Sometimes when you have a lot of beauty products, it can be hard to get excited about them. But I am uber happy with my recent purchases, as I’ve hand-picked them all after hours (literally) of browsing various on-line shops.
There are actually more products that I plan to get soon, so stay tuned.
Since I’ve used up several body creams, I’ve decided to get some new ones, but I’ve limited myself to two only, since I still have more than enough. Rituals Shanti Chakra Caring Body Oil Spray (£13.50) and Roger & Gallet Fleur de Figuier Body Lotion (£9.10) really caught my attention. What body products are your favourites? Any recommendations?
I wanted to try PhytoNeutre Clarifying Detox Shampoo (£10.50) for a long time already, as heard a lot of great things about it, and needed a new
Vitamins and Supplements Review: Philip Kingsley PK4, ONGA Beuty & Energy and Vertese Omega Oils 3 6 9
I would like to talk about the vitamins today. And I am, obviously, not an expert in this field, this is just the selection that I have tried.
Philip Kingsley PK4 Hair Dietry Supplement – 120 Capsules, £22
I wanted to try vitamins for hair for ages and finally got these in Summer. The results are promised after four months (you will need two packs to last you four months) and these vitamins do deliver!
Even my hair dresser told me that the condition of my hair really improved, it look healthier, grows a bit quicker than usual and I’ve noticed (and not only myself, as I’ve been getting compliments about my hair, which never really happened before) that the general condition improved a lot.
I have got these vitamins under the impression of the positive reviews I read on-line and will definitely repeat the course in the future.
Vertese Omega Oils 3 6 9 500mg 60 Capsules, £6.50
I am usually very attentive when I choose anything but somehow, instead of fish oil, I ended up with Vertese, which are vegetarian and vegan Omega Oils 3 6 9, derived from natural plant sources.
Since so many skin care experts recommend Omega oils as a part of skincare routine – I just had to give it a go.
I’ve been using Philip Kingsley’s PK 4 HAIR vitamins for three months and have been seeing great results (will do a review later), so have decided to try the brand’s cult product which is Elasticizer.
I’ve got the smallest tube ( £12.25 for 75 ml), to see how I like it before getting a full sized product.
I don’t have damaged or colour treated hair to begin with, but I do see great results anyway. Although, you should leave it for 10-20 minutes, I usually leave it on for a longer time while I am doing some kind of work around the house ( I use it in the evening). And then shampoo, as usual.
Usually (90%) I let my hair dry naturally and don’t style it in any way but, once again, I can see that my hair is soft, shiny and in a great condition, as if I have just visited the salon! It is definitely so much better than most hair products I’ve tried before. I actually don’t use conditioners as don’t see any results, but this is very different.

I actually love seeing what products other people finished and what products they re-purchased (even more). So I thought I’d show you some of the products that I have finished.
Although I love trying new products very much, some I re-purchase, as I find them to be amazing. Unfortunately, I have already thrown away most of the packages but here is what is left.
Vichy Dercos Shampooing Treatment Oil Control
I actually really liked this for summer as it cleaned my hair nicely without stripping it. I would re-purchase but I have already ordered a Cowshed shampoo which I’ve wanted to try for a long time already.
Philip Kingsley Body Building Shampoo
Unfortunately, this shampoo did not work for me because my hair got greasy after about 1.5 days which was not good at all. I would try other shampoo from the range but would not get this one again. I am actually taking PK vitamins for hair for the second month already (the course is four months) and I think I can see some improvements already. But will update on that in September.
Two Elemis products
Elemis tranquil Touch Body Polish (review here)
I had to cut the packaging to get every single drop of this product. I have actually purchased the second tube already. Next time I plan to get their mint scrub as it’s the only scrub from the brand I haven’t tried yet. Their Exotic Lime and Ginger Salt Glow is brilliant, too.
Elemis Treat Your Feet Foot Cream (review here)
This has to be the best foot cream I have ever tried! It is very effective and the scent is to die for. Whenever I use it and someone is around, I always get asked about it. And, yes, I have ordered one more tube last week. I highly
A photo of myself online, yeah, I know…
My partner and I just came back from the most incredible holiday in Cyprus last week, and I thought I’d share a few photos and some of our favourite beauty/grooming products.
Probably the most used product was Clarins Sun Care Oil Spray [Clarins is available from Selfridges,Harrods, Escentual.com, Nordstorm, Sephora, Bergdorf Goodman.] just like all the other Clarins for/after sun products. I was picturing the most beautiful photos I’d take for this feature but, unfortunately, we’ve been too busy enjoying our vacation so I did not have time to do everything that I’ve wanted.
At least I’ve managed to snap a few beautiful views of the island.
Here is also an overview of some of the
