my top 10 beauty products

I decided to show you my must-have beauty products, the ones I really love and use the most. It wasn’t hard at all to think which ones I wanted to include in this, all of these have an important part in my everyday life! ;) You probably know what I mean, everyone has the certain products, from which you know for sure when it ends you’ll buy a new one. If you like this post, maybe I could do the same about my essential make up products… Anyway, here we go, the top ten!

Setvin vähän mun kauneudenhoitotuotteista sitä top kymppiä, eli niitä tuotteita joita käytän eniten, ja jotka on mulle ihan ylitse muiden. Ei se oikeastaan ollut kovin vaikeaa, tietyistä tuotteista on kehkeytynyt korvaamattomia ja niitä jotka tuntuvat rutiineissa jo itsestäänselvyyksiltä. Voisin meikkituotteista tehdä vastaavanlaisen jutun, jos tykkäätte!

beauty8

Victoria’s Secret body lotions. They smell the best, the bottles are cute, they are easy to apply and dry very quick. I apply lotion always after taking a shower, and it’s annoying if you have to wait for the lotion to dry before you get dressed, or feel sticky in clothes.

Victoria’s Secretin vartalovoiteet. Tuoksuvat niin parhailta ja putelit söpöjä. Ja tietysti itse voide testattu hyväksi, levittyy helposti ja kuivuu nopeasti. Joka suihkun jälkeen aina rasvailen ja se on ärsyttävintä jos joutuu odottelemaan ikuisuuden voiteen kuivumista, tai sitten pukea päälle ja olla tahma-ololla.

beauty7

Essie’s two perfect nail polishes: deep red called ‘Bordeaux‘ and a perfect light pink/nude called ‘Allure‘. I could survive with only these two through this season. (On the picture I’m wearing the lighter one)

Essien kaksi täydellisintä kynsilakkasävyä: aivan tummanpunainen ‘Bordeaux‘ ja vaalea nude ‘Allure‘. Pärjäisin näillä kahdella koko talven. (Kuvassa mulla on juuri kynsissä tuota nudea)

beauty5

Day cream Biotherm Aquasource, and night cream Lumene Bright now Vitamin C. The day cream is like light gel but still moisturizing, and the night cream feels so smooth on skin like it could work also daytime. But this is the combo I’m using right now, and my skin has been liking these two a lot! (Night cream gifted from Lumene)

Päivävoidesuosikki Biothermin Aquasource, ja uusi yövoide-suosikki Lumenen Bright now Vitamin C. Toi päivävoide on geelimäinen ja kevyt, mutta silti hyvin kosteuttava. Lumenen yövoide myös ihan loistava, tuntuu iholla niin smoothilta, voisi varmaan talven kuivalla iholla toimia päivävoiteenakin. Tälläinen combo mulla siis ollut nyt käytössä, ja iho tuntuu tykkäävän todella! (Jälkimmäinen voide saatu Lumenelta)

beauty6

St. Tropez self tan mousse. I don’t use self tan very often, but when I do (and in wintertime I’ll start again!), it’s this one. This has been a favorite for so many years, the only one that doesn’t give me patches when the tan starts to fade away.

St. Tropez itseruskettava mousse. En käytä itseruskettavia usein, mutta silloin kun käytän (talvella varmaankin taas!), niin se on tätä. Tämä on ainoa itseruskettava josta mulle ei jää läikkiä, kun rusketus alkaa häipymään. Monien vuosien lemppari!

beauty4

Klippoteket dry shampoo is probably the cheapest one that there is, but after trying so many different ones this is still the best. The Moroccan oil I use to the ends of my hair every time after washing, it feels so luxurious and leaves hair a silky feeling. Brushing is much easier after applying this, and that I always do with Tangle Teezer. The comb I just had to add in the picture, since I don’t how I’d survive without it. A light back-comb in the roots of my hair (after dry shampoo) has become a routine.

Klippoteketin kuivashampoo on ehkä halvinta mitä löytyy, mutta kaikkien kokeilujen jälkeen tähän astisista parhainta. Moroccan oilia levitän hiuksiin joka pesun jälkeen, harjaaminen onnistuu sen jälkeen helposti ja jää silkkinen tuntu niihin latvoihin. Harjaamisen teen aina Tangle Teezerillä, ei revi tukkaa. Ja tupeerauskampa oli pakko lisätä kuvaan, se on vain tullut niin perusrutiiniksi mulle, että kuivashampoon jälkeen tyveen kevyttä tupeerausta.

beauty3

Aussie hair spray. By the amount of the bottles you can tell I really like this, I have to have a couple extra ones just in case…

Aussien hiuslakka. Pullojen määrästä voi varmaan jo päätellä, että tykkään. Piti varastoon ostaa muutama extra ihan varmuuden vuoksi…

beauty9

Couldn’t decide of my top three perfumes which is the best: Daisy by Marc Jacobs, L’Eau par Kenzo and Pretty by Elizabeth Arden. The first one is just fresh, second one a little bit salty and nautical, third is girly and sweet. Depends on my mood and occasion which one I wear, but almost always some of these.

En osannut mun top kolme hajuvesistä päättää sitä parasta, eli: Marc Jacobsin Daisy, L’Eau par Kenzolta ja Elizabeth Ardenin Pretty. Ensimmäinen on raikas, toinen merellinen ja aavistuksen suolainen, kolmas tyttömäisen makea. Mielentilasta riippuu mitä hajuvettä käytän, mutta melkein aina se on jokin näistä!

beauty2

Make Up Store Body velvet. It’s like a body oil that you can spray on skin, smells incredibly good and gives a nice glow to skin. Huge plus for the fact that there isn’t any glitter on this, like in many glowy skin products there is.

Make Up Storen Body velvet. Sprayattava kevyt öljy, aivan mielettömän hyvän tuoksuinen ja antaa kivan hehkun, ilman mitään glitteriä.

Any similar favorites?

Kellään samoja lemppareita?

    Great list! I love almost every single VS body lotion that there is, I’m also using MJ Daisy perfume myself, Moroccan Oil is also part of my hair care routine and of course Essie nail polishes are taking majority of space in my nail polish box. :)

    You got me interested to try out the Aussie hair spray ;)

  4. Your products are so pretty. I have sensitive skin so I have to be careful, but nice post all the same. The VS lotions look good. I can’t believe I’ve haven’t tried them yet.

    I love the VS stuff, too bad we don’t have a store in Germany. But my best friend is in Singapore right now and he had a long list for VS haha. Which one is your all time fav? :)

    I also love Essie, my fav shades are some of the limited 2013 collections. :) but your Bordeaux one is perfect for autumn! How much do they cost in Finland? Here it’s about 8 euros.

    And Aussie hairspray, yes. When I was in Helsinki this summer I bought 3 bottles for myself since they only sell the shampoo and conditioner here :( haha.

    My fav brand for skin care is Rituals, I guess you know it ;) and I’m using a lot of products from them. Day and night cream, peeling, shower gel and maybe the most important product is my hand balm. I’m always having dry hands and the the one from rituals is dry very quickly and it gives my hands a smooth touch :)

    Oh sorry for my long answer :(

    • marianna marianna says:

      My all-time favorite of the VS scents so far is Sheer Love. :) The Essie polishes are bit more expensive in Finland, something like 13-14 euros each. I’m planning to buy some new ones when I’m in New York, so much cheaper!

      I love Rituals too! Haha long answers are fun :D Thank you! X

      • Anna says:

        Yes, in America they have so many shades… I guess you’ll find a few good ones! :) I’m currently waiting for the fall collection.

        You should try coconut passion when you like coconut :) I love it! :) and I guess I’ll give sheer love a try, all my friends are talking about it :D

        You’ve to go to New York with empty cases ;) haha

    I love VS products and Essie nail polishes, for me they aye the best !

  15. bettiina says:

    En voi olla kyllä samaa mieltä ton Klippoteketin kuivashampoon kanssa. Ostin joskus sen Hulluilta päiviltä, kun lähti niin halvalla, ja kerran kokeilun jälkeen heitin pois. Haisi pahalta, eikä tehnyt sitä mitä kuivashampoiden pitäisi (eli poistaisi sitä ylimäärästä rasvasuutta ja tekisi hiuksista ilmavat). Omasta kokemuksesta paras kuivashampoo on Kickseissä myynnissä oleva Batiste (ja näin tummahiuksisena se tummille hiuksille tarkoitettu versio).

    • marianna marianna says:

      Ite tykkään siitä tuoksusta ja mulla se toimii, oon Batisteakin kokeillut (en kyllä tota tummille tarkoitettua vaan jotain xxl-juttua) mutta siitä tuli vähän likainen tuntu hiuksiin. Kai se on todettava että eri hiuslaaduille vain toimii eri tuotteet!

  16. lisa says:

    you should try essie’s “ladylike” – such an amazing nude/rose colour.perfect for autumn !

  17. Monica says:

    Thanks for sharing! Your photographs are amazing, by the way. I actually don’t use any of these products, but I definitely want to try some of the VS body lotions and the Aussie shampoo! Xx

    Great idea for post! For me it’s very interesting, I have my favourites too. I can’t imagine my daily routine without some of them. For example soft lotions for body and matte cream for face. I’m happy you show us your best cosmetics and recomend them, maybe I try ones :) Take care of skin and hair is important and it’s worth buying good quality products.

    Interesting post! Can you please also do a post on your essential Make-up Products? :)

  42. simo says:

    this post is too much inspiring! :) I’d like to try the VS body lotions, I can not find an ideal product for the body.
    I love the Essie polishes me too! I prefer them even to Chanel, apart from an unhealthy and unhappy passion for the Rouge Noir… two times I had to throw it before finished, because it became too thick :(
    If you decide to write the post on make up products, could you please write what is your fav cleanser? I use an Avene lotion but I am not really convinced, so your suggestion would be helpful! :)

    • marianna marianna says:

      Thank you!! I agree about the quality of Essie polish, it’s really good even compared to way more expensive ones! Oh my favorite cleanser, it’s Kiehl’s Ultra facial cleanser. It’s really effective basic cleanser! :)

  43. Jessica says:

    Love the post :) you should really do video posts of your hair and makeup routines! That would be amazing!!

  47. I want to try the Victoria’s Secret lotions so badly!! I’ve heard so many good thing about them =D Is the tangle teaser any good? I’ve seen it around but don’t know much about it..maybe you could do a review and give us your thoughts?

  48. Apart from your outfit posts these kind of posts are one of my favorite to read.
    We have quite similar taste concerning beauty products, I’m also loving VS body lotions & shower gels and Aussie hair care. I think I will try the Tangle Teezer, seems amazing for knotted hair.
    It would also be interesting to read your top 10 makeup products and who knows maybe make a post about your top 10 fashion & accessories (jewelry, bags & shoes) items.
    Thank you for your tips!

    Tuo kuivashampoo on kyllä aivan loistavaa! Se on ainoa, mitä olen koskaan käyttänyt, ja mietin pitäisikö joskus kokeilla jotain muutakin, mutta jos muutkin on sitä mieltä että se vaan toimii niin mitä sitä turhia vaihtamaan! Ja teehän toki tällainen myös meikkituotteista, oikein kiva postaus :)

    Hello Mariannan,

    I really love your blog. I´d never followed anybody before but your style is so similar to mine, that I could not resist. Your posts are very inspiring. Thank you for Aussie hair spray suggestion. I moved to England few months ago and I could not find any hair spray which would actually work for my hair and after reading your post I got one of Aussie hair sprays and I absolutely love it.. it is exactly what I was looking for.. I got some of their other hair products as well and I am very very satisfied with them. I´m gonna try Moroccan oil as well.
    Thanks again.
