Five best winter beauty buys

Cracked lips? Dry skin? Brittle nails? Mumsnetters' top five winter beauty saviours should help you get you through to spring looking radiant, rather than ravaged


1. Palmer's Skin Therapy Oil (rosehip), £9.99

"This product glides on and absorbs quickly, and feels very luxurious. It totally eradicated dry skin on my arms and legs, and my skin looked brighter in appearance." 


2. Burt's Bees lip balm, £2.74

"This is great for my lips, especially walking the dog in the cold wind. Lovely and smooth to apply, it moisturises and adds a barrier to protect from the elements."         


3. Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector, £10.03

"Totally fabulous for dry skin - absorbs quickly and has a great feel. Long-lasting as you don't need much and it survives a quick hand wash. Also great for slathering onto feet and then putting socks on top if you have really dry heels."


4. Phillip Kingsley Flaky Itchy Scalp shampoo, £22

"I love this shampoo. Read about it on Mumsnet and recently bought - totally calmed my scalp and eased flakiness. No more embarrassing scratching either. Well worth the spend."


5. Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant, £39.82

"I have really sensitive skin, but am prone to dry flaky areas, and this is brilliant for me. It lasts for months and is extremely gentle and non-gritty."
