Necessities at work

I’ve mentioned before that I easily get very dry hands, even more so during fall/winter. Therefore it’s important for me to moisturize my hands after every time I’ve washed them, and at work is no exception. These are all the products that I keep in my workspace.

Since I try a lot of different hand care products all the time, the products vary every now and then. But right now this is what it looks like. Plus at work is a really good place to try new stuff.

Right now I have three hand cremes, but I usually have two. It’s always good to have options. And besides two of them are small sizes, so they’ll get used up pretty quick.

I have one cuticle oil, one mini bottle of Seche vite for emergencies, a nail scissors, two mini crystal files (the one from Essie is a bit rougher than the one from OPI) as I said options are always good. And lastly I have two different lip balms depending on what scent I want, pink grapefruit or mint.

What products do you keep at your desk?

Empties #6

This time it’s all about the hands, feet and nails. A few of these products are old favorites that I always have at home, and some of the products are just meh…

Burt’s Bees – Peppermint foot lotion

Why does almost all foot creams smell of peppermint? I wish that this foot cream would have been a bit more moisturizing and nourishing. I like the Coconut foot cream from Burt’s Bees much more. My boyfriend hated the scent of this product so he is really happy now that it’s all used up, and I’m not allowed to buy it again…😉

Burt’s Bees – Lemon butter cuticle cream

First of all, this cuticle cream smells divine! I’m a sucker for lemon so this is just right up my alley. I keep this next to my bed, and use it every night before I go to bed. It is just great for dry cuticles. This is a product that I always have at home.

OPI – Natural nail base coat

This is my favorite base coat. I don’t know how many bottles of this I’ve used up by now, but it’s a lot.

OPI – Avoplex Nail & cuticle replenishing oil

Avoplex is my go to cuticle oil. I love everything about it. I always have one at home, one at work and one ‘on the go’ version in my handbag.

Dermalogica – Multivitamin hand and nail treatment

I really did not like the scent of this hand creme, it smells like seaweed. I’m glad that it was just 15ml and that I got it in a gwp. I can’t really say if it is good or not, since it took me like eight months to use it all up. And no it’s not super economical, I just didn’t want to use it, that’s why it took so long.

It’s that time again!? Well most of these products are travel sizes so I’m blaming it on them being so small…

Burt’s Bees – Coconut foot cream

This foot cream is really thick and moisturizing. It smells of coconut, which is really nice and a change from most foot creams since they smell of peppermint (why is that?). My feet have gotten really soft from using this, so I’m definitely gonna keep on buying it!

By Terry – Baume de rose

I have been using Baume de rose before, but not this bottle with an applicator. I actually prefer this container more, since it feels a bit more hygienic, rather than the jar. It is a bit expensive but it does wonder for your lips so I’m gonna keep on buying it. At first I was a bit sceptic to the rose scent, but I have actually started to like it.

The Body Shop – Shea body butter

Shea is one of my favorite scents from The Body Shop, I love the smell of it so much! I brought this travel size body butter with me to London and it lasts about a week.

Mineral Beauty System – Dead sea bath salt

Eucalyptus scented bath salt that leaves the water green. It smells really lovely and the minerals makes the skin feel really soft. Though I prefer bath bombs or bubble baths but once in a while it’s nice with a “simple” bath, and the smell is really nice.
