Product review: Patchouli Lavender Vanilla hand cream from Sabon

Sabon, bath-and body line was born in 1997 in Israel with its handmade lavender soap. The line has an air of luxury, thanks to its pretty vintage golden packaging.  All the soaps, candles, and pretty ceramics are handmade. The rest of the products are not.

Today I want to introduce you to a great luxurious hand cream from Sabon:
Patchouli Lavender Vanilla hand cream. A great unisex lotion, with a light and non greasy texture makes dry, chapped hands inexcusable. 


Gently enriched with essential oils, silicone, vitamin E and C, this yummy experience will leave your hands, nails and cuticles feeling fresh and smooth and looking significantly younger.
 When you are a visagiste or a make-up artist, your hands need to be extra soft at touch, clean and nice smelling. Nobody will enjoy a pair of smelly dry rough hands on their face.

My beauty summer essentials for face,eyes,lips and nails


         The first rule of warm-weather makeup : Don't wear too much. After all, who wants a face full of makeup in the heat?...not me, I love a dewy makeup to complement my sun-kissed skin.
Here is a list of my beauty summer essentials for face, lips and nails. 

    Beauty summer essentials for face:


Olaz (Olay) Total Effects day cream, SPF15, my everyday moisturizer.
Dr.Van der Hoog Natural Intensive Eye Gel with Glucan Complex, refreshing, great for sensitive dry skin around my eyes.Best thing about this gel: doesn't melt and run in my eyes! Every summer this product is a must for me.
To make skin stay smoother and shine-free longer, I apply a primer prior to foundation.         Catrice Pore Refining anti-shine base, is a long lasting oil free primer that doesn't feel heavy at all. For summer, the ideal primer should be oil-free and oil-absorbing yet nourishing and non-drying.
As with primers, an oil-free yet non-drying formula is key when choosing the perfect foundation.

Home made rosewater !

For centuries the rose has been highly valued by many cultures not only for its beauty and perfume but also for its profound healing properties on both a physical and psychological level. 


Rosewater and rose oil were used in the traditional medicines of China, India, Assyria, Egypt, Greece and Rome to cure a wide range of medical conditions.
The rosewater, used regularly as a facial wash and toner, will cleanse, soften, stimulate and hydrate the skin - a superb wrinkle reducer. Rosewater is also used as an eyewash, which helps brighten and refresh the eyes.
Rose water cleanses the skin, removing dirt, oil and other pollutants from deep inside the skin pores. Amazingly, it can be used on any skin type without causing irritation.
Rosewater is well-known for its natural healing properties as a good anti-septic, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory product.
