Itchy Dry Skin Solutions & Giveaway





Curél® Itch Defense Skin Balancing Moisture Lotion for Dry Itchy Skin...
is a revolutionary solution to the irritation that causes itching. 
The Itch Defense moisture lotion rebalances four essential components of healthy skin, restoring skin to its natural moisture levels:
  • Humectants and Emollients boost moisturization and leave skin feeling protected
  • Natural Ceramides restore skin’s barrier function and regulate skin’s ability to hold moisture
  • Accelerated Cellular Turnover minimizes dry, flaky skin and smoothes the skin’s surface, balancing the dry skin cycle
  • Balanced pH levels return skin to a healthy equilibrium


This lotion is very hydrating without being greasy.
I've been washing my hands like crazy to prevent me from getting sick again.
After washing my hands, they get super dry, and sometimes itchy.
This definitely helps to hydrate, and you can check out their proven results on their website.



Curel Fast-Absorbing Hand & Cuticle Cream
Providing immediate healing relief to dry hands, this powerful formula includes soothing soy milk, softening monoï oil, and naturally healing vitamin E. Rough cuticles are softened with just one use, and hands stay soft and smooth - never greasy - even through several hand washings.

Cuticle Softness Improvement after Single Lotion Application

Clinical tests show an immediate improvement in cuticle softness after a single application of Curél® Targeted Therapy® Hand & Cuticle Cream.
Eight hours after application, cuticles treated with Curél® Targeted Therapy® Hand & Cuticle Cream had a softness score over two times that of the untreated cuticles*.
 *Subjects were allowed to hand wash for good hygiene, but number of washes per panelist was not captured.


My mum has really dry and cracked-skin hands because she is a hair stylist and the chemicals from the dyes, etc really dry out her skin. I gave this lotion to her and she said it is actually soothing!
And she is extremely sensitive to smells and hydrating factors.



Curel Targeted Therapy Deep-Penetrating Foot Cream
Featuring highly emollient shea butter, rich coconut milk, and naturally healing vitamin E, this cream noticeably smoothes and softens dry cracked skin in just two nights, significantly improving the look and feel of even the driest feet.

Hydration Improvement after Two Applications

As measured by a Dermalab Conductance Meter (5 replicate readings), Curél® Targeted Therapy® Foot Cream provided a hydration benefit at each of the post-application time points vs. the untreated foot.
Two days after application of Curél® Targeted Therapy® Foot Cream, feet were two times more hydrated than the untreated.
Study demonstrates improvement in hydration on heels after only 2 days of application. The difference from untreated is larger after the second afternoon.

Visible Dryness Improvement after Lotion Application

Trained observer dryness scoring of two clinical studies showed a visible improvement of skin dryness over a 2 day period as well as 7 day period with application of Curél® Targeted Therapy® Foot Cream.
 *Studies demonstrate improvement in visible dryness on heels with daily application.

Improvement in Skin Moisturization Over the Course of Two Nights

In a two-day clinical study study among women with extra-dry skin, Curél® Targeted Therapy® Foot Cream significantly increased their skin's moisture content and left their feet feeling softer and smoother in the morning.





Cosmedix Rescue Balm & Mask
This all-natural balm with cherry extracts, willow herb and shea butter works to soothe irritated and inflamed skin following resurfacing treatments. Rescue immediately calms the skin and helps accelerate post-procedure recovery, letting you achieve your new look at a faster pace.
Rescue: After cleansing with Benefit Clean or Purity Clean, apply balm as needed. For mask, spread evenly over skin and leave on for a few minutes or overnight.
Q. Is Rescue only for dry skin?
A:No. Rescue can also be used to effectively aid skin recovering from peels, laser treatments, waxing, sunburns, windburns and more.
Q. Can I leave Rescue on overnight?
A: Yes. Rescue makes a wonderful overnight mask for irritated and post-treated skin.



I admit I haven't use this over-night, which sounds intriguing.
It really hydrated my hands when I was swatching/playing around with it.
It's definitely a soothing balm/mask for irritated skin.

ClothesRacks.com Review!




Okay I know this is a beauty blog with a little bit of fashion and accessories thrown in...
But I just want to put this out there because I had a dilemma and found a company that helped me fix this  situation. So, if any of you are in this situation, I hope this review helps!

What do you do with ALL of your clothes when you DO NOT have a closet?
....
?
A clothing rack works wonders!
However, I have to say, get one that will actually HOLD all of your clothing.
I had an unfortunate incident with a cheap-plastic clothing rack.
(bought it somewhere like Target or Walmart)
Guess what happened?
It broke!
As I was looking at the pile of unorganized, jumble, mess of clothing I was so frustrated I wanted to scream!
I guess it was my bad, because I was relying on this cheap clothing rack to hold everything!
Bad mistake.
I started searching online and came across ClothesRacks.com.
And a message popped up saying "NO MORE BROKEN CLOTHING RACKS. Purchase Quality."
I knew this is what I needed!
I must say this clothing rack is pure heavy-duty metal!
And they shipped it EXTREMELY fast.
Only downside is you have to put it together, but I'll just get my boyfriend or my uncle to do it for me! lol!
By the way, these also make great space savers.


The rack I got is under the category of "Closet Racks"
Check them out here!

To vamp it up, you could wear that fun blazer (above) OR carry around one of those funky handbags!

The consistency of this product is really unique.

It's nice for dry skin (maybe some normal skintypes can use it too), but if you're oily stay away.
I love using this on my neck as well- it's soothing and very very hydrating!
