The Ultimate Essentials for the Winter Cozy Trend

This post is sponsored by 

Has there ever been a better trend the comfy, Winter Cozy? Sure, shoulder pads and big hair were a fun trend [and also seem to be coming back – oh no], but my ultimate favorite trend and one I hope never disappears is the winter cozy look. You know, sherpa blanket draped around cute and comfy sweats with a cup of warm tea in one hand and a book in the other. 

While blanket scarves, sherpa pullovers, and fuzzy fur-lined hats might make some winter cozy lists, I’m sharing a few different products that will help you stay right on trend this winter and I discovered them all in my latest Babbleboxx!

Hanes ComfortSoft™ EcoSmart®

The best part of the winter cozy trend starts with comfortable loungewear that is as cute as it is comfy! Hanes has been creating comfortable apparel since 1901 and the EcoSmart line is continuing that with an eco-friendly twist! The line is made from 10% recycled polyester from plastic bottles and made from 50% renewable energy sources.

I have been loving the Women’s Full-Zip Hoodie Sweatshirt as it’s perfect for wearing both indoors and out and the Cinch Bottom Leg Sweatpants are some of my new faves too! Hanes Ecosmart Sweats are definitely ultra comfort and right on cozy trend, with the added bonus of being an Energy Smart Partner.

Prince of Peace

Another aspect of winter cozy on top of staying warm is staying healthy. Ginger has been used for years, in many different cultures, as a food flavoring but also as a natural remedy because it contains numerous anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compounds beneficial to health.

Prince of Peace is using these benefits of this superfood in two amazing products that are great for year-round, but even more perfect for warming up in the winter. Their proprietary instant tea blend combines the concentrated extract of  raw ginger and the sweet taste of natural honey for a delicious, warm cup of tea that warms the body’s senses making it perfect for colder weather.

Prince of Peace Ginger Chews are also a great choice for cooler months as they combine sweet and spicy in a great tasting chew that contains all the great benefits of ginger. I love that these are individually wrapped which makes them super convenient on the go. Ginger also has the benefit of supporting digesting and can aid in comfort with stomach aches.


Speaking of staying healthy during the winter, when cold weather strikes it can wreak havoc on our immune systems. Sometimes when that happens so can cold sores. While I don’t suffer with cold sores myself, my husband does and I know just how uncomfortable they can be. That’s why I’m so glad to have Campho-Phenique Cold Sore Treatment in our medicine cabinet now.

Campho-Phenique offers maximum concentrations of both active ingredients, in an over-the-counter formula, and provides relief fast. It contains an effective topical antiseptic to help relieve pain and prevent secondary infection. And it goes on clear, quickly absorbing, to treat cold sores without showing.

Image Skincare

Cold weather can also dry out skin so a good skincare routine is definitely a part of being winter cozy. IMAGE Skincare is a new-to-me brand, powered by proven active ingredients and smart botanicals. In a beauty industry that’s complicated by unnecessary chemicals, IMAGE skincare is providing simplified products that are focused on efficacy, quality and results. 

I was sent both the ORMEDIC balancing facial cleanser and the ORMEDIC balancing gel polisher. The facial cleanser hydrates and refreshes skin while gently lathering and removing dirty, makeup, and impurities, utilizing sulfate-free cleansing ingredients. The ORMEDIC balancing gel polisher is a 3-in-1 product with physical, enzymatic and AHA
exfoliation that brightens and promotes more even skin tone, but is gentle enough for everyday use.

Alternative Apparel

Last but not least, another brand in ultimate comfort for winter coziness is Alternative Apparel. I was sent to pieces from the brand and they certainly won’t be my last!

I am completely and totally obsessed with this Cropped Waffle-Knit Tee. It’s made from a vintage thermal so it’s super soft and a lightweight material that makes it a perfect season transitional top. Right on cozy trend with it’s raw edge and cropped length, this cropped thermal tee looks perfect with high waisted jeans or comfy sweats!

Not to be outdone is the comfiest, best fitting cotton sweatshirt in my closet now – this Washed-Terry Champ Sweatshirt is the ultimate in cozy from it’s washed, vintage color to the lightweight material.

It’s the perfect length for both skinny jeans and leggings and is absolutely the ultimate essential for winter coziness. I’m already ready to add a few more colors to my wardrobe as I’ve already worn it a ton!

You can find both of these Alternative Apparel tops at your local Bloomingdale’s or online at

There you have it – those are my ultimate essentials to staying on trend with Winter Cozy this season – and for many seasons to come as I hope this trend never goes out of style! Be sure to check out my favorites and add them to your cozy favorites too!
