It’s the end of the month again so it’s time to share what I was mostly using during April.
Sooner or later I’m always going back to my Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder. It controls the shine of my combination skin, it’s lightweight, looks natural and in the changing season, it was what I exactly needed.
And although my face needed some mattifying, it also asked for nourishing and hydration. Lately, I’m using rose water as a toner. I don’t remember the brand that I’m showing here because I put it in a travel bottle a long time ago but you can find rose water easily and you can also make it on your own. It cleanses and balances my skin, makes it smooth and it can also soothe irritated skin. The benefits of using rose water are thousands and you can see it for yourself if you try.
I almost never suffer from chapped lips but I guess it’s because I use lip balm nearly 24/7. The one that I was carrying everywhere with me this month was Burt’s Bees Nourishing Mango Butter Lip Balm. It’s 100% natural and it has fruity flavour. I love it, I love how it softens my lips, I love how it smells, it’s tiny so it doesn’t take much space and you even forget that it’s in your pocket.
Nobody talks about feet, is it so shameful? Feet are part of our body and we should take care of them. In fact, we torture them a lot by wearing high heels and walking/training all the time and our feet need pampering too! Clarins Foot Beauty Treatment Cream is a combination of softening the foot skin and making your feet feel relieved after a tough day. It has arnica extract, virgin cashew nut oil, shea butter and myrrh that takes care of your nails. The smell is very, very gentle. Exfoliate your feet and then apply this cream, you won’t regret it.
You can see that I’ve been loving the L’Occitane Rose 4 Reines Body Milk. I love everything about this body milk – the scent of the Grasse, Bulgarian, Moroccan and Turkish roses, the milky texture, the way it softens my skin for a day ahead. It has also grapeseed oil and this product absorbs quickly so you can get dressed immediately after using it.
I usually prefer citrus notes for my fragrances but sometimes in the colder months I go for something heavier. Like Paco Rabanne’s Lady Million. When I say heavier I don’t mean masculine, it’s still feminine but it’s kind of bold. Plus, it stays much better on skin than when you just test it on paper for example.
So, that’s my list with favourites for this month.
