Sally Hansen Miracle Nail Thickener

eraseIf you have soft or thin nails, it can be difficult to wear even fake nails, let alone just polish. Sally Hansen’s Miracle Nail Thickener is said to give 70% thicker nails in 4 days. With Calcium and ceramic gel, this builds up your nails so they aren’t so fragile. We liked the polish and it gave a strengthening effect instantly. However, our favorite nail strengthener is still Sally Hansen’s Double Duty Strengthening Base & Top Coat. It’s less expensive than the Miracle Nail Thicker, but we find that it gives better results!

Tip: Just being careful while washing dishes is not enough. Immersing your nails in water weakens them. Keep a couple of pairs of latex gloves under your sinks so when you’re cleaning or washing dishes, you can protect your nails.

Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 15

erase2If you have sensitive skin, a lot of the ingredients used to even skin tone may be too harsh. We tried Aveeno’s Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer, which also has an SPF 15. With soy and light diffusers, this lotion is supposed to help with blotchiness and dull skin. This moisturized really well, and actually may be a little too much for those with oily skin to use during the day. It did a really great job at evening skin tone, but didn’t make a huge impact on very dark spots. So if you have a moderate problem with blotchiness this product does the job, but you may need a more intense product for really bad hyperpigmentation.

Mustela Stretch Marks Double Action

erase2Mustela, a brand geared toward new moms, has a product called Stretch Marks Double Action. Its whole purpose is to prevent and reduce the appearance of new and recent stretch marks. It works by supporting the elasticity of the skin, moisturizing, and enhances skin renewal. As the label suggests, we didn’t see a huge improvement on older marks but we liked the consistency and thought its biggest advantage would be in preventing stretch marks. Since this formula is made with all natural ingredients, the bland scent of this product isn’t typical of baby products you’re used to.

Tip: Worried about stretch marks? There’s no way to completely avoid them after extreme weight fluctuations, so the best beauty tip is to avoid excessive weight gain by eating well and exercising.

Olay Long Live Moisture Satin Finish Lotion

eraseEven people with oily skin should wear lotion. However, many lotions are geared toward people with dry skin. Finally–Olay’s Long Live Moisture Satin Finish Lotion is perfect for oily or combination skin. It’s light-weight with a matte finish, so it’s especially great for hot or humid days. We loved this lotion’s pleasant scent and how quickly it absorbed in the skin. Also, Satin Finish Lotion seems to take away the need for a mattifier. The product’s packaging doesn’t carry on about the ingredients so we’re not sure what’s in it, we just know it works. Notably absent is an SPF or a list of antioxidants, but perhaps that’s what keeps the lotion so light.

Tip: It may be tempting to not wear lotion if you have oily skin, but keep in mind that oil is not the same thing as hydration, and your skin will produce more oil to compensate for the lack of moisture.
