I’ve been fighting with my dry, dehydrated skin for the last few weeks (well, always, but more lately) and was at my wit’s end because I could barely wear foundation – it would cake, show my fine lines, and generally sap all moisture out of my skin . But lucky me , I received an offer from Glamour Beauty Club if I would like to try and review this serum . Of course I said yes please , who wouldn’t . So I got a delivery about 7 days later yay .
Pros of this Caudalie serum:
* Does feel hydrating and dethirsting
* Sinks in instantly
* Skin is left calm, plump and pampered
* Light non sticky texture
* No skin irritation or breakouts
* Nice scent
* Convenient packaging
* Might be too heavily fragranced for some
* The hydrating effect doesn’t last all day
Overall I’m pleased with SOS serum and apply it every morning before my moisturiser but my favourite use of it is as a primer before heavier coverage matte foundations. They apply like a dream and the finish is much more natural without any added greasiness, especially when combined with a light spritz of Caudalie Eau de Raisin as a finishing touch. I would absolutely recommend this serum to anyone who like to boost skin hydration .
It is little bit pricey at £29 but definitely worth trying . I know I will be making purchase after my complementary tube runs out .
Recently I have been hearing a lot about carbonated face masks and I really wanted to try it, if it really works.
I had a big dilemma which one to buy as is that many different types of it and reviews are always split into good and bad of course, so I just went with my gut feeling and made a purchase trough Amazon UK 😆
The carbonated bubble clay mask has a cute packaging and outside the packaging, there is a step by step instructions and an illustration on how to use the clay mask itself so it is less hassle. It comes with a white color container and a cute angel picture. when i opened it, the color of the mask dark grey ish , with consistency of sticky slightly creamy substance which is quite easy to apply . When I use it, I spread it over my face except eye and lips area . Clay mask is cool on my face with the tingling sensation ,I can feel it working after just couple of minutes, the bubbles beginning to appear and i can feel they penetrating my skin , I usually leave it on for around 15 than just clean my skin with a warm water . After cleansing, my face feels smooth and soft as well as brightened . I am very pleased with my purchase and I would happily recommend this face mask, It makes me feel truly pampered for the price of £8.99
Hopefully my short review will be helpful for you guys.
Have lovely day ❤
I always loved Herbal Essences haircare, simply because they made my hair look great and fragrance of them is just to die for. When I found out that Savvy circle is launching a Herbal Essences project I couldn’t be more exited , as it is a whole new collection . Well I was very pleased that I have made it into the team, and pretty much few days after receiving an email courier knocked on my door. As you can see on the picture above I received nice set of -Cucumber and green tea shampoo and conditioner , which is very light on my hair, after usage my hair feel very soft and manageable and clean feeling lasts all day , fragrance is very fresh and sweet.
Second set- Argan oil again light texture fantastic fragrance but buy the end of the day I feel like my hair are getting little bit greasy, not sure if this is set for me as even though I do colour my hair they’re not very damaged or very dry, personally think that this set would be suitable for persons with dry and damaged hair.
Last but not least White strawberry and sweet mint I think this set is my favourite out of three as my hair are very shiny, soft and feeling strong at the same time not mentioned again how good they smell.
I am happy to say that I would definitely recommend Herbal Essences new “bio renew ” collection not just because they smell great but you can feel the difference on your hair , and also happy that they don’t contain any gluten- silicones, and can be used on coloured hair without any restrictions .
All I can say is that give it a go you will not be disappointed.
Lots of love
I love a good soup and home cooking. We are all very busy this days but we also have think about what we eat .Home cooking is very easy and doesn’t need to be complicated. I know this soup is probably out of season but I really liked sound of it. Yesterday was very cold and mirsable so I thought I will give it a go.
It was so easy to prepare and cheap as well and what’s more important pretty quick.
If you want to try it here is recipe for you my friends 😉

Bring to the boil than reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes until squash is cooked trough. Blitz until smooth with the hand blender or food processor and serve hot .

I am very pleased with my Glossybox this month, and I know I will be using all of the products I have received.
What’s in the box ? Well I’ve got the latest trend in co-washing with Elgon’s Deliwash, Sport FX new British brand that delivers double on everything and is specially formulated with gym-goers (as well as anyone on the move) . ModelCO countur stick, Merci Handy and Rodial mascara.
That’s why I love my monthly Glossybox. Beeing able to try great products, some of them I didn’t even heard of before. And thanks to that I have already added some products too my shopping list .
Very happy bunny 😍
Secret scent box it is a subscription service where you pay £15 every month and you will receive 3 perfume samples, 3 ml each which will last up to 30 days using 4 sprays a day. Each scent is randomly picked. And as I am absolutely obsessed with the perfumes and always looking for new fragrances this service give me a chance to try some great fragrances before making design on my next purchase.
This month I have received
W- by Ted Baker
This is very gentle and sophisticated fragrance which I have never tried before, I don’t know why but it never appealed to me , maybe because of bottle design which is nothing wrong with, but also there is nothing unusual which cought my eye . But going back to the fragrance is very fresh with notes of peony , african violet, pink orchid, raspberry, cedar and vanilla which makes it great day time fragrance especially suitable in spring and summer. I was impressed with “W” how lovely and light is but for another hand it doesn’t last all day, I couldn’t smell anything in the evening which is not what I am used to. Personally I would not buy it just for that practical reason, but if someone is not bothered by the fact that fragrance doesn’t last that long , this could be a lovely daily weare 👍
Amor Amor -by Cacharel
This is another fragrance i haven’t been able to use before and this is a classic because I have seen it in the shops for many years, and I little bit disappointed with myself that I have never bought it as this is surprisingly great perfume, It’s a fruity floral that’s both fresh and sexy , it makes me feel little bit different , it makes me stand out from the crowd lol and what’s very important for me it does last all day, definitely worth buying it. Well I know I will 😉
Mon Guerlain- by Guerlain
Oh this is my favourite out of the whole trio, simply because it’s luxurious,very strong (and I love strong), very feminine and sensual. It makes me feel very special . I will be wearing it on the daily basis and on the special occasions as well. I couldn’t be more happier with this perfume and absolutely recommend it to other ladies who love little bit of luxury in life 😊
OOlution is the result of founder Anne-Marie’s mission to create skincare that doesn’t rely on just one or two ingredients, but a host actives. She also wanted it to be a treat to use and to steer clear of synthetic ingredients and palm oil. She certainly succeeded at what she set out to achieve with this luxurious eye cream . The 100% natural formula is hydrating and rich in antioxidants, helping to diminish dark circles and reduce puffiness, whether you use it at the end of the long day or in the morning after 😉
I love discovering new products and one of them is a BC Bonacure Oil Miracle Brazilnut Oil Pulp Treatment by Schwarzkopf Professional. This cute little pot lasts about month using it twice a week, if you have medium length hair like myself , work into mid-lengths and ends of towel dried hair , combing trough it to ensure it’s evenly spreaded, than leave it for 10 minutes and rinse it off thoroughly. So why I like it so much? Because innovative argan powder particles gently removes impurities from hair while macadamia nut intensely nourishes and UV filters help protect from the sun , which makes my hair very smooth,shiny and more manageable. Definitely will recommend this product. I have received this pot in my Glossybox and it is a sample size of 30 ml , which if you want to try it is available on http://www.schwarzkopf-professional.co.uk at the price of £3.95
This little gem was one of the products I have received in my Glossybox March edition. In Transit camera close- up is a hero product for very good reason… why ? Because it’s just what my skin needs when it has lost its equilibrium. This primer balances, plumps and brightens skin leaving it lovely and smooth ready for photo shoot, there are rumours that Victoria Beckham loves it so much lol.I like to use it over my usual moisturiser or face oil for extra hydration boost and I am ready to apply my makeup. I would happily recommend this product it really gives me fresher looking makeup and it lasts all day . The only bad thing is that it cost £28 for 30 ml ,so it is bit expensive, but for another hand you only need small amount of it pea size for whole face .
Worth trying 😉
Recently I have been hearing a lot about beauty box subscriptions, and was wondering if this is any good. Did some research what kind of boxes are available in UK and decided to try Glossy Box UK. It costs £10 a month plus delivery so it’s not bad for what you get believe me . The real fun about it is that you never know what you’ll receive each month all you know that you’ll get 5 beauty products to try . When my box has arrived I must say I was very impressed with packaging. Beautifully presented pink box with black ribbon and 5 products inside.
I have received
oOlution- eye cream 100% 20 ml
Eye and cheek Pallette full size
This Works in transit camera close up 20 ml
Figs & Rouge day cream 20 ml
BC Bonacure Oil Miracle Brazilnut Oil Pulp Treatment 30 ml
I am very excited about trying all of this beautiful products and as soon as possible I’ll be coming back with my feedback. Have you tried any of these products? If yes what are your thoughts ? Looking forward to hearing from you 🌞
