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?

Holy Grail: Cuticle oil

A very important step in getting beautiful and healthy nails is to use cuticle oil! I know that some may think that a cuticle oil is a bit expensive, but it’s really not because it will last for a very long time. I use mine several times during the day and it lasts for months. Since I’ve started to use cuticle oil regularly I’ve seen a big difference with my nails.

Last spring my nails were short and kept breaking and peeling. I tried a few different nail strengtheners with mixed results. I also started to use cuticle oil much more than before and that made my nails (and cuticles) really happy. You have to be patient though, because it takes time before you see a difference!

My favorite cuticle oil is Avoplex from OPI. I have one bottle at home, one on my desk at work and in my bag I have an Avoplex cuticle oil to go. I like the smell of the oil and how it feels on my cuticles, I doesn’t leave me greasy but it still moisturizes.
