Five beauty products worth the hype…

There is nothing worse than spending your own hard-earned money on a particular beauty product that is not worth it… That is even more painful if the product in question is on a pricy side.

Over the years, I have made that mistake on several occasions. I have also tried product that I liked and would use again but only a few became my holly grails. I am more than happy to share them with you today and I promise that if you decide to give any of them a chance, you would not be disappointed !

I discovered both products on one of the YouTube channels I follow and decided to try both for myself. I had high hopes but the reality was even better. They are by far the best shampoo and conditioner combo I have ever used !

They make your hair unbelievable smooth and shiny and somehow healthier looking. I like the texture, the smell, the fact that they are made from natural ingredients and that they are sulphates-free.

I am a huge fan of cleansing balms and tried a lot (I mean a lot !)… This one is probably the most luxurious yet still more affordable than others.

It takes all the make up off in one go and leaves my skin fresh and moisturized. It has the right consistency and texture without any artificial fragrance or colorants. I love everything about this product and I cannot recommend it strong enough !

I wanted to try this one for a long time and when I finally did I liked it instantly. Firstly, due to very luxurious packaging and nice, thick consistency. Overtime, I discovered that my under-eye area is much smoother and defiantly less discoloured.

It is not the cheapest of the eye creams but it is by far the best one I have ever tried !

I really do not like to fake tan. I am not keen on the smell and the fact that most fake tanning products make my skin dry and itchy. This one is different… It is an oil to start with and somehow makes the tanning process easier and more enjoyable.

The tan is very natural looking, never yellow and stays on my skin longer than anything else. I like the packaging too and as you only need small amount this one is fairly reasonable priced too !

I wanted to keep this post fairly skin care based but this one was so obvious to me than I could not resist. It is tinned moisturizer by Nars (I currently use the matte version but they are both equally as good !).

It is very light cream-foundation with a good coverage so much so that my colleague at work was really surprise when I told her that I have no foundation on !

It has a natural finish, moisturizes my skin and never leaves it dry and uncomfortable. A clear winner and a long favourite of mine…

Fifty posts… statistics and what next ?

When I wrote my first blog post, I had no idea if anyone will read it or be interested in what I want to show you. It took a few weeks but after my Bangkok post I have realised that same of my fellow bloggers are checking what I have posted !

I have mentioned before that nothing gives me as much pleasure as knowing that a new reader checked out my website especially from a new to me country or place I have never been to. No words can describe the satisfaction you get from the kindness and encouragement from your readers and followers. As a lot of my friends have been asking how is it going with the development of my blog I thought I will let you know !

Why blogging ?

When I started my blogging journey I had no idea where I am going to go with this… I sat down one Saturday afternoon and came up with this website, with no clear plan what to do next.

I did some YouTube videos before and initially my plan was to this blog in order to support my YouTube channel. The reality turned up to be very different. I soon realised that I enjoy blogging more than anything else. I am still going to try my luck with YouTube, but this blog is my main priority.

It is so good to be able to express myself on a different level. Creating outfits and taking pictures is something that gives me a lot of pleasure. During the week I have to keep my head straight and fulfil my professional duties but on the weekend I can use my creative site and experiment.

I am never been about countless amount of hauls and tons of new purchases every month. That is not what I am about. I want to show you how to buy good quality items and use them, treat them with respect and re-cycle season after season. More on that philosophy and my fashion journey available here.

I get really excited when I see that people from different countries have visited me (from Madagascar to Argentina…) and every time I had a view from a country that I have not seen before, I cannot resist to share that with my work colleagues.

Interacting with other bloggers and my readers gives me a huge pleasure and inspiration. I try to stay within topics I love and I am interested in like fashion and beauty but I will maybe introduce some health related posts like one here.

Please let me know if you have any suggestions on what would you like to read ?

I will see you tomorrow for the What I wore Sunday and I can say that the pictures we took are probably my favourites ever so stay tuned for that !

As usual love,

Aggie xx
