Winter Skin Essentials
This has been quite the harsh winter and it has totally taken a toll on my skin!  Thankfully, I've discovered a few uhhh-mazing beauties to keep me in winter survival mode.  The other day, a phenomenal mask arrived at my doorstep!  Kerafole by Bioelements is a deep purging facial mask that reveals fresh, radiant skin with natural exfoliators.  A favorite of celebrity fitness guru Tracy Anderson, this powerful  mask reveals new radiance, smoothes and brightens, uncovers and revitalizes skin.  You'll notice a difference in as little as one use!  I know i did!

Scientific Brightening Serum by Kenneth Beer MD is just what the doctor ordered this winter.  This little powerhouse helps minimize the appearance of skin discoloration and pigment spots.  It helps create a more even skin tone and brighter complexion while reducing redness in skin tone.  This is so major for me since redness is one of my biggest skin struggles!  This serum is a brightening cocktail that is Hydroquinone Free and works wonder on my skin, particularly this time of year!

Enza Essentials has been a favorite skincare line of mine.  While I am constantly testing out new skincare, there are certainly a few brands that just stand out for me and this is one of them.  Their products are high quality and feel uhhhh-mazing on my skin!  Lets chat about their Lip Treatment!  I'm obsessed with great lip products and this one is probably one of the very best I've tried thus far!  I use this every night before bed and every morning before leaving the house.  My lips have never felt so good in my life... obsessed!  BTW did you enter my Instagram giveaway?   You could win one of these babies yourself (valued at $30)! Check out all the details here!

Speaking of Enza Essentials, I was recently gifted their lovely body lotion and shower gel for my birthday.  OH EM GEE... they feel incredible and smell delicious!  If you're a lavender lover like me, you'll die for these lovelies!  The shower gel is fragrant and hydrating.  The lotion leaves my body feeling smooth and pretty.  Love love LOVE!

A couple of months ago, I teamed up with P & G for an amazing giveaway for a FAB bag (the same one gifted at the people's choice awards).  I completely fell in love with one of the products inside this bag and have been using it ever since.  Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Super Cream is so hydrating.   It leaves my skin feeling soft and nourished.  Oh and can we talk about how gorgeous it smells?!  Love this stuff... pssst... I hear it's a favorite of Tim Gunn's! 

So these beauties help me combat this crazy harsh winter we are enduring here in Jersey.  What are some of your winter go-to products?  Any recommendations?
