The moisture and hydration theme continues as the weather gets colder and my skin gets itchier.

In November, I also pay attention to aromatherapy. Flowers are hard to come by this time of year, so I rely heavily on products laced with beautiful essential oils and absolutes to keep my mind at ease.

These are my November favorite beauty products.

kimberlyloc’s November Favorite Beauty Products

Korina Naturals Jasmine & Sandalwood Whipped Body Balm

I know you know that I love jasmine.

New-to-me Korina Naturals Jasmine & Sandalwood Whipped Body Balm is part of my love affair. This concentrated (read: rich) balm is whipped with shea butter, coconut oil and jojoba oil for a sweet skin treat. It lulls me to sleep after slathering it on head-to-toe before bed.

I apply a little extra on my feet (and then put on socks!) to feel like a fancy flower lady. It works.

Marie Veronique Pre+Probiotic Daily Mist

Popping a daily probiotic? Of course you are.

Misting a daily probiotic? Maybe not.

But now you can. Marie Veronique’s Pre+Probiotic Daily Mist is part of my everyday vitamin cocktail, and for good reason. This calming blend contains a combination of 34 probiotic live strains, including a high concentration of Bifidobacterium, kept in balance with prebiotics to maintain healthy skin flora (goodbye, facial fungus!).

If you’re prone to irritation, inflammation and itchiness, this mist can offer some relief. I like it in the morning and a few times throughout the day.

Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel

A Korean beauty staple, Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel offers fragrance-free, calming hydration to even the most sensitive skin. Aloe and propolis are known for their ability to soothe irritation and quench skin’s thirst.

I like using this gel right after cleansing and misting. It’s a perfect base layer to targeted serums, creams and moisturizers and promises all-day hydration. Itchiness and flakiness stand zero chance.

Bonus: If your hands are extra dry and cracking, use a layer of this before piling on the heavy hand creams and ointments.

R+Co Atlantis Moisturizing Shampoo

In cold, dry weather, my colored hair appears brittle, damaged and dull. R+Co Atlantis Moisturizing Shampoo is my go-to when my hair needs softening and shine. The smell is incredible (clean, fresh and ocean-like), and the lather is gentle. After shampooing and drying, my hair always looks way better and feels soft to the touch.

Stylist Tip: If you use other color-preserving formulas (like R+Co Sunset Blvd. for blondes), you can easily mix a little of Atlantis with it to help amp up the moisture.

Aveda Hand Relief

I’m quickly making my way through my hand cream collection. Aveda’s Hand Relief is getting lots of attention this winter thanks to its quick and intense moisturizing action. It’s loaded with aloe and meadowfoam seed oil for instant hydration and softening.

The scent is also quite neutral (the man in the house likes this) and doesn’t interfere with perfumes or other scents you may wear.
