I decided to start posting a few non polish related posts a month simply because my life has gotten a bit crazy which means less time for nails. I could just swatch over the weekend but I'm not a swatcher, I only show you manis that I actually wear. My nails are pretty healthy and I normally remove nail polish every three days, not out of need but out of boredom. Nowadays are more hectic and sometimes I just wanna leave nail polish on for five or more days and then I'd have a problem trying to post just nails twice a week. Fear not, this will still be a nail themed blog. Now that we cleared that out, let's check my favorite products :)
Diamond Collection Sweet Love Body Lotion Sweet Cherry Blossom and Peach: I bought this in the Summer but it took me a while to start using it. Initially I bought it because I adore anything peach scented. This however smells nothing like peaches, it's more of a floral scent. What I love about it is how moisturizing it is and how quickly it sinks into my skin. Even thought it's not a super strong, aggressive scent I can still smell it on my skin throughout the day.
Muller Jojoba Oil: This has been my savior for the past month. I've been using it on my face as a part of my night routine, for any random dry patches, knees and elbows. I poured some into a clean polish bottle and used it as nail and cuticle oil. I got mine at Muller for around 8 € and it's gonna last me a few more months.
Givenchy Very Irresistible: I'm on a mission to use up a few of my older perfumes. Givenchy Very irresistible has been around since I was in high school so I have no clue how it hasn't went bad. Very irresistible is a great everyday, clean scent with notes of rose and anise, very floral but fresh at the same time. It really took me back to my younger years and it will feel quite weird to finish it.
Freedom Pro 12 Stunning Smokes Palette: I have started testing this palette at the end of September and then it just stuck with me for this whole month. The matte shadows are so creamy and easy to work with. A full review coming soon :)
Catrice Flushed Fiction Powder Blush: You've probably seen this little guy all over the blogosphere this month. I admit Mateja made me buy it. Flushed fiction was a part of their Lumination limited edition. It's a dusty rose blush with a decent sized shimmer that still doesn't make you look like a disco bomb. My only complaint is, that it contains carmine (I actually feel bad about buying it but I was in a hurry and I wasn't paying attention to the ingredients). C'mon Cosnova, it's 2015 and I'm sure you can do better than that.
Essence Pretty you! Lip Balm: The second product you've probably seen around is Essence Pretty You! Lip Balm from their Happy Girls are Pretty TE. This has been my go to lip shade this month and even thought it's supposed to be a lip balm, the pigmentation is good. It has a great moisturizing formula and the pinkish brown shade could suit different skin tones.
Essence the Gel Nail Polish Top Coat: My new holy grail top coat. It dries instantly, doesn't shrink my polish and provides a nice glossy finish. What I don't like is the non see through bottles but I can live with that.
Kiss Maximum Speed Nail Glue: I had a small break/tear on one of my nails and Kiss nail glue held it together very well (I usually go for nail glue tea bag method). Later I rammed my hand into the wall and totally messed up another nail so I had to shorten them all. Still, if you ever need nail glue Kiss is very affordable and works great.
Badger Pink Grapefruit Lip Balm: With colder months my lips start to get chapped. Badger Pink grapefruit has been my savior, I've been applying it before bed and in the morning my lips are ready for the day.
Natur Aktiv Sweet Chai: I have a nice tea collection at home but I keep buying new ones :) This month I've been obsessed with Hofer brand Sweet Chai. It tastes amazing on its own or with a dash of milk.
