Getting ready for Valentines Day

Even though Valentines Day has become so commercialised and you can (and should) certainly celebrate your love for your special someone any day of the year; it’s sometimes nice to make that extra effort and get all romantic. My partner and I don’t necessarily celebrate Feb 14, however this year I decided to go all out and have a bit of fun with it. It will be a relatively quiet evening, spent at home with a lovely homecooked meal, candles and lots of kisses! View Post

Self Care Sunday

imageProduct review: Garnier Skin Active Matcha + Kaolin Face Mask

This paraben-free face mask combines Matcha Tea and Kaolin Clay in a creamy texture aimed at purifying, refreshing, mattifying and cleaning the skin.

When I applied the mask I felt a tingling sensation in some places on my face which made me worry that it was too intense and that it could be damaging. However, once the tingling subsided, the mask was as comfortable as any other clay mask. The smell is pleasant but not too overpowering of Matcha.

It took quite a while to rinse off even though I don’t think the layer I applied was too thick.  My face felt refreshed and definitely clean and clear. It appeared mattified and my moisturiser absorbed easily. After an hour or so, I did have some itchy patches on my cheek, so I added more moisturiser and hope it won’t be dry in the coming days.

All in all, it was a nice mask to use, though I will wait to see if there are any longer-lasting benefits as promised on the packaging.

Have you tried this mask yet? Have you experienced any side effects?

Happy Sunday

Most used beauty products of 2018

2018 was a year of lots of makeup newness for me, so many new and fantastic products and also networking with amazing bloggers and Instagrammers in Switzerland and globally. My beauty highlight was seeing Jeffree Star at the launch of his line here in Switzerland. I didn’t get to meet him but I got to watch him while meeting those who got tickets; he was kind, friendly and of course, absolutely beautiful. Even though I didn’t wear makeup as often as I would have liked, I did have a few go-to products that I used regularly: View Post
