Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Pure Luxury Cleansing Butter Review

I love me a good balm cleanser, and this one is pretty cool. 24k Gold Pure Luxury Cleansing Butter may be the most beautiful cleanser I’ve ever used.

It is all about the gold: gold packaging and the gold coloured cleanser which is apparently infused with pure 24K gold, and it sparkles. Just take a look at it!

This is your typical balm cleanser which is  a solid-to-oil texture, it is a self-care ritual using this in the evenings, massaging the face and relaxing.  It smells nice but not too strong or overwhelming.  I know that a lot of people love their skincare to be fragrance free but I would never wan that.  For me it is not only about the formula and performance but also about the textures, scents and the sensations. As always, I have to say that I remove eye makeup separately but I did try it just for this review and it worked great.

Peter Thomas Roth is a fantastic range and this is not an exception, the cleansing butter is such a pleasure to use, as I’ve already said, and it leaves the skin so soft and

Favourite Beauty Products of 2018

Since I already posted about my favourite makeup products of 2018, it is time for beauty!

Face

I am in my (early) 30s, and I have very dry skin which requires a lot of attention so I take my skincare seriously.  I am aware that all of the products I am going to mention are high end but every single one works incredible for my skin, and  none was a press sample, which proves that I do have a very high opinion about them and am ready to invest.

SARAH CHAPMAN Ultimate Cleanse (from Net A Porter, Cult Beauty and  Space NK).

I do not care for celebrities, unless it is Victoria Beckham, and very few other  ones in which case, I pay very close attention to her/their beauty recommendations. In fact,  someone I know who works for a big beauty brand told me that the Beckhams are among very few celebs who offer to pay for the samples they are sent. I’ve had very high expectations for this cleanser (and yes, partly because Mrs. B loves it), and it did not disappoint. Everything about the Ultimate Cleanse is pure luxury: from the packaging to the formula. Rich texture makes it easy to massage in, you get that at-home-spa feeling. And the result are fab! Clean and glowing skin without any tightness.  There is only one problem, now I want everything from the brand.

Anne Semonin Precious Serum  (from Harrods and  Net a Porter).

This is  very pricey product but after reading the most glorious reviews ( and waiting when there was a sale) I had to get it. And, seriously, this serum is

Clarins Cleansers Round Up

The other day I was  going through my drafts for Makeup4all, and I was shocked that some of them are from 2009…And the one that caught my attention was this round-up of Clarins cleansers (you can read more details by clicking the “review” links).

Back in 2014 I have posted part I of toners suitable for my skin type (dry and sensitive), and promised to share about the cleansers. So it is better late than never, right?

 Pure Melt Cleansing Gel (review)

This is probably my favourite cleanser from Clarins, it smalls amazing, works great for  massaging the face and turns into milk after you mix it with water.

Clarins Santal Face Treatment Oil Review

Autumn/Winter is the time to  introduce oils in your skincare regimen, if for some reason you are not using any yet. This is why today I want to share about one of my favourite oils of all time. And I was actually surprised to to see that I never wrote a feature about Clarins Santal Face Treatment Oil.

I have used up my current bottle, so it seems like a perfect  time to share.

Caudalie Vinosource Overnight Recovery Oil Review

I’ve promised to be better with my skincare reviews, so here is another one. I’ve just used the very last drop of Caudalie  Vinosource Overnight Recovery Oil  recently so here is my impression.

First of all, I really loved the glass packaging and the beautiful colour & design, it looks like a high-end  product with a very good price tag, compared to similar products, £26 from from Feel Unique and  $52 from Sephora for 30 ml. It also comes with a great dropper which allows you to us all the product, without any waste.

The other thing which I absolutely adore is the rose scent. Regular readers know that I am a die-hard fan. But don’t worry, it is not too overpowering or overwhelming.

Caudalie Vinosource Overnight Recovery Oil ReviewAs for the oil itself it has a very good list of the ingredients, and I was hoping for a miracle-in-a-bottle kind of product since it is marketed for very dry skin.

Although I did like it, I found that it
