Eucerin Aquaporin active Light moisturizer review!

Hello my ladies!
Today's post is all dedicated to beauty and skincare! I finally found the time to review my current favourite day cream: Eucerin Aquaporin active Light moisturizer. The story started a while ago. I was reading a magazine and I saw an advertisement of a new Eucerin moisturizer. I read through all the text and I was impressed. This cream works amazingly thanks to a new formula. The aquaporins are proteins (which are in our cells) which allow water to pass and go through all our cells deeply. This cream contains aquaporins and improve the hydration of the skin.

I can tell you, it really does the job. I got the first tube a few months ago, and I finished it up because I loved it so much! It lasts something like 2 months even if it's just 40 ml. A few weeks ago, I repurchased it and it's really worth the price: 14 euros for 40 ml.

There are 2 versions: one for dry skin, and another one which is much lighter for normal to combination skin.
It looks like a gel and it sinks in sooo quickly! I apply it every morning when I go to school and it works amazingly also as a make up base. It's very light scented and smoothes the skin.

I got this at the chemist's because it's only place where I can find it. I know  that Eucerin sells in many countries: here's the link to their website, you will be able to see all the Aquaporin range.

So, I can't recommend it enough!
I really hope this was helpful, have you ever tried Eucerin products? 
Do you recommend any other product?

Hello everyone!

Here I am again and I want to share with you guys my nail choice! Everyone now has started wearing autumn things and I am with them: my nail varnish for today is a really autumn-y colour!

It's a really dark plum shade, almost black. I adore it, it's very elegant and classic. 

The brand is Mavala, but I don't where it comes from. Do you know this brand?
It has a wide range of colours and the quality is really good, all the shades are completely opaque! 

What do you think of my choice? 
What are your autumn nail varnishes?

Outfit of the day #3

Hello everyone!
Today's a quick post: I want to show you what I wore today. I hope this can inspire you!

  Topshop loose-fitting top | H&M necklace | OVS skinny jeans | Market shoes 'Clarks'

I forgot to include my black leather jacket, but don't worry I'll show it in my next outfit because I'm wearing it basically every day! The post will be up very soon!

So, it's a pretty casual look, but I was a bit lazy this morning and I thought that this necklace could make it a lilttle bit more edgy and complete the outfit. 

PS Excuse the quality o the pictures, this will never happen again :(
What do you think? Let me know!

Make up looks #1 Autumn version

Hello girls!
First, I'm sorry for the lack of posts, but school has started and I've been really busy with homework :(
Fortunately, I got the chance to relax and go out, and I thought I'd show you what make up look I'll wear most of the times.
I choose this make up mainly when I'm going out, but when I'm at school I change something: I'll tell you that through the post!

 Here I am! It's quite simple but I think it's nice and quick to do in the mornings when I'm in a hurry.
So basically I decided to define my eyes with a mat brown eyeshadow and as highlight I  used a mat white eyehadow. For the lips, I went for a plum glossy lipstick (which are everywhere right now).
Here you have the list of the products used:

Bourjois Flower perfection foundation in 51
Collection Lasting perfection concealer in 2 Light
Essence Fix and Matte Translucent loose powder
Sephora Blush! in Rose

MAC Swiss chocolate eyeshadow
Mat white eyeshadow from a Nouba palette (do you know this brand?)
Essence Multi action mascara

Kiko Sheer and creamy lipstick duo in 01 (it's really hydrating)

If you don't want to wear a plum-dark lipstick you can add a tinted lip balm to your look to make it easier to wear!

So, that's it! 
I really hope you like it! Tell me what you think in the comments please!

My trip in outfits! #London

Hello ladies!
I realized that my trip to London is completely over and I'm so sad!
Anyway, I'd like to share with you what I wore during my visit to London! Maybe I could give you some ideas! I hope you enjoy!

 For this outfit I chose a Zara dress, I matched it with a flatternig black sweater, a pair of leggings and a vintage leather jacket, a H&M long necklace and big turquoise ring. For me, it was cold enough to wear all these things! Ahah For shoes, I went for a pair of ankle boots, which I got a year ago in Italy.

 As for this outfit, I chose some really comfortable clothes because we went all around London. 
I chose black leggings, a pair of pattern shorts from H&M, a white shirt and the same cozy black sweater.
For shoes, I chose this pair from H&M, which you have seen in my first outfit post (here).

 The third and last day was pretty cold. I went for a pair of skinny jeans, the same H&M shoes as the second outfit, a creamy striped t-shirt from New Look (7.99£!!) and a Mango cozy sweater with pink buttons in the front. My bag is from Camaieu but I 'm not sure if you guys know this French brand .

Oh, I forgot to say that in all the outfits I wore an off-white cotton scarf.
As I said, tihs was a little trip but i thought that it would be interesting for you to see what I wore.
I really hope you liked it, if you have any request, tell me in the comments below!

June to August Favourites!

Hello girls!
This is my first monthly favourites kind of post and I'm having so much fun that I will start doing it regularly!
This is a bit different from the upcoming others because it's a Summer favourites post!
Ok, so now let's get started!

As for make up, recently I've been loving my Naked palette, which came with me during my holidays. This is a multi purpose product for me because I also used the lightest shade as highlighter. It's handy, compact and you can create tonnes of different looks.
Another product I'm obsessed with is my Benefit Creaseless cream eyeshadow in Birthday Suit (full review here): I applied it as a primer and the eyeshadow lasts longer. It's a lovely, taupe-y shade, great for every look.

Lately, I re-discovered my lipsticks and since it was summer I tried my best to use them. My favourites were:
Max factor n°825 Pink brandy, which is a lovely coral. Extremely creamy, moisturizing, and a fabolous colour. Oh, it lasts something like 3-4 hours, then I re-apply it.
The second lipstick is from Kiko (Italian Brand which sells in different countries in Europe) Velvet Mat n° 613, a dark pink with a lot of purple in it. I used it basically every day, when I didn't want to wear too much make up: just this and nothing but mascara on my eyes and I was alright. I think I will keep on using this also in the winter.

 Left: Kiko - 613 Right: Max Factor - 825

As for haircare, Im really into it lately. During summer, my hair were really dry and it wasn't easy to style them.  But something happend: I discovered the John Frieda Frizz Ease Anti crinkling Serum - heat protection formula. I got it at Sephora quite a while ago. You should apply it both to wet hair before drying and to dry hair to smooth and protect them.  This made my hair feel a lot smoother and easier to style. The bad thing about this serum is the ingredient list: it has some silicons, so once I finish this up I won't repurchase it and try different products. What would you suggest? Tell me!

And then, Skincare! In one of my most recent posts (here) I told you that I had bought the Bioderma Solution Micellaire: this is my current make up remover: gentle, fresh, light. This doesn't cause me breakouts or anything like that, great product!

Another product I absolutely love is my Lush toner: Tea tree water. Since I have combination skin this is perfect for me! This is my third bottle and I'm finishing it up! A bottle will last you for three months, it's a never ending toner! Ahahahahah Seriously, it's fantastic, it contains tea tree, grapefruit and juniper. It's light  and refreshing but it doesn't leave your skin dry at all.

 So these were my Summer favourites! They're not many but I really enjoyed using them!

What were your favourites this month? 
Do you have any requests?
Tell me in the comments! :)

I hope you enjoyed this post!

London beauty haul!

Hello everyone!
I'm soooo excited because I've been to London for the weekend and it was so amazing! Seriously, the best city I've ever visited. My brother and I had great time together and we saw many different areas, such as Soho,Chinatown, Kensington, South Bank, Westminster and everything was so beautiful! Seriously, I want to live there, I'm in love with the underground... :)
While I was in Italy I planned where to go shopping and I even asked you in this post what I should get, so let's start with this beauty haul!!

 First, I went to Boots, oh my gosh this is the best store I've ever seen: offers, awesome beauty brands, lovely women ready to help you! I immediately get lost (ahaha) but I asked for help :D I saw Soap & glory and I took the Flake away body scrub (thank you Olivia for your suggestion!), which smells heavenly! 

I started sniffing every product and I fell in love with the Clean on me, this is... fricking amazing! I could not get the full size because of the luggage weight so I took 2 smaller bottles :)

 Oh, let's just stare at it. Isn't it a masterpiece? The Origins stand was gorgeous but I decided to get only this little treasure (Super spot Remover) because it's not cheap at all!!

 And then, here it comes: the concealer everyone talks about and everyone loves. I finally got my hands on the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer and I do not regret. It gives the most flawless finish to my skin!

Bourjois is not available in Italy so I couldn't waste the chance :) I had my eyes on the Flower Perfection foundation for a while and I love it! I immediately used it and... what else can I say, big thumbs up!

 I got the Healthy mix Serum foundation for my mum, because she asked me to get something for her too, so I decided to take this, which promises radiant skin (She loved it, yes!)

 After all these 'goodies', my second stop was The Body shop, it's so cute! The girls are lovely and nice! After staring at all their products, I decided to get the Banana Shampoo and conditioner (which were part of their bestsellers): I can't wait to try them!

It was love at first sniff with this little Mango body lotion, I just couldn't stop myself: 2£, I mean 2£!!!!!

And then the Coconut Body butter, I'm sure you all know this product really well :) It has an amazing, fresh and balanced smell, one of the best ever!

 To style my hair I was used to using the John Frieda Frizz Ease Serum, which was full of chemical ingredients such as Petrolatum and Paraffin. After seeing Essiebutton's post about her hair routine I thought that the Coconut oil hair shine could be a better alternative.

 I wanted to try some skincare too, but I was not sure of what to get so I picked up the Vitamin E kit: I can try basically every product to know if these agree well with my skin :)

 I know, it's early for eye creams but lately I have pretty bad dark circles and my eye contour is really dry so I got this, I will definitely try it out!

 Ta da! This is the king of my purchases! The Real Techniques Core Collection is finally here with me!! Do you remember? I put this in my Desire post (here)! I had to look at 6 Boots stores to find it!!

 This is the mythic Buffing brush.... Speechless! :)

 The detailer brush for concealer and eyes.

 The Pointed foudation brush, interesting!

 The contour brush!

 My last beauty stop was Lush. Since I have this brand in Italy too, I only got the Honey Trap lip balm: 
BEST BALM EVER! I had to repurchase because I ran out of it and it costs less than in Italy!

One little tihing! My London pen! I will use it to remember this unforgettable trip!

So that's it for my beauty haul! I know, I went a bit crazy, but I only got things that I can't find here! :)

My clothing haul will be up really soon!!
Please feel free to ask me any review of these things! I'd love to help you out!

What do you think of the products I got?
I really hope you enjoyed it!
