October 2015 Beauty Favourites

October is one of my favourite months and I am kind of sad that it is over already but it was a great one despite the fact that I was ill for over a week.

I’ve decided that before talking about my beauty favourites, I’d mention some other things I like/enjoy:

  • I’ve finally went to my first swimming class after planning on going for months. Since I’ve got sick the next day I haven’t been back yet but I will be. Next week.
  • Downton Abbey. That 1920’s style…And I refuse to accept that it’s the last season.
  • Since I was ill for a week at home, I’ve got time to read and it was wonderful. I was mostly reading cultural and philosophical articles (yeah, I do love such topics) but here is my reading list.
  • And finally – Pinterest. This has to be my favourite social media, I am always browsing/pinning/saving photos.

Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in Alluring Rose (review and swatches)

This is probably my favourite launch of the year. Seriously, I could not love these blushes more than I do, and I feel like I have been going on, and on about them. They have the creamiest and softest texture, blend beautifully and have that all-in-one effect.  You don’t really need any highlighter or sculpting, just this. And

Aromatherapy Associates Renewing Rose Body Velvet Cream Review

Did you know that the best aromatherapy brand –  Aromatherapy Associates celebrates their 30th anniversary this year. They brought out a limited edition Rose Body Velvet just for the occasion.

It has a pink and gold design and comes in a minimalistic white packaging.

As for the cream itself, as the name suggests, it is like a velvet that melts into the skin, and leaves it nourished and moisturised. A great one even if you have very dry skin like myself. And it works wonders after the cold months when the skin needs some extra care and love.

Being AA, you can be sure that it contains the highest quality essential oils that not only make the skin softer and smoother but  also smell amazing. And

Aromatherapy Associates Renewing Rose Hand Cream Review. Rave

Being a huge  Aromatherapy Associates fan I was happy to try their new hands cream. Especially considering that I am slightly obsessed with hand creams… Plus, I am also a rose  scented products addict, so this looked like a win-win situation.

Aromatherapy Associates Renewing Rose Hand Cream ReviewI had  high expectations for this product, and it did not let me down.

I have very dry skin, and not all the products are doing that much for me. But this one does exactly what the brand promises: deeply nourishes,  hydrates, softens the skin, makes it smooth and silky.

Moreover, my friend had some serious issues, including a

This month I was away for two weeks (one week at one place, and then another one – different one), but I always had Elemis Skin Brush (review) with me, and I’ve used it religiously.  I personally use it on the dry body, brushing towards the heart.  The results are amazing, but you can read all the dets in my review linked above. I have two Elemis brushes, because I just had to! And I would definitely recommend you picking one up.

shu uemura Eyelash Curlers (review). I use these curlers every single day without a fail. Without them, my makeup is just incomplete, and my lashes don’t look that nice. A must-have for everyone.

I did take a picture of only ten products on purpose, so that I don’t go on and on in this post. But I just have to mention this Rouge Bunny Rouge brush, it’s my staple now.

My Must Have: Aromatherapy Associates Deep Relax Bath and Shower Oil

I love a good relaxing beauty product, and there is one that I just can’t live without! Aromatherapy Associates Deep Relax Bath and Shower Oil.

This is a cult product which won multiple awards and has a lot of die-hard fans, like myself. Why?

Aromathepary Assosiates Deep Relax Bath and Shower Oil review

Because it works!  It is the most effective relaxing beauty product that I came across, and I have tried a lot. I personally love using it as a bath oil, and also love dropping several drops on my pillow before going to bed. It is very concentrated so don’t use too much!

I also always
