Dry hands, lips and hair are healed with Nip + Fab, Diane Lai and Joico!

Nip + Fab Dry Hand Fix Brightening Hand Cream - 75ml - $8.29 - an intensive balm that immediately smoothes dry, flaky skin while nourishing with an innovative moisturizing and restructuring with Aquaxyl leaving hands silky smooth to the touch - also contains amino acids to brighten and improve skin tone.

If you like your hand creams moisturizing without the slimy feel, then you will want to try this one! I can't decide what I think of the smell though, it's strong but not perfumey and I just can't put a finger on what it is!

Available at Shoppers Drug Mart.
Diane Lai Moist Lip Balm - $4.90 - moisten dry lips naturally as well as protect them from winter dryness with natural ingredients including coconut and olive oils, shea butter and organic beeswax. And with no parabens, phthalates, formaldehyde, artificial fragrance or colourants, retinols, sulfates or petro chemicals is a healthy way to keep alligator lips at bay this winter! Choose from Sweet Orange or Unflavored.

Of course I choose Sweet Orange - it smells amazing and keeps my lips nice and soft!

Available at, Jacob and Sebastian, Blossom Bath & Body and Springy's
Joico K-PAK RevitaLuxe Bio-Advanced Restorative Treatment - 150ml - $24.95 - strengthens hair making it over 2x more resistant to breakage as well as protect against colour fade by 94% while instantly correcting years of damage and protecting against future damage - contains: Bio-Mimetic Peptides - actively target and repair damage, address structural damage and rejuvenate the intercellular hair matrix, create a "molecular bandage" to protect against future damage; Keratin Amino Acids - 19 essential amino acids restore moisture balance of hair to improve luster and elasticity; Jojoba Oil - penetrates, moisturizes, softens and conditions, promotes the recovery of hair's natural elasticity, improves shine and manageability; and Aloe Extract - adds luxurious moisture.

I have been applying this to clean wet hair for 5 minutes twice a week and my hair feels amazingly soft afterwards, right from the first time I used it. The only thing I don't love is the smell - it's a little too perfumey for my taste but the smell doesn't linger once I rinse it out so I'm willing to suck it up for the great results!

Available at salons - go to to find one near you and Trade Secrets -
