March Skincare Wishlist

Just a day later, I am back with a skincare wishlist....
These 5 products are definately must haves, and they come first in the list of priorities since no makeup looks good on poor skin, right?
(Going from left to right clockwise)
Just a few days ago I discovered the Pure Transformation Night Treatment by Bare Minerals. It is an overnight mineral treatment that claims to replenish the skin while you sleep. According to the company it dramatically reduces the appearance of pores, evens skintone, and improves skin's texture. What amazes me is that it comes in four different shades -which means that it provides some color and coverage- isn't that amazing. I mean dont we all want to look gorgeous when we wake up next to our beloved ones?????? YES!Oh, and one more thing, it won't come off on your pillow. The product is free of Parabens, Sulfates, Synthetic Fragrances and Dyes, Petrochemicals, Phthalates, GMOs and Triclosan.
Garnier's Caffeine eye roll-on is a very affordable product that actually works really well on dark circles while massaging the eye area. It hydrates this fine delicate area while it hides dark circles, acting as a light concealer.  Those of you in homeopathy, avoid this high caffeine consistency product!!!
Payot's Rides Relax is a wrinkle corrector with an amazing silky texture. After trying a sample for a few days I can tell you that this stuff really works....I only used it during night time between my eyebrows just because this past month -under a lot of stress- I had the tendency to frown in my sleep. In the morning, I noticed that my skin was very smooth in the particular area. After all the product is supposed to "relax skin micro-tensions caused by stress, stimulate collagen synthesis to correct the deepest wrinkles and promote the skin’s neuro-protection to relax and illuminate the complexion."
Attention, unlike the previous product, the Rodial Glamoxy snake serum pen is not affordable! Imagine paying more than 130 euros for 25 ml of product! But, girls it may well be worth it.... and I am saying maybe because I havent tried it on my skin. All celebrites love this botox pen which instantly lifts the face, freezes muscles and plumps fine lines and wrinkles, but I unfortunately dont have a personal opinion I can share with you. The only reason I would like to try this pen is because of the frowning problem in my sleep I mentioned previously!!!!
My final product is also from Rodial and it is the the Glam balm. I have heard soooooo many great things about it I find it hard to believe that it is no good. What I find very exciting about this product is its versatility. I mean you can use it in the face, lips, neck or even hands. I used a sample and found it to be very nourishing, although slightly oily for my skin texture. Once again the main reason for me wanting to get my hands on this product is the frowning during night time, although it worked wonders on both my dry and slightly chapped lips and hands! Additionally, everyone is saying how well it works as a pre and post flight moisture mask and how constant use can reduce fine lines and wrinkles and increase the lip volume!!!

  6. Can't wait to try the Glam Balm! Sounds like a very versetile product!!! Thank you for this informative post! Love your blog and now following, maybe you'll have time to visit mine:)


  7. this is all great, just what I need!
    the garnier roller works really good,
    lovely blog.


  8. there isnt a more over-rated product than the glam balm. i had one: too greasy, too expensive (vaseline in the tin does exactly the job at a fraction of the price) and also it kind of expired after a short time (it kind of split and then i had a kind of see-through liquid coming out of the tube). i personally don;t recommend it. i would try nip and fab instead. more affordable and the same texture.
