How Long Should I Use A Skincare Product Before Deciding If It Works Or Not?: Whenever we start using a new skincare product, and especially one that promises miraculous results, we want to see improvements already from the next day. But we have to be realistic. No product can work wonders in such a short time! But how much time should we give a product to assess its efficacy (or lack of it)?

Are You Cool Or Warm? How To Determine Your Skin’s Undertone: We all wanna wear makeup and clothes that makes us look our best. But how do you do that? The first step is to figure out what your skin’s undertone is. Once you know that, you can easily choose the shades that enhance your colouring and avoid those that make you look sick and washed out.

Spotlight On Green Tea: We are all aware of the benefits of drinking green tea. This drink has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antiaging properties and is said to help prevent cancer and tooth decay. Because of all its beneficial properties, Green Tea has become a very popular ingredient in skincare products too, but does it work as well when applied topically on the skin?

Le Vainqueur and L’Imperatrice: We are all acquainted with the story of Napoleon and Josephine, their accomplishments and their fall from power, but what is less known is that this imperial couple left their mark in the history of fragrance too.

What’s The Best Way To Dry Your Hair?: Should you blow dry your hair or is it best to let it air dry? Most people prefer to use a blow dryer because it is more convenient, but fans of air drying avoid that as much as possible, saying it is not healthy for hair. So, what should you do?

    Hi Giorgia! I am especially busy this week so I won’t be commenting daily. I wanted to let you know. I still read your posts, I just don’t write. I’ll write when I have some more time.
    I love the roundup posts because I can see your older posts I wouldn’t have otherwise found.
