While I usually love the sea salt hair sprays, this time I’ve decided to try a volumising mist without the I’ve-just-been-surfing-or-swimming-in-the-sea kind of effect.
Not gonna lie, I was probably mostly drawn to the stylish glass bottle and a cool modern design. I also like the sleek pump and the pistachio green label, with simple gold and black writing. I am describing the look of the product in such a detail as I firmly believe that, when it comes to high-end beauty, everything about it should bring joy. And this is clearly the case.
As for the product itself, I
I really love the Omorovicza Queen Of Hungary Mist which was inspired by the Queen of Hungary Water, which was the world’s first recorded perfume, formulated in the 14th century for Queen Elisabeth of Hungary.
It comes in a luxurious glass bottle and does smell divine (orange blossom, rose and sage). I personally love the strong scent but some people may find it a bit too powerful so keep that in mind.
I like the scent, as it is very uplifting and revitalizing and I always have it on my desk to refresh my face during the day.
Unlike some facial sprays, this one does give a noticeable improvements, I do feel that my face is more hydrated, supple and glowing. It is based on Hungarian thermal waters which are known for their great benefits when it comes to skincare.
I know that this is a
If you have never heard of terre d’Oc, it’s a luxury organic skincare from France. All the products are divided into five groups: Japan, Bali, India, Burkina Faso and Morrocco. Each range is based on the countries’ beauty rituals and most popular ‘beauty ingredient’ sourced in the region. I think it is a brilliant idea.
I was very lucky to get two products from the Japan range from the Tender Loving Skincare shop to try out. I happen to absolutely love both. So today I will tell you about one of them which is Milky Perfume Cloud in Plum Tree Blossom.
It comes in a luxurious glass bottle with a beautiful design. This product is definitely to spoil yourself!
I love using it on the body, mostly arms and chest as I’d rather use something else on my legs to save this magical product for a longer time. It does feel hydrating and non-sticky at all, it doesn’t leave any white residue as well. I also love using it on my hair as it holds the scent longer than the body.
Plum Tree Blossom is a
Father’s Day is just around the corner but what is even more important to me; it’s my Father’s birthday tomorrow.
Both events inspired me to write this post. This is not really a Father’s Day gift guide as almost all the on-line shops have one, this is just a post about favourite grooming products of my men. By my men I mean my father, male friend and my younger brother.
So a must have for my Dad is Vichy Capital Soleil Homme Body Spray with SPF30.
It is his second bottle actually. My Dad is not really a sun protection fan, he just has sun allergy so he must use a sun protection. I have big doubts he would bother if allergy was not the case. He tried a lot of sun protection products from Bioderma to La Roche-Posay and he says that this one is his favourite because it’s clear and not sticky so that he can use it on the go. Plus it’s a spray so it’s very easy to use.
Who knows, maybe you can convince your man to use a sun protection with a help of this product.
My friend loves his L’Oreal Professionnel shampoos.
There is a small but important detail that I should mention
