Yes, it is official. Last weekend we did change our clocks to the winter time, which means that summer is officially over. This does not mean that we need to cry and look back at our summer photos and wish it did not end. This time is the perfect time to embrace the new season and the beauty of winter. If you are still regretting the end of the summer period, I found something that will keep you busy, October Favourites!
NYX Illuminator (Shade Magnetic)
NYX has been loved in the US and now it is finally coming to the UK. It recently opened its counter in Selfridges and it is also available in Boots. This illuminator looks really good on cheeks, it has quite a lot of shimmer so it gives you this fresh, glowing look + you can use it on face and body. It blends in easily, and it is available in 5 shades so if you have a different skin colour you will find something for yourself as well 😉 (Available here, £8.50)
NYX Butter Lipstick (Shade Lollies)
The range of butter lipsticks is my favourite as they moisturise your lips, so you will not get the dry lips feeling half way through the day. This colour is quite natural, so it is ideal for everyday makeup look. Lovely packaging, lovely product. If you are a lipstick fan, NYX Butter Lipsticks are the ones to try. (Available here, £5.50)
F.O.Y Absolute Nectar Massage Oil
Fountain of Youth is a new brand which specialises in anti ageing products. I recently tried their nourishing massage oil and I actually loved it. It comes in a great size of 200 ml so it will lasts for a long time as you only need to use a little bit. It has a delicate, quite sweet scent which add that ‘something’ to your massage. I used it as a part of my evening routine, and massaged it into my skin, to get silky skin the next day. It is filled with three oils, jojoba, avocado and olive oil, which are all great for your skin, and will keep it nourished and glowing. (Available here)
Vita Coco Coconut Oil
As you probably noticed, I am a fan of all sorts of oils and everything that is natural. Vita Coco recently introduced this coconut oil to the UK market and I was sent a sample to try out. What is important when choosing a coconut oil, is that it is organic, extra virgin and cold pressed. If it fulfils all these criteria then it there are good chances that it is a good quality oil. I liked using this oil for my body as a moisturiser, for my hair as a mask and for my legs as a shaving cream. You can also use this for cooking, so if you get bored of it in your bathroom, it will make your food taste great 🙂 For a free sample go here. (Available in Boots, £10/500ml)
Etude House Baking Powder
The thing with Korean products is that they all have such cute packaging *-*. This baking powder is literally a white powder to which you add water and then wash your face. It has no particular scent, but thats good because you don’t need to be worry about having of artificial fragrance on your face. It deeply cleanses your skin, and after few weeks of using I could see that my complexion looked brighter and clearer. Definitely a must-have. I would recommend it for more combination or oily skin, and if you have dry skin then use it only twice a week (Available here £8.99).
Nanokeratin RE Vitalise
I am always up for trying new haircare products, but since my hair is quite dry, I am constantly on a lookout for nourishing products. Before trying out the Nanokeratin products, I heard a lot good things about the brand so finally I got the chance to test it out! I enjoyed using the shampoo as well as the conditioner. The key was to let the products work on your hair instead of washing them off immediately to get the optimal results. The shampoo and the mask combined together made my hair smooth, frizz free and revitalised it. I am definitely going to consider purchasing a full size product. The only downside is that it is quite pricey but your hair is worth the investment 😉
