Here in Paris we don’t get to experience every seasons thoughout the year. That is why shopping for fall essentials also mean that winter is on its way. But wait… shopping… yes but with limited budget ? Me too. Don’t worry drugstores are made for us !
When it comes to fall and winter, my lips are my top priority and Labello SOS Lip Repair is my savior. But not only my lips get dry, I tend to sleep less because of school and all the work so before going to sleep I use La Neige water bank eye gel cream (high-end) and then in the morning to look less like Voldemort from Harry Potter Garnier Caffeine Eye Roll-On keeps me ready for the day as well as Vichy Normaderm 3 in 1 Cleanser. During this time of the year all you want is to finish your skin care routine as quickly as possible. No need of tones of makeup. A fresh and natural looking face with L’Oréal Eau de Teint, Neutrogena Healthy Skin Blush and Maybelline Dream Sun Trio. Final touch of color with UNE Breezy Lips Balm.
Moisturizing after a shower or everyday is essential to maintain a healthy-looking skin but first Eucerin Plus Intensive Repair Foot Cream to be ready for a long walking day. In the shower, once a week, remove dead skin cells thanks to Le Petit Marseillais Shower Exfolliant helps your skin to regenerate. Of course you can’t leave home without pretty hands and in my opinion Le Petit Olivier Shea Butter Hand Cream is the best. Now about that glow Vaseline Healing Serum and Lubriderm Lotion will do the job. Both worth buying (besides the fact that it is inexpensive). No need to tan except if you are still wearing skirt and crop top.
It is well-known that blondes during summer fade to a light brown in fall. It is maybe not as revelant for brunettes but still John Frieda Brilliant Brunette is a good help to get this colorless hair back to life and talking about John Frieda, which I love, their Full Repair Conditioner is good for damaged hair which is the case of 90% of the people out there. Moving on, if you are a fan of OGX shampoo scents don’t get me wrong but Biotin & Collagen Shampoo is your fall/winter alternative. But of course whose hair can keep up without a mask ? Trust me L’Oréal Elseve Total Repair will give you faith in “hair goal”.
As for nail polish, nothing extraordinary to explain. As far as I’m concerned, fall and winter colors are either dark purple-ish red or cold light colors. I think having pretty hands also come with pretty nails and to catch attention on your nails nothing better than Covergirl Snow Storm or Bourjois It’s Raining Stars and why not both for a beautiful nailart. Then more classical colors with Essie Thigh High and Fifth Avenue, must-haves ! To end this never-ending blog post that I hope you enjoyed, Revlon Wintermint is a cute blue-ish turquoise. What are your essentials except psl ?
