Happy Monday, guys!
Today finally feels like autumn and I'm really happy about it, this morning I actually had to wear my sweatshirt while walking Frida and I'm not even gonna try to hide how much I enjoyed it after such a long time.
But before we proceed to beauty talk, let's just take a minute to celebrate the most awesome wildlife news that came in today: The giant PANDA is no longer endangered species, they have been upgraded to vulnerable and I'm so extremely happy about it.
So today I wanted to share some of my favourite beauty products used throught August but some of them have actually been my long time favourites and could easily make it to the top 5 each month of the year. If you're a regular around here, then you're quite aware that beauty posts haven't actually been a thing of mine which kinda makes me sad because I love love love them and beauty shopping is actually my favourite kind of shopping, right after the always amazing hunt for sunglasses.
But more on that topic sometime soon, because I have a lot to say on the subject of not letting myself write more about all the things I love for the sake of...actually nothing in the end.
Lesson that can be learned from my silly experience: don't let anyone's opinion affect your blog, style and writing. Do what you love and not just a part of things you love.
So here they are, the fab crew of this summer:
* Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse oils
* Nuxe Bio Beaute BB cream
* Nuxe Creme Fraiche light
* Caudalie Beauty Elixir
* Caudalie Overnight Detox Oil
* La Roche - Posay Anthelios 50spf
* Afrodita Hydra Thermal eye cream
* S.Fresh Apricot Cheeks natural face polish
* Maybelline Color Show nail polishes in 654 superpower blue and 341 orange attack
* Maybelline Colordrama lip pencils in 410 fab orange and 520 light it up
* Max Factor lipgloss in 55 dazzling fuchsia
I'm not goona write a detailed impression of each product because this would be the longest post ever, but if you're interested in one of these, let me know in the comments section so I can prepare a post dedicated only to a certain product you'd like to know more about.
It's no secret that Nuxe products are one of my personal favourites but my number one love are their super famous oils which never leave my side. I've been using them for a very long time and I absolutely love the way they feel on my skin and how good they smell. The shimmery one is my little must have for summer days but during winter I always add a bit of it to my foundation which gives such a nice and healthy glow to my always pale skin.
S.Fresh is a croatian brand I discovered through Instagram. I kept seeing so many posts about their products and how other bloggers love them so one day I finally decided to give them a try. And this face wash instantly became one of the essential products in my weekly routine. It smells amazing and leaves my skin feeling super clean, soft and hydrated. I'm definitely buying it again.
I bought these Maybelline nail polishes a few weeks ago because their vibrant shades were love at first sight and together with the brand's lip pencils they make a perfect bright summer combination.
Max Factor lipgloss is something that surprisingly made its way into this list because I'm usually not into lipglosses beacuse of their well-known bad relationship with long hair and windy days but this summer I decided to give them another chance, don't even know why. Probably because this shade is so beautiful and I had to give it a try. And I actually took it everywhere with me and was super satisfied.
Caudalie Beauty Elixir is something I actually can't live without, ever since accidentally discovering it amongst my mum's things months ago when we went to Zagreb and bought my own bottle the very next day. And their Overnight Detox Oil is my favourite part of nightime routine, it has quite an intense smell which I didn't like at first, but my skin loves this product so much and ever since I started using it (last summer to be exact!), my mornings don't resemble a zombie movie.
Afrodita eye cream turned out to be my favourite eye cream ever, beating Nuxe, L'Occitane and Clinique and making its way to the top. I've just started using it a few weeks ago but it was clear from the very beginning that this little blue thing is a definite keeper.
La Roche - Posay tinted cream with spf 50 was and still is my face's saviour this summer from the crazy hot days. I love literally everything about it - the creamy, matte formula and how light it feels on my face.
And it looks like we've made it to the end of the list, congrats!
Now tell me, have you tried any of these products and how do you like them?
Wishing you a great week ahead!
