Other than being a shameless Game of Thrones reference, this facial oil balm is meant to help with serious hydration in the season of cold weather and drying radiators.
Winter is Coming is packed with Camellia (Tsubaki) Oil (skin-identical, permeates immediately deep into skin), Argan Oil (helps in reducing the wrinkles and softening the skin), Rosehip Oil (Helps restore skin's barrier functions, act as an anti-inflammatory, reduce scaling, and soothe dry skin and itchiness), Borage Oil, (reduces redness, loaded with Ferulic Acid, a potent antioxidant). Additionally it contains Imperial Cylindrica Extract--a plant native to warm regions in West Africa that survives well in flooded environments, giving rise to raised hydration levels even after 24 hours; and Amazonian Lily Extract which is nourishing deeply moisturizing and conditioning.

Love the name for this and it is quite aptly named, as it's wonderful for winter! My skin is more on the dry side so this feels rejuvenating. I'd recommend applying it at nighttime since it is pretty thick and can take some time to absorb, but I wake up with my skin glow-y and refreshed. I love the light citrus-y scent too!

A beautiful winter!
If the phrase "winter is coming" makes you think of medieval wars and conflict, think again! This winter is a beautiful winter! And I love it in the summer, too! I use this at night before bed a couple of times a week, at the very end of my routine. It smells divine, and is a very thick serum--i.e. when I go to bed, it is still on my face. Takes a long time for it to absorb. But when I wake up in the morning, my skin is so fresh and divine. Highly recommend. This is a mainstay for me, winter or not!

Not just for winter!
I have dry, flaky, insanely sensitive skin. I use Winter is Coming all year round to seal in all the SB goodness I use at night. I love the way it smells and how it sinks right into my skin!

delightful nighttime moisturizer
I completely love this stuff. I use it as a final moisturizer before bed year-round (I have dry skin). It has such a beautiful smell and feel! And I wake up looking refreshed! Love love love.

Delightful in every way
I tried Winter is Coming as part of the REVIVE set (my intro to SB). As promised, Winter is Coming is gentle and deeply hydrating. Its scent is light and, to me, delicious and intriguing (my first encounter with yuzu). A little goes a very long way -- it outlasted the other travel-sized products in REVIVE by a couple of weeks. Winter is Coming helped bring my skin to the calmest state I have ever experienced. Thank you SB!
