I had a Holistic Silk Relax Eye Mask on my wish list for a very long time but it was very hard to justify an almost £50 price.

But when I saw that several months ago Aromatherapy Associates were giving away an amazing gift with purchase with this mask, I just went for it.

Aromatherapy Associates & Holistic Silk Relax Eye Mask ReviewSo what is so special about this mask, anyway?

It is a  lightly cushioned eye mask that has dried lavender inside.  Plus, the velvet lining feels soft and nice against the skin and blocks the light. Not to mention that it looks incredibly beautiful. Yes, when you pay this much every little thing matters.

This sounds like a

You all know that I am a huge fan of cream products, and mentioned various cream blushers so many times. But what about bronzers?

Yes, cream bronzers! I have three variants to show you here:

Cream Bronzers Chanel, Laura Mercier and Sienna XThe most famous is definitely Soleil Tan de  Chanel  (review and swatches)

It is a cult classic for a reason, it is such a versatile product, it can be used as a base to warm up the complexion or as a regular bronzer to add some glow and definition to the face. The texture is light and the formula blends like a dream. I Highly recommend it, unless you very fair skin tone, this is the most orange-toned bronzer out of three.

You can buy this product from Selfridges  for £32 or Nordstrom for $48.

You all know that I love my Clarins  skincare, but since I’ve already tried most of their products for my skin type (some of them I have re-purchased more than once), I’ve decided to try some other brands, along with Clarins.

And the brands that I’ve decided to add to my routine are REN and Ole Henrikson.  I already posted several features about REN, (speaking of REN, I am really intrigued by this new product) and it’s the first time I am writing about Ole Henriksen actually.

I’d like to share about the face cream that I’ve been loving  a lot lately - Sheer Transformation Creme.

Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation Creme ReviewIt is  an oil-free moiusturizer that gently exfoliates the skin and fades dark posts, while nourishing the skin at the same time. Moreover, here are more claims from the brand:

  • Actiwhite™ and licorice: Prevents and corrects discolouration and evens skin tone with an effective combination of pea extract and sugar.
  • Vitamin C: Stimulates collagen production.
  • Fruit and beta hydroxy acids: Retexturises and soothes lines.
  • Sandalwood, geranium, licorice and chamomile: Soothes, replenishes, balances and purifies the skin.
  • Vitamin E: Heals, restores and nourishes the skin.

But does that all work?

Clarins Must Have 3 Pink Lip Products 1

I did a detailed review of each so I won’t say a lot this time but will just mention that all three are phenomenal, they all are like a mix of lip treatment and a beautiful colour glosses. Smell amazing and feel nice when applied. It only depends on the applicator and the effect that you want on your lips:

Regular readers know that I am not a big powder user ( I have a lot of different powders in my kit; but this is the only one that I use on myself). But even I, with my very dry skin, like some powder on a hot and humid day. To a)make my makeup last longer b)mattify my T-zone a bit.

This is why today I want to tell you about my personal favourite powder which is Rouge Bunny Rouge Flawless Face Powder Precious Velvet. 

I’ve had it for 2 years now, so I am not sure why it took me so long to write about it…

Rouge Bunny Rouge Flawless Face Powder Precious Velvet Review

Why do I like it?

  • It doesn’t enhance the dry patches on the skin that I may have and doesn’t dry out  my skin.
  • I don’t feel this powder on my face, it is very lightweight.
  • The brand says that it melds with the skin, and I totally agree.  It is not visible at all. You just get a perfected and flawless finish.
  • I like the effect Precious Velvet gives, it mattifyes  but doesn’t  make your face look  flat and life-less, you skin shows through.
  • For me personally, the effect lasts all day, but if you  very have oily skin, you may need a special matte powders. I haven’t tried it on anyone with such skintype so can’t make any comments. But on girls with normal skin  it worked amazing, as well.
  • As for the main ingredients, Rouge Bunny Rouge list the following: “Papaya Fruit Extract as a natural “face lift” and skin softener, plus Hyssop Extract with soothing properties. Rice Powder imparts a perfectly natural, non-shiny finish. “
