Morning Shower Routine: Kerastase, Oskia, Costes

I thought I’d start Monday with a quick post about my current morning shower routine. I have bought several new products last week, and absolutely enjoy using them, along with some old time favourites.

Here they are:

Morning Shower Routine Oskia, Kerastase and Costes

Costes Shower Gel, £18 for 200 ml from Cult Beauty

I already had a Costes soap, and this time decided to get a shower gel. And, it’s the same signature addictive scent of a” spicy, woody mix of coriander seeds, white pepper, laurel, oriental woods, incense, musk and a touch of rose”.  Shower gel is a very boring purchase, unless it’s this one.  Not only I’ve got a tube for myself, but also one for a very special friend.

Kérastase Densifique Bain Densité Bodifying Shampoo (review), 250 ml for £14.45 from Feel Unique.

This is still one of my favourite shampoos, it

Post-Sun Beauty Products: My Picks

I know that it is already September, which means the end of summer, and I am posting about the after-sun products. But I know that a lot of my readers are still going on holidays… Plus  new season will be upon us in a blink of an eye, it is always like that.

So here are the two products that I’ve been using post-sun on my face and body this summer on my holiday.

After Sun products Clarins After Sun Replenishing Moisture Care For Face and Decollete and La Roche-Posay Hydrating After-Sun Melt-In Gel reviewThis pic was taken in Greece on a small beach which the locals showed us, not far from Olympus.

Face: Clarins After Sun Replenishing Moisture Care For Face and Decollete

I still have to find a Clarins product which I don’t like…This is not an exception. It feels so soothing and hydration on the face, the texture is light and smooth. It calms and moisturizes the skin, and smells amazing, too. Clarins also promise that it prolongs the tan.

I like the fact that it comes with a pump which

I know that a lot of readers come to Makeup4all for all things Clarins, so here, as promised, is my guide to Clarins toners. I did a detailed review about each product, so this post will be a brief summery, you can read all the details by clicking the links.

Before we start, I’d like to mention that I have very dry and sensitive skin, and my age group is 26-30.

One-Step Facial Cleanser with Orange Extract (review)

Such an amazing orange scented product which gently cleanses the skin, leaves is super smooth, soft and glowing. A must have here. Will re-purchase in the future. Can I say once again that I love it?!

I wanted to get a new cleansing milk/toner for the times when I don’t have time to do a “proper” cleanse,  so realized that I never got around trying Clarins One-Step Facial Cleanser with Orange Extract.

Clarins One-Step Facial Cleanser with Orange Extract Review

So, off to the Clarins counter I went. For some reason, the sales assistant (and she is a very lovely girl, and knows me by now, of course) couldn’t understand which product I was talking about, and showed me all the different cleansers.

Why am I telling you that?

  • a) the girl told me that I know Clarins products better than she does. Not gonna lie, that was a lot coming from her.
  • b) I have realized that I have tried all the cleansers & toners she showed me, so it’d probably be a good thing to make a Clarins toners/cleansers guide. What do you think?

But back to the cleanser itself. It is so good!

Pretty much all Clarins products I’ve tried are brilliant, and this one is not an exception.  The cleanser

I have been using  Lierac Diopticreme Wrinkle Repair Cream Eye Contour for 20+ days so, I think, can finally tell you my opinion about it.

I really wanted to get a Lierac eye cream, as I have heard a lot of great things about it.

There are actually five products in the Diopti range: Dioptigel, puffiness reducing gel,  Diopticerne and Diopticerne Teinte,  dark circle correcting cream, Diopticreme,  wrinkle repair cream, Diopticalm, soothing balm and mask and Dioptidemaq, makeup removing gel.

I’ve picked up the anti-wrinkle one, as I believe in “prevention” and  that good skincare means a lot and does work! I am judging by looking on the older ladies who took a good care of their skin.  By the way, I would recommend this feature about anti-ageing by Caroline Hirons.

Moreover, unfortunately, my skin underneath the eyes is showing the first signs of ageing, even though I am in the 25-30 age group.

The regular face cream just doesn’t cut it for me and I can totally see the difference when I use the cream formulated for the delicate under eye area. Totally worth the investment, if you ask me.

By no means
