Yves Rocher Nourishing Lip Balm – Review, Swatches & Photos

Hello beauties!

This winter I get to treat my lips with the new Yves Rocher Nourishing Lip Balm, a new very limited edition cocoa scented lip balm part of the new Yves Rocher Cocoa Collection for holiday 2013. I received this Cocoa & Orange scented lip balm about two weeks ago at the second edition of the annual Beauty Bloggers meeting. Since I love I’m crazy about all chocolate and cocoa scented makeup products, I couldn’t resist testing this lip balm right away along with my new Yves Rocher Cocoa & Orange Moisturizing Hand Cream (review & photos).

When I received these products last week at the Beauty Bloggers meeting I instantly became addicted to their strong sweet and fruity scent and I’m definitely considering this collection for a Christmas gift for my friends and relatives. These are really inexpensive products and it’s totally worth buying the entire collection with the same scent which includes a lip balm, hand cream, room spray, shower gel and body lotion.

Yves Rocher Moisturizing Hand Cream Cocoa & Orange – Review

Hello pretties!

Yves Rocher Moisturizing Hand Cream Cocoa & Orange was the first product I wanted to try after I came back from the annual Beauty Bloggers Meeting (makeup look, photos). I’m addicted to all things chocolaty scented (being a chocolate addict could be reason?) things and this hand cream makes no exception. Yves Rocher recently launched their traditional Holiday 2013 Cocoa Collection and I’ve received three products that I’ll be reviewing in the upcoming days.

If chocolate & oranges is not your favorite scent then you can take a sniff at the other 2 hand creams from this same collection: Cocoa & Raspberry and Cocoa & Pistachio.

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.
