L'Occitane Pivoine Sublime Skin Perfector Spring Summer 2015 Skincare 1

.

In April, L’Occitane revamped its Pivoine Flora range and extended the Pivoine lineup with the new Pivoine Sublime skincare range. As far as I know, this is the second renewal of the original Paeonia range, which was released in 2010. (Read my review of Paeonia Eau de Toilette here.) Today I will be reviewing three items from the Pivoine Sublime range (Skin Perfector, Perfecting Cream and CC Skin Tone Perfecting Cream) and the relaunched Pivoine Flora Hand Cream.

Paul and Joe Nail Treatment Oil Jill Stuart Treatment Nail Essence Summer 2013 2014 Handcare Nailcare 1

.

Back in 2008, I posted about the cute nail and cuticle oils I had. As I said, they are not absolute necessities for me and I don’t use them on a daily basis. However, I did get two more in the last couple of years. (Yes, I still like the cute-looking ones……)

Paul and Joe Hand Cream R Holiday 2014 Bodycare 1

.

Earlier, I talked about Paul & Joe‘s Makeup Collection 2014 in 001 Little Star and Pressed Powder T in 001 Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star for holiday 2014. Today I will share my thoughts on Hand Cream R from the collection.

The floral print on Paul & Joe’s Face & Eye Color CS in 073 42nd Street & Lipstick C in 072 SoHo from the fall 2011 makeup collection is among my favorite prints from the brand, so I was excited to see it on Hand Cream R from the fall/winter 2014 bodycare and fragrance collection. (In the UK, the three Hand Creams are part of the holiday 2014 collection. The two Fragrance Hair & Body Mists are not available in the UK).

Vecua Honey Wonder Honey Honey Dew Hand Creams 1

.

Today, my Stash Debut series, which highlights my first purchases from various brands/lines, focuses on Vecua Honey.

Launched in April 2011, Vecua Honey is a sister brand of the Japanese beauty brand Vecua. While Vecua (debuted in 2003) is a high-end brand sold in department stores and has a clean and sophisticated look (see my brand profile on Vecua), Vecua Honey’s image is more youthful, fun and whimsical. Vecua Honey’s products feature honey as well as other natural ingredients.
