My Rexaline Obsession

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I have been obsessed with Rexaline for years and years and I think it's the brand I have repurchased more over the years. 

I have tried almost every product from the Hydra Dose range but I seem to keep going back to these 3 over and over again.

The 22 Day Revolution Challenge


[ ENG / PT ]

I have always been very conscious about what I eat, yes I did indulge in a pizza or burger every now and then but the majority of days I always ate very healthy. 3/5 years ago I became a vegetarian and I felt so healthy ever since that I don't think I can ever go back to the way I felt when I eating meat/fish. My almost daily digestion and heartburn became a thing of the past and my chronic anemia has been at bay for nearly 3 years.

REVIEW Dermalogica Sheer Tint SPF20


If you've been following me for a while you'll know I like very natural looking makeup, I don't like heavy foundations, powdered faces, I like very light coverage and dewy skin look. A couple of weeks ago I got my hands on the newly formulated Dermalogica Sheer Tint* and have been wearing it every since.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS on the Pixi Glow Peel Pads



If you follow me on Instagram you may have noticed that I went to the Pixi store this morning as I was really curious about their new skincare line, wanting to try the whole range but having so many skincare products to trial now, I made up in my mind I would only leave that store with ONE product. I ended up buying 2, but one was a lipstick so it doesn't really matter :p

Carli Bybel - 14 Color Eyeshadow & Highlighter Palette



Youtuber Carli Bybel just released a new makeup palette with BH Cosmetics and for $12.50 (~£8) I had to get my hands on it, assuming the payment page actuallly finishes to process the payment, it's been loading for 5 minutes, probably because of Carli's 3 million subscribers trying to get their hands on it. Anyway if I do manage to pay for it and get it there will be a surprise for you my lovely readers, in the meantime, feel free to drool all over your keyboard with this beautiful palette! xx Vanessa

REVIEW Lush Ultrabland Facial Cleanser



It has been a long time since I last wrote here but life has been tough and I had to get grips with myself before I could sit down, have a cup of tea and actually write about something and that finally came. I have a lot of catching up to do so stay tune for my latest skincare/makeup updates. 

Today I'm reviewing the Lush Ultrabland Facial Cleanser.

My SPF Bundle







Summer is out there and I mean literally out there because here in London, today is very windy and is so cloudy you can't even see the sun, still we must use a sunscreen, so here are the ones that are currently hanging around my bathroom shelves:

REVIEW Indeed Labs - Hydraluron Moisture Boost Facial Serum



[PT / ENG]

Sempre que faço um teste de pele, o resultado é sempre o mesmo: desidratação extrema. Como tal ando sempre sempre à procura do melhor produto para manter a minha pele hidratada, uma tarefa que se torna mais dificil à medida que os anos vão passando. Como era de esperar, um dos primeiros produtos que comprei quando cheguei ao Reino Unido foi o afamado Hydraluron, muito amado por bloggers e não só. As expectativas eram grandes mas não tão grandes quanto foi o meu descontentamento com este produto.

REVIEW Missha Super Aqua - Water Supply Essence


[ PT / ENG ]

Há alguns anos que uso produtos de beleza Coreanos, muito antes desta loucura que sente no Ocidente. Há muita gente que diz que não usa porque as peles Asiáticas são diferentes das nossas mas eu acho que isso é conversa para outro post. Hoje venho falar da Water Supply Essence da Missha, um sérum hidratante que acabei hoje e que adorei usar, tanto que já encomendei outro.

REWIEW Kueshi Revitalizing Toner



[ PT / ENG ]

Sei que há pessoas que não acreditam em tónicos mas eu acredito e adoro um bom tónico, quer seja ele exfoliante, hidratante, revitalizante, etc, etc. Mas nem todos os tónicos foram criados da mesma maneira por isso tinha que haver um que eu não gostasse e calhou a este Tónico Revitalizante da Kueshi que veio com uma Glossybox, usei-o meia dúzia de vezes para perceber que não era para mim e só andou cá em casa tanto tempo para poder fazer review e finalmente pode deitá-lo fora.

To Prime Or Not To Prime


[ PT / ENG ]

Eu tenho uma relação amor-ódio com primers. Às vezes uso e gosto, outras vezes uso o mesmo e detesto, umas vezes fazem a maquilhagem parecer super perfeita e outras vezes os mesmos fazem a maquilhagem escorrrer pela cara abaixo. Não os uso todos os dias pois acredito que uma pele bem cuidada e hidratada não precisa de primer, mas tenho aqui imensos em casa e tenho que os usar. Estes são so mais usados:

REVIEW Spiezia Organics Rose & Vanilla Face Oil


[ PT / ENG ]

Hoje trago-vos os Rose & Vanilla Face Oil da Spiezia Organics*: "Um óleo de dia que promete regular a produção de sebo e proteger a pele das agressões externas e da maquilhagem".

REVIEW Clarins Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner



[ PT / ENG ]

Finalmente comprei uma maquina fotográfica decente para poder voltar a escrever no blog. Ainda tenho que aprender a mexer nela e estas fotos foram apenas o primeiro teste mas acho que até correu bastante bem e aproveitei para fazer review deste produto que estou a usar há uns 5/6 meses. 

O Tónico Esfoliante Suave da Clarins está na minha lista de favoritos desde a primeira aplicação! "Única pela sua frescura e suavidade, esta loção esfoliante com ácidos de frutos muito suaves aplica-se simplesmente com um algodão. Elimina da pele tudo o que a torna baça e deixa-a lisa, suave e luminosa."

Evening Skincare Routine



I have a very strict skincare routine because I think it's the first step for perfect-glowing skin. My routine changes all the time as I adjust it daily to my skin's needs. At the moment my skin is feeling very tight and dehydrated and this is what I have been using AFTER removing my makeup:

Empties - Moisturizers





This year has been really good for me as I am trying to use a lot of my products, I have done an inventory of my beauty stash and I must say I am embarrassed of how many things I have so my major project for this year is use up as much as possible and buy as little as possible. I am doing really well, and started the ones that were almost empty to get rid of all the junk in my bathroom. 
Here is a first batch:
