Favourite Beauty Products of 2010: Skincare

I’ve already written about my favourite makeup products and even nail polishes of 2010 but what about skincare you may ask? The brand of the year for me was definitely Elemis.  All the products that I’ve tried this year were nice and some were just amazing.

I ADORE the Exotic line for the body. The Salt Glow, Frangipani melt and the shower cream are just amazing = perfection. The body lotion (I have a travel size) is nice but it’s not my favourite.  The Milk Bath is divine, you can read about it here.

I dream about the perfume which smells like the moisture melt and I  was really hoping that the Exotic perfumes smell like it but unfortunately (for me) they don’t. But my Mama is crazy about this scent.

I’ve been also loving Elemis face care products. I already

Yves Rocher Blackberry Silky Lotion Review

Regular readers may know that I am the biggest fan of blackberry scented beauty products. I adore Blackberry (Mure Sauvage) range from Yves Rocher ever since one of my friends got me the spray about 8 years ago. I  also love Jo Malone’s Blackberry and Bay cologne, it is truly one of my favourites.

This is why I’ve decided to get myself a blackberry scented body lotion from Yves Rocher last week.

Yves Rocher Silky Lotion with Blackberry review

Body creams, lotions, butters  and oils are my thing, I have tonnes of them in my bathroom. But this is the one I have been using everyday ever since I’ve bought it. And let me tell you why.

It has a light texture which is exactly what you want during the summer heat. It melts into the skin, leaving it feeling moisturized (it contains sweet almond oil and shea butter) and

ArtDeco Ylang Ylang and Patchouli Precious Dry Body Oil Review

I love me a good body oil, and I have to have at least one in my rotation! And here is the one I have been enjoying in August and September. Meet ArtDecoYlang Ylang and Patchouli Precious Dry Body Oil which is from the Senses Asian Spa range.

ArtDecoYlang Ylang and Patchouli Precious Dry Body Oil reviewI am sorry for the state of the bottle, I forgot to take the photos when I’ve just bought the product but at least you can definitely tell that I love it.

So why do I love it? It has a subtle oriental scent to it, and I am not gonna lie, this is one of the most important things when it comes to body care for me. It has to smell nice. But at the same time, it is subtle

Korres Jasmine Body Butter Review

Today I’d love to tell you about a Korres product that I’ve been loving for the last month and it’s their jasmine Body Butter. I’ve wanted it ever since I got a sample of it with my zuneta order. So I was very happy to get it finally. But I got mine in 50ml because I wanted it to be small so that I can always have it in my handbag.

I’ve been using this mostly for hands and sometimes body. I have to say that if you love jasmine this is a must-have for you! It is also mousturizing and nourishing enough for my dry hands.

Here is what Korres promises and I agree with all statements:

  • Jasmine Body Butter is enriched with Shea Butter to soften, moisturize & restructure the skin.
  • A proprietary blend of Sunflower, Almond & Avocado Oils restores skin’s elasticity & smoothness.
  • Quince extract acts as a soothing agent to heal and nourish stressed skin.

And what is your favourite Korres body butter?
