Fall's finally here and, like always, I'm all stacked up with my favorite basics. I recently got my hands on these extra pretty cat eye sunnies which I was eyeing on ASOS for quite a while - and yeah I'll get them soon in black also. I was also looking for a new fall outwear that wouldn't break the bank (yeah I'm unhappily lusting over the Burberry version), so I found this simple, basic, fitted trench coat at C&A the other day. You're definitely going to see me wearing it quite often this fall. Other than that, black skinnies and a basic tee and I'm good to go. 

That's pretty much my outfit for lunch on Sunday at Nil, a Sudanese restaurant near by, followed by some coffee and sweats at Cupcake Berlin - they have the most amazing salted caramel brownie and New York Cheesecake. Worth paying a visit! On another note, I was quite absent here due to my laptop finally breaking down, but I'm in the process of getting a new one, quite exciting process I might say and since I'm going for a Mac I have to do my homework before actually buying it. Everything is different!

centrofarm, dermoanaliza, produse de infrumusetare, testare gratuita, farmacii, ce tip de ten am, tratament
Astazi vreau sa va vorbesc despre un subiect drag mie si extrem de important pentru fiecare dintre noi, anume, tenul nostru. Recunosc, si prietenul meu poate confirma, sunt un pic cam prea pasionata de produsele de infrumusetare - pasiunea mea duce usor spre obsesie, si ma documentez mult inainte de a cumpara un produs nou. In ultima perioada m-am intreptat mai mult spre produse organice sau cel putin hipoalergenice si fara parabeni pentru ca sunt fericita posesoare a unui ten sensibil, cu urme de roseata - yep, runs in half of the family.  

Stiu ca multe dintre voi ma urmaresc din Romania deci daca sunteti in Brasov, Bacau, Constanta sau Sibiu (chiar si in trecere) va invit in una din din farmaciile Centrofarm din Galeriile Tom Constanța, City Park Constanța, Shopping City Sibiu, Unirea Brașov sau Arena Bacău pana pe 30 septembrie pentru a putea beneficia gratuit de servicii de consultanta de specialitate si dermoanaliza. Un simplu test (ce dureaza mai putin de 5 minute) iti poate spune tipul de sensibilitate al pielii tale, vei afla daca tenul tau este cu predispozitie alergica sau intolerant la anumite produse, daca are cuperoza sau tendinta de pigmentare neuniforma. In plus, consilierul de specialitate Centrofarm iti va oferi o solutie de ingrijire sau, in functie de rezultatul dermoanalizei, te va indruma catre un cadru medical de specialitate.  

Am vrut foarte mult sa accept provocarea Centrofarm si sa imi pun tenul sub lupa dar pentru ca nu locuiesc in Romania (si pentru ca deja mi-am innebunit dermatologul cu toate testele pe care le-am cerut) m-am gandit ca ar fi o varianta mai buna ca mama mea sa desopere mai multe despre tenul ei. Deci am trimis-o repede in locul meu pentru a afla ce tip de ten are (gradul de hidratare, cantitatea de sebum, fototipul - care reprezintă gradul de pigmentare, sensibilitatea la soare, precum şi gradul de elasticitate) si ce produse ii sunt recomandate. Rezltatele? Ei bine, pentru o cineva in her 50s' mama se bucura de un ten mixt si matur cu o hidratare de 70%, elasticitate de 50% si pigmentare 30% - overall foarte bine. Ii sunt recomandate creme hidratante, ce au un factor de protectie de cel putin 30 si in general seruri pentru ten matur - precum Caudalie Vinexpert (da, amandoua suntem fane Caudalie).

Acum e randul vostru sa descoperiti mai multe despre tenul vostru iar daca achizitionati produse cosmetice in valoare de minim 200 de lei pe acelasi bon, in cadrul campaniei, primiti gratuit un supliment alimentar MaxiLife pentru frumusetea pielii, dintre urmatoarele: Extract de samburi de struguri (28.03 lei); Vitamine și Multiminerale (28 lei); Vitamina C cu beta-caroten (13.23 lei); Omega 3+ (24.29 lei). Va doresc o saptamana minunata (si un ten superb)!

Sadly summer's over so we need that extra hydration to happen fast so today I'm sharing my favorites from August (yep, Fall started here in August) and a few tips on how to stay hydrated and at the end of this post you'll find a quick giveaway to get you started in the cold months to come. So, let's get started!

1. Givenchy Noir Couture Mascara
I'm quite picky when it comes to mascara since I have literally no curl in my lashes and I tend to go with quick dry ones and mostly waterproof. I wanted to give this one a try since I heard so many good things about it (hello "strong curl, infinite length") but I went with the mini version - not quite ready to splurge 30€+ on a mascara that won't work for me. Surprisingly, I'm buying the full size after I'll run out of this one, it's that good. Before I apply my mascara I usually always curl my lashes and I need a mascara that dries quickly and holds them into place for the rest of the day. Two coats of this baby and you can say goodbye to Benefits They're Real mascara (tried it - not for me, too watery). Removing it is no problem also - unlike They're Real.

2&3. Caudalie Vinosource SOS Thirst Quenching Serum and Vinexpert Night Infusion Cream
As you might have guessed from the long names both of them are perfect for the cold weather. I like to extra hydrate my skin so this duo comes in handy. I apply the Vinosource SOS in the morning on clean face, before my moisturizer - just an fyi, it has no parabens&co, and the Vinexpert after I remove my makeup and tone my face right before getting into bed. Both of them are absorbing quickly into the skin, but you can still fill the moisture. Don't forget to drink lots of water in between - having a bottle next to you at all times makes things easier. I honestly find it hard to drink water when I'm not thirsty so I just add some lemon and mint leafs into to make it more interesting.

4. Nivea Daily Essentials Sensitive 3in1 Micellar Cleansing Water
I think this product is quite new (hence the label) and I purchased it recently but so far I'm quite pleased. Formally, the product "Cleanses deeply thanks to its extra effective yet mild cleansing complex, moisturises and refreshes the skin"I do have sensitive skin and works really good on removing face makeup leaving the skin moisturized but on eye makeup I usually have to insist a bit and rub the area. I might just pick another cleanser for eye makeup though.

5. Rose Yogurt - Body Butter
This is definitely my favorite product this month and a gift from my mum's latest visit through Bulgaria (it's made there). First, let's check the active ingredients: 100% natural Rose oil, natural Rose water, yogurt, apricot kernels oil, cocoa butter, jojoba oil, vitamins A and E. I used to get rashes from different ingredients in body creams in the past but with this one, none whatsoever - perfection and, second, the smell is divine. I'm definitely stacking up on some of this for the winter because I found where to buy them online - here.
