Must-Have Skincare Products for a Summer Glow in the Winter

Skincare is one thing I can never have enough of. I’m a sucker for good products and am always on the hunt for anything that will make my completion clear, glowy, fresh, and vibrant. As we gear up for another freezing winter and prep for inevitably dryer skin I’m sharing my latest skincare favs, that I’ve tried, tested, and am hooked on for glowy summer skin in the winter…


My biggest skincare rec is this AMAZING Goop travel set. In the past my skincare routine would always suffer when I traveled, relying on small samples or sticking to just cleanser and moisturizer to eliminate packing extra products. This set has been a complete game changer. Even if you aren’t as avid of a traveller its an amazing “discovery” set to test out Goop’s products. 1. I love that they’re all natural and 2. I LOVE the way they’ve made my skin look and feel. The oil is my all time favorite. So much so I’ve just ordered it in the full size. The exfoliating mask is the best baby facial to use once a week, the daytime moisturizer is the perfect base layer before sunscreen and makeup, and the night time cream is super hydrating with a thicker texture.

2. Patchology Eye Masks

One of my best friends introduced me to these Patchology Eye Masks during her bachelorette party. They are SO moist and hydrating for the under eyes. I have used Peter Thomas Roths Gold eye masks for over a year and feel like these are even more hydrating. If you’re looking for a natural option, Honest Hazel patches are also amazing. I have both and recommend using at least once a week or before big events.

3. Barbara Sturm Glow Drops

I had been on the fence about Barbara sturm after being underwhelmed with their sun drops, but I will say I’ve become a major fan after trying the Glow Drops that I received as a Christmas gift. I rub in a few drops of these after my facial oil and before my moisturizer every morning and have noticed a big difference in the radiance of my skin. I wish these weren’t so expensive, but they really are an amazing luxury investment if you can foot the splurge. Looking to try the collection or have a set you too can bring on travels? THIS BARBARA GLOW ESSENTIALS SET is great for discovering your favorite products and getting a taste of the brand.

Other Barbara Sturm Favorites that I currently use: The Facial Scrub and The Face Mask

4. Dr.Roebucks Collagen Boosting Serum

This is an oldie but a goodie for me. I’ve been using Australian Brand, Dr. Roebucks for over a year now and I LOVE this natural brand. I’ve tried a range of their products, and every single thing I’ve used is amazing. The collagen boosting serum really hydrates and plumps my skin. I use this daily and nightly before my face cream and really notice a difference in the hydration and plumpness of my skin.


Annoyingly my lips get super chapped during the winter months, and this hydrating exfoliating lip scrub by herbivore has been a lifesaver. I really prefer this to the lip scrub by fresh. I feel like the texture really eliminates chapped skin and the oils penetrate deep within the lips to leave them renewed, plump, and hydrated. 

Once treated I follow up with my absolute favorite La Mer Lip Balm worth the $$.
