Cold weather saviours for head to toe from RoC, Herbal Essences, Carmex, Avon, Canada Goose and Pajar for Reitmans!

Now that winter has arrived with a vengeance I'm noticing all the horrible things that the cold, icy weather and wind are doing to pretty much every part of me and have been switching over to products to help combat the damage being done to my skin, lips and hair. Some of my faves include:

RoC Enydrial Extra-Emollient Rich Shower Cream - 400ml - $24 - especially meant to soothe very dry and sensitive skin with a soap-free formula to prevent skin from drying out that contains allantoin and panthenol to leave skin feeling soft and smooth as it gently cleanses skin without irritation and glycerin for an immediate sensation of comfort. Hypoallergenic, fragrance and paraben free, it's gentle enough for use on the face and body.

Also available in the Enydrial line:

Moisturising Body Lotion - 200ml - $24
Moisturising Face Cream - 40ml - $24
Repairing Lip Care - 4.8g - $7
Hand Cream - 50ml - $10

Available at drugstores across Canada.
Herbal Essences Honey I'm Strong Rinse Off Treatment - 230ml - $4.99 - seeks out damaged areas of hair to help repair the protective outer layer and restore hair's naturally silky, strong feeling while the soothing benefits of honey give your hair the moisture it needs to help restore its strength for silky, smooth strands and also protect it from future damage.
Carmex Lip Ointment - 10g - $3.49 - moisturizes lips while protecting them against the elements with natural moisturizers such as cocoa butter and lanolin to provide healthy-looking lips by restoring lost moisture and preventing dryness. The ingredients I like best are the camphor and menthol which provide a cooling and tingling effect which is great for irritated lips, fabulous as a lipstick base and even better when I'm suffering from a cold sore for instant relief!

Available at Shoppers Drug mart, Pharmasave, Walmart, Rexall, Metro, Safeway, Sobeys and London Drugs.
Avon Moisture Therapy Intensive Healing & Repair Hand Cream - 125ml - $8 - protects hands and exposed skin against the drying effects of wind and cold weather while helping to prevent and relieve chafed, chapped and cracked skin with a fragrance-free, intensive healing and repairing formula that is clinically shown to provide a protective barrier that seals in moisture.

Available from your Avon rep - 1-800-265-AVON or online at www.avon.ca.
Canada Goose Coats has all all kinds of fashionable and warm offerings including the Ladies Hybridge Hoodie - $625 - in sizes 2XS, XS, S, M, L and XL - if you don't want to look like the Michelin Man but still want all the warm of a puffer then check out this slim and insulated style that offers Thermal Mapping Technology - premium Canadian Hutterite white duck down shields over gender-specific body areas to create warmth while still ensuring outstanding flexibility and performance.

Nothing makes winter worse then cold wet feet which will no longer be a worry with:

Pajar for Reitmans Natalia Boots - $100 - a lace up boot with a sherpa fold-down cuff and a micro leather/waxed nylon upper. Best of all they are waterproof and weatherproof to -20 - boots that look good and keep your feet toasty warm can't be beat! Not to mention - they also come in pink!
