I know that a lot of readers are wondering what to get their husbands/boyfriends (or even brothers/fathers/male friends) for Christmas.
This is why I have asked “men from my life” what they would like to get – to share with you some ideas. I just hope that now they won’t think that I am getting all those things for them…
I have promised not to give away their names, so here are just the quotes and age group. Most of my male friends are 30-35 but I have asked several younger and several older men, for the variety. 1 “Post shaving products. I’d prefer my favourite brand, but it’s not that important, as long, as they are good” (At least four men said that).
- My recommendation: Geo F Trumper ( and US link). I plan to get some products for my brother and Dad, in fact.
2 “A good facial cream. I have started using them after your (Ed. - that’d be mine) recommendation, and now I can’t imagine not having one. Every men needs it! I love Dior and Shiseido.” (Age group 30-35)
3. ” A new cologne would be amazing. I loveRead More
Regular readers will probably know that a good hand cream is a must have for me. If I could have only one beauty product with me in my bag, that’d be it (and a lip balm, if I can have two).
I have very dry skin, especially on the hands, and I love to re-apply the cream whenever I need to do it
or feel like doing it.
This is why I’ve decided to share my personal top 5 hand creams. Unfortunately, most of them are not cheap but I, personally, am ready to pay for the quality.
Elemis Pro-Radiance Hand Cream (review)
It is probably my favourite hand cream ever, it instantly makes the skin feel moisturized and smooth, such a relief, especially in the cold(er) months. Plus I could totally tell that my nails were in much better condition when I was using it.
The price is £24 from Feel Unique
Aromatherapy Associates Renewing Rose Hand Cream (review)
Another favourite of mine, thisRead More
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 aRead More
Regular readers know that I am a hand cream addict. And I’ve been wanting to try Yes! Nurse Protect Your Lovely Hands Intensive Moisturising Hand Cream for a while, since I’ve heard quite a few great things about it.
First of all, I just have to mention the most amazing packing it comes in, what a cute and fun design and idea. Plus I do like the tube itself, too. Although it is 50 ml, it is sleek and not bulky which makes is very helpful when you, like myself, like to carry your hand cream with you everywhere.
I also like the story behind this cream. It was supposedly developed for a paediatric nurse who wanted to use it at work. HenceRead More
I’ve decided to make a feature on top three products, in my opinion, in different categories. Holy Grail, if you wish.
Although I love trying new products, I am sure that I will be re-purchasing these ones in the future. In fact, I have already bought a second bottle of the serum.
Best Volumizing Shampoo - Sahajuan Volume Shampoo
This is definitely the best volumizing shampoo, among those that I have tried. This was an impulse purchase, although I usually research before I buying beauty products. And I am so happy that I’ve got it.
It gives nice volume without feeling heavy or weighting the hair down, plus I find that my hair looks shiny with it. As I’ve already said – I will be getting more products from the brand in the future.
Best Hydrating Serum Clarins HydraQuench Bi-Phase Serum
This product is a skin saviour inRead More
