After the holidays, I just wish & wish that it would jump right to the springtime. Can't we skip all of the cold, dark, and depressing winter season? I guess that's what I get for living in Eastern Pennsylvania--I get to deal with the cold & brutal weather, and yes, even the toll it takes on my skin. My skin gets so dry, and I get so pale from the lack of sunshine, it's depressing!

Today, I'm talking all about my top ten winter beauty favorites--some will help your skin stay hydrated, others your hair, and some are there to just simply help you look great and feel confident all winter long.

Olay Total Effects Cleansing Whip Facial Cleanser

If you're in need of a new cleanser, I highly recommend trying this one out. It's amazing--not only does it cleanse, it helps to exfoliate, too! It's helped keep my skin smooth and breakout free.

Olay Clay Masks--Glow Boost

You can always use a little extra glow during the winter, plus who doesn't love a face mask?! The clay masks from Olay are the bomb, because they are mess-free! I wrote about them here, and I honestly love them all so, so much. The Glow Boost will help to give your skin the extra glow it needs this winter.

Olay Total Effects Whip Face Moisturizer SPF 25

Say hello to my favorite moisturizer in the entire world. No lie, it has made such a huge difference in the way my makeup applies and wears throughout the day. I accidentally ran out and had to use another moisturizer the other day underneath my makeup, and it was slipping all over my face. Not only did it ruin my makeup while I was at work, I had no way of fixing it either. AND because my face was way greasier than it had been, it broke out because of it RIGHT before the holidays.

Olay Whips is more than a moisturizer--it's a moisturizer AND primer in one, so that's why makeup game has been changed forever. If you still haven't tried it or want a little more info on it, check out this blog post.

Pixi Glow Tonic Toner

For the past few years now, I had been fighting to get rid of scaring on my cheeks from when I was taking a prescription that gave me the worst reaction. I was also stressed out the wazoo from a job that I hated. I had the worst breakouts--even on my wedding day. It was the worst ever, but a few short months after, I discovered this Pixi toner. It is a literal life-changer. It has changed my skin and confidence. I don't have to wear as full-coverage of foundation, and my skin is so soft and smooth now!

PixiGlow Cake

Hello glowy bronzed goddess! This all-in-one Glow Cake has your bronzer, blush, and highlighter in one to give you the most gorgeous, glowy skin. There are two color combos to choose from so that you can choose the perfect coloring and glow for your skin tone.

Pantene Pro-V Daily Moisture Renewal Detangler Spray

Raise your hand if even your hair gets dry in the wintertime! 🙋 I hate that my hair gets so dry--between dry ends (which I'm in desperate need of a cut!) and the static, my hair is usually a disaster. haha! While I was doing the Pantene 14 Day Challenge a couple of weeks ago, I discovered this detangler spray that also helps with renewing your hair and helps to strengthen dry hair!

PreHeels Spray

If you're a heel-wearing lover, you need this spray. It is a God-send. It literally creates a protective layer--like a second skin on your feet so that it reduces the friction from your shoes. It helps to prevent blisters and rubbing. I will spray it on my feet in the morning and be able to last in my heels all day long! I discovered it while I was in NYC with a friend for HerConference, and we were walking all around NYC--neither of us got blisters, and we wore our heels for miles and miles of walking--just like crazy bloggers in NYC do. ;)

It Cosmetics CC+ Cream

Y'all have heard me rave about this foundation forever and ever. It is my all-time favorite and I never use anything else! It gives such a gorgeous medium to full coverage, and it doesn't feel heavy on the skin at all.

Urban Decay Setting Spray

In the wintertime especially, I feel like once I have all my powders on, I like to add a little more glow and a "liquidy" and glass-like look to my skin. By adding a little setting spray and patting it into my skin with a beauty sponge, it helps to add that glowy look again! I love, love the way it makes my skin look and it helps my makeup stay on so much longer.

Tarte Self-Tanner

There's something about being tan in the wintertime that gives you a little extra confidence. If you're looking for a product that gives you a natural-looking glow without the streaks and horrendous fake tanner "smell", then this product will be your new go-to!

What are some of your favorite winter beauty favorites?!
