Clarins Relax Bath & Shower Concentrate Review and Photos

I thought I’d show you one of my latest purchases from the brand – Relax Bath & Shower Concentrate.

I am a huge fan of everything relaxing for bath, so I just had to try this product!  I also love the idea that you can use it as a bath foam (photo included) or as a shower gel.

The scent actually reminds me of my favourite Aromatherapy Associates  Deep Relax . So if you find that AA version is too intense, you may want to try this one.

This Clarins Concentrate includes relaxing Valerian, essential oils of Basil, Geranium, Camomile, Petit Grain, among

Yves Rocher Oriental Shower Oil Review

Oils are a necessity for me, beauty-wise, especially in AW period. My skin is very dry, and during the cold months it is  flaky and sore. And I do love my daily hot shower which dries out  the skin even more. But I just can’t help it. The relaxing and anti-stress effect [of a hot shower] is  very important for me.

Yves Rocher Oriantal Shower Oil Review

This is why I’ve decided to get some shower oils. I have started with Yves Rocher Oriental Shower Oil .

And it is really lovely indeed. It has a subtle oriental scent, as the name suggests. The way it looks and smells – it reminds me of honey. My favourite way of using it is to apply to the skin directly. It turns into milk when contacted with water, and leaves the skin smelling divine, and feeling softer and more moisturized than after a regular gel. I still

Elemis Tranquil Touch Indulgent Bath Elixir Review and Photos

Remember my huge post about the new Elemis products?

Well, they kindly sent me two products from different ranges to try.  One is from the Body Awaken range and the other one is from the Body Exotics range.

The product I will be talking about today  is from the Body Exotics line, which I adore! So today I will tell you about the new Tranquil Touch Indulgent Bath Elixir 300ml, £19

It contains “skin conditioning cocoa butter, combined with sensuous patchouli, cedarwood, and vetiver”. As all the  products from the Exotics Line, it smells divine and it was love at first  sniff for me. I think that  [email protected] home is a great name for the range as the scent of both products that I’ve tried is very strong.

Right after I’ve got this product I had no time to take a bath but I really wanted to try it as soon as possible,  so I’ve decided to use it as a shower gel. And you know what? The scent actually stayed on my skin for a while, it did not disappear as soon as I left the shower as it often happens. I personally find this amazing and I wish the scent would be with me even for a longer time.

When using the product for bath, you get a decent amount of foam and your bathroom is full of  beautiful exotic aroma. Just make sure that you don’t use too much as  the scent is strong and it may be even a bit overwhelming.

I would love to see Elemis doing

June 2016 Beauty Favourites

It’s time for  June’s favourites, and somehow this time it is all about Clarins. I have bought quite a few products from the brand and have been sent some samples, and most products were incredible. After all it is one of my favourite brands for a reason. There are also two beauty tools, self tanning drops and bath salts.

Here we go.

Makeup

Let’s start with makeup, as there are only two products that really stood out to me. Technically three, but two are the same product just different shades. Clarins Blush & Bronzing Compact  (review and swatches) my love for this bronzer is still going strong. Now that I have a tan it looks amazing on, warms up the complexion and adds some definition.

As for the Clarins Waterproof Eyeshadow Shimmering Cream Colour (review and swatches) they are phenomenal, as I’ve already said. Extremely long-lasting and incredibly beautiful on the eyes. Just make sure you don’t apply too much, as they can look a bit dry. I’ve been wearing  03 Silver Taupe at the end of May and beginning of June when I still had a very pale complexion but now  04 Copper Brown is my favourite. It looks perfect now, am I a bronze goddess already?

Malin + Goetz Essential Kit Review and Photos

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.

Hair Products

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.
