FEBRUARY FAVORITES

Being an architecture student and making models can take a toll on your manicure. I had to cut my nails off completely, so I spent most of February trying to nurse my nails back to health. A few other items quickly became my favorites as well.

I have been using the same anti-perspirant for about 6 years – Dove’s Go Fresh with cucumber and green tea. I loved its scent so much that I had no need to try out anything else until I decided to stop using it because of its toxic ingredient – aluminum chlorohydrate. A week into February I needed a new deodorant so I walked by the Dove stand to smell this beauty. Then I realized that they turned the anti-perspirant into a deodorant and removed the aluminum salt from its ingredients. I was absolutely thrilled and purchased it immediately. The rest of the ingredients is by no means perfect, but I feel safer knowing I’m not exposed to aluminum chlorohydrate.

Bourjois’s lipstick in Rose Tweed hasn’t left my handbag all month. I loved wearing this daytime shade as it goes well with just about anything.

Moa’s Green Balm has made the cut – once again. I will from now on stop including it in my monthly favorites as I feel way too repetitive. This balm will heal shaving cuts and iritation incredibly quickly.

When it comes to slick hairstyles like buns and ponytails, a dense teasing brush is a must have. I used the Sleep-In Rollers Backcombing Brush (ordered from feelunique.com) to comb back flyaways. Although it’s not necessarily something I do, this brush would also be perfect for teasing to create volume.

Essie’s Millionails strengthening base is a polish I religiously used every other day. I was also happy to see it doesn’t contain formaldehyde like many other strengthening base coats. My nails are now back to normal and are steadily growing longer.

The nail file by Ebelin, a very cheap but effective tool, was also part of my nail routine. I used its soft sides to smooth down my nail beds and give them shine.

    i meni je prije, dok sam koristila Dove deodoranse, taj s krastavcem bio najbolji. sad sam se prebacila na Garnier, i već cca 3 godine sam mu vjerna.
    ja kao bazu koristim eveline 8u1, on nažalost sadrži formalaldehid :/, ali nisam još našla bazu koja mi tolko dobro učvrsne nokte ko ova.
    od rašpica mi je odlična Alessandro (roza), traje mi po godinu dana. :)

  • Rose Tweed has been on my wish list forever but now that I have been transitioning to natural make up I’ve been trying Ilia’s lipsticks. But I LOVE Rose Tweed…I should look at the ingredients…check if there are any nasty things in it. :)

  • Mala Palčica

    Ja se ne odvajam od Neutro Roberts dezića, miris mi je najdraži od svih a i super mi ‘izdrže’ :)
    Sad si me skroz zainteresirala za ovaj Essie, pogotovo kad sam vidjela da ne sadrži formaldehyd.

    Ja sam do sad (skoro tri godine) koristila Eveline 8u1 i nokti su mi čvrsti da čvršći ne mogu biti ali primjećujem da su skroz isušeni…

  • Dijelimo cak dva favorita odavdje – i to iste verzije :D Bourjois Rose Tweed nosim svaki dan i Dove dezodorans Green tea& Cucumber, on mi je bas otkrice i odlican je :) taj koristim u spreju, a od ovih kremastih isto kao i Palcica Neutro Roberts ruzicasti :) mislim da cu si ovaj Essie naruciti!

  • E da i skuzila sam da imam jednu BIPInu olovku i to bas Orchid :D a komentirala sam ti na Diva postu kako mi je lijepa. Samo dokaz da mi zene imamo previse kozmetike xD

  • Biberlee

    Konacno i ja narucih MOA green balm, nakon sto sam ga po ko zna koji put vidjela ovdje na blogu :)
    Za sta ga ti sve koristis, moze li biti oil cleanser?

  • I love the look of Rose Tweed, such a pretty colour!

    Maddy, xo // UNSTITCHEDD

  • mihaela

    odličnoo :) sve!

  • uh meni je taj s krastavcem baš vječna ljubav, nikako ga se ne mogu zasititi, i sad kako su izbacili aluminij, stvarno sam presretna!

    meni se ova Essie baza skroz svidja, nokti su mi stvarno čvrsti i uspjeli su se oporaviti :)

  • Rose Tweed is such a perfect shade, gives you just the right amount of color! I don’t know the brand Logona, where is it available?

  • Neutro Roberts i meni ima super baby puder miris, ali ga nikad osobno nisam nosila baš zbog te odanosti Dove-u :) kratko sam prešla na neki bezaluminijski, ali su me sad razveselili jer su maknuli aluminij iz mog najdražeg Dove-a.

    Mene je malo strah bilo tog Eveline-a, jer sam vidjela da su neke cure pisale da ih znaju baš nevjerojatno peći nokti od njega, što je vjerojatno posljedica nekog od sastojaka.

  • :D Smiješno je kako nisi ni znala da imaš olovku, a baš je divna! To je već znak za uzbunu :D

  • Možeš ga za hrpetinu stvari koristiti, a i cleanser. Sad su počeli odvojeno prodavati i bamboo cloth koji se koristi u toj cleansing metodi da ukloni sve prljavštine, ali ja ga koristim i bez toga kao cleanser jednom tjedno. Za ostale dane koristim onu klasičnu kombinaciju suncokretovog i ricinusovog ulja jer je jeftinija na duge staze. :)

  • It really is! :) a gorgeous shade!

  • Biberlee

    Malo sam previdjela to, ona krpica mi je djelovala kao potencijalni germ grower, vjerovatno ću koristiti one jeftine (skoro pa jednokratne) spužvice za čišćenje…imam problema sa bijelim miteserima na obrazima, vidjet ćemo hoće li mi ovo pomoći, baš se nadam da hoće, pa mi neće biti žao trošenja novca ako upali :D

  • I found Logona make up at a health food store in Zagreb….

    I also found it on line at lovelula.com and naturissimo.com I heard Logona lipsticks are pretty good…I bought their Double Lip pencil in 01 and really love it! :) I recently went to the Mac store in Zagreb…I think I’m going to have to buy a lipstick!!! For old time sake! :)

  • Mells corner

    Ignoriram preporuke alata za kosu jer me samo tjeraš na trošenje. :D
    Moa balzam definitivno moram isprobati prvom prilikom, jako si me zaintrigirala jer ga neprestano hvališ.

  • That magic healing balm sounds definitely interesting…
