AVEENO Intense Relief Repair Cream is THE Solution for Winter Skin

AVEENO Intense Relief Repair Cream ($14.99) is one of the ultimate sources of relief and moisture to combat the dry skin of winter. It contains ceramides and oats, as well as shea butter; all ingredients designed to better your skin. I love Aveeno for its reliability as a standout drugstore brand that caters towards sensitive skin. When I was little, I had the worst skin ever, and my doctor always had my sister and I stock up on Aveeno products. This cream is absolutely fantastic in helping cracked, irritated skin to feel better and turn it around for the better. It has the typical Aveeno smell (which isn’t fragrant, mostly oat-y). This is a huge tub (16 oz.!) of pretty thick cream, so make sure to use it only with clean hands to ensure it’ll last you through the entire winter and then some.

Butter London Holiday Lacquer Duo #2 for Holiday Perfect Nails

Butter London Holiday Lacquer Duo #2 ($20.00) is an absolutely perfect pair of polishes for the holiday season. I love gold, and I love glittery reds. Of course, I’m head over heels (nails?) in love with this set. Chancer is a glittery, shimmery red, while The Full Monty is a semi-pale, gilded gold. It’s not a bling-bling kind of gold; it’s more subdued, but still chalked full of shimmer and shine. The gift box packaging is fun and festive, so it makes a great gift to give to your nail lacquer lovin’ pals. I must admit that I was startled by how wasteful the box is, though, so I do wish they’d reduce the size, even if it is cute.  Chancer is very similar to China Glaze’s Ruby Pumps (which I have and love), though I do feel like the glitter in Chancer is not nearly as chunky as Ruby Pumps, which makes it easier to remove. The Full Monty almost has a chrome/metallic finish, but it still has a lot of shimmer working for it, so you don’t have to worry about brush strokes showing.

Holiday 2008 Stocking Stuffers: Lush Snowcake Soap – Phenomenon or Hype?

Snowcake Soap ($6.95 for 3.5 oz.) is one of Lush’s cult-favorite products that only comes around once a year (the holiday season or winter season, whichever you prefer!). Funny enough, Lush really does know how popular this product is–in their product description, they write, “If we didn’t bring out a fresh batch of Snowcake every Christmas we’d probably be chased down the street by irate LUSH customers.” I wouldn’t be surprised at the truth of that statement! I know the lovely Muse over at Musings of a Muse stocks up on this every year, buying it by the bucket load!
