Winter beauty is normally all about extra rich creams, nourishing face oils and hard-working exfoliants. But this month, we’re noticing a trend for multitasking BB creams, glowing formulas, and indulgent body treatments. Consider them your excuse to spend the better part of your winter days sleeping in, staying warm, and pampering yourself, all while keeping dry, dull skin at bay.
These are our favourite new a-beauty products to hit shelves this month:
Best mineral sunscreen for winter
Sunscreen is a year-round commitment. But if you’re finding your summer go-to formula isn’t working with your dull winter skin then grab yourself a tube of this Naked Sundays sunscreen. It’s a vegan 4-in-1 multitasker that works as a SPF 50+ mineral sunscreen, primer, collagen-booster and moisturiser in one simple step. Your dry winter skin will love the addition of watermelon extract in the formula as it gives an antioxidant-rich hit of hydration and moisture. The formula also imparts a gorgeous glowy finish.
Best for speeding up your morning routine
Chilly winter mornings are the perfect motivator for streamlining your beauty routine. Spend more time in your warm bed and less time primping with Breeze Balm’s new BB cream. The sheer tint ticks the box for a minimalist makeup look while hydrating and brightening ingredients like pomegranate seed, papaya fruit extract, mango butter, avocado oil and jojoba deliver maximum results in one effortless product.
Best for enhancing your shower experience
OUR PICK: Minenssey Body Wash
Need an excuse to stay under that hot shower for a few more minutes? Minenssey’s new body wash will happily oblige. The botanical formula features an invigorating blend of essential oils that leaves skin clean, smooth and supple. We’re especially obsessed with the fragrance: Inspired by sweet spring Australian gardens, it coats your skin with its rich notes of jasmine and honeysuckle paired with invigorating pink grapefruit.
Best for a minimal winter makeup look
OUR PICK: Sabbia Co Mineral BB Cream
BB creams aren’t just for effortless summer complexions. In fact, they’re the perfect solution for nailing the ‘no makeup’ makeup look in winter. The sheer tint delivers soft coverage to even out your skin tone while the nourishing formula - this Sabbia Co one contains hyaluronic acid, plant-based rice peptides, Kakadu plum and green tea - gives your complexion an all-important hydration boost, which your skin will thank you for during the winter months. What else we love about this Sabbia Co one? It’s packed full of Australian, raw, vegan ingredients and it gives skin a subtly shimmery glow. We don’t know about you, but in winter our skin could use all the help it can get in the radiance department!
Best for a glowier night’s sleep
OUR PICK: Cinch Skin Sleep + Glow (launching soon!)
We love products that do their best work overnight. They make us feel less guilty about our morning sleep-ins. This newbie from glow-makers Cinch is worthy of the final spot in your bedtime routine. It’s a lightweight mask that cleanses, exfoliates (thanks to pawpaw and pineapple enzymes), hydrates and smooths the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while you sleep. Say good morning to glowing skin!
