Used Up Products: Elemis, Clarins, Vichy, Apivita. LUSH, Lancome and Philip Kingsley

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.

Two Shampoos

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 highly

Clarifying Cream-to-Foam Cleanser by Lancome and Purete Thermale 3 in 1 Cleanser by Vichy.Review

Today I would like to tell you about the skin products that I’ve been using for a while now and that I really liked. Of course skin care is personal so the fact that I liked these products doesn’t mean that you will.  I am talking about Clarifying Cream-to-Foam Cleanser by Lancome and Purete Thermale 3 in 1 Cleanser by Vichy.*

1. Crème Radiance, Clarifying Cream-to-Foam Cleanser, $24.50 for 125 ml

A Luxurious Balance of Science and Nature: Reveal Purified, Pampered Skin.

This gentle cream-to-foam cleanser with antioxidant White Lotus and soothing Rose de France penetrates deep into the pores without over-drying to gently remove makeup, even waterproof, dissolve impurities and purify the skin.

Massage over wet face and throat. Rinse with lukewarm water. Follow with Tonique Radiance for clarified and luminous skin.

Dermatologist and ophthalmologist-tested for safety.

My impression:

I use this product only when I take a bath because I try not to wash my face very often and I don’t use scrub for face anymore. First of all I’d like to say that I absolutely love the scent of this cleanser, just divine. Moreover, I love how my skin feels after it, so clean, smooth and fresh. Also you need a tiny amount of it or at least I do because I’ve had this mini version since December and I still have more than a half of it. Also my skin doesn’t feel dry at all and I’ve noticed some improvements in the condition of my skin.

Artdeco Long Lasting Liquid  Eyeliner in Black 01

Ever since Rouge Bunny Rouge changed the nib of my favourite eye liner, I am on a hunt for a prefect replacement, as it was the one I used pretty much every day. This time I’ve got the ArtDeco one, and it looked almost identical on-line, but unfortunately it is not in real life. However, it is a good one and I hope I will enjoy using it.

Orly Nail Defence Strengthening Protein Treatment

After a very bad experience at a nail salon (this is what happens when you cheat on your manicurist who works far from both your home and work) – I really need to restore my nails,  and this

The Best Grooming Products For Your Man

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,  male friend 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 friend loves his L’Oreal Professionnel shampoos.

He says that out of all the shampoo he’s ever tried these are the best.

There is a small but important detail that I should mention

Vichy Homme Anti-Fatigue Hydrating Care For Face and Eyes

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 my brother.

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 ask
