It’s time for monthly favourites! And this time I’ve decided to mention only those products that I have been really loving. Somehow I have re-discovered 17 Sheer Moisture Foundation which is now discontinued but which has been my base of choice lately, as it gives that beautiful light and glowing finish.
The other product which is not shown is Garnier HandRepair Intensive Restoring Hand Cream because I have used it all up. And, just like the body cream, this one is brilliant.Works wonders on my very dry hands and feet, it improved the condition [of my skin] dramatically, moisturized and nourished.
Clarins Joli Rouge Lipstick in 738 Royal Plum (review and lip swatches)
I have an old version of the lipstick but I will have a few samples of the new Joli Rouge to review and compare them for you. This is an amazing product! The sheer formula can be built up, or worn as a barely-there stain. And this the most beautiful dark plum, looks gorgeous on the lips, have been wearing it non-stop.
The only other makeup product is the new Rouge Bunny Rouge Naked Disguise Glide Concealer. And this, without a doubt, is now one of my favourite concealers ever. The texture is light but at the same time it transforms the under eye area by brightening and covering the dark circles. It doesn’t look or feel heavy and doesn’t set into the fine lines. I like the brand’s description “your skin but better”, and I agree.
REN Evercalm Gentle Cleansing Milk
I can’t believe that I still haven’t written a review about this cleanser. It is an amazing one for sensitive and dry skin. As the name suggests, it is really mild and gentle but it does leave the face clean and smooth. It is a must have in my skincare stash, and I promise a more in-depth review soon.
Vichy Aqualia Thermal cream for dry and very dry skin
This is my latest skincare purchase, as I’ve bought this cream only this month. I’ve read a lot of raves about this range so was curious to try it myself. As other people said, it gives an instant relief for that dry/tight/dehydrated skin. Can this be a budget version of HydraQuench? We will see, but so far I am impressed.
Body and Hair Care
Kerastase Specifique Bain Stimuliste GL Energizing Shampoo for Thinning Hair
Being a huge Kerastase fan, I was curious to try Specifique shampoo for some time, and finally bought it several weeks ago. I can’t say if it has any benefits with hair loss at this point yet but it does make the hair look shiny and glossy. But I will keep you updated..
Aromatherapy Associates Renewing Rose Body Velvet Cream (review here)
The weather is getting colder so it is time to get back to thick and luxurious body creams. And you just can’t got wrong with something that has a “rose velvet” in the name. This the ultimate treat for the body, smells divine and makes the skin silky and soft.
You may also wonder why there are so many perfume samples on the photo? The thing is that lately I have been trying to discover more scents and educate myself on the matter. I am enjoying the Perfumes A to Z Guide by Luca Turin and Tania Sanchez book. And I am also reading the Front Roe, finally.
Speaking of books, I will do a post on them this month, as quite a few asked. I remember…
