This month it was all about beautiful  skin for me. The mix of Elemis Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm (review) and Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturizer  (review and swatches) was my dream combo. It made the skin smooth, radiant and youthful. And I mean it. I guess the fact that recently several (!) people  thought that I am 19-20 speaks for itself. Plus you could definitely see the “real skin” underneath, no cakey thick masks which are even worse than bad skin tone itself, in my opinion.

Since I wanted to keep things on the light-to-medium side -YSL Touche Eclat  (review and swatches) was my best friend, as well.  For me it is a perfect light reflecting product for under the eye area, you get great, long-lasting results, also Touche Eclat doesn’t enhance the under eye lines.

August was definitely the month of

July 2014 Beauty Favourites

This month there were quite a few  beauty products that I really loved. Which ones?July 2014 Beauty Favourites Makeup4all   Skincare

Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm Review (review)

It is such an ah-mazing cleanser, feels creamy and lush on the skin, smells really nice, and leaves the skin soft and smooth. It can be also used as a face mask. What else could you ask for?

Elemis Exotic Cream Moisturuzing  Mask

This is one of my favourite face masks ever, so I am not sure why I still did not write a proper review about it, will do soon. As the name suggests, it moisturises and soothes the skin. Whenever I am stressed out, don’t get enough of sleep and work-work-work, this is the mask that helps my skin to look and feel decent.

You can buy Elemis from Feel Unique.

Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation Creme (review)

I wrote a detailed review about this cream last week actually, so you can take a look. But in a nutshell: it is a lightweight but hydrating cream that also helps with discolouration. It retails for $40 from Sephora and £47 from Feel Unique.

My Top 5 Hand Creams

Regular readers will probably know that  a good hand cream is a must have for me. If I could have only one beauty product with  me in my bag, that’d be it (and a lip balm, if I can have two).

I have very dry skin, especially on the hands, and I love to re-apply the cream whenever I need to do it or feel like doing it.

This is why I’ve decided to share my personal top 5 hand creams. Unfortunately, most of them are not cheap but I,  personally, am ready to pay for the quality.

My-Top-5-Hand-Creams-Elemis-Clarins-Yes-Nurse-LOccitane-Aromatherapy-Associates-Makeup4allElemis Pro-Radiance Hand Cream (review)

It is probably my favourite hand cream ever, it instantly makes the skin feel moisturized and smooth, such a relief, especially in the cold(er) months. Plus I could totally tell that my nails were in much better condition when I was using it.

The price is £24 from Feel Unique

It’s been quite some time since I did the “empties” post last time. Since this  weekend I was cleaning my bathroom, and found several empty bottles, I though I’d share with you. I usually throw those away immediately, but here are some that I’ve kept for the post :)

So, here we go…

A lot of Clarins, nothing new here. Clarins Extra-Comfort Toning Lotion for Dry and Sensitive Skin and Clarins Water Comfort One-Step Cleanser with Peach Essential Water are simply brilliant. Both products!  One of the best toner, and  a great morning cleanser when you don’t have time or don’t want to spend a lot of time massaging in your cleansing balm. I will definitely re-purchase both in the future.

The Double Serum  doesn’t even need an introduction, it was probably the most talked about, multi-award winning,  serum in the last two years.  And rightly so, it is very good.

The best on-line shop to buy Clarins from is Escentuals.

May 2014 Beauty Favourites

It’s time  for May  beauty favourites! It was very hard to narrow things down but I’ve managed to, almost.

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.
