Resuming Reviewing: Nacomi Black Soap and Smooth Body Butter

Nacomi black soap

I like to take my time to evaluate how my paints and potions perform, and then write about the experience, and this time it can’t be said I didn’t give it a fair amount of time for judgement; if it hadn’t been because I hadn’t felt like posting for a while already, I’d have said I left my blogging muse stranded somewhere in an Asian airport… Yet, soon as I made myself put fingers to […]

Almonds for autumn: Marnys Sweet Almond Oil & Yves Rocher Shower Gel

Yves Rocher shower gel

Sweet almond oil isn’t my favorite cosmetic oil, there are others I like more like apricot kernel oil, and avocado kernel oil; still, I consider it a staple in my bathroom cabinet, and I end up using it often for a variety of purposes. So when I chanced upon this sweet almond oil by Marnys in a health-food shop, into the basket it went. I use this brands’ carrier oils often: the quality is always […]

Sun protection & sultry looks: Mercadona SPF 50 sun lotion for sensitive skin + summer essentials

Mercadona sun lotion SPF 50

Curiously enough, even though I await summer eagerly all year, I’m also all for being exposed to bosses, relatives and sunshine as little as possible… other than that, I enjoy sultry weather and the state of mind that comes with it, hanging out outdoors with a few chosen… and since my tolerance to heat is high 😈 I enjoy the Schadenfreude I get from seeing others suffer as I suffer in wintertime, while I’m all: […]

Bamboo Beauty Review: Ecotools Brushes and TONYMOLY Bamboo Gel

TONYMOLY Bamboo Cool Water Soothing Gel

I’ve been eyeing the Ecotools brushes for ages, and now these are mine mine mine… there isn’t much more left to be said about this brand, which has certainly become popular in the Spanish beauty blogosphere and beyond, with good reason: they are great value for the price, and as eco-friendly as a consumer product can get. As for the TONYMOLY bamboo gel, I bought this after an unfortunate incident with a DIY mask (an […]

Pantalla solar Sun Med y stick labial Piz Buin

And I’m back again! I like warm weather, I do, that’s one of the reasons why I live where I live, but between the summer preview we’re experiencing, and other circumstances I’ve needed to conserve my energy… anyhow, I’m here again, and my back-to-blogging review is all about SPF, of course. In case you find yourself sunscreen-less in the middle of your Spanish holiday and need to locate a bottle ASAP, the sun lotion in […]

Smells like getaway: Deliplus Exotic Shampoo and Sephora Monoï velvet cream

Sephora monoï velvet cream

I adore aromas with a touch of the exotic, which almost always put me in a good mood, and apparently they’re something my fam and friends tend to associate with me (silly as it is, this makes me happy). So, both of the products reviewed today were given to me by two friends of mine who know my weakness. Deliplus Exotic Shampoo In short, it’s just your regular inexpensive, supermarket-brand (Mercadona) shampoo for the most […]

Coco-binge: coconut body care from Sephora and Marnys

Sephora Coconut Milk Body Lotion

Last time I was in Sephora I was eyeing the Color Line they launched a little while ago, especially the coconut lipbalm and micellar water… in the end I decided not to bite, though the temptation was strong… I ADORE most things coconut-scented, but I’m afraid of coconut oil because it’s known to be highly comedogenic, so I avoid any and all facial products that have it, and stick to coconut body care. Since my […]

Winter suncare: my body and lip care during these holidays

24 de diciembre

At this point, it’s no longer necessary to tell you that UVA rays (the bad guys, the melanoma and aging ones) are at it all year long so long as there’s daylight, right? No matter if it’s winter, if it’s overcast, cold, dreary, miserable, etc. So I wear sunscreen year-round, a habit I’m glad I got into from a very young age. Besides, I’ve never been much of a sun bunny anyway. For some reason […]
