Birthday Outfit and Makeup

It was my Birthday this weekend so I’ve decided to share with you what I wore and what makeup I’ve used. I don’t see Birthdays as a big deal (after a certain age, ha!) but it is always cool to dress up and spend time with friends and family.

Of course, I went for red with a touch of black, outfit wise. And here is the makeup I’ve used:

Face

Vichy BB Cream, I need to buy a full size of it soon, it is an amazing light  base which gives some luminosity.  Rouge Bunny Rouge  Naked Disguise Glide Concealer which is brilliant for the under eye area. Inglot HD Sculpting Powder in 504 is my favourite for that natural looking shadow and theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer for some glow.

Lips and Nails

Surprisingly I’ve used a very affordable trio: NYX  Soft Matte Lip Cream in Transylvania which I am obsessed with

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.

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

Vichy Essentielles Repairing Hand Cream. Photos and Review

When I was passing  the Vichy display the other day the pretty range with roses caught my attention so I’ve decided to take a look and as a result went home with two products.

One of them is this Essentielles Repairing Hand Cream (50ml) which promises to soothe, soften and nourish skin with moisture. It contains roses polyphenols  and is paraben free.

The package is really amazing and girly, it has a pretty rose and the pink elements to it.

But what about the cream itself?
