Lancôme Hypnôse Doll Eyes Mascara

As you may know from my previous blog posts, I adore Lancôme Hypnôse Drama mascara, so when I saw that Lancôme was launching a new Hypnôse mascara I could not wait to buy it as see for my self how it would look on!
Well, it's safe to say I'm disappointed!Aside the fact that I love the packaging, I don't know if it's just me applying it wrong but it does not curve my lashes at all, and has no lasting power! After just a few hours it's all around my eyes, making me look like a panda (not in a good way!). On the other hand though, the wand is actually really nicely shaped and I must sat it's amazing for getting easily all the bottom lashes, and it does lengthen.
Though, if I had to chose between Hypnôse Doll Eyes and  Hypnôse Drama I would have no doubt and go for the second one, it lasts longer and gives the lashes a fuller more curved and more volumized effect!
Here is how it looks on me:

hope this was helpful! let me know what you think of this mascara if you've recently purchased it! xoxo

Avène Soothing Eye Contour Cream

If you've been on the lookout for an eye cream that is not anti-aging (I don't feel like I need it yet being only 21) but that is really moisturizing you should give this one a try!
I don’t normally use under eye creams, but lately my skin around the eye are has been feeling really dry and much thinner than usual, so I decided it was about time I started taking care of that part of my face as well.
So I popped into the pharmacy and the lovely lady there suggested this soothing and moisturizing cream that suits young people's skin needs better than an anti-aging one.

I've been using it for the past week and I've already seen a significant difference in how the skin looks and feels to the touch, not so thin anymore and way more smooth too! Plus a little tiny bit really goes a long way, it doesn't feel greasy at all and absorbs quickly! what more could you ask for!?!

here comes clear skin!

School/ College/University is back, and so am I, and I could not be more excited about a this post! After a lifetime and a fortune spent in dermatologist treatment (including laser therapy) and tons of creams I found something that literally made my skin visibly clearer in a matter of days: Clinique anti-blemish solution 3 step system.
The way this system works is through cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing.

Step 1: Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam ,
Great for  removing dirt and excess oil that builds up during the day and clogs pores, it leaves my skin feeling squeaky clean and soft (not tight at all)
Step 2: Clarifying Lotion ,
is basically a medicated (salicylic acid) toner that exfoliates the skin, and contains oil absorbing powders to control shine. I love this toner, it tingles a bit but you can see right away how much brighter the skin looks after applying it.
Step 3: Clearing Moisturizer
This moisturizer contains Benzoyl Peroxide, that is very well known to be very effective against acne and breakouts. I love the smell of this moisturizer and the fact that has kind of a dewy finish.

Some days I might feel the need of some extra moisture, so I’ll put my Avenè moisturizer on after the third step.

Overall I adore these 3 products and I’m so happy I found them, so I won’t have to take Accutain during winter as I was supposed to, and enjoy my clear skin!
