This long-awaited spring I’ve been loving …

img_9901img_0034img_0042img_9999img_9984Rejoice, warm weather is finally here! I mean, this winter was rough and the fact that I don’t need to wrap myself in a ton of clothes and a huge scarf is a huge success. I’m celebrating the beginning of the best part of the year with colorful, glowy looks and floral scents. Let’s take a look!

As I adore lightweight creams and serums, the Vichy Normaderm Anti Age is a perfect choice for my skin at the moment. Vitamin C, salicylic and glycolic acid are efficient against the first signs of ageing, blemishes and tired complexion. This treatment is perfect as it sinks into the skin in a matter of seconds and works great as a simple prep before applying foundation. I’ve also been loving the Detox Eye Roller by First Aid Beauty, a wonderful serum that is massaged into the delicate under-eye area using a cooling roller ball. When I saw that caffeine is just one of its many wonderful ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid and peptides, I was sold! I cannot say that it reduces wrinkles, but I love the feeling it creates and a little massage here and there isn’t a bad thing, too. The third skincare item is the Herbio AHA Fruit Mask, a lovely face mask that’s been on my favorites list for months. There are times when I use it a lot and then slowly forget about it, but it truly is a very nice product. My skin is so plump and glowy after use and I love that it doesn’t dry my skin at all.

As for makeup, colorful eyes are my favorite pick most of the time. I cannot emphasize enough how much I adore the Makeup Revolution eye shadow palettes! They offer such a wide range of shades, plus they are insanely affordable for what you get. My two faves at the moment are the Shoph X and Flawless 4, eyeshadow palettes, I wrote extensively about them in my previous post (you can read more by clicking on each one of them). Although I love pairing bright shades with a neutral lip or just a little bit of my Clinique lip oil, I also love adding some depth to my lips. And not just for that, I found this amazing L.O.V. lip stick in shade Angelina’s belief in my makeup drawer and I’ve been obsessed with its texture ever since! It is somewhere between a brown and a red, but looks pretty neutral on my lips. I only need to do a small retouch after my lunch, otherwise stays put throughout most of my day. I love it!

Last but not least, my hectic schedule calls for some relaxing aromatherapy sessions whenever possible. As stated before, I love floral scents that remind me of spring, which is finally here! I cannot get my hands off of the L’Occitane’s miniature fragrances that I got in their Premium Advent Calendar last year (by the way, it was worth every penny and I’m sure it will be mine this year as well!). Néroli & Orchidée is so elegant and fresh, perfectly blending floral notes and fruity scents. And although there is a slight hint of lemon, Verveine is the one to go for if you’re really into citruses! Verbena, geranium and lemon tree make a perfect summer perfume. This one brings back so many memories of my teenage years as my mom, my sister and I used up several bottles years ago, I love it!

My hands have finally recovered after experiencing so much cold this year! No surprise that my fave hand cream at the moment also comes from L’Occitane. Since I love their Cherry Blossom fragrance, there was no doubt I would like their Cherry Blossom Hand Cream, too. Works like a charm and leaves a gorgeous scent that sticks around for a couple of minutes. And the product that’s been helping me sleep lately is the This Works Stress Check, a wonderful therapeutic roll on that I actually received for Christmas from one of my friends. It consists of pure Eucalyptus, Frankincense and Lavender essential oils that immediately calm me down. Just a few rolls on my wrists and I’m good to go straight into bed.

This is my recap of all the items I’ve been loving these past weeks. If we share a favorite or you have some other products on your list, please let us all know in the comments :)

iLove Parfums by Herbio

img_6832img_6858As I am a huge supporter of Slovenian companies, I was really glad that Herbio released a new fragrance line recently. The company is mainly focusing on their own herbal skincare, but now they also offer six fragrances for women and four for men. I was kindly invited to their event where I received a fragrance No. H7005 in such a beautiful and elegant bottle! It features fruity notes of pear and black currant, flowery notes of iris, jasmine and orange blossom along with patchouli, tonka bean, praline and vanilla. All in all, a gorgeous combination of fruits and flowers with a hint of oriental sweetness. The reason I adore this fragrance so much is probably because it is very similar to one of my favorite eaux de parfum, La vie est belle. It develops nicely on my skin with iris and praline coming to the fore – a winning combination in my opinion, but you can find your own favorite here! Anyway, it has a decent wear time, I can notice it throughout the day without being too overpowering and it fades by the end of the day. Herbio, thank you once again for sharing a bit of you new line with me and I cannot wait to try more of your products!

Ker sem velika podpornica slovenskih podjetij, sem bila resnično vesela, da so pri znamki Herbio pred kratkim izdali novo linijo dišav. Podjetje se sicer osredotoča na izdelavo svoje lastne zeliščne kozmetike, zdaj pa imajo na voljo tudi šest ženskih in štiri moške parfumske vodice. Na njihovem dogodku sem prejela dokaj sladko dišavo s številko H7005 v izjemno čudoviti in elegantni steklenički. V dišavi se prepletajo sadne note hruške in črnega ribeza, cvetlične note iris, jasmina in cveta pomarančevca ter pačuli, tonka, pralina in vanilija. Gre torej za prijetno mešanico sadnih in cvetličnih not s pridihom orientalske sladkobe. Verjetno mi je zelo všeč prav zato, ker je podobna eni mojih najljubših parfumskih vodic, La vie est belle. Na koži se res lepo razvije, v ospredje pa pri meni najbolj prideta iris in pralina – zame zmagovalna kombinacija, ve pa lahko svojo najljubšo najdete tukaj! Vonj se zelo lepo obdrži na koži, čez dan ga sicer opazim, vendar ni premočan, do večera pa se povsem razdiši. Herbio, še enkrat hvala, da ste z mano delili delček nove linije, komaj pa čakam, da preizkusim še kakšen izdelek!
