“I wear Kate Somerville’s RetAsphere 2-in-1 Retinol Night Cream all year round, but during the winter months I mix it with Lancome’s Renergie Lift for even more moisture.” - Amanda Graber Rosenberg, Head of PR


“I actually use this AYRES Body Butter year round because it’s just that good, but the orange and vanilla-ish Midnight Tango scent feels perfect for winter.” —Monica Freeman, Associate Editorial Director


“I buy tubes of Aesop Geranium Leaf Body Balm every year as soon as it starts to get cold. It’s super thick and rich, so it’s perfect for the brutal winds in New York City.” —Jane Lee, Associate Producer


“Once a week, I turn to Kerastase Masque Nutri-Thermique. I’ll apply a quarter sized amount to my towel-dried hair, let it sit for five minutes and then rinse with warm water.” —Sydney Locker, Assistant Buyer of Designer


“I swap out my summer face lotion for Embryolisse’’s Lait-Crème Concentre. It’s super moisturizing but still manages to feel light on my skin. Plus, it’s the best for taming fly-aways in a pinch.” —Paige Zanelli, Social Media Specialist 


Sachajuan’s Hair Repair is one of my favorite products because it smooths and softens hair pretty much immediately, and it smells incredible. ” —Donna Potter, Designer for Private Label


“I make sure to keep it moisturized with my favorite La Mer products. First I apply the serum, then top it off with the moisturizing gel. It does the trick without making my face overly greasy or shiny.” —America Young, Human Resources Assistant


“I love using Pureology Strength Cure conditioner. It has a thick, creamy texture that keeps my hair soft and protects against breakage, and it smells amazing too!” —Lesley Wilkes, Marketing Project Manager


“I love an unexpected pop of bold color in the middle of a gray winter. Illamasqua’s “Eurydice” is such an instant pick-me-up when I’m feeling pale. It also has the ability to magically transform boring black separates into a look.” - Tracey Lomrantz-Lester, Director of Brand Marketing
