While I am still in the process of writing about my 2018 beauty favourites (better late than never?), I thought I’d share about my recent discoveries for the very dry skin in the winter time. These both are literally life/skin saviours for me!
Long time readers know that I have extremely dry skin but somehow I’ve never shared about the actual name of my condition. I have a genetic skin disorder – ichthyosis. And often winter makes it unbearable.
But here are the products my dermatologist recommended that make a huge difference:
The Soap. She warned me that it has a slightly unpleasant scent to some but I did not have any issues, and it’s totally fine for me. I really love the
I’ve used up Darphin Aromatic Cleansing Balm till the very last drop, so it is about time I write about it.
This cleanser is a cult product in the industry, and rightly so. First of all, as the name suggests, it smells absolutely incredible, there is something soothing and relaxing about using it at the end of the day, it is like a well deserved “me time”. The scent is divine thanks to Marula Oil, Sage, Ylang Ylang and Rosewood Essential Oils. It is truly therapeutic, especially with our hectic schedules.
I also love the cleansing properties and how soft it makes my skin feel. While I never remove my eye makeup with this type of cleansers, I find that it does the job of
This Spring Clarins are bringing out new shades of the eye shadows and the cult lip balms. But there is also a new item – a SOS Base. And knowing how well Clarins do a hybrid of makeup and skincare I have high expectations.
4-Colour Eye Palette (£34/$43) in 07 Lovely Pink
I am a huge fan of these palettes, and even included Oud in my yearly favouites. Here is my review. Now I actually have one more shade – 02 Rosewood.
Instant Light Natural Lip Balm Perfector, £18.50/ (my review of the other shades)
in 08 plum and 07 hot pink
SOS Primer £26.50/$39
Boosts radiance, brightens the face. The shades are: 00 universal light, 01 rose, 02 peach, 03 coral, 04 green and 05 lavender and each shade is targeted to solve a particular issue.

I haven’t posted a “New Purchases” feature in ages because I haven’t really been buying beauty products lately, but here is finally a round-up of my newest picks (which I have already posted at my Instagram).
Clarins Gentle Foaming cleanser for dry or sensitive skin
I have posted about Clarins cleansers and toners, and about to publish the second part. This is actually the only Clarins cleanser (suitable for my skin type) that I haven’t tried yet, so it was about time. So far, I enjoy using it so expect a feature.
Clarins Day Screen Multi-Protection SPF 50
This is a must have product in my daily skincare routine, in fact, I have
I don’t have that many favourites this month but I really love each and every one a lot.
I am huge fan of Givenchy Noir Couture Mascara, and I really like this one, too. This ball-shaped mascara has been around for a while but I have tried it only this year and only because I’ve bought it by accident (did not return it because the lady at Givenchy told me it is her favourite). And I am happy I’ve kept it, as it is great. It takes time to get used to this shape but once you do – you can get incredible results: think, long and black lashes. I also like the fact that this mascara stays on without smudging all day. The only thing I’d say is that this is not a I-am-in-a-rush product, it does take some time to build up the effect but it is worth it, in my opinion.
