Over here on the East Coast temps are reaching record lows and our thermostats are working over time! All that freezing wind and forced hot air can reek havoc on your skin, lips and even hair unless you do something about it. I’ve narrowed it down to a few core, easy to find products, everyone should have ready to use. They also happen to be super cheap!
Vaseline’s new rosy lip tub is super micro, meaning it can fit in a small cross-body bag or clutch. The tint makes your lips look vibrant and healthy, while the light rose scent reminds you of a warmer time. Plus, you have all the moisturizing benefits of classic Vaseline.

The beauty market seems to be inundated with BB creams, and while there are plenty to sift through, I still find Garnier’s to be the best value. Offered in a variety of shades and specialty formulas, this BB cream protects skin from damaging rays while also maintaining a dewy glow.

Like your skin, your hair needs extra moisture in the colder months as well, and sometimes conditioner just doesn’t do the trick. That’s why I’ve been using Pantene’s Repair and Protect Overnight Miracle Serum. Just like your favorite lotion, you smooth on the serum before bed on wet or dry hair. In the morning your follicles will be soft and manageable without the greasiness you get with some other products.
Only $8.99 at Walgreens
This non-irritating cleanser helps retain moisture without sacrificing that fresh feeling. Originally created for dermatologists, this formula is mild enough for even the most sensitive skin. Plus, it can also be used as a hand and body cleanser.
