Add this to your arsenal to comfort and enhance – tricking everyone into thinking you get a full eight-hour sleep every single night (one can dream!).
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.
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.

Niche perfume brands are increasing more and more their participation in the market, but very few of them offer sample sizes to try them out, many times we do have to go to specialised perfumes stores that we have to be honest if you are not in London (or any big city) you would find it a bit complicated and in some cases expensive to get there, another factor is how many fragrances we can properly try in one go till our nose lose track of everything. There are so many brands, many olfactory families, notes, sillage, etc that trying to select one is basically a really a hard work
One of my favourite moments of the month is to see what the Lookfantastic beauty box brings inside and June was not disappointing at all! a good selection of products and brands that for sure I would love to try out.

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”
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”
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”
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”

Continue reading “Review: Bioderma, Sebium Skincare Routine For Combination, Oily and Prone to Acne Skin”
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”
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”

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.
