My Beauty Must-Haves!

Hi beauties! Today I wanted to share with you my beauty must haves, those are products I use on a daily basis and that I couldn't live without. 

-Vichy Calming Cleansing Solution:
This is my everyday morning face wash and makeup remover. I have super dry, sensitive skin and this feels so gentle and calming (as it says actually!) I was using Bioderma before but it was a bit harsh for my skin and made my face red when I applied it, the Vichy one doesn't and even nicer than that it smells like fresh roses!

-Lush Grease Lightning:
This is simply a tea tree oil based gel. I rarely breakout but when I do, this is my lifesaver! Put this on your breakouts after washing your face at night but before moisturizing and the next morning you will see a huge difference. A nice plus: I had this bottle for nearly six months and it is a little less than half empty!

-Soap and Glory the Righteous Body Butter:
Oh my, if you haven't smelt any of the Soap and Glory product range, you are missing out on something! This specific one smells a lot like Miss Dior Chérie (if you know which perfume I am talking about). It is enough to keep the dry patches on my body at bay and I can still smell it hours after applying!

-Skin79 VIP Gold BB Cream:
This has quickly become a staple for me, I use it everyday under my foundation as a primer. Not only does it gives me extra coverage, it is a great sunscreen (SPF 30 PA++) and it also helped to fade a couple of acne scars that I had on my right cheek. As I said my skin is dry and this gives me the perfect amount of moisture during the day.

-Korres Lip Butter in Jasmim:
This lip butter is pure perfection. It smells sweet and flowery at the same time. I use this in the morning and before I go to bed and it never fails to make my lips baby soft. Whenever I am feeling too lazy to put on some lipstick I just slap that on and I'm good to go!

-Nars Blush in Gaiety:
This is a bright pink blue based blush, at first I was a bit worried that it would look insanely bright but boy was I wrong! Once applied to the face it looks sheer and gorgeous really. The fact that it's matte makes it even more wearable. It is definetly a go-to whenever I can't pick which blush to wear.

-ELF Eyebrow Kit in Medium:
No matter if I am wearing a lot of makeup or minimal makeup, I always fill in my eyebrows, it makes a huge difference. This product is simply amazing (3$?!), you can't beat that! I like this even better than my Urban Decay Brow Box (which btw costs 35$ here in Canada).

-Benefit High Beam:
This is hands dowm my most used makeup product since about two years or so. And yes, I am actually on my third bottle of this! Crazy, right? What makes this highlighter so special to me is that it isn't shimmery nor glittery, it adds a gorgeous dewy finish to the skin. If you are like me and have very fair skin, I can't recommend this enough!

So I hope that you all enjoyed this first post inauguring my blog. thanks for taking the time to visit xx
