Monthly Favorites: November

It’s that time of the month again, when I post my monthly favorites, and I know I’ve said it before but time just flies by! Here are some of my most used and favorite products from the month of November.

Harmoni Vita Lip Balm with Aloe Vera
This lip balm is a product I think you’ll only find in Norway unfortunately It’s very budget friendly (I got 2 for about 3-4 euros) so you get a lot for your money. Overall this is a very simple lip balm with nourishing ingredients, it leaves my lips very smooth and I know I’ll be using it a lot this winter.

Chanel #637 Malice
This is a deep, dark red with ruby red shimmer and one of my favorite nail polishes from Chanel so far! This is such a rich, sophisticated and glamorous color with a ruby shimmer that catches the light really well. Malice gives a beautiful glossy finish, which really enhances every ruby facet Read my full review here.

Taaj Créme Pieds Detox
I bought this foot cream at a French pharmacy in August but haven’t really started using it before now. As the rest of my body, my feet are also dryer than normal at this time of the year and this cream is a delight to use after a long day. It is really refreshing and it’s supposed to repair, detoxify and release the feet as well. It is also supposed to prevent bacteria from proliferation thanks to Basil, an ancient plant known for its detoxifying effects.

Aussie Frizz Remedy 3 Minute Miracle Deep Treatment
My hair can get quite frizzy and “electrical” in winter time and a little bit of this lovely treatment helps prevent that. I’m very careful to only put a little bit as too much can easily weigh down my hair. This deep treatment is a lifesaver after photoshoots and my hair is full of different products. It really works wonders at helping knots and tangles just wash out, which is great! I also love the scent Aussie have added to their products.

Alpha-H Balancing Cleanser
This cleanser from Alpha-H was my in my Monthly Favorites October post too and along with the Bioderma it’s the only cleanser I’ve been using the last two months.  What I love about this cleanser is that it’s very gentle, soft and lightly scented. Despite this it does leave skin feeling well cleansed. It leaves my skin moisturized, clean and soft and it is really pleasant to use as it has no perfume. It has everything I look for in a cleaner, the fact that it doesn’t sting when used over the eyes is a huge plus too!

Petit Gris Regenerating Anti-Age Cream
I’ve been using this cream for 3 weeks now and I’ve really seen an improvement in my skin every since. This cream contains 72% snail secretion filtrate which is said to aid in skin regeneration, healing cuts and fighting off infections. I have written a review about another cream from Petit Gris, read it here. The formula of this anti-aging cream helps soften and reduce fine lines and wrinkles, counteract oxidation and hydrate. I have definitely seen the effects of this cream, my skin appears much smoother and more radiant. A full review will come soon.

What about you guys, what are your monthly favorites? Any new discoveries? :)
