Considering that Aromatherapy Associates Soothing Cleansing Balm is one of the best cleansers I have ever used, it is surprising that I have not written about it earlier.
This cleanser has a lovely formula that works great for an evening facial massage, it is not greasy or tacky, just a nice balmy texture. The product doesn’t have a strong overpowering scent, it smells of camomile to me.
I personally take off my makeup with a micellar water first, and then use this lush cleanser, as I’d rather massage my skin with it, instead of taking off my mascara (which you can obviously do, if you want to).

October is one of my favourite months and I am kind of sad that it is over already but it was a great one despite the fact that I was ill for over a week.
I’ve decided that before talking about my beauty favourites, I’d mention some other things I like/enjoy:
- I’ve finally went to my first swimming class after planning on going for months. Since I’ve got sick the next day I haven’t been back yet but I will be. Next week.
- Downton Abbey. That 1920’s style…And I refuse to accept that it’s the last season.
- Since I was ill for a week at home, I’ve got time to read and it was wonderful. I was mostly reading cultural and philosophical articles (yeah, I do love such topics) but here is my reading list.
- And finally – Pinterest. This has to be my favourite social media, I am always browsing/pinning/saving photos.
Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in Alluring Rose (review and swatches)
This is probably my favourite launch of the year. Seriously, I could not love these blushes more than I do, and I feel like I have been going on, and on about them. They have the creamiest and softest texture, blend beautifully and have that all-in-one effect. You don’t really need any highlighter or sculpting, just this. AndRead More
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.
And what products are inside the set?Read More

I have waited with a review of 111SKIN Daily Orbit Energising Youth Essence NAC Y² for such a long time that the name and the design have been changed. Is it batter late than never? But the product is still the same, so don’t worry…
111Skin is a niche luxury brand, and what is so special about it you may ask? It was created by Dr. Alexandrides with the help of the space scenarists responsible for the well-being of the astronauts. The thing is that NAC Y² formula, which is used by the brand, is the one that astronauts use in the outer space, where the conditions are harsh and extreme ( don’t forget the no gravity and radiation factor) which causes the skin to age a lot faster.
This all sounds interesting but does it really work for us, common (wo)men, as well?
I have tried several products from the range, and I am very impressed. From my experience, not all the lines with come with a high price tag actually deliver. Luckily,Read More
