Happy Friday everyone! Now that the cold winter months are here (or have been for months in Chicago), I wanted to share a few of my favorite moisturizers, lotions and butters to get through the dry weather. I have extremely dry skin and these have helped immensely, but I do still think these would work for all my oily skin people out there. Let me know in the comments below if you’ve tried any of these or if you have other recommendations!
Clinique Moisture Surge– This is my go-to every day moisturizer. I love applying this directly after getting out of the shower because it has a thin, but wet consistency. My husband Chris loves it too. It’s unscented and dries very quickly without a greasy feeling.
Windrift Hill Body Butter– This is one of two body butters I reach for especially before bed. I actually picked this up at a boutique in Michigan over the summer and I fell in love with it. I was thrilled to see that the shop is selling on Amazon. It has a whipped consistency and is very light on the skin. The scent smells very baby-powdery, but not overwhelming.
First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream-My most recent purchase of all of these! I tried this out while shopping at Sephora and OMG it’s AMAZING. This is the most perfect moisturizer if you’re like me and have very dry skin. It’s watery and light and scentless. It’s definitely a game changer for me.
Sleepy Body Lotion by Lush– I originally read the reviews about this lotion awhile back and everyone claimed that it actually did make them sleep faster and better overall. So naturally, I was curious. I picked up a small sample from Lush and became obsessed. It smells like almonds, lavender and a hint of baby powder. It’s very soothing. I will say that it’s a tad bit heavy so don’t get carried away with the application unless that’s your jam.
Brazilian Bum Bum Cream by Sol de Janeiro– OMG this! Hands down, the Brazilian Bum Bum Cream is on of my favorite scents of all time. I want everything in life to smell like this! It’s like a tropical vacation in a bottle. Not only is the scent amazing, but it’s super moisturizing as well. Highly recommend because I have yet to be disappointed from this brand in general!
