Garnier SkinActive – Moisture Bomb Super-Hydrating 3 in 1 SPF10

Image
byARita Hello beauties, Today I brought you an affordable day cream. A few weeks ago, while I was shopping I stopped in front of the Garnier expositor and decided to give it a chance. When I was younger, I used a bb cream and a matte moisturizer cream from this brand and I really liked it. So, I bought the Hydra Bomb day cream for dehydrated skin (this is actually one of my problems, as you know).





When I arrived home, I decided to google it and see some reviews about the product (big mistake). How I regret doing it! A lot were good but I saw a good amount of bad comments. I admit, I was very scared to open the product and I thought that maybe the best was going to the store and get my money back.

But the product was affordable so I decide to open it and try. Best decision, let me tell you!

As I said this product is good if your skin is dehydrated, shows the effects of time and your lifestyle (for example, dullness, irregularities, fine lines...).

Darphin Intral Voile protector Urbain

Hello beauties,

Unfortunately, summer is almost over, the leaves starting to fall, the weather is getting cold and our autumn clothes are starting to get out of the wardrobe.
But even not seeing the sun in this cloudy sky doesn´t mean that we can´t worry about our skin being exposed to the sun. That´s why Darphin launch in February this new product.
It’s not the first time that I talk about a Darphin product (if you want to see the other review click here) but I realized that I didn´t talk a lot about this brand.
Darphin is a French skincare brand that fuses the finest botanical ingredients with innovative technologies, professional expertise, and sensory specialized techniques.
They have some amazing products but today we are here to talk about one their newest the Darphin Intral Voile protector Urbain.


The voile is a shield used to protect our skin against the sun, it has Spf 50 with a mix of 100% mineral UVA/UVB filters but it also protects our skin against anti-radicals and pollution wi…

Monday mask #6 - GlamGlow SuperMud Clearing Treatment

Image
byJoana Hello beauties,

Today is Monday so it’s time to talk about another mask that we tried. We came back to a well-known brand: GlamGlow.
Did you know that GlamGlow started many years ago, as a brand used in Hollywood to help actress with their blemishes and imperfections before red carpet? Yes, that is right, but now is one of the hottest brands out there and one with the most reliable and innovative products.
If you remember, we talked about the detox mask from GlamGlow, a couple of Mondays ago, you can check here. If you do remember, I bought a set with all the GlamGlow masks, so this week I decided to try another one, the SuperMud Clearing Treatment.




Honestly, I bought the GlamGlow kit because of this mask, even not having a lot of breakouts I have some whiteheads because of my gluten problem and is rare to find a mask that claims to help with whiteheads (and not only blackheads as the majority), so I wanted to give it a try.


The Supermud is an acne treatment perfect for oily and co…

Sunday #5 - It's new and we want it...

Image
byARita Hello beauties,
Tomorrow is Monday and as always, I’m already a little bit sad. The weekend is so short and time passes so quickly. Three months and we are in Christmas! I can’t believe it. (Bear with me, I love Christmas – it’s my favorite time of the year!)
But this not why we are here. Today is still Sunday, so we are here to relax and see new things that we want to try (take this as a mental exercise, better than Yoga).
This week we wanted to try something new, so we picked a website and we only choose new things from that website. The winner for this week is Net-a-Porter!
Net-a-porter is my Achilles’ heel (I have many). The design is very appellative (but the prices not so) and the products are very beautiful and from good (and expensive) brands. I just bought one product on this website a long time ago and the order arrived very fast (as well very beautifully packaged).
So, with no more delays, here are our picks for this week…

3’ minute Beauty by Estee Lauder

Hello beauties,
A couple of months ago I think I made the best buy, I dare to say, of my entire year. I bought a kit from Estee Lauder with an eye repair cream and the double wear concealer for 10€ ($11,90). This kit is a limited edition and for what I saw, at the store that I bought, it was only for sale one month. As I said, this kit brings a miniature cream, the Advanced Night Repair Eye 5ml/ 0.17 oz. and the Double Wear Concealer 1.9ml/0.06 oz.


Comparing with the non-miniature, we’ll see that the advanced night eye has 0.5 oz. and costs $60.00 and the double wear concealer has 0.25 oz. and cost $28.00, with this numbers you can see that this was a very good deal! As you can see from the pictures, the Advance Night Repair eye cream looks very small, but do not kid yourself, this cream lasts a lot. I can tell you that I bought this almost three months ago and my jar is half full. And I use it every night! 

Besides the cream and the concealer, the packaging brought a leaflet with s…
