Winter Must-Haves, 1/01/2009

Winters bring us snow, toasted marshmallows, lower temperatures, warm coats, hot chocolate and low humidity. Some of these leave your skin chapped and your hair full of static! Here are some winter must-haves for you to pick up this season, and add moisture back into your life again!

Aquaphor Healing Ointment  - A must have for your purse and your medicine cabinet. A little dab on a dry patch or as a lip balm, or to moisturize your cuticles, heals all such ailments!

Carol's Daughter Recipe for Great Hair - All of these products are super moisture packed for dry hair. This set includes an 8 oz Tui Herbal Shampoo, an 8 oz Tui Hair Smoothie, and 2 oz Tui Hair Oil. 

Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream – Fast relief for dry, chapped hands. This is in my purse every winter. 

Korres Lip Butters  - By far, my favorite lip balm of all time! Created with rice wax and shea butter for deep hydration. Comes in a variety of flavors, like guava, pomegranate, quince, wild rose, and plum.
Ojon Restorative Hair Treatment – This is a multipurpose hair product. It can be a deep conditioning treatment, a leave-in conditioner and a shine enhancer. It all depends on how much product you are using for whichever purpose you wish to use it! It is made of pure ojon palm nut oil.  This is the beauty secret to the Central American Mosquito Indians, who are referred to in their native tongue as "Tawira", which means the "people of beautiful hair". Need I say more?

The Body Shop Body Butters
– Choose a deeply hydrating body butter from a vast collection of flavors like shea butter, coconut, cocoa butter, olive, strawberry, mango, and satsuma. I am a big fan of  brazil nut because the fragrance does not interfere with my favorite perfume!

Mary Kay Intense Moisture Cream – This moisturizer leaves dry skin hydrated and soft for 10 hours. Created with marine extract, vitamin E, copper, magnesium and zinc, all very nourishing to the skin.  This has been my winter moisturizer for the past few years.

L'Occitane Ultra Rich Eye Balm – Nourishing, hydrating and rich in shea butter. I bought this last winter when the skin around my eyes became extra dry and easily irritated by everything.  I love it!

Prescriptives Custom Blend Makeup – You may have noticed that your summer foundation is a bit dark right about now. I love the Prescriptives formula- literally your skin in a bottle! I also wear the custom blended concealer and loose powder.  In my winter formulas, I have them add moisturizers, while my summer formulas have oil controlling properties.

Benefit Cosmetics Boxed Powders Collection
– Rev up your complexion this winter with the perfect touch of blush!
Georgia: a lovely peach for a warm healthy glow.
Dallas: the perfect combination of bronzer and blush
10: a bronzer and highlighter in one sweep

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector – Mix a little bit of luminizer into your foundation, or apply it directly to the skin before foundation to brighten up your complexion. This formula has Spf 20 and comes in six luminous shades.

Sephora Brand Smokey Eye Palette – Strong eyes really make a statement  in the winter.  Palette has four eye colors, black eyeliner and a mascara. Perfect!

Bare Escentuals Buxom Lips
– Possibly one of the most moisturizing lips glosses on the market!
