Buh-bye Winter Skin: Cruelty Free Moisture Essentials

Buh-bye Winter Skin: Cruelty Free Moisture Essentials

The winter weather can seriously wreak havoc on your skin. From head to toe, you’ll need an arsenal of moisturizing power to get your skin through to the Spring. Since I’m living on the East Coast (which has been getting walloped by winter fury), I’ve searched high and low for a power-packed cruelty free moisturizing regimen that leaves me soft and NOT greasy. 

Some of these were already personal favorites of mine brandwise. Both Derma E‘s Hyaluronic Acid line and Mineral Fusion‘s nail lacquer and Moisture Cleanser already had my heart, but what about your beautiful bod? A lot of the time I always think of moisture for my face. I forget that my body needs some pillowy soft moisture love, too! Make your list, check it twice, and make sure to add these babies to your beauty counter. 

I’m a Pacifica Devotee (I’ll be hosting a giveaway on my home-blog, Curls.nu, soon), so it was no surprise that their hand cream would become another favorite for my home and classroom. Their Island Vanilla hand cream is rich and velvety and smells like an ice cream parlor. Sweet treats without the guilt are my personal favorites. This lotion packs hydrating coconut oil along with their vanilla scent and absorbs quickly. I use this multiple times throughout my day and my skin and cuticles are looking amazing! 

My husband will tell you that I fall for marketing terms and he’s right (I can admit it), because I LOVE anything with “butter” in it. Lip butter, body butter, hand butter, butter cookies (hehe), you name it. Part of that love hooked me on Flo & Theo’s lemon orchard body butter, but that’s not all. I live for this body butter and use it as an after-shave balm all winter long. Flo & Theo offer’s the triple threat of Cocoa, Shea, and Coconut Oil and essential oils that perk up my senses. If you’re not rubbing this all over yourself after your shower, you’re not living!

But what about at night? Nighttime is my favorite time to amp up my moisture routine because I can lather myself up when I’m sleeping. This brings me to my final moisture treat for your skin: CARU Rose Facial Serum. I love the scent of this serum and how it feels when you use it. A few drops are enough to cover your face and neck. All of the essential oils are natural and cruelty free and provide nourishment for your skin! What are you using this winter to stay soft?
