Things I currently love…

How cute is this teacup, seriously? I found it at eurodif, the temple of cute teasets.

As you maybe know, I study English-language, British and American Literature, culture (and it is one of the reasons I write in English) and one of my new year’s resolutions was to read more books written in English. So I chose one of my favorite stories: Breakfast at Tiffany’s!

Zara home is the perfect shop for cute duvet covers. I found this one with flowers (of course…) and birds but I unfortunately bought a too little one (well done!). Anyway, I still like it.

Have you ever tried Sanoflore products? Organic and quite affordable, I love them! This french brand generally uses flowers, as a consequence the products smell really good. Here are a make-up remover foam made of cornflower, very gentle and leaves your skin fresh and clean and a deodorant which is really fresh. (left: Oysho pyjama/ right: Zara pink scarf)

The famous eau de beauté by Caudalie. I love Caudalie products for their freshness. I use this one after cleaning my face and before using my moisturizing cream. But you can use it as you want: to fix your make-up, to brighten your skin up all day long.

 


Last but not least, especially for Harry Potter lovers: here’s a youtube channel I discovered and loooove, especially while studying: the sound ambience of different places of Harry’s world recreated, the girl who has this channel is just SO talented.

The perfect shower

dsc08516-jpg_effected

These last few months, I’ve really been into Lush products, generally bubble bars or bathbombs. I recieved a sample of Ro’s Argan and I just fell in love! I really liked the Rose Jam bubbleroon for its scent which is just incredible, and Ro’s Argan has the same one. Let me introduce you this product: a body conditioner you use under the shower and rinse it (perfect if you always forget to use your bodycream after the shower, just like me), and made of nourishing argan oil, Brazil nuts oil and sweet almond. As you can guess, a luxurious treatment for you skin which will instantly be silky soft. The scent stays for hours, and will be more intense if you use Rose Jam at the same time (but I don’t know if you still can find it in stores, it was a limited edition for winter time). Rose Jam is such a divine product. I really like its consistency which is like jelly and obviously, is also made of argan oil and Turkish roses. You’ll literally smell like a rose.

I recieved a Sephora gift card and here are the two products I chose: Leonor Greyl divine honey shampoo and a styling cream. For sure the BEST hair products I’ve ever used. When I use the combo, my hair looks like I went to the hairdresser and are so soft and without any unruly lock. The texture and the smell of the shampoo are amazing: smells like honey, looks like honey. Unfortunately the bottle is quite tiny and if you have a lot of hair and need a lot of shampoo, it’s not really « profitable ». But just try it once in your life, you’ll have angel hair!

So, as you can guess the combo of the Lush and Leonor Greyl products will make you spend a luxurious and agreable moment. I really like to do it when I’m tired and need some quality time!

Chance

If you like fresh, floral fragrances with a note of citrus fruits… Chance is for you. I’m sure you’ve seen the advertisement, with these ladies playing bowling, made by Jean-Paul Goude. Obviously it recreates the spirit of this scent: lightness, softness, a hint of playfulness. I really like the simplicity of the bottle.

The MAC « ambre » palette is one of my make-up favorites. I was searching for a nice palette, with neutral tones, easy to wear and longlasting. I got my eyes on the NARS « long hot summer » palette, but didn’t find it in France.

I purchased the 2 first naked palettes a long time ago but I don’t use all the eyeshadows in it: a few were too dark for me! Recently, the black one cracked and… black everywhere, impossible to use it properly. Anyway, I’m in looove. The colors are beautiful, as the texture. A little expensive for a tiny palette (the size of the palm of my hands, more or less) but MAC has done a great job!

Essie nailpolish « Sugar daddy » : a beautiful pinky nude!

Essie nailpolishes are very good products, I’ve never been disappointed! I buy them in Germany, because they’re less expensive than in France (almost half of the price). Kate La Vie‘s collection is my goal haha.

Nyx butter lipgloss « Tres Leches » and Maybelline lipstick « Coffee Craze »

As you may know, Nyx products are very popular because they’re cruelty free, and especially the matte lipsticks (I suppose because of the 90s make-up trend which is back). So I decided to give it a try and I was quite pleasantly suprised. A good pigmentation, texture and longlasting. The second lipstick is a Maybelline one, « Coffe craze »: the perfect browny nude! It also smells incredibly gooood, like coffee with caramel!

I saw these velvet loafers… As a huge fan of velvet things, I had to buy it. But unfortunately my feet regret it…They’re so painful but I still find them gorgeous haha.

Haircare & skincare routine

Today I want to share with you my haircare & skincare routine! I recently discovered a few products which changed my life. Especially these products by the brand Klorane, you can find them in every drugstore in France. As you may know if you know me in real life, I’ve got long hair for several years. Quite thick, and tends to be dry and sometimes, damaged. I was searching for the perfect moisturizing product and I finally found it: this shampoo with mango butter, the moisturizing mask (you can use it once or twice a week, leave to rest for a few minutes under a hot towel, then rinse thoroughly and your hair will be soft like silk), and the conditioning balm. Moreover, I think the composition is quite natural. If you’re still searching for the perfect moisturizing shampoo, give it a try!

For a daily use, I love this shampoo with oat milk, made especially for frequent use. Obviously it’s very gentle and let your hair fresh and clean. When I’m in a hurry and I want to refresh my hair I use this dry shampoo by René Furterer which I love. Usually I’m not a big fan of dry shampoo but this one is really good.

The second product that changed my life is the gentle foaming cleanser by Clarins, my skin is just amazing since I started using it! As its name says, this skincare product is really gentle. The purifying products I used before were too agressive for a daily use (for example the purifying foaming gel when I had some troubles with my skin, which suddently became oily). Your skin will be clean, soft and without any imperfection. As the days pass, you’ll see your skin more and more radiant.

My one and only make-up remover is the Bioderma Créaline H2O. This product is just AMAZING. I discovered it in 2011 or 2012 I think, and I’m still using it. Before, I always had some problems with make-up removers which didn’t remove all my mascara and I just hate going to sleep with mascara on my lashes (am I weird? haha)

As I said, this La Roche-Posay foaming gel is better for an occasional use, when your skin is really bad and needs a « deep cleaning ». This product is really efficient.

Now, let’s talk about hydratation! I use every morning after cleaning my skin the Sanoflore Rosa angelica moisturizing cream (I already spoke about it in an other post), which is fresh and smells really good. At night, after cleaning my skin, removing my make-up, I use the Avene moisturizing cream or the hydra intense mask and the moisturizing eye-cream by Nuxe. This cream is also perfect for hard mornings, when you slept just a few hours.

A good tonifying lotion is important. I recently purchased this one by Caudalie, which is very refreshing and has a light smell of grapes. This brand is just amazing, quite affordable, with efficient products of very good quality. I also want to get my hands on their bodyscrub which seems to be amazing too.
