New Beauty Purchases: Clarins and SachaJuan

I have finished  two of my favourite products – Lierac Diopticreme Wrinkle Repair Cream Eye Contour (review) and Moroccanoil Light Oil Treatment (review) so it was time to get a worthy replacement.

This is why I’ve picked products from the brands that I really love – Clarins and SachaJuan.

May 2013 Beauty Favourites

Can you believe that it’s almost Summer? It’s the last week of May, so it’s time for a monthly favourites feature.

And I want to start with beauty products:

May Beauty Favourites SachaJuan, 111Skin,  Clarins, Philip B

Hair

1. SachaJuan Ocean Mist

I have bought the Ocean Mist from my wish list this month and am absolutely in love with it! It gives just the right amount of texture and volume without making the hair too crispy. Now I just need to get the Shine Serum, too.

 2. Philip B Peppermint & Avocado Clarifying Shampoo

This product was also on my wish list and I am very happy with this purchase, as well. It smells absolutely divine, I am a huge fan of mint products for hair. I find that is leaves my scalp clean and “fresh” and  the hair super shiny.  I have got this in a kit and I’ve been loving all the products so far.

3. 111Skin Y Theorem Nac Y2 Facelift Repair Serum

This serum, which costs £190 was sent to me for the feature, and I was curious to see if it was worth the price. Unfortunately, for my wallet, it is absolutely fantastic. Definitely one of the best products I have ever used on my face!  I’d say that the skin looks super soft, smooth and plump afterwards.  I will definitely write about it in details in the future.

4. Clarins Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner

This is a gentle, yet effective exfoliating toner which helps to achieve a brighter and fresher complexion. I use mine two-three times per week. Review coming later.

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
