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.
FAVORITE SKIN CARE:
- 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
FAVORITE BODY CARE:
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)
FAVORITE HAIR CARE:
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!

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!

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