Melvita L'Or Bio bottle

2017 has definitely been a year of oils and Melvita L’Or Bio is the latest addition to my collection. When I first received it, I was intrigued by the statement that it’s a dry oil since I never tried anything like that before. I’ve been using it for a couple of weeks now and I can honestly say that this might be one of those products that I’ll keep buying over and over again.

What is Melvita L’Or Bio

First, let’s talk ingredients. Melvita L’Or Bio is a cocktail of five organic oils. First is the argan oil from Morocco, known for its skincare properties which I’m sure we’re all familiar with since it’s a common enough ingredient in skincare. Next oils are kendi oil from Indonesia and Inca Inchi oil from Peru that apparently have regenerating properties. I don’t think I’ve ever used any skincare with these two oils before. Buriti oil from Brazil nourishes the skin and gives it a healthy glow and the Pracaxi oil from Amazonia improves hair shine and strength.

How to use Melvita L’Or Bio

I don’t think that you need any specific instructions, but still. I use 2-3 drops for my face as the last step in my evening routine. I notice that on the face, it takes the longest to sink in, but this is due to all other products I use beforehand. I also like applying a couple of drops to the ends of my hair after blow-drying them since it leaves a beautiful lingering scent. You could also apply it to the ends of your hair before drying them, of course. But what I’m most excited about is using it for my body. As I often discussed before, I rarely have time to apply moisturizer and wait for 10 minutes for it to dry. Now, I just apply this Melvita L’Or Bio and I’m ready to put my clothes on in a minute or two the most. My skin is really happy right now!

5 reasons to use Melvita L’Or Bio

You mean, besides the amazing ingredients? First, the incredible smell which you’ll probably never get tired of. I cannot explain it in words, but I can assure you it’s absolutely amazing. Second, soft and luxurious looking hair. L’Or Bio gives the hair an amazing glow and emphasizes the hair color. My hair look silky, smooth and the blonde color really stands out. Thirdly, quick absorption which is important to many. If you live a quick paced life like me, then you’ll definitely appreciate the fact that you can get dressed minutes after applying it to your body.

Four, a tiny amount goes a long way. I won’t say that I don’t like drenching myself in body butter when I get the chance, but for everyday use, I much prefer using a few drops of the Melvita L’Or Bio to literally nourish my entire body. And finally, the softness of the skin. Since Melvita L’Or Bio is a dry oil, I really wasn’t expecting it to have the same magical result for my skin as the regular oils I occasionally use. Well, I was wrong. After use, my skin is incredibly soft and this feeling lingers for days at a time.

Would I recommend Melvita L’Or Bio?

Well, if you have a face, body or hair (which I presume you do), then you’d definitely benefit from using this amazing, luxurious dry oil. Being 100 % natural is just the cherry on top! You can get it in Melvita online shop *here*. Right now, there’s a sale on the 100ml bottle so you can get it at -15 % for 28€. I know that this will be one of the gifts I’ll be giving away in the upcoming holidays.

Until next time, stay beautiful!

 

MySpirit perfume

This is the third post I’m writing this year about MySpirit perfumes and I think it’s the last one for the year – although I’m not making any promises for 2018. I wrote a post introducing this Slovenian perfume brand in the late spring – you can read it *here*. Then, I did a lovely summer post about their perfume necklace – which I still wear at least a couple of times per week – that you can find *here*. Today, I want to discuss another cool idea they came up with that I find perfect for the upcoming holidays (by the way – I’m SO excited about December being just around the corner, how about you???).

Basically, giving a present can seem a bit impersonal at times, even if you put a lot of thought into it. It’s also quite a difficult task because you need to know the fragrances and the notes that your loved ones enjoy. But a quick peek around their bathroom can usually do the trick. As you surely know by now, you can find exact dupes of the most popular scents with MySpirit. But they took it a step further and you can personalize your gift with a sticker, showing that you were really thinking about this person when you were buying them the perfume.

MySpirit perfume stickers

At the moment, there are 12 different stickers available in their *online store* and you get them together with your perfume of choice. They can be sorted into general categories, but some – like *Thank you* – can be used on a number of occasions and for various different loved ones in your life. View Full Post

Catrice Kaviar Gauche collection

Normally, I only show you pieces from limited edition collections that I really like. Well, this time, the story is the same, but what you’re seeing is actually the entire colection. It’s so absolutely beautiful that I would love to own everything in it. As you can tell from the photo above, I already got a quick peek at the collection at Beautyful Bloggers MeetUp and quickly decided that I want to introduce it to you.

Kaviar Gauche is one of the most fashionable brands in Germany, best known for their wedding gowns. This is the third time they collaborated with Catrice and I think the end result is stunning. There is a ton of gold and small detailing that makes this collection an absolute eye candy. You know how I always say that Catrice is stepping up their game? Well, this Kaviar Gauche & Catrice is another example of this!

Catrice Kaviar Gauche LE – brushes (eye brushes 4,29 €, face brushes 5,69€)

Catrice Kaviar Gauche brushes

First, I want to show you the brushes. There are four brushes in the collection (left to right):  highlighter brush, eye lid brush, eye blender brush and blush&contour brush (try to say this sentence out loud!). They look absolutely stunning and would be a welcome addition to my collection. I had the chance to give them a whirl and I have to say they are incredibly soft. For the price, definitely something to consider if you’re looking for new, affordable brushes.

Catrice Kaviar Gauche LE – brush roll (6,29 €)

Good brush roll is hard to come by. I’ve had the same one for years and it’s not exactly pretty looking anymore. This brush roll from Catrice Kaviar Gauche is intended for two larger and three smaller brushes, but I think you could actually fit more than that in there. I love the entire look of it with the cute bow. The color is perhaps not the most practical for travel, but beautiful nonetheless.

Catrice Kaviar Gauche LE – eyeshadow quad Sans Souci (6,29 €)

Eyeshadow quads in LE from Catrice are kind of hit or miss with me and this one is definitely a hit. With the four colors, you can easily create an everyday look, but I’d buy this palette even just to look at. With the details in the pans and the stunning packaging, it’s perhaps the prettiest palette of this year.

Catrice Kaviar Gauche LE – highlighter Eclat D’Or (6,29 €)

This highlighter is absolutely huge! No joke – it’s about as big as my entire palm and that’s saying something. I don’t think I really need another highlight this size with Cubanita and everything, but at the same time, Cubanita is golden and this one draws more toward the pink side. Again, an absolutely stunning product.
