Curel Itch Defense Instant Soothing Moisturizing Spray
and Body Wash

Hey guys! Today I have a short review of some new items from Curel via Influenster. They recently came out with an Itch Defense Moisturizing Spray and Body Wash. If you don't know, I suffer from eczema on my hands and my feet (and from time to time other spots on my body). I do phototherapy treatments twice a week, but sometimes that isn't enough and it can dry out my skin. I was excited to give these two products a try, especially the spray since it has the National Eczema Association seal!

However, I've found seaweed is a great way to treat the dry skin, eczema, and acne issues on my face. So I was super stoked to try out this out! Check out more after the jump :]

Forget Me Not Friday - NERD LACQUER: Don't Panic

Pin It
Nerd Lacquer Don't Panic

Hey there! Today's Forget Me Not Friday is a Nerd Lacquer I grabbed from a blog sale a few months back, Don't Panic. I love green polish and green glitter and I've lusted this after polish for awhile :P Can't wait to share it with you below!n

Nerd Lacquer Don't Panic over Sinful Colors Pistache
Nerd Lacquer Don't Panic over Sinful Colors Pistache
Nerd Lacquer Don't Panic over Sinful Colors Pistache

Nerd Lacquer Don't Panic is a "brilliant clover green base with emerald and grass green glitter, plus a sprinkling of holographic sparkle". If you like green, this is great for you! The base is a little too sheer for me to deal with layering, so I layered it over Sinful Colors Pistache (previously swatched here!). The teenie tiny glitters are my favorite. Look at that macro - so much green glittery fun!

I did 2 coats of Don't Panic over a pair of light green undies. I think it would take quite a few coats to build up, I'm not about that. Bet this also would look amazing over a dark green! Application didn't give me any issues. After a few shakes, glitter coverage per coat was great. Dry time was great also. No issues for me! :)

I'd link you to Nerd Lacquer's social media... but I don't want to encourage my readers to purchase from her directly. I'm sorry to say there have been TONS of issues with ordering from her. (I'm sure you could Google the whole ordeal) I haven't purchased from her in well over a year. Your best bet for finding Nerd Lacquer is blog sales/Storenvy (where I grabbed this one).

Happy FRIYAY!
I purchased this with my own money.
