Today I’m gonna share with you what are the 10 beauty products that I was constantly using over the July. If you are interested keep on reading.
First move in my beauty routine is to remove all of my make-up. For this I need powerful make-up remover to remove even the waterproof make-up, but gentle enough not to harsh my very sensitive skin. So I found this little green beauty – Cien make-up remover in the Lidl supermarket and it provides me with everything I need from it. It has lotus flower and silk essence and has a very gentle and pleasant smell. Also, I love the package, it is very practical for it has some kind of dispenser at the top so you can always take the perfect amount of the product and it goes directly on your make-up pad. See it here>>>
I love the make-up pads from the same collection because they are thick, soft and they doesn’t lose their shape while using them.
The next step is washing my face to remove the rest of the dirt and make-up from my face. First I rinse my face with water , the massage a small amount of cleansing gel on my face, keep on massaging it for a few minutes and then rinse it off with water. At the moment I am using Bioten cleansing gel with cotton extract. It doesn’t dry out my skin at all, as a matter of fact I feel like I was applying moisturizing cream, for it leaves my skin very soft after using it. The smell is delicate and very nice, something like mild almond or something similar. After this step, my skin is clean and ready for the next step.
Once or twice a week I do my face scrubbing to remove dead cells and old skin after wich my skin gets healthy glow and it is prepared for the next step – face mask. Face pealing prepares the skin for the mask because it opens the pores and cleans them deeply, so after that your face can soak mask much better. I love Avon’s cucumber face scrub because it is refreshing and super purifying, but gentle and smooth. I need really small amount of it, so this product lasts for a long time.
Face mask that I’m using at the moment is also from Avon, also purifying. This one is made with dead sea minerals and it is used for cleaning your skin on deep levels. I use it once or twice a week, when I have time I leave it for 10-15 minutes. But when I’m in a rush and want and instant effect I apply it on face and keep it during the shower. That way I save my time and steam from the hot shower opens my pores and helps my mask actually work.
After all this it’s important to moisturize my skin and refresh it. I have a very dry skin and after a lot of struggle I found out that a normal face creams and toners doesn’t work for me. So what I do is apply Aloe vera gel (at the moment I’m using Banana boat aloe vera gel) on my face every morning and every evening instead of a toner. A lots of toners are made with alcohol and even those for dry skin doesn’t do the work for me. Aloe vera gel instead keeps my skin fresh, elastic and protected during the whole day. Also what I have noticed is that my T-zone doesn’t get shiny when I use my gel and the reason for that is: when my skin gets dry it is trying to keep its balance by producing more sebum. Plus, as you probably know Aloe vera is very good in removing scars , redness and blemishes, so if you have a problem with that, please don’t use aggressive products, you will only make more damage. I know this from my experience, for I damaged my skin with strong and agressive products. Instead, have patience and be gentle to your skin with Aloe vera.;)
As I said, in the morning after using my gel I apply moisturizing bb cream. Here I have several options depending on effect I want and I will make a separate blog post about my thoughts of tested bb creams. I stopped using foundation for 4 months (I used it only couple of times for the evening events) and I can see how my skin is getting healthier every day. That’s why I love bb creams – they have a coverage but they also care about skin.
That’s all about my face routine. Now I will show you some more products that I use on a daily basis and I love them.
I was at the shop two weeks ago looking for a new deodorant and I couldn’t choose in a bunch of colorful products when I saw this little Angel, literally.:D Of course I had to buy it -it looked like Barbie fairy.♡ But the smell of this SHE is an angel perfumed deodorant is even greater than the package and you know it because my boyfriend said – wow, it smells so nice. And he always says when I’m asking him about perfumes – I don’t know, they are all the same. Or, go away with that I don’t want to smell it! Hahah
The smell is very long-lasting, too.
Body lotion that I am using at the moment is from The Body shop, the one with vineyard peaches. Wow! This is the first product from The Body shop that I have tried and it is amazing. It smells just like fresh squeezed fruits. I use it every day and my skin has got a bronze glow and healthy look. It brings a real spa experience for me.
From the face we got to the feet. They also need some care, especially now when we wear sandals and walk on the hot sand. For my feet I use this Afrodita feet balm, It softens my skin and refreshes it. The product is thick and supply and it leaves a long-lasting effect. I can truly see the change after a constant usage of it.
P.s . This balm you can use also on the other hard skin on the body such as knees and elbows. One more plus for it.
And the last, but not the less important is my spf cream. I love the Garnier Amber solaire protection lotion with high filter. This product made me actually enjoy applying a sunscreen. It is not greasy at all, but it is perfectly hydrading my skin. After constant usage of it, my skin became elastic and smooth. The product is water-resistant and it doesn’t leave white marks after you go into the water, it stays invisible but present. It smells like a sun (I know I’m crazy xD ) and happiness and it also claims that contains a vitamin C. The UVA/UVB filter is high, so I don’t have to worry about dangerous sun burns. I love it so much, that sometimes I use it before I go to the bed, after a shower, because I really enjoy how it hydrates my skin after a day at a sun.
That’s it about my beauty routine and favorite products of the July. Let me know what are your thoughts and your fav beauty products.
Untill the next time,
