A miracle for dry hands


If you have extremely sore and dry hands or normal dry hands, I personally find Helping Hands (hand cream) from Lush is truly an amazing product. You must try it.

Although I do not have sore hands, I do notice my hands feeling dry during the day (especially in winter) and find myself applying hand cream several times to keep my hands moisturised.

In the case of Helping Hands cream, I applied it in the morning and noticed my hands were surprisingly moisturised for the whole day. Even after washing my hands several times, they felt hydrated, nourished and moisturised. There was no need to re-apply the cream. The difference is noticeable after just one application. Truly impressed.

The cream is not too greasy, the smell is neutral and nice – nothing too strong. I would say both men and women can use it. It is very nourishing and great value for money (£7.50/100gm).

Looks like this may be my all time favourite hand cream – I’m loving it.

Brow Enhancing Pencil


Perfectly threaded brows + High Brow pencil is all you need to have brows that make a statement.

Benefit High Brow is all about defining the brow. It’s designed to highlight the brow bone which lifts and enhances the brows with a “soft matte linen-pink” shade. The colour is very subtle and natural looking (of course you can go heavy-handed or light-handed, depending on the effect you desire). The application can be explained in 3 easy steps:

  1. Apply under your brow following your arch on brow bone toward the outer corner
  2. Lightly dot above the arch to clean the shape
  3. Blend with finger (the creamy texture surely makes it easy to blend!)

One of the great things about High Brow is that it so versatile. You can use it for more minimal looks or even on its own when you are going for a natural look.

We like High Brow for more minimal looks; using it under the shaped and filled brows with pop of mascara – this frames your eyes perfectly for a natural look. The creaminess of the product makes it easy to blend, and it dries down quickly and holds up fairly well alone (about six hours).

Try it out, it’s  a simple must have and easy to use!
