Recently I received a lot of messages from people who were saying that during the time that we have now they were grateful for all the makeup and beauty things I have shared over the years. They also said how now, that they stay at home, they have time to enjoy beauty, and how it helps to take their minds off the situation. Knowing that it helps someone is very inspiring and makes me want to keep on going.
To be honest, I have read more beauty and style related (I even re-organised my clothes) content in the last several days than usual myself. I just found it to be therapeutic almost. This is why I will continue to write about beauty. At least for now.
And today I want to share about my latest discovery, an absolutely brilliant and affordable body lotion. I have used up a few body creams (here), and was excited to try something new.
More time at home – more time to read books
Dove were clearly listening to the customers, and named their product Nourishing Body Care Pro Age Body Lotion. No one really wants to hear anti-aging any more, and rightly so.
So what is so special about this product? It contains AHA, olive oil and vitamin B3 which does wonders for dry skin. I don’t think my skin was ever so smooth and soft; it is like this only when I am on a sea holiday. I am
After this feature about the new products that should be pretty epic for face, hair and body, I’ve decided to share the duo that I am currently loving.
I personally don’t like to have too many products from the same category but still love having 3-5 options to rotate them based on my mood, and skin condition.
And these are the shower gel and body cream combo which I reach for most of the times these days.
Both are definitely morning products. And I am obsessed with
I posted recently that I wanted to try Jordan Samuel’s body oil, and here it is with me finally.
I actually did not order it myself but it was a very thoughtful present from my husband. The brand is available from Cult Beauty but not the new Italian collection yet.
So I would recommend waiting (if you live in the UK), unless you are willing to pay the shipping and the tax, which came up to the same price as the actual product.
All that aside, I am very pleased with my first Jordan Samuel Skin product. I think $32 is a great price for a 100 ml of a body oil which looks so chic and has great ingredients (see the photo below).
Olio Per Il Corpo comes in a
During the lockdow(s) I have been on mission to discover independent/small beauty brands, and to share them with you. And here is the first feature in the series.
Before we start, I have to mention that I’ve bought all the products myself and am not affiliated with any of the companies. This way I can be unbiased and feature the businesses that I genuinely love.
The first brand we are gonna talk about is Conscious Skincare, a Welsh brand, already mentioned here.
The products I have are Sweet Orange and Frangipani Body Oil, £14 and Grapefruit Lemon and Cedarwood Body Butter, £15. And, let me tell you, I am
I have got this Malin + Goetz set at Zuneta for £20 as for myself as a Christmas gift. But it looks like that the kit is no longer available. But I am still going to let you know my impression as you can always get each product on its own.
I just love getting different kits with mini products as it’s a great way to try the brand without braking the bank.
So what do you get?
- Grapefruit Face Cleanser (full size 236 ml – £ 25)
- Vitamin E Face Moisturiser (full size 118 ml – £ 36)
- Vitamin B5 Body Moisturiser (full size 236 ml – £28)
- Bergamot Body Wash (full size 236 ml – £ 15.50)
- Cilantro Hair Conditioner (full size 236 ml – £16.50)
- Peppermint Shampoo (full size 236 ml – £ 16)
First of all I have to say that I absolutely love the design, I think it’s brilliant. And this kit was very useful when I was travelling.
I absolutely loved the shampoo and I would probably re-purchase it although I find that it is very expensive (236 ml – £ 16 and 473 ml for £ 30). I adore the fresh mint scent and it reminds me of mint sweets that I love. I find that it is very refreshing for summer and this shampoo is just a pleasure to use.
As for the hair conditioner – I really dislike cilantro which is also known as coriander so I can’t say that I’ve enjoyed using this conditioner as it has a strong scent of coriander. I’d rather put a conditioner with other scent, really.
The face wash is
