Mon Guerlain - Perfume Review

Mon Guerlain perfume review


Finally the time has come, Guerlain is launching a complete new fragrance in addition to the Guerlain fragrances.
Meet the new Mon Guerlain.


Mon Guerlain perfume review


I was so lucky that I could go to a launch party organized by Guerlain to introduce this fragrance to beauty consulents.
The party was amazing, but so is this perfume and the story behind it.


Mon Guerlain perfume review

Guerlain Parfumeur, the French beauty brand since 1828, is honored to announce that Angelina Jolie is the icon of its new fragrance for women. 

 The partnership between Angelina and Guerlain was agreed in Cambodia in December 2015, where she was directing her film First They Killed My Father.
Angelina Jolie was hard to convince to do this campaign for Guerlain.
BUT Guerlain wouldn't be Guerlain if they convinced her in a special way.

Angelina had been searching a powder by Guerlain that her mother used to have for quite some time, sadly the powder was discontinued.
Guerlain recreated that powder for Angelina Jolie to bring back her memories and she agreed to do this campaign.
 Jolie has donated her entire salary from the Guerlain campaign to charity.



Mon Guerlain perfume review


Thierry Wasser, Guerlain’s Master Perfumer, drew his inspiration from Angelina Jolie to create a fragrance expressing the idea of the “notes of a woman”: the choices, emotions and dreams that embody modern femininity.

Mon Guerlain is an eau de parfum.
The perfume opens with some notes of Bergamot, that goves a lot of freshness to this perfume.
In Mon Guerlain you can find the freshness of Carla lavender, an exceptional variety grown in Provence, provides a contract with the voluptuousness of Sambac Jasmine from India.
But also some Australian Sandalwood and sensual Vanilla can be found in this perfume.

Mon Guerlain is an oriental woody fragrance with a touch of freshness.


Mon Guerlain perfume review

Some of you might recognize the shape of the bottle used for Mon Guerlain.
And you're correct.
This bottle was also used with the iconic Guerlain perfume 'Jicky'.
This is the Quadrilobé bottle, a real icon.


When putting the bottle up and staring to the upside, we can recognize a clover.
So this is a gorgeous bottle that just might bring you all the luck you need in life.


Mon Guerlain perfume review

Mon Guerlain will be available in 30 ml, 50 ml and 100 ml.
In addition to this line there will be a shower gel and a bodylotion with the Mon Guerlain fragrance as well.


Mon Guerlain can be found in stores from March 1st 2017.
Are you ready to discover this new Guerlain fragrance?

Collistar Natura DIY treatment

Collistar natura diy mask

Did you ever dream of creating your own custom skincare?
Making your own scrub, mask, personal daycream or a face pack?


We all got aware of a hype that's been going on quite a while now: Do It Yourself, or DIY.
Collistar, a Italian brand that makes everything you can use on your body (scrubs, body creams, facial skincare, makeup, sun products, shampoo,...), made a DIY mask.
Let's discover this new product!


Collistar natura diy mask


The first thing we notice, is that this product is packed in a large box, well off course it is.
In this box we have our tube of cream that needs to be mixed with other ingredients we have at home.
To mix these ingredients and make your mask, you need a bowl.
And off course Collistar included the bowl as well so this set really is a total package.


Collistar diy mask


Second thing I noticed, this product has green packaging.
Well this product is part of a new line in the Collistar skincare range.
The new line is called Collistar Natura.
A line that is made with all natural ingredients like papaya, litchi or avocado.
In every Collistar Natura product we can also find some Italian Stevia as an ingredient.
Stevia has an hydration, soothing and protection quality.


Collistar diy mask


 Collistar even paid attention to the details, the bowl included in the packaging is not just any bowl.
It is a genuine Collistar bowl.
How cute!

The cream in the tube itself can be used as a daycream, it has a moisturizing effect that will make your skin appear younger and fresher.
It is more an every day treatment, 
but by mixing it with other ingredients you can make a mask out of it.
Let's discover together the different ingredients I have tried out.


Collistar diy mask


First of all,
You can mix this cream with some lemon and its juice off course.
By mixing these ingredients together you create a purifying face pack.

I have to admit, when putting this on my face it itched a lot so I had to take it off.
I guess I am not used to these kind of packings.
But it might work for you.


Collistar diy mask


You can also use some honey to mix with the cream of this tube.
When mixing these ingredients together, you create a revitalizing mask.

First I thought this would be a sticky creation, but I was wrong.
WHen applying it to my face it felt so good!
I love this combination of ingredients.


Collistar diy mask


You can also mix this cream with some yoghurt.
When mixing these ingredients you create a brightening treatment.
I guess this combination could work but I hate the smell of yoghurt so this is a no-go for me.


Collistar diy mask


You can also mix the cream with some sugar.
To be clear, you have to use loose suger and not the lump ones.
But I thought this was prettier for the picture.

When mixing it with suger you create a polishing scrub.
This was absolutely amazing, my skin felt so soft after applying this scrub.


Collistar diy mask


Last of all, you can mix the Collistar cream with some olive oil.
By combining these two star ingredients, you create a super nourishing treatment.
I liked this mixture a lot and my dry skin really felt nourished.


Am I a fan of this product?
It is great when you have some free time and want to take some me-time.
 It is very easy to use and almost every ingredient you can mix the cream with is an ingredient you have in your kitchen.

This 'DIY' treatment by Collistar is available from March 2017.



Collistar Transforming Essential Cream - € 36,00





What do you think about a DIY treatment?
Is it a product you would use yourself?

Lancome - La rose à Poudrer



Lancome La rose à Poudrer


It was launched as THE makeup musthave of 2017, and the year just started!
 But when I saw this product, I knew I had to have it.
Meet the limited edition Lancome La Blush à Poudrer.


Lancome La rose à Poudrer


This is not a review of this product, because there are plenty reviews on this highlighter/blush to be found on the net.
But this is just a post to show you this pretty thing I got myself.
I am so in love!


Lancome La rose à Poudrer


The packaging disappointed me a little, the box really looks so cheap.
It feels very light and is just made in cardboard.


Lancome La rose à Poudrer


But then, when you open the cheap box.. wooaaaaw!
Such an amazing flower with the blush/highlighting powder all over it.
It is pretty on a picture, but imagine yourself holding this pretty lady in your hands and seeing it in real life.
I almost felt the happy tears coming! :)


Lancome La rose à Poudrer


I really am so happy with this purchase.
Normally this product could be bought for €75,00.
I went with my boyfriend on a citytrip in Barcelona so I started searching this product everywhere.
But I didn't got lucky.


Lancome La rose à Poudrer

After searching every El Corte Inglés and searching the entire net,
 I had no choice but to buy it on Ebay.
And yes, I also had to pay more because sellers are taking advantage of my beauty weakness and since this is a limted edition product the prices are way too high.
But I just had to have this, so I bought a present for myself.

I just checked Ebay for you, my readers, and the prices vary a lot.
Some sellers offer this product for €90,00 and others are selling it for €150,00.
Please do some research before buying it impulsively and take the best offer!

Lancome La rose à Poudrer


In the picture above you can see a swatch of the Lancome La rose à poudrer.
The pay off isn't great.

Is this product worth €75,00 or more?
When you buy it for the blush/highlight itself, no it is not worth its price.
When you buy it for beauty of it, yes it is soooo worth its price!

So you kinda need to make up your own mind of you want to spend so much money on a pretty product knowing the quality isn't great.
I am happy I got myself this product and it will absolutely take its place on my 'showcase shelf'.




Would you spend €75,00 (or more) on this product?

Armani Code Homme Colonia Review

Armani Code Colonia review

We all know Armani Code and probably Armani Code Profumo, 
perfumes that are made to seduce women and add some mystery to your outfit.

But what do you wear the day after or when you allready seduced your lady?
Meet the new Armani Code Colonia.
The perfect gift for Valentine's day.


Armani Code Colonia review

The Armani Code bottle is inspired on the smokings deigned by Giorgio Armani, 
The 'Cumberband' used in the bottle refers to Hollywood, men used to wear it with their smokings so this bottle inspired on a smoking also needed to have a Cumberband.

I absolutely love the simplicity of this bottle and the story behind it.


Armani Code Colonia review


The ingredients used in this perfume are lavender, bergamot and like in every Armani Code perfume some tonka bean in the base of the perfume.
The top notes of Armani Code Colonia are enhanced for even more freshness.
The aromatic heart of this perfume is sparkling and remaining because of the use of fresh herbs.
And the wood notes in this perfume are fresher, lighter and more vibrant.

This perfume is relaxed, cool and charming.

This Armani Code Colonia is a really fresh perfume (because of the bergamot) with a little twist.
I absolutely love this scent and I will make my boyfriend use it.



Armani Code Colonia 75 ml - € 75,00



What do you think about this perfume?
Have you tried any of the other Armani Code fragrances?
