I never meant to take such a big break from blogging, but life kind of got in the way. While I still was painting my nails and posting to my Instagram, getting the energy to blog was another thing. However, I’m really going to take some time to get back into the swing of things again, and catch up on blogging.
Since the weather is now officially starting to feel much chiller, I thought I would share my Fall and Winter essentials. I don’t know about you but between the chilly days and working in retail my hands can get in rough shape. There for, I have a bevvy of products I used to just to keep ahead of rough looking cuticles and dry, dry skin.
Now, I’m sure everyone has there own routine and products that work for them. These are just the ones I use, and I like (at the moment). Things are always changing, and I’m always discovering new and awesome products that I fall in love with.
These are my on-the-go purse essentials:
Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream, Mary Kay Extra Emollient Night Cream, and Hand Cream.
I discovered Burt’s Bees Cuticle Cream last winter, and it seriously saved my cuticles during a seriously harsh winter. Not only does it smell amazing, but it makes you cuticles feel amazing and keeps them soft. Mary Kay Extra Emollient Night Cream is actually one of my favorite products for everything–I used it not just on my hands and cuticles, but as a lip balm as it infuses everything with a serious splash of moisture. It’s great and if you’ve never tried it, you must! And finally my last purse essential is hand cream. I usually carry at least two or three different hand creams on me at all times. Above is OPI Avojuice, which smells so good, and feels so good!
My at-home essentials:
Vaseline Healthy Hand and Nail, Avoplex Cuticle Oil to Go, Witchcraft Cuticle Oil.
When it comes to my favorite at home products, I have a few I use nightly. Vaseline Healthy Hand and Nail is my all time favorite hand cream ever. (I also keep a small bottle of it in my purse as well, and a bottle at work). I’ve been using it for over a year, and I love how soft it leaves my hands. It’s also improved my nail health a lot in the time I’ve been using it. My nails definitely feel stronger. Next is my Avoplex Cuticle Oil to Go which I purchased from my local Chatters after hearing good reviews online. It smells so good–I’m not sure exactly what the smell is, but it’s fruity and fresh and I love it. I apply it and my Witchcraft Cuticle Oil every night before bed, and I find I’ve had a lot less issues with hang nails or dry cuticles since I started using both together.
So these are just a couple of my favorites. I know everyone has there favorites, and I am always up for new product suggestions so if you have any that you adore, let me know! (I’ve been hearing good things about Bliss Kiss Simply Pure Cuticle & Nail Oil, so I think that is going to be one of my next purchases.)
Have a great day lovelies!
