Do cosmetics really work?? I have no idea, to be honest, but I must confess I m addicted to them. I don’t have a very faithful love story with them as I am constantly changing and trying new things. Let’s take a look at my new list:
Huile de Caudalie
Yeah, I bought it when I arrived in France and I love the parfum and it s not a greasy oil at all. You can use it all over, body, face and hair. I love putting a small amount and spread it through the ends of my hair, it smells so good and the effect is wonderful, it just shines.
Eye firming Mary Kay
I try so many things for the eye area and I couldn’t find anything better than the eye firming from Mary Kay. Just a small amount with slight tapping around the eyes and you look great. It’s a great deal when you wake up in misery.
This is my product fetishe. I know it is expensive, that s why I have a warehouse of it with me, but I dare someone trying one single product of the brand and say it is not good. Impossible> I have the oil that goes great with dump hair, the shampooing, the conditioner and the mascara. I recommend everything.
One thing I love about French drugstores is the generosity on handling samples to clients. As I have become BFF with the lady on the drugstore on the corner, I get loads of them. This is great as I can discover so many great products for free.
As beautiful as the fashion capital may be, it really has the power to destroy your skin, so I can easily change from a oil skin (that I used to have in Rio) to a very dry skin. So no I pay a lot of attention to the knees and elbow area. This super mosturiser has 10% of urea and the hydrating effect is imediat. The bonus: it’s really cheap.
Clay mask Cattier
I love clay masks. My skin feels great after it and I love the moment of waiting till it starts acting. The good thing about this mask is that you don’t have to make the mix and calculate the perfect amount of water and clay, it’s just ready. It comes in a tube and you just have to press it. Another product that won’t hurt your pocket.
Day after day I discover that Bioderma is a great brand with great prices. The so famous delicate lotion used as a make up remover is of course on the list, but you should also try the daily cleansing gel and the shampooing. The daily cleansing is very delicate, but you really feel your skin clean after using it, using on a daily basis will avoid you having those annoying blackheads. The shampooing is meant to be very delicated as well, you will notice it takes some time to create the foam, and maybe you need to use a bigger amount than a regular one, but it’s worth.
So, those are my new discoveries for now, let’s see what will come up next.
