Tag: shower oil
My already very dry skin feels even more dry and tight after winter periods. This is why I love using oil infused beauty ranges in the shower to prevent it from drying out even more. Followed by moisturising and nourishing creams, of course.
Here are three products that I have been loving:
Before I start, I have to say that all three products have some things in common: subtle oriental’y scent which is really lovely and affordable price tag.
Garnier Oil Beauty Oil-Infused Nourishing Scrub (Review)
This scrub buffs away dead skin cells and at the same time nourishes the skin. I actually have all three products from this Garnier range (scrub, cream and body oil) and love them, and even converted some of my friends. Effective and not expensive.
Yves Rocher Oriental Shower Oil Review (review)
This gel turns into
Makeup wise, it was pretty much all the same in February, and you can read about all the products here. There is also something very different from me this month – I’ve been loving nude lipsticks (which is a complete shock for me), and I will write a feature about it soon.
There are only two other makeup products that I want to mention:
Illamasqua’s Nail Varnish in Nomad. I wore in for the whole last week of the month, and this gorgeous jade set me in the mood for Spring. Not too pastel but not too bright, it is just perfect.
Max Factor’s Creme Puff Blush in 25 Alluring Rose. This is a shade created for medium and dark skin tones, so on me it looks like a bronzer. It blends out beautifully and gives a gorgeous glow. Look out for the feature about these new blushes this week.
As for the beauty products – I was very stressed and completely out of time in February, so shower time was the ultimate luxury and “me” time when I could just think and reflect on what was going on. I have tonnes of shower products in my tiny bathroom, and have been loving all of them, but two
Oils are a necessity for me, beauty-wise, especially in AW period. My skin is very dry, and during the cold months it is flaky and sore. And I do love my daily hot shower which dries out the skin even more. But I just can’t help it. The relaxing and anti-stress effect [of a hot shower] is very important for me.
This is why I’ve decided to get some shower oils. I have started with Yves Rocher Oriental Shower Oil .
And it is really lovely indeed. It has a subtle oriental scent, as the name suggests. The way it looks and smells – it reminds me of honey. My favourite way of using it is to apply to the skin directly. It turns into milk when contacted with water, and leaves the skin smelling divine, and feeling softer and more moisturized than after a regular gel. I still
Last week I have published a sweet mini wish list, and I have actually already bought several products during the weekend.
I really wanted a shower oil because regular showers gels just dry our my skin in this cold weather. I’ve bought Yves Rocher Oriantal Shower Oil, and so far I really like the delicate but nice scent and that my skin is definitely not so dry afterwards. By the way, I was highly recommended Ella Bache shower oil. I’ve never heard of the brand, to tell the truth, but I will find it on-line.
I have also bought Caudalie Overnight Recovery Oil for dry and
Here is the list of the beauty products that I plan to buy in February, and it is only beauty, but I will share my makeup wish list, too.
Rituals Fortune Oil Caring Shower Oil (here for £8.50)
My skin is very dry and sore in this cold weather. And I do like a shower oil (this L’Occitane one is amazing), so I thought I’d give this one a try. Plus, it is very affordable, and I like Rituals in general, so have high hopes for this product.
Ole Henriksen pure truth melting cleanser (here for £24)
I wrote about this cleanser months ago. And now, that I have finished some of mine, I can go ahead and buy myself one. “Ultra hydrating 3 in 1 cleanser that transforms from a gel to a luxurious oil to a hydrating milk. Rich in Vitamin C, Rose Hip, and
