October Favorites

If I had my own YouTube channel I probably would have had a lot easier task of filling you guys in on my top favorite October products. But since I'm still figuring that part out and considering my options, I decided to just stick with what I know for now and make a new blog post for you.

Okay, so below I will be showing and giving opinions on different products that I've used throughout the last 3 months, so read on 😊

Cien Facial Toner is a product that I use every day whenever I feel like my skin is getting dry or when I have some new red looking pimples on my face. I just apply it all over my face and let it sit there for about 3 to 4 hours and the effect is amazing afterwords. The skin is looking calmer and more hydrated. I am someone who has combined skin and is really difficult to find a product like this one that actually works for your skin and does wonders. I buy it from Lidl whenever I take a trip down to Greece and have a stock full of bottles like this one just in case. I think it's like 2 euros, I don't really remember cause it's the cheapest product ever, and it also has a twin sister which is pink and is for dry skin type only. My advice is to try it if you have problems with redness and pimples and have combined skin like mine.

This is a product I swear by, it is really cheap and it does the trick perfectly. I use it during showers just so I don't have to apply any sorts of body or hand creams that prevent dryness. I hate putting on tons and tons of creams, so this shower gel has some sorts of ingredients that make my skin hydrated and also leaves an amazing sent all over my body. You can buy it in any drugstore and market.

Okay so usually people don't use this brand of hair shampoo, but I kinda love head and shoulders. This is a citrus fresh edition which I bought when I was in Greece from one of their markets, and has proven to be an amazing shampoo. It gets rid of the whites in my hair and leaves behind an amazing smell of citrus. Also I have no problem brushing my hair while it is wet, which for me it's sort of difficult to do, but I guess this guy has some sorts of ingredients that make my hair brush easily or sth like that. So all in all I highly recommend this shampoo if you have a long and thick hair like mine.

The head and shoulders I bought myself, but recently my mum got me this fruity smelling paradise for my hair and it's from Garnier, which is a really good brand btw, and made a fantastic shampoo. It basically does the same trick as the other shampoo and am really really fond of this one as well and highly recommend it.

This nail polish remover is my lifesaver when it comes to easily wiping off in one swift move the rest of my nail polish without leaving any sorts of stains from the polish on my fingers. I also bought it from Lidl for about a euro and sth, pretty cheap so if you have a chance to buy it please do and you won't be disappointed at all.

For those of you who don't know I as many other girls have problems with cellulite, so before working out with my aerobics instructor in the studio, I put on some of this awesome stuff all over my legs and tummy, and get dressed afterwords in my training clothes. The result is that you sweat so much and lose even more weight and most importantly cellulite and fat, and after a quick shower all that sweat and cream washes off and you're left with a great result. Just remember that you have to use it every time before going to the gym for about 1 to 2 months for it to show the results on your body.

For those of you ladies who have problems with redness caused by shaving under your underarms this is the answer to your prayers. This lovely looking product will not only make your underarms smell amazing and make you sweat less, but it will also calm your irritated skin. I highly recommend for any of you to buy this.

Xtina is definitely famous for her beautiful fragrances, and this is the one of the two that I own that actually deserved to be on my favorites list. It was a gift from my boyfriend for my 22nd birthday a few months ago, and he knew how much I was dying to have it and finally got it for me. The smell is intense and simply addictive. I wear it all day every day, it's basically a day or night sort of fragrance and is very long lasting, sometimes for even days. I highly recommend it.

Many of you must have seen this gorgeous Dior makeup travel kit on my instagrams recently, so naturally I put it on my favorites list. This is the 3rd Dior palette I have owned and am absolutely in love with. It is such a handy little thing for when I travel somewhere and want to simply look my best, but I also don't want to carry a ton of makeup products in my bag. It was a gift from my dad for my birthday, and am so really pleased that I finally have it and that he finally listened to my begging to buy me this.

This is the old packaging of this RimmelLondon foundation, it's in colour true ivory and am so far very content with it. You can wear it day or night, and hopefully not for 25 hours :-D, but at least for 12 which is how much I usually wear it throughout the day. The coverage is pretty good, but for someone who has constant showing of 1 to 3 red pimples on her face on a daily bases I'd recommend to either put on a second layer of foundation, or to just apply a concealer before the foundation and that would sort of do the trick. Other then the fact that it poorly covers my pimples, all in all it is a great lasting foundation that I recommend buying.

I never used a makeup setter before cause I usually just set my makeup with a powder, but I recently got this product from one of dm's sub brands and it's called alverde, which I most definitely recommend. It fixes everything nicely for about 12 hours, which is more then anyone needs really, and is extra cheap, about 3 to 4 euros or sth like that.

I am a huge fan of the red lip, so for anyone who shares my passion, I recommend you try these two RimmelLondon by Kate Moss lipsticks. The red packaging is the matte line and the black one is the lasting finish lipstick line. I couldn't say which one I like more, because I like both equally, and mix both of them together when I need a more edgier look, and when I like to compliment my outfit. RimmelLondon makes loads of great and affordable products that I simply can't leave without and these are one of many that I use. I recommend that you buy at least one lipstick per line, so that you may see what I'm really talking about.



Another pair from RimmelLondon, one for those of you who love those 3d lash effects, and for those of you who just love a bigger brush to add more mascara on your lashes and make them feel longer and thicker. I highly recommend you to try these and also the new scandaleyes RELOADED mascara.

I'm not really a fan of lipgloss because on a windy day your hair gets all stock to it, but this one, I wanted to give a chance and try it out. The colour is amazing, a very gentle pink that gives great effect on your lips and makes them shine. The only downside is the fact that it erases really quickly after you eat or drink sth and it also leaves a bit of some round stuff around the corners of your mouth after a few hours of use. So all in all I'd say that I 50:50 recommend using this product.

This is the concealer that I was talking about earlier that makes my pimples more covered and unnoticeable. I highly recommend it, it leaves a great final result, it lasts up to 12 or 13 hours which is great for the money I gave cause it was about 3 euros.

I'm the clumsiest person ever when it comes to applying makeup, so this little thing really eases the whole process of putting on eyeshadow when I need to. The colour is a mix of brown, gold and creme, and it is a liquid eyeshadow with a brush inside that you can easily use. Highly recommended.

I rarely use an eyeliner, but when I do this is the thing to make that happen. I know that you'll say that H&M is a clothing store and they haven't got a clue how to create makeup products, well I'm going to say that you're in the wrong. Just because it was made by a clothing brand, it doesn't mean that it's not good. The brush inside is really thin and when applied on your eye lids it looks absolutely fantastic. Also it's not removed easily, so you can wear it even when it's raining outside and get away with it.

Another Cien/Lidl product that I love love love. Both of these colours are great to wear either in summer or wintery seasons, and they last for more then 2 weeks. Highly recommended.

This is the makeup setting powder that I was talking about earlier. It's extra cheap and it does the trick. You can even see that by how much I actually used it and really need to get myself another one.


And last, but not least, my favorite eos lipbalm. I am so in love with eos that I even became a collector, and must have every colour and shape out there. The smell of strawberry is simply devine and will make your lips more gentle and moist. Highly recommended.


Okay guys, so that was it for this months favorites, there will be more products to come on my next favorites blog post. Subscribe so you won't miss it, and...

Till next time
