Baby it's cold outside! Seriously! I'm currently sitting under a super soft and cozy faux fur blankie in hopes that my tootsies warm up a little. I have a little bit of a love/hate relationship with the cooler weather. I love all the cozy things about winter such as flannel sheets, faux fur blankies and pillows, hats and mittens, lattes and of course my hair looks way better in the winter than it does in the summer (i hate you humidity)! What i don't love however, is feeling cold, the aftermath of snow (you feel me right now Buffalo peeps right?), and of course, dry chapped skin! Thankfully, I've got a few beauty essentials to share with you that may just take care of this little situation.
Chapped lips? No problem! Swipe a dab of NUXE Reve De Miel lip balm and your lips will feel like new again. This even took care of my little girls' horrible chapped lip situation. Mia now visits my room every night after I've already tucked her into bed to make sure i swipe her little lips with some "chackstick". This creamy formula is so hydrating, smells incredible and I'm loving their new packaging in order of their anniversary celebration!
Phenome 24-Hour Moisturizing System is your one stop shop to beautiful skin. This cream can be worn day or night and works hard to truly sink into skin, plumping fine lines and wrinkles. Also very noteworthy, this beauty is vegan so you won't have to worry about exposing skin to dyes, fragrances and other harsh ingredients. The vegan formula utilizes a base of ecological plant waters, nutrient-rich liquid culled from plants that serves as the basis for the entire Phenome line! You'll want to keep in on your nightstand for sure!
Teadora's line of nourishing creams and balms is seriously designed for dehydrated skin. I know this because a while back, my legs felt so dry and awful and i knew i needed to bring in the 'big guns' to really take care of my little situation. I reached for Teadora's Body Butter to help me bring my skin back to its normal state. In just a couple of days, my skin felt silky smooth and so soft to the touch. Teadora's Body Butters are available in Rain forest at Dawn and Rain forest at Dusk. Both come housed in an 8oz jar and will last you for quite some time as a little goes a long way! Give them a go... you will love them!
OK i already adore Tatcha... but bring gold into the equation and suddenly my skin is like yes, YES! This sudden weather transition has been so harsh on my skin. When Tatcha's Camelia Beauty Oil arrived at my doorstep on one of the coldest days this season, i took it as a sign from above! I massaged a few drops into my skin and i swear my skin was like 'omg thank you Carla'! No, it totally spoke to me for real! I saw and felt the difference almost immediately. But here's the thing, what i really love about this beauty oil is its versatility! Did you know you could wear this beauty on your nails and hair too??? OK, now i need a truckload of this amazing beauty oil because I'm seriously addicted! You will be too when you see what i can do for you and your skin, hair and nails. Oh and the little specs of gold floating around inside the bottle will make you feel fancy! It will! Wait there's more! How much do you love me??? I have a special code for you beginning 12/28-12/8 save 20% at Tacha.com. Simply use code FF2014 at check out! Happy Shoppping!
These are just a few of the products I'm loving right now to transition my skin into the cold weather. I hope you'll give some of them a try. I know you will love them too!
