Elemis Skin Brilliance Holiday 2010 Set Review and Photos

I hope that you remember my post about Elemis holiday 2010 gift sets. So here is the  Skin Brilliance set which includes:

  • Rehydrating Rosepetal Cleanser 200ml
  • Soothing Apricot Toner 200ml
  • Maximum Replenish Night Cream 50ml
  • Maximum Moisture Day Cream 20ml

This is how amazing the set looks like! You don’t have to think about the box and how to wrap it, really every woman would be happy to get such set, it looks beautiful!

And this is how it looks like inside and my thoughts.

I’ve been using these products for some time now and  I really like the condition of my skin. It’s a pleasure to use all the products and I am happy with the results. I won’t get into details because everyone has a different skin type and skin needs but here are just some general thougts:

Elemental Herbology Vital Cleanse Facial Cleanser Review

I adore all of my cleansing balms (here are only some) but sometimes I just want to use an effective cleanser which takes less time, usually that is in the mornings. Recently I’ve posted about a REN cleanser that I love and today I want to share about the Elemental Herbology Vital Cleanse Facial Cleanser.

Elemental Herbology Vital Cleanse Facial Cleanser Review

This cleanser is a brand’s best seller, and I can see why. It is gentle and does not irritate the skin but effectively cleanses it, leaving your complexion soft, smooth and radiant with time. The texture is lovely,  it is not too runny so is suitable for a gentle massage.

It is a perfect morning cleanser as has that uplifting citrus-y scent to it.  I find that

Lush Products for Bath:Review and Photos

Although I made several posts about Lush already I never really shared my opinion. I also never shared my opinion about any MAC products because there are already TOO MANY reviews about these brands. But I guess it’s time to brake the rules and bring you some reviews about Lush and MAC Cosmetics (in the future).

Do you want to know what I got?

This time I’ve got only 5 products because I want to visit Lush again very soon. I’ve already made the list of what to get 😉

I got :

1. Mmm Melting Marshmallow Moment £3.50

Slow melting musky marshmallow marvel. MMM melts into a pink, fluffy waterbed of marshmallow and moisturizing cocoa butter. Each Melting Marshmallow Moment is made with marshmallow herb, which produces a sweet, skin-soothing mucilage that was used to make sugar candies for hundreds of years, and marigold, which is equally calming for your skin. Take your time, savour each moment and have as many marshmallows as you like.

2.Sex Bomb,£2.95

Jasmine, clary sage and ylang ylang to make you feel like a love goddess. The power of these aphrodisiac oils lies in their ability to relax you at the same time as warming your heart and other body parts. The ancient perfumers of the Mediterranean knew a thing or two about lurve and we’re using the methods they used thousands of years ago for the same results. Whether you want to be calm for a big night out or a quiet night in, prepare to detonate a Sex Bomb.

3.Dreamtime Bath Melt, £2.90

Skin softening, soothing and sleep-inducing melt. Guess when you should drop this luxuriously creamy block into the water? Bedtime! It may look small, but its secret strengths lie in its scent. The Dreamtime causes your worries to fade away with jasmine, lavender calms your head and sandalwood relaxes your limbs, so use it whenever you need a good night’s sleep, soft skin and sweet dreams.

4. Wee Harry, £2.95 with one eye, lol

Elf and safety warming! A warm, spicy bubble bath inspired by warm, spicy Scandinavian drinks. (And elves.) When you visit a Luh shop, you’ll notice that Wee Harry has a diffrent name, but don’t worry: he’s still the same Christmas elf. We realised that every culture has its yuletide elf named different.

5. Sea Vegetable,£2.75

A refreshing splash in the ocean. Sea Vegetable is made with seaweed, one of our favourite ingredients, with a crust of stimulating sea salt to give your body a good scrub down. It smells of lime, lavender and seaweed, a bit like sitting at the beach next to someone applying suntan lotion. This is a great soap for sharing amongst the whole household. The scent is perfectly balanced for boys and girls everywhere.

Clarins Instant Concealer Review and Swatches

I am personally aTouche Eclat girl” when it comes to under eye products, although it is a highlighter, not a concealer, I find that it works for me! But sometimes, that is not enough. If only I had more hours of sleep.

I have very dry skin, so can’t imagine putting heavy, full coverage concealers/correctors under the eyes, as those would make me look 10 years older.

That’s why I was curious to try Clarins’ Insant Concealer.

Clarins-Instant-Concealer--Review-and-Swatches 1

I have shade No2, which is described as 02 pinky-beige, and which is a perfect match for my skin tone.

I love the design of this concealer, you don’t have to put your fingers in it, or  use the attached brush, like with most  concealer-type products, so it’s a good one to have in a kit, too.

The formula is

Nails Of The Day: Inglot 722 Yellow Nail Polish

I am a fan of a yellow nail polish for a long time already and I even posted one shade of yellow before.

But I wanted the other shade of yellow for this SS and it was BEFORE I saw Mimosa, so no, this purchased was not influenced by Chanel. I just couldn’t find the shade I wanted for a long time.   But luckily I’ve managed to find it at Inglot. By the way, they have 4 or 5 yellow nail polishes from very pale, almost white pastel to a dark orangey yellow.

So here is the nail polish which I’ve got.

To tell the truth, you need some skills to apply it as this nail polish is unforgiving and it will show all the imperfections. And yes, everyone will look on your nails when you are wearing such a bright yellow.

After some errors I’ve managed to paint my nails but I still can’t say that I am very happy with the effect. But practice makes perfect as we all know.

To make this nail polish look nice I would recommend
