caudalie eau de beauté beauty elixir

Research what to buy at the French pharmacy, and chances are the Caudalie Beauty Elixir pops up. Last year this beauty cult favourite turned 20 years old, yet its origins lie in the 16th century when it was used as an elixir of youth by Queen Isabelle of Hungary. According to the legend, the Queen’s complexion was so youthful and radiant that it charmed the King of Poland, a man 35 years younger than herself.  View Post

Bourjois has a special place in my heart when it comes to base products. The Healthy Mix foundation is one of my all-time favourite drugstore foundations and I really loved the 123 Perfect CC cream too, so I’m always looking forward to the next release. View Post

When the Glamglow Volcasmic Matte Glow Moisturizer came in the mail I had no idea what to expect. Matte glow?? What is that supposed to mean? Confused and convinced it probably was some gimmick I wouldn’t like, I left it in my cabinet for awhile. In my defense, I did have quite a few of moisturizers to review at the time. Once I tried it, I knew I had been holding off on trying what was the most unique formula I tried in years. A closer look at the packaging led me to the words ‘Made in Korea‘ and suddenly everything started to make sense. View Post

Winter may be in full force but I already have my eye on Spring thanks to the lovely new H&M Home Spring 2018 campaign that was partly shot in Hotel Julien in Antwerp. A pretty colour palette of white, soft pink and beige hues combined with simple design and textural elements are key. The second interior trend H&M Home presents for spring is warm minimalism, where animal prints, wood details and handcrafted materials set the tone in a colour palette of neutrals, blue and gray.

As I was checking my blog recently, I noticed 3 years have gone by since my last Bourjois post! Time to catch up! I have quite a few products to talk about, starting with the Bourjois Color Edition 24H eyeshadows. A good selection of cream eyeshadows is still rather hard to find at the drugstore, so I was pleasantly surprised to find these. View Post

For centuries the lotus flower has been the symbol of eternal beauty thanks to its ability to restore itself in the most extreme circumstances. Today, Kenzo offers a range of 7 anti-aging products to honor the divine power of the lotus; the Kenzoki Belle De Jour Sacred Lotus collection. Together with brown algae extract and plankton, the lotus extract is said to help fade the signs of ageing (wrinkles, loss of firmness and less radiant complexion). View Post
