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 “rainbow
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
Regular readers will know how obsessed I am with hand creams, I am always on the hunt for the nice new options, so after seeing a lot of raves about La Roche-Posay’s Cicaplast hand cream – I’ve decided to get a tube for myself.
This is a cream for damaged or overworked hands. And since my skin is very dry – that sounded like a prefect one for me.
And, I love it! It is such a great product. I only wish it had some kind of delicious scent to it, as for me a hand creams with a nice fragrance – is one of the ways to relax and enjoy a moment during a busy day. But being LRP – it is obvious that this is a scent-free product. And, I don’t mind actually…
As for the formula – the brand
It is almost the end of January, and I am still talking about my favourite beauty products of 2014…
This time it is all things body, hair and feet & hands. Here we go.
Garnier Oil Beauty Oil-Infused Nourishing Scrub (review)
This is such an amazing scrub for dry skin, it is not harsh, not drying, leaves the skin smooth and ready for the moisturizer. Add a nice scent and affordable price – and you get a perfect product!
Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Nourishing Body Lotion With Nordic Berry (review)
I have so many body creams, lotions and balms with different price tags but this is among my favourites. The scent is divine, the texture is gorgeous, and it moisturizes even my very dry skin. I have used up several bottle of this, and need a new one again.
Hands and Feet
Elemis Treat Your Feet Foot Cream (review)
Being a huge Aromatherapy Associates fan I was happy to try their new hands cream. Especially considering that I am slightly obsessed with hand creams… Plus, I am also a rose scented products addict, so this looked like a win-win situation.
I have very dry skin, and not all the products are doing that much for me. But this one does exactly what the brand promises: deeply nourishes, hydrates, softens the skin, makes it smooth and silky.
Moreover, my friend had some serious issues, including a
