Vichy Aqualia Thermal Rich Face Cream Review

Vichy is not really the first brand which pops into my mind when I think about skincare but I’ve heard so many raves about the Aqualia Thermal  range that decided to try it myself. And, as you can see, I have almost finished it already but somehow I’ve been really bad with skincare reviews last year.

But, it is better late then never, right?

Vichy Aqualia Thermal Rich Face Cream ReviewVichy use “Instant Comfort. Lasting Hydration” to describe this range, and I would agree. And I do like how it comes in a blue design, somehow it does make you feel about a hydrating beauty product.

I hate it when brands put the “for dry and very dry skin” label but in reality it doesn’t work for very dry. Well, this is not the case. Aqualia Thermal cream is amazing on the skin, it instantly helps with tight and dry feeling, it also makes the skin (feel) incredibly smooth (thanks to dimethicon being the third ingredient in the list?) and ready for the

Givenchy La Revelation Originelle Spring 2016 makeup collection is exactly what we all need in January. Gorgeous highlighter, and refreshing pink for lips, nails and cheeks. There are also a brown eye liner, grey mascara and colourful eye shadows.

Givenchy La Revelation Originelle Makeup Collection for Spring 2016 lips and faceThe star of the collection is definitely the uber gorgeous illuminator Poudre Lumiere Originelle (£41.50), an enhancing powder for an imperceptible, soft focus finish. It is a light pink highlighter  that leaves the skin radiant and luminous.  Quite possibly the most beautiful powder of the season.

There is also a new shade of the cult  Le Prisme Blush (£32) in 41 Lune Rosée which combines the following shades: peach, light pink, rose pink and coral. Seems like another must have to perk up the complexion.

I love the idea of the brand’s  Mister Scrub (£22 ) which is a gentle exfoliator in a stick format and  Mister Gentlebalm (£22) which is a lip balm that combines a moisture booster and a colour enhancer to nourish, hydrate and naturally reveal lip colour.

The nail polish in this collection is the pastel pink Le Vernis (£17)  in 29 Rose Divin

As for the eye products:

The promo image with blue and pink shades makes me smile and think of a beautiful spring ahead of us. It looks romantic and carefree, if you ask me. And we all need that…

To be honest, I did not pay that much attention when it came to  Stila in the past but recently things changed. I think the brand is killing it with the latest releases. Their Christmas collection was one of the best but I love the Spring  2016  products even more. There is nothing in this collection I wouldn’t want.

And The Impressionist name and blue background?! As someone who studied culture and arts at uni – I couldn’t love it more. What a perfect example of combining art and beauty, other brands should take notes. Also,  I am really loving the new improved website. The looks featured are just so beautiful. Sarah Lucero, Stila’s Global Executive Director of Creative Artistry is a genius, I tell you.

So, after I’ve posted a preview of  Rouge Bunny Rouge SKIN SOUL DROPS Foundation Essence, it is time for a proper review.

So here are my thoughts about it:

Rouge Bunny Rouge SKIN SOUL DROPS Foundation Essence Review and Swatches packagingThe packaging is gorgeous, the product comes in a black cupboard tube with the signature RBR design. Te bottle itself is  a dark matte glass, the foundation comes with a dropper.

The price is almost €60 (€59) which seems really expensive for 15ml but, as the name suggests, it is an essence which means that it is a very concentrated liquid. You need a tiny drop for your face, and it will last you for ages.

The brand describes the finish as demi-matte, and I agree. It gives that flawless coverage and evens out the skin tone perfectly. Just make sure you add some dimension back with a blush or whichever product you prefer.

Rouge Bunny Rouge SKIN SOUL DROPS Foundation Essence Review and Swatches 1Skin Soul Drop is not really an on-the go foundation. The application takes some time, and you can’t just “slap it on”. I like applying it with two brushes. A classic flat synthetic foundation brush (something like this one) to spread it out evenly and a kabuki brush (like Sigma) to blend it into the skin.

I personally think that
