L’Occitane Hand Creams Photos and Review. Plus a New Collection

It’s easier to tell what  is not inside my handbag… Among others things, I always have a hand cream with me.  This is why small sized hand creams are always welcomed.

I’ve picked two L’Occitane mini-sized hand creams the other day to carry them around with me. I’ve got a  Rose Hand Cream because I love everything with a rose scent and a Shea Butter Hand Cream which is made for dry skin.

Rose Hand Cream has a scent of Grasse rose, the Bulgarian rose, the Moroccan rose and the Turkish rose which I absolutely love. The cream itself is light but pretty moisturizing.

As for Shea Butter Hand Cream, it is

It’s been forever since I did a post about the products in my shower, and I am always curious to see what products other people use, so thought I’d share about mine, too.

Shower & Bath Products Of The Week

1. Clarins Tonic Bath & Shower Concentrate – review.

This is an instant pick-me-up product. I love using it in the mornings, or after a workout. I am a big fan of Clarins Tonic range in general, by the way.

I really love this spicy and warm fragrance, very  comforting, and is a perfect  scent for a colder weather.

Inside My Makeup Bag: Lip Products

I have a habit of accumulating lip products in my bag… Although it got batter with time, I still have around three – five by the end of the week.

So, I’ve decided to look inside the makeup bag that I carry with me (and it’s only Wednesday) and see what  lip products are there, and here are the results.

This is a very good lip balm, and, I think, I have with me pretty much all the time. It is moisturising without being greasy, exactly what I like in a balm.

My Top 5 Hand Creams

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.

My-Top-5-Hand-Creams-Elemis-Clarins-Yes-Nurse-LOccitane-Aromatherapy-Associates-Makeup4allElemis 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
