Drunk Elephant is a brand I’ve noticed about a year ago but did not try until recently. Mostly because I’ve never heard about it before and because of the price tag which runs from $52 for Hydration gel and up to $90 for Night Serum. There is also soap bars for $28 and lip moisturizer which was the first product I bought from this brand. The gel was an impulse purchase actually that turned out to be one of my favorite products. Something I now proudly display on my dressing table. read more

Summer beauty essentials

Summer is the perfect time to relax and slack on your beauty routine. You definitely can do it once in awhile but taking care of your face, body and hair is still very important. Especially since you spend more time outside than usual soaking up that beautiful weather. It is not even that hard really since there are so many cool new products and brands to try. Like a beauty junkie like me needs another reason!

SPF

It’s been said and done so many times – USE YOUR SPF! Although SPF face lotions/moisturizers/BB & CC creams, etc. should be in your skin routine year round it is very important to use it in summer since you get so much more sun exposure during the season. Sun damage is number one reason for premature aging, so make SPF cream your friend. Find the one that works for you best and don’t forget to reapply. read more

5 mistakes you make that damage your skin

2

We all have few bad habits we wish we didn’t have that damage our skin. We know that smoking or keeping your makeup on at night is bad but sometimes our bad habits are not that obvious and that’s the type of habits I want to talk about today.

TOUCHIING YOUR FACE WITH YOUR HANDS

Picking at your face or acne is one of the worst things you can do to your face but you know that already. What I want to point out is that just resting your face on your hands while you are daydreaming or reading something on your laptop or falling asleep at boring meeting is equally bad for your skin. You don’t wash your hands after each time you pick up your phone to check Instagram feed, right? Our phones are the dirtiest things. Well if you think about it it does make sense – we take it with us everywhere (and I mean EVERYWHERE). So all those germs end up on our faces and cause inflammation which is a real stress for your skin. Well I don’t wash my hands after each time I pick up my phone either but I have a pretty solid “no touching my face” rule unless I am washing off my makeup of applying it. It did take some practice because I am one of those people who rub their forehead while thinking intensively (like right now) but I did kick my bad habit in the end. read more

Fake it till you make it | St. Tropez Self Tan

5-1

To be completely honest I’ve only tried self tan once before so St. Tropez  was my second experience with fake tans. Being a not-such-a-big-fan-of-tan I’ve never really stressed over getting a little darker for summer but being a blogger changes you a lot making you try different things you otherwise would not try. Which I am totally fine with. No complaining here. I’ve chosen St. Tropez because I’ve heard lots of good reviews about this brand plus the brand name definitely caught my attention (which figures – anything French and I’ll buy it) although the only French about this brand is the name. It is a UK brand established in 1996. read more

Current skincare routine (Morning)

I’ve already talked about my current night skin routine here, today I want to talk about my morning routine. As I was saying in the night skincare post your skin needs different products since its functions are a little different depending on the time of the day. On top of cleansing and moisturizing you skin needs protection from sun and pollution during the day. It also needs a little bit of exfoliating to remove dead skin cells so your makeup can last longer and foundation, powder or bronzer will go on smoothly and effortlessly. read more
