January favourites


This month I don’t have many new favourites. All my favourites from the past months stand strong. I havn’t used the new products long enough for them to make their way here. For example, I am using a few new mascaras, but I am not certain if any of them are my favourites yet. So let’s get to the products which found their way into this post.




This month I have two new favourites in the nail department. I have been using two different nail polish removers. One of them is from The Body Shop and the other is from Maybelline.

The Body Shop Sweet Almond Oil Nail Polish Remover – I bought it in November when I had The Body Shop Haul. This is the nail polish remover I used the most in January. The nail polish remover has mild almond scent. While using it, the product moisturises the nails too. Although, I suggest washing your hands after using it as well. It is always a good idea to wash your hands after using nail polish remover.

This product removes the polish quickly and without having to rub it forcefully, or for a long time, unless you are wearing glittery nail polish.  Removing that always takes effort. In the end you will succeed, it just takes more time. Another downside of the product is in the bottle. In my opinion the bottle’s mouth is too big, and too much product comes out at once.



Maybelline Nail Express Remover Pot – This is the perfect helper while you are in the middle of painting your nails. So, imagine this- you are doing your nails and ruin one nail. Now you have a dilemma- whether to leave it like it is, or risk ruining all your other nails when trying to fix it with a traditional nail polish remover and a cotton pad. If you have this near you, you can just dip the finger with the ruined polish in, swirl it few times, and remove all the polish from your nail. As a result you have a clean nail to start over. I can’t name a single bad thing about the product.
Moving on to taking makeup off of my skin or makeup tools.

Blendercleanser® solid® – I bought this especially for my Beauty blender. It quickly became my first choice for cleaning makeup brushes, and other makeup sponges. The cleanser lathers up well and removes traces of makeup easily from brushes. I wash my makeup sponges after every four-five uses.The product has been removing almost all foundation that has soaked into the sponge. We’ll see how well it will perform after a month or two.



Simple Kind To Skin Cleansing Facial Wipes – I had heard about the Simple brand so many times from Youtubers I´ve subscribed to, that when I saw them on the shelf at the Department store (Tallinna Kaubamaja) I almost squealed. Almost. I was really excited to try these and I wasn’t disappointed. They remove makeup gently and leave my skin feeling fresh. The best thing about these are, I can remove my eye makeup with them. They didn’t make my eyes sting afterwards, which is a big plus. I usually use makeup wipes right after I get home. I take most of the makeup off with them and before bed I go through my evening routine




My other favourites were the Beauty Blender and Marc Anthony´s hair products. I wrote about them few weeks back. Links are here: BB and Marc Anthony

  1. I love the beautyblender cleanser. I read that you can use other cleansers, but I can’t see myself doing that. I also read recently someone uses the bb cleanser for their brushes and I imagine that it works great, but I can’t spend that much money on brush cleansing!!!


  2. Two things. I purchased the “Real Techniques” BB dupe. It. Is. Fantastic. It is easier to clean as well. I’m using regular hand soap and it cleans up beautifully. Ok. Now for the BB Soap. I have it as well. At $16.00 a pop, I think it is pricey and it does work, but you really need to give that BB a good scrubbing. The soap also wears down pretty fast. For the price point, I’m looking into other options!
    I”m trying to track down that Marc Anthony conditioner!!!!


    • I have noticed the opposite. BB cleans better than RT, and I don’t need to rub BB a lot either. Current situation is that RT has few strong stains (I can’t get it complitely clean) and BB has light shadow on few places.
      You should definitely try Marc Anthony products! They are amazing 💕👌


  3. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a beauty blender looking this clean *lol* mine went to the bin because it looked so horribly dirty – i dont think there was a cleanser available back then, maybe need to try again!


    • I’ve been using the blender since end of the December 2015. Or was it beginning of January already. I don’t remember. Anyway… I wash it every 3-4 uses and with the cleanser soap, almost everything comes off (as seen on the picture). 😊
