The first month of 2016 is already behind us. How does it feel? Was it a good one? Are you ready for the rest of 2016? Do you stick to your resolutions? 😉
It was a pretty good month beauty-wise for me, and here are the products I’ve been loving:
Nivea Nourishing Body Lotion For Very Dry Skin and a shower cream from this line. My Dad (!) actually got these two for me for Christmas, and I am really touched that he actually got the right products for my skin type. I usually take them with me when I go swimming but use them on a daily basis, too. I love how soft and smooth my skin feels afterwards, and how nice it smells. Considering how quickly I go through body creams and lotions it is nice to have something budget-friendly, as well.
Jo Malone Red Roses Cologne
I honestly don’t understand how could I miss the fact that Jo Malone discontinued Vanilla & Anise (and WHY would they do it?) so I am left with a half bottle only. At least I can still get this scent. Red Roses is definitely not for everyone, some of my friends laugh that I smell like a rose jam whenever I use it, and it may be a bit weird to smell like this when you wear a lot of black, leather, and red… but hey, life is supposed to be fun. I also have a candle which I adore as much as the cologne.
CND Solar Oil
I was getting gel manicure for about 6 months non-stop but once I was too busy to go to my manicurist who is absolutely amazing but works far away from my home (and work, too), and had to rush to the nearest salon as my nails were looking disgusting at that point. I can’t believe how
I have bought two Clarins sets recently, one with lip glosses and balms and the other one with skin care. But there is one more set that I would love to get – Clarins Gorgeous Getaways Face and Body Essentials Collection.
I’ve been wanting to try their Beauty Flash Balm for a long time already. It retails for £21.50. But here you can get Beauty Flash Balm, five more products and a makeup bag for £44 only. And you can never have too many foot, hands or body creams. Plus this makeup bag would be a great one for travelling I assume.
Here is what you get:
- Beauty Flash Balm (50ml)
- Hand and Nail Treatment Cream (100ml)
- One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser (75ml)
- Moisture-Rich Body Lotion (100ml)
- Foot Beauty Treatment Cream (30ml)
- HydraQuench Cream (15ml)
What is not to like here?
We all love personalised approach when it comes to everything including beauty, don’t we? This is why it is awesome to see brands having that approach. I am personally a fan of Concoction hair care brand, and now it is awesome to see Clarins and their Boosters.
What are these?
Clarins Boosters are basically high-concentrated formulas which are created for a certain concern. You simply add several drops to the cream of your choice. There are three options to choose from:
- Tones are re-energises the skin
- Minimises signs of fatigue
- Revives radiance
- Reduces feelings of discomfort
- Optimises skin strength
- Minimises the appearance of redness
I have gathered some empties to show you :)! I am kind of excited as now I can get the replacement. Well, actually, I have already got some new products, instead of these.
So here we go:
Elemis Pro-Collagen Advanced Eye Treatment
This is definitely one of the most effective eye treatments I have ever used, absolutely loved it. Here is a full review.
Elemis Pro-Intense Eye and Lip Contour Cream
This was also a nice product but I have used it for the eyes mostly, and loved the eye treatment (the one above) better. Plus I think it’d be more suitable for more mature ladies.
Clarins Toning Lotion with Camomile for Dry and Normal Skin
I have a thing for Clarins Toners and
It’s time for March beauty favourites, so here are the products that really stood out for me.
Clarins Gloss Prodige in 09 Water Lily (review and lip swatches)
Back in the days I was singing praises to Gloss Prodige, and recently I’ve re-discovered my love for it. It has a nice scent, brilliant moisturising formula and the most beautiful nudish pink shade. This is probably my favourite lip gloss that I own.
Rouge Bunny Rouge Eye Shadow Palette Raw Garden in Antigo (review and swatches)
I have been using this palette almost every day, and recently wrote a detailed review about it, you get four eye shadows with a unique sateen matt light texture which feels weightless on but still has a nice pigmentation. The
