Perfume Review: Black Orchid by Tom Ford

If we talk about designers who are doing playing the beauty game quite hard we have to mention Tom Ford, his perfumes became quite popular and just like other luxury brands like Jo Malone, Aerin, etc under the wing of Estee Lauder is has a high price tag, the question is..is really worth it or is just a brand hype? I have tried quite a few of the fragrances from this house and yes some of them are not worth the money at all and others are really good and that’s the case of Black Orchid.

Review: Sculpted By Aimee, Cream Luxe Collection

When it comes to make up I always found creamy texture far easier to work with than powders probably because I blending with my fingers I manage to build up everything faster and just like I want it, so this time I come with three new in from Sculpted by Aimee the successful brand from the Irish make up artist Aimee Connolly, I tried a couple of her products before and they are amazing, well the brand has this new Cream Luxe Collection which are basically are individual creamy blush, highlighter and bronzer, a minimalist luxe collection for a quickly make up look without so many products.

Review: Olverum, Body Polish

Exfoliating the body is probably one of the most satisfying things to do in the shower, obviously don’t do it everyday because the skin needs its microbiome but once or twice a week is more than enough, I tend to quite careful with the type of body polishes I use because I don’t want to damage my skin by using something too aggressive, this why today I come with a wonderful recommendation that is not only friendly with our bodies but also with the environment.

Continue reading “Review: Olverum, Pure Radiance Facial Oil”

Perfume Review: Toy 2 Bubble Gum by Moschino

The spring comes with some new releases in perfumery and certainly one of the most cheerful not only with the bottle design but also interesting notes is Toy 2 Bubble Gum by Moschino. Not long ago I posted about Toy 2 and how much I loved the fragrance, this new flanker as the name says includes bubble gum on it so I couldn’t be more excited about it. Continue reading “Perfume Review: Toy 2 Bubble Gum by Moschino”

Review: Kiehl’s, Calendula Petal-Infused Calming Mask

When it comes to skincare routine I exfoliate my face twice a week, so after that I keep going with a serum and moisturiser although I tend to replace the moisturiser with a overnight mask as I consider them to nourish far better specially after an exfoliation, so far my favourites are the ones from Kiehl’s, this time I tried out the Calendula Petal-Infused Calming Mask. Continue reading “Review: Kiehl’s, Calendula Petal-Infused Calming Mask”

Perfume Review: Mon Guerlain Sparkling Bouquet by Guerlain

New release from the Mon Guerlain family, thinking already in the summer, I was curious to see if they improved the quality or not, as I like the original Mon Guerlain but is not really a favourite of mine, is a very generic perfume and I would much prefer other options from the brand hence why I don’t have it in my collection. I didn’t like any of the flankers in fact I have two bottles of two of them and I’m seriously thinking to sell them as I never reach out for them. Continue reading “Perfume Review: Mon Guerlain Sparkling Bouquet by Guerlain”

Review: Kiehl’s, Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil Herbal Concentrate

On another adventure to keep discovering Kiehl’s products I have been trying out the Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil Herbal concentrate, I have previously posted about the cleanser from this range that was a game changer when it comes to hormonal acne. Few days ago I had a bad break out after testing out the new Givenchy Prisme Libre foundation, I didn’t even remember the last time a foundation ended up being so nasty to my skin and luckily during those days this bad boy from Kiehl’s arrived so I had the perfect excuse to testing it out. Continue reading “Review: Kiehl’s, Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil Herbal Concentrate”

Perfume Review: Decadence by Marc Jacobs

When it comes to Marc Jacobs fragrances I honestly never understood the hype about the daisy perfumes, the are so generic and pretty poor performance I guess the bottle design do all the marketing but I hardly ever hear anyone mentioning the Decadence line, the first one came out in 2015 and even still today I keep finding so unique compared to many other options in the market. Continue reading “Perfume Review: Decadence by Marc Jacobs”

Lone Design Club: Discovering Independent Conscious Brands

When it comes to fast fashion, consumerism out of control is hard to develop a conscious shopping habits, we are invaded by massive brands with many times lack of ethics from the materials and working force they use, environmental impact, animal testing, and many other things that sometimes we ignore. In the other hand I also feel like the exclusivity, the unique design of certain products is something we are missing. Continue reading “Lone Design Club: Discovering Independent Conscious Brands”

Sunday Pampering with Thalgo Indoceane Collection

For a couple of weeks this has been my Sunday pampering routine, I have always dedicate time for myself just before starting another week, a way to recharge energies and feel good with myself and that includes obviously my body.

Review: Antipodes, Culture Probiotic Night Recovery Water Cream

We probably heard more about “probiotics” in food and of course the benefits of a healthy diet but lately in the beauty world we started to hear about them as part of skincare products. To make it simple the skin is a microbiome where you have all kind of bacteria good and bad that your body needs to keeps the balance, the probiotics are live bacteria that support the healthy bacteria in your body and as we age there are changes on the skin pH and microbiome so this is when helping out with skincare products with probiotics might be a good idea, so today I want to introduce one option that is 100% natural and Vegan.  Continue reading “Review: Antipodes, Culture Probiotic Night Recovery Water Cream”

Review: The Body Shop, CBD Range

CBD is an acronym for cannabidiol. It is one of many compounds called cannabinoids that are extracted from the cannabis sativa plant, also known as hemp, for their many different benefits. Even though hemp seed oil and CBD come from the same plant, they do not have the same benefits because they’re not extracted the same way. Continue reading “Review: The Body Shop, CBD Range”

Perfume Review: Basilico and Fellini by Vilhelm Parfumerie

I was waiting for the spring to properly talk about a perfume that I have tried and loved and is mostly for the warm weather season, I’m talking about Basilico & Fellini  from Vilhelm Parfumerie. A green fresh unisex fragrance probably one of the best I have tried in a while, specially since there are not purely green releases lately.

Review: Stila Spring 2021 Collection

When it comes to spring/summer season I tend to switch my make up routine to something lighter, fresher and natural, heavy foundation, extreme highlighter and blush with a huge eye make up look always have been a huge no from me as I like a more sophisticated and elegant look, also because in the warm weather any heavy make up would practically start to melt giving us the urgency to remove it all. Stila did think about this so they introduced a simple but effective make up collection. Continue reading “Review: Stila Spring 2021 Collection”

Travelling From Home: Odawara Castle Online Ninja Experience

I was really looking forward to write about travelling again such a complicated topic with everything going on around the world with covid-19. At the moment any travelling for tourism and business to Japan is banned and with everything changing is hard to know when we will be able to visit such a lovely country, although I assisted to the Tokyo online expo and I kept in contact with many of prefectures tourism boards to start planning the content once the borders get open again. Till that some of them are offering those travel experiences online, one of the is the Odawara Castle. Continue reading “Travelling From Home: Odawara Castle Online Ninja Experience”

Perfume Review: Girl Of Now by Elie Saab

A perfume that captures the spirit of the “Now generation” spontaneous, playful and carefree this is what the Girl Of Now Perfume line is all about. While “Le Parfum” Collection has as major inspiration the famous bridal collections from Elie Saab, Girl of Now clearly has far more influence from the prêt à porter one those petals in the bottle design are quite similar to the flowers we normally see in the jackets from the brand. This is an intense perfume as clearly describes an intense girl who lives her live to the fullest hence why she needs a perfume that would match her feelings. Continue reading “Perfume Review: Girl Of Now by Elie Saab”

Review: Institut Esthederm, Intensive Hyaluronic Skincare Routine

During the last couple of years we started to hear about Hyaluronic Acid applied to skincare products but many times there is a misconception that HA is reserved for dry skin, Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a sugar found naturally in our skin that holds water and helps keep it hydrated and plump. The HA within our bodies holds a thousand times its weight in water to not only retain all that moisture in our skin and joints, but also prevent all that moisture from evaporating into the air, now just like elastin and collagen this one also decrease in production as we get older so here is when we have to do our part to estimulate the production, internally as you can imagine our diet plays a vital role, no rocking science vegetables and fruits are in the top of the list, externally we can help our skin with skincare products like serums, creams, masks that keep the skin moisturised, helping to reduce the Transepidermal water loss.
