Remington Ultimate Facial Care: Smooth & Silky Epilator


I love using facial care devices, even more so I love multifunctional devices because they save space. Today I am writing you about such a device that removes unwanted facial hair, cleanses the skin and can also massage the skin.

I’m one of those people who just can’t use any facial depilatory creams. Whatever cream I tried, it either slightly irritated my skin or I got an allergic reaction. I’m not sensitive and I’ve tried a variety of products over the years, but with facial depilatory creams I just didn’t click.

So I was looking for another solution to remove facial hair. On Notino I found the Remington Smooth & Silky facial epilator that has several other functions. In addition to the epilator, the device has three additional attachments – a trimmer, a massager and a cleansing brush. It runs on batteries and the attachments change depending on which treatment you want to do. The set also includes accessories for cleaning the attachments.


This is the first epilator I have ever used and I can say that the experience is not that painful at all. It’s a bit uncomfortable, but it’s not impossible to withstand. As you use it on your face, you should be gentle handed and not press the epilator very close to the skin. It helps if you tighten the skin so you have a better look on the hairs you want to remove. It won’t remove very tiny hairs, but that you can remove with the trimmer that comes in the set.remington-epilator

Bioderma Atoderm Products For Dry Skin


Two skincare products which I can’t go without are a face cream and a hand cream. Especially during the winter when I spend a lot of time indoors where it’s heated. In order to cope with dehydrated skin, I tried two Bioderma products.

I have a combination skin type, also acne prone and sometimes dehydrated due to cold and dry air. Combination skin type is a combination of two or more skin types, and the most common indicators of combo skin are: oily t-zone and enlarged pores on that area, normal to dry cheeks and the rest of the face.bioderma-atoderm-cream

Real Techniques Sponge Comparison


Apart from the Beauty Blender sponge, Real Techniques sponges are one of the most popular makeup application tools on the market. I have been using RT sponges for over a year now and they are really number one if you want a natural looking foundation on your face.

I must have said this several times, I was a strict advocate of brushes before I’d tried the Real Techniques sponge. I loved my brushes and I rarely used anything else other than them. I still like to use brushes today, but most of the time I am in a hurry and don’t have time for the whole procedure of using the sponge.

Today I’m going to compare the Real Techniques Original Collection Base large sponge and the Real Techniques Original Collection Finish mini base sponge. Both sponges are made from the same foam material, and the only difference is in size and purpose. After washing, the sponges should be well drained so they do not absorb the product you are going to be applying.

The Best Ingredient For Dry Skin – Shea Butter


Shea butter products are extremely good for dry and sensitive skin. Shea butter softens the skin, has an anti-inflammatory and healing effect and reduces redness on the skin. Today I am going to introduce to you two products that contain this amazing ingredient.

Shea butter is extracted from the nuts of shea tree that grow in tropical Africa, and has been used by African women for thousands of years for its medicinal properties. Due to its ability to penetrate deeply into the skin, Shea butter is very moisturizing and suitable for the most sensitive skin. It helps with various skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and seborrhea.

The high concentration of fatty acids and vitamins make it the ideal ingredient for softening the skin, which I noticed on my own skin using L’Occitane Karité BIO 100% Shea butter for dry skin. It is pure Shea butter that restores the hydrolipidic layer of the skin and provides a feeling of relief to dry and chapped skin.


L’Occitane Shea butter comes in a small metal container in the form of a balm. It is thick in texture and has absolutely no odor or color. It does not leave that oily residue on the skin as oil does, but blends with the skin and it is not noticeable that you have anything else on your face other than a moisturizer.

Simple Eye Makeup Look: 3 products


All I need on a daily basis is a good mascara, some eyebrow product, some foundation and a blush. Sometimes I put on an eye liner and that is about it when it comes to makeup. I’m always wearing the “no makeup” makeup look.

It is very important for me to have a good mascara that is easy to apply and will not smudge during the day. I currently use Maybelline Lash Sensational Lash Multiplying lengthening mascara for fuller lashes, in black. It extends the lashes very nicely, curls them and gives them volume.

Although it’s quite wet at first, it doesn’t give that spider effect to the eyelashes and you can still work with it. It has a rubber brush with ten layers of hair, the brush is curled so it can easily reach every eyelash. It separates the eyelashes nicely and the brush is the ideal size for applying mascara to both the upper and lower lashes.

Christmas Gift Ideas 🎅


Choosing gifts is one of my favorite activities during this pre-Christmas time and I am always full of ideas. What to choose as a gift for your loved ones? If you need some ideas for Christmas presents, you’re in the right place.

The ideal gift any woman would like to receive is a good foundation or a good face cream. Here I have to suggest Clinique Superdefense CC Cream with SPF 30, a great product for everyday use. It has a medium coverage, protects the skin from sunlight and evens out the complexion.

The best thing about this CC cream is that it doesn’t highlight the dry parts at all but gives it extra moisture. It covers some redness and irregularities, but it will not cover a lot of redness or inflamed acne. It provides hydration and the skin simply looks fresh and healthy for hours after application.

For myself, I chose the shade 02 Light, which blends perfectly with my complexion and looks really nice on my face. It has a very thick texture so I prefer to apply it with clean fingers, in the end, I just blend it a little with a sponge or brush.

La Roche-Posay Deodorant & Thermal Water


During these winter months, I am always reaching for gentle and nourishing products, both on my face and body. So this time I decided to try out whether aluminum-free deodorant really works and whether thermal water can improve skin condition.

For ease of use, I prefer spray deodorants so this time I chose La Roche-Posay Physiological spray deodorant. It is designed for sensitive skin and it contains no aluminum, alcohol or parabens.

Instead of aluminum, this deodorant is enriched with magnesium oxide, which has four times the absorption power and is highly effective in neutralizing odors.larocheposay-sensitivedeodorant

H&M Beauty Sponge


It’s difficult to find the ideal tool for applying makeup. A brush or a sponge – a question that has come through your mind at least once. Choose a brush if you want more coverage, choose a sponge if you want more of a natural look.

Personally, I was a big fan of brushes until I tried the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion sponge for foundation application. The whole makeup look made with that sponge looked very natural and I loved it because of that. Of course, the sponges have to be changed every few months, so it was time for me to replace mine.

I found a decent replacement for the RT brush and it is the H&M Makeup Queen sponge. When soaked, it increases in volume and it’s very soft. The sponge should be well drained before applying makeup, I usually drain it over the sink and then dry it with a towel so it’s not soaking wet but damp.
