STEP 4 –concealer: I suggest you use the  Perfecting stick concealer Long Lasting by Shiseido. It contains a high amount of pigment, from where I stand it’s a lucky formula that is efficient in camouflaging discoloration, unevenness, spots and other flaws. It has a prominent creamy consistency but does not generate that greasy look we all hate so much, moreover it blends seamlessly into the skin. If the skin under your eyes is very dry-you need to hydrate it very well before applying the concealer. And more: if you have visible wrinkles under your eyes-the greasy effect might occur, so you should use this concealer on your face,  while those who have relatively smooth skin under their eyes can  apply it on that area as well.

It was quite a task for me to find a face cream that would actually hydrate my skin and at the same contain only natural components. My skin is dry. After several failed attempts I decided to settle for AnnMarie Borlind. Not all but most of its ingredients are natural. And many of her products actually work. Continue Reading

A couple of months ago, I decided to give Kiehl’s a try and I wrote several posts on the topic. I’ve been using these products since and now I can give you an informed opinion on their long-term effect on your skin. Continue Reading

A person shouldn’t do something out of obligation, if you’re gonna do it, do it because you want it. That’s an important rule I try to follow in life. And I did want a fashion blog, and then, everything that comes along with it like photo shoots, not being able to go somewhere without thinking “oh wait I need to take a thousand pics of myself being here first so I can choose one that’s just right and then I’ll enjoy the rest of whatever it is I went there to do”.

Today we’ll talk about the second face care product from the Kiehl’s products research I’m doing right now. So, we’ll analyze the Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado. I’m simply obsessed with eye creams, and I have to tell you this one is a pretty good damn one! I’m very realistic as a person and I use caution when praising face care products, but I have to say that this cream is simply magic, and I actually see my eyes looking younger and my micro-wrinkles disappearing.

I got my hands on several of KIEHL’s products and I’m now trying them on myself to see if they really are as good as the company wants us to believe.  Today’s post is about the KIEHL”S Ultra Facial Overnight Hydrating Mask. What is the brand promising us here: you’ll wake up in the morning with a well-hydrated and smooth skin. That’s a fine promise, I’ll tell you, and good advertising for that matter. Those words will get a woman to buy the product. But you know what? It turns out it’s all true! Continue Reading

As trivial as it might sound, the best sun protection out there is about wearing hats, sunglasses and clothes. You can also rely on zinc oxide and astaxanthin in that respect. And then there is sunscreen, which you shouldn’t actually rely on. For decades, doctors and media have been recommending the use of sunscreen before going outside. Why then, one might wonder, the incidence of cancer cases has increased dramatically since people started using sunscreen? Well, all these specialists avoid talking about the specific types of sunscreen that are actually efficient for their purpose. How often have you heard recommendations on how to efficiently “use” sunscreen in order to protect yourself from skin cancer and at the same time increase levels of vitamin D, which is so important for your health and plays a vital role in preventing melanoma.

Today I’d like to share my impressions from a good massage cream that I’m using on my posterior. We all want a beautiful round smooth booty because rumor has it that men pay even more attention to buttocks than they do to breasts. So us ladies work hard. Continue Reading
