My Favorite Products: Face Oils

hMinnesota winters can be * harsh. The snow, the salt, the dry, dry air. Or at least usually that’s the case.

I love winter. I love being cozy, snowed in with a glass of wine, a delicious meal (maybe a Norwegian Fiskesuppe?) a good book or movie, cozy blankets and candles.

This winter has been especially mild. Fifty degrees in March with no snow? Just drab, dirty winter. I’m not into it. And neither is my skin – so dry!

Solution? Beautycounter Face Oils. 


The new Beautycounter+ Lineup plus the fabulous Face Oils!

I know what you’re thinking – put oil on my skin? That seems like a really bad idea.** Oils are actually really great for your skin for a variety of reasons. Especially in harsher, drier climes like Minnesota.

Mix a drop or two with your moisturizer and you are set. This is one of my favorite discoveries within the Beautycounter skin care line. I love how well it works and what it’s done for my skin. I use it year round (mixing with a lighter moisturizer in the summer).

(Side note: today Beautycounter announced its new Beautycounter+ line which is AMAZING! I have tried all of them and they are awesome.)

I’m not done hoping for winter, for more snow and a chance to be socked in with nothing to do but be cozied up with the two Z’s***, a blanket and a cup of tea.

“Snow was falling,
so much like stars
filling the dark trees
that one could easily imagine
its reason for being was nothing more
than prettiness.”
― Mary Oliver

(But seriously – can it snow again?)
