Winter Favorites

Winter dry skincare moisturizers creams lip balms beeswax salve favorites must-haves
1.  EOS Summer Fruit Lip Balm: 95% organic, 100% natural, and paraben and petrolatum free.  Has a fruity-sweet taste and smell.  Scores high on the cuteness factor and is great to carry around in the pocket/bag. About $3 at Walmart.
2.  Bubble Farm Soap Co. Soothing Beeswax Salve (Unscented):  Has an extremely short ingredients list - Olive oil, beeswax, and organic Calendula officinalis flower extract.  Is a solid balm but scoops out easily with finger pressure.  Melts into the skin with massaging though it takes a bit of time for the greasiness to absorb completely.  Perfect if you want something more heavy duty for hands, feet, elbows.  I picked this up from Whole Foods for $10, but this is available online from the Bubble Farm Soap Co. Store and shipping is FREE on everything.
3.  Nivea Creme:  This is a winter must-have for my dry skin.  It's a bit difficult to work into the skin and can be a bit too greasy, so using this as an all-over body cream is reserved for days when I have loads of time and an awful lot of patience, but it does leave my skin feeling "nourished."  I mostly use this as a night-time foot moisturizer.  Easily available almost everywhere and costs about $6 (saw a whole lot of these in the  clearance section at my local Target for around $3).
4.  Dior Crème Abricot Fortifying Cream For Nails (review HERE):  My absolute must-have any time of the year and even more so in the winters.  This is a sticky greasy cream that's best used at betdtime once I am with all my work for the day, but it's amazing how it repairs sad-looking cuticles almost overnight.  Expensive at $27, but a little goes a long way with this cream and I usually stock up during sales :D
