July 2016 Beauy Favourites

I have to say that I am loving exactly the same beauty and makeup products that I have been loving in June, I should only add a few extras.  If you can still get those Clarins eye shadows and bronzer – do it! I use both almost every single day, and don’t want anything else. In fact, two of my girlfriends bought them after they’ve tried mine and got obsessed, as well.

The love for coffee body scrub, Color Wow hair Shellac and the bronzing drops is still going strong, too.

But here are the products that I would like to add to the list of favourites.

L’Oreal Glam Shine in Dazzle 201 Sparkle Shower (review and lip swatches)

It seems like this was the only lip product I have been loving this month besides the lip balm. I’ve bought this gloss last July and almost used it up. It smells delicious, feels nice on the lips and looks ridiculously pretty with that multi-dimensional glitter effect. Can’t get enough of it. And it is cheap, too.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Long-lasting Brow Liner ALCHEMY in Antimony 088

Rouge Bunny Rouge finally launched their eye brow collection which consists of four products: two eye brow pencils and two eye brow gels. I will write a detailed review with swatches soon but today I want to tell you about the Antimony eye brow pencil which is slim  and allows incredible precision. The shade is not warm which is perfect and the formula is soft but not smudgy. It was worth the wait!

Skincare

Garnier SkinActive Oil-Infused Micellar Cleansing Water

I’ve used up several bottles of the original Garnier micellar water and finally bought this one in July, and I am loving it. It cleanses the skin really well, without leaving an oily residue.  I also find

Algenist Advanced Anti-Aging Repairing Oil Review. Rave

I want to tell you about one of the best products I have ever put on my face – Algenist Advanced Anti-Aging Repairing Oil. It is so good the words cannot describe.

I was recently on a holiday in Greece and, although I did not really “bake” my skin under the sun, it was still dehydrated and “wrinkly”, it almost seemed like I had fine lines on my forehead.

For some reason all my favourite oils/serums/masks just couldn’t cope… And then I’ve realized that I had this,which I’ve bought as a part of a set from Sephora, so decided to give it a go.

And, wow! I was blown away by the results!

It feels very light on the skin, absolutely non-greasy, and no strong scent, too. You can instantly see  and feel the difference. The skin looks

Clarins Double Serum Review. Rave

I am a huge fan of Clarins skincare, as you all know, so that is why I was excited to try their Double Serum. This was the most promoted Clarins product in years and the campaign was huge.  There were a lot of different reviews, a lot of people raved, some  were put off by the mineral oil. And I’ve decided to wait, and use up the whole bottle before sharing my experience.

Clarins Double Serum Review RaveAs you can tell from the photo above, I did use up the whole bottle. And… I did love this serum a lot.

It is  a two-phased system Hydric + Lypidic system, which means that you mix it before applying to the face. It is labelled as “age control with 20 anti-ageing pure plant extracts”, and I was told that it will be more effective if you are 25+.

So what is my impression?

This AW season I was sick twice, and this product literally saved my skin! You know how the skin can react to a long-time cold? Yes, that. And this serum was the only thing I’ve used morning and night. It literally brought my dry, flaky and dull skin “back to life”.

And what about the general effect?

I am

Used Up Products: Elemis, Clarins, Vichy, Apivita. LUSH, Lancome and Philip Kingsley

I actually love  seeing what products other people finished and what products they re-purchased (even more). So I thought I’d show you some of the products that I have finished.

Although I love trying new products very much, some I re-purchase, as I find them to be amazing. Unfortunately, I have already thrown away most of the packages but here is what is left.

Two Shampoos

Vichy Dercos Shampooing Treatment Oil Control

I actually really liked this for summer as it cleaned my hair nicely without stripping it. I would re-purchase but I have already ordered a Cowshed shampoo which I’ve wanted to try for a long time already.

Philip Kingsley Body Building Shampoo

Unfortunately, this shampoo did not work for me because my hair got greasy after about 1.5 days which was not good at all.  I would try other shampoo from the range but would not get this one again. I am actually taking PK vitamins for hair for the second month already (the course is four months) and I think I can see some improvements already. But will update on that in September.

Two Elemis products

Elemis tranquil Touch Body Polish (review here)

I had to cut the packaging to get every single drop of this product. I have actually purchased the second tube already. Next time I plan to get their mint scrub as it’s the only scrub from the brand I haven’t tried yet. Their Exotic Lime and Ginger Salt Glow is brilliant, too.

Elemis  Treat Your Feet Foot Cream (review here)

This has to be the best foot cream I have ever tried! It is very effective and the scent is to die for. Whenever I use it and someone is around, I always get asked about it. And, yes, I have ordered one more tube last week. I highly
