Intern Craig's Picks: Moisturizers

As the temperature drops, I always manage to ensure that I have 537 different cardigans and scarves to take me through the season. But what about the parts of our body that still have to brave the elements, like our faces? As Fashion Herald's resident beauty junkie, I am bestowing my beauty wisdom on you this holiday season.

Philosophy's Hope in a Jar is probably best known as Oprah's favorite facial moisturizer. If it lives up to Ms. Winfrey's expectations, you can certainly expect it to live up to yours. The scent is a little interesting at first but the moisturizer is just fantastic for all skin types. For those of you with oily skin, it might be a little richer than you're used to, but if you're worried about extra shine, just dab a sheer pressed powder on top.

My skin is horrifyingly dry especially in the winter. The only way I can prevent my elbows and knees from cracking is Korres Body Butter. It's made mostly of Shea Butter which is fantastic because it melts right into the skin without leaving you greasy. Korres gives you a nice selection of scents in its body care like Fig and Japanese Rose. My favorite is the classic Guava.

I could write volumes of my love for Rosebud Salve for the lips. I'm a long time user of the original scent but thanks to a lovely gift from my boss, I recently switched to strawberry. The huge container might be a little too much for some people. Luckily, Rosebud Salve just came out with a tube form of its original scent so there's something for everyone.

As always, all of these products can be found at Sephora on 34th Street or Sephora in JCPenney. Any of these will make great gifts but don't be afraid to pamper yourself. Enjoy!

Sephora, 130 W. 34th Street between Broadway & 7th
Sephora JCPenney Manhattan Mall, lower level 1, 33rd & 6th Avenue

My favorite lip balm of all time comes from Fresh. I just went to Sephora and bought another one today.

does this get rid of white stretch marks? its strange because my stretch marks on my arms didnt even go red 1st like they normally do, one day i was just looking in the mirror when i was getting ready and lifted my arm up and i had loads of white stretch marks, but they were not there a few weeks before. very odd, so im going to try this asap xx

I never leave home without my lip balm, especially in winter!

I'm going to try this "Fresh." I wonder if Craig's tried lips are always chapped.
