Vichy is not really the first brand which pops into my mind when I think about skincare but I’ve heard so many raves about the Aqualia Thermal range that decided to try it myself. And, as you can see, I have almost finished it already but somehow I’ve been really bad with skincare reviews last year.
But, it is better late then never, right?
Vichy use “Instant Comfort. Lasting Hydration” to describe this range, and I would agree. And I do like how it comes in a blue design, somehow it does make you feel about a hydrating beauty product.
I hate it when brands put the “for dry and very dry skin” label but in reality it doesn’t work for very dry. Well, this is not the case. Aqualia Thermal cream is amazing on the skin, it instantly helps with tight and dry feeling, it also makes the skin (feel) incredibly smooth (thanks to dimethicon being the third ingredient in the list?) and ready for theRead More
It’s time for monthly favourites! And this time I’ve decided to mention only those products that I have been really loving. Somehow I have re-discovered 17 Sheer Moisture Foundation which is now discontinued but which has been my base of choice lately, as it gives that beautiful light and glowing finish.
The other product which is not shown is Garnier HandRepair Intensive Restoring Hand Cream because I have used it all up. And, just like the body cream, this one is brilliant.Works wonders on my very dry hands and feet, it improved the condition [of my skin] dramatically, moisturized and nourished.
Clarins Joli Rouge Lipstick in 738 Royal Plum (review and lip swatches)
I have an old version of the lipstick but I will have a few samples of the new Joli Rouge to review and compare them for you. This is an amazing product! The sheer formula can be built up, or worn as a barely-there stain. And this the most beautiful dark plum, looks gorgeous on the lips, have been wearing it non-stop.
The only other makeup product is the new Rouge Bunny Rouge Naked Disguise Glide Concealer. And this, without a doubt, is now one of my favourite concealers ever. The texture is light but at the same time it transforms the under eye area by brightening and covering the dark circles. It doesn’t look or feel heavy and doesn’t set into the fine lines. I like the brand’s description “your skin but better”, and I agree.

I can’t believe that I stillRead More
I know that a lot of you get the skincare products for your men: husbands, boyfriends, fathers, brothers; even male friends, sometimes. So I though this would be appropriate to share about Vichy Homme Anti-Fatigue Hydrating Care For Face and Eyes, as it got a seal of approval from the man!
He ran out of his Clarins and, although I usually get his face products myself, this time I took him along so that he could take a part, too 😉
Apparently he chose the Vichy cream because it had the darkest packaging and looked very manly. So there you go!
Me: “How cool, this cream is formulated both for face and eyes!”
Him: “Oh, please, it’s not like I did not use other creams underneath my eyes.”
I usually have to askRead More
I actually love seeing what products other people finished and what products they re-purchased (even more). So I thought I’d show you some of the products that I have finished.
Although I love trying new products very much, some I re-purchase, as I find them to be amazing. Unfortunately, I have already thrown away most of the packages but here is what is left.
Vichy Dercos Shampooing Treatment Oil Control
I actually really liked this for summer as it cleaned my hair nicely without stripping it. I would re-purchase but I have already ordered a Cowshed shampoo which I’ve wanted to try for a long time already.
Philip Kingsley Body Building Shampoo
Unfortunately, this shampoo did not work for me because my hair got greasy after about 1.5 days which was not good at all. I would try other shampoo from the range but would not get this one again. I am actually taking PK vitamins for hair for the second month already (the course is four months) and I think I can see some improvements already. But will update on that in September.
Two Elemis products
Elemis tranquil Touch Body Polish (review here)
I had to cut the packaging to get every single drop of this product. I have actually purchased the second tube already. Next time I plan to get their mint scrub as it’s the only scrub from the brand I haven’t tried yet. Their Exotic Lime and Ginger Salt Glow is brilliant, too.
Elemis Treat Your Feet Foot Cream (review here)
This has to be the best foot cream I have ever tried! It is very effective and the scent is to die for. Whenever I use it and someone is around, I always get asked about it. And, yes, I have ordered one more tube last week. I highlyRead More
Father’s Day is just around the corner but what is even more important to me; it’s my Father’s birthday tomorrow.
Both events inspired me to write this post. This is not really a Father’s Day gift guide as almost all the on-line shops have one, this is just a post about favourite grooming products of my men. By my men I mean my father, boyfriend and my younger brother.
So a must have for my Dad is Vichy Capital Soleil Homme Body Spray with SPF30.
It is his second bottle actually. My Dad is not really a sun protection fan, he just has sun allergy so he must use a sun protection. I have big doubts he would bother if allergy was not the case. He tried a lot of sun protection products from Bioderma to La Roche-Posay and he says that this one is his favourite because it’s clear and not sticky so that he can use it on the go. Plus it’s a spray so it’s very easy to use.
Who knows, maybe you can convince your man to use a sun protection with a help of this product.
My boyfriend loves his L’Oreal Professionnel shampoos.
There is a small but important detail that I should mentionRead More
