February Beauty Awards

Hi there! Today’s post is about my favourite products in February. As usual, I’m starting with my top 3, and there’s an honourable mention below.

3rd place – Superdrug Naturally Radiant Moisturising Facial Oil

This facial oil is simply wonderful. It’s helping my skin heal after a bad psoriasis flare-up.

Runner-Up – Yves Saint Laurent Elle Limited Edition 2011, Yves Saint Laurent Elle Limited Edition 2012

YSL’s Elle limited editions are simply fabulous!

WINNER – Oriflame Mirage Eau De Parfum

Oriflame Mirage is one of the most incredible fragrances I’ve ever had the pleasure of smelling. It’s spicy, sophisticated, borderline dramatic and so unique! It’s the Moira Rose of fragrances!

I have one honourable mention this month – Farm Skin Tomato Revitalizing Sheet Mask which made my skin look and feel amazing!

And this is it for this month. Tomorrow’s post will be about all the products I finished in February!

Oriflame Mirage Eau De Parfum

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Oriflame Mirage Eau De Parfum. Mirage contains the following notes: elemi, orange and mandarin (top notes), vetiver, rose and jasmine (heart notes), and amber, sandalwood and vanilla (base notes).

Mirage is one of those fragrances that cannot be described quickly or easily. It is spectacular. It is unique. I’d say this is the fragrance that Thierry Mugler (RIP, TM!) would have created for Moira Rose! The overall feel of Mirage is spicy, green, balsamic and mysterious. While vetiver and rose play important roles in this fragrant drama, the green, resinous and almost medicinal shades of the elemi note are the stars of the show. I can smell the elemi note on me for hours – and I’m loving it!

I think that Oriflame Mirage Eau De Parfum is one of the best fragrances I’ve ever had the pleasure of smelling. I will treasure my 50ml bottle (this means that I’ll use the fragrance, but I won’t waste it on random trips to the grocery store or the dentist, etc) because – unfortunately – Mirage has been discontinued. 😢
