Favourite Beauty Products of 2018

Since I already posted about my favourite makeup products of 2018, it is time for beauty!

Face

I am in my (early) 30s, and I have very dry skin which requires a lot of attention so I take my skincare seriously.  I am aware that all of the products I am going to mention are high end but every single one works incredible for my skin, and  none was a press sample, which proves that I do have a very high opinion about them and am ready to invest.

SARAH CHAPMAN Ultimate Cleanse (from Net A Porter, Cult Beauty and  Space NK).

Currently Loving: Red and Berry Nail Polishes

I used to be a bit obsessed with all the different nail polishes. All those out-of-this-world stunning shades and innovative finishes  really rocked my world. Of course, I am no way even close to the  real nail polish fanatics, but I do have several shades of yellow, for example.

But recently something changed and I’ve been wearing classic colours all the time, think red/berry/plum.  I don’t know why, but every time I paint my nails with green or brown, I’m not feeling it. It’s been like this for about two months. Back to the basics?
