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.

Garnier Tissue Masks Review

If you have seen my Garnier Haul you know I got two tissue masks – Moisture & Aqua Bomb and Moisture & Freshness  a couple of weeks ago. So I finally got to use both of the face masks! 🙂

Sheet Masks

Tissue Masks are inspired by Asian beauty and they are so popular at the moment. First I heard about those type of masks one year ago, I found Sephora has sheet masks and that is how I tried for a very first time. I really like the idea of the sheet masks because they are so easy to use – just anywhere, any time. Asian sheet masks are usually for a daily use, such as Sephora ones. Garnier Tissues Masks are worth 1 week of hydrating serum, so they are stronger and not for a daily use.

Garnier Moisture + Aqua Bomb Tissue Mask

The fabric of the mask is 100% natural cellulose fiber tissue so it can soak the hydrating serum and to be easy to place. The serum is worth one week of hydrating which is really a moisture bomb. It contains hyaluronic acid and naturally-derived ingredients. Pomegranate is known as a antioxidant and helps for repairing.

This mask is perfect for dehydrated skin, it is so rich.  I spent one week in Norway and when I came back my skin was quite dry and I felt it dehydrated so I decided to give a try to Garnier Moisture Bomb. My skin felt amazing after trying it. When I removed the mask there was a lot of hydrating serum left and I massaged my face till it absorbs it. On the next day my skin looked amazing! I skipped the day cream because my skin is on the oily side. For once in a while I think this mask is great! I recommend it especially if you have dry skin.

Garnier Moisture + Freshness Tissue Mask

Apart from the hydrating serum, this mask contains also extract of green tea which is perfect for normal to combination skin types. Green tea also tightens the pores balance the oily skin, it was the main reason I got this mask. It is also free of oils so it is not greasy. The tissue mask has a cooling effect which makes you enjoy it even more. This mask leaves the skin fresher, softer and more hydrated.  I definitely love it too!

The packaging 

The packaging is very pretty – light metallic colours. You can make a gift set with some of the other products of the range. It is also very easy to get it with you on a trip so you can have same relaxing -me – time over your holiday.

The application:

  1. Unfold and place to clean skin.
  2. Remove the blue film.
  3. Leave on for 15 minutes and relax!
  4. Remove the mask and gently massage.

The application is so easy and quick because it doesn’t require rinsing. The tissue mask should be unfold and placed directly on the face which guarantees maximum impact. The skin is able to absorb all the hydrating serum and as a result it will leave the skin looking youthful, smooth, softer and hydrated.

The tissue mask is quite big and for sure it will cover your face as it comes to the eyes, nose and mouth it wasn’t difficult to place the cuts. Once I put the mask on my face it felt a little bit heavy but when you peal off the blue film it feels better. I really like the smell and the feeling while wearing the mask.

After both of the tissue masks my skin was very hydrated, soft and smooth. It looked and felt amazing. I like those masks and I will definitely buy them again.

P.S: Have you tried those masks? What are your thoughts?

Garnier Haul

Last month I bought a couple of beauty stuff  so I decided to share with you my first impressions in this mini Garnier Haul.

garnier_xoxogabrielle1

First thing I got is this gift set containing two products – Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water for sensitive skin and Garnier Essentials Hydrating Care Day Cream. I needed both so it was a great deal for me!

garnier_xoxogabrielle2

I already have been using the Micellar Water for the last couple of months but mine finished so I repurchased it.  And I am very happy with it, I have tried some different ones, but so far Garnier`s one is my favourite. It cleans and removes make up and dirt, it leaves my skin fresh and smooth without any extra oils.

garnier_xoxogabrielle3

The second part of the small gift set was Garnier Essentials Hydrating Care Day Cream. It is for normal and combination skin. That is my first time using Garnier face cream. I like it because it absorbs very fast in my skin and it smells very good. As a result my skin is hydrated but after a couple of hours it gets a little bit shiny and oily. So I am not sure if I will buy it again.

I also got two face masks – Moisture + Aqua Bomb Tissue Face Mask and Moisture + Freshness Tissue Face Mask.

garnier_xoxogabrielle4Moisture + Aqua Bomb Tissue Face Mask is super hydrating and repulsing. It suppose to hydrates intensively,  replumps and boosts radiance. It contains extract of grenade, hyaluronic acid and hydrating serum, perfect for dehydrated skin.

Moisture + Freshness Tissue Face Mask is super hydrating and purifying. This one hydrates intensively, refreshes and tightens pores. The extract of green tea, hyaluronic acid and hydrating serum makes are suitable for normal to combination skin types.

Those two I haven’t tried yet but as soon as I do, I will do a review on them, so stay tuned!

P.S: Have you tried some go those products? Do you have any new beauty favourites?

L`Oreal Detox & Brighten Pure Clay Mask Review

One of the best drugstore brands you can get your hands on is L`Oreal. The quality of their products is amazing, the packaging is always very pretty and they are very affordable. So in this post I will share my latest love – L`Oreal Detox Pure Clay Mask.

 L`Oreals Pure Clay Masks are three:

loreal_xoxogabrielle

One is detox & brighten mask, one is exfoliating & refining and the other one is purify & mattify mask.

My favourite face mask lately  is L`Oreal Detox & Brighten Pure Clay Mask (the black mask).  I haven’t try the other two but I will definitely give them a try.

lorealclaymask_xoxogabrielle

First, lets talk about the packaging.. The mask comes in a glass jar with very pretty white-green top. It looks very luxurious and expensive. Here in Italy you can find it in every drugstore and it costs between 10-12 euro. You can find it also here : L`Oreal Online. The price is good, considering it is 50ml and it is very good quality.

Ingredients

All three masks contain 3 pure clays: Kaolin, Montmorillonite and Ghassoul. They are suitable for all skin types.

  • Kaolin is a highly effective natural clay, known to absorb impurities and excess sebum;
  • Montmorillonite – rich in minerals, a clay recognised for helping to eliminate imperfections;
  • Ghassoul is a pure clay, highly concentrated in minerals,  renowned to help clarify complexion. Instant and lasting, visible results . Immediately after the use the skin is purer and clearer. After one week: the skin feels fresher, and more luminous, skin can breathe and is visibly transformed.

Application

You need to apply an even layer on clean and dry skin. I have been loving the smell, it is amazing – very fresh and clean. But for some people it can be too strong. The mask is very thick, the consistency is heavy and creamy but the application is easy and it absorbs very quick into the skin.

After applying leave for 10-15 minutes, the mask dries quite fast but even if you leave it for a little bit longer it still washes off easily. L`Oreal recommend to use it 3 times a week, I use it 1-2 times a week.

I think this mask is very good for people with oily skin, struggling with blackheads and acne. My skin is oily and I really like it. It makes it clearer, brighter and softer, doesn’t dry out and doesn’t leave “the stretched” feeling. I would love to try the other two as well.

P.S: Have you tried any of L`Oreal Pure Clay Masks? Do you have another favourite face masks? 

……….

Реших да ви представя един от моите фаворити в грижата за кожата – L`Oreal Detox & Brighten Pure Clay Mask. Маската е от най-новите продукти на Лореал и се предлага в три разновидности: детоксикираща, почистваща и пилинг.

Ще ви споделя мнението си за L`Oreal Detox & Brighten Pure Clay Mask (сиво – черната маска), от която съм изключително доволна. Определено смятам да пробвам и останалите две.

Опаковката

Маската е 50мл и се предлага в красиво стъклено бурканче  със зелено-бяла капачка. Това гарантира използването на абсолютно цялото количество. В Италия, маската може да се намери лесно, във всеки козметичен магазин, на цена 10-12 евро. Разбира се, можете да я намерите и онлайн: L`Oreal Online.

Състав

И трите маски от серията съдържат глина и са подходящи за всички типове кожа. В състава им има още:

  • Каолин – натурална съствка, почистваща порите в дълбочина и абсорбираща излишният себум;
  • Montmorillonite – глина, която е богата на минерали и помага за намаляване на несъвършенствата;
  • Ghassoul – глина, която почиства, освежава и избелва кожата.

Употреба

Маската се нанася на равен слой на почистено и подсушено лице. Консистенцията е много гъста, не е водниста, но въпреки това се нанася лесно. Попива в кожата бързо и изсъхва. Ароматът на маската е много приятен и свеж, но е доста силен.

След нанасяне, маската изсъхва на лицето за около 10-15 минути. Отмива се лесно и не изсушава прекалено кожата. Аз използвам маската 1-2 пъти седмично, за най-добри резултати е препоръчително 3 пъти.

Резултати

Още след първата употреба, ефектът върху кожата ми е осезаем, усеща се много по-чиста, мека и свежа. Определено съм изключително доволна и бих закупила и другите две маски от серията.

P.S: Вие използвали ли сте някоя от маските от тази серия? Какви са впечатленията ви?
