May 2013 Beauty Favourites

Can you believe that it’s almost Summer? It’s the last week of May, so it’s time for a monthly favourites feature.

And I want to start with beauty products:

May Beauty Favourites SachaJuan, 111Skin,  Clarins, Philip B

Hair

1. SachaJuan Ocean Mist

I have bought the Ocean Mist from my wish list this month and am absolutely in love with it! It gives just the right amount of texture and volume without making the hair too crispy. Now I just need to get the Shine Serum, too.

 2. Philip B Peppermint & Avocado Clarifying Shampoo

This product was also on my wish list and I am very happy with this purchase, as well. It smells absolutely divine, I am a huge fan of mint products for hair. I find that is leaves my scalp clean and “fresh” and  the hair super shiny.  I have got this in a kit and I’ve been loving all the products so far.

3. 111Skin Y Theorem Nac Y2 Facelift Repair Serum

This serum, which costs £190 was sent to me for the feature, and I was curious to see if it was worth the price. Unfortunately, for my wallet, it is absolutely fantastic. Definitely one of the best products I have ever used on my face!  I’d say that the skin looks super soft, smooth and plump afterwards.  I will definitely write about it in details in the future.

4. Clarins Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner

This is a gentle, yet effective exfoliating toner which helps to achieve a brighter and fresher complexion. I use mine two-three times per week. Review coming later.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Isola Bella Collection for Spring 2011

At last I am back, reading my e-mails and comments…My blog e-mail is full of  information  about some new exciting launches!

One of them is the Rouge Bunny Rouge new look which is called Isola Bella (what a beautiful name) which is just gorgeous! One of my favourite looks by them so far…

I like how this look is described by the brand so I thought I’d share with you:

“Isola Bella evokes the ease of respite during a mid-summer day in a scenic nook of an island. Tropical colours are inspired by its exotic flora; fluttering shades of green and grey around the eyes, terracotta for an overall glow, and the full bloom of rose on the lips, making Isola Bella very feminine and glistening. Summer reflections are captured in the make-up resulting in a dreamy but vivid look.”

You can create this look yourself with the following products:

Face

  • MILK AQUARELLE Liquid Foundation ‘Chestnut Milk Parfait’
  • NAKED DISGUISE Glide Concealer ‘Clio’
  • FINE-SPUN LIGHT Luminous Skin Wand ‘Alula’
  • AS IF IT WERE SUMMER STILL… Bronzing Glow Powder ‘at Neatherway Cove’

Rouge Bunny Rouge Incantation Fragrance

I have shared my opinion about the Rouge Bunny Rouge fragrance collection and I have great news! The brand just added a new  scent to the line – Incantation.

Here is the description:

“This darkly divine fragrant enchantress strikes a soothing yet arresting beat on the skin. In synchronised elation hurtle trailing vines of blackcurrant, mint and spices instantly inveigle. Voluminous and bitter-green fig-leaf-fans ignite the air with scented swathes of rich black fruits. While the silk and sylvan aroma of otherworldly rose in
