SKIN CARE PRODUCTS

SKIN CARE PRODUCTSAujourd’hui je vais vous présenter mes derniers coups de coeur beauté que j’utilise quotidiennement depuis presque un mois. Si vous me lisez depuis le début, vous devez déjà savoir que ma quête des meilleurs produits de beauté n’a pas de fin et dans l’article d’aujourd’hui je parlerai de ces 6 nouveaux produits qui me facilitent la vie ces derniers temps et avec lesquels je suis super satisfaite, pour dire le moins.

Today I am presenting you with my latest favorite beauty products that I have been using on a daily basis for almost a month. If you are following me since the beginning, you already know that I am constantly seeking for the best beauty products out there and in today’s article I am going to talk about 6 new products that I am utterly satisfied with since they are making my life easier lately.

SKIN CARE PRODUCTS URIAGE PRODUITS

Le gel nettoyant d’Uriage est le meilleur produit nettoyant que j’ai utilisé jusqu’à présent, vraiment. Une fois rincée, ma peau devient immédiatement douce et matifiée. C’est tout ce que je demande à un produit nettoyant. Quant à l’odeur, elle est très agréable.

The cleansing gel by Uriage is actually the best cleansing product I have ever used, for real. After I wash it off, my skin instantly becomes smooth and matified. It is all I am asking for from a cleansing gel. As for the smell, it is very gentle.

SKIN CARE PRODUCTS EAU MICELLAIRE AVENEC’est la première fois que j’utilise une eau micellaire. Jusqu’à présent, j’achetais toujours des lotions toniques et puis je me suis décidée pour cette eau micellaire d’Avène lorsque je faisais mes courses à la Parapharmacie et là, surprise totale! Ma peau est visiblement plus claire après application et matifiée aussi, donc ce produit est devenu mon petit chouchou que je vous recommande vivement si vous avez une peau à tendance grasse.

It is the first time that I use micellar water. Until now I have always used tonic lotions and this time around I went for this micellar water by Avène by which I am still completely surprised! My skin is visibly more clear and matified after applying it so it quickly became my favorite product that I am strongly advising you to try if you have an oily skin.

SKIN CARE PRODUCTS NUXE PRODUITSCette mini crème pour les mains de Nuxe est terrible! Non seulement elle sont suuuper bon mais en plus elle fait bien son boulot.
Le stick à lèvres est génial lui aussi puisqu’il hydrate mes lèvres et les répare. L’odeur est presque inexistante. Les deux produits sont déjà sur ma prochaine liste des courses.

This mini hand cream by Nuxe is terrific! Not only it smells sooo good but it is effective too.
The lip balm is great too as it moisturizes and also repairs my lips. The scent is almost nonexistent. Both of them are already on my next shopping list.

SKIN CARE PRODUCTS NEUTROGENA BALMPour mon corps il n’y a rien de mieux que le baume de Neutrogena qui pénètre rapidement et qui laisse un voile de douceur sur la peau. Il est sans effet gras et l’odeur est très douce. J’adore!

For my body there’s no better than the balm from Neutrogena that is rapidly absorbed and leaves the skin extremely smooth. There is no greasy effect and the scent is very gentle. I love it!

Wish you a beautiful weekend guys!

SKIN PRODUCTS BY HERBALIFEAujourd’hui je vais vous parler d’une gamme de produits que j’ai eu l’occasion d’essayer ces deux dernières semaines et il s’agit de SKIN par Herbalife.
Comme je l’ai évoqué précédemment dans un article également dédié aux produits de beauté, je suis constamment à la recherche de nouveaux produits qui répondraient aux besoins de ma peau capricieuse. Ayant déjà essayé et aimé la gamme NouriFusion de Herbalife il y a quelques mois, il était naturel que j’essaye les nouveaux produits qui de mon point de vue, sont meilleurs que les précédents et cela pour différentes raisons.
Tout d’abord, le gel nettoyant, la lotion tonique ainsi que la crème de jour ‘hydratant éclat’ sont plus légers et rafraîchissants, laissant la peau super nette, matifiée et unifiée. Le top du top pour les peaux à tendance grasse avec pores dilatés comme c’est mon cas.
Dès la première utilisation, ma peau était vraiment plus saine, plus douce et claire. Vous me direz que beaucoup de produits donnent le même résultat et je ne le nierai pas, par contre les produits SKIN ont quelque chose que les autres (que j’ai essayé ces 15 dernières années) n’ont pas, et c’est ce parfum léger, doux et frais qui vous donne l’impression d’être une fleur. Et Dieu sait que les produits que j’utilise au quotidien et jusqu’à deux fois par jour doivent sentir bon car l’odeur est aussi importante que la qualité du produit en ce qui me concerne, et c’est donc pour ce petit mais essentiel détail que je vous recommande d’essayer cette gamme au parfum printanier et unique. 

Pour ce qui est du masque, de la crème de nuit et crème pour les rides, je n’ai pas grand chose à dire à part qu’ils sont bons.

Today I am going to talk you about a range of products I had the occasion to try during the past two weeks, SKIN by Herbalife.
As I brought it up a few weeks ago also in a post dedicated to beauty products, I am constantly looking for new products that would work with my unpredictable skin. As I have already tried and loved the NouriFusion range also by Herbalife a few months ago, it came as natural to me to try the new one which is in my opinion better, for several reasons.
First, the cleansing gel, the toning lotion and the day cream are lighter and more refreshing, leaving the skin clean, matified and unified. There is nothing better for skins with the tendency towards oiliness with dilated pores. Upon first use, my skin was more healthy, smooth and clear. You will tell me that many products provide the same results and it’s true, however the SKIN products have something others don’t (at least those I tried during the last 15 years) and it is this light, gentle and fresh scent that makes you feel like a flower. And God knows that the products I am using on a daily basis and sometimes twice a day have to smell good since the scent is as important as the quality of the product if you ask me. And because of this small yet essential detail I warmly recommend that you try this range with its soft linen and unique scent.
As for the face mask, night and anti-wrinkles cream I don’t have much to say except that they are good.

Cheers guys!

MAKEUP ROUTINE

MAKEUP ROUTINE 1My first beauty article was written 2-3 days ago and I told myself why not complete the whole ‘beauty routine’ theme by sharing my favorite makeup products.
As you can see, my entire makeup ‘collection’ fits in one pouch. Apart from the skin products, I have a very limited amount of makeup.
The skin products I use for a while now, are just amazing. I apply la CC crème from BOURJOIS, which is great by the way, before my foundation. For daytime I use Aera Teint from VICHY as its texture is very light and non-greasy. While for a night out, I go for Toleriane teint by LA ROCHE-POSAY which offers high-coverage and lasts for ever! I have been using these products for 2 years now and I am fully satisfied with them. Go for these two foundations if like me you have a naturally greasy and quite problematic skin.
I have tried Clinique, Estée Lauder, Dior and Chanel foundations but none of them were as good as those I am using now. The above listed brands are making makeup for naturally beautiful skins so don’t go spending 40€ on Chanel foundations when you can have a great product at the pharmacy and this for less than 20€.
The L’ORÉAL BB cream isn’t bad. A bit too dry but very easy to apply. I used it during summer as it is a period of time when I rarely wear foundation. But I prefer Garnier BB creams.
Once I have applied the foundation, I use either Poudre Minérale from NUXE or GlamBronze from L’ORÉAL. The first one is almost invisible but matifying. I love it but the pot isn’t that practical so I don’t think I would buy it again. The GlamBronze is awesome! It gives my skin a certain glow but it can also be used as a highlighter too.
The ELITE brushes are excellent too!

Well, that would be all for today dear readers, wish you all a beautiful night!

SKINCARE

BEAUTY PRODUCTSAnd here comes the first beauty post since I have started the blog. As I wrote previously, I am not an expert whatsoever in makeup nor will I reveal some great tips today but I will definitely share my current favorite products and give you my opinion on them.

After using Cleanance Gel from Avène for years, I have decided to try Neutrogena products as I heard good things about this cleansing/scrubbing gel and surprisingly, it is not a bad product at all. However, it won’t be on my shopping list next time because I cannot stand the grapefruit scent anymore.
Then once a week, I use the gentle peeling (the pot with the blue product) and bio-sulfur matifying care mask both from the Swiss brand Hormeta. They are just perfect as after applying them, my skin is instantly radiant. So yes to both of them.
The astringent lotion Effeclar by La Roche-Posay is a good product too. Those lotions are not miraculous but they do make your skin cleaner, so I use it on a daily basis and sometimes twice a day.
While the 100% natural green clay paste by Argiletz Laboratoire, I only apply it once or twice a month and it helps keeping my skin smoother and without pimples. I use it since I am 15.

BEAUTY PRODUCTS 2Then the second step of my beauty routine is to moisturize my skin. I use three very different creams and a spray. I use the Silverex Exclusive cream before putting on my makeup as it dries pretty quickly. The smell is pleasant and delicate, as it should be for products used on a daily basis. The Bio Naïa cream moisturized perfectly and I apply it mostly on my eyes as I use the Aroma-Perfection by Nuxe on the rest of my face. However, I am pretty disappointed by it, first because of its sticky texture and second its smell, that is why I apply it only at night.
The silver-based spray by Silverex as well, is a great product to use without moderation. I use it several times a day and it purifies and unifies my skin.

BEAUTY PRODUCTS 3 At the end, I am pretty satisfied by those products. Some of them are excellent other are not that good, but they all keep my skin neat and unified.

That would be all for today guys!
