Winter is here, so today I want to share the best winter skincare products with you that are really amazing during the colder temps. These are some of the best winter skincare products I have found and they help soothe and hydrate my sensitive skin and even give it a bit of a glow, which can be tricky this time of year. All of these products are fragrance free, as I find them easier to tolerate.  Even the essentials oils in some of my favorite organic and green beauty products can irritate my skin, so I try to avoid them as much as possible. This time of year, it is so important to baby your skin. All of these products are super gentle, yet very effective.

If you have any winter skincare products that you love, please share them in the comments below.  I am always up for trying new things.


DE SLAAI CLEANSING BALM| This  cleansing balm removes every stitch of makeup and leaves my skin feeling fresh and hydrated. I use it with a warm washcloth to give my face a mini steam treatment and gently remove it. I use a clean washcloth every night and then just toss it in the wash.

SKYN ICELAND ARCTIC HYDRATION MASK | This mask can be a bit messy to apply, but the results are so worth it. Your skin feels so good while the mask is on.  You can literally feel it working. Afterwards, your skin is so plumb and hydrated, even glowing.  The results lasted a few days and I  was completely sold on this stuff.  You can check out my Instastories about applying this mask here. Just click on     the pink Skincare Icon in my profile.

DRUNK ELEPHANT MARULA OIL | This oil has been a favorite of mine for years and for good reason.  It is lightweight, yet penetrates quickly to leave skin hydrated, but not greasy at all.  I usually mix a few drops into my evening moisturizer to amp up hydration at night.


LANEIGE LIP SLEEPING MASK| This is the best lip stuff I have EVER used – hands down. I tried another lip mask recently and it was not even close! It is the most soothing, hydrating lip mask on the market.  I apply it at night and wake up to soft & hydrated lips. It also makes a great stocking stuffer.

PEACH & LILY SERUM |  This stuff has done wonders for my skin and I talk about it all the time on Instagram.  It is gentle, yet a total powerhouse.   It is calming fights all the signs of aging and leaves skin smoother and more even toned. I use this morning and evening and will never be without it again. 

REN OVERNIGHT RECOVERY BALM | I apply this at night when my skin needs an extra boost of moisture.  It is super rich, so if you are oily, this may not works for you. Formulated with nourishing ingredients like antioxidants and jojoba oil, this  night cream works to gently reduce signs of aging, hypersensitivity, free radical damage, dryness and redness. It also helps your skin’s natural repair system by doubling skin cell turnover, which helps your complexion reach its ultimate glow by sunrise. It is also very clean. 


CLARINS GLOW BOOSTER || When the winter has you feeling blah and pasty, this will help. It is a gradual self tanner that will impart a nice, healthy glow after just a couple of days. I add just a few drops into my morning moisturizer and it really helps to banish pale winter skin.  Admittedly, I was a bit surprised by the size of the bottle for the money when it arrived.  It is tiny! But, I used it all spring and summer and barely dented the bottle, so don’t let the size put you off.

EUCERIN Q10 ANTI WRINKLE CREAM | One of the best moisturizers on the market and it is such a steal.  This has been touted as a Dupe for the uber pricey Creme de La Mer, which is $250 a jar.  This cream is rich and luxurious, but soaks into the skin.  I find it extremely nourishing and hydrating and I am never without it in the winter time.  It is fabulous for sensitive skin and one of my best beauty secrets.

CERAVE ULTRA HEALING BALM | Some of the best beauty products don’t come in fancy packaging. I have been a loyal user of this brand and this product in particular, especially in the winter.  It is a great lip balm, and I use it on my feet for dry cracked heels as well as on my ragged winter cuticles. It is also a great highlighter for your cheekbones without the shimmer.  Just dap a little on for a little glow.


I hope you find this helpful.  I am hoping for warmer temps soon, but until then, I will keep these work horses in my arsenal and at least my skin will be happy.

  1. Im going to try the Glass Skin product as soon as I finish my clinique laser wear serum (which I like but don’t find does anything ‘special’ for me). Can you recommend a good eye cream for super dry under eyes? I am oily everywhere but my under eyes is so dry it makes concealer look crepey!

    1. Hi Christina,

      I have a blog post with all of my favorite eye creams, but I think you would like the Kiehl’s Creamy avocado eye cream. Aslo, have you tried some eyepatches? They can really help as well.

  2. It will be really good of color blind people like me if you make hyperlinks font a little darker. They are almost invisible to me 🙂
