Regular readers will know my obsession with hand creams, here is actually a post about my top 5 from last year, and I should probably write an updated version at some point.

I am a huge believer in a hand cream, and I always have one in my handbag, always. It is a necessity in colder months to protect the skin, to moisturise and nourish it. Also, we all know – the way your hands look can give away your age. And I personally can’t stand dried out skin. Applying hand cream is a pure relaxing little luxury, especially when
As mentioned in this post, I had Nivea, Extended Moisture, Body Lotion, Dry to Very Dry Skin on my list every since my friend gave me hers to try. I did get myself a bottle afterwards, and I really, really loved it.
The funny thing is that I have to use a brand’s photo, as I gave my bottle to another friend in the end, as we were on a holiday together and she loved it so much, that I gave it to her, and still did not get a new one for myself.
So what is so good about this lotion? It does work! It melts into the skin, leaving it soft and smooth instantly, you can say goodbye to tight, itchy or sore [skin], the texture is lovely and the scent is nice, too.
Moreover, this lotion also feels amazing when
Can you believe that tomorrow is September already? Where did the time go? Yeah, I do realize that I say this almost every month. Actually, August was probably the best month for me this year so far so I am kind of sad that it’s over…
So, what beauty products I’ve been loving this month?
I have to start with shimmering body oils. I am sorry for going on, and on about them. But I am such a die hard fan that I am convinced that every girl needs one in her life. It is a
life game changer! A good oil moisturises the skin and you get that polished and glossy look the models rock in the magazines. I love Omorovicza and Clarins, but there are cheaper options out there, too.
One more products that I won’t shut up about is the Aromathepary Assosiates Deep Relax Bath and Shower Oil (review). In fact, some of my friends associate this scent with me at this point. This is the best product for relaxing. If you don’t believe in aromatherapy – wait until you try this one. I know that it is not the cheapest one but it will last for ages.
I also have to mention Nivea Extended Moisture, Body Lotion, Dry to Very Dry Skin, as it is a brilliant body moisturizer. Unfortunately, I don’t have a bottle any more so couldn’t include it in the photo. But I do promise to write a review soon.
Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm (review). I’ve decided to go back to this simple cleanser in August, as
Who doesn’t love a new beauty concept? With the amount of the beauty products that are available these days it can be pretty hard to be original and bring out something new.
I’ve heard a lot of raves about Nivea In-Shower Body Moisturizer, and since there are very few similar products ( I know Lush have one), I’ve decided to try it myself, especially since the price is so affordable!
It is basically a conditioner for your body! You use your regular shower gel, then apply this conditioner, leave it for several seconds, wash it off, and you are
Now my aim was not to tell you the winner in each nomination. Like best lipstick/gloss/liner etc. I just wanted to mention the products that really impressed me this year. So this is why you have 4 lipsticks, lip gloss and a balm.
Here we go…
Hourglass Femme Rouge Lipstick (luxury)
Now this is the best lipstick that I’ve tried in a long time. It seems that it’s impossible not to like it! I know that so many of you are waiting for a review, so stay tuned for it in 2011 to find out why I like it so much.
Revlon Matte Lipstick
I love matte lipsticks, I really do. And I find that these lipsticks by Revlon are pretty amazing especially for the price. Just make sure that your lips are in a nice condition before you use this or any other matte lipstick. To tell the truth, I wouldn’t mind having the whole range. Red review here and see the lip swatches here.
Rimmel Colour Show Off Lipstick
Yet another matte and affordable lipstick. I’ve got myself 3 shades and I adore them all. This lipstick is super pigmented and stays on for a very long time, the price is also a bonus. I wish they had the other design but that’s not the most important thing really.
Inglot Gel Lipstick
These lipsticks are amazing, the gel texture is brilliant, it’s quite
