Halloween Wishlist

Since it is almost time for one of the best holidays – Halloween, I decided for one more time to cooperate with Rosegal  – on their website you can find a lot of fun stuff and some great inspiration for Halloween. So I decided to create my wishlist.

For my first look I chose this witch costume and I think dark eye makeup, very pale face and some dark or red lipstick will make the look complete. Like you can see you can choose either to show your hair or not to so it doesn’t require any special styling.

And the second look I really liked is just a simple outfit which you can wear if you aren’t into the costume thing. I can see myself wearing this combo on a party or also during the day just for fun. The first piece is this gorgeous midi-skirt  and this cute black and white corset . I prefer to complete this look with flat shoes and a small bag. I think some red lips and black eye-liner will be just a perfect fit.

P.S: What is your idea for Halloween 2017? Share with me in the comment section down below.

L`oreal Pure Clay Illuminating Cleansing Gel Review

loreal_pure_clay_xoxogabrielle

After I have been using L`oreal Pure Clay Detox Face Mask, I was very excited to try out some of the face washes from the same line. Again they are three:

  • L`oreal Pure Clay Glow Scrub (the red one) – 3 pure clays + red argae – cleanses, brightens and exfoliates;
  • L`oreal Pure Clay Purity Wash (the green one) – 3 pure clays + eucalyptus – cleanses, purifies and mattifies;
  • L`oreal Pure Clay Detox Wash (the black one) – 3 pure clays + charcoal – cleanses, removes impurities and gives glow.

I decided to try the black one L`oreal Pure Clay Detox Wash because I really liked the face mask.

“Missing your skin’s glow? Pure Clay Illuminating Cleansing Gel from L’Oreal Paris makes skin feel fresher, brighter and shinier. The cleansing gel is enriched with a combination of three specially selected types of clay and coal for deep cleansing. Dirt, impurities and makeup are removed so skin can experience radiant glow.”

Packaging 

I really like the packaging, it is easy to use and to store. It is 150 ml which makes it too big for a hand luggage but you can always use the small travel-sized cosmetic containers if needed. The colour is also nice, it looks like a good quality product.

 Texture 

The colour of the gel is black, the texture is very light but a little bit goes for all of my face. I put a small dot of the gel on my Face Brush and it makes a lot of foam. I think this cleansing gel will last a long time. I really enjoy the smell, it is the same like the smell of the face mask.

Ingredients:

loreal_pure_clay_xoxogabrielle3

 3 pure clays + charcoal

  • Kaolin – A highly effective clay, known to absorb impurities and excess sebum;
  • Montmorillonite – Rich in minerals, a clay recognised for helping to eliminate imperfections;
  • Ghassoul – A pure clay highly concentrated in minerals, renowned to help clarify complexion;
  • Charcoal – Acts like a magnet to “draw out” impurities.

My opinion 

I definitely love this face wash, I had tried  a lot of different ones and my number one is La Roche Effaclar Cleansing Gel. I can say that L`oreal Pure Clay Detox Wash can compare with it. It is a very good quality product and it is very affordable.   I enjoy the smell and the result afterwards – my skin is clean, soft and smooth, the feeling is great!

P.S: Have you tried some of the L`oreal Pure Clay Face Wash Gels?

June Favourites

I am in love with this season, it is just my favourite time of the year. The sun is shinning, the skin gets darker, the hair gets lighter.   Pure happiness is to sit somewhere watching the sunset and the sea. During this time of the year I don’t use a lot of makeup, but I definitely try to stick to a good skincare and hair routine. I tried a couple of new products and I really loved those ones:

Face Wash

I bought those two products – L`oreal Skin Expert Pure Clay Illuminating  Cleansing Gel and Garnier Fresh Clarifying Wash with Green Tea. I was really excited to try the first one because I have been using the clay face mask from the same brand. I love both of those face washes and I use them everyday. If you want to read more about them let me know in the comment section down below.

Take Care of Your Hair 

I got the chance to try out Moroccan Oil Extra Volume Shampoo and Conditioner, and I really like them. They make my hair very soft, smooth and light. I like the smell and the texture isn’t oily or heavy. I want to repurchase the real size products.

Cute Nails

I got a couple of new nail polishes since now I decided to take a small break from the gel-nail polishes. I really like those coral/ watermelon colours.

Bronzing powder 

A must-have in my summer makeup bag! This one is from Essence –  Sun Club Matt Bronzing Powder. It is in shade 02 Sunny.

Grazia Bulgaria & Golden Tears from Mastic SPA

may_favourites_xoxogabrielle2

When I was back at home I got the new Grazia Bulgaria which came with a little Eye Cream – Golden Tears from Mastic SPA. I have read a lot of different reviews saying that this one isn’t the original product. Anyway I use it for the last two – three weeks, and I am pretty happy with it, so it is one of my favourites for May.

Hair Crystal Oil – Bio Pharma

may_favourites_xoxogabrielle3

The new – old favourite Argan Oil. I have used this product before and I really like it. I put it on my hair after shower and it makes it easy to comb and to manage, and of course last but not least it smells amazing.

Sleek Make Up Matte Me

may_favourites_xoxogabrielle4

This is my super extra favourite product for the last month. I have seen this all over Instagram and I was curious to try it out. I got Sleek Make Up Matte Me Ultra Smooth Lip Cream during my stay in Malta. The shade I chose is Bitter Sweet but I would love to try all of them as well as the eyeshadow palettes.

Liz Earle Nourishing Botanical Body Cream

may_favourites_xoxogabrielle5

Liz Earle is a British cosmetics brand, they have a huge range of body, hair and make up products. Good quality and the packaging is nice. This body lotion hydrates and soothes the skin, it also smells very good.

Schwarzkopf Got2B Straightening Spray 

may_favourites_xoxogabrielle6

I got this hair spray by Schwarzkopf a long time ago but I started using it a little bit more often lately. It is for heat protection and it helps you to keep your hair straight for a little bit longer. I really like it because it makes my hair thicker and it looks stronger.

Book Sometimes I lie – Alice Feeney

may_favourites_xoxogabrielle7

I got this book Sometimes I Lie from the airport in Malta. I really like it so far and I am still reading it. It tells the story of a woman who is in a coma. To be honest it got me because of the cover and the tittle 🙂 Well.. I guess we all lie sometimes…

P.S:  Have you tried some of those products? Share with me your current favourites, I would love to try them out!
