Get Your Hands on these Wonderful Winter Must-Haves!

December has arrived beauties! Winter is just around the corner now  and I’m rounding up some of my favorite beauty must-haves to get you through this chilly season. Every year, new products are launched and it can be quite tough choosing any favorites at all. However, there are just some beauty products that are consistently great and deserve the recognition. So cozy up and check them out!

Archipelago Milk Bubble Bath: December can be a pretty chaotic month and you’re going to need a way to soothe away the stress of the holidays.  Archipelago’s Milk Bubble Bath is the perfect remedy for those cold winter nights where you just need to relax.  This customer-favorite contains dried milk solids and natural proteins that also relieve dry, winter skin. Bubbles, anyone?

Bumble & bumble Surf Spray: I know what you’re thinking—who needs a beach spray in December? The answer? Everyone! It might not be a great time to hit the beach, but that doesn’t mean tousled beach texture is out of style. Don’t let your hair fall flat this winter and give it some body with Bumble & bumble! A blend of kukui seed, mango seed and coconut oils give your hair movement while keeping it conditioned.

bareMinerals Your Kiss Is On My List: When bareMinerals launched their Gen Nude lipstick collection earlier this year, we just couldn’t get enough of their gorgeous shades! If you’ve had a hard time picking your favorite, this wonderful little collection is just what you need to cure your indecisiveness.  8 miniature-sized lipsticks make it easy to keep in your clutch for the holiday season, too. Who doesn’t love mini-sized beauty products?


L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil: If this best-seller isn’t sitting in your shower yet, you are missing out. An oil to foam formula, you’ll get to experience luxury in the shower every time you use it. Rich in Almond Oil, your skin will feel sensationally soft and ready for winter weather. Just a little drop goes a long way, so get your loofah ready for some lathering love.

Archipelago Havana Travel Tin Candle: Whether you pair this with a relaxing bubble bath or take it with you while you travel for the holidays, you’ll love the amazing scent of Havana. Let the fragrance of bergamot, tobacco, ylang ylang transport you to a peaceful place and take your mind off everyday stressors.

OPI Polish Sunrise...Bedtime! This year’s OPI Collection pays homage to the classic Audrey Hepburn and her iconic  film, Breakfast at Tiffany’s. You can never go wrong with a glitter polish for the holidays and Sunrise...Bedtime! is such a pretty pink color you’ll constantly be reaching for it for your manis and pedis.

Pink Pewter Adjustable Beaded Bracelet: We love any style accessories that can be easily dressed up or down, especially when they look unique.  Pink Pewter’s beautifully crafted bracelets will add a little pizzazz to your winter wardrobe and they come in a variety of styles and colors. You can wear them alone or layer them for a little edge.

Dermalogica Age Smart Lip Renewal Complex: When it comes to your lips, winter weather can be quite brutal on them, causing dryness and discomfort. Get some soothing relief with Dermalogica’s Lip Renewal Complex. Infused with Vitamin E,  Shea Butter, Avocado and Cocoa Seed Butters, your lips will feel moisturized and protected against environmental changes.

My favorite Winter must-haves are the Estee Lauder Nutritious Moisturizer and the Exuviance Restorative Complex for my dry skin. I alternate both of them because where I take Chemotherapy I have extremely dry skin and I have to keep it moisturized with masks and moisturizers.

Lip balm or a lip product that helps with winter dryness is important for me in the winter. I'm also searching for a face moisturizer that is amazing but not greasy.
