New Beauty Purchases: Clarins and SachaJuan

I have finished  two of my favourite products – Lierac Diopticreme Wrinkle Repair Cream Eye Contour (review) and Moroccanoil Light Oil Treatment (review) so it was time to get a worthy replacement.

This is why I’ve picked products from the brands that I really love – Clarins and SachaJuan.

FOM London Jet Set Essential Beauty Kit

FOM London Jet Set Essential Beauty Kit comes beautifully packaged in a black box with a crimson ribbon. It shows how the brand pays attention to the details, and wants their customers to enjoy everything about their service, from the look to the performance of the products.

Besides the pleasing aesthetic side of the kit, you get a well-thought about packaging: mini glass bottles with the pumps! How convenient is that? You don’t need to worry about getting the product all over and creating a mess. Moreover, you don’t waste any product that way.

Clarins One Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser Review

Today I want to tell you about the Clarins One Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser which was the part of this set that I’ve bought for myself as a post-holidays treat.

Since it’s a part of the Clarins’ girls top 5 products, I had high expectations and it did not disappoint.

It is basically a face wash and scrub two-in-one which means that you do your cleansing in only one step, as the name suggests.

I find that it does a great job: removes all traces of makeup and cleanses the skin really well, without drying it out ( I have very dry skin and I could not believe that I did not have that ”tight” feeling afterwards). Although, I usually prefer enzyme peels over scrubs, this one is rather gentle. I’d say it’s spot on, not too “scrubby” but just good enough to exfoliate the skin.

I also like the lovely orange scent, which is a nice touch; this is especially awesome in the

Eyes Of The Day: Red Eye Liner with Inglot AMC Eyeliner Gel in 79

In this post I have promised to show you what I have picked up from Inglot, so here is the first product!

I wanted a red eye liner for a long time now but somehow I just could not justify buying it as I thought that I would use it very few times.

But last week I finally gave up and got myself one! And let me tell you, I am very happy that I did.

It is Inglot’s AMC Eyeliner Gel in 79 and here is how it looks like in the pot.

I won’t write a detailed review as I have already written one about a brown shade which you can read here. Instead I want to show you how this liner looks on the eyes.

Now I personally would (and

Nails Of The Day: GOSH 549 Holographic Nail Polish

I’ve been meaning to get this GOSH nail polish for quite a long time but  it was sold out all the time. Finally it is mine, I’ve got the last bottle by the way.

I never had a holographic nail polish before so I was mesmerized by this one and instead of working I was staring at my nails most of the time.

Isn’t it beautiful?

But my problem was that by the mid of the day my nail polish did not look as nice as it was supposed to look. Later I read on the bottle that due to a special formula  one should wear a 565 Fix Base Coat. Yes, I was so excited to try this nail polish that haven’t noticed that before.

I am a bit surprised that one should use a special base coat not a top coat, but I am not a nail polish expert.  Next time I will definitely try the proper application. I had to remove my nail polish on the other day because it looked to bad.

I am not sure if all holographic nail polishes are like this or only this one though. I don’t like the staying power but I really like the effect.

I’ve been
