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 shapes and sounds
in the night,
Feeling tall when you see
on concrete to break up
