Beauty Quickie: Affordable Hand & Nail Duo

I've probably documented my love towards L'Occitane and Burt's Bees hand creams in more than a few occasions. However, since my hands are super dry from constant washing and now from the cool air – I love to throw in a few bonus hand creams in the mix. I also have been getting several requests via e-mail and messages to write about more affordable hand creams and even nail polish removers. That is why I have decided to resolve these beauty inquiries as part of my quick beauty post series. Beauty Quickie: Affordable Hand & Nail Duo features two amazing yet cheap & cheerful items and a few recommendations in between. If you know dm (drogerie markt) than you definitely know their Balea range as well. Excellent products of even more alluring low prices give the most bang for your buck and this particular hand cream kinda won me over from the start. Balea Olive hand cream is a terrific cream that moisturizes hands beautifully without leaving an unwanted residue. It makes skin amazingly soft and supple without compromising the freshness we all need as hands are always busy – any unwanted/ uninvited residue brings an uncomfortable feeling and that's a no-no in my books. Freshly-scented hands that are ready to type away for under $2? Count me in! I also love their hand sanitizing (antibacterial gels) and if you had a rummage through my tote, you'd find one along with this hand cream.

Moja ljubav spram L'Occitane i Burt's Bees krema za ruke je u vise navrata dokumentovana na blogu no, posto su mi ruke dosta suhe kako zbog cestog pranja tako i zbog hladnog zraka – u kolekciji mi se nalaze i kreme koje su znatno pristupacnije cijene od favorita no za njima ne kaskaju glede kvaliteta. Takodjer sam putem mejla i poruka dobila dosta upita za preporuku dobrih krema za ruke ali i skidaca laka za nokte te sam se zbog toga odlucila da odgovorim na ova pitanja u sklopu serijala mini formata gorucih beauty dilema. Brzinska preporuka dvojca za njegu ruku i noktiju vas nece kostati mnogo a sa ovim proizvodima cete biti jako zadovoljne. Sigurno ste upoznate sa dm brendom Balea koji me nerijetko odusevi i istovremeno mi ustedi novcice. Krema koja me dojmila od samog pocetka je Balea krema za ruke sa maslinovim uljem (cca 2,35KM). Krasno hidratizira ruke no ne ostavlja ljepljivi sloj na povrsini koze. Neprijatan zastitni sloj koji prati mnoge kreme za ruke mi nikada ne ide u prilog koristenju tokom dana. Nocni, hranljivi tretman je nesto potpuno drugo no dok sam kuci, na poslu ili u pokretu – volim da su ruke ciste, svjeze i hidratizirane ali ne ljepljive. Svjezi miris i lagana tekstura doprinose osjecaju cistoce a kozi ne nedostaje njege uz ovo pristupacno zadovoljstvo. Takodjer volim Balea antibakterijske gelove a u torbi se upravo nalaze jedan takav gel i krema koji toplo preporucujem.

Acetone-free nail polish remover that is like a spa for even the most fragile, most brittle and dried-out nails must be the Kozmetika Afrodita Aroma Rich Care nail polish remover. I've been using their Oliva Oil Base nail polish remover (can you see an olive theme here?) for over two years now but I must say that I prefer the Aroma Rich version (also oil-based) as it really looks out for cuticles. Packed with 100% sunflower oil, orange essential oil and a sweet vanilla scent – what's not to love? It also is very good at removing dark nail polishes which I wear constantly come autumn/winter. There are even more affordable nail polish removers which I repurchase all the time (such as the Ebelin one in the plain blue bottle). Aroma Rich is a great range for hands and lots of readers have recommended the Aroma Rich hand cream as well. Have you tried it and what are your favorite hand creams/ nail polish removers that save pennies along with having superpowers?

Skidac laka za nokte koji ne sadrzi aceton a djeluje kao mini wellness tretman na cak i na lomljive, krhke i suhe nokte – upravo je takav Kozmetika Afrodita Aroma Rich Care skidac laka na uljnoj bazi (cca 4,10KM). Preko dvije godine sam prilicno vjerna njihovom Oliva skidacu laka, takodjer na uljnoj bazi (da li primjecujete koliko volim masline/maslinovo ulje u njezi ruku?). Iako sam jako zadovoljna sa oba skidaca, moram priznati da sam vise privrzena Aroma Rich verziji  posto pruza bas bogatu njegu kozici oko noktiju a samim time su i zanoktice rijedja pojava. Obogacen sa 100% suncokretovim uljem, esencijalnim uljem narandze te slasnim mirisom vanilije – tesko ga je ne zavoljeti. Cijenim i sto efikasno uklanja tamne lakove za nokte koje konstantno nosim jos od dolaska jeseni. Postoje i skidaci laka za nokte jos pristupacnije cijene – npr.Ebelin skidac u plavoj bocici koji kosta oko 2KM je takodjer jako dobar i iznova ga nabavljam. Afroditina Aroma Rich linija je izgleda uopsteno odlicna je mi je mnogo citateljica preporucilo i Aroma Rich kreme za ruke (cijene variraju, 3KM-4KM) koje tek namjeravam isprobati. Da li ste mozda isprobale neke od mojih prijedloga ili imate vlastite favorite za koje bih trebala znati?
