Ten Winter Beauty Product MUST Haves

February 18, 2019 No Comments

Below I am sharing my top ten favorite winter beauty product MUST haves! Winter here in PA is brutal! (Random thought- have you noticed that only people from Pennsylvania use the abbreviation?? No one says here in OH or I’m from FL. Wonder why that is?! Any way, yes winter sucks and it’s cold as hell here. My pasty skin, dry hair, and chapped lips need some serious help during the winter months. If you’re anywhere on the East coast, you know exactly what I’m talking about. But look no further! Here are my answers to your winter SOS!

1. Olay Age Defying Night Cream

This is an absolute MUST! I just turned 33 and I am not getting any younger so, yes, I have started using age defying products. You can never start to early, right?! This oil free cream leaves my skin feeling soft and moisturized every morning without clogging my pores. Best of all, it leaves my skin feeling hydrated even through the dry winter months.

2. Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Dry Shampoo

Can’t be at the beach? Well this is a beach in a can. Bring the sexy tousled waves on with this toasted coconut texturizing spray. I absolutely LOVE this dry shampoo. I have a slight obsession with dry shampoos and this easily lands in my top 3 dry shampoos. Best part is it smells just like the beach with the toasted coconut scent. Get the beach and skip the annoying sand 😉

3. Aussie’s 3 Minute Miracle

Is it just me or does your hair get so dry in the winter?? I even try to cut out blow drying in the winter and my ends still get so dry. When I do wash my hair, which is probably once ever 7-9 days (Yes, really go to #2 and start using it!) I use this deep conditioner. It helps give my hair the moisture it craves and it smells great too!

4. Johnson’s Baby Oil Shea & Cocoa Butter

Whoever told you baby oil is just for kids, straight up lied to you. Baby oil should NOT be used for trying to fry your skin in the summer. Instead, put it on after a shower or add some to your bath. Every time I shower I apply a little of this to my entire body before I dry off. It really helps keep my skin moisturized and from looking flaky in the winter. I use it all winter and summer long too.

5. Yes to Coconut Ultra Hydrating Scrub & Cleanser Stick

I’s so easy to say YES to this cleanser! It is a cleanser, exfoliator and hydrator in one! Everything you need in one stick and without the mess. The stick makes it so easy to apply. I love that it has coffee in it to gently exfoliate your skin and then added coconut to moisturize.

6. Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum

Do you see a theme here? Coconut everything and I didn’t even plan it! This is a winter MUST. It prevents breakage and makes your hair silky smooth. I use this all summer too. It helps smooth damaged ends while make hair stronger any time of the year! Add this to your list of hair product must haves!

7. St Tropez Self Tan Express Advanced Bronzing Mousse

Want to look like you came right off the beach?! This will quickly be your go to. It gives me a nice glow that doesn’t scream oompa loopma. Question- How do some people not realize they look they came off the set of Charlie & the Chocolate Factory???!! It honestly is the best self tanner I have ever used. I like the color of this better than spray tans. It works perfectly with my skin tone and looks really natural. You can control the darkness of the color by leaving it on 1-3 hours. It goes on bronze so you can easily put on a streak free tan. The only con of this product is the smell. It lingers even after you’ve washed it off. In my mind the con is totally worth all of the pros!

8. Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Body Lotion

I can’t live without cocoa butter int he winter and this body lotion is my absolute favorite. It heals heal dry skin without leaving a greasy heavy feeling. I love that it soaks into the skin quickly so you don’t need extra drying time and it doesn’t rub off on clothes. It leaves my skin with a natural glow and the light smell is perfect!

9. Chapstick Limited Edition Cake Batter

Want to have your cake and eat it too? Well now you can, calorie free. You can thank me later 🙂 But seriously a Chapstick is a MUST in the winter. Lucky for me, I got 2 boxes of 12 the 12 count for Christmas so it should last me until the end of March….but probably only until March. Where do all the chapsticks go? It must be with all my bobby pins and hair ties…

10. Not Your Mother’s Plump for Joy Body Building Dry Shampoo

Because one dry shampoo is NEVER enough! You need a rotation. I absolutely LOOOOVE the smell of this. It’s orange mango and I can never get enough. I use this dry shampoo when I wear my hair straight and curled. It really gives you tons of volume. I actually use it my clean hair just for that. And of course on my dirty hair to make it look clean:) I got 10 days out of my hair by using this and it didn’t leave any white residue. No white wonderland over here!

And that’s all she wrote. Hopefully my ten winter beauty product must haves will give you life this winter! Did I miss something? Leave your MUST have beauty products below!
