Makeup4all Loves: Bade Anstalten Soaps

New week, new Makeup4all loves feature? This is all because lately I only want to share about the products which I do enjoy using. Hence today I am bringing you a review of a soap that I think is worth your attention. Can anything be more dull than soap, I can hear you asking… True! But hear me out.

With all the hand washing in the recent environment we all want something gentle and non-drying. So here is my personal discovery of 2021. Bade Anstalten soaps! I loved them so much that I had to repurchase straight away, as you can see. And with such
a variety of products on the market this kind of commitments means a lot.

Please meet the brand’s Cucumber and Mint Liquid Soap. I have bought loads of Danish beauty products recently, including from this brand, and have to say that it is the soaps that really stood out.

So what is so special about this particular product?

Makeup4all Loves: Givenchy Le Rouge Liquide

I am a huge fan of Givenchy lipsticks, and have been for years. Slick and sophisticated leather design with a rock n roll vibes? Yes, please! It is just very me. I have several Givenchy lip products, and last year a friend of mine very kindly gifted me Le Rouge Liquide. And it is love at first sight.

The formula is phenomenal. It is nothing like your average liquid lipstick which sucks the life out of your lips, feels dry and sometimes even looks crusty on! Le Rouge Liquide

Red Nails: butter LONDON Smashing

I could not think of a better topic for a new feature than a red polish that I am currently loving. By the way, if you want to keep in touch and see regular updates, please follow me on Instagram, as I post stories a few times a week if not daily.

I do love red nail polish, there is nothing quite like it for me, beauty wise. And I have written about my numerous favourites over the years.

And today, as always, I want to proclaim my love for yet another red. This time is is from butter LONDON. This was actually one of the first premium nail polish brands I have discovered. In fact, you can read my interview with their Creative Director here.

Meet Smashing!, which is described, as a fiery siren red, and it is, indeed. It definitely packs a punch. Smashing,

Aesop Body Cleanser And Aromatique Hand Balm

First of all, I apologise for a long absence. It was mainly due to the fact that someone (we all know that “someone” is not the word I want to use here) stole my Twitter account. And, while I did contact Twitter as soon, as I saw that, it was dragging on for ages, and instead of giving it back to me, it was blocked in the end. 

Can’t believe I’ve spent 12 years of my life building and sustaining my account with such an outcome.  This was the most appalling customer support I have ever experienced.  The whole situation made me so angry that I had no desire to even update the website and had to take some time off. But let’s leave it at that. Life goes on…

By the way, you can follow me on Instagram for more regular updates.

Today I want to share about the products from a brand which doesn’t need an introduction. And that is Aesop! I have two products here which I wanted to talk about.

Why these two products in one post you may ask? What unites them is their unique scent. 

AESOP Coriander Seed Body Cleanser (500ml ), £33

I love how the brand describes the fragrance as “unorthodox”, and it really is. Coriander is such a love or hate herb so it depends on your preferences.  

Aesop combined coriander with black pepper and patchouli so you get that woody and spicy scent which is truly invigorating and refreshing.  As I’ve already said, it has that truly one-of-a-kind aroma to it. The scent fills the bathroom and makes you feel great. And this is exactly what we all want. 

You can use it

Makeup4all Recommends: Aquis Hair Turban

I am absolutely in love with my Aquis Hair Turban. But I can hear you saying: “£30 for a hair towel. No, thank you” And I was just like that myself. So hear me out! I am wearing mine as I type this, in fact.


Of course, you can use a regular towel, as I did for years. Or buy a cheaper hair turban. But this one is life changing. Dramatic much?

First of all, it helps to dry the hair so much quicker compared to the regular towels. It is a fast absorbent fabric (80% polyester + 20% nylon).

The turban is made of light and soft fabric, it takes a lot less space. Mine is 25*68 cm (10*27 in).

Furthermore, it just stays on and doesn’t move around. You drape and twist it, and use a button to secure it. I even did
