On to The Big Green Shortlist…!
Banish dry and cracked lips – and leave them feeling kissably soft – with this beautifully rich and moisturising lip butter. The wild rose is rich in linoleic acid, which heals and softens, while the high vitamin C content erases fine lines. We adore the subtle red tint (and scent) of this rose-centric lip balm – perfect pout protection against the elements.
Keep this in the bathroom cabinet for when you feel debilitated and need a stimulating “wake up” bath
If your idea of bliss at the end of a long day is unwinding in a stress-knot melting hot bath, Weleda’s Rosemary Invigorating Bath has your name on the label. Easily one of our winter essentials, it’s brilliant for a long soak, paperback in hand, on a cold and chilly early evening. The heady scent of fresh rosemary invigorates the senses and eases tiredness and it also helps boost the body’s warming system, resisting colds. Bonus!
You might also like…? Weleda’s Lavender Bath, for a pure lavender hit – it works like a natural sleep tonic to soothe frazzled nerves and help you drift off.
Weleda’s Lavender Relaxing Bath Milk is super-comforting and a calming mental tonic if you feel brain frazzled or anxious, too
Brilliant brightening cleanser at a brilliant price – under a tenner
One of our favourite cleansers for squeaky clean skin – and on a budget too – this Jason C Cleanser will leave your face glowing. Rich in Vitamin C, this is perfect for washing away make-up, dirt and impurities. It even dissolves dead skin cells to leave your face looking fresh and revitalised. Thanks to its gentle ingredients, it’s also ideal for even the most sensitive of skins – no drying out found here.
With celebrity fans across the globe, Dr Hauschka’s Rose Day Cream is a cult classic and a much revered beauty editor favourite. And now Dr. Hauschka have launched a new, updated version – Richer in Roses – containing extracts of wild rose hips, rose blossoms and rose wax, as well as rose water and essential oils from Damask roses.
Expect all the nurturing, soothing and protective qualities you get with the classic rose day dream, but with even more love and care. This is not only a timeless beauty hero – it’s a must-have for glowing, “cashmere-cocooned” winter skin. It’s just brilliant for dry, sensitive or tired skin and there’s 7% off at the moment at Big Green Smile.
Perfect for healing those dry and scaly knees, and for making your skin so soft you won’t want to strop stroking yourself, this nourishing milk and body lotion is the perfect treat for your body. The lotion is rich in milk to nourish and care for the skin, while honey softens and aloe vera soothes. Meanwhile, it also happens to smell good enough to eat.
Coconut Foot Cream and a collection of classic Burt’s minis in one fab iconic tin
…and we LOVE Burt’s Bees “Best of Burt” Set, £19.99, a collection of Burt’s beauty heroes to help you sail through winter, all packed into one iconic keepsake tin. Inside you’ll find:
- 1 x Beeswax Lip Balm with Vitamin E & Peppermint (4.25g)
- 1 x Coconut Foot Cream (120g)
- 1 x Almond & Milk Hand Cream (57g)
- 1 x Hand Salve (8.5g)
- 1 x Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream (8.5g)
- All packaged in a gorgeous tin
Hair tends to do the opposite of what you want it to, in winter – wind, rain, temperature extremes…you name it (there’s nothing more annoying for those of us who crave straight, sleek locks but have hair that curls and frizzes at the first hint of rain, never mind a steamy bathroom).
If this product won’t have you singing in the shower, nothing will. YES’s Pampering conditioner will help give less than perfect locks all the natural nourishment they need. Not only will it provide moisture – one of the basic secrets to healthy hair – but it also conditions, softens, smoothes and tames even the most unmanageable tresses. A must-have for these (yes we know they’re coming – argh!) rainy, blustery days…
