October Beauty Awards

Hi there! It’s the last working day of the month, so today’s post is about all the products I loved the most in October. Let me start with the TOP 3, and there will be a few honourable mentions as well!

3rd place – L’Oréal Elvive Colour Protect Caring Shampoo & Conditioner

This shampoo and conditioner combo is an all-time favourite.

Runner-Up – Esfolio Hyaluronic Acid With Peach Essence Mask Sheet
WINNER – Westlab Himalayan Salt Cleansing Bath & Shower Gel

I love this Esfolio face mask. It’s such a treasure! I’m so glad I have 10 of these!
Westlab knocked it out of the park with their Himalayan Salt shower gel. I love it! A sure beauty staple from now on!

Onto the honourable mentions! Original Source did a great job with their Green Banana & Bamboo Milk and Sweet Apple & Vanilla Milk shower gels as they are moisturising indeed! Skin Treats Star Glitter Moisturising Peel Off Face Mask was such a nice surprise – what a powerful peel-off mask!

2 more shout-outs to Skin Techniques Pomegranate Infused Sheet Mask and Farm Skin Green Tea Soothing Sheet Mask – both of these masks were awesome!

Westlab Himalayan Salt Cleansing Bath & Shower Gel, Westlab Dead Sea Salt Soothing Bath & Shower Gel

Hi there! Today’s post is about Westlab Himalayan Salt Cleansing Bath & Shower Gel and Westlab Dead Sea Salt Soothing Bath & Shower Gel. According the manufacturer, these shower gels are 97% natural, vegan and cruelty-free. 😍

Let’s start with Westlab Himalayan Salt Cleansing Bath & Shower Gel! Wow, what a wonderful surprise! This shower gel is simply amazing. It has a subtle lemony, soapy and bath-salty scent. Lovely! The formula is fantastic too. It feels cleansing but not drying, and it leaves my skin feeling nice and balanced. What’s not to love?

Onto Westlab Dead Sea Salt Soothing Bath & Shower Gel! Whilst this shower gel is nice too, I didn’t like that it hardly smells of anything. If you prefer shower gels which are almost scent-free, this is one to try as it’s cleansing but also gentle on the skin.

Westlab Himalayan Salt Cleansing Bath & Shower Gel and Westlab Dead Sea Salt Soothing Bath & Shower Gel are available as 400ml for £2.99. I paid £1.99 each (Save 1/3 offer at Boots).
