Christmas 2017 Candle Sets: Jo Malone, Malin+Goetz and Diptyque

AW17 Beauty Must Haves: Ellis Faas, BECCA and Victoria Beckham for Estee Lauder

To be honest, with so many new makeup releases, sometime it is hard to get excited about a new product but everything I have included in this post has that wow-effect. Let’s take a look!

Ellis Faas is one of the coolest brands out there,  the formulas of their products are phenomenal, so are the textures and the colours. This is why I am excited to share that the brand just released three new shades of their incredible Lights. I have actually reviewed the Lights (here)…

The new colours are: E306 in Beige, E307 in Chocolate Brown and
E308 in Dark Metal.

You can buy Ellis Faas from Selfridges and Net-a-Porter.

BECCA brought out a palette with their 5 best-selling shades of

Hand Cream Love: J.R. Watkins and Brooks & Waters

I am the biggest hand cream fan ever,  I have mentioned so many hand creams on the website already, and posted quite a few over at my Instagram, too.

So today I want to show you my two newest loves, both were gifts from my friends which is very sweet of them. One was brought to me from Canada, and the other one from the USA.

J.R. Watkins Shea Butter Hand Cream ( get  it from Amazon and Amazon UK)

I used this one mostly during the winter, as it is very nourishing and quite thick formula-wise (check out all the butters and oils in the ingredients list).   I honestly think this is one of the

August 2017 Beauty Favourites

Here we are again, talking about the monthly favourites!

Dove Nourishing Secrets Relaxing Ritual Shower Gel (Dove is available from Amazon and Amazon UK)

This shower product  with lavender and rosemary extract is pretty similar to L’Occitane Aromachologie Relaxing Shower Gel but just for a fraction of the price. It smells incredible, and does not feel drying on the skin. Being a huge lavender fan, I had to have it. Especially I loved using it during my holidays this month, very relaxing.

Nivea Intimo Wash Lotion Fresh

Had to get this mini while I was away on a holiday, as well, as I forgot mine, and it just reminded me how important a right gel for the intimate hygiene is. This Nivea one is gentle yet effective.

Jo Malone Colognes (You can buy Jo Malone from Selfridges,  Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom.)

I am really into my Jo Malone colognes these days, especially the mini ones, they smell so incredible. I love mixing and matching them, too. I need new scents from the brand now.
