Winter Skin Woes

3 Jan

By Whitney

And….we’re back.  We apologize for going MIA but we needed some R&R and probably still do.  We hope everyone is excited for 2013!  Both Lauren and I have agreed that one of our resolutions is to make PP the best we can so look forward to some upcoming changes this year!!!

The past few mornings in NYC have been brutally cold and my skin is letting me know just how unhappy it is.   I’ve been looking for more than just your regular hand or face creme because the basic stuff seems to not be working and have the following products to recommend to those who also have flaky skin issues these days.


julep stick

When lotion just isn’t enough, I throw this “hand chapstick” in my purse and it really does help.  I had never heard of it before but I got a monthly nailpolish sampler and this came with it and I love.  It does not leave any sort of greasy residue and it fixes dryness pretty much immediately.

Hand and Cuticle Stick – $22


Aquaphor Lip Repair

There is nothing better than Aquaphor for your chapped lips.  It stays on forever and it really does work.   The new lip specific version is just as great as the original and a whole lot easier to apply.

Aquaphor Lip Repair – $4

Avene Cold Creme Lip Balm

I got sucked into this product because I loved it’s clean packaging but this stuff is soft and creamy and a tiny bit heavenly.

Avene Cold Cream Lip Balm – $12


Egyptian Magic

This stuff works on pretty much everything and has been around for a really long time.  Dry face?  Try just a smidge before putting on your foundation.   Scaly legs?  Put this on before bed.

Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Creme – $24

Kiehls Cross Terrain

I’ll be packing this anytime I’m headed skiing and making my boyfriend put it on his face too.  Products that are cross gender always are a plus in my book.

Kiehls Cross Terrain Face Protector SPF 50 – $26

Aveeno Ultra Calming Moisturizer

Budget friendly and easy to get at the drugstore aroundthe corner, Aveeno is one of my favorites because it doesn’t smell like a florist and I can reapply throughout the day without looking greasy.

Aveeno Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 – $15
