Beating Winter

IMG_8499 copyAs lovely as winter can be, it’s not exactly the kindest weather on our skin. I usually go dry during cold seasons but not this year thanks to two miraculous products that I couldn’t not share with you. Aesop Rejuvenate Intensive Body Balm & Aesop Geranium Leaf Body Scrub

IMG_8426 copy Aesop Rejuvenate Intensive Body Balm:

If you suffer from dryness occasionally or all the time then worry no more, because this body balm will leave your skin hydrated with a healthy glow. It has a light texture to it and sinks into skin right away. My least favorite part about it, is the scent, although now it’s kind of growing on me but I have to be honest you might not like how it smells at first but that’s just a compromise I’m willing to make to get skin as soft as silk.

Another product that’s not scented deliciously but works miraculously is Aesop body scrub, this too helps in leaving your skin silky and beautiful since it gets rid of all the flakiness and dryness. I honestly don’t think I’ve ever had a scrub that worked better than this one. Again the scent isn’t the greatest but I’d rather use something that really works than get something that is overly fragranced and would do more damage than good.

& Other Stories Haul

photo 2-1 copyI still have so much to tell you about my summer vacation and what you shouldn’t miss if you plan your euro-trip but I seriously couldn’t wait to rave and tell you all about my new find (probably not so new to so many people).

Paris has been our sixth and last stop and you certainly know what Paris is mostly famous for: The shopping, lots of it. On one of the golden days, as we were walking under the sunlight and as we passed by the historical Place Vendome I was stunned by the beauty of fashion that revolved in one circle, we finally reached rue Saint-Honoré and there it was “& other stories” which is an amazing shopping store, it easily entered my list of top places to shop at. Lucky for me they also have a store in London, I’m definitely going to be a regular.

This is what I have bought:

-Angora-blend sweater
Metal Choker Necklace (I forgot to take a picture of it)
-Panel leggings
-Punk Bouquet body wash
-Punk Bouquet body scrub: I have already tried this product and I have fallen harshly in love with it. Sometimes scrubs could be a bit hard on my skin, not this one, incredibly soft( the softest scrub I have ever used) yet gets rid of any dry patches, leaving my skin polished with a silken texture and a luscious scent.
-Punk Bouquet body Soufflé: I wouldn’t be exaggerating if I said I want to marry this product. It has every quality that I look for in a body lotion: Scent lasts for the entire day and the next day!, sinks into my skin as soon as I apply it which does not make me feel like a sticky creature that needs to be dried before touching anything & just smells absolutely heavenly.
-Equatorial Dreams body scrub
-Linsay Salmon nailpolish: Highly pigmented, long lasting and dries up so fast which is something that I REALLY appreciate.
-Say Pink nailpolish
