May is a special time where we get to celebrate being a woman if we are mothers, or spoil the mothers we are lucky to have in our lives. What better way to tell your friends and family you appreciate them than you give them something they can really indulge in and make them feel rejuvenated. Figs & Rouge nourishing and soothing, multi-tasking hand cream and lip balms will do just that by revitalizing their dry hands and lips. With brightly colored fun packages, these are just the items to get anyone's lips and skin back to their smooth, natural conditions.

The Figs & Rouge hand cream uses a unique non-greasy formula to smooth and soften your hands and give you the youthful appearance that your hands should all have. The rich formula immediately works to repair cuticles and nourish finger nails. The coco rose scent has a light and refreshing smell that will last for hours without ever smelling overpowering. This cream is smooth going on, and you only need a small amount to go a long way. The cream absorbs into your skin and cuticles quickly and will leave your hands with a very hydrated, non- greasy feeling.

Made from cocoa butter, ginseng and algae, the cream not only moisturizes, but is multi-tasking by protecting your hands from being further damaged by weather and other elements. The packaging is fun, bold and beautiful and will fit perfectly in any purse to go everywhere with you or would make an excellent gift for our mom's on mothers' day.

Hand cream and lip balm, two items that have been a necessity for me during these colder, seemingly never ending, winter months. So when this next duo came into the office, I had no reservations in checking it out. 

EraClea Simply Perfect Hand Cream 3.2.14EraClea Simply Perfect Hand Cream

I use hand creams a lot. I have one in my bag, on my dresser, and on my desk. With the cold weather outside, and the heat inside, my skin (especially my hands) gets very dry. Needless to say, I've tried a good amount of hand creams. The EraClea Simply Perfect Hand Cream is a great hand cream to add to my collection. This hand cream contains lipids & vitamins so that it hydrates for up to 8 hours. With this intense hydration, the cream still absorbs quickly and does not leave a greasy residue. It's not too thick and spreads easily while still providing soothing moisture. EraClea uses the HylaSpongeSystem in this hand cream, a hyalronic acid complex, that leads to the smooth, hydrated and non greasy results. It's also the perfect size to throw in my bag and retrieve whenever I need it!

EraClea Ever Moist Lip Balm 3.2.14EraClea Ever-Moist Lip Balm

This a trusty lip balm and will get the job done. This lip balm will repair those dry and chapped lips; shea butter, jojoba & antioxidants, condition your lips. You're left with lips that look and feel smooth and are hydrated and supple. What I liked about this lip balm is that even though it's more of a liquidy balm, I still felt that it was conditioning and stayed on my lips. Other liquidy balms can sometimes feel like they fall apart on your lips and disappear. But with the hand cream & this balm EraClea provides two trusty products you can count on!

I've talked in the past about the importance of taking care of your skin, especially when it becomes susceptible to outside factors like the weather and allergens. These sometimes harsh elements eventually break down the skin’s protective barrier leading to sensitive and dry skin.

Healthy skin has a hydrolipid film covering the surface of the skin called the acid mantle. The acid mantle is slightly acidic (PH 5.5). It’s essential to maintain this PH on the skin’s surface and Sebamed has been making soap-free products since the 1960’s which match this acid mantle and maintain the PH level while healing and protecting even the most sensitive skin (like mine).

Sebamed Hand and Nail BalmHere are a couple to try this fall season:

Sebamed hand & nail balm for sensitive skin  

  • Quickly absorbs
  • Non-greasy
  • Deep moisturizing
  • Enriched with vitamin B5

I used this daily towards the end of the summer and saw a noticeable difference in my nails. Rubbing directly in the nail and cuticles, it really strengthened and softened them.

Your Cuticles are extremely important to the healthy growth of your nails. The cuticle covers the base of your nail where the growth is generated. That being said, it’s very important that the growth area under your cuticles stays healthy.  

 1) Practice gently pushing your cuticles back:

Don’t push too hard as you want to avoid injury or irritation to your nail growth area. Some people use a wooden orange stick. I use a soft emery board that was designed to buff the nail. I gently push back on my cuticles once a week when I do my manicure.  

 2) Keep your cuticles soft:

The cuticle is just skin. If your cuticles appear dry or cracked, they need to be moisturized. Any lotion you would use on your hands you can use on your cuticles. Just add a dab of your favorite lotion to your cuticle area and gently massage in. When I wash dishes I wear gloves. The gloves keep my hands / cuticles away from the dehydrating agent in the dish detergent. If you use nail polish remover make sure that its acetone free. The acetone is a drying agent that can wreak havoc with your cuticles.

Primavera Hand & Nail Cream is the secret to keeping your cuticles soft. When I wrote the blog on how 04192013 Primavera Hand and Nail Cream Certified Fabulousto improve the appearance of cuticles, I mentioned the need to keep your cuticles hydrated. Primavera Hand & Nail Cream does a fantastic job keeping my cuticles looking their best.  I keep a tube on my night stand and use it every evening. I dab a bit of cream on each cuticle and just gently massage in. This cream works wonders.

The essential Ginger and Lime oils leave your hands feeling energized and refreshed. The scent is just delightful! The Jojoba oil works well as a moisturizer to help soften cuticles. Primavera is 100% natural with no animal testing. 

I liked that the cream absorbes quickly and there's no greasy feeling. The overall results are fantastic! 

Remember take time to enjoy life!

COOLA has developed an extraordinary delightful and natural hand lotion bar. I tried the GrapefruitPeppermint all natural shea butter Hand Lotion Bar and fell in love. This is my first time working with a hand lotion bar and I found the experience therapeutically enriching.

 

COOLA Grapefruit Peppermint Hand Lotion Bar has become a “must have”. During the winter 04112013 Certified Fabulous Coola Grapefruit Peppermint Hand Lotion Barmonths my knuckles become very dry and cracked. COOLA has designed this Hand Lotion Bar to help hydrate your hands, and they have succeeded in their endeavor. My knuckles were so cracked it actually hurt to bend my fingers. The first time I used this product the results were visible. The hand lotion bar actually appeared to be erasing the dry lines and cracks. I worked the product into my knuckles every evening for a few weeks and the cracks literally disappeared. The warmth from my knuckles turned the ingredients into a deeply moisturizing and soothing balm that healed the cracks. After applying the Hand Lotion Bar to my knuckles and rubbing it in, the palms of my hands also benefited, they too felt wonderfully soft.

 

 COOLA developed this product using all natural ingredients. The Hand Lotion Bar is designed so you use only the amount necessary, there’s no waste. COOLA packaged this product so it’s perfect when you’re traveling.
