Hello Ladies! Many of you asked me questions about my favorite cosmetics. So, I thought it was time to make a post about my beauty essentials. (I promised to do this once a month.) I'm a model, hereby my skin is very important. In this article you can see the products that I daily use and which I am very satisfied. If you guys are still looking for the perfect Christmas gift; for your sister, mother or friend... Than maybe this list can inspire you. Guarantee that you make them happy! ;) The pictures were taken in my girly dressing. As you can see, I have everything in pastel colors. Since I was a kid I was dreaming about a princess room. This is how my space turned out...Hope you like the pictures. ;)
For many of you the brand Filorga might sound unknown, but in France it's extremely popular. Why? Because Filorga is basically completely focused on anti-aging. Once they started with injectable medical anti-aging products, now they put the same pure ingredients in their anti-aging skin care. Filorga is also successful because of their lower price range. The most expensive product of Filorga costs 54€. I tried the mask and eye cream. The mask is a great sensation and the eye cream works against bosses, dark circles and fine lines. All I need after a hard week. ;) Can't live without them!
Philosophy Hope in a Jar Night is available in a pot of 60 ml and costs 43€. It is a magical product. The real magic takes place at night. When I wake up my skin looks so good! The first thing I noticed was that my face is radiant and smooth. It does exactly what I expect from a good night cream. Philosophy Hope in a Jar Night is exclusively available at ICI Paris XL.
The KENZOKI SPRAY Qui Fait Belle creates a nice coup d'éclat, healthy and well groomed skin. Besides the incredibly refreshing effect and the wonderful smell you can also use it to fix your makeup. I have it every day in my bag. :D
IOMA Youth Booster serum itself is pretty delish! It protects my skin, reduces discomfort and regenerates it. I just love it!
Qiriness is a Swiss beauty product range for the face. One of those balms is Le Wrap Temps Sublime. A global anti-aging mask that is specifically designed to deal with signs of skin aging. I now regularly use the mask and what particularly strikes me is that my skin feels really comfortable. <3
I already wrote about KIEHL'S products in my last beauty post (here). They are absolutely in my top 5!
RITUALS Ginger White Tea Essence is my new fragrance of the moment next to my Chanel n5. ;) I love the smell because it's so fresh and I can wear it for any occasion.
L'OCCITANE Immortelle Regenerating Concentrate is an evening serum that smoothes and firms.
The Immortelle Divine Lotion is a rich texture and subtle aromatic scent of fresh Immortelle flowers. This softening lotion gives the skin an immediate sensation of supreme comfort and leaves it deliciously supple. It is a liquid smooth essence which absorbs really quickly into the skin to prepare you for your next beauty product. Me and my mother use these products and we are both happy with the result! :D
The L'OCCITANE Passionate Jasmine Lip Balm contains 10% of shea butter with a distinctive jasmine scent. It is pretty present, but not overwhelming. The balm has a slick texture and glossy finish. It works well during daytime but I performed the ultimate lip balm test of putting it on before bedtime: it still works well! I have to say this is quite rare cuz a lot of lip balms simply dry out during the night and my lips are still asking for more. Passionate Jasmine Lip Balm is still largely there when I wake up in the morning and my lips are velvety soft and hydrated! In short, this looks great (glossy) if you want to use it during daytime and it really works to protect the lips when you’re asleep. It’s a winner!
The Immortelle Divine range is available at all L'Occitane boutiques. Visit the shop whenever you are at the mall. I urge you to try out the Divine Cream on your hand. It is hard not to fall in love with just the texture.
MAC Talk That Talk Lipstick and lashes are my favourites of the moment! First of all the packaging is gorgeous! I feel so glamorous grabbing the tube out of my purse to touch up my lips. ;) Rihanna’s signature is etched in the tube just like the others lipsticks from the collection. Talk That Talk is a deep plum with slight red undertones. I love it!
The NYC 5 in 1 BB Crème gives a natural look. I like to wear it during the day with some mascara.
Chanel Base Lumiere is my absolute favorite! It contains no shimmers but it imparts a really beautiful glow to your skin, gives a “your own radiant skin but better” effect. I'm also using Chanel's loose powder, blush and my YSL lipsticks. You can find more details about these products in my previous beauty post (here).
These are my two new babies. I love the smell of JIMMY CHOO's perfume FLASH, therefrom these two products. A body lotion and shower gel. My husband also think they smell great. ;)
I believe in PiNk :)
Don't forget to spread the love <3 Lima xoxo
