With the chilly weather comes all sorts of fun things ... a new winter wardrobe, a brand new coat (preferably in camel). There's snowball fights and sledding, cozy scarves and even a new beret. But, unfortunately, the wind and snow also bring with it some not so desirable consequences like the sniffles, frizzy hair and the worst of the worst - dry skin!Stuff those stockings this year with Love and Toast's Mandarin Hand Cream. This natural body care brand has produced one of the loveliest scented hand moisturizers. With notes of African rooibos tea, pomegranate, neroli and orange blossom, this organic skin care product contains super-hydrating softeners like shea butter, macadamia nut, olive fruits and avocado oil. So, this winter, say good-bye to dry, flaky skin and hello to that first snowfall! Here€™s hoping for a white Christmas!Where to Buy - Cool Planet StorePrice - $8.99Who - Melimeli was the first to add the 'Love and Toast Mandarin Hand Cream' to the Hive.

You're already gorgeous, girl. Sure, it's fun to try out all these vibrant colors that are so popular right now on the beauty scene, and false lashes and other add-ons really do wonders for a flirty or sensual look. But there's something to be said for a girl with natural beauty. Save the fluttery lashes and sparkly liner for a hot night out, and go for a clean and pretty face for every day activities. The trick to applying make-up and having it look barely there, but still providing ample coverage is to play up your natural features. Soft black and dark brown eyeliners help enhance peepers, as do flake-free mascaras and eyeshadows in a nude or natural palette (think sheer golds and chocolate browns). A pale pink lip and cheek is a great way to let your pout pop and to contour the face without being obvious and keeps the 'au naturelle' appeal. So put your best and most naturally beautiful face forward and click on our slideshow to see some of our favorite 'au naturelle' beauty picks!
