So, October arrived along with the fall. Let’s have a look at what I’ve been loving in the month of September!
Will start with a skincare product because it’s what was keeping my skin in a good condition and it’s the Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask. You can see that I’ve done a full review on it and how happy I am that it works well with my combination skin. The only thing that I might change is start using it more often and not just once a week. Lovely product!
Is it going to be me without including a lip balm favourite? The Burt’s Bees Rejuvenating Lip Balm with Açaí berry has Vitamins A, C, D and E, antioxidants and omega oils. It’s probably my 5th or 6th lip balm by Burt’s Bees but I just love them – they’re travel friendly, they keep your lips moisturised and they smell amazing (however, I think that Mango Butter is still my all-time favourite from them).
I don’t wear eye shadows that often but when I got the KIKO Eye Base Primer I knew that I would try to use it under my eyes as well. I suffer from really dark under eye circles and my makeup routine involves quite a bit of concealing and brightening. This eye primer has a thick consistency but it’s very soft, almost like a mousse and is in a nude shade which leaves you with a very pretty base. It’s almost like a concealer but not with such coverage. The eye shadows (and the concealer under my eyes) last pretty long without creasing when I’m using this primer underneath. I think you get a really good quality product for the price, I was actually surprised.
Weather is getting colder and colder and we need more hydration and nourishing. I love body oils, so when I was at my local Kicks store (Kicks is a chain in Norway, Sweden and Finland that offers high-end products as well as some drugstore ones) I noticed that they had new products from their own brand and decided to pick the Skin Treat Pure Natural Oils Body Oil Spray which contains Fairtrade ingredients. It has macadamia oil, apricot kernal oil and olive oil and this combination brings such a divine scent! It leaves a soft feeling on your skin, it’s almost warming and I really like it. Plus, absorbs really quickly because it’s a ”dry” oil.
Last but not least, the second consecutive time that I’m including a Ciaté London nail polish from their Beach House collection (review here) in my monthly favourites. After the gorgeous bright pink Knickerbocker Glory in August, now I’ve been loving Amazing Gracie – such a pretty nude. And although it’s my least favourite from the bunch when it comes to application, I’m absolutely in love with the shade.
