Product Review: Neutrogena & Joules Hand Creams

In the midst of the Christmas rush and chaos, I managed to squeeze in some time to review these products – Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Concentrated Hand Cream and Joules Cottage Herb Thyme to Unwind Hand Cream. I have been using both hand creams this winter, and I have found them both very handy in this cold season.

I always like to have hand creams in my handbag and around me. I get really dry hands, so hand creams are essentials in my life, I can’t do without them.

I got this Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Concentrated Hand Cream from my local Boots store some weeks ago, and I have used it every day.

Here is the product description:

Immediate and lasting relief for even the most dry hands.

Just a dab of this glycerin-enriched formula instantly relieves and protects seriously or chapped hands.

Even under the harshest conditions, it leaves hands noticeably soft and smoother.

Concentrated for over 200 applications.

Here are my thoughts:

PROS

  1. It moisturises my hands perfectly, leaving it softer and smoother.
  2. It is so concentrated, I only have to use a tiny amount.
  3. I love the compact packaging.
  4. It is very affordable at £3.85 for a 50ml tube.
  5. It is readily available in most stores.

CONS

None.

This product ticks all the boxes for me. If there was anything at all I would like to be included in this product, would be a sweet smelling fragrance. This hand cream is scented but very mild.

 

I also had the opportunity to use this Joules Cottage Herb Thyme to Unwind Hand Cream and I have fallen in love with it.

I believe this product is no out of stock so I will just go straight to my thoughts on it:

 

PROS

  1. I love the name of the product, so creative.
  2. I adore the pretty bright packaging. I think it is so Joules.
  3. I love this hand cream. It smells amazing and leaves my hands feeling and look moisturised.
  4. I love the texture.

 

CONS

None. I love everything about this Joules hand cream.

 

I would recommend both hand creams, I think they are both great and worth every penny. If I had to pick one, I would go for the Joules Cottage Herb Thyme to Unwind Hand Cream because it has an amazing fragrance, a very pretty packaging and it does the job perfectly.

 

Have you used any of these hand creams before? Which do you swear by?

Product Review: Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Powder

estee-lauder-double-wear-image

 

I have fallen in love with Estee Lauder products. I tried the Double Wear Foundation some months ago, and I fell completely in love with the product. It is the best foundation I have ever used, and I have used loads. So when my Mary Kay powder finally finished, I decided to try the Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Powder and I am glad I did.

Here is the product description:

8-hour staying power. Flawless all day. This worry-free powder makeup stays fresh, looks natural and won’t change colour, even through nonstop activity. Glides on silky smooth, stays on comfortably, without feeling dry. For a continuously flawless look, without touch-ups.

I went for the rich cocoa shade, same shade as my foundation. Here are my thoughts:

 

PROS

  1. It is long-lasting. It stayed on all day. I didn’t have to touch-up.
  2. It gives great coverage and natural finish.
  3. I love the compact package.
  4. It is readily available in various stores and in various shades, which is great.
  5. A little goes a long way.

CONS

None. Some may see it as pricey at £33 but I see it as value for money.

I apply my powder with a powder brush as you can see and the flawless matte finish is second to none. I am loving this Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Powder SO MUCH! Estee Lauder is gradually becoming the makeup brand to beat at the moment. I think the brand is slowly knocking MAC off the no 1 spot. Do you agree? It is a more expensive brand but many are happy to cough out that bit extra for quality. I know I am.

Have a fabulous weekend.
