best-of-glossy-box-skincare-en

GlossyBox might be one of the smartest beauty-inventions ever. It brings you the feeling of a Christmas Eve. Every month, all year round. The joy of opening the pink box is almost as big as the thrill of exploring new cosmetic products. Some of them you’ve never heard of, others – would have never bought, some were on your wishlist for ages but never came around, and others are just being launched. With 2014 coming to its end, I’ve decided to look back on the 11 pretty boxes I’ve received so far and tell you everything about my favourite discoveries. Continue reading

Though, I have to give huge credit to Benefit’s Gimme Brow volumizing fiber gel.  Continue reading

Review – Garnier Cleansing Wipes Dry Skin Soft Comfort

Garnier Cleansing Wipes Dry Skin Soft Control Original

If you ask any dermatologist what the most important part of a good skincare routine is, chances are that their answer would be – cleansing. Yet for me it’s always been the hardest thing to nail: every week I promise myself to start washing my face at least two times a day and pretty much every week I fail miserably. Continue reading

How To Deal With Blonde Eyebrows

brows2

I’m naturally blonde, so my eyebrows are pretty fair. To be honest, I recently acknowledged the fact that I do have brows, like 5 years ago, and decided I had to do something about them. Before that, I was rather comfortable with my non-acquaintance, but then magazines began to declare strong eyebrows as a fashion statement. So it was time for me to act. Continue reading
