Aromatherapy Associates Renewing Rose Body Velvet Cream Review

Did you know that the best aromatherapy brand –  Aromatherapy Associates celebrates their 30th anniversary this year. They brought out a limited edition Rose Body Velvet just for the occasion.

It has a pink and gold design and comes in a minimalistic white packaging.

Aromatherapy Associates Renewing Rose Body Velvet Cream Review (1)

As for the cream itself, as the name suggests, it is like a velvet that melts into the skin, and leaves it nourished and moisturised. A great one even if you have very dry skin like myself. And it works wonders after the cold months when the skin needs some extra care and love.

Being AA, you can be sure that it contains the highest quality essential oils that not only make the skin softer and smoother but  also smell amazing. And

Elemis Pro-Radiance Hand Cream Review and Photos

I am a huge fan of Elemis Pro-Radiance Body Cream so I was having huge expectations for this hand cream.

I have been using it for several weeks already so am finally ready to tell my opinion.

It has a smooth and luxurious but not greasy texture which absorbs pretty fast without leaving an oily residue and  makes the hands feel nourished and moisturized. I find that the feeling lasts for a long time and my hands and nails definitely started looking and feeling better after I’ve been using it. It totally saved my hands in the cold winter months and improved the condition of hands and nails in general.

Unfortunately,  I can’t find the box to take a photo of the ingredients but some of them are: milk protein, avellana seed oil, rare anti-ageing omega 7, camellia, virgin plum and macadamia.

It is expensive: £24 for 100 ml from Feel Unique but I will definitely purchase it once this tube which I’ve got from Elemis runs out.

I was told a lot of times that I believe in the things that are said in the commercials. Maybe it is true. But who doesn’t want a

Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment Cream Review and Photos

Hand cream is a product I can’t live without! I always have to have lot of  hand creams everywhere. I like trying new ones and finding the best from the range.

As you may remember, I had a big ‘Clarins moment’ not a long time ago and I’ve purchased quite a few of their products.  I was very happy to get this hand cream as a gift with purchase.

 Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment Cream retails  for £21 for 100 ml from Escentual.

This is a totally amazing product. It leaves my hands feeling (instantly!) very soft and moisturized without being greasy. It absorbs quickly and smells nice. I can’t tell you anything about nail strengthening but I am hoping it does work, too.

It is also promised that the cream
