Alteya Organics Instant Detox Face Mask Rose Jasminium

Alteya Organics was born in 1999 as an family-own company and ever since is growing and caring for roses as a family tradition for more than a century.

I discovered Alteya Organics few months ago while I was trying to build up a list of niche, cruelty free and organic skincare brands. Before I ventured to buy and try some of their products I wanted to know more about this skincare brand/company, so I looked them up only to find out delightful and amazing things about them. 

Sustainable, eco, cruelty free, organic, vegan, gluten free products made with love, passion and dedication. 

Alteya Organics is growing and harvesting roses and lavender in the heart of Bulgaria, right in the famous Bulgarian Rose Valley. They also distill premium and organic rose flowers and lavender essential oils using a very special low pressure steam- distillation method that marries 400 years of tradition with science. As a result they are able to produce superior, organic skin and body products designed to improve skin's resistance to environmental factors and slow down the skin ageing process.

Apparently their skincare is so amazing that they have received several awards over the past years. At the beginning on 2020 they have received both Silver and Bronze at the Green Beauty Awards. Alteya Organics has been also the winner of  Deliciously Living Awards both in 2015 and 2019. They also got an European award for Sustainable Beauty and Best European Organic Beauty Product in 2017. These nominations and awards are just a few to mention, the list is actually pretty long and impressive.

The Ultimate List Of Summer Must Have Beauty Essentials

For me summer is all about light and calming moisturizers, hydrating serums and sun protection, fresh and soothing face/body mists for an instant beauty boost and just a touch of glowy makeup.

SUN SCREEN should definitely be at the top of everyone's must have beauty essential list, and not just during summer but all year around. 

My favorite SPF: Lancaster Sun Beauty Sublime Tan 30+ and La-Roche Posay Anthelios Fluid 50+

Pixi Beauty Summer Makeup Look & Products

Last week I received from Pixi Beauty some new makeup products, perfect to help me get that effortless summer beautiful glow and radiance on. 

They have the most amazing, pretty, affordable and multi-functional makeup products. I absolutely love them. Their eye shadows are always really creamy and pigmented and their lip products (mate lipstick and lips glosses) come in lots of  vibrant colors from nudes to pinks to striking sensual red shades. For summer I adore their new Liplift Max Glosses, so much shine and never that sticky feeling.

Summer Glow Palette in Sheer Sunshine, a very beautiful multi-functional palette of silky natural mineral powders from matte to glowing. The perfect natural tones to bring out your sun kissed glow all year around. 

Paraben free, not tested on animals, rich in skin conditioning emollients to smooth and hydrate and vitamin E to protect and nourish. 

The bronze shades can be used on cheeks, bridge of the nose, forehead, chin and anywhere you would normally tan. 

The sparkly shades can be used to highlight your cheekbones, browbone, corner of your eyes and anywhere you want to add a sheer glow.

Pixi Endless Shade Stick, a liner and eye shadow, 2 in 1.Smudge proof, very fun and easy to use.

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

Pixi Beauty Hydrating Milky Collection

For the past 2 weeks I have been using the new Pixi Beauty skincare treats from the Hydrating Milky Collection. Before Pixi sent me these amazing products as a PR gift I was already using and loving the  Hydrating Milky Tonic, most calming and soothing tonic I ever had.

Pixi Hydrating Milky Collection has 6 products, to remove, cleanse and peel but also to tone, treat, moisturize and protect.This Hydrating Milky Collection  is absolutely 100% vegan and delivers a  daily boost of soothing and calming hydration to your skin. The products were packed in super cute milk boxes and they are charged with lots of skin -loving benefits. All products from this hydrating milky collection are cruelty free and suitable for all skin types because even oily skin can be dehydrated and in need of a moisture boost.  Hydrating Milky Makeup Remover for eyes, lips and/or face. This is a bi-phase makeup remover milk that effectively removes waterproof and long -wearing makeup and it can be used as a first step in your double -cleanse routine. This product is enriched with coconut  fruit extract to nourish, oat milk to calm and soothe skin and probiotics to balance. Lovely product that smells absolutely amazing.

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.

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.
