BWB’s Winter Toolkit
Snuggle up knowing your skin is hydrated, smelling beautiful, and feeling fresh.
Introducing the BWB winter toolkit: fending off the effects of bitter wind outside, and dry air inside. We have selected a few products we use and love – a few cult favorites you will soon call staples, too!
Face: Clarins SOS series
With its new line of six SOS Primers, Clarins has us prepared to face the winter. Each primer addresses a different beauty concern: lack of radiance, signs of fatigue, imperfections, dark spots, redness, and sallow skin. The primers boast multitasking formulas for a flawless complexion, delivering hydration and protection against pollution and free radicals. Packed in the most colorful and easy to travel tubes, they look like little candies perfect for carrying in your purse. Protect your skin everywhere you go and be fierce in the face of Jack Frost.
Hands: Byredo Rose Hand Wash and Lotion Duo
Imagine that, every time you washed your hands, you entered into a beautiful rose garden where each petal dripped with gentle morning dew. We don’t exaggerate when we attest: the Byredo’s Rose Hand Wash and Lotion Duo gives you a luxurious spa treatment at every trip to the sink. While the warm water trickles over your hands, a delicate, spicy scent of pink pepper and raspberry wafts to your nose in a soft perfume, and you are left with hands smelling of subtle mint patchouli and white musk. After you cleanse, the Rose hand lotion softens your skin with light yet nourishing hydration. The combination will leave you feeling pampered the whole day through.
No one knows cold better than Stockholm, so naturally they are also experts in keeping things cozy. & Other Stories is a wellness brand born and bred in the snowy city, and they boast a whole assortment of Scandinavian-inspired bath, body, and home fragrance indulgences to help create a warm, welcoming home environment.
Their products offer the perfect cold weather treatment for luxuriously hydrated, healthy skin. Their Moroccan Tea Body Soufflé, for example, is a rich whipped body cream that keeps skin eternally soft, supple, and scented with crisp spearmint and lemon. Hints of cardamom and orange flower complete the perfume while Shea butter nourishes and Babassu oil protects. And the best part? They are all extremely affordable, perfect for the post-Christmas wallet.
This season, we invite you to stay inside and spoil your skin with the attention it deserves. With this winter toolkit, you can snuggle up knowing your skin is hydrated, smelling beautiful, and feeling fresh.
