I am really loving Korres body products and buy them regularly. So when I saw that this season the brand offers a Fig collection set – I had to get it. The value is £20.50 but it retails for £15 which makes it a good deal, in my opinion.
So you get:
- Korres Fig Showergel 250ml
- Korres Fig Body Butter 150ml
I haven’t tried Korres shower gels before for some reason, so it was a nice discovery for me. Fig Shower gel is mild but at the same time cleanses really well and does not dry out the skin. The scent is amazing, it stays on the skin for some time but is not overwhelming.
As for the body butter – I have been a fan for a long time already. This butter, which is
I am a huge fan of Clarins’ toners: I have already tried Clarins Extra-Comfort Toning Lotion for Dry and Sensitive, Clarins Toning Lotion with Camomile for Dry and Normal Skin and Clarins Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner.
And I really wanted to try the brand’s cleansers: Water Comfort One-Step Cleanser with Peach Essential Water and One-Step Facial Cleanser with Orange Extract.
I plan using them in the mornings when I am often in a rush, so picked up the first one this time and will get the other one next time. I will report back later but have big hopes for this product!

By the way, if you are looking for nice soaps, I personally really love Cowshed, those are brilliant.

So I’ve picked 5 different shades of blue eye liners from my collection. They are totally different and I love and wear all of them.
The shades that I’ve picked are:
Korres Eyeliner in Blue Black
The name pretty much says everything. It’s a very dark shade of blue.
Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes in 12 L
I love a good soap and always like trying new ones. My latest purchase was this Korres Milk Soap, which turned out to be for stressed skin. I actually did not know that but that when I was buying it (now what was I looking at?)
It is described as “an exceptionally mild, creamy lather soap that leaves a velvety feel on the skin.” And that is exactly how I would describe it myself.
It is very gentle but at the same time leathers up nicely and leaves the skin clean, without drying it out. Since I have very dry skin, I still have to use a moisturizer afterwards, but you may not need to.
Milk Soap can be used on the face and body, as the brand suggests, and I
I remember some time ago I had an idea of counting how much was worth the makeup that I was wearing. And last week, after I saw such post on one of the blog that I like, I though about doing the same thing.
So here is the makeup that I wore on Friday.
Firts of all I’ve used a Mineral Primer by BECCA, £34 (my review here). Then I’ve mixed two foundations – Bourjois 10 Hour Sleep Effect in 71 Abricote Clair,£9.5 with Max Factor Xperience Foundation in 85 Deep Soapstone, £10
I’ve used Chanel Bronze Universel (£26 or £28 I can’t remember) to countorand to add some colour to my face, highlighted with BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl, £33 (review here) and added some BECCA’s Beach Tint in Grapefruit, £19 (review here).
