Empties #8

DSC_1087post

I can’t believe that this is my first post with empty products for 2016! I’ve had so many new products to try, so many things to write about that somehow my empties kept growing without me realising it. So, let’s have a look at all of them…this might actually be a pretty long post.

DSC_1089post
Face
Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder – I always go back to this powder, I love it, it keeps me matte but doesn’t look flat, it’s great, it’s from the drugstore and this was probably my 6th pot of it;
MAC Mineralise Skinfinish Natural in Medium Plus – Another favourite of mine, I actually got it in a darker shade, so that I could use it as a bronzer because it really looked natural and not too dark;
Max Factor Lipfinity – Liquid lipsticks really aren’t my thing. I love this shade which sadly, isn’t written on the tube and I forgot the name of it but it’s a gorgeous deep pink colour. However, the texture is quite heavy, it dries out my lips, it’s impossible to remove and at some point it just peels off. I admit that I’m throwing this away without actually using up the product;
Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer in 201 Solstice – This on the other hand, oh my, I love this lip lacquer and I’m very sad it’s over because we don’t have Rimmel in Norway! The shade is beautiful, the texture isn’t of a liquid lipstick, isn’t of a lip gloss, it’s something in between, lacquer describes it really well, actually. It has a shine but it’s thicker than a gloss, it’s not drying like the liquid lipsticks are, it doesn’t last a really long time on the lips but feels comfortable, looks flattering and I’ll be definitely repurchasing;
Maybelline ColourSensational in 130 Peach Juice – I don’t know what I was thinking when I got this lipstick, maybe it just looked different in the store and their low lighting but it’s definitely not a peach shade, it’s bright pink and I could make it work pairing it with other lipsticks but I didn’t reach out for it often and it started smelling funny, so it’s time to say goodbye;
Urban Decay Perversion Mascara – Although this mascara has bristle brush, which I normally don’t go for, I really liked it especially because it made my lashes really black and separated without making them crispy;
Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water – Another bottle is gone and I already have a few new ones, this micellar water just gently removes the major part of my make-up before cleansing and toning my face;
LUSH Tea Tree Water – It was not a bad one but I can make my own tea tree toner really easy and that’s why I don’t think I’d repurchase;
Estelle & Thild Facial Toner Neroli – Love the brand, loved how gentle this toner was, sadly, it has been discontinued, I believe;
Balea Lotus Eye Cream – One of my favourite affordable eye creams. It’s hydrating but feels light, it’s not stingy and makes my under eye area really soft;
Simple Revitalising Eye Roll-On – Eye product for the warmer months that has a nice cooling effect and non-sticky gel formula;
Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Active Concentrate – That was the first time I tried this product from my favourite Eucerin range and I loved it. It’s basically a serum with lactic acid that kept me blemish-free but without drying out the face and made my skin incredibly soft;
La Roche-Posay Effaclar K – This tube lasted me a really long time because I used the product only as an additional step when I had really bad breakouts to help the healing process and it was really nice. I think it has a new formula now and I’m curious to try it;
Biotherm Aquasource Cocoon – I love the way Biotherm products smell and this face cream gave me the needed moisture in the winter months but without making me oily and without being heavy on my combination skin. It feels quite rich and balmy but sinks into the skin quickly and leaves it hydrated. Really liked it as a make-up base, as well;
Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser – At first, I was a bit scared of this cleanser because it felt heavy and too foamy but I quite enjoyed it after that. It wasn’t stripping but it was also good for the shine control. However, I’m trying to use another type of cleansers at the moment and I won’t be getting another tube of it;
Formula 10.0.6 One Smooth Operator – Same applies for this exfoliant. I didn’t mind it when I was using it but now that it’s been so many months after I used it up, I think it might be a bit too harsh for my skin.
Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask – A favourite! Already have a new tube of this amazing face mask and I don’t think I can be without it;
Biotherm Lip Balm – This was a random purchase, I got it from an airport because I needed a lip balm but I didn’t like it so much. Maybe it can be better as an overnight treatment though;
Eco Lips Berry Lip Balm SPF 15 – An organic balm that smells really nice and has amazing moisturising properties, I loved it;
Sephora Green Tea Eye Mask – I’m really sad that there are no Sephora stores in Norway, I adore their masks, they are so calming, refreshing and nourishing;
Beauty Formulas Deep Cleansing Nose Pore Strips – Ok, I know this isn’t the best thing for your skin but I have an addiction;
MaskerAide Detox Diva and Beauty Rest’ore Sheet Masks – I saw these masks at the drugstore a few weeks ago, they looked fun and they had a lot of promises on the packaging, so I picked out two of them. I have to say, I really liked them and I honestly can’t wait to try more, they were so relaxing, they left my skin soft and radiant. I’m also curious about the eye masks from the brand.

Body
Ziaja Lime-Citrus Shower Gel – Ziaja have some amazing body washes and although I like their Orange Butter one more, this one felt really fresh and nice, too;
Dove Purely Pampering Almond Cream Body Wash – Looking at the empty bottle of this, I wonder why I haven’t purchased a new one yet. It has a lovely warm scent, soft and creamy texture and I really enjoyed using this body wash;
All Nature Angelica and Argan Oil Shower Gel – This one smelled a bit like candy but without being too sweet, it was nice and non-drying;
Sante Grenadine Spirit Shower Gel – My favourite winter body wash, reminds me of Christmas and I’d like to try more from the brand;
Balea Fresh Smoothie Shower Gel – To me this one smelled like green apples although the packaging said otherwise, I like Balea body washes because they just seem fun and they have tons of different scents;
Balea Buttermilk & Lemon Peeling – Another product with a nice scent, to me this smells like lemon drizzle cake but the exfoliating properties weren’t that great, unfortunately;
Sanctuary SPA White Lily & Damask Rose Body Scrub – Same applies for this scrub, it just didn’t do anything but I loved the fragrance;
– Sanctuary SPA White Lily & Damask Rose Body Lotion – Not the most moisturising body lotion but again, my favourite Sanctuary SPA scent;
Soap & Glory Scrub + Happiness Hand Scrub – I got this mini in a set and it lasted me a really long time, it does a great job at exfoliating the hands without being too harsh and smells like all Soap & Glory products, sweet and nice;
CD Pomegranate Deo – It turns out it’s really hard to find aluminum-free deodorants, so I was really happy to get this one, I liked the gentle scent and I’d definitely purchase another one;
Lancome La Vie Est Belle – I have so much love for this fragrance… It reminds me of London, brings back great memories, it’s feminine and elegant but a bit sweet, as well, it’s just lovely;
Cutex Nourishing Nail Polish Remover – There isn’t any nail polish remover that can compete with my favourite Lilly one but this one wasn’t bad. It actually leaves a nice scent even after washing the hands, it feels soft and non-drying and I’d repurchase if I can’t find my favourite one;
Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream – This mini tin lasted me such a long time, I really like this product to soften my cuticles and also nourish my nails and the skin around them;
Origins Rejuvenating Hand Cream – An underrated hand cream that isn’t greasy but hydrates really well, I liked it a lot;
L’Occitane Immortelle Brightening Hand Cream SPF 20 – I used to pair this hand cream with another one because it wasn’t the most moisturising one, I think it’s good for spring and autumn but for the colder months, I needed a second one. However, L’Occitane hand creams are some of my favourites;
Baby Foot Easy Pack – This is a very strange product for me although, many people use it a lot. First of all, it’s quite pricey for just one pair of plastic socks and that put me off at the beginning but then I had problems in the winter and decided to give it a go. It really made the skin of my feet incredibly soft and smooth but during the two weeks of waiting for all the dead skin to peel off… it was just looking and feeling very unpleasant. But I have to say, I’d do it again because the results were amazing.

DSC_1095post
Hair
L’Oreal Ever Sleek No Sulphates Smoothing & Intensely Nourishing Shampoo – Loved this shampoo, it made my hair shiny, soft and smelling so nice;
Swiss O’ Par Tea Tree Oil Shampoo – This is my purifying shampoo that I use once a week and many people hate the smell of it. I don’t mind it and I love how clean my hair gets with it;
All Nature Thyme & Rosemary Shampoo – That was my previous clarifying shampoo which I liked, too. It just made my hair clean and shiny, with a lot of volume;
COLAB Tokyo Dry Shampoo – A dry shampoo that needs to be sprayed a few hours before you go out or the night before to actually notice a difference but it really refreshes the hair and gives it a bit of volume without leaving white residue or sticky feel. I’m really happy that the brand is now available in Norway but the price is 3 times higher than in the UK, sadly;
Dove Intensive Repair Hair Mask – I love Dove hair products and this was no exception, a nice nourishing mask;
Mark Hill Big Night Out Detox Gloss Treatment – This was a random purchase but I quite liked the product, it really made my hair shiny and beautiful and smelled amazing.

These are my first empties for 2016, hope you could find something helpful in the lines above!

Battle of the Dry Shampoos

IMG_3508post
I don’t know what I’d do without dry shampoos. Actually, I know! I’d stay up at 4-5 am to wash my hair every morning. I’ve been doing this for years at school and then uni. Honestly, it was a torture. I just always like to have my hair clean, I get compliments on the way it looks and smells but my second day hair is actually quite flat.

Dry shampoos are good for those days when we’re in a rush and our hair starts to look not so clean anymore but with a little help, it can still have a fresh and nice appearance. I also like to use dry shampoos when I need a bit more volume and/or texture. It’s actually quite a versatile product for me.
I haven’t used hundreds of dry shampoos but it’s a product that I always have in my stash and I always try to find new ones and see which one is the best dry shampoo. Here are a few of my latest and probably best purchases and hopefully, the comparison between them will help you choose your next dry shampoo. The most important thing to remember for all of them is that you have to use it on dry hair, to shake well the can and to spray from about 15 cm distance.

Let’s begin with Batiste because there are two of them here and it’s probably the most popural dry shampoo brand. The first one, Heavenly Volume is the most powdery of all but it also works instantly. It absorbs the excess grease, it does give a good amount of volume and texture and the chalky look is gone pretty quickly. However, if you don’t like the thick feel when you run fingers through the hair, you probably won’t be a fan of this one. The second one is in their Oriental scent. Smells lovely and does a great job. It doesn’t give so much volume but it’s not supposed to. It’s a little bit lighter that the Heavenly Volume one but still works great on me.

Moving on to Dove Refresh+Care which was probably the most looked for dry shampoo. I was hearing so many good reviews on it but so far, I’ve found it only in the UK. It’s definitely worth the hype, there is almost no white residue, smells amazing (my personal favourite when it comes to scents) and refreshes the hair after a minute massaging the product into it.

The newest release is from CoLab and I randomly picked up the Tokyo scent. It reminds me of my grandmother’s favourite perfume in a good way, it’s quite sophisticated actually. It has the most invisible formula of the ones here and maybe that’s why I prefer to use it hours before I need to go out. It doesn’t work immediately, I have to spray it on the night before or in the morning, in case I’m going out in the afternoon. But hours later, the hair is refreshed, the scalp is not sticky and I’m curious to try the other scents and the Extreme Volume series, as well. However, if you’re expecting to see results a minute later, you’d be more likely to think you’re using a texturising spray. It gives you texture but not a refresh.

Last but not least, is the Garnier 7-in-1 The Silky Dry Shampoo. The idea of my hair smelling of Vanilla is really putting me off but the scent of this product is not the typical Vanilla one, it’s still quite strong and sweet but also fresh. The claims on the tin are pretty big and I don’t agree with all of them but I still think it’s not the worst dry shampoo that you can try. However, I have to say it’s my least favourite. It refreshes the hair but just not so much as the other ones and sometimes can make it look a bit lifeless and flat.

If I have to pick my most favourite, it would definitely be the Batiste Heavenly Volume Dry Shampoo because it’s a dry shampoo and texturising spray in one (I so want to try their XXL Volume one!). A runner-up would be the Dove Refresh+Care Dry Shampoo.

What’s your favourite dry shampoo?

Empties #5

DSC_0154post DSC_0157postHair:
Balea Professional Pure Volume Shampoo – Can’t wait to get more tubes of this shampoo, I love how light the gel texture of it is, it gives me lots of volume and makes my hair shiny. Really good and affordable product;
Batiste Cherry Dry Shampoo – The cherry fragrance isn’t my favourite from the Batiste range but in terms of refreshing my hair, it’s doing the job very well;
Elseve Total Repair Shampoo – This was a bit too heavy for my hair, I think it would be better for someone with more dry or damaged hair.
DSC_0158post
Body:
Dr Greve Sensitive Shower Cream with Almond Oil and Oats – I’ve mentioned that this product feels like combination of a body milk and a shower cream, it’s really nourishing, I like it a lot and I can find it at the drugstore;
Sanctuary SPA Cleansing Burst Body Wash – It has a very interesting scent and texture with small particles that burst in contact with water and skin, I really enjoyed using it but I have a new favourite Sanctuary SPA range, so I think I’d be sticking to it for the moment;
Roger & Gallet Revitalising Sorbet with Apricot Oil and Aloe Vera – One of my favourite body moisturisers for any time of the year. It’s light but moisturising, it smells amazing and the scent can linger for days on your clothes, it’s such a lovely product;
Palmolive Thermal SPA Shower Gel – Nothing too special but I love the big bottle as I go through body washes like water. Feels fresh, not the first time I’m using it and probably won’t be the last either;
Rituals Fortune Scrub with Organic Mandarin and Yuzu and Rituals Touch of Happiness Sweet Orange and Cedar Wood Body Cream – My boyfriend got these for me in a gift box and I can’t explain how much I liked it. I think Rituals isn’t mentioned enough in the beauty world although they have some great body products. These two products have different but kind of similar scents, they’re fresh but warm at the same time and they are really good. In fact, the whole box was amazing and I think they have some great sets, so that you can try the products and see what you like. Perfect to travel with and gives you the chance to decide what you’d like to purchase in full size;
Kneipp Lemon Shower Cream – You can’t go wrong with Kneipp’s shower creams, they’re gentle to the skin, they nourish it while leaving it clean, I love trying new scents and I’ll keep purchasing them;
Kneipp Figs Milk and Argan Oil Shower Cream – This one was even better than the one above, the way it smells and feels on the skin is amazing;
Soap & Glory Hand Food – I have several scents from the range and I love them all, it’s such a popular and loved product and there is a reason for this. It has great moisturising properties, smells sweet and this big tube lasts a really long time;
Burt’s Bees Hand Salve – Another hand saviour. I’m in love with this product, it’s my winter hand moisturiser in the nights because it feels quite heavy and oily when it melts but it gives such a soothing feeling and hydrates the skin really well.
Faith in Nature Roll-On Crystal Deodorant* – This may not smell very strong but it’s very fresh, doesn’t contain nasty ingredients and it’s suitable for men and women.

DSC_0169postFace and Nails:
Eucerin DermatoCLEAN Micellar Water – I don’t know how many bottles of this I’ve gone through. It’s probably the first micellar water that I’ve tried, it can be used as a toner, as well, it’s suitable even for sensitive skin and I have to get a new one;
ACO Daily Purifying Toner – It’s an affordable exfoliating toner that I was using a couple of times in the week. It didn’t dry out my skin but I have so many similar products at the moment that I don’t think I’d be repurchasing for now;
Clinique Clarifying Lotion for Oily/Combination Skin – A more expensive exfoliating toner that was a little bit more harsh on my skin but if you use it just 2-3 days of the week, it shouldn’t be a problem. I personally prefer this one to the one above because I really saw a difference in my skin condition with it;
BioKarite Anti-Age Eye Cream – As I said before, I didn’t see that this cream was suitable for older skins but this wasn’t a problem for me. It’s very gentle for the eye area, it’s really hydrating and I would definitely re-purchase it. Plus, it’s from the drugstore;
Decleor Hydra Floral Moisturising Cream – A cream for dry skin which I used on my cheeks and neck in the winter and I was really happy with it. Smells amazing and has a thick texture that sinks into the skin without making it greasy;
Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Day Cream – I don’t know how many times I’ve been talking about this product. It’s my favourite moisturiser, it works great on my skin and this was probably my 5th bottle of it;
Garnier Skin Renew Overnight Regenerating Cream (discontinued) – This cream seemed to never sink into the skin, always stayed on the surface without actually doing anything for my face;
La Roche-Posay Effaclar DUO + – Everybody knows this product, it works well on me when my skin is a bit problematic but I’m trying not to use it too often as my skin can get used to it and the effect isn’t so visible after that;
GlamGlow Supermud Clearing Treatment – I did a review on this mask here. I love the product because it makes my skin look very good, removes all the impurities and tightens the pores. However, I wouldn’t re-purchase because it dried out really quickly although I always closed the jar well. The quantity is small and although the product is amazing, it’s just not worth the price tag;
Rimmel Fix & Perfect Primer 002 – I’ve mentioned before that I have mixed feelings towards this product mainly because it promises to mattify the skin but it just doesn’t do it for me;
Maybelline Colossal Go Extreme! Mascara – Not a bad mascara but definitely not my favourite. I can’t wear it all day as I get fallout 3-4 hours after application. Has a big brush and I usually prefer smaller ones, so it wasn’t very comfortable to work with;
Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara – Much better than the one before although the brush isn’t my favourite, once again. However, it gives a lot of volume, it lengthens the lashes and lasts a long time;
OPI Nail Envy for Dry & Brittle Nails – I did a review on this product here. I’m trying to replace it with something else at the moment but it seems to be irreplaceable. Such a good nail care product, it’s pricey, especially in Norway but it keeps my nails in great conditione when I use it.
DSC_0172post

 

Samples and Sachets:
Biotherm Liquid Glow Reviving Oil – Didn’t have very much time to use this, so I can’t say if it’s nice for my skin but it didn’t irritate it and it smelled amazing;
Biotherm Blue Therapy Night Serum-in-Oil – I can say the same about this one too, the amount was just not enough for noticing major difference in my skin condition but my face got very soft with this serum-in-oil. Again, it smelled wonderful;
Origins VitaZing SPF 15 Energy-boosting Moisturiser – I enjoyed using this one although it was a bit orange on me, I could make it work but I don’t think I’d purchase the full size;
Guerlain Baby Glow – It gives you baby glow indeed but for me it was a bit too glowy and even shiny because of my combination skin, so I had to powder more often. That’s the only thing that stops me from purchasing the full size product for now. I loved how it gives a sheer coverage but enough to make you look healthy and fresh, I didn’t even feel it on my skin, it was so lightweight and nice;
Dior Nude Air – The shade that I was given was way too dark for me and the texture was too liquid, so it’s not the easiest foundation to work with. The finish is beautiful but the product doesn’t stay very long on my shiny T-zone and it just disappears in the middle of the day;
Dermica Honey Peel-Off Mask – Looks and smells like honey, this mask made my skin softer and more nourished.

Do you have experience with any of these products?

2014 Favourites

IMG_1478post IMG_1481post

It’s the last day of the year and what better time for writing a post about my favourite products in 2014? I could actually include even more but there are plenty already, so I had to stop myself. Many of the mentioned products were released in previous years but it’s simply what I’ve been loving during this one. I thought it would be better if I form several categories.

IMG_1492post

Lip products

I’ve been using the Maybelline Colour Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencils for just about a month but they had to make it to my annual favourites because the formula is great, the shades are lovely, they fit perfectly to the lip pencils trend at the moment and they are affordable (review here).
One of the autumn launches by Chanel was their Rouge Coco Shine in Confident – a stunning dusty rose shade with creamy texture (review here).
Even though I’m a not a huge lip gloss fan, there is one that everybody including me seems to love and it’s Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in 06 Rosewood Shimmer (review here) because it gives you a slight colour, it’s moisturising and it’s not sticky like most of the lip glosses.
Lip balms have a special place in my heart and Burt’s Bees know how to soothe and hydrate lips. Their Nourishing Lip Balm with Mango Butter was my favourite in 2014 without a doubt.

IMG_1499post

Nail products

There are two nail polishes that I’ve been loving in 2014 – a nude and a vibrant purple one. The first is Essie Sand Tropez (review here) and the second is KIKO Nail Lacquer in 314 Cyclamen.
When it comes to treatment, the big surprise was OPI Nail Envy for Dry & Brittle Nails! I didn’t believe that it could be so amazing but this product made my nails healthier, stronger and there is no sign of the yellow coloured nails after using nail varnishes anymore. Highly recommend (review here).

IMG_1501post

Skincare products

I’m including the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water here because it’s my first step in my evening skincare routine, it removes eye makeup effectively, it’s gentle and affordable.
If I had to choose only one favourite for this year, it would have been without a doubt the Clarins Lotus Face Treatment Oil (review here) because this is the product that balances my combination skin, it has been the reason why my skin never looked better than in 2014 and I can’t say enough good words about it.
Still, at that time of the month, some spots may appear and there are two more products that save the day – a face mask and a spot treatment. Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask (review here) and La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo [+] are these products.

IMG_1507post

Hair and body products

The fragrance that I’ve been mostly using in 2014 is actually a purchase from the previous year but it’s a special one for me. Not only it is feminine and elegant with just a hint of sweetness to it but it always reminds me of a magical trip to London. That’s why I love Lancome‘s La Vie est Belle so much.
To protect my hands I relied on Burt’s Bees Hand Salve, it’s a wonderful product.
This body sorbet by Roger & Gallet (review here) has amazing scent, great hydrating qualities and has been my favourite body moisturiser in 2014.
When it comes to hair Björn Axén and their Strengthening Shampoo did a great job. It makes my hair soft and shiny, smells of apricots and although it’s for fine hair and mine is not, it didn’t make it look and feel bad. More on this shampoo here.

IMG_1511post

Makeup products

It’s interesting how the majority of my favourite makeup products are actually by Bourjois but I have to admit that they’ve had a pretty good year.
However, I’d like to start with the first makeup product that I apply and it actually has skincare qualities as well. It’s the L’Occitane Ultra Matte Fluid and it will keep you shine-free all day long if you have oily or combination skin. That’s the best primer or under primer product, it’s quite pricey and expires 6 months after opening the bottle but so far, I haven’t found anything that works better on my skin.
Next up is the duo Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream and 123 Perfect CC Eye Cream. They are light, you don’t feel them on the skin, look natural but at the same time have pretty good coverage. Review here.
Bourjois Healthy Balance Unifying Powder (review here) has a bit of coverage as well, doesn’t look like powder but keeps your face shine-free and healthy-looking.
The mascara is again by Bourjois partly because it’s a really good mascara, partly because I didn’t try so many different ones in 2014, I was sticking to just several mascaras and just kept repurchasing them during the year. Volume 1 Seconde Mascara does it all although I prefer to separate my lashes with another mascara before applying this one.

These are the products that I’ve been mostly using in 2014, I tried to combine some pricey and more affordable ones, so that everybody can find something for themselves and I hope you liked this post.
I sincerely wish you a great party night and a wonderful new year, may it be a happy one!

Always Having a Backup

IMG_1241post IMG_1246post IMG_1249post

Are you stocking up on your favourite products? Or at least having an extra bottle or tube of an important beauty item?

There are just a few things that I simply can’t have only one of. I’m a little bit scared that I can run out of them and see myself helplessly trying to find a replacement for the moment. As you can see, they are mostly skincare items.

I’ve mentioned too many times that my favourite moisturiser is the Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Hydrating Care because it’s perfect for my combination skin and even if I’m trying another day cream, I always like to have this one around me. It wouldn’t have been a mistake if I included the night cream from the same range in this post. The night moisturiser can’t be found in Norway at all which is even more problematic for me.

Micellar waters have a steady place in our routines nowadays. They remove makeup quickly and can be a really good help in the first step of our skincare rituals. The Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water is an affordable product, comes in a big bottle of 400 ml and does a great job in removing even more stubborn lipstick or mascara. Another one of my favourite micellar waters is the Eucerin DermatoCLEAN 3 in 1 Micellar Cleansing Fluid which can be used as a facial cleanser, eye makeup remover and toner. Usually I take off my makeup, wash my face with a face wash, then use this cleansing fluid to remove what’s left and continue with a second toner. It’s a really gentle cleansing water, it’s perfume-free and it’s suitable for contact lenses wearers like me.

La Roche-Posay’s Effaclar Duo[+] is famous enough but in a few words it’s a great little thing to help unclog pores, fight against marks and reduce imperfections on oily/combination skin. It’s one of my skincare staples and I try to have an extra tube of it all the time.

If you’ve seen this post, you already know how much I love the Lilly Oil-based nail polish remover. It’s probably one of the best nail polish removers out there but it’s unfortunately available in only one drugstore in just several countries. I can’t recommend this product enough, if you have the chance to try it, don’t hesitate!

Last but not least is a product that years ago I haven’t thought I’d use. I just never seemed to know the benefits of applying something like this. Now, I love it so much and I’m trying to always have another tin of it although a little goes a long way. It’s the Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream and I apply it on bare or polished nails, day or night. It’s not only good for your cuticles but for your nails as well. If you haven’t tried it, please correct this and get this little gem, you won’t be disappointed!

Which products you usually stock up on?
