This a general post of products I have been loving in 2021 that would make a nice addition to your haircare, makeup or skincare arsenal; it’s in no way comprehensive because I’m doing this last minute but it includes products that spoke to me all year round or recently impressed me!

Haircare

Osocurly mist spray bottle, scrunchies and shampoo brush: These 3 items have become a staple for my haircare routine from shampooing to sleep protection.

Innersense Organic Beauty Shampoo & Foam: I like the entire collection, but my standouts are the shampoo and the foam, if I had to choose something to try first it would be these two items. The Foam enhances definition and plays well with others and the shampoo cleanses gently but effectively.

Nature Lab Tokyo Clarifying Scalp Scrub: My favorite scalp scrub, I use it about once a month with my shampoo brush and it helps exfoliate my scalp and feels lush and relaxing. Pictured here is the travel size because I ran out of the full size and I’m determined to use up my travel sizes before repurchasing.

Makeup

For makeup I will share a few bits and pieces that I have been reaching out during the year and that I have been loving.

Huda beauty medium nude obsessions palette: I love this palette so much that I even attended a wedding wearing it, so it’s safe to say it’s among my favorite palettes. It’s travel friendly and I think it suits every skin tone.

Lily Lolo pressed bronzer in Honolulu: This has become a quick favorite of mine in the last couple of weeks, so I thought I’d share it with you. This shade looks pretty dark in the pan but it’s actually very buildable and well suited for Light-Medium (my skin tone) to Tan skin but they have 2 other shades that might suit lighter and deeper skin tones than mine.

Rituel de Fille Metamorphic highlighter in The Siren: This is a very pretty cream highlighter that I find myself reaching for frequently. The first time I used it I dipped my dirty highlighter brush in and it changed the beautiful shade to what it’s shown in the picture but on the skin it looks great now that I use my fingers to apply it, it has a bit of a learning curve but it’s my fave.

Missha perfect cover BB cream SPF 42/ PA+++ No 27 Honey Beige: This was my go to BB cream all summer and now in the colder months it’s still a staple of mine. It offers medium coverage and it’s very lightweight giving that second skin feeling that I love.

Sol de Janeiro Brazilian kiss cupuaçu lip butter in Doce de Leite: My favorite lip balm perfect for winter lip care so I highly recommend that you add this to your collection, not a makeup item per sé but a necessary item nonetheless.

Skincare

To not make it too long I’m including just a few skincare products that have really impressed me and hope they impress you too.

100%pure Bright Eyes: This eye mask is just golden it does what it promises: depuff and brighten and I enjoy using it. They come in a pack of 5 and this is my last one! I need to get more because I love it.

Missha Propolis Mascure sheet mask: This mask is my favorite as it gives a wonderful glow right after you use it. I also find the experience quite enjoyable, I also like the guaiazulene mask but I didn’t have one at hand and in all honesty this was the only sheet mask I have ever photographed when I received it.

Missha Time Revolution The first treatment essence Rx: This is a cult classic and what better moment to stock up on it than black Friday. It’s a very lightweight essence, that brightens the skin and refreshes the complexion. I have been using this for a long time and even though I have tried other essences this one is still my favorite for some reason.

Real Barrier Extreme Cream: I recently won this moisturizer in a giveaway and it’s just so lovely I had to include it my black Friday Recommendations because I think it’s perfect for winter. It has a thick texture, is fragrance free (ideal for anyone with sensitivity, not my case but I still mention it in case that’s important for you), absorbs easily into the skin and leaves it well moisturized.

Sol de Janeiro Brazilian 4 play Moisturizing shower cream-gel: This product is a very recent discovery, but I include it as a bonus because the scent is fantastic. Everyone knows the bum bum cream scent is delicious, well this one is better and I’m just in love with how this shower gel leaves my skin feeling. I bought a travel size but I highly recommend you get the full size as you are bound to love it if you like fragrant, relaxing experiences in the shower like me.

Well, that’s it for my impromptu black Friday Recommendations post, I hope you enjoyed it and happy shopping!
