Winter Beauty Essentials + Aquaphor - The Fashionably Broke

Winter Beauty Essentials + Aquaphor

During the summertime, my beauty routine lessens. I like to let the sun do it's thing, with a little help from SPF and a good lip color, and that's how I roll from the months of June through August. Basically, summer is my thang. And I know my skin totally agrees with me, because we start to strugs from when October rolls around, all the way through about February. Here in DC, where the air goes from moisture-full to dry overnight, it's time to bust out the big guns. Enter: Aquaphor


Specifically, Aquaphor Healing Ointment has been my secret weapon the past few weeks for keeping my skin from becoming dry and irritated as the temperature cools down. I keep a mini bottle of it in my purse, along with the Aquaphor Lip Repair. No one wants to be caught with dry hands or cracked lips, am I right?

See below for what other beauty essentials I've been carrying with me lately... AND, we're excited to announce that, one lucky reader of this post will win an Aquaphor Healing Ointment along with a $50 Visa gift card to spend on their own winter beauty essentials. Just follow these simple rules below:
