Back in March I was away to a spa trip for my Birthday with one of my best girlfriends. Of course, I had to check her favourite beauty products as she has a very good taste in everything. And it was all mostly Weleda. I haven’t tried that many products (here is a review of the birch body scrub), so I had to go Weleda shopping when I came home.
And I’ve got myself their Citrus Creamy Body Wash.
And it is pretty nice, I have two main requirements for a shower gel – for it to smell nice, and not to be drying, and it ticks both boxes.
With my very dry skin, I don’t really believe in moisturizing shower products but this out isn’t drying (no SLS in the ingredients list), as I already said, so that is good. I use a cream/butter/oil/lotion afterwards anyway.
As for the scent – it was exactly what I was looking for, a zesty, invigoration and uplifting. I was looking for a new morning shower gel, as IRead More
Regular readers know that I am a hand cream fanatic, and I have written so many features on the ones I like during these seven years. The latest post was on Aveeno and Neal’s Yard Remedies, along with cheaper alternatives from Nivea and Garnier. Here is also a selection of my top 5 hand creams (which probably should be revisited).
And here are my latest discoveries…
& Other Stories Couture Carnival Hand Lotion
I am so in love with this lotion that I have bought two bottles! The beautiful minimalistic Scandinavian design, the convenient pump, the light and non-greasy but, at the same time, moisturizing texture. And the smell. Oh, the smell of it!
I mean, you can’t go wrong with with something described as “rainbowRead More
I definitely did not need another shower gel but Soap & Glory Whipped Clean Shower Butter got my attention, and I wanted to try it. I’ve actually picked it up without even smelling it, as I wanted it to be a surprise. I’ve bought it, as it sounded like a nice product for dry skin…
So what was my impression?
At first I was not a big fan of the scent but now I am addicted, and I mean it. It smells of almonds, pistachios and vanilla, intoxicating and sweet. I totally get the warning “This is not food” on the tube. Maybe it is not the best product for those on a diet as it will probably make you crave a dessert.
Besides the scent, I also like theRead More
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 whenRead More
Considering that Aromatherapy Associates Soothing Cleansing Balm is one of the best cleansers I have ever used, it is surprising that I have not written about it earlier.
This cleanser has a lovely formula that works great for an evening facial massage, it is not greasy or tacky, just a nice balmy texture. The product doesn’t have a strong overpowering scent, it smells of camomile to me.
I personally take off my makeup with a micellar water first, and then use this lush cleanser, as I’d rather massage my skin with it, instead of taking off my mascara (which you can obviously do, if you want to).
It works great forRead More
