Can’t live without – FMSphotoaday Day 27


Hello my Beauties,

hope your new week has started well and you are motivated & full of energy.

Today is Day 27 of the May Photo a Day Challenge and the topic is: “Can’t live without“.
27. Can’t live without: What would you rather not live without?

It’s one of those philosophical questions, where you get to decide whether you want to answer it the smart & “indispensable” way or from the beauty and lifestyle blogger (and simply a woman’s) point of view. 
Guess what – we are on a beauty journey here, so here is my short photo answer to the question, what i can’t live without. 😉
hand cream collectionWell, those of you, who are following my blog from the beginning know exactly, what a hand cream addict i am.
I simply have to have at least one tube in each handbag, on my desk, in the bathroom, in my kitchen…i guess you get the picture. 

I can’t live without my hand creams.

I love those Hand and Nails treatments, like the Clarins one which is incredibly moisturizing, but also those  nice chocolate or fruity smelling ones. 🙂
Did you notice, these tubes know exactly how important they are, they even wear their impressive mustaches! 😉

I like trying different kind of hand creams from everywhere in the world. So far a have a few bulgarian, german, american, russian, canadian and israeli ones. I bet there are more to come! 🙂

What kind of hand creams do you love the most & why?
What are you beauty products you can’t live without?

Tell me your secrets.
Until next time – stay beautiful!

  1. I really like L’Occitane products. Now you have me interested in Clarins.

    • L’Occitane hand creams are great, but i have to say personally i like Crabtree & Evelyn a tiny bit better. Maybe because of their scent selection…
      I can def recommend the Clarins hand treatment, it’s a really good investment! Sometimes it comes in a set of 2 or 3 different products (like with a body lotion & feet treatment). Look out for those. 🙂

  2. Ha! This is great you certainly have a lot of handcreams! Lately I’ve been using one by Caudalie, it’s a bit lighter but I love it.

  3. That is quite a collection you’ve got there! 🙂 I don’t even have one… I keep thinking I should buy it, but then I get distracted to other things. I kinda hope that whatever gets on my hands from applying face cream is enough. Oh boy, I sound terribly negligent of my hands LOL

    • Hahaha Olga! Yes you seem to neglect your hands a bit, but i guess they don’t tend to get too dry during the day, otherwise you would have bought one already.
      I like to use creams for my hands & nails, helps a lot with the cuticles. 🙂
      Let me know, if you get any soon.
      I would suggest either the CAUDALIE
      Hand and Nail Cream or the Karite Handcreme by L’Occitane or even one of the many different Hand Therapy by Crabtree & Evelyn.
      Often they have those mini sets of 3/6 small tubes, where you can try different kind of creams and pick your fav. I love the Hand Therapy ones the most.

  4. Hihi I can’t live without … On nr 1 my husband, and then … Lipbalm, cutticle oil and armcandy

  5. My favorite hand cream is Desert Essence Pumpkin Cream hand cream! It is so moisturizing and smells divine!

  6. I have yet to find the Holy Grail of hand creams, although L’Occitane’s shea butter foot cream works well. I know it says “foot”, but I use it anywhere I’m especially dry and that applies to my hands.

  8. White chocolate hand cream ? Wow… Am envious of that 😀 As you know, my favs are the scented ones, cherry, cherrier and well, cherry, perhaps?! But hand cream and lip gloss/ cream (lately Carmex, cherry flavour….=) are always there in my purse on every occasion. I guess I should pay more attention to the quality instead of the scent, but what can I do… am a scentaholic 😉

    • Oh i know exactly what you mean by scentaholic 😉
      They don’t sell Camex with flavor here.
      The white chocolate hand cream was a limited edition and is a really light lotion, that lasts about an hour.
