  1. Aesop, Fabulous Face Oil, £40 (25ml). www.aesop.com
    This is the WYSIWYG of beauty products, its fabulous face oil.  Ideal for hydrating wind battered skin after a day on the slopes, it smells divine and is suited to all skin types. Despite being an oil it has a non-greasy finish.
  2. Bobbi Brown Lip Balm SPF 15,  £15 www.bobbibrown.com
    Specially formulated with Wheat Germ and Olive Oil, this comfortable, non-greasy lip balm immediately goes to work comforting and protecting lips against the cold and the sun. Wear alone for natural look, with Lip Liner or Lip Gloss.  It also comes in a very sleek and portable polished silver tin.
  3. Batiste, Dry Shampoo, £2.99  www.urbanretreat.co.uk
    This product has a cult like following cemented by winning the InStyle award for ‘Best Dry Shampoo’ for 13 years running. Save time in the morning and avoid freezing wet hair, no one will notice your hair under your hat anyway.
  4. Sisley, Sisleya Global Anti-Age Hand Care, £92.50, http://www.liberty.co.uk
    Hands are usually crying out for some TLC after a long day out in the cold.  Sisleÿa Hand Cream’s fine, light texture is quickly absorbed and leaves no oily feeling, best of all it stops ageing in its tracks.  Continue to use it after your holiday and you will find spots being visibly reduced and the skin being much firmer.
  5. Crème de la Mer, The Eye Concentrate, £130, (15ml) www.cremedelamer.co.uk
    We know the price tag is a litle eye watering but this deeply conditioning cream softens wrinkles and stops the eye area drying out when out on the slopes.  The silver applicator feels soothing on the skin and it comes in a travel-friendly (rather beautiful) pot.
