As you all know I’m beyond obsessed with H&M Beauty. As a Beauty Editor, I try products all the time, and there is not much that I haven’t tried out really, so trust me when I say that the H&M Beauty range is among the best and most affordable products I’ve ever used. One of my many favorites is their Relaxing All Over Oil which is a moisturizing multi-use oil for body, bath, and hair. Ingredients as jojoba oil, rosemary extract and oil from grapes will leave your skin feeling revitalized and the scent is amazing, it is also very relaxing to use as a bath oil. I use this oil everyday, especially now that we need a little extra moisture around the holidays.
This palette is every busy girl’s dream. I’ve actually been looking for a palette like this for a while now, so when I found out that the talented Swedish beauty blogger Linda Hallberg had created a multi-use palette with eight colors for face and body, that can be used wet and dry, I immediately knew that it would be a great palette and I just had to try it out. I was hooked only after using the Infinity palette once, which usually never happens. The quality of the powders are amazing and blends effortlessly to leave you with a natural look.
I’m not a fan of highlighters that come in palettes for the simple reason that the quality is rarely as good as the ones you buy separately BUT the two highlighters “Virgio” and “Milky way” took me by surprise. Such beautiful and high-quality highlighters, not too glittery and they last all day, I couldn’t ask for more.
Now for some more good news… I think I found my contour shade in “Cigar”. As a woman with fair skin tone, I’m always on the hunt for the perfect contour shade and usually it’s either too dark or too light. I mean the struggle is real. The thing I mostly love about the Infinity Palette that there are no rules (I hate rules)!

Prepping the skin before makeup is very important for a flawless makeup that lasts all day but the process takes time especially when you’re in a rush. There is just too many products that go into prepping the skin in the morning, cleanser, moisturizer, SPF, primer, just too many to keep a track of. The Herbal day Créme by Ole Henriksen is a lightweight day cream packed with grapeseed oil and antioxidants that give the skin a luminous glow while protecting the skin from sun damage, premature aging and it has anti-inflammatory properties which are great to prevent the skin from breaking out. This moisturizer works perfectly as step 1 in your makeup routine, you get a moisturizer, SPF and due to its light formula, this product can also work as a primer.
I’ve been using this product for years and I can’t live without it. I can’t even remember what product I used before Bio-Oil entered my life. This product helps you get rid of your annoying skin problems, it helps make scars, stretch marks, uneven skin less prominent and it is also great for anti-aging and works as a moisturizer for dehydrated skin. Bio-Oil contains oil-based plant extracts, vitamins, and the breakthrough ingredients PurCellin Oil which makes the product easy for the skin to absorb, leaving a non-greasy feeling. I use Bio-Oil every day all over my face and body before I go to bed and in the morning as a facial moisturizer.
I sometimes use Bio-Oil as a primer before applying my makeup for a luminous finish, but it’s a secret don’t tell anyone.
