It’s time for a new category here on my blog, monthly beauty favorites! Products that I have used and loved this past month.
Rituals – Honey touch
I seriously can’t stop sniffing myself after I’ve applied this body creme. It smells sooo good and leaves my skin soft and moisturized. I really like Rituals body cremes because they sink in to the skin very quickly, and as I already said they smell so lovely.
Exuviance – Triple Microdermabrasion
This face polish is the best! My skin feels so smooth and soft after using it. This is a product that will always be a part of my skin care routine from now on.
The Body Shop – Himalayan charcoal
This is one of the new face masks from The Body Shop. I got a sample of it a few weeks ago and after trying it I just had to buy the mask. I like how it makes my skin feel deeply cleansed and my pores smaller. Read more about it here.
Ole Henriksen – Truth serum collagen booster
First of all this serums smells amazing! Like the color hints, it smells like orange. I have just started to use this serum but so far I really like it, it feels like it gives the skin a bit of an extra glow.
Depend – Eyebrow Pencil slim & thin
This is one of the new products from Depends Perfect eye collection and the eyebrow pencil quickly became a favorite of mine. It is really easy to use and the result gets better every day. My brows are on fleek with this pencil!

This weekend I got some samples of The Body Shop’s new face masks when I visited one of their stores. The one I was most excited to try was Himalayan charcoal, so I’m very happy that I got that one!
The Body Shop – Himalayan charcoal & Ethiopian honey
The Body Shop – Himalayan charcoal
Himalayan charcoal is a purifying glow mask that’s 100% vegan. It is a tingling clay mask that is infused with bamboo charcoal, green tea leaves and organic tea tree oil. The mask is supposed to draw out impurities and refine the appearance of pores and give glow to the skin. It is ideal for the T-zone, since it absorbs excess oil.
I feels purifying and it sure tingles once you put it on the skin, so I’m guessing it’s not for those with sensitive skin. It takes about 5 – 10 minutes for the mask to dry, and it dries solid but it’s still easy to rinse off. Afterwards my pores look smaller and the skin has a nice glow. I’d like to use this mask again, so I think I have to buy it!
The Body Shop – Ethiopian honey
Ethiopian honey is a deep nourishing mask that is 100% vegetarian. It is an indulgent melting face mask that consists of Community Trade honey, marula and olive oils. The mask replenishes, restores and comforts skin and makes it feel softer and smoother.
The mask smells and looks like honey and it is very cosy on the skin. The scent makes it calming and relaxing and I would like to try it in the bath, to get even more relaxed. It is a bit sticky so it doesn’t rinse off that quickly. Afterwards the skin feels soft and moisturized.
My favorite of the two masks is Himalayan charcoal, I love tingling feel and how my pores tightened from using it! I think I have to go back to The Body Shop and get it in full size.
Today was (and still is) a really hot day, so after taking a shower I wanted a cooling face mask. The cucumber gel mask from Peter Thomas Roth sounded like a good idea since it’s both cooling and moisturizing. To make it even cooler I put the mask in the fridge before I took my shower. Aaahh… so cool and calming on my face.
