Winter Skin Essentials

Hey y'all!

I have shared skincare with y'all many, many times before on the blog-but this time I'm shaking things up and sharing my newest favorite products with you (plus one oldie favorite!)

This winter has been so harsh on my skin, and although I've found a couple of remedies that I love, you can never have too many ways to hydrate.

Hydrating Rose Masque
My first favorite are face masks, specifically the Rose masque from Sephora. This is a hydrating sheet mask and it's one of my favorite ones that I have ever tried (I also love this one by Exuviance!)
The scent is really light and fresh & I love the moisture that this left on my face. And at $6, you seriously can't beat it.

Exuviance Sheer Daily Protector
Just because it's winter, doesn't mean you don't need a sunscreen.
Exuviance is one of my favorite skincare lines, plus it's so accessible because it's available at Ulta!
You can also visit their website to purchase, but either way-you need to get your hands on this.
It's such a light formula that you can wear under your makeup, it doesn't leave your face white or greasy!
By wearing a daily sunscreen (especially this one because it's SPF 50) you can prevent premature aging. This light formula also smoothes imperfections and evens your natural skin-tone.
On Saturdays, I love to rock this and some mascara and call it a day!

Sally Hansen Healthy Cuticles Now!
Winter is terrible on my nails, it makes them dry and brittle. My cuticles get red and angry, it's just a bad thing. Thankfully when I was scouring the aisles in Target looking for something to take the pain away, I found this little orange gem.
It smells DELICIOUS, but it also is so soothing.
I put it on most nights before I go to sleep and by the morning my cuticles are softened and if I use it continually it makes my nails feel much stronger.

EOS Lip Balm in Coconut Milk
My mom is so sweet and puts a couple of EOS balms in my Christmas stocking every year.
This is the balm that I keep by my bathroom sink, but I secretly wish I had this one in my bag-on my desk-by my chair in the living room-in the truck...basically everywhere!
It's such a light flavor (is that what it's called?) and it's the most moisturizing EOS I have ever had.

Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer
I first got this in one of my Target Beauty Boxes and I also got the Nivea In-Shower body lotion as well...I finally got to try them both out and this is the one that I preferred most because you don't have to rinse it off.
It leaves my skin so moisturized and it lasts all day long.
I highly recommend picking this up!
Check your clearance sections in Target, I got a two-pack of full size product for almost half price.

Is winter as hard on y'all's skin as it has been on mine?
What products help you get over the dry-ness?!

I hope you found some products to try out and I hope you'll come back soon!

Until next time. . .

  19. I am SO in to all of these shower moisturizers! I tried the Nieva one in November and absolutely loved it, definitely a good pick. I also can NEVER pass up some good cuticle oil or balm. My cuticles are always so dry and it looks disgusting. Thanks for sharing these!
