Today I'm hosting very dear and nice Slovenian blogger Danijela from AlejinaD (have you noticed that her blog name is her name backwards :D). Last year she opened this blog after hiatus and that makes me very happy, because I always love and enjoy to read her posts. She has a beauty blog, but she also writes about places she traveled to, and those are my favourite posts on her blog (maybe because I haven't traveled much and I want to, not to mention she writes about places I want to visit). I also love to read her reviews, because they are so informative, well written and truthful. Today she's sharing her favourite winter products and some of them are also on my list of favourite products. I hope you're going to love her post as much as I do.
Let me start with telling you that it's such an honor for me to write a guest post on this amazing beauty blog. I have to confess, that for the last two years I can't even imagine my morning coffee without checkin' if Tatjana wrote any new post on her blog. When she contacted me and asked if I would like to write guest post for her 5th blogiversary, of course I had to say yes. Besides the offer came just in the right time and made me overcome my blogging block, so hopefully you will enjoy reading about my winter discoveries/favorites.
First product that I discovered this winter is La Roche Posay HYDREANE Legere. Amazing moisturizing cream for sensitive skin that works great on normal and combination skin type. We all know that our skin becomes dull and dehydrated in the winter time, so the additional care is very important. This moisturizing cream keeps away dry flakes on my cheeks, it doesn't clog my pores and my T-zone don't start to shine right away as usually. What more can you wish for?
Another product that I discovered two years ago: I honestly don't know how I lived without Carmex lip balm all those years. It's just perfect product for dry, chapped lips. Generously apply it on the lips in the evening and the next morning you'll wake up with soft, nourished lips.
Let's move on to the body products. I like to pamper my skin with Nivea Nourishing body milk, that smells like all Nivea products – heavenly. It makes my skin incredibly soft and that feeling lasts quite a long time. Next product I'm going to mention is kind of a wonder product, mostly because we can use it for pampering our body, hair and face. I'm talking about Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse dry oil. It sinks into the skin within minute and leaves your skin soft, healthy glowing but without any sign of greasiness. I noticed that it also helps to heal scars and red marks from acne, which is a great bonus. You can also use it after washing your hair for care of split ends, extra shine and amazing scent. However, I don't really use it on my fine hair because I think it weights them down. Besides, my holy grail for winter hair care is Kérastase Nectar thermique. I use it before every blow-drying or straightening my hair, because it is a heat protecting product but it also nourishes my hair, makes them smooth, soft to the touch, shiny and keeps the frizz away.
And finally the last two products I've been using this winter a lot: Heat Rush EDT and Essie Sexy divide.
In my opinion Beyonce Heat Rush EDT is perfect fruity fragrance for winter time. It has just the right amount of fruit sweetness, so it can be considered as a winter perfume, although the tropical notes call for the summer time. The main note that I smell all the time is mostly delicious mix of passion fruit and mango blossom. It's not overpowering fragrance, the sillage is moderate and it has a lasting power of 3+ hours on me.
My all time favorite Essie nail polish is Sexy divide, which also happens to be the perfect shade for winter time. It is super long-lasting and its color never cease to amaze me.
