#ItWorks! Finding a Beauty Advice that Works. My May 2018 Beauty Favorites.

No foundation was used in the making of this post

I'd like to share a story with you.

As a beauty enthusiast, I find myself looking for new products all the time. I made some reflection following my several visits to cosmetics stores and truly realized just how many options there are currently for women. It can be easy to get lost in this space!

And I thought to myself:

I would love to see more effective beauty recommendations online.

In reality, how often do we find one that actually works? Indeed, there are countless beauty recommendations online. But at the same time, only a tiny proportion of them will lead us to a beauty product of our dreams.

We all deserve an honest beauty advice.

We need to enjoy more moments when we know that money was well spent on a beauty product that delivered its promise.

Upon this realization, I decided that I should continue sharing with you my beauty favorites on the blog. For me it goes without saying that a beauty review is based on the real experience and me actually seeing the product work.

In this post I'm sharing with you my May 2018 beauty favorites. The post is not sponsored.

#1 Japanese Matcha Tea Pollution Clearing Mask by The Bodyshop

Japanese Matcha Tea Pollution Clearing Mask by The Bodyshop
Our matcha cravings were heard

You possibly already know about my love for matcha. I was always curious about using it topically knowing about its detoxifying properties. And gladly I found this beauty product, which I now use when I have my matcha cravings & when I need a quick pampering act for my skin.

Japanese Matcha Tea Pollution Clearing Mask by The Bodyshop Review Kirasha
100% vegan mask that delivers purity & radiance

What it does: purifies, detoxifies your skin.

What I love about it: a short time period to purify, not over-drying, skin feels clarified & fresh after

How I use it: leave it on for 3-4 min. Wash off completely. Follow up with a hydrating product.

#2 Cucumber & Sage Facial Cleansing Towelettes by Burt's Bees

Love me some cucumbers! Cucumbers + sage combination will help clarify your skin. In the hot weather, when my skin tends to become more oily, I feel that it is a much needed thing.

Cucumber & Sage Facial Cleansing Towelettes by Burt's Bees Review Kirasha
Cucumbers are great for skin as they are full of vitamins

What it does: cleanses

What I love about it: leaves my skin fresh & does not irritate it. the smell is pleasant

How I use it: use it as a very first step of facial cleansing, followed by further cleansing of course

#3 Thai Makrut Lime Firming Oil, SPA OF THE WORLD by The Body Shop

My love for body oils is never ending. And when I find a natural oil - then I know I am doing good for my skin. I love to use body oil especially in the summer time.

hai Makrut Lime Firming Oil, SPA OF THE WORLD by The Body Shop Review Kirasha
Thai + Body Oil+ Lime Combination: yes, please

This product I saw first in the magazine and got intrigued.

What it does: hydrates, without being "too oily"

What I love about it: the scent that is not overwhelming but pleasant, the fact that it consists mainly of natural ingredients

How I use it: it is so good to apply on skin right after the shower. it is refreshing! BTW, this is actually a massage oil...So massage yourself freely after the shower & a scrubbing ritual :)

#4 Aurora Illuminating Mask by OOZOO Bear

Aurora Illuminating Mask by OOZOO Bear Review
A 2-step sheet mask that delivers its promise

Wow! This tissue mask has worked wonders. It is a 2-step mask: but the process is uncomplicated.

What it does: gives glow and real skin hydration

What I love about it: it is a rare example of a sheet mask that works. however, from my experience, the results are best seen the following day. it also contains one my favorite ingredients that is actually proven to remove/reduce wrinkles & give glow: hyaluronic acid

How I use it: I use it the evening. it is important to note because this is not a kind of mask that will give glow the same day. it will, however, work its magic the following day

#5 NARSissist Wanted Eyeshadow Palette by NARS

NARSissist Wanted Eyeshadow Palette by NARS Review
Limited-edition of 12 pigmented eyeshadows in 1 palette

I love nude eyeshadow palettes! And my top pick at the moment is one by NARS.

NARSissist Wanted Eyeshadow Palette by NARS Review Kirasha
You can tell which colors I used the most :)

What it does: a go-to nude eyeshadow palette for all eye colors

What I love about it: some colors are unique, and look AMAZING especially on a tan skin. you can see how much I used it in a month

How I use it: I literally use my fingers to apply the colors: hence the messy look of the palette, sorry!

Let me know if you tried these products and how do they work for you? Would you like to see my

all-time favorites?

PS: Stay tuned to my Instagram, as I will be hosting a beauty giveaway quite soon ;)

Dear FenomenalBeauty,

First of all, I'd like to thank you for your time and your feedback! It is a great joy to read your message. Your feedback makes want to pursue.

I am also happy to read that you enjoyed my previous recommendation of Dr Jart mask.

Now, let's clarify your questions:)

You will see that the order has changed up a bit; that's because I just added another product which I feel the world needs to know about (tip: it's a body oil!)

Hey Kirasha!

Your previous posts on your website and particularly this one is always a breath of fresh air!

I truly agree with you that nowadays, it is very easy to "get lost" in the space of skin care products for women and in reality most beauty recommendations online are not effective, if not worse than that. (p.s. most of them are sponsored...) That being said, it couldn't have been said better:

" We all deserve an honest beauty advice. "

Presently I have been looking for a product that will help me to purify and detoxify my face, as I have been encountering several negative effects due to the daily dose of urban pollution on my skin...

I haven't…


Let me know what you think?
