Why, hello! As you can see from the title, these are my top five winter must haves! I'm in love with these products, but I love them even more in the winter. These are in no particular order. As a side note, I've kind of been obsessed with Bath & Body Works these last few months, so that's why I have included so many of their products. Let's get started!
For my first must have, I chose the Black Tie 3-Wick Candle from Bath & Body Works. This candle is awesome. If you are familiar with their candle scents, then I would compare this to Mahogany Teakwood or Flannel. If you're not familiar then the only true description I can give is a man's cologne. It smells very musky and so good!
Second up is this Moisturizing Cream from Cetaphil. You can get this at just about every drugstore out there. I have very oily skin, so this bad boy is reserved just for the winter months and only before bed or days that I'm not wearing makeup, otherwise my makeup just slides off after a couple of hours. This is super hydrating and for that reason, I don't skimp when putting it on. My face feels so go in the morning and there is less stinging from daily products because my face is actually hydrated. I also found out, quite by accident, that this is an awesome lotion for dry legs. I went home from college for Thanksgiving and forgot to bring a body lotion so I reached for this instead and my legs felt awesome!
I'm sure a lot of people know about this by now, but it is my holy grail. I have had my Clarisonic Plus for quite a few years and I just love it. They have different models that are cheaper, and I do believe I got this particular one on sale from QVC. The Clarisonic is even more beneficial in winter months to exfoliate your face and remove any dead and flaky skin. This is a must!
If you haven't gotten in to smell Forever Midnight from Bath & Body Works yet, DO IT! It is so good. To me it smells like a musky vanilla. They have lotions and an actual perfume in this scent as well, but the fragrance mist was perfect for me. The musky-ness of this makes it feel like a fall/winter scent plus you can't go wrong with vanilla.
Lastly is this Merry Marshmallow Kiss from Bath & Body Works' Holiday Signature Collection. I'm not going to lie, I bought this because it reminds me of something. I still can't place it, but one of these days it's going to hit me. I really do like this though, and it does not smell like marshmallows, but it's just one of those things to put you into a Christmasy/wintery mood. I will also be getting Winter Candy Apple, Twisted Peppermint, and Vanilla Bean Noel, but I live in a tiny little town where I am currently attending college, and haven't been able to pick them up yet. I really recommend these scents, even as gifts for the holidays!
On a side personal note, I am just getting started into the whole blogging thing. I love anything beauty, craft, and makeup related, and hope to post about some of those things on here. I would love to know what you as a reader would like to see from me, just to get a feel in just what kind of direction to take this in. Also, please let me know if you liked this post! It was so much fun, and I can't wait to post more!
Thank you so much for reading!
