I haven’t posted about my new beauty and makeup purchases in a while, although I did feature them on Instargam, so here is a round-up.
Let’s start with beauty, I’ve actually got three products from Kiehl’s.
Original Musk Bath and Shower Liquid Body Cleanser which I’ve got after reading all the raves from Sandra, and for some reason I was expecting a more intense scent but I still like it.
I’ve also decided to finally try the hyped up concentrates – Midnight Recovery Concentrate and Morning Reviving Concentrate. I will definitely write detailed reviews later on, but so far I can say that on my very dry skin I can’t use them on their own, as I often do with serums/oils, I have to use a cream on top.
Finally, beauty wise, although I did not buy this product myself, and it was a gift from a friend, I’ve decided to mention it, as it is such a cool one – Tromborg Aromatherapy Body Oil Lavender Rose Tree (which I have already included in my favourites). From the motto ‘Scandinavian mood’ to luxurious packaging, nice formula and divine scent – it is as good as it gets.
As for makeup, it was all about Chanel, YSL, Smith & Cult and
Best of Beauty Master List. After testing thousands of beauty products, Allure named their 182 undisputed favorites. I’ve picked some items from the list and I will tell you why these products. Part 1 about Makeup products. Part 2 Skin and Hair Care.
Lancôme Galatée Comforting Milky Cream Cleanser ($30 to $47, depending on size) is a soothing, moisturizing lotion.
Why I picked this item: I have dry skin and I know that Lancome’s skin care is really worth trying
Johnson’s Softlotion Extra Care Healing Lotion ($4.99) smells powdery and a touch sweet, like the skin of a five-month-old. A few pumps is all you need to cover your entire body.
Why I picked this item: I LOVE their products and I am using some of them right now. But I never tried this one before.
Helioplex? In a hand cream? Say no more. Neutrogena Age Shield Hand Cream SPF 30 ($5.99) absorbs in an instant, leaves our hands smooth for hours, and wards off sun spots.
Why I picked this item:
If you follow me on twitter you know that I am feeling myself really bad for the whole day. I had a lot of great posts for you today but I just can’t write them today. I was in bed for the whole day. The pain was just killing me but it is better now!
The only positive thing is that I watched the first episode of Desperate Housewives 6 and read the new Vogue issue( post is comming)
But how can I leave you without a daily beauty post? 😛
This month Allure published their Best of Beauty list! Here are some products that I would love to have. And what would you get? Editors spent months testing thousands of items to find the 189 true stars. Check it out here
Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Lipcolor in Absolute Rouge, $29. With all due respect to Marilyn, not everyone wants to resemble a modern pinup. This creamy, luminous red looks rich—not retro.

I have to say that I am a bit of a shower gel snob, and that doesn’t mean that I don’t like a good ol’ Nivea or similar brands, it is just sometimes you get so busy that shower can be the only “me/relaxation” time. This is why it really matters what products I am using.
For me the most important factor is the scent, I love me a good aroma-therapy session. I also want it to be non-drying but I have to use a cream/butter after any shower product. Yes, any.
Kiehl’s Original Musk caught my attention because of the name, obviously, I like musky/warm scents, especially in winter. And it being Kiehl’s I’ve also expected high quality.
Moreover, I like the
