In case you hadn't noticed it's winter. So today I'm going to show you some of the things that I think are essential for wintertime.
As I mentioned in my November Favourites my skin is dry at the best of times but during the winter it gets significantly worse. So to combat this I use a moisturiser. The one I am using just now is the Superdrug Vitamin E Intense Moisture Cream. (£2.99 from Superdrug) To moisturise my hands I love The Body Shop hand creams. I have the Spiced Apple and Frosted Berries scents but I also love the Mango and Satsuma ones. (£4 from The Body Shop)
Once my hands are silky soft thanks to my Body Shop hand creams I like to paint my nails a gorgeous berry colour. I love this one by Avon in the shade Cherry Jubilee. (normally £6 but currently only £2.75 from avon.com)
Now my makeup essentials. I love highlighter any time of the year but I think it looks so pretty at Christmas parties. I really like Makeup Revolution Iconic Lights and Contour Pro palette. (£8 from Superdrug) To go with the highlighted skin I love winged eyeliner. If I can magically make it look even that is. To do my eyeliner I prefer a felt tip applicator to a brush. The one I am currently using is the Collection Extreme 24hr Felt Tip Liner. (£2.99 from Superdrug) Finally for lips you can't go wrong with a berry lip to match the nails. I've recently been using the Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick in 107 (£5.49 from Superdrug) which I like but has almost run out so I'm open to suggestions. Something in a similiar colour, not drying or patchy and long lasting. Leave any recommendations in the comments. However, before I put on a dark lipstick, or whenever I remember, I put on a moisturising lip balm. The one from Nivea is really hydrating and smells really good too. (normally £1.65 from Superdrug but it's currently £1.09)
The last thing which is a Winter Essential for me is candles. This one from Yankee Candle called Christmas Eve smells amazing.The small jar is currently sold out on the Yankee Candle website but they sell lots of various sizes and Yankee Candle is sold in so many places. Plus it's super festive considering it's called Christmas Eve! I have the small jar which is £6.74 but they range in price depending on size. On the website it says it has top notes of orange, almond, lime and lemon. Then mid notes of red berry, cinnamon and nutmeg. Finally it's base notes are violet, amber, creamy praline and vanilla. That basically means it's like Christmas in a jar!
So those are all of my Winter Essentials. Let me know some of yours in the comments. What are your must have products for wintertime? See you soon with another Christmas-y post.
