June Favourites

I am in love with this season, it is just my favourite time of the year. The sun is shinning, the skin gets darker, the hair gets lighter.   Pure happiness is to sit somewhere watching the sunset and the sea. During this time of the year I don’t use a lot of makeup, but I definitely try to stick to a good skincare and hair routine. I tried a couple of new products and I really loved those ones:

Face Wash

I bought those two products – L`oreal Skin Expert Pure Clay Illuminating  Cleansing Gel and Garnier Fresh Clarifying Wash with Green Tea. I was really excited to try the first one because I have been using the clay face mask from the same brand. I love both of those face washes and I use them everyday. If you want to read more about them let me know in the comment section down below.

Take Care of Your Hair 

I got the chance to try out Moroccan Oil Extra Volume Shampoo and Conditioner, and I really like them. They make my hair very soft, smooth and light. I like the smell and the texture isn’t oily or heavy. I want to repurchase the real size products.

Cute Nails

I got a couple of new nail polishes since now I decided to take a small break from the gel-nail polishes. I really like those coral/ watermelon colours.

Bronzing powder 

A must-have in my summer makeup bag! This one is from Essence –  Sun Club Matt Bronzing Powder. It is in shade 02 Sunny.

6 Lipsticks & Lipliners for Spring Swatches

I decided to share with you 6 of my favourite lip colours at the moment. I use either lipsticks or I draw my lips with a lip pencil and I fill them in because it stays longer and the colours are more intense. So I have 3 lip pencils and 3 lipsticks from different drug store brands, here they are:

October Beauty Haul

 

image

Changing seasons got me needing some new products and of course moving to another place with all of those sales and new things for me was exciting and my curiosity made me buy half of the stuff I am going to show you down below. This month I bought a couple of beauty products, most of them I am trying for a first time 🙂 so here they are:

Garnier SkinActive Micellar Water

I saw a couple of blog posts about it, mainly with positive reviews and I finished my old one, so I decided to give it a try! I use it once a day, it is part of my night routine. It is very gentle to my skin and it doesn’t dry it out. I feel my skin cleaner and fresher after, because it removes extra oils and the make up left. I really recommend it.

L`oreal Nude Magique BB Cream

I was looking for some very light foundation or a bb cream. The packaging is just so cute, pink-purple-silverish tones are so beautiful. This one is white like a cream and you can feel pigment capsules – extra small pieces, when you put it on it matches your skin tone. It is light and it has very nice smell. My skin is oily so I need to set it up with powder or it is going to creese.

Sheer & Shine Lipstick Essence

I was looking for one store, but I got the wrong way, so incidentally I am in front of a big nice store for cosmetics. Of course I decided to go in.. and I end up buying some Essence products, which happened to be on sale. I picked up this lipstick in shade 02 Cute Nude. The formula is nice, light and hydrating. I really like the feel but I don’t think the shade suits me, because it is very light pink nude. But definitely I will try some a little bit darker ones.

Essence Lipliner

Same story… I chose lipliner in shade 06 Satin Mauve. It is little bit purplish and usually I will never try it out. But in the store I couldn’t see the true colour so I was expecting something nude to go with the lipstick.. anyway I love that one. I like the formula and it is long lasting, so I am very happy with it.

Shampoo and Conditioner Provost

Franck Provost is something I never heard of.. I was thinking it is some italian brand but below the name is written Paris, so I am confused lol! Anyway I took Expert Nutrition which suppose to be repairing and reliving. I use it about 1 week now, and I can say it is pretty good. Considering also the very affordable price of about 6-7 euros for 750 ml, I can say it is a deal.

Neutrogena Nourishing Body Lotion with Nordic Berry

This was my last beauty buy for October. Neutrogena products turn out to be very difficult for me to find here in Italy… This body lotion is my favourite item from this haul. It is super hydrating, my skin is very dry during autumn and winter, but this lotion is definitely my solution! The formula is not greasy and it absorbs very quick. It has very soft light smell. I love it.

P.S: Do you use some of those products? Share with me your October`s best beauty buys!
