We asked our beauty expert besties what their favorite products were to help survive this time of year, and now we’re sharing them (shoppable links included!) with you, Dolls!
“There is nothing that drives me more crazy this time of year than staticy hair during sweater weather! Ugh… I hate dry skin, but I loathe dry hair! And, I have to admit, I am undoubtedly a product junkie. However, to battle the elements and tame my mane all winter long, I always turn to Davines hair products. I’m obsessed with their NOUNOU Shampoo, Conditioner, and Hair Mask, followed by their Living Enzyme Infusion. I appreciate that Davines beauty products are created sustainable… but even more than than, I appreciate that they work!”
-- life+style blogger, Meegan Hofmeister, of SignedM.
“I really really love Alba Very Emollient Body Lotion. It’s nothing fancy, I pick it up at Target! However, it’s my fav because it’s super hydrating without being thick and greasy, and it doesn’t leave a film on my skin. Also, and this is key for me: it’s spray tan safe!”
-- Tiffany Lipp, co-founder of Sol Sisters Sunless Tan.
“I’m currently obsessed with Milkweed Oil. I slather it all over my face and body! Milkweed is a source of an anti-aging oil with an antioxidant value almost 50 percent higher than blueberries. But milkweed oil is getting even greater attention because it helps block a wide spectrum of UV rays. Being the founder of a beauty brand, Dollup Beauty, it’s a priority of mine to always be researching natural remedies that I can incorporate into making products that work and that my consumers are proud to use.”
-- Nikki Hynek, founder of Dollup Beauty
“MAC Cosmetics’ Prep + Prime Fix+ is like coffee for your face! It’s been top of my list of products I can’t live without for years now. It soothes, refreshes, and hydrates my skin, while setting and prolonging the wear of my makeup. It comes in different scents, like coconut, lavender, and rose, which is delicious! It’s a regular part of my daily makeup routine year round, and I love using it on clients as well.”
-- Melissa Banes, professional makeup artist for Dollup Beauty
“My get-me-through product is Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream. I hate the feel of dried out hands, and my cuticles are always splitting in this weather… ouch! Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream is my savior, and I always have it stashed in my handbag. Plus, it smells really yummy!”
-- Lauren Beltramea, instablogger (@laurenbeltrameaxoxo)
“Any product by Hempz; love my Hempz Lotion for Sensitive Skin! I’m vegan and I’m pregnant… so I’m really conscious about what I put in and on my body. I love that Hempz products are all confirmed to be cruelty-free and vegan! Hempz uses 100% pure natural hemp seed oil in their products and are also paraben-free and gluten-free. Music to my ears!”
-- Jenni Mangas, personal stylist for WRITTEN Apparel
