Today we’re loving Crabtree & Evelyn Citron Hand Therapy (R300). We’ve been gaga for this range since it launched. As well as lemon, the scent is infused with honey and coriander as well, making it smell absolutely divine! The formula is lightweight, so it absorbs really quickly, and doesn’t leave your hands sticky.

 

The cream itself is highly moisturising thanks to it’s high Shea butter content. It also contains ceramides 3 and 6, which help protect the skin’s barrier; reducing moisture loss. This is helped by the addition of Hyaluronic acid, which is a super hero moisture retainer (it can hold up to 1000 times it’s weight in water).
 

Your nails are not forgotten either, as myrrh extract makes sure they are nourished and moisturised.

And finally, we’re happy to say that it doesn’t contain any nasty lauryl sulfates, mineral oils or parabens!
We know, 300 bucks seems pretty steep for a hand cream, but it is amazing, and will last you ages, we promise.

Today I’m loving these watercolour pendants by Milame, made by the very talented Emma Atkinson whose designs I stumbled upon after browsing through handsomethings.com.

Today we’re loving Clarins Smoothing Body Scrub for a new skin (R385.) This is by no means a new product (it won ‘Best Body Scrub’ in the Allure 2006 Beauty Awards), but we’ve recently re-discovered it. And, well, we’re obsessed all over again.

 

The main ingredient in this peachy-coloured scrub is Bamboo Powder, which softens the skin like crazy! It effortlessly sloughs away dead skin, stimulating cellular renewal, revealing beautiful, firmer skin underneath. It is helped by Moringa Extract, which helps remove excess toxins; Mimosa Tenuiflora which repairs the skin;Liquorice extract to soften; and finally, Cyamopsis (a type of herb) and Shea to protect and nourish.

 

Because it leaves your skin so silky smooth, and soft, it also helps your moisturiser penetrate deeper, giving your skin a radiant glow. Use once or twice a week on dry or damp skin.

Today we’re loving Maybelline Volum’ Express Colossal Cat Eyes Mascara (R114.95). We know this sounds like a mouthful, but it’s thankfully an eyeful as well. This latest addition to Maybelline’s mascara arsenal would make Cleopatra weep. The cleverly designed brush curls, defines and lengthens in just one sweep. It ensures that every lash is coated, giving you the most envious of feline flicks. The lush collagen-enriched formula will give an unbelievable volume boost without clumps or weight.
