As startling as this may seem coming from a beauty blogger, I am not a fan of salon facials. Don’t get me wrong, I can name a few good ones for those who truly enjoy the facial experience, but I personally can’t stand some stranger’s bare hands rubbing all over my face. It’s just very unsettling to me and I prefer to give myself some much-needed pampering at home. Find out why I am now officially obsessed with the Clarisonic Mia 2 and why you will be, too.

Today is World Water Day and Biotherm is challenging all of us to conserve more water on a regular basis, especially in our beauty routines. I took the challenge myself and here’s how it worked out for me.
The idea is to fill up this bottle and use it for your nightly beauty routine. That means, no running water. You can only use what is in the bottle. I filled it up and was skeptical but here’s how I made it work. I used a cotton pad to wet my face with the water in the bottle. Then I used one more cotton pad with makeup remover to remove dirt and makeup from my face. Once clean, I wet my face with my wash cloth and some water and rinsed.
For brushing my teeth, I used only what was left and still had water to spare! Turns out 500ml is more than enough to get clean and fresh! Will you take the Biotherm challenge for World Water Day?
I know half of you reading (if not more) are not using a serum at night. Shame! If you’re in your mid-twenties or older (yes, I said mid-twenties, not mid-forties), anti-aging is already a concern. You definitely can’t stop the hands of time (boo!) but you can care for your skin as much as possible and keep premature wrinkles at bay longer. Read on to find out why this product is now my go-to.

I’ve been using these awesome new products from Decléor: I’ll start with the Aromessence Ylang Ylang Purifying System ($75). Every morning I apply two drops to my fingertips and gently apply all over my face before the cream.
