May Beauty Awards

Hi there! Today’s post is about my favourite products in May – and here they are!

3rd place – MakeUp Revolution Redemption Palette Romantic Smoked

MakeUp Revolution did an amazing job with this eye palette. So many lovely shades!

Runner-Up – Ekél Natural Clean Peeling Gel Rice Bran

This is my 4th peeling gel from the brand Ekél – and I love it!

WINNER – Lancôme Hypnôse Eau De Parfum, Hypnotising Shower Gel, Hypnotising Body Lotion

Lancôme’s Hypnôse products are simply awesome! It’s crazy that this beautiful fragrance has been discontinued!

Onto the honourable mentions! NYC City Mono Eyeshadow 906 Luxury Reborn is a sensationally beautiful eyeshadow, and I Love… Mango & Papaya Bubble Bath & Shower Crème is the perfect shower gel for spring to summer.

Have you tried any of these products or would you like to try any of them? Which products are you enjoying right now? Feel free to comment, and thanks for reading!

Ekél Natural Clean Peeling Gel Rice Bran

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Ekél Natural Clean Peeling Gel Rice Bran. This product promises to exfoliate your skin. All you need to do is use a small amount (half a teaspoon tops) of gel – simply rub it all over your face. The gel will ball up – hence the exfoliating effect.

I started to use this product a few weeks ago, and I love it! This product exfoliates my skin well, and it makes my skin feel soft. It also removes make-up like nothing else – I love to use this peeling gel instead of a cleanser (but only when I’m about to step into the shower anyway as the balled-up cleaning gel is rather messy). I tried 3 other peeling gels from this brand, and whilst I loved them all, I like the rice bran scent the most. It fits the clean theme of the product perfectly!

Based on my experience, I’d recommend this product. If you’re interested, Ekél Natural Clean Peeling Gel with Rice Bran is available as 180ml. I believe I paid £4 (TK Maxx).

Beauty Haul! 20+ New Products – Olay, Ekél, Scinic, Daily Defense, Sukin, Balance, Rimmel, Primark, Sinful Colors, Orly & Max Factor

Hi there! Today’s post is about the beauty, skin care & toiletries I bought in August. Well, this is most of what I bought. There were a few purchases in between, but these were 1 or 2 items only each time, and I already stashed those products away…

Anyway, before I tell you what I bought, I’d like to remind you that I’m still doing 3 out / 1 in which means that I can buy 1 item (make-up, skin care, shower stuff, etc.) for every 3 items that I finish. I’m committed to the 3 out / 1 in policy. However, this time I had to ‘borrow’ from future empties. The offers were just too good! OK, now onto the goodies!

Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting UV Cream – finally, it is mine! This is an import from the US. Olay doesn’t sell this moisturiser in the UK. I’ve read great things about it, and I didn’t have to think twice when I found it for £12.99.

Ekél Natural Clean Peeling Gel Apple & Rice Bran – I bought the Grape version of this Peeling Gel a few weeks ago – and I fell in love with it. So I bought the apple and rice bran versions as well. They were £4.99 each.

Scinic Aqua All In One Ampoule – I’m only 50% sure of what this product is supposed to do. Yeah, I know what ‘all in one’ means, but still… anyway, the reason I bought this was because it just looked so cool. I’ll try to review this one asap. I paid £9.99.

Sukin Facial Recovery Serum – I bought this serum because it was £4.99 only. It’s usually just under £14, so this one was a total bargain.

Balance Active Formula Instant Effect Wrinkle Filler & Dragon’s Blood Eye Lift Balm – I’ve never heard of this brand, but the wrinkle filler was £2.99, and the eye lift serum was £1.99. I can’t wait to test these products!

Daily Defense Argan Oil 3-Minute Leave-In Treatment – So far I’ve been impressed with Daily Defense’s hair products. And that’s why I bought this deep conditioner. It was £1.99 only!

More Daily Defense! I bought the Daily Defense Macadamia Oil Shampoo & Conditioner combo and a massive 946ml Argan Oil Body Wash (which will probably take me a year to finish). These 3 products were 99p each!

I also bought 2 more Max Factor Pan Stiks. The shade 12 True Beige is the perfect shade for me, but I only use it as my winter foundation because it’s not easy to find anymore. The Pan Stiks were 2 for £5.99. I also bought 2 clear Orly polishes for 99p each. And I bought another Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 702 Marshmallow nail polish for 75p. I already have one bottle of this polish, but love these bubblegum purple nail colours so much!

I went to Primark and Poundland again. I picked up 2 cheap white polishes (Primark own brand, 60p each), and 5 Sinful Colors nail polishes (Poundland, £1 each).

This is (most of) the stuff I bought in August. I didn’t need any of these products, but I was lured in again… Have you tried any of these products? If so, how did / do you like them? Or would you like to try any of these products? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂
