First things first – this smells amazing! The MuLondon White Chocoalte Elbow, Knee & Heel Cream is based on shea butter and also includes jojoba oil and coconut butter. It is really great for keeping elbows soft and helping with cracked skin on heels. Cocoa extracts and bourbon vanilla are used to fragrance the cream naturally and it doesn’t contain any mineral oils, parabens, silicones or other man-made chemicals. The cream costs £19 for 60ml and is a really luxurious product that works brilliantly!
For the last month or so I’ve been using the Queen Eyelash Cream every day. The Eyelash Cream was first created in the 1930s to condition, repair and define lashes and it’s suitable for sensitive eyes. I was really sceptical when I started using the cream (which is definitely more of a balm!) and I really didn’t think it would make any difference at all to my lashes. I was so wrong! I rub the balm on my lashes after I’ve removed all of my makeup in the evening and leave it to work overnight. I’ve always had pretty sparse eyelashes but I think they’ve started to become a bit thicker since I started using this product. I’ve also noticed that far fewer eyelashes fall out when I take my eye makeup off so they seem to be getting stronger. This pot is going to last for ages as well – I’ve barely dented the top of the balm and I’ve been using it for weeks – so it’s totally worth the £10.25. Apparently the balm can also be used to define your eyelashes if you don’t want to wear mascara, but I think this would probably only work if you have dark eyelashes. You can also use it to keep your eyebrows neat.
Has anyone else tried this brilliant product? I’d love to know what you think!
I think I have a bit of a hand cream problem – I’ve got way too many! I seem to have them dotted around the house as well as one in each of my bags but I do use them all so I feel it’s justified! Lots of them absorb at different rates and they all smell different so I’ve got one for every occasion, whether I’m in a rush and need it to sink in quickly or I need some intense moisture for winter hands.
Anyway, the latest addition to my collection is the Lanolips Rose Balm Intense which contains more than 95% natural ingredients, including lanolin which is a natural substance coming from shorn sheep’s wool. The balm has a light, delicate scent and actually sinks in surprisingly quickly seeing as it is ‘intense’. It just leaves my hands feeling slightly tacky for a few minutes after applying rather than leaving them greasy which is nice. It is really great at moisturising and I also like using it to keep my nails and cuticles in good condition.
You can buy Lanolips Rose Balm Intense from Boots – £9.18 for 50ml (plus it’s on the 3 for 2 offer at the moment!).
