Clarins One Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser Review

Today I want to tell you about the Clarins One Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser which was the part of this set that I’ve bought for myself as a post-holidays treat.

Since it’s a part of the Clarins’ girls top 5 products, I had high expectations and it did not disappoint.

It is basically a face wash and scrub two-in-one which means that you do your cleansing in only one step, as the name suggests.

I find that it does a great job: removes all traces of makeup and cleanses the skin really well, without drying it out ( I have very dry skin and I could not believe that I did not have that ”tight” feeling afterwards). Although, I usually prefer enzyme peels over scrubs, this one is rather gentle. I’d say it’s spot on, not too “scrubby” but just good enough to exfoliate the skin.

I also like the lovely orange scent, which is a nice touch; this is especially awesome in the

Inside My Makeup Bag: Lip Products

I have a habit of accumulating lip products in my bag… Although it got batter with time, I still have around three – five by the end of the week.

So, I’ve decided to look inside the makeup bag that I carry with me (and it’s only Wednesday) and see what  lip products are there, and here are the results.

This is a very good lip balm, and, I think, I have with me pretty much all the time. It is moisturising without being greasy, exactly what I like in a balm.

April 2013 Beauty Favourites

It’s the end of the month, so it means it’s time  for April beauty favourites! I really love all the products from the previous “favourite posts” and here is the new selection.

Hair

L’Occitane Repairing Shampoo and Conditioner for Dry & Damaged Hair

I’ve been absolutely in love with this duo from L’Occitane, although my hair is not dry or damaged. It’s an absolute pleasure to use, as it  cleanses well, leaves the hair looking nice and smells amazing.

There is not that much left, so I have already ordered some Philip B hair care products, but I will definitely re-purchase these at some point in the future. Read more about them here.

Rimmel Lycra PRO Nail Polish in Blue Vogue

I have been wearing this nail polish for more than a week this month, it is absolutely gorgeous, see the swatch, and also long-lasting.

Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush in 09 Soft Murano

This blush is a great proof that high quality products are not necessarily expensive. Miracle Touch was my most used blusher this month. I have two shades and adore them both. I should probably

Makeup4all 15 Makeup Favourites of 2015

Ok, I am finally doing it!  Writing 2015 yearly favourites that is.  The thing is when I started writing this post I’ve gathered so many products that I’d be going on, and on about them all. This is why here are 15 I loved the most. 15 since it was 2015, yes, I know…

Makeup4all 15 Makeup Favourites of 2015

If I had to choose only 1 product that would probably be Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in 25 Alluring Rose (review and swatches)

Long-time readers know how much I love my blushers. And this year it was all about this one, I’ve barely used anything else.  Creme Puff Blush gives that luminous glow that instantly brightens up the complexion. The formula is incredibly soft and smooth and blends into the skin beautifully. I have several shades but Alluring Rose is the love of my [beauty] love.

The other favourite is still my Trish McEvoy Golden Bronzer (review). As you can see from the photo above, it is very well loved. It warms up the complexion without looking orange or muddy.  I  like the hint of radiance it gives, too.

BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl (review) is still the best glow-and-radiance-in-a-bottle product out there.  I usually mix it with foundation  to make my skin look “healthy”. This formula and shade = perfection.

If I had to pick only one “foundation” of the year – that’d be Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturizer (review and swatches), hands down. It is dry skin’s best friend. Clarins know how to
