Beginning of the year is a great time to invest in a new facial oil or serum, or better – both. I personally bought myself a rose oil from REN but here are three brand new products that you may be interested in.
And while some brands that were originally specialising in beauty are now launching skincare, brands that produce makeup are now very much into launching skincare lines. Here are two examples – Bobbi Brown and Trish McEvoy. Laura Mercier launched a rose oil not a long time ago, too.
Bobbi Brown just launched Bobbi Brown Remedies line, just in time for 2017, and the product shown is “formulated for severely parched, uncomfortable skin, this Sodium Hyaluronate-infused solution works like a moisture magnet, instantly binding moisture to skin’s surface. The result is deeply moisturized skin that’s supple, never taut. Helps increase skin’s natural moisturizing factor-Helps restore skin’s optimal moisture levels-Minimizes tautness.

Can you actually believe that it is May, the fifth month of the year?! Time flies, it feels as if it was 1st of January only yesterday. And this month I actually have quite a few products, including some amazing new discoveries.
Max Factor Glossfinity Nail Polish in 85 Cerise (review and swatches)
I have already finished a bottle of this, and am going through my second one, and I am wearing this, as I type, too. Such a gorgeous vibrant, juicy and glossy warm-toned red, it brightens up any look, and (almost) any mood. I am a fan.

Other products I have been using all the time are Inglot Sculpting HD Powder in 504 (review) which I talk about non-stop, as it is my favourite product for adding
