winter favourites

One of the few things I don't love about New York in winter is what it does to my skin! My face and hair are drier than usual and I have had to completely substitute evening moisturiser with face oil to keep my skin hydrated. One of the things I have loved doing though is buying new skin care and cosmetics over here (Nars and Bobbi Brown are so much cheaper than back home!) as well as picking up some great drugstore products. These are a few of my favourites at the moment, I'd love to hear some of your recommendations.

Face: Aesop Fabulous Face Cleanser, Camellia Nut Facial Hydrating Cream and Purifying Facial Exfoliant Paste. Kosmea Organic Rose Hip Oil and Hydrating Rosewater Mist. Bobbi Brown BB Cream SPF 35.

Body: Grown Body Exfoliant Reviving Pearl, Peppermint Ylang Ylang and Body Cream Intensive: Rosa Damascena, Acai & Pomegranate. Kiehl's Crème de Corps. C.O. Bigelow Rose Salve and Perfumer Body Cleanser Coconut.

Fragrance: Byredo Bal D'Afrique has been my signature scent since Paris, I'm also testing Blanche and Gypsy Water at the moment as an option for Summer. Curio Noir candle in Black Spice, really missing my candles!


  1. Avene Trixera cream is wonderful for dry skin, as is the body shop's vitamin e mask.

  2. These products look so good and as all people say, they are good, indeed. I wish Greece had them!


  3. I really like Josie Maran's Argan Oil and Moroccan Oil- both do wonders for dry hair.

    I also like Embryolisse Concentrated Lait Cream for winter. My dermatologist has also told me that humidifiers do wonders for combating dry NYC winters.

  4. T i can pick you up some embryolisse from paris if you want! just say the word x
