Rhody-made Beauty Products to Beat the Winter Blues


After weeks of rushing about in the frosty air, there’s no better time to nurture ourselves and reset than right now. Luckily, we don’t have to look far to find the right products to replenish dry skin and hair. Think of these locally made goods as part of a post-holiday boot camp to smooth, plump, and maintain a luminous glow in the new year and beyond.

Body Butter

Warm Sand Body Butter by Shore Soap Co. is a thick body cream that is a wintertime essential for any New Englander. Formulated to help protect and repair the skin’s moisture barrier, this lightweight yet super hydrating body butter contains shea, cocoa butter, and an antioxidant infusion of flax, hemp, red raspberry, and cranberry seed oils. Bonus: the smell evokes memories of warm weather days by the beach. $32 

Body Polish

Exfoliating skin in the winter is key to a youthful glow. Say goodbye to dry, scaly skin with Juno Body Polish by Providence’s own Soulita. This nourishing body exfoliator is made with a blend of organic oils, lavender, sugar, and vitamin E. Before you hop in the shower, apply this decadent scrub all over the body and wash away. Your skin will thank you. $20 

Hair Serum

Ideal to tame frizz, boost shine, smooth dried ends, and nourish the scalp, this plant-based, lightweight multi-purpose Argan + Abyssinian Hair Serum by Botanic Providence does it all. Containing blue tansy, rosemary and lavender oils, a few drops applied to dry or wet hair will yield healthy-looking locks in 2022. $28 

Mask System

This new Beauty Glow Rx Sheet Mask System from The Peyton Co. in Warren features “beauty pills” that, when used with an activator, expand into individual sheet masks. Each treatment is packed with plant extracts, including watermelon to nourish and firm, fruit acids to soften lines and brighten, and rose hydrosol to boost hydration. Leave the sheet mask on for 15 minutes and let the elixir absorb into the skin for a dewy and smooth look that will last for days. $30

Remedy Oil

For face and body, the silky organic revitalizing Calendula Remedy Oil from Newport-based Farmaesthetics does the trick when it comes to parched, irritated skin. Made with organic calendula, sweet almond oil, and vitamin E, this luxe oil works wonders for those with sensitive skin, giving it an instant pick-me-up. It also helps heal damaged skin while leaving it smooth and supple. $26
