10 favourite beauty products!

In this post I want to share with you my favourite beauty products.  I’ve included diverse care products. For make-up and others I’ll do a separate post. I buy these items each time when containers are empty. I hope you will find something useful. You can share your  favourite beauty products in comments! <3


creme de la mer beauty products

1. Crème de la Mer 

Let me first say that my face skin is like a capricious child. At least it was. Sometimes it was oily, sometimes dry, above that it was sensitive and so on. I really thought that it comes just from the inside and that’s why I didn’t want to spend ‘’big money’’ on creams. However my philosophy has changed and I really think that it is a good idea to invest money in skin care products. And believe me I spent more money on cheaper creams that in the end I didn’t use! I’m not saying that it will do miracles for you, however this cream helped me re-balance my skin so now it’s just normal skin. It nourishes very well and it’s perfect for cold periods. I would like to try also creams from ‘’La Prairie’’ and ‘’Intraceuticals’’ to make a comparison. However at the moment I’m happy with the Crème de la Mer! And despite the fact it is a bit expensive, a small pot of 30 ml. lasts for 3 to 4 months.


clinique facial soap beauty favourites


 2. Clinique – Liquid Facial Soap

Probably now I’m on my 5th or 6th bottle of this product. If you are still looking for a facial soap, try this one! It washes everything, even eye make-up.  An important thing is that it is gentle and doesn’t dry the skin! A bottle lasts for about 3 months and it is not expensive.


Jojoba oil beauty products

       3. Jojoba Oil

This is my favourite oil. From my experience with oils, I have around 10 different oils, this one is almost 100% absorbed by skin leaving it smooth and nourished. Don’t get me wrong, I love all my oils, but this one doesn’t leave that greasy sensation.  Sometimes I use it instead of day creams, even under make up ( I used it with aloe vera gel and over I could use concealer and loose powder). What I really enjoy to do with jojoba oil is removing the residue of my eye make-up.


indian healing clay beauty favourites


  4. Indian Healing Clay

You can find a lot of information online about how you can use this clay. I use it only as a face mask. I mix a spoon of clay with 2 spoons of organic apple vinegar. It does miracles! I always thought that it is impossible to get rid of blackheads on your nose and cheeks. However after even the first application of this mask you can see the results. The skin is clearer and smoother, pores are pure!   The circulation of the skin is activated incredibly! You can feel your face pulsate!


salicylic acid beauty favourites


 5. Salicylic Acid

I like this product a lot, however I was really unsure about to post it or not because if you would like to try it you really need to inform yourself about how to use it and consequently to use it carefully. I’ve started to use salicylic acid of 5% and gradually moved to 30%! So if you never tried, don’t buy the one of 30%! Why I use it? I suffered from adult acne the last year and now I have post acne hyperpigmentation.  Salicylic acid helps me to reduce the blemishes. It makes the skin to peel off, so it stimulates the skin to renew faster. Apart from that it also treats other skin disorders. Please read carefully the instructions before using this product.


obagi clenziderm line beauty favourites


        6. Obagi Clenziderm Line

As I’ve told you, I suffered from adult acne the past year. I tried many natural remedies, however nothing worked for me. I will make a post about how I’ve treated my acne after I’ll clear all my post acne marks and blemishes. However I can say that these products worked really well for me. I think that without them the result would not be the same. I’ll write a separate post about them, so stay tuned for it specially if you have a problematic skin.


nivea cream beauty favourites


   7. Nivea Cream

This is a universal cream. I love it and I carry it with me everywhere.  When it comes to really dry skin, nothing works faster than Nivea cream. I have really dry corners of the mouth and nothing helps me apart from Nivea cream. So if you have really dry skin somewhere, just put a generous amount of Nivea cream overnight and you will be surprised by the result in the morning! Also I use it instead of the lip balm!


frenchi nails hardener beauty favourites


8. Frenchi – Nail Hardener

I’ll be short here. This one is the best nail hardener that I’ve tried so far! It really helps to grow beautiful nails. Use it regularly and correctly and you will see the results straight away!


garnier body oil beauty favourites


      9. Garnier Body Ultimate Regenerating Oil Anti– Age Skin Perfector

I don’t like the sensation of oil or cream on my body, so I was looking for something light which is fast absorbed by skin.  This product nourishes the skin, makes it look and feel better, but the most important thing for me is that it is really easy to apply and it has non transfer on clothes feature.


loreal professional mythic oil hair beauty favourites


10. L’Oreal professional Mythic Oil

This oil is a must have for any hair type! But if you have dry and damaged hair this product is essential for you as it helps to combat all these problems.  It nourishes really well, makes your hair softer and the ends healthier. It doesn’t leave a greasy sensation and a bottle could last ages as you need only few drops when applying it.

    Great suggestions! I should definitely try them :)
    My favorites are Bioderma Sensibio micellar water (“can’t do without” product I use daily) and Bioderma Atoderm Cream, which is a no smell hydrating body cream for sensitive skin. I also love Tonymoly Floria Active Peeling Gel. It acts like an instant peeling which cleanses the skin very well, I feel like I have a new skin after it :)

      I want to try Bioderma as well! I’ve heard that their micellar water is wonderful! Where did you get the Tonymoly peeling gel? :)
