Favourites Beauty Products of 2017

It is better late than never, right? So here is finally a feature on my favourite beauty products of 2017.

Here is actually a look back on my 2015 favourites and 2016 Makeup Favourites. I am still obsessed with those products, by the way. And a link to my 2017 monthly beauty favourites. While in 2015 and 2016 I wrote about makeup only, this time it will be about beauty in general. I have chosen 17 products.  Some of the products I loved the most were LE (  Clarins shadows, bronzers for e.g) so here are only those that are still available.

Makeup

  1. Rouge Bunny Rouge SERENE LIGHT Skin Perfector 

This is probably the product of 2017, and it was also in my 2016 favourites. I have been promising to write a detailed feature about it for  a while now, and I will definitely do it in the near future. Basically this base gives you the most incredible glow, you get that polished and well-rested effect, dry skin’s best friend. It does not give that much coverage, as it is a primer, but I wear it without any foundation on top.  Stay tuned for the photos.

2. theBalm  Balm Desert  (buy from  ASOSFeel Unique and Sephora.)

I’ve hit the pan on this product, and will use it all up. I love how it is called  bronzer/blush, and it is exactly that, it has a nice balance of warmth and reddish undertones. Perfect for adding colour and definition to your face. I love the texture, the formula an the pigmentation. The staying power is also impressive. See the swatch in the middle.

3. Clarins Graphik Ink Liner (from Selfridges,HarrodsEscentual.com,  Nordstorm,  Sephora, Bergdorf Goodman)

I am very picky  when it come to eye liners, it has to be a very specific tip and formula for me to like it. And this Clarins one is absolutely incredible. The best purchase. The tip is

November 2016 Beauty Favourites

First of all, how is it December already? I mean how is it the last month of 2016?! Are you excited for 2017? I know I am!

When I have gathered the beauty favourites to take a photo, I have realised that most of them are the same products I’ve featured in October so here are only the ones which I haven’t.

Before we start, I would like to mention some other things  I really loved in November which are beauty related, too.

Book – Branded Beauty by Mark Tungate (from Amazon and Amazon UK). I think everyone who is interested in beauty and brands should read it, the book is packed with interesting facts and quotes.  I personally really enjoyed the history of so many companies and the explanation about the marketing tips and tricks.

Mr. Selfridge TV Series.  (Amazon and Amazon UK). I’ve had this on my to-watch list for a long time already but gave it a go only last weekend, and it is great. I love how it shows the pre -WWI history of the legendary Selfridges.  Imagine that it was unthinkable to sell beauty products over the counter back in the days for obvious reasons, it is very well shown in Season 1 Episode 3.

Sparkles. I have to admit, I just have to have anything sparkling these days to brighten up the grey and dark November days, which feel like forever nights actually.

I also simply  have to include

New Beauty Purchases

New week and month is a perfect time to share the new beauty purchases, isn’t it?

I have actually posted all of them over at my Instagram but if you are not following me there, here is a round-up.

New Beauty Purchases artdeco and yves rocher

First of all, I have finished 3 body products so it was time go get some new ones, and this time I’ve decided to pick up yet another body oil – ArtDecoYlang Ylang and Patchouli Precious Dry Body Oil which was already included in my July beauty favourites.

I have also noticed that Yves Rocher updated their body line by changing the scent a bit, and since I love their body lotions and creams (especially this one) I have decided to get try the Mango Coriander, and it smells great.

New Beauty Purchases la roche posay sunscreen

I needed a new facial sunscreen, and got La Roche Posay Anthelios XL Ultra Light Fluid SPF 50. On the photo is actually my friend’s tube but I loved it so much that I’ve got myself one, as well. It feels incredibly light and non greasy on the face, and

September 2015 Beauty Favourites

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

Aromatherapy Associates Renewing Rose Body Velvet Cream Review

Did you know that the best aromatherapy brand –  Aromatherapy Associates celebrates their 30th anniversary this year. They brought out a limited edition Rose Body Velvet just for the occasion.

It has a pink and gold design and comes in a minimalistic white packaging.

Aromatherapy Associates Renewing Rose Body Velvet Cream Review (1)

As for the cream itself, as the name suggests, it is like a velvet that melts into the skin, and leaves it nourished and moisturised. A great one even if you have very dry skin like myself. And it works wonders after the cold months when the skin needs some extra care and love.

Being AA, you can be sure that it contains the highest quality essential oils that not only make the skin softer and smoother but  also smell amazing. And
