Human + Kind All in one Body Oil

Another Irish brand for ye today,  Human + Kind.  I have to say the Irish skin care industry are coming out with some amazing brands/products these days!

Anyway I love body oils, I find them more moisturizing for my skin as they absorb really easily into the skin.

Human + Kind’s Body oil is an all in one meaning it’s a multitasker you can use it everywhere even for your hair to keep  the ends healthy and conditioned.

Human+Kind Body Oil €14.95 75ml Continue reading

February Valentines Edition Glossybox

I was very jealous of everyone who got lat month Glossybox so I treated myself this month to one :) Actually I’m waiting on another one as I used a special paypal code to get a glosybox from another month free, yippeee! :D

Here’s what I got:

valentines feb '13 glosybox

Dr.Renaud moisturiser smells of raspberries and it’s sickly sweet, also it doesn’t have an SPF so I will only use this at night.

Glossybox Dr.Renaud Raspberry face cream
Anatomicals body wash
…..meh….like a 300ml bottle is £2.99 so a bit cheap for Glossybox and nothing special about it

Modelco eyeshadow duo, I thought this would be a good product but the highlighting/shimmer colour is cheap feeling, it’s quite gritty and very hard to blend without there being some colour as you can see in the pic. The brown is nice though, sort of a gold shade to it.
model co swatch eyeshadow
Micabella Cometics Mineral Powder Blush in Terra Cotta I haven’t had a chance to try this yet but it does look nice, not something I would probably buy though as it says it’s £34.95 for 9g

Helen É Liptick in Raspberry is my favourite product from the box, I’d never heard of this brand before. The colour is gorgeous and thank god IT doesn’t smell like raspberries too lol! Feel really moisturising too :)

and a very tasty lollypop which I’m having right now as I type :)

All in all I’m not too impressed but hey at least I’m getting another one free which should be here in a few day and I do always use the boxes for something too ;)

Tell me what you got in your Glossybox this month and did you like them? x

Garnier Hand Cream for mama’s dry hands

I go through so many hand creams, like all mothers know your hands get so dry from washing bottles, cleaning and detergents all drying out your hands, nails and cuticles!! So I have loads of hand creams lying around. I recently lost my jar of hand cream from the handmade soap companynever mind I found it in the car lol! Anyway I went to Boots and saw this new Garnier Intensive 7 days one reduced to just €3 something  ;)

Garnier Intensive 7 day hand cream

So this is my new favourite, it’s really rich and thick. I hate ones that are watery, they do nothing! This one is very moisturising and absorbs quickly too.  It’s not sticky either which is another dislike of mine with any sort of cream. It contains L-Bifidus*, an anti-evaporating hydraing ingredient and Mango Oil to intensely nourish and soften hands. This smells so lovely too. It’s only after looking on their site that I realise they do other creams in this range, one for normal skin and very dry skin. I got the dry skin one, but I’m gonna pick up the very dry one next time!

Dry hands and cuticles

My poor dry hands and cuticles……a work in progress!

This is my 1st time trying a Garnier hand cream and I’m impressed. Tell me, have you tried this before or what’s your all time best hand moisturizer?
