2014 liegt in den letzten Zügen, das bedeutet, es ist Zeit euch meine Jahresfavoriten zu zeigen. Diese Produkte habe ich das Jahr über besonders geliebt und besonders oft benutz. (mehr …)
Last summer I spent a few days in Hamburg. In my hotel room there were some products by Rituals, which I really enjoyed using. So back home, I went to the Rituals shop in Dortmund (Thier Galerie) and bought some of their skin care. The products from the “Laughing Buddha Range” are by far my favourites. Today, I want to show you the shower oil and the body cream.
Fortune Oil Sweet Orange & Cedar Wood, 8,50€
This caring shower oil transforms into a soft foam when you rub it on your skin and leaves it incredibly soft. Especially in winter I prefer shower oils to gels, because they are better for dry skin. It smells AMAZING, like fresh spicy oranges. The bottle contains 200ml, but it’s pretty efficient, so that you don’t need much and it will last long.
Touch of Happiness, 6,50€
This is actually a mini size of the rich and nourishing body cream, which contains 70ml. It smells like sweet orange and cedar wood – a very warm fragrance. I mostly use this cream for my hands, because the shower oil is rich enough, so that you don’t necessarily need to use a cream. My hands become very velvety after applying it.
Rituals is a pretty young brand, which was founded in 2000. The products are not tested on animals and are all suitable for vegetarians. The prices are slightly higher, but I think everyone needs a little bit of luxury every now and then.
Do you know Rituals? Which products are your favourites?
October is almost over that means it’s time to write something about my monthly favourites. To mix it up a little bit, I will show you my beauty favourites and also my general life favourites.
1. MAC Blush “Fleur Power”, 23,50€
This is a colour that goes with everything. Although it’s pink, it’s not THAT bright, so you can use it in October as well as in May. I like it especially for its staying power, it stays on the whole day.
2. Maybelline Jade The Rocket Volum’ Express Mascara, 9,99€
I love this mascara! I have quite short lashes and it gives them a great volume and length. I have had a lot more expensive mascaras in the past and they don’t do their job as good as the Rocket mascara.
3. EOS Lipbalm “Mint”, 4$
I can’t imagine living without this little green thing. It is such a great Lipbalm with great moisture. I bought in in New York and I’m sad that I got only this one. I use it once every day when I go to bed and that’s enough because my lips stay super soft.
4. Catrice Eyeshadow “Oh It’s Toffeeful!”, 2,79€
Normally, I’m not a eyeshadow person. I don’t wear it often, but this month I bought this golden one from Catrice and have used it a lot. I like that the shimmer is very subtle and elegant with no glitter in it.
5. Essence Long Lasting Lipstick “Natural Beauty”, 2,29€
I bought this lipstick a few weeks ago as you can see in my latest Haul. It’s a great my-lips-but-better colour for everyday and I wore it al lot in october. The staying power isn’t the best, but it’s ok.
1. TV Series “Castle”
When I saw the first two episodes of Castle I hated it, but then I got used to it and now I’m obsessed. I watched the first three seasons in October and now I’m already watching the fourth. Special thanks to my lovely friend Lisa, who infected me <3
2. Yankee Candles
For me it’s hard to find good candles, unfortunately I get headaches from most of them. But with the Yankee ones I’m fine. I can’t really decide which flavour is my favourite, but this month I have been liking Sandalwood Vanilla and White Christmas a lot.
3. Teekanne Hüttentraum
I’m a huge tea lover. I drink a lot more tea than coffee. When I’m sitting in front of my laptop I always have a cup of tea beside me. This flavour is very wintery and tastes like oranges and grapes. I have used up almost two packages this month!
