My Winter Beauty Essentials

I can't believe we are now coming towards the end of November. I can feel the chill in the air, I'm wrapping up warm when I go outside and I'm already sipping on hot mugs of cocoa. As soon as I feel that temperature drop I always change my skincare routine as I find in the colder months my skin needs a lot more TLC. Today I thought I'd put together a post all about my beauty essentials for winter.

1. Coco Chanel Mademoiselle -
I like to change my perfume with the season and Coco Mademoiselle has been a favourite of mine for going up to ten years now. It's sophisticated, sexy and elegant and a scent that I tend to find myself wearing more in the colder months, especially in the evenings. 

2. Balmi Lip Balm -
I discovered Balmi a year or so ago after I won one of their competitions on Twitter and I've been hooked ever since. Their lip balm is made from shea butter, contains SPF 15 and come in a whole array of different flavours. My current favourites are coconut and mint and I never leave the house without one.

3. Crabtree & Evelyn Hand Therapy -
My hands tend to get quite chapped in the colder months so a quality hand cream is certainly needed. Crabtree & Evelyn is my go to brand for this reason as their hand therapy creams are so concentrated and not only leave my skin feeling supple but the scents are out of this world too. I have to admit that I've started quite the collection of them!

4. Bliss Triple Oxygen Day Cream -
One of the most important parts of my beauty regime in winter has got to be moisturising my face because like my hands it can become very dry. I find that using Bliss face masks and day creams multiple times a day really help keep my skin hydrated and soft. We all know how important that is, 
have you ever tried applying makeup to dry skin? Nightmare! 

5. John Frida Hair Serum -
As well as my hands and face becoming very dry and unruly in the colder months, so does my hair! When the temperature drops my hair needs more than just a quick shampoo and condition and needs the added TLC from a hair serum. The Frizz Ease serum from John Freida works a charm as it's one of the only products that keeps my hair looking relatively normal at this time of year.

    I'm also addicted to the Norwegian hand cream as it definitely works better than anything else in this weather.

  8. I love Loccitane shea butter hand cream after it was recommended to me by a pharmacist

  9. I love this selection; a good few classics! I've never tried Balmi though, I should give that a go. I don't tend to change my products according to weather, only the quantity of them I use. I might look into it.

  10. I really like your beauty products during winter season. Your perfume selection is also a perfect choice. The Coco Mademoiselle is a great fragrance especially for using in winter. It has some great notes and the fragrance last long. Thanks for sharing your winter selection.

  11. I love the balmi lip balm range, I have a coconut none and its fab when I have dry chapped lips in the winter, megan loves to land it too, I use moisturizer all year round as I suffer with dry skin on my face xxx

  12. I think I will buy one from my local store like.
