WINTER… In Texas, you never know what it is going to be like. Sometimes it can snow, & other times – like today it can be 69 degrees in January. I am a bit late getting to this post this time around… & to be honest – I have no good excuse. haha. 🙂 Somehow most of these things ended up being about skincare. It is really important to always keep your skin hydrated & nice, but especially when it is cold outside.
I hope you enjoy my winter favs – Please do not hesitate to leave a comment for any requests you would like me to cover on a post or in a video! I would love to hear from you!!
Hempz Vanilla Plum Lotion.
We all get a little ashy during the winter… I have a hard time with certain textures & smells. I am very specific on what lotions I use. By chance at a Tjmaxx one day – I came across this lotion. I bought it originally for the smell but quickly fell in love. Now, it is my FAVORITE lotion… & one of the things.
Hempz Vanilla Plum Herbal Moisturizer is enriched with 100% pure organic hemp seed oil, & blended with natural extracts to provide dramatic skin hydration & nourishment for 12 hours. This moisturizer helps to improve the overall health and condition of your skin.• Plum Oil has natural conditioning properties that help nourish and soothe skin leaving it feeling soft, smooth and supple. • Shea butter, Ginseng & natural extracts help calm, soothe and condition skin. • Vitamins A, C & E help protect skin from natural and environmentally-triggered oxidants. • enriched with 100% Pure Natural Hemp Seed Oil. • THC drug-free.
Carmex Winter Mint Lip Balm
If you are like me, not only do I struggle with dry skin in the winter – but also DRY LIPS! It is the worst & it can really hurt. Like I said in the previous item above – I am weird about texture & scents… When I found this chapstick, it was like my lips were in heaven. It is not sticky & it ACTUALLY HYDRATES your lips! The only unfortunate thing is that this scent is a limited edition… I am not sure why, because it is SO FREAKING GOOD!
I do have a link that you can find it at below if you are interested. This flavor reminds me of Trident mint gum… yummmmyy 🙂
Hyaluronic Moisture Boost Serum
OKAY… this post is unintentionally becoming all about skin, so I am just going to roll with it! 🙂 One of the greatest things I found this winter was Trader Joe’s Hyaluronic Moisture Boost Serum. It helps you to enhance your skin’s natural moisture, then you can add to it as needed. Did you know – one gram of hyaluronic acid can attract & hold onto several liters of water. This Hyaluronic Serum was formulated by top dermatologists to contain 1% sodium hyaluronate—making it a lightweight, water-based, unscented serum to moisturize skin.
Instructions: Apply to freshly cleansed skin and follow with a liberal application of your favorite moisturizer.
The amazing thing is that it is also only $8.99 — it’s a high-end Serum at a really reasonable price.
Blueberry & Açaí Facial Scrub
& the facial care recommendations continue… I think that skin care is vital. I love scrubs & exfoliants, & when I ran out of my favorite one this winter – I wanted to discover more products that I would love for cheaper… I found this amazing scrub at Trader Joes. It reminds me of yogurt, & it smells so amazing. In a typical drugstore situation – it can be hard to find a legit scrub that can do the job. I found that most scrubs were heavy on the gel & way less of the scrub. The Blueberry & Açaí Facial Scrub comes in a heavy, frosted-glass jar & you’ll immediately smell its sweet blueberry scent.
Instructions: Use 2-3 times per week for best results.
The Blueberry & Açaí Facial Scrub only costs $5.99 — a product your face will thank you for.
