If you like foundations that have super sheer coverage and feel very lightweight, definitely try L’oreal’s Nude Magique. It looks very natural! Mine is in the shade 150 Nude Beige.

I also got a new eye cream, which is great, and two new concealers.
First, I needed a new undereye concealer. Since I heard so many positive reviews on Rimmel’s Wake me up concealer, I decided to get it. Mine is in the shade 020 True Ivory. It’s really moisturising and covers dark circles beautifully.
Second, I got my fav concealer for pimples and highlighting. True Match by L’oreal is seriously amazing stuff. However, I couldn’t find it in my shade 3 Creme, so I got 4 Beige and it came soooooooo pale, like almost white, so I am a little upset. But it really is a wonderful concealer.

Hey guys! I know I look like a ghost on this photo, but what can I do I just love Lush’s Ocean Salt scrub so much:) As you have already read  above, this post is going to be all about taking care of my skin and how I keep it matte, clear and blemish-free.

Instead of just taking photos of my favourite products, I’ve decided to make a polyvore set, hope you like it)

These are the products, that I use on a daily basis for at least a couple of months now, they don’t break me out and don’t cause any allergic reactions (otherwise they won’t be in this post, right?))

  1. My Garnier face wash for sensitive skin is a blessing. It says ‘dry and sensitive skin’, but it’s also perfect for my oily skin. It removes excess oil and dirt without making my skin too dry or itchy. I have tried so many face washes, but this is the best for any skin type. It even saved me from an ugly allergic reaction once. I have this thing with water, and whenever I travel my skin mostly hates local water. So the last time I went to St.Petersburg, my face turned red and had that awful type of pimples, when you have a lot and they are tiny. Ewww:( My skin reminded me of skin of a hippo. Honestly! But then I just went to a local drugstore, grabbed this Garnier stuff and voilà, after just two washes my skin looked decent again! 🙂
  2. This Nivea mattifying toner is great for someone with oily skin. Plus, this seems to be the only toner, that doesn’t break me out  or cause allergic reactions (unfortunatelly that happens to me pretty often with new products). I still remember buying Olay toner and being all spotty for a while after using it. I just think that if you have sensitive skin, like myself, don’t switch to different brands too often. What I mean is, I know that Nivea is good for my skin, and I stick to it. I usually use this toner instead of moisturiser before I put my makeup on btw
  3. This is actually the only L’oreal non-makeup product I own (have no idea why). The little flat brush, that comes with it, cleans my pores so well. It’s a great product to use after you’ve been wearing lots makeup for the whole day. Also, a little comes a long way!
  4. Pupa is one of my favourite European makeup brands and I was so excited to get this cute little eye makeup remover and a mascara as a gift for my birthday. At first, i thought it wouldn’t work for me because my eyes are increadible sensitive. So sensitive that I can’t apply eye pencil on my waterline, even taking photos makes my eyes ache sometimes. But, unexpectadly, this oily remover turned out to be amazing for my eyes. Love it!
  5. I love Beauty Formulas. I’ve tried so many of their stuff, and 85% of them were great. But these nose strips are not only great, they are perfect! The packaging says ‘removes blackheads and dirt instantly’ and it does. Amazing product for a very reasonable price. Totally recommend.
  6. I got this Boots Rapid action spot gel a year ago in Bangkok, and i still have it! All because a liitle goes a long way. It reduces blemishes, redness. I usually apply it on pimples before I go to sleep.
  7. Rival de Loop is a German brand, which is not very well-known outside of Germany, and I got no idea why. They have good and very affordable products. This one is a roll-on eye gel and I love applying it before I do my makeup. Again if it works for my eyes, I think it’s hyppoallergenic.
  8. Another product, that says ‘for dry skin’, but works perfectly for my oily skin, I wouldn’t put it under my makeup though) Very good night cream. I love using it after L’oreal mattifying treatment (3)
  9. You can never go wrong with Anatomicals! Throughout the last couple of years I’ve had so many products from this UK brand with quirky packaging. I must say, I have never been disappointed. Great quality, packaging, smell and price.  This eye cream is perfect for delicate skin.
  10. Read 9:) When I saw this moisturiser at Asos, I knew I had to have it. Perfect for those days, when you are not wearing makeup.
  11. Synergen has come up with a lovely roll-on spot treatment. One of my favourites, basically does the same thing, as number 6)
  12. I use Nivea All-in-1 skin treatment as a mask mostly, although you can use it as a scrub or a cleanser. It has very nice ‘clean’ smell and antibacterial effect. I’ve been using this mask for a while now, and I can recommend it for people with oily/blemish-prone skin.
  13. I don’t have many Lush products, but this Ocean Salt scrub ‘screams’ natural, good for your skin and soothing. It’s probably not the best scrub for someone with dry skin, but it works amazingly for my oily/sensitive skin. After applying this scrub I usulally keep it on my skin for 15-20 minutes, then rinse and apply product number 8.

As always I forgot something very important, the best lip treatment EVER from Neutrogena:

If you are wondering how often I use all of these products, I can say that my golden rule is ‘ALWAYS use an eye cream or gel’. You should start doing that when you are 16. There are plenty lightweight eye gels for young skin. It’ll allow you to stay young as long as possible.  I usually use my L’oreal treatment on Mondays, nose strips and Nivea mask on Wednesdays and my Lush scrub on Fridays. I ALWAYS remove my makeup before going to sleep and apply my Vitamin E cream, in the mornings I use Anatomicals stuff if I don’t intend to wear makeup, or if I do, I’d use my Nivea mattifying toner and eye gel.

Hugs& have a great skin 😉
