Garnier-Ambre-Solaire-BB-Cream-Sun-Protection-SPF50-50ml-0083835

Name: BB Face Cream SPF 50
Brand: Garnier
Size: 50ml
Price:  approx. €10 or 6£

Hello people,

Today I want to share with you the review of this Baby Cream from Garnier.
I am a fan of the brand. Their products are really affordable and the quality is amazing! Garnier has been growing a lot and so are the products.

Summer is one of my favourite seasons and the Sun is definitely the main reason.
Although it has many benefits, we can not forget some of its dangers.

So, when it comes to protection, I try to be the strictest person.
I decided to purchase this BB cream that has SFP 50.
At first, I was not really confident… I thought it could leave my skin oily and sticky but I was wrong.

This product is especially for face and neck and the formula blends naturally with our skin tone, it is not greasy, and can be applied easily because it absorbs rapidly. At the same time, it ensures advanced UVA-UVB protection.

I apply it just before sun exposure and re-apply it frequently and generously to maintain protection.
For a better result, I apply after a compact powder to keep everything in order.

Hope you are having an amazing summer,
See you soon,
Rita

Sun protection

wp10_wp1c247167_0f[1]

Hello everyone,
I have been waiting for this for so long, the holiday season is finally here.

Most people love to go to the beach, get a little tanned… Holidays means sunny weather (most of the cases).
However, we should be cautious when it comes to the sun. Although it has many benefits, we can not forget some of its dangers.

It’s easy to think. Most of the time when we go on vacation, we see someone sunburned.
So, I thought it would be great to remember some advice we should keep in mind.

Benefits:
-Boost our immune system
-Improves sleep quality by maintaining our circadian rhythm and leading to the production of melatonin at night
-Initiates the production of vitamin D
-Improve overall health

…but be careful
The effects of a long sunlight exposure can lead to:
Sunburn
The skin becomes red, swollen and a bit painful.

-Sunstroke
The body raises its temperature, we will experience seizure, nausea, restlessness…

sun stroke

-Sun allergies 
Skin becomes itchy, red and with rashes-like pimples.

-Melanomas
Caused by overexposure from the sun. It is a mole-like skin which changes in shape or color after few months or years.

We should always apply sunscreen with SPF 30 or 50 before sun exposure and then at least every 2-3 hours.
Our head and eyes can not be forgotten, we should wear hat and sunglasses.
The peak hours should be avoided.

I hope you are having an amazing vacation!!
See you soon,

with love,

Girl Online #1 – Book Review

girl online

Hello everyone,

Today I want to share with you my review of Girl Online #1, from Zoella Sugg.
I am a big fan of Zoella, I have watched her videos for many years… So when I read she was going to release a book, I got super curious.

This book is about a girl, Penny, that has a blog. She blogs about school dramas, boys and the panic attacks she’s suffered from lately. When things go from bad to worse, her family whisks her away to New York, where she meets the guitar-strumming Noah. Suddenly Penny is falling in love – and capturing every moment of it on her blog.
However, not everything goes well. There are some secrets to discover…

I really liked this book. I started reading it a few months ago, but with college, I let my readings behind. In the right time, I read this book in 2 days. It was insane.

This is a young/adult fiction book. I totally recommend you if you are into these kinds of books.

In meantime, Zoella has already released another 2 books: Girl Online on Tour and Girl Online going solo. I am super excited to read them and find out about the destiny of Penny and Noah.

And about you? What have you been reading?

With love,

Elvive extraordinary oil – coconut

coco

Hello everyone,

Today I want to share with you my latest purchase in hair care. Elvive extraordinary oil-coconut

As you may have heard, coconut oil has several properties. But why is it so good?

Coconut oil is one of the richest sources of saturated fat (90%) This makes it highly resistant to oxidation at high heats.

People use it for all sorts of things. One of them is hair treatment, to reduce protein loss and keep it looking healthy.

Coconut oil’s structure (medium-chain fatty acidcalled lauric acid) allows it to penetrate hair in ways that other oils are not able to, which is why some people notice amazing results relatively quickly when using it.

This specific oil is enriched with Coconut Oil for nourishing nutrition, satin sheen, and perfect flexibility.

I apply it when I straighten my hair to give that extra shine and anti-freeze effect.

It is perfect for normal to dry hair.

What is your favorite hair oil? Have you tried this one yet?

with love,
-Rita

 

Cigarettes After Sex

Hello everyone,

Hope everything is going well.
I am currently in my finals and it has been insane.
Today I thought it would be interesting to share with you one of my favourite songs, my soundtrack to the longest study sessions.
Cigarettes After Sex release a new album and OMG, it is amazing!!!
My sister saw them live and send me a video. It is crazy how similiar is the voice between live and studio version.
The lyrics are masterpieces. Most of them about love and feelings. The way Greg Gonzalez sings is incredible…Super focused and emocional.
And about you? what is your favourite song at the moment?

I wish you have an amazing week,
With love ❤
Rita

13 Reasons Why

It is hard to talk about it.

13 Reasons why was until now the most intense show I have ever watched.

13 tapes about 13 humans that gave Hannah reasons to finish with her own life.
Most of the times, we do not notice how our actions affect other people. From our point of view, it is just a simple attitude, and for another person is the end of the world.
This show made me realise (and that is what hurts the most) is that some actions we take have irreversible effects.

Suicide is not the answer.
Life can be in a  bad moment, but there is always someone ready to help us.

This song is my one of my favourites. It is an icon ❤

With Love,
Rita
