold months without.

Favorite Winter Beauty Products

I have a problem when it comes to lip products.  I have at least two chapsticks/lip-glosses in my pockets at all times.  I go through tubes of Baby Lips like no other.  Hands-down, they're my favorite drug store product.  I'm also obsessed with Sugar lip tints.  They're super moisturizing and the tinted ones give the perfect amount of color.  If you're looking for a gloss, Clarins Lip Perfector is my favorite.  For an over-night treatment, C.O. Bigelow balm is amazing.  You go to bed with dry, cracked lips and when you wake up, they're, like BeyoncĂ© would say, flawless.

It's not until the cold dry months of winter that I realize how amazing my Clinique moisturizer is.  There's a reason it's a cult favorite - it works.  In addition to my daily moisturizer, sometimes I need a little something extra for dry patches.  First Aid Beauty's Ultra Repair Concentrate treatment works wonders.  It's magic in a jar.  

Another great overnight product is Origins Drink-Up Intensive mask.  A weekly mask can make a huge difference in your skin.

Dry, frizzy hair is never a good look.  For as long as I can remember I've used Aussie's 3-Minute Miracle hair mask.  It always leaves my hair feeling soft and smooth.

I go back to the arctic (State College, PA) next week and you can bet that I will be brining every one of these products back with me.
