Shower Oil: A Winter Must Have?

I have very dry skin so I have to give it extra love in winter.  Here are some tips from my dermatologist on how to take care of winter skin which really helped me.

Although it was a while ago, I am still using the Weleda soaps, after the calendula,  I had a rose one and am using the  lavender one now.

But what about the shower oils? We all know the cult favourite  L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil (review) and I also wrote about the Yves Rocher Oriental Shower Oil  (review) which I love.

However, there are so many new options on the market these days.  Here are just  two of them, which I’ve picked up a while ago.

SS17 Blushes: Gucci, byTerry, ArtDeco and Benefit

Here is a preview of some really cool new blushers which were launched for SS17, and I have  chosen quite a good selection: middle-priced cushion blushes, luxury Gucci blush with a ladybug, and two kinds of palettes.

I am personally very interested in ArtDeco Cushion Blusher, €19.95 from Douglas, and will definitely be checking out the bronzy shade in person. These are promised to have a silky smooth texture and a soft shimmering effect. Without parabens, perfume and talc. The shades are: 2 – paradise parrot, 4 – tropican tucan  (not shown) and 6 – bamboo bronze.

February 2017 Beauty Favourites

Two months of 2017 are down, wow, how did it happen? But this means that it is time for monthly favourites.

To be honest, I loved/used pretty much the same products as in January, and there are very few additions.

Also, this month most of the the products I have been loving are very cheap affordable. Let’s take a look.

I have started using my lip liners more often – especially  the  ArtDeco Soft Lip Liner Waterproof in 80  (review and swatches) and Rimmel Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Lipner in East End Snob  (review and swatches).  I actually want to get the Rimmel one in  red now, too.   I don’t really overdraw my lips like there is no tomorrow, I mainly use them to create the shape I want, and make the lipstick look more defined. But if you want to create fuller lips – this video from Lisa Eldridge is pretty awesome.

The other cheap and cheerful product I loved is  the Makeup Revolution Natural Nudes Eyeshadow Redemption Palette Iconic 3  (you can get it from Amazon UK or Amazon) which, according to all the reviews is a dupe for Urban Decay’s Naked 3. I have so many Urban Decay palettes which I have been buying over the years, but for some reason I barely ever use them, however I have been reaching for this Revolution one all the time. There are several shades I really love, and the quality is very decent, in my opinion. This palette was a present from a friend.

It’s not a secret that my favourite affordable skincare brand is

ArtDeco Ylang Ylang and Patchouli Precious Dry Body Oil Review

I love me a good body oil, and I have to have at least one in my rotation! And here is the one I have been enjoying in August and September. Meet ArtDecoYlang Ylang and Patchouli Precious Dry Body Oil which is from the Senses Asian Spa range.

ArtDecoYlang Ylang and Patchouli Precious Dry Body Oil reviewI am sorry for the state of the bottle, I forgot to take the photos when I’ve just bought the product but at least you can definitely tell that I love it.

So why do I love it? It has a subtle oriental scent to it, and I am not gonna lie, this is one of the most important things when it comes to body care for me. It has to smell nice. But at the same time, it is subtle

New Beauty Purchases

New week and month is a perfect time to share the new beauty purchases, isn’t it?

I have actually posted all of them over at my Instagram but if you are not following me there, here is a round-up.

New Beauty Purchases artdeco and yves rocher

First of all, I have finished 3 body products so it was time go get some new ones, and this time I’ve decided to pick up yet another body oil – ArtDecoYlang Ylang and Patchouli Precious Dry Body Oil which was already included in my July beauty favourites.

I have also noticed that Yves Rocher updated their body line by changing the scent a bit, and since I love their body lotions and creams (especially this one) I have decided to get try the Mango Coriander, and it smells great.

New Beauty Purchases la roche posay sunscreen

I needed a new facial sunscreen, and got La Roche Posay Anthelios XL Ultra Light Fluid SPF 50. On the photo is actually my friend’s tube but I loved it so much that I’ve got myself one, as well. It feels incredibly light and non greasy on the face, and
