Beauty Empties

Here are the list of my beauty empties on it’s six month mark. And this time its all about skin care products that I run out since for the last 4/5 months that’s what all I have been using. I really haven’t worn makeup almost all the time or just during the weekends for the past four weeks. My main focus at the past couple of months was my skin and living a healthy life style. Which in some point I am really happy on how my skin looks and feels at the moment and I really need less makeup since my skin looks really nice. Most of the skincare products especially moisturizer have been used by me and my hubby at the same time. Almost all of the products mentioned below been reviewed on the blog.

Cleansers

  • Eve Lom Cleanser have been one of the most used and amazing cleansers that I have been in love. I pretty much used it the days I really needed to remove my makeup, reviewed here. Its gentle and works great on dry skin.
  • Rodial Vit C Brightening Cleanser was really nice hydrating and brightening cleanser with soft and silky touch. It lather up nicely without foaming much, it carries a nice gel like texture that was really gentle on my skin and doesn’t leave skin super dry.
  • Shiseido Benefiace Extra Creamy Cleansing Foam is another best cleanser I tried, This one was actually came in a gift with a purchase I did a while back but I never got to try it out. I am glad I tried it and it’s an absolutely best cleanser. It leaves skin squeaky clean with a super silky finish.

Moisturizers

  • La Prairie Platinum Life Lotion many of you know how much I loved this product. I have used this every single day last year and it really hanged on with my for quite some time. It adds a nice hydration and softness on skin that I am obsessed! On hot and humid summer days I only wore this and took me through my summer time nicely. Fully reviewed here. With this one a little goes a long way.
  • Decorte Moisture Liposome is one of the best hydrating serum I have tried. Its one of the serums that I probably reached out mostly last year and something I felt I didn’t need to replace it with some thing. Find the review post here.
  • Monat C Radiance Illuminating Serum another serum that I actually thought I run out of it fairly quickly for the fact that I loved it the most and I literally used it every single day as well as under my foundations too. If you’re looking for a Vitamin C serum this is the one you need to try. Fully reviewed here.
  • Decorte 24/7 Eye Cream one of my favorite especially on harsh dry winter months, reviewed here. I loved how it keeps the under eye area well hydrated all day long that you can actually see the radiance every time you look at the mirror. A little goes a long way with this eye cream.
  • La Prairie Skin Caviar Luxe Cream can’t get enough of the Skin Caviar line from La Prairie – reviewed here. There is something about this line that I absolutely love. The texture and formulation is perfect for my skin. Its definitely one of the luxurious skin care products I used.
  • Sulwhasoo Bloomstay Vitalizing Cream this is a moisturizer with a goodness. Its light yet feels super rich and with silky texture that goes really nice on skin. I feel this one is a perfect one during the transition time where you need something rich while light on skin. Full review here.
  • Eve Lom The Moisture Cream this one is super rich formulas that I needed during the winter time as well as perfect for as a transitional moisturizer -reviewed here. It worked nicely on my dry skin while I feel it its a bit too heavy for oily skin texture.
  • It Cosmetics Confidence in a Cream this have been one of my all time favorite moisturizer. Its one of the most simple yet effective moisturizer that I can reach all year long. Reviewed here. This one me and my hubby both been using at the same time.
  • It Cosmetics Secret Sauce this one is my hubby’s favorite and he has gone through 3 jars already – full review here. It has a brightening effect yet very gentle since my hubby has a super sensitive skin (even more sensitive than mine). His skin can easily detect fragrance and any other harsh ingredients in skin care. Yet he have been loving this one for a brightening effect that it offers for his dry skin.
  • La Prairie Cellular Swiss UV Protection is one of the best sunscreen I have ever tried. The product that I can swear by its effectiveness and amazing wear that it offers. My skin starts glowing when I top this in the morning while it doesn’t leave a white cast with a lovely scent.

Shower & Body

  • Nuxe Prodigieux Shower Oil is a nice hydrating shower oil that adds a nice sheen finish to the skin and smells Devine – full review here. This is some thing that I have my mind in repurchasing.
  • Jouviavce coconut Melting Balm is one of my favorite hydrating body moisturizers I have ever tried. I do use them on my kids on winter for the fact that its the most safest moisturizers – fully reviewed here. I have already gone two jars and I am definitely going to get one for this winter time.
  • Joico Hydra Splash Shampoo is one of the hair shampoos I have gone through and been really nice to my hair especially during the spring time.

Extras

  • La Vie EST Belle L’eclat EAU De Parfum I do have a great selection of fragrances and I don’t easily run out of the fragrance. Yet this one have been the one that layers beautifully with all other fragrances and with amazing lasting power. I have been using this as a base almost with all my other fragrances. Fully reviewed here.
  • It Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil is probably one of the brow products that I have gone through this time. I always like to make sure my face is framed and I find this is one of the easiest brow products that gives a nicely framed brow with a perfect shade that doesn’t look over done.

Currently in My Shower | Hair & Body Care Routine..

Processed with VSCO with al3 preset

Many of you wanted to know what I currently use in my shower especially many questions on my hair and body care routine. I do change my hair and body care twice a year for spring/summer and fall/winter. This post will take care of what I am currently using as my spring/summer routine.

Hair Care

Haircare Treatments & Oils ..

I have a super dry hair so oils and hair treatments are always an essential for my routine even on hottest summer days. Masks are my favorite way to add in hydration on my hair. I try to use it at least once a week (I wash my hair twice a week), especially the days I know I’ll enhance my natural hair without using hot tools. It allows my hair to repair and demolish any damages I make when styling. Here are a list of Hair treatments I am loving at the moment.
I do not use conditioner almost all the times, instead I use Masks to add hydration and softens my hair.

Oribe Moisture & Control Deep Treatment Hair Masque has been a favourite of mine this year, especially when I want more definition on my wavy/curly hair. A little goes a long way with this product. I tend to work on my ends than roots that way it doesn’t way down my hair.

SerirExpert Nourishing Hair Mask Blondifier L’Oreal Expert Professionnel is another mask that I use to maintain my hair color from turning into brassiness, yet at the same time, it nourishes and adds shine to the hair.

Kerastase Nutritive 8H Magic Night Serum is an amazing repair serum that works like wonders. Although it’s meant to be used at night time as a leave-in treatment some times when I see any kind of dryness on my hair ends I just add some as a finishing touch and it really works well. I think everyone should own this.

Joico Defy Damage Protective Masque is something that I have been loving when I see more damage on my hair. I do use this once a month all year long to keep my hair looking healthy.

Marc Anthony Instant Miracle Mask Detoxifying Clay Hair Mask is one for those with oily sculpt. This one is amazing when you need that extra hair left you to need. I do use it when I go out and style my hair for events.

Oils have always been part of my hair care routine for more than 17 years now and I find them treat hair and protect hair at the same time especially when using hot tools. I try to add oils first thing on my towelled dry hair and then I go with layering my hair care styling products. Here is a list of my favourite ones:

  1. Oribe Gold Lust Nourishing Hair Oil I got to try this year and I find it absolutely amazing. It’s lightweight yet I find it a bit richer texture. I love to use it starting from the ends and I find this one really protects the hair.
  2. Moroccanoil Treatment this is one of the hair oil treatments I initially started about 17 years ago and it’s still my favourite and can’t replace it with any other oil treatment especially during the wintertime.
  3. Kerastase Discipline Oleo-Relax Anti-Frizz Oil Serum I was introduced to this earlier this year and have been reaching out every time since then. It’s lightweight that doesn’t weigh hair down + adds shine and perfect for summertime.
  4. Cake Beauty The Gloss Boss is an amazing lightweight hair oil that I use as a finishing spray to add subtle shine without making my hair looking oily.
  5. Torreh Magic Drop is yet another non-greasy hair oil that I just got to try. It’s a super clean formula with a natural ingredient list that I absolutely love. I also got some treatment from them yet I haven’t got to try it. I will definitely report once on its results very soon.

Kerastase Soleil Nourishing After Sun Spray is something I am testing for the past two weeks and it’s been a good repairing solution. Its formula carries nourishing hair oil that protects the hair, adds shine and makes hair feel soft. I love how I can use this very easily and while on the go to get my natural hair protection and healthy finish.

Shampoos..

Oligo Professionnel: Blacklight Blue Shampoo is another item that I use once a week or every other week to maintain my hair colours. Probably one of my favourite blue shampoos that I give my hair that perfect balance.
I have been loving the Gold Lust Repair & Restore Shampoo from Oribe. I feel it squeaky clean my hair while doesn’t weigh down my hair and I feel my hair moves so nicely.
I also love the Tresemme Flawless Curls when I want to wear my curls. This has been a long-loved shampoo for my wavy hair. You really see the difference after using it a couple of times. It definitely adds definition to my curls.
From time to time I use the Dercos Anti-Dandruff Shampoo from Vichy when I feel my hair needs it. and that’s when I see some dandruff. I also loved the Joico Hydra Splash collection. The Shampoo is a good transition shampoo for this spring. It keeps the hair super hydrating while doesn’t weigh down the hair.

Styling Hair Products

Kerastase Genesis Fortifying Blow-dry Fluid is something I have been loving for the past month. It’s light and doesn’t feel like anything on hair yet really works on optimal hydration. I use this when I use my hot tools, just right before I use my hot tools and literally make my hair look smooth and healthy.

Joico’s Zero Heat Air Dry Styling Creme has made my life so easy while taking care of my frizzy hair during this time of year. I haven’t been using styling tools or styling my hair for this past couple of months (well at least not as much as I used to) and this product really minimizes the frizz look + it doesn’t feel crunch or stiff at all. Definitely adds a nice shine and defines curls smoothly.

Body Care

Body Washes and Oils

I do take shower every day after my workouts but I don’t wash my hair every. For that fact I like using body shower gels and oils that takes away the impurities while leaves my skin soft and smooth. Here are some I love the most:

  • Dr. Hauschka Rose Nurturing Body Wash been one of my favourite ones for this season. It’s a clean formula that I can use in the peace of mind for my everyday use and it’s quite nourishing, It lathers up like a foam yet I love how it doesn’t dry out my skin.
  • Nuxe Prodigieux Shower Oil has been another favourite that I just run out of it. It’s a clean formula again with a super nice scent that is absolutely pleasant. The texture feels more like a gel and doesn’t dry out skin at all.
  • The Loccitane Body Oil I have used is amazing. I love to use this during the wintertime yet from time to time I have been reaching out to this almost once a week.
  • BVspa by Bon Vital Salt Scrub is something I use from time to time to get rid of my dry and flaky skin. It’s not too harsh and not too gentle, it carries a good texture that exfoliates and nourishes the skin at the same time. I probably use this once a month.
  • Kiehl’s Creme de Corps is one of the amazing body creams that I have used so far yet I still love it during this season. It’s a rich formula but for my dry skin, it’s a perfect one.
  • Jouviance Hydractiv Coconut Melting Balm is one of my all-time favourite body moisturizers even on summer days. I use it all the time even on my kids. I find the formula is super clean and light that I can use it all the time.

I hope you find my spring/summer hair care round up helpful and find your way on how to take care of your hair and body during these seasons. I do have couple of items that I need to finish testing and share the results.
