Five Favorite Beauty Buys (End of 2018 favorites)

January 5

Face cream: Rodial Dragon’s Blood sculpting gel
My absolute favorite product this month – pretty much magic for my skin. gel-cream form. I’ve been using it instead of my day cream and primer – hydrates and plumps the skin, definitely worth the investment.

Dry Shampoo: Balmain Hair Dry Shampoo
This has been my favorite dry shampoo on the market for some time and definitely worth investing into. A large bottle, smells so good (I love the signature Balmain fragrance) and doesn’t leave a white residue.
Balmain haircare is distributed by Belgravia in the region.

Highlighter: Dior Rouge Blush midnight wish golden shimmer powder blush
A limited edition product by Dior Beauty (the brand is really killing it with their launches). Quite a small palette for a highlighter, but the gold illuminator is so pigmented and blends in perfectly without looking OTT.

Powder: Laura Mercier translucent loose setting powder glow
The one product I couldn’t wait for from Laura Mercier. The brand recently launched the glow version of their signature and best selling translucent loose setting powder. I love it for a couple of reasons 1) it’s super light on the skin 2) Ever since I started using it, I haven’t had to top up or blot my skin throughout the night 3) Even though it’s glow based, it doesn’t cause a flash-back in pictures.

Body: The Body Shop Moringa Body Yogurt
When it comes to body creams, I hate when they’re greasy and like only light stuff that absorb easily into the skin. In a gel-cream form, it’s incredibly light weight and keeps my skin hydrated all day. It’s also 100% vegan.
