MakeUp4All AUTUMN 2011 Online Beauty Magazine

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.

Aromatherapy Associates Renewing Rose Hand Cream ReviewI had  high expectations for this product, and it did not let me down.

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

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.

Yes! Nurse Protect Your Lovely Hands Intensive Moisturising Hand Cream Review

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. Hence

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 ShampooSahajuan 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.

Favourite Beauty Products of 2012: Body Care

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.

Cleansers

Cowshed Soaps

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.

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: £22 for 100 ml but I will definitely purchase it once this tube which I’ve got from Elemis runs out.
