Hello!

Recently I went to the launch of the new Listerine Nightly Reset Mouth Wash, and I realised that we don’t talk enough about dental health, which is part of our everyday routine. It is so important to take care of your teeth, that I decided to write a post about this new product from Listerine, and everything I learnt during the press day!

IMG_8190

Listerine Nightly Reset

We live in a very past-paced environment, and instead of eating three proper meals, we usually end up having one meal, and snack throughout the day. Every time we eat, we obviously expose the teeth to acids, sugars and other harmful substances. In order to protect the teeth, we should brush them 2-3 times and use mouthwash to restore and replenish enamel and keep the flouride in the mouth.

The Nightly Reset by Listerine should be used twice a day before and after sleep. It strengthens the teeth and works whilst you rest. The formula is high in flouride, which restores weakened enamel and resets your whole mouth during your beauty sleep! It also reduced plaque build-up, get accumulation and acted production. I also love the amazing ‘Midnight Mint’ Flavour, which is very refreshing. I have been using it twice a day, and I can admit that it feels like its working! Listerine Nightly Reset is available from Boots, £3.50.

 

Ania’s advice:

1. Focus on your teeth

2.Remember to use mouthwash 🙂

3.Always get your beauty sleep

Hello!

In recent years, I have always been travelling during the summer months, but I realised there are so many destinations which are still hot during September, October and November. This year, I am planning to go somewhere sunny during the Autumn, and I would strongly recommend you do the same! Here are some of my beach essentials that I have been loving during the past few months. Enjoy!

save-new-1

Nuxe Shimmering Dry Huile Prodigieuse Or

You know that golden glow everyone wants? You can now recreate it on your skin, even if you are not tanned, using the Shimmering Dry Huile Prodigieuse Or from Nuxe. The nourishing oil is filled with thousands of shimmering particles which make your skin sparkle. It smells lovely too, so you can layer you scents on top.

Available from Nuxe Website for £34/100ml. I strongly suggest you order from Nuxe’s website directly as they have an amazing loyalty club, and there are always fantastic discounts and offers available so you get lots of gifts 🙂

Glossier Coconut Balm Dotcom

In the last month, I spent two weeks on the beach, mostly in the water, kitesurfing. Last year I felt that the salt water, sun and wind really dry out my skin, hair and lips, so this time I compiled together very hydrating products. The lip balm from Glossier really worked wonders, and kept my lips hydrated throughout the day. I am a huge fan of the coconut flavour as it smells and tastes amazing. Available from Glossier Website for £10.

save-new-1

L’Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil

This is one of my favourite hair products of all times. I literally use it every single day to provide moisture and nutrients to my hair. It contains a precious blend of 6 flower extracts ideal for hydrating the hair, smoothing down the frizz and adding that healthy glow.

It is designed for all hair types so I always recommend it to anyone, as it can be used before shampooing as a mask, pre-styling or as a finishing touch to any hairstyle. Also this product is a total bargain! Available from Boots for £6.66.

Nuxe Hair Protection

It is crucial to really take care of your hair if you do water sports in order to protect them from the damaging effects of the salt water, the wind and the sun. Every time I go on a surfing trip, I take a hair protective product with me. I must say, I really liked the Hair Protection from Nuxe as it hydrates the hair, and stays on during the day thanks to its oily composition.

As all Nuxe products, it smells wonderfully, and I received a lot of compliments about the scent on the beach. After a week of kitesurfing, my hair looked fabulous, hydrated and was super shiny. A summer must- have! Available from Nuxe Website for £10.50.

Nivea Sun Q10 Anti-Age & Anti Pigments Face Cream SPF50

I am obsessed when it comes to sunscreen, and I usually avoid exposing my face to the sun whenever possible, however if you love water sports, you will end up in the sun most of the time. It is super important to choose high quality sunscreen to avoid any pigmentation and early signs of ageing.

The product I recently discovered and absolutely adored is the Nivea Sun Q10 Anti-Age & Anti Pigments Face Cream SPF50. It has a high UVA/UVB protection against sunburns and premature skin ageing, and the Q10 formula helps to prevent wrinkles as well as pigment spots. The cream itself has a pleasant smell, and leaves the skin feeling soft and hydrated. As I usually spent two hours in the water without a break I also needed something which wouldn’t melt away, and this cream was perfect. I will definitely repurchase it. Available from Boots for £8.

Nivea Sun Moisture Mousse Face Cream SPF50

This is another sunscreen that worked very well for me during my trip. It is super light, easy to apply and gets absorbed easily into the skin. It did not leave any white residue on my skin and I definitely did not feel like I had any sunscreen on. I must say that both of the creams from Nivea were amazing, and when in the water, I did not feel like they were being washed away easily. If I will go again on holiday in October, these will definitely be in my beach bag! Available from Boots for £8.

Omorovicza Queen Of Hungary Face Mist 

One thing I never leave my home without is a face mist. I am obsessed with the Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Mist as it is super refreshing, and it smells beautifully! It contains nourishing blend of Rose, Sage an Orange Blossom Waters which not only revitalise your skin, but leave it feeling hydrated. The mist contains Omorovicza’s Healing Concentrate which infuses minerals deep into the skin, and helps to keep it youthful.

I constantly use this mist during the summer months, as it really relaxes me, and calms me down. It is ideal for long days on the beach when you need to feel fresh and gorgeous! The glass bottle is also dreamy, and feels super luxurious!  Omorovicza Queen Of Hungary Mist is available from Look Fantastic for £50.

No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced BB Facial Sun Protection SPF50 Fair

I never wear makeup to the beach, but one product I love using is a BB Sunscreen. I recently tried the one from No7, and I think it works very well with my skin tone. The BB cream brightened my complexion, giving it a healthy, tinted glow. Another reason I chose this product is that it has SPF50 and you should always use SPF50 on your face, as it helps to avoid dark spots, hyper-pigmentation and early signs of ageing.

This BB cream also contains peptides which help restoring a more youthful skin. I would recommend it if you are planning to stay on the beach or by the pool, not for watersports. No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced BB Facial Sun Protection SPF50 is available from Boots for £15.

Ania’s advice:

1. Always apply sunscreen

2. Plan your Autumn getaway

3. Try kitesurfing!

save-new 6Hello!

I am sorry I haven’t been posting as much but I really have been enjoying this beautiful summer! I mean, did you know it is the best summer we have had since the 70s? Do enjoy it as much as you can, as I still find it hard to believe how long it has been fabulous! Finally we have an endless summer in London <3

I recently discovered a lovely non-profit brand, Kohl Kreatives which has an amazing brand philosophy. The founder, created this brand to help individuals feel better about their appearances, find their confidence and change their lives. The brand is all about charitable projects providing free international workshops throughout the year. The #myarmour campaign is all about regaining self-esteem and using cosmetics to help achieve that.

Kohl Kreatives recently launched the beautiful Shapes Collection. The brushes are flexible, to ensure easy and precise makeup application. What I absolutely love about these brushes is that they stand by themselves, and since they are gorgeous, they are the perfect decoration for my dressing table. The fibre is super soft, vegan and perfect for sensitive skin. The makeup application is very easy, and the brushes leave a flawless finish. The 3ss3ntials are available from Kohl Creatives Website, for £34.99.

 

Ania’s advice:

1. Experiment with make-up

save-newHi!

I hope you are all enjoying the beautiful summer vibes we are getting this June from London’s weather. I have been super busy travelling around Europe lately, and in the meantime I have been trying new skincare brands. An interesting brand that I discovered recently is JK7 which is a 100% natural, premium skincare brand.

The products are made with active and very precious ingredients, including premium essential oils, signature extracts and powerful JK7 Satyric Herbal Extracts. As the products are 100% natural, the fragrance is composed of essential oils, which not only benefit the skin but also your mind. The products can be kept open only for 3 months which also proves their natural composition.

All the products are handmade in Hawaii, in a boutique production facility which is also part of the world’s first holistic, non-medical stress centre. The products are rather expensive but the high price is based on the cost of the natural organic raw materials which cost up to $55,000 per kilogram/ litre.

I really liked using the Foaming Face Wash which is the perfect face wash after a long day, as it smells of calming patchouli and ylang ylang. It was very gentle, and worked amazingly as a second step of my skincare routine. It contains self- processed extracts of organic herbs, Rose flower buds, Calendula as well as German Chamomile Flowers. It is also high in Vitamin C & E and the signature extracts high in anti-oxidants. A very luxurius treat after work. Available from Grace Belgravia for £250/100ml.

 

Ania’s advice

1. Try Natural Skincare PRoducts

2.Sort out your beauty cabinet

3.Plan a weekend getaway

Hi Lovely!

How are you all finding autumn? I hope you are enjoying the cosy evenings, wrapped in a warm blanket, drinking hot chocolate with marshmallows. I am actually really struggling  to leave the house in the evenings as it is getting so chilly so if you have any tips, please let me know!

8B02F80D-1820-417D-BC9E-7A14847D5002

Omorovicza Queen Of Hungary Mist 

This is my latest discovery that I am obsessed with. This face mist is an absolute        must-have for anyone, especially travellers, office workers and skincare lovers. I use it all the time, in the mornings and evenings as a toning mist, and during the day to refresh my skin. It hydrates, refreshes as well as balances the skin. The scent is a mix of neroli and rose which helps to destress. It can be used on all skin types and it is now officially my top face mist. Available from Omorowicza Website, for £48.

D25A620B-CCC8-4B9D-89CA-957052F84575

Essentialle Revival Nectar 

This is another product that I recently discovered, as it just launched in the UK. The Revival Nectar is designed for dry and lack lustre skin so I was quite excited to try it. I applied it after cleansing my skin in the evening, before applying moisturiser and I always massaged my skin when applying as instructed on the box. I can honestly say that it helped me de-stress and relax and I noticed my mood improved after my skincare routine. The Revival Nectar also hydrated my skin, improving its colour and adding a subtle glow.

It is filled with rich ingredients such as Pomegranate seed oil, Rose geranium oil, Roship fruit oil, Patchouli leaf oil amongst others which contribute to skin renewal, cell regeneration and reduction of wrinkles. Available from Essentialle Website, for £70.

Nu Colour Lip Plumping Balm

I can never say ‘no’ to a new lip balm especially if it promises to hydrate and plump my lips. I really like Nu Skin for their skincare products, so trying their make-up products from Nu Colour range was also exciting.

The Nu Colour lip balm has a tingling effect on the lips, making me feel awake and refreshed throughout the day. It also hydrated and softened my lips so it was perfect for this cold month. It has a delicate peppermint scent and comes in a stunning silver packaging. An autumn/winter – must have! Available from Nu Skin Website, for £23.24.

Miss Gorgeous I Am Not Lipstick Applicator

This is the cutest makeup applicator I have ever seen. It is also very useful as you can put it in your handbag or makeup bag without getting worried about foundation/concelear marks. Its compact design, also ensures hygienic application as the plastic cover prevents germs and dirt from sticking to the applicator. You can find lots of other cute makeup accessories on Miss Gorgeous Website, and I want them all! Available from Miss Gorgeous Website, for £8.99.

Tangle Teezer The Original Purple Glitter Hairbrush 

Happy Birthday to Tangle Teezer which has now been with us for 10 years. To celebrate this special occasion, Tangle Teezer created a limited edition brush – The Original in Purple Glitter. I love this design as it has this stylish retro feel to it, and who doesn’t like glitter? I usually have Tangle Teezer in my handbag so that I can use it on the go as it is super compact and easy to carry wherever I go. Available from Very Exclusive Website, for £11.
