With so many haircare, makeup, and skincare products hitting shelves throughout the month, it's full-time job keeping up, not to mention figuring out what to try and what to skip.

The good news is Farmacy is adding a warming, hydrating honey face mask to its collection that's a great option for dry, flaky winter skin.

As for hair, John Frieda's refreshed Frizz Ease Serum will come in handy for smoothing hat hair and Neutrogena's Anti-Dandruff Shampoo Collection is ideal for anyone who deals with a dry scalp during the cold weather.
