It’s rare for a beauty item to be both luxurious and totally utilitarian, but lotion bars fit the bill. They’re easy to carry in your purse and you can also take them with you on a plane, since they’re solid. Spread them around the house–on your nightstand, on the bathroom sink–for easy access whenever. Your skin will appreciate the way these rich bars help lock in moisture to keep your skin smooth and hydrated during the harsh winter months.
