PR products best PR products

On this sunny Monday, I wanted to share a nice upbeat post. I went through my beauty stash and chose 10 PR products which I would  definitely buy myself. Basically, they are all really great products I enjoy using and will continue to use. I will also probably repurchase many of them.

PR product #1: La Roche-Posay Serozinc

PR products La Roche-Posay Serozinc

La Roche-Posay Serozinc has been helping me calm my skin after shaving or going at small pimples on my face. It also works great under make-up. I already almost used up one bottle and I already have a new one in stock. You can read my opinion and opinion of two of my readers about it *here*.

PR product #2: L’Occitane Terre De Lumiere eau de toilette

PR products L'Occitane Terre De Lumiere

L’Occitane Terre De Lumiere line is inspired by morning dawn. Personally, I find this to be a fresh and gentle fragrance very appropriate for upcoming spring and summer days. If you prefer stronger and more exotic fragrances, I suggest you check out the perfume from this Terre De Lumiere line.

PR product #3: Dr. Organic purifying shampoo with activated charcoal

PR products Dr. Organic shampoo with activated charcoal

I recently tested the Dr. Organic shampoo and balm with tea tree oil and really liked it a lot. Right now, I’m testing the entire line of Dr. Organic products with activated charcoal. I’m most impressed with the shampoo that really cleans my hair really well (you know that squeaky feeling that really clean hair get?) and prolongs the time between washes from two to three days.

PR product #4: Vichy Slow Age daily moisturizer

PR products Vichy Slow Age daily moisturizer

The Vichy Slow Age inspires me with the slow life philosophy which tells us to live happy and healthy. At the same time, they say it doesn’t mean we have to look the same at 25 and 45 years, like some other brands try to convince us. With my Slow Age daily moisturizer, I take some me time in the morning, apply it to a clean face and drink my lemon water while I wait for it to absorb. The cream is rich enough to feed and protect my skin during the day and still appropriate to wear under make-up. I won’t even start talking about the jar and the colors – beautiful, right?

PR product #5: Melvita L’Or Bio golden oil

PR products Melvita L'Or Bio golden oil

Melvita L’Or Bio golden oil has been a staple in my beauty routine for quite some time now. I use it on my face, hair, on my dry feet and elbows, to soften up the cuticles… there are almost infinite options of use. Besides the great texture and rich formula with five different oils, it never stops surprising me with the lovely fragrance. You can read more about it *here*.

PR product #6: L.O.V powder brush

PR products L.O.V make-up brush

This L.O.V powder brush convinced me at the moment we met. Not only does it look beautiful (which is less important but I still like looking at pretty products first thing in the morning), it’s also really soft and great at picking out any powder product. It’s large enough to use all over the face but I also occasionally use it for bronzer or blush.

PR product #7: Paese mattifying make-up base

PR products Paese mattifying primer

Paese mattifying base for about six months now and I’m slowly running out. With all the primers in my collection, this is another proff of how special this product really is. When applied, it creates a soft, velvety feeling to the skin and works great with almost all foundations. I apply the majority of the product on my forehead where I get the most oily. This primer does a great job of controling that.

PR product #8: Avon Mark Magix HD finishing powder

PR products Avon Mark Magiq HD powder

Avon Mark Magiq HD finishing powder is one of those products that have become a staple in my beauty collection. The formula is very light, clings well to the brush, mattifies the skin and doesn’t leave a white cast like some other finishing powders. It gets extra points for not having any smeel. I get quite artistic when applying my finishing powder and with the dust flying everywhere, this is an important topic for me.

PR product #9: Max Factor Lash Crown mascara

PR products Max Factor Lash Crown mascara

Today, I’m showing you this particular Max Factor Lash Crown mascara for the last time. It’s been six months since I started using it so it’s time to throw it away and go buy a new one. I think it’s the first mascara I ever completely used up before it dried up. This innovative brush makes sure that I don’t apply too much formula. The small brush on the other side makes it easy to coat the bottom lashes and the smaller lashes in the inner corner. You can read more about it *here*.

PR product #10: L.O.V Lipaffair Color&Care Brave Nudes lipstick (Angelina’s belief)

PR products L.O.V Brave Nudes Angelina's Belief

It’s only April but I already suspect that the L.O.V Color&Care Brave Nudes lipstick in the shade Angelina’s Belief will end up being my favorite bullet lipstick of 2018. It’s a strongly pigmented lipstick that feels very light on the lips. It has good staying power for a classical lipstick but doesn’t dry up the lips at all. This shade is pink with a slight coral undertone. I think it would look good with any skin tone.

These are the 10 PR products that impressed me so much I would happily buy them myself. Did you try any of them already? Until next time, stay beautiful!

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.

Melvita Argan Concentrate Pur

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

If you want to try out the Melvita Argane Concentrate Pur, it’s available *here* for 42€. You can also get a discount by applying for their newsletter.

Melvita Argan Concentrate Pur

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!

 

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

Melvita L'Or Bio bottle

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!
