You are not going to like this, my fellow blogger Siobhán from Beautylymin said.
And as she knows me and my preferences very well, I was inclined to believe her. I did however decide to still test the pixi Glow Mist. Being a blogger does come with certain responsibilities after all!
Imagine how happy I was when I learned that the pixi Glow Mist, famous for giving you a glowy complexion after doing your makeup, was actually supposed to be used in skincare.
Because, let´s face it, I apply a ton of powder every morning to avoid any kind of glow, so putting on some in form of a face mist after carefully blotting down every inch of skin would have annoyed me.
But once my day is done and I am ready to relax, I don´t care if I resemble a grease ball. I´ll oil up and shine in front of my computer screen all night.
I did share my initial thoughts on the pixi Glow Mist in my Winter Evening Skincare Routine here already, but this time I´ll give you the full details.
I like to think that I eat fairly healthy. Yes, I do have a sweet tooth and while having fruits is not an issue, I have to pay attention to not skip my leafy greens too often.
Replacing your carbs for greens isn´t a new trend, and I think everyone has at least tried things like Zoodles once. Admittedly they aren´t as bad as I thought they would be, just add a lot of pasta sauce and heaps of parmesan and you are good to go, but I don´t think I would go any further.
Like: Zoats. Finely grated zucchini in your morning oats.
Just take a moment to let that sink in.
See, if I have oats for breakfast, I already pat myself on the back for not having a pain au chocolat. There is no way I can stomach grating zucchini in the morning oats and topping it with some chia seeds and half an apple.
But you have to get your vitamins in, which is why I reach for my pixi Vitamin Wakeup Mist (*PR-Sample) every morning.
If you have been around for a while, you may remember my utter disappointment after trying a few Caudalie products. Another overhyped French brand I thought to myself, loved for being French and their Instagram worthy floral prints.
Especially the “cult favorite”, the infamous Beauty Elixier (Read my review here) made me almost loose interest completely. But the constant appearance all over the blogosphere and the fact that you can’t do one step when on holiday in France without having it shoved into your face made me weak.
Just one more thing, I said. Just one.
Why I did end up purchasing the biggest size available though will forever remain a mystery. I guess the “sale” sticker had fogged my mind.
So, once again, Caudalie. The Caudalie Grape Water, to be precise. Did that one at last convince me?
Whenever I hear Queen of Hungary, I immediately think of Sissi, the movies. They might not be very popular outside of Germany, but here they were a must see when I was young and without fail are repeated every Christmas.
Now Sissi was technically the empress of Hungary, and her story has nothing to do with Omorovicza, but what can I do? Childhood influences have the better on us for the rest of our lives.
The Queen of Hungary face mist I am talking about today was inspired by a perfume made in the 14th century. For Elisabeth, Queen of Hungary. And if it is fit for a queen, how could I resist? But does it stand the test of modern times? Let´s see.
There are many well-known and, dare I say, hyped brands out there that I have been meaning to try for a while now. I fall for anything that gets a lot of attention on the blogs quite easily and have a obscenely long “wish list” on my Pinterest featuring products that most likely cost more than my annual salary when added up.
Every once in a while I will take the plunge and get some stuff to see for myself what all the fuzz is about.
And every once in a while I am left pretty clueless, wondering: What am I missing?
The last time that happened was with the brand Caudalie. Of course I try different products, as there is no “one size fits all” in skincare, and today I will be showing you the two latest I put to the test. The “Eau de Beauté” facial mist (listed among the “Cult products on the website) and the Instant Foaming Cleanser.
