Blogmas # 4 – Winter Favourites

I really love reading other people’s favourites so I thought I would put together a list of my November/winter favourites for this year.

Elisabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream: This is one of my favourite products all year round but especially in the winter. I have the tube version, which I carry with me wherever I go, and the tin, which I keep in my desk drawer at work. It is the best lip balm/moisturiser I have ever used and it stays on your lips for so long.

No7 Moisture Mask: My skin has got more dry over the past few months and now that the weather is colder it has become even more so in places. This mask really makes my skin feel nourished and moisturised. I tend to use it once a week, usually on a sunday, and I can see a difference in my skin straight away.

E45 Cream: Again, another product for dry skin but at this time of year, especially this year, my skin does get really dry. I have had a couple of eczema type patches this year and this has cleared it up in no time.

New Look Burgundy Corduroy Dress: Every since I bought this in late September it has been one of my most worn pieces. I love to style it with tights, a black polo neck/long sleeve top and black boots.

Yankee Candle Sparkling Cinnamon: I always love cinnamon scented candles in the winter, but this one by Yankee Candle has a strong scent, without being overwhelming. I bought it last year but it is still going strong!

Hot Spiced Apple drink from Costa: As with every year, the Costa Hot Spiced Apple drink is one of my favourites. It tastes a bit like mulled cider but more sweet, and as soon as it is released I start to feel a lot more festive.

Mac Lipstick in Russian Red: Once the festive season starts, I love to bring out my red lipstick again and this one is my favourite. It is a matte finish and is really pigmented. It can dry out your lips if you wear it all day, so I tend to use my Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream underneath to prevent this!

What are some of your winter favourites? Let me know in the comments or tweet me @placesserenity!
