🌻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 […]

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 […]

Scents of this summer: CK IN2U For Her & Verveine by L’Occitane

CK IN2U Her and L’Occitane Verveine

I am what could be termed a perfume serial monogamist: when I open one, I wear it without alternating with any other until is all used up, and then and only then I’ll start a new one, which is never the same one, and rarely it is one I’ve used in the past. Nevertheless, this summer I broke with that long habit forced by circumstance: in late spring I started using “IN2U for her” by […]

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 […]
