New Beauty Purchases

I haven’t posted a “New Purchases” feature in ages because I haven’t really been buying beauty products lately, but here is  finally a round-up of my newest picks (which I have already posted at my Instagram).

Clarins Gentle Foaming cleanser for dry or sensitive skin

I have posted about Clarins cleansers and toners, and about to publish the second part. This is actually the only Clarins cleanser  (suitable for my skin type) that I haven’t tried yet, so it was about time. So far, I enjoy using it so expect a feature.

Clarins Day Screen Multi-Protection SPF 50

This is a must have product in my daily skincare routine, in fact, I have

October 2017 Beauty Favourites

I don’t have that many favourites this month but I really love each and every one a lot.

Givechy Phenomen’ Eyes Mascara in Deep Black (from  Neiman MarcusBarneysHarrods, Sephora, Escentual and Nordstrom)

I am huge fan of Givenchy Noir Couture Mascara, and I really like this one, too. This ball-shaped mascara has been around for a while but I have tried it only this year and only because I’ve bought it by accident (did not return it because the lady at Givenchy told me it is her favourite). And I am happy I’ve kept it, as it is great. It takes time to get used to this shape but once you do – you can get incredible results: think, long and black lashes. I also like the fact that this mascara stays on without smudging all day. The only thing I’d  say is that this is not a I-am-in-a-rush product, it does take some time to build up the effect but it is worth it, in my opinion.

August 2017 Beauty Favourites

Here we are again, talking about the monthly favourites!

Beauty

Dove Nourishing Secrets Relaxing Ritual Shower Gel (Dove is available from Amazon and Amazon UK)

This shower product  with lavender and rosemary extract is pretty similar to L’Occitane Aromachologie Relaxing Shower Gel but just for a fraction of the price. It smells incredible, and does not feel drying on the skin. Being a huge lavender fan, I had to have it. Especially I loved using it during my holidays this month, very relaxing.

Nivea Intimo Wash Lotion Fresh

Had to get this mini while I was away on a holiday, as well, as I forgot mine, and it just reminded me how important a right gel for the intimate hygiene is. This Nivea one is gentle yet effective.

Jo Malone Colognes (You can buy Jo Malone from Selfridges,  Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom.)

I am really into my Jo Malone colognes these days, especially the mini ones, they smell so incredible. I love mixing and matching them, too. I need new scents from the brand now.

Best Beauty Products for

July 2017 Beauty Favourites

It feels like I am starting every monthly favourites with this. But how is it August already, the 8th month of the year? Where did 2017 go?

All that aside, here is a list of the things I have been loving in July, and please keep in mind that I am still loving/using all the products from the previous months, but I just want to mention the ones I haven’t mentioned before.

Makeup

theBalm  Balm Desert  (buy from  ASOSFeel Unique and Sephora.).

I have only discovered this product in July but I think this will be a new long-time favourite. There is no need to say that the formula is amazing, it always is when it comes to this brand. But what is so special about it then? It is the  shade which is perfect. Bronzer/Blush is a great description, as it is not your typical bronzer, it has a reddish undertone to it. When I first saw Balm Desert, it made me think of Dallas by Benefit but they are not the same at all.  Anyway, this products is great for adding colour to your face, and for gently sculpting it, too.

From top to bottom: Dallas by Benefit, theBalm Balm Desert , theBalm Betty-Lou Manizer.
