Melvita Argan Concentrate Pur

In the past few years, I’ve been noticing changes on my face. These changes don’t have so much to do with my lifestyle as with…well.. my age. I’ll be turning 34 in a couple of months. Therefore, I’m happy to test out new serums, creams and all other products that could contribute to my skin keeping as much youthful appearance as possible for years to come.

Melvita Argan Concentrate Pur – a cream-oil for youthful appearance is a face cream that got me hooked after only a couple of weeks of use. It’s fomulated with 5 % argan oil and promises to reduce the appearance of fine lines, tighten the skin and improve the contours of the face. 99 % of all ingredients are natural and 25 % of them come from ecological farming.

My skin is mixed and I was slightly concerned that with that much argan oil, it will not work through the day. For a few weeks, I only used it in my night time routine. I quickly learned I have little to worry about – the cream absorbs very quickly and doesn’t leave an oily film on your face. I can attest that it’s appropriate for mixed skin as well, but if your skin is dry, I’m sure it would love this cream even more!

You only need a tiny amount for each application. I’ve been using this 50ml jar since November twice a day and I’ve still got about a months’ use left. In the spring and summer months, I’ll reach for some other cream, perhaps one with more moisturizing performance to really give my skin that extra boost in the warm weather. If you have dry skin, this cream would be appropriate throughout the year.

Melvita Argan Concentrate Pur cream is one of those products I’ll probably keep going back to again and again. I find that having such reliable products in my “arsenal” is extremely important as I test many new products which often irritates my skin a lot.

Until next time, stay beautiful!


new beauty products january 2018

In the blog about 2017 and plans for 2018, I promised a New In each final Friday of the month. Naturally, I also receive some packages in the final days of the month, but these will be included in the post of the following month. I’ll include a short review wherever I can, but in most cases, you’ll have to wait a little while longer for any real evaluation of the products. If there’s something you’re really interested in, let me know in the comments below and I’ll try my best to review that product for you. Now, let’s go ahead and get started. All the products I bought on my own are marked with a * for full disclosure.

new beauty products Vichy

Vichy kindly sent me a  gorgeous suede make-up bag, Vichy Nutrilogie 2 Intense cream for very dy skin, cute notebook and Vichy Slow Age Eyes, targeted care for developing signs of ageing with anti oxidant baicalin, bifidus and gingko. It’s meant to help reduce puffiness, dark circles and fine lines.

new beauty products Nabla

If you didn’t know, I’m a moderator for a Slovenian group about cosmetics. Every once in a while, all of us gather and have a little party and this time, we also got some presents! I got the cutest set with Nabla Velvetine long-lasting lip pencil in the shade Grace and Nabla metallic liquid lipstick in the same shade. They are absolutely gorgeous and I’ve been wearing them a lot lately.

new beauty products Derma.E

At the same moderator meet-up, I also received Derma E Essentials – Microdermabrasion scrub from Beautybottled that blends away dullness and smooths the fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars. I’ve used it a couple of times so far, gently massaging it into my face for about three minutes before I rinse it of. It’s a microdermabrasion scrub that shouldn’t be used too often in order not to damage the skin, but once a week or so seems just right for my skin. I really like it so far and I’m happy to add another eco product to my stash.

new beauty products Dr.Organic

Dr. Organic is a new brand to Slovenia and I was excited to try their products. They sent me the Tea Tree shampoo and conditioner, Hemp oil Body Wash and Virgin Coconut Oil deodorant. The latter is formulated without aluminium, SLS, paraben and alcohol, which is perfect for our sensitive skin and prevents any clogging of the pores. I’ve got a full post about these coming next week so stay tuned for that.

new beauty products Essence

Essence is celebrating their 15th Birthday this year and apparently, it means gifts for everyone (think Oprah). I was sent the stunning Ready, set, glow holographic make-up bag, Essence Be my highlight eyeshadow palette, Make me special lipstick topper and a gorgeous eyeshadow blending brush.

new beauty products La Roche-Posay

I’m always excited for new LRP products, especially since I’ve started my love affair with Serozinc. I was sent La Roche-Posay Toleriane Teint Mineral compact powder with SPF 25 (Sand beige) and the Eau Micellaire ultra, micelar water for sensitive skin.

new beauty products e.l.f.

i did a little bit of shopping myself. I bought the e.l.f. powder brush* and Blush&bronzer duo in St.Lucia*. Both of these are repuchases and i got them from iHerb. Sadly, they changed the shades in the St. Lucia compact and I think both will be far too light for my skin tone. View Full Post

beauty wishlist january 2018

Today, you’ll be reading the first of 12 wish lists I will post in 2018. I get a lot of PR e-mails and follow many brands, meaning I’m usually lusting after quite a few products. It doesn’t mean that I’ll necessarily buy everything on the list, but a girl can dream, right?

beauty wishlist january 2018

1 Bobbi Brown Extra Repair serum promises to refresh and calm the skin, giving it the extra hydration our skin needs in these cold days with the dry air. Apparently, it also helps with redness, dry spots and breakouts – issues that I know too well. It’s super expensive, but based on all of the reviews I’ve read so far it’s worth the money.

2 The Body Shop Metal Liquid Lipstick – Russet Copper. I’ve tested The Body Shop matte liquid lipsticks (review is waiting for you *here*) and now, I’ve got my eye on the metal liquid lipsticks. They are available in six shades and this one in Russet Copper is my absolute favorite of the bunch.

3 Catrice California in a box bronzer & blush palette. This brand has a big launch coming in January as a preview of their permanent collection for the SS 2018. I think that after years of matte, matte and matte, it will be fun to dive into metals, holographics and shimmers. I love the idea of being able to use all of the products matte or simply top them off with some shimmer for added BAM!

4 Natura Siberica Northern Soap for Deep Facial Cleansing. When I first saw this product, my jaw dropped. I’m currently using (and loving!) the Natura Siberica Moisturizing Foam Eye Make Up Remover – I promise the post is coming really soon. As I’m really trying to make a nice transition to natural brands, I’m always on the hunt for something new. Northern Soap is made with active charcoal and promises, among other things, to increase elasticity. It’s also a natural antiseptic and toner. So basically, you’re getting 3-1 for the same price.

5 Avon Mark Concealer. As a big fan of the Avon Mark line, I’m always on the hunt for new products from the line. It’s secretly one of my goals in life to own enough Avon Mark products to be able to do a full face of make-up only with those. So adding a concealer is a step in the right direction. View Full Post
