There is a bit of an upsetting feeling when a product is supposed to be great and even the girl at the shop tells you is amazing but after using it till is empty you realised that the hype wasn’t real and you basically wasted your money, this is basically happened to me with this facial essence from The Body Shop. I tend to get well with the products from this brand but sometimes they disappointment me. Continue reading “Review: The Body Shop, Drops Of Youth Essence Lotion”
When Beautyblender announced the release of a foundation I was quite surprised as we all know the brand for the magnificent makeup sponges, so I have to admit I was a bit skeptical when Bounce came up, but after tested it for a couple of days in a row I put my hands up now is one of my favourite foundations for several reason not only the performance. Recently another member joined the family and again another lovely surprise: Re-Dew Setting spray, plus the two new Electrical Violet sponges because you never have enough beautyblenders specially if you work with make up.

The anti-ageing treatment enriched with [20+1] plant extracts that uses a hydrolipidic and biomimetic double formula to stimulate the five vital functions: hydration, nutrition, oxygenation, regeneration and protection. This serum was born back in 1985 and as you might know some ingredients are only soluble in water, others only in oil. That’s when the founder of Clarins got the idea of offering the treatment in two separate bottles, for the customer to mix together at the time of use. Double Serum was born.

Sensitive skin is not a type of skin, but a condition, a condition that can affect all skin types.
The symptoms are tightness, itching, tingling, erythema (our face turns red), burning. Did you ever feel that? Or thought “this cream is bad” and you stop using the one you had open because it burns your face? In general it is not the cream’s fault but our skin that is sensitized. What things can damage the microbiome (the protective barrier) of the skin and leave it weak and sensitive? very abrasive products, exfoliate very often, clean our face with very strong soaps, do not use sunscreen. That’s why we suddenly notice that everything burns, bothers us and then we choose not to use anything.
Well weeks ago I tried a clay mask that practically destroyed my skin, I was full of pimples, itchy, burning and actually my skin was in pain, so had to change my regular skin care routine to recover for one more simple but with specific products, that’s when I tried a combination of 3 from Eau Thermale Avène.

May is the skin cancer awareness month and with that comes the well known advice of how to prevent skin cancer, sadly many people skip them thinking that skin cancer rarely happen.
One product that we always have to use and never leave the house without applying it over our skin is the sunscreen protection, and even when some products include SFP 10,20, 25,30, the right one is always 50+, and today I want to share the product I have testing lately. Continue reading “Clarins, Sun Wrinkle Control Cream 50+”
