11 Blogger Questions, & An Unexpected Rec: Liebster Awards

Favorite films

Alicia from the blog Momentos de Evasión gave me a bit of a shock listing me among her nominees for the Liebster Awards. Eeeee! Okay, so there’s no gold-covered statuette involved or anything of the sort… it is merely a tag to acknowledge blogs you read and enjoy, and introduce them to other readers that might not yet have found them, a concept I love (though come to think of it, I can barely keep […]

Organic Rose Otto Lip Serum by Dr. Organic & Douglas Naturals lipbalm

Organic Rose Otto Lip Serum by Dr. Organic & Douglas Naturals lipbalm

I looove roses, I do, but as soon as Valentine’s starts creeping round social media and shop windows, suddenly the world is all via GIPHY But! the truth is that deep down I find collective nonsense like this entertaining, so I’m playing too, and today I bring roses… well, not really: I do bring lipbalm, though, which is a necessity for me at this time of the year; lately I’ve been using this Douglas Naturals […]

Review: The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% & Lactic Acid 10% + HA

The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Solution

Isn’t everybody just sick of seeing The Ordinary all over SM and beyond? There simply isn’t a nook or cranny in the beauty blogosphere where this brand hasn’t gotten to; their products are like glitter, or like cockroaches (and their tune), or like Madonna, and her tunes… nevertheless, I haven’t escaped either: I’ve been using their Lactic Acid 10% and their Salicylic Acid 2% for months now. I’ve no problem admitting that I’m a fangirl […]

December nail roundup: Inglot, Masglo, Wet ‘n Wild, IDC Color, Essence

December Nail Roundup

When I began this blog, I decided to leave out nail product reviews because, even though it’s rare for me to meet a polish I don’t like, it isn’t really something I find much material to draw from for a proper post, beyond the weekly #mani or #pedi IGram. Yet, after examining my IG stats, I have now changed my mind… apparently, viewers like nail posts (who’d have thought?), so in light of this, I […]

I Love… Lemon Sorbet Body Butter, Shower Gel and Whipped Sugar Scrub

I Love... Lemon Sorbet Body Butter

I’d seen this brand often in my frequent trips to cosmetics shop, but its products never caught my eye: even so, one fine day I decided to give the I Love… Lemon Sorbet shower gel a sniff, and it was just as the brand name said: ooh, come to me, yummy, caloric-smelling lemon meringue pie. Yes, pie, even though it’s called Lemon Sorbet, but who cares; it smells like lemon pie and it’s delicious. It’s […]

🌻Love You, Love You Not… La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo + & Anthelios SPF 50+

La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo +

One of these products I like very much, the other… not. In fact, I can’t bring myself to apply the latter now, so I stopped using it, or rather, I don’t use it on my face, which is what is made for. The product in question is La Roche-Posay Anthelios SPF 50+ invisible face mist. I bought this one at the end of summer, when days were still long, so when it was time for […]

Review: Bifull Oval Brushes & Kat Von D Lock-It foundation

Kat von D Lock It foundation

Many of the things that become frequent flyers all over SM profiles end up tiring me fast, yet oval makeup brushes caught my eye from the start, till I finally nabbed this set of oval brushes from Bifull, a Spanish brand specializing in professional items for the beauty industry. On the whole, I have the impression that this is kind of one of those sort-of polarizing items in the beauty blogosphere, in the sense that […]

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 […]

Peter Thomas Roth Mini Mask Magic Set

Peter Thomas Roth mask set

Other than my regular pore-cleaning clay masks, I use masques maybe once in a blue moon, so when I saw this Peter Thomas Roth Mini Mask Magic sample pack for sale at Sephora, I couldn’t grab it fast enough: this format was made for me, commitment-phobe and lover of sample sizes that I am. The rare times I use the “fancier” kind of masques is more for the “spa” experience (and a touch of superstition) […]

Booktag: Seven Book Sins

Patrick French - Edward Hall

Via [rom] at Flickr, CC BY-SA 2.0. Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch’intrate… Because it’s Saturday, and because we don’t live for paints, powders and potions alone (that’d be nice, though), but for words that inspire too… at least I do. I first saw the booktag “Seven Book Sins” in Alicia’s blog Momentos de Evasión, and I loved it, being that I love everything to do with books, with sin, or with both. So I’m playing […]

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 […]
