February 2016 Beauty Favourites

It’s time for February favourites, and considering that I was sick for 10+ days in the shortest month of the year, there isn’t that much to show. But here are the products that really stood out to me.

Soap & Glory Whipped Clean Shower Butter (review)

Moisturising shower product that smells of almonds, pistachios and vanilla. Oh, yes! It is an instant cheer-me-up and works great for shaving, too.

Kerastase Mousse Bouffante Luxurious Volumising Mousse

I’ve been on a hunt for a new product for voluminous hair for some time now, and this is the one I’ve picked up, as mentioned here. I was a bit worried, as I haven’t used a mousse in more than 10 years but this one really delivers. Mousse Bouffante creates beautiful big hair without being sticky or making the hair look or feel greasy.

Uriage Gyn-Phy Intimate Hygiene Protective Cleansing Gel

Probably the best product for intimate hygiene I’ve ever used, it is gentle but effective, smells really nice and is a great way to start and finish the day with. We talk so much about facial cleansers and shower gels but not enough about the intimate washes. And this is a great one, go get it.


Maybelline Master Smoky Shadow Pencil in Smoky Chocolate (Review and Swatches)

I have re-discovered my love for this affordable and easy to use makeup product recently. You just apply this creamy crayon, blend it out, and you get a long-lasting smoky eye, or a smudged eye liner. It takes just seconds and anyone can do it.

Another affordable product that I have been using daily (on the days I wasn’t sick at home, obviously) is this Inglot contouring powder. The formula is creamy and easy to blend, and the shade is perfect for creating that natural looking sculpted effect. I promise to write a detailed review soon.

Urban Decay Primer Potion

I don’t really use primers for my shadows but lately I’ve decided to give them a go. I have so many Urban Decay primer potions which came with all the palettes I used to buy from the brand, and I love using the mini sample, as I can carry it around with me. I like that it makes the colour of the shadows more intense, and makes them last longer (not that I had any creasing problems).

Clarins Natural Glow 5-Colour Eye Shadow Palette Review and Swatches 1

Clarins Natural Glow 5-Colour Eye Shadow Palette

Stay tuned for a detailed review of this Clarins palette this week, it is a real gem with five shades, one matte, one glitter and three metallics. Beautiful colours and formula make these a perfect choice for an everyday makeup. Speaking of Clarins, I am also loving this day cream but it is too early to include it in a favourites as I have been using it for about  a week only.
