Day 7 of #BLOGMAS :: Winter SkinCare Routine Products / Mainly Marta :: A Motherhood + Lifestyle Blog



What started as a digital diary to document a newfound journey as a stay at home mom / wife has quickly evolved into my own little corner on the internet where I share all that life brings my way -- the good, the bad, and those "aha!" moments. All with a hint of sarcasm, a dash of truth and bold European wit. Thanks for following along!

Day 7 of #BLOGMAS :: Winter SkinCare Routine Products

It's day seven of #blogmas and I can't believe we made it thus far already. Today I thought I'd share some of my favorite self care products that I use in the winter because let's be honest -- winter can be brutal on our skin, lips and hair. Here are some of the products that I cannot live without when it becomes a winter wonderland outside.

These are my favorite lip products because they really help your lips stay moisturized throughout the winter. I know that most of these products are drug store products, and that makes me love them that much more -- they're super affordable and work better than most high end brands.

  1. Nivea Lip Butter
  2. Soft Lips
  3. Herbivore Lip Butter
  4. Caramex
  5. Fresh Sugar Advanced Lip Therapy 
  6. Blistex Medicated Lip Ointment 
  7. Hanalei Sugar Lip Scrub
  8. Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm
  9. Smith's Rose Bud Salve 

These skin products are my go to during the winter season. I tend to have normal skin which means I get my fair share of oily and dry patches and that can make skin care kind of difficult because I never know what I'm tackling until I got sit at my makeup desk and analyze my face / skin. During the winter, I really focus on hydrating and moisturizing my skin because the cold Pacific Northwest air tends to make it tight and dryer than usual.  
  1. Jergens Hydrating Coconut 
  2. Origins United State Toner 
  3. Vitamin E Skin Oil (also great to grow out your eyelashes
  4. Mario Badescu Rose Water Facial Mist
  5. Nivea Original Creme -- I love having this little container in my purse! 
  6. Dr. Brant Micro Dermabrasion Age Defying Exfoliator 
  7. FARMACY Deep Moisture Sheet Face Mask
  8. Cetaphil Daily Moisturizer 
NOTE :: I didn't include a face wash because I like to switch and alternate between a few of them depending on how oily or dry my skin is.

When it comes to hair, my hair is rather wavy and is prone to frizz. I also am recovering from postpartum hair loss while pregnant with baby number two which means I have crazy baby hairs growing on all side of my head -- making having a cute hair day nearly impossible. Add harsh, cold winter weather to that and it's a hot frizzy mess. These products are my go-tos during this extremely pressing time for the hairs on my head.
  1. Tresemme Heat Tamer 
  2. Kristin Ess Volumizing Mousse
  3. Moroccan Oil Hydrating Shampoo
  4. Aussie Mega Hairspray  (I like number one because it does the job without make your hair crunchy.)
  5. Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo
  6. Briogeo Don't Despair, Repair! Hair Mask
  7. Kristin Ess Thickening Spray 
  8. OGX Coconut Milk Shampoo
So there you have it -- my winter skincare / self care routine products. I highly recommend all these products as I am using them on the regular this chilly winter season. What are some of your favorite winter products, let me know in the comments!
