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.

Lush Lemony flutter

I bought this cuticle butter on a trip to London earlier this year, I went in to Lush to buy some bath bombs and got this one too. I love anything nail and nail care related and when I saw that it was lemon scented I just had to get it, because I love citrus so so much.

Like it says on the container “a little goes a long way” and it’s so true. I can already tell that it will last for a really long time, and you can’t really see that I have been using it. The product is rather thick and is therefore perfect for dry skin or cuticles.

Once you apply it to the skin it kind of melts so you don’t really need that much product. It has a lovely lemon-y scent, but I feel that the scent changes once it’s been on the skin for a while, and I’m not sure how I feel about that.

I’ve been using it really much lately since my nails, cuticles and skin around the nails are in such a bad shape after using Seche Vive.
