Today I want to tell you about the face cream that I have almost used up, and that I did not like at first, but ended up loving. And it’s all about the Jo Malone Vitamin E Moisturising Day Crème SPF15.
I am a huge fan of a lot of Jo Malone’s colognes, but this is the first skin care product that I’ve tried from them.
I actually read some reviews about it on the website, and was surprised to see how mixed they are, some people hate this product, others adore. As I have already told you, I did not like it at first myself, but decided to give it another try this AW season, and my very dry skin loved it.
This was my day cream of choice almost every day for the last several months. Why?
I find that it works great for my [dry] skin, it helps with the dry patches and tight feeling that I may have. Plus it does make the skin smoother, I find. And I personally like using it before applying the base.
Also, since you only need a tiny amount of product, it will last you for months.
Jo Malone promise that
For me personally it’s always a big deal when Jo Malone release their new autumnal scent. I am actually absolutely in love with Blackberry and Bay and I’ve bought my Mum Peony and Blush Suede which she loves.
I don’t yet have a bottle of Sea Salt and Sage from last year’s collection still but it’s only a matter of time..
This year it is about Mimosa & Cardamom, and is described as: “Mists of honeyed, golden mimosa float above the spiciness of freshly crushed cardamom. Creamy tonka and smooth sandalwood woven under powdery heliotrope and Damask rose picked at dawn. Warm, ethereal, mesmerising.”

Here we are again, talking about the monthly favourites!
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.
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.
ID Hair By The Sea Seawater Spray (as seen here)
I can’t think of a more appropriate beauty product than a relaxing pillow mist for the times we are in. And it seems that I have tried most of them, and would like to share about the newest release. Jo Malone Lavender & Musk Pillow Mist which is a part of recent, LE, lavender collection.
As you would expect from Jo Malone, it comes in a beautiful minimalist glass bottle with a pastel lilac cap. Unlike their colognes, the pillow mist comes in a round bottle. You can tell straight away that it is a
