As much as I try to limit my shopping habits here we are, at New in #4 :)
In Dm I found the new versions of tin creams, Balea pflegecreme Frangipani and coconut and Balea pflegecreme Peach and papaya. Frangipani and coconut has a very generic warm floral scent which I'm not the biggest fan of. Peach and papaya is a true winner here, it smells like a tropical cocktail and I can't stop smelling it. I will use both creams as hand creams as they are heavily scented. At my last trip to Dm I also picked up Balea lavender bath bomb. It doesn't produce bubbles but infuses the water with oils. The scent is not a true lavender one but still nice. The bath bomb colors the water in a beautiful blue-violet color and the lavender flower parts are not difficult to remove after you're done with your bath.

My name is Ina and I'm a nailoholic. I love painting my nails and I find it to be a great source of relaxation. In fact I get nervous if a shade is on my nails for too long. But i do understand that a.) not everyone like painting their nails and b.) has (or better yet makes) time to do it. I sometimes find myself in the latter. Sometimes my work demands of me to spend a lot more than 8 hours a day wearing latex gloves which makes my hands sweat and the polish just peels of my nails in large chunks. Lab work can be hard when things don't go like you expected and you have deadlines to catch. Soon you can find yourself going to work with no makeup, hair full of dry shampoo and wearing leggings but you've been working for 10+ days straight and it's Sunday so you tell yourself that it's ok and that you nobody will be in the lab to see you. As superficial as it sounds, in those moment a glimpse of your polished nails can make you feel like a human again. But what good is that if you know that by the end of the day you mani will be ruined and you won't have the energy to redo it every day?

Today I have a quick review of this little gem - Avon Nail experts Advanced mira-cuticle vanishing complex* (now that's a mouthful :)) Since I have a lot of cuticle care products this one had to wait quite a while before I started testing it. It claims to reduce, minimize, restore and vanish cuticles with the help of lactic acid (2nd place on the INCI list), With Fall and colder temperatures my cuticles tend to get extra dry so I thought it would be the perfect time to put it to the test.
