Self-Adjusting Flawless Coverage, Anti-Aging, Brightening SPF 30 PA+++
I’ve got a sample of Dr. Brandt’s Flexitone BB Cream some time ago with one of my online orders. And decided to give it a try last week…
When I opened it I was disappointed to see how dark it was and was sure that it wouldn’t suit me; but decided to try it anyway. I was actually very surprised to see that several minutes later it adapted to my skintone and left me with an even, flawless and glowing complexion. The thing is that I did not read that it was a “Self-Adjusting ” product. That is why I did not expect that to happen.

Givenchy are bringing out two new products for complexion for this Fall. An with all the BB/CC theme going on, it’s nice to see a “classic” foundation in a beautiful packaging.
The new products are Teint Couture Long-Wearing Fluid Foundation and Long-Wearing Compact. The face of the line is a gorgeous Mariacarla Boscono.
Teint Couture Long-Wearing Fluid Foundation £32 / €44.50
“An exceptional combination of long-wearing performance, a comfortable texture and a perfectly transparent result.” Nicolas Degennes, Artistic Director Givenchy.
What is promised?
- Active ingredients with a strong affinity for the skin’s surface provide “magnetic” adherence, becoming one with the contours of the face while remaining supple. Made-to-measure coverage and an ultra-light texture for long-lasting hold.
- Soft-focus agents visually refine the skin’s texture and conceal imperfections.
- A hydro-magnetic complex moisturises and rebalances the skin cells day after day, helping them withstand everyday stress factors. And, for added protection, an SPF20 sunscreen.
I was never a fan of soaps in the past, as they left my skin dry and tight afterwards. As you know, old habits (or stereotypes, in this case) die hard so I was using gels and creams for body and face for a very long time.
But several years ago I’ve decided to give soaps another chance. And I was definitely surprised to see how things have changed since then. These days there are a lot of gentle, delicate and creamy soaps to choose from. I already wrote about some of my favourite discoveries, such as L’Occitane and Cowshed and today would like to tell you about Clarins Beauty Soap.
According to the brand it’s a “water-based certified organic bar soap for face and body which contains 99% natural ingredients”.

- Fairyland – chrome metal and silver flecked
- Athenians – red-bronzed copper
- Love-in-idleness – dark, stormy blue
I already did a review of the Jo Loves Mango collection, so it’s time to talk about the other fragrances from the line and this time it’s all about Pink Vetiver and Green Orange & Coriander.
These two may be my personal favourites. I am not a huge fan of girly, think uber fruity/floral scents, most of the time, so these are my cup of tea. Also, I think that both would smell amazing on men, at least I’d like a man to smell like that
Green Orange & Coriander
Jo describes it as “soulful and sassy; marriage between green citrus and herb; incredibly comforting yet at the same time it evokes a real sense of passion and warmth”.
I totally agree, although it is citrusy, it is a warm citrus, uplifting and sexy at the same time. Would be a great scent to wear on a coffee date. I love pairing it with high heels and faux leather trousers.
The notes are:
- Top: Bitter Green Orange, Black Pepper
- Heart: Coriander Seed, Coriander Leaf
- Base: Green Oakmoss, Tonka Bean
I have noticed thatRead More
