February Favourites

This month I've discovered a couple of gems that are relatively new to my collection but I've also come back to using some oldies that might have started collecting dust since I've last used them.

NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Usage Dry Oil

Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Usage Dry Oil is a light-golden dry oil made of plant oils and Vitamin E. Marking a product as a dry oil simply implies that it has a lightweight and non-greasy texture and is quickly absorbed into the skin. Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Dry Oil contains a blend of six plant oils (borage, St. Johnswort, camellia, hazelnut, sweet almond and macadamia) and vitamin E, all of which nourish, repair, soften and hydrate the skin. I've been using mine in a variety of ways, on my face, body and hair, as the name suggests.

LUSH Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter

Lemony Flutter from Lush is a thick buttery cuticle cream. I've used up a whole pot in the past and I picked up another one a couple of months ago because my cuticles often get extremely dry and cracked in the winter time. I always forget to wear gloves when I'm outside and dry cuticles are an unwanted consequence. This butter is one of a kind in its effectiveness, when it comes to combating and healing dry skin.

NARS Audacious Lipsticks in Anita & Raquel

I have a love/hate relationship with my NARS Audacious Lipsticks. I picked up two shades soon after they were initially released and it took me a while to write this. These lipsticks were so hyped up at the time and if your lips are normal you will probably love the formula, but since mine tend to get really dry I had some trouble understanding how everyone was so obsessed with them.

COSRX Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask

In the past year I've been dabbling into Korean skincare and finally have a first product to share with you. I've already mentioned the Cosrx Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask in my 2015 skincare favourites but today I'll be sharing more about my experience with it. I first started using it last October and I'm very close to finishing the jar and have already ordered another one, which is a testament to how much I like it.

Urban Decay Naked2 Basics Eyeshadow Palette

Urban Decay makes one of my favourite eyeshadow formulas. They come out with an overwhelming amount of new palettes each year, but I’m not one to wear too much color on my eyes, so I tend to stick with neutral browns and taupe eyeshadows. A range of matte eyeshadows is rarely included in all-in-one palettes and that's where the Naked Basics palettes come in. I have both versions they’ve released so far and like them a lot. I have a review for the Naked2 Basics Eyeshadow Palette ready today, but going back through my older posts I also realized I don’t have one written for the Naked Basics palette yet, so that one should be coming your way soon as well.

Bourjois Colorband Eyeshadow & Liner (02 Brun Dadaiste & 03 Beige Minimaliste)

These eyeshadows/eyeliners from Bourjois were released about a year ago and are their take on creamy eyeshadows in pencil form. Such products are in general really convenient to use, great to take with you on the go or for travelling, and don't require too much skill to apply or using other products to looks good. Let's see if these also perform as such.

Afrodita HYDRA THERMAL Hydra Active Concentrate - Serum

I feel like I’ve figured out a pretty well-working skin care routine for me at the moment, so I’ll be sharing more reviews for products that I’m currently using. Since having an awful reaction to a local skincare line back in elementary school I’ve stayed away from these brands until about a year ago, when I thought it was about time to try some of their products again. Especially Afrodita Cosmetics seems to be pretty on trend when it comes to their line and if you browse through their website you’ll discover they also have AHA and BHA peels available for a reasonable price (which aren’t so readily available on our market yet). Today I thought I’d share my thoughts for their Hydra Thermal Concentrate aka serum from their hydrating line. I’ve started using it last fall and I’l currently on my second bottle so I feel like I’ve used it long enough to form an opinion about it.
