    1. A facial scrub to brighten, cleanse, and soften your face with sea kelp and French green clay so even the gloomiest weather can't dim your shine.

    2. A Fenty Beauty Pro Filt'r hydrating foundation, because as we know, when the winds get colder our skin tends to get dryer and this grape seed oil and sodium hyaluronate formula will give you a moisturizing, natural-looking, smooth finish.

    3. A pack of acne patches that are made with hydrocolloid dressing, tea tree oil, calendula oil, and cica that'll suck the gunk right out of your zits and help them fade away overnight.

    4. A La Roche-Posay hydrating cleanser for a dependable daily face wash that'll gently get your makeup off, while still helping your skin retain moisture.

    5. A paraben-free St. Ives facial moisturizer, because it uses safflower oil to help hydrate dry skin and make it feel soft and smooth — even when the piercing winter wind has other plans.

    6. A bottle of Jergens wet skin lotion perfect for lazy people, because you can apply it while your skin is still wet, before you even step out of the shower. It saves a few minutes and will lock in the hydration your skin needs.

    7. A jar of Glow Recipe's watermelon sleeping mask that uses hyaluronic acid and AHAs to help give you a skin-smoothing and radiance-boosting overnight facial.

    8. A Kai body buffer — a hypoallergenic sponge infused with natural oils — that'll release foaming bubbles when wet. The handy sponge works to deeply cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize your skin. I have one of these in my shower right now and I LOVE it!

    9. A jar of O'Keeffe's hand cream that'll really come in ~handy~ during winter as it helps to repair painful blisters and cracked skin.

    10. A low pH Cosrx gel cleanser formulated with tea tree leaf oil to deep clean pores and bring out your natural glow, without stripping your skin.

    11. Some lemon gauze peeling pads that use triple-layered threading technology to provide mild chemical exfoliation, giving your pores a nice deep cleaning and leaving your face looking brighter than ever.

    12. A NYX setting spray to lock your fabulous makeup looks in place, while keeping your skin hydrated at the same time. Snow, wind, or drizzle don't stand a chance at messing up your cut crease.

    13. A jar of H2O+ Beauty ultra hydrating face cream, because it uses a water-gel formula to moisturize even those super duper dry patches of skin. Water lily and sea grass extracts help condition and promote your skin's ability to retain moisture, and it also has illuminating pigments so you can get your glow on.

    14. A powder-to-foam exfoliant treatment enzyme peel that uses natural papaya enzymes to break down dead surface skin cells and reveal the new skin underneath.

    15. A bottle of iS Clinical active face serum to help renew your complexion, brighten your skin, and more with its combination of pharmaceutical-grade botanicals, including mushroom, bilberry, sugar cane, and white willow bark extracts.

    16. A jar of Pond’s cream cleanser, aka the classic beauty favorite for dissolving makeup while simultaneously moisturizing your skin. Gotta love a twofer!

    17. A natural mineral-infused dead sea mud mask to use as a daily acne treatment. Its job is to gently purify and clean clogged pores, while leaving your skin super soft. And who wouldn't want to enjoy a nice self-care session after you've braved the cold and made it back in the house for the evening?!

    18. A Kiehl's night serum that tones and hydrates skin, meaning you might be looking forward to a radiant morning glow.

    19. Or a bottle of The Body Shop's tea tree night lotion, because it uses a gel-lotion texture infused with pure tea tree oil to provide light hydration for blemish prone skin throughout the night, while also minimizing excess oil.

    20. A bottle of Glossier's Milk Jelly cleanser perfect for gently washing away daily makeup and grime, leaving your face feeling healthy and soft.

    21. Some of Tarte's collagen serum made with vegan marine plant collagen to hydrate your skin and possibly make it look firmer.

    23. A vitamin C facial cleanser formulated with organic and natural ingredients such as aloe vera, coconut water, and green tea extract, that can result in less visible fine lines, clearer skin, and more.

    24. A pack of 16 Dermal Korea collagen sheet masks for possibly healthier, clearer, and more elastic skin. The scents vary, but they each contain vitamin E and collagen (plus, they're mess-free).

    25. Drunk Elephant's T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial to give your skin a pro-level treatment that'll exfoliate dead skin cells and rev up surface turnover to smooth and brighten.

    27. A bottle of DHC's moisturizing and clarifying peeling gel for a unique exfoliating experience that binds sebum and dead surface skin together and turns it into little particles that'll roll off your face when you rise it with water. WOW! It also contains citrus extracts to brighten and hyaluronic acid to preserve moisture.

    28. And a jar of Tarte's lip butter to hydrate and exfoliate your lips with jojoba oil and shea butter and make them feel amazingly soft. No one wants their lips cracking and splitting all winter — plus, this cute packaging will remind you that spring is just a round the corner!
