Hello my beauty lovers,

How important is it for you to look out for more natural products? I am a supporter of sustainability and its positive impacts, therefore I’m always on the look for natural products and sometimes invest a bit more in sustainable ones for my own health, but also for the Planet’s landfill. Sometimes, huge brands launch products that are indeed more natural, but they claim to be bio or sustainable with no certification on the packaging. I had my eye on the newly launched Garnier BIO range as it’s Cosmos certified, but is it really natural? Let’s find out together!

The ingredient list? It looks really promising! Each of the products in the BIO range have one main ingredient (often a specific plant such as Lavander, Thyme, Argan) in the formula. The main ingredients come from particular counties in the world according to where the plant has great conditions to grow. Isn’t that reassuring? Designed for every skin type, the products smell so natural that you’ll take your bathroom for a spa! I find that so therapeutic as smell can trigger certain emotions and feelings.

Your Cleaning BIO Routine

Garnier have launched two organic products for your cleaning routine.The Garnier BIO Purifying Gel Wash is enriched with organic lemongrass, grown in Sri Lanka. It’s mainly targeted to normal and combination skin because the lemongrass will action any imperfections and unclog your pores. It’s super refreshing to apply, it’s just that kick (before coffee) that I need in the morning. If you’re on the hunt for a fresh & natural cleanser, than definitely this is for you. It’s so important to value your skin and ensure you’re on the right track when it comes to ingredients.

Once you’ve washed your face, don’t forget about your toner. A smart beauty brand knows and understand our needs, so Garnier has also included a Thyme infused toner to balance out our sebum levels. This Garnier BIO Perfecting Toner brings together everything that I need in one: a toner that purifies and doesn’t leave out dry skin. Trust me when I say that even my combination skin gets dry from unsuitable toners, so this product is a total game changer for me. It’s definitely one to look out for when replacing your toner.

Glowing Facial Oil

Hello, Lavander, goodbye unnourished skin! This Glowing BIO Facial Oil is amazing and probably my favourite product from the range, it just leaves my face so smooth. I use it to take off my make-up as a fist step of my beauty routine or just as a moisturising mask. It’s so similar to other big brands out there and ultimately does the exact same thing. Win, win!

Daily Moisturisers

The Garnier Moisturisers in the range are individually designed for each skin type – the Garnier Rich Argan BIO Nourishing Moisturiser for dry skin and the Garnier Lemongrass BIO Moisturiser for oily skin. They get absorbed into your skin so fast – it’s really helpful if you apply make-up on top of it. I just don’t like it when I have tick cream on my face. They can can work beautifully alongside your current routine for that extra glow! They’re both Cosmos Organic certified and really easy to carry around on holiday or even on your commute.

Anti Wrinkle Cream

What I love about it? The smell of Lavender and feeling of this Garnier BIO Anti Wrinkle Day Cream! This product has quickly became part of my beauty routine. It’s ticker than the daily moisturiser, so I mainly apply it on my forehead and any smile lines around my moth. It’s perfect for night time because Lavender can really relax you and put you to sleep. Get ready to wake up energised!

Overall, I would say that this range is definitely one to incorporate in your routine because it’s highly focused on one particular ingredient and gives you that natural feeling of taking high care of your skin. Oily, normal or dry skin this range has something for everyone! Make sure you shop it on Notino because they have amazing deals for different products, including skincare, makeup and lifestyle products. Check them out, I’m sure you’ll love them as much as I do 🙂

I call my pamper routine my ritual. I’m able to relax and take 20 minutes of my day for myself and my body. Here are the few things I do to enter my relaxing space.

 Light up my candle

Before anything, l’ll light up a candle that smells fresh or oriental. I love the Fresh Linen one by Yankee Candle for this.

 Cleanse my face

I start off by using a scrub on my face – I make my own scrub with polenta or sugar and the cleansing gel by Ivampur.

Mask time

I’m loving these Korean masks right now by The Korean brand KORIKA. The brand brings together cutting edge Asian technology with effective active ingredients, making them a specialist in this area of cosmetics. My favourite are the SciBeauty and StarBeauty collections. The masks have three a thick sheet and I absolutely love them because my skins feels super hydrated after use. They feel special on my face and the time for beauty routine becomes even more important, as these are not the usual masks we get in drugstores. That’s why, I partnered with Notino to offer you 5 masks from my favourite collections.

Glamorous, sexy and bold, red lips are a statement. But how to wear red lipstick that it doesn’t make your overall appearance too heavy or even tacky?

I stand for a red lip and trust me I have tried a lot of the high street brands, from Rimmel London to Revlon and none of them looked as glamorous as a luxury lipstick.

So, first step you guessed it: invest in a high end lipstick. I opted for the Allure Velvet Chanel Lipstick in shade 57. The way the lipstick shapes the lips and the perfection with which the formula stays on for a long time is what makes the difference for me. Why invest in 5 different lipsticks that will crease all the time and cost the same money in the end?      

        Creating a Classy Cat Eye

Getting to the eye make-up now that we have picked the right lipstick. I don’t recommend a smokey eye when wearing a red lip; not even a natural eyeshadow. Instead, create a classy cat eye in intense black. If the cat eye is not really your thing, add some subtle falsies to complement the lips.

      The best hairstyles to wear with red lips

Just to set the context when I talk about hairstyle. I’m not the best at doing hair, the best things I can do are just basic: straight, curly with a wand and curly overnight with hair grips. Luckily, in this video my hair was naturally curled after washing as I was spending everyday at the sea side. When you’re wearing red lips any of these simple hairstyles work wonders; don’t need to braid it or put it up in a ponytail. You can even leave it natural, it will add that sexy hint to your look.

             What to wear with red lips?

Your outfit really much depends on the context, so I am not going to recommend any outfits, but instead I will recommend a colour palette that perfectly complements that red. These are my personal favourites, but of course there are many others that you can wear. It’s important that you feel comfortable with your choice and ready to slay the day.

Would you like a tutorial for a classy cat eye, like shown here?  I have a super easy technique that can be useful to many of you just starting out with liquid eyeliner.
