Welcome to another 5 favourites in colour post!! When I gathered the goodies that I wanted to write about I realised that it was going to end up being more of a beauty post. But I wanted to share them none the less because I’ve been using some of these products for YEARS and really swear by them.
#2 – BLUE
Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue
I have developed a bit of an obsession for perfume ever since my Aunt brought me those miniature bottles from Saudi. She used to add it to my birthday gifts as a girl, and I’ve been collecting them over the years. It was so special to me to have those small intricate glass gems that contained these different scents. When I grew up and started strolling through the perfume isles, Light Blue became my all time favourite perfume. I am not one who favours floral, sweet scents; so I really enjoy the ones that are citrusy and reminds me of a cool ocean breeze.
Nivea products always remind me of my Mum. She’s been using their lotions ever since I can remember and when ever I get a wiff of their signature scent, I think of her. So naturally I’ve taken to their products too. I love the Soft Moisturising Cream because it is light, hydrating and smells clean and fresh. Their deodorants are also really good!
Dove Beauty Cream Bar
This soap is THE BEST! It is so gentle and effective. I have sensitive skin, so it can be difficult to find a product that doesn’t cause irritation or dry out my skin. I use this soap on my face and during those times when my skin just won’t behave, it helps to calm down any breakouts or blemishes. I have yet to come by a soap that offers this much moisturising properties while getting the job done too.
Dirty Works Eye Cream
Lately I have had some trouble with puffy circles under my eyes. About two months ago I was walking in Clicks, and I came across this eye cream from Dirty Works. The deciding factor on buying this product – besides the affordable price – was the light reflectors. It sounded like something that might work on my little problem so I grabbed it. I have to say that even though the packaging said everything I wanted to hear, I had my doubts on whether this would actually work for me. But it turned out to be one of my favourite purchases I’ve made this year. My eyes seem brighter and less tired which is exactly what I’ve been looking for, and did I mention the affordable price? (SCORE!!)
I always, always, ALWAYS have a box of these in my bathroom. It is a fast and very effective way to unclog pores, and you can literally see the results – which is totally disgusting and at the same time, quite satisfying. I have tried different brands, but I am currently using these which are also very good.
