The minimal skincare routine in these hot Summer days that I adhere to in the morning follows in the evening as well. Given I’m wearing sunscreen, a double cleansing is often a must, along with light but thorough hydration. My Evening Skincare Routine: Cleansing On the days I wear sunscreen, a double cleansing is a must. I try to combine it with first using a lighter Kathleen Cleansing Lotion, though I am mostly saving this gentle cleanser for my morning skincare routine, or a bit thicker but still creamy Alteya Organics Gentle Cleanser. For the second cleanse, I use Alteya Organics Facial Cleanser & Wash in Vanilla & Geranium: it gently cleanses and removes any of the remaining impurities. It’s also very […]

Ere Perez Olive Oil Lipsticks are luxurious, highly pigmented lipsticks, which nourish and hydrate the lips. It seems no matter which Ere Perez product I try, I am always impressed with it; I’ve had the pleasure of using many Ere Perez makeup products, and they’re all performing at a high level, whether it’s their water foundation, carrot color pots, mascara, eye shadows… Of course, I have to mention their incredible water serum as well, which I’ve been using all Summer long. When Ere Perez launched their olive oil lipsticks, so many of them immediately landed on my wishlist and three of them – in my makeup bag. And what a beautiful lipsticks they are, indeed! With a great selection of […]

The weather is still beautiful – sunny and hot, and accordingly, my morning skincare routine is minimal and based on as much hydration as possible, mostly in a form of water-based serums. And liters of hydrolates, of course. My Morning Skincare Routine: Cleansing With very hot weather, even if my evening skincare routine consists of few and light, but above all, moisturizing products, my skin feels the need for a gentle cleanser in the morning. Too much cleansing can cause an oily skin to produce more oil by drying it up, but not cleansing in the morning during hot weather can cause breakouts – a bit of a conundrum, wouldn’t you agree? So, a gentle and light cleanser, preferably non-oily […]

Alteya Organics Rose Otto Face Sunscreen SPF25 is a safe, non-nano, anti-aging sunscreen that provides broad-spectrum sun protection and supports skin’s moisture balance. Before I embark on my review of Alteya Organics Rose Otto Face Sunscreen SPF25, allow me a bit of a pondering: why would anyone still use conventional products, when… How lucky are we, who use natural organic beauty products? We get a high quality products (regardless of the price) consisting of natural ingredients, which not only do not harm us, or provide only immediate appearance that they do something visible – they are actually skin-beneficial in the long run. We can now choose a natural foundation, which is actually a high quality cream/serum, containing natural ingredients, but […]

What I’ve been up to? The beautiful, sunny and very hot weather – it was time to take a few weeks off. To see places, to do stuff and – to do nothing. Feeling and maybe even being busy is not the same as being productive, and when you’re tired and had already accomplished much of what you’ve set out to do, it’s easy to take the time off. And everyone needs to unplug, to drift away, relax. This past few weeks, I’ve been doing quite a lot of reading and painting, and embarking on some other creative endeavors. It’s good for the mind and it’s good for the soul. Writing, another technique of introspection, is also important for me, […]
