Winter Saviours: Body, Hands & Nails


Following my Winter Skincare Saviours post, I thought I'd continue the theme with some of my body, hand and nail rescues. There seems to be no better feeling than a long soak in the tub, followed by a slathering of my favourite lotions and potions before snuggling down for the night..

My latest go-to bath products are the Aromatherapy Associates Bath & Shower Oils. I've got four miniatures from the Essential Travel Oils but both Revive Evening and Relax Deep set me up for a deep sleep, plus only two capfuls is enough to create a heavenly, moisturising dip and fill your bathroom with glorious scents. Showers are just as luxurious thanks to the L'Occitane Almond Shower Oil which just whiffs of cherry bakewells. It lathers up into a milky consistency and instantly transforms flaky skin from drab to fab!

To seal the scent on my skin even longer, I've been reaching for the L'Occitane Almond Supple Skin Oil - spritz it on, skin drinks it up! It sinks in so quickly without leaving a slick surface residue and keeps skin moisturised for the longest time possible. I prefer to apply this before bed so it's able to work it's magic through the night. My hands seem to get it the worst this time of year and so Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment Cream is currently keeping my mitts moisturised. It sits on my desk during the day then transfers to my bedside at night when I coat it on before I sleep. Lastly, a drop of OPI Avoplex Nail & Cuticle Replenishing Oil is rubbed into my finger tips - cracked, breaking, flaking nails, it's an ongoing dilemma during the colder months but this helps keeps my talons strong and my cuticles soft. 

These hydration wonders will keep me going until Spring is upon us, which quite frankly couldn't come soon enough but in the meantime I'll be well and truly oiled up for a while! 

What are your dry skin saviours?

  2. Thank you so much for these posts - my skin will thank you later! I'll keep an eye out for the L'Occtaine oil, I really dislike feeling greasy.

  4. Yes I agree, your reviews are excellent. I believe you also got the Almond Body creme, how did you like that? Would you recommend it? PS: I had the Almond Shower Oil which I love, but had it only for about a week, as the Hubby used it all up, and so quickly ...:-)

    1. Thanks Rebekka! Yes I did - didn't want to include it in this as well, thought that might have been a L'Occitane overload but I'll keep you updated! Oh noo! I keep everything hidden haha ;-)

  5. I cannot wait to try out this Almond Shower Oil, you've got me so intrigued! I work near a L'Occitane, so I will stop in later today after I get off work. I tend to dawdle in the shower, so tight, dry skin is something I'm far too familiar with. Hopefully this will bring me some relief! x
