I’ve already stated several times that I love using face serums and mists as I feel my skin mainly needs hydration. I don’t have any wrinkles yet at this point so I don’t feel like using heavy and rich creams that would make my mixed skin even more confused than it already is. I recently added another item to my skincare routine that I already love so so much. I’m talking about the Eau Extraordinaire Fleur d’Oranger by Melvita. Don’t be scared of these French words, it just means we’re talking about an Orange Blossom Extraordinary Water!
Eau Extraordinaire Fleur d’Oranger is a pre-moisturizer in a liquid form with orange blossom water that will soften and soothe your skin. Another essential ingredient is hyaluronic acid which moisturizes the skin and improves its texture. The gel-like water sinks into the skin in a matter of seconds and leaves a very soft feeling to the touch. It works great on its own, but I usually apply a serum on top in the morning before the rest of my make up routine. And the scent, I love orange blossom and this is another product that I wouldn’t mind smelling all day long! I would certainly recommend it to anyone who already use serums or wish to add a bit of mositurizing products to their skincare routine.
Essence and Catrice released two of their new limited editions in Slovenia this week! I couldn’t be more excited as there are plenty of trendy and summery products to choose from at their drugstore stands.
Catrice is offering us two of their new gorgeous lines. You can take a peek at a rather elegant Provocatrice section where you will find a number of exciting makeup products. Options are endless, everyone can find something to their taste: subtle Eye Paletteeye shadows, a transparent Scented Powder (which I have to get my hands on!), wonderful Gradiation Blushes, Volume Lash Dust to treat your lashes with some volume, Nail Lacquers, and two Cushion Powder Lips. I got the opportunity to try out the Cushion Powder Lips lipstick in shade Raspberry Belle, a gorgeous pink powder lipstick that creates a silky matt finish. I don’t love it just because it is so radiant and looks amazing, but also because I love its cushion formula (the lipstick is actually inside the lid!)!
Catrice also released a separate nail polish line, ICONails Gel Lacquer. There are so many shades to choose from, but I had to choose the most classic and elegant red there is, It’s All About That Red. I think it goes well with any type of clothes and always looks amazing.
On the other hand, Essence brought us a completely summery collection Next Stop: SUMMER that will instantly make you feel summer is already here! Airbrush bronz & glow face and body spray, sun protect lip conditioner, colour changing lipsticksand sun glow top coat are just the products I would love to try out – I have to visit Müller very soon! There are also a dry & wet eyeshadow & eyeliner palette, matte blotting paper and some other cute items that are worth checking out.
Big thanks to Dominur for these two products and a gorgeous Essence Notebook! Essence is celebrating its 15th anniversary already, I cannot believe it as it feels like it was just yesterday that I bought my first Essence product. Keep up the good work! #15pinkyears
Today I’m sharing my favorite breakfast of this year with you: a healthy green smoothie bowl! This breakfast is so yummy and filling and will actually make you feel amazing for the rest of the day. What I usually do is blend some greens, such as kale or spinach, with a banana, some ginger and maybe a few pieces of frozen fruits. Then I toast a few tablespoons of rolled oats and coconut flakes with a teaspoon of coconut sugar to add some sweetness. When they turn golden brown, I pour my smoothie in a bowl and top it off with oats. I usually add some frozen strawberries or blueberries just to make it look a bit more special! Bon appétit :)
