Review: Antipodes, Manuka Honey Skin Care Collection

My skincare routine has been quite exciting lately since I have included three products from the New Zealander brand Antipodes, not only for the ingredients, also many of their products are vegetarian (some even vegan), it’s a natural sustainable brand with a deep connection with natural ingredients and ecological awareness proof of that is that all their packaging is recyclable. Continue reading “Review: Antipodes, Manuka Honey Skin Care Collection”

Perfume Review: Coco Mademoiselle L’Eau Privée by Chanel

If we have to talk about perfumes that are very popular but still I don’t like that it would be Coco Mademoiselle, a mega bomb of patchouli than even for my nose is too much and I think this perfume is quite popular because is Chanel and is far more modern than No 5 to use, but still Coco Mademoiselle came out about two years later than J’adore another perfume I can’t stand but is still popular and have those notes that were popular back then so every time I smell them I can’t help to think of a woman on her 40s, 50s. Probably another reason why I use even having a bottle is because..everybody wears it, just like Black Opium or La Vie est Belle is a perfume that would make you easily forgettable because so many girls have made it their signature fragrance.

Review: Thalgo, Prodige des Océans Le Masque

When it comes to give a treat to my skin I would not doubt twice to mention face masks, different types, different applications, different purposes, but there is one I actually use twice a week and are the leave on all night ones as an extra to hydrate and moisture my face.

Review: Bioderma, Photoderm MAX Aquafluide SPF 50+

Sometimes finding a good SPF for a combination/Oily skin could be tricky, most of them would be too greasy, the would start to melt once you go underneath the sun, if it’s dry touch then the finish is too matte and non natural at all, so today I want to share one that I have been using and already finish: Photoderm MAX Aquafluide SPF 50+ by Bioderma.

Perfume Review: Molecule 01 and Escentric 01 by Escentric Molecules

Niche perfumery has increased in popularity in the last couple of years thanks to some niche houses that opened up the way for more people to discover them and enjoy alternatives to the massive consume market. One of those brands was clearly Escentric Molecules with the 01. Molecule 01 and Escentric 01 were very popular back in the day, anyone following British beauty youtubers probably remember the hype back then. Over hyped/promoted products tend to put me off to try them out, but then this year I got closer to the brand with the release of Molecule 05 and Escentric 05 and specialised perfume writers and friends who tried it suggested me to review the 01 and 02 range because “they were amazing” So here we are.

Review: IT Cosmetics, Confidence in a Cleanser

Every time I used to talk about IT Cosmetics was mostly about their make up range but never really tried their skincare products that the vast majority have been released in the last two years so they are still a bit new plus the latest launches. Considering that IT cosmetics is a brand quite focused on very sensitive skin, eczema and rosacea mainly I decided to give it a try, I don’t suffer from a very severe redness but is there specially when I use harsh products or the weather makes my skin getting quite sensitive, I normally have combination type but lately it has been quite dry.

Review: Kiehl’s, Daily Refining Milk-Peel Toner

IMG-20200728-WA0010

I love when new type of products show up in the market with new formulas, textures… specially if we are talking about toners, some people consider them unnecessary mostly because they have an inaccurate concept about what a toner does or they tend to think about the first ones in the market that were pure alcohol with fragrance, I remember them when I was a teenager with oily skin and acne and how much damage they caused.

Review: Bioderma Photoderm MAX Spray SPF 50+

IMG-20200705-WA0002

We will keep talking about SPF as this is not only a matter of beauty but also about health,  on the face, the body, we tend to use separate products as the ones for the body tend to be far more greasy and thicker and I have to admit I’m not the best with the body ones as I hate the heavy greasy feeling after, and having to carry two different SPF is a bit of hassle till I found an option by Bioderma, is the Photoderm MAX Spray SPF 50+ so I wanted to share it here.

Depending of your personality, your mood, the weather, the event…perfumes play a good part of raising your vibration, your confidence, your sense of sensuality… Everytime I feel down like the is no much reasons to feel positive I tend to spray some sort of fresh, energetic perfume on me and light an scented candle to remember that there is much out there to be grateful and glad for.

Have you ever had a dream and got stuck in your mind the next morning? Well how about finding out what your unconscious mind is trying to tell you? Never been a big fan of Freud actually I don’t agree with him on many things but when it comes to dreams I do tend to to believe the mind is trying to speak up about the unsolved things we have in our lives and we aren’t aware of how subconsciously they might be affecting ourselves.

Review: AA Skincare, Frankincense & Rose Face Toner

IMG_20200118_193339

Toners could be one of the biggest allies on your skincare or one of your worst enemies depending on their formulation, I’m also against of paying huge amounts of money for a product that is supposed to be simple and not with a bunch of ingredients that should be supplied by serums, moisturisers etc. Continue reading “Review: AA Skincare, Frankincense & Rose Face Toner”

Perfume Review: Neon Rose by Floral Street

IMG-20200508-WA0001

Summer is around the corner and definitely we started to feel those sunny and sometimes quite warm days, so what that basically means? warm skin makes any perfume become far more intense, and yes I have always been a powerful intense fragrance lover, florals and fresh clean scents are not my cup of tea mostly because I don’t tend to suit my personality and  most important they never last on my skin.
