Gerovital H3 Evolution Antiperspirant Deodorants with Hyaluronic Acid - review

In a hot summer like this I take out of the stash all the weapons against perspiration. And I use many more deodorants and antiperspirants than usual. I have tried this summer the newly launched Gerovital H3 Evolution Antiperspirant Deodorants with Hyaluronic Acid - a first in Romania !
They were created to eficiently protect against perspiration for a long time but also to provide the right hydration for the sensitive skin of the armpits. The hyaluronic acid is known for its intensively hydrating effect through its two-fold action: by restoring the water reserves of skin and by reducing the transepidermal loss of water.
There are three types of antiperspirants for all tastes : Diamond Woman , Sapphire Woman and Pearl Woman. For every feminine, active and elegant women out there !

Sensual, thick, long lashes ? Yes with Chic Lashes eyelash extensions

I have to admit that, when the trend of wearing eyelash extensions started, I was intrigued. I thought it was a very expensive procedure that was not worth it. I mean I could get long, thick lashes with a good mascara at a lower price overall. I mean it was not a must for me. I could live very well without it. Well I was wrong. When I received the proposition to try it, I was curious to finally see what all the fuss was about! So in a grey, rainy, cold day of summer I made my way towards the centre where Chic Lashes' location was.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Long Lasting Lipstick in Bois de Rose Creme - review

I love lipsticks. I prefer to wear them much more than lip glosses. I tend to eat the lip products I have on, so the lipstick lasts longer on me. I like light, creamy, hydrating formulas that are not sticky on the lips. I like both neutral and bold colours in my lipsticks but lately my lipstick collection has more bold colours than neutrals. One of the neutral lipsticks I love to wear is the subject of this post : Estee Lauder  Pure Color Long Lasting Lipstick in Bois de Rose Creme.

I love to explore the shops, to do window shopping, to see the latest collections and releases.

You know I love to travel, to see new places, to meet new people and to experience different cultures.
