I used to be lazy when it came to using hand cream. Do you know that weird noise your hands sometimes make when applying hand cream? It always gives me goosebumps. But now i am using hand cream on regular basis and also lovely butters and oils to nourish my hands. I prefer my hand cream to be fast absorbing and not leaving a greasy residue. Nice smell and cute packaging also do not hurt. And i am happy to say that natural brand Weleda fulfills this! 🙂 They also lately came with new products with pomegranate oil to also take care of your nails. Star of this line is pomegranate oil. Rich in antioxidants slows aging of the skin and prevents hyperpigmentation. It also beneficial for skin suffering eczema. Weleda has different product lines with specific scents, i like pomegranate the most so far. And their new products has also this scent, so yay! I have tried these products with pomegranate oil:
- Regenerative hand cream
- Oil pen for nails and cuticules
- Oil pencil for cuticules
My favourite product is the pomegranate hand cream! It has citrusy, fresh and somewhat sweet smell thanks to essential oil mix. It is similar to natural flavour of pomegranate. It is very easy to spread, my hands never feel greasy or sticky. It absorbs very well! Which i really like since i use it mainly at work. Nice!

Price: 9,16€ / 50mlOil pen for nails is pretty handy 😉 Especially when you don´ t like to use greasy products on your hands. You can apply this precisely when you need it – around your nails. I am used to use also nourishing butters and oils on my hands, so this pen is not really a must have for me. But i must admit it is lovely finishing touch after manicure, or when i need to nourish dry skin around my nails. All you need to do is to twist the end of this pen and the oils come out through the brush. Done!

Price: 9,4€ / 2,2mlCuticle softener helps to soften and remove cuticles. First you apply it on your cuticles to soften them and then you can remove them with the tip. I don´t really have problem with cuticles on my hands. So for me this is more suitable for pedicure. But since it is still not warm enough for open summer shoes, i am not very motivated to do pedicures 🙂 This will so much better for summer! Anyway, i tried it few times and it works well. There are also three additional tips you can switch.
