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
Don’t we all want radiant glowing complexion for Spring/Summer? We want it all year round but after those dull grey winter months, especially. This is why the brands are brining out so many products from this category. Here are four new ones that are worth your attention.
“Light correcting primers that blur, smooth and perfect the skin for a soft, subtle glow. The oil-free, weightless formulas neutralize, brighten and soften light as the first step in creating your perfect light.”
- Dim Light – A natural beige that neutralizes light to create soft, dim lighting
- Luminous Light – A champagne pearl that brightens light to create a luminous candlelit glow
- Mood Light – A soft, sheer pink that softens light to create the most forgiving mood lighting

Max Factor Glossfinity nail polish in 85 Cerise was an impulse purchase but I love it so much that I recently bought a second bottle, as I’ve used up the first one. And that says a lot, considering how many nail polishes I have, and red ones in particular.
It is a gorgeous glossy warm toned red which looks opaque even with one coat. It is like the coolest accessory for your nails, it brightens up everything. As dramatic as it sounds – Cerise makes me feel incredible, and I never want to be without it.
I have mentioned it so many times but somehow never posted a proper swatch, so here it is. (I am also wearing it here)
As I’ve already said, it looks great even with one coat, this formulaRead More

Since I use eye liner almost on a daily basis, I have very high demands for it. I have been using Rouge Bunny Rouge for years, until they’ve changed the nib. After considering different options: reading reviews and swatching in stores – I’ve decided to try ArtDeco Long Lasting Liquid Liner.
I like this German brand a lot, their products are always high quality and are not expensive.
And this liner is absolutely brilliant! I have been using it since February non-stop, it was even in my monthly favourites, and want to share my impression. Easy to use, this is the exact nib I was looking for, I personally don’t like those ultra thin ones. The colour is ultra black and intense. The formula is great, it glides on like a dream without dragging the skin.Read More
