Winter Beauty Essentials

The cold, wet and windy whether is well and truly here for the winter *sigh*. Honestly, when is the weather not like this in the UK?! Anyway, we all have to change up our products for a new season. In the winter I get dry skin but my skin is usually on the oilier side, so now I have to use less powders and a heavier moisturiser. I've made a list of some of my winter essentials.

First off, I adore Soap And Glory products for winter time. They have the nicest lotions, body wash and cremes and they smell delish! I really love the Hand Food and Heel Genius.

Hand Cream.
Now this is a must-have for me. My hands get so dry as soon as the whether gets slightly colder. I really love the Hand Food but my favourite hand creak is by Nivea. I actually carry a travel size Nivea cream in my handbag at all times, there is nothing more uncomfortable than dry itchy hands. Uch! 

Lip Scrub.
I make my own lip scrubs. They are so easy to do and you don't need a lot of ingredients. I use olive oil, vanilla extract and sugar mixed together. I don't even measure them out, I just go by eye. It is literally that easy.

Burts Bees Lipbalm with Pomegranate oil.
OMG this Lipbalm should be in everyone's makeup bag. It is so hydrating and it has a slight red tint to it so that's great for minimal makeup days.

Hair masks.
My hair gets drier in the winter time so I do like to treat my hair to a nice mask everyone once in a while. I love the Loreal Elvive masks and the Aussie 2 minute miracle.

Soap and Glory Sugar Crush scrub and moisturiser.
I love the smell of this range. It's very citrusy and fruity; it has shea & cocoa nut balm, Lime and almond oils and kiwi waterjuice in it. To be completely honest I just 100% love Soap and Glory products because they all smell delicious and they aren't too expensive and you can find them quite easily. But the Sugar Crush scrub and moisturiser is definitely my favourite. 

St Ives face scrub.
This is a scrub lovedby so many. I've read that Victorias Secret model Gigi Hadid is even a fan of this product. It is such a great exfoliant. It does a really good job of getting rid of dead skin cells without wrecking your skin and it smells like apricots and this doesn't have the beads that burst on your face like a lot of scrubs do, (I personally hate those kind of scrubs) this scrub has a grainy texture instead. Just make sure you apply plenty of moisturiser to your skin after you use this. Also, the face wipes are really nice! 

Dove essential moisturiser.
This is something I need to re-purchase. I'm sure you all know how great Dove products are, I have used this brand for as long as I can remember. I am actually using the colour protect hair products right now. But the essential moisturiser is so good. I find that it makes my skin feel silky smooth. It's also really good to apply during your fake tan to maintain it because it is so thick.

What are your winter beauty essentials? Do you love a Soap and Glory Sugar Crush as much as I do? LOL. Let me know your favourite products and what I should try out next.

Love, Becca xoxo

  2. I love the apricot scrub and a good lip scrub! I also make my own but I use honey and sugar. I've been hearing a lot about Soap and Glory products but I don't think they're available here in the US :(


    1. Using honey and sugar sounds nicer than olive oil and sugar. Soap and glory is lovely, I wish they sold it everywhere x
