2017 Favourites (Skin, Hair, Nails)

Here is a part two of my 2017 favourites. I will mention some of my favourite products for face, body, hair and nails. You can see the first part about my makeup favourites here.

2017 Favourites (Skin, Hair, Nails)

Ombia Eye Make-Up Remover
My absolute favourite eye makeup remover. I don't have problems with removing any mascara unless it's really a good waterproof one. It does leave a slight film, but it doesn't bother me because I always clean my face afterwards with another cleanser. It's also very affordable, around 2,5€ for this big bottle that you can see on the picture.

Balea Erfrischendes Waschgel
This one has been my favourite for years, but I still wanted to put it in this post, because it's probably the only products that I have used almost every single day in 2017. Even when I go on vacations, I take sample sizes with me. It is super cheap, around 1,50€ and it lasts for a while. I use it as a second cleanser, to remove the eye makeup remover and to cleanse my face completely.

Malinca Clay Mask
Last year I tried two products from Malinca and they both impressed me, so I wasn't sure which one to put in my favourites. Raspberry body peeling smells heavenly, but the clay mask I have been using ever since I got it. I use it once a week. My skin feels clean after, it looks brighter and healthier. I have a whole review here.

4 Kids and Us Rejuvenating Day Cream
Melvita Nectar de Miels Ultra Nourishing Comforting Balm
I know I talked about these a lot, but I had to put them in my yearly favourites because I have really been loving them in 2017. It seems like I always just repeat myself so you can see a review of the 4 Kids and Us one here and the Melvita's here.

2017 Favourites (Skin, Hair, Nails)

Melvita L'Or Bio Extraordinary Oil
I had to put one oil in this post and since I think that Melvita's was the only new one in 2017, I chose this one. I already talked about it here. I love the luxurious glass packaging, its design is stunning, the oil feels lightweight and nourishing. I use it a lot, but it seems like it will last for a very long time.

Le Couvent des Minimes Relaxing Pillow Mist
I got this mini product at BBMU at Le Couvent des Minimes stand. The scent wasn't my favourite at first, but I started to love it. Even though I am very tired in the evening, I have a hard time falling asleep, so this helps to calm me down and to sleep better. As you can see, I use it very sparingly, the 100ml packaging costs around 18€, but I am considering buying it, once this mini version is empty.

2017 Favourites (Skin, Hair, Nails)

Bilou Cremiger Duschschaum Vanilla Cake Pop and Pflegender Cremeschaum Tasty Donut
Balea Duschschaum Sweet Cake and Handschaum Cake Pop
These all have been one of my favourites in the last year just because they are fun to use. I wanted to write the whole comparison to compare the packaging and the products, but I realised I don't have so much to compare. Balea's are supposedly a dupe for Bilou and I find them just as good. One thing that I did notice by the shower foams is, that Bilou's is much airier and disappears quickly, on the other side I prefer the Balea's one just because it's more of a thicker foam. It's just the opposite with the body/hand creams, I much prefer the Bilou one. In terms of scents, Vanilla Cake Pop is a pretty basic and artificial vanilla scent, Sweet Cake actually smells like it says, like a sweet dessert. Tasty Donut smells like Haribo Soft-Bärchen (those yellow and pink ones) and Cake Pop is not my favourite, the scent is quite artificial. The hand creams sink into the skin very quickly, they are not particularly nourishing, but the scent lasts for a while by both of them. I'm not sure if Bilou is worth those few € more, maybe just because they have more unique scents. I like the hand cream, maybe I will repurchase more, but the shower foam I would rather buy Balea's and save a couple of euros.

2017 Favourites (Skin, Hair, Nails)

Balea Rasiergel Pink Grapefruit
I have heard good things about Balea's showing foams, but until last summer, I never gave attention to them. I actually bought it, because DM had a separate stand for all the new summer products and the tropical packaging looked cute. I really like the foam, it's nice to shave with. But my favourite thing is the scent, it's nothing like that typical and strong shaving cream scent, so my bathroom doesn't smell bad all day.

2017 Favourites (Skin, Hair, Nails)

Sun Dance Lip Balm
This has been my favourite lip balm for more than a year now. I love that it's not waxy and slippery. It makes my lips nice and soft. It's perfect for under a lipstick, especially the matte liquid lipsticks. 

The Body Shop Frosted Plum Body Butter
Even though I just made a review of this one and I only use it for about a month and a half now (I use it very sparingly), it is my favourite body butter ever. In terms of nourishing, it can't even compare it to any others I have tried. It's thick, but still easy to spread and really nourishing. Plus it smells amazing.

2017 Favourites (Skin, Hair, Nails)

Oriflame Tender Care Protecting Balm Organic Honey and The One Moisture Gel
Besides good hand creams, these two have been my saviours when my cuticles got super dry. I prefer the little Tender Care pot because it smells amazing, it's creamy and I feel it nourishes my cuticles fine, but Moisture Gel is just so easy to use. I just paint my cuticles and it's done in no time. In terms of nourishing they are both pretty close, they are both great.

2017 Favourites (Skin, Hair, Nails)

L'Oreal Elseve Extraordinary Oil Nourishing Shampoo
The first half of the year this shampoo was always in my shower. I like that it doesn't dry out my hair, it gives them a bit of moisture and my hair isn't as freezy as by any other ones.

Balea Schöngeits Geheimnisse Shampoo and Spülung
Ever since I bought this, my L'Oreal one has been in my cupboard. I wouldn't say this shampoo is better, but it gets pretty close. I didn't think I would love the shampoo and the conditioner as much as I do. They nourish my hair, my hair feels soft after washing, even though if I don't put any oil in it. I will definitely repurchase, at least the conditioner. There is some sort of balsam in this blue collection that I couldn't find when I bought these two, but recently I saw they have it, so maybe I will buy that one too and see if it's any good. Review here.

2017 Favourites (Skin, Hair, Nails)

Avon Advance Techniques 360 Nourishments Morrocan Argan Oil Nourishing Hair Serum
I use it almost every time when I wash my hair. I like to use it on my hair, mostly on my ends, when my hair is almost completely dry. Last year I have really started to take care of my hair and it's not as dry as it used to be. I also noticed that with this oil, I don't have so many flyaways. It also smells great.

Olaplex Hair Protector No.3
Olaplax has been extremely popular for quite some time now, but I always just ignored everything about it. I didn't even know there were different types. Some are for salon treatments, but this No.3 is for home use. You wash your hair, put the Olaplex on and leave it for a while, the longer, the better. Just after the first time I have used it, I saw a difference. My hair was sleek and so soft to the touch. I only have a bit left and I'm saving it because it is quite expensive, especially for the amount you get.

Thank you for reading!


  1. Sami sladkorčki! Moram priznati, da niti enega od izdelkov še nisem preizkusila, imam pa že dolgo na wishlisti Melvito. Tudi ta Olaplex me mika, prvič slišim, da so izdelki za uporabo doma. Super!


    1. Ti toplo priporočam vse :D Jaz pred BBMU nisem vedela nič o Olaplexu, razen tega, da je za lase :D Sem pa vesela, da sem ga imela možnost stestirati :)

  2. Popolnoma se strinjam s tabo z izbiro Balea gela, Balea pene, Bilou pene, Balea gela, TBS body butterja in L'Oreal šampona :) Ostalo pa itak še nisem preizkusila razen Avonovega seruma, ki je najboljši med cenejšimi, mi je pa Orofluido še vedno boljši :)

    1. Bi ti priporočala še ostalo :D Sploh Ombia odstranjevalec, boljšega še nisem imela :) Orofluido še nisem preizkusila, je pa na WL :D
