EMPTIES: May 2022
If I’m going to be honest – as usual – I almost didn’t use up anything before the month was up. However, thank goodness for an extended holiday weekend. So, keep reading to see the products that I was able to use up last month.
Over the past few months, my skin has been going through it! First, winter did not come to play to year, because we had cold, rigid temps and multiple snow falls. Plus, the cold temperatures acted like they didn’t want to leave. My poor skin got so dry and I was going through all the products that had that claimed to “moisturize” and/or “hydrate”. Now, they did do all that, but I needed to one extra step to make sure they worked – a skin balm.
Personally, for many reasons, I think everyone needs a skin balm in their personal skincare arsenal. The first reason that you may need a skin balm is if your skin tends to get drier in the winter and hard to hold moisture. Once you apply your moisturizer, you can apply a thin layer of a creamy skin balm to help seal the moisture and protect your skin barrier. At night, you can use a thicker one to help seal the moisture and your nightly skincare products. A few months ago, this became a skincare trend known as slugging. Finally, a skin balm helps protect and heal your skin, which is ideal for people with sensitive skin.

Getting my nails done has been one of my favorite acts of self-care, ever since junior high. Although I love getting them professionally done, I love to do them myself. Actually, I haven’t had my nails professionally done since before the pandemic began back in March 2020. My last appointment was on the Saturday before the world started to collapse. So, I’ve been doing my own nails exclusively for 2 years, which has allowed me to discover some of the best nail products.
Please keep reading to see what products I’ve been discovering and loving.
