In an older post Makeup routine, I wrote only good things about LaRoche-Posay’s Tolériane correcteur de teint fluide, a product I’ve been using for over 4 years.
This time, I wanted to give a shot to their ‘lightest’ version, Tolériane fond de teint crème d’eau hydratante. Like the previous product, this one is also for sensitive skin but the main difference, also why I switched from their teint fluide, lies in coverage.
The first one provides non-cakey high-coverage which is perfect during winter, but now that warmer days are coming, I needed something with moderate coverage for a more natural look, and this water-cream is as good as I was hoping it would be.

My experience with pressed powders from British brand Rimmel London is quite positive. For a while, I banned all kind of powders from my makeup routine, because of my dry skin and now I am ready again to start using them as my skin tends to shine these days.
My other powder from the brand is the ‘natural bronzer’ so I said why not try their ‘stay matte’ version, and guess what, it does the trick!

(Stay matte long lasting pressed powder costs around 4 euros in Slovenia)

After I’ve tried L’Oréal Revitalift Filler Renew cream, and after I’ve been completely blown away with the results, the obvious next step was to try something from their night version.
This Nutri-Gold Night cream smells really good and is very moisturizing, but unlike the Revitalift filler Renew, it is more greasy and doesn’t absorb that quickly.

HOW TO EXFOLIATE YOUR SKIN WITHOUT OVERDOING IT

dsc_0703

If you have read my previous beauty posts, you already know that I have been dealing with all kind of skin problems since I was 14. So I am basically always on a hunt for the best beauty products and tools that will keep my skin healthy and clean.
Through the years, I have always been told by professionals not to use exfoliating gels which apparently do more damage than good to problematic skins. Still, I had to try myself to be convinced and eventually I have come to realize that they were not lying. ^^ But when I came across this little packet at the store, I said to myself, why not!

For the last 3-4 weeks I have been using it together with the cleansing gel from Avène (which is one of my favorite by the way) three times a week and the result is impressive! Love that it is a very gentle exfoliating tool, that leaves my skin smooth and fresh.

After the exfoliation comes moisturizing, and my go-to day cream is the Q10 plus anti wrinkle cream by Nivea with SPF 15.

Thanks for visiting my blog guys,
have a nice Friday and weekend!
