Rise and shine, my dear followers! Today I had the time to make a home-made avocado mask and my skin is very thankful for the pampering! Well, I'm really trying my best from time to time to give my skin some good, natural ingredients as much as possible. As we already know, avocado is loaded with vitamin E, healthy fats and antioxidants, so it helps to keep the skin smooth. The honey helps with brightening and the uncooked oatmeal can work as an exfoliant while also soothing the skin.
¼ cup uncooked oatmeal
2 teaspoons honey
2 teaspoons olive oil
Simply mash the avocado and combine the ingredients in a small bowl and apply to your face. Let the face mask sit on your face for about 20 minutes. Then rinse with warm water and follow with your favorite moisturizer.
Enjoy your beautifully smooth, fresh and energized skin! ;)

Love story happened. It's inspired by Parisian romance and the love padlocks on the bridge of thePont des Arts in Paris. I have been invited to lock my love with the new Chloe fragrance and I did! I locked my Chloe love padlock on Mesarski bridge in Ljubljana. So now it's official, we are in love, forever.. ;) New Chloe Love Story fragrance mixes notes of neroli, orange blossom, jasmin stephanotis and cedar.
Chloe's been one of my favorite frangrances and with this amazing new smell they inspired me once again. It's lovely and sexy in one. Well done, Chloe!

Hey beauties! Today's beauty report is about a "double cleansing system" with products from SENSAI skincare brand.The SENSAI SILKY PURIFYING line reflects a passion for purify that is intrinsic to the culture of Japan. With extra-gentle ingredients, luxurious sensations and relaxing fragrance, SENSAI cleansing products and the double cleansing approach wash away impurities leaving the complexion cleansed and ready for subsequent skincare.
For this speacial Sensai double cleansing system I chose:
1. SENSAI SILKY PURIFYING CLEANSING GEL:
Step 1: "Refreshingly smooth rinse-off gel with extra-gentle fast-acting scrub that removes oil-based dirt and make-up”
Actions and Benefits:
- the scrub gently and speedily brings up to the surface any make-up and sebum clogging the pores;
- cleanses to create a smooth, youthful silky textured skin.
- use in the evenings as the 1st step of the double cleansing and use in the mornings depending on the skin types;
- take a small amount and spread onto entire face in circular motion, concentrating around the nostrils;
- rinse well with lukewarm water after the scrub melts and the hand motion gets light.
- skin feels fresh;
- extra-gentle scrub gently removes make-up completely.
2. SENSAI SILKY PURIFYING CREAMY SOAP:
“Step 2: Rich silky soap with a lavish form and moist finish."
Actions and Benefits:
- the silky smooth lather gently gets rid of dirt on the skin;
- cleanses to create a skin that’s smooth, soft and silky.
- use in the mornings and evenings as the 2nd step of the double cleansing system;
- take small amount on the palm and work into lather well with water;
- smooth onto moistened skin in circular motion;
- rinse well with lukewarm water.
- skin feels smooth, soft and silky;
I only just started using this double cleansing system and I have to say that so far I'm more than happy with the feeling of my skin after using both products! I would truly recommend the Sensai Silky Purifying produtcs to anyone who have high requirements when it comes to face cleansers.
All in all, don't forget the pure beauty is coming from inside. Try to live everyday fully and happy as much as possible!
Today's beauty star is the hottest product on the market at the moment: Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate.
Shiseido - the master of Japanese skincare launched a new product that contains Ultimune Complex that was developed from 20 years of dermatological research. The concentrate promises to improve your skin's immunity, maximizing its natural ability to renew and regenerate itself to be more beautiful. Shiseido states that this product works for all ages and skin types.
As I have been writing about my skin before, I'll just quickly remind you about my skin ''profile": my skin is dry to normal, once in a while when I'm really stressed my skin breaks out, but in general nothing big. I have little blackheads over my nose and quite thin skin under my eyes, so my fatigue is immediately visible.
I have been using this product for the last week now. It's extremely lightweight and has a gel-like consistency. I apply 1 pump in the morning and in the evening after cleansing and before moisturizing my face. After a few days of use, I've noticed my skin looks brighter and energized. I don't notice the glow yet, but I guess it will take some more time of using the product to get glowy results. And about wrinkles I can't say a word because I don't have them yet.
All in all the Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate looks promising, since my skin became brighter, smoother and softer after just a couple of days of use.
As always I believe beauty comes from inside. With good food, a little workout and daily happy moments you'll get there for sure! :)
