Well, I originally planned to call it “February favourities”, but I reached the point it’d make more sense to describe it just as a bunch of stuff that I particularly liked recently and that I wanted to share with you. I hope you’ll enjoy it! 😄
Garnier Skin Active Micellar Cleansing Water.
It’s not exactly a recent crush, but more of “love from the first sight” kind of thing. What I’m really doing here is using this post as an excuse to write about it. It is by far one of my favourite cleansing products ever and I recommend it to everyone, from my colleaques to my Mom. I love how it absorbs the dirt and make up rather than just smear it all over your face. My skin really feels cleaner and fresher after using it. And, what’s always a big pro, it’s extra gentle with the eyes (I’ve tried lots of products but always struggled to find a suitable make up remover). It’s an amazing base for further cleansing, but sometimes when I’m really tired I just use this one (and it feels good enough). If you haven’t tried it yet, I really encourage you to give it a go.
Soap&Glory Supercat Liquid Eyeliner
It’s kind of a funny story (well, at least it makes me smile), because I havent’t really been using any eyeliner until quite recently. Some time ago I discovered Laura Lee’s youtube tutorials, what inspired me to improve my skills. Since then I’ve tested loads of eyeliners, but none if them satisfyed me completely and my eye make up depended on how much spare time do I have before leaving, because the wings were never even (or at least decent) and I have to swipe it off, try again, swipe off, apply again… it was always taking ages! Then I bought the S&G eyeliner and what can I say, it really saved me a lot of time! First of all, I find eyeliner pens most comfortable to use. And this one just glides so smoothly on the eyelid. The marker tip, as promised, really does create either a natural or bold line. The colour is intensive and lasts very long. And I can finally go out with a cat eye make up- as I’ve never had enough courage to wear it in public! If you’re still looking for a perfect eyeliner, I recommend this one with all my heart.
No7 Make Up Brush Cleaner
When it comes to bargains, I’m a lost case. I love Boots’ No7 vouchers and I feel an urge to spend them every time (luckily for my wallet, they’ve just expired). I bought once an eyelash curler, tried it, failed miserably and never took out of the box again (even though my boyfriend tried to demonstrate me how to use it properly). But this little gadget is quite useful. I tend to deep cleanse my brushes regularly (I can imagine dirt and bacterias pretty pictoresquely), but this cleaner comes handy in the meantime. You just squeeze a bit of product on a tissue or paper towel and sweep brush across it. Easy as that. I wouldn’t buy it if it wasn’t on offer, but for that price… why not?
OGX anti- breakage keratin oil shampoo & reviving oil
I’m so happy that I decided to try them out. The effects are really visible after relatively short time. Both of products contain keratin proteins and argan oil that help to resist breakage. They keep my hair smooth and moisturised. It also seems stronger and definitely there’s less of it left on a hair brush after brushing. The smell is wonderful and I really like the packaging. I also like the fact that you can use the oil either on wet or dry hair (without making it greasy). I think I’ll try much more of OGX products in the future (they’ve recently introduced some new lines and I think I’ll like them as well).
Soap&Glory Clean, Girls Body Wash and The Daily Smooth Body Lotion
I have to admit, I love almost every single S&G product, but it wasn’t until February when I bought this body lotion that instantly became my favourite. Leaves my skin perfectly smooth, hydrated and nourished, and the effect lasts long after application. I like to use both of products together- the wash also has a built-in moisturizing matrix (however the word “matrix” in reference to a body wash seemed a bit scary to me), but together they create a perfect combination for a little pampering session. And the scent is just incredible! (Mist You Madly is definitely my no1 option amongst them all).
So that’s it- my recent beauty discoveries. Have you tried any of them? Do you like it? And, last but not least, I know that the pictures’ quality is not the best, but I still live without any laptop, so I write posts manually and rewrite them on my phone (or on my brother’s computer).
Thank you for reading! ❤
