CND Scentsations Winterberry Lotion & Scrub

It is no secret that I love everything CND, I mean hello Cuticle Eraser & Solar Oil! These two products alone have pretty much guaranteed that I will never have to reach for another *evil* cuticle nipper again. If any readers reading this now still do not have these products in their arsenal, get them, now. Your cuticles and nails will thank you.

Moisture is a very important part of my hand and nail care routine. Another product I have been really loving lately is CND Scentsations Black Cherry & Nutmeg Lotion. It smells absolutely divine, sinks into my skin quickly, and is very non-greasy. It just feels silky and wonderful! 

Since I have been loving everything CND lately, I decided to try their Winterberry scent that is new for Holiday 2008. The Winterberry scent is available in both the Scentsations Lotion and Scentsations Scrub.

OK, let me just say that CND Scentsations Winterberry Lotion + Winterberry Scrub = hands that are as smooth as a baby's bottom! I am loving my hands right now, they have never felt smoother. 

Let's talk about the scrub first. The scent is both sweet and a bit tart at the same time. I prefer sweet fragrances so this is perfect for me! The particles in the scrub are fairly large and coarse, which I love, because the finer scrubs just don't work as well for me. The particles in the scrub are suspended in this luscious and superbly moisturizing jelly like formula that is loaded with Sunflower Seed Oil, Shea Butter and Jojoba. Hello moisture! 

I attempted to photograph the scrub for you in the jar and on my hand so you can see the size of the scrubbing particles. Not sure if I've succeeded:


And here is my hand modeling shot of the jar (LOL):

Now on to the lotion. Again, just like my beloved CND Scentsations Black Cherry & Nutmeg Lotion, the Winterberry scent did not disappoint. Infused with Aloe Vera and Vitamins A & E, it has the same fabulous non-greasy formula that sinks in quickly and leaves my skin super soft. I also use this as a body lotion too FYI.  The Winterberry scent is both sweet and tart, but without being too sweet, just like the coordinating scrub.

Here is a picture of the lotion - I could have used the press images from CND  but it is so much more fun to pretend to be a hand model:

In short, using both of these products together will help stave off dry-weathered winter skin. These products are both being added to my "must have" list. 

The lotion retails for $11.50 and the scrub retails for $15.90 are are available online at Go Indulge.  You can also find my favorite CND products, including these, at my favorite e-tailers (links under "where to haul"). Both of these make great gifts!!

That is all for now (typing with ridiclously soft hands). See you soon!

xoxo,
Katee

  6. Next order I make, I will get the cuticle eraser. I'm dying to try this stuff that everyone raves about. Might snatch up the solar oil too, as I have never used that either. I use cuticle oil, just never tried solar oil.

  7. thanks for the post - I will check out the scrub. I just started using the CND combo of cuticle eraser and solar oil...it's amazing. It's been about two weeks, and I am hooked.

  8. Hi Katee - So does CND have any almond oil scented lotions or cremes? I LOVE the smell of the Solar Oil and want that in a lotion.

  9. Vampy - CND makes a cream called "Solar Butter" and a lotion called "Solar Silk", so part of their Solar line. I have never tried them though so I don't know what they smell like. But something I'll definitely check out the next time I see them at a store! Head2Toe carries these.

    Casey - Aren't these the best products ever?! Stick w/me, I won't steer you wrong ;)

    Brooke - OMG still can't believe you don't have CE. Definitely get it next time you make a head2toe order.
