1. New Look star clutch
Remember one of my 7 facts (click)? I love stars! So this New Look clutch obviously caught my eye. I bought it a while ago, but it’s only recently that I’ve been able to carry this bag around. The blue pastel color is perfect for Spring and the clutch is large enough to carry phone, wallet, notebook, pens and a few beauty products.
2. Ecoya Lip balm
A lovely gift from Alice & White, Ecoya is an eco-luxe Australian brand mostly known for the natural soy wax candles. I must say that I’m pleasantly surprise by this balm. Packed with ultra-nourishing ingredients (macadamia oil, Manuka honey, shea butter, avocado oil) it’s a great lip treatment, bringing back some much needed moisture to dehydrated, cracked lips. A rich and soothing balm, perfect for a natural look.
3. Gressa Lip Boost in “Bare”
Major love for this product! In my February shopping list (click), I included Gressa Skin’s Rejuvenating Mist. Of course, when I went to place the order, I couldn’t help but add this little beauty to the shopping basket and I don’t regret it! I’m a bright lipstick gal, but this is by far the best “nude” lip product I’ve tried. No need to get scary injections to have fuller lips, Gressa’s lip boost lives up to its name. It’s a vegan and all natural pout enhancer, which also nourishes the lips at the same time. A true star product! A little goes a long way, but it will be a repurchase for sure.
4. Weleda white mallow lotion (sample size)
I’m a loyal Weleda customer, so when their new “White Mallow” range launched, I had to give it a try. Initially targeted towards babies, this mild frangrance-free lotion was awarded the National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance. I got the sample size, which is very convenient, that I keep it my bag and use whenever I need to hydrate my hands.
The smell is a bit disconcerting though, (I believe it’s because of the mixture of coconut oil and borage oil ) but it really softens my hands and soothes any irritations.
5. Ghost World by Daniel Clowes.
You may know the movie starring young Scarlett Johansson and Thora Birch, well this is the comic book it was based on. An accurate portrait of teenage angst, Ghost World illustrates the friendship of two witty and cynical teenagers, Enid Coleslaw and Rebecca Doppelmeyer in the early 90’s and follows their uneasy journey into adulthood. I loved the movie, but I had to read the original piece, which is great and reminded me of my “youth”: I used to devour comic books, especially those incorporating strong female characters (girl powaa!).
So these are my current favorites! I’d love to hear yours 🙂
