what you can find next to my bed
Do you have that basket or drawer full of must haves next to your bed! I thought I would share with you my favorites that might be able to add to your nighttime routine!
Living in New England I am constantly trying to keep my lips and hands from cracking!
If you buy a product through some of my links I might earn a small commission, but I only share products that I use and love and think you will too!
Next to my bed: lips
Winter lips need lots of love! At night I can’t slather enough lip balm on, and usually fall asleep with a tin in my hand. Here are my favorites:
Nivea Lip Butter – I keep a tin of this EVERYWHERE! In my purse, in the kitchen, in the car – pretty much every place I might need it. It’s strangely hard to find, but I buy it in bulk on Amazon. My favorite flavor is Raspberry Rose Kiss.
Glossier Balm Dotcom – This is a cult classic and is much more than just Vaseline in a fancy tube. It keeps your lips smooth for hours and comes in different tints and flavors! I recommend the trio so you can spread them out around the house!
tip: Get your kids and hubby their own chapstick! No one wants other people’s fingers in their lip stuff! 😝
Next to my bed: hands
Winter will do a number on your hands so it’s good to protect them at night before bed! I have three hand potions that I keep next to my bed.
Neutrogena Norwegian Hand Cream – This is my favorite and my go-to. You just need a tiny dot to keep your hands protected!
Nivea Creme – I love this one because you can throw it in the pocket of your winter coat, and another good one to keep next to your bed.
The Ordinary Virgin Marula Oil – I bought this to compare to the more expensive Drunk Elephant version and while it can’t compare for face oil, I love putting a few drops on my hands at night.
Pickfix – I mentioned this in another Fun Find’s, but it bears repeating. If your skin cracks or you are a picker – run don’t walk to get some! Put it on a scab or a zit you might have had your way with and it will heal almost overnight.
HUM Mighty Night – This does the work from the inside! Not only does it help you sleep but it also helps skin cell turnover. (See the other HUM vitamins that I love too.)
Arnica Montana – If you are working out more this month than normal then you might have some sore muscles. Throw a few under your tongue before bed for some relief.
Pukka Tea – You need something to sip on to wind yourself down at the end of the day. Relax and night time are my favorites for bedtime.
Ok – yes I am a little high maintenance at bedtime, but it takes a lot to wake up looking fabulous! 🤣
