May Favourites


I wanted to mention a couple of my new favourites that I've been using lately. Some of these have made an appearance before but some are very newly loved.
NIVEA Cocoa & Macadamia Oil Oil in Lotion - this has a lovely thin consistency and a subtle scent that feels more floral to me than having anything to do with cocoa or chocolate. Still, it sinks in really fast and leaves the skin feeling soft. I find it hydrating enough for right now, but I don't think it would be rich enough for colder months (my legs tend to be really dry and this one seems to be doing it's job ok for now).
Balea Face Cleanser - I kept seeing this cleanser being recommended by Mateja, so I decided to pick it up and it's surprisingly really great for the price. It has a transparent gel texture which doesn't foam up all that much, but cleanses the skin gently and effectively. My skin is left feeling clean and soft. A total winner in my book, it's only a little heavy on the scent.
Bioré UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence - after using up the Watery Gel sunscreen by the same brand I switched up to this essence (the version before reformulation) and I seem to love it even more. I feel like the finish it leaves is even closer to invisible (as far as invisible as a sunscreen can look and feel on the skin), and acts as a primer for makeup. It doesn't leave a white cast, needs about 10 minutes to dry down and doesn't break me out. Right now I really can't imagine using a better sunscreen.
Dr. Jart+ Dis-a-Pore BB Cream - I started reaching after this BB cream again recently and really like it. It looks natural on the skin, helps minimize the look of pores, contains SPF and has a decent amount of coverage. Still, I don't remember it holding up the best during the summer, so I'll have to rummage through my drawers and find something else soon.
The Body Shop The Oils of Life Intensely Revitalising Lotion Essence - this was a pretty recent discovery (the brand is now finally available in Slovenia!) and so far I've been loving it a lot. The texture feels something like a thicker toner and after using it, my skin feels incredibly soft, smooth and plump. I'm very intrigued and interested in trying out more items from this line of skincare.
Catrice Kaviar Gauche Éclat D'Or Highlighter - I only got this highlighter when the hype around it died down a bit, but I totally understand why everyone was raving about it. Normally I'm not too phased by highlighters, but this one turned me into a 'believer'. First of all, the size is huge and I can't imagine ever using up the whole thing. Second, the shade is really beautiful and adds such a pretty glow to the skin, so I keep reaching for it. If you can still find it anywhere, you won't regret it.

What are some products you've been loving lately?

  1. Nivea Oil in Lotion imam v drugem vonju, ampak je tudi v mojih majskih favoritih. Na sploh so mi njihovi losijoni zelo všeč po teksturi. Hitro se vpijejo, ampak so dovolj negovalni. :)

    Balea cleanser imam tudi. Mateja nas je vse prepričala :D. Se strinjam s tabo, bi lahko bil vonj boljši ali vsaj manj močan. Catrice osvetljevalec je pa top. Jaz sem ga kar malo pozabila, si me zdaj spomnila nanj. Vreden vsega denarja :).

    1. Že dolgo nisem imela nobenega Nivea izdelka za telo, tale me je pa kr prepričal. Vonj s češnjevim cvetom je še boljši :) Sem jih vidla tudi pri tebi že večkrat omenjene.

      Balein cleanser je top, sem tistega od First Aid Beauty kr postavila na stran in malo pozabila nanj. Upam da bo tudi novejša različica ok :)

      Catrice highlighter sem res pri vseh videla omenjen, ampak nisem bila prepričana, če bo tudi meni tako všeč, ampak sem bila zelo pozitivno presenečena na koncu :)

  2. Balein gel je odličen, so pa pred kratkim menjali embalažo in sestavine, tako da čakam, da pride k nam ta nov in ga sprobam :) Upam, da so spremenili tudi vonj, čeprav sem se ga že navadila.

    Biore sončne kreme so top :). Uporabljam gel vsak dan, ne opazim pa razlike med gelom in esssence verzijo na moji koži.

    Catrice highlighter je izjemen, trenutno moj daleč najljubši :). Catrice mora tole formulo dat v redno prodajo in jo dejansko obdržat, ne pa zamenjat po pol leta.

    TBS-jeva esence se dobro sliši. Olje iz te linije mi je odlično, prav neverjetno lepo kožo mi naredi, pa še tester mi je zdržal zelo dolgo. Moram porabit Nuxe, potem ga bom pa verjetno kupila, pa morda prezkusila še tole essenco :)

    1. Se veselim nove različice cleanserja, upam da bo še vedno ok. Zdaj dobimo v bližino trgovino dm in se ne bo treba več 1h vozit, pa bom lahko večkrat preverila kake novosti od Balee.

      Pri meni je opazna razlika glede Biore krem, esenca se veliko bolj elegantno vpije, tudi če je nanesem veliko. Me zelo mika da kar naročim preformulirano novejšo različico, da sama vidim, če je res tako zelo opazna razlika na slabše..

      TBS esenca bi ti bila pomoje všeč. Mene tudi še par njihovih izdelkov iz te linije zanima. Itak naj bi se kmalu še fizična trgovina odprla pri nas pa bo takrat lažje kak testerček dobit ali pa vsaj v živo sprobat na koži in povonjat vse body butterje :)
