Jun 26, 2019, Author: Bianca Spinner

To get you through the cold, dreary months looking and feeling fabulous, our beauty editor Bianca has put together her favourite winter beauty products to keep your skin and hair hydrated while evoking a warm, cosy feeling. 

Featured image: Who needs ice-cold body butter when you have a Soy Body Butter Candle (R250)? This one from The French Lemon is 100% vegan and animal-friendly, not to mention richly scented and luxurious. We also love that the mom-and-daughter-run company is named after their French bulldog, Ian!


Say bye-bye to dry, cracked lips with Nuxe Rêve de Miel Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm (R205). For an intensive repairing effect, apply a thick layer to your lips and contour area before bed. 

Look as if you’ve just walked off the beach with a sun-kissed glow with the super-soft Essence Hey Cheeks Blush, Bronzer & Highlighter Palette (R129.95) or Baked Multi-Colour Highlighter (R79.95). 

Lusting after a true multi-purpose product? Try CATRICE Hydrating Prime & Care Spray (R99.95). PS: it’s vegan! 


Shower to Shower Deodorant (R24.99) is totally obsession-worthy because it contains Soothex®, an ingredient specifically formulated for sensitive skin. 

Sexy Socks (R199) adds a conscience to your fashion – they’re 100% bamboo and an integral part of everyone’s winter wardrobe! 

Some of us might not shave or wax our legs in winter (you’re forgiven!), but those who do need FINO Soothe Woman (R69.95) to prevent ingrown hairs and keep their skin silky-smooth.


Velvet – . Nourished skin – tick! SKNmasque and SKNLOGIC SKNmasque hydrate (R133 each) are both infused with fig extract for strong hydration. 

The only skin serum you’ll need this winter is Boost! Energise (R529), a vitality-boosting serum rich in vitamin B3. 

Skin Creamery Everyday Cream (R350) is light enough to use on your face, and rich enough to use all over your body.
