It’s that time of year! I’ve separated my favourite products of 2014 into three categories: Skincare, Base, Eyes & Lips. Last year’s fave list was a little bit more detailed (see here), but I just didn’t feel like doing it the same way this time around. Still, these products represent the year that was in makeup/skincare terms and I kind of love each and every one of them with a love that is disproportionate to what any inanimate object should receive. Kicking it off with SKINCARE because 2014 was all about creating a flawless base which, of course, always begins with good skin. I finally got the hang of dealing with my combo-oily skin and although I still had some breakouts, I was able to manage them without aggravating the situation or flying into a panic.
Bioderma Sensibio H2O. This has been a part of my skincare routine for a few years now, but it deserves a special mention because Bioderma only recently became available locally. I use this micellar water to remove my eye makeup every time I have eye makeup on and it’s the only product that does not irritate that area of my face.
Smith’s Rosebud Salve (review). This little tin has saved my butt more than once in 2014.
