Did you watch? &Winter Feet

Did you watch Housewives of Atlanta on Bravo last night? How is this beauty related you ask? Well you may have noticed some of the cute shoes, color palettes and dresses that appeared on the show last night so there's your connection..lol anyway I will be watching this season. (side question- do you think NeNe was intentionally kept off the guest list or was it a major oversight?)
Even though we are moving toward frigid winter weather we can not neglect our feet. I have been using the Dr. Scholl's Ultra Overnight Foot Cream which is a thick lotion made with aloe and palm oil that can be used to moisturize your feet. However this product can also be used on elbows, knees and your hands. I have to say that I would not purchase this product again, there really is nothing special about it. My feet may be moisturized for the moment but that feeling does not last long at all. It also has two different parabens in it so you already know I'm done with this product. This Dr. Scholl's product was made for the "SKIP IT" files.
Are you keeping your feet in shape even though winter shoes will hide your toes for the next few months?

Lauren, a loyal reader on this blog, asked about Mill Creek products so here is a picture of what I own. Two bottles of the Biotin Conditioner (I think because the packaging is different, I didn't realize that I already owned this product.) I also have the tingly Biotin deep conditioning treatment which is supposed to increase hair growth and improve the strength of your hair. You place this product on your scalp for a few minutes after you shampoo your hair. I have not used any of these products enough to properly review them so they just sit in my hair product dungeon. Perhaps I will give these products a fair shot soon. Has anyone experienced great results after using Mill Creek products?

I tried that foot cream, and I wasn't impressed either.

I was curious about Aquaphor "healing ointment" because it gets rave reviews in every beauty magazine I read, but it looks like plain old vaseline. I tried it and I'm impressed too. Not as greasy as vaseline and I liked the way my feet & elbows felt afterwards. You might like it.

Girl, I SO watched the housewives last night. I think Sheree did it on purpose. Nene has been to Sheree's house plenty of times. Nene needs to stay away from Sheree.

I watched pieces of ATL housewives and I don't think Shere purposely left Ne-Ne off the list. I think it was a mere oversight.

Shere was taking calls left and right and barely look at the guets list herself. Not too mention she spoke with Tiffany about streamlining the quest list.

I have that foot cream, it does suck.

I watched the show too, they so did that on purpose. How can you leave the loudest person alive off your list and not realize it. You know she would have made sure she was on there first!

Aww thanks for doing a posting & asking about the Mill Creek products. Im probably going to start using it next week after I use my claifying shampoo this week. I too also have the Biotion Shampoo bottle (the middle 1 from your posting in the picture). They didnt have the conditioner so I'll probably use 1 of the AO ones I have. O and no I didn't watch the show I knew it was coming on, i just 4got to look lol. I'll catch the re-runs even thou I heard the show was hot mess. Lol what network does it come on btw, VH1? Thanks again diva :)

I'm about to show how much of a mess I am- If you click on the picture of the Mill Creek products you will see that both of those big bottles are conditioner, the old packaging and the new design. lol I actually purchased the same product twice without realizing I already had a bottle at home. Too many products mean that I can not even see everything that I have...it's a shame really.
The Housewives show airs on the Bravo network but last night I saw that a repeat appeared on the Oxygen network, so I guess you can catch it on either channel this weekend.
