May Favoritessreda, junij 01, 2011
This month's favorites post will include a bit more products than usual, I just had a lot of favorites this month. (colored text is a link to the review)
Starting with make up: again featured in my favorites is L'Oreal Million Lashes Extra Black mascara. It is my HG mascara, it separates beautifully, gives length and volume plus it's really black. I think I only wore E.l.f.s Mineral lipstick in Runway Pink this month, It's the perfect nude pink color, great for everyday. Miss Sporty nail polish in 370 is a coral pink shade which is great for summer. I love this nail polish, it applies so easy. I haven't wore any foundation or concealer this month because my skin got so much better, so I mostly wore only Givenchy Mattisime powder (great powder btw. I've had it for years, it doesn't actually leave completely mat finish but a bit satiny, which in my opinion looks so much better) and sometimes E.l.f.'s Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15. The reason I have this two products in my favorites is because they turned out to have fantastic sun protection. I spent the entire day in the sun with last years Sun Dance's sun screen and I got burned on my shoulders and back, but not on my face, because I was wearing the powder and tinted moisturizer. I've already raved about St.Tropez Bronzing Mousse and Clarins Liquid Bronze Self Tanning for face and decollete. There are two products that I loved the most this month and Calvin's Klein Euphoria is one of them. I know it's a bit strong for summer, but I just like it so much.
In the last month my skin got so much better. I think I only had one or two minute spots, but most of the time just clear, bright and very soft skin. I use Bioderma Sensibio for removing my make up, than I clean my skin with honey (yes, honey. I have the one in a squeeze tube because it's easier to use), next I use my homemade aspirin toner (brilliant stuff! I use one aspirin and a couple of squirts of aloe vera dissolved in 50 ml of water. It reduced spots to minimum, plus they heal so much faster. You can find how to make it yourself on MUA, just search for aspirin toner). As moisturizer I use my trusted Vichy Aqualia Thermal serum mixed with a drop or two of Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multipurpose Dry oil and I swear my skin never looked better. My forehead looks retouched, no dry patches, no spots, just clear skin (I sound like a bad comercial, haha. I just hope it lasts!). Nuxe's oil is my favorite product this month, I use it on my face, hair and for my body, it's just amazing. I'll write a post on my complete skin care in the next days.
And the last three products are for hair. Orofluido Shampoo is one of the best (if not the best) shampoo I used. I leaves your hair soft and shinny in combination with Redken's All Soft Conditioner and John Frieda Brilliant Brunnete Shine Shock my very dry hair looks moisturized and shinny plus they are super soft, well at least for a couple of days, then they get really dry again (I need a good leave-in conditioner, I'm thinking something from Tigi S Factor). Redken's All Soft Conditoner leaves your hair super, super soft, no other conditioner had such an effect.
Hope you enjoyed this post. Have a great day :)
