It is almost the end of January, and I am still talking about my favourite beauty products of 2014…
This time it is all things body, hair and feet & hands. Here we go.
Garnier Oil Beauty Oil-Infused Nourishing Scrub (review)
This is such an amazing scrub for dry skin, it is not harsh, not drying, leaves the skin smooth and ready for the moisturizer. Add a nice scent and affordable price – and you get a perfect product!
Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Nourishing Body Lotion With Nordic Berry (review)
I have so many body creams, lotions and balms with different price tags but this is among my favourites. The scent is divine, the texture is gorgeous, and it moisturizes even my very dry skin. I have used up several bottle of this, and need a new one again.
Hands and Feet
Elemis Treat Your Feet Foot Cream (review)
Foot cream actually retails for £16 while this set is only £15 and you get this foot cream, two mini sized products ( Elemis [email protected] Tranquil Touch Indulgent Bath Elixir 50ml and Elemis [email protected] Tranquil Touch Creamy Body Wash 50ml) and a makeup bag.
I’ve had all the products previously and loved them so was excited to get the set! Click the links to read my detailed reviews.

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.
It is expensive: £24 for 100 ml from Feel Unique but I will definitely purchase it once this tube which I’ve got from Elemis runs out.
I think, you’ve probably noticed that these days I am trying to tell you about some beauty products that I enjoy using in winter. So today I want to tell you about the foot creams that impressed me the most. I am also going to tell you which foot cream my lovely Grandma (70) rates!
First of all I have to let you know that my feet are very dry and always seem to be in a bad condition. I am not even sure about the reason of this but I must keep them moisturized all the time!
The L’Occitane one contains shea butter, lavender essential oil and arnica extract, which makes the skin softer and it works great for tired feet! The cream is rich but not greasy; it smells really nice, too.
The Elemis one is my favourite out of these two. It is a part of
After being really impressed with the Neutrogena’s Norwegian Formula Concentrated hand cream (just got the second one) I’ve decided to get some other products from the range. So I’ve got myself the Deep Moisture Comfort Balm and the Cracked Heel Foot Cream.
And these are nice, I like the smell and the texture but unfortunately, the body balm is not enough for my very dry skin. I guess I should try using the hand cream all over the body as I love the concentrated formula.
As for the foot cream, although my feet are not cracked, they are kind of rough and this cream makes them softer just after I’ve used it. But I can’t say if the effect is long lasting since I gave it away to my grandma who is 70+ and who has a lot of problems with her feet. She told me that her feet are in a bit better condition after using this cream but since she used it only for 3 times I think it’s too early to talk about the healing but I will ask her about the results later.
So in general, these products are not bad especially for the price but the hand cream is definitely my favourite. I still want to try more Neutrogena products in the future so maybe you can share you favourites with me?
