It’s been awhile since we’ve shared our fave beauty products with you, and given the current schizophrenic state of the weather on the East Coast (Polar vortex! Early spring! Deep freeze! Torrential Rain!), we thought it was time to give you guys a peek inside our winter 2019 medicine cabinets. Because honestly, we really need to support each other in the quest for glowing skin, right? Follow along for the products we’re committed to using until we’re 100% sure Punxsutawney Phil wasn’t full of shit.

Noto Botanics Deep Serum
I’ll admit I had never heard of Noto Botanics before we featured its creator, Gloria Noto, but let me tell you something: OMG. I actually feel bad singling out this one serum because I have the whole line and I’m unhealthily obsessed with it. But if I had to Sophie’s Choice it, this serum, which smells like oranges and heaven, is the clear winner. It hydrates, softens and makes you glow like you’re made out of something radioactive, but in a good way. And if you’re up for a multi-purchase, may we suggest the Resurface Scrub and the Moisture Riser Cream to round out your routine.
Mara Beauty Universal Face Oil + Algae Retinol Oil
Another entry from a TS7 alum, Allison McNamara, this dynamic duo will whip your winter skin into shape so fast you won’t have time to miss your wrinkles. Use the Retinol Oil at night to banish pores and wrinkles and the Universal Oil daily to hydrate, plump and glow and over the Retinol at night to lock in all that goodness.
Tatcha Beauty Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil
I talk about this all the time, and I swear to you, I will never stop. The perfect facial cleanser that doesn’t strip or dry out your skin but removes every single of trace the day. It’s a desert island staple for sure.
Augustinus Bader The Rich Cream
This cream comes in two versions, the rich and the regular cream, but for winter I love the heavier version. My only complaint is that you’re meant to use it with no other serums, so I don't get to dip into my treasure chest of products when I use it, but it really is kind of a miracle cream.
Glossier Body Hero Daily Oil Body Wash
The Razzles of skincare: first it’s an oil, then it’s a body wash, and overall it’s awesome. It also smells so good you’ll want to eat it.
Skintegrity Impeccable Skin Mineral Matte Tinted Coverage SPF 30
This is my secret weapon, all day, every day. It literally makes your skin glow, appear to have zero lines or pores, protects with 15% non-nano zinc (that basically means it won’t get absorbed into your bloodstream, which is a good thing) AND it blocks the blue light coming off your electronics, which, it turns out, can be super harmful to your skin.
La Prairie Skin Caviar Concealer + Foundation, SPF 15
Obviously I’m a fan of things that multitask, and this foundation / concealer combo is up there with the best. It’s pricey for sure, but LP is totally worth it. The foundation is chock full o the brand’s secret sauce (caviar, obv) and the concealer (built into the foundation top) is creamy and not cakey (hallelujah!).
Hourglass No 28 Lip Treatment Oil in Cameo
If you’ve ever used Hourglass’ lip treatment oil, then you know. If you haven’t, then you’re welcome. This is the only lip treatment I’ve ever found that actually works — maybe it’s the 24K gold plated applicator or the 28 beneficial ingredients, but whatever it is, it does the job for real.But here’s the hook: it’s now available in 5 gorgeous, glossy shades. My fave is cameo which makes your lips look like your lips, but better.
