Our Winter Beauty Essentials

When winter strikes, you bring in the heavy hitters: cableknit sweaters, cashmere mittens, shearling boots. Doing this for your wardrobe is a no-brainer, but it’s also worth doing for it for your skin, hair, and nails. Below, we’ve shared a few of our team’s beauty essentials—the ones that get called up to the big leagues when the temperature starts to drop.

Rita, Media Coordinator
FAB Beauty Facial Radiance Pads – “These work wonders for brightening dull, winter skin.”
Josie Maran 100 percent Pure Argan Oil – “Argan Oil is one of those multi-use lifesaver products. For when you need something even more potent than coconut oil, you can use it as a hair oil, face oil or nail oil. Bye bye dry.”

Steph, Director of Stores
davines NOUNOU Conditioner – “This conditioner is worth every penny. It nourishes my hair and leaves the ends feeling strong and shiny. A little bit goes a long way, so it lasts for months.”
Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate – “I used this every night before bed last winter, and woke up with bright and soft skin. The lavender scent also made for a nice bedtime ritual.”

Alex, Content Lead
Avène Skin Recovery Cream in Riche – “Nothing gets rid of dry, flaky skin like this. Plus, I love that I can get it at the drugstore down the street.”
Clarins Replenishing Lip Balm – “My mom introduced this to me—it’s so moisturizing. I put this on before bed and I can still rub my lips together when I wake up.”

Sara, CEO 
RMS Lip Shine in Honest – “As the weather gets colder I’m more concerned with hydrating my skin, I’m currently loving this lip shine. It’s a peachy nude colour that’s super nourishing, which is hard to find.”

Simone, Director of Customer Experience
Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil – “This makes my hair feel so soft, and saves it from breaking during the dry, cold months.”
CLINIQUE Redness Solutions Daily Relief Cream – “Instantly calms my skin, and makes it feel like new after a day out in the cold.”
