August 2017 Beauty Favourites

Here we are again, talking about the monthly favourites!

Dove Nourishing Secrets Relaxing Ritual Shower Gel (Dove is available from Amazon and Amazon UK)

This shower product  with lavender and rosemary extract is pretty similar to L’Occitane Aromachologie Relaxing Shower Gel but just for a fraction of the price. It smells incredible, and does not feel drying on the skin. Being a huge lavender fan, I had to have it. Especially I loved using it during my holidays this month, very relaxing.

Nivea Intimo Wash Lotion Fresh

Had to get this mini while I was away on a holiday, as well, as I forgot mine, and it just reminded me how important a right gel for the intimate hygiene is. This Nivea one is gentle yet effective.

Jo Malone Colognes (You can buy Jo Malone from Selfridges,  Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom.)

I am really into my Jo Malone colognes these days, especially the mini ones, they smell so incredible. I love mixing and matching them, too. I need new scents from the brand now.

Jo Malone The Herb Garden Cologne Collection for Spring 2016

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I love my Jo Malone Red Roses and wear it all the time lately, as  well, as my other Jo Malone colognes. I am actually still shocked that Vanilla & Anise was discontinued, and I found out only recently…

Oh well, but the brand just brought out a collection of five new colognes, The Herb Garden, so maybe you and I can find a new love among these five scents. All of them were created by  Anne Flipo.

Jo Malone Collection for Christmas 2014

I am still in love with the Jo Malone’s mini cologne set I’ve got myself as a Christmas present several years ago, which is why I always recommend getting them, as a present for yourself or a special friend.

This year the brand actually brought out two gorgeous looking collections, one with colognes, and the other one with colognes intense. It is as good as it gets, really.

Jo Malone Blackberry & Bay Cologne

The newest Jo Malone cologne Blackberry and Bay was inspired by the childhood memories of blackberry picking, stained lips, sticky palms…

It is described as a burst of deep, tart blackberry juice and sparkling grapefruit, blending with the freshness of just-gathered bay, softened by  with delicate flowers , resting on  a brambly base of vetiver and cedarwood.

I have really enjoyed using this cologne in July and August as it is fresh, sparkling and not very complicated which makes it a perfect choice for warmer weather.  It is quite simple and not overwhelming which is exactly the thing that makes me love Jo Malone fragrances.

I find it appropriate for day and
