Beauty: Most loved and used in August


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!

  1. Ne znam iz kojeg razloga nisi ranije pisala nešto puno beauty postova kada toliko voliš kozmetiku (shame on you) ali dobro... ja nikada nisam bila nešto previše entuzijastična oko iste, bitno da mi očisti i hidratizira kožu, ali s godinama, koža me počela "zezati" pa sam sada stalno u potrazi za zgodnim preparatima...
    Dobru kremu za oči već duže vremena tražim tako da ću ovu Afroditinu svakako probati. Hvala puno!
    Nuxe volim jako... dugo sam koristila i njihove kreme, ali sam odustala kada su krenuli s nekim novim i kakti inovativnim formulama koje mome licu više nisu pasale :(
    Ovo sjajilo je prekrasno i uopće ti ne zamjeram što si pokleknula i uzela ga unatoč tomu što ne voliš sjajila!

    1. Nadam se da će ti pasati ova Afroditina kremica, meni je sasvim slučajno ispala sjajno otkriće i ne mogu je dovoljno nahvaliti :) Joj ovo sjajilo je toliko lijepo da mu nisam mogla odoljeti i baš mi je drago da sam mu dala šansu jer se jako dobro slažemo (naravno, dok bura ne zapuše haha)!

  2. Super da si napisala ovakakv post jer ja obozavam beauty positive posto sam i sama mali skriveni beauty ovisnik! :)
    Za Nuxe vec znas da sam ogroman poklonik, Caudalie beauty elixir isto, Afroditina kozmetika mi je 50-50, nekad mi bas pase a neki proizvodi mi samo izazovu jako losu reakciju a S.fresh me bas interesira i voljela bih probati njihovu liniju proizvoda. :)

    1. Jeeej hvala ti, draga moja! :)
      Meni su Afroditini proizvodi oduvijek super pasali, samo sam previše bila počela eksperimentirati sa različitim brendovima pa sam jedno vrijeme na njih zaboravila, ali mi je ova kremica bila apsolutno otkriće, pogotovo nakon što su me razočarale neke njene puno skuplje i razvikanije kolegice :D

  3. volim Afroditine proizvode, godinama koristim njihove kreme za lice i šampone, ali eto na ovu kremu za područje očiju nisam nabasala...sada ću je sigurno potražiti jer bi mi baš dobro došla neka takva krema.

    Gdje se S. Fresh može nabaviti?

    Ovo Max Factor sjajilo za usne super izgleda, ova mi se nijansa baš čini odličnom. Ni ja baš ne koristim često sjajila za usne (možda baš zbog kose i vjetra), najčešće odabirem olovke ali nekad dobar lipgloss zlata vrijedi.

    1. I ja volim Afroditine proizvode, mislim da ih koristim već skoro deset godina i super mi pašu, a ova kremica mi je malo otkriće, doslovno nikad nisam bila zadovoljnija.

      Ja sam S.Fresh uzela u DM-u, a mislim da ga imaju i u Farmaciji no također se može kupiti i online, na njihovoj stranici samo jučer nije radila kad ja pisala post, možda nešto preuređuju.

    2. ja sam danas bila u CM-u, nisam našla ovu Afroditinu kremicu ali sam kupila njihovo bademovo ulje za skidanje šminke, mislim da će mi dobro poslužiti. Potražit ću S. Fresh u DM-u.

      Koji ti program koristiš za prebacivanje slika s kompjutera na instagram? Ja sam imala onaj neki blue nešto pa sam ga izbrisala jer nije radio dobro, ako imaš neki za preporučiti javi.

      Delete
    3. E javi mi kakvo je ulje za skidanje šminke, moram si uzeti nešto novo, a još nisam odlučila što točno :)

      Ja ti sve fotke i za blog i za Instagram prebacim na svoj Flickr account i onda ih preko njihove aplikacije skinem na mobitel i samo otvorim u Instagramu, već godinama radi savršeno i prezadovoljna sam :)

    4. ulje sam isprobala ali samo za čišćenje kože jer se danas nisam šminkala, no čini mi se dobro, mislim da će dobro poslužiti i za skidanje šminke.

  5. E baš sam uživala u postu i u divotama koje sam vidjela ♥. Nuxe i Caudalie su mi odlični brendovi i s njima se ne može puno pogriješiti. Caudalie detox oli planiram uzet na jesen, odnosno kad malo zahladi te se nadam da će mi odgovarati, a da je dobro znam jer ga djevojke obožavaju. Afrodita okoloočnu kremicu nisam probala, ali sam imala koncentrat iz iste linije koji mi je savršen te ga koristim nekoliko ljeta uzastopno te si me baš zainteresirala za ovu okoloočnu kremicu koju ću probati jer hidratacije nikad dosta :D

    1. Puno ti hvala, baš mi je drago da ti se svidio post! <3 Ja sam Caudalie detox oil prvi put uzela prošlo ljeto, jako dugo traje i lice mi je već na prvu na njega sjajno reagiralo i ljubav još uvijek traje! A ova Afroditina kremica me totalno oduševila tako da sad namjeravam isprobati i ostale proizvode iz iste linije, baš me zanima kakav će rezultat biti iako me njihove kreme (i općenito svi ostali proizvodi) nikad nisu razočarali :D Nadam se da će i tebi pasati okoloočna krema, držim fige! :)

  9. Ja ti isto obožavam kozmetiku ali nekako nemam inspiraciju da se bavim njom ovako šire iako bih volela. Eventualno nešto završi na IG i to je to :D U svakom slučaju, ja podržavam i ideju o ovakvim postovima koji ti takođe leže ;) Nuxe i Caudalie, šta reći osim da ih obožavam u svim varijantama koje sam probala do sada. Imamo i isti narandžasti lak :)
