Ok,now that is a very difficult matter to do research for. We all know how frequent it is for several cosmetics companies to perform animal testing for their products. When I was younger I wasn’t really paying attention to that. It wasn’t because I don’t like animals,on the contrary!
Happy July you all!!! i hope you’re having a wonderful time. Today i’ve decided to share with you my must have beauty products for summer.
Oily complexion gives me hard times even during summer. The heat,the makeup and the sunscreen don’t really make a good combo so I have to be extra careful! The ac-norm line of freezyderm is helping me big time to avoid new blackhead and oiliness breaks and leaves my skin very clean and soft. I use it in the morning (the foam) and at night I use the Avene cleanance gel. I use the peel off mask twice a week too for maximum results!
Chanel hair mist
Love love love loooooove this mist!!! The scent is amazing and I’ve been wanting this for so long and now that I got it I’m literally obsessed with it!!
Victoria secret body mist
I first bought this set last summer but it is officially one of my favorite ones,especially when traveling. During summer I avoid perfumes so this is a very good choice! I use the body lotion after showering and the mist to make it last longer and I’m ready to go!
I’ve talked to you about it before and I’m clearly not the only one,right? I use it all the time for my back (it’s oily too so if I scratch it then I have small marks which I want to get rid off like crazy!!) and I see a huge difference after just few days. It’s also very good for stretch marks!!
Day cream to the rescue!! It’s a very good,light day cream and it’s just what i want for summer.
Dettol shower gel
Designed to block sweat odor this shower gel is amazing for summer with all that heat! It’s also Dettol,one of my favorite cleaning brands ever!
Korres sun protection face
What’s a summer in Greece without a good sunblock?? Korres is one of my biggest beauty crashes and I’ve been using their sun protection series and after sun yogurt for years and I’m not changing it any time soon!
Elizabeth Arden 8h hand cream
Do I really need to explain myself on that one?? Elizabeth Arden’s 8h line is one of the best cream lines you can find. Hydrates the skin without all that heaviness and oiliness that other products have. When traveling I love taking this hand cream and use it as a body cream!
I’ve already done a piece on Konjac sponge before. I keep using it fanatically and I see great difference on my face and neck. I think it helps a lot with cleaning deeper and more properly my skin and pores so I’ll keep using it this summer too!
I especially love the scent and how clean and smooth my face feels after using them. I use the exfoliator in the shower,to benefit from the water heat in order to open my pores more. The foaming cleanser is so convenient and it comes in small size (which I absolutely adore for traveling!) and its suitable for everyday use!
Have you ever used Caudalie before? Please share and let me know if I should try any other products too!!
I have already mentioned (more than once) my admiration for the talented designer Athina Korda. I first saw her at AXDWeek 2 years ago and ever since i have been checking her. Every year I adore more and more her style and aesthetics. Her love for black and geometric figures add a twist in every design. Her latest collection ” Mute” has influences from the ocean’s movement. Blue depicts the waves, black the power and mystery of the ocean and white the sand. It has to be my favorite collection so far and i feel like she is growing as a designer in every collection!
Those following my Instgram account might have noticed how much affected I’ve been with summer and how I’ve already done my summer shopping! No 1 item (obviously) has been the swimsuit!
Although i wont be continuing my capsule wardrobe this summer too i am determined to keep it simple and not to overdo it. So I only buying things that will elevate my wardrobe, without spending a fortune. So here is what i have come up with so far! I have already bought the one piece from Zara but I’m definitely getting a bikini too!
I’m coming London!! Oh I can’t tell you how much I’ve missed London. I have a huge list with all the places I’ll go and of course a shopping list! And you know I still have to be true to my capsule wardrobe so the only things I can buy are the items missed from my summer capsule wardrobe and presents (I think I’m gonna bring a lot of presents back!!). So for now,I will share with you my packing tips and my signature vacation styles for great casual looks!
My number one item is my faux leather bikers jacket. It’s a great must and goes with everything! Mine is from forever21 but similar styles you can find in most stores.
Plain t-shirts are also a must in my luggage. In white and black I love wearing them with many necklaces and a laced bra under them, to give a more girly and stylish vibe. They are also super comfy and I want to be stress free on my vacay.
A dress always comes in handy!Since I’m not gonna be partying or anything I decided not to include any formalwear. That’s why I’ll only bring a nice spring colorful dress for my everyday walks and I’ll pair it with black tights and heels in case I decide to go for a drink!
Shirts are great both for everyday looks but also for night outs. I’ll pair them with my boyfriend jeans and a t-shirt in the mornings and with nice jewelry and tights at night.
Now when Kylie Jenner has a certain beauty routine that says it’s working you have to try it out! I read somewhere that her makeup artist is using this men after shave balm from Nivea as a short of primer. My primer is quite good but I feel it heavy for everyday use. So I thought to give this wired trick a go.I have been using it for two weeks now and I think it’s working guys! I only use little,as I don’t want my skin to have that “man sent” . But I think my skin looks vivid and it feels really light! I was afraid I might end up with blackheads or that my oily skin will break but I have no problems so far! I definitely recommend this and I will keep using it!
Who can say no to 4 days full of fashion and style? We’ll certainly not I! Although having a crazy busy schedule I found the time to attend few of these amazing shows and see all these great bloggers too.
So here are just few of my favorite shows!
Topshop by Sotris
One of the best shows by far! And it wasn’t just the great clothes but also the amazing and talented Greek bloggers who walked the runway like pros!! Congrats to all talented ladies who had this great opportunity!
Amazing gowns,crystals,sheer fabrics and gorgeous one pieces were they key pieces of this amazing show!
Great street wear brand (and you know how much I love street style!!) and great show!
I had to face great temptation today at HM conscious exclusive release party. As you know during my capsule wardrobe attempt I cannot do any shopping. Image how hard it was for me to see all these gorgeous clothes and not be able to shop! Thank God my sister decided to buy me an early Easter present so now I can sleep tonight! 😂😂
Take a look at some of the amazing items!
