Every season I tend to gravitate towards certain products, more than others. The following is my Autumn Edit for 2014, with the changes I carried out for skincare, makeup and hair.
For skincare my top priority is hydration, so the products I turned to are good for dehydrated skin and at soothing it. For makeup, I chose products that are easy to use for on-the-go and that are long-lasting since I have long days at University and work. On the other hand for hair, I chose products that help my hair stay sleek and frizz free for longer.
Yves Rocher Extreme Comfort Mask – This is a quick fix mask, that you apply for 5 minutes and then rinse off. It feels like a cream going on and doesn’t dry to a hard feel, thus it leaves the skin feeling very soothed and hydrated. Perfect for a regular weekly application that helps keep your skin looking at its best.
Avène Soothing Eye Contour Cream – This eye-cream is bit on the thick side so I love using it at night, before going to bed. It helps hydrate and soothe tired eyes that tend to get red and it is not greasy.
Weleda Skin Food – This is a bit of different product. I have had it for months but never really got round to using it properly. I have recently discovered that this works wonders if used as a mask. I apply a thin layer of this thick cream on my face and rinse after about 20 minutes. My skin is left feeling plump and re-hydrated in no time.
The Body Shop Vitamin E Cream Cleanser – The name says it all for this cleanser. It feels like a cream, smells amazing and leaves the skin feeling smooth and clean without that uncomfortable tightening feeling.
Rimmel Lasting Finish Nude Foundation – This is a bit of a thinner version of the old Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation. The formula however is as long-lasting as ever and gives a smooth, even finish to your skin without feeling too heavy.
Pupa Like a Doll Blush – This blush is in the shade 104 and it is a matte, baby pink colour that looks great on paler skin. The pigmentation is amazing and it blends easily into the skin.
Catrice Colour Correcting Mattifying Powder – This product is everything the name claims. It works great as a mattifying powder with the added benefit of having the different shades in it that help at colour correcting your skin. Light on the skin, blend-able and non-powdery finish.
Essence Colour & Go Nail Polish – This is the shade 175 Be Berry Now, but more importantly than the shade, this nail polish represents the colour tone I love wearing on my nails during Autumn. Berry shades, dark reds and purples are my favourite during this time of year.
Tresemmé 7-Day Smooth System Treatment – I already have a review of this product here, but basically what it does is it gives you smooth looking, frizz-free hair for a whole week without a lot of hassle. This is part of the Tresemmé Keratin Smooth System but I even love using this product on its own.
Osmo Effects Straighten Up – This product works in conjunction with the Tresemmé 7-Day Smooth System Treatment. It is a lightweight product that can be used at every wash, unlike the Tresemmé on which you use once a week. It doesn’t weigh down the hair and leaves it smooth until the next wash.
Yves Rocher Nutrition Dry Ends Repair Balm – I also have a review for this product here. It is a fail-safe product that helps to smooth out those frizzy hair ends whilst repairing them and making them shiny and healthy again.
Have you switched out any products during Autumn? Would you pick any from my Edit?
