June Favourites

I can't believe that half of 2016 has practically gone by already. This favourites post doesn't include too many summery products (check my post about Summer Essentials for that) but they are none the less products I've been reaching for the most.

JASON Brightening Apricot Scrubble

Although I've mostly switched to using chemical exfoliants and facial cloths to take care of exfoliation I still like to use a normal scrub about once weekly, especially before applying deep cleansing masks. I've been using the Jason Brightening Apricot Scrubble for the longest time and I really like how gentle but still effective it is.

L'Occitane Lavender Hand Cream

I was running out of my L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream so I thought I would switch it up and get the Lavender version next instead. My hands tend to get pretty dry so I have a hand cream or two around me at all times - on my desk, in my purse, on the nightstand, and reapply them often. I like more nourishing treatments for nighttime use, but during the day I much prefer lighter formulas that sink in quickly and don't leave a greasy layer on the skin.

Summer Essentials 2016

Now that summer is officially here I thought I would write a post about some products that I consider essential or at least useful to have around for this time of the year. I've included links to previous reviews, where applicable, in case you would like to read more about any mentioned products.

Caudalie Grape Water Toner Mist

As the warmer days get closer and closer my favourite skin care items become mists. I've repurchased the Caudalie Grape Water Mist a couple times before and have been using my latest one for about a month, so it's only fair it gets its own review.

GLAMGLOW Supermud™ Clearing Treatment Mask

I'm sure you're all familiar with the brand Glamglow and their skincare products. They are quite a splurge but promise visible results, which I can attest to. A while back I was using their Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment Mask, but even though I liked it a lot at the beginning, I didn't find it clearing enough for my skin and felt like it was more a product to fight signs of aging. I then tried a sample of their Supermud Clearing Treatment Mask and basically loved it so much I bought the full size after just one use.

NUDESTIX Magnetic Eye Color in 'Gilt'

It's no secret that I love creamy eyeshadows in a pencil form. They are super simple to apply and very travel friendly and I have a variety from different brands in my collection. The latest addition is the Nudestix Magnetic Eye Color in the shade Gilt.

Essie Apricot Cuticle Oil

Particularly in winter time my cuticles and hands in general get quite dry, so I always keep a nourishing hand cream with me. But those are often not nourishing enough for my cuticles so I usually have a separate product for them. Now that it's warmer outside the situation is a lot better, but I still like to apply a targeted product to my cuticles and a while back I purchased the Essie Apricot Cuticle Oil, hoping it would help with skin around my nails and stop it from getting chapped.

L'Oréal Paris Telescopic Clean Definition Mascara

It's been years since I've last tried a L'Oreal mascara, mostly because their stands in our drugstores seem to have been stuck in the past. In general I like mascaras that add a decent amount of volume as well as length and manage to stay on the lashes for the entire day without flaking or smudging.

the Balm Sexy Mama Anti-Shine Translucent Powder

Besides mascaras and concealers, I also go through a lot of powders. I always set my foundation and concealer to prevent the skin from getting oily too quickly and products disappearing from it. I've been using the Balm's Sexy Mama Anti-Shine Translucent Powder for a couple months now and it's definitely one of the better ones I've used so far - but still not 'the one'.

Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette

I bought this palette a while ago and in the past two months it's been pretty much the only thing I've been using for my eye looks, as you might have noticed in my last favourites post and on Instagram. I generally prefer warmer shades so I was a little worried I might only end up liking that quad, but it turns out all the shades are really wearable. Even though I already have a lot of matte eyeshadow palettes this one comes in as one of the best in my collection and easily fits right next to the quality of Urban Decay's Naked/Naked2 Basics Palettes, only with more variety.
