SKIN GOODIES

skin goodies 1During my last trip to Paris, I went on a shopping spree to the drugstore and bought some of my favorite hygiene products. Since I have tried out Uriage cleansers I cannot live without them. This time I went for this ultra large one that is easier to use thanks to its practical pump. It is soap free and extremely gentle so it is also appropriate for little kids.
The make-up remover micellar water is very refreshing and gentle too, but for now I’m using the Vichy one which I bought first. The most surprising about the Vichy cleansing micellar solution is how well it removes my eye makeup! Until now I was always nervous before removing my mascara so this little magical product has changed my beauty routine in a very positive way. There are zero irritations and no more burning or itchy eyes. It does the job quickly and efficiently.
And after I clean and re-clean my skin with the Vichy solution micellaire and the Uriage surgras liquide, I use a light moisturizing cream Eau Thermale Jonzac from LEA Nature Laboratoire that is really the best moisturizing cream I have ever had. Really! And after I used it for 2-3 days, I went back to the drugstore and bought the one for the eyes and I must admit that I’m a very satisfied customer. Furthermore, the scent of their products is heavenly.
And last but not least, the Avene Cleanance Expert cream is surprisingly very gentle and light with a really pleasant scent too. I haven’t seen big changes for now but nevertheless it’s not pungent as those types of cream usually are and works perfectly as my make-up base.

That would be all for now amigos.
Have a nice Saturday night,

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!

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!
