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!!
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!
Ok, all Asian related beauty products are always high in my shopping list! I have been using Chinese beauty masks over the years and I always find them helpful for my prone skin complexion. So obviously a MEGA beauty trend from Korea could not stay untested!!
The Konjac is a sponge that when dry is hard as rock. Its use is quite simple: you add warm water and your favorite cleanser and you massage your face. I have been using it for few weeks now,preferably in the shower to use the steam from the hot water to open my pores, and I do find it quite good! I find my skin more light,more clean and more vivid! I actually think that I tend to have less blackhead breaks around my nose!
This is definitely one of the products I’ll keep using! Thanks Sephora for bringing it to Greece!!

We’ve all been through it: coming home late at night,too tired to do anything but still wearing your makeup. So what do you do? Well, best case scenario is to quickly use one of the wet tissues and go to bed. Worst case? Sleep with your makeup still on.
You don’t need me to tell you how bad this is for your skin,right?
The thing is, we all think that this is the worst thing we can do to our skin but it’s not the only one! Even when you think you are following a good skin care routine you might be mistaken!
So here are some basic errors we all do!
• never skip your day and night cream
Nutrition and hydration is very important for your skin. Even if you don’t wear makeup still you have to apply day cream before you leave the house and night cream right after you wash it!
One of my top New Years Resolutions (EVERY SINGE YEAR!!) is to become more active and exercise more! It doesn’t always happen, unfortunately, but a make a dissent effort every year! 🙂
What i do love though about that resolution is obviously the shopping involved in it!
Here are the best picks for this year’s gym wear!
I’ve been wanting to try MAC’s makeup line for quite some time now. While browsing their website I found that studio fix fluid fond de teint was the makeup that would fit best my criteria.
I began using the makeup and the powder plus foundation in the middle of August. I instantly noticed how easily I could apply it and of course how well it would last for many hours! At first I got the C4,5 which is a bit dark,as my skin was still suntanned! Now I use the C3,5 and usually mixing it a bit with the old one to create a more natural color!
I have to tell you that for me this line can only be compared to the Dermablend line from Vichy! From all the makeups I’ve tried over the years these two are the only ones that provide good coverage but also benefit the skin as they don’t damage it at all!
Getting ready for autumn yet?
The easiest way to transition from summer to autumn is to start changing the accessories of your looks! A scarf,a bootie and of course a good nail polish in the trendiest autumn colors! Here’s a list of my favorite ones!
