My nighttime Routine

Hi everyone!

Today I am going to talk about my nighttime routine and all the products I have been using for the past few months.

Let me give you some context

I am 41 years old. I have sensitive skin and rosacea. I am not the most disciplined nighttime routiner, but I try my best.

TOP FULL

Eyes

I use the advanced night repair eye cream from Estee Lauder. It is a medium type cream/ gel. It gets absorbed easily. It makes the skin around the eyes feel plump and smooth.

estee-lauder-cream

Serum

Exuviance Vespera

Very hydrating. It feels like an oil and you can feel your skin nice and soft the next day. This is good for fine lines.

Clinique moisture surge

I use this when my skin feels very dry. It is a gel like consistency and i have repurchased this one loads of times!!!

Sanctuary reverse sleep  beauty mask

Once a week I wear this mask and go to sleep. The first time I tried it it stung and i was a bit skeptical. I gave it another shot and applied a thinner layer. I am a fan now. I really like it. It gets absorbed quickly and again leaves your skin feeling nice and soft.

Clinique all about the lips

This is good for fine lines and hydrating the lips. I have bought a couple of these as well.

 

Aveeno moisturising cream

If your skin is flaky or cracked, get this!!I ❤ it. It is always overlooked but it is an amazing affordable skin care product.

Autumn/ Fall OOTD (feat. M&S)

thumbnail_IMG_20170908_154458_239

Hi everyone!!

I thought I’d write a different post today and share an outfit of the day (OOTD) autumn/ fall edition. I got a really nice faux leather jacket and a pretty hot pink blouse from Marks and spencers. I ❤ shopping there because you can find sizes!!!

TOP FULL

The jacket is nice and soft. It has loads of zippers and it looks trendy. The top has a very nice neck detail and the back is low cut as well.

thumbnail_IMG_20170906_183932_687

The jacket comes in loads of colours, but I chose tan/ brown because I do not have a brown jacket. Price 39. 50. The blouse is a light textured material. It is great for work or even a casual night out. Price 35 pounds.

Most items are from Wilkos, Primark, TK Maxx and Poundland.

This is the video with the studio tour:

Empties: Hits and Misses

empties

Hi everyone!

I just shared a video where I talk about product empties. I find these videos quite interesting because you can actually give a full review of a product and  say if you will repurchase or not. I buy and use up a lot of products. I often use up products I don’t really like because I think to myself

I spent my dosh, I am gonna use you up

But sometimes there are products I cannot keep using and I just chuck em out!

So, in brief, what did I like?

* this part contains affiliate links

Clinique Moisture Surge

Already repurchased (get it here). It is the best for dry skin. Your skin immediately sucks it up. I love it!

Clinique Aromatics White

Already repurchased  (get the gift set here). I love this product! Everyone asks me what perfume I am wearing. I say it is the baby of Chanel No 5 and Talk Powder. So nice. Long lasting.

perf

Bourjois Real Volume Mascara 

Already Repurchased (get it here). This is my fave mascara. It makes your lashes look long and black! It doesn’t make them look goopy (is that how you spell it?)

Mascara

Burberry Eye Cntour

Used but ended up chucking half way through. It broke like after 3 times I used it 😦

Maybelline Setting Spray

Couldn’t chuck it fast enough!!! If you like polka dots and wanna look like a polka dot faced person, this is for you. Otherwise nope!

Now if you want details as to why these worked or did not work, check out my video 🙂 I babble on about them for a bit!!

Have you tried any of these products? What did you think?

Clinique Chubby Stick Intense Review

This post contains affiliate links

Hi everyone!!!
In Greece, Clinique has a loyalty club. I am a member of that club and gathered points and was sent the Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in Grandest Grape and Roomiest Rose. When I first got them I was like, OK, nice and chucked them in my makeup bag. Today, I will review them because I actually like the line!!

on hearts
The colour
Grandest Grape: It is a semi to full opaque berry red but not in your face red. It is a bit glossy.

Roomiest Rose: It is a watermelon rose (dark rose red).

You can click on the links and check the other colours as well.
Long lasting?
They does not last all day, but they are quite long lasting. It leaves a stain on your lips.
Is it hydrating? Does it feel drying?
Yes, very. It feels like a lip balm. It feels great. It is very easy to apply. Soft.

Cost

About 18 pounds

clinique open
Packaging
A thick pencil. The only thing I do not like about it is that you can not really sharpen the top of it.

Do you recommend it?

Yes!I ❤ them.

2 Book Suggestions for the Summer

Book Reviews
Hi everyone,
Today’s post is about books!I ❤ reading light-hearted books, especially during summer. I will actually talk to you about two of the books I have read so far and recommend them. If you like novels that are funny and about love, I have something for you love!
Both

13 Weddings by Paige Toon

I read this in 3 days. It is about a girl called Bronte who woks for a magazine. She meets someone, falls in love, and so on so on. You see her adventures and giggle from time to time. I like that about books. If a book makes me laugh, I am content. I really liked the ending because it was not predictable. There is a second story line which I did not really get (father- daughter relationship), it did make me want to read more though in order to figure out what was going on.
I recommend this book if you are looking for something easy to read, on the beach during the summer.
You can get the book here.

The Queen of Wishful Thinking by Milly Johnson

I haven’t finished reading this but I thought I’d mention it cause first of all, I really like where the story is set. England and in an antique shop. This one is about two people who love antiques and meet. They are both married and not very happy in their  marriages. It is interesting to see the couple dynamics. Not as light- hearted as the other book, but nothing heavy (so far). Again, a book you can flip through during your holidays. You can get it here.

Other recommendations

If you haven’t read the Rosie Project or the Rosie Effect, you need to. Again stories about finding love but written from a guys perspective. I have one spoiler for you. He makes a questionnaire in order to find his perfect wife. These books are really fun to read and page turners. You can get the Rosie Project here and the Rosie Effect here
