Thrive Market’s Best Winter Beauty Products

December 5, 2022

After a few months outdoors with the sun on your skin and a warm breeze in the air, the sudden chill of winter can take a dramatic toll on your face, hair, and body. 

It’s true, there’s beauty to be found in every season—but when you’re struggling with dry, flaky skin, stressed-out strands, and chapped lips that just won’t seem to calm down, winter makes it a bit more difficult to see it. 

We’ve assembled a guide to all the best winter beauty products at Thrive Market (think: deeply nourishing moisturizers, protective oils, and rich balms) to make it easy to restock your shelves for the colder months. Here are the top winter personal care essentials from some of our favorite brands. 

Best Natural Makeup for Winter

MyChelle Sun Shield Liquid SPF 50
Sun protection is important all year long, even during the colder months. Merge your winter SPF routine with your daily makeup routine with this tinted sunscreen. 

RMS Beauty Peach Luminizer
Bring some warm, glowing-from-within color to your face with this creamy highlighter.

Well People Expressionist Pro Mascara
This mascara uses only nontoxic, botanical ingredients that are safe on sensitive eyes, and the curved brush will help you look more awake (even when the sun goes down early).

Mineral Fusion Sheer Moisture Lip Tint
The cocoa butter in this lip tint helps to soothe chapped lips, while the vanilla-mint flavor is perfect for the winter season.
