Pai Echium and Argan Gentle Eye Cream Review

Pai Skincare has been on my wishlist for quite a while. Their  products claim to be suitable for people with very sensitive skin, and they are very popular among beauty bloggers, even those who are not particularly concerned with "clean" ingredients.

Hair Care Routine

I keep my hair care routine just as simple as my body care routine that I shared in my last post. For the reference, I have straight to slightly wavy, medium-long hair. It is a bit more on the thin side, and it breaks easily, hence I have a lot of broken hair around my face that looks like baby hair. Most of the time it gets stuck in my glasses :( I can say I am overall happy with my hair, except that being thin and straight, it tends to get a bit flat. I also would enjoy more frequent hair cuts, but I only let one person cut my hair, and he is back in Italy :)

Body Care Routine

I thought I would do something a little different from usual, and share with you my current body care routine. It is very simple and it changes little from time to time, or if there is a new great product or scent. I like to keep it very simple because I found it always better to follow the skincare golden rule of less is more.

John Masters Organics Rose and Apricot Antioxidant Day Cream Review

As the weather recently changed, I was in need of a lighter moisturizer to prepare my skin before makeup. In light of the several good reviews I read, I decided to try this cream from John Masters Organics. Although the website description of the product did not highlight that it is better for normal/dry skin, (as it was instead specified on the packaging) it has actually worked very well for me. For the reference, I have sensitive, normal to combination skin, and I tend to get oily on my forehead and nose.

Monthly Favorites: April

April brought some nice warm and sunny days. Some days, even a bit too warm. I have had to switch a few products from my wintery skincare and makeup rotations, and also pulled my feet out of my socks to wear some sandals :)
