Favourite Beauty Products of 2018

Since I already posted about my favourite makeup products of 2018, it is time for beauty!

Face

I am in my (early) 30s, and I have very dry skin which requires a lot of attention so I take my skincare seriously.  I am aware that all of the products I am going to mention are high end but every single one works incredible for my skin, and  none was a press sample, which proves that I do have a very high opinion about them and am ready to invest.

SARAH CHAPMAN Ultimate Cleanse (from Net A Porter, Cult Beauty and  Space NK).

I do not care for celebrities, unless it is Victoria Beckham, and very few other  ones in which case, I pay very close attention to her/their beauty recommendations. In fact,  someone I know who works for a big beauty brand told me that the Beckhams are among very few celebs who offer to pay for the samples they are sent. I’ve had very high expectations for this cleanser (and yes, partly because Mrs. B loves it), and it did not disappoint. Everything about the Ultimate Cleanse is pure luxury: from the packaging to the formula. Rich texture makes it easy to massage in, you get that at-home-spa feeling. And the result are fab! Clean and glowing skin without any tightness.  There is only one problem, now I want everything from the brand.

Anne Semonin Precious Serum  (from Harrods and  Net a Porter).

This is  very pricey product but after reading the most glorious reviews ( and waiting when there was a sale) I had to get it. And, seriously, this serum is

Dior Cruise 2013 Trio and Le Metier De Beaute Coromandel Nail Polish Collections

Most people usually wear dark nail polishes for Autumn/Winter but Dior suggest we brighten up our days with their new nail polish collection.

These three vibrant nail polishes were released to celebrate the launch of Dior’s  2013 Cruise collection.

  • Mango (438): A deliciously fruity and radiant yellow.
  • Pastèque (658): A rich and sensual pink with an aquatic sheen.
  • Lime (602): A sparkling acid green for colour block nails.

Each is £18. Which one do you like the best?

There is also a new nail polish collection from Le Metier De Beaute. The inspiration is “Ming [Dynasty] meets Modern”.

Here is the brand’s

Dior Les Vernis Violets Hypnotiques Nail Polish Collection

Just after the collections of grey and red nail polishes Dior releases the collection of purple nail polishes called  Les Vernis Violets Hypnotiques.

Of course the visuals and the story behind the launch is beautiful, as usual!

Christian Dior described purple as a demanding and sophisticated shade: the “king of colours.”

‘From the iconic lilac worn by the couturier’s muse Mitzah Bricard to the deepest aubergine shade adorning the legendary bottle of the Poison fragrance, purple comes in endless shapes and forms in the Dior world. Floral, it is a fashion echo of the mysterious beauty of the iris and clematis.’

So here is the celection of purple shades that Dior offers with this collection:

Its intense, shimmering version: Shadow (Dior Vernis No. 783)

The sensual,

Dior Gris City Nail Polish Collection

Now this is something gorgeous! The 3 new Dior nail polishes from the Gris City collection which  reinvents M. Dior’s beloved grey for the three capitals of fashion and luxury: Paris, London and New York.

As they are shown in the photo:

  • Bond Street, likened to a grey London fog infusion.
  • NY 57th representing raw, asphalt metal, a wakening shade.
  • Gris Montaigne being sleek and elegant.

Each is 10ml and £17, available at Selfridges.

Aren’t they gorgeous? I’d love to have them all! And which one do you like the best?
