Windle & Moodie, Ultra Nourishing Collection Review

windle

Anyone who has very damaged hair knows how hard it is to bring it back to life, one of the most important factors is knowing how to choose quality and free products such as parabens and silicones that give a false appearance of “healthy” when the reality is very different, the problem that has even happened to me is that when I use products free of these ingredients my hair is obviously shown as it is: dry, damaged, full of frizz, etc. I preferred to sacrifice myself and continue using harmful products just to tame my hair. I decided a couple of months ago that I wanted to have long hair again because I do not tolerate the same haircut that everyone now wears, so I decided to make it grow but it was healthy when the Ultra Nourishing line from Windle & Moodie was great help.

MAC, Studio Waterweight Foundation

IMG_0780

It has been a while since the last time I used a MAC foundation and normally would be the classics from the brand so when I saw this I noticed I have never tried it before and the name really caught my attention, I’m talking about the Waterweight SPF 30 Foundation. I said many times down here I do have normally oily skin except on winter that could actually turn into dry, another thing I always say is that I hate cakey make up and how I see on the street and even beauty consultants wear an overdose of high coverage foundation, no, no, no. Many of you would say “Elle I want full coverage because I have bad skin, I have acne, rosacea or any other issue” great you can get a full coverage but without making so obvious to others eyes, plus there is nothing more annoying of that heavy foundation sensation on your face, well here we have one solution.

Less is more, from the “No Make up Make up” to the Glass Skin many women realise that looking natural and fresh could be far nicer than the diva look, because is not nice when you can notice the excess of foundation from meters away, and far more important a natural makeup would make you look far younger and would help also a lot to keep your skin younger but not all foundations do that that’s why today I want to share the one I have been loving lately and is the Perfecting Powder Cream by Valmont.

Murad, Retinol Youth Renewal Collection

murad

Retinol has been used as an ingredient in cosmetics for approximately 40 years. First as a treatment against acne, to later extend its use in the prevention and treatment of wrinkles and age spots, once proven effective as a skin renewal.

How does it act? Penetrating the deep layers of the skin, thanks to its light molecular weight, and stimulating collagen and elastin. What makes it unbeatable is that it also improves the appearance of the outer layer of the skin. It benefits the cell renewal process, so dead skin goes fast and new, brighter skin layers appear, it also regulates the keratinization process to soften the complexion.

Shiseido: Synchro Skin Illuminator

This Illuminator or highlighter is part of the Synchro Skin from Shiseido, I have been using it practically everyday as I only use few drops for different part of my face, that’s why this 40 ml bottle is very long lasting. The Synchro Skin Illuminator is a creamy highlither with a medium pigmentation, ideal to get a natural and sophisticated glow to a classy makeup look. The creamy formula is ideal to apply with fingers and they are easier to blend in the right area we want to glow, I also found it a bit more long lasting than powders specially for dry skin or even the oily ones during the cold months.
