    Hi everyone,happy Halloween.
    BP,hope you are feeling more positive today and the sadness has gone.
    I’m dealing with manflu since Mon,himself has it bad.What a dose,on me that is!!I’m adding to his misery with my announcements on who has launched their Christmas collections,seems he’s not that bothered about Lancomes advent calendar,apart from being very nervous that I might buy it of course!
    Enjoy Halloween,thank God I live in the middle of nowhere and get no trick or treaters….humbug

    Morning Bp…. You sound brighter today, how you feeling. Hate to hear you sounding down.

    I had such a productive day yesterday, got through my list, damn boots and there 3 for 2 offers. 3 soap and glory products, 2 nail polishes EffeclarMatt, collection concealer. Literally everything you lot on here have been recommending, had to buy it!
    Mccabes have a third off the la Roche posay range…..

    Oh and I got my flu jab too.

    I think I’ll,go and see sky fall this afternoon, bit of 007……

    Hi everyone!

    Yacky out there. A duvet day for those who are lucky!

    started exercising last night. Set myself a goal to lose a stone by end of Jan. its do-able! :)

  • PirateAtSea says:

    Morning ladies! I hope the day is treating ye well so far!
    I need a bit of advice and I figure this is the place to go. I don’t tend to write here much but I’d still appreciate your help.
    In 10 days I’m shaving my head for charity & I’m terrified of my scalp being all flaky and dry looking when my hair is gone! My scalp is normally very dehydrated and I sometimes do get flakes from it. Are there any scalp treatments out there that any of ye can recommend? I know it’s kind of a random beauty question but I’d still very much appreciate any help ye could give :)

  • LynnieDoll says:

    Fair play to you PirateatSea….. You could try putting bio oil on it at night, bit shiny for the day and I am nearly sure la Roche posy do a scalp wash, I saw it yesterday. The baby nurse told me that good old Vaseline works too, and it did on Littledoll. Your a brave and selfless lady…… Big hug for you.

  • PirateAtSea says:

    Thanks very much lynniedoll! I’d use the word crazy a bit more though lol! :) I’ve over €500 raised in the last 2 weeks already and that’s just the cards I’ve gotten back. I’ll get those products tomorrow and fingers crossed it’ll do the trick!

  • LoCo says:

    PirateAtSea- wow well done. My dad is a baldy and he uses hair conditioner on his hair/head after he washes it. He said it stops his scalp drying out from the shower. Only discovered this when he used up my expensive Sebastian conditioner!!! He also uses plain old vitamin e cream if he get any dryness.

  • Chloe says:

    PirateAtSea, good luck & well done! I’d love to do Shave or Dye next year. Lush have a hair mask that’s aimed at dry scalps, but I think baby oil at night is perfect.
    Does anyone have any recommendations for eyebrow threading?

  • Orla says:

    PirateAtSea – wow, well done lady! I’ve always wanted to do that, but never been brave enough! :) I hope it goes well for you! :)

    Went to bed at 9 last night and was asleep from about 9.01 I’d say but was still stuck to the bed this morning! I’m lashing on the hand cream lately as my nails are in bits, my poor fingers are bleeding and horrible.. got any suggestions for good intensive hand treatments? I’ve tried Body Shop hemp hand cream, nutrogina, e45, L’occotaine, 2 avon ones, Soap & Glory.. and my fingers are still raw :(

    Morning all from Sinus Central here. Eyes look and feel like big huge Strip loin steaks today. And not even tasty to eat ones at that.

    PirateAtSea, Bio Oil will almost definitely be too heavy and quite harsh on your scalp. It’s skin that hasn’t seen sunlight since you were a tot and it’s thin skin as well; it’s going to be quite sensitive for a few weeks. Loco’s suggestion of conditioner is good or something simple such as Sudocreme or Aloe Vera, just go easy with it and use a perfume free soap to wash the skin down fo. And resist the urge to scratch your head big time :)

    Orla, years ago my Dad had a rash on his hands. One of the things the GP told him to do was to put skin creams into rubber gloves when he washed up etc and it did him the world of good.

    Hi ladies!!!!
    Haven’t been around these parts in ages but I’m on holidays this week so it gives me time to blather. Hope you’ve all been keeping well. I’ve been reading the blather at ungodly o clock most nights so think I’m pretty up to date.

    How you keeping Orla? I get awful dry skin on my hands too. I blame drying them with tissue and using antibacterial gel. I got a blue and red Nivea cream and I find its the only thing that works. It’s called rescue repair cream or something. It’s brill

    Well done pirate at sea. You’re a brave lady! Hope you raise loads.

    I bloody hate halloween so I’m gonna pretend its not happening today. Got chocolate in for the trick or treaters but secretly hope none call. Would I be a total bitch to turn the lights off and pretend I’m out??

  • Shygirl says:

    Morning all!

  • Gossipgal says:

    The Mammy used E45 shampoo when her hair fell out with the cancer. Worked well. Freezing here and I’m out of coffee. :( Heading to a party tonight so miss the callers. Have to eat all the sweeties myself

  • Orla says:

    Thanks beth & squishywishy – I’ll try both of those! :)

  • ZsaZsa says:

    Hi all – hope your keeping well. I’m struggling to sleep properly lately – in and out of sleep all of the time! So frustrating! What I’d give for a couple of normal nights sleep at the moment!

    @ Orla – have you tried any of the Garnier Intensice 7 days Hand Creams – they are absolutly great and reasonably priced also! My hands dry out really easily and I love this hand cream as some ‘intensive’ hand creams do nothing for my hands! Also Kiehls have a really intensive hand cream but it is pricier and the scent is really potent!

  • Shygirl says:

    Orla the vaseline intensive care one is good, its in a pink bottle. It nourishes the nails aswell. Have you tried using a cuticle cream or nail oil with the hand cream? I do find the Jessica nail care stuff really good.

  • Orla says:

    Oh I’ll look out for that too ZsaZsa :)

    Shygirl, lightbulb moment. I’ve just started to use Burts Bees cuticle cream and it’s only since I started using it that I’ve been having this problem.. maybe there’s something in it that doesn’t suit my hands. I’ll stop using it for a bit and see if it clears up :)

  • PirateAtSea says:

    Thanks very much for the tips and support everyone! I’ll be sure to let ye know how the products work out and how the fundraiser night goes :)
