Skincare haul

I had to stock on on some of my favourite products, basics and also try new ones.

  • For all you greek girls out there, don't you just LOVE the Apivita face masks? I am addicted, I admit. I got the apricot scrub and the papaya peel off mask which i both use every 2 weeks. Bonus, in some pharmacies you get a free undereye mask with rose for 2 purchases.
  • Nuxe- Reve de miel lip balm in a jar. First time i use this, i like it...the scent is refreshing but it's matte on the lips, no cute glossy effect. So I use it before bedtime.
  • I am really stocked to try the Nuxe teint eclat prodigieux, tinted moisturizer I got some samples from. I hope this will not irritate my skin, since it's heavily fragranced.
  • Avene- cleanance face mask- Great for oily skin. A staple for me.
  • Darphin- Gel lissant defatigant yeux. First time trying this product, we will see how it goes...I am on the haunt for the perfect eye cream. I was stuck between Liercac, Neostrata, Avene and this one. I will report back! (I have undereye puffiness :-( )
  • Vichy Normaderm face wash. I was out of my Apivita one ( for oily skin) which i quite liked, but i wanted to try something new. I will report back! 
  • Avene- thermal water. I use this every single day, when i wash my face, after the gym, when i want to feel refreshed, after shaving...but never to set my makeup. It's water, means it will dissolve it. I love it as it soothes the skin. It's a must for me.
What skincare items are your staples and what is your favourite eye cream?


  1. Yes, absolutely yes! I'm such a huge fan of the Apivita masks, I'm currently using the Seaweed peel-off mask, isn't it so fun when you peel it off from your face? hehe
    Also, I'm not liking high-gloss lip balms, so I think I'm gonna love this Nuxe lip balm! xx

  2. @cbsg5861- It's so funny taking it off indeed, I feel like i'm in Mission Impossible hehe! Do you use the whole bag or have you ever tried using half of it?
    Yes, this lip balm is a cult product, at first i was disappointed my lips weren't glossy, but now i am kinda digging it. Plus the scent is so refreshing.

  3. Λατρεύω τις μάσκες της Apivita!
    Ειδικά αυτή με άργιλο και προπόλη...
    (βγαίνει σε σωληνάριο και είναι πιο οικονομική από το να αγοράζεις τις μεμονομένες)

    Touch Of Rouge

  4. YES! Love the face masks too. I need to get one of those peel of ones! xx

    1. I can send you some if you like! Just email me :o)
