The title of the post is borrowed from the Marc Jacobs charity campaign benefiting IMCG (Interdisciplinary Melanoma Cooperative Group), but the idea is the same. Summer is coming, we are all excited but lets not forget how important skin protection is.
Together with the swimming suit, in Barcelona I had taken all the sunscreen I could get because I intend to stay as white as Snowwhite for as…

Giorgio Armani Belladonna Palette Highlighter A shimmer powder from the 2014 Armani collection that will make me shine during all spring and summer. I’ve just started using it and feel a little bad for ruining the beautiful embossed flower.

Ange Ou Demon Le Secret Eau de Toilette:
Since the launch of the Givenchy Ange Ou Demon in 2006, there have been different releases under the same name making it difficult to catch up especially because the bottle is always the same, and only the colors change. The thing to know is that every Ange ou Demon scent is pretty different from another and even the EdP and EdT versions of the same fragrance change. Ange Ou Demon Le Secret EdT, the latest Givenchy fragrance for women, is a lighter more fruity version of Le Secret EdP. It has top notes of apple, base notes of roses and jasmine tea, and finally closes with a base of patchouli and musk. It is the most flower fruity fragrance I’ve ever had so I’m waiting for Spring to use it.

A way for us to make a gift of love to children in need and get one of the most iconic serums of all time.
I’ve already picked my favorite glitter nail polishes from Orly’s Fall Winter 20013 Surreal Collection and the Secret Society collection. The thing with shimmering and glitter nail polishes is that most of them can be used as a layer over the nail polishes we already have and give totally new effect. Pick you own

Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum - Face care has been all about serums in these past 2 years. Every brand has launched their own serum, to be applied day and night before the moisturizer. This new one from Elizabeth Arden comes in individual pods which need to be squeezed to get the serum out. The package looks a little bit strange compared to what we have seen but it is said that the pods help give you the right amount of products and keeps the ingredients inside more stable

L’Acquarossa is a woody floral. It’s bright and citrus-y / berried in the opening, then a clean rose-y blended floral, not sheer really, but very much in the modern style: it’s loud enough, but has none of the depth of a classic floral (the notes: mandarin, bergamot, plum, lantana, rose, orange blossom, magnolia, red cedar, white musk and patchouli). The lantana adds a bit of spicy almost-green to the later stages, and to my nose is the only real point of interest. The base is a middling-pale woody musk, and it’s pretty clean too but I’ve seen worse. It seems to give out entirely far sooner than it should; it isn’t short-lived, exactly, but it isn’t very lively after the first hour either.
If I were on desert island and could take with me just one beauty product that would be the Caudalie Divine Oil. Suitable for use from head to toe it helps nourishing body, hair, face and I’ve been using it also on the lips. And starting from the success of this amazing Oil which has made my past holidays a delight Caudalie now has presented a whole range of products for their Divine Collection. First of all the smaller size of the Divine Oil at 30ml perfect to enter my carry around beauty bag. Its unique formula made of natural oils of grape, hibiscus, sesame and argan have great anti-oxidant effect on the skin. I use it to keep my skin smooth, hydrated and get the glowing effect.

In California, near the Bay of San Diego grows in fact a seaweed that if cut and macerated produces a special sea kelp, which makes the base of the Miracle Broth. This seaweed is the secret of the success and the evergrowing myth of Creme de La Mer.
