Hi there! Welcome to my third and final Best Of Beauty 2019 post. As a quick reminder, I’ve done two posts already – one about skin care, the other one about face masks, and today’s post is about everything else!
And why am I doing this post in January 2020? I wanted to include the stuff I tried and used in December as well. I also didn’t want to reschedule posts I had already scheduled. Anyhoo, let’s get to the products!
Aussie Mega Shampoo & Conditioner
Aussie’s Mega products are simply amazing! They’ve become all-time favourites!
Gliss Hair Repair Magnificent Strength Shampoo & Conditioner
Gliss’ Magnificent Strength products are absolutely brilliant! 11 stars!
Gliss Hair Repair Total Repair Shampoo & Conditioner
Gliss’ Total Repair hair products are fantastic too!
Herbal Essences Bio Renew Rosemary & Herbs Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner
The best Herbal Essences hair care combo since their stellar classics from the 90s! Yes, yes, yes!
Yves Rocher Monoï Eau Des Vahinés Eau De Toilette
Yves Rocher did an outstanding job with this fragrance!
Anna Sui Romantica Exotica Eau De Toilette
This Anna Sui fragrance is incredibly dreamy. I fell in love with it!
Jennifer Lopez Glow Eau De Toilette
Calvin Klein CK IN 2 U Eau De Toilette
Whilst I’m not a fan of the actress/singer Jennifer Lopez, I’m very fond of her Glow fragrance. Calvin Klein’s CK IN 2 U fragrance has been an everyday favourite for a little while as well.
UNE Casual Matt Colour Lipstick M08
UNE’s lipsticks are just wow!
Miss Sporty Lipliners – 007 Slow, 013 Coconut, 014 Earth
I love the neutral shades of Miss Sporty’s lipliner range!

How beautiful is this Revolution lipstick?

Superdrug’s limited edition body cream is a skin care superstar!

Hi there! November is behind us, and today’s post is about my November 2019 beauty trash. 🙂 I used quite a few single-use face masks. I didn’t keep the empty sachets, but if you’d like to read about my latest face mask finds, click here. Onto the big empties!
1 Boots Botanics All Bright Cleansing Foam Wash – I enjoyed this face wash, and I’d like to buy it again (once I’m at least halfway through my face wash stash).
2 Imperial Leather Relaxing Orchid & Ylang Ylang Infusions Bath Cream – this a lovely bath cream that I will buy again.
3 Jennifer Lopez Glow EdT – whilst I’m not a fan of the singer/actress J Lo, I’m enjoying quite a few of her fragrances. I can definitely see myself buying a big 100ml bottle of Glow again!
4 Max Factor Pan Stik 25 Fair – my holy grail foundation! And this is the original Pan Stik – not the stuff they sell now…
5 Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream With Moonstone Extract – this is a lovely body cream. It’s a limited edition, but I have one more tub!
6 Nourish Protect Cooling Toning Mist – this is a very good face mist. I enjoyed using it! I’ll buy it again if it’s on special.
7 Good Things Spa Manuka Honey Nourishing Body Wash – another amazing body wash that I’d like to pick up again!
8 Boots Time Delay Deep Cleansing Facial Exfoliator – this stuff was good but not great. It’s been discontinued now, but I wouldn’t have repurchased it anyway.
9 Maybelline Black Eyeliner – this is a very good eyeliner. It may have been the last of the bunch or I might have a few more (I used to buy these in bulk). I’d buy these eyeliners again.
10 Boots No 7 Devil’s Delight Nail Polish – this is a good quality polish. I might have a backup (from one of the countless half price Christmas gift sets I bought over the past few years). Anyhoo… I’m happy to have finished another colour polish!
11 Boots Botanics All Bright Hydrating Day Cream SPF15 – this day cream was very nice. I’m sure I’ll buy it again!
12 L’Oréal Elvive Dream Lengths Detangling Conditioner – a very unspectacular conditioner. Repurchase? Nope!
13 Imperial Leather Moroccan Spa Orange Blossom & Argan Oil Spa Escape Bath Cream – another amazing bath cream that I’ll buy again soon!
14 Yves Rocher Les Plaisirs Nature Organic Vanilla Silky Lotion – I enjoyed this silky lotion very much. I have 2 more bottles (old and new packaging).
I’m pleased with what I finished last month – I like to finish big bottles as well as small items like nail polish and eyeliner. I think I’ve done well again! Which products have you finished lately? Feel free to get in touch via the comments, and thanks for reading! 😊

Hi there! It’s the last day of the month, and this means that today’s post is about the products I loved the most in October. I picked my TOP 3 as well as a few honourable mentions from all the products I’ve reviewed this past month. Let’s start with the TOP 3!
3rd place – Yves Rocher Nutritive Végétal Velvety Cleansing Milk
Runner-Up – Jennifer Lopez Glow Eau De Toilette
Yves Rocher did an amazing job with this cleansing milk. And J Lo’s Glow fragrance is incredibly lovely.
WINNER – Poundland #6 Anti-Ageing Eye Cream
Poundland’s £1 eye cream turned out to be the surprise hit of the month. I’m very happy with it, and I know I’ll buy it again.
Onto the honourable mentions! Jiinju‘s wonderful Avocado Sheet Mask came in 4th (it was close). I enjoyed By Nature‘s Nourishing & Firming Face Mask. And NSPA‘s Luscious And Juicy Red Cherry Daily Refresh Shower Scrub is the perfect body scrub.

Hi there! Today’s post is about Jennifer Lopez Glow Eau De Toilette.
I’ve had this fragrance in my stash for ages, and I’ve never even given it a try – until this summer.
Jennifer Lopez Glow contains orange blossom, neroli and grapefruit (top notes), tuberose, jasmine and rose (heart notes), as well as sandalwood, amber, musk, orris root and vanilla (base notes).
What does the fragrance smell like? It’s difficult to say! It smells soapy, powdery, a little musky and strangely clean. It leaves my clothes and scarves smelling like bubblegum. The fragrance is beautiful, and the “leftover” bubblegum scent is incredibly addictive.
I’m pretty sure I’ll finish my bottle of Glow over the next 4 weeks, and I can definitely see myself buying it again!
Jennifer Lopez Glow Eau De Toilette is available as 30, 50 and 100ml. Prices vary quite a bit – depending on where you shop.
