I have to admit that, just like everyone else, I am often heavily influenced by advertising. Hence my love for the intimate washes. As I’ve bought yet another bottle I’ve decided to go on a quest and find out what my close girlfriends think about it, and, even more importantly, my gynecologist.
Interestingly enough, all of my girlfriends said that they do not use a separate product, and never saw the need for it, they usually use the regular shower gel or a soap.
But what did my doctor say? And let me tell you that finding a good gynecologist is crucial, and you have to trust her (could never be him for me personally) 100%.

In fact, here is a list of the ingredients of not the cheapest intimate wash out there. Can you see how
A while ago beauty world was obsessed with Smith and Cult nail polishes, and I was not an exception. So a few months ago I’ve decided to try their mascara, as it looked and sounded promising. And the name is also so cool. Lash Dance? Yes, please!
Just like with the nail varnish, I really loved the design of the mascara, the gold tube and the fronts are really cool.

To be honest, Estee Lauder was never the brand I cared for that much until recently, somehow very few products appealed to me. The break through for me was the collaboration with Victoria Beckham.I’ve been following her for ages now.
And ever since EL appointed Violette to be their Creative Director, everything changed. This is her second collection, and it looks perfect. I also love how well edited it is, there are only a few products but they are absolutely perfect!

Being in my 30’s I am now paying more attention when it comes to regular facials, started getting professional peelings, and I am just a firm believer that you should always take the best care of your skin. While I am personally not getting any kind of injections or liftings (just yet), I think it is important to know what options are out there. Hence today’s feature is in collaboration with Hayley Sloan, medical writer for The Breslow Center.
A facelift is an effective way to keep Father Time at bay, but it isn’t your only option.
If you’re thinking about going under the knife but are concerned about the risks and downtime, have no fear! Advances in the field of plastic surgery have paved the way for several viable alternatives.
Here are six of the most popular and effective facial rejuvenations options that Hollywood celebs go for to stave off the signs of aging.
Botox is the most popular non-invasive cosmetic treatment in the United States. It works by temporarily freezing targeted muscles in the face and neck.
This procedure costs less than surgery, requires very little downtime, and is an excellent option for treating fine lines, brow wrinkles, crow’s feet, and forehead creases. Results can be seen in as little as seven days, though ongoing injections are recommended.

Dermal fillers work by adding volume to areas of the face. This helps to reduce the
