June 2017 Beauty Favourites

June was a very busy month for me, so I did not discover/rediscover that many beauty products, however, I truly love the ones I am mentioning, they are real gems.

Omorovicza Complexion Perfector BB SPF 20 (review and swatches). (Buy it from Cult Beauty, Net a Porter, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom)

This is one of the best base products I have ever used. I am convinced it is some kind of Magyar mágia (Hungarian magic), as it makes the face look flawless, radiant and even younger.

Current Hand Cream Obsessions: Soap & Glory and & Other Stories

Regular readers know that I am a hand cream fanatic, and I have written so many features on the ones I like during these seven years. The latest post was on Aveeno and Neal’s Yard Remedies, along with cheaper alternatives from Nivea and Garnier. Here is also a selection of my top 5 hand creams (which probably should be revisited).

And here are my latest discoveries…

Hand Creams Soap and Glory Hand Food and & Other Stories Couture Carnival Hand Lotion

& Other Stories Couture Carnival Hand Lotion 

I am so in love with this lotion that I have bought two bottles!  The beautiful minimalistic Scandinavian design, the convenient pump, the light and non-greasy but, at the same time, moisturizing texture.  And the smell. Oh, the smell of it!

I mean, you can’t go wrong with with something described as “rainbow
