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


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.


May Beauty Favourites Clarins, YSL, Rouge Bunny Rouge, Japonesque, Trish McEvoy

5. Rouge Bunny Rouge Raven Glaze Lacquer Liner

I have been obsessed with this eye liner lately! It is definitely the makeup product of May. I have  been wearing a “cat eye makeup” almost every day and Raven is super easy to use, even on my hooded eyes, le sigh. Read the full review with swatches.

6 YSL Touche Eclat

It’s a must have for me, as I love how it instantly brightens the under eye area. And, God knows, I needed that effect lately.

7 Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors

Basically the only lip product I’ve been using on my lips this month. I still like the old shades a lot plus, since I have mini sized tubes, they are very travel-friendly. I “made”  two of my friends get it this month actually.The swatches.

8 Trish McEvoy Golden Bronzer

It is a nicely milled, beautiful bronzer and I have been using it almost every day to warm up and contour my face. It doesn’t look orange or muddy. See the swatch.

9 Japonesque Travel Blush Brush 924

This is one of my favourite brushes among  those that I have, the shape it perfect and it is super soft, too.  A pleasure to use. See my other Japonesque face brushes.

I also have to mention JO Loves scents, as I’ve been wearing them almost on a daily basis and have already reviewed the Mango Collection.

  1. I’m so intrigued by that Clarins Toner. We don’t have it here. I hope it’s new & it will eventualy be available. Btw Marina, I got the Clarins Lip Perfector in 05 Candy Shimmer and 06 Rosewood Shimmer. Loooove both! 🙂

    1. Hi Icaria,
      I don’t think it’s a new product, but if you can’t get it, other brands have similar ones. And I am so happy that you like the glosses, I adore mine)
