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
Today it’s time for part three of my 2012 beauty favourites and it’s all about body care and, I think, regular readers won’t be surprised by any of my picks. Especially considering that most of the products are from my favourite skincare brands.
For some reason in 2012 I’ve started using soaps instead of shower gels. Long gone are the days when soaps were harsh and drying, these days you can get some luxurious, creamy ones. I am absolutely in love with the set I’ve bought from Cowshed, would like to try other soaps the brand offers in the future.
Clarins Toning Body Polisher
Clarins have two body scrubs and I have written about both but my favourite has to be Toning Body Polisher (yellow one). Want to know why? Keep reading.
Clarins Extra-Firming Body Cream
2012 was the year ofRead More
