Hello Stunning!
We are finally entering the summer period here in London and can put all the winter clothes away (although I am still wearing my fur vest from time to time). During the summer months we are usually outside and we often neglect skincare but we need to remember that especially during the high temperatures, skincare is super important! Recently, I have been testing different products from Mask House, a Korean Skincare Brand which has really cute products!

Celebrity Snail Extract Moisturising Gel Mask
This was my absolutely favourite product from this selection. The Celebrity Snail Mask is one of the best sheet masks I ever tried as it is made of gel and not fabric so it stays in place throughout the treatment. The mask comes in two parts which makes application super easy and convenient. The mask should be applied on cleansed skinned kept on for 15 -20 minutes. 
It is really hydrating and nourishing and provides and instant boost to the skin. It also has skin restoring, anti-ageing, regenerating and wrinkle removal properties. After the treatment, my skin felt really smooth and glowing and it felt recovered. Remember that it is important to do face masks twice a week especially if you live in a busy city to help your skin recover from all the pollution! Available here, for £13.36/ HK $132 for 3 masks. 

Diamond V-Sharp  Serum 
What I love about Korean products is that they have cute accessories. The V- Sharp Serum comes with two rollers – one for the neck and one for the face. The serum is suitable for all skin types and it aims to slim, firm and restore the skin’s moisture. This serum should be used at the end of the day as part of your evening routine to have time to work overnight. It needs to be applied on cleansed face and neck, and then massaged for 5-10 minutes with the rollers. The wider roller is designed for the face, and the single roller for the neck.
The serum comes in a bottle with a pump which is very convenient as it allows you to use just the right amount. You only need two/three pumps for the face. The rollers do an amazing job, as the facial massage is very relaxing, and really helps you unwind by the end of the day. The serum was a great base under my night cream and it did have a firming effect on certain areas such as neck and under eye zones. Available here, for £20.12/ HK $200. 

Diamond V-Fit Mask
I must say I was a bit hesitant towards this product as it is very unusual. It aims to contour your face, decrease chin fat, accelerate metabolism, tighten the skin as well as hydrate it. The set contains 5 masks, one band and a tape measure so that you can see the immediate effect. The best way to use it, is to apply it on a cleansed face, with the larger part on the cheeks and smaller parts around the upper lip. Secure it with the slimming band, pull the headstrap over the head and fasten it firmly. The mask should be kept on for 30 – 40 minutes, and once the time is up it is important to massage the jaw and neck until the essence is absorbed. 
The mask is easy to apply but it does feel a bit odd at first so do it when you are alone and no one can take pictures of you! The first time I used it, I felt a slight tingling and the mask had a warming effect, but you get used to it. After removing it, I did notice an improvement in the appearance of my chin, and it appeared slightly better. After a few uses, I noticed refined neck lines and firmer skin around the neck. As I am 22 the effects were gradual, but I am sure they would be more visible on a more mature person. A great product to try! Available here, for £20.12/ HK $200. 
 Ania’s advice:
1. Do face masks twice a week
2. Invest in a good serum 
3. Try Korean Skincare

Hi Gorgeous!
Once again, it is empties time! I always forget to write about them, so expect to see more empties posts over the upcoming weeks! This month’s empties include a bit of everything – skincare, bodycare, haircare and fragrance, enjoy!

Tom Ford Black Orchid
It is not the first time that this perfume lands in my empties. This is my favourite evening and winter fragrance as it is very attractive and unusual. The scent composition is divine and it includes Black Truffle, Ylang, Fresh Bergamot, Black Currant, Lotus Wood, Vanila, Sandalwood,  Balsam, Vetiver and Patchouli. It is very long lasting and just one spray is enough for it to last the whole evening. A must-have. Available for £56/30ml from Selfridges

L’Occitane Lavender Foaming Bath
Spring evenings are perfect for taking a bath and unwinding. I love using the lavender foaming bath from L’Occitane as it is very fresh and smells like lavender fields from Provence. All you need to add is one spoon into your bath to fill the bathroom with lavender scent. The liquid adds lots of bubble to your bath too so I was very happy with this product. It is important to choose a good quality bath soak as some of the substances are not as good for your skin. I would recommend using a trusted brand like L’Occitane. Available for £6 from L’Occitane
L’Oreal Elnett Satin Hairspray Normal Strength 
This is one of the best hairsprays available on the market. It provides the perfect hold, but still makes the hair look natural. Unlike other hairsprays it doesn’t stick the hair together and is easy to wash out. You can get it in large size or in travel size as seen above. Available for £3.23 from Boots
Toni and Guy Dry Shampoo Volume
Everyone needs a dry shampoo, Toni and Guy has really good quality ones, and if you are looking for volume, you will love it. It leaves your hair dry and clean, without making them look like you used a dry shampoo:) Available for £8.25 from Boots.

L’Occitane Neroli Orchidee Body Milk 

I am a fan of perfumed body milks as not only they hydrate my skin, but also can be used instead of perfume. It acts as a perfect perfume base if you want to layer scents. The scent is a mix of neroli and orchid which is ideal for spring and summer – it is one of L’Occitane’s best collection. Available for £5.50 from L’Occitane
Garnier Micellar Oil Infused Cleansing Oil
This is my go to micellar water. It works wonders, removing all the makeup, leaving my skin cleansed and nourished. My skin is quite dry and sensitive, so I am always on a look out for hydrating products. It comes in 400ml bottle, so it is a real bargain. Available for £3.99 from Boots.
 Ania’s advice:
1. Finish all your products 
2. Go rollerblading 
3. Enjoy the sun!

Hi Beauties!
I have super exciting news for you today! Nouveau Lashes has just launched a super innovative product – Lash and Lid Foaming Cleanser and Lash Cleansing Brush which is here to solve all your makeup cleansing problems. It is suitable for both natural lashes as well as lash extensions (finally!). You must definitely try it and enjoy clean lashes!

Lash and Lid Foaming Cleanser
The new cleanser from Nouveau Lashes is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. I always had this problem that I could never completely remove eye makeup, and no matter how many cotton pads I used up, there was always some product left. Now my problem has been solved by Nouveau Lashes. 
Results 
The product is very convenient and I use it everyday. I was so surprised that when I actually finished my usual routine thinking that my eyelashes were clean, I used this cleanser and the brush was black… This foaming cleanser helps to wash off all the makeup and leaves your eyelashes totally clean. Moreover, it is also hydrating and nourishing and conditions your eyelashes every time you use it. 
The cleanser contains anti-ageing ingredients which help to defend the skin against ageing effects as well as environmental aggressors. 
Packaging 
The packaging is very convenient and hygienic. The product comes out from a sterile plastic tube which allows you to use the right amount of product. I like how it is clear and I can see how much I have used up and if I need to restock. 

Consistency
As you can see above, the product is a soft, white foam which is scentless, as it is also hypoallergenic. 

Nouveau Lashes Brush 
This brush is super cute and it helps to cleanse your eyelashes. It is really soft and does not irritate the eyelashes. For a limited time only you will get it for free if you purchase the cleanser so hurry! 🙂 

Nouveau Lashes Strip Lashes
This month I will be trying my new Natural Strip Lashes so keep your eyes peeled for my Instagram selfies!

Where can you buy it?
The Lash and Lid Foaming cleanser are available from Nouveau Lashes Website, £14.99 
(brush included)!
Ania’s advice:
1. Invest in the Lash And Lid Cleanser
2. Try strip lashes
3. Take lots of selfies!

Hello Beauty
I hope you are enjoying the spring months and are finding some time to treat yourself! I have been trying to spend more time on skincare and facial massage, which is why the majority of this post will focus on skincare and wellness. Enjoy!

Nuxe Bougie Prodigieuse Candle
This candle is the best smelling candle I ever owned. The smell is a mix of magnolia, orange blossom and vanilla, and it is quite intense so even when you pass by it, it smells amazing. When you light it up, the whole room smells like the Prodigious Oil. An online exclusive available from Nuxe, for £7.

L’Occitane Neroli Orchidee Perfume
Stunning as always, the Neroli Orchidee range is one of my favourites from L’Occitane. The scent is ideal for spring as the main scent notes are orchid and neroli which are completed by orange and peach heart notes. A beautiful addition to my perfume collection. Available from L’Occitane, £56/50ml. 

The Body Shop Oils Of Life Twin-Ball  Facial Massager 
You need this in your life! This facial massager is the perfect skincare accessory as it really helps you to relax and unwind. It improves blood circulation, increases skin elasticity and helps to reduce puffiness and wrinkles. The best way to use it is to apply oil on your face and roll the massager on your face as instructed. The metal balls have a cooling effect so they not only help to reduce puffiness but have a reviving effect as well. This became my everyday essential! Available from The Body Shop, for £16.
LuLuLun Pro Vitamin – C Sheet Masks 
Sheet masks are perfect for when you want to do a face mask but don’t want to deal with the mess and washing it off. They are ideal for hydration and nourishing the skin. This mask from LuLuLun is filled with Vitamin C which brightens the complexion. There are 7 sheet masks available in the pack so you can either use it every other day or once a week. The packaging is very convenient as it can be sealed and used even when travelling. I love using sheet masks on long haul flights as they prevent your skin from getting dry and improve its appearance prior to landing :). Available from Amazon, for £8.41.

Lin And Lo Colour Lip Pencil Shade Nude 
This lip pencil is ideal for contouring your lips prior to applying lipstick. It is so important to use a lip pencil in order to define the shape of the lips and prevent lipstick from smudging as well. I liked this shade as it is ideal for daily makeup and can be used with a variety of nude shades. To make your lips look perfect remember to exfoliate, moisturise before and after applying lipstick and use a lip pencil and lipstick. The lip pencil is available from LinAndLo, for £15, and the sharpener is available from LinAndLo, £4.

Ania’s advice:
1. Take care of your skin
2. Treat yourself to a gorgeous candle 
3. Start a new sport and get ready for summer!

This is a perfect hair accessory for the spring months. You can wear it with your hair down or up and it which will instantly make you look stunning. 
Mindfulness Practice: Walking mindfully
Nowadays we constantly keep going and we never stop. It is so important to take a break, relax and think about ‘nothing’ sometimes, enjoying your empty mind. I used this card one afternoon in the park and it made me feel so relaxed and at peace…

Simply Argan Night Oil 
We all know the amazing benefits of Argan Oil, especially on skin. The calming and relaxing oil is ideal during bedtime as it calms and relaxes your senses. If you have trouble sleeping, you should definitely give this a try as it contains three essential oils such as lavender, sweet orange and sandalwood which smell beautifully when mixed together.

This is one of my favourite items from the Artemis and Xena box. This stationary set is from Ellen designs and it is super cute! Inside you will find 5 cards and envelopes, a notebook and post-it stickers which you can use to help you arrange your diary. I find stationary so useful, especially for celebrations, organising my agenda and thank you notes. Available from Rachel Ellen, £7.99.

In the box there were two sachets Yerba Zing and Yebra Mint. For those of you who never heard of Yerba, it is a super plant which has a lot of health benefits such as hydration, stimulation and metabolism boosting. It is also filled with antioxidants as well as vitamins so it is great for your skin. My favourite was Yerba Mint. The tea is available from Yoyo, £4.50/14 sachets
In addition to all these lovely products, the box is filled with a lot of positive cards, notes, and details which immediately work as mood lifters. I would definitely recommend this box even as a one-off purchase as it is really worth the price! You can subscribe on Artemis And Xena Website, £15 per month or £12 if you choose a 3 month plan!

Hello Stunning! 
I hope you are as excited about the spring as I am! I could not wait for the cold winter months to be over and for spring to begin hence I got this beautiful flowers to celebrate the new season. The last few weeks I have been testing products from SkinYoga, a brand which features 100% natural skincare. 


SkinYoga Sandalwood and Saffron Face Mask 
The products from SkinYoga come in powder form so that you can store them safely, and once mixed with water they become active. This sandalwood mask has anti-ageing as well as brightening benefits. The sandalwood reverses signs of ageing, and the saffron improves the skin texture. A third ingredient is walnut which help to regenerate the skin, regaining its elasticity as well as boosts skin’s circulation. This mask is designed for dry and very dry skin.
As you can see the mask comes in powder form, so you need to mix one teaspoon with few drops of water. I applied the mask on my face and neck and waited for 15 minutes before rinsing it with water. My skin felt instantly revived, it looked brighter and no longer tired. The mask comes in a cute wooden box, and when you purchase the full size, the glass jar is much bigger and the cap is also made from glass. A nice addition to my face mask collection 🙂 Available from Naturallybetteryou£27/50g. 

SkinYoga Coffee Body Scrub
As you all know I am a body scrub addict which I use once or twice a week so I was very excited to try this. Coffee scrubs are ideal for skin as they not only get rid of dead skin cells but also reduce cellulite, stretch marks, scars and help to even out the skin tone. The coffee scrub from SkinYoga is 100% natural, free from parbens, and artificial fragrances, but it still smells delicious like freshly brewed coffee.

The best way to use it, is to wash your body as usual, then apply the scrub on wet skin and massage it in circular motion. Then turn off the water for 2-3 minutes and let the oils hydrate your skin. Wash it off with water and pat dry your skin. After this scrub my skin felt so hydrated, nourished and revived that I wanted to repeat this process again during the week. This scrub is a must-have! Available from Naturallybetteryou, £34/200g. 

Ania’s advice 
1. Try natural skincare products
2. Use an exfoliator once a week
3. Find a time for a face mask.

I am excited to announce the launch of two new boxes by Latest In Beauty. Latest In Beauty once again did not disappoint with its new launch of beauty boxes in collaboration with Disney. The boxes are themed around the greatly anticipated film, Beauty and The Beast.

The Beauty Box is of course for her, and the Beast Box is for him. I think it is such a wonderful idea, that Latest In Beauty included men in their boxes, and I hope it will encourage them to finally get their own skincare products and stop stealing ours! Scroll down to see what is included in each of the fabulous boxes!


The Beauty Box – For Her 
The Box contains everything you need to look stunning during a fairytale ball! Inside you will  find 7 products from skincare, haircare and makeup categories which will become your daily essentials.

Latest In Beauty Gold Compact Mirror – This limited edition mirror is one of my favourites from the box! Not only it is a beautiful addition to my makeup bag, but will allow me to finally stop using my iPhone camera to see how I look.

Oribe Gold Lust Dry Shampoo – Every girl’s handbag essential, Oribe Gold Lust Dry Shampoo will ensure your hair always looks clean and luscious. It is very light, doesn’t weigh your hair down and can give you another clean hair day (or two). And the smell is irresistible! 


Gatineau Radiance Enhancing Gommage – There is nothing more glamorous than clear, glowing skin. Use the Gatineau Radiance Enhancing Gommage to cleanse and exfoliate your skin. Filled with enzymes and Vitamin C, it will clean your pores and refine skin texture.  
Caudalie Vinosource Moisturising Sorbet – I always talk about hydration, and we all know that hydration is the key to glowing skin. I love the consistency of this product as it literally feels like a sorbet, which quickly sinks in and leaves your skin hydrated and prepped for makeup. And we all know you just cannot go wrong with Caudalie. 

Burt’s Bees Lipstick In Sunset Cruise Or Blush Basin (Blush Basin above) – Burt’s Bees are the best lip balms on the market as they are made with 100% natural ingredients, they always hydrate and nourish the lips, fixing even the most chapped lips. The lipstick is exactly the same but has an additional benefit of colouring your lips. I am so glad, Latest In Beauty included this lipstick, as finally I found a hydrating, and intense coloured lipstick. A must-have.

Soigne Betteraves Rouges Nail Polish – No other nail polish colour is as elegant as red. It goes with every evening dress, unless you decide to go very avant garde. The brand creates luxury ECO nail polishes, which are formulated without carcinogens and 85% of the ingredients are plant- sourced materials. ECO friendly and glamorous.

L’Occitane Roses Et Reines Hand And Nail Cream – L’Occitane has the best hand creams, and I always talk about them, so of course I am a fan of this product as well. The cream is very hydrating, and will be your rescue product even if your hands are extremely dry. It is perfect for spring time as it smells like freshly cut roses. 
The Beauty Box is worth £80, but costs only £20! Get your hands on one from Latest In Beauty Website

The Beast Box – For Him 
The Beast Box is worth over £100, but is available for only £20. It includes six classic men’s grooming products: a Gillette Fusion ProGlide FlexBall Razor, Penhaligon’s N°33 Face and Beard Scrub, The Refinery Shave Foam Gel, The Great British Grooming Co Beard Oil, Gatineau Aquamemory Moisture Replenish Eye Roll-On and Lalique L’Hommage à l’Homme Voyageur fragrance (detailed review coming soon). 

Ania’s advice:
1. Get the Beauty Box 
2. Use the stunning box to store your jewellery 
3. Treat your loved one with The Beast Box

Hi Beauty!
I cannot believe February is already over, can you? This year is going so fast! So many things have been going on, I haven’t had as much time for blogging but I promise I will try to write more frequently, as I have a lot of things to write about. This time, I have an amazing brand to tell you about – Environ! 

Environ AVST1 
This skin care range is super interesting as it comes in 5 variations, each has gradually higher strength of vitamins A and C, peptides and other collagen boosting ingredients. A person moves from AVST1 to AVST5 allowing then skin to adjust to the ingredients, ensuring the maximum long-term benefits and avoiding potential retinoid reactions. 
The creams aim to nourish, protect and boost the collagen production. They contain amazing ingredients such as Antioxidants, Rosemary Oil extract, Green Tea extract, Reservaratrol, Vitamin A, Vitamin C. What is interesting is that the aim of this product is to stimulate the skin to be moisturised and protected by its own structure and not by the cream.
I must say I liked this product a lot. It comes in a plastic tube with an airless pump, meaning that it is very hygienic, as it prevents bacteria and germs from entering. I used it twice a day, in the morning before applying make-up and in the evening before going to sleep. The cream is quite light, and its sinks into the skin quickly which is a great advantage. After a week of using, I noticed that my skin was nourished, felt hydrated and looked brighter. I am excited to see the longterm results of this cream because so far I am positively impressed. 
In addition this product is loved by many celebrities some of which include Sienna Miller, Dolce Gabbana, Stella McCartney, Kate Winslet, Naomie Watts and many others. Definitely worth a try! Available for £41 


Environ Youth EssentiA Vita Peptide Eye Gel 

This range promises to improve the skin’s overall appearance by reducing visible signs of ageing and creating a smoother and healthier skin. It is based on an industry-leading Vitamin STEP-UP SYSTEM, designed to help skin become more gradually comfortable with increased levels of Vitamin A and other ingredients.

This gel works best when applied twice a day, in the morning and evening around the entire eye area. It works wonders as not only it cools down the eye area, helping to reduce the dark circles, but also hydrates the skin and smoothes down the fine lines. Although I am quite young, I can honestly say that I did notice improvement of appearance around my eye area. The skin was hydrated and brightened even when I was tired. Wonderful product!

Head over tohttps://vitaminskincare.co.uk/  for online consultation!

For stockist details head over to www.iiaa.eu

Ania’s advice:

1. It is all about skincare 
2. Use a cream with SPF even if it is cloudy 
3. Don’t forget your eye cream!

Hello Beauty!
I hope you are all doing well, and despite January being cold and rainy, you have managed to appreciate it and use it as an excuse to spend cosy evenings at home and learn about Hygge (the art of cosines). I have definitely used the cold evenings for pampering and ‘me’ time. This month I have been loving hydrating hair products, stunning fragrances, and luxurious makeup products.

Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation SPF10 
I don’t usually use liquid foundation but lately I discovered this stunning foundation from Chanel. It is very light but provides the perfect coverage. Unlike other foundation, it does not feel heavy and does not crease. After applying my skin felt very hydrated and looked natural and flawless. Like all Chanel products, the packaging is beautiful and the foundation is very convenient to use thanks to the pump. A must-have. Available from Feelunique,  for £36.

Aura – Soma Pegasus Perfume 

I find this brand really interesting as it has a fascinating brand philosophy. Aura-Soma Pegasus fragrances demonstrate the visual and non-visual energies of colour, combining the energies of both essential oils and herbal extracts, evoking a beautiful aroma and the potential to enlighten the wearer’s mood... Every fragrance has its own properties which are also reflected in the design of the packaging. The brand also rejects the use of synthetics and uses only natural, essential oils from plants and flowers to create these fragrances. I suggest you have a look at the website to see the philosophy behind each fragrance!

I recently received some gorgeous testers from Aura Soma and over the last few weeks I have been testing all of them to find out my favorites. The ones that particularly caught my attention were the below:

75 – Top Middle and Base Notes consist of: Orange, Jasmine, Neroli, Patchouli, Vanilla. This is quite an earthy smell, you can smell the patchouli mixed with neroli, so overall the scent is quite heavy with hints of spices.

30 – Top Middle and Base Notes consist of: Bergamot, Olibanum, Oudh, Jasmine, Patchouli, Cedarwood, Amber, Vanilla, Saffron, Vetiver, Musk. This scent is quite heavy, and spicy, I loved wearing it in the evenings. This was my favourite out of all of the Aura Soma fragrances.

56 – Top Middle and Base Notes consist of: Nutmeg, Violet, Ylang Ylang, Jasmine, Powder Notes, Sandalwood, Amber, Musk. It is sweet and the prominent note is the powder, and most of my friends loved it!

80 – Top Middle and Base Notes consist of: Ylang Ylang, Jasmine, Lily, Carnation, Cinnamon, Benzoin, Rose, Vanilla. You can really smell the jasmine with a hint of vanilla, perfect for both day and night. 

39 – Top Middle and Base Notes consist of: Bergamot, Lemon, Geranium, Black Pepper, Nutmeg, Ylang Ylang, Vanilla, Cedarwood. This is probably the most subtle one. It can be easily worn during the day, I loved the zesty notes mixed with Cedarwood and vanilla.

All available from Aura-Soma website, for £85/50 ml

EMJ Classic Make-up Bag Large

Did you know that fabric make-up bags need to be exchanged every few months as they can accumulate bacteria, dirt and make-up? I know many of you cannot stand the thought of throwing your make-up bag away as it has been with you literally everywhere, but I am sorry, you need to let it go…
You can replace it with the amazing, super hygienic large make-up bag from emj. The bag can fit everything, including your hairbrush, and it can be cleaned regularly with an antibacterial wipe which will ensure that your skin will not be exposed to germs and old makeup. It is super convenient as it can hold everything, can be easily cleaned and has a fashionable faux leather element at the top. And the best part of it all is that you will not have to say goodbye to it soon! the emj company website, for£24. 
Real Food Source Cold Pressed Coconut Oil
You probably noticed the crazy hype around Coconut oil and its endless amount of uses. I love using it as a body moisturiser, when creating a body scrub or a lip scrub. It smells super yummy, and if you like coconut, then you won’t mind smelling like pina colada. 
What is amazing about this oil, is that it is 100% natural, so you avoid all the chemicals, silicones and ‘not so good’ substances. There are certain criteria that are important when choosing a coconut oil. It must be organic, extra virgin, cold pressed and it should be in a glass jar. The prices for extra virgin, coconut oil can range from £5-£50 a jar, depending on quality, brand and size. My current favourite is from RealFoodSource, for £4.19 for 500ml. 

Joyce Moisture Recovery

I always discover that during the winter months my hair starts to tangle, look frizzy and it becomes unmanageable. I blame it on the wooly hats, the weather extremes and the scarves. During those months, our hair is exposed to damaging effects, and so it is important that we use hydrating products such as Joico Moisture Recovery to hydrate it and lock in the moisture. 
Joico Moisture Recover is a leave-in moisturiser which you apply after washing your hair (and brush through). It hydrates the hair, so when it dries it is easy to brush through, smooth and looks glossy. Available from BeautyBay, for £9.25. 

L’Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil 

This oil is perfect pre-styling. It can work wonders even on a bad hair day. It contains a precious blend of 6 flower extracts which are great for the hair, providing the necessary nutrients that help it regain strength and make it look glossy. It can also be used as a heat protectant and as a hydrating oil on wet hair. I alway repurchase this oil as it has so many uses, is long lasting and really works. Available from Boots, for £9.99. 

Ania’s advice:
1. Throw away your old make-up bag
2. Take care of your hair 
3. Meet your girlfriends on Valentine’s Day
