My current skin care routine (body edition) :)

Hello! I have noticed I don't post about my skin care at all, at least regarding body skin care, unless I am talking about my empties and giving short reviews :) So I thought why not make a bit different post than usual and just talk about my current skincare routine and products I am using at the moment :) 

First I need a good shower and I am currently using these three products: L'Occitane Jasmin & Bergamote shower gel, Palmolive Thermal spa mineral massage and Nivea creme peeling. First product is by L'Occitane and it's a really amazingly scented shower gel, which I have actually received last December from my boyfriend as a little treat for our anniversary, but haven't started using it right away. I actually wanted to really just take care of my shower gel stash and I did! One year later I no longer have over 10 new, not yet used shower gels at home, waiting for me to finally start using them. You may have noticed a lot of my shower gels in the empties posts, well that's also because I like to use them as a handwash. So at the moment, apart from the shower gels you can see here there is only one new waiting for me in the bathroom closet, and I bought that one this month as I am starting to run out of the Palmolive one. I know I could just waited and use the L'Occitane one first, but I really like to save this one and only use it a couple of times per week, as it's expensive and smells divine and I really just want it to last for as long as possible.. The other two I have bought myself and both were on my wishlist for a long time, but you can already guess why.. I needed to make some order and finish up products already bought and stored at home. Both are really good products and even my boyfriend likes to use them as they have fine scrubbing pearls inside and really do give a nice massage and a peel. I use Palmolive one a lot, almost every day, as it really is gentle and the pearls are soft, but the Nivea one is really a good peeling and it's enough to use it once per week. If you haven't noticed yet, the Palmolive one has a new look, the bottle looks different, but as much as I could see, the scent and the colour of the product is the same :) Sometimes I also use my body brush, usually I just use it to massage my legs, but I admit to being lazy and rarely using it. I will do better, I promise :P

Next step in my current skincare routine are these two lovely bright products, I am using Kozmetika Afrodita Anti- cellulite warming effect Garcinia 3v1  cellulite reduction cream and L'Occitane Lait Perfume body milk Fleur D'Or & Acacia.  I use the anti-cellulite cream only on my thighs, andonly in the evening. I had this product opened for a while now and I thought that it would be good to use it up. It was basically completely full, just opened. I don't know if there will be any visible difference after I finish this bottle or not, at the moment I have been using it for about two weeks and I haven't noticed much difference. I don't really believe in any sort of magic creams that would just erase all my past sins and junk food and no exercise, so I am not expecting much, If it will help just a bit, I will be quite satisfied. It's supposed to have warming effect, but honestly I don't feel anything and I don't know if it even works or not, or maybe I am expecting a strong warming effect and it's just subtle.. I don't know, but I will finish this product up in less than a week. I am also using this body milk by L'Occitane and it has amazing scent! I swear Fleur D'Or & Acacia is one of the most amazing smelling products L'Occitane ever offered. Aside from their Pivoine Sublime EdP, which I really loved too :P This is a very light milk that sinks into my skin really fast and nourishes well, but it's not for those with really dry skin, that need a richer, creamier texture. Anyway, I really love the scent any I swear my whole bed smells amazingly :P I would definitely repurchase, if it weren't so expensive...

And well, we all need good old deodorant or anti-perspirant. I am currently using two, one is by Nivea and it's their's Invisible Black&White and the other one is by Rexona and it's their version of Invisible black&white diamond. So both are supposed to protect my clothes from stains, and so far I can say they do what they promise. I have not noticed any traces of these two on my clothes, not even white marks after regular use. This is really importan to me as I am usually dressed in black or something dark and I really hate when my deodorant destroys my shirts, especially my metal t-shirts :P I really want them to stay whole and good for as long as possible as they are not cheap and I really try to take care of them and sometimes just try not to wear them too much, as they tend to go grey with regular washing, just like any other black t-shirt. Otherwise there is not much to say about my deodorants, I keep mxing these two brands, sometimes I buy Garnier also but that's mostly it. I find these two brands work best for me. I have tried crystal deodorants and natural ones and such, and well, they are simply not enough for me, I need something stronger. Sadly that means more chemicals, but at least I avoid unpleasant smells.

Before going to sleep and of course during the day, if I am home and if I remember to use hand creams, I like to use these two. One is by Nivea Soft Refreshing soft moisturizing cream and the other one is by Kozmetika Afrodita Hand & Nail care 2in1 Olive fast absorbing hand cream. I really like using both of these. What I like the most about these two is that they absorb really fast, and I mean really fast! :D The Nivea one is actually very universal and can be used on body or face as well, but I prefer to use it just as a hand cream and sometimes as a body cream. It's very light and has light scent, but it's not the classic Nivea (blue tin pot cream) scent, it's more fresh, but still very lovely. It sinks in really fast, but still Kozmetika Afrodita is faster. And now that hot weather is approaching I really appreciate a hand cream that doens't leave my hands sticky for half an hour... even while working on my computer, there is really minimum wait before I can start typing again. I also find the Kozmetika Afrodita one a bit more nourishing, at least my cuticles and nails like her a lot, they seem healthier and well nourished, while the Nivea one is an all over cream and doesn't work for my nails and cuticles that well. Anyway, love both of them, and of course use them daily :)

And the last group of products are my lip balms. I had a really hard time deciding which ones I like best as I tend to use at least five different lip balms through out the day, and well.. the choice was really hard! I kinda decided to present just three, the ones I find most nourishing at the moment and the ones I would definitely use before going to sleep. I am presenting here Nuxe Reve de miel, of course, plus you can read the review here :) I am also loving Le Petit Olivier lip balm stick with anti-aging argan oil and Labello Pure&Natural Olive & Lemon. Le Petit Olivier one is a bit more greasy, needs longer to settle in and gives a lot of moisture, which is great but I don't like using it under lipsticks and such. For that matter neither Nuxe fits, as it's simply too waxy, so best choice is Labello. Labello doens't nourish as much as the other two, but I've been loving this lip balm since it came out and I can't imagine my life without it. For a time it wasn't in my stash and I really just went with my hand over my box of lip balms on my desk and I would hover around it until I would remember I still haven't bought another one. If memory serves me this Pure &Natural came out about 9 years ago, I think, because I loved it since highschool. Anyway, all three are the ones that I wuld use before going to sleep on a regular basis, or if I needed an extra kick of moisture. There are a couple of other lip balms I love to use to get my lips hydrated but those will have to wait for a special lip balm post. I had it prepared and photographed for months now and in that time I got some new lip blams and well.. I need to update my post before it's  posted :)

How about you? Have you tried any of these, would you like to? Leave me a comment if you had any of these products and let me know how they worked for you!
