Autumn Hand and Nail Favourites

Hello, my Lovelies! If you are a reoccurring reader of my blog, you know I always love to share my skincare favourites with you all, but I have always seemed to avoid the topic of hand skincare! I thought that as we are now in the colder months and we have the problem of dry, chapped hands, that I would share my hand and nail favourites for the season.I hope you all enjoy ūüôā

Champneys Citrus Blush Enlivening Hand Lotion

After being gifted my first bottle of this last Christmas, it is now one of those beauty products that never leaves my bedside. First of all, for a drugstore hand cream, this just feels so luxurious and nourishing on instant application, this may have something to do with it being from an official spa range.  Secondly, the refreshing blend of citrus lemon, orange and warming cardamom is the perfect little pick me up, whether this being morning or night. And last but not least it has worked miracles for my nails, as they feel so much stronger and well looked after. I highly recommend you pick this up on your next boots trip!

RRP : £6.00 for 250ml

Neals Yard Remedy Geranium & Orange Hand Cream

Now onto something a little bit pricier and harder to get hold of, but I actually received this a few weeks back in a copy of Instyle magazine and I was ecstatic! ¬†I had already tried out their moisturiser from the same range and absolutely adored it. To me, this and the Champney’s¬†one are pretty much identical, and I think it proves that you don’t have to spend a fortune to keep your hands healthy and nourished! This is also the perfect size to throw in your handbag, and this will most certainly be replacing my Soap and Glory Hand Food.

RRP : £10.00 for 50ml

Essie Tomboy No More Nail Polish

I think ever since the end of August, when it comes to my nails I have just alternated by two shades of red polish and I’m pretty sure this will be ongoing up until Christmas! Tomboy No More is the most burgundy shade out of the two and is my favourite one as it is much more autumnal, and the longevity of the polish is phenomenal! Whether this is paired with fair skin or with a tan, it never makes me look washed out and just looks flawless. You can never go wrong with an Essie Polish!

RRP : £10.95

 Rimmel Salon Pro By Kate Nail Polish in Mars

Onto the second polish, I feel like this may be the one that takes me all the way through Christmas as this is the more classic red shade! Just like the Essie one the longevity of these polishes is insane, and even when topped with a glitter top coat there is no chipping, and it also a dream to remove as you are not left with your hands covered in a horrible red residue! This is definitely the most cost friendly of the two, and I assure you will not be able to face those Christmas parties without this on your nails!

RRP : £4.49
