Croatian Winter vs. Hand Creams

Hey girls! I thought I might quickly share my favorite hand creams, since I used to have such a hard time finding products I was happy with, and no one will notice your pretty nails if your hands are dry. My hands get very dry during winter, especially when it's snowing outside. So the first hand cream I will talk about is by Cera di Cupra (the photo above). It's an italian brand, and this hand cream is super cheap, and honestly I didnt expect much from it...but this ended up being better than most of my very expensive creams. Makes your skin instantly soft, doesnt rinse out easily, doesnt make your hands oily - trust me, you NEED to buy this. I only noticed this brand this year in our stores, so I dont know much about them or their products, and this is the first of their products that I've tried out, but I will be picking up a few other things as well. I am seriously nuts about this hand cream.
The next hand cream is a croatian product that I fell in love with (picture above). It's made by PIP, a croatian company that makes...mostly honey? Like the italian hand cream (by Cera di Cupra), this one also contains beeswax (which apparently my skin loves). I love the cute packaging. I tried out this cream because this brand makes awesome honey, this is the first product I tried from then that isnt meant to be eaten. The awesome things I've said about the italian hand cream can be said for this one as well - both are awesome and I cannot pick a favorite - this will work wonders as well. The italian one is a bit cheaper, so maybe that's a plus. This cream can be bought only in your local pharmacy, so if you have a very dry skin or serious problems with your skin, this is a better pick for you.
The last product I will mention helps my skin when it seems it's beyond help - It's Pure Petroleum Jelly by Lander. Now, this isnt a hand cream - it's too oily to use when you're actually using your hands. What I do is, I put this all over my hands, then I wear my cotton gloves and then I just go to bed, or go watch a movie- when I take the gloves off, my skin is just so incredibly soft. During the winter I go to sleep like this at least twice a week - and I no longer have the problems with dry skin as I used to. I hope you guys enjoyed this post, have any other croatian girls tried out these products, what are your opinions? :) See you in the next post, where I'll be talking about nail polish as usual ;)
