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?

October Beauty Haul

 

image

Changing seasons got me needing some new products and of course moving to another place with all of those sales and new things for me was exciting and my curiosity made me buy half of the stuff I am going to show you down below. This month I bought a couple of beauty products, most of them I am trying for a first time 🙂 so here they are:

image

Garnier SkinActive Micellar Water

I saw a couple of blog posts about it, mainly with positive reviews and I finished my old one, so I decided to give it a try! I use it once a day, it is part of my night routine. It is very gentle to my skin and it doesn’t dry it out. I feel my skin cleaner and fresher after, because it removes extra oils and the make up left. I really recommend it.

L`oreal Nude Magique BB Cream

I was looking for some very light foundation or a bb cream. The packaging is just so cute, pink-purple-silverish tones are so beautiful. This one is white like a cream and you can feel pigment capsules – extra small pieces, when you put it on it matches your skin tone. It is light and it has very nice smell. My skin is oily so I need to set it up with powder or it is going to creese.

Sheer & Shine Lipstick Essence

I was looking for one store, but I got the wrong way, so incidentally I am in front of a big nice store for cosmetics. Of course I decided to go in.. and I end up buying some Essence products, which happened to be on sale. I picked up this lipstick in shade 02 Cute Nude. The formula is nice, light and hydrating. I really like the feel but I don’t think the shade suits me, because it is very light pink nude. But definitely I will try some a little bit darker ones.

Essence Lipliner

Same story… I chose lipliner in shade 06 Satin Mauve. It is little bit purplish and usually I will never try it out. But in the store I couldn’t see the true colour so I was expecting something nude to go with the lipstick.. anyway I love that one. I like the formula and it is long lasting, so I am very happy with it.

Shampoo and Conditioner Provost

Franck Provost is something I never heard of.. I was thinking it is some italian brand but below the name is written Paris, so I am confused lol! Anyway I took Expert Nutrition which suppose to be repairing and reliving. I use it about 1 week now, and I can say it is pretty good. Considering also the very affordable price of about 6-7 euros for 750 ml, I can say it is a deal.

Neutrogena Nourishing Body Lotion with Nordic Berry

This was my last beauty buy for October. Neutrogena products turn out to be very difficult for me to find here in Italy… This body lotion is my favourite item from this haul. It is super hydrating, my skin is very dry during autumn and winter, but this lotion is definitely my solution! The formula is not greasy and it absorbs very quick. It has very soft light smell. I love it.

P.S: Do you use some of those products? Share with me your October`s best beauty buys!
