It’s Called Beauty – Thawas Mini Pocket

image

image

These Thawas Mini Pocket matches are originally an old remedy for cuts and nicks for men while shaving. And they work great for that.

BUT, as they are hypoallergenic, antiseptic and antihemorrhagic and were the only thing I had on a trip where I woke up with a huge pimple, I tried them on it.

And it worked! Really well!

Now they are the only thing I use whenever a pimple comes to visit :-/

They are disposable, so very hygienic too, and very cheap. (You can find them at drugstores, pharmacies or on Amazon)

Just wet the match a little bit, apply on the spot and that’s it :) The effect it has is it dries the pimple and resorbs it. and it’s quick !

You’re welcome ;)

Love,

B.

Estes fósforos Thawas Mini Pocket são normalmente usados para curar cortes pequenos ao fazer a barba. E funcionam muito bem para isso.

MAS, como são hipoalergenicos, antisepticos e anti-hemorrágicos e eram a única coisa que tinha á mão durante uma viagem na qual me apareceu uma borbulha enorme, decidi experimentá-los para ver se ajudavam.

E funcionou! Perfeitamente!

São agora a unica coisa que uso quando aparece uma borbulha :-/

São descartáveis por isso higiênicos, pequenos para levar sempre em viagem, e baratos. (Encontram se á venda em para-farmacias, farmácias ou no Amazon.)

Basta humidificar a pontinha e aplicar na borbulha que vai secar e ser reabsorbida num instante :)

Love,

IT’S CALLED BEAUTY – Summer Tones

image

I normally wear little to no make up during summer time. Anyways, when I do wear some make up, I like it to be very light and smooth. Something that makes your skin glow but doesn’t look or feel like make up.

I found the perfect combo for this summer :

“LES BEIGES” by Chanel

****

Costumo usar pouca ou nenhuma maquilhagem no verão. Se usar, gosto que seja uma coisa muito leve, que dê brilho á pele sem ficar carregado, quase um aspecto “no make-up”.

Encontrei os produtos perfeitos para este verão :

“LES BEIGES” da Chanel

image

I start with the YSL “Touche éclat” concealer, a classic I wear all year long

Then I smoothe the skin with the Les Beiges foundation (I use nº30). A very light and peachy foundation that blends in perfectly.

And on top of that I wear the Healthy Glow multi Color powder.The white powder (On top) I use as a primer eye shadow, then I apply a little bit of the Pink/Peach combo. For the cheeks and focal points (Nose, forehead) I use the Peach tone, to give a more natural look.

Then a little bit of mascara, here I used the “They’re Real!” by Benefit, a little Rouge Coco Baume on the lips (No Color, just Hydration) and that’s it! 

A healthy glow without the make up look!

Have a Glowy summer :))))

Love,

B.

Começo com o “Touche éclat” da YSL, um clássico que uso o ano todo.

Depois, para uniformizar uso a base “Les beiges”, escolhi o 30 para o meu tom de pele. É uma base muito suave e fininha que se aplica com muita facilidade. Uma vez aplicada, tem um tom pêssego muito natural.

Por cima disso uso o pó Healthy Glow multi Color. O Tom de cima, branco, uso como base nas pálpebras e aplico de seguida um pouco dos tons Rosa/Pêssego. Para maçãs do rosto e pontos de luz (Nariz, testa) uso mais o pêssego para um resultado mais natural.

Depois, um pouco de máscara de pestanas, aqui usei a “They’re Real!” da Benefit, um pouco de hidratante e brilho nos lábios ( Rouge Coco Baume, Chanel) e já está!

Um look saudável, sem ar “pesado” de maquilhagem :)

Tenham um verão maravilhoso :))))

Love,

IT’S CALLED BEAUTY – Hair products – Bumble & Bumble

Finally Bumble and Bumble has arrived to Europe!!!!
This Estée Lauder brand got more visibility due to their Surf spray a few years ago.
I had tried a lot of their products before and loved everything. The Surf Spray, which needs no presentation, is amaaaazing! (A post on that one very soon).

And these are no exception :
BB Mending Shampoo and Conditioner, for the (truly) damaged hair.
Not much to say about these except I was a bun adept for the first half of summer and now, after a month of using these I am finally wearing my hair down.
After the Ombré experience (which I loved, but my hair…Not so
Much) a straightening and the sun, my split ends need more than this for sure (Maybe a Keratine treatment) but this was a good start.

So there you go… Head to Sephora to check out the BB products, they have a lot of them, for every type of hair and at affordable prices.

Love,

B.

Their products are sold in most Sephora’s or at Colette in Paris.

……….

Finalmente a Bumble & Bumble chegou á Europa!
Esta marca que pertence á Estée Lauder ganhou mais visibilidade á uns tempos graças ao Surf spray que é um produto maravilhosooooooo! ( Um post sobre isso em breve).
Já tinha experimentado vários produtos da marca e gostei de todos.

Estes não são excepção :
Shampoo e condicionador da gama BB Mending para cabelos (muito) danificados.
Não há muito para dizer sobre eles a não ser que passei a primeira metade das minhas férias com o cabelo apanhado e agora já o consigo usar solto :)
Claro que as minhas pontas, depois das madeixas Ombré de um alisamento e de tanto sol vão precisar de muito mais ( Tratamento de Keratina muito provavelmente) mas já foi uma grande ajuda.

Vão até á Sephora espreitar os produtos BB. Têm para tudo, para todo o tipo de cabelos e a preços razoáveis para produtos de qualidade.

Love,

B.

IT’S CALLED BEAUTY – Lierac After sun

I spent a week in Marrakech last month and ended up with a great tan which was a very nice “help” to come back to this “ugh” weather here.

When I came back I went to a pharmacy to look for a great product that would enhance the tan and also make it last longer BUT I really wanted it to penetrate quickly so you aren’t all sticky when getting dressed.

I asked for something like that to the pharmacist (Who was a guy…) and he recommended this one. Lierac Sunific.

First of all, he was a guy, and as we all know they are not the best at giving advice on beauty products. And he was soooo recommending it, (He was all : It’s the best one on the market right now, it smells soooo good, It makes your tan last soooo long, it isn’t sticky at all, bla, bla, bla….) that I was a bit reluctant to buy it. I thought he had some kind of a comission on it or something. Weird.

BUT, let me tell you, the guy knew what he was talking about!

It is in fact not sticky at all, which I love. It smells really, really good, it leaves a little glow on the skin (Which enhances the tan) and it is making it last longer!

I like it so much that I had to share it with you :)

Let me know, if you ever try it….

Love,

B.
