Back for Beauty Seconds with Clinique, Kneipp and Paula’s Choice

You know something is truly good when you just can’t resist going back for more. More pizza! More chocolate! More bubbly! And going back for seconds is even more impressive when it comes to beauty, especially if you’re a beauty blogger. With an endless supply of brands to explore and tons of products to choose from it rrreally means something when a beauty blogger decides to go back to a trusted favorite just because it’s SO good. Today I’m sharing some of my latest beauty seconds including Clinique, Kneipp and Paula’s Choice. Take a look!

Clinique Sweet Rose Sweet Pots Sugar Scrub & Lip Balm + Pep-Start Eye Cream

Review (Clinique Candied Cassis Sweet Pots Sugar Scrub & Lip Balm)

✿ Clinique Candied Cassis Sweet Pot ✿

When Clinique launched their Sweet Pots (29 CHF) collection back in January my search for the perfect lip balm finally ended. I swear, you guys, this lip balm is the mother of all lip balms for me, it is suh-hoooooo good! And I am VERY picky when it comes to lip treatments. After finishing my first Candied Cassis duo last month I am now scrubbing and balming my way through a second one and I also got two of the Sweet Rose Sweet Pots. Gotta hoard those babies!

And the same goes for the Clinique Pep-Start Eye Cream (36 CHF). After writing a glowing review about it back in March and then finishing my first tube mid last month I immediately opened a new one. I personally feel that there aren’t many rave-worthy eye creams out there – a lot of them are good but not great – so until something even better comes along the Clinique Pep-Start Eye Cream will remain a staple in my routine.

Kneipp Body Mousse Morning Kiss + Patchouli

Review (Kneipp Body Mousse Morning Kiss + Patchouli)

Kneipp only released these new Body Mousses (9.99 EUR) last month and these are my first two bottles, so technically speaking they aren’t really beauty seconds. But since they’re the body care successor of the super duper awesome Kneipp Shower Foam and are very similar to the Vaseline Spray & Go Body Moisturizer that I like so much I decided to include them anyway

Review (Kneipp Body Mousse Morning Kiss + Patchouli) (2)

Both the Morning Kiss and Patchouli version have a luxurious yet light airy foam texture that is fast-absorbing and nicely hydrating, with the first being delicately orange blossom-scented and the latter smelling very earthy and relaxing.

Paula’s Choice Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum + Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Lotion

Review (Paula’s Choice Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum + Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Lotion)

I already professed my love for Paula’s Choice during my holiday Q&A when I asked about your favorite make-up and skincare brands, so you know I’m a big fan. The Paula’s Choice Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant Serum (36.90 EUR) and Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Lotion (31.90 EUR) are two of my favorite products from the brand. And they’re actually not beauty seconds or even beauty thirds: I’ve repurchased both products so many times now that I’ve lost count.

Review (Paula’s Choice Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum + Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Lotion) (2)

The serum is the perfect night-time treatment for my oily yet severely dehydrated skin and the 2% BHA lotion has completely changed my views on exfoliation as it makes my skin noticeably smoother and clearer without being the least bit irritating. Like I said: big fan!
