Expert Opinion: Top Bloggers’ Winter Beauty Essentials

The sun might be rising a little earlier and staying up a little later, but Spring is still a good few weeks away. We asked some of our favourite local bloggers to give us the lowdown on their top blues-busting, cold weather beauty essentials…


“My current favorite product is the LUSH Comforter Bubble Bar (R54.50, Lush). There’s nothing better than a fluffy hot bubble bath on a cold night, surrounded by the rich scent of berries. Its perfection!” - Tyler Leigh,


“My current Winter staple is Nuxe Reve de Miel lip balm (R130, Truworths) - a treat for dry or chapped lips. I also love Balm Balm Frankincense Cleansing Balm (R150, selected health shops), and the new REN Centifolia Hot Cloth Cleanser (R240, Woolworths) - a nourishing and relaxing makeup remover.
For dry skin, a mask like the Body Shop Vitamin E Sink-in Moisture Mask (R155, The Body Shop) can make an instant difference, or leave it on overnight. For dry hands and cuticles, I always opt for Clinique Deep Comfort Hand and Cuticle Cream (R265, Edgars) for a very moisturising yet non-sticky quick fix.” - Bronwyn Hoedemaker,


“Winter means dry hands - and that's one thing that I absolutely hate! It's extremely important to regularly apply a hardworking moisturiser to keep skin soft and healthy throughout the colder season. I love Sorbet Hydrating Hand & Nail Cream (R30, Sorbet) because it nourishes and protects the skin - and it’s budget-friendly.” - Lynne Blewett,


“One of my favourite Winter treats is a regular VO5 Hot Oil Treatment (R45.99, leading pharmacies). It not only helps to create a protective layer that seals off my hair and prevents any further moisture loss, it also leaves hair feeling soft and looking super glossy, and the fact that it’s heated is an added bonus on a cold wintry day.”- Mariaan Enslin,
