5 Things in My Beauty Bag | 07

With a deep, deep freeze in New England it means my skin goes into a parched, miserable state. By the end of the day, my face feels tight, itchy and in need of some hydration. I sometimes take some oil or moisturizer and pat it all over my face so I get some relief before I get home and can get off my makeup. I am looking for a thirst quenching, skin softening moisturizer to nourish my sensitive dry face that will keep my skin hydrated all day. There are so many option out there and I am at a loss. I am thinking about this Ultra Moisturizing Balm, but it might be too think to wear under my makeup.  Have any ideas?  I would love some help!

In the mean time, I love this hand lotion (posted here), I keep one in my bag, next to my bed and on my desk. It is thick, but sinks in and feels great.  I am a big fan of these silk pillows (I have a pink one for traveling so I don’t lose my white one in a sea of white Hotel pillows!) and they are the best for both your face and hair. They are one of my must have beauty products!  I just got this hair mask and will let you know how I like it after I give it a go.  Please share your favorite Winter Skin Savers in the Comments!

I’m back with this months beauty items that I am using on repeat (see last months list here).  I have been a huge fan of Diptyque for as many years as I can remember.  My current favorite is Olène Eau de Toilette, it makes me happy when I smell it and love spritzing it when I get dressed.  A new discovery is the Guerlain “Midnight Secret’ Late Night Recovery it is one of several Supertips from Guerlain to give overnight results. I want to give the Radiance in a Flash a go. I have been using the Pureology Super Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner since February and love it. It is very concentrated so start with no more than a pea size of conditioner at first so you can see what works best for your hair type. I have really thick, dry hair and that’s all I need.  I only put it on the ends of my hair and never on the roots or it gets to weighed down and greasy.  Not to be missed is Fresh Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment, I am a big fan of the nude but you can chose from other colors or just the clear. What I  do not currently own is the Cle de Peau Beaute Concealer.  It is a best seller and on every must have beauty list.  I think it is time I gave it a try!  What are your favorite beauty products?
