Christmas Gift Guide: Skincare Sets

When it comes to skincare and body care, there are a lot of brands that I like, but there are four that I have been using religiously and loving for many years now, and I am talking about Clarins, ElemisREN and Aromatherapy Associates.

It was hard to pick only one set from each but I’ve managed. Here are two sets for face and two for body.

  • HydraQuench Cream Normal to dry skin 50 ml
  • HydraQuench Intensive Serum Bi-Phase 15 ml
  • HydraQuench Cream-Mask 15 ml

REN is another brand that I love buying from during the holidays to save some money.

The Ultimate Spring Guide: Beauty

Spring is the start of  the new season, and it is the time when we all want changes. I thought I’d share a little list of things that inspire me these days. Hope you enjoy.

Here is part one, my beauty list:

1. Start Wearing Bright Lipstick!

Bright lipstick Guerlain and fuchsia IllamasquaMy friend is wearing Illamasqua Atomic. And myself – Guerlain KissKiss in 325 Rouge Kiss.

I wrote a post about makeup during a hard time here. As, I’ve already said – it won’t make whatever you are going through go away, but it does make a positive impact.  Every little thing helps.

2.  Get That Glow.

I actually did a very detailed post on how to fake achieve glowing  and radiant complexion with makeup. And you can all read about it here and here.

3. Invest in that “Radiance” Skincare.

Makeup is amazing! But it all starts with good skin. After winter it may look dull, grey and tired, this is why good quality serums and oils are a must-have. Below you can see two great options, and I plan on

This time it is all things body, hair and feet & hands. Here we go.

Best Beauty Products of 2014 Body. Hands. FeetBody

Garnier Oil Beauty Oil-Infused Nourishing Scrub  (review)

This is such an amazing scrub for  dry skin, it is not harsh, not drying, leaves the skin smooth and ready for the moisturizer. Add a nice scent and affordable price – and you get a perfect product!

Here is finally a third part of my 2014 favourites: you can see part one here and part two here. This time it is all about skincare… Best Beauty Products of 2014 Skincare Elemis Ren FOM Clarins Algenist Jo Malone


Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm (Review) This was definitely my favourite cleanser of the year, it smells divine, feels gentle on the skin and leaves it smooth and plumped. Having a massage with it is so relaxing and pampering, a great way to finish off a busy day and have some “me” time.

One-Step Facial Cleanser with Orange Extract (review)

When I am in a rush, and don’t have time for a “proper” cleanse, which is usually in the mornings, – this is the product I reach for. I find that it works great for my dry and sensitive skin, removes the makeup and does leave the skin feeling amazing, as if I did the whole cleanse-tone routine. Did I mention the lovely scent?

I know that a lot of readers are wondering what to get their husbands/boyfriends (or even brothers/fathers/male friends) for Christmas.

This is why I have asked “men from my life” what they would like to get – to share with you some ideas. I just hope that now they won’t think that I am getting all those things for them… 😉

I have promised not to give away their names, so here are just the quotes and age group. Most of my male friends are 30-35 but I have asked several younger and several older men,  for the variety.
