Sostar Silk & Olive Anti-ageing cream

26 Sep 2016

There are so many great greek brands out there and  have been using plenty of them (Korres, Apivita etc) but Sostar is a new brand for me. I was looking to purchase a good moisturising cream to use regularly but especially on days when I feel my skin drier than usual so I decided to give this brand a try. 

The Sostar Silk & Olive Anti-ageing cream is enriched with silk proteins, organic oil and collagen. The silk proteins help skin maintain its natural moisture and in combination with olive oil, they deeply moisturise skin, restore its elasticity and leave skin feeling fresh and renewed.  In addition, silk provides exceptional hydration and a velvety texture.

Also, the organic oil provides antioxidant properties that fight free radicals responsible for ageing. 

This product is dermatologically tested and suitable for all skin types.  It is not tested on animals, it is parabens free and with hypoallergenic fragrances.

The formula of this cream is rich and light at the same time, and it is fully absorbed on the skin without making it greasy. I usually apply it in the morning after cleansing my skin, or at days when I feel my skin drier than usual, due to the terrible weather.

It is honestly an excellent product and one of the best day creams I have ever used. The feeling after I apply this cream is amazing. It also smells lovely, it has a soft sweet scent which I really like. I am glad I decided to try this brand and this cream and I will definitely try other products from Sostar.

Five nude lipsticks to wear now

23 Sep 2016

I haven't worn a nude lipstick in a long time now. In spring and summer I get so excited to wear my pink shades and I do this until the end of August. But now, it's time to re-discover some nude shades I have been keeping at the back of my dresser and give them some love!

Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask

21 Sep 2016

Have you ever tried a product that is so good, you want to use it all the time? And I am talking about the Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask that I ordered from i-herb a while back and received a couple of weeks ago. 

I read plenty of reviews about this clay mask and after I watched one of my favourite youtubers Shannon from Shaaanxo channel use this mask, I decided to order one myself. She used this mask and totally recommended it! So yes, I had to buy it myself cause 1) I love clay masks and 2) I haven't used a bubble mask before.

My skin is combination to oily and it is strong enough to handle any mask. And my skin loves clay masks. And this one is definitely a favourite. First of all, the process is so fun. The mask bubbles within a few minutes after you apply it and creates a huge foam around your face.  I totally laughed really hard when I saw my face in the mirror.

(I look like a cartoon haha, it is so funny to see this mask 
double its size and look like this)

Application is easy. You clean your face like you normally do and you apply the mask in circular motions. After a while, you will notice a tingling sensation and the mask will start getting really bubbly. It's like a foam party on your face! It is recommended to wet your fingers and massage the mask once it becomes bubbly, and leave it on for five minutes more, then wash it off. It may start to feel a little uncomfortable but nothing major, it is bearable.

And then, boom! What a difference. My skin was so clean, I couldn't believe it! And so bright and glowy. Yess, my skin was so clean, it was like I put my face on washing machine with bleach and it became extremely clean. So clean and fresh.

Washing off the mask can be a little tricky. It doesn't come off easily but please, do not scrub this thing off. Just be patient and use soft and circular motions and lots of water, and the mask will dissolve within minutes.  I usually use lukewarm water, I find it easier to dissolve my clay masks.

I totally recommend this clay mask. Best thing I have ever tried in a face mask in the last months. Go and buy it! You will see amazing results and if you have combination to oily skin and large pores, you will be amazed by the results of this mask. 

However, if you have sensitive skin, it may irritate your skin, I read a few reviews that said this mask irritates sensitive skin, so you will have to do your research first before buying it. But for oily skin and large pores? Totally a winner!

Mascaras - What I have been using

18 Sep 2016

Hello girls! Today I have a post about the four mascaras I am currently using and testing, and I must admit I found some affordable and really good mascaras.  

I am always on the hunt to find the perfect mascara, but I haven't tried any high-end ones so I cannot give a complete opinion on what is the perfect mascara cause I haven't tried any expensive ones that are said to be really really good. But I have been testing these four and I will give you an honest review on how they performed on me.

Beauty Test Box*

15 Sep 2016

It is still summer here so I am allowed to receive a summer beauty box full of lovely goodies, right? I was contacted by the lovely team of Beauty Test Box in Greece and I couldn't be happier cause I wanted to try this box for ages, but they did not ship to Cyprus. But guess what? They now send their beauty boxes to Cyprus and I am very excited! So girls, if you live here and you want to try a subscription beauty box, this is your chance.

This box arrived within a week and I received the cutest little red box I have ever seen! There are six products inside this beauty box, so let's see what are these products.

Foltene Eyelash and Eyebrow Treatment - this product is formulated for thin eyelashes and eyebrows. Its special formula is designed to promote the growth of lashes, strengthens and improves their general appearance by making them stronger and thicker.

This product is like a mascara which makes it so easy to use. You just apply this on your lashes and eyebrows and I have already tried this product as soon as I received it. I will come back with a full review and results.

FBM Anagennesis Sunshine Face Cream SPF50 - I use a sunscreen all year around so I was excited to see a product like this included in this box. The FBM Anagennesis Sunshine Face Cream offers high protection of SPF50 and protects against UVA and UVB radiation.  This product also offers protection against IR radiation, which destroys collagen and causes ageing.  Contains aloe, panthenol and oats for added protection and hydration.

Deborah Milano Bronzing Perfect Highlighting Stick: this bronzer is creamy and easy to apply.  Medium pigmentation, light texture that allows to build while applying, it is definitely a great summer product. 

Wet 'n' Wild Color Icon Bronzer SPF 15 Powder: this is a multipurpose product but it is definitely not a bronzer. This shade is too light to be used as a bronzer. It can be used under the eyes to brighten the eye area, as a highlighter (although it is not shimmery at all) and for a light contouring if your skin tone is pale. It can be also used as a powder to give skin a nice subtle finish. If I were to purchase this, I would choose a darker shade but I will definitely use it as a powder in winter.

Wet 'n' Wild MegaLast Lip Color in Putty Persimmon - these Wet 'n' Wild lipsticks need no introduction. We all have them, we all love them, they are super longlasting and I personally own plenty of them. But I don't own this shade which is a great addition to my collection.  

Putty Persimmon is the perfect shade for summer. It is a vibrant red/orange shade that looks lovely with a tan (yes, I still have a lovely healthy glow from my vacation). Love this shade and I will be using it if not now, definitely next summer!

Deborah Milano Eyeliner - this eyeliner was a pleasant surprise cause I wanted to purchase a liquid eyeliner for the new season. I haven't worn a liquid eyeliner for months, the weather here was so hot and my makeup was minimal. This eyeliner has a special thin applicator that ensures a flawless line. The colour is dark black and  very intense.

So these are the products that are included in this lovely beauty box. This is for sure a summer box but I will definitely use these products. My favourite is the Foltene Eyelash and Eyebrow treatment and I cannot wait to see the results of this product on my lashes.

I will remind the girls in Cyprus that this beauty box is available in our country, so it is a great chance to try new products.  You can find it here.

Thank you for joining me here today and I will see you soon!

*These products were given to me for free, but all opinions are my own and 100% honest.
