Another Monthly Recap post so soon? Well, the last one (read here) was two weeks late and I don´t like not sticking to my self-inflicted schedule
Yes, I know I could just have adapted the schedule, but that is not how I do things.
Anyway, September saw me back to work and, I am not going to lie, struggling. The problem with being on holiday is that you are away.
Which is totally the point, I get it, but leaves so much stuff waiting for you once you return, it can be overwhelming.
On top of that being away always gives me time to think, and thinking very often leads to ideas. Ideas are great, but must be followed by actions if you don´t want utter frustration, and that means – more work.
So if you add work-work to blog-work and then stir in some extra-idea-work, 24 hours are actually pretty short.
But enough complaints, let´s get into my blog post topics of the month of September!
Continuing from last month, I reviewed two more of the Peter Thomas Roth face masks, the Cucumber Gel Mask (review), a cooling and hydrating product that I did enjoy throughout summer, but will probably not repurchase and the Rose Stem Cell mask (review) which, despite being very nice, made me go on a full blown rant about exaggerated claims in skincare.
Both are almost empty now, which is a great transition to this video I uploaded last month: My September Empties, again featuring mainly skincare and only a few hair and nail care things.
More skincare videos would have been the „5 hacks for oily skin (that are not skincare)“ which I figured would despite the title fit best into this category as well as „The best face masks for your skin concern„.
Oh, and I managed to tick one review off the „Cult products everyone except me has already tried“-list (no kidding, this is a list I actually keep): The Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel!
And to start off another mini skincare series, I published the first of three reviews regarding the Caudalie Vinopure Set: The Caudalie Vinopure Clear Skin Purifying Toner.
Makeupwise things were a little slower on the blog last month, with the only proper thing to share being the „Foundation Review The Ordinary Coverage Foundation„. It was one of my worst performing videos on You Tube in a long time, which might be a hint to stick to skincare. Or finally get my butt in shape and learn about SEO!
Not technically on my blog, but with my collaboration Beauty Drama Queen published „Hello Autumn„, featuring a few of the products I just know I will reach for in the coming season. The nail polish mentioned is actually on my hands right now, which means that makeupwise autumn has started at Casa Loca.
While I totally am a morning person, contrary to common believe I don´t think you have to be one to be successful, and I shared my reasons why in „Why you don’t have to be a morning person to be successful„.
You should however take a few minutes and think about your beauty routine in case of a nuclear incident. Don´t believe me? Read „Things you probably never thought about in your beauty products“ to find out why.
And lastly some food for thought: Antiaging, both the word itself and the message it sends – do you think we should stop using it? I shared my thoughts in „Anti-aging – More than just a word?“
How was your September? Busy Busy as well?
