#6: The Body Shop: Camomile Sustuos Cleansing Butter is  keeping for my 2018 list, beacuse that melting cleanser was really changing my routine and took towards to more sustainable way of thinking + the metal packaging I am keeping for my ‘naked’ products.

December haul

Hi lovelies,

Let’s go back to 2019 for a bit I was nearly forgetting my end of the year and it is my last haul of last year, which will be based on my Christmas gifts and some end of the year sales. You might read that I want to change a bit of my speding habits, eventhought it will be a bit more because of the Chritmas, but I was into to investment pieces:

You might remember my Christmas wishlist, so firstly let me tell you what I have received from it:

So that was the wallett, the Hourglass Ghost Ambient Lightening palette and the silk Intimissimi bra and slip. I have also mentioning that I wish to have a brown leather belt and a hair curler, so these are what I have received:

And a beautiful Kazar belt:

0D64ABF1-9068-4847-BC69-8652DF97DB98

On the top I have received Smashbox Buildable check brush and a Photo Finish Minimize Pores primer, which are both excellent products but I was always considered to be too expensive to buy for myself.

I also receive a cute calendar, a Mamakin necklance, a book and some chocolates, which I am all happy and greatful with.

Last beauty orders of 2019:

Feelunique: 15% if you click on the link

I have repurchased my holy grail from The Ordinary Hyralonic Acid and the Niaciamide serum. Lumene Micellar water is seem like a great Cruelty free alternative of Bioderma, I hope I will love it. Rose Quartz Roller I was eying for a while and now I was thinking of ordering it in order to improve my skincare routine.

The very last day of the year we went to shopping with my bestie and I was so good, only choosing one products to buy on the sales: Tommy Hilfiger Fran skirt. It is a pricier corduroy A-line skirt in navy blue, but it is BCI certificate. It was also sometihng which I was looking for a while. That is an ideal warm winter skirt for me. That is still reflect to my 2020 plans.

Thsi year the Hauls and updates will be on last day of each months.

Ultimate skin care update

Hi lovelies,

I just want to share my skincare routine update with you. I did some reseaches and read, test a lot ect. because skincare is more important than make up and it is time to start invest. in it.

I just have find this small skin care menu list at Byrdie‘s, which is quite good base to create the ultimate skin care routine. All of the products that I mention will be cruelty free as my previous one was included Bioderma which is not. I have read the suggestions of cultbeauty and skinsmart representatives too. There will be products, which I use for a long time, other are just new.

My Skin tend to be combination, but also sensitive and sometimes really dry. Yes, it will seems that I do use a lot of products, so not all of them are in my everyday routine.

Cleansing gel: Lixir- Electrogel Cleanser: honestly I only use cleansing gel in the evenings, I do not have time in the morning for these, so the electrogel is just for me, really smooth and smells nice and it is also a detoxifying mask. For morning fresh up and makeup removing I also use Micellar water, I loved the Bioderma pink one for so long, but then for CF reasons,I have started to use The Body Shop Camomile Fresh -Micellar Cleansing Water.

Toner: Pixi- Glow Tonic: I used to use a toner back to my teenager years, I was too lazy for ages maybe, for a month now just using the Glow Tonic, which has changed my skin so well- bright and glowing.

Lightweight moisturizer: Lixir- Universal Emulsion or The Body Shop- Vitamin E. The last one I just adore for so long time so lightweight and water based which I love, but too many perfume (even no irritation), but during winter time I feel I need some more, so just trying the first one, which works well so far.

Eye cream: I have not find my love yet, but I do have a lots of okay in this category… Currently using: Naturschön: Augencreme, which is a vegan, olive based cream. Really need to find on which is not is a jar, might be the Drunk Elephant? What do you think?

Zinc oxide sunscreen: honestly I am only using SPF in the BB cream, yes I have to find something…

AHA/BHA serum: Geek&Gorgeous Calm Down(PHA+ BHA liquid) is my big love, so I tend to repurchase it, but now I will give a try to my gifted Lixir: Night Switch PHA/AHA 10%

Retinol serum: The Ordinary: Granactive Retionoid 2% emulsion my first ever retinol, I am just thinking of starting it in my 20s must not hurt, so I will not use this light version everyday until my 30s… (2 nights per week)

Serum: The Ordinary: Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% really good serum for oily- oily combined skin, even it is written use it both in morning and evening, I only use it at night if I skipp the retinol.

Clay mask: The Body Shop- Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask is my other old friend, even thought I use rarely use it… and sometimes I do use sheet mask, like the Holika Holika: Juicy Mask Sheet for some extra hydration.

tbshimalaya

Face oil: I am not really into it, as I was always afraid of these products makes my skin oily, so I only have a small The Body Shop: Tea Tree Oil and a L’Occitane: Face Comforting Oil (Not CF so I will need a change), might be for a nice night oil.

I hope you have enjoyed this short post. I am highly interested in you advise, so please comment below.

My foundations

Hi lovelies,

November just have been started, which is my clear out month each year, so I am going to check out our household and get ride off our unused stuff, of course it is really useful before moving to our FLAT.

I have already selected out so of my drugstore makeup and now let’s continue with my foundations. I have 3 high-end and 2 drugstore now, 4 of those are pretty good and one will be getting ride off at the end.

  • Clinique: Age Defense BB with SPF 30- yes it is a BB cream, which I love to use during “normal” days. It is not CF, so I will not repurchase it, even it is my 4th or 5th tube… it is such a longwearing oil-control formula with UVA/UVB protection, so this is the key why it is anti ageing, it is also fragrance free and allergy tested. No need primer nor fixing powder and also great for sports. It i works for normal or combination skin. Its INCI is pretty,only Benzophenone-3 is on high risk at EWG scale, which is a chemical UVB protector. I need its CF dupe… I have bought Shade 02  at Doha Duty Free last February, 40ml is 39USD now at clinique.com.
  • Trend it up: Insta Ready Oil Free make-up– I have gifted during Glamour days with this ultra lightweight foundation. It is silky matte, quite liquify, no SPF but nicely stays for a full day, nothing extra in it, good INCI and no perfume. Shade 010 is retailed at DM for 1 000 HUF(ca. 3,8 USD) in 30ml- ideal for normal,combination-oily skin, it is CF.
  • The Ordinary: Serum Foundation– very similar to the Trend it up one, might a bit more coverage, but also quite liquify for all skin types with SPF 15. It is a product,which people hate or love, I am on the love side. Ordered in August from cultbeauty.co.uk in the shade 1.2N- Light Neutral, 30 ml is 5,70 GBP and CF too.
  • Estée Lauder: Double Wear is a miracle, so many people love it, I also think it is probably the best foundation which I have every used, of course it is medium to full coverage, so I do not use it for everyday- just for occasions or bad skin days. It is really stays for 15 hours (have tested on my wedding) with SPF 10, nice INCI only a pump missing. Their shade range is amazing, probably have one which is too light for me…. As it will finish I need to look for its CF dupe, comment down if you have suggestions. Bought it in August, 2017 at Estée Lauder Store in the shade 1c1- Cool Bone, now 30 ml is 42 USD at sephora.com.
  • Bobbi Brown: Foundation stick– you might already now it was not my  Bobbi Brown favourite product so by the time I am writing this, it has already gone to the trash, this formula might be better for someone with dry skin, also 3 beige was not a perfect match too, how ever I loved its packaging. Bought it at Bobbi Brown Store over a year ago, now 9g is for 46 USD at bobbibrowncosmetics.com.

I hope you have enjoyed this list, comment below your favourite foundations.

Xoxo.

Birthday haul

Hi lovelies,

I am on to share you my second Cultybeauty haul, Here the first . August is my birthday month, so I have used my 15% off coupon code. As we are having Flat project on I have chosen only a few things, so Norvina Palette still will be on a wish list only. All these products are cruelty free, As I am getting cruelty free.

Again everything arrived safely. I have not tried all of them yet, so on:

– Zoeva En Taupe: I was on to have a pencil brush, a dupe of MAC 217 and a big fluffy blending brush, but I have found this brush kit, wish was a better deal, so I have received a brow angled brush, angeled liner brush( I already have MAC 266) and detailed eyeshadow brush. I have tried once them, looks to nice and seems to be a good quality, however, the blending brushes are not as soft as MAC or ABH once- I hope it will be better by washing them a few times. This set is comes in a clutch, which is pretty.

– Zoeva Strobe gel : it was a gift, in the shade Corona, which might will be a bit dark for my skin, so I have not decided whether to keep or to sell this liquid Highlighter. What do you think about this product?

– The Ordinary Serum Foundation: I really wanted to try this inexpensive foundation, I have chosen the lighter formula for everyday use. So liquidy and 1.2 Natural seems too yellow on my hand, but it works nicely on my face and it is amazing for a whole day…

– The Ordinary Niacinamide 10%- Zinc 1%:this is a cult products for blemishes, which I will try after my Body Shop finish.

– Pixi Glow Tonic: that was a product I just really wanted to, even I have not tried it out, but I can not wait. Just I do not want to use two exfoliation product in the same time.

Of course I have received the two little samples….

Xoxo,
