Brrrr! It’s cold outside, baby. My skin is dry from head to toe and it’s not even December yet. Despite the dropping temps I am determined to keep things glowy, hydrated and radiant. Here are my top picks for the month that I am oh-so thankful for as winter rolls around!
Grown Alchemist Watermelon & Vitamin Lip Balm: I discovered this under the radar Australian brand a few weeks ago at The Apartment, a super cute concept store in Nyc. I love the fact that Grown Alchemist is organic. But aside from the all-natural benefits, the luxe, silky antioxidant and vitamin rich lip balm leaves my lips unbelievably hydrated, soft and shiny, and the smell is simply delish!
Tata Harper Replenishing Nutrient Complex: I have been using this oil/serum for a while now as the last step in my skincare regime. It’s all-natural and non-toxic and makes my skin GLOW while relieving irritation and dry skin. You gotta love Tata!
Lipstick Queen Velvet Rope, Brat Pack: This is my current go-to red. It’s like the PERFECT red, girls. I even featured it in my latest red lip story that I rocked on Halloween. It’s very pigmented and just provides just the right amount of matte-ness.
SK-II Facial Treatment Essence: If you haven’t tried this baby, you are missing out. I have been using for a few weeks now, and no joke, my skin has never looked better. The “miracle water” stimulates cellular rejuvenation and works to balance skin’s pH. Kate Bosworth and Cate Blanchett swear by it. So basically what are you waiting for?
Byredo Bal d’Afrique Hand Cream: With all the traveling you will be doing this holiday season, this is a handbag MUST! It smells like hhhheaven and will keep your hands feeling soft during the cold winter months. Love the sleek, modern packaging too, obvsies.
Byredo (yes again) Eau De Cologne in Gypsy Water: Holy Moly. Gypsy Water is another Kate Bosworth essential, and years ago I got addicted too. You just can’t stop spraying it. Now you and your boy can share this Sweden made scent and spritz spritz away! Also, the bottle makes your bathroom look a hell of a lot cooler.
Aromatherapy Associates Relax Eye Mask: I travel all the time, and constantly find myself up in the air. I have always been into eye pillows both on the plane and at home, but this one is filled with lavender and lined in silk to help me relax and sleep better than ever.
Givenchy Nail Lacquer Glitter Top Coat: Whatever Givenchy says, I do. This gold spiked nail polish is the perfect way to toast the holiday season. Apply a single layer of polish to add some sparkles or multiple layers to create a jeweled manicure.
Tom Ford Limited Edition Platinum Cream Eye Color: This is super easy to apply and adds a gold shimmer that’s not over the top. Apply to whole eye line for a dramatic effect, or just to the corners for something sexy and subdued.
Chantecaille Liquid Lumière Highlighting Fluid in Sheen: I received this in Net-A-Porter’s Holiday Gift Set, and instantly became obsessed. It illuminates my skin while delivering long-term, anti-aging benefits. I like to mix it in with my foundation for an all over glow. It’s perfect.
