Fresh this summer ? Yes with Elmiplant Aqua Breeze

You know I looove to use - in the hotter seasons, especially in the summer - very cooling, fresh products, especially my shower gels. The fresher, the better. I really can't stand very sweet scents in the hotter summer days, I need to feel clean, refreshed, ready to face the scorching heat.
Elmiplant is a mind reader for me : it has recently lanched a new shower gel in the Senses Touch range : Elmiplant Aqua Breeze (I loove the name, it makes me think of the cooling, fresh sensation you have after you come out of the sea water and the breeze gently blows onto your moist skin, the golden sands, the blue sky, the clear water.. oh bliss!).

MustaeV Skinny Tint foundation - first impressions

I've heard for the first time about MustaeV from Tavia ( She has raved and raved about them. She loves all their products, she cannot find them any flaws. I was intrigued. Really? A brand whose entire range of products is perfect. Good quality. Decent prices. Great customer service. Attention to details. Great communication with beauty bloggers. Hmm.. something is fishy .. The final straw was one of her posts.

A little chat about Make-up Removal and Face Cleansing part 2

I talked about the importance of properly cleansing the skin in the previous post, now it's time to see what types of make-up removers are there. The most important thing you should know, is that you must choose the make-up removers according to your skin type and needs. Every make-up remover should clearly state the type of skin is designed towards. In addition to this, the strength of the make-up removers depends on the type of make-up products you use and their number.

A little chat about Make-up Removal and Face Cleansing

One of the most important step in our daily face routine, besides putting on SPF, is the cleansing routine. It is a MUST, every day, in the evening and in the morning, no matter if you had any make-up on or not!

Not removing make-up means congested skin and clogged pores which will lead to breakouts, puffiness around the eyes and fine lines – in short, a proper cleansing makes your skin look younger and healthier for longer!

My lovely ladies I will be out of town again this weekend.
I will be back with a new post on Monday.
Have a great weekend!

Need extra sun protection ? Ivatherm SUNLIGHT Hydrating face cream SPF50+ to the resque!

It's now officialy summer! The sun is shining at its hottest! As I've told you before in a previous post the-sun-friend-or-foe the sun is our friend but also our enemy. We must protect our skin now better than before; the sun's rays are very powerful and harming than they were in our grandparents' times.
And to dispell a wrong myth I've encountered these days, the olive oil or any other oils DO NOT PROTECT THE SKIN FROM THE UVA/UVB RAYS!!! We should use the specialized products created with the latest technologies for this purpose only! There is a great variety of products at any price range! All beauty brands have at least one sun protection product in their portofolio!
One of the brands that has come to our help is Ivatherm. Recently it has lanched a new product meant to offer a full 360 degrees protection from UVA, UVB and IR (even in water) for all types sensitive skin. SUNLIGHT SPF50+ protects the cell DNA, has anti-inflamatory, immune-transforming properties and also prevents the early aging process of the skin.

What better time than now to find out more about them and their products and more importantly where to find them ?

Pandora Summer 2015 collection wishlist

As you already know, I have been out of town this weekend. And I missed both the blog and you, my lovely readers! As a teacher we celebrate every end of May the senior graduation; for several years now we have been going to the Bulgarian seaside. This year we have stayed at Golden Sands resort. Our hotel was very close to the sea so we had gorgeous panoramas all the time.
the view from our hotel
I forgot how much I missed the sea! I love the sea with its clear, shining water, its warm, golden sands, its caressing, salty breeze and its smiling sun! I think you have guessed by now that my favourite season is summer .. Anyway I rambled too much! This weekend also reminded me that the newest Pandora Summer 2015 collection is available in stores !
