Summer Favourites: A Great Eye Cream For Dark Circles – Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Circle Perfector SPF 30:

 Hello everyone! 🙂 Today is a skincare day review, so we are going to talk about a great eye cream to bright under-eye dark circles: Clearly Corrective Dark Circle Perfector Broad Spectrum SPF 30. 

Who is it for?

Everyone who wants an effective, but lightweight morning cream to bright and correct under-eye darkness. Also, everyone who wants a good dedicated product to protect the delicate eye area from UV damage. 

What’s good about it? 

Usually, I’m not a fan of specific eye products, I prefer to use my foundation or BB cream around my eyes as well. But I have just tried the Clearly Corrective Dark Circle Perfector Broad Spectrum SPF 30, and I am really pleased with it so far.

Its lovely, lightweight and fragrance-free formula can instantly bright my under-eye area, and sometimes (not always, tough) I don’t even need to put my favorite concealer above it. Although, especially if you have very dark circles, you will always have to apply a good concealer above it.

Another amazing quality of this product, and the one I personally love the most, is that this eye cream contains a broad spectrum sun protection (SPF30), provided by pure titanium dioxide. This mineral ingredient can protect the delicate eye area from UV damage, and also it can double as a cosmetic pigment to help hide and light the appearance of dark circles, even if temporarily.

According to Kiehl’s, this eye cream contains a good amount of vitamin C, which is an amazing ingredient that can help to improve and correct dark circles caused by sun damage. Moreover, it’s formula is also packed with Caffeine and Licorice Root Extracts; both are excellent ingredients to improve skin discoloration, puffiness and aging damages.

The consistency of this eye cream is not greasy, and its silky texture sets, a couple of seconds after you have applied it, to a powdery matte finish that has just a touch of luminosity. It also sits very well beneath makeup, but I would recommend to apply only a small drop of product, otherwise, if you will put too much on, it would only make your dark circles worse. So, be careful and apply only a small amount of product.

Clearly Corrective Dark Circle Perfector Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is paraben-free, fragrance-free and ophthalmologist tested, so it is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive.

What’s not so good about it?

To be honest, this product is a little too dry, at least for me. So, if the skin around your eyes is dry, you will absolutely need to apply your favorite eye cream or moisturizer underneath it. But this is not a deal breaker, because, even with its minimal moisturizing properties, Clearly Corrective Dark Circle Perfector Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is really a great product to try.

Also, it is pricey, but you will only need a small amount and the product is really worth of your money.

Final thoughts! 

It’s hard to find a good eye cream with sunscreen that doesn’t irritate your eyes, improves the appearance of your under-eye area, and contains beneficial ingredients to improve and protect your delicate eye area from UV and aging damages. So, for this 3 very good reasons, I would really recommend Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Circle Perfector Broad Spectrum SPF 30. Moreover, it is a must have product to use the morning after a wild summer late night, or also when you are out and about on vacation, or relaxing at the beach or hiking in the mountains… overall every situation that involves staying outside under the hot summer sun.

End of Summer Favorites: Back To School (or Back To Work) Stationery:

 Hello everyone! 🙂

Today we are going to talk about back to school (or back to work) stationery.

As you probably already know, I love of all things stationery, so I thought now is the right time to share my new findings with you, just before the start of the school year. 😉

The best way to go back to school, or to work with a good mood (and to beat the “September blues“), is to treat yourself to a new shiny case for your pens and pencils.

I really love the pattern of this one below; gold palm leaves and a mint background. It’s so cool, and it reminds me of the Summer holidays; also it is great even as a makeup bag, or a small travel bag.

Then, if you need some colored markers that, thanks to the rubber on the tip of the lid, can erase your mistakes, these are amazing and available in so many colors!

If you feel the need to get a little more organized, you can’t forget a good diary. I bought this cute and travel friendly Molang diary with no dates so I can start it when I want.

If you want a bigger one, I would recommend this beautiful A5 diary, dated from September 2016 to September 2017, like the academic year.

This lovely notebook is perfect to write down your homework, your notes, your next great bestseller novel, or even the catching phrases of your next Summer music hit! 😉

Who doesn’t love rainbow pens and highlighters? So, as I know that a lot of you share my obsession, I would like to show you these nice pens. They are really cute and they also have a great gel-ink that provides smooth writing and vivid lines.

Summer Favorites: 3 Great Books:

Hello everyone!
Something different today; we are going to talk about my 3 favorite books for this Summer:
– I’ve just finished Annihilation by Jeff Vandermeer, which was brilliant! To be more specific, the story is captivating, unique and unsettling. Also, it is very well written.

This is the first book of a trilogy called the Southern Reach Trilogy (the other 2 are Authority and Acceptance). It’s pretty weird and sometimes you don’t understand what is going on, but chapter after chapter you’ll get all the pieces to answer some of your questions.

However, there are more than enough unanswered questions to make you want to read the next book in the series. 

Sinopsis:

Area X has been cut off from the rest of the continent for decades. Nature has reclaimed the last vestiges of human civilization. The first expedition returned with reports of a pristine, Edenic landscape; all the members of the second expedition committed suicide; the third expedition died in a hail of gunfire as its members turned on one another; the members of the eleventh expedition returned as shadows of their former selves, and within months of their return, all had died of aggressive cancer.

This is the twelfth expedition.

Their group is made up of four women: an anthropologist; a surveyor; a psychologist, the de facto leader; and our narrator, a biologist. Their mission is to map the terrain and collect specimens; to record all their observations, scientific and otherwise, of their surroundings and of one another; and, above all, to avoid being contaminated by Area X itself.

They arrive expecting the unexpected, and Area X delivers—they discover a massive topographic anomaly and life forms that surpass understanding—but it’s the surprises that came across the border with them, and the secrets the expedition members are keeping from one another, that change everything.

– The second book is Please Kill Me by Legs McNeils and Gillian McCain, and it’s not a novel. It is a collection of interviews and stories about the rise and fall of the American Rock/Punk-Rock movement through the ’60 and ’70. 

P.S: At the end of the book you will find a lot of pictures of Iggy Pop, Dee Dee Ramones, Patty Smith and more!

Sinopsis:

“Please Kill Me” is the first oral history of the most nihilist of all pop movements. Iggy Pop, Danny Fields, Dee Dee and Joey Ramone, Malcom McLaren, Jim Carroll, and scores of other famous and infamous punk figures lend their voices to this definitive account of that outrageous, explosive era. From its origins in the twilight years of Andy Warhol’s New York reign to its last gasps as eighties corporate rock, the phenomenon known as punk is scrutinized, eulogized, and idealized by the people who were there and who made it happen.

– The last book it’s a little bit different because it’s not a “reading” book but a coloring one: An Inky Treasure Hunt and Coloring Book: Secret Garden by Johanna Basford! If you are on holiday and you need some extra relaxing time, go grab your Staedtler pencils and have fun!

Sorry no sinopsis this time, only colorful pencils everywhere. 😉

Maybe a little intro:

This beautiful and interactive coloring book features delicate and highly detailed pen-and-ink illustrations—all waiting to be brought to life with color. As added entertainment, tiny garden creatures are hidden on the pages, waiting to be found, and a key and index are included in the back. The book’s cover and jacket are also colorable.
