Winter is a great season because of the holidays, snow, and warm nights cuddled in blankets. However, the cold air causes our skin to get so dry. We are here to recommend our skin essentials to keep our it smooth and soft.


Pond’s Dry Skin Cream, Drugstores, $4.99

This cream is thick and very hydrating. We recommend to put this on at night after you wash your face and you will wake up with super soft skin!

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizer, Department Stores, $27.00

According to Clinique’s website, 22 million women use moisturizer from Clinique. That makes sense because it is so great! This is thin enough to wear under makeup yet it provides a lot of moisture. Plus, many department stores have Clinique free gifts with purchase so you will be able to score some awesome products.


Nivea Lip Care, Drugstores, $3.00

You probably have already tried this lip balm before but if not you definitely should! We love the milk and honey formula but all of them are equally moisturizing. Combat chapped lips by keeping this lip balm in an arm’s reach at all times.


Being Hand Cream, Ulta, $8.00

We love this hand cream! It smooths cracked hands from the cold winter air. It comes in yummy scents like Salted Caramel & Macadamia and Cloudberry & Lychee Blossom. Pro tip: apply this lotion before bed and wear fuzzy gloves to lock in the moisture overnight.  


Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion, Drugstores, $10.99

This lotion is very hydrating to keep your skin so soft! It dries quickly so it won’t make you feel greasy. If you like to take baths, we recommend putting the bottle in your bathwater so your lotion will be warm when you apply it.

Multi-purpose Products

Vaseline Jelly, Drugstores, $5.00

An oldie but a goodie! Vaseline is amazing at soothing chapped skin, chapped lips, protecting cuts, and many other things! If you get nose bleeds from the winter air, we recommend applying Vaseline to the inside of your nostrils with a cotton swab to help moisturize the inside of your nose.

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Swivel Stick, Drugstores, $3.00

This is another fabulous multi-purpose product for chapped lips and skin. It is very easy to apply in its stick format however people may think that you are using a glue stick on your lips because of the size. It is great to help blemishes and marks on your face. Try this out, you won’t regret it!!

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream, Sephora, $30.00

We love this cream that can be used on your face, hands, or body! It is very thick so a little goes a long way. This huge jar will last you the whole season or longer! It is fragrance free and is suitable for all skin types.

We hope you try out some of these products and love them as much as we do!
