I’m not a big fan of these autumn months. They bring bad weather and I’m constantly cold, clients start burning budgets which means long hours and a lot of traveling, and the Christmas time seems a million of years away. But I am trying not to be too depressed by all this and search for happiness in little things. And here are five products that made me smile in October – a very pink month, obviously.
As I already mentioned, I dyed my hair brown a couple of weeks ago and the hairdresser was furious with me because of the condition of my hair. She suggested that I use some natural oil on my hair, which I am doing, but I still cannot my paws off my Syoss Glossing Shine Sealing Finish Fluid. It’s a big name for a great product. I take a drop or two of this, rub it into the bottom half and the tips of my hair and it gets an instant healthier and shinier look to them, while also taking some frizz away as an extra bonus. I will say that since it is oil based, it will make your hair feel greasier after a couple of days. Still, I think it’s a great product. I’ve picked it up in E. Leclerc for about 9 € and it will probably last me more than a year, so it’s great value for money as well.
Fall makes me want to dig into my stash and pull out some darker nail colors, while also tempting me to buy new ones. This month’s favorite is Bahama Mama by Essie, which doesn’t sound very autumnal, but I personally love it for this time of year. It’s a deep, dark plum color and would probably look fantastic with some brighter nail art on it as well.
Bourjois Happy Light matte serum primer has been my recent substitute for the Maybelline Baby Skin. Since I’m wearing more and more heavy moisturizers as the days grow cold and the air gets dry from the heating, I need a mattifying primer to take the shine away. This primer is great at doing that. It does feel somewhat heavy and it’s difficult to apply in small quantities since it dries so fast, but my face stays matte for about 12 hours without having to reapply any mattifying powder or use oil sheets. I got this at Asos on sale for about €12.
I bought the beautiful pink Essence Studio Nails nail corrector pen a while back and since I’m not too clumsy with my nail polish I’ve barely gotten through the first tip (I think there are 2 or 3 extra still waiting for me). At this rate, the nail polish remover will probably dry up before I am done with the tips, but for this price (I think it was about €2?), it’s absolutely worth it. For extra bonus, it nourishes your nails with jojoba oils and does not smell, probably since it is infused with Acai berry aroma.
Last up is the Make-up Revolution Anti-bacterial brush shampoo. I’ve loved this since the first time I’ve used it but I wanted to go through the paces and see if my brushes love it as much as I do. Now that I’m sure of that I can definitely declare it my favorite. It has been about 10 washes of 30 brushes now and I’m not even half way through the bottle which was about €7 at Licila.si.
