I’m going to try these now and will give you an update/review in a couple of weeks.

1) NEW! Vichy Idealia life serum

“A serum that leaves the skin instantly smoothed, plumped, fresh and soft. A radiance primer, enriched with golden and red pearls, for an instant ideal skin colour and unsurpassable luminosity and glow. Suitable for all skin types”

2) Vichy liftactiv retinol ha 0.2%

For every woman who wants intense correction on the look of deep vertical wrinkles, and reveal expressions that are younger, more positive in appearance.


I started using this product ┬ásome weeks ago but after a couple of days I put it aside as I found the texture very strange, like applying something dry yet watery on my face, and it seemed to have a mat effect which is the opposite of what I’m looking for.

This week however, as the temperature went up quite a bit, I looked around for a tinted moisturiser with spf and this was the first one I picked up from my drawer of a million creams (!) and thought I’d give it another chance. I had used a few drops of argan oil all over my face instead of a serum (after wash and toner) and combined with the argan oil and a light corrector cream, it turned out to be a perfect match – no feeling of dryness and voila’ SPF and light coverage!

“This weightless fluid, with 100% mineral filters, provides broad-spectrum UV protection, whilst the formulation enhances skin’s natural tone and boosts overall radiance”

beautiful moments

We had a great time in Sicily, quite an adventure :) We did the usual stuff, you know, eating our way through Sicilian pizzas and admiring the scenic landscape of Cefalu etc….but I still think the most laughable part was escaping a ‘wrongly’ booked B&B in Syracuse right after checking in from what we thought was going to be a cute little inn (although we never booked anything like it) only to find out all the advertising was insanely wrong. It was basically a far from cute place and we didn’t even give it a chance, so within the hour we ran past the owner of the place and dragged all our suitcases back to the car and checked in at a 4 star hotel around the corner. It was a nice hotel but after the other shaft it felt like luxury heaven ;)

Sicily feels a bit like travelling back in time but it was a well needed break and I’ve re-charged my batteries and it was nice to spend quality time with my boys <3
