  1. awesome post, feel like I should just print it out and wander around the drugstore with this as a shopping list!

    My favorite drugstore buy is good ol’ fashioned Pond’s Cold Cream. I know cold cream can get mixed reviews and all, but I like to use it to breakdown makeup and leave my skin soft. Also, I sometimes use Neosporin (or the store brand) as a cuticle cream/lotion. When I haven’t been able to stop picking at my cuticles, I use the neosporin over night and it helps to heal them and leave them soft.

    1. please do! 😉 I tried using the ponds cream and sadly it broke me out. 😦 I think it was the mineral oil, so instead I got a Boots Hot Cloth Cleanser that works really well! Try Vitamin E oil for your cuticles, works wonders for me!
