Skincare & Make-up Wishlist

skincare make-up wishlist caudalie benefit clinique la mer chanel
Today I want to talk a bit about the skincare and make-up products I want to try out. I like to look for new beauty products right before the holiday season because they are great gifts either to treat yourself or for a friend/relative.

CLINIQUE recently launched the Pep-Start collection which I'm dying to try. You know I'm a huge fan of the brand! It includes an eye-cream, a moisturizer and an exfoliating cleanser.
From this brand there are some products I want to buy after trying them out and giving them a thumbs up: the airbrush concealer, the moisture surge cream and the Clinique pop lipstick (on sweet pop, it's the prettiest shade of pink).

French brand CAUDALIE is also on my wishlist. I've heard great things about the resveratrol products. The secret to its success is the combination of vine resveratrol (firmness, anti-wrinkles) and hyaluronic acid (moiturizing, plumping).

We all know that BENEFIT cosmetics has the prettiest packaging, plus they are from San Francisco! Those two reasons plus the quality of their products make me want to try the Cheekathon palette which includes different shades of blushes and bronzers.

From CHANEL's skincare I'd like the try Le Weekend. Again, I've heard great reviews about this one. This description summarizes what it can do for you "Enhances renewal and replenishes hydration to give skin a much-needed weekend break. Combined with relaxing Rose Water, a gentle Glycolic Acid Complex is gradually released for ideal exfoliation and lasting moisture. Skin is softer and more luminous for the week ahead." Sounds tempting, right?

LA MER is also a pricey brand but I believe in how good the products are. I'm currently using their moisturizing soft cream at night. You can read a review of it and the rest of my skincare routine here.

I don't have a big variety of nail polish even though I like painting my nails. I'm thinking of getting new shades for winter from ESSIE and CHANEL.

And last but not least we can't forget about the body! I must confess I take a lof of care of my face but I sometimes forget the rest of my skin has needs too, especially in winter. I recently started exfoliating with a glove when I shower but I also want to try the KIEHL's body scrub. It comes in 3 different scents: coriander, lavander and grapefruit. As for moisturizers I want to try NUXE's huile prodigieuse which you can use on body, face and hair.(I think this one is more appropriate for summer though) and CLINIQUE's gelato body cream. It comes in three scents: Sugared Petals, Berry Blush, or original Clinique Happy—the citrus-and-floral fragrance. And again, how cute is the packaging?
Have you tried any of these products? Let me know on the comments below.

  1. Great picks, Cristina! I tried Caudalie eye cream and it was amazing! Loved the Clinique lipstick too - I own a few of them in different colors, but this nude shade that you picked in my favorite! Also, you can't go wrong with Essie -- all of their products are amazing!

  2. I have the Cheekathon palette and I love it.

  3. I have always wanted to try La Mer! It looks so good

  4. I just discovered Caudalie. I have the Vinoperfect tinted moisturiser and i love it!

  5. My mom uses La Mer and is obsessed with it! Someday!

  6. Me gustaría probar la crema hidratante de La Mer y el serúm porque me han hablado muy bien de ellas ; es verdad que son un poco caras pero al final vale la pena porque el resultado es el esperado y la piel te queda espectacular , soy de las que piensa que la piel de nuestro cuerpo y cutis es nuestra primera carta de presentación y si no la cuidamos con productos adecuados a la larga la vamos a estropearla.
