It’s time for June’s favourites, and somehow this time it is all about Clarins. I have bought quite a few products from the brand and have been sent some samples, and most products were incredible. After all it is one of my favourite brands for a reason. There are also two beauty tools, self tanning drops and bath salts.
Here we go.
Let’s start with makeup, as there are only two products that really stood out to me. Technically three, but two are the same product just different shades. Clarins Blush & Bronzing Compact (review and swatches) my love for this bronzer is still going strong. Now that I have a tan it looks amazing on, warms up the complexion and adds some definition.
As for the Clarins Waterproof Eyeshadow Shimmering Cream Colour (review and swatches) they are phenomenal, as I’ve already said. Extremely long-lasting and incredibly beautiful on the eyes. Just make sure you don’t apply too much, as they can look a bit dry. I’ve been wearing 03 Silver Taupe at the end of May and beginning of June when I still had a very pale complexion but now 04 Copper Brown is my favourite. It looks perfect now, am I a bronze goddess already?
June was a very stressful month with some serious deadlines so I really enjoyed a bath whenever I had time for one. I’ve been obsessed with lavender bath salts, not any particular brand. I have been just buying whichever I could, pictured below are some random ones I’ve bough in one of those “healthy lifestyle” stores.
I have been also obsessed with the coffee scrubs (as seen here). There are so many good options to choose from, I prefer oil based ones.
After a good scrubbing and a bath – it was all about fake tanning. I have been loving Clarins Radiance Plus Golden Glow Booster (review) as you can mix it with any body cream or lotion, the results are really natural and even. And is there a better way to make your
fake tan look beautiful other than adding some shimmering body oil? Yes, Clarins (review) again, you’ve been warned. You can actually read my “Summer Ready Body” feature here.
Hair Products, Face Products and Beauty Tools
And the last Clarins products I want to talk about are their new Boosters (review), I have been enjoying adding several drops of the Energy one to make my skin glow and Repair when I have been away for several days at the seaside.
I’ve had a very dramatic hair style change, I even had a bit of my hair shaved off. I’ve wanted to do it for ages and finally did! Color Wow Pop & Lock Crystallite Shellac (review) is one of the coolest hair styling product that I own, and it has been a great helper in adding some shine and gloss to my hair, as if I’ve just left a hair salon.
As for the beauty tools, I have been loving two this month. Finally bought new pads for my shu uemura curlers (review) (I’ve bought the shiseido ones), and have been using them non stop ever since.
FOREO Luna Play in Petal Pink (as seen here) is an awesome little gadget that leaves the skin incredibly smooth and soft; I promise to write a detailed review on all the FOREO products I have in the future.
And what have you been loving this month?
