The month of June is coming to an end and the last few weeks have been so crazy and exciting for me and the people around me that I’m going to miss it.
Probably, most of you are having a proper summer but for me, it’s just beginning. In this month’s favourites you will see some products that I’ve already featured in a favourites post. It just shows how much I love them and how good they work on my skin. Of course, there are items that I tried for first time and I can’t wait to share it all with you.
I will start with a skincare product combination that has been wonderful for me and it’s the Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Active Concentrate and the Clarins Lotus Face Treatment Oil. The first one is basically a serum, it’s very lightweight, contains lactic acid which is perfect for oily or combination skin but lactic acid is also a hydrating acid. It makes my skin soft and smooth, blemish-free and nourished at the same time. I’ve mentioned the Clarins oil hundreds of times (review here), I guess but there’s a reason for this. I’ve said that it balances my skin out and calms it but there is something about using these two products together. My skin looks fresh and radiant and healthy. If I use it every day, I may not see the great results but if I skip a couple of nights or replace them with other products, the next morning my skin doesn’t look so well. Love these together at the moment!
Natural look is my choice most of the time but in the past few weeks I minimised the number of make-up products on my face even more. I was basically using only two lip products – a lip liner topped with a lip balm. I love the muted coral colour of the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil in Naked*. It gives a hint of colour to make you look fresh but at the same time looks absolutely natural on the lips. I add a bit of lip balm on top and there you have it, a natural and hydrating but long-lasting lip for the day.
Although June wasn’t a warm month in Norway, I was still picking mainly summer nail shades. One of my favourites is from Topshop Nails in Sweet & Elite. I mentioned that I didn’t like a varnish from their matte nail range but this one is really cute. It’s a pretty pastel purple with amazing formula that goes smoothly and streak-free. I need two coats for an opaque look. Well, it doesn’t last more than two days on my nails but I haven’t found a nail polish that does. I like that it dries pretty fast, as well.
Last but not least is a product that I didn’t like at first. I’m talking about CoLab and their Tokyo Dry Shampoo. Luckily, I found the right way to use it and see results. If you want an instant refresh for your hair, you probably won’t get it with this shampoo. I spray it the night before I’m going somewhere out or several hours before I need results. It just takes time to actually work but once it does, my hair looks and smells really nice.
