I know I am super late to the party but life has been so busy recently and the lack of daylight after I get home from work made it rather impossible to shoot nice pictures. But enough of the excuses, today I present to you my favorite products from the month of September! September is usually my favorite month: gorgeous sunlight, leaves turning orange, perfect temperatures and of course, my birthday. You will have seen my birthday make-up here if you are interested! So apart from these products, of course, the whole month has been a favorite!
Rituals – Zensation Foaming Shower Gel
This smells divine! The organic rice milk and cherry blossom combination is luxurious, foams up gently under the shower and an absolute treat. One of my best friends gave this to me for my birthday and I have been loving this as a my special sunday shower gel, making me feel relaxed to ensure a good night rest. It makes a great gift (duh) and is an absolute recommendation!
The Body Shop – Body Butter
Another gift from previously mentioned friend. A detailed post on this is coming your way this week, but I wanted to introduce it on the blog here already as well. Those Body Butters are so rich and creamy in texture, making the skin feel lovely soft and moisturized even days after applying it. I don’t really like any other scents at the Body Shop apart from this as they’re mostly too sweet for my liking, but this Olive version makes me feel and smell clean, just what I want. I apply this at night and let it sink in over night but it also works if you apply a thin layer after your morning shower.
Zara Handsoap – Ginger Lily
Probably THE best attribute of my new room is the own bathroom that comes with it. Even before I had moved in I already rushed to Zara to buy myself a lovely soap which nobody but me would use. I know I’m quite strange when it comes to that department but these kinds of products and rituals just give me so much satisfaction that I like to embrace them. This smell is lovely and lingers around for quite a bit. It’s flowery and sweet, but not overly overpowering.
The Body Shop – Vitamin E Overnight Serum-In-Oil
As the temperatures are dropping my skin is getting drier by the day. I have pretty normal skin but in the past years I have noticed to get really dry and flaky patches around my forehead and cheeks so I am currently preventing that from happening by applying this as my last step in my nighttime skincare routine. It is very moisturizing, smells lovely and doesn’t make my face feel too greasy. It is completely absorbed by the skin by the next morning and I am currently crossing my fingers that there won’t be any dry patches in the weeks to come!
L’Occitane – 20% Shea Butter Hand Cream
This is hands down the best hand cream I have ever tried! The smell is super nice, again slightly powdery yet still fresh and subtle. It sinks in super fast and provides good moisture throughout the day. I get quite dry hands in the colder months, causing the skin on my fingers to crack (I know, not a pretty sight!) and this really does a good job at keeping those areas more or less soft. I will probably repurchase this hand cream over and over again and was so incredibly happy when my godaunt gifted me the full size version for my birthday.
Giorgio Armani – Luminous Silk Foundation
If you’re looking for a full review on this product click here, but in short: I’ve been using this foundation most mornings during the month of September and loved it! The finish is gorgeous, a matte yet still radiant look and has great longevity. Sometimes I look into the mirror at 4 at work and am surprised as to how good this still holds up. No show of wear and nothing has come off. Definitely a new holy grail product in my make-up stash!
Bobbi Brown – Peony Blush
While throughout summer I enjoyed using my Sephora Blush in Orange Pop I noticed myself reaching for this pink shade more often throughout September. It’s a really pretty pink that is highly pigmented so you’re gonna wanna go in rather lightly handed! I think it really compliments blue eyes and blonde hair without creating that stereotypical Barbie reference. I am almost hitting pan and when I run out of this I will definitely be repurchasing it!
Now on to you, what have been your favorite products for the month of September? Please share your products or leave me links to your posts, I am always curious to try out new things!
