MY NEW SKINCARE ROUTINE WITH MY BLEND

This year my resolution was to take a better care of my skin.. and I am happy to say that is going quite well so far! I believe the right skincare differs from person to person. It’s not an easy job to find the right one for you. When I was asked to test My Blend, I was very intrigued! . .

Besides the skin type, our skin is a reflection of our lifestyle together with all the feeling we come across our busy lives, the commuting to work, the stress, tiredness, but also happiness and relax. As a different approach of many skincare brands, My BlendΒ reflects all the changes we go through every day going beyond the questions of age and skin type.

I did my skin diagnosis online (here) and answered specific questions about my lifestyle, the climatic environment I live in, my food habits, stress level, quality of sleep and more insightful questions about my habits and I received a ultra-personalised skincare line. How cool is that!!

My Blend was created by Dr Olivier Courtin, son of the founder of Clarins, as a perosnalized skincare concept that would enable each skin, regardless of its condition, to recreate an environment that would enhance its regeneration.

Besides the very innovative concept, I really love the sleek packaging and luxury look. Did you ask yourself what are those injections in the images? I am quickly going to explain you how it works! It’s a real-time creation of a unique blend, in case you haven’t seen it in real time on my Instagram stories a few days ago. Once the skin diagnosis selected my day and night creme with the right formula corresponding to my skin profile, I was given 2 boosters blends for each cream. Boosters are pure active ingredients concentrates which meet the specific needs of your skin at a precise stage in your life, according to your lifestyle. Personalisation as its finest!

Finally, what’s a better place to experience the creation of personalised blends than a Spa? For my italian readers and for all of you visiting Italy soon, don’t forget to put in your must-visit-destinations the Spa My Blend by Clarins at The St. Regis in Florence and Gran Melia in Rome! They look paradise!

Last but not least, tonight I am holding a giveaway on my Instagram (here) and it’s super easy to participate! You can win your personalised day cream and two boosters!! Go enter it!!Β

MARIE STELLA MARIS MAGIC

Even before moving to Amsterdam, when we were still living in London, there was no baby Emma and the weekends abroad were happening often.. one weekend strolling around the Amsterdam canals I spotted the Marie-Stella-Maris shop on the Keizersgracht and I literally fell in love with the whole concept.

Absolutely charming!

   

I adore the packaging – black & white hello!! – and it’s not only pretty but also very generous in the size and smells delicious.

Between all the products I tried, my favourite is the Liquid soap No73 Poivre Noir Fraiche. A very original scent made from a mix of essential oils of geranium and black pepper. It fits my busy life as it can be used as both hand and body soap and leaves my skin smooth all day!

Needless to say after trying the products I became even a bigger fan! The sweetest part of the story is that Marie – Stella – Maris cares for water! They believe everyone should have access to clean drinking water. For each product you purchase, Marie-Stella-Maris donates a fix amount towards clean drinking water projects worldwide.
