My Favorite Winter Essentials

Hey there! Winter is officially right around the corner but for a lot of the U.S., it’s been pretty darn cold. That being said, it’s important to have items that keep you warm, keep your skin hydrated, and make you happy. I want to share with you my winter essentials!

So, here are my winter essentials!

Garnier Gel Moisturizer

This is my favorite face moisturizer. I’ve been using it for years and it keeps my skin hydrated throughout the day. Since you don’t typically cover your face like you do the rest of your body, you really need to make sure you’re doing a good job at keeping your face hydrated.

Flannel Pajamas

Winter means cold weather and that means needing pajamas that keep you warm at night. I love soft pajamas, but flannel pajamas do a really good job at keeping me warm. Plus, since it’s the holidays, you can get a cute holiday-themed pajama set!


My day consists of a lot of talking, so my lips can get dry. I always have a tube of chapstick in my pocket. I used to keep it just in my purse but when I found that I kept reaching for it during the day, I decided to just keep it in my pocket.

Ankle Booties

If I can, I always try to wear ankle booties in the winter. They’re absolutely cute, but they also keep my feet warm. In the summer I’m always in sandals and flats, but in the winter I want my feet to be fully covered and still look cute.

Cough Drops

Just like chapstick, I keep this with me in my pocket. Sometimes the dry air can cause an itch my throat that just water can’t help, so I want to make sure that I have cough drops with me.

Nivea Body Moisturizer

Just because you cover up your body with warm clothes doesn’t mean you shouldn’t moisturize the rest of your body. I love Nivea moisturizer. It’s thick but not too thick, and it does a good job at keeping my skin moisturized without making it slick or tacky.

Hand Sanitizer

This time of year is prime sick time. My job is with the public, so I am very prone to getting sick. I keep a mini hand sanitizer in my purse, but also make sure that I have a pump one at my workstation. I cannot risk getting sick this time of year.

    I completely agree with all of these. I live in the Northeast and I can’t have enough chap stick or moisturizer nearby. It is crazy! Finding a good brand is everything – will be sure to try the Garnier one you recommended!

    Cute books, warm pjs, good moisturizer and lip balm are on my list too! Gotta protect that skin and stay warm in all this cold. Fuzzy blankets, leggings and sweaters are other personal winter must haves! I like to keep it cozy haha. Thanks for sharing! Happy Holidays 😊
