Ok ok, I know I'm a little bit late on this but hey! Prolonged holiday cheer!
I've decided that this here I'm going to split my favourite to at least three parts (skincare etc, make up, book and lifesyle maybe?), so tonight I'm going to show you my favourite skincare products of 2013! There have been lots of discoveries, but to me, the biggest discovery of all was to actually rediscover products I had forgotten I even had and loved, which are bigger and better than any other innovative product that's coming out! So, let's begin!

1. L'Oreal Skin Perfection Miracle Cleansing Oil
The reason why I tried this is because I was either reading rave reviews or bad one. There was nothing in between. So I thought, what the heck, let's try it for myself! I was also super chuffed that my local HC had 20% off all L'Oreal skincare, so it was meant to be. Not to ramble more, 'cause I'm planning on reviewing this, this is AMAZEBALLS! It melts your makeup right off, cleanses your skin like hell, and leaves it feeling incredibly soft and moisturised. Compared to other cleansing oils in the market, this is definitely one of the best options that also comes in a quarter of the price! I will definitely picking more of this over the next months!

2. Bioten cleansing gel-cream with Cotton Extract
Seriously, what can I say about this. I am in my third tube and when it runs out, I will buy more. It's inexpensive, organic, moisturising, smells DIVINE and can also be used as a make up remover as well as a cleanser. Read my full review on this here

3. Sunsilk Leave-in Conditioner for dry-damaged hair

I don't often use Sunsilk products, but for some reason, this little baby could not NOT be in this list. It smells amazing and moisturises my dry ends like no other. I wasn't really impressed by the other products in the range except for this, which I'm already finishing the fourth bottle. A little goes a long way and it's quite inexpensive too. Seriously, check this out if you haven't already.

4. Garnier Hydra Match moistiriser for normal skin(blue)
Despite me having dry skin, I have found that this baby moisturises it like hell. Don't get me wrong, I'm no weirdo, the moisturiser for dry skin in the range didn't do a thing to my thirsty skin. I'm always on the look out for new things to est out and maybe find the 'perfect' moisturiser, but until then, this little guy stays on my vanuty! Read my full review here

5. Balea body scrub in Indian Chai

I have tried several body scrubs over the last few months and I only keep getting back to this. It exfoliates well, leaves my skin incredibly soft and smells like heaven. Cherry on the top: It's so freaking affordable, but so hard to find. As this particular one is limited edition, I'm gonna ask my dear best friend to fetch me some more to try from Germany! Read my full review here

6. Garnier Beauty Oil
One thing: If this ever came out in perfume, I would buy it. It's so fruity and feminine! It is the perfect thing for summer, but you can also wear it during winter. It doesn't crease, doesn't stain clothes and absorbs immediately. Definitely one of the best products Garnier's released this year.

7. Nail Polish Remover Sponges

This is only photographed, because it's the only one I got right now, but seriously, nail polish remover sponges have been huge this year. I have tried the most I've spotted here. From the more pricey to the more affordable. And they all do the job. No fuss. Shimmer nail polish? Off. Glitter? Off. This little boy here cost me 1.50 from Jumbo(how embarassing) and it's actually pretty good! All hail to polish remover sponges!

8.Nivea In-Shower Body Moisturiser

I am so stupid I forgot to even photograph this, but seriously... it is AMAZEBALLS! I have the ones that's aimed at normal skin, just because I find the typical blue nivea creme scent the one aimed at dry skin has, appalling. It's soooo good. No fuss. Get in the shower, wash, then put this one, then rinse off and voila! Full review is coming soon. Promise.

9. Schwarzkopf Gliss Heat Protectant Spray

I don't particularly have any big problems with my hair except for dry end, thus I don't need to use alota products. But I regularly use hair straighteners, whether that is to straighten or curl my hair. This products, I've been using for almost 2 years and it keeps my hair in better condition, plus it prevent my ends from splitting this often! a must-have!

10. Kings & Queens Queen Elizabeth Sugar Body Butter

Oh my. I actually discovered this in December but it was so good not to mention it. I use it daily. Day and night. The scent is quite sweet and sugary, thus the name, and it is incredible moisturising. The thing that love about this is that it feels quite luxurious really and such a pamper for your skin. I am now eager to try more of their stuff. They all smell amazing!

11. Noxema Memories Deodorant

OK. The most random thing someone could fit in their list is probably deodorant. But hey, I always keep coming back to this. Whatever new deodorant I try, is not nearly as good as this. I'm sure most of you are familiar with this, but if you're not, then please do try it! The scent is lovely too!

That's it boys and girls, for my skincare, bodycare, etc favourited of 2013! I hope you're having a wonderfull New Years Eve with your loved ones and an even better New Years!
