September Beauty Awards

Hi there! It’s the last day of the month, so today’s post is about the products I loved the most in September. I picked my TOP 3, and there are quite a few honourable mentions. But let’s start with the TOP 3. 🙂

3rd place – Anna Sui Romantica Exotica

I bought Anna Sui Romantica Exotica for its insanely cute packaging, but I ended up loving the fragrance!

Runner-Up – Primark PS… Smoothing Dead Sea Mask

Primark did an amazing job with this face mask. It’s one of the best face masks I’ve tried all year.

WINNER – Makeup Revolution London Lip Hug Love Can Set You Free

This lipstick is one of the best lipsticks I’ve ever had. The colour, the formula, the flavour… it’s an all-time favourite. 11 stars!

Onto the honourable mentions! The Body Shop’s Polynesian Island Tiaré is my favourite TBS product ever. I’m enjoying Nourish’s Cooling Toning Mist. Essence’s Coral Delight lipgloss is simply wonderful, and W7’s Bare It All eye palette is my current go-to palette.

I’m also enjoying Kallos’ Multivitamin Hair Mask, and I’m very fond of The Crème Shop’s koala mask and their Maca Root mask.

Have you tried any of these products? Or would you like to try any of them? Which products have you been loving lately? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for stopping by!

Anna Sui Romantica Exotica Eau De Toilette

Hi there! Today’s post is about one of the fragrances I’m using at the moment – Anna Sui Romantica Exotica Eau De Toilette.

This fragrance contains the following notes: fresh citrus and blackcurrant (top notes), jasmine sambac, salty notes, lotus flower and orange blossom (heart notes), and tropical gardenia, cottonwood and hinokiwood (base notes).

I think Romantica Exotica is a cute fragrance. It smells of citrus and floral notes (orange flower and gardenia are noticeable) with a hint of sandalwood and banana. Yes, I know there’s no sandalwood or banana in this fragrance, but… go have a sniff yourself!

My husband actually says that this fragrance smells like Light Blue with banana – and I somewhat agree. But I do think that Romantica Exotica is warmer and sunnier than Light Blue. If Light Blue smells light blue, Romantica Exotica smells like a sunny yellow version of it. ☀️

All in all, I like this fragrance a lot. I bought it because of the cute packaging, and I didn’t really know what to expect. So you can imagine how happy I was when the fragrance turned out to be such a little gem! And now I’m even considering buying the big 75ml bottle!

Anna Sui Romantica Exotica Eau De Toilette is available as 30ml, 50ml and 75ml Eau de Toilette. I paid £10.99 for the 30ml bottle.
