So it seems like my theme last month was dry skin. I mean dry skin everywhere! My whole body basically from head to toe is dry. All of my favorite products from last month are meant to help with dry skin, so lets see what have been my favorites!
First up, we have the Shea Body Butter from The Body Shop. This is one of their really big tubs of body butter that they carry in my store. There are only a few scents in this larger size, but the Shea in particular keeps my skin so hydrated in this nasty, cold weather. We've had snowstorm after snowstorm here, and it's been freezing cold at night, therefore my skin has been a dry, crackly mess! I slather this stuff on after I take a shower. It goes on my arms, legs, stomach, and I even have my husband get my back for me. I've never had dry skin like this before, but I don't need alot of this, so I'm hoping the massive tub lasts me a while!
Next, we have another amazing product from The Body Shop, and that's their Hemp Hand Protector. Best. Hand cream. Ever! I kid you not, this stuff is fantastic! It is a bit heavy and it can just sit on your skin for a little while, but I pretty much only use this before bed, and when I wake up my hands feel so incredibly soft and hydrated. This hand cream is great if you have a job that requires alot of hand washing, or you just work alot with your hands. I work retail, so this stuff is magic in a tube for me when I come home after washing my hands all day with harsh soap. I can't get enough of this stuff!
My last favorite is the Rosebud Strawberry Lip Balm and moisturizer. My poor lips have been so dry and they peel all the time from being so dry. I was looking in my stash for a lip balm to use at night before bed, and this one jumped out at me. I had purchased this from Sephora ages ago and forgot about it. I'm so glad I'm using this now! It makes my lips feel much softer, it takes away the peeling and it makes them feel a bit more plump than normal too.
That's everything! I know it wasn't much, but with it being freezing, I haven't been really playing with makeup or doing anything fancy with my routine. Even the water in the shower gets freezing cold within 10 minutes! Hopefully March is a bit warmer and nicer to us here in Pennsylvania!
What were some of your favorites in February?
PS. Don't forget my blog sale I have going on! There are lots of good products!
