La Roche -Posay Effaclar Review

Hello my beauties!

How are you? I hope the breeze the last few days relaxed you beacause hot days are coming!

Today I am going to talk to you about two products I tried for the first time. One old and classic and one new and fantastic. 
La Roche-Posay Effaclar Gel Moussant & La Roche Posay Effaclar Mat.

1. Effaclar Moussant Gel
    Purifying foaming gel for oily sensitive skin 

My skin is combination with oily T-zone and summer things get worse. I am always on the hunt for a really good cleansing gel and a very good moisturiser that will hydrate my skin but keep it mat and beautiful. And, girls, I think I found them. 
I have been trying them the last 5 days, in a sample I got from the pharmacy, and I am really happy, especially with the moisturiser, because that is one of the hardest thing to find. But let's start one by one.

I am pretty sure you all know Effaclar Moussant Gel. I did too but somehow I never got to buy it. 
It feels really gentle on my skin, clearing all the makeup at the end of the day and refreshing my skin in the morning. It eliminates impurities and excess sebum leaving the skin clean and fresh without feeling it dry like many cleansing gels for oily skin do. The thing that we have oily skin does not mean that we need to dry it out, we just have to balance it and Effaclar Moussant Gel felt to my skin that way.
Soap-free - Alcohol-free - Colorant-free - Paraben free.

2. Effaclar Mat
    Sebo-Regulating Moisturiser, Anti-Shine, Anti-Enlanrged Pores

This is a new moisturiser added to the Effaclar family. Moisturizes and mattifies the skin immediately. After 5 days of use my skin is refined, pores are tightened and sebum production slowed down.
When applied you feel your skin moisturised  but at the same time so soft and almost like powdery as the moisturiser sets. you can apply you foundation just seconds later and trust me it is an excellent makeup base. It is almost like a moisturising primer!
I am really excited with this moisturiser as it is what I have been looking for. A light moisturiser for my skin, especially now at summer, but that really moistures my skin and not drying out. And of course an excellent base for my makeup as I don 't want to put extra stuff on my face.

Well, this is my review on Effaclar Moussant Gel & Effaclar Mat. Have you tried one of them? Want to share other secrets on oily skin?

Stay healthy & beautiful

My Bronzing Powders

Hello my beauties!

I hope you are well even though the temperature is trying to kill us!

Anyway, today I will talk to you about bronzing powders, one of my most favourite items ever since I discovered it.
It is something about the healhy glow that sun gives us, which unfortunately it is the exact opposite, that makes us want to have it all year long. But even in summer when we all get some colour, we always try to intensify it! I am telling you. Bronzing Powders are sent to us by the Sun himself!

Below I will show you the ones in my make up case right now and of course my Bronzing Powders Wish List. Let's start.

1. H&M Bronzing Powder, Face and Body Bronzer

This is the bronzer I reach out first every day. It is hard to believe it as it's a low price cosmetic line from a clothes store but it really works. It is not too intense so you can build it up. It has a staying power that wil surprise you and the colour suites every skintone except from the too dark. 
I have it for almost a year, I use it every day and as you can see it is like it is brand new. It lasts forever. 
I would give it a go if I ere you.
price approx. 6 euros

2. Clinique Superbalanced Powder Bronzer in bronzed 1

The first bronzer I ever got was a Clinique one so when I was sent the new bronzer I was thrilled. 
As you can see it is compressed inside and as soon as you twist it, fresh bronzing powder is released in the amount you need for one time.
As the rest Superbalanced line products, this powder claims to mentain the skin's humidity while controling the excess oil.
The only thing you need to take notice is that you have to apply it carefully and with confident motions as it tends to leave patches otherwise.
price approx. 38.50 euros

3. Face of Australia Blush in Terra

A while ago I took part to a Beauty Swap where we were matched to a beauty blogger from all over the world and we would exchange beauty products from our country. My match was Megan from Australia.
Among the things she sent me, view post here, was this gorgeous blush in a sweet pinkish terracota colour. 
I love it. It fits perfect my fair medium skintone.
The brush picks up a lot of product so I have to be sure that I tap the brush before starting applying.

4. Gosh Bronzing Shimmer Brush in 102

I think you will all agree with me when I say that a shimmer bronzing powder is essential in our make up bag!
Of course I do not use it everyday but when I am doing a special coctail's night out I put on this powder and the whole bar is at my feet! no kidding.
My sister bought this shimmer bronzing powder from her trip in Ireland and I thank her for that. I have to be careful when applying it though as it is tooooo shimmer and the first time I tried it on I looked like a discoball. But as soon as I got the hand of it I became the Disco Queen!

And as for my Bronzing Powders Wish List?

Guerlain Terracotta Light Sheer Bronzing Powder

Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel Moisturising Bronzing Powder

Physicians Formula Bronze Booster Glow Season to Season Bronzer

So that is all for Bronzing Powders. At least for now!

Which ones are your favourites?
Which ones do you crave?

Stay healthy & beautiful

Clinique Chubby Stick

Hello my beauties!

Ελπίζω να είστε καλά και χαρούμενοι.

Σήμερα θα σας παρουσιάσω ένα απο τα αγαπημένα μου προιόντα, που πλέον δε λείπει από τη τσάντα μου, αλλά πρώτα σας έχω μια ερώτηση.
Πόσες από εσάς μπορείτε να ζήσετε χωρίς το lip balm σας;
Εγω δεν είμαι σίγουρα μία από αυτές! 
Βέβαια τα τελευταία χρόνια αναζητώ όλο και πιο πολύ το χρώμα στα χείλη μου και προσπαθούσα να βρώ κάτι που να συνδυάζει και την ενυδάτωση που τόσο την έχω ανάγκη αλλά και το χρώμα που με κάνει να νιώθω όμορφη.

Ε λοιπόν σας έχω νέα! Το βρήκα και είναι το νέο

Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturising Lip Colour*

και οι νέες αποχρώσεις του για το καλοκαίρι!

Θα σας διαβάσω λίγα από το δελτίο τύπου.

"Η σύνθεσή του χρησιμοποιεί ένα ειδικό μείγμα από βούτυρο, έλαια και αντιοξειδωτικά που βοηθούν στην προστασία και τη φροντίδα των χειλιών με άμεση ενυδάτωση που διαρκεί. Εμπλουτισμένο με Shea Butter, Mango Seed Butter και Jojoba Seed Oil, προσφέρει μια πλούσια ενυδάτωση σε ένα στικ αφήνοντας τα χείλη απαλά και λεία.

Το must-have για κάθε γυναίκα:
Σε μια παιχνιδιάρικη συσκευασία ενός στίκ, η σύνθεσή του παρέχει χρώμα που διαρκεί και τέλεια κάλυψη. Για να το εφαρμόσετε, απλά γυρίστε τη βάση για να εμφανιστεί περισσότερο προϊόν και γυρίστε πάλι πίσω για να κλείσετε. Μην βγείτε έξω από το σπίτι χωρίς αυτό!"

 Δοκιμασμένo να μην Προκαλεί Αλλεργίες.  100% Χωρίς Άρωμα.  

Από τη στιγμή που το δοκίμασα, δεν έχω βάλει κάτι άλλο στα χείλη μου. Εκεί που πάντα είχα δυο τρία lip balms στη τσάντα μου, τώρα απλά έχω ένα δυο Clinique Chubby Sticks, ένα σε απαλή απόχρωση και ένα σε πιο έντονη για πιο βραδινές εμφανίσεις.
Ενυδατώνει τα χείλη μου ενώ ταυτόχρονα τους δίνει ένα απαλό χρώμα!

Οι αγαπημένες μου αποχρώσεις που πλέον δε μπορώ να ζήσω χωρίς, είναι οι εξής.

απόχρωση mighty mimosa

 απόχρωση oversized orange

απόχρωση curvy candy

Οι νέες 8 αποχρώσεις θα είναι διαθέσιμες από τον Ιούλιο 2012 και η τιμή του είναι 21,90 ευρώ.

Αν ήμουνα στη θέση σας, θα έτρεχα αμέσως να το αγοράσω! Δε θα το μετανιώσετε! Απεναντίας δε θα μπορείτε να το αποχωριστείτε!

Πως σας φαίνονται;
Είστε και εσείς lip balm addicts που ψάχνετε το κάτι παραπάνω σε αυτά;

Περιμένω με αγωνία τα σχόλιά σας.

Stay healthy & beautiful
