Get Polish-Ready Nails with Borghese Rejuvenata Cuticle Oil

If it weren't for the 75% off deal, I would have never stumbled across this delightful cuticle oil. It first appeared to be an overpriced clear nail polish in RiteAid, but as I observed each and every color, I came to the realization that this was not a polish but rather an oil for cuticle-rejuvination purposes. (The name clearly did not hint to that...) Ann ( and I decided to bring home little Borghese and from that moment on, my nails have changed.

While our time together has been a bit more than a day, I'm already in love. This cuticle oil absorbs with a medium time and leaves my entire nail beautiful, so I wouldn't mind leaving them naked once in a while.

The Basics:
Formula: Thin Liquid
Scent: Vanilla Almond
Cost/Availability: $8.00 for 0.4 oz
Packaging: Nail Polish Bottle w/ Nail Polish Applicator
Rating: 4.5/5 or A

Recommended Use: Brush on to cuticles and nail and massage in. Remove with soap and water or nail polish remover before applying nail laquer or let absorb and skip laquer.

Ring in Spring with Pure Spring's Strawberry and Pomegranate Hand Cream

Finding the perfect hand cream is harder than finding the perfect man. The checklist is much, MUCH longer. With PureSpring's Hand Cream, I might've just found The One.

My Hand Cream Checklist:
  • Shea butter-infused
  • Wonderful smell or no smell
  • Not expensive
  • Moisturizing
  • Jam packed with goodness!
To my luck, this hand cream has every single quality on my list, especially the 'not expensive' part.

$1.00. Four quarters. 100 pennies. 10 dimes. That's all I paid for 4.2 ounces of this sweet-scented cream.

With my Wellness+ Card, I purchased this hand cream $4 off the original price. (It is originally $5 if you're not good at math.) I chose the strawberry and pomegranate one out of three appealing scents.

Milly for Clinique at Saks Fifth Avenue!

I've been so busy with the production I'm in (Beauty and the Beast!) so posting often is a challenge.

This bonus is a $100 value, complete with a stylish bag and 7 makeup and skincare must-haves. *Drool*

I'm Ticked Pink (Grapefruit) with Burt's Bees' Newest Lip Balm!

Good morning, ladies! 
On a wonderful trip around town, my best friend Ann ( gifted me with Burt's Bees newest lip balm. It's perfect for summer in every way except for one. Unfortunately, there is no SPF for the prevention of burnt lips. All negatives aside, this balm is great! It actually hydrates, it has a wonderful grapefruit smell, and gives a beautiful shine to lips.

Fresh Picked Hand Soaps!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Apologies for being so M.I.A lately; I've been really caught up in schoolwork and well...procrastination.

Today Bath and Body Works hosted their Fresh Picked Party, and while I did not get the chance to attend, my mom and I stocked up on some hand soaps a while back.

(From left to right)
Fresh Picked Tangerines Anti-Bacterial, Fresh Picked Cherries Moisturizing, Fresh Picked Raspberries Anti-Bacterial, and Fresh Picked Watermelon Anti-Bacterial.

I personally find the Fresh Picked soaps wonderful. Few actually carry a realistic aroma, but all are fruity and juicy.

Fresh Picked Tangerines smells very real. Its scent resembles that of a mandarin, orange, or any other orange-colored citrus. It's very sweet and light.
