Best Bet: Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Kit

We’ve been battling winter weather with a barrage of beauty remedies — exfoliants for flaky skin, masks and toners to soothe dryness, and constant doses of moisturizer. Kiehl's new Ultra Facial Cream Starter Kit combines all the necessities into an affordable three-in-one set. (The travel-friendly 1.7-ounce sizes let you try out products without committing to a $50 tub.) The foamy, sugar-derived cleanser rinses away grime and excess oil without stripping wind-battered skin, while the toner refines pores with natural emollients like apricot-kernel oil and avocado oil. Most important, the cold-weather-targeted facial cream hydrates skin without feeling oily, by far outlasting our go-to drugstore brand.

Ultra Facial Cream Starter Kit, $24.50 at Kiehl's or online.
