Surprise, surprise, I have a new Lush favorite! You already know that I prefer serums over thick creams, so I was eager to try out the Enchanted Eye Cream (the Slovenian Lush website). My sister’s been using it all the time for around two years (and I loved it when I was at her place!). When I realised the skin around my eyes was very dry at the beginning of winter, I decided to buy it in a matter of microseconds during the sales in January. The Enchanted Eye Cream is a very gentle and fresh eye cream with lavender honey water, almond and jojoba oil. I love using it in the morning before I apply my daily cream and makeup, or in the evening before I go to bed. My skin is much softer and even concealer and foundation also look much better now. The only downside I can find is the pump – it’s impossible to get a small amount of the product out of the bottle (but I still make it work). So, if you’re looking for a very light-weight and moisturizing eye cream, this might just be it!
Last week, I broke off my 10-year tradition of only wearing bags with this cute backpack from French Connection! My shoulders are in such a pain when I’m in the city for the whole day that I decided to see what the backpacks of today have to offer. I scrolled the entire Asosbackpack section and this cute black faux-leather backpack caught most of my attention. It’s on the smaller side, but large enough to fit an A4 folder. Its zipper on top also reminds me of a bag, this is no way a typical backpack, I believe! And there’s plenty of space and small sections to save a bus ticket, mobile phone or a few make up items (there will be at least 5 lipstick gathered in no time!). I think this backpack comes in several shades, but black was probably the best decision in terms of combining it with my wardrobe, at least the early stages of my backpack use!
I can finally add a new micellar water to my the-micellar-waters-I-already-tested list! I really thought that the Garnier one would me my favorite until the end of my lifetime – especially after my post comparing five micellar waters, but I was wrong. A few months ago, I decided to give the Corine de Farme Purity Micellar Water a go, especially because 97% of its ingredients are from natural origin. It is also paraben-, colorant-free and hypoallergenic and also suitable for dry or sensitive skin.
This micellar water removes my make up like no other product. It is gentle to the skin, but at the same time very efficient. It also cleanses the eye makeup nicely, but it sometimes slightly irritates my eyes (actually nothing crazy, really). The reason why I’m pointing this out is because the label says it is ophthalmologically tested and I would assume it to be completely neutral to the eyes. But at the same time, products have to be somehow intense to remove all that mascara and eyeliners, so there is probably no way of escaping it. I even tried eye removers that were much much more irritable than this Purity Micellar Water, so I’m not complaining. There is no sticky layer left on my face after using it, which I obviously like. Another small thing that bothers me is the pump, it’s impossible to get a small amount of the water out and it sometimes just spurts out without control. But I still love using it because it is so so efficient!
You get 500 ml of the micellar water for around € 10 in Slovenian stores, a real bargain if you ask me. I’m really looking forward to trying more of the Corine de Farme products, they haven’t disappointed me so far!
