New from Dove


Hello ladies,

Today I decided to review a new body oil from Dove (Dove DermaSpa goodness Silky body oil). I saw it the other day in a beauty store (Drogas) and instantly decided to buy it. Probably the main reason was that the oil inside the bottle has a beautiful golden pearly colour, so I thought in my head that it will probably make my skin look divine and I was right! I have to say that my skin (especially my legs) is very dry during winter time and this body oil really saved me. It leaves my skin very soft and smooth. Dove also promises that this oil will make your skin look even and luminous. The best part is that it really does! It kind of reminds me of a bronzing oil from the body shop, but Dove body oil doesn't have that bronzing shimmer in it, so it looks just as your natural skin, but more beautiful and more healthy. It also has a very nice scent, it smells like peaches to me and I really like it. This scent is quite strong and very "in your face", but I don't mind it, since it does a good job leaving my skin nourished. I think it's definitely worth buying and trying. Also they have another body oil, which I also saw just yesterday. I really want to try that one too, cause it suppose to improve elasticity and firmness of your skin. So girls, definitely check those out!

Christmas gift guide
Hey guys!

Long time no see, for the last half year I have just been crazyy busy, so my blog was left out and I'm sorry for those people, who followed my blog. I want to start writing blog posts again, I really want to commit myself just for that. As a first blog post after this huge break I decided to do a holiday gift guide for her, but actually there are gifts that I would really like to get myself too=). Anyway, I hope this post will be helpful, especially for gentlemans out there, who just want to surprise their ladies with some nice presents this year. I know this would probably be helpful for my boyfriend too, since he really don't know what to get for me=)). I also want to inform you, that I will do a gift guide for him too. So ladies, if you still don't know what to get for your man, stick around my blog, maybe you will get some nice ideas from my recommendations.

L’occitane en provence - Provence Beauty

 photo DSC_01742_zps67exzpf8.jpg
So this week I stopped by the L’occitane shop and they have some amazing deals right now. I decided to spoil myself a little bit and picked up some nice items that I don’t really needed that much, but it’s really nice to have a nice smelling perfume and a good hand crème, well in this case, three mini hand cremes.

| L’occitane en provence Arlésienne Eau de Toilette 8 ml |

What it says in the description: "Arlésienne, the feminine fusion of three flowers. Feminine and gracious, she embodies the beauty of Provence. Free and mysterious, she is a unique alchemy of colors and fabrics. Elusive and attractive, she leaves in her wake a unique trail that lingers wherever she goes. L’Occitane reveals her in a subtle bouquet of three flowers: the rose for her grace, the sweet violet for her mystery and the saffron for her temperament. Contains extracts of rose from Grasse, sweet violet and saffron from Provence."

I love love the smell in this little cute bottle. It really smells like flowers, but in a good way. It’s not too overpowering and that’s the reason why I decided to bought it, because I am not a girl, who likes florally scents. I like more fruity perfumes. I also wanted a scent that would be perfect for fall and you probably think that florally scents are more suitable for spring and summer, but actually this scent is quite warm, it makes you feel cozy, so I think it's perfect for all seasons. I use it on my wrists and on my neck. The lasting power is also good, I can feel it almost everyday, especially when I move my arms. And the bottle looks heavenly with this pattern of little flowers. You can find Arlésienne here.

| Set of three hand creams 3 x 10ml |

All of these hand creams contains shea butter (20 %). These hand creams helps to protect, nourish and soften the hands. The pink one smells like roses, the yellow one – like vanilla, and the silver blue one – is a traditional, their best selling and award winning hand cream which doesn’t have a scent, but works really amazing. I tried once the blue one and I remember loving it, so I am sure that I will love other two too. And they come with a little cute container, where you can keep all three of them.

I also got two testers of two different products. The firs tone is – Hydra Vital face cream, which suppose to hydrate your skin. The other one - Ultra Matte fluid for face, which really works, it makes your skin matte but soft at the same time, really liked this one, but actually you can never go wrong by choosing L'occitane products. They all are amazing and high quality products. That's why I love this particular brand. It also makes me feel like a French girl.

Cozy fall essentials

So sadly, summer is over here in Lithuania and within the first days of fall it started to get colder and colder, and also it’s raining a lot. On those rainy days I just don’t want to do anything, just stay in my warm bed, so I decided to do a little list of things that helps me to feel cozy while I am laying in bed or when I’m getting ready for a bedtime. It’s actually like a little bedtime routine for me that help me to relax and unwind after a long day at work.
 photo DSC_01151_zps5dlof8ux.jpg  photo DSC_00961_zps1oe0igwm.jpg  photo DSC_00871_zps36wckrl3.jpg
Before getting in bed I like to make sure that my body is moisturised, for that purpose I like to use The body shop chocomania body butter, which as I know is discontinued, sadly, cause it smells so amazing! The smell of chocolate is one of my favourite, especially during fall time.
Also, I like to use Essence 24h hand protection balm on my hands, which also smells yummy – like vanilla and cinnamon. It’s also very very moisturising, I know that you suppose to use it on your hands, but sometimes I even use it on my feet’s, and it really softens them.

Of course I have to make some Caramel Latte for myself and sometimes I like to light a scented candle that sits on my bedside table. The one you see right one is from H&M and it’s called Crisp Cotton, it a very strong, but yet clean and fresh scent that reminds me of fresh laundries.

I also love to listen to the music while I’m trying to fall asleep, it really helps me to relax. My favourite song right now is by the Neighbourhood - Sweater Weather.

I am always cold during those colder seasons, so I have to make sure that I have a blanket on my bed. And I like to wear fuzzy socks while I am sleeping.

Also the bedding is very important thing for me. It creates that coziness in my room. The one you see right one is from ikea, but I am in love with sateen beddings. It looks very luxurious. You can find some amazing sateen beddings right here. I have been eyeing them a lot. I am also very amazed by this particular brand, cause they partnered with Nothing But Nets, a global, grassroots campaign created by the United Nations Foundation to prevent malaria, a leading killer of children in sub-Saharan Africa. So For every Venice set sold, this brand called Parachute has committed to sending one life-saving bed net for children in Africa. Isn’t that amazing? I mean I really appreciate that idea that this brand has.

So that's it for today girls.
Thank you for reading and goodnight!=)

Summertime favorites


Hi lovelies!

I know that it’s still summertime, but sadly it’s coming to an end.  This summer I discovered a few amazing products, that may be well known for you or to other beauty bloggers, but I’m glad that I finally tried them myself. So here is my blog post, which includes my summertime favorites, my discoveries and my genuine opinion. Hope you’ll like it!

SHOP MY FAVORITES


 photo DSC_07042_zpstdwv3sr5.jpg  photo DSC_07661_zpsuf6a4clz.jpg
| The Body Shop Honey Bronze shimmering dry oil in 01 Honey Kissed |
Love this product! This is one of the best discoveries ever. It gives a nice glowy and shimmery finish, skin looks bronzed, healthy and also the oil softens your skin. It looks even better over a summer tan! I love to use it whenever I wear summer dresses, also I have to warn you that the colour can transfer on your clothes, so don’t put this product on places where your clothes contact with your skin. I mostly use this on my legs.

| Essence sun club 2 in 1 bronzing powder |
This product contains a matte bronzer and a highlighter, which are merged together. You can use either the bronzer or highlighter individually or you can mix and use both sides together. It’s a budget friendly brand and the quality of this bronzer is really nice.

| Evian Facial Spray |
It’s perfect for summer and great to take to the beach with you. It refreshes your face on a hot summer day. Also you can use it daily, doesn’t matter what the weather is, because it helps to hydrate your skin, fix your make-up, freshen and purify. This mineral water is from the Alps and it can use people with all skin types.

| Australian Gold lip balm with SPF 30 |
Lip saviour this summer. After two times I burned my lips, I found this baby and bought it, so that burns never happened again. Somehow, I found it difficult to find a good lip balm with SPF in it, it is just me?

| Macadamia Hair Healing Oil Spray |
My hair loved this product and I only used it on my hair ends, cause they tend to get dry and then splits. It actually works like it is promised at the back of this bottle: it infuses your hair with moisture, so your hair looks healthy, feels soft, is protected and shine.  You can use it on wet/damp or dry hair.

| The Body Shop Virgin Mojito body sorbet |
Another product, which is made for the summer. I love the smell of it and the cooling effect that gives to my skin. You can leave it in the fridge if you want a more intense cooling effect. It has honey, sesame oil and aloe Vera in it. The only downside is the packaging, because it is made from plastic and doesn't close properly.

| The foot factory foot lotion |
Another product, which has a cooling effect, but it’s made for your feet’s. It’s a minty cooling, soothing and hydrating foot lotion. It especially helps your feet to feel better after a long walk.

| Sally Hansen Xtreme wear nail polishes in 481 Breezy Blue and 270 Lacey Lilac |
These were my go to colours for the summer, especially the lilac one. Also Lacey Lilac (needs two coats) is more opaque than Breezy Blue (needs three coats). That’s the only downside, but I love the colours so much, that It even doesn’t matter for me, I am still using it.

An Ode To Dry Shampoo

Hello girls! In today’s post I would like to review dry shampoos, which I have tried and I think I found the best dry shampoo ever! So I would like to share it with you girls! I hope it helps.

 photo DSC_06291_zpsg6y5vtw9.jpg
First of all, I think I have to mention that I use dry shampoo on a regular basis, like every other day, because I don’t like to wash my hair every day. It’s also not very good for your hair, because if you wash your hair everyday it can become even more oilier and we don’t want that, so in order to defeat the oiliness and greasiness in my hair I use dry shampoo.

A quick tip: if your dry shampoo doesn't give you enough volume, use it before bedtime and sleep with it. In the morning your hair will be fresh and not flat at all.

Let’s have a look at the shampoos that I already used up…
 photo DSC_06351_zps2jpgbytw.jpg
The first one and the best is by batiste. It is a dry shampoo which not only reduce oiliness, but also gives extra volume to your hair.  Like A LOT of volume! You can definitely feel that something is in your hair after you used it, but I love the volume that it gives. Your hair also smells nice and feels fresh.

The second favourite shampoo is not from popular brand, but it gives me similar effect like the one from batiste. The brand is called Herbina and it’s from Helsinki (Finland). Like I said it also meant to remove the oiliness from your hair and to give volume.
 photo DSC_06471_zpslafl0bm9.jpg
And the third one is also from batiste. This one smells really nice, but it only removes oiliness and after that my hair still remains flat and lifeless. So this one is my least favourite.
