Now that we’re in the thick of winter, you’ve probably noticed dryness isn’t just causing problems on your face. It’s a hair-to-toe struggle this time of year so you need a set of hydrating heroes to help out.
These are our favourite new a-beauty products to hit shelves this month that have you covered in the hydration department:
Best for a simple hydration fix
For a one-spritz hit of hydration, we are loving Kora Organics’ new product, Minty Mineral Hydration Mist. It’s packed with a super team of hydrating and soothing ingredients, including certified organic aloe vera, microalgae, blue daisy and sea water. It helps rehydrate skin and restore dull skin that’s lost its natural glow during winter.
Best for sensitive skin types
OUR PICK: We Are Feel Good Inc. Sensitive Body Milk (launching soon)
Ok, time to take care of the skin below your face. If you have sensitive skin, you'll know that skipping body moisturiser in winter is a recipe for extreme dryness. But it's also important that you find a formula that's non-irritating. Well, this one fits the bill. It's non-greasy, dermatologically tested, fragrance free, and soothes and hydrates with the help of niacinamide, Australian Kakadu plum, aloe vera, cacao butter, olive oil extract and coconut oil.
Best for clean beauty converts
OUR PICK: Formula. K Hydrating Facial Oil (launching soon)
We are so excited for the launch of this new homegrown skincare brand, Formula. K Skincare. Founded by a dermal therapist, it's all about cruelty and toxic free skincare that delivers powerful results.

One dollar from every Formula. K Skincare product sold goes to charity.
Best for happy winter hair
How's your hair handling the cooler weather? Does it need to be rebalanced? Not only are we loving Mr. Smith's Balancing Shampoo and Balancing Conditioner for gently cleansing our scalp, and softening and repairing our hair, we adore the limited edition packaging by Brad Turner and the fact that Mr. Smith is donating all profits from their sale directly to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation.
