Today we’re having the biggest heat wave of the year so far, and in between spraying myself all over with a fridge-cooled rose hydrolate, I’ll present my first impressions of this month’s Love Lula Beauty Box, which is perfectly themed for the hot Summer weather. June Beauty Box contains a mixture of hair care, makeup and skin care products, with 3 full sized ones, one travel sized one and one sample. The total value of the Beauty Box is £48; the actual cost for a monthly Beauty Box when you subscribe? Barely worth mentioning, though you will find all the needed info at the end of this month’s first impressions of all the goodies from June’s Beauty Box. So, what’s […]

The last one in this month’s routine series is my makeup routine; it’s been a long time since I posted my makeup routine, and since I’m on a roll this month with my routines, I’ll add another one – the Summer edition one. As it’s very hot here (up to 34 degrees already!), I quickly switched to Summer makeup, along with my morning and evening skincare routines: just a little bit color here and there, just a bit of something to even out my skin tone. Depending on the occasion, I switch between which colors and color combination I use, but everything is minimalist and subtle. This is how I approach makeup: to emphasize what’s already great and to temporarily […]

Benecos Glamour Mascara gives a rich finish look, with volume and length on the lashes, while Benecos Translucent Powder gives a silky, quick and no-fuss finish look, and does not set in fine lines – both for a very low price point.  I’ve been using the German green beauty brand Benecos for many years now – they offer good to great quality, especially, makeup products at a very reasonable, affordable price point: Benecos won’t burn a deep hole in your wallet, yet you’ll still get green makeup products that – work. The two products I’ll review for you today are Benecos Glamour Mascara and Benecos Translucent Powder. As I’ve tried several of the Benecos mascaras in the past, I pretty much […]

Another one from much requested skincare routines – this time around, I will share with you my evening skincare routine. Since there was very little Spring and we jumped from a cold, almost late Autumn weather into a hot and sunny Summer, it seems in a day, I had to quickly change and adapt both my morning and evening skincare routine, and, of course, my makeup routine – this one follows next week. With hot Summer times, the biggest change in my skincare routine is using less (but still some) oils and oil-based skincare products, switching them for light skincare products, mainly in a form of light serums and moisturisers. My already abundant use of hydrolates only intensifies. In general, […]

My Evening Skincare Routine #1

Jane Scrivner Intense De-Stress Mask contains the ingredients to nourish, hydrate, calm and plump the skin for a radiant and smooth skin, such as argan, jojoba, rosehip oil, while also providing a detoxing session with kaolin clay, making it suitable for a morning and evening skincare routine.  I’ve been testing and using a few Jane Scrivner products in the past few months; one of them being the Intense De-Stress Mask. What peaked my interest with this mask is the ingredients, of course, which make for a mix of a hydrating mask suitable for oily and congested skin due to ingredients such as witch hazel and kaolin clay. Kaolin clay makes the texture a bit more “glued” together, and with one ingredient […]
