  1. La Roche Posay Redermic Eye Cream

    My Rating: 

    I generally write reviews about products I like, but I have mixed feelings about this one. I’m not sure why but lately La Roche Posay just doesn’t do it for me anymore.
    At first when I bought the cream, I thought it was pretty good but after using it for almost a month, it did absolutely nothing for me. Worse, each time I used it, it seemed that my eyes were a little drier and more wrinkled :(
    I noticed the side effects during the day when it looked literary like I haven’t slept all night. I tried to “work-around” putting moisturizer over it but no matter how I used it over time it made my eyes look worse.
     

     
    I just came to the conclusion that my skin can not tolerate Vit C eye products; Sadly I was left only with a warm sensation upon application.
    Moreover, this product oxidized: I noticed I suddenly have a slight brown cast under my eye area and on my pillow.
    It has a smooth silicon texture but I can easily feel the alcohol in it which normally I try to avoid in my skincare products. Rubbing alcohol usually creates new blemishes on your skin rather than eliminating old ones.
    Personally, I find Redermic to be too strong and I will not purchase it again.

    PS:Sorry for the lack of posts lately, i was in a no-mood-writing-blockage; but I’m back now!:) XOXO


  2. Hello stranger !

    God, I miss blogging. This is only the third time I’m convincing myself to write a post… :) In my defense, I had a hectic couple of months filled with exams, panic attacks & early morning wake-ups, so my energy level was pretty low. And because I ‘ve lived on coffee and Orangina- eating all the junk food you can find in a vending machine – I’m in a stealth mode, soft recovery process. For all these reasons, this will be a rambling post. About shoes, tv shows and other shallow things…
    Now, I’ve been obsessing over the Ash Trash Biker Boots for a while now, and I’m pretty sure that 2012 will find me lurking the same horrible-depressing stage :( . They retail at a staggering 350 Euros, and though I might find something similar ( *cough *cheaper) elsewhere, I just cannot take my mind/eyes off them. Of course I have a picture in my head with the perfect outfit :

    And since I’m a legit procrastinator I decided to share with you my latest habits:

    * 2 Broke Girl$ :

    Mad props to the writers for bringing forward such a smart and funny script. Beth Behrs (Caroline) is amazing in this, and contrary to all the haters on imdb, I find the show to be refreshing and way better than let’s say New Girl (nominated for the Golden Globes. Like,seriously?! )

      

     *Heart of Dixie.

    It’s the Josh Schwartz formula and Rachel Bilson’s fashion. Let’s start with Schwartz’s writing. He totally gets me. I mean the first season of Gossip Girl, some OC and now Hart  of Dixie. The guy is a genius at developing new TV projects and when he’s on board 100% as a writer/producer, I’m hooked. He has the same effect on me as Aaron Sorkin, which translates to I-will-obsess-religiously-about-the characters, and loving every minute .

    And then, we have Rachel Bilson . She may not be a hell of an actress, and I do admit I often cringe when she’s delivering a line, but the girl knows how to carry an outfit effortless & chic at the same time.

      

      Last but not least, my past 2 months makeup essentials:

    Hope you all have a great week and Happy Holidays everyone!!!! xo
