Winter Beauty Essentials

  1. Laura Mercier Crème de Pistache Scrub

Get rid of that irksome flaky skin by slathering this fabulous pistachio-scented body scrub. True, the scent is a little unusual but nothing that will overpower your mind. Instead, it is kind of warm, relaxing and very subtle.

Scoop out some and apply all over your body. This luxury in a tub effectively sloughs away dead cells resulting in a beautifully polished and smooth skin. Unlike many other scrubs that leave behind a residue and might feel greasy, Laura Mercier Crème de Pistache Scrub is very hydrating and doesn’t sit on the skin. A definite Winter must-have! You can find this at Nordstorm, Sephora, Macy’s, and other stores.

  1. Smashbox Blush Rush in ‘Flush’

We love snow-kissed cheeks in Winter. Shades of pinks and berries give the illusion of fresh, radiant, just-playing-in-the-snow look. Smashbox Blush Rush in ‘Flush’ is a soft petal pink color, very feminine. It is has got a lovely pigmentation that enables you to pick just the right amount of color for your cheeks. It leaves behind a flush of soft pink which lasts a good couple of hours. This velvety-soft blush also blends like a dream. The swivel-mirror in the packaging makes it perfect for application on-the-go. If you are looking to give your cheeks a rosy hint, then this blush is for you.

 3. L’Occitane Cherry Blossom Hand Cream

It is the hands that get the driest in Winter and nobody likes rough, dry hands. L’Occitane Cherry Blossom Hand Cream enriched with the heavenly shea butter and more nourishing ingredients like grape seed, honey, coconut oil and almond, is ideal to treat dry hands.

Infused with red cherries, it somehow is both floral and fruity. The scent is very delightful and fresh. But the best part is how moisturizing it is. It sinks into the skin and does not feel oily. This handy tube can easily be stuffed into your bag. And you won’t need to suffer from dryness anymore.

If you want something heavier for extremely dry hands, then try L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream.

  1. Philosophy Amazing Grace Whipped Body Crème

Aah this stuff is divine! Lightweight, super-hydrating, velvety and subtly fragranced, Philosophy Amazing Grace Whipped Body Crème is your best friend in Winter. It is one of the perfect body cream formulas we have ever come across. It has a silky texture that melts into the skin, guaranteeing hydration that lasts long. In addition, it smells so luxurious and heavenly. It contains shea butter, aloe and olive fruit extract that gives you the softest, smoothest skin ever.

  1. Nuxe Rêve de Miel Lip Balm

There is not even person who has tried the Nuxe Rêve de Miel Lip Balm and not raved about it. Celebrities, makeup artists, beauty bloggers all swear by its perfect formula. It is like water for your parched lips! The rich formula keeps hydrating your lips throughout the day, without appearing too glossy and noticeable, without being uncomfortable and without being greasy. The finish is almost-matte, still you won’t feel the need to reapply it every hour. This thing is a wonder!

  1. Deborah Lippmann Cuticle Oil

Amidst all the body care, how can one forget their nails. As it gets colder, the nail beds gets rougher. They are sometimes an unappealing sight. After all, we all want our nail polishes to look good and they don’t if the skin around our nails is calloused. But fret not, Deborah Lippmann Cuticle Oil will soften the cuticles with its ingredients of jojoba oil, coconut oil and Vitamin E. The oil sets fast into the cuticles and you won’t have to worry about greasy nail beds. And not to forget it smells fantastic!

  1. NARS Audacious Lipstick in ‘Leslie’

We believe, cold weather calls for deep reds and maroons. There is something warming about a dark burgundy lipstick. NARS Audacious Lipstick in ‘Leslie’ is also one such deep, dark red-brown that looks supremely glamorous and put-together. It has a satin-like texture and smooth application. It does not drag over the lips and sets to a glossy finish. It has a full-on opaque color and lasts for quite many hours. If you are a dark lips fan, you are not going to regret this particular purchase!
