I’m always the last one to jump on the bandwagon of the hottest beauty trend. But after a couple of color experiments and some heat styling excesss my hair was getting difficult and not responding to my usual almond oil+deep conditioner treatment (nothing beats it for me!). One day I found myself standing in front of the overwhelming drugstore hair island and lacking of my favorite serum when I finally succumbed to the hair oils buzz. Here’s what I’ve learned.
THEY CAN STYLE, NOT REPAIR
Because hair is already dead and nothing can really repair it, treating it carefully to keep it looking as healthy as possible is the best we can do. Oils facilitate (more…)
Three inexpensive products from Bourjois’s skincare line that I love and recommend!
THE MICELLAR CLEANSING WATER
This is the ultimate micellar water: unscented, lightweight, alcohol free, and therefore gentle on the skin. Plus: I love Bourjois’s 250 ml Maxiformat. Of course, you can’t relay solely on micellar waters to remove heavy or waterproof makeup, but it’s effective at removing everything else with ease, unlike some others micellar waters I’ve tried. If your skin is tired of overboard abrassive cleansing formulas this is something that worths trying! To know more about makeup removing options click here. (more…)
The fact that Holyday season is right around the corner again feels just insane! If you’re on a budget (I mean, aren’t we all?) and have a lot of gifts to give, say, to your co-workers, cousins, etc…I don’t see any problem with giving smaller gifts. After all, it’s not about how much money you spend on the gift, but how much thought you put into it, so make it cute and significative! (more…)
In these series I’ll talk about my makeup likes/dislikes, faves and tips through my #MOTD posts on instagram and the products I use on an everyday bases. Let’s get started!
I had a party that day, but I like to keep it simply with my makeup no matter the ocasion. This time I went for a mix of Nude Dude’s Faithful and Fit on the lid (Check them out here). I applied the blush from the Autobalm California Face Palette which I’ve been using way more than I expected (review here) and Luminoso on top. For my lips I sticked to my signature berry shade and lightened it with pink. (more…)
When it comes to hairstyling I’m probably the less skilled beauty blogger out there. I love intricate braids and hairstyles as much as the next beauty tutorial addict, but truth be told, I have no patience to actually try them. Plus: my natural crazy textured hair has a mind on its own, so whenever I’m feeling creative it refuses to cooperate.
Curling it’s just the easiest route for me, and soft waves are my go-to, they work for every possibly situation and look great on everyone. To get them I use the Sapphire 8 in 1 Curling Wand from Irresistible Me, which as the name suggests comes with eight interchangeable barrels for eight different style possibilities. Although the big barrels help me to smooth things out in no time, the thinner barrels work the best for my mid length, so I tend to come and go between the 18/19MM, the Pearl, and the 13MM barrel (the first 3 in the photo below respectively).
