Face Care Products I’m Currently Using in Spring 2012 – Quick Review

Hello lovelies!

I’ve been thinking about posting this article for a long time now. I’ve been away from Chicprofile for the whole 2011 year and during this time I used a lot of face care products from different brands. Probably I will make another post with the face care products I used in the last 6 months but for now I just want to show you which are the ones I’m currently using.

Some of you know that I prefer high end brands when it comes to take care of my complexion and if you have been reading Chicprofile in the past you probably noticed that La Mer and La Prairie are my favorite cosmetic brands. I’m also loving Clinique, Lancaster, Shu Uemura and I don’t say no to drugstore brands, because in my opinion the best products for my skin doesn’t have to be the most pricy.

I would love to know what products are your currently using, especially if you have oily to combination and sensitive skin like me. I really like to hear what are your favorite face care products and how important is face care routine for you. Do you take more care of your skin rather then cover it with makeup all the time? Please share your thoughts with the rest of us.

For me, face care routine is very important and it has been very important for the last 12 years. I don’t wear makeup everyday, I give my skin time to breathe and I never go to sleep without cleansing my skin (even though I didn’t wear makeup that day) and applying my face and eye cream.

Here are the products I’m¬† using everyday¬† (some more than others) so I will give you my quick opinion about each and every one of them. If you want me to review any of these products separately please just let me know.

I have combination skin (oily in the T-zone) and also my complexion is very sensitive. The advantage of having combination or oily skin is that once you get older your wrinkles won’t be so visible like if you had dry skin. If when I was a teenager I had to fight all those pimples, breakouts and nasty red spots because of the oiliness of my skin, now at my age I can enjoy that my complexion is aging slower than the ones having dry skin.

Chicprofile Makeup Haul – 2010 Makeup and Beauty Products from 22 Beauty Brands

Hello again my dears,

As I said in my “Chic returns from Vacation + Photos” post, while I was away traveling and relaxing I also had time to do some makeup shopping.

I decided to make a separate post and show you the products that I’ve bought (I’m sorry, I know the photo doesn’t show very well all the products). It was quite a shopping spree for me and I truly say this is the first time in my life when I go and buy so much makeup. I never had so many makeup products before ( I didn’t had Chicprofile also) since I’m not addictive to makeup and I like to keep all my products in a small makeup case ( I will probably make a photo later).

I usually don’t like to buy too much makeup because I don’t get to use all the products before they expire, but know since I have the blog things have changed because I also receive a lot of products for reviewing. Continue Reading
