The Honey Mud by May Lindstrom.

   I love that all of May Lindstrom's products have a uniformity thought the whole collection. They look very simple yet gorgeous at the same time and they all can be mixed and matched depending on what you want to achieve with your mixture. This gorgeous skin treat comes in a 100ml (3,38 fl. oz.) dark blue glass jar (which looks black) and is called The Honey Mud.

One Brand Skin Care Regimen. Tata Harper.

   First of all, all Tata Harper products are cruelty-free and 100% natural. All of them are abundant with botanical extracts and nutrients. If that's something you're looking for in your skincare than Tata Harper is a good brand to look into. However, like with any other brand, it doesn't mean that every single product will work for you.

Evening Skincare Ritual in Three Simple Steps.

  As long as this post is about a very quick and easy skincare ritual I'll try to keep it as short as possible. We all have those days when we barely manage to brush our teeth before bed and those when we have a bit more time and energy to treat our skin, but not quite enough to stick with a ten-step routine. Here's a quick version of a pamper skincare ritual that I reach for at least three times a week and it always takes me about ten minutes.

My Lightweight Morning Skin Care Routine for Warmer Days

Unlike in most other parts of the world, September in California doesn't mean that the autumn is here. This year autumn here started with a heat wave with temperature rising over 100F. Needless to say I didn't want to use heavy moisturizers in the morning. But I still needed to have something on my skin before applying the sunscreen. So here's my hot day morning skin care I've been reaching fore.

Evanhealy Hibiscus Willow Flower Mask

     Do you remember that comical look of a woman with a green face mask on her face and a bunch of hair rollers on her head? The one that was so often portrayed in old movies. And men in those movies would always get scared by that look. Well, call Kubrick and von Trier because this face mask is about to step up your scary-mask-face game quite a bit.

Effortless Makeup Essentials

    This summer has been quite hot in California so far. Thus I've been either skipping on makeup entirely or wearing a bare minimum of it. The first thing that I ditch entirely in my makeup routine during these hot days is the foundation. I don't want it melting off my face, mixing with sunscreen and sweat.

My Face Mask Vault

     In my skin care, I prefer switching between a few products, therefore having more than one product for each purpose. I always have at least two cleansers, two moisturizers, two serums, two eye creams etc. That's how I've built this face mask collection over the last few months. I use them not as often as moisturizers and toners so when I buy a new mask turns out I still have a few to use.

All You Need to Keep Your Body Moisturized This Winter

    I don't like spending a lot of money on something that won't last more than a few uses. And body care tends to be something I go through very quickly. Mostly because you need more product to cover your body rather than your face, duh. So when you spend $100 on face oil that you'll be able to use for almost a year it doesn't feel so painful as when you spend the same amount on a body oil that'll be gone at the end of the month.

Moody Winter Makeup Look (All Cruelty Free)

    Hello, everyone. This winter in California has been very gloomy and rain has been pouring down almost 24/7. So one day at Sephora I saw this liquid lipstick by Kat Von D and it called for me. The very same day I picked up my very first Champagne Pop by Becca. Oh yes, I'm that late to the party. So this is how this look was born in my head. And I must say I've surprised myself with how much I loved the look of nearly black lip color on my face. I'm more of a lover of "all natural" makeup looks.

New in My Skin Care Rotation. Morning

   Sometimes I really don't have time and patience for a 10-step morning routine. And these past few weeks I've been really lazy with my skin care. Not lazy enough to skip it completely, however,  but sometimes I would use a toner and a cotton pad instead of washing my face with a cleanser. And let me tell you it feels great.

New In My Skin Care Rotation. Evening.

    Switching to cruelty-free products, and I've said it many times already, made me go outside of my comfort zone and take so many scary leaps of faith with many different brands and products. And I haven't been disappointed as many times as I expected. So today I'm excited to share with you these four products that have won their place in my heart and my daily skin care routine.

Chantecaille Protect The Lions Palette. Is It Worth $85?

    It took a few months for me to gain the courage to pay $85 for these four eye shadows. The only reason why I bought them eventually was the fact that they look so out-of-this-world beautiful. They look like they can go with any outfit, any skin tone, any occasion, so maybe I can justify the price this way, I thought. 

Moondust Palette By Urban Decay

   I am a big lover of a natural makeup look, and that's something that 95% of the time I'm going for every time I sit down in front of my vanity table. But I think in every girl there's a voice that wakes up from time to time to whisper in your ear something like "let's smear some glitter all over your face" or "deep blue smokey eye is the new natural". Am I right?
