The Body Shop Rose Dewy Glow Face Mist

I really like to spray a fine mist of fresh floral water over my makeup because it gives such a nice glow and cuts off that powdery look. Rose Dewy Glow Face Mist is my second face mist from The Body Shop, I also had the one with Aloe Vera, but this one with rose is much more delightful and soothing.

 The Body Shop Rose Dewy Glow Face Mist is floral but also quite fruity. Blended with a delicious raspberry essence, cherry water from France, Community Trade British rose essence and Community Trade aloe vera from Mexico. Makeup friendly, with reflective particles, this face mist gives your skin a dewy, illuminated glow. Suitable for all skin types, amazing for dull skin lacking glow. Most hydrating rose face mist I ever had!

Isle Of Paradise Medium Self Tanning Drops

The first thing I wanna say about ISLE OF PARADISE Self Tanning Drops is that this stuff is amazing. I  have been hunting for this product for half a year because it was always sold out. I finally found it online and got a bottle of it and now I am just sorry I did not get two because it is again out of stock everywhere.
I discovered this brilliant product because of a few samples I got at Douglas. I don't think I would have bought it without having first the samples to try. I had bought so many disappointing self tanning products that I simply gave up on the fake tanning habit. Was just expensive and frustrating.

ISLE OF PARADISE makes self tanning really easy.You are in control of your tan and your glow by using few drops of product mixed in with your favorite oil, serum, moisturizer and even foundation. I haven't tried using it with foundation yet but I used it with oils, serums, creams, lotions and it works absolutely amazing. These muti-tasking and color corrective liquid drops are suitable to use both on face and body and the more drops you add the deeper your tan will be. All you have to do is to integrate some self tanning drops into your existing skincare regime and you will get a really lovely, natural tan and glow.
ISLE OF PARADISE Self Tanning Drops formula is made with coconut, chia seeds and avocado oil for a nice ultra hydrating feeling.

Estee Lauder Futurist Hydra Rescue Moisturizing Makeup Foundation SPF 45

Estee Lauder has a new foundation, Futurist Hydra Rescue Moisturizing Makeup SPF 45 and I was really excited to try it. I love their foundations, especially Double Wear Stay-In-Place, I been using that for so many years and it never disappointed me. 

Futurist Hydra Rescue Moisturizing Makeup combines the beauty of a modern and innovative foundation with the amazing benefits of serious skincare and we all know that Estee Lauder makes some really iconic skincare. Coverage and care sounds perfect to me and it was exactly what I was looking for, a skin loving makeup! 

Because my skin looks much better than years ago I am using very little foundation and I went from medium- high coverage foundations to barely there and almost sheer coverage because I am all about the natural glow, skin and radiance now that I am not so young anymore :D

Estee Lauder Futurist Hydra Rescue Moisturizing foundation has a medium to full coverage, but feels very different than any other similar foundations. I thought it will be more creamy and heavy but the formula is really liquid and very light, I wanna say breathable. 
Apparently this foundation formula is infused with Ion charged water, chia seed extract and probiotics.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in Rebellious Rose

I have been deeply in love with Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick lately, if not quite obsessed. These past 2 months I have been wearing a lot more creamy lipstick and less matte and I rediscover again the luxurious feeling of having plump hydrated lips in nude romantic and feminine shades.

I don't often wear the same lip color every day for a week but if I do is probably  Estee Lauder Pure Color Sculpting Lipstick in Rebellious Rose. Looks beautiful during winter when my skin is fair and my lips are not in the best condition and even more beautiful in spring and summer when my skin has a bit of tan. A lip color that match most skin tones and can be perfect to wear during day but also on special evenings and whenever you feel like it :)

Estee Lauder makes some of  the most creamy and comfortable lipsticks I ever had. I own several shades (Dominant, Envious, Tumultuos pink, Rebellious Rose ) but Rebellious Rose always had a special place in my heart and it has been my ultimate crush for years

Disciple Skincare Discovery Kit

 Have you heard of DISCIPLE skincare yet?

DISCIPLE is a London based natural wellness company for stressed-out body and mind, created by psychotherapist Charlotte Ferguson.

Anxiety, stress, and a chaotic lifestyle can cause inflammatory skin issues like adult acne, eczema, psoriazis, rosacea and premature aging. These skin conditions seem to get all worse and flare when we feel stressed.You feel stressed you break out or eczema flares (in my case). You stress about it and it all get worse and this cycle of skin conditions and stress can be very nasty and difficult to break.

Like so many other people I also deal with anxiety and stressful situations that do a number on my skin now and then. Lately I have been looking into natural ways to distress and heal my body and mind and on my research for adaptogens I found out about Disciple and decided to try it and see how it works and what delivers. I believe in a holistic approach when it comes to my overall health but also when it comes to treat my skin conditions, specially my eczema.  

I decided to buy the Discovery Disciple Kit, a day and a night oil duo for stressed out skin  and it was a really good decision.

Organic Tea And Radiant Skin Talk

This post is not about gummy bears, beauty vitamins or any other type of beauty supplements that come in a jar and are trending right now everywhere on social media.

This post is about organic tea and plant/herb infused in water and how you can bring back your natural glow and support your immunity system.

A cup of tea is a cup of peace, a hug in a cup and sometimes the best medicine!

Organic herbal tea can help you get not only a detoxified liver and a boosted lymphatic system but also the perfect skin radiance, the natural glow that comes from within you.

Having a big cup of tea every day will benefit your immunity system, your circulation,  collagen production, skin regeneration and hydration. No sugar, just sit and sip in bliss !

Tea is the superstar in the natural skincare world! You can drink it, you can rinse your hair with it, you can use it as a skin toner or in facial masks.

Adaptogen plants and how they fight, mediate and balance your stress so your skin can look healthy

You probably did not realized yet that you already implemented and used adaptogen plants (herbs, roots, mushrooms) in your life. It might be a bag of delicious organic tea, or the turmeric powder you sprinkle on your food or those small delicious goji berries you keep adding to your smoothie. Some adaptogens, like the Holy Basil (Tulsi) can be eaten as part of a meal and others can be consumed as tea, tinctures and/or supplements. So what exactly are adaptogens ?

Adaptogens are a special class of non toxic botanical substances-herbs,roots and mushrooms extract that will support the adrenal glands, allowing them to respond and fight stress in your body in a more efficient way. This special group of plants, called adaptogens are marketed as helping our body to resist stress of all kinds, whether is physical, chemical or biologic.

Adaptogens are nothing new, they have been used for centuries by Chinese and Ayurvedic healing traditions and today they have a special comeback, call it a renaissance if you want.
Adaptogens will do for your adrenal glands what exercise does for your muscles. They will tweak the hormonal production and psychological responses to stress to ensure that the body (from your mind to your immunity system to your energy levels) will function as it should!
You might wander how stress, adaptogens and the way your skin looks are connected. Well, everything is connected, the way you feel inside will reflex on the outside, in the way your skin, nails and hair will look. Just think, how many times, in stressful situations your skin flared with eczema or a nasty hormonal breakout or you started to lose hair, when apparently you "looked healthy". I am guessing every single time ?!

Stress hormones can bring havoc on your skin and on your and hair too. As a result stress can lead to anything from breakouts, dark circles, irritation and inflammation, redness, hair loss, worsening psoriasis and eczema.

Romantic And Elegant Glam Makeup Look

My absolute favorite makeup is the one that makes me look feminine, fresh, confident and of course glam. This time I decided to go for something that doesn't focus on red lipstick nor on colorful eye shadow. This is a rather simple glow glam look, and hopefully you will like it too.

How to wear dark lipstick and still look chic and sophisticated

I always wanted to try a very dark almost black lipstick and have been always afraid that it will look ugly, strange or just unflattering. I have some very deep dark burgundy matte liquid lipsticks that look almost black when they dry, I really love them and they can really look amazing on some people.

So, happy to say that I think I finally managed to pull of a dark lipstick, what do you think?

Like with any other lipstick you just need to find the one that suits your skin tone.
