Summer 2014 Empties: Clarins, Elemis, Concoction, Rituals, Roger & Gallet

It’s been quite some time since I did the “empties” post last time. Since this¬† weekend I was cleaning my bathroom, and found several empty bottles, I though I’d share with you. I usually throw those away immediately, but here are some that I’ve kept for the post ūüôā

So, here we go…

A lot of Clarins, nothing new here. Clarins Extra-Comfort Toning Lotion for Dry and Sensitive Skin and Clarins Water Comfort One-Step Cleanser with Peach Essential Water are simply brilliant. Both products!¬† One of the best toner, and¬† a great morning cleanser when you don’t have time or don’t want to spend a lot of time massaging in your cleansing balm. I will definitely re-purchase both in the future.

The Double Serum¬† doesn’t even need an introduction, it was probably the most talked about, multi-award winning,¬† serum in the last two years.¬† And rightly so, it is very good.

The best on-line shop to buy Clarins from is Escentuals.

Lately I’ve been obsessed with

Cleansing Balms and Melting Cleansers Round-Up

I am a big fan of cleansing balms and melting cleansers mostly because they work great for my dry and sensitive skin, and  also because I love to massage my face while using a cleanser.

It all started with Elemis Melting Cleansing Gel (review) back in 2011, and I never looked back! Over the years I have now tried quite a few, so decided to make a lill’ round-up. Maybe, if you are looking for such kind of cleanser, this will be helpful.

Clarins Mineral Eye Make-Up Palette and Christmas Gift Sets 2013

So, here is a preview of the new Clarins palette and amazing value sets for Christmas.

First of all, they released a¬†Mineral Eye Make-Up Palette with ten natural shades which retails for ¬£35. And it’s about time!

There are also a lot of value beauty and makeup sets to choose from. I personally have a tradition of getting at least one Clarins set each year. At least this is what I did for the last three years. It’s a great opportunity to try the brand’s products if you are not familiar with Clarins. Or to stock up on your favourites, while saving money, which is my case.

I think I will get HydraQuench set this year, as I am a die hard fan of the line and am running out of  the serum and cream already.

I have reviewed tonnes of Clarins products over the years, so you can take a look if you are curious about any.

New Beauty Purchases: Clarins and Korres

I am a huge fan of Clarins’ toners: I have already tried Clarins Extra-Comfort Toning Lotion for Dry and Sensitive, Clarins Toning Lotion with Camomile for Dry and Normal Skin and Clarins Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner.

And I really wanted to try the brand’s cleansers: Water Comfort One-Step Cleanser with Peach Essential Water and One-Step Facial Cleanser with Orange Extract.¬†

I plan using them in the mornings when I am often in a rush, so picked up the first one this time and will get the other one next time. I will report back later but have big hopes for this product!

Beauty Purchases Clarinas and Korres

I also wanted to buy a new soap so got the Korres one with milk.¬† The lady in the shop told me¬† that it’s her personal favourite from the range, so¬† hopefully it will not disappoint.

By the way, if you are looking for nice soaps, I personally really love Cowshed, those are brilliant.

Clarins Gentle Beauty Soap Review

I was never a fan of soaps in the past, as they left my skin dry and tight afterwards. As you know, old habits (or stereotypes, in this case) die hard so I was using gels and creams for body and face for a very long time.

Clarins Gentle Beauty Soap Review

But several years ago I’ve decided to give soaps another chance. And I was definitely surprised to see how things have changed since then. These days there are a lot of gentle, delicate and creamy soaps to choose from. I already wrote about some of my favourite discoveries, such as L’Occitane and Cowshed and today would like to tell you about Clarins Beauty Soap.

According to the brand it’s a “water-based certified organic bar soap for face and body which contains 99% natural ingredients”.
