The best way to welcome the winter season is by stocking up on your go-to winter products. With a focus on cozy layers and all things hygge, this season also marks the beginning of a new chapter for skincare and body care. From a rich essences to hair oils and home essentials, here are some of our skin, body & home picks for the Fall/Winter season!
The Molton Brown Holiday collection
When it comes to treats for the holidays, we look to Molton Brown every year. From glittery body washes to festive stocking fillers and gift sets — Molton Brown has you covered for the holidays. They always come in pretty festive boxes so they make great gifts under your Christmas tree!
For this year's holidays, we are in love with the Merry Berries & Mimosa line. The red and gold capped bottle, filled with a rich red and gold shower gel is the ultimate treat for the holiday season. The Merry Berries & Mimosa line smells of fresh red berries, winter fruits and warm musky woods, filling your house with a warm and cozy holiday mood. Of course no holiday season is complete without one (or two (or an entire tree)) of Molton Brown's festive baubles. This year the baubles come in a variety of colours again. Decorate your Christmas tree with the baubles during the festive season and pick your bauble come Christmas. To finish off your festive mood at home, go for one of Molton Brown's scented candles. Not only do the ultra luxurious candles stand out in your interior, they fill the room with a pleasantly warm aroma as well.
If you're more into softer notes to fill your home for the holidays, we recommend the Vintage With Elderflower holiday line. This line smells of fresh notes of grapefruit, English elderflower and an aromatic vetiver to top it off. The golden and glittery tones of this line will add to any elegant festive home for sure. Or the Rose Dunes line, which isn't an official holiday line, but the amber notes in the collection, with warm rose and cassis, make for a perfect evening by the fire!
And if you're not looking for a holiday scent per se, we recommend the Rose Dunes line. Filled with cassis, saffron, cinnamon, patchouli and amber, the Rose Dunes line is elegant and sophisticated for this season. The bath & shower gel comes in a beautiful rose and gold toned formula while the perfume bottle features a stunning pink-marbled cap. Not only will the scent add a pleasant winter mood in your home, it is also a darn-pretty accessory in your interior!
The Marie-Stella-Maris holiday giftset
Last but not least, we always love a good spoil and splurge at Marie-Stella-Maris. Their holiday gift sets are like no other — packaged in a luxurious deep red and gold boxes and filled with your favourite Marie-Stella-Maris products. We love their new holiday gift set featuring the duo of Objets d'Amsterdam (our favourite line, we've mentioned this numerous times before!) hand wash and lotion, but now in a sophisticated glass bottle. The gift set also includes an elegant white ceramic tray. Use it for the bottles or style it in your interior in your own way.
The Maria Nila bestsellers
Taking care of your hair is essential in this cold winter season. The cold weather can leave your hair feeling dry and lifeless so treating your hair with care is not just a treat but necessary to keep it healthy and fresh.
We've been meaning to try Maria Nila for a while now. The vegan haircare brand is much beloved in the beauty community so we couldn't wait to try it out. We tried out some of Maria Nila's bestsellers. Starting off with the iconic True Soft Shampoo and True Soft Conditioner duo. We tried both for a week — the shampoo left our hair smooth and radiant while the conditioner added a pleasant shine to our hair. The shampoo and conditioner both had a lovely floral scent and felt rich through the use of argan oil in the formula. From the True Soft line we also try the True Soft Hair Mask. A creamy and soft treatment that is best applied once a week on the hair. This was definitely luxurious to use and perfect for any treat yo self moment. The last product from the True Soft line we try is their Argan Oil. The argan oil is designed to moisturise as well as strengthen the hair. We love how quickly the oil was absorbed into our hair, reducing frizz but also adding a soft layer or floral fragrance. Best applied on damp hair!
For the holidays, you might want to take out that curling or straightening iron out of the closet and start getting creative. Having a good heat spray is no unnecessary companion on those days. We tried out the Cream Heat Spray. Most heat sprays we've used are in liquid form so this is the first cream-based heat spray we try. We have to say — the cream formula actually works better to protect your hair from the heat. Our hair felt naturally healthy with this heat spray and almost untouched by the heat of the iron! To further style the hair, we enjoyed using the Minerals Gneiss Wax — a thick molding paste that provided fullness and texture to the hair.
The Moroccanoil hydration holiday set
From Moroccanoil, we love their new limited edition Hydration Holiday set — a perfect gift for your friends and family (and yourself) for the holidays. Released in a shiny metallic pouch, the set includes four of Moroccanoil's bestselling haircare products. There's the Hydrating Shampoo — a rich and hydrating shampoo filled with argan oil, vitamins A and E and red algae. After a week-long use, we felt it left our hair soft and shiny. There's the Hydrating Conditioner — a gentle formula that leaves your hair feeling silky smooth. The set also includes Morocconoil's iconic treatment; one of our personal favorites already. This Treatment is an oil-infused hair product that boosts shine and leaves your hair nourished and smooth. We like to use this by applying it on towel-dried hair, from mid-length to ends. And lastly, the set comes with a large bottle of hand wash in the Originale fragrance. With hints of amber, magnolia and woods, this is a luxurious hand wash to keep in your bathroom!
