My Skincare Routine for Winter Months

I know Spring is only a couple days away but I'm still treating my skin like its winter. These products have kept my face hydrated and have been my go to's this season. 





This is my all time favorite cream face wash. I'm a beauty junkie and love trying new products but I've been using this religiously for over a year now. It has a nice refreshing scent that isn't too overpowering. It doesn't strip your skin but still leaves it clean and its non-toxic! 


The first time I heard of oils I automatically thought they would cause me to break out. Well, they happen to have the opposite effect. I use Beautycounter's  Lustro Oil 3 before I apply my moisturizer, 3 times a week. I now rotate it with Josie Maran's Argan Oil light. The Lustro oil has a ylang ylang and wild chamomile scent so it can also be used as a perfume. The Josie Maran does not have a scent. Both are friendly for our bodies which is a plus! 


I have this bad habit of rubbing my eyes in the morning, pulling at my skin. So between my tanning bed teen years and my rubbing, I have wrinkles I don't like. I haven't found an eye cream that works miracles yet but I recently started using this MB one. I only use it every other day and at night because it's a little greasy. I notice my circles aren't as dark as they've been so I'm going to continue to use and see how it goes. This isn't like a glycolic peel, you leave this on. 


This is a lightweight moisturizer that fights aging. I use this daily and have noticed a huge difference in my skin. It's not oily and absorbs quickly if you're in a rush to put on makeup. A little goes a long way! 

The Multi-tasker: Skinny Coconut Oil

This is my favorite coconut oil because it doesn't have a strong scent. So I don't walk around smelling like a PiƱa Colada. You can order a set of 3 of these smaller sizes which I keep in my purse as well. I use this as a moisturizer, lip balm, eye make up remover, cuticle smoother, hand cream, swish in your mouth for whiter teeth (I'll post about this later) and the list goes on. While you're at it add a tablespoon to your coffee for more health benefits.  This is a solid but it melts as soon as it warms up. They also have a body butter as well which I haven't tried because I haven't needed it. 


This night cream makes my skin so soft and it smells good too. A family owned business. They carry a whole line of safe products from dish soap to baby products. I use many of them and have enjoyed them all! 

Moisturizing Face mask: Beautycounter's cleansing balm 

This is a cleansing balm but also a dry skin saver. I use this as a mask when my skin feels really dehydrated. I'll put on at night and wake up with the softest skin ever. I use on my kids eczema patches as well. 


I signed up for Honest Company's subscription and had to pick items to fill my order. I had no idea they carried lip balm. It comes in a trio pack too!  So of course I ordered that because beauty products are so much more fun then cleaning products. Chapped lips are everywhere in my house and I feel safe using this for the kids considering they practically eat it when applying it. It doesn't leave that nasty taste in your mouth either that other lip balms can do. 

Would love to hear some of your favorite beauty products!
