Best Beauty Products 2016. Skincare, Body, Perfume, Hair & Lips!

Hello beauties!

I hope you are having an amazing start to the new 2017!

Now it's time to take a look back at some favorite products that followed our beauty routines through 2016.

Surely some were new, exciting discoveries and some were "oldie but goodie" products that are so amazingly great that we stick to them throughout the years!

In this post, I'm going to share with you my favorite beauty products of 2016: I divided them into categories (Skin Care, Body, Perfume, Hair & Lips).

I also filmed a video about this topic, showing you all the products and  giving you my quick recommendations (why I loved them so much!)

The makeup part is coming up soon! As I do have tons of great products to share, I prefered separating these two topics, otherwise you'd have a hour long video!

So, let's start with the award winning products of 2016.


- Roberts Rose Water

- Clinique & Shiseido Ibuki Overnight Beauty Sleeping Masks (review here)

- Shiseido Benefiance Pure Retinol Instant Treatment Eye Mask

Also, I re-discovered Caudalie skincare products! I used to use them a few years ago, but then I started testing out other brands. Towards the end of this year, I went back to Caudalie, and besides some old favorites, I discovered some new holy grails too!

These products are amazing for hydrating and pampering my skin!

- Caudalie Beauty Elixir

- Caudalie Moisturizing Mask

- Caudalie Vinosource Intense Moisture Rescue Cream


The two products that stood out to me the most were this amazingly delicious chocolate scented body butter wash by Palmolive and Natural Almond Oil (great during pregnancy for keeping the skin's elasticity and preventing stretchmarks)


I have quite a few products to mention! As you guys know, I'm a huge fan of hair care products and throughout 2016, I tested out quite a few!

These were some of the top ones that I'll keep using in 2017 and probably for many more years to come!

- Kerastase Ciment Thermique Resurfacing Strengthening Milk (review here)

- L'Oreal Elnett Satin Hairspray

- Batiste Dry Shampoo

- Schwarzkopf Gliss Hair Detanglers (leave in spray)

- Kerastase Elixir K Ultime Oil

- Macadamia Natural Oil Healing Oil Spray

- Moroccan Oil


Not only the best of 2016, but these are some of my all time favorites! Wearing these scents can make me feel more confident or brighten up my day!

- Thierry Mugler Angel

- Chanel Coco Mademoiselle

- Burberry Body

- Gucci Flora


Let's not forget lip products as they play such an important role in my beauty routine!

Here are my top 3 must haves for beautiful lips:

- Nuxe Ultra Nourishing Lip Balm

- Lush Lip Scrub Mint Julips

- Lucas Papaw Ointment

Those were my top 2016 beauty products that made my beauty routine more pleasurable!

I'd like you to share with me your holy grails of 2016!!! Leave a comment, what your new discoveries and which products have you stuck with throughout the years?
