February Favorites!

I haven't done a beauty post in forever it feels like! So I thought what better way to finally do a beauty post on my favorite items for February. I feel like this post should be called shower edition, or bath edition. A lot of my favorite things centered around products for my sensitive skin. My eczema flares up at certain times during the year, and these really cold temps have definitely not helped matters at all.

Products for Sensitive Skin

What to Use for Eczema

Shower Favorites

Gold Bond Medicated Extra Strength Lotion - I actually found this stuff on accident. My eczema was bothering me so bad, and I didn't have my normal lotion with me when we were at a family member's house. This was all they had so I used it. I can't express how much I LOVE this stuff! On your extra dry and itchy spots, it creates this minty tingly feel that stops the itch completely, and hydrates my skin so well. Within several hours, my skin already looks better. If you suffer from really dry skin or eczema, I highly recommend this. 

Schick Sensitive Skin Razor - I've never really tried a razor made for sensitive skin, but last month I took the plunge. I do think it does help relive some irritation that I get from shaving, but I can't say it relieves all of it. I do think I'll repurchase this in the future, but it wasn't a lifesaver like the Gold Bond by any means.

Garnier Fructis Damage Repair Deep Conditioner - I know I have talked about this on the blog before but I rediscovered it again last month. Using this one a week really adds some moisture back into my hair, and the best part is that it doesn't break the bank.

Pixi Glow Tonic - For some reason this dry weather has decided to make my skin break out more, so I have relied on this heavily. It's almost completely gone, and I plan to repurchase this as well. It's not extremely cheap, but it really does help clear my face up. This isn't always available in stores, so I get mine online a lot. 

Aroma Scents Cherry Almond Soap - I asked for this for Christmas, because I love the cherry almond scent. I ended up loving this soap from the etsy shop and would love to buy some other products from their shop. It seems to be much gentler on my skin - a lot of Bath and Body products irritate it so easily. I'm on my last bar and plan to check out some of their other scents soon!

I would love to hear what your February Favorites were!



  1. I hear you with the eczema this time of year, this weather is not helping! My hands have been killing me, itchier then ever that lotion sounds great for that!
