Regular readers will probably know that a good hand cream is a must have for me. If I could have only one beauty product with me in my bag, that’d be it (and a lip balm, if I can have two).
I have very dry skin, especially on the hands, and I love to re-apply the cream whenever I need to do it
or feel like doing it.
This is why I’ve decided to share my personal top 5 hand creams. Unfortunately, most of them are not cheap but I, personally, am ready to pay for the quality.
Elemis Pro-Radiance Hand Cream (review)
It is probably my favourite hand cream ever, it instantly makes the skin feel moisturized and smooth, such a relief, especially in the cold(er) months. Plus I could totally tell that my nails were in much better condition when I was using it.
The price is £24 from Feel Unique

Regular readers will know that I am a huge fan of Clarins lip products and baby pink is my “nude”. This is why I’ve decided to share my top 3 Clarins pink lip products that are my personal must haves.
I did a detailed review of each so I won’t say a lot this time but will just mention that all three are phenomenal, they all are like a mix of lip treatment and a beautiful colour glosses. Smell amazing and feel nice when applied. It only depends on the applicator and the effect that you want on your lips:

It seems like it’s now a tradition to show you what beauty and makeup products I take with me when I am away, just like in this post. So, since I am currently visiting my family, here is a quick update on what products I took with me.
To tell the truth, I barely wear any makeup these days but I did take quite a few products (and a lot of brushes) since people always ask me for a makeover.
I am very happy with the skincare that I’ve packed with me, including a lot of mini bottles which I am currently testing. I only wish I took more than three nail polishes, as my 5-years-old-cousin loves to borrow them
Speaking of my cousin, she insisted on inspecting my “treasures” as she described my makeup bag… When she saw the red lipstick I had, she told me that she had to put it on me, since it’d make me look gorgeous. What can I say? She does know beauty.
Clarins make the best lip products, so I knew that their version of lip crayons, which came out as a part of summer’s Colours of Brazil collection, would be amazing.
Clarins’ Lip Crayons have a luminous glossy finish, and give just enough of “statement” on the lips . They are basically like a balm in a stick form that give you a pretty pop of colour for summer. I find thatRead More
