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.

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.
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. AndRead More
Can you believe that today is the first of May? Last month of Spring, time flies…
New month = new monthly favouries. And I really love all the products below.
Makeup wise, I had pretty much the same favourites, as in March: , RBR eye shadows in Solstice Halcyon, Marc Jacobs’ Lola nail polish, NYX’s Taupe, Peter Thomas Roth CC Cream and Clarins’ gloss.
This is why this time I want to tell you about some other products:
This month I just have to mention two brushes. First of all, I’ve been using a “classic” flat foundation brush. I usually apply bases with my fingers or kabuki Sigma brushes but I’ve decided to start using those original foundation brushes again. So, I’ve been loving this one from Lancome. I still remember how much I wanted to buy that set, my friend bought it for me in the States. And I like the results and the finish it creates.
My other brush hero is Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Face Contour Brush 012. This is a brilliant tool for contouring, more details coming soon.

I have a new rule when it comes to beauty products, one out – one in (ok, maybe more than one in)! Meaning that I am allowed to buy new beauty products only after I finish some from those that I already have. This is why I get a bit excited when I see a new empty bottle in my bathroom.
I actually have some new items on the way to me, as I type. Can’t wait to try my them all!
I know that it’s not the end of Autumn yet, and there are still three weeks, but I have big doubts that I will finish anything else by the end of the month.
And by the way, here are Summer Empties. I’ve decided to do such features every season.
I really love bath oils, so, since I’ve used up two of my favourites Lavera Organic Wild Rose Bath Oil and Cowshed Lazy Cow Soothing Bath & Body Oil to the very last drop – I’ve already ordered some new ones, which are on their way to me.
Since I have very dry skin, I have to use body moisturizers, sometimes more than once a day, so I go through them quite quickly and this month I have finished the following products:
The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Body Butter. I think these butters don’t need any introduction and explanation, they are fantastic. This particular one was a present from the boyfriend which made even more special.
Aromatherapy Assosiates Enrich Body Serum. I never used a body serum before, and was excited to try such kind of product, as it makes sense to use serums/oils on the body before a cream just, as you would on the face. It works! Plus, asRead More
Did you know that The Body Shop celebrate 21st anniversary of their famous body butters this year?
I did not know about it when I’ve added “citrus body butter from The Body Shop” on my Christmas wish list. This was the only beauty related product I’ve asked for!
And I was very happy to get a Pink Grapefruit one…
These body butters are loved by some many people and I am not an exception. I find that they are rich and moisturizing (with pink grapefruit seeds oil, cocoa and shea butters) without being greasy or oily. The product absorbs quickly, so I don’t have to wait for ages until I can get dressed.
I find that body butter does leave my skin smooth and soft for hours and I don’t need to use a lot of product, which isRead More
