I’m approaching almost two months since I’ve completely changed my skincare routine and replaced my old products with Guerlain Skincare. I changed my previous skincare routine as I finished all the products from the brand I was testing and since I saw that my complexion was not looking as good as it used too, I knew I had to turn to some higher quality skincare products so I choose Guerlain. I bought all these products myself, from Douglas Perfumery so there’s no point in sugar coating this article and the results I’ve been seeing for the past few weeks.
Where to buy:
Romania – Now at Douglas, Sephora
International – Now at Nordstrom, Macy’s, Neiman Marcus, Douglas, Sephora, Selfridges Continue Reading
Today I want to share with you my experience about using Swiss line Cell Shock 360º Anti-Wrinkle Eye Zone Serum, a product recently launched and which I’ve been using for 2 months now. I’ve always been a serum girl since my complexion is combination to oily and I prefer using serums and lotions rather than creams. The new Cell Shock 360º Anti-Wrinkle Eye Zone Serum works like any other serum, being very concentrate and meant to be used before your cream or moisturizer and in this case before your eye cream. I also took before and after photos so you can see the results for yourselves.
This luxurious eye serum is fortified with wrinkle-filling and smoothing ingredients that work together with targeted actives to combat dark circles and recreate a perfect eye zone. The use of this serum completes the anti-aging action of any eye cream as it brings results to virtual ageless perfection.
Swiss line Cell Shock 360 Anti-Wrinkle Eye Zone Serum (15 ml/ 0.5 oz for 167.40 CHF) is suitable for everyone who has dark circles, orbital lines, wrinkles and particularly for those with dry skin. It can be used at any age and by all skin types, it only depends on you if you feel that your eye zone area needs to start using this type of product. I will say right from the beginning that I received the serum in early February 2014 when it was winter here, a very bad and cold weather but also in a period where I’ve been lacking sleep. I almost never had problems with dark circles but before I got the eye zone serum I had a couple of months when I slept very chaotic, mostly during the day and only for a couple of hours. I was really happy and excited to hear about the launch of Cell Shock 360º Anti-Wrinkle Eye Zone Serum and not to mention eager to put it to the test and see the results. Continue Reading

Even though I may not show it I’m more addicted to skincare products than makeup. I was always concerned with having a flawless complexion without a full face makeup and as the years passed I started worrying about keeping the signs of aging away. You probably noticed I don’t talk about cosmetic brands as much as I talk about makeup and nail polishes but when I do is because I have faith in that brand.
I won’t lie to you so I’m going to say it straight – I love using skincare products from luxury brands not because I’m a snob but because I’ve seen and felt the results on my own skin. I admit I’m not patient and I want to see noticeable results within 2 weeks after using a skincare product and not after 3 months, or even after 1 day if it will be possible. I’ve tested so many skincare brands over the years but my complexion really loves only two brands until now and even though I need to bleed money when I purchase a cream it’s totally worth it because the results are amazing and the product last me for about 6 months.
Today I want to introduce you to Swiss line, which is a luxury, anti-aging Swiss skincare brand offering age preventative and restorative products. Bridging the gap between science-led skincare and cosmetic skincare, our cellular-based anti-aging formulations offer the discerning customer not only measurable results, but also luxurious textures and sophisticated packaging. Swiss line just touched the Romanian land this August thanks to its distributor Beauty Senses.
Romania Launch Date – August 2013 at selected beauty salons and September 2013 at select beauty retailers (more details soon)
Since I heard Swiss line is coming to Romania I started doing my homework and researching this brand trying to find out as much as I can about its products and ingredients. Swiss line products can be categorized as “paramedical” filling the gap between traditional cosmetics and pharmaceutical products. Continue Reading

As you already know from my preview article in the past month I’ve been using Algologie Eye Contour Cream (preview & first impressions). If you want to know how I discovered Algologie products and what made me buy this product please read my preview post where I gave all the details. If you read my blog long enough you already know that I will choose a skincare product over a makeup product anytime and I admit that I tend to spend more on luxury skincare products rather than makeup. In the last couple of years I’ve been using anti aging eye creams from high end brands like La Mer and La Prairie but I still like to try new products from different brands hoping that I can find a product that will give me the same great results at a lower price.
After I read about Algologie Anti-Aging Eye Contour Cream I was really curious to try it not only because of its properties or ingredients but also because of its packaging and light formula.
Romania Launch Date – now @completebeauty.ro
International Launch Date – now @algologie.com and @onlynature.co.uk
Algologie Anti-Aging Eye Contour Cream (89.00 Lei/ £11.45 for 20 ml/ 0.68 fl oz) comes in a matte white plastic tube which is very easy to use and also hygienic because you only need to squeeze the tube a little bit for the product to come out and dust particles don’t get inside so easily like they use to when you apply cream right from the jar. I was also impressed with the amount of product included in the tube which is considerably a lot more than what normal size creams have and I’m talking about 20 ml comparing to 15 ml.

Algologie is a french cosmetic brand that has been recently introduced in my country and is also a “new entry” on my blog. I’ve always been interested more in skincare products rather than makeup so I like to choose my products wisely and I’m not afraid to spend more on a face product that is really efficient.
Since I finished my La Prairie Anti Aging Eye Cream SPF 15 (review & photos) last month, I decided to make a change in my skincare routine and test a new eye cream especially since Algologie Anti Aging Eye Contour Cream got my attention. I usually like to try a different eye cream everytime I finish a jar of La Prairie Anti Aging Eye Cream, that I’ve purchased so many times over the years, because I want to change my skincare routine every few months and test new products hoping that I can find a new eye cream with similar effect at an affordable price.

Collistar launches its new Special First Wrinkles Line, created to tackle skin problems emerging when it is too soon to use an anti-age product but too late for the basic specialties.
An increasing number of young women, in fact, feel the need to use high-tech and high-performance cosmetics to prevent signs of aging, which today make their appearance earlier than a few years ago, due to greater stress, increased pollution and a more unhealthy lifestyle.
The formula of the Special First Wrinkles Line is based on the combination of 3 high-performance active principles, each selected for its capacity to act specifically on the various problems of the skin: Oligopeptide 20, extract of Litchis and Trehalose. These active principles work together to ‘nip in the bud’ the first signs of skin aging.
