With the weather this season doing a number on skin, leaving it dry, chapped, burned, and in general feeling terrible, here are some great products to try out that can help ease winter’s woes.

pic5Hyaluronic Shea Mask ($15)

The mask feels like a lotion going on, and after the recommended 15-20 minutes drying time, is still wet.  It is pretty much entirely clear at that time, and feels gel-like.  It wipes off with warm water and a washcloth.  Formulated with the moisture-binding hyaluronic acid, this deep conditioning mask prevents water loss, dryness and roughness, providing intensive, long-lasting hydration. A rejuvenating blend of soothing oils and botanical extracts deeply nourish dry, damaged and mature skin, while improving elasticity.


Phyto-Nutrient Cleansing Gel ($24)

Featuring phytonutrient mirco-bubbles, this lightweight foaming gel removes makeup and surface impurities, while maintaining the skin’s natural, essential moisture balance and improving hydration, tone and texture. The Phyto-Nutrient Cleansing Gel also features brown, green and red algae extracts that smooth and nourish skin.

pic5Gerard Cosmetics Color Your Smile Lighted Lip Gloss

Long lasting and in quite a few shade options, this has become a favorite of mine.  It doesn’t need to be applied or reapplied often, which is (for me) something I look for and love about a lipstick or lip gloss. It lasts through eating and drinking, and even snow tubing.  Formulated with rich pigmentations, similar to that of a traditional lipstick, that never feather or bleed, the Color Your Smile Lighted Lip Glosses  provide instant shine and moisturization along with collagen boosting peptides to increase lip volume and reduce wrinkles both safely and painlessly. The Color Your Smile Lighted Lip Glosses are packaged with a built in mirror and light for easy use, even in the dark. Shades: Candy Apple, Crystal, Seduction, Jewel and Pouty Princess.

  1. I need to remember to put on my gloss more often. My lips have been taking a beating and they need the protection in the winter air.

  2. I love the color of that lip gloss – so pretty. I am always looking for good skin care products. Thanks for introducing me to this company

    My skin is a mess in the winter. I have to make sure to moisturize or my face will pay for it. Love the lip gloss…love the shades!

  4. vickie couturier says

    yes I try to use more moisturizer in the winter than summer seems that the heat in the house drys skin out more

  5. I ran out of moisturizer a couple weeks ago and my skin is crying! I need to pamper it this weekend!

  6. Even as a guy, my skin is really feeling it this year. Wonder how it would work on males?

  7. I love the sound of those lip glosses! I need something to help with volume! LOL.
