The Beauty of a Winter Wonderland

A winter wonderland is all around you. I’m talking about mountains covered with snow, frozen lakes, snowmen standing proudly on front lawns all across Bergen County, and – most importantly, perhaps – staring right back at you in the mirror. Yes, you – you are a winter wonderland, especially if you give these cold weather products a try. They’ll keep you hydrated, glowing and rejuvenated, promise. 

Weleda Skin Food Original Ultra Rich Cream

I love to use this during the cold winter months. It is so hydrating and makes a great makeup base (It’s the secret of tons of celebrity makeup artists) and it leaves my skin hydrated all day long. Available at Whole Foods, Closter.

RMS “Un” Cover-Up Concealer

A new favorite line of mine is RMS. I always am searching for a great concealer and I found my go-to! This creamy rich concealer doesn’t crease on me and leaves my under eyes naturally covered. Available at Sephora, Paramus.

NudeStix Nudies Matte Bronzer-Bondi Babe

I never was into cream contour or bronzers until this product. I think this is the perfect shade to give you a really natural contour and bring life to your face. Available at Sephora, Paramus.

Tea Tree Scalp Care Set

In the winter I always get a dry, itchy scalp, which is the worst. This trio has changed that for me. This line contains turmeric, ginseng and other botanicals that promote a healthy scalp. It also helps thicken and grow your hair, and it smells amazing. Available at Beautiful Revenge Salon, Westwood.

Henne Organic Lip Exfoliator Scrub

Wintertime usually means chapped lips for me, but this organic exfoliator gives me gorgeous hydrated smooth lips. I love to exfoliate my lips a few times a week; it makes such a difference. Available at Nordstrom, Paramus.

Chanel Les Beiges Water-Fresh Tint

 I don’t know about you, but in the winter months I am pale. I love to use this as a base before my foundation to give my face a gorgeous sun-kissed glow. It is the perfect primer for the wintertime. Available at Bloomingdales, Hackensack.

Ren Evercalm Ultra Comforting Mask

This is the perfect soothing mask for dry chapped skin. I love to do this mask a couple times a week in the wintertime. It really soothes and calms overly irritated skin, leaving you hydrated and glowing. Available at Sephora, Paramus.

Herbivore Coco Rose Coconut Oil Body Polish

We can’t forget our body during the winter and how dry and dehydrated it can get. I love to use this to exfoliate once a week to get rid of all that dry dull skin. Bonus: it smells like a vacation! Available at Nordstrom, Paramus.

Glowbiotics Probiotic Body Lotion

If you want to really stay hydrated and smell amazing all day, you need this body lotion. Packed with probiotics to strengthen your skin’s ability to renew its natural glow and stimulate the production of collage, the citrus coconut scent is so natural and clean. I just love it. Available at

Lux Unfiltered No. 32 Gradual Self-Tanning Cream

One of my favorite Influencers created this vegan, cruelty-free self-tanner to recreate her “filtered” tan on Instagram in real life. I love how hydrating, natural and easy this self-tanner is to apply, and it smells like roses. Available at
