Vichy

 

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.

skinceuticals MINERAL RADIANCE UV DEFENSE SPF 50

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
