The first month of 2016 is already behind us. How does it feel? Was it a good one? Are you ready for the rest of 2016? Do you stick to your resolutions? 😉
It was a pretty good month beauty-wise for me, and here are the products I’ve been loving:
Nivea Nourishing Body Lotion For Very Dry Skin and a shower cream from this line. My Dad (!) actually got these two for me for Christmas, and I am really touched that he actually got the right products for my skin type. I usually take them with me when I go swimming but use them on a daily basis, too. I love how soft and smooth my skin feels afterwards, and how nice it smells. Considering how quickly I go through body creams and lotions it is nice to have something budget-friendly, as well.
Jo Malone Red Roses Cologne
I honestly don’t understand how could I miss the fact that Jo Malone discontinued Vanilla & Anise (and WHY would they do it?) so I am left with a half bottle only. At least I can still get this scent. Red Roses is definitely not for everyone, some of my friends laugh that I smell like a rose jam whenever I use it, and it may be a bit weird to smell like this when you wear a lot of black, leather, and red… but hey, life is supposed to be fun. I also have a candle which I adore as much as the cologne.
CND Solar Oil
I was getting gel manicure for about 6 months non-stop but once I was too busy to go to my manicurist who is absolutely amazing but works far away from my home (and work, too), and had to rush to the nearest salon as my nails were looking disgusting at that point. I can’t believe how
Regular readers will know my obsession with hand creams, here is actually a post about my top 5 from last year, and I should probably write an updated version at some point.

I am a huge believer in a hand cream, and I always have one in my handbag, always. It is a necessity in colder months to protect the skin, to moisturise and nourish it. Also, we all know – the way your hands look can give away your age. And I personally can’t stand dried out skin. Applying hand cream is a pure relaxing little luxury, especially when
As mentioned in this post, I had Nivea, Extended Moisture, Body Lotion, Dry to Very Dry Skin on my list every since my friend gave me hers to try. I did get myself a bottle afterwards, and I really, really loved it.
The funny thing is that I have to use a brand’s photo, as I gave my bottle to another friend in the end, as we were on a holiday together and she loved it so much, that I gave it to her, and still did not get a new one for myself.
So what is so good about this lotion? It does work! It melts into the skin, leaving it soft and smooth instantly, you can say goodbye to tight, itchy or sore [skin], the texture is lovely and the scent is nice, too.
Moreover, this lotion also feels amazing when
Can you believe that tomorrow is September already? Where did the time go? Yeah, I do realize that I say this almost every month. Actually, August was probably the best month for me this year so far so I am kind of sad that it’s over…
So, what beauty products I’ve been loving this month?
I have to start with shimmering body oils. I am sorry for going on, and on about them. But I am such a die hard fan that I am convinced that every girl needs one in her life. It is a
life game changer! A good oil moisturises the skin and you get that polished and glossy look the models rock in the magazines. I love Omorovicza and Clarins, but there are cheaper options out there, too.
One more products that I won’t shut up about is the Aromathepary Assosiates Deep Relax Bath and Shower Oil (review). In fact, some of my friends associate this scent with me at this point. This is the best product for relaxing. If you don’t believe in aromatherapy – wait until you try this one. I know that it is not the cheapest one but it will last for ages.
I also have to mention Nivea Extended Moisture, Body Lotion, Dry to Very Dry Skin, as it is a brilliant body moisturizer. Unfortunately, I don’t have a bottle any more so couldn’t include it in the photo. But I do promise to write a review soon.
Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm (review). I’ve decided to go back to this simple cleanser in August, as
Who doesn’t love a new beauty concept? With the amount of the beauty products that are available these days it can be pretty hard to be original and bring out something new.
I’ve heard a lot of raves about Nivea In-Shower Body Moisturizer, and since there are very few similar products ( I know Lush have one), I’ve decided to try it myself, especially since the price is so affordable!
It is basically a conditioner for your body! You use your regular shower gel, then apply this conditioner, leave it for several seconds, wash it off, and you are
