oooh, I definitely saved the juiciest for last.
these were my skincare star products for this year, and I believe many will be on my routine for a long long time.

for now, I wish you happy holidays, stay warm, cozy, and stress-free, and I’ll see you in 2018!

Autumn is here, with its sudden weather changes (oh, having to carry a coat all day, sweating profusely, because you know you’ll desperately need it at the end of the day), and our skin takes a toll.
today I’m focusing on products that you can amp up during this time (despite some being year-round favourites), because darker days come in favour of more intense resurfacing skincare (you still have to use SPF, no cheating) and because your skin is going to need your help to boost the hydration levels under harsh air conditioning and brittle cold wind.

all about my favourites to get (part of) that golden glow I used to have as a kid, without sitting in the sun. because ain’t nobody got time fo’ that!
Vita Liberata pHenomenal Self-Tanning Mousse — the most affordable I found was at Beauty Bay, but Cult Beauty carries more shades, like Feelunique and Look Fantastic — so it’s a matter of looking out for promotions.
La Roche-Posay Autohelios can be found on Look Fantastic and Feelunique
James Reed H2O Tan Mist can be found also on Look Fantastic and Feelunique
Clarins Radiance Plus Golden Glow Booster is widely available in local stores, and you can also find it on Feelunique.
My honest thoughts on a very hyped product.
Spoiler: it is worth it, but you have to consult your budget.
You can find this product on CultBeauty and Look Fantastic, as well as in your local drugstore, if you’re in the U.K. or the U.S.
I’ve never done one of these before… How did I go?
Aside from the spinach and lipstick on my teeth, I mean.
oh, you have to go and watch again because you couldn’t stop staring? ok, I’ll wait…
I’ll just leave you here a list of the products mentioned.

magic in a bottle, a can that mists you with an invisible shield that protects you from the harmful rays of sun, that can be easily reapplied throughout the day without disturbing your makeup. but which one to go for?
I’ve tried them both. here are my thoughts.
UPDATE: My sister has atopic skin and had an allergic reaction to the La Roche Posay mist. So if you’re very sensitive, I would stay away from this one, sadly.
Bioderma Hydrabio Moisturising anti-UV mist, SPF 30
La Roche-Posay Anthelios Invisible Face Mist SPF 50
