October Favourites

My life as Anu october beauty favourites
This month I've been loving many things that involve eyes. Couple of them are new products I've discovered recently but there's also some good old favourites.

Dermalogica PreCleanse
This bad boy is clearly a new discovery since I just bought it at the I Love Me event (see event post here and haul here). Even though I've been using it only for about two weeks now, I thought it really deserved a place in my favourites post. It's a deep-cleansing oil that is meant to remove excess sebum (oil), waterproof makeup and products that build up on skin before you use your daily cleanser. I think it really does remove everything from your face and I've noticed that my skin also feels softer than before I started using this product.

Simple Eye Makeup Remover Pads
I was looking for a good but cheap eye makeup remover. Even though I really like the Clinique one I wanted to try something else for a change. I the noticed one day at my local department store that they had brought some of the Simple products to Finland. I decide to try these pads and think they are simply amazing.

Clinique High Impact Mascara
Great everyday mascara. I used this a couple years ago and now I've really started to like it again. If you're after really long and thick eyelashes then this isn't something I'd go for but I do really like this on everyday basis.

Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara
I usually find it really difficult to apply mascara on my lower lashes with the big wands. With the Clinique Bottom Lash mascara however it's really easy because the wand is SO tiny and the mascara doesn't fall under your eyes which is amazing. Who likes panda eyes anyway? Haha.

The Body Shop All-in-One InstaBlur
The Body Shop InstaBlur primer. I'd say this stuff works like a dream. My makeup stays on the whole day. The consistency is a bit funny though, it's like a thick gel/jelly but it feels really nice when applied on the skin.

Real Techniques Deluxe Crease Brush
I was looking for a tiny brush to apply my concealer with and when I asked on Twitter what everyone would recommend, someone said they use one of their Real Techniques eye brushes. I then compared all of mine together and ended up thinking that the Deluxe Crease Brush is the perfect size for me when applying concealer and I've really liked using it for that.

And last but not least, I'd want to thank everyone who has followed my blog since I just reached 100 readers yesterday! *parties*
THANK YOU SO MUCH, I've been nothing but smiles the whole day! Stay tuned for a giveaway soon ;)

What have you been loving this month? Any of my favourites?

  1. Really want to try the installer! Tried the clinique pads and they are pretty good xxx

  2. I need that crease brush because I always feel like I irritate my under eyes with the constant rubbing >.< For the past month I have really liked Nivea Lip Balm in a coral color (can't remember the name). Congrats on the 100!

  4. I've used the simple wipes loads this month too! I think they are really kind to skin and get make up off really well!


  5. I am absolutely dying to try the Insta blur, I've heard nothing but good things! Great post, you picked well! :)


  6. If I want to use my fingers when I apply makeup under my eyes I always dab it but I prefer using a brush :). The brush comes in the Real Techniques Starter set with four other eye brushes in case you didn't know.
    Thanks for the recommendation and congratulation! Will check it out ;)

  7. Thank you Danielle! I'm in love with the Body Shop products. If you go through my posts you can see lots of them included, haha.
    Definitely do, I even prefer the InstaBlur over Laura Mercier's Foundation Primer :)

  8. They're my favourite makeup removers ever! :)
