Want It: Estee Lauder La Dangereuse by Violette Makeup Collection

To be honest, Estee Lauder was never the brand I cared for that much until recently, somehow very few products appealed to me. The  break through for me was the collaboration with Victoria Beckham.I’ve been following her for ages now.

And ever since EL appointed Violette to be their Creative Director, everything changed. This is her second collection, and it looks perfect. I also love how well edited it is, there are only a few products but they are absolutely perfect!

6 No-Knife Rejuvenation Procedures A-List Stars Swear By

Being in my 30’s I am now paying more attention when it comes to regular facials,  started getting professional peelings, and I am just a firm believer that you should always take the best care of your skin.  While I am personally not getting any kind of injections or liftings (just yet), I think it is important to know what options are out there. Hence today’s feature is in collaboration with Hayley Sloan, medical writer for The Breslow Center.

A facelift is an effective way to keep Father Time at bay, but it isn’t your only option.

If you’re thinking about going under the knife but are concerned about the risks and downtime, have no fear! Advances in the field of plastic surgery have paved the way for several viable alternatives.

Here are six of the most popular and effective facial rejuvenations options that Hollywood celebs go for to stave off the signs of aging.

1. Botox

Botox is the most popular non-invasive cosmetic treatment in the United States. It works by temporarily freezing targeted muscles in the face and neck.

This procedure costs less than surgery, requires very little downtime, and is an excellent option for treating fine lines, brow wrinkles, crow’s feet, and forehead creases. Results can be seen in as little as seven days, though ongoing injections are recommended.

2. Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers work by adding volume to areas of the face. This helps  to reduce the

SOL DE JANEIRO Brazilian Bum Bum Cream Review

As you can imagine, I see new beauty launches every single day so the product has to be very special to stand out, let alone, for me to want to buy it,  especially considering the amount of items I already have.

But when I saw SOL DE JANEIRO Brazilian Bum Bum Cream  I knew I had to have it. To be honest, the team behind this product are a bunch of geniuses!

So what about my impression? The first thing you notice is the oh-so-cool design. Who does not want that

Darphin Aromatic Cleansing Balm with Rosewood Review

I’ve used up  Darphin Aromatic Cleansing Balm  till the very last drop, so it is about time I write about it.

This cleanser is a cult product in the industry, and rightly so. First of all, as the name suggests, it smells absolutely incredible, there is something soothing and relaxing about using it at the end of the day, it is like a well deserved “me time”.
