During the past weeks I have been trying out the Obagi Daily Hydro Drops Serum , a luxury dermatological brand that you can easily find at Skin Station an online store that allows you to browse and buy luxury skincare products at the most competitive prices and getting the professional help to choose the right products depending of your skin type and needs, in my case I was suggested to try out this Obagi serum that is special for normal, combination and oily skin, I tend to have issues with hormonal acne but t the same time I have dry patches and I know my skin is dehydrated so needed some extra help in that sense.

If we talk about avant-garde perfumery, without a doubt Escentric Molecules is one of the brands that tops the list, Molecule 01 basically became a cult fragrance. But Geza Schoen did’t stop there, he developed other lines of fragrances that didn’t have much publicity and became kind of a secret for people who are more deeply into the world of perfumery, until today that we are going to know more about the Schoen’s work.
The body butters from The Body Shop are one of my absolute favourites, the texture, the fragrance, Vegan and now they renovated the line creating a better eco friendly packaging and Fair Trade ingredients from around the world.
One of the latest products released by Omorovicza is this Midnight Renewal as the names suggest this is a night-time serum designed to instantly boost the complexion and restore skin’s youthful vitality while we sleep.
If we talk about designers who are doing playing the beauty game quite hard we have to mention Tom Ford, his perfumes became quite popular and just like other luxury brands like Jo Malone, Aerin, etc under the wing of Estee Lauder is has a high price tag, the question is..is really worth it or is just a brand hype? I have tried quite a few of the fragrances from this house and yes some of them are not worth the money at all and others are really good and that’s the case of Black Orchid.

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.
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

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.
