Two MUST-HAVE winter skin savers

After six whole months of warm and sunny weather, the cold is finally beginning to settle in. As much as I love bundling up in cute and comfy warm clothes, I hate it when my skin gets chapped by the cold.

Lately, I have stumbled upon two items that have already COMPLETELY changed my life. I no longer have to worry about getting dry skin or flaky, chapped lips. These two items have worked magic on me, and so I wanted to share my thoughts with you!

A while back, I received a travel-sized tube of the cult-favorite First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream. I loved it so much that I decided to purchased a full-sized jar. I cannot say enough good things about this cream! Since I use a walker and my hands are constantly at work, I slather this stuff on them every night before bed. It keeps my hands really soft and free of dry, cracked skin.

The formula is so amazing; it’s a rich cream without being too heavy, and it’s not the least bit greasy. No need to worry about a funky smell; this stuff is fragrance free. I even apply a small amount if I have any dry patches on my face; it doesn’t break me out! The Ultra Repair Cream is just an all-around winner. I love how it’s just a simple but effective product with no fancy, unneeded bells and whistles.

To me, it is vital to have a nice lip balm on hand, especially during the cold seasons. The skin on our lips is so thin that it can get chapped very easily. The classic Carmex Lip Balm used to be the only product that would really and truly un-chap my lips…UNTIL I came upon this little gem.

Y’ALL. I’m just going to say it. Buy Nuxe Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm right this minute. It is unlike any lip balm I have ever tried…really! Everything about it is so luxurious and unique!

Most lip balms tend to have a thin, petroleum-based texture. This isn’t always a bad thing, but when you have chapped lips, you need to have something a little more dense to fix the problem. This is what is so wonderful about the Nuxe lip balm. Instead of having a lightweight texture, this French-made item is thick with Shea Butter and natural plant oils while being a bit mattifying (not glossy). The formula really grips to your lips; it even lasts through a light snack or drink!

A delightful bonus about this balm is the light and delicate orange scent. I love it! Nuxe Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm can be found on the Ulta website. $15 may seem a little much to spend on lip balm, but I think it it TOTALLY worth it. I’ve never tried anything like it.

Plus, you can most of the time lower the price slightly with an Ulta coupon. I saved about three dollars with this purchase, and even scored a free gift from Nuxe.

These two items will truly be life savers during the cold months. Although they cannot be found at the drugstore and just a tad bit pricey, they are worth every penny. They are both unique and come with generous amounts of product. Both items will probably last me three to four months. Not bad!

I have been thoroughly impressed by these body and lip care items, and hope you will love them as much as I do!
