Save Your Face

Cold temperatures, harsh winds, and overheated rooms are hard on your skin. Here is a round-up of skincare products that work their face-saving magic on the harshest wintry days.

Banish Winter Pallor: Multitasking EpicLight Radiant Cheek and Lip Blush is pure genius. Made in Italy, this pampering multipurpose blush and lip tint adds buildable color to your cheeks, lips, or eyelids. Available in four shades infused with hyaluronic acid, avocado oil, and sea fennel extract, this ingenious cheek and lip blush bathes the skin with rich moisture, kissing your face with a subtle hint of color. My favorite shade? Whispering Peach!

Sleepless in Seattle or elsewhere? Enriched with melatonin, Mella Steady as You Glow moisturizer is definitely the most intriguing skincare product I’ve come across this year. I haven’t used it long enough to confirm the claims that it improves mental clarity and sleep quality in addition to providing overall skin improvement, but I’m certainly fascinated enough to give it a go for the long term. Take advantage of their Black Friday sale to score 20% off your Mella Steady As You Glow purchase from 11/22 to 12/31.

No B.S. Rejuvenating Niacinamide Elixir: This milky serum feels soft and silky going on and quickly sinks into your skin without making it greasy. Niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, and soothing chamomile extract work together to protect winter weary skin from harsh weather and other environmental stressors, leaving it feeling smoother, softer, and hydrated.

Patchology FLASHPATCH® Illuminating Eye Gels: It only takes five minutes for these eye gel patches to reduce puffiness in the undereye area. With consistent use, the Vitamin C and Mulberry Extract in these eye gels reduces hyperpigmentation and will brighten the appearance of dark circles under your eyes. Take 30% off your Black Friday order by using the code PATCHBF30. Shop here.

Daybird Tinted Skincare: Downsize your skincare routine without sacrificing performance with this tinted skincare formula. It acts as a serum, moisturizer, and SPF 50 sunscreen rolled into one while providing foundation-quality coverage. Note: The formula is fairly thick in texture, so I always mix it with primer before applying it. Shop here and enjoy 30% off site-wide until 12/4. Daybird is donating 5% of their sales on Giving Tuesday.

It’s cold out there! Your skin is depending on you to pamper and protect it.
