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.
I 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
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.
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 Shower – review.
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
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.
1 L’Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Lip Balm – review
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.
2 Clarins Gloss Prodige in 09 Water Lily – review
This may be my
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:
I don’t like taking full bottles of perfumes, so I have
