Two Little Beauty Secrets In Little Tins - Spots & Problem Cuticle Cures!!

Really I should say three but I have already reviewed and told you about the Lush Snow Fairy Lip Tint so here are my other two essentials. Now they may not be the most attractive of tins but you should never judge a book by it's cover.

The first is from Avon - I am not a huge Avon fan their products are either amazing or sh*t! This I have had for AGES and it lasts forever, hence the bashed up tin. I sometimes get bad skin around may nails that get really sore (you all know what I mean) and this balm works wonders for it, I put it on before bed and as if by magic the soreness has disappeared by the morning....




It really does work, lets face it broken skin around your beautifully painted nails is not a good look. This stuff is the cure, it costs between £2.00-£5.00 (Avon have regular offers on so prices vary) and my handbag/makeup bag would not be complete without it.

Now onto number two.

I am very lucky I don't often get spots but when I do it will be a HUGE one somewhere wonderful like the end of my nose!! My boyfriend suffers from them due to working outside, one day I was looking online for a cream to help spots out after him trying everything from Boots, Superdrug and even the doctor!! I came across this little tin.....




Nixoderm.

I don't think you can buy it in this country but it is made by Johnson&Johnson and treats a whole load of things: Eczema, pimples, blemishes, rash, athletes foot, ringworm (gross I know). We thought we would give it a go and now after trying it I buy this for him regularly. You put it on before bed and the next day the spot has reduced the swelling and no redness at all!! It has a cooling, tingling feeling and works wonders. I get this off eBay for around the £3.00-£5.00 mark. Again it isn't the most attractive of tins but if it gets rid of spots who cares.

Have you tried any of these products?

  1. I am on a constant search for a good cuticle balm, never tried Avon, but I think I might... and I've never heard of Nixoderm, but I want a little tin for myself really bad, it sounds so good... does it have a medicinal scent to it?

  2. You definitly get the cuticle cream Lucy, it's the best I have ever tried :D And the Nixoderm doesn't smell medicinal, I actually ran to my bathroom and smelt it when I got your reply lol! It kind of smells like liquiorice-y? Weird I know, but that's what I smelt anyway haha!!
