Hand Cream Love: J.R. Watkins and Brooks & Waters

I am the biggest hand cream fan ever,  I have mentioned so many hand creams on the website already, and posted quite a few over at my Instagram, too.

So today I want to show you my two newest loves, both were gifts from my friends which is very sweet of them. One was brought to me from Canada, and the other one from the USA.

J.R. Watkins Shea Butter Hand Cream ( get  it from Amazon and Amazon UK)

I used this one mostly during the winter, as it is very nourishing and quite thick formula-wise (check out all the butters and oils in the ingredients list).   I honestly think this is one of the

The Scottish Fine Soaps Company Argan Oil Soap Review

A great thing about having your own website is the fact that you can write whatever and  whenever you want. So today’s feature is inspired by my girlfriends. The thing is that I have been telling some of them how much I love this soap, so I would like to share with my readers and fellow beauty lovers, too.

A soap, really? Yes! I personally think that The Scottish Fine Soaps are fantastic. The thing is that it almost feels like a cream, not a soap, so silky and smooth. Although, I use a body cream afterwards all the time, if your skin is not as dry as mine, most likely

EOS Hand Lotion and Lip Balm Review

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

The Scottish Fine Soaps Company Tangled Rose Body Butter Review

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 Body Care For Dry and Very Dry Skin Review

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
