Yes!Nurse

Another winner from the Glossybox!  I suffer with eczema on my hands and I'm really enjoying using this cream.  On my eczema-prone hand the fingers crack, swell and get red, but after a few days of using this I'm pleased to report that even my Mum commented that my hands were beginning to look like they match!  It smells good and feels good, without being too thick or too runny.  

I love everything about this product, from the super cute cardboard box it was packaged in (sadly Dudley got to this before I managed to take a photo), to the kitsch feel the brand has.  It's packed full of nutrients and their website sums it up so much better than I can, so take a look here!  The product was designed for nurses on the go, which means it also has a nice "hygienic" scent to it!

Is anybody else a hand cream junkie?

MAC Cream Colour Base in Pearl

This is one of those products that's doing the rounds on blogs and YouTube at the moment, and as I'm never one to turn down a MAC hype I, predictably, went out and bought it.

Marketed as a multi-purpose product, I (like many) use this as a highlighter on the tops of my cheeks in a C-shape around my temples and on my brow bone.  I wouldn't call this holy grail, but it does give a pretty glow to the skin.  I find it can be tricky to avoid getting obvious finger marks rather than a subtle sheen.  Perhaps it's the way I apply it though, as many YouTubers manage to achieve gorgeous dewy skin and according to MAC it can be built to a "highly dramatic" finish!

In store, I was drawn to the shade Lunar but advised that Pearl was more flattering.  Looking online I think I'll try Hush next!  Would you recommend either of these?
