September Beauty Awards

Hi there! Today’s post is about all the beauty products I loved the most this past month. Read on to see the favourites (and there are a few honourable mentions further down as well). 🙂

3rd place – L’Oréal Triple Resist Reinforcing Shampoo & Conditioner

L’Oréal did a great job with these hair products. I’m a fan!

Runner-Up – Astor Rouge Couture Lipsticks

Astor’s Rouge Couture lipsticks were amazing. It’s too bad the entire collection has been discontinued.

WINNER – Zatik Rosehip & Black Seed Organic Oil Serum

Zatik’s facial oil is simply fantastic! It’s a new beauty favourite, and I know it’ll serve me well over the colder months ahead.

Onto the honourable mentions! M&S The Fragrance Collection Peony & Rhubarb Eau De Toilette almost made it into the top 3. Superdrug’s Anti-Ageing Moisture Mask was a very nice surprise, and Skin Treats’ Olive Oil Mask was lovely too!

There were a few other products I’ve enjoyed a lot (and still enjoy), but I’ve limited myself to 6 favourites this month.

Have you tried any of these products, or would you like to give them a try? Which products have you been loving lately? Feel free to get in touch via the comments, and thanks for reading! 😘

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Zatik Rosehip & Black Seed Organic Oil Serum

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Zatik Rosehip & Black Seed Organic Oil Serum which is aimed at people with dry and mature skin. This oil serum promises intense hydration for soft and radiant skin.

This serum oil is actually an oil blend – it contains a number of certified organic oils such as black seed, rosehip, jojoba, argan, etc. and vitamin E. On the pack it reads that these oils are rich in vitamin C, and that the oil blend is lightweight. People with dry skin are supposed to use the oil twice daily, all other skin types just in the morning.

I’ve been using this facial oil on and off for a over a month now, and I think it’s amazing. It works absolute wonders for dry skin! 😍 And the natural ingredients are just wow!

Having said this, the oil is not lightweight at all – it’s incredibly rich, and if I use it every day, my skin will break out – I know because this happened to me within a week of using this product. I now use it 3-4 times a week, and this is the perfect dose for glowing skin. (It is for me, it might be different for you.)

All in all, I love this product, and I will continue to use it. And based on my experience, I’d recommend it to everyone with dry skin. Just check the label to make sure you’re not allergic to any of the ingredients.

Zatik Rosehip & Black Seed Organic Oil Serum is available as 30ml. I paid £5.99 (TK Maxx). This product is certified cruelty-free. It carries the Leaping Bunny logo!
