Hydra Genius

I am so pleased that skin care industry focuses on hydration nowadays. L’Oreal Paris launched their first daily rehydrating liquid care for dry and sensitive skin. Thanks to La Belle Famille product test panel I have got a full size product to try and review.

Full size means a 70ml big bottle, because you are advised to use the product daily two times. The first impression was more than positive because L’Oreal Paris Hydra Genius Aloe Water comes in glass bottle with a pump. I love glass bottled and heavy skin care product – it means higher quality for me and love to see myself to use them. Pump is fantastic as well because it is clean; no mess; cream never goes under your nails. I am impressed with turquoise colour too. This bottle looks extremely high quality.

After examining the packaging I cannot wait to try the cream. L’Oreal Paris Hydra Genius Aloe Water has very pleasant fragrance – nice light Aloe Vera scent. It contains Aloe Vera Sap which helps maintain skin’s water reserves, rich in minerals and perfect moisturiser. The second most important ingredient is Hyaluronic Acid which founds naturally in the skin and can hold 1,000 times its weight in water. Summarising in one sentence, L’Oreal Paris Hydra Genius Aloe Water hydrates the skin (thanks Aloe Vera) and locks-in moisture for 72 hours (thanks extra Hyaluronic Acid). Do not worry, it cannot overload the skin. It is the chemistry behind this fantastic product and my experiences say the same: Yes, it works! My skin is so soft, healthy and hydrated. Anyway I have dry and sensitive skin. I should be very careful with skin care. But L’Oreal ParisHydra Genius Aloe Water pampers my skin. It absorbs very quickly because it has light water based consistency and one pump is totally enough to treat my face and neck.

Nail Art

I was lucky enough to get two huge boxes of Elegant Touch Totally Bare nails for free through Elegant Touch Insiders review panel. I love bare nails because these help you to become more creative. I have tried Elegant Touch Totally Bare 006 before, here is my previous review.

Elegant Touch Totally Bare 003 has longer stiletto shape. I like to wear this shape at occasions, dates and parties. It is really comfortable to wear but gives this extra wow factor. I love to do nail art so I love bare nails. I use How to? YouTube videos but sometimes I fail. Luckily there are 48 artificial nails in 10 sizes in the pack, so I can start again and try to be more perfect. First I decorate the nails and glue on totally dry nails later. It saves me time and I cannot smudge my perfect nail polish.

Elegant Touch Totally Bare 005 is short oval. Perfect shape for everyday wear. Nobody will realise you have artificial nails. These look just a perfectly manicured natural feminine nails. It is better to use nail warmish on artificial nails, because it last longer and remains chip free. Bare nails are like blank canvas, you can do with them anything. Just be imaginative – you have 48 nails in 10 shapes to be creative with your nail tools and polishes.

Daz Whites and Colours

I took part in Daz Savvycircle project on Supersavvyme website. This site is really helpful, with lots of advice, reviews, coupons and product tests. I was selected to take part in Daz Whites & Colours Laundry Detergent project. I loved this funny project and fantastic product.

Of course I will repurchase Daz, because the results are amazing. After 10 washes the difference is clear. My whites are crisp & colours are bright and I have to use only one laundry detergent. I was really interested how is this possible and why only Daz can do it?

Daz has a new formula. This detergent is bleach free so it is safe on colours but contains clean and bright amplifiers to ensure your whites shine bright. It is so easy to understand and believable.

I always hesitated where to put my striped tops; white T-shirts with colourful logos; white shirts with big and bold prints; neon & black fitness apparel and even my well-loved funny socks. Daz solved these big questions. I load all of these together and no more need to worry about dull whites and faded colours. Dazzling brights on both colours and whites.

Of course Daz is outstanding also in cleaning. I tested it on mud, grass, food and gritting salt. I am very satisfied with the results. My friends and family love Daz too, the fragrance is lush and also cleans perfectly. We all love this nice and long lasting scent – nothing too intensive or fancy just the smell of clean and freshly washed clothes. My freshly changed bedding is the most enjoyable!

I tried Daz Whites & Colours washing powder, but the Daz White & Colours range contains two more products:

-DazWhites & Colours 3 in 1 Pods – the even simpler way to wash. No more dosing required!

-DazWhites & Colours Liquid – my family’s favourite consistency of washing detergent.

Fine Flowers

I have dry and sensitive skin so finding the perfect face cleanser is one of the biggest challenge for me. Cleansers usually contain ingredients like tea tree, eucalyptus to achieving the best result. These ingredients work perfectly on normal skin and are absolute necessities for oily skin types. But dry and sensitive skin becomes flaky, itchy and even fine lines and wrinkles appear. Sometimes I should stop to use my new cleanser after first use, because my skin feels extremely uncomfortable.

L’Oreal’s new Fine Flowers cleansing range is for dry & sensitive skin. La Belle Famille panel sent me a cleanser milk and toner to try and review.
FineFlowers cleansing range contains Rose and Jasmine. These natural ingredients are perfect on dry and sensitive skin. Rose has soothing and comforting properties. Jasmine moisturises and protects.

I start with Fine Flowers cleansing milk to remove my makeup and any dirt from my pores. One pump is enough to clean my face and neck. I apply this gentle and soft milk with my fingers and massage my face and neck to help remove any daily impurities. You can apply it gently with a cotton pad. Do not rub your face, this fantastic milk removes everything softly. I love the light consistency and nice light floral fragrance. My skin is soft and clean and the most important: hydrated.

After cleaning my face with Fine Flowers Milk I wipe my face and neck with Fine Flowers Toner. This product is better as other toners because it has thicker consistency. It is easier to apply on a cotton pad. Leaking or applying too much liquid is impossible. Fine Flowers Toner has nice floral fragrance as well.
After cleaning my totally clean looking face I am always wondering how dirty the cotton pad becomes. It is very important to clean your face every evening and morning before applying your moisturisers and serums. Creams cannot absorb and impact when there are impurities in pores.

L’Oreal Fine Flowers Milk and Toner leaves my skin perfectly hydrated and soft so I can concentrate on wrinkle elimination and youth activation. I can put on youth serums before bed and do not need to worry about extra hydration. Of course I wake up with better looking and younger looking face.
