Anyone else notice the temperature peaking at a much lower point over the long weekend? There’s no question cooler weather is here and before we know it, we’ll be facing the likes of snow and ice and all of the problems that come with it!
The colder weather always brings about the issue of dry skin for me. Be it chapped lips, dry legs, and above all, hands, I find once this time of year comes around I’m reaching for heavy duty lotion to keep my skin from totally drying out and cracking.
I discovered hand scrubs during my days on the sales floor for Bath & Body Works, and quickly categorized them as an “oh-my-god-love-this” kind of product – they were always an easy sell because once a customer tried their hands at using them (see what I did there?) at the in-store sink, they were sold. Hand scrubs are hands down (again!) one of the least expensive ways to indulge in a spa-like treatment at home for even just a brief moment.
When Mary Kay sent along their new Limited Edition Pomegranate Satin Hands® Pampering Set last week, it was as if they’d been hearing prayers I didn’t even know I was sending – it had been a while since I had a hand scrub by my sink and my dry hand problems were just starting to give me trouble.
The set includes a Fragrance-Free Satin Hands® Hand Softener, Pomegranate Satin Hands® Satin Smoothie® Hand Scrub and a Pomegranate Satin Hands® Hand Cream. The trio works together to keep your hands hydrated, soothed and pampered and are especially effective during the cold winter months.
To get the full Satin Hands experience, start by damping your hands and applying some of the hand softener – it’s super thick and is essentially just heavy-duty petroleum jelly, so a little goes a long way. Next, pump some of the scrub on your hands and get scrubbing! I always say give yourself an entire minute for this part (yes, count to 60!) and make sure you really enjoy it. It’s such a luxurious feeling and gives you at least one single minute in your day to just relax! This step actually removes dead cells and exfoliates, so all of that dryness is sure to wipe itself away. Rinse the scrub off and finish off with some of the hand cream lock in all of that moisture and continue with your day.
Since we’re heading into the holiday season, this makes an excellent gift for party hosts or women in your family, and it’s also great to keep in your powder room for guests to enjoy if you’re playing hostess this season. At $51 CAD the price is right for the three products you’re getting, and the pomegranate scent is a safe bet in the fragrance department in my opinion. Buy it online at marykay.ca!
