Hand and Nails
Please tell me I’m not the only one addicted to the famous Soap & Glory scent? I just love taking big sniffs of this stuff, it’s like crack I tell you! I stock up on the shower gel like no one’s biz because it smells so incredible (I sometimes wash my hair with it too shhhh!).
My second go to item is the Soap & Glory Wash Your Hands Of It Hand Wash. Hey, the next best thing is having Soap & Glory scented hands loves it!
Does anyone even have a name for what this smells like? It’s kinda a bit muscular isn’t it? I can’t even describe it, just get to Target (or Boots) and sniff it!
Soap & Glory Wash Your Hands Of It is made with shea butter for a soothing hand wash hey it even has built in skin conditioners! It’s made with dry hands in mind as it’s meant to sooth, moisturize, and not dry out hands.
But it’s the smell that gets this Muse every time…oh that incredible smell…I wish I could describe it but words fail me, it’s hard to make this Muse speechless.
It could be considered on the expensive side as it is $9.99 USD for an 8.4oz size and I tell ya the way this Muse washes her hands that could last two days at most. But I think it’s a worth it indulgence. By the way the cute retro packaging doesn’t hurt either!
Go have a sniff at Target and come back and tell me if you don’t fall for it quick! Total Muse Approval for purchase.
The Muse recently discovered Philip B products and just had to share the joy! Philip B has an extensive line of products that cater to all parts of the body including hands, face, and hair. No spot left behind here peeps! I’ve been test driving a few bits from the line out this past week and I can honestly say I’m in love, with Philip B,
hello gorgeous wanna go out sometime?
Oh wait sorry I did also mean the products, honest. Like the Philip B Hand and Body Creme, hello soft skin!
Jump head for the good word!
The Muse loves products that are multitasking. Take for example the Philip B Hand & Body Creme. W00t! Simplify my moisturizing experience and I’ll heart you forever. One product that I can use on my hands or my body. Loves it!
I tried our two of the hand & body cremes available one of which was the Philip B Cucumber & Blue Orchid Creme. Enriched with cucumber, vitamins A, B5, and E this one is fully loaded to tighten and strengthen your skin. Blue Orchid gives this interesting hand and body lotion a slightly floral smell but there is no question that the cool, crispness of cucumber definitely dominates here. The formula absorbs quickly and gives skin a nice, cool drink to keep it moist and nourished!
I also tried out Philip B Lovin’ Hand & Body Creme which happens to be my favorite simply because for some odd reason or another it reminds me of McLovin’
I dunno must be my weird and twisted mind, my mind works in mysterious ways. But anyway! This one is a shea butter and coconut oil mix which is enriched with vitamins E and B5. I like this one best simply because it smells so lovely, not what you’d think McLovin’ would smell like by the very way. It’s quite crisp with a hint of green, fresh and floral-like. This is a tiny bit heavier when compared to the Cucumber and Blue Orchid Creme which could be it’s base of shea butter so it’s rather ideal for dry, chapped skin, pretty much perfect for me as my skin could use the extra McLovin’ after the harsh winter! Likey!
All in all I think Philip B makes a rather great beauty discovery! The Muse never tried before and she’s liking what she’s trying so far. Next on my list is to get me some of that Philip B Chocolate Milk Body Creme, whoa!

You probably noticed the Muse doesn’t do many nail posts around here which brings me to today’s Musings of the Day!
Are you a nail girl? Do you love painting your nails? Going to the salon to have ‘em done?
Tell me about it and jump ahead for my reply!
Nope, the Muse isn’t a nail girl. She has a nasty habit of biting her nails plus she rarely paints ‘em! Gasp! Horror! I do try to make time for a mani but for the most part my nails are polish-free. I’m so jealous of people who have pretty nails and paint ‘em all pretty. Sad sigh!
It’s probably the one area of my life that I don’t pay alot of attention too. I’m all about cosmetics but I’m def not a nail girl!
How about you?
The Muse’s hands happen to be as soft as a baby’s behind but not in the Winter….ugh they get rough, dry, and I get gross hanging cuticles…all sorts of chaos going on when the colder weather sets in! Terrible! I literally have to stock up on masses of Hello Kitty bandages because I can’t resist the evil temptation of picking my cuticles!
The past few days instead of pouring gobs of moisturizer on my hands I decided to use Yes to Carrots Pampering Hand & Nail Spa. Prior to moisturizing my hands I use this and I’m back to having baby butt smooth hands and nails minus dryness and hang nails! I can even skip moisturizer if I want as the product moisturizes my hands wonderfully well.
Yes to Carrots Pampering Hand & Nail Spa is a paraben-free scrub made from sea salt, carrot seed oil, carrots, and pumpkin. The formula is oily and filled with large grains of scrubbing salt and resembles just about any body scrub you might be familiar with such as Philosophy scrubs. Honestly, if the title didn’t say hand and nail I’d have thought I could use it on my knees and elbows instead!
In order to use it you’ll simply scrub a small amount on wet hands and rinse! Presto! Smooth hands! The grains work at exfoliating your skin while the natural oils of the product moisturize your hands and nails. With ingredients such as pumpkin and carrot I was expecting this to smell as such however strangely enough it kind of has a soft floral scent which is interesting.
The Muse is open to just about anything that will relieve her dry skin in the Winter and she totally dug Yes to Carrots Pampering Hand & Nail Spa! The price is quite nice as it’s on sale at Walgreens at the moment for $12.74 USD plus you get a rather large jar. It exfoliates as well as moisturizes while spoiling your hands and nails with good for you ingredients all while keeping it’s formula paraben-free!
The Muse thinks you should say Yes to Carrots and snag yourself some of this great stuff! It’s undoubtedly something your dry hands and nails will thank you for this Winter!

I’m a true girly girl in ever sense of the word! I love cosmetics, I love bath products, I love new shoes and gorgeous clothes, I love all girly bits and bobs! Anything that’s pink and shimmers is always appealing!
The extent of my girly nature ends when it comes to doing my nails! I’m a big time nail biter! I bite my nails constantly! It’s a terrible habit that’s difficult to break! Not only is it terrible but it’s down right disgusting!
This weekend I went away a few days with some friends and decided that I’d get all glam and do my nails. The good news is that it made my chubby little fingers look long and lean. The bad news is it drove me nuts all weekend trying to relearn how to use my hands with such long nails on the tips!
Last night, after getting home, I began the intricate surgery of removing these bloody things! It obviously wasn’t going to be an easy procedure so I went to bed very unhappy!
This morning I came to work with what remained of these nails on and promptly sat in the washroom for the better part of the last 30 minutes popping them off one by one because I am unable to work with these freaking things on!
I give huge kudos and props to those of you who are able to function day to day with long nails! As for me I’ll stick to my bad habits and keep chomping away at the bit…!
