Under £10 Winter Beauty Saviours

I can’t possibly be the only one who suffers from dry skin, dry hair and pretty much dry anything else when winter hits. Admittedly, it is not even THAT cold out yet but my mama has always reminded me “better safe than sorry”, so as soon as the temperature hit the lower teens, my routines had to be adapted to include thicker and heavier duty products, aka my winter saviours. Without these little babies I don’t know what I would do! Keep reading…

Body Care

Palmers lotion + coconut oil= match made in heaven! Made with a high concentration of natural ingredients, this aims to provide up to 24 hours moisture and whilst I haven’t worn this for that long, it really does make my skin look instantly amazing and well nourished. It is absorbed incredibly fast making applying body lotion an actually doable task in the winter. Coconut oil deeply moisturises and softens, monoi oil hydrates and sweet almost oil soothes the skin; all essential to keep the skin looking healthy and radiant. And if that wasn't enough, this has no parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, gluten, sulphates or dyes. Must have!

I recently talked about this cutie here so I won’t repeat myself too much. Make sure to check out my review of the Belle of the Ball gift set, but in short this hand cream is nourishing, non-greasy, fast absorbent and deliciously scented.

Lip Care

Dry lips are the worst and the chilly air certainly doesn't help. This has been my staple ever since I purchased it at the beginning of the year and despite including it more than once in my past favourites, I had to include it in this list too! I do love a good matte lipstick, so this is essential to keep my chapped lips at bay and ensure that they don’t become dry or flaky after applying the lippie. I'm sure everyone has tried this at some point, but if you haven’t go get one. You won’t regret it. 

I received this godsend from the lovely Georgiana (aka Beauty Nerd in the first giveaway I ever won) and it hasn't left my handbag ever since. I love the hint of sheer colour and how soothing and nourishing my lips feel after use. It starts working as soon as I put it on and it is ideal for those days I don’t feel like wearing lipstick. Love, love, love!


Currently on offer at Boots, this is a product I always go back to (mostly because my mum uses up all of it and I need to keep repurchasing). Given we both have coloured hair, it is no surprise that our ends can turn bristle and dry, enter this magic hair oil. Claiming to provide shine, moisture and softness, I can certainly vouch for all of these things. I usually apply it before and after blowdrying as a finishing touch and the result is smooth, silky hair and without any flyaways. This is versatile, non-greasy and all-round champ hair oil.

What are your winter staples? Let me know below, I’d love to hear about them!
Thanks for reading beauties and make sure you come back here on Thursday as I have a surprise for my lovely UK readers!




  1. All really great products especially the palmers. Gemma xx

  2. I love Bubblegum, I think it`s my favourite out of all! I suffer from dry skin all year round, but it gets worse in the colder months. That`s why I need to scrub and apply lotion daily.


  3. I love the bubblegum lip scrub by lush! It is a total lifesaver and tastes so so good x

  4. I love hand food so much! Will definitely be looking into that lip scrub, it sounds lush!xx

  5. I used to love the Palmers body moisturisers, but I haven't used them in ages! I'll have to pick this one up next time I'm in Boots! I love the sound of the Carmex lip balm, too :)

  6. You are not the only one with dry everything lol. I've tried the coconut oil body lotion, but my body seems to have an issue with creams that absorb immediately. I need thick ones.

  15. I'm so behind you on this. I feel that even people with great skin have dry patches during winter, and that's saying alot.

    I don't own anything other than the Soap & Glory and the Lush product, and because I don't colour my hair, I can't really use that L'oreal product - but I use another one for my curly hair and I know it's great quality.

    I love how you always have quality products and you always make the best posts.

  16. I have the Carmex Moisture Plus, its such a great product ♥


  17. Lábios secos são o meu maior problema! Fiquei curiosa com esse esfoliante da Lush :)

  24. I have also dry skin and hair (but during all year, not only in winter:/) I have to try this body lotion with coconut oil, especially that this has really good natural components:)


  25. Love Hand Food, the lip scrub and the Carmex lip balm, some of my favourites too! I haven't tried the Palmers with coconut but I love the original so will definitely have to have a sniff!

  40. YESSS I LOVE HAND FOOD! I've been loving some Crabtree & Evelynn hand creams too, but I think after I'm done with my current tube, I'm going back to Soap & Glory. I love how affordable they are too!

    I suffer from really dry skin year round - so it always helps to have something for it all the time. One of my favorite body moisturizers is Lush's Sympathy for the Skin, I want to repurchase it but I have a few other body butters to finish up first!

  42. nice stuff


  43. I definitely need lip care lol! My lips have been so dry this Winter, so I have been using my popcorn lip scrub like crazy.

  44. Thanks for making this selection of useful, lovely and affordable products. The L'Oreal Elvive oil is a must for the colder season, and I loved the Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub, it looks so cute! My lips tend to get really dry on Winter, even if I use different srubs and balms all year round! :o


  45. I adore palmers products! I've been using very rich products and you're right.. it's not even that cold yet. Not looking forward to when the temperature drops even lower xx
