Whether we’re ready or not, chilly temps are here to stay (at least for another 3 or so months…), so in an effort to save our skin from Mother’s Nature’s deep freeze, we headed to some of our favorite beauty spots to grab some winter season saviors. Here’s what you should be adding to your beauty bag this season…

St. Tropez Self-Tanner

Although the sun may be in hibernation for a while, it doesn’t mean you can’t get that bronzy glow. We are loving this light weight, St. Tropez self-tanner. We have found that by using the St. Tropez mit with the product, you are guaranteed to avoid streaks and get the soft and gorgeous glow you are looking for this winter.

BareMinerals Butter Drench

For those who suffer with really dry skin in these colder months, you will want to try out this BareMinerals essential. Packed with shea butter, this moisturizer was created to deeply replenish skin and give your skin the moisture it’s been searching for – our skin is rejoicing!

Clinique All About Lips

Cold weather (unfortunately) means dry lips… When it comes to chapped lips, we’ve been there and we get it. It’s that time of year again to stock up on your favorite chap sticks and lip treatments. This season we are loving the intense hydration we get from the Clinique All About Lips lip treatment. This products gives both immediate and long term benefits by immediately helping to hydrate and smooth as well as minimizing fine lines and wrinkles in the long run.

Origins Eye Doctor Under Eye Moisturizer

The skin that surrounds your eyes is very thin and sensitive, and when the weather starts to change, these areas can get easily irritated and dry. We love this product because not only will it help to keep the under eye area smooth and hydrated, but it will also help to make your makeup look flawless in these areas.

Living Proof Restore Mask Treatment

Not only does our skin get dry and tired this time of year, but so does our hair. Now that our Sephora carries the brand Living Proof, we have fallen in love with their hair treatments. This restoring hair mask helps to nourish and restore your hair to help make it stronger and shinier no matter what type of hair you have!


There you have it! Which one will be saving your skin (or hair) this season?
