Loving this week - Sanctuary Spa, Aussie, Orly...

An authentic BB cream that I have come across after ages! This one feels thick in consistency but disappears to almost nothing on the face, with the slightest of coverage and the most beautiful post-facial glow that I have ever seen. It contains an SPF of 15 and would be great for mature or dry skin types that need a boost of hydration in the Summer and are blessed with good skin. Due to its illuminating nature, I like to use it as a Primer underneath Foundation for that extra glow 'from within'. The only complaint I have of this is the lack of shades it's available in and that the shades run darker than usual.

Aussie's Summer collection. They have redesigned their bottles to reflect the season and I am in love with the Limited Edition 3 minute miracle. No exaggeration but it leaves my hair like silk. To me, it looks like they have reformulated their formula's as well as I have never been a die hard fan of the 3 minute miracle. The Colour Insurance Leave-in Conditioner is also a life saver. I cannot tell you how many times I spray it in my hair to protect it from heat tools and the sun and it has never felt sticky, only leaves hair super moisturised and deliciously scented.

Orly Decoded. I believe it's a part of their latest release Electronica Collection and has the most beautifully opaque consistency I have ever come across in their polishes before. Above is only one damn coat and that's how good it looks. The shade is a cloudy grey with a hint of taupe to it. Not sure why it appears greenish in the bottle as it doesn't transfer as such on the nails. It looks quite flattering on my skin tone and is not dreary or goth-like at all. It has a creamy finish to it and after 3 days, is still going strong on the nails. 

My phone case which has been truly saving it from a million times that I manage to drop it on the floor. Plus I love how it looks. It's from ebay by the way and I wish they were sold more accessibly in stores. Of course I am team Android any day and love my Samsung Galaxy to bits.
