S'nonas Skin Care Cream Review

Hello beauties!

How are you?

I, for the last past month, am hooked by a Care Cream, as written in the package, that I have never seen before in shops or given it a second look if seen.

And that is a mistake we, consumers, often make. We are impressed by big campaigns, fancy new products and high prices, which are excellent of course, forgetting that there are other brands making quality products with equally good raw materials but less expensive.

One of those brands is, the new to me, S'nonas.

It is a Spanish brand by Arom S.A. 

Today I will talk to you about a cream that I first laid eyes on at Beauty Greece in Athens.

S'nonas Skin Care Cream 







This whitish glycerin based cream is so smooth and hydrating like very few I have tried in the past.
Especially now, during summer, vacation, sea, salt, this cream has proven to be an ideal skin savior. 




It has a thick slippery texture that surprisingly applies like a velvet dream.
You can feel the moisture penetrating your skin transforming it into a glossy, not greasy,  & healthy one.
Contains glycerin which provides intense hydration and protection to the sensitive skin.

It smells like cream & roses and the smell is slightly intense but to my surprise I do not mind at all. 

Its price is very low for the quality which makes it a great bargain!

You can check it at Lamar Hellas  or lamarhellas@yahoo.gr and ask for further information.

Have you tried this brand before? 

What do you think of it?

As always,

stay healthy & beautiful

Garnier Hydra Match Review

Hello beauties!

As promised here comes the last, at least for now, review on a brand new Garnier product.

I am talking about the new, lovely Garnier Hydra Match Moisturizers*



Aren’ t they adorable?

They come in these little plastic pots. Each color for a different type of skin need.

But let’s take them one by one.




 Hydra Match for Dry Sensitive Skin

As you can see from the photo this pink cream has a thick consistency that soothes and nourishes dry skin.

It contains camellia oil which keeps the skin soft for 24 hours.








Hydra Match for Normal/Combination Skin

It contains blue lotus extract and suits most skin types. 
While giving enough moisture, it keeps the levels on both dry and oily parts of your face.

It is ideal for a normal skin.








Hydra Match for Dull & Tired Skin

Well, I was very surprised by this formulation because I always thought that products giving "life" to dull skin equals with shine for my combination skin.
But after I tried this citrus fruit extract filled, gel like, cream on, I realized that it did give freshness to my skin without adding any extra shine.
I really liked it.





Hydra Match for Combination / Oily Skin

It has the lightest feeling, it absorbs really quickly, instantly mattifies the skin, prepping it for the foundation.
I thought I would find in this gel, my everyday moisturizing base before putting on my makeup but I didn't notice much of a difference. 
I like the feeling on my skin so I will keep using it and keep you updated!



They retail, here in Greece, at 6,49 euros which is amazing.

Simple and necessary things like moisturizing need alternatives.


So.....what do you think of these new moisturizers? 

Have you already given them a try? Will you?

As always,

stay healthy & beautiful

Neutrogena Shine Control Powder Review

Hello beauties!

Like many of you, I myself, am always on the hunt for a good setting powder that will keep the shine away from my carefully and with love made up face…!

I buy and try the ones I believe are the next best thing.


You probably remember my Rimmel Stay Matte Powder Review.

Well, the next on my list was Neutrogena Shine Control Powder.


This, as well, cannot be found in Greece so a friend shipped it from the US.

It comes in a sleek matte classic black packaging that contains the usual sponge.


It comes in one shade. This off whitey shade that you see above which is transparent.

It is a lightweight powder, that is very difficult to get cakey, and with a rice protein technology that is designed to absorb the excess oil and eliminate the shine immediately and hold it this way for at least 4-5 hours. 

It very much reminds me of blotting papers in a pot. 

It is perfect for touch ups because it does not distract your makeup.  

No smell, no breakouts, no pore clogging, no wrinkle enhancing.

I think we have a winner. At least for now! Before the next best come along!

I highly recommend that you try this powder, especially those of you with combination/oily skin.

It cost me around 10 euros.

If you have a favorite setting powder that does the work, please share the news with me!

As always,

stay healthy & beautiful

Inglot Haul, Swatches & Review

Hello my beauties!

I am here with a haul made quite some time ago.....! 

Those of you that follow me on Instagram you must know by now my love for Inglot Cosmetics.




I love the colours, the packaging, the quality, the prices, the variety but most of all I love its guts for competing equally a well known cosmetics company without overexposing themselves. 
They don't need to. 

Well, some time ago I went to their store in Chalandri, Athens, and did some shopping. 

Since then, I went back, of course, for more, but you have to wait the next haul post!

So this is what I bought.





Swatches from left:




matte # 340
matte # 388
# 325
# 320
# 459
# 457
# 460
# 361
# 356

And Lip Pencil # 24




The eyeshadows are so pigmented and have very good staying power!

So vibrant, easy blending and double the size of the usual eyeshadows out in the market.

I haven' t noticed any fall down which is awesome!

As for the Lip Pencil.....the words are not enough.
It is not waterproof nor drying.
It stays on your lips for hours with a slight touch up after 3-4 hours depending what you do! ;-)

It has a perfect nude pink colour, more to the pink, that suits well on a daytime makeup as well with a smokier one.

I am so very impressed & in love with Inglot Cosmetics that I dream working there!

The eyeshadows retail at around 5,50 euro and the lip pencil at 10 euro but with so many Sales they have you can stock like a maniac!

Crazy right?

Follow them on Inglot Greece Official facebook page to stay updated.

So have you tried them? 
Do you like them as much as I do?

As always 
stay healthy &  beautiful
