Last month I started with new posts on my monthly beauty & make up favorites. You can see my September favorites here.
What I am doing basically is, I write about my favorite beauty and make up products. Every month I am trying out and reviewing new products. And I recommend the ones I liked most.
If you have followed me in the past, you know I am very picky when it comes to the skincare products. I am ready to spend more money just to get the best quality. In today´s post I am sharing some very special discoveries with you.
I was reading about anti-pollution skincare a few weeks ago and got alerted about the impact the pollution can have on our skin. Did you know that the pollution can cause uneven skin tone, dehydration, dark spots and expedited aging? This is why I was looking for a product protecting my skin from such damage. After some research I decided to go for Biotherm SKIN OXYGEN* line, enriched with Chlorella algae extract. I was really curious about the impact of Chlorella so I just had to try it out! I am always using the lotion before applying the daily moisturizer, this is why I have been using both: BIOTHERM SKIN OXYGEN Cooling Gel and BIOTHERM SKIN OXYGEN Lotion
Why did I choose exactly those products?
- This particular skincare line contains ingredients which claim detoxifying powers
- The products contain antioxidant and anti-pollution active complex
- They reinforce the skin barrier and moisturize intensively stressed skin
Living in a city, having basically two jobs and cold and windy weather outside – this is a perfect choice for stressed and dry skin! I am very happy with the results – I can now keep my skin protected and clean. In particular I like the gel texture of this cream. It is quickly absorbed into the skin and it´s super easy to apply foundation afterwards. And its fresh, pleasant fragrance! I will definitely be using these two products through entire winter time.
My October make up favorites are a super cute Chanel red lipstick and Chanel nail polish in a matching color! In summer I was all over nude but now in fall I prefer to be more colorful. As I don´t tan my face, my skin tone is pretty light in fall and winter time. Using stronger colors just give my face more shine. I am totally obsessed with Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet number 46.
I am so much in love with this red! And I even found a matching nail polish, which is sometimes really difficult! But this Chanel nail polish number 552 matches the lipstick just perfectly – and my wardrobe (which mostly consists of light, beige and nude colors in winter). No other color could compliment better than this red! Don´t you think so?

I feel so much better when wearing red! LOL
