The Lipstick League – week of 18.06.12

Posted by Lipglossiping On June - 23 - 2012

Question of the Week: – What’s your current favorite hand cream?

Answer:- Hand Cream is one of those boring but necessary items if you abuse your cuticles as much as I do.  My favourite hasn’t changed over the past twelve or so months and I’m still loving the All for Eve Hand Cream by Urban Retreat. It’s rich but non-greasy and does the job without making me sell a kidney to pay for it.  I wouldn’t usually link to Ocado (oh, the glamour!) but a google search revealed that’s it’s currently on sale there for £4.50, that’s 40% off if you happen to be doing your food shop online this weekend!

On with the links!  Check out the last entry for a new Lipstick League feature, the choice of which (I’m honoured to say) fell to me this week!

    Have you tried the Garnier Intensive 7 Days handcreams? They’re only about £2.99 (think I got mine on offer for £1.99), but they are amazing – hands feel soft and smooth even after handwashing!
