Dreamy Cream with LUSH

14 Aug

Do you remember your dreams?  I usually do after I first wake up, but after I get up and begin the day, they somehow disappear from my memory.  Although, there are a handful of dreams that I remember that I had when I was a kid.  How is that possible?  Maybe Leonardo DiCaprio and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are walking around in my head, messing with my subconcious…

Well, Inception talk aside, lets talk about a dream what I won’t be forgetting anytime soon.   Continue reading

How To Make Your Own Hand Lotion

10 Jul

I used to be obsessed with the $30 L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream until I discovered, I can make my own hand cream at home!

Nope.  This hand cream requires ingredients that you can find at your local drugstore.  And the best part?  It’s fabulous.

3 simple ingredients, 1 effective moisturizer.  Check it out!

Hand Cream Haul

15 Nov

I’m somewhat addicted to hand creams.  There’s just something about having soft hands and a nice manicure that makes me feel ultra feminine.  My mission to find the best lotion to make my phalanges feel like butta has led me to this post.

Here’s a large part of my collection, just to give you an idea of how much research I’ve done.

 I did include my favorite hand treatment in this photo because the lotion (the last step of the treatment) was taken into consideration for this post. However, since this is strictly about hand creams, the entire treatment was not taken to account.  A hand treatment post is sure to follow though 🙂

Out of all the handcreams out on the market, it’s hard to figure out which ones to buy.  I typically purchase mine based upon reviews and price.  There were certain things I liked about each one of these, and certain ones that I didn’t like.  I’m not going to go over each lotion and salve individually, I’m just going to give you my two favorites, a budget friendly one and a high end one.
