November 2016 Beauty Favourites

First of all, how is it December already? I mean how is it the last month of 2016?! Are you excited for 2017? I know I am!

When I have gathered the beauty favourites to take a photo, I have realised that most of them are the same products I’ve featured in October so here are only the ones which I haven’t.

Before we start, I would like to mention some other things  I really loved in November which are beauty related, too.

Book – Branded Beauty by Mark Tungate (from Amazon and Amazon UK). I think everyone who is interested in beauty and brands should read it, the book is packed with interesting facts and quotes.  I personally really enjoyed the history of so many companies and the explanation about the marketing tips and tricks.

Mr. Selfridge TV Series.  (Amazon and Amazon UK). I’ve had this on my to-watch list for a long time already but gave it a go only last weekend, and it is great. I love how it shows the pre -WWI history of the legendary Selfridges.  Imagine that it was unthinkable to sell beauty products over the counter back in the days for obvious reasons, it is very well shown in Season 1 Episode 3.

Sparkles. I have to admit, I just have to have anything sparkling these days to brighten up the grey and dark November days, which feel like forever nights actually.

I also simply  have to include

October 2015 Beauty Favourites

October is one of my favourite months and I am kind of sad that it is over already but it was a great one despite the fact that I was ill for over a week.

I’ve decided that before talking about my beauty favourites, I’d mention some other things I like/enjoy:

  • I’ve finally went to my first swimming class after planning on going for months. Since I’ve got sick the next day I haven’t been back yet but I will be. Next week.
  • Downton Abbey. That 1920’s style…And I refuse to accept that it’s the last season.
  • Since I was ill for a week at home, I’ve got time to read and it was wonderful. I was mostly reading cultural and philosophical articles (yeah, I do love such topics) but here is my reading list.
  • And finally – Pinterest. This has to be my favourite social media, I am always browsing/pinning/saving photos.

Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in Alluring Rose (review and swatches)

This is probably my favourite launch of the year. Seriously, I could not love these blushes more than I do, and I feel like I have been going on, and on about them. They have the creamiest and softest texture, blend beautifully and have that all-in-one effect.  You don’t really need any highlighter or sculpting, just this. And

Best Beauty Products of 2014: Skincare

Here is finally a third part of my 2014 favourites: you can see part one here and part two here. This time it is all about skincare… Best Beauty Products of 2014 Skincare Elemis Ren FOM Clarins Algenist Jo Malone

Cleansers

Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm (Review) This was definitely my favourite cleanser of the year, it smells divine, feels gentle on the skin and leaves it smooth and plumped. Having a massage with it is so relaxing and pampering, a great way to finish off a busy day and have some “me” time.

One-Step Facial Cleanser with Orange Extract (review)

When I am in a rush, and don’t have time for a “proper” cleanse, which is usually in the mornings, – this is the product I reach for. I find that it works great for my dry and sensitive skin, removes the makeup and does leave the skin feeling amazing, as if I did the whole cleanse-tone routine. Did I mention the lovely scent?

Best Affordable Face and Body Creams for Dry and Very Dry Skin

I often get asked about the affordable skin and body care.  Is it even possible to find great options without spending too much? Turns out it is!

So, what about my favourite [not expensive] face and body creams? They both are actually from the same brand – Garnier. In fact, I love tonnes of Garnier products, and will probably share about my other favourites pretty soon.

Best Affordable Face and Body Cream for Dry and Very Dry Skin garnierI have very dry skin and not that many products work for me… But these two rock, especially considering the price, I am very impressed!

I am using the stock images since I have just used up Garnier Moisture Match Ultra Hydrating – Goodbye Dry (50ml £5.10) and used up Garnier Body Bodyrepair Anti-Dryness Restoring Moisturiser Extra Dry Skin (400ml £5.20) a long time ago. In fact, I’ve  gone through two tubes of it, and need to get a new bottle.
