I know I know the last thing we ALL need is another influencer sharing their skincare routine…but here I am with a long list of all my favorite winter beauty products. I was inspired to write this post because they ALL really work and although the majority are on the higher pricepoint side, they are all apart of some kind of sale/promotion/gift set right now.

FIRST AID BEAUTY, Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration | This cream is THICK and RICH. My skin has been so dry and this fast-absorbing, moisturizer provides instant and long-term hydration. If you are going to buy add anything into your winter beauty regimen make it this cream

ISLE OF PARADISE, Self Tanning Drops | Add these drops to the FAB Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration and you are good to glow!

Isle of Paradise Tanning drops and FAB moisturizer

MARIO BADESCU, Drying Lotion | This award-winning solution helps dry up surface blemishes. I snagged it when I was traveling and suffering from a MAJOR breakout and let me tell you the results are INSTANT and this purchase is necessary

quip, Metal Electric Toothbrush | I polled my Instagram followers for the best travel toothbrush and this was by far the top pick. I’ve had this toothbrush for about a month and I absolutely adore it.

KOSAS, Tinted Face Oil Foundation | My skin is THIRSTY and this hydrating formula is honestly all I can wear right now. I apply it with my fingers and my skin has NEVER looked better. Winter beauty is ALL about hydration and this is by far the best foundation product out there for that 

GLOW RECIPE, Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask and Avocado Melt Retinol Sleeping Face Mask | I can’ stop with either of these masks. My nighttime skincare routine is killing it right now and these two sleeping masks are staring in it |

LANEIGE, Lip Glowy Balm | I am the chapped lip queen and honestly, this is the ONLY product works for me. My lips are CONSTANTLY peeling and falling (not cute) the solve -> one of these in every single one of my handbags.

Goop, Enriching Face Oil | Gwyneth Paltrow knows what’s up. I’ve been to her Goop holiday pop-up in San Francisco two years in a row and EVERYTHING she has suggested has been AMAZING (and expensive). Use daily, either alone or in combination with moisturizer. To layer, apply face oil first and allow to absorb; then follow with Revitalizing Day Moisturizer or Replenishing Night Cream. For extra goop Glow, warm several drops of oil between palms, then pat on top of moisturizer or makeup.

FARMACY, Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm | The holiday parties are here and happening and that means that we are piling on the makeup. Name something worse than coming home from a holiday party, your feet are KILLING you and you have to remove a FULL face of makeup. This product is the solution, my friends. A little goes a long way and you will go to bed fresh-faced and fabulous! 25% off EVERYTHING at FARMACY BEAUTY

Winter Beauty, Olaplex Set, Olaplex, Sephora, Nordstrom

OLAPLEX | the holiday hair fix set from above that I have been pushing since it launched is sold out (right now), but I still HIGHLY recommend every OLAPLEX product out there. I love these products SO much that I wrote an entire blog post about how they saved my hair

Aquis, Rapid-Dry Hair Turban | if you watch my Instagram stories than you know that I can NOT live without this hair turban. This magical hair towel is made with exclusive, ultra-lightweight AQUITEX® technology to rapidly dry hair to a damp state with LESS heat and without DAMAGING your hair. It cuts drying time by half while leaving you hands-free, it controls frizz and breakage and your hair holds styles better and looks shinier. If you are looking for a gift for LITERALLY anyone with hair, this is it! | shop my limited edition POOSH leopard turban here | 25% off at Nordstrom

Cuyana, Leather Travel Case Set | This pebbled leather case set is another amazing gift idea. Unzip the large case to stow all your travel-sized toiletries. Save the small case for make-up, jewelry or any other small necessities. While this set is always ready to travel, it’s just as useful and beautiful in your home bathroom, bedroom or office.


  1. Love Mario Badescu products especially the drying lotion. Dying to try glow recipe avocado products

  2. Aquaphor ointment on everything but especially under eyes and nose before bed. Kopari “save face” oil. Charlotte Tillbury Magic Cream (cheapest price is on Net-a-porter).

  3. Started using olaplex and it’s a game changer!! Still dying to try the Kodak stuff!

  4. Using Olaplex because I was fully #influenced by you and I’m obsessed my hair has never been in such good conditioned !

  5. Okay is it weird to say straight up coconut oil? I feel like it gives me extra moisturized skin when I double cleanse with it and I use it as body moisturizer. For hair, Olaplex hands down!

  6. I am living for the Colleen Rothschild cleansing balm. Gets all my makeup off with out drying out my skin.

  7. I love all olaplex products and the new number 6 oil! I’ve been needing a new everyday moisturizer and may need to try the self tanning drops with the ultra repair creme! Looking extra pasty in the frozen north that is NYC

  8. I love formula18 hair products. They really help my dry, damaged, overworked hair.
    And I love anything from Farmacy! All of it! They have a healing salve that I use for everything from papercuts to scraped knees.

  9. Love the drying lotion! When my skin is super-dry in winter, plain old CeraVe lotion works wonders! Also, Glossier balm dotcom all the time 😉

  10. LOVE Olaplex! I’ve been wanting to try many of these products, but just haven’t gotten around to it yet. However, this post has motivated me to “treat yo self” this holiday season!

  11. Needed the Farmacy Green Clean last night… definitely came home from my holiday party with a full face of makeup and did the ultimate no no. Slept in it ??‍♀️

  12. Olaplex has definitely saved my hair this winter! You’re a lifesaver for telling us about the holiday set ?

  13. The east coast winter weather is beating up my skin. First aid beauty and laneige products are a must!

  14. ole henriksen phat glow facial. Gives my skin such a pretty glow… much needed in the wintertime!

  15. Lots of amazing goodies on this list!!!! Cuyana travel set had been a hard YES for gifts to clients, friends, soon to be mommies and a treat to self moment! AND the staff at the Palo Alto store has ran my purchase of to my car for me a few times while the baby is asleep!

  16. Kat your skin always looks looks so amazing!! I am definitely looking for some skinspiration this cold weather season! Thank you for the advice 🙂 🙂
