I’ve wanted to try EOS products for a long time but for some reason never got around getting anything but this month I have finally purchased their hand lotion which I’ve shared on my Instagram to carry around with me.
Funnily enough, right after that, one of my best friends (she is not even into beauty) gave me a book she thought I’d love and an EOS lip balm which was a very cool surprise. Now, that I have both, I am ready to share my thoughts.
As for the hand lotion, the one I have is Berry Blossom but you can also get Cucumber (green) and Fresh Flowers (blue). The first thing that you notice is how comfortable the shape of the tube is, it fits the hand perfectly, what a great design. It is also a perfect size to carry around with you in the handbag, as it is only 44 ml.
The formula, it is awesome, too. Although I personally love heavier textures, this lotion is light and non-greasy but still moisturizing, I use it several times per day, and it keeps my hands soft and smooth, and smells great. I will be
This winter I have finished so many body lotions/creams/ butters, and I did want to do the empties feature but all those bottles got on my nerves, and I threw them away. However, I will share about one of my favourites – The Scottish Fine Soaps Company Tangled Rose Body Butter.
I actually bought it because of the name, regular readers will know that I am obsessed with rose scented beauty products, and even tea and coffee with rose! I also really liked all the products from the Scottish Fine Soaps Company that I have tried in the past so had high hopes for this body butter.
And it is nice. The scent is really lovely, it is described as “roses, amber, cedarwood and a hint of
Kind Natured, an affordable natural brand (it is promised that the products are free of Sulphates, Parabens and Petrochemicals; and are 97% natural in general) brought out two new lines recently, and I was kindly sent some products to try out.
Two new ranges are:
- Shea & Macadamia – described as deeply nourishing and formulated for very dry skin.
- Coconut & Monoi – described as moisturising and formulated for normal and dry skin
Each line has three products so far: Foaming Sugar Scrub (£5.99), Body Lotion (£5.99) and a Hand Cream (£4.99).
So what are my thoughts?
First of all, I think it was a clever idea to bring out the scented products at this time of year when we all are a bit tired of the cold months and crave the sun. Both lines have that sweet exotic scent, and make me personally think of a summer holiday and cocktails on the beach, they are like a summer-in-a-bottle. Although the
I have started using eye creams on a regular basis pretty early, and I believe that a good eye cream can make a difference. And Elemental Herbology Eye Elixir is a good one. In fact, possibly the best eye cream I’ve used. I am actually a huge fan of the brand, in general.
Why do I like it so much?
The main reason is that it is rich and moisturising without feeling heavy or greasy. I have very dry skin, and light-weigh creams don’t do that much for me. Plus, not being 20 anymore, I want to take a good care of my under eye area and prevent the early signs of ageing.
And I find that
Considering that I have already written about Clarins twice this week, and the fact that they are adding an eye cream to the Multi-Active line, it seemed like a good idea to publish the feature which was in my drafts for several months already. And we are talking about Clarins New Multi-Active Day cream for all skin types.
I am a big fan of Clarins creams, especially the HydraQuench (I’ve been buying that range for years), and also the Daily Energizer which I’ve had more than once, as well, so I was happy to get a sample of the latest launch, 46 weeks ago (according to my Instagram, ahem). But it is better late than never, right? Plus, now I have a better impression, as I have already used the cream up, as you can tell from the photos.
According to the brand, Multi-Active Day cream “prevents and visibly corrects the appearance of fine lines thanks to new Myrothamnus extract. The new extract minimises the impact of daily stress to help keep skin smooth and radiant. With technology powered by plant extracts and the latest breakthroughs in botanical research, these treatments visibly diminish the first signs of ageing, restore radiance, hydrate and maintain younger looking skin.”
My first impression is that it is a
