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.

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”
In 2006, Escentric Molecules launched Molecule 01, a single aroma-molecule in a bottle. The molecule was Iso E Super, an abstract synthetic in a lab at IFF. Now Molecule 01 gets a plus one.

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.

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. Continue reading “Review: Institut Esthederm, Intensive Hyaluronic Skincare Routine”
