New Products for a Spa Day at Home

Having a spa day at home can be just as relaxing and beautifying as a day spent somewhere expensive. Pick a day when you won’t have any interruptions, turn off your mobile phone, and light some candles to set the scene. Use a body scrub to completely exfoliate your arms, legs, and torso. Your skin will feel soft, smooth and healthy when you get out of the shower. Follow with deep nourishing and a self tanner to achieve a glow as if you just came back from a beach holiday. Enjoy those new and innovative products below that have just been launched this spring.

LA MER The Renewal Body Oil Balm
One of my favorite new products! A lightly scented hydrating body balm that melts into a silken body oil on contact to create hydrated glowing skin all over.

LIERAC Body-Hydra Micropeeling
This innovative micropeeling scrub hydrates and plumps the skin while providing it with a gentle exfoliating action. Infused with two forms of hyaluronic acid, as well as repairing silicium, it re-firms and re-plumps the skin, leaving it radiant and renewed. I personally love its smell.

HAIR RITUEL BY SISLEY Color Perfecting Shampoo
I don’t have grey hair yet and don’t colour my hair but I have many girlfriends who truly suffer that they cannot go to the hair dresser at the moment. Therefore I recommend this shampoo that is designed to gently cleanse and care for colored and highlighted hair. The color is prolonged and doesn’t fade after repeated washes.

SISLEY Self Tanning Hydrating Body Skin Care
SISLEY Self Tanning Hydrating Facial Skin Care
Get a summer glow while enjoying your home office. Those two new self-tanners come with a fresh and pleasant fragrance, and are enriched with moisturizing active ingredients, to give the skin a lasting golden glow. From the very first application, they provide a natural-looking tan (even on light skin). To achieve optimum results on your body, use the velvet tan applicator mitt provided with the product.

CLARINS Extra-Firming Neck & Décolleté
Inspired by the movement of the sunflower’s stem, Clarins Laboratories combined sunflower extracts – unsaponifiables obtained from the seed and auxins obtained from the stem – to visibly improve the elasticity and firmness of the flexible neck and décolleté area, boosting the skin’s resistance to daily bending and rotating while protecting against premature signs of aging.

VALMONT Primary Pomade
Created to provide intense nourishment for even the driest skin, this next-generation balm plunges deep into the epidermis to replenish and soften dry or flaky skin. The skin is smooth, soft, feels comfortable, and heals faster after an aggression. You can use it on the face – I personally love putting it on my elbows, feet and knees.

Home Spa

Last week, I received a lovely surprise from the Estée Lauder Companies. A box filled with all sorts of amazing products from several of their brands (I am always amazed how many beauty labels actually belong to the American conglomerate…) that are perfect for a spa day at home. Thank you!

With all of the stresses of the current crisis, it’s important to indulge sometimes. I am truly missing seeing my friends, dressing up to go out and having a spa treatment. The latter can be achieved easily at home and why not make it a monthly at-home regimen in the future to relax and revitalize while saving some money.

I am planning to look all radiant and glowing when social life will finally back on. Working from home can also be seen as some kind of holidays. Always see the good side of life and enjoy those products here that I can truly recommend for some pampering at home. You can order them all online.

CHANEL Desert Dream

«I was looking for something poetic, like a memory – a natural filter that makes everything look dreamier.» Lucia Pica

Today’s post about CHANEL‘s new S/S 2020 make-up collection, called DESERT DREAM, will make you literally dream, something we need in today’s difficult times.

If the eye is a camera with its shutter open – always recording, turning experience into image – it is Lucia Pica’s unerring instinct to train her lens on visions less familiar. Seeking inspiration for her S/S 2020 collection, the CHANEL Global Creative Makeup and Color Designer took a photographic trip to the center of the ancient desert, an expedition that uncovered a completely new perspective on color.

Initially drawn to the desert for its famous orange dunes, sacred cave paintings and lunar plains, Lucia Pica was soon captivated by the uncanny silence of the vast nothingness she found there, its powerful stillness moving her to reappraise the landscape through fresh eyes. Shifting her gaze toward the quieter hues of the quartzes, basalts and shales scattered across the desert floor, and forests bleached by the relentless sun, Lucia Pica unearthed a muted palette that is surprising new territory for her. DESERT DREAM is characterized by peachy rose tones, cool browns and the romantic undercurrents of mauve, whose shimmering, at times metallic textures echo the desert’s hidden treasures.

«It was beautiful in the desert but quite unexpected,» Lucia Pica says. «In the desert, there is almost a universe of one single, dominant color – mauve – which really came to life with the particular photographic process we used.»

Like distant memories, the dreamy Polaroid pictures at the heart of DESERT DREAM lend their sensual soft focus and painterly abstractions to a makeup collection that is perhaps Lucia Pica’s most poetic take on femininity yet. Using the prints’ soft colors to bring subtle emotion to the face – mysterious, mauve intensity to the eyes, planes of warm light on the high cheeks and red-hot desert heat on the lips – Lucia Pica evokes a womanly state of inner calm, self-possession and utter contentment.

Neo-Pearl Collection by OPI

Something for all nail aficionados to look forward to! Illuminate fingers and toes with the new Neo-Pearl Collection by OPI which will hit the shelves end of April 2020 when hopefully all stores will be open again. Modern iridescent hues for Spring 2020, this collection includes 12 shades in pinks, purples, blues and nudes. Neo-Pearl brings together natural translucence
and luminosity for a soft and modern update to the metallic nail trend.

From accessories to textiles, pearls are making a reappearance on runways and red carpets in
unexpected, non-traditional ways. The pearl’s influence is seen in each shade. Its whimsical and
feminine qualities combine with bold chrome undertones for elegantly radiant hues. Soothing elements from land and sea lend hints of icy blues and greens to iridescent shades. Classic nudes are infused with notes of blush, rose and lilac for a sophisticated twist on these wearable favorites.

Six of the Neo-Pearl Collection shades will be available in GelColor and Nail Lacquer formulas,
including:
Shellabrate Good Times!
Celebrate your inner luminosity with a classic ivory shade that’ll make you glisten.
Pretty in Pearl
Feeling pearly pretty? Elevate the classic nude with hints of copper and orange.
Shellmates Forever!
OPI introduces a pink that is one shell-of-a-color!
Just a Hint of Pearl-ple
Vintage violet is a smart choice to stir an abundance of oohs and aahs.
Did You See Those Mussels?
Get ready to flex – this pearly blue brilliance will buff up your nails.
Two Pearls in a Pod
Make everyone green with envy. OPI’s green sheen will glisten and shine.

The collection’s other six hues will be exclusively available in Infinite Shine formula, including:
You’re Full of Abalone
Experience an ivory pearlescent glow of soft and luminous beauty.
I’m a Natural
Dare to go bare with a flawless pearlescent nude that’s tan-talizing.
Glisten Carefully!
This lilac pearlescent screams wisdom, nobility and passion – glisten and glow!
Love or Lust-er?
Deep, shadowy purple and pearlescent shine add drama to your next mani/pedi.
Two Baroque Pearls
Try some affordable luxury – a pearlescent blue shade that will make you feel rich.
Olive for Pearls!
This soft, opulent, olive-y goodness will turn heads like never before.

As I am in the lilac mood, my favorite shade of the collection is: Glisten Carefully!

GelColor provides a salon-perfect finish with up to three-week wear, while Infinite Shine offers a highshine finish and traditional lacquer application. Nail Lacquer features a highly-pigmented, rich formula for even application without streaking.

Follow Jo Malone London to Lavenderland

Jo Malone London introduces a new limited-edition collection, offering a fresh perspective on an iconic ingredient which you already know I adore: English lavender.

Journey to an enchanted world of violet visions, where English lavender meanders in purple pathways across the countryside. Discover a trio of takes on this timeless note, each offering a different presentation of natural lavender. One strikingly aromatic, the second fresh with a cool woodiness, and the third cascading with soft florals. Fall out of the ordinary and into a new lavender story.

The collection includes three limited-edition Colognes, each available in 30ml decorative bottles:

Wisteria & Lavender
Cascading wisteria frames a characterful house, creating a nostalgic purple picture. This soft floral presentation of English lavender is entwined with sweet wisteria and powdery heliotrope. A picturesque trio, cocooned in clean and delicate white musk.
Silver Birch & Lavender
Morning light across a rambling garden, framed by silver birch trees.
The air fresh with a crisp coolness that cuts through the iconic scent of English lavender. Refreshed with a squeeze of grapefruit, grounded by a woody, charismatic base of silver birch and a compelling note of roasted oak.
Lavender & Coriander
Aromatic English lavender nestled in a thriving and fragrant herb garden, bolstered by the striking note of coriander. Earthy sage deepens the lavender’s timeless scent, while creamy tonka bean adds an unexpected touch of warmth and sensual balance.

«In perfumery, we mainly use French lavender. It is such a familiar, popular scent, so we wanted to explore it in ways that you might not be used to. We’ve taken natural English lavender and gone in three different directions with the other ingredients, to give it that Jo Malone London twist.» – Celine Roux, Global Head of Fragrance

Each of these distinctive Colognes adds something unique when paired with another scent from the brand’s refined palette. Jo Malone London recommends pairing:
Wisteria & Lavender with Peony & Blush Suede for a sensual floral combination. Blooming peonies add opulence to dainty lavender and wisteria, with a soft trail of musk.
Silver Birch & Lavender with Wild Bluebell for an aromatic floral combination. The dewy delicacy of bluebell is wrapped in herbaceous notes of English lavender, warmed with amberwood.
Lavender & Coriander with Lime Basil & Mandarin for a zesty and aromatic combination. Spicy coriander and a kick of basil add herbaceous edge to sparkling citrus notes.

Two limited-edition home products complete the new collection, both infused with the scent of Lavender & Musk.

Scent the road to dreams with Jo Malone London’s limited-edition Pillow Mist. Aromatic English lavender mingles with a cocooning note of musk to create a soft and sensual scent that helps the user relax and unwind for a good night’s sleep.
Create a tranquil atmosphere with a Diffuser in the same fragrance. The perfect scent to place on a bedside table or dresser to encourage a relaxing mood.

World Sleep Day

Today is World Sleep Day, an annual event, intended to be a celebration of sleep and a call to action on important issues related to sleep, including medicine, education, social aspects and driving. It is organized by the World Sleep Day Committee of World Sleep Society and aims to lessen the burden of sleep problems on society through better prevention and management of sleep disorders.

We all know that a good night’s sleep can mean good skin health and a glowing complexion because when you’re sleep-deprived, your body makes more of the stress hormone cortisol. Today’s post is dedicated to a good night’s sleep and everything you need to awake up energized and radiant. Here are some beautifying next-generation night treatments that target specific skin concerns, from hyperpigmentation, pore size, fine lines and wrinkles and skins firmness.

It’s enriched with powerful ingredients that stimulate cell growth to promote a youthful-looking complexion – Hyaluronic Acid plumps with instant hydration, while Plantago Extract brightens and evens tone.

BYNACHT Perfect Nacht Sleeping Balm
Helps to promote sleep

Research shows that the skin’s renewal rate almost doubles at night because it’s free from external stressors, making it more receptive to active ingredients. BYNACHT’s ‘Perfect Nacht’ balm helps to ease you into slumber with a fragrant blend of essential oils. Ylang Ylang Flower Oil, Melissa Officinalis Leaf, and Lavandula Angustifolia Oil are proven to support a good night’s rest, so you can give your complexion the care it needs.

Relaxation is essential for getting a good night’s sleep, and This Works’ pillow spray has been formulated with this in mind. The soothing blend of Lavender, Vetivert and Wild Camomile essential oils will help calm the mind in preparation for a restorative slumber.

It’s blended with nourishing Murumuru Seed and Shea Butters, which have a moisturizing effect you’ll really notice in the morning.

NURSE JAMIE Beauty Bear™ Age Defy Pillow
For less sleep wrinkles and a better sleep in general

My avid readers know that I swear on Nurse Jamie’s uniquely shaped Beauty Bear™ pillow that is designed to support your neck and lumbar muscles, allowing you to sleep more soundly. The satin covering doesn’t absorb like cotton cases – it allows your skin to retain its natural moisture and oils, helping to minimize the appearance and creation of deep-set sleep wrinkles.

Awaken feeling and looking revitalised – this is what we all want. And with the fact that we should all stay home due to the corona virus, we might have the chance to get more sleep. Stay safe!

Nicolas Degennes, who has been at the forefront of technical innovation and design since the launch of the Givenchy beauty line, is the man responsible for some of the Maison’s most iconic products. Unfortunately, he couldn’t join us personally that night as he was not allowed to travel due to the corona virus situation. Nevertheless, I got a great interview with him via mail that you can enjoy reading below.

Nicolas Degennes, Artistic Director for Makeup and Colors at Givenchy

You are at the helmet of Givenchy Beauty since 99… what has changed during the years?
Everything has changed. Competitors, research evolve all the time. There are more new propositions on raw materials. It has changed and is going to change again.

Make-up now and twenty years ago – what are the biggest differences?
Competition, many brands are on the market today comparing to 20 years ago.
This give to the consumer more choice but it can also give confusion. So we need to be more and more straight to the point, especially for a couture brand like ours, it is fundamental to keep our promises.

Got my Givenchy lipstick engraved with my name that night.

5 minutes of make-up … what is a must?
If you had to choose…Eyes or lips?
Always the lips. Complexion in 3 minutes because in 5 we have time to do complexion, lips, and mascara.
But the more important is to apply a mascara and a lipstick.
If we have no time to apply some mascara, I would recommend just clean lashes with water to give them more density but anyway apply a red lipstick. This will give power and strength.

What are the biggest make-up trends at the moment?
The red lipstick is making a strong coming back. It has been always present in the makeup world but it is becoming more and more powerful.

What will be next?
New textures! These textures will make the colors and I know what I am talking about.

How much do fashion and beauty influence each other?
We constantly observe the fashion trends but in the beauty world, we work 3 years in advance so, obviously we have to look upon fashion and let ourselves influenced.
However, we also have to take our own decisions. However, you will notice that the beauty around the skin and the texture have a real influence on fashion.

The biggest faux pas in make-up?
Not to wear any make up at all. This is a big mistake.

Your icon?
Women, all the women!

Best trick you have ever learnt?
Patience.

Thank you, Nicolas, for your insight into the world of Givenchy Beauty!
Sephora loves Givenchy and we love it, too…

Gucci Mascara L’Obscur

With a name selected for its balance of charm and mystery, meaning intensely dark, the new GUCCI L’Obscur mascara is designed to be an object of beauty and desire. Featuring an ultra-rich creamy texture, which comes in one pure intense black shade, the first mascara by Alessandro Michele has a highly comfortable film with a long-wearing finish of up to twelve hours. The packaging couldn’t be prettier: a mirrored gold and pink boudoir-inspired tube.

«I designed L’Obscur mascara for an authentic person who uses makeup to tell their story of freedom, in their way. We called it L’Obscur because this word balances charm and mystery.» – ALESSANDRO MICHELE

The new mascara was already introduced at Gucci’s F/W 2020 show last week and offered its share of sartorial talking points. Michele staged a show in the round, exposing the behind-the-scenes action of the hair and makeup teams and the model dressers at work as they prepared the 60 cast members in their looks. As models were dressed in fuzzy knee-high socks, puffy ruffled lace dresses (dying!), sleek new bags, and preppy skirts, the most noticeable, eye-catching detail were tears and streaks of dark makeup running down her cheeks. The waterproof version is obviously not out yet:-) …
