REVIEW Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water



ENG - PT


I'm not to keen on micellar waters, for whatever reason I didn't get the hype. Maybe it's because my skin is a bit dehydrated and I always prefer oil or milky make-up removers to remove my make-up. Also I can't stand the idea of only using this to cleanse my skin. I always always double cleanse, always had, always will. I've tried using only this to remove makeup and cleanse, followed with my skincare routine, next morning I was full of breakouts and clogged pores. I need a proper cleanse every night. "You get what you pay for" and don't expect great skin when you cleanse it only with micellar water.

REVIEW O Boticario Make B. Rio Sixties Creamy Lipstick











This product is only available in Portugal and Brazil so won't be translating at this time. 

Mais um batom d'O Boticário que me conquistou o coração, desta vez o escolhido foi o Ameixa Leblon da nova colecção Rio Sixties. É um Burgundy assim a fugir para o rosa escuro, o subtom é amarelo e azul, fazendo com que seja perfeito para todos os tons de pele. Tem uma boa cobertura e um acabamento acetinado, o facto de ser bastante cremoso, faz com que seja muito confortável e hidratante nos lábios.

REVIEW Ina Crystals White Gold Glow Face Wash



ENG - PT

I tend to avoid products named "face wash" because usually they are too drying and too stripping for the skin and I was very reluctant to try this product because of that exactly. But I tried and thank God for that because it's an amazing cleanser.

Estou completamente rendida a este batom d'O Boticário! Adoro tudo, a cor, a durabilidade, a hidratação a cobertura! É mesmo batom coral perfeito para a Primavera, especialmente nestes dias cinzentos que se fazem sentir aqui em Londres. Quem já experimentou?

REVIEW Schwarzkopf Bonacure Oil Miracle Light Finishing Treatment



ENG - PT

This Finishing Treatment was one of the last year's best buys! It came with a magazine and it cost me only 12€ (around £9) and it completely broke my heart when I broke the bottle when I moved to London. I managed to transfer the product another bottle without wasting to much and luckily enough I had taken photos before I moved and was able to review it!

Top 3 Blushes


ENG - PT

Most women can't leave the house without mascara, I can't face other people without a few swipes of blush across my cheeks. Blush as the power of lift up our complexion like no other makeup product and it's an absolute must have for me. There are days (when may skin is behaving in my favor) that I wear nothing but blush. Here are my top 3:

REVIEW Nativa Spa Monoi & Argan Hair Treatment Mask



PT - ENG

Ultimamente não tenho tido queixas nenhumas a nivel de pele por isso tenho concentrado os meus esforços em tantar manter o cabelo saudável, o que se tem mostrado uma tarefa um tanto dificil uma vez que a água aqui em Londres é muito calcária e seca muito o cabelo, tenho usado e abusado das máscaras e óleos capilares e uma das minhas preferidas é esta de Monoi e Argan d'O Boticário (12.99€).

REVIEW Nativa Spa Plum Moisturizing Bath


PT - ENG

Quando começei a usar este hidratante de banho estava bastante séptica, já tinha experimentado o da Nivea que se mostrou uma experiência bastante desagradável, o da Nivea é bastante gorduroso e não sinto que hidrate a pele, sinto que a "gordura" fica à superficie da pele, este é mais leve mas sinto que cuida muito melhor da pele.

REVIEW Nativa Spa Pitaya Exfoliating Sugar Scrub

Spring Skincare Essentials

Spring is my favorite Season of the year. Flowers blossom and so does our skin.

REVIEW The Body Shop Vitamin-E Overnight Serum-In-Oil

ENG - PT

I have been a facial oil lover for a long time now. My first facial oil was Caudalie's Vinopure Balancing Concentrate (unfortunately it was discontinued) I was so frightened to put oil on my oily skin that I remember waking up 10 times during the night to touch my skin and see I had any breakouts, I was so amazed when I woke up in that first morning with such a beautiful skin and a sudden love for facial oils. I've tried quite a few and today I'll be talking about one of my latest finds and one of my favorite oils!

Beauty Books


ENG - PT

I really want to know more about skin and skincare so I went on a little shopping spree on Amazon yesterday and after a little research this is what I got. I didn't spend more then £15 with shipping included on all of them so you may want to take a look for yourself. Do you usually ready books about beauty? Which ones do you recommend?
...
Quero aprender mais sobre pele e skincare por isso fui à amazon e comprei alguns livros sobre o assunto. Ainda comprei alguns mas apanhei uma promo qualquer e ficaram todos por cerca de 15 libras já com os portes incluidos. Se tiverem interesse, deixo-vos aqui os links. Ainda tenho muitos na minha wishlist, nomeadamente do Dr Brand e Dr Perricone mas eram um bocado caros por isso primeiro vou ler estes. Costumam ler livros sobre beleza? Quais me aconselham?

Review Avene Tolerance Extreme Cleansing Lotion

I never really had sensitive skin, I've had my share of oiliness, dehydration, parchiness, but I've never experienced any sensitivity. Until now... I feel my skin blotchy in some areas and it's quite red around my nose and I had to adopt a few measures to try and calm the beast down, you can ready my review on the Avène's Soothing Moisture Mask HERE, but my biggest problem was cleansing.....

REVIEW Avene Soothing Moisture Mask


ENG / PT

Facial masks are probably my favorite item in my skincare routine, I love that they deliver amazing results in just 10-15mins. Like all of you, I'm obsessed with clear skin, I love a good deep cleansing mask but not as much as I love hydrating masks as they can leave my dull dehydrated skin look simply amazing in just a few minutes...

REVIEW Clinique Take The Day Off - Cleansing Milk


ENG - PT

Some people buy products because of the packaging, some for the smell, some for the price; well I usually buy products with interesting names like "Take the day off" and I bought this at a time of my life where I though an expensive product had to be a good product. - Luckily for my wallet, I've changed that.

REVIEW Lierac Hydra-Chrono+ Gentle Soothing Cream


ENG - PT 

Lately my skin has been a little sensitive, it's probably a combination of all the makeup doing and undoing in my job and the bipolarity of the London weather. Anyway I went trough my beauty stash to trying to find something soothing and ended up finding this cream that I bought quite some time ago on some sale.
