WAXELENE Lip Balm, the Petroleum Jelly Alternative – I not only have a review of this scheduled for later today (12/30/14) but I also have a giveaway for this. I have a ton of lip balms that I can recommend to you but Waxelene is different since it’s soothing and healing plus it has so many uses. It’s more than a lip balm, it’s for dry skin, diapers, chapped lips, makeup removal etc. It comes in many sizes including this lip tube. A winner at only $3.99.* GABRIEL RX LIP KIT containing a lip balm and a lip scrub– a review is coming up for this kit soon. It contains a lip scrub to help banish the flakies and make your lips soft and smooth to prepare for lipsticks. It also contains a great lip balm that is great under lipstick.* MIRACLE OF ALOE, MIRACLE FOOT REPAIR – I have a lot of foot creams that I use for softer feet but this is my miracle foot cream. My feet were such a wreck after the harsh water of the hospital and a month without showering that I thought I’d never get them back to normal. I slathered this on twice a day and my feet are so smooth now that it’s hard to believe. I’ve bought it several times and it’s something that’s shared by my family. AVEENO SKIN RELIEF MOISTURE REPAIR – This is a winter savior and it’s fragrance free!! It’s for the dryest of skin which is what happens to mine in the winter. Last winter’s Polar Vortex made me rush out to purchase this. RoC RETINOL CORREXION DEEP WRINKLE DAILY MOISTURIZIER WITH SPF 30 – A long name for an excellent product. It’s not a heavy moisturizer so your skin can breathe easily. The SPF30 is great because it’s broad spectrum.* LAVANILA BODY BUTTER in Fresh Vanilla Lemon – La Vanila makes this in several fragrances so you can pick the one you like best. It contains 100% pure shea & cocoa butters so it’s a great winter protectant. You’ll smell good and you’ll feel soft. Full review (and a giveaway) will be coming up.* BE DELECTABLE HAND CREAM in Lemon + Cream – I love the be Delectable line and can recommend all their products. I chose the Hand Cream today because while I need a hand cream all year, I’m desperate for it in winter. It contains mango butter, shea butter and aloe vera to nourish your hands and cuticles. The smell of the lemon is divine.* NEOVA DNA BARRIER – This is one of my favorite moisturizers for night. I love how this feels on my skin and how my skin looks when I wake up the next morning. It’s rich but doesn’t clog pores, it has no fragrance, it’s soothing and it’s wonderful. I just finished one and I’m ordering another for sure. * SUPERGOOP ANTI-AGING CITY SUNSCREEN SERUM – This turned into my favorite sunscreen. If the product that I’m using for daytime moisturizing doesn’t have sunscreen then it’s Supergoop to the rescue. No fragrance which is important to me. Gentle and non-greasy. It works great with or without makeup. I wrote about it in July and I am writing about it again at the end of December so it’s a love all year round.* ALGENIST ADVANCED ANTI-AGING REPAIRING OIL – I’ve grown to love oil on my face but they aren’t all created equal. This past summer I was testing one by Yes to Blueberries and while the price was right, I finally gave up on it since it was too heavy. An oil needs to be gently absorbed and not sit on top of your skin. Algenist does just that. You can use a few drops or mix it with a serum. Either way it’s protecting my skin this winter and helping with the dehydration that I see.
There are a lot more products that I could have included in this Top Ten list but these are the ones in my current rotation. They are all products I’m thrilled to count as winter saviors. — Marcia
