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?
A few of my products just happened to runt out at the same time, so I thought I’d share with you what I think about them. And if I will I purchase them again…
L’Occitane – Shea butter hand cream
I really liked this hand creme! It has a nice subtle smell and it moisturizes your hands without leaving them feeling greasy. This size (30 ml) is perfect for the handbag, or just to try the product like I did. I’m pretty sure I will purchase this hand cream again and I probably would’ve already done it, if I didn’t have so many new hand creams at home already. 🙈
OPI – Nail Envy
I always use one coat of Nail Envy before I use a base coat, and I think that works good for me. It keeps my nails strong and since I practically have two coats of base coat, that protects my nails from staining pretty well too. I had already purchased a new bottle before I ran out of this one.
OPI – Avoplex cuticle oil to go
This one I keep in my handbag and it’s the perfect size and design to use ‘on the go’ as the name applies. Avoplex is my favorite cuticle oil, I don’t know how many bottles I’ve used up by now, so of course I had already purchased a replacement for this one.
Essie – many many mani
This is a (quite) new favorite for me. I love the smell and how easily it sinks in to the skin, you can read more about it here. I even had to cut the tube in two to be able to get it all out! I haven’t found this hand creme anywhere in Sweden yet, so I’ll make sure to buy it next time I’m abroad (which will be in three weeks).
Have you tried any of these products?
