Back in March I was away to a spa trip for my Birthday with one of my best girlfriends. Of course, I had to check her favourite beauty products as she has a very good taste in everything. And it was all mostly Weleda. I haven’t tried that many products (here is a review of the birch body scrub), so I had to go Weleda shopping when I came home.
And I’ve got myself their Citrus Creamy Body Wash.
And it is pretty nice, I have two main requirements for a shower gel – for it to smell nice, and not to be drying, and it ticks both boxes.
With my very dry skin, I don’t really believe in moisturizing shower products but this out isn’t drying (no SLS in the ingredients list), as I already said, so that is good. I use a cream/butter/oil/lotion afterwards anyway.

Don’t you just love the idea of having most of the products you need to create a look with in just one palette? How convenient that is. Luckily, Stila and Charlotte Tilbury got us covered, both brands released those gems.
Stila brought out four Perfect Me, Perfect Hue Eye & Cheek Palettes with 5 eye shadows and 2 blushes each. They are created for different skin tones, as the name suggests.
- Eye Shades: Alluring (soft pale pink), Breathtaking (soft neutral white), Passionate (champagne pearl), Dynamic (soft taupe), Glamorous (warm chocolate brown)
- Blush Shades: Romantic (soft pale pink), Playful (soft rose pink)
- Eye Shades: Artistic (neural beige), Dazzling (vanilla), Ambitious (midtone brown with gold pearl), Spontaneous (brown with berry undertones), Mischievous (black brown)
- Blush Shades: Charming (true cool pink), Angelic (neutral warm rose)
I was browsing Makeup4all the other day, and stumbled across this post from 2010. The point was to choose only three products I could use for my makeup. I was actually surprised by my choices, so thought I would do the same thing six years later.
So here is what I would go for and why:
I just have to have some kind of definition for my eyes, black liquid eye liner or a brown eye pencil, or even some eye shadows. But if I could use only one product- that would be this. These days I am loving ArtDeco, but there are lots of other nice ones I like.
