Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Miracle Cleanser

This intelligent, aromatic, creamy infusion glides on to the skin and lifts off all impurities and make- up. It fuses probiotic and peptide technologies with BioOrganic plant and flower essences to hydrate and soothe dull and dehydrated skin promoting a luminous, dewy, radiant glow whilst helping to prevent skin ageing. Fragranced with an uplifting essential oil blend of Eucalyptus, Chamomile, Rosemary and Bergamot this creamy cleanser along with its soft antibacterial bamboo muslin cloth buffs away dead skin cells and make-up whilst helping to stimulate the skin’s natural renewal process. This in turn speeds skin cell turnover, resulting in a brighter complexion with fresher, younger skin cells ready for hydration on the surface.

What I thought? 9.5/10
I Love Love Love this cleanser! It feels so luxurious thanks to its rich, creamy texture filled with all those divine ingredients. This cleanser will remove all the make-up from your face, without making it feel dry and sore. I loved how it made my face feel – hydrated, plump and glowing. 

Like the Aura Spray, it also works as aromatherapy, filled with the essential oils such as Eucalyptus, Chamomile, Rosemary and Bergamot. Those oils have calming effect so whenever I removed my make-up, I left the bamboo muslim cloth on my face and just breathed in the divine scent. 

How I used it? I applied a little bit on my face, then massaged it to melt all the dirt and make-up from my face, and then removed it all with the antibacterial muslim cloth. After using, my skin looked healthier, brighter and felt hydrated. I have dry skin, so it is difficult to find cleansers that will not leave my skin feeling tight. Oh and don’t forget, it is filled with peptide technologies which helps in maintaining your youth and beauty <3   

SPECIAL OFFER FREE Travel Size Worth £8.50 with your Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Miracle Cleanser 120ml

I am addicted to facial sprays, especially in the summer I always carry one in my handbag. I find them very refreshing and reviving. This Restore Aura Spray is something I never tried before, it feels like it is a miracle product which gives you inner strength whenever your are exhausted, overworked and cannot focus. 

It is filled with essential oils, organic Rose and Frankincense water, white sage, wild rose, tropical Basil, cold-pressed Lemon, rosemary and spearmint oils and crystal essences of Rose Quartz and Amethyst.

Extremely easy to apply, LOLA Nail Polish gives an intense colour finish with a short drying time, and contains UV filters to prevent discolouration. Characteristics: Intense colour, High gloss, Anti-discolouration Benefits: Expert Gel III technology, Easy application, Short drying time, UV filters.

What I thought? 8.5/10
Painting my nails is always a challenge as I struggle to hold still for more than 30 minutes. The Lola Blue Nail Varnish dries fairly quickly, with a gorgeous glossy finish. The colour is beautiful and very intense, I loved wearing it to work as it composed perfectly with black and white clothes. I felt that it was more resistant compared to other nail polishes as it stayed on looking perfect for about 3-4 days thanks to the Expert Gel technology. The packaging makes the product easy to use, as the square top prevents it from sliding from your hand. Lovely product!

Hi Beautiful 

You probably noticed that I started using more and more organic, natural products as they are better for health.  I particularly like beauty products from ingredients that you can also use in the kitchen or for medical purposes. I recently received products from Passion 4 Natural, a brand which products are made from 100% organic Aloe Vera which I really liked 🙂


Aloe Vera Body Scrub  (£10.95) 
This is my favourite product from Passion for Natural range. I go through scrubs like they are water, so as a scrub addict I can honestly say that this is a great product. It is quite light, with large walnut shells which exfoliate your skin gently, but still remove the dead skin cells. It is not as rough, so it will not leave your skin feeling sore and irritated. You can use this scrub all over your body, except for the face.

The aloe vera with its soothing properties will make your skin feeling smooth and fresh. For glowing skin and for best results it should be used twice a week.  I love the packaging with the clasps on both sides, which prevent water from getting in, and makes it easy to use wherever you are.

Aloe Vera Body Butter  (£8.95) 

I am very picky with my body butters as my skin is very dry and half of them do not even hydrate my skin. I like thick, and rich body butters so this one definitely fulfils this criteria. It is made with aloe vera, organic Shea butter and organic Cocoa butter which, as you can probably imagine smell divine. This body butter is very nourishing, yet it does not leave your skin feeling greasy and sticky. It gets absorbed quite quickly making your morning or evening routine much easier 😉



Aloe Vera Body Lotion (£6.95) 
As you probably realise by the name, it is a lighter version of the body butter, so it is perfect for applying in the morning before getting dressed. It can be used as daily moisturiser on face and body or as a soothing after sun lotion to calm irritated skin. Since it is unscented, it is perfect for summer if you don’t want to layer to many fragrances on your body. The best part about this product is that it is made with natural Betaine which has anti-ageing properties, so the lotion maintains skin elasticity and works on skin cells regeneration. I used it in the mornings before I went anywhere and my skin stayed fresh and moisturised throughout the day.

Aloe Vera Gel (£6.95) 

The Aloe Vera Gel is a must-have remedy. It can be used on dry patches, sunburns and to soothe irritated skin. It absorbs into the skin quickly, providing immediate relief to damaged areas. The gel is rather thick so it is very efficient and lasts for a long time. For cooling effect place in the fridge before using. 


Aloe Vera Moisturising Mist (£7.95) 
This mist is perfect if you are a busy person who does not have the time in the morning or evening to moisturise your skin. I am always on-the-go so this was a great product during my busy days as I could just spray it on my skin, get instant hydration and get dressed. What I love about this product  is the spray function which is very accurate and covers your skin, so there is no need for rubbing in. It also reaches all the hard accessible places. It is one of those revolutionary spray and go products. Definitely a must- have product for anyone who just needs a body lotion on the go *-*


Aloe Vera Lip Butter (£4.95) 

A lovely lip butter, hydrating and nourishing dry lips. It is a non-greasy product so it can be used as a moisturising base for a lipstick or lip gloss. It is a lightly fragranced product so it will not bother you throughout the day. I usually prefer lip butters in a stick to avoid germs, but I kept this one by my bedside table and used it in the evening to keep my lips hydrated during the night.

All of the products mentioned in this post are available from Passion For Natural website *-*
Ania’s advice
1. Use scrub twice a week
2. Use Aloe Vera products after sun
3. Be happy!

Hi Gorgeous

Recently I received a box of products from Derma V10, a beauty brand which provides beauty products for less. I was pleasantly surprised to see products which did not cost a fortune, and worked well on my skin. The hand cream, the multi-radiance cream and the day cream reviewed in this post are perfect examples showing that you do not need to spend a fortune to be beautiful <3 

Q10 Innovations Hand & Nail Cream with Beeswax (SPF 10)

I don’t know about you, but I never had a hand cream with an SPF so when I got this I was excited to try it, especially that you can often tell a woman’s age by looking at her hands. It is very important to take care of your hands, moisturise then and protect them from harmful sun rays to prevent premature ageing and age spots. I really like this hand cream, as it contains beeswax which smells lovely and is very nourishing. The cream also contains Vitamin E which revives tired looking skin, leaving your hands feeling smooth and glowing *-*

Q10 Innovations Multi radiance cream 

This is definitely my favourite item from this box. I have dry skin so I am always searching for that perfect face cream that will moisturise and regenerate my face. This cream contains all the essential ingredients to really nourish your skin (Vitamin B3, B5, E and Allantoin). It also contains SPF 15 so it is an ideal every day face cream. It is more thick than the day cream mentioned below, but then again it is also moisturising. I am in love with the smell of this cream, whenever I applied it, I was instantly in a good mood. A must-have product <3


Q10 Innovations Day Cream 

I like this face cream as it is very light and quickly absorbs into the skin. It contains the coenzyme Q10 and carnitine which make the skin look stunning, firm and radiant. What I liked about this cream is that is has this smooth texture, does not make my face greasy and I would apply it 30 seconds before going to work. It is perfect under make-up, keeping your face looking fresh and radiant. I like the simple packaging. 


Cocoa Body Butter

This is the most beautifully smelling product from this selection. It smells of sweet Shea butter, filled with goodness. This body butter is thick, moisturising, and skinks into the skin quite quickly. I did not know that the product would change my skin tone to more tanned (it washes off after a shower). If you want to have a darker, better looking skin, then give this a try, just make sure that it sinks into your skin before you put on some clothes as it may stain them.

Nose Pore Strips
I must admit I was always sceptic about those pore strips which are also supposed to unclog and remove blackheads as the ones I previously used had little effect on my skin. I decided to try this one from Derma V10 to see whether it will work. I was positively surprised as the more I used the strips, the better my skin looked, and the blackheads were removed every time I applied it. Very good product, and the best results are when used in a series, twice a week for a month.

Hair Chalk 
If you are not bold enough to permanently dye your hair green but really want to see how you would look, this is a solutions for you. This chalk is very straight forward to use, and washes off when you wash your hair. It is summer so no one will blame you for being a little crazy 🙂 
Availability 
These products are available in Poundland & Tesco 🙂

Ania’s advice
1. Try Derma V10
2. Let me know what you love
3. Stay stunning <3

Hello Divine Ones

I don’t know about you but I am obsessed with hand creams, I have one by my bed, in my bag, in my bathroom and at my desk. Everywhere in the house I have a hand cream 🙂 I recently discovered a brand called Sweet Cecily’s and I received their cream to test.

Sweet Cecily’s is an organic brand, delivering to you handmade, natural cosmetics. The products are free from SLS and parabens, and of course the brand is against animal testing, so the products are never tested on animals.


Packaging
Love the packaging! It looks really cute, and is very handy to keep at your workplace desk. The cream comes in a 50 ml jar as you can see, with a pretty design <3 


Smell

This cream smells like a summer morning, smelling of the gorgeous elderflower and almonds. The notes of elderflower are stronger than of the almond, so this scent is more floral. The combination of those two ingredients results in a fresh, light scent.

Texture

This cream is very light, and soft, so if you are not a fan of thick, greasy hand creams this is for you. It gets absorbed into the skin easily making your hands smooth and nourished. 


Impressions
I feel that I am being repetitive as I am always going on about almonds and how I love them. They are a great rejuvenator, and they have a firming effect on the skin. If you are like me, you are definitely going to love this hand cream. It smells delicious *-* It is also very moisturising, leaving my dry hand feeling soft, nourished and smelling beautifully. Definitely one of my work desk essentials <3

Available at: http://www.sweetcecilys.com (Price: :5.95)

Ania’s advice
1. To prevent signs of ageing, moisturise your hands
2. Keep a hand cream in every room
3. Keep your hand creams 3m apart 😉

Hi Goregous
Many of you will be probably going on an amazing adventure this summer, flying to another continent, travelling with your friends or working in a different country. This post will be useful for those of you who will go on a long haul flight or for those who want to have a little spa time during your flight. 

Step 1 Haircare
Let your hair down and put 5 drops of Aveda Dry Remedy on your hands and then run your hands through the hair massaging the product in. The Aveda oil is perfect for long haul flights as it consists of essential oils so it has also aromatherapy which will ensure you are relaxed and enjoy your flight. Tie your hair up so that it does not bother you during the spa routine.


Step 2 Remove Make-Up
Remove your make- up with cleansing wipes or Bioderma. I chose the Yes To Cucumber wipes as they are easy to use and they are good for normal and sensitive skin so probably most of you will be able to use them. Also they are 95% natural so should not cause any irritation, plus the packaging is very handy as you can easily open it and close it without the wipes drying up. 
Step 2 Refresh Your Skin
After I remove my make-up I like to spray my face with the L’Occitane Essential Water to refresh my skin and prepare it for the face mask. You can spray it directly on your face and neck and then pat try with your hands or spray it on a cotton pad and then apply it on your face. 
Step 4 Face Mask
How many times have you left the plane and felt like your skin is dry, looks disgusting and needs a facial? If I travel even for 3 hours I get this feeling so this part of the routine is crucial as it moisturises the skin, creates a protective layer between your skin and the airplane air which as you know is not always fresh and great for skin. The face mask I chose is a clear, moisturising mask from Lancome, so that it is not an embarrassment to keep it on 🙂 This mask is infused with Botanical Extracts and it is intensely hydrating, leaving the skin looking plump and healthy.
I learnt this from Lisa Eldridge who applies a thin layer of the mask first and massages it in, and if your skin is dehydrated the mask will sink in. Then you would apply another layer so that the mask is continuously working on your skin.


Step 5 Eyes

If you went partying the night before, look tired or just want to diminish your eye bags, I would recommend using the Clinique All About Eyes Cream. Apply it around the eyes to get rid of any puffiness, dark circles or lines. You can reapply during the flight. 

Step 6 Hand Care
Obviously you need to moisturise your hands. I suggest taking a small hand cream, I got one from L’Occitane with a gift set, and as you all know almond is my favourite scent and it is also firming so perfect for dry, tired looking skin.
Step 7 Lips

Remember to keep your lips moisturised during the flight <3 Use any moisturising lip balm or vaseline. 

Step 8 Repeat
If the flight is very long reapply the mask, lip balm, hand cream and the hair cream so that you get the most out of your flight and leave the plane looking like a celebrity *-*
Step 9 Sleep + Relax
If it is a long flight you should also enjoy yourself, relax and sleep so that when you land you look fresh and rested. Watch a movie you wanted to watch for a while, listen to music or read a magazine. This is your time to enjoy yourself and relax, you don’t need to do anything…

Step 10 Cleanse + Moisturise
When you are close to landing, start removing the products from your face. The best product to use would be something like Clarins One Step Cleanser or Bioderma. Soak a cotton pad with it, and then remove the mask from your face. You can spray your face with L’Occitane Essential Water and remove it with a cotton pad as well. Follow up with a sample size moisturiser which will act as a perfect base for your make-up.

Step 11 Make-up 
Reapply your make-up before landing so that you feel good, I would go for a natural look as your skin will look stunning so powder foundation, concealer and mascara will look perfect on your skin.

Step 12 Landing 

You look perfect, your skin looks fresh and plumped up! You look rested, glamorous and definitely ready for holiday, adventure or work. Be careful of all the attention though 😉

Ania’s advice:
1. Don’t be afraid to do your beauty routine on a plane
2. Use every opportunity to take care of your skin
3. Always look 10 years younger *-*

Divine one <3

This week has been revolutionary for Simple, as they have introduced products which everyone has been waiting for and many cannot live without – Micellar Cleansing Water and Micellar Cleansing Wipes.

Simple had a pop-up store at Covent Garden last week where you could talk to make-up artist about  skincare and the importance of cleansing the skin. There was also a food expert with whom you could discuss a healthy diet, how much antioxidants you need and how much water you should drink. The pop- up store focused on being kind so for an act of kindness you received a little gift from the store. You could also enjoy healthy elderflower lemonade, delicious canapes as well as the company of other beauty enthusiasts.

Micellar Cleansing Water
I am a fan of Bioderma so I am very picky with my micellar waters. The Simple Micellar Water removes make-up very well, and cleanses the skin so that when you go to sleep your skin can breathe and recover over night. Micellar waters are a great product as they are filled with micro elements which not only cleanse your skin but supply it with essential vitamins. It is a gentle product so it will not irritate your skin. It says it is hydrating, not as hydrating as Bioderma but overall for the price you would pay, this product is great!
Micellar Cleansing Wipes

I am not a fan of make-up wipes as they suck the moisture out of your skin. Cleansing wipes are a product designed to remove the first layer of make-up, and then it should be followed with a micellar water and toner. The Simple wipes are a good product, especially in a city like London where you need to carry cleansing wipes wherever you go to remove the pollution from your face or when leaving an overcrowded street. The Simple wipes are gentle, remove the make-up effectively and will not leave your skin dry as they are soaked in micellar water. Good product to use alongside the micellar water. I would not use it everyday as like mentioned before cleansing wipes when overused can cause dryness.

Ania’s advice:
1. Always remove your make-up before going to sleep
2. Use a micellar water 
3. Be kind to your skin

Hi Glamorous 🙂
Since the summer is fast appraoching I have been looking for some natural/organic products as when I am in the sun, I don’t want to have too many chemicals and products on my face. For the past two weeks I have been trying the products from Narynda and I adored them <3 

About Narynda
Narynda is a beauty brand ran by a lovely lady living in Cambridge. She has been working for seven years developing the skincare brand and she has been testing it on herself so you can be sure that the products are good quality and are effective 🙂 
The products she creates are made with natural ingredients, without parabens, strong chemicals or other strange substances. She developed the brand for herself and for her friends and when she saw it was helping them she decided to sell it to help others with skincare problems – she is amazing, check out her Diary
Narynda Toner
Ingredients
This toner is 100% natural. It is based on neroli essential oil which is known to repair damaged capillaries and has smoothing effect as well. The extracts from fruits are there to enhance cell renewal, make skin more elastic and stimulate the production of collagen. The product is designed for mature skin, so it is full of antioxidants which freshen up the skin and Hyaluronic acid which also works on cell renewal, smoothing the wrinkles and signs of ageing. 
Packaging
I cannot get over how beautiful the packaging of this toner is! It is probably the most gorgeous toner I have ever owned. It comes in a glass packaging, which makes it much more pleasant to use compared to the ordinary toners, and of course aesthetics of the product are very important for me when choosing what to buy. Also the pump makes life so much easier. I couldn’t count the times I poured too much toner on the cotton pad. Here I could control the amount of product released so I would go for 7 pumps per use 🙂 
Usage
This product should be used twice a day, in the morning and in the evening after cleansing your skin. I applied it with a cotton pad after my skin was clean in the evening to complete the cleansing process, and in the morning before applying make-up to freshen up the skin and prepare it for the day.
Impressions & Results 
I really like this toner. It is very gentle, it is not scented and it felt quite luxurious. You could immediately feel the skin moisturised, smoothed and revitalised. Although I don’t have wrinkles, it reduced the appearance tiredness and smoothed my skin. What I found unbelievable is that it was 100% natural and it is very effective, I feel like switching to organic skincare forever. It comes in a 100 ml glass bottle which is perfect for travel, great to use and looks gorgeous. Definitely a product I will repurchase! Available here (100 ml, £12.50) <3

 Narynda Face & Body Scrub 
Ingredients
This is another product made entirely of natural ingredients. The main ingredients are Bamboo Stem grains, Kaolin and Rice Grounds.  
– Bamboo Stem Grains – remove dead skin cells, lift the upper layers of skin and stimulate circulation in deeper layers. 
– Kaolin – clay which removes impurities, excess oil, and toxins. It unblocks pores, and the minerals draw out the impurities that can make your skin dull. 
– Rice Grounds – the little bits of rice grounds polish the skin, making it beautiful and glowing. 

Packaging
I like face scrubs that come in a tube as they are easy to use whilst in the shower. Again, gorgeous design and packaging <3 It is sold in 100 ml tube so you can always take it with you wherever you go which is a plus as the body scrubs are usually over 100 ml so having a multipurpose product when you have limited space is a win-win. 

Usage
This is a mild scrub so you can use it daily on the body, or if you prefer 3 times a week. I would recommend to use it twice a week on the face, neck and décolletage as face is more sensitive. Apply a small amount and massage in circular motion, then wash off with water and pat skin dry with a towel. 
Impressions & Results
Really nice product, you can feel it working when you use it, especially on the face. It cleanses the skin, removes dead skin cells and what is more, it does not leave your skin dry and tight. After multiple uses I saw an improvement in the skin tone, my face was glowing and my make-up looked a lot better as the skin was even and smooth. It is also an unscented product, but trust me, facial and body scrubs with this products, are definitely relaxing treatments. Available here (100 ml, £12.50)
Ania’s advice:
1. Try using organic skincare during the summer
2. Remember to do facial scrubs twice a week
3. Check out Narynda’s products <3
