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.

This set costs almost £45 but now you can get it for ONLY £30 at zuneta and his is a bargain! Make sure that you get it while it’s still in stock. I was a bit upset that I got mine just a week before such a huge discount but, anyway, lets get back to review.
This set includes:
- Line + Illuminate Pencil – Belize (Sooty black/violet eyeliner / smokey mauve grey illuminator), £17
- Dual Ended Anti-Bacterial Sharpener, £10
- Eye Tint – Pewter (Rich Gray Black), £17
- Ultimate Mascara – Black, £17
And this is how all the products look like
Now my thoughts about the products:
First of all I have to say that I haven’t tried the mascara yet because I have enough of opened mascaras right now and I don’t want to open this one until at least one of them is dried out. But I will be sure to write my thoughts about it later as I am curious myself.
