L’occitane Creme Perfectrice

November 22, 2015

As promised, Lets talk about the Creme Perfectrice de L’occitane, I got a 7 day deluxe sample a couple of weeks ago after signing up for it online { I personally feel its a great way to test a product, not that I expect a miracle within days but just to see how superficially it would feel on the skin}, and I have to say this moisturizer is being so lovely on my combination skin. With my move to London and its weather, my skin is all over the place sometimes I have dry patches, which is a first for my normally oily skin, then I would go back to oily and I could feel like it need it to be hydrated, after using the moisturizer for a week morning and night, my skin feels plump and bright no more dry patches, It really gives it a glow and it has help to improve the texture of it, I’m really loving it.

The moisturizer promises to leave your skin feeling smooth, soft and velvety and to reduce your pores, fine lines and imperfections, although I do think is too soon for me to say something about helping with fine lines and pore reduction, I do think is does the work with making your skin feeling soft and velvety.  The Creme Perfectrice does have a scent, I really like it but I do love rose and peony scents so if that’s a problem for you this might not be the one for you to try. In the morning I just wash my skin and then I put the moisturizer before my SPF and makeup and at night I use it every other nigh combining it with my Artemis oil by Sunday Riley {Another fave! read my review about it if you haven’t}.
I would definitely give it a shoot if you are looking for a new moisturizer, it’s really a fantastic formula! Until next time…

Love,

Paola

November Must-Haves

November 7, 2015

The year is almost over, are you feeling the Christmas spirit already? I’m loving it! But my skin is lost with this cold weather, I got a deluxe sample of  L’occitane Pivoine Sublime Perfecting cream and it’s great, I’ll do a blog post about it next week so stay tuned, because it is worth it, my skin is loving it! I’m really enjoying the Rose hand cream also from L’occitane, I like the scent and texture on my hands. I keep looking for bags that can carry a lot but are perfect for walking around and this shopper bag from madewell looks perfect for it {use code FALLREVAMP for 25% until Monday Nov, 9th!}, there are a few different colors but I love the dark grey one, It’s a be very versatile color.

Now can we talk about this faux-leather pants from Saint Laurent? So rockstar, so statement {here’s a more affordable option}. I love tartan/plaid print for the fall, and the Marc by Marc Jacobs scarf it’s super cool and a bit different from the traditional red color ones {here a super affordable option from Boohoo}. Two pieces from H&M, because they are fantastic, and a must have for me are Sweater/jumpers like this one, the slouchier the better, simple! Also this cape is stylish and functional so its a good buy.  I had to add this lovely candle called Liquid Amber from Diptyque, is a new scent specially for the holidays, and smells so good, a mixture of cinnamon, sugar, and musk, perfect for the cold weather and to make your place feel cozy and yummy. I hope you have a beautiful month, Happy November! Until next time.

Love,

Paola

El año ya casi termina!! no lo puedo creer, y ya se siente el espíritu navideño! Me encanta! Lo malo es que mi piel esta como perdida con este clima frío de Londres, conseguí una muestra de L’occitane Pivoine Sublime Perfecting cream y me esta gustando mucho, voy a hacer un articulo en el blog porque merece la pena, a mi piel le esta gustando mucho! Tambien para este frío, estoy disfrutando mucho esta crema de manos con aroma a rosas de L’occitane, se siente super rica en mis manos. Esta cartera de Madewell llamada the Mini Transport esta perfecta para las que nos gusta cargar de todo y caminar por la cuidad,{usa el código FALLREVAMP para tener 25%  de descuento pero la promo termina el lunes Nov, 9th!} Tienen varios colores pero me gusta mucho este gris piedra, porque es super versátil.

Ahora podemos hablar de estos pantalones? son de cuero sintetico de Saint Laurent, total rockstar, y perfecto para esta temporada {estos estan tambien super cool y mas accesibles}. A mi me encanta el tartan o plaid como le llames para el invierno y esta bufanda de Marc by Marc Jacobs esta super nice porque es un poco diferente del color rojo tradicional {aquí una opción super accesible de Boohoo}. Dos piezas de H&M,  porque estan perfectas, como este suéter super flojo y entre mas flojo mejor! Esta capa negra es super cool y muy de moda ademas que te mantiene caliente con el frío so es buena compra. Tengo que agregar esta vela de Diptyque que se llama Liquid Amber,  y es un nuevo aroma para la temporada de navidad, y esta tan rica!! Es una mezcla de canela, azúcar y bosque, perfecta para el frío de estos meses. Espero que tengan un mes espectacular, Feliz Noviembre!! Hasta la próxima…

Love,

Paola
