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.
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 thatRead More

It’s time for June’s favourites, and somehow this time it is all about Clarins. I have bought quite a few products from the brand and have been sent some samples, and most products were incredible. After all it is one of my favourite brands for a reason. There are also two beauty tools, self tanning drops and bath salts.
Here we go.
Let’s start with makeup, as there are only two products that really stood out to me. Technically three, but two are the same product just different shades. Clarins Blush & Bronzing Compact (review and swatches) my love for this bronzer is still going strong. Now that I have a tan it looks amazing on, warms up the complexion and adds some definition.
As for the Clarins Waterproof Eyeshadow Shimmering Cream Colour (review and swatches) they are phenomenal, as I’ve already said. Extremely long-lasting and incredibly beautiful on the eyes. Just make sure you don’t apply too much, as they can look a bit dry. I’ve been wearing 03 Silver Taupe at the end of May and beginning of June when I still had a very pale complexion but now 04 Copper Brown is my favourite. It looks perfect now, am I a bronze goddess already?
