Winter skincare essentials

During the winter, my skin can often become dry and dehydrated, so today I wanted to talk about 2 mulit-purpose products, both of which have really helped to inject some much needed moisture back into my skin:
Organic surge million dollar anywhere balm
 Organic surge million dollar anywhere balm

Starting with the Organic Surge million dollar anywhere balm. This was a lifesaver for my nose, which was left feeling dry and irritated after a winter cold. It comes as a solid balm, but melts on contact with body heat to become a light scented oil.

On application, it immediately soothed my poor irritated nose, and by the end of the next day, the majority of redness was gone. It contains cocoa and shea butter, so is intensively hydrating, yet still feels surprisingly light on my skin. I now use it on any dry patches of skin, and well as on my cuticles. Oh, and did I mention Million dollar anywhere balm smells exactly like a bowl of lemon sherbet!

Lanolips 101 ointment, Lanolips

Another hero product is Lanolips 101 ointment. To me this is like a thicker, better quality version of Vaseline. What sets Lanolips apart though, it that is uses only 100% pure medical grade Lanolin (a waxy substance that comes from sheep's wool).

I would never have thought to use Lanolin as a moisturiser, but after a quick bit of research it seems to be widely used in the cosmetics industry. I'm assured that Lanolips is vegetarian and most importantly animal cruelty free. Since using Lanolips, I've noticed a real difference in the condition of my lips, and I'd go so far as to say this is one of my favourite lipbalms. It also works well as a cuticle balm, as well as on any areas of dry, cracked skin.

Have you tried any either of these 2 products? What are your winter skincare essentials?


  1. I'm really interested in the Organic Surge product. I recently bought loads of their stuff after hearing good things! Anything that's gonna help my dry skin is good for me!

    1. The million dollar anywhere balm is great, would definitely recommend if you've got dry skin, and I think it's worth it for the scent alone x
