Beauty Buy Series: Winter Blues [SKINCARE DUO]
Hello, fab followers! This week, I bring to you our hot beauty buys to combat the effects of chilly winds and temperatures, specifically focusing on the face. Dry, parched skin and dull or rough texture are all symptoms of the changing of the seasons, and even though the first official day of winter isn’t until December 21, considering NYC’s first snowfall took place earlier this month, we’d rather be prepared than stick to technicalities.
“Continuous moisture recovery for very dry skin.” This hydrating lotion is a saint among multi-use moisturizers everywhere. The best part: it never leaves any sort of greasy feeling after application.
Can be used day or night – and yes, even though it’s not specified as a face moisturizer, it can be used as such too! I like using it in the evenings, applying right out of the shower. Each morning during my skincare routine, I can tell just how much moisture was sealed in overnight as I wash my face – feeling so silky and smooth!

You might say “huh…” but Vitamin E Oil is one of my go-to items that just happens to be somewhat of a secret (until now). If you have extremely dry skin and need an extra boost – something purposely a bit oilier than standard moisturizers, give this oil a try. Just a few drops will do; gently pat on your face, targeting areas prone to irritation and dryness.
An added plus: Vitamin E Oil is a natural remedy that can help fade out acne scars! Just apply topically day and night to promote the gradual fading of any discoloration.
$7.99 – $10.79 at Walgreens, Soap.com, Drugstore.com, and more
