Favourite Products of 2011

Sunday, January 1, 2012
I really enjoyed choosing products for this post and I decided to pick 12, which is kind of cool since there's twelve months in a year (oh, really? Anna, you're so smart!). I don't have many makeup favourites, but there's plenty of skincare... I really do absolutely adore each and every one of these products and would recommend them anytime. ;)

I discovered and rediscovered some great skincare products last year and I really do recommend trying these out - they're not too expensive too (maybe except the face mist, The Body Shop is quite pricey here in Estonia).
Nivea Visage Pure Effect Daily Deep Cleansing Wash Scrub - it smells so nice and fresh and my skin feels really clean after using this. It removes my makeup (even non-waterproof mascara) and makes my skin nice, soft and even a bit glowy. It costs something around 5 euros, so next time you go out to pick a new daily cleanser, maybe try this one out.
The Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist - I use this every day to set my makeup and also throw it in my bag to freshen up my makeup during the day. It's so nice and refreshing, especially during colder months when skin can get a little too try and tight. I really recommend trying this face mist, I believe it's much cheaper than M.A.C Fix Plus.
Lush Mask of Magnaminty - review HERE.
L'Oreal Hydrafresh Active Moisturising Gel Cream - smells great, moisturises well (yet is not too greasy), doesn't break me out and works as a great base for makeup. Kind of everything I want my daily moisturiser to be. I won't be trying other creams any time soon. Although I really wish they'd put this in a tube - the heavy glass container is annoying since I travel quite much.
Huggies Pure babywipes - I love them! They remove all my makeup and are especially great for removing mascara and eyeliner. If I have any eyeliner or mascara left after washing my face, they remove all of it. They're also great for cleaning my makeup tools (not brushes tho) and I also use them to wipe my dusty TV sometimes... So they really are great to have! And make sure you get the Pure ones!

Lee Stafford Bling Hair Rehab Shampoo - I have a weird relationship with this shampoo. :D You see, when I'm rinsing this out, my hair screams for a conditioner, but I don't use one. And then my hair is perfect. I have quite thin and fine hair and I really don't enjoy my hair most of the time, but with this shampoo, I've never had a bad hair day. I feel like it gives me some volume and a better hold. I really love this shampoo, but I do know it's not for everyone. But I've NEVER had a bad hair day after using this.
The Body Shop body butters - I know they're expensive, but I really love them! There's something about these tubes and smells that I just can't resist. On the picture is my newest one that I got for free, since I spent over 35 euros at The Body Shop (yes, I went to spend my Christmas gift cards as soon as possible... :D). If you ever get a good deal on TBS body butters, do try them out. Shea one is great for dry skin (elbows, knees, heels), lemon, cherry and satsuma smell absolutely delicious... I'm sad that they don't have raspberry and papaya anymore, I really enjoyed these too...
Only two makeup favourites, but you can't really blame me, since I only recently got into makeup.
Nars blush in "Orgasm" - I know it's the mos famous NARS blush and everyone and their mother has heard about this, but it really is great! It has gorgeous golden shimmer in it and it compliments every skintone. I recently hit pan, which makes me quite sad, but I've used it almost every day since May and I still have so much left, so you do get what you pay for. Love love LOVE this blush!!!
Rimmel Lasting Finish lipsticks - I have "Royalty", "Airy Fairy", "Pink Champagne" and 02 from Kate Moss collection and I love them all! They're creamy and stay on for a decent amount of time. They're also afforable and I really like how they smell. Nice, affordable lipsticks with quite a few shades to choose from. My current favourite is definitely "Royalty", since purple lips really compliment my skintone.
Versace Bright Crystal - this is my favourite perfume and if you haven't smelled this, you have to! It's sweet, yet fresh... Some might think it's too overpowering, but I love this! Every time I spray this on, it makes me feel really good. :)
My two favourite nail polishes of last year are OPI "Opi Ink." and Make Up Store "Monica". Posts HERE and HERE. ;)

I'm excited to start a new year with new beauty products to try out. What are your favourites?

Valisin 12 lemmikut, mida sel aastal enim kasutanud, nautinud või uuesti ostnud olen. Paraku vaid kaks meigitoodet, kuid see-eest üpris korralik sületäis nahahooldustooteid. ;)
Nivea Visage Pure Effect Daily Deep Cleansing Wash Scrub - lõhnab mõnusalt ja värskelt ning nahk on pärast pehme ja särav. Saab ka meigist korralikult lahti, kui tegu pole just paksu foto- või õhtumeigiga.
The Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist - tuleb tunnistada, et see pole just soodsaim toode, mina ostsin selle kui E-vitamiini tooted olid allahinnatud ja ka siis pidin umbes 9 eurot maksma. Aga see on väga mõnus sprei, millega meiki "kinnitada" ja päeva jooksul värskendada - eriti külmemal ajal, kui nahk kipub pisut kuiv ja "kiskuv" olema. Kui olete mõelnud mõne näosprei soetamisele, siis mu esimene soovitus oleks kindlasti see.
Lush Mask of Magnaminty - arvustus SIIN. :)
L'Oreal Hydrafresh Active Moisturising Gel Cream - lõhnab hästi, niisutab hästi ja nahk näib mõnus ja puhanud. See pole liiga rasvane ja imendub korralikult, mistõttu sobib hästi ka meigialuseks kreemiks. Mulle väga meeldivad L'Oreali kreemid ja ma soovitaks neid kindlasti - ainult raske klaaspurk on tüütu, sest ma pean oma meigi- ja nahahooldusasjadega üpris tihti kaugemale trippima.
Huggies Pure niisked (beebi)salvrätikud - ühed neist asjadest, milleta ma tõepoolest enam elada ei oskaks. Need eemaldavad korralikult kogu jumeka ja silmameigi! Ma pesen küll iga kord korralikult nöopuhastusvahendiga meigi maha, kuid viimse silmalaineri ja ripsmetuši saan maha just nendega. Pure salvrätikud on lõhnatud ja kasutan neid ka meigitoodete (mitte pintslite) puhastamiseks ja kui aus olla... Siis olen nendega ka televiisorilt ja riiulilt tolmu võtnud. :D
Lee Stafford Bling Hair Rehab šampoon - Selle šampooniga on mul kummaline suhe... Loputades karjuvad mu juuksed palsami järele, kuid ma ei kasuta palsamit. Järgmisel päeval hoiavad mu juuksed aga täpselt nii nagu ma tahan - mu juuksed on õhukesed ja hoiavad peadligi, kuid see lisab neile kohevust ja hoidvust. Ainus miinus on see, et juuksed pole pärast kuigi säravad, pigem tuhmid. Ent mul pole selle šampooniga kordagi "halbade juuste päeva" olnud!
The Body Shopi kehavõid - ma olen nendest sõltuvuses - jah, tõenäoliselt niisutaks mitmeid kordi odavam Nivea või Dove'i kreem sama hästi, kuid miski lihtsalt tõmbab mind The Body Shop'i lõhnade ja pakendite poole... Need on Eestis üpris kallid, mis on muidugi suur miinus, kuid ma armastan neid! Shea oma on suurepärane kuivale nahale (küünarnukid, põlved, kannad, käed), sidrun ja satsuma lõhnavad imeliselt, samuti Japanese Cherry Blossom (mu noormehe lemmik)... Kui käpa peale saate ja hind liiga krõbe pole (näiteks välismaal), siis soovitan kindlasti!
NARS põsepuna "Orgasm" - tean, et kõik ilutüdrukud ja nende emadki on sellest põsepunast kuulnud, kuid see on lihtsalt imeline. Peenike kuldne sära ja imeilus virsikukarva toon sobivad hästi nii heledamale kui pisut tohkem päevitunud nahale. Imeline põsepuna, mida jään kasutama kindlasti väga pikalt! Jah, see maksab üpris palju, kuid sain enda oma maikuus, olen seda kasutanud praktiliselt iga päev ja alles on veel üle poole. ;)
Rimmel Lasting Finish huulepulgad - minul on toonid "Royalty", "Pink Chapagne", "Airy Fairy" ja 02 Kate Mossi kollektsioonist ja ma armastan neid kõiki - Rimmeli huulepulgad on kindlasti väga taskukohased, hea katvuse ja täitsa kobeda püsivusega. Mu hetkelemmik on "Royalty", sest mulle tundub, et lillad huuled lihtsalt sobivad mulle. :)
Versace Bright Crystal - mu läbi aegade lemmik parfüüm, muud polegi öelda. Magus, samas värske ja naiselik... Ma jumaldan seda parfüümi ja iga kord kui seda endale peale lasen, tõuseb mu tuju vähemalt viie palli võrra. :)
OPI "Opi Ink." ja Make Up Store "Monica" küünelakid - kui ma varem polnud sädelevatest küünelakkidest erilises vaimustuses, siis 2011. aasta lõpupoole avastasin enda jaoks nende võlu. :) Just need kaks jäid mulle enim silma, mõlemast on pildid SIIN ja SIIN.

Ongi kõik, eks näis, milliseid uusi tooteid uus aasta toob! Millised on teie lemmikud? :)

  1. the exact same babywipes and mask of magnaminty are one of my favorites too, as well as angel nails by max factor, which is similar to monica (prettty!). however, i wanted to ask about the nivea cleanser - how's the ingredient list? and do you remember how much the TBS face mist was, approximately?
    happy new year :)

  2. Uh, I believe the face mist costs 10+ euros... Unfortunately I threw the empty bottle away (I had already kept it for two weeks just to have it for the picture), so you'll just have to google it or check the stores. Sorry. :(

  3. The last sentence was about the cleanser. :)

  4. Clinique'i high impact mascara on mu lemmik kõigil aastatel, mil seda kasutanud olen, aga rohkem ei oskagi kohe midagi välja tuua, kuna olen suurema osaga oma kosmeetikast igati rahul olnud.. ah jaa, TBS seaweed cleansing toner on ka super!
    igatahes põnev postitus, ja hakkasin mõtlema, et peaks ka kunagi Lee Staffordi tooteid proovima vist :P
