brushing express & miraculous oil

garnier-hair-oils-spring-2014

Rumor has it that we, all the girls that belong to the Leo zodiac, have an erotic relationship with our hair. I won’t disagree, I will say that how my hair look has a huge effect on my mood and how I feel about myself. Though, due to my hectic everyday life, most of the time I forget to take care of them or use appropriate products for their protection, and taking into consideration the fact that I use hair dryers and flat irons almost everyday, this has made my hair dry and ugly! So I decided to start using these two hair oils from Garnier Fructis, both of them promising to better the appearance of my hair.

Είναι γνωστό ότι όλα τα κορίτσια που ανήκουν στο ζώδιο του Λιονταριού, έχουμε μια ερωτική σχέση με τα μαλλιά μας. Προσωπικά, η όψη των μαλλιών μου επηρεάζει τη διάθεσή μου και το πώς νιώθω για την εμφάνιση μου. Παρ’όλα αυτά, εξαιτίας της πιεστικής καθημερινότητας συχνά ξεχνάω να περιποιηθώ τα μαλλιά μου ή να χρησιμοποιήσω κατάλληλα προϊόντα προστασίας, και λαμβάνοντας υπόψιν το γεγονός ότι χρησιμοποιώ καθημερινά σεσουάρ ή σίδερο ισιώματος, τα μαλλιά μου είναι ξηρά και αφυδατωμένα! Ξεκίνησα, λοιπόν, να χρησιμοποιώ δύο λάδια μαλλιών από τη Garnier Fructis, αφού και τα δύο υπόσχονται να βελτιώσουν την εικόνα των μαλλιών μου.

Miraculous Oil Brushing Express: 
Enriched with Argan essence, Miraculous Oil Brushing Express has a nο oily composition, offers heat protection for up to 230° C , while it helps the hair dry much easier than before. Obviously, I use this product when my hair are wet, and before using a flat iron/hair dryer, but you can it use in dry hair too! It protects my hair from further damage, make them look healthier and smells amazingly!

Εμπλουτισμένο με το έλαιο Argan, το Miraculous Oil Brushing Express έχει μη λιπαρή σύνθεση, προστατεύει τα μαλλιά από συσκευές θερμοκρασίας μέχρι και 230° C, ενώ παράλληλα επιταχύνει το στέγνωμα. Προφανώς, το χρησιμοποιώ σε βρεγμένα μαλλιά πριν χρησιμοποιήσω σεσουάρ/σίδερο ισιώματος, αλλά μπορεί να χρησιμοποιηθεί και σε στεγνά μαλλιά. Όταν το χρησιμοποιώ τα μαλλιά μου δείχνουν πιο υγιή και ενυδατωμένα, ενώ ταυτόχρονα μυρίζουν υπέροχα!

Miraculous Oil:
Miraculous Oil is also enriched with Argan essence and nourish dry hair, while it makes brushing easier! It can be used in dry hair at any moment of the day. and makes my hair shine and feel softer. It makes gorgeously too!

Αντίστοιχα με το Brushing Express, το Miraculous Oil είναι εμπλουτισμένο με το έλαιο Argan και θρέφει τα ξηρά και αφυδατωμένα μαλλιά, ενώ διευκολύνει το χτένισμα. Το χρησιμοποιώ σε στεγνά μαλλιά, ανά πάσα στιγμή μέσα στη μέρα, συνήθως όταν νιώθω τα μαλλιά μου φριζαρισμένα, και τα κάνει πιο απαλά και λαμπερά! Επιπλέον, θα λατρέψετε το άρωμά του!

Micellaire Cleansing water & Express 2-in-1 eye make-up remover

garnier-skin-naturals-2014-make-up-removers
Today, I want to talk to you about my two favorite products from Garnier Skin Naturals right now, the Skin Naturals Micellaire Cleansing Water and the Skin Naturals Express 2-in-1 Eye Make-up Remover. These products among others were part of the press kit at the latest Garnier press event and I started using them around three weeks ago.

Σήμερα θέλω να σας μιλήσω για δύο προϊόντα της Garnier Skin Naturals, το Νερό Ντεμακιγιάζ Micellaire και το Ντεμακιγιάζ Ματιών Express 2 σε 1. Ξεκίνησα να τα χρησιμοποιώ πριν από τρεις εβδομάδες, σχεδόν από την επόμενη μέρα που μου τα έδωσαν στο press event της Garnier.

garnier-skin-naturals-2014-micellaire-cleansing-water

Skin Naturals Micellaire Cleansing Water: The Garnier Micellaire Cleansing Water promises to remove the make-up, cleanses and soothes. It needs no rinsing, has no perfume, while it’s appropriate for even sensitive skins. Not only does it the job, but it’s very gentle, yet so effective on the whole face, and removes mascara, eyeliner and lipstick brilliantly. Every time I use this product, my skin feels so refreshed and relaxed. It’s worth pointing out the micellaire water is cheap too, you pay 6,50€ for 400 ml. This is a win-win situation!

Νερό Ντεμακιγιάζ Micellaire: Το συγκεκριμένο νερό ντεμακιγιάζ υπόσχεται ότι αφαιρεί το μακιγιάζ, καθαρίζει και καταπραΰνει. Δεν χρειάζεται ξέβγαλμα, δεν έχει άρωμα, ενώ είναι κατάλληλο και για τις πιο ευαίσθητες επιδερμίδες. Όχι μόνο πραγματοποιεί όσα υπόσχεται, αλλά είναι πολύ ελαφρύ, και αποτελεσματικό σε ολόκληρο το πρόσωπο, αφαιρεί την μάσκαρα, το eyeliner και το κραγιόν τέλεια! Κάθε φορά που το χρησιμοποιώ νιώθω το δέρμα μου ανανεωμένο και απαλό. Επίσης, το micellaire νερό ντεμακιγιάζ της Garnier είναι αρκετά φθηνό, καθώς πληρώνεις 6,50€ για 400 ml.

garnier-skin-naturals-2014-eyes-make-up-remover-express-2-in-1

Skin Naturals Express 2-in-1 Eye Make-up Remover: This is a two phased double action formula, and removes eye make-up perfectly, even waterproof. Using this particular remover I felt that the skin around my eyes were a little greasy, but I went on and used another cotton pud and everything was gone. Waterproof mascara is part of my everyday life, and I feel happy that I use this product, since it works perfectly and leaves my skin absolutely cleansed! I would definitely recommend it to everyone!

Ντεμακιγιάζ Ματιών Express 2 σε 1: To προϊόν αυτό είναι ένα ειδικά σχεδιασμένο διφασικό νερό για το ντεμακιγιάζ των ματιών, που αφαιρεί με απόλυτη επιτυχία ακόμη και την αδιάβροχη μάσκαρα, εύκολα και γρήγορα. Όταν το χρησιμοποιώ νιώθω ότι αφήνει μια λιπαρή αίσθηση στο δέρμα γύρω από τα μάτια, αλλά χρησιμοποιώντας ένα ακόμα δίσκο ντεμακιγιάζ, αυτή η αίσθηση εξαφανίζεται. Χρησιμοποιώ αδιάβροχη μάσκαρα κάθε μέρα, οπότε νιώθω πολύ χαρούμενη που χρησιμοποιώ αυτό το προϊόν αφού είναι ιδιαίτερα αποτελεσματικό και αφήνει το δέρμα μου καθαρό.

L’Oreal Paris skin perfection

l'oreal-paris-skin-perfection-01

Today we’ll make a review of the Skin Perfection range. Just let me first mention how much I love the packaging, it is very pretty and lovely; pink-fuchsia boxes and bottles!

Now, let’s go on with the review! I started using the L’Oreal Paris Skin Perfection range more than a month ago, so I can tell you how I feel about each product. The range consists of five products, an Advanced Correcting Serum, a Correcting Day Moisturizer, two BB Cream 5 in 1 Instant Blemish Balm in Fair and Medium, a Magic Touch Instant-BlurThe collection is aimed at the 20-30 market, so it’s up to my needs, and since it promises to tone, minimize pores and improve the texture of your skin (aka make my skin look perfect without using make-up), this is a challenge (extra info: I don’t use make-up so I want need to have a perfect skin). 

  • Advanced Correcting Serum: Enriched with LR2412 and Perline-P, this serum aims to tighten pores, refine skin texture and brighten skin tone! It has a light consistency and instantly disappears on application. It contains 30ml of the product and comes with a great pump, making it easy to take the exact amount you want, though one pump covers your entire face! I have been using it for about one month now, every night and morning before applying moisturizer, and I love it! Even though, I don’t have any major problem, I noticed a difference in the look and feel of my skin.

  • Correcting Day Moisturizer: The pink day cream is also enriched with Perline-P and is ideal for all skin types. It promises to improve the quality of your entire face, and it certainly does from the first use. Although I was afraid to use this moisturizer due to its consistency, my skin absords it immediately and feels smooth. I apply this day cream every morning after the correcting serum, and it works perfect for my skin! Also, I feel that even though the range targets at 20-30 market, this particular moisturizer could be used for older ages too.

  • Magic Touch Instant-Blur: This is a cream with rich consistency and has a definite brightening effect. This product is indicated for topical application and can work as a primer, before the make-up. As the other products do, despite its heavy synthesis, it adsorbs in a flash and becomes one with the skin. I like the fact that it covers imperfections (as I don’t use make-up) and I can reassure you that you gonna love it!

l'oreal-paris-skin-perfection-02-Magic-Touch-Instant-Blur

  • BB Cream 5 in 1 Instant Blemish Balm: According to the L’Oreal Paris, this product offers 24hour hydration, targets appearance of dark spots, and has sun protection SPF 25. To tell the truth, I’ve never used another BB cream before, but this one feels great, offers light coverage and moisturizes my skin. It seems like a foundation, though it blends great! I use the fair shade as fits my skin complexion and doesn’t leave a greasy residue. 
l'oreal-paris-skin-perfection-03-BB-Cream-5-in-1-Instant-Blemish-Balm

To sum up, this range has improved the quality of my skin. The products are good value for money. My skin feels nourished, even though it’s usually dry during winter.

diy glitter nail polish

diy-glitter-nail-polish
Ιn a previous post about nails, I said that I love mixing my old nail polishes or experimenting with other materials. So I couldn’t help but trying to make as glitter nail polish on my own. I had a Seventeen Cosmetics transparent, shining nail polish (Super Shine, number 101), added pink glitter, yellow glitter and a little quantity of nail polish remover, and then, shaked it very well. As you can see, the result is quite satisfying.

Truth is that this diy glitter nail polish is not really of my style, but still I had to use it at least once. All my friends were shocked seeing me with a glitter nail polish, as I mostly use mat, dark-colored ones, but I had no problem with that; it was a nice change. I think that this diy glitter nail polish will be useful through spring, when colorful clothes are my staple.

dreamcatcher fake tattoo

dreamcatcher-fake-tattoos-01
I had the chance to try this dreamcatcher from FAKE TATTOOS, sent to me from the company to review it. Even if putting it on my skin reminded of my childhood, when I used to make Ninja turtles tattoos from the chewing gums, I kinda like the result and it was really easy and quick to apply. It took me less than 5 minutes to put it, as I only had to press the tattoo on my skin, with design facing down and wait for 30 seconds, while holding a wet cloth against the back of the tattoo. I put this temporary tattoo, yesterday, and sported it in a mini dress and high heels. I felt that it absolutely completed my outfit and made it more unique.

I really suggest that you visit FAKE TATTOOS and choose your favorite temporary tattoos, as it is an awesome fashion accessory and a huge trend as well. FAKE TATTOOS have a large variety of trendy, romantic, funny temporary tattoos and so on, I am sure that you will like most of them.
