February is almost over and it's time to show you the products that I've been loving this month.
But first, I would like to thank you for such amazing comments on my last post, especially for all the get well wishes, as I'm finally feeling healthy again.
Once again, I don't have a lot of things to talk about, as truth be told, yesterday was the first time this month that I actually wore a full face of makeup.
I definitely need to change this since I have so many new-ish things that I still haven't played around properly.
I bought this CadeaVera (CV) Young Milder Reinigungsschaum after hearing Julia Graf and Sara talk about it. It was sitting in my drawer for awhile now, as I've been trying to use up the L'Angelica cleansing mousse, but I gave up on that one and started using this one instead.
Although this is also a foam cleanser, it's a lot more gentle and not drying at all. It also feel softer and fluffier on the touch, has a lovely sweet&fruity scent and is really affordable. You can get it in Műller.
I've been using it as my daily cleanser and it does a great job at cleansing your skin & leaving it soft and smooth, but I haven't tried removing a full face of makeup with it yet.
The Body Shop Frosted Cranberry hand cream was a gift from the lovely Astrid. First of all, this smells HEAVENLY! Sweet yet sour, and so refreshing. I could honestly just smell this the whole day.
But the reason I've been using it a lot, is because my hands have been so dry recently, especially my palms, so this has been living on my desk. It's really lightweight, gel-like texture, it's sinks into the skin really quick, yet does a great job at moisturising. C'mon now, we need The Body Shop here in Slovenia!
In my Updated Nail care routine I told you that I've been in a 'red nail polish' phase recently, and this hasn't changed yet. I used to wear red nails all the time in high school, and after that I only wore them every now and again. But every time I do, I remember why I love red nails so much, they just look so elegant and lady-like on your hands.
My current favourite red shade is this 404 Scarlet Vamp from L'oreal that was also featured in my nail care routine. It last for about 4 days, needs 2 thin coats and has a flat & quite big brush.
Now onto a few makeup bits.
Remember the Rimmel London Lash Accelerator Endless mascara from The battle of new mascaras in my stash?
Well, I have to take that downside I mentioned there back. Now that it got even drier, it actually stopped smudging on me. I haven't changed anything in my makeup routine, so I think this could be the only reason for that. It also does a better job at separating and lengthening my lashes. It truly is a great every day mascara.
NYX Powder blush in Mocha was a rediscovery for me. I bought it quite awhile ago but I barely used it, cause it's quite harder and less pigmented than the shade Pinched I also have, and I was kinda disappointed by it. But since I've been wearing minimal makeup, I've been loving using this one. Since it's not so pigmented, it's completely matte and because of the shade itself, it looks like you're naturally blushing, which is what I want. And who knows, maybe I just need to get through the first layer for it to fully shine with its pigmentation.
Sticking with the naturally looking theme, my go to lip product this month has been Burt's Bees Replenishing lip balm with pomegranate oil. This gives just a tiny, tiny bit of a raspberry tint to my lips. Just enough for them to not look completely ''bare'' and a bit more plump.
Like the other Burt's Bees lip balms that I've tried, this one is also very nourishing & moisturising, and also has a lovely pomegranate scent.
