I have started using eye creams on a regular basis pretty early, and I believe that a good eye cream can make a difference. And Elemental Herbology Eye Elixir is a good one. In fact, possibly the best eye cream I’ve used. I am actually a huge fan of the brand, in general.
Why do I like it so much?
The main reason is that it is rich and moisturising without feeling heavy or greasy. I have very dry skin, and light-weigh creams don’t do that much for me. Plus, not being 20 anymore, I want to take a good care of my under eye area and prevent the early signs of ageing.
And I find that
There is no such thing as too many lip balms, and today I want to tell you about my current favourite which I have been using for several months, and even included in August favourites. And it is Elemental Herbology Nutritive Lip Complex.
To be honest, it took me some time to get used to this lip balm, as it has quite a strong herbal smell (and taste) but after I’ve got over this fact, I’ve got hooked.
I find that, unlike many other lip balms, this “lip complex” really works. Now, I haven’t tried it on extremely chapped or sore lips but mine are often dry and in need of extra nourishment and moisture. And this
I adore all of my cleansing balms (here are only some) but sometimes I just want to use an effective cleanser which takes less time, usually that is in the mornings. Recently I’ve posted about a REN cleanser that I love and today I want to share about the Elemental Herbology Vital Cleanse Facial Cleanser.
This cleanser is a brand’s best seller, and I can see why. It is gentle and does not irritate the skin but effectively cleanses it, leaving your complexion soft, smooth and radiant with time. The texture is lovely, it is not too runny so is suitable for a gentle massage.
It is a perfect morning cleanser as has that uplifting citrus-y scent to it. I find that
I love writing Christmas gift guides but especially the luxury ones, because when else other than Christmas (and your Birthday, perhaps), you can get away with asking for something high-end? Or, maybe, getting a real treat for your loved ones or even for yourself?
So here are my top picks when it comes to luxury beauty products. And I’ve included only the things which I’ve tried myself and loved, or the things that I think deserve attention.
And, yes, I am aware that it is only October but I know a lot of people who like to plan in advance.
1. Liberty London Advert, £215 from the 16th of October.
This is the ultimate beauty gift, in my opinion. My husband very kindly got it for me last Christmas, and it was one of the best gifts ever. It is worth £600 so £215 is a bargain, if I dare say so.
Alternative: I have posted a lot of other Advent Beauty Calendars on my Facebook page.
2. Goutal Perfumes, £110/£132 for 100 ml from Liberty, Escentual, Harrods.
There is something so special about the Goutal Paris perfumes (the brand was called Annick Goutal previously). The scents are exquisite and sophisticated, the bottles are gorgeous and elegant. If money was not an option I would love to have a whole wardrobe of their beautiful fragrances. But, as for now, I am really enjoying Rose Pompon. Also worth mentioning that the brand recently released alcohol free scents.
3. Foreo Gadgets, £119 for a small one or £169 for a big version from Cult Beauty and Nordstrom.
Brilliant Swedish brand which offers a big variety of facial cleansing and massaging devices, toothbrushes and more. Not only the design is Scandi-chic, the gadgets last forever (here, here, here are mine) but they also are very effective.
4. Omorovicza Skincare Sets Replenish & Restore Collection shown, £95 from Cult Beauty
It’s not a secret that am a big fan of Omorovicza, and, obviously, had to include their sets in the guide. My skin loves it, and that justifies the price tag for me. The set I’ve chosen includes: Miracle Facial Oil (30ml) Rejuvenating Night Cream (15ml), and Omoressence (50ml) .
Alternatives: 111skin, Anne Semonin. Both brands with a hefty price tags which I’ve tried some products from, and loved.
5. Luxury Hair Care: Leonor Greyl, Long Hair Volume Set, €120 from
I love me a luxury hair care products, and Leonor Greyl is as good, as it gets. Everything I’ve tried from the brand was exceptional quality:
