Amera Natural Nails


Ever since the colder weather hit us in Alberta, my hands immediately took the toll. Chilly temps, along with the wind caused a terrible dryness, almost immediately. So, each night before bed, I’d slather on some hand lotion that I have sitting on the nightstand.

I did this, faithfully with the popular in-store brand, yet saw nothing when it came results. After weeks of lotioning, my hands were still dry! Does this sound familiar to you?

Then, I got an adorable package from the nice people at Amera, a line of natural products for hands and nails. Formulated by dermatologists, Amera’s products have been around since 1984 yet this was my first introduction. The company was actually started by a female dentist who was tired of always having dry and rough hands along with chipped and splitting nails. 

“Unsatisfied with what she found on the market she set out to research and work with dermatologists to develop products that use natural ingredients and tricks of her trade.”

Thinking of my ‘hand situation’, I immediately started using the Amera Hand and Body Lotion. It contains no alcohol or added fragrance to avoid allergic reactions no matter if used in your home or in professional settings. 

That first night, I tried Amera Hand and Body Lotion and noticed that after seconds of rubbing it into my hands, all evidence of the lotion was gone. So different than other lotions I have at home, which coated the hands and felt slippery for hours afterward. Quite honestly, my reaction was, ‘that’s it!? How can this possibly work?“.

** Here’s the important part people:  After two nights of applying Amera Hand and Body Lotion, ALL dryness and tightness in my hands, disappeared. ALL. I sit here now after weeks of use and am amazed at how well this lotion works, impressed at the soft hands that plink away on the keyboard. Colour me a HUGE fan, I’ve never had a hand lotion work this fast before!

This lotion costs $13.50, which is a steeper price that other brands but .. ummm, it actually works!? If I think of the 6+ bottles of hand lotion in my house that are {honestly} useless in comparison, I’m all in for paying that $13.50. 

amera cuticle mousse review

I’ve also been used the other products I was sent for review, the creamy whipped Cuticle Mousse, something which I was always told by my aesthetician to use, but haven’t. Honestly, I tried but the usual cuticle creams come in nail polish bottles and I’ve never cared for the liquidy greasiness of those. Amera’s Cuticle Mousse is thicker than the lotion, obviously, but another ninja in a bottle waiting to be unleashed. Love it!


Of course I’ve used all of the products on my feet, to prep for our family trip to Florida. Easy pampering at home with wonderful products that actually LOOK like they’ve been done by a professional? Yes please!

I have a feeling this Winter that both the Hand and Body Lotion and the Foot Treatment will be my BFF’s and the others will be like their trusted sidekicks in the battle of the elements vs the body. Know who wins this fight? Me, finally!
