Review of Avène Cleanance Gel Cleanser:

Hello everyone! Today it’s a skincare day review, because we are going to talk about a great and affordable cleanser: Avène Cleanance Gel Cleanser.

Who is it for?

This soapless cleansing gel is perfect for those who have oily or acne prone skin and need an everyday cleanser that gently but effectively helps to purify your skin, while respecting its physiological pH. However, since this extremely gentle cleanser doesn’t contain harsh active ingredients like salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide, it works really well even on normal or dry skin, especially after a humid hot summer day. 

What’s good about it?

I have been using the Avène Cleanance Gel Cleanser almost every day since I have bought it, nearly a month ago now. I especially love using this cleanser at the end of the day, as a second cleanser, after removing all my make up with a specific product like the amazing Body Shop Camomile Waterproof Eye & Lip Makeup Remover (my review here) and the Camomile Cleansing Butter. However, this is also awesome as a first cleanser for your morning skincare routine.

The light consistency of this aquamarine gel becomes soft and soapy once you have massage it on your damp face. Then you can rinse it away with warm water. It’s really easy to use!

Avène Cleanance Gel can cleanse gently and effectively your face, leaving your skin feeling refreshed and balanced, but not dry or tight. It can even help calm sensitive skin!

This hypoallergenic and paraben-free gel is also fragrance-free. Plus, it contains Avène Thermal Spring Water, a great soothing ingredient; Cucurbita Pepo, a vegetal origin extract, which contributes to reduce the excess of sebum, and zinc gluconate, an amazing anti-inflammatory ingredient.

The packaging is also great and easy to use; the small opening on the top of the bottle can assure you that there will be no waste of product (in fact you will only need a small amount of gel to clean your entire face, so a little bit of it goes a long way). 

What’s not so good about it?

Nothing, really. This is a very good and effective cleanser. Plus, the huge bottle of 300 ml. is, beyond doubt, a beauty bargain.

You can buy it in every store near you that sell Avène products or online here.

Final thoughts!

I really love skincare products, especially after my acne treatment that dried out my skin so badly that I needed to change my entirely skincare routine! So I really recommend this cleanser gel, to everyone actually, not only to those who have oily/acne-prone skin. It is a really great everyday cleanser, affordable and very effective.

Summer Favourites: 3 Oh-They-Smell-So-Good Shower Gels:

Hello everyone! 🙂 Today we are going to talk about body care with 3 great summery scented shower gels. 🙂 
 

Who are they for? 

Everyone who wants good, affordable and lightly summery scented shower gels.

What’s good about them?

It’s difficult to find shower gels and body cleansers that are gentle and non-drying but that actually do a proper work; these 3 are my favourites because they are effective, not drying, affordable and perfect for the next summer holidays! 

The Body Shop Piñita Colada Shower Gel:

The new summer body care range from Body Shop is simply delicious! This shower gel has a rich texture that refreshes and revitalizes your skin leaving behind a wonderful tropical scent of coconut and pineapple. Also, it contains cleansing agents that won’t dry your skin, and a few emollient ingredients to help softening it. A perfect summer product!

-You can buy it here.

Klorane Ultra-Rich Riviera Getaway Shower Gel:  

This is another amazing fragranced body wash! It cleanses well without being drying and produces a soft, slightly creamy lather that rinses well without leaving a residue behind. Its lightly but luscious and long lasting fragrance combines lemon and tangerine notes with sweet jasmine and almond scents that can remind you of the Mediterranean Sea and the French Riviera. This product is also soap-free, paraben-free and phenoxyethanol-free. Awesome!

-You can buy it here.

Cien Sparkling Sunrise Shower Mousse:

This is a little different from a standard shower gel, because it has a mousse texture, similar to the ones that you put on your hair for styling.

The fragrance is fresh, frizzy and fruity with notes of rhubarb combined with vanilla scent. Another good, affordable and lightly summery scented shower product. It’s also perfect for everyday use and for combo/oily skin.

(P.S: I bought it at a Lidl shop.)

What’s not so good about it?

Nothing, really! They are all good body cleanser and affordable products. They also last for about 3/4 hours after you have washed them away.

Final thoughts! 

I will use them randomly this summer because I really love these new fresh, fun and tasty smelling body cleansers that I have just discovered!  

So, have you already tried one of these shower products? What’s your favourite? Or have you found any other summer shower gels that you like?:)

Review of the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel:

Hello everyone! 🙂 Today it’s a skincare review day and we are going to talk about the awesome Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel. It’s peachy color is perfect for this autumn season and “halloweeny” week! LOL

Who is it for?

Everyone who wants a smooth, clean and reborn skin every morning! 

What’s good about it?

I love the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel from the bottom of my heart because it’s a pleasure to use it and it will give you the best skin in the morning when you usually are a grumpy cat… maybe because, like me, you are not a morning person (FYI, I hate mornings!).

The pumpkin enzyme helps to deep cleanse your pores and gently dissolves the bonds that bind dead cells into skin’s surface, without irritation for a balanced complexion. Also, the heavenly lightly smell of pumpkin takes you straight to the autumn/halloween mood!

Moreover, this cleanser removes even your makeup, but I would recommend using it as a first cleanser in the morning or second in the evening and let your skin enjoy its great ingredients; the pumpkin enzyme, Omega 6, the Vitamin A, E and C (they do tons of good stuff, including protecting against free radicals and restoring smooth skin texture) and also the Oskia’s MSM (which has anti-inflammatory properties to soothe and calm your skin).

First, I massage the product onto dry skin, using 2-3 pumps for my whole face, for a couple of seconds. When I want to remove it, I simply add a little bit of water to emulsify it (the gel turns into a milky smooth texture), then I rinse it off for good with several splash of warm water.

The Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel is suitable for any skin type.

You can buy it here [UK] , here [UK] or here [US]

What’s not so good about it?

I know, the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel is a little bit pricey (the bottle has only 100ml in it), but it’s worth the hype because this gel is awesome and a little bit of it goes a long way; you only need a small amount, 2-3 pumps max., for your whole face! 🙂 

Final thoughts!

I love Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel because is an amazing everyday cleanser if you’re in for a regular 5 seconds of luxury. Moreover, it has a combination of great ingredients that all help to resurface, rejuvenate and brighten your skin whilst eliminating every dead cell; it’s more than just a cleanser! 😉

What’s inside?

Ingredients:

CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC TRIGLYCERIDE, GLYCERIN, AQUA, CETEARYL OLIVATE, SUCROSE LAURATE, BENZYL ALCOHOL, SORBITAN OLIVATE, SUCROSE PALMITATE, PARFUM (NATURAL), GERANIOL, DIMETHYL SULFONE, CITRONELLOL, DEHYDROACETIC ACID, LACTOBACILLUS/CUCURBITA PEPO FRUIT FERMENT EXTRACT, BORAGO OFFICINALIS SEED OIL, SUCROSE STEARATE, LINALOOL, RETINYL PALMITATE, CI 77491, JOJOBA ESTERS, TOCOPHEROL, ASCORBYL PALMITATE.

Ciao a tutti! 🙂 Oggi è tempo di skincare e parleremo del magnifico Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel e il suo color zucca è perfetto per la stagione autunnale e ovviamente Halloween! LOL 

Per chi è?

Tutti coloro che vogliono una pelle liscia, pulita e rinata ogni mattina!

Cosa c’è di buono?

Amo l’Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel dal profondo del cuore perchè è un piacere usarlo e vi dará una pelle fantastica alla mattina quando la maggior parte di noi diventa Grumpy Cat... perchè forse come me non siete delle persone mattiniere! 😉 

L’enzima della zucca aiuta a pulire in profondità i vostri pori e gentilmente dissolve la pelle morta rimasta sul viso, senza irritare o inaridire. Il leggero profumo di zucca vi porterà sicuramente nel mood verso il weekend di Halloween! 

Questo prodotto rimuove anche il makeup, ma suggerisco di utilizzarlo come primo cleanser al mattino o come secondo alla sera dopo esservi struccate per bene così da poter godere degli ingredienti naturali contenuti all’interno come l’enzima della zucca, l’Omega 6, le vitamine A, E e C (queste ultime proteggono dai radicali liberi e ristorano la vostra pelle) e infine l’Oskia MSM (che contiene proprietà anti-infiammatorie per calmare e lenire).

Per prima cosa io massaggio il prodotto su pelle asciutta, utilizzando 2-3 pumps per tutto il viso, per un paio di secondi. Quando devo rimuoverla, aggiungo un pó di acqua per emulsionare la texture (trasformando il gel in una consistenza più lattiginosa), alla fine lo sciacquo per bene con tanta acqua tiepida.

L’Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel è adatto a tutti i tipi di pelle.

Lo potete trovare qui

Cosa non mi convince?

Lo so, l’Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel è un pochino costoso (la bottiglia ha soltanto 100ml), ma ne vale veramente la pena perchè questo gel è magnifico e ne si usa poco alla volta, per cui vi durerà almeno 3/4 mesi!

Considerazioni finali!

Adoro questo prodotto perchè è un fantastico cleanser giornaliero se volete sentire sulla pelle 5 minuti di lussuria. Poi ha una combinazione di ingredienti davvero molto buoni, che vi aiuteranno a ringiovanire e far risplendere la vostra pelle eliminando anche le cellule morte; è molto più di un cleanser fidatevi! 😉 

P.S. L’INCI lo trovate poco prima delle immagini del prodotto, come sempre! 🙂

Review of the Precision Gel Liner in Infinity by Illamasqua and the Sephora Eyeliner Brush nr° 23 :

Hello everyone! 🙂 Today is MONDAYagain… how depressing! So, let’s keep calm and pretend it’s not Monday… AGAIN! Let’s talk about magic, magic makeup! 😉I’m going to talk about the Precision Gel Liner in Infinity by Illamasqua and the Sephora Eyeliner Brush nr° 23! 🙂

Little premise as always: I have oily eyelids so the need to use a good primer in that area has always been a must for me, otherwise my makeup will melt away during the day.

Who are them for?

I would recommend this eyeliner to anyone who wants a product that, once dry, stays in place for all day long and it is waterproof, too. The brush is also perfect for anyone who wants a tool that makes applying gel or cream eyeliner so much easier!

What’s good about them?

I have tried almost every gel liner known “on the planet Earth” and now I have found the one that’s perfect for me! 🙂

The color of the Precision Gel Liner in Infinity by Illamasqua is a beautiful deep black. Moreover, it recreates the fluidity of a liquid liner in the easy way of a gel product.

In fact, this gel is easy to work with and it also creates a smooth and beautiful line from the first application.

It’s a water-resistant formula so you can go wherever you want with this; in fact, it stays put all day and doesn’t smudge off either.

Also, the product remains fresh in the pot even after months of use!

The texture is pretty good and it’s amazing to use with a good fine liner brush.

Speaking of which, I found a brush at Sephora for the Precision Gel Liner that creates the perfect combo! The tip of the Sephora Eyeliner Brush nr° 23 is elbow-shaped, this means that you can tuck the ferrule of the brush under your lashes and allow the tip to trace the cleanest line you ever made. It will allow you to put on your eyeliner in a sec and it’s also easy to clean. I really adore it and I can guarantee that you will fall in love with the brush nr° 23, too! 

P.S: The ferrule is the brass part between the handle and the bristles.

 You can buy the Precision Gel Liner in Infinity by Illamasqua on their official website .

You will find the Eyeliner Brush nr° 23 in your Sephora store, but if you want to take a look or buy it online, here it is

What’s not so good about them?

Nothing really, the Gel Liner by Illamasqua and the Sephora Brush are two wonderful products! I just wish the eyeliner came in more colors!

Final thoughts!
I must say that the Precision Gel Liner in Infinity by Illamasqua is by far the best gel liner I have come across. Also you get a lot of product in the pot, so it’s worth the price tag! I don’t think I would ever go back to the others now that I found this little black magic gel! Moreover, like I said before, it creates an amazing combo with the Sephora Eyeliner Brush nr° 23.

What’s in the Precision Gel Liner in Infinity by Illamasqua?

Ingredients:

ISODODECANE, CYCLOPENTASILOXANE, POLYETHYLENE, TRIMETHYLSILOXYSILICATE, SORBITAN SESQUIOLEATE, TRIMETHYLSILOXYPHENYL DIMETHICONE, DISTEARDIMONIUM HECTORITE, LECITHIN, HYDROGENATED POLYISOBUTENE, POLYSORBATE 20, BARIUM SULFATE, PHENOXYETHANOL [+/- MAY CONTAIN / PEUT CONTENIR: IRON OXIDES (CI 77499), BLACK 2 (CI 77266)].

Ciao a tutti! 🙂 Oggi è LUNEDI’… di nuovo… che depressione! Maaaa… restiamo calmi e facciamo finta che non sia lunedì… DI NUOVO! Parliamo di magia… per la precisione di makeup magico! ;)Oggi vi parlerò del Precision Gel Liner in Infinity by Illamasqua e del Sephora Eyeliner Brush nr° 23! 🙂

Piccola premessa come sempre: ho le palpebre oleose, quindi ho sempre bisogno di usare un’ottima base, altrimenti il makeup mi si scioglierà tutto durante il corso della giornata.

Per chi sono?

Consiglio questo eyeliner a chi vuole un prodotto che, una volta asciutto, rimane perfettamente a posto per tutto il giorno ed è anche waterproof. Il pennello è ottimo per chi vuole uno strumento che renda molto più facile e veloce l’applicazione dell’eyeliner in gel o in crema!

Cosa hanno di buono?

Ho provato quasi tutti i tipi di eyeliner in gel che esistono sulla faccia della Terra, ma solo ora ho trovato quello perfetto per me! 🙂
Il colore del Precision Gel Liner in Infinity by Illamasqua è un bellissimo nero intenso.Ricrea inoltre la fluidità di un eyeliner liquido nella forma più facile da usare di un gel.

Infatti questo gel è facile da modellare e permette di creare una linea perfetta e fluida già dalla prima applicazione.

La formula è water-resistant così può essere usato in tutte le situazioni e con tutti i climi; rimane perfetto tutto il giorno e non si sbava facilmente.

Il prodotto si mantiene ottimamente nel vasetto anche dopo svariati mesi dalla prima apertura.La texture è fantastica ed è ottima per essere usata insieme con un buon pennello per eyeliner dalla punta fine.

A proposito, ho trovato un pennello per eyeliner di Sephora che crea una combinazione perfetta con il Precision Gel Liner! L’estremità del Sephora Eyeliner Brush nr° 23 ha una forma a gomito, ciò consente di posizionare il puntale del pennello direttamente sotto le ciglia permettendo di tracciare una linea dritta e pulita. Riuscirete così a mettervi l’eyeliner in pochi secondi, rispetto ai minuti che perdevate prima! E’ anche molto facile da pulire!Io lo adoro e posso garantirvi che anche voi lo amerete dopo averlo provato la prima volta!

P.S: Per puntale in questo caso si intende la parte di ottone del pennello che si trova tra il manico di legno e le setole.

Potete trovare il Precision Gel Liner in Infinity by Illamasqua sul loro sito ufficiale .

Potete trovare l’ Eyeliner Brush nr° 23 nei negozi Sephora, ma se volete dargli un’occhiata o comprarlo online, ecco qui il link .

Cosa non mi piace?

Niente in realtà, il Gel Liner by Illamasqua e il pennello di Sephora sono due prodotti fantastici! Vorrei solo che ci fossero più colori tra i quali scegliere per l’eyeliner.

Considerazioni finali!

Devo dire che il Precision Gel Liner in Infinity by Illamasqua è assolutamente il miglior eyeliner gel che mi sia mai capitato di provare! Il vasetto contiene parecchio prodotto, quindi vale la spesa. Adesso che ho provato questo gel magico piccolo e nero 😉 non credo che userò mai più eyeliner di altre marche! Inoltre, come ho detto prima, è ancora più spettacolare se usato insieme al Sephora Eyeliner Brush nr° 23.

Cosa c’è nel Precision Gel Liner in Infinity by Illamasqua?

Ingredienti:

ISODODECANE, CYCLOPENTASILOXANE, POLYETHYLENE, TRIMETHYLSILOXYSILICATE, SORBITAN SESQUIOLEATE, TRIMETHYLSILOXYPHENYL DIMETHICONE, DISTEARDIMONIUM HECTORITE, LECITHIN, HYDROGENATED POLYISOBUTENE, POLYSORBATE 20, BARIUM SULFATE, PHENOXYETHANOL [+/- MAY CONTAIN / PEUT CONTENIR: IRON OXIDES (CI 77499), BLACK 2 (CI 77266)].
