I’m back from camping today and I’m so happy to be home. 🙂 If you read my camping rant post you will probably be relieved to know that Bubba did ride in the trailer (in his kennel of course) and it was soooo nice. Helped me arrive much less grumpy than usual, and I’m sure it was a lot comfier for him as well. We had nice weather, had a relaxing time and stayed up till day light. 🙂 I hope you all had a nice weekend and took a minute to appreciate all the veterans and current soldiers and their families. ❤
Since my skin got dried out from camping I thought I'd share with you some of the products I like to use. Below you'll see the stack of salves/ creams/ etc that I just keep by my bedside!
From top to bottom, left to right they are: Dionis Blue Ridge Wildflower goats milk cuticle cream, Burt’s Bees Almond Milk beeswax hand creme, A&D ointment in an old lipgloss tub, JR Watkins aloe and green tea hand and cuticle salve, Original Badger Healing Balm, CND solar oil cuticle oil, Burt’s Bees lemon butter cuticle cream, and good old petroleum jelly. I use all these sporadically. The one I use the most is my Badger Balm (I LOVE this stuff) but I use all of them whenever the mood strikes me. I like oils and creams/cremes/salves because they stay on my skin longer and really make an impact. I don’t mind if they’re kind of thick or oily feeling because I put it on before bed and just let it soak in all night. I have personally found that when I’m using these products and keeping my cuticles hydrated and healthy, not only do my nails LOOK so much better (let’s all admit it- crusty cuticles look sick) but also I swear my nails grow faster. I don’t know a lot about nail anatomy but I feel like it makes a huge difference. Plus, the smell of these products is so good it’s like aromatherapy as I drift off to sleep. Right now I’m itching to get this post done so I can apply my chosen product of the night (Badger sleep balm) and smell it. In fact, I’m gonna wrap this up and do a separate post on all my Badger balms later so I can use them now. I love this sleep balm so much I can’t even bear to wait.
What do you use on your cuticles? Do you stick with one product or do you like to have a variety to choose from like me? Have you tried Badger Balm? How about the Dionis goats milk stuff? That was my favorite till I discovered Badger Balm. Badger wins out because all of their products smell are organic. And they’re fantastic!!! Till next time, thanks for reading and Happy Polishing!
