beauty post

One of my last year’s resolutions was to get back to writing my blog, and as we can all see, that didn’t happen. But I keep renewing the subscription for this little internet corner of mine, as I am apparently emotionally attached to my social networks, so I have decided to give it another try, once again (eye roll, I know, I know).

As you may know, I am a profound lover of everything aesthetically pleasing, and I tend to photograph things that inspire me. So this time, I’m gonna share some of my favorite beauty products.

Vichy Mineral 89

I do love a good hyelarunic serum, and I tend to purchase either Vichy Mineral 89 or Hada Labo Tokyo Gold Hidrator they go well with any moisturizer and are great primers for any makeup. And they do make your skin look more plump and hydrated.

The star of the show, and my holly grale product, is retinol, for sure. I have tried using the Ordinary one, as many of us did, but then I heard about a cult like favorite retinol called A313 and let me tell you, this thing has transformed my skin more than I have imagined it would. If you would like to read more about this product, from someone that has more expertise in the field than me, here is the blogpost that helped me decide to try it.

In the slideshow you can see how plumpier and healthier my skin looks like after a year of using it (October/April with spf 50, as recommended). And the sun spots I had are a loot less visible. Note that I am not wearing foundation in any of the photos.

And last, but not least, the product that I have been using for a few months but I’m already in love with, Key Molecule Exfoliating Lotion. Key Molecule is a Serbian brand with a less is more approach to beauty, and this lotion is a much cheaper (and in my modest opinion better) alternative to Biologique Recherche P50. Of course, don’t mix it with your retinol, but use it once or twice a week, at night, and your skin will be grateful.
