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?
I have tried a lot of hand creams, and I like to try new ones when the old ones are empty. But I have a few that I always end up buying again and again. Avoplex from OPI and Many many mani from Essie are two of them.
Both hand cremes smell lovely and they sink into the skin really fast while still keeping the hands moisturized. They are my favorite hand cremes to use during the day, since they don’t leave your hands greasy. The only downside is that I can’t find Many many mani anywhere in Sweden, so I always have to stock up when I’m abroad.
Which hand creme is your favorite?
Autumn is approaching and it’s time to start thinking about taking extra good care of your skin. My hands easily get very dry (especially during autumn and winter) but I have found the perfect couple to keep my hands nice and smooth.
Rituals… Miracle balm & Miracle scrub
I first bought this hand creme around Christmas last year, and I think this one that I’m using right now is my third. It is very thick and nourishing and the perfect hand creme to use before you go to sleep. I think it is a bit too thick to use during the day since it takes a while for it to sink into the skin. On the back of the product it says “for extra dry hands and can be used as a night mask”, and last night I actually used it as a night mask. I drenched my hands in it right before I went to sleep and when I woke up my hands were oh so soft.
This scrub is the best, it makes your hands so smooth. If you haven’t tried a hand scrub before make sure to get one (this one). I like to use it once or twice per week, but I’m thinking that maybe I will use it more often when it gets colder outside.
The scrub and balm are both really good products, but when you use them together they are amazing! My hands love them so much!
