2014 Beauty Favourites: Skincare
After fighting myself a lot while trying to reduce this list to the maximum, I still wound up with a whopping... 27 products! So I divided these in two parts: skincare and everything else! (You can see how nuts I am about skincare, right?)
So I bring you the group of products that rocked me this year, some of which I've already spoken of, some of which I will soon, for sure:
- Bioderma's micellar water for dry and dehydrated skin types Hydrabio H2O - not much more to add, it's more comfortable than the Sensibio and I love it
- May Lindstrom's The Honey Mud Cleansing Silk - this is paradise in a cleanser; I love it and cannot stop recommending it, even though the pricetag is quite hefty
- Emma Hardie's Amazing Face Moringa Cleansing Balm - the review of this product will be coming soon but it was love at first use: skin is fresh but comfortable and nourished, no stinging or drying and the double-sided cloth is actually amazing, the softer part is the fluffiest thing ever
- The Konjac Sponge Co.'s Konjac sponge - this one is the red clay one because it's the one I'm using now, but, if you read the review, I've tried others and they're all amazing, I can't live without them anymore, your skin will be baby-soft and super clean
- Yüli Skincare's lip conditioner - not, it's not a regular lip balm or chapstick, it's a lip conditioner in oil form that really nourishes the lips, I'm head over heels, always apply it before bed, before the actual lip balm
- Nuxe's Rêve de Miel lip balm - well, this is the lip balm I apply at night and it deserves all the credit of the hype (it won't really heal really bad chapped skin, but it does hydrate and nourish deeply)
- LUSH's Oatifix fresh mask - oh this review can't come any sooner, this is definitely the BEST mask for dry and dehydrated skin types I've ever tried and I believe it even helps my acne, LOVE!
- Tammy Fender's Intensive Repair Balm - Nothing to add, love it!
- Odacité's Hyperpigmentation Booster Pa + G - I love this, gotta review it; they have a tons of oils for all skin concerns - dying to try more
- Sisley's All Day All Year (anti-aging cream and daily protector against UVA/UVB)* - I've only ever experimented two samples of this (so 20ml) and that's why I haven't fully reviewed it but this is amazing, would love to try a full-size!
- Sesderma's Hidraderm Hyal Cream - This brand has been a real surprise and I love this cream, it's not super duper nourishing but it's charged with hyaluronic acid so it's reallyyyyy hydrating
- Sesderma's Kojicol Plus anti-spot gel - this gel, paired with the Odacité oil, has been doing miracles for my acne spots, gotta review it as well
- Guinot's Gentle Eye Cleansing Gel - now I thought I loved Lierac's Dioptidemaq and I was so sad when they discontinued it, but I'm glad they did because I went on a hunt for a new gel-textured eye make up remover and found this wonder - have been using it for over 2 months and, in that period, only two, TWO, eyelashes have fallen out while removing makeup (before I could count on at least one leaving me). I noticed the difference in my lash line in the first month, can't live without!
- Sisley's Black Rose Mask e Facial Oil* - yes, yes, yes, everything that's good in the world when you need luminosity and hydration, review will be up soon
