Clarins Double Serum: the game changer

Do you know those products that promise radical and almost immediate changes in your skin? I never trust them. So many disappointments… That’s why the first time I applied the Clarins double serum I was shocked. But I waited. Trust issues. However, after five weeks using this multi-award winning serum twice a day I can finally confirm it: this product really changes your skin. I’m even a little bit afraid of how much I love it because I know that from now on I won’t be able to live without it (#firstworldproblems, I know). And I can tell you that because last weekend, while we were in Copenhagen, I didn’t take it with me and oh, I’ve suffered. Suddenly my moisturizer didn’t seem enough. This serum makes my skin feel absolutely nourished. It doesn’t eliminate wrinkles or pores completely (it’s not surgery!) but the skin looks brighter, glowy… alive! If you are in your twenties, don’t even think about it. Your skin is fine. Don’t worry. In ten years you’ll miss how firm, juicy and fresh you …

New in: Clarins-aholic

My mother knows me well, that’s why she gave me these amazing new make up products from Clarins in my birthday. To be honest, I’ve just tested the Eclat Minute Embellisseur Lèvres and I couldn’t love it more. You can use it as a primer before you apply your lipstick or just by itself. I prefer the latter. The shade my mother got me was apricot shimmer and it’s just the perfect lip colour for a smoky eye look. It gaves that juicy texture that combines beautifully with a dark matte eye.  I’m looking forward to trying the Be Long mascara, which I’m sure it will take my eyelashes to another level. And now that the party season is around the corner, this palette is going to complement my most festive looks. Since my eyes are boring brown, these violet shades will add a little bit of sparkle, don’t you think? Oh, and by the way, now that I’ve had a look at Clarins’ website, I need this desperately! You can check my Clarins-mania here :) PS: …

Soin remodelant ventre – taille, Clarins

We try to work out, we really do. For a short period of time we even went running a couple of days every week. But… oh well! We love our sofa, enjoying cups of coffee in Winter and fresh drinks al fresco in Summer… and we are always really lazy busy when it comes to visit the gym. So when the weather gets nicer and we don’t have our beloved coats to cover us we go more Clarins-aholic than ever and try all their firming, contouring and slimming products. Now we have all our hopes pinned on this redefining body treatment for abdomen and waist. We’ll let you know!! Do you like this kind of measures? I’m sure you all work out like crazy all year… right? ;)

Clarins BB cream

I love Clarins. We have a long love story and I just can’t get enough of it. So I need to try their new BB cream. I’m sure it’s wonderful! If they say it revitalizes, protects and evens skin tone, then I’m sure it really does. Have you tried it? I don’t like to apply foundation everyday, so BB creams are really my first option every morning. After cleaning, toning and mousturising my face, always with my  Clarins arsenal, of course. :)

Clarins

Hi everyone! Sorry for the lack of posts but we’ve been travelling and working late. Now we’re in Spain enjoying some quality time with family and friends. Good times! Some weeks ago I told you that we were huge Clarins fans so I though I might as well show you which products we use. Maybe you can get some last minute Christmas present ideas or use this information to pamper yourself a little bit during the holidays.

My favourite cleansers or how to erase your day from your face

Long time no see? Well, I’m sure you’re thinking that after the last avocado toast post there was nothing more to add to this blog. Well, even though #avotoastsarelife, there are other reasons. Have you ever tried to do your laundry but on the way to the washing machine a sock falls out and then you bent down to gather the sock and then a bra falls out as well and then you try to pick it from the floor and another sock falls out and when you finally have everything in your hands and you try to continue your way to the washing machine because you just want to do your laundry and get on with your life you hit your head with a piece of furniture and that hurts so much that you inevitably touch your head and therefore the perfect pile of dirty laundry collapses and all the socks fall out all over the floor? Well, that has been our life lately. So between work, appartment search, family issues and lots of …

Festive makeup

After a whole day packing, which we both hate, we are about to head home for Christmas. That means we are going to meet our families and friends which we haven’t seen for what it feels like ages. That also means that we will be going out more than usual, which isn’t difficult because we usually go to bed at 10pm. And for me, that also means that I have more opportunities to wear makeup. Yay! You already know that I love makeup so any occasion to rock a red lip is welcome… but only if I can be in my bed by 10pm. So Christmas is perfect because you basically can wear the most insane red lip all day every day without anyone saying: uuuhhh, red lips… what are you celebrating? To which I usually answer: Life, you moron! But during the holidays if anyone remarks that I’m wearing red lipstick (in case I forgot the ten minutes I spent perfecting my lip liner, I guess) I can answer: Christmas! (You moron!) So today …

Summer makeup

Two months ago we spent a few days in Ibiza. In addition to lots of tips for our slow-paced weekend guide to Ibiza, we brought a nice tan with us. Miraculously we still have a lovely sunkissed tone in our skin and that’s why my only purpose in life since then has been keeping and enhancing that “oh, I’m just back from Ibiza” glow. For that, I’ve been skipping foundation and using these ten products (plus lots of moisturizer and lots of water, because we all know that drinking lots of water is the secret to eternal youth, good health and Victoria Secret’s body). Becca First Light Priming Filter Instant Complexion Refresh: this primer gives you a glowy base for your foundation but if you have a light tan, the one that gives you small cute freckles, you can use it as a your skin, but better lotion. Clarins Instant Concealer: a little bit goes a long way, so tiny amount of this concealer will cover your  dark circles (because you are just back from the …

Over 30 makeup tips

I’m a makeup addict, everyone that knows me knows that. My mum always says that whenever I enter a drugstore, beauty department or duty free I’m like a child in a toy store. And it’s absolutely true. My love for makeup started when I was in highschool. I used to play with eye liner and bright coloured eyeshadows. Oh the 90s… Since then my makeup routine has changed a lot. Now I can do my makeup in five minutes, I know what suits me and, inevitably, I have adapted the products I use and the way I apply them to my age. Because years pass, people, and my face shows that. I have this little ritual every morning: I spend ten minutes doing my makeup. It sets my mood for the day, it relaxes me and while I’m blending, tapping and blending a little bit more, I have time to think about what I have to do at the office, I go over the grocery list and sometimes, if I’m lucky, I even stop thinking. …

Beauty basics

Even though we love discovering new beauty products, there are a bunch of items that we’ve been using for years. We are extremely loyal to them and while we love watching You Tube videos or Instagram mini-tutorials about fascinating, new beauty launches, the truth is that we always go back to our basics. In fact, we bet that every woman has her beauty basics, those no one talks about, those products that aren’t fancy but give her that special scent that identifies her, that beautiful shine in her hair or the softness of her skin. Those little things that make us… us. In my case, that’s the Irresistibly Smooth Nivea body lotion, the light blue one as I always call it. It has changed its name and packing during the last few years but the lotions is always the same: lighter than the original Nivea body lotion and softer, with a warmer scent. In fact, that’s the scent most people identifies me with. It’s great for dry skin and its non greasy formula makes it fantastic …
