Monday mask #6 - GlamGlow SuperMud Clearing Treatment

Image
byJoana Hello beauties,

Today is Monday so it’s time to talk about another mask that we tried. We came back to a well-known brand: GlamGlow.
Did you know that GlamGlow started many years ago, as a brand used in Hollywood to help actress with their blemishes and imperfections before red carpet? Yes, that is right, but now is one of the hottest brands out there and one with the most reliable and innovative products.
If you remember, we talked about the detox mask from GlamGlow, a couple of Mondays ago, you can check here. If you do remember, I bought a set with all the GlamGlow masks, so this week I decided to try another one, the SuperMud Clearing Treatment.




Honestly, I bought the GlamGlow kit because of this mask, even not having a lot of breakouts I have some whiteheads because of my gluten problem and is rare to find a mask that claims to help with whiteheads (and not only blackheads as the majority), so I wanted to give it a try.


The Supermud is an acne treatment perfect for oily and co…

Sunday #5 - It's new and we want it...

byARita Hello beauties,
Tomorrow is Monday and as always, I’m already a little bit sad. The weekend is so short and time passes so quickly. Three months and we are in Christmas! I can’t believe it. (Bear with me, I love Christmas – it’s my favorite time of the year!)
But this not why we are here. Today is still Sunday, so we are here to relax and see new things that we want to try (take this as a mental exercise, better than Yoga).
This week we wanted to try something new, so we picked a website and we only choose new things from that website. The winner for this week is Net-a-Porter!
Net-a-porter is my Achilles’ heel (I have many). The design is very appellative (but the prices not so) and the products are very beautiful and from good (and expensive) brands. I just bought one product on this website a long time ago and the order arrived very fast (as well very beautifully packaged).
So, with no more delays, here are our picks for this week…

3’ minute Beauty by Estee Lauder

Hello beauties,
A couple of months ago I think I made the best buy, I dare to say, of my entire year. I bought a kit from Estee Lauder with an eye repair cream and the double wear concealer for 10€ ($11,90). This kit is a limited edition and for what I saw, at the store that I bought, it was only for sale one month. As I said, this kit brings a miniature cream, the Advanced Night Repair Eye 5ml/ 0.17 oz. and the Double Wear Concealer 1.9ml/0.06 oz.


Comparing with the non-miniature, we’ll see that the advanced night eye has 0.5 oz. and costs $60.00 and the double wear concealer has 0.25 oz. and cost $28.00, with this numbers you can see that this was a very good deal! As you can see from the pictures, the Advance Night Repair eye cream looks very small, but do not kid yourself, this cream lasts a lot. I can tell you that I bought this almost three months ago and my jar is half full. And I use it every night! 

Besides the cream and the concealer, the packaging brought a leaflet with s…

My Holy Grail byJoana
Hello beauties,
We talk a lot about skincare and makeup, but even with the best foundation in the world, if your skin isn´t in her best shape (dehydrate, for example), it will not look good.
Skincare is the most important part of a routine, and having the best products for your face is an essential part, that´s why I care a lot with what I put on my face because, sometimes I like to go out with no makeup and for that, I need to have confidence that my skin is looking good.
I tender to change the products that I use in my skincare (I like to try new products, sue me skin!) but there is one that is in my morning & night routine and is not going anywhere: the Filorga NCTF-ESSENCE Lotion régénérante supreme. (what a long name)


This is not a cleanser or a tonic, it’s a lotion that you use before applying your serum or moisturizer and after the tonic, almost like a primer for skincare.
You have two ways of applying it, the first - which is the way I do - consists on put…

Darphin Lumiere Essentielle Serum

Hello beauties,
Today we are going to talk about one of the newest members of the Darphin gang – the Lumiere Essentielle Serum.


I started using this serum, to prepare my face for summer, why?!, because at summer we want a luminous face.
By the name you can understand that this serum is exactly for that, to give a vibrant glow to the face.
It´s a water weight freshness serum with the comfort of an oil and smells like tangerines.


First, let´s talk about the package. The outside box is exactly like all the Darphin boxes, green but the inside of this serum is so beautiful and delicate. The serum has microencapsulated essential oil of citrus, florals, cedarwood, and ginger that looks like it has orange diamonds inside.


It is composed of 90% of natural ingredients so it can be used for all type of skins including the sensitive one. And yes, even being an oil, the oily skins can also use, because the serum is light and you are not going to feel it as an oil.


In each application you just use …
