Autumn Beauty Empties

I have a new rule when it comes to beauty products, one out – one in (ok, maybe more than one in)! Meaning that I am allowed to buy new beauty products only after I finish some from those that I already have. This is why I get a bit excited when I see a new empty bottle in my bathroom.

I actually have some new items on the way to me, as I type. Can’t wait to try my them all!

I know that it’s not the end of Autumn yet, and there are still three weeks, but I have big doubts that I will finish anything else by the end of the month.

And by the way, here are Summer Empties. I’ve decided to do such features every season.

Autumn beauty empties body creams and bath oils makeup4allI really love  bath oils,  so, since  I’ve used up two of my favourites Lavera Organic Wild Rose Bath Oil  and Cowshed Lazy Cow Soothing Bath & Body Oil  to the very last drop – I’ve already ordered some new ones, which are on their way to me.

Since I have very dry skin, I have to use body moisturizers, sometimes more than once a day, so I go through them quite quickly and this month I have finished the following products:

The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Body Butter. I think these butters don’t need any introduction and explanation, they are fantastic.

  Aromatherapy Assosiates Enrich Body Serum. I never used a body serum before, and was excited to try such kind of product, as it makes sense to use serums/oils on the body before a cream just, as you would on the face. It works! Plus, as

Shower & Bath Products Of The Week. Vol 3

It’s been forever since I did a post about the products in my shower, and I am always curious to see what products other people use, so thought I’d share about mine, too.

Shower & Bath Products Of The Week

1. Clarins Tonic Bath & Shower Concentrate – review.

This is an instant pick-me-up product. I love using it in the mornings, or after a workout. I am a big fan of Clarins Tonic range in general, by the way.

2. LUSH Glogg Showerreview.

I really love this spicy and warm fragrance, very  comforting, and is a perfect  scent for a colder weather.

3.  LUSH Happy Hippy Shower Gel review

It is a nice citrus jelly shower product, with a subtle fragrance, so can be used both in the mornings and

Inside My Makeup Bag: Lip Products

I have a habit of accumulating lip products in my bag… Although it got batter with time, I still have around three – five by the end of the week.

So, I’ve decided to look inside the makeup bag that I carry with me (and it’s only Wednesday) and see what  lip products are there, and here are the results.

This is a very good lip balm, and, I think, I have with me pretty much all the time. It is moisturising without being greasy, exactly what I like in a balm.

My Makeup Bag: June 2013

I am currently away for two weeks, finally not for work, I can spend time with my family &  friends and relax. I did not want to take a lot of makeup with me (mostly because I have too many other things), and since a lot of you are always asking what products I take with me (and I love similar posts myself), I thought I’d show you.

So here are very few products that I’ve packed for my personal use:

For face I have Clarins BB cream, YSL bronzer and BECCA’s Amaryllis blush.

For the eyes I’ve chosen my Lancome’s brown pencil, shu umura’s eye lash curlers, Ellis Faas mascara and what is left of my Benefit’s eye brow pencil.

As for lips, there are three products – L’Occitane’s lip balm, Clarins’ Instant Lip Perfector (not shown) and a juicy YSL’s Volupte Sheer Candy in 04 Succulent Pomegranate.

I don’t like taking full bottles of perfumes, so I have
