September Beauty Awards

Hi there! Welcome to my September Beauty Awards, aka my monthly favourites post. As always, I’ve chosen my top 3 products from all the poducts I’ve reviewed this month. And I’ve thrown in a few honourable mentions as well. Let’s start with the top 3!

3rd place – Daily Defense Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner With Argan Oil

Daily Defense’s Argan Oil hair products are amazing. Just wow! I’ll buy them again, no doubt.

Runner-Up – Ekél Natural Clean Peeling Gel With Grape

I love Ekél’s Grape Natural Clean Peeling Gel. I already bought 2 more Ekél products because I love this product so much.

WINNER – Olay Essentials Complete Care Multiradiance Moisturising Lotion

Olay’s Multiradiance Moisturising Lotion is simply wonderful. It makes my skin look and feel refreshed, and it smells like… a summer morning. Awesome stuff!

Now onto the honourable mentions! I think J Lo’s Live Luxe fragrance is really nice. Garnier’s Intense 7 Days Ultra-Replenishing Lotion with Shea Butter is very good, and I’m sure it’ll serve me well this autumn and winter. And Boots’ Essentials Cucumber products were a fantastic surprise. If you’ve never tried Boots’ own brand cucumber products, you need to change that!

Have you tried any of these products, or would you like to try them? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for  reading! 🙂

Guilty Pleasure – Jennifer Lopez Live Luxe Eau De Parfum

Hi there! I’ve been a fan of J Lo’s Live fragrance for quite some time. And a few weeks ago I found a similar looking fragrance online.

I did some research, and it turned out that I found Live’s “sister fragrance”! I bought it right away – it was  £12.95 for 100ml which is a total bargain! 🙂

I’ve been wearing this fragrance on and off for a few weeks now, so let me tell you more about Jennifer Lopez Live Luxe Eau De Parfum.

First of all, J Lo’s Live Luxe fragrance contains the following notes:
– peach, pear and melon (top note),
– freesia, honeysuckle and lily of the valley (heart note),
– and sweet vanilla, amber, musk and sandalwood (base note).

And what’s the fragrance actually like? I think that Live Luxe is a really nice fragrance. It smells of fresh fruits, vanilla and sweet flowers. It’s a well-rounded fragrance. And it has the same happy, yellow, juicy and summery vibe as Live, even though Live Luxe feels warmer and a little more dense.

I think Live Luxe is another great J Lo fragrance! And I’m saying this as someone who’s not a J Lo fan. In fact, I never really cared for J Lo’s music or her movies (or anything else she did or does now). But I have to say that Live and Live Luxe are great fragrances.

Have you tried Live or Live Luxe? Or would you like to try these fragrances? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for reading!
