I have been a serious beauty addict for quite a while now.
I love being introduced to new brands that I haven’t tried before (who doesn’t?).
And my makeup, skincare and nail polish collection would put a department store to shame.
In fact, I consider myself to be a bit of a beauty expert. So here is a list of some of the best discoveries that I’ve made recently that I just had to share.
1. Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream.
This is one of those cult items often spoken about in beauty mags and much loved by celebs. Burt’s Bees is an iconic brand offering products that really work.
I got my hands on the Lemon Butter cuticle cream a while ago, and to be frank, I then threw it in my bathroom cupboard thinking “I’ll use that one day”.
I didn’t think I needed a cuticle cream. I mean, in terms of the surface area of a cuticle versus the rest of the bod, surely no one would notice my cracked, disheveled paws. Ummm, wrong.
Once the manicurist had shamed me with her eyes on more than one occasion, I knew I should probably invest some love in them.
If your nails are weak or dried out, or like me, you’ve just ended a short lived affair with acrylic nails, this will be your new best friend.
I now keep one in the car, one in my bag and one at my desk. And the smell…. droooooool. Reminds me of lemon tarts without the calories. Just don’t eat it.
