List of favorites

Aesop Lucent Concentrate




Aesop – Lucent facial Concentrate


I love it for its texture – it is very lightweight and my skin looks happy and matte after I use it. Also, it contains Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, a.k.a. Vitamin C, which does magic with tired and dull skin.






Kate Somerville – EradiKate Acne Treatment


I always have it on stand-by, because huge pimple comes when you don't expect it and this is the only overnight lotion that actually reduces it in size and heals within hours (or days, depending on the situation).










Trish McEvoy – Lash Curling Mascara


I touch my eyes 100+ times a day and this is the only mascara that doesn't flake and takes care of my lashes without me remembering about it. I love products that do not require extra maintenance, so out of million mascara options I choose this one.







La mer – Soft Moisturizing Cream


I guess the price played its role here. This bottle is the most expensive skincare product I ever bought and I want to believe this is my favorite cream. I am not saying it is not, I love it, but I am pretty sure there are less expensive alternatives. Let me finish this bottle and I will start exploring!







Biotherm – Deo Pure Antiperspirant


I don't know what I would do without it (well, we all know what happens when deodorant is bad). This is the best deodorant in the world. It is really hard to find it in the USA, but you should try. It works for many hours and doesn't leave white marks or yellow stains on clothes.







Make Beauty  – Sculpting Lash and brow Gel


I use it on both brows and lashes - I love products that multitask. It is clear and really makes lashes look longer and thicker when you apply mascara. I like how it brushes my messy brows and keeps them in place for a long time. If I feel that I need more color I use tinted brow gel, but on most days this Make stick does it all.






Bioderma – Micellar Water



Forever and ever, every morning and every night. In my carry-on luggage and in my suitcase. In my car, next to my bed. Best product to remove make-up, cleanse and refresh.

$14.90 for full size







Smith & Cult – base and top coats



Trust me, any nail polish will stay for at least 4 solid days with those two, maybe longer. And it will also dry nicely and even the brightest red shade will be a pleasure to remove. With this Smith & Cult couple I started doing my nails at home which seemed impossible before. It justifies the price.

$18 each







Nars – Radiant Creamy Concealer



I carry it with me every day even though it stays on for a long time and I doesn't require often touch-ups. This concealer gives the best natural-looking coverage and I use it under my eyes and to hide redness or pimples. This is a classic must-have product.






Trish McEvoy – Liquid Face Color



My favorite blush for daytime. It gives the right amount of blush and shimmer to look very natural but fresh and radiant. I also like that it comes in the pretty pink stick, it makes it so easy to carry it around.






Garnier – Whole Blends Repairing Shampoo and Conditioner



The best duo I ever tried. My hair is very thin and damaged from trying to achieve the perfect shade of blonde and this is the only shampoo & conditioner that allows me to brush my hair with no tears on my eyes. It also gives a very nice volume and sometimes I just let my hair air dry and it looks great.

$3.99 each





Nars – Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in dolce Vita



Another amazing Nars product – perfect shade, very easy to apply, weightless on the lips. I have many shades but my favorite is Dolce Vita – it works for both daytime and casual night out. 

$27 for full size or $20 for 2 minis
