Trialling... Klorane hair care products

I've gone from rarely talking about hair products on my blog to having new ones every month :) I'm guessing my hair might be in a disastrous state so people keep trying to rescue it giving me a chance to try their fabulous products, haha!
Jokes aside, I've been testing for the last few weeks some products from Klorane and today I want to talk to you about them.

Faking that sun-kissed look, my favourite bronzers for Summer

I can't believe I didn't use bronzers up until 3, 4 years ago, basically when I discovered beauty blogs, yet now I can't do my makeup without reaching for one.
They transform my makeup, from looking flat and pasty to that lovely sun-kissed look, within seconds. I rarely contour my face but I always bronze it up when I do my makeup. A bit of bronzer adds some dimension to the face, healthy looking glow and some colour.
I have many bronzers in my stash, some of them I like to use in Winter, some of them are great all year round and some are perfect for Summer to help me create that bronzed, glow-y complexion like I would just come back from exotic holidays :)
And today I want to share with you my current favourites.

My way to unwind after a busy/stressful day

Taking the time to unwind and relax after a busy or stressful day is very important and, in my books, essential. I make sure I have some time to myself most evenings when there's no more work and the kids are asleep so I can really zone out and recharge my batteries for the next day. I feel really sorry for people who can't stop working till the moment they just fall asleep from exhaustion. Our mental health is as important as anything else so taking even half an hour in the evening to completely relax should be one of our priorities.
Everyone is different though and everyone relax in their own way but for me is all about peaceful moments, awaking my senses with beautiful scents and giving my body a bit of a pamper.

Filorga NCTF-Essence, review

Asian skincare has been influencing the western market for the last several years and many brands have brought out products inspired by Asian routines. Hence we started seeing essences appearing in many brands' ranges.
Essence is usually a very lightweight lotion which is to be applied after cleansing the skin and before serum and/or moisturiser. Essence adds a layer of hydration to the skin and makes it ready for the next steps helping other products work more effectively.  
Last month I was kindly sent the Filorga NCTF-Essence* (£50 for 150ml) which I've been using twice daily for over 3 weeks and today I want to share with you my thoughts on it.

Trialling... some Eyeko products

Eyeko is a brand that has been around for some time and I've seen people talk about some of their products but, apart from their eye liner, I had not tried anything. So when their PR got in touch with me asking if I'd love to try some of their products I agreed without hesitation.
I've been trialling all these products for the past several weeks and I'm ready to share my thoughts on them.

5 facial cleansers I will definitely repurchase

As much as I love playing with and applying makeup I think cleansing off my face in the evening is my favourite part of my beauty routines. Long gone are days when I just used a foaming facial wash without paying much attention to the cleansing process, for years it's been almost a ritual of double cleanse every evening. And today I want to share with 5 fabulous facial cleansers which not only are great quality, work well for my skin but also are very reasonably priced.
I have tried some more expensive cleansers which I loved but I do prefer to invest my money in facial serum or oil, maybe even face mask but not as much in my cleanser which doesn't have a lot of time to work its magic on the skin before is washed off. Having said that I still want amazing products but I will much more likely repurchase cleansers with budget friendly price tag and these 5 are just that!

Skintifique - skincare for the most sensitive skin

Today I'm really excited to tell you, guys, about this new skincare brand I've discovered only a few weeks ago. Skintifique, born in Paris and Boston, develops and distributes extremely pure and efficient dermatological skin care products for people whose skin is sensitive, allergic or suffer from dermatological conditions such as eczema, psoriasis. Their products are eco-friendly, vegan, hypoallergenic and animal cruelty free.
My skin is not overly sensitive but my older son has eczema so when I saw that many of their products are suitable even for babies I wanted to try them, on myself and my boys.
I was kindly sent some products and after testing them out for a while I want to share my thoughts on them.
