The bloggers receive special offers especially for their readers, who can buy great quality beauty products for less. The discounted products are available here! Enjoy!

Salon Science Celluluxe Shampoo and Conditioner
This is the first time I tried products from Salon Science and I must say I really like them. Mainly because I have dry hair so I need something hydrating and repairing. The shampoo contains powerful plant stem cells extracts from rare Swiss Apples which reapairs the hair, enhances volume and has antiageing properties as well. 

The products smell amazing! The smell is very fresh with a hint of sweetness from the apples! I was satisfied with both products as they volumised and hydrated my hair, without weighting them down, plus my hair smelt gorgous throughout the day!
SPECIAL OFFER! Free Hair Mask with Shampoo and Conditioner! Save £21!

Elemental Herbology Radiance and Vitality Cell Food

This is my favourite product from the February Libbie Club, it is a real beauty gem. It contains 14 active ingredients, and 6 antioxidants which help to boost radiance and vitality. It is filled with vitamins, proteins and antioxidants which hydrate and revive your skin. The ingredients are 100% natural which is another plus, especially since I am trying to use more and more natural products.

I used this serum twice a day, in the morning before make-up and in the evening before applying my moisturiser. It has a fantastic effect on my skin, I can feel instant hydration, the pores are less visible and the skin is glowing. Best part about it? You only need two drops for the magic to happen 😉

SPECIAL OFFER! Free Cleanser and Night Cream! Save £20!

Scentered Stress Less Therapy Balm 
In the fast paced environment, we are often exposed to stressful situations and we do not have too much time to relax. The balm by Scentered will help you soothe your mind, and ease your tensions.It contains neroli, chamomile and mandarin, but for me the most prominent are the notes of neroli and mandarin, so if you are a fan of those scents, this balm will be ideal for you.
I applied it on the pulse points and temples during stressful moment, before going to sleep or when I simply needed some aromatherapy. The packaging is very convenient and lights so it can be easily carried in a handbag, and used on the go!

Ania’s advice
1. Use a serum everyday
2. Apply conditioner from roots till the ends
3. Buy yourself a Valentine’s gift

Hello Stunning!

It is time for favourites once again! This month I decided to focus on skincare, healthy eating and sports which you probably realised by looking at my favourites. This month I also attended the London Health Show which inspired me to focus on my health and wellbeing, as external beauty is in fact the reflection of inner health. 

Beuti Skincare, Beauty Sleep Elixir  
This January I have been using this new Beauty Sleep Elixir from Beuti Skincare. First of all lets all take a moment admiring the packaging, it is so cute and gorgeous! It is a 100% natural product, containing 98% organic oils. It contains 14 precious plant oils which support the skin barrier, fight inflammaging, and counteract irritation as well as inflammation. The oils are well known for their anti-oxidant properties, which support the skin barrier.

I usually applied this product in the evening after I cleansed my face, and followed with a moisturiser to supply my skin with all the precious nutrients, minerals, vitamins and omega 3, 5, 6, 7 and 9. After the night treatment I woke up with a hydrated and glowing skin. What I liked about this product is that it was 100% natural so I knew that it is healthy and good for my skin.

Since the serum is made of oils it does have an oily texture but it absorbs into the skin quite quickly.  I also tried it as a base for makeup and it did a pretty good job, but you need to ensure you don’t put too much as  you can end up with an oily skin! You can use it in the evening as a serum, blemish treatment and for brightening the skin. Available from Beauti Skincare Website (Price, £40)


Skin and Tonic London Steam Clean 
I always come back to the cleansing balms during the winter months, as they are hydrating and the routine is very relaxing. This month, I have been using the balm from Skin and Tonic, a British, organic brand. It has a minty, eucalyptus smell which has a calming effect on your body and mind. 
I think the best way to use a cleansing balm is to massage it into the skin, then add a little bit of water to melt the makeup and dirt then following with a hot muslim cloth, removing all the grime. I like to treat it as an evening ritual, always enjoying the aromatherapy, and the hot towel. Available from Skin and Tonic Website (Price, £27)
Greenfrog Botanic Geranium and Peppermint Botanical Wash 
As you all know, I LOVE herbal scents, especially geranium and peppermint so this soap has taken a special place in my bathroom. It is made with soapberries from the Himalayan Mountains, which are also used in Ayurvedic medicine to treat eczema and dry, sensitive skin. They are non invasive, so they will not affect the Ph of your skin. I do have dry skin so if a product is unsuitable my skin will be itchy, 
I found the Botanical hand wash to be very nourishing and hydrating, leaving my skin soft and clean.  It contains aloe vera, which has soothing effect, peppermint oil which has a cooling as well as refreshing effect and calming geranium oil. I used this hand wash few times a day, and found to be different to the other products available on the market, which do tend to dry out my skin. What I also like about this brand, is that it is eco-friendly and 100% vegan. The products are biodegradable, parabens and SLS free, and do not contain harmful chemicals. The hand wash is a great bathroom essential and it is available on Greenfrog website, (Price, £7.40) 

Toni and Guy  Guy Wave Memoriser 
Lately I am a fan of messy hair look. I love the ‘out of bed’ style, messy waves or ponytails so when I saw this in Boots I decided to give it a go. My hair is naturally quite wavy but I don’t like to use mousse as it sticks them together and they look terrible so I was hoping this will enhance my waves.
I was quite surprised by the results, it made my hair super wavy, giving my hair this ‘surfer look’. It does not stick your hair together, but smoothes the frizz and enhances the waves. I love the packaging, especially that it is purple and the gorgeous scent of this product. Available in Boots, (Price, £7.49)

Sunsoul 
This is a new brand that I discovered during the London Health Show and I am happy to say that a healthy energy drink has finally arrived. As many of you, I am quite busy and often I do need to just keep going. I cannot drink all those sugary, drinks with taurine as they simply make me feel like I am about to have a heart attack and I feel worse than when I am tired. 
I know I don’t normally write about non beauty products but this definitely deserves a mention. The Sunsoul drinks are designed for women. They are low in calories (only 84) per can, and they are made with 100% natural ingredients such as Guarana, kola nut and baobab which give you energy without nasty effects on your body. They taste amazing as well, my favourite so far is the Raspberry and Elderflower, but you can also get them in flavours like Spiced Mango and Pineapple or Lime and Lemon. 

Ania’s advice:
1. Find exercise you will love
2. Eat healthy!
3. Make smoothies *-*

Hello Everyone!
I have some exciting news to share with you today! I have been thinking about this for a while and I finally filmed my first video featuring Empties:) Please let me know what you think and what you would like to see next. Enjoy!

Hello in 2016!
I am so happy I can wish you all a Happy New Year and I hope 2016 will be as wonderful as 2015. I  know it is two weeks late, but it has been so hectic that I had no time to post anything. The good news is that I am back! As always I have December favourites that I wanted to share with you, please let me know if you tried any of these and what you think about them!

Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Miracle Cleanser
The Aurelia Cleanser is filled with probiotics and peptide technologies which help to protect the skin, revitalise it and prevent it from ageing. It is also 100% Bioorganic which is one of the reasons I fell for it. It contains Baobab which is rich in Omega 3, 6, and 9, firming Kigali Africana and antioxidant Hibiscus and of course the ingredient which are responsible for the scent so Chamomile, Rosemary, Eucalyptus and Bergamot.
I took this skiing with my friends and every single person wanted to try this, I am not joking, men included. It is such a relaxing treatment after a long day. The best way to use this is to apply it to your face, rub to melt away the makeup, then put a hot cloth on your face and breathe in the divine herbal/minty smell. You can repeat the hot cloth which I always do as it really helps me relax. A December must-have. (This Miracle Cleanser is available from Space NK, £34)
Clinique High Impact Mascara 
I got this sample with the Glamour December Issue and I absolutely love it! It adds volume and length to my lashes, making them look gorgeous. The brush is soft and makes sure you lashes are not only thick and long but also separated. I loved it during December as with all the coats, hats and scarves it still made my eyes stand out. Great mascara! (This mascara is available in Boots, £17.50)

34.4 Honey Balm 
I got this lovely balm from a lovely lady called Elke when I was visiting Slow Living and Food Market at Rosewood Hotel in London. Let me explain the meaning of the name first as you are probably all wondering. 34.4 relates to the ideal temperature that the bees need to thrive in the heart of the bee hive! The honey balm is perfect for healing and soothing the skin, and it is suitable for all skin types. It is natural, containing only 3 ingredients – honey, beeswax and kernel oil, so it is ideal for allergic or sensitive skin. I liked using this balm on my lips and cuticles to nourish them during the cold days in December! (Available from 34.4 website, £5) 
Dove Pure Care Oil Nourishing Treatment

I use hair oils daily, even before or after brushing my hair. It helps with smoothing the frizz and nourishing my hair, and is especially important during the winter and summer months. I really liked this hair oil, as it made my hair silky smooth without weighing them down. It comes in a glass bottle so it feels luxurious and the price is definitely a bargain! Made with African Macadamia it is a great choice for winter. (Available from Boots, £9.99)
Revlon Lipstick (Shade, Rose) 
When it is cold and rainy outside what makes you stand out from the crowd? A good lipstick! In December I discovered the lipstick from Revlon and I can say that I finally found a lipstick which does not dry out my lips and looks great throughout the day. The shade is beautiful and I wore it both during the day and evening as it is so universal. (Available from Boots, £7.99)

The Body Shop Shea Body Butter 
I would not survive winter months without a good, moisturising body butter. During December I have been loving The Body Shop Shea Body Butter. Whenever I go to the store I spend about 10 minutes smelling all the body butters, because there is always something new and I like the traditional ranges too. The Shea Body Butter is one of their classics, and I understand why after using up the whole tub during December. It is thicker than other body butters and super moisturising, so ideal for winter when my skin tends to get especially dry. I cannot say a bad thing about this product, and I am repurchasing it as soon as I go to the store! (Available from The Body Shop, £14)
Ania’s advice
1. Remember to moisturise your skin
2. Find your perfect other-half
3. Forget 2! Find your perfect lipstick

Hello Gorgeous 
I hope you had a lovely Christmas and spent some quality time with your loved ones. I am sorry I haven’t been posting a lot but I have been very busy with the whole gift preparation, decorating house and of course spending time with my family and friends. This month I received a great subscription box called Dollibox. You can find out more information on Dollibox website. Enjoy!

About Dollibox
Dollibox is a new subscription box for UK based beauty lovers. Each month you will receive 5 personalised beauty samples tailored to your needs, featuring well- known brands, cult classics and niche brands. In addition it includes tutorials and in-box cards featuring products you will receive. You can choose to get a single box or a subscription for 3, 6 or 12 months. (£10 + £3.25 P&P)
Anubis Barcelona Polivitaminic Cleansing Mousse – Full Size RRP £12
What I love about subscription boxes, is that I can try all the new, and niche brands like Anubis. Filled with vitamin C which has anti ageing properties; orange stem cells which have antioxidant  and anti-ageing properties as well as hyaluronic acid which provides hydration to the different skin layers.   The Cleansing Mousse can be used daily, all you need to do is to wet your skin, massage in one or two pumps and enjoy. The cleansing mousse is a perfect product, especially for the winter season as it does not dry out the skin but leaves it hydrated, smooth and healthy. Plus it smells like oranges *-* 
Osmo Intensive Deep Repair Mask – Travel Size RRP £3
If you read my blog regularly you will know that I am addicted to hair products, and that my hair is sometimes impossible to manage as it gets quite dry and tangled. I tried Osmo products before and I was very satisfied with the results so I had quite high hopes for this one. Of course I was not disappointed. This mask is designed for dry and damaged hair, and it aims to ‘restore moisture and elasticity, leaving hair feeling silky, smooth and manageable’. Filled with wonderful ingredients such as Jojoba Oil, Patchouli and Ylang Ylang, it promises to moisturise, smooth, tame frizz and control excess sebum. 
You can use this mask as a short (3-5 mins) or long treatment (7-10 mins). I always go for the longer treatment as it works better. The mask is quite thick and creamy and it smells amazing, I found the scent a bit nutty, I cannot quite describe it. The mask made my hair smooth and hydrated as promised, lovely product!

Model Co Highlighting Trio – Full Size RRP £14
Who doesn’t love to add a little bit of glow to their face with a little bit of highlighter, bronzer, or blush? This product is a 3 in 1, allowing you to change your make-up as you fancy wherever you are. You can use the bronzer for conturing, the highlighter for brightening your complexion and blush to add some colour to your make-up. I preferred using them 1 at a time but you can also experiment with the shades and combine them together. It is up to you how you use it, I am sure it will look stunning whatever you do 🙂 

Bare Naturals Pomegranate & Pink Grapefruit Soap – Full Size RRP £3.65
Another item in the box was a soap from Bare Naturals. It is 100 % natural, vegan, paraben & SLS free and it is handmade in the UK. It contains grapefruit essential oil which is known for its revitalising and cleansing properties, nourishing pomegranate and other oils such as coconut oil and olive oil. As you can imagine it smells sweet and fresh making it perfect for my everyday hand soap. 

Freeman Barefoot Lavender + Mint Foot Cream – Trial Size RRP £1.50
This foot cream could not arrive at a better time, after Christmas Eve and the busy December month my feet are in need of a treatment. It is filled with tea tree oil, lavender oil and peppermint which help in soothing and relaxing tired feet as well as reinvigorating muscles. 
What did I think?
I think this box is great as it contains products from all the beauty categories like haircare, skincare, makeup and body care so everyone can find something they will like. All the products included in the box were good quality and they worked perfectly with my skin. I would get it again!
The December box is available until 31st December so order soon if you would like to get those fantastic beauty items from Dollibox website!

Hi Beauty!

I hope you are all getting ready for Christmas and have started decorating your homes, packing your xmas presents and also finding some time for yourselves! Since there is not as much time left, I wanted to give you some gift ideas, and inspirations for your loved ones, your friends or even for you. The shopping destination that I recently discovered is called Au Sujet De Vert, where you can find the best selection of organic niche products such as Hairy Jayne, Tabitha James Kraan, Carishea, Ermana Natural Skincare, Lyonsleaf, Cime Skincare, Vedani Botanicals, Rossi Uvema.
One of the cool things about this store is that if you live in London Area W1, your products will be hand delivered to you for  free!

Ermana Comfort Balm 
I love this Balm! Especially after a stressful, busy days, this is exactly what I need to relax. It is made with 3 butters cocoa, shea and coconut; essential oils including lavender, geranium and ylang ylang. All of the ingredients are blended with sweet almond oil and beeswax which gives it a thick, rich texture. It is also 100% natural *-* 
This balm is a multi-purpose products so it is ideal when you travel as it has many different uses. The ingredients have antioxidant properties, and the balm heals, smooths and protects the skin from any external damage. It works amazing as a de-stressing balm. All you need to do is apply it to your wrists, and temples and massage it into the skin, then inhale the divine scent of the oils. It can also be used on dry areas heeling the cracked skin. I do suffer from dry skin, so applying this balm on my elbows really made a difference, especially that it has this waxy texture which I find works best on damaged skin.
This comfort balm would be the perfect stocking filler for an organic beauty lover, a busy person or a home lover who enjoys relaxing evenings! (Available here, £8)

 Tabitha James Kraan Golden Citrus 4 in 1 Conditioner
This Golden Citrus 4. in one conditioner is also a multipurpose product, as all the items I am reviewing in this post. It can be used as a conditioner, a leave-in treatment, scalp moisturiser or a styling product which is great as when you are travelling instead of taking 4 product you will only need to take this one.

Ingredients:
Oatmilk– restorative, structuring, vitamins, minerals
Organic Oils – Rosehip, Argan, Coconut
Essential oils – Neroli, Tangerine, Bergamot, Myrryth

I liked to use it as a leave-in treatment, applying it from midlenghtns till the ends to nourish the hair. It also worked great for styling, easing the frizz and making my hair smooth. This conditioner has a lovely, citrusy smell which fits perfectly into the winter season. Also I am a fan of the packaging, it is so different to other conditioners, and it is very travel friendly as it has a pump so it will not spill in your bag. The ingredients are great for hair, especially the Argan and Coconut oils. It is 92% organic and is suitable for all hair types (including coloured hair)

This Conditioner would be an ideal gift for a person who loves haircare, a person with problematic hair or for you! (Available here, £22.50)

Lyonsleaf Beauty Balm 
Lyonsleaf Beauty Balm is another multi-tasking product. It is a cleanser as well as a moisturiser. It has cell regenerating properties helps prevent spots and helps boost skin’s natural sun protection systems. I had a small sample so I tried to use it as a to cloth cleanser. It has a lovely, herbal scent and the balm is easy to apply since it is not as solid as some other balms. I applied it to dry skin, then massaged it in to melt any make-up and used a hot cloth to remove it, breathe in the scent while having the hot cloth on your face. The balm removed all the make-up well, leaving my skin feeling clean and ready for a moisturiser.

This Beauty Balm would be an ideal stocking filler for a skincare lover, or organic beauty fan (Available here £12.95) 

Hairy Jayne Pre-Shampoo Treatment Oil 
As you all know I am quite obsessed with haircare products so this was an exciting product to try. First of all, let me start with the ingredients: 
Argan oil -nourishes, strengthens and smoothes
Bay – reduces hair fall, promotes growth
Clary Sage – clarifies scalp, regulates oil
Lavender – soothes skin irritation, promotes sleep 
 Olive Oil– moisturises dry skin and hair; 
Pomegranate Seed Oil – anti-inflammatory
Ylang Ylang -nourishes hair follicles 
The ingredients are ideal for any hair problems, they will nourish the scalp as well as the hair, prevent hair falling out and promote growth. This oil is suitable for all hair types and all ages. I applied this oil before washing my hair and left it on for 1-2 hours but you can also leave it overnight.
I found that the applicator was very good as the oil did not spill everywhere which always tends to happen to me! First thing I noticed was the scent which is beautiful and relaxing, it is quite herbal and you can smell the notes of the lavender and ylang ylang so when the oil is working in your hair you will also enjoy the aromatherapy which will help you unwind. The oil made my hair smooth, shiny and got rid of the frizz. I did feel very relaxed and sleepy after using this oil so it definitely has sleep promoting properties. I feel like this this Pre-Shampoo Oil could be a part of Spa treatment as it has the gorgeous scent, professional packaging and great results. 
This Pre-Shampoo Treatment Oil would be the perfect stocking filler for a person who loves haircare, a person with problematic hair or for you as it can be used daily as a leave-in treatment! (Available here, £9)
Ania’s advice:
1. Try organic products 
2. Use aromatherapy to relax
3. Start singing xmas carols

Hello Gorgeous 
I hope you all had a good month, and are already starting to feel the Christmas atmosphere. I did not even realise when London started to look so magical once again, the lights are everywhere, the ice skating rings are filled with ice skaters and the window displays look wonderful. This month I have been focusing on skincare and body care as with the colder months, I noticed that my skin is more vulnerable to damaging effects of temperature differences. 


Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask 
When I discovered this mask in Selfridges, I was amazed by the beautiful smell of the Manuka honey. It was the main reason for my compulsive purchase (guilty as always). Having tried and tested this tube of wonder, I can honestly say that this has become one of my favourite masks. It is moisturising, cleansing and has antibacterial properties, so it is great for all skin types.


I found this mask to be very hydrating, and also purifying, clearing out any spots and blemishes. I used it 2-3 times a week, layering a thick layer over face and neck, and leaving it on for 20 minutes, then washed it off with warm water. The ‘user’ experience is great as it is not messy, smells divine and is easy to remove, leaving your skin feeling smooth and glowing. (Available here, £22) 

Melvita L’Or Bio Extraordinary Oil 
Recently, I was invited to a Melvita Press event and I received this Extraordinary Oil to try. As you all know, I am a fan of oils so this was a very exciting product for me to try. The Melvita Oil is 100% natural, made with 5 essential oils :

– Argan oil from Morocco (Skincare properties)
– Kendi oil from Indonesia & Inchi oil from Amazonia (Regenerating properties)
– Buriti oil from Brazil (Promotes healthy skin glow)
– Pracaxi oil from Amazonia (Improves hair shine & strength) 

You can use Melvita Oil for face, body and hair as it has great properties for skin as well as for hair. This month I’ve been loving this product, especially with the new, gorgeous packaging! I used it daily as it is very nourishing, so it is perfect for the winter season. After a couple of uses my skin was silky, smooth, and glowing. The oil is not heavy, so it gets absorbed quickly into the skin, meaning you can get dressed and go. It smells divine, as it is a mix of bergamot, basil, jasmine, cedar and rose. Definitely a must- have product! (Available here, £15)

This Works In Transit Camera Close-Up

Best. Primer. Ever. This is a must-try product for every beauty fan out there. I always thought that if you don’t wear liquid foundation, there is no need for a primer, until I tried this one. I don’t use a lot of make-up and I tend to stick to powder foundation as my skin is not problematic. I noticed that before I started using a primer, half way through the day my concealer and powder seemed to disappear and I had to reapply again. 
I started using this primer last summer when I got a sample, and since then I am obsessed with it, hence why I purchased a full size bottle. It is worth noting that it is a completely different primer to what you normally get, as it is a 3 in 1 product – primer, mask and moisturiser in one. It has a texture of a moisturiser, it is light and easy to apply. You only need a pea sized amount to cover your face, then let it sink in for few seconds and your skin is full prepped for makeup. When I applied my concealer, powder and bronzer, my skin looked perfect, and it seemed like I was actually wearing foundation. I described the effect as airbrush finish, as the primer gives your skin a boost, plumps it up and smooth out any imperfections. (Available here, £30)

L’Occitane Shea Light Comforting Cream 
It has been a long time since I reviewed L’Occitane, but as a loyal fan, I always end up in their stores, trying products and purchasing new items. I tried this product last year, and got another sample this year. I always seem to try it during the autumn and winter months, and it just fits in with the cosy evenings, candles and winter weather. 
The texture of this cream is very light, so it sinks into the skin almost immediately, hydrating your skin. Like the whole Shea range it has a comforting smell, so it is a cherry on top during my pamper evenings (Available here, £26). You can use it as a day or night cream, but for night I would recommend the more hydrating version  Shea Ultra Rich Comforting cream. (Available here, £28). 




Aveda Dry Remedy

During the colder months, my hair becomes very dry so I need to use a lot of hair oil to ensure it stays smooth and shiny. This month I chose Aveda Dry Remedy, as it is filled with the amazing BBuriti oil, which ensures that the hair stays moisturised, supple and shiny.

What I liked about this oil that it controlled frizz so my hair looked smooth throughout the day. 2-4 drops is enough and you should use it daily for best results. The oil has a herbal scent which is very relaxing  so I am sure you will want to use it in the mornings and evenings 😉 (Available here, £20.50)


Ania’s advice
1. Focus on skincare 
2. Use facemasks 1-2 a week 
3. Visit Winter Wonderland!

La Montana Galan De Noche Candle

La Montaña candles are inspired by Cass and Jonathan Hall’s new life in a mountain village in Valencia. Each fragrance evokes a real experience, and is recreated using only the finest perfume oils.

La Montaña candles are 220gms of top quality wax (burning for at least 40 hours), include a high percentage of natural and essential oils, and are hand poured by artisan candlemakers. All candles are gift-boxed and cellophane-wrapped.

What I thought?

This is my favourite product from this month’s box. It smells amazing, even if the candle is not lit you will still smell the divine notes of jasmine whenever you pass by. The smell is a mainly jasmine with delicate hints of orange blossom, rose and ylang ylang. When I spent my evenings at home, this was definitely one of the great atmosphere contributors. The smell is simply divine, relaxing and cosy. It lasts for 40 hours and lighting it up for as little as 30 minutes filled my room with the beautiful jasmine scent. There are 5 candles to choose from, and you can request scent samples 😉

Crabtree & Evelyn London Apple Hand Cream 
A pioneer in botanical formulations for over 30 years, Crabtree & Evelyn blend the very best of nature and science, tradition and innovation, to create benefit-rich bath, body and home care. Presented in a beautiful Christmas cracker shaper box, this hand cream will leave hands moisturised and noticeably smoother. Crabtree & Evelyn’s award-winning Hand Therapy formula features a blend of Shea butter and macadamia nut oil to keep hands soft, supple and smooth. 

What I thought?
I am always using hand creams so when this came in my Libbie Box I was very happy. It smells like apples and it definitely fits in with the Christmas season. It made my hands smooth, nourished and of course they did smell heavenly. I am loving that this month’s box is so inspirational when it comes to gifts 🙂 This cracker hand cream is the perfect stocking filler!


Hairy Jayne Floral Hair Perfume

Hair Perfume with Heat Protection freshens hair up between shampoos. If you find washing your hair a pain-in-the-neck, or just prefer not to do it too often, this is for you. It adds shine, calms frizz and fly-aways and protects hair from damaging heated styling – all in one spritz. The bright floral fragrance is made from essential oils (aroma compounds extracted directly from plants). The smell evokes a nostalgic feeling of sitting in a sunny English garden.

What I thought?
I think we all realise how bad your perfumes are for your hair, but Hairy Jayne has a solution – Hair Perfume. This product is designed especially for your hair, to make it smell nice without drying and damaging effects. It smells of fresh flowers, so I found myself spraying it throughout the day. It also works well as a hair booster, and it freshened up my hair whenever I applied it. Nice product 😉
Ania’s advice
1. Start lighting candles
2. Find time to relax
3. Enjoy!

Hi Gorgeous

Yes, it is official. Last weekend we did change our clocks to the winter time, which means that summer is officially over. This does not mean that we need to cry and look back at our summer photos and wish it did not end. This time is the perfect time to embrace the new season and the beauty of winter. If you are still regretting the end of the summer period, I found something that will keep you busy, October Favourites! 


NYX Illuminator (Shade Magnetic)
NYX has been loved in the US and now it is finally coming to the UK. It recently opened its counter in Selfridges and it is also available in Boots. This illuminator looks really good on cheeks, it has quite a lot of shimmer so it gives you this fresh, glowing look + you can use it on face and body. It blends in easily, and it is available in 5 shades so if you have a different skin colour you will find something for yourself as well 😉 (Available here, £8.50)

NYX Butter Lipstick (Shade Lollies)
The range of butter lipsticks is my favourite as they moisturise your lips, so you will not get the dry lips feeling half way through the day. This colour is quite natural, so it is ideal for everyday makeup  look. Lovely packaging, lovely product. If you are a lipstick fan, NYX Butter Lipsticks are the ones to try. (Available here, £5.50)
F.O.Y Absolute Nectar Massage Oil
Fountain of Youth is a new brand which specialises in anti ageing products. I recently tried their nourishing massage oil and I actually loved it. It comes in a great size of 200 ml so it will lasts for a long time as you only need to use a little bit. It has a delicate, quite sweet scent which add that ‘something’ to your massage. I used it as a part of my evening routine, and massaged it into my skin, to get silky skin the next day. It is filled with three oils, jojoba, avocado and olive oil, which are all great for your skin, and will keep it nourished and glowing. (Available here

Vita Coco Coconut Oil 
As you probably noticed, I am a fan of all sorts of oils and everything that is natural. Vita Coco recently introduced this coconut oil to the UK market and I was sent a sample to try out. What is important when choosing a coconut oil, is that it is organic, extra virgin and cold pressed. If it fulfils all these criteria then it there are good chances that it is a good quality oil. I liked using this oil for my body as a moisturiser, for my hair as a mask and for my legs as a shaving cream. You can also use this for cooking, so if you get bored of it in your bathroom, it will make your food taste great 🙂 For a free sample go here. (Available in Boots, £10/500ml) 

Etude House Baking Powder 

The thing with Korean products is that they all have such cute packaging *-*. This baking powder is literally a white powder to which you add water and then wash your face. It has no particular scent, but thats good because you don’t need to be worry about having of artificial fragrance on your face. It deeply cleanses your skin, and after few weeks of using I could see that my complexion looked brighter and clearer. Definitely a must-have. I would recommend it for more combination or oily skin, and if you have dry skin then use it only twice a week (Available here £8.99).
Nanokeratin RE Vitalise
I am always up for trying new haircare products, but since my hair is quite dry, I am constantly on a lookout for nourishing products. Before trying out the Nanokeratin products, I heard a lot good things about the brand so finally I got the chance to test it out! I enjoyed using the shampoo as well as the conditioner. The key was to let the products work on your hair instead of washing them off immediately to get the optimal results. The shampoo and the mask combined together made my hair smooth, frizz free and revitalised it. I am definitely going to consider purchasing a full size product. The only downside is that it is quite pricey but your hair is worth the investment 😉
