Glowing skin

Unlike last time when I was talking to you about Sun care products and getting healthy tanned skin, today's post is all about having a glowing skin without sun exposure.
Nowadays there are hundreds of different products promising you tanned look, but when it comes to autobronzants the choice is never easy. Noone wants to look like a carrot or wants to leave orange marks on any surface he touches. That's the reason why for years I have never ever even thought about trying such products until this summer. Shortly after I got back from my holiday my skin regained her pale winter tone in just three short weeks. That was the moment when I decided to finally buy an autobronzant and experiment a little bit.

  
So, this is the product that I can't recommend enough ever since - Ideal Soleil Hydra-Bronzing Self-Tanning Milk for face and body by Vichy
It provides a natural-looking radiant and progressive tan, with a streak free finish. The melting texture leaves a velvety non-greasy finish that hydrates your skin for up to 8 hours. Of course, it is tested under dermatological control and is suitable for sensitive skin. Contains no parabens and as every Vichy product it is enriched with Vichy Thermal Spa Water.
If you still are not sure what you think about autobronzants, I have other suggestions for you.


The first one is this Skin So Soft Enhance & Glow Gradual Tan Lotion for Medium Skin by Avon - lightweight, non-greasy lotion formulated with collagen-boosting technology and SPF15 to protect skin and provide 24-hour moisture. With soft-touch formula and velvet flower and olive extracts, which even your skin tone, making it more glowy and shimmery.
The second one is this Skin So Soft Enhance &Glow Shimmer Oil Spray -
mineral-enriched, non-greasy moisturising oil spray to luxuriously soften skin, leaving it with a beautiful, golden shimmer. 

What do you think about these products? Have you tried any of them?

Boho vibes



Summer's almost gone.. and I haven't yet showed you my summer uniform. On every day off from work and on those rarely occasions when I am actually going out I always wear something like the pieces in today's post. This includes my hat, which is so versatile that I wear it so much not only in the summertime, but also as my favourite accessory in the autumn/winter time too. It slowly became my signature going out style and almost everyone I know, knows me for the hat..

  
  

Another thing that I am really excited about is that not only the bohemian style is so trendy in the last couple of years, but also the big come back of the off-the-shoulder tops. I won't lie to you, I already bought a significant amount of them in different shades, colours, materials and cuts.


My favourite model of shorts are those with loose fit and this particular pair not only has the perfect fit for my figure and for my taste, but it also is made from suede material that I love so, so much. I actually bought them in khaki colour too just in case.. :)

  

The last touches to the look are of course some jewellery and my beloved fringe bag, which if you remember well I have in khaki colour too.. We clearly have a suede/fringe addict here!

What do you think of this look? Are there any 70's lovers?

Sun Care


Since we're in the middle of summer and many of you are going on vacations, I decide to share with you my favourite sun care products. As much as I love a nice glowing tan in the summertime, I never forget to bring with me the right products to protect my skin from the UV lights. That's way I usually start with products with higher SPF factor - like this Anthelios SPF 20 body spray shown on the picture above. (Of course, I have a bit darker skin by nature, but if you are very pale, I recommend starting with SPF 50 like this one from La Roche-Posay.) It is suitable for the whole family's sensitive skin, sun intolerances or those that may be exposed to intense sun regularly, also it is easy to apply and water resistant.
When my skin gets a little bit tanned I turn to dry oils with lower SPF factor. My two favourites are Galénic Sun Care Silky Dry Oil Body Spray SPF15 and NUXE Sun Tanning Oil for Face and Body SPF10. But since they provide lower protection, you must apply them more frequently. 


For my face I use a separate product, of course, and since my skin is a bit more oily I have tried a lot of products, but never felt satisfied with the result, until I found the  Avéne Cleanance Solaire SPF 30 mattifying cream, which provides high sun protection for oily acne-prone skin. 


Another important part of getting a healty tanned skin is taking care of it not only during sun exposure but after that too. I use hydrating lotions on a daily basis, but I usually get a bit picky in the summertime. So, on the picture above you could see my top three after sun body lotions - Vichy Ideal Soleil After Sun Balm, Avéne After Sun Repair Creamy Gel and NUXE Sun Refreshing After-Sun Lotion for Face and Body. After sun products sooth and calm the skin, they also help to restore the skin's barrier and prevent moisture loss. 


 And last but not least, I always bring a Thermal Spring Water spray with me on holidays. I use it on the beach, I use it after that or simply wherever I need to cool and freshen myself up a bit. The spring water by Avéne and by La Roche-Posay are my two personal favourites. 

Which are your favourite sun care products? Have you tried any of these and what do you think about them?

Into the Wild



One of the greatest things about my hometown is that it's actually right beside the mountains. It literally takes less than ten minutes and you are far from the city noise deep into the calmness of the nature. It can't ever become boring to me or to my boyfriend since we both love the mountains,and besides, there is something so fun about doing more touristy things in your own town. So, on a free weekend last September (You read it correctly.. last September! I just don't know how I managed to forget about these pictures..) my boyfriend and I grabbed some friends (and some food, of course) and jumped into the car to spend a laid back afternoon in the nature. We chose a place, which is known not only for its historical significance, but also with its breathtaking views of the town and the valley below. The landscapes are so strikingly gorgeous, that you simply can't believe they are real.


It was still pretty warm but in the mountains you should always be dressed well and comfortable. There is no surprise that I opted for a simple cotton plaid shirt since I really love plaid shirts a lot and have always thought that they are the most suitable clothing piece for outdoor activities. I added a pair of jeans and my beloved Converse sneakers and we were good to go.


Of course, our bags were filled with yummy things to grill on the fire later - sausages and ribs for the boys, as well as some lean meat and veggies for the girls. The rest of the evening we spent eating by the fire, sipping tea from our mugs, while listening the crackling fire and watching the night sky above.  


Simply going through these pictures makes me missing the mountain like crazy! I can't wait to go back there some time soon. There is definitely something magical in nature!

The Falsies Push Up Drama


As a loyal Maybelline fan, all of my favourite mascaras are from the brand.. and of course I was impatient to try their new and already so famous The Falsies Push Up Drama. At first I was shocked why this mascara is so famous, because I didn't like the result at all.. It makes my lashes wet and clumpy. Also it tooks way too much time to dry. But after a couple of trials I got better at applying it. I guess since the brush is quite different it takes more time to master it. I won't lie, it would not become a favourite of mine, and maybe I will never buy it again. But in the meantime my sister loved it.. What do you think? Have you tried it yet? Are you loving it or not?

P.S. Read about my favourite mascaras here, here and here.
