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 most of you are still burning your Christmas candles but the Spring ones area already coming out our way!
Here are two that are worth your attention, they are from the brands that are on top of their game – Jo Malone and Diptyque.
Jo Malone My Wanderlust – Cardamom & Moroccan Rose Home Candle
“The foothills of the Atlas mountains. Moroccan roses unfurl with their sumptuous honeyed spice. Glowing, aromatic cardamom. Freshened by the brightness of ginger. Chamomile, natural and earthy, accentuates voluptuous floral facets. Expansive, bright and opulent.”
This sounds dreamy. In fact,Read More
I am still in love with the Jo Malone’s mini cologne set I’ve got myself as a Christmas present several years ago, which is why I always recommend getting them, as a present for yourself or a special friend.
This year the brand actually brought out two gorgeous looking collections, one with colognes, and the other one with colognes intense. It is as good as it gets, really.
Jo Malone Cologne Collection, £68/$110
- Zesty Lime Basil and Mandarin: fresh limes and zesty mandarin undercut by peppery basil and aromatic white thyme.
- Blackberry and Bay: deep, tart blackberry juice, just-gathered bay and brambly woods.
- Amber and Lavender: a subtle, spicy warm scent of petit grain, French lavender and amber.
- Peony and Blush Suede: a charming mix of peonies, red apple, jasmine, rose and gillyflower mingled with sensual blush suede.
- Wood Sage and Sea Salt: woody earthiness mixed with sage the sea.
Wood Sage and Sea Slat is the only cologne that I still don’t have, Peony and Blush Suede I’ve got for my Mum, and other threeRead More
I am getting ready for a holiday, and here is the list of the things, beauty related, that I did. I thought I’d share with you, too. And, hopefully, some of you will find it helpful.
1. Waxing appointment.
This is crucial. The last thing that you want on your holiday is to think about the unwanted hair.
Same for the manicure. I don’t want to worry about my nails not looking nice, plus I won’t have to take all the extra nail care products. More space for shopping!
3. Tint eye brows and lashes. Extensions.
If you are a person that just can’t be without makeup, even on the beach, I did a post just for you. But if you, likeRead More
It’s time for May beauty favourites! It was very hard to narrow things down but I’ve managed to, almost.
This month I was away for two weeks (one week at one place, and then another one – different one), but I always had Elemis Skin Brush (review) with me, and I’ve used it religiously. I personally use it on the dry body, brushing towards the heart. The results are amazing, but you can read all the dets in my review linked above. I have two Elemis brushes, because I just had to! And I would definitely recommend you picking one up.
I did take a picture of only ten products on purpose, so that I don’t go on and on in this post. But I just have to mention this Rouge Bunny Rouge brush, it’s my staple now.
