Winter Beauty Buys

Winter Beauty Buys

It’s absolutely freezing and the heating is on, which makes the transition from frosty outdoor walks to warm, cosy gatherings by the fire hugely satisfying, but a bit troublesome for your skin.

So here’s my collection of the best Winter Beauty Buys to see you through the chilly days and party nights out!

Clarins HydraQuench Cream £35 A super moisturising cream that relieves very dry and wintery skin instantly. I always recommend this cream to everyone as it’s so brilliant!

Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm £3.69 Apply a thick layer of this nourishing 100% natural lip balm at night to counteract cracked lips by morning.

The Body Shop Shimmer Cube Palette in Blue/Grey £16 I love these cute cubes of eye shadow. Use one colour all over your eyelids for day and top up with a darker colour at night. Wet an eye shadow brush with a little water for a more intense colour.

Clarins Joli Rouge Lipstick in Soft Berry £19 A punchy festive red that’s very long lasting and soft and creamy in texture.

Clinique Deep Comfort Body Butter £25 I absolutely love this body butter. Thick, rich and comforting and it’s unscented which makes it ideal for sensitive skin.

Weleda Wild Rose Deodorant £8.95 It’s a good idea to swap your usual deodorant for a gentler, more natural version for the winter months.

Sterimar Isotonic Nasal Hygiene spray £7.99 Not a beauty product per se, but this stuff works wonders if you’re feeling sneezy or if you suffer with sore, painful sinuses. A truly fantastic buy!

Why is it called ‘eye shadow’?
I associate shadows
with sheer matt darkness
and light
and shapes and sounds
in the night,
creeping around.
Feeling tall when you see
your shadow
on concrete to break up
the brutal.
