Savue Beauty - Kester Black's nail polish Review

Posted on 22 settembre 2016


The beautiful box from Savue Beauty!

Hi there!

I have recently decided to choose only natural products for my skincare and today I want to talk about a website where you can find amazing natural and organic skincare / makeup products from different brands: Savue Beauty
They are based in Berlin-Germany but ship worldwide!

Here are the values Savue Beauty believes in:


We believe that beauty is reflected in love and care for our souls, bodies and nature.
 We believe in responsible luxury, in beauty products that feel good, have a natural effect and  represent the urban spirit of the time.”

I have recently had the occasion to try the Kerster Black nail polish, one of the make up items available on their website, and here below I share with you my opinions about this product.

Kester Black's nail polishes are made in Australia. Each bottle contains 15 ml of nail polish and on Savue Beauty you can choose between 47 trendy colours!

I choose the colour "Cherry Pie", a bright red colour perfect for every season. 


This is a beautiful and very special nail polish because:


♡ It's free from Toluene, DBD, Camphor, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Ethyl Tosylamide, Triphenyl Phosphate and Xylene.

♡ It's cruelty free 🐇🐰

♡ Vegan ✅

♡ Water permable and breathable 💧

I was so pleased to discover that one coat was enough for a perfect finish! Of course, if you apply a second layer, the result will be even more salon-like but if you're leading a busy life like me, you can definetely apply one coat.
The dying time is very fast and I really appreciate this aspect as well ;)
Last but not least, it lasted for almost a week with very little chipping!
I didn't apply a top coat in order to test the  resistance of the nail polish and I was very surprised to notice that after 5 days only the shiny had gone and, as you can see in the last pic, there was very little chipping on the free edge of the nails.

Vote: 10/10! I definetely recommend you this nail polish. 

Shipping from Savue Beauty was very fast. As you can see in the first pic, the box you receive for your order is very beautiful and the quote "Kiss me, I am all organic" is simply great! ;)

Use my discount code "FRANCESCA" for a 10% off on your order at Savue Beauty!

One coat! Super shiny and full coverage ;)
5 days: Very little chipping on the free edge of the nails

PRTTY PEAUSHUN - How to enhance your Summer tan!

Posted on 25 agosto 2016

Hi!

Today I want to share with you my opinions about a product I am totally in love with:

PRTTY PEAUSHUN Skin Tight Body Lotion!

I had read many enthusiast reviews about this product which is loved by many celebs such as Rihanna, Gwyneth Paltrow, Tracy Anderson, Cate Blachett and yes, it definetely conquered my heart and my skin too ;)



DECRIPTION:
PRTTY PEAUSHUN is a Skin Tight body lotion created by makeup artist Bethany Karlyn.
Technically it's a cream but when you try it on you realize that is more than that, it's Photoshop in a pouch, the Instagram filter you have always dreamed for!;)
The micro light-reflecting particles in its forula blur away imperfections such as cellulite, stretch marks and varicose veins!  Its botanical formula is infused with minerals which give your skin a natural, stunning glow and, what's more, it minimizes bruising and soothes sore muscles. 
Last but not least, its natural scent acts as a natural insect repellent!

SIZES & SHADES:
PRTTY PEAUSHUN comes in two sizes: a small one (89ml) and a bigger one (286ml) both are compact and you can put it in your luggage or in your bag.
It comes in 5 shades: PLAIN - a mix of natural nourishing ingredients but no mineral glow
LIGH - MEDIUM - DARK - DEEP DARK -the same formula of the PLAIN version plus subtle light reflecting minerals which give a sheer flattering glow.


MY EXPERIENCE:
This Summer I managed to achieve an enviable tan and PRTTY PEAUSHUN helped me make it even more glowy! I applied it in the evening before going out and I received many compliments because my skin (especially my legs) looked airbrushed and glowy!
I used it on my body and on my face too - in this case I mixed it with a small amount of BB Cream to correct my imperfections and make my face more radiant!
I haven't tried it on my hair yet but this week I'll definetely try this option too and I'll you the result on my Instagram ;)

MY SUGGESTIONS:
If you are enthusiast about your Summer tan I definetely recommend you to give this product a try ;) In case you don't finish the product within the Summer you don't need to worry because the light colour it leaves on the skin is perfect for every season! Applied before wearing a sexy dress it will give you a nice glow in just few seconds! PRTTY PEAUSHUN is not a self tan and once dried it doesn't stain your clothes so I am sure you will love it and you will use it all year long ;)

WHERE TO BUY IT:
If you live in the United State you can buy PRTTY PEAUSHUN on its official website,
If you live in Europe I definetely recommend you to buy it at Amazingy.com - they offer and eccellent service and a fast delivery!

Holidays in Sardinia

Posted on 10 agosto 2016

Hi there!

It's been a long time since my last post but I am back with a new one about the amazing week I spent in Alghero, Sardinia!

Sardinia is an island in the South of Italy and it has some of the most beautiful beaches of the Mediterranean gulf.

During my staying I managed to visit the majority of the beaches recommended by local people: Stintino, Le Bombarde, Lazzaretto, Mugoni, Maria Pia and Lido.
The beaches have an amazing  smooth and fine sand and the water is very warm and its color is indescribable ;)

Local people are very kind and the food is very tasty! Among the typical foods I recommend you to try porceddu (roasted sucking piglet), seafood starters and pecorino cheese!

Here are some of the pics I took during the holidays, I hope you like it!

Review "Melted" liquid lipstick by Too Faced

Posted on 15 giugno 2016

Buonasera! 

Eccomi dopo tanto con un nuovo post! ;)
Oggi condivido con voi le mie opinioni sul rossetto liquido "Melted" tonalità "Peony" di Too Faced. Ho ricevuto questo campione contenente 5ml di prodotto grazie al sito BeautyTester.it ma il formato vendita contiene 11 ml di prodotto e ha un costo di 21 euro.

Il campione si presenta in un coloratissimo astuccio in cui sono riportate le seguenti info:
  • Colorazione (nel mio caso “Peony”)
  • PAO (12 mesi)
  • INCI
  • Quantità prodotto contenuto
  • Breve descrizione dell’innovativo applicatore e della tecnologia sviluppata da Too Faced per creare un rossetto liquido.

Di seguito la descrizione della linea “Melted” sul sito Sephora :
Con Melted, Too Faced ha ideato una soluzione rivoluzionaria per conservare il rossetto allo stato liquido, conservando ai massimi livelli l’intensità, i pigmenti e la brillantezza e offrendo al contempo una texture morbida e soffice, gradevole sulla pelle


La colorazione “Peony” è un rosa pieno molto bello. Con una passata si ottiene una colorazione molto leggera, quasi un gloss, mentre è necessario ripassare il colore un paio di volte per ottenere un colore pieno, uniforme e vibrante.
L’applicatore a spugnetta è molto pratico anche per ritocchi veloci quando si è fuori casa. Per far fuoriuscire il prodotto è necessario premere leggermente il tubetto e il colore esce direttamente nell’applicatore. Ho apprezzato molto questo sistema perchè molto utile per chi è sempre di corsa come me ðŸ˜‰
Per quanto riguarda la durata non sono pienamente soddisfatta. Il prodotto dopo circa un’ora (senza mangiare o bere) fa seccare le labbra e si insinua nelle pieghette creando un effetto esteticamente non bello e una sensazione, per chi lo indossa, non molto piacevole (vedi immagine sotto). Mangiando o bevendo inoltre il prodotto tende a trasferirsi ed è necessario riapplicarlo.







Ho letto diverse opinioni su questi rossetti liquidi sul web e ho notato che il "Peony" è il rossetto che più tende a seccare le labbra tra tutte le 18 tonalità di colore disponibili.
Nel complesso è un rossetto che mi piace soprattutto per la sua praticità e anche se la durata non è estrema ha un’applicazione talmente semplice e veloce che il ritocco non pesa. Per il prezzo che ha comunque, non credo che lo riacquisterò.

Boho by the Beach - Festival Season Inspiration

Posted on 11 aprile 2016


Hi! It's been a while since my last post but I'm back with a new one.

Festival Season is just around the corner and today I want to show you the amazing boho jewellery by Makana Makai!

"Founded in Summer 2015, "MAKANA" means "gift" & "MAKAI" means "By the sea/seaward" so together they bring you "GIFTS BY THE SEA".
 Makai's creations embody pure bohemian freedom & wanderlust"

Unfortunately I won't go to any  Music Festival this year (I would follow Coachella on YouTube ;(!) but If I had had the occasion I would have definetely wore a soft Kafkano or a simple tank top + denim vest and shorts.

I would also had no doubts about the accessories ;) Makai's jewels are perfect to complete the boho look!


P.S. All of their jewellery comes gift wrapped in our 100% recycled wrapping!

They do love nature and actually contribute to respect it!

JORD Wood Watches Fieldcrest series in Zebrawood & Maple - REVIEW!

Posted on 29 dicembre 2015

Hi everyone!

It's been a while since my last post but it's been a very busy period and writing here on the blog wasn't as quick as posting on Instagram and Facebook (socials on which I have been more active) however, I came back to write and share with you my last post of the year ;) a review of the amazing Fieldcrest "Zebrawood & Maple" wood watch I received from JORD!



JORD Wood Watches
Fieldcrest Series (Zebrawood & Maple) - 129 $
JORD is a brand based in the U.S.,


 "... focused on creating timepieces that are modeled after a modern lifestyle. We value sutainability, efficiency and experiental living. We make our watches for people who don't just have somewhere to be, they have somewhere to go. JORD is run by artists, designers, marketers and minders. We spend our days creating, considering, arguing adn hopefully agreeing. Then we'll scrap it all for the joy of starting new. We have fun is our journey" (Source: www.woodwatches.com)


The models available on JORD's website are many and each timepiece is unique not only because of the excellent design but also because of the grain pattern which is different on each piece.



The one I received is the JORD Fieldcrest Series in "Zebrawood & Maple", a very easy-to- wear and lovely model which is also available in Green Sandalwood, Dark Sandalwood and Maple.

I must say I don't wear watches very often because I tend to use my smartphone but what I've been able to notice from the very few minutes I have been wearing my JORD woodwatch is that it's extremely lightweight and very versatile: you can easily wear it from day to night!

The first thing that surprised me when opening the box the woodwatch came with was the extreme care for details JORD dedicates not only to the watches but also to packaging: the watch comes in a wood box with the JORD logo on top and on the front low side and once opened with a gentle slide movement, the watch appears wrapped around a nice pillow. A wood medal with the letter "J" is tied to a link and can be easily removed.
Inside the box you will also fin a black soft cleaning cloth, extra clasps and the warranty card.

The stainless-steel butterfly clasp is easy to manage, you just need to fold the wood together over the clasp and press down to snap it shut and there are two push buttons on each side of the clasp that you push to release when you wish to take the watch off. Easier done than said! ;)



The Fieldcrest series is unisex and as each woodwatch from the JORD collection, you can communicate the measure of your wrist when buying your timepiece in order to have it custom fit!

Here are some detailed information anout the Fieldcrest series features:


- Scratch-resistant mineral glass

- Deployment buckle with push buttons
- Case width: 39 mm
- Case thickness: 11 mm
- Lug ends: 49 mm
- Band thickness: 20 mm
- Band length: 195 mm


The watches are splash-proof but should not be submerged in water as JORD explains in the "Finish & Care" section which appears in the website, just below the description of the Fieldcrest features.

Maintenance of the delicate wood grain is best achieved with rubbing the strap with some lemon or orange oil applied to a soft cotton clotch. The FAO section on the JORD website also advises that wood can develop a natural patina over time so you can choose to coat it with beeswax, butcher block oil or walnut oil to mantain the original finish. As you can see, despite the fact wood is a "living" material you don't need to pay extreme attention to your time piece.

As you can see, despite the fact wood is a "living" material you

don't need to dedicate extreme attention to your timepiece.



Christmas is over but if you have forgotten someone important, a JORD woodwatch might be a great way to make up for it!

Worldwide shipping is always included in the price of the watch! ;)
