Nivea Lipcare-CareGloss & Shine

 NIVEA Lip Care CareGloss & Shine range has trendy colors, yummy scents! The NIVEA Lip Care CareGloss & Shine comes  in Natural Gloss, Pink Shimmer and Red Glamour,  I have them in pink and natural.


The gloss is shiny, but not sticky and moisturizes really well with just enough color. The pink is quite sheer but applying multiple layers can make the color more intense., These glosses a nice shine to it ,they don't give this wet glossy look though, it isn't sticky or thick, and it doesn't moisturize as well as a regular lip balm, but it does fine.I am really happy to tell you that  "pink" is a real pink and not the frosty pink.The color is pretty sheer, only added a hint of color on my quite pigment lips.So pretty good if you want a natural look.
It Comes in a convenient squeeze tube with a slanted applicator tip , its small and makeup bag friendly.

Ingredients: Caregloss & Shine contains macadamia nut oil, the natural wax of Candelilla leaves, Vitamin E and the all-important glossy pigments.
 so if you want subtle, glossy shine and perfect moisture The Caregloss might be perfect for your everyday use.

Which Lipcare product is in your bag/purse these days?

Feed your hungry hands-Soap & Glory Hand Food

Hand Food™ is a silky soft non-greasy hand cream with shea butter, macadamia oil and marshmallow.
Mend a hand? Apply Hand Food™ Hand Cream as often as you want to soften, smooth and soothe dry, chapped or otherwise hampered hands. Soft, smooth and hydrated hands. The most astonishing hand cream ever? You decide!
Also available in Travel size

I have been suffering from dry hands in the winter weather,as I have wrote many times that i have incredibly dry skin and find my hands get really dry throughout the day, particularly after washing . Hand Food comes in a pink tube that contains 125ml. The pink flip top lid is easy enough to open and the cream appeared with just a gentle squeeze. The first thing to say is that this cream smells divine! The cream itself has a silky feel to it and is, as promised, not at all greasy. It rubs in easily, spreading over my hands well. It sinks in well and leaves hands smelling lovely, so  if my hands are not in need of any major pampering then I use this cream once a day just so they smell stays evident upon the skin for many hours after using. 

Lotus Flower
Shea Butter
Macadamia Oil
Shea Butter is one of the main ingredients and as soon as it penetrates the skin it leaves it feeling soft and smooth. Shea Butter also contains both vitamin A, E both which help to moisturize and keep your skin healthy. Macadamia oil absorbs itself quickly into the skin and is a very good emollient which in English means it helps to soften and soothe the skin and is particularly beneficial for dry, scaly skin. Emollients are often referred to in products such as lip-balms, hand lotions, lipsticks and body lotions in which oils such as Macadamia oil is used. Sweet Almond Oil is a further ingredient and in its capacity within this hand cream it is emollient and is again used to soften and soothe the skin whilst at the same time helping to balance the loss and absorption of moisture which stops the skin on your hands from drying and becoming troublesome. 

Summary:A lovely hand cream. Smells great, very fruity and very feminine,The smell is sweet but not in a sickly way, rather in a soft, gentle and inoffensive way.Absorbs well and lasts ages as you only need a tiny amount to cover both hands.  will i buy it again?? YES! YES! YES!

Soap & Glory products are not tested on animals and more information can be found at  

what do you feed your hands?

BodyShop-Peppermint Cooling Leg Gel

Body Shop Peppermint Cooling Leg Gel

Best if you want to: Rejuvenate your tired, aching legs and stimulate circulation with an energizing, lightweight gel that provides a cool, refreshing boost.

Best for: all skin types
How it works:

    * Community Trade peppermint oil promotes a cooling sensation to leave feet feeling refreshed and helps to combat odor.
    * Horse chestnut is rich in antioxidants that protect skin’s structure and improve circulation and tone.

Key Ingredient:

Peppermint essential oil
Helps to leave your feet feeling cool, refreshed and fragranced. Helps to overcome foot odor

Tips:Soak feet using the Peppermint Cooling Foot Soak. Apply Peppermint Cooling Foot Lotion to your feet so they feel as refreshed as your legs!

How to use :Pour the gel into your hands and massage over your legs, as required.The main use is of course on legs: when tired, swelling, and aching. Whether tired from standing around, or heat, or damp, or plain old overused muscles.
Just squeeze out a dollop and smooth over skin; leave for a few minutes before rubbing in, & massaging.In Pakistan we have usually hot and humid days so i use it to cool my skin down or  it can work on sunburns to bring relief to your skin. 
The scent of peppermint oil and eucalyptus oil smells so great, it calms you down and releases tension even before you apply it to your feet, ankles and legs, so I don't forget to smell it before i start applying it on my legs.
The gel rubs on smoothly and dries quickly, but does leave your legs feeling a little sticky, but it wont stain your clothes as its non greasy.

One word of advise : this may cause reactions on recently-shaved/waxed  legs! OUCH

(Ignore the condition of Bottle, it suffered alot in  hands of my 4yr old nephew*mwah love him sooo very much)) 

Would you try it in this summer ?
