Hello Beauty!
I hope you are all doing well, and despite January being cold and rainy, you have managed to appreciate it and use it as an excuse to spend cosy evenings at home and learn about Hygge (the art of cosines). I have definitely used the cold evenings for pampering and ‘me’ time. This month I have been loving hydrating hair products, stunning fragrances, and luxurious makeup products.

Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation SPF10 
I don’t usually use liquid foundation but lately I discovered this stunning foundation from Chanel. It is very light but provides the perfect coverage. Unlike other foundation, it does not feel heavy and does not crease. After applying my skin felt very hydrated and looked natural and flawless. Like all Chanel products, the packaging is beautiful and the foundation is very convenient to use thanks to the pump. A must-have. Available from Feelunique,  for £36.

Aura – Soma Pegasus Perfume 

I find this brand really interesting as it has a fascinating brand philosophy. Aura-Soma Pegasus fragrances demonstrate the visual and non-visual energies of colour, combining the energies of both essential oils and herbal extracts, evoking a beautiful aroma and the potential to enlighten the wearer’s mood... Every fragrance has its own properties which are also reflected in the design of the packaging. The brand also rejects the use of synthetics and uses only natural, essential oils from plants and flowers to create these fragrances. I suggest you have a look at the website to see the philosophy behind each fragrance!

I recently received some gorgeous testers from Aura Soma and over the last few weeks I have been testing all of them to find out my favorites. The ones that particularly caught my attention were the below:

75 – Top Middle and Base Notes consist of: Orange, Jasmine, Neroli, Patchouli, Vanilla. This is quite an earthy smell, you can smell the patchouli mixed with neroli, so overall the scent is quite heavy with hints of spices.

30 – Top Middle and Base Notes consist of: Bergamot, Olibanum, Oudh, Jasmine, Patchouli, Cedarwood, Amber, Vanilla, Saffron, Vetiver, Musk. This scent is quite heavy, and spicy, I loved wearing it in the evenings. This was my favourite out of all of the Aura Soma fragrances.

56 – Top Middle and Base Notes consist of: Nutmeg, Violet, Ylang Ylang, Jasmine, Powder Notes, Sandalwood, Amber, Musk. It is sweet and the prominent note is the powder, and most of my friends loved it!

80 – Top Middle and Base Notes consist of: Ylang Ylang, Jasmine, Lily, Carnation, Cinnamon, Benzoin, Rose, Vanilla. You can really smell the jasmine with a hint of vanilla, perfect for both day and night. 

39 – Top Middle and Base Notes consist of: Bergamot, Lemon, Geranium, Black Pepper, Nutmeg, Ylang Ylang, Vanilla, Cedarwood. This is probably the most subtle one. It can be easily worn during the day, I loved the zesty notes mixed with Cedarwood and vanilla.

All available from Aura-Soma website, for £85/50 ml

EMJ Classic Make-up Bag Large

Did you know that fabric make-up bags need to be exchanged every few months as they can accumulate bacteria, dirt and make-up? I know many of you cannot stand the thought of throwing your make-up bag away as it has been with you literally everywhere, but I am sorry, you need to let it go…
You can replace it with the amazing, super hygienic large make-up bag from emj. The bag can fit everything, including your hairbrush, and it can be cleaned regularly with an antibacterial wipe which will ensure that your skin will not be exposed to germs and old makeup. It is super convenient as it can hold everything, can be easily cleaned and has a fashionable faux leather element at the top. And the best part of it all is that you will not have to say goodbye to it soon! the emj company website, for£24. 
Real Food Source Cold Pressed Coconut Oil
You probably noticed the crazy hype around Coconut oil and its endless amount of uses. I love using it as a body moisturiser, when creating a body scrub or a lip scrub. It smells super yummy, and if you like coconut, then you won’t mind smelling like pina colada. 
What is amazing about this oil, is that it is 100% natural, so you avoid all the chemicals, silicones and ‘not so good’ substances. There are certain criteria that are important when choosing a coconut oil. It must be organic, extra virgin, cold pressed and it should be in a glass jar. The prices for extra virgin, coconut oil can range from £5-£50 a jar, depending on quality, brand and size. My current favourite is from RealFoodSource, for £4.19 for 500ml. 

Joyce Moisture Recovery

I always discover that during the winter months my hair starts to tangle, look frizzy and it becomes unmanageable. I blame it on the wooly hats, the weather extremes and the scarves. During those months, our hair is exposed to damaging effects, and so it is important that we use hydrating products such as Joico Moisture Recovery to hydrate it and lock in the moisture. 
Joico Moisture Recover is a leave-in moisturiser which you apply after washing your hair (and brush through). It hydrates the hair, so when it dries it is easy to brush through, smooth and looks glossy. Available from BeautyBay, for £9.25. 

L’Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil 

This oil is perfect pre-styling. It can work wonders even on a bad hair day. It contains a precious blend of 6 flower extracts which are great for the hair, providing the necessary nutrients that help it regain strength and make it look glossy. It can also be used as a heat protectant and as a hydrating oil on wet hair. I alway repurchase this oil as it has so many uses, is long lasting and really works. Available from Boots, for £9.99. 

Ania’s advice:
1. Throw away your old make-up bag
2. Take care of your hair 
3. Meet your girlfriends on Valentine’s Day

Hello Lovely

I hope your Detox January is going well and you are still sticking to your New Years Resolutions! One of mine is to finish up my open products and make space in my beauty cupboard! Here are some of my latest empties, if you are a skincare junkie, then you will love this post!

in Transit Camera Close-Up
This is my all time favorite primer from this works. Unlike all the other primers, it is not thick and sticky, but feels like a moisturizer. What I love about it, is that it is a mask, moisturizer and a primer in one so it hydrates your skin, protects it and prepares it for makeup. After applying, your skin feels hydrated and it looks like you got your beauty sleep, even if you didn’t. It smooths down any fine lines as well, ensuring that your make-up looks perfect. 
You only need one pump for the whole face, so overall it is very long lasting. The packaging is very convenient and it dispenses just the right amount of product. Will definitely repurchase! Available from Feelunique, £25.50.
East End Rose Water
Before I always used to use toner, and now I switched to Rose Water as I am trying to cut down on artificial skincare products. This product is sold in Tesco in the international food section, and it is normally used for cooking but in India rose water is a common ingredient used in beauty products. Overall I was very impressed by this product as it really tones and refreshes the skin and considering that it contains 2 ingredients it is a must-have product. Another advantage is that it is a great value for money as it only costs, £1 in Tesco, and lasts for 2 months. A must-have.

Lancome Bi-facil Eye Makeup Remover 
We all know that removing makeup at night is not one of our favorite activities. Especially if we are wearing waterproof mascara! This makeup remover is here to save you! It feels like a mi-cellar water with a facial oil which effectively removes all traces of makeup. The travel version was super useful during my city breaks! Available from lookfantastic, £21.50/125ml. 
Elemental Herbology Cell Nourish Radiance and Vitality Serum
I think this is one of my favorite serums which is why it often appears on my blog. The serum revives your skin and turns it from dull to bright and glowing. The serum is filled with vitamins, antioxidants and proteins which protect, nourish and hydrate the skin. I really liked using it when travelling as it is deeply hydrating and when used on the plane, it protects the skin from all the germs and bacteria. Once washed off and reapplied prior to landing, it brightens your skin and prepares it for the adventures ahead. This is on my repurchase list. Available from lookfantastic, £45. 
The Body Shop Tea Tree Cleansing Wipes 
These face wipes are amazing if you are suffering from breakouts and oily skin. The tea tree ingredient effectively cleanses the skin and pores from dirt and oil and really helps to clear out the complexion. I would suggest to use them every two days as they are drying. A week therapy with these and your skin will be good as new. Available from The Body Shop, for £5.50.

Lush Brazened Honey Fresh Face Mask 
I try to avoid Lush stores as once I enter, I cannot leave without purchasing something… Lush Brazened Honey Mask won me over straight away after I smelt it. It smells very intensely of fresh honey, can you imagine? The mask is hydrating, thanks to the honey and fresh fruits. It is also slightly exfoliating as it contains ground almonds, so when you wash it off, you should massage it in circular motion. It is ideal for the winter months! In case you didn’t know, if you bring 5 empty plastic lush boxes, you will get a free face mask :). Available from Lush, £6.95. 
Lush Let The Good Times Roll Cleanser 
This cleanser smells like buttery cupcake, I am not joking! It smells super nice, and its texture is a bit like play dough. I really liked using it in the evenings before going to sleep, as it cleanses and exfoliates the skin. You only need a little bit so it lasts for a while, comparably to the gel cleansers. I feel like this type of cleanser is very typical for Lush, and you cannot find it anywhere else. Available from Lush, £7.25.
Ania’s advice:
1. Focus on your skin 
2. Cleanse, exfoliate, moisturise
3. Embrace the cold!

Hi Stunning!
First of all I want to wish you Happy New Year, and welcome you in 2017.  I hope you all had a wonderful break and are back and ready for a year full of challenges! Libbie Club surprised me this month, and I must say, since I love organic products, this was probably one of the best boxes I received so far! Read my reviews to find out my thought on each one of them! All products are available on my Libbie Club page under this link

Laila Chamomile and Lavender Clay Mask

There is nothing better than a good clay mask to purify and cleanse your complexion. This mask is made with Fuller’s earth, kaolin clay and Moroccan ghassoul clay which are known as the best clays for healing skin conditions. As its name says, it is made with organic chamomile and lavender flowers absorbing oils, drawing out impurities and clarifying the skin. 
First of all, I loved the packaging of this mask, as it is a glass jar which is very convenient to use. The wooden spoon helps to measure the exact amount of the product and water. What I liked about this mask is that it is powder, so no product is wasted and it lasts for a very long time. The instructions say to mix 1 tablespoon of the mask with 4 tablespoons of water, but I prefer the mask to be thicker so I would use 2 tablespoons of the mask and 4 tablespoons of water. The mask should be left on for 15-20 minutes, to draw out impurities and cleanse the skin, and after this time your skin feels great! It closed my pores and really purified my skin. For best results use 1-2 times a week. Definitely worth trying out.

MOA Daily Cleansing Ritual 

I was so reluctant to start using this product as the packaging is so stunning! I love how it comes in this cute tube which makes it easy and convenient for travel! The cleansing ritual consists of a pot of Green Balm and a Bamboo Face Cloth. 
The Green Balm is scentless, so if you like aromatherapy you can always add a drop of essential oil to the bamboo cloth. The balm is a multipurpose balm, I loved using it for make-up removal, as it melted down all the makeup, in addition to hydrating my skin. The balm is ideal for oily, acne as well as dry and sensitive skin. It can also be used on dry skin areas, too soothe itchy skin, after shaving and on any bites. 
The cloth is made of antibacterial bamboo fibre, and in addition to that it is extremely soft so it feels amazing at the end of the day. I can honestly recommend this balm as it is incredibly useful, especially for travel as it has multiple uses and it is 100% natural.

Lin and Lo Instant Love Mascara 

This is a thickening mascara, which adds volume to the lashes making them look fuller and more glamorous. I found that it was pretty good, it didn’t clump the lashes, and didn’t crumble.
It is waterproof, so I would recommend it for summer months and for trainings, as it will stay on, no matter what is happening. I tested it out in the gym, and I was very satisfied with the results as it stayed on throughout my training and my sauna visit. Lovely product!

Ania’s advice:

1. Cleanse
2. Find time for a clay mask
3. Start a new sport!

Hi Beauties! 
December has been a super busy month and it has passed super quickly for me! Christmas shopping, Christmas and then skiing trip! I had lots of favourites that I wanted to share with you from this month without which I probably wouldn’t have survived 😉

Revlon uniq ONE All In One Hair Treatment
I love December but with December always comes the cold, scarves and coats which I also love but the scarves always end up tangling my hair. This year I discovered the treatment from Revlon which has been literally my rescue. This leave-in treatment is applied after you wash and condition your hair. All you need to do is to spray your hair and then brush through leaving you with untangled and gorgeous hair. 
It can be used on both wet and dry hair. I usually use it on wet hair to nourish, condition and untangle my hair, but you can use it on dry hair as a styling product. It is available also in the lotus flower and coconut versions but the classic one is definitely my favourite! Available from Amazon, £7.99. 
Maybeline Lash Sensational Mascara 
This is my current favourite drugstore mascara! It works wonders, thickening and lengthening your eyelashes. It has a silicone wand which separates the lashes, creating a stunning false lash effect. The mascara looks best when applied in layers, the first separates and captures the smallest lashes and volumises the longer ones, the second will result in a irresistible multiplied lash look. Available in Boots, £7.99. 
Nailsinc for Marie Claire Nail Polish 
I got this for free with a copy of Marie Claire and I absolutely love this pastel nail polish. Nail polish usually doesn’t last long on my nails but this one lasts for 4-5 days which is pretty good! The colour is a light, pastel purple which is ideal in the winter months. An absolute must-have. I cannot find it anywhere but the closest one is probably Primrose-Hill Lane Gel Effect, available from Boots, £15. 
Slimming Solutions Teatox 
Before New Year’s Eve we always experience the panic attack and sudden motivation to lose weight and look gorgeous during the party. Most of the time, half way through the month we give up, as weightloss during such short period of time is impossible without help, but now I found a helping agent so you can lose weight in just 28 days. Teatox from Slimming Solutions is an effective tea detox which consists of both daytime and evening blend. 
The daytime blend is to be enjoyed in the morning after waking up. The daytime blend is a mix of Chinese Oolong tea, Siberian Ginseng, Fennel, Lemongrass, Nettle leaves, Ginger root, Dandelion leaf, Ginseng root and Salvia militorrhiza.
The evening blend should be enjoyed every other evening before bed, and at least 30 minutes before the last meal of the day. The evening blend is a mix of Senna leaves, Hawthorn leaves, Lotus leaves, Fenugreek seeds, Burdock root, Peppermint, Psyllium seeds, Valerian root and Liquorice root.
The teatox has cleansing effect, helps constipation and bloating and increases energy levels. I really enjoyed this 28 day pack. Both teas taste great, and over the time I felt better, healthier and I felt that my skin improved as well. The Teatox also increased my metabolism, improved my digestion and made me feel much healthier. Available from Slimming Solutions, £34.99. 
Mitchum Advanced Women 48h Protection Powder Fresh Antiperspirant
This is my winter deodorant. It offers maximum protection, using its new oxygen odour control technology. It really reduces sweating, odour and helps to stay fresh throughout the day. It is also very hydrating as it contains Aloe Vera and Vitamin E so you can always use it, even if you just shaved your underarms. It is a creamy deodorant and so it does leave marks on dark clothes, however, that is why I use it in winter months as you always wear long sleeves! Available from Boots, £3.20.

 Skinfix Hand Repair Cream 
During the winter months my hands always get very dry because of the weather extremes. Sometimes I experience extremely dry hands and to be honest with you till this day I haven’t found a great hand cream, until I tried this Skinfix. The cream is very thick, fragrance free and very hydrating. Whenever I have dry skin patches I just apply this and after 2-3 applications they tend to disappear.   
It contains sweet almond oil, Shea butter and vitamin E which are very nutritious and help to create a barrier to protect the skin from the irritants and helps to lock in the moisture. If you suffer from dry hands, this is a cream to try. Available in Boots, £12.99. 
Ania’s advice:
1. Enjoy the last days of 2016
2. Dress up for New Year’s Eve
3. Get ready for new challenges!

Hi Beauties  
I hope you are all having a wonderful Christmas and you had some downtime to relax and unwind! The December Libbie Club box is filled with goodies that will help you recover after this super busy Christmas period, with all the shopping, cooking and family events! All the products are available on my libbie club page here . Enjoy!

The Hero Project UNDO: Bi Phase Waterproof Eye Makeup Eraser 
During the festive period we always need to look stunning, with beautiful makeup and gorgeous hair. I love to put on multiple layers of mascara to achieve the false lash effect, but obviously this is also much more difficult to remove. We all know that rubbing a cotton pad on your eye is not the best way to remove makeup, so the best thing to do is to buy a waterproof eye makeup remover and then place the soaked cotton pad on the eye to melt away all the makeup. 
This makeup remover from the Hero Project is a dual-action micellar and oil formula which effectively removes the makeup without the need to continuously rub. Although it is oil based, it does not make your skin oil. What I love about this remover is that it comes with a pump so that you use just the right amount, and avoid product wastage. A makeup junkie must have!
Wonderland Cosmetics Studio Finish Primer
I hate to reapply my makeup during Christmas parties or New Year Eve as I am usually to busy having fun! This primer is super light and it will even out your skin, and ensure that your makeup stays flawless throughout your evening. Take a pea sized amount and apply evenly on your skin. It evens our your skin, reduces the appearance of pores as well as fine lines and maintains perfect makeup all night. If you like long lasting makeup, it is a perfect addition to your makeup bag.

Viviscal  Gorgeous Growth Densifying Elixir
With all the heat styling, hair drying and straightening the hair is weakened and more prone to breaking. As you all know I am a fan of hair oils, and leave in treatments as I use them daily. This densifying elixir from Viviscal is there to revive your hair. It boosts hair volume, hydrates the hair and provides the nutrients needed for growth and shine. This is definitely worth purchasing, especially if you have thin or damaged hair. 
Ania’s advice:
1. Always remove makeup 
2. Give your hair some loving 
3. Think of New Year’s Resolutions!

Hi Beautiful!
Christmas is just few days away so I wanted to create this guide for any last minute christmas gifts as sometimes you just can’t find anything for a person until the very last day before Christmas! Or you might have just been postponing buying gifts until this week which can also be the case! This guide  is filled with gifts from categories such as skincare, bodycare, homeware and interior decorating. I hope you will feel inspired! 

Tiger Gold Candle Plates and Jewellery Box 

Tiger is one of these places where you can find a gift for everyone. Its sections are filled with homeware, stationary, beauty and anything you can wish for, is probably there. Their stock changes monthly so every time you visit you will find something new. I love these gold candle plates as you can use them not only for a candle, but also as a jewellery plate or to store your keys and coins at home. The trays cost £2 each. 
The jewellery box is a stunning gift as well, it has glass walls so you can see everything inside, and this vintage design fits in perfectly with the other items in my room. It is a perfect gift for anyone, and I am really in love with it! Definitely worth the bargain price of £6.

HM Home Leopard-print cup

HM home is one of those places where you can buy a gift for a home lover, interior design freak or a person who has everything as who doesn’t like receiving a cool mug, a gold pillow or a beautiful candle?
I really love this mug, as it is very pretty and I would definitely gift it to a blogger as it looks great in photographs too! It is pretty big, so perfect for a large cup of coffee on a monday morning, and once you drink it you will get a motivational quote – Go wild! Love Love Love! Available from hm, £6.99.

With the latest boom of multipurpose products, I always look for some cool ones on the market. Dr Bronner’s 8 in 1 soap has many uses. It can be used for a facial, shampoo, laundry, floor detergent or even to wash your dog. You just can’t go wrong with this gift! Available from here £9.99

Dr Bronner’s Orange Lavender Organic Hand & Body Lotion 

This body lotion is an ideal gift for a body care lover, or a person who loves to lounge. Like all the products from this brand, it is organic and has beneficial properties for the skin. The smells reminds me of Provence during spring, and the blooming lavender. The lotion is quite light, absorbs quickly and like I said, it smells divine! Available from here for £8.99.

DR Bronner’s Peppermint Organic Lip Balm

This is a nice addition to a Christmas gift, the small lip balm is a super handy gift that you can give to any girl as you can never have too many lip balms!

jane iredale Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain (Shade Forever Peach) 
This is a multipurpose product from jane iredale. You can use it as a both Lip and Cheek stain, saving time as well as space in your makeup bag! It is a very fascinating product as it will look different on every person, and the colour that develops depends on your mood or skin temperature. It reacts with the skin, creating a vibrant lip or cheek colours. 

jane iredale’s makeup is mineral, and has great skin benefits. It contains rose flower wax, beeswax, avocado butter and olive butter which make it nourishing and hydrating, ensuring that your lips not only look good but also feel good. The product has a delicate pomegranate flavour, which also acts like an antioxidant. I liked using it on my lips as it kept them hydrated, and added a vibrant colour.  You can use it either alone, over a lip pencil or under a lipgloss. Available from IIAA Website, £22 for a full size. 

jane iredale PureLash Extender Conditioner

It contains ingredients such as algae extracts which helps to condition and protects lashes, reduces splitting and breaking and enhances growth; panthenol which conditions the lashes; wheat protein which straightens the lashes. 

I liked using it before applying the mascara as it worked perfectly as a primer, adding length and a bit of volume to the lashes and protecting them from the mascara coats. Over 2 weeks of using, I noticed that my lashes were softer, hydrated and looked healthier. It can be used on both lashes and eyelashes and it works great as an overnight treatment! Available from IIAA Website, £16 for a full size. 

Environ Intensive Hydrating Oil Capsules 
These capsules are a night treatment which energises the skin and increases free radical defence. The product is loved by many celebrities such as Poppy Delavigne and Emilia Fox.

It absorbed quickly and didn’t stain  the bedsheets so you can go to sleep straightaway and let the capsules do their magic overnight. Overall, the capsules hydrated my skin and reduced the uneven skin tone which improved after every use. The skin felt smooth and the capsules were a great remedy when my skin was looking dull and tired. Available after consultation from IIAA Website, £44 for 30 capsules. 

Environ Intensive Avance 312  
Although this product is designed for a more mature age group, I wanted to see how it will react with my skin. It is formulated with 3 peptide complexes which keep your skin looking younger for longer. Peptides are an essential ingredient in anti-ageing products as they help to smooth down any lines and wrinkles and restore collagen levels. The Environ Avance is also filled with moisturising ingredients such as hyaluronic acids which restore the skin’s moisture. 

I used it as a night cream, and I felt that it really nourished my skin. Over the testing time, I also noticed that the skin around my lips and on my forehead look firmer even though I don’t have any strong fine lines yet. It is a great product for an older age group, and I would recommend it as a Christmas gift for your mother, aunt or an older friend. Available after consultation from the IIAA Website, £ 75 for 30ml.

We all know that Vitamin A is an essential vitamin to having a healthy and glowing skin. It is essential for cell production and repair, and it helps to prevent collagen breakdown, maintaining skin’s firmness. It also promotes better moisture levels, and balances the oil in the skin. The supplement also contains Vitamin D which is quite difficult to get, especially if you live in the rainy London. Vitamin D is also a vital ingredient as it has anti-ageing properties, protects the skin from bacterial infections and promotes cell growth. 

After using it for two weeks my skin felt healthier, an I noticed a decrease in breakouts. It is definitely a skin supplement that helps to maintain healthy skin, especially in the winter months. Available from the IIAA Website , £19.95 for 60 capsules.

Advanced Nutrition Programme Skin Omegas +
The Skin Omegas contain omega 3 and 6, and is enriched with vitamin A, supporting skin health. Filled with fatty acids, fish oil, and evening primrose oil the supplement works to bring you a healthy and luminous complexion. They help to prevent moisture loss and play and essential role in formulation of cell walls. Since my skin is usually dry, I need the help of supplements to maintain high moisture levels and prevent moisture loss. I really liked this supplement as it made my skin radiant and hydrated, ready for make-up application. Available from the IIAA Website, £28 for 60 capsules. 
Ania’s advice:
1. Invest in skincare supplements

The shades from Lola are easy to apply, and can be applied with a brush or applicator. I am a fan of brushes which is why I always apply the shadows with brushes as they are easier to blend in, especially if you use a variety of shades together. 

This eyeshadow can be used wet or dry. Wet your brush or applicator before applying for a more intense effect. It can be used for daily as well as for evening events. I love it!

Bean Body Coffee Bean Scrub Coconut 
There is nothing better during a cold Autumn morning than a hot shower with a coffee scrub. Coffee Scrub has great benefits for the skin such as anti-cellulite properties, reduction of scars and blemishes and it nourishes the skin. 

The Bean Body Coconut Coffee Scrub is made with organic Robusta Coffee Beans, Organic Cold Pressed Coconut Oil, Himalayan Pink Rock Salt, Demerara Sugar, Organic Cacao and Vitamin E oil.

iMantara Peaceful Palms Balancing Jasmine and Citrus Hand Lotion  
You know that everything that has Neroli and Jasmine is right up my street so this hand lotion won me over straight away. The scent is a combination of Neroli water, Mandarin essential oil, Coconut, Jojoba and Sweet Almond oil and anti-ageing Honeysuckle extract. 
It is a non-greasy hand lotion, which sinks in quickly and leaves your hands feeling smooth and nourished. I find it hard to find a good hand cream, and this actually is one of my latests hand cream favourites as not only it does the job but also looks lovely and the smell is divine. And let’s not forget the packaging – it looks stunning on my makeup table. I love it! Available here, £3.99. 
Tofu Moritaya Soy Milk Yogurt Facial Mask
My flatmate from Beijing introduced this face mask to me recently and Wow, it is so great! The brand is from Japan, and this mask is a very popular drugstore mask amongst the Asian consumers. The main ingredients include soy milk, soya bean, yogurt and honey which are well known for their beneficial skincare properties. 
This mask is a rinse-off mask, so you apply it onto the cleansed skin, wait 5 minutes and then rinse it off with warm water. I loved my skin after each application as it is very hydrating and nourishing, leaving my skin plump and healthy looking. There is hardly any smell, and the consistency is like one of a face cream. It comes in this cute plastic box, and there is a lot of product so it will last you for a while. I am a fan! Available from Amazon, for £17.17.  
Nouveau Lashes Eye Make-up Remover 
I recently received this lovely micellar gel Eye Make-Up Remover from Nouveau Lashes and I was amazed at how gently it removed the eye makeup. I usually struggle to remove eye makeup, and I feel that most products irritate the eye area, but this micellar gel is really gentle and efficient (no need for rubbing or rinsing off). 
I never used micellar gel so this is something new for me, but I will definitely repurchase this item as it leaves the eye area cleansed and hydrated as well, thanks to the prebiotic ingredients. It is suitable for both lash extensions and natural lashes. Available here, £14.99.

NYX Hydra Touch Brightener (HTB02 Glow) 
Since NYX came to the UK I cannot stop using their products. This is my new favourite from this brand, the Hydra Touch Brightener in Glow Shade. It is designed to illuminate the face so should be applied to cheekbones, cupid bow and temples.

It gives a shimmery finish when applied on the skin. I like this shade as it is a cool yellow but it warms up on the skin and makes the face brighter. It is water based and has a consistency of a soft crayon, it is easy to apply and blends in easily with foundation. A make-up junkie must-have. Available from Asos, £6.50. 

 Jane Iredale 24- Karat Gold Dust Shimmer Powder 
I recently discovered this brand during the Beauty Bloggers awards. Jane Iredale makes mineral makeup products which not only look good on the skin, but are also great for the skin. All products are multipurpose so you are free to experiment with how you use them. 
I was really excited to try the 24-Karat Gold Dust as I love wearing gold as an eyeshadow or as a highlighter. I found that this product looked great as an eyeshadow as it brightened my eye area and added a touch of glamour to my makeup. It comes in a loose powder, so you need to use the pot to sprinkle some inside, and a brush to apply. Overall it was long-lasting, looked very glamorous, and could be layered for a more evening look. Available from Jane Iredale, £15.
