July Favorites and discoveries

Hi everyone !

Today I am going to talk about you my favorite products and discoveries of July.

This month I have been using quite a lot of products, and I just wanted to pick up my favorite and my newest ones for that article.

  • Skin care products

I use since about 2 weeks the Ultra-Moisturizing Body Milk from Topicrem, I like to try new body milks, and I use them twice a day.

Since I’ve been using a lot Korres, and Nuxe, I wanted to try another drug store brand. The texture of that one is a bit thick (it’s for sensitive and dry skin) so it takes some time to dry : with Korres and Nuxe, I could apply a normal amount of body milk, the skin absorbed it very fast ! But with that one, just a little bit is enough, so I use it only once a day (at night). The smell is nice : it smells a bit of baby powder. I will probably buy it again in winter, because it’s a time when I prefer to use thicker creams.

I had some blemishes these past months, I wanted to find a solution to reduce the redness of my cheeks, also, I love to use everyday an anti-ageing cream for my eyes, so I bought (still in a drug store) several creams for my special needs :

The first cream is from Algotherm, it’s an anti blemish and intensive corrector that reduces redness. It’s an anti-bacterial transparent fluid (it has salicylic acid) with seaweed extracts to balance sebaceous secretions. I used it for several weeks and I still have lots of product inside. It worked on me but it took time to be effective. The smell may be a bit strange the first time we use it : it smells of tree, but we soon get rid of if. It’s fresh and doesn’t dry the skin. I would recommend it for people who don’t have a sever skin problem (I believe in such a case it’s much better to ask to a dermatologist).

The second cream is an eye and lip anti ageing cream. It’s about a month I am using it, morning and night too. It’s a repairing cream that helps to reduce wrinkles and dark circles. This cream is made of natural placenta (from the nutrients contained in plants). I use a small amount each time : the size of a rice seed for both eyes. I really like that product, it works very well on me. I will definitely buy it again.

Then, I use La Roche Posay corrective unclogging care Effaclar duo + & the physiological soothing toner. It was one of my first article on that blog, I just started to use both a few weeks ago.

Well, the cream is really nice and works perfectly on the blemishes, I use it only when I have some and it definitely works well ! The toner is amazing, I am now using my second bottle and I think to buy some other bottles in advance, I like to use it everyday, it’s very refreshing and leaves the skin very soft.

All of these products are paraben free, and they are suitable for very sensitive skins.

  • Make up

Most of the things here I already talked about them.

First thing I use every time I wear make up is my eye primer from Kiko. I already talked about it but I really think it’s a great product : the make up stays all day long !

Then, I started to use a few days ago the eyebrow palette from Make Up Revolution. I wasn’t so convinced about it when I first used it, but now I love it ! How could I wear make up all this time without this ?!

Next, I won’t review it anymore (because lately I keep talking and talking about this brand) : my Coastal Scents palette. I use it every day now and I am just loving it ! It just proves that we don’t need to buy expensive make up when we can have amazing one like this ! (I also bought yesterday another palette from them, I am so impatient to receive it !)

More over, I use (not every day, but every time I change my nail lacquer) a cuticle oil from Maybeline. It’s something great, I have never thought of using one before, and I really recommend to anyone to use a product like that because it worth to try !

  • Hair care

Finally the last product : a few months ago as I bought a few stuffs on Feelunique, I received a free sample from the brand Aveda. I’ve never heard of it before that but I decided to give it a try and see how it works on me. I have long hair so I thought this tiny sample wouldn’t be enough for my hair length… Well, I was deeply WRONG ! I used it (seriously) about 6 or 7 times already, and I LOVE IT !!  (I still have a little bit left but I don’t want to finish it soon…). The results were just incredible, my hair was really soft, the curls were very well defined and I didn’t need to do anything else because just this product was enough to set my hair. I will get this product soon !!

Trying a new skin care from La Roche Posay

I have a very sensitive skin, I always had some problems to find cosmetics that won’t give me allergies or blemishes.

Last week I decided to try for a month 2 products from La Roche Posay :

The Physiological soothing toner & the corrective unclogging care Effaclar duo +

I have been using these products since a week already, I will keep using them all this month and see if it works well on me or if I should try something different, then after that I will give a final review …

I can already say that I like the effects on the short term … my skin is refreshed and the few blemishes I had are almost gone.

Have you ever tried one of these ? What do you think about them ?
