Inlight Face Oil: Review

As someone who has oily skin, there was a time I was kind of afraid even to think of using a skincare product that was oil-based, until I tried the first facial oil 2 years ago and I loved the texture! It is not because the product is an oil texture one that it will leave your skin oily, in fact even if you have oily skin, you can use oil-based products with no problem at all and they can be great for your skin.

So today I’m doing a full review of the InLight Face Oil, a product and brand that I’ve met at the Cosmoprof last year and that I was testing for a couple of months, using it daily during my morning and night routine.

Inlight Face Oil: Review

 

• InLight Face Oil: Review

I’d like to just mention that InLight Beauty is an organic cosmetic brand, and that this Face Oil is 100% organic, meaning that all ingredients present in this product are 100% natural and organic. And I’ve been really enjoying getting to know more natural and organic brands, because I love skincare products and since they are super present in my daily routine, it’s always better to pay attention to what ingredients and chemicals I’m applying to my skin.

So back to the InLight Face Oil: it’s a protective elixir for daily moisturising and it’s recommended for all skin types, including sensitive and/or damaged skin by sun and ageing.

The brand introduces this face oil with the following benefits:

– To help to balance production of skin sebum
– For long lasting moisturising feel
– To create a protective barrier and base for makeup
– To leave your skin feeling velvety soft

After using it for a couple of months, I really feel that my skin feels moisturised and smooth, this oil is not heavy and it didn’t leave my skin feeling oily. I applied it every day morning and night and my skin was never feeling oily because of the product.

I also liked it as a base for my makeup, the foundation apply very easily after this oil.

 

InLight Face Oil Texture

This face oil has a really light texture and it’s easily absorbed by the skin, it doesn’t make your skin look or feel oily and since it’s easily absorbed, it also don’t make your skin feel sticky or anything like it. It’s color is yellow, but it goes clear and transparent when you apply it into your skin.

You just need a few drops to apply this oil to your face and neck, by the way, never forget to apply your skincare in you neck as well! The packaging recommends from 2 to 5 drops for face and neck and that’s really it, you just need a small quantity of product.

You can apply it and after go with any other product that you feel the need to apply, or you can apply your daily sunscreen if it’s in the morning.

I usually apply oily products after I wash my face and apply an eye cream, so the third product will be the skincare oil-based product I’m using at the moment. In the night I do the same thing and sometimes I apply a face exfoliator before applying this oil.

I’ve been really enjoying using oil-based products and I really liked this Face Oil from InLight, for being light textured and actually making my skin smooth and moisturised after every application. Since I tried it for a good couple of months, I can also say that it didn’t leave my skin oilier even when I was applying it on a continuous basis, even on a long period of time.

Compelling Reasons Why Wellness Retreats are Good for Your Skin

Most people make the same mistake by indulging in a holiday that does nothing but make them even more tired. Instead, they should focus on their health and well-being.

Wellness Retreats

The best thing to do is go to a health or wellness retreat that will give your body the necessary relaxation and so much more. It’s an excellent way to give your body that extra boost of energy that will provide enough of a push to feel relief from everyday stress.

Wellness retreats are also excellent to take care of those long-neglected well-being goals. These health retreats keep you active through having fun in a stress-free environment that will reenergize you. Most of them are placed in beautiful surroundings, which can be quite soothing.

Natural wonders, biking trails, and natural thermal springs are just some of the interesting and exciting things you can enjoy.

Enhance your well-being with a wide range of healing and wellness activities. With all that in mind, here are some compelling reasons why wellness retreats are good for your health and skin.

 

• Stress-free environment

Spa & relax

Wellness retreats are mostly located in extremely beautiful surroundings, which is excellent for all those who need to de-stress. These health retreats are good for numerous things, as they provide a stress-free environment that helps beat insomnia, de-stress, eat healthily and get fit, among many other things.

Then, there’s also the benefit for your skin. In natural surroundings, you get a chance to escape all the daily stresses.

In fact, if it’s de-stressing that you need, wellness retreats offer the most excellent destressing methods such as spa treatments, detoxing, and meditation. Take a healing holiday and feel healthy, energized, and refreshed.

 

• Specifically designed wellness events

Premier Dead Sea Mud Mask

Not every wellness retreat is the same. Different retreats offer different events which are intended to provide relaxation and refreshment in exquisite surroundings.

These feel-good treatments offer an excellent way to take care of not only your health and mind but your skin as well. Tanning is fine, but it isn’t so great for your skin, especially if you overdo it.

You can pick specifically designed wellness events that will provide special treatment for your skin. For example, if you’re having trouble with fine lines and wrinkles and you want to do something good for your skin, a facial treatment with the Premier Dead Sea mud mask seems like an excellent way to take care of those dehydrated areas in the skin, as well as prevent the appearance of fine lines.

Picking a wellness event with such treatments will leave your skin beautiful and smooth, as the minerals found in the Dead Sea mud can do wonders for your skin.

• Not all wellness retreat focus on the same thing

There’s a wellness retreat for any taste. In fact, most of these retreats tailor their events and treatments to better suit the needs of their customers.

Whether you’re just looking for a healthy getaway, to lose weight, take care of your digestive problems, solution for your skin condition or just some stress relief, health retreats are the best way to take care of your health and reconnect with nature.

Most people use these retreats to take care of their health problems, as sometimes natural and traditional ways give the best results. People who suffer from any skin condition and are fed up with chemical treatments often turn to natural means.

Well, a wellness retreat that offers an excellent skin treatment with the Dead Sea Minerals might just be what you need to reap some important benefits such as:

  • Removal of the dead skin cells
  • Anti-wrinkle treatment
  • Skin perfecting
  • Age-defying daily skin care routine

If you want to read more about the benefits the Dead Sea minerals provide for those with damaged skin, all the information you need can be found here.

 

• Avoiding bad habits induced by routines

Everybody needs a change from their daily routine, as people are used to bad habits induced by those routines. They easily get absorbed into that bad routine that makes them neglect relaxation and they fail to take some time off to take care of their health.

The truth is, wellness retreats provide life-enhancing experiences. They allow you to break your habits and routine, disconnect from daily stress and just let go of all the pressures you’re used to on a daily basis. This makes you stronger, healthier, happier, and more positive.

 

• A time to focus on you

Wellness center

Most people forget how important it is to focus on themselves and their health. Modern life offers so many distractions but a wellness retreat helps you disconnect and take some time to take care of yourself.

With proper fitness and health professionals at your side, spending some time in a wellness center helps your sleep, skin health, stress relief, anti-aging, detox, weight-loss, and so much more. If you’re interested in giving it a try, pay a visit to Zing Events wellness retreats for the best experience.

Another very important information to adhere to a red hair color is to remember, as in any other hair coloring, your hair will need a lot of care and you’ll need to treat your hair well before, during the process and after the coloring process, to keep your hair healthy and always beautiful.

I classified the pictures of red hair ideas between shades of lighter, brighter and darker hair colors, so you can choose the red hair color that you like best and pick your favourite color for your new hair change.

 

• Red hair color: light shades

Among the shades of light red hair color is the famous “strawberry blonde”, a light reddish-blonde hair color that has been very successful among several celebrities and is a hair color that creates a mixture between a redhead and very delicate blonde hair color.

Another trend among red hair colors and shades is the so-called nude red hair, a redhead tone that is actually created with a certain basis in the person’s natural hair, creating a perfect shade for each skin tone, that’s why it can vary from person to person as it is created according to the natural color of your hair.

Arkana Cannabis Clean Foam Review

Arkana is a polish brand I’ve been really enjoying for skincare and I tried the Arkana Cannabis Clean Foam, so here’s my full review after trying this cleanser foam for a couple os months.

I must confess that the first time I saw this product almost a year ago on the Cosmoprof, I thought that “cannabis” was quite a new thing as an ingredient, then I’ve noticed over the last months a lot of brands launching products using it on their formulation, and it became a trend on skincare lately.

Arkana Cannabis Clean Foam

The Arkana Cannabis Clean Foam contains Hemp (a variety of the cannabis sativa plant) + Poppy oil. The cannabis sativa oil is antioxidant, a super moisturiser, it has calming properties, provides deep hydration and revitalisation for the skin. Therefore, it’s a great ingredient to be part of a skincare product.

So now back to the review of this cleanser foam that I’ve been really liking.

 

• Arkana Cannabis Clean Foam (200ml) Review:

Arkana Cannabis Clean Foam Review

I’m a big fan of foam products to use as a face cleanser, they are my favourite kind of product for washing my face morning and night. So I was happy to try this one.

I’ve been using the Arkana Cannabis Clean Foam over the last months both morning and night, so I could really try and put it to the test. This is a face and body foam, but I’ve been mainly using it on my face, since it is recommended for dysfunctional and irritated skin and face skin is always more sensible.

This product is really gentle and it didn’t cause any irritation on my skin (which is quite sensible) and I also felt it didn’t leave any weird sensation (like those products that make your skin dry and you can feel it after removing the product), it actually leaves my skin feeling clean and soft, even using it twice a day.

 

Arkana Cannabis clean foam

Since I love wearing makeup, my skincare routine is really important and the cleaning and washing steps are always very important for my routine. I usually use a makeup remover and then a facial cleanser to wash my face with, but the Arkana Cannabis Clean Foam claims to remove the makeup too, so, of course, I put it to the test!

And I was so surprised! I actually just decided to try it today, before writing the review (no idea why I haven’t tried it before this way🙈), and I was so surprised how well it removed my makeup: full face (foundation, highlighter, powder, eyeshadow and even my mascara). I washed my face with it, then I did a little test: with a cotton embedded with makeup remover, I checked how my skin was and the cotton went out clean! I can’t believe why I wasn’t just using it before.

Therefore, the final veridic is that I really like this foam cleanser by Arkana: it cleans well, removes makeup and doesn’t leave the skin dry.

Which one were your favorite hair style idea? The first or the second one?

Well, I also have 8 more hairstyle ideas for a party that you can find bellow.

 

If you’re up to a more elaborated hair idea, this one is perfect! This one is such a cute and sweet hairstyle for when you’re feeling more romantic! And the Valentine’s Day is just around the corner.

Cute Hairstyle ideas

Hair by V Hair Dresser

 

If you want a hairstyle idea that will keep all your hair together,  what about a long and full braid? I love wearing it on the side, it makes the look more elegant and lovely! To a very modern touch, just choose a loose braid, like this one:

Hairstyle ideas: long braid

 

Fashion styling tip: wearing your hair on one side is perfect for backless dresses and tops, it creates a very sexy and elegant look. ;)

Manu Luize: braid hairstyle

 

When talking about party hairstyle ideas, it’s impossible not to remember the classic up-do of all time: a bun! This is the perfect hair for outfits that have too many details on the top, like embroidery or when you want to wear long or big earrings, it keeps your hair out of your face creating a whole harmonic look.

Bun: hairstyle ideas

 

If you’re more into a beautiful hairstyle idea with loose hair, the classic curly and voluminous hair could be the perfect choice for your party! To have very shiny curls, don’t forget to add a few drops of the Nature Spell oil after your hair is curled, just like I did in my hair tutorial above.

It makes your hair super shiny and it also looses a bit your curls, so it helps them look more natural and modern.

Curly hair party

 

For a very modern and cool hair idea, a very loose braid is the choice, different of the braid in this blog post, in this one my hair is even looser, making it a very natural and cool hair idea, in a very effortless chic mood.

Braid hairstyle

 

If you want something more simple and easy to do, you can definitely do this hairstyle by yourself in a few minutes! Perfect for a night out or a special dinner, I just did two small braids, one in every side of my hair and left them loose. It gives a special effect of a different hairstyle, but it’s super easy and fast to do, perfect even for the busy days.

Hairstyle ideas with braids

 

Who said boxer braids can’t be classy? Wear them shiny and with your party dress, paired with beautiful accessories and you’re ready even for a party!

Another classic that couldn’t be left out of my 10 hairstyle ideas is the fishtail braid! A more complex and chic way of braiding your hair that can be lovely for a party:

Hair by V Hair Dresser

Needless to say that for a perfect hairstyle for any party or for the daily life, you always need to take good care of your hair. And a shiny hair is synonym of a healthy hair and a great way to take care of it and to leave it moisturised is through hair oils. The 2 in 1 Natural Amazonian Sacha Inchi Oil by Nature Spell has been my hair oil choice over the last weeks since I first tried it.

The Sacha inchi present in this oil can eliminate unwanted dandruff while locking in moisture to prevent split ends in your hair, using it regularly can improve your hair healthy, moisture and shine, and you can notice how your hair is shinning from the first time you try it. I love using this oil when my hair is wet before drying it with a hair dryer, but I also use it on the hair ends after I finish drying my hair or when I use a curling wand.

Esqido Gel Eyeliner Review

If there’s a makeup item that I love is a good eyeliner, I hardly ever leave the house without some eyeliner and today I’m reviewing the Esqido Gel Eyeliner.

Esqido gel eyeliner: Review

I”ve met the brand Esqido a while ago, I had reviewed a pair of false eyelashes from the brand a couple of months ago,  and then they launched a new product, a gel eyeliner that is available in two colours: black and brown. I’ve been trying it over the last weeks and I must start saying that I LOVED the black one!

But let’s get into the details:

 

• Esqido Gel Eyeliner Review:

Esqido gel eyeliner review

 

Both colours are in form of an eyeliner pencil and they are very pigmented on the skin and they both have a great duration on the skin. Even when I washed my hands, the lines stayed still strong on my skin.

They also apply very easily to the skin with a soft texture.

Esqido Gel Eyeliner: Black and Brown

 

The black eyeliner was my favorite between the two gel eyeliners from Esqido, it is very pigmented and the colour isn’t just strong by itself (like when I applied on my hand with no makeup under it), but it’s also very strong on the eyes applied with eyeshadows under it.

You can check on my photo and on its detail that the black eyeliner is very strong and it shows really well over the makeup, applying it only once is already sufficient for a dark and strong colour (I love it!):

Esqido black gel eyeliner review

This black liner had a great duration on my skin, staying on place and strong during the whole day.

 

Esqido gel eyeliner review

Now on to the Esqido brown eyeliner, it also shows a very strong color when applied directly to the skin but when I applied over the makeup, the color wasn’t as strong as it was directly on the skin. This is something that happens with most of my brown eyeliner pencils, so I decided to try to make it work and this is what I found:

If I apply this brown eyeliner pencil before starting the eye makeup, meaning before your eyeshadows, then I go with the shadows as usual even over the liner, and to finish I apply the brown eyeliner again. It’s been working much better than just doing the eye makeup and only after applying the liner, I found it looks stronger this way than if I just apply it later (even when I apply it more than one time after the eyeshadows).

 

Therefore, I’m loving the Esqido black gel eyeliner and I’m using a lot on daily and night makeups! And I also made the brown liner work, making it stronger than most liners I have tired before

Eucerin In-Shower Body Lotion: Review

I love bath products especially if it’s an in-shower body lotion and this is a review of the Eucerin In-Shower Body Lotion skin conditioner for bath. What a big name. But it is nothing more than that super practical product that is a body lotion to be used during the bath.

Hidratante de banho Eucerin (Resenha)

Yes, the name on the product is in Portuguese because I’ve received in Brazil

I find this type of product to be so practical and also very useful, especially in winter, when it gets colder and you can get really lazy with your skin care after the shower, so the good news is that it is a body moisturizer that you apply while you’re in the shower. So, there are no excuses for not applying a moisturizer, you can’t say that it was too cold or it was too much effort, it’s so practical and that’s why I love this kind of product!

I’ve already did other reviews of products from Eucerin here on the blog and I really like the products from this brand and this moisturizer in-shower was not different, so I can already tell you that I’m loving it!

 

Body lotion: Eucerin In-Shower Body Lotion skin conditioner for bath (400ml) – Review

Hidratante corporal Eucerin banho

Starting this review of Eucerin In-Shower Moisturizing Body Lotion for bath (sensitive skin), it is a moisturizer to be applied during your shower, after cleansing the skin. That is, it is a product created specifically for sensitive skin that promises to strengthen the skin’s natural defenses and provide immediate hydration (and everything while you’re still inside of the shower).

An important detail is that after applying this body lotion, you need to rinse it (this would be the only difference between a normal body moisturizer and this one, if the traditional one you apply and leave the product on the skin, but the shower version need to be rinsed after it).

The body moisturizer for bath from Eucerin has 5% Dexpanthenol, but what is it and what is its function?

Dexpanthenol is used in some cosmetics, including some very famous ones, to moisturize the skin (remember Bepantol or see any similarities between the two words? Dexpanthenol is used in it too). What this powerful ingredient does is reduce the loss of skin water, so it prevents dryness and/or peeling of our skin, being a great ingredient in products with hydration function. Because it leaves the skin more hydrated and smoother.

Textura do Eucerin Hidratante para banho

In addition, this body moisturizer Eurcerin In-Shower Body Lotion for Bath is unscented, without dyes and is free of parabens.

The texture of the product is very similar to a traditional moisturizing lotion, it is super easy to apply on the skin during your shower and shortly after when you rinse it from the body, you can already notice that the skin is smoother and smoother.

As it has the function of a body moisturizer, after using this product in your shower, you don’t need to apply another traditional moisturizer, as it has the same function. It can be used daily, as well as other type of moisturizer for the body.

For its practicality, I love body lotions that are in-shower and I really liked this one from Eucerin, it does not have perfume (which is good point for me) and leaves the skin smooth and hydrated.

Where to buy it? Find it here for U$ 7.66.

Esqido false eyelashes: Review

Who doesn’t love a pair of false eyelashes? I definitely do, since it’s such a great way to “open your eyes” and get instant volume and long lashes in a few seconds.

Being a fan of false eyelashes for such a long time, I love wearing them on specials occasions or even just for going out when going for a more glam look. True is I would wear them everyday if needed.

Anyway, I received a pair of false eyelashes from Esqido for the most voluminous and glam look, the pair is called Nebula lash style and it as voluminous as you can go.

 

• Review of Esqido false eyelashes

Esqido false eyelashes review

Let’s start by the packing that’s so beautiful and glam in white and rose gold! The falsies are of a high quality and the lashes are very beautiful.

I also received their ESQIDO eyelash glue, which I’m loving and using all the time to apply all my fake eyelashes! The applicator is great to get the right amount of glue you need to glue your eyelashes in place and it also dries very quickly, so you can apply your falsies in a clean and mess-free way!

 

Now back to my pair of lashes, Nebula false eyelashes are very black and full of volume, it’s definitely not a natural pair, it’s the one you should pick for a full glam makeup look.

Overall as a Esqido false eyelashes review, I really liked the quality of the lashes, they are really well done and beautiful. The glue is also great, it’s easy to apply and it holds the lashes on place.

They also arrived very well packed, which is so important when shopping online.

Prismologie: Shower Gel Bergamot & Citrine (Review)

I love bath products, especially the shower gel kind and with a more luxurious fragrance and texture, so the Prismologie’s shower gel with Bergamot and Citrine is exactly like this!

With minimalist and colorful packaging, Prismologie products, a British brand I met at the Cosmoprof Bologna last year (a huge beauty fair here in Italy), call a lot of attention not only to their design, but also for their quality.

Prismologie Shower gel - Yellow Day

 

• Prismologie: Yellow Day Shower Gel (Bergamot and citrine)

Prismologie Shower Gel: bergamot & citrine

I’m not a big fan of products with strong fragrances, but at the shower, I like a shower gel with a good fragrance, it doesn’t need to leave a strong scent on the skin, but a good smell in the air during the shower.

The fragrances really influence my mood at my shower time and I love products with a nice fragrance and this one with bergamot and citrine from the Prismologie’s Yellow Day line is incredible!

All product lines of the brand have a different color and fragrance and I loved this one! I also tried the pink line, check it out here on my Review of Prismologie’s Hand cream.

 

Prismologie Shower Gel: Bergamot and Citrine

The brand also brings a bit of positivity into our lives, after all, the small details are what make a difference, and this shower gel brings the following text on the packaging: Stand tall. Feel radiant. Spread some sunshine.

This shower gel from Prismologie has a light texture and it’s very pleasant to use during the shower, leaving a delicious fragrance in the bathroom and lightly on the skin.

The skin gets soft and with that velvety touch, but remember that as it’s just a shower gel, it is to clean the skin and does not have the function of a hydrant. Do not forget to use a moisturizer later.

Prismologie Sower Gel Yellow Day (Bergamot & Citrine), U$ 50.

If you also love high-end bath/shower products that bring that different texture, it could be a good choice of shower gel for you to try.

Prismologie is a British brand and you can find it easier in the UK, but you can also find it online, like on the website above.

One of my favorite skincare products at this moment is the Combray Facial Oil (a regenerating face oil) which is a facial oil with only two ingredients and it has made my skin AMAZING! It is an antioxidant and multifunction oil.

 

And if you also have oily skin and you were scared just to read the word oil, wait a minute, because I also have oily/combination skin and the product is recommended for all skin types. Yes, I was also afraid of oils at first, but once you find an interesting product, you understand that even oily skins can use oil products, but attention, just apply the right amount to your skin and choose the right product. Anyway, let’s go back to Combray Facial Oil review. (This is a spontaneous review, I really liked the product, it’s not a sponsored blog post).

Óleo Combray: Review

Combray Facial Oil contains only 2 ingredients and it’ss a multifunctional oil, but what does it promise?

It is an anti-aging treatment, which moisturizes the skin, soothes and regenerates it, and protects the softness of the skin.

I should add that I LOVE skincare products, but I had never been so excited about a single product as I am with this one, since I noticed visible improvements on a kind of a bad skin time I went through a while ago, while it was also very cold here in Milan, anyway, I talk more about my experience bellow.

• Combray Facial Oil: my favorite facial oil

Combray Facial Oil: review

Like I wrote above, the Facial Oil from Combray has several functions and properties in one single product.

You probably noticed in this last photo that the bottle is almost halfway through, so I really try a skincare product for a long time, because generally cosmetics are not products that give you immediate results and according to the brand’s information, I read that better results were visible after one month of using the product, by the time I’m writing this full review, I am already using Combray facial oil for almost 3 months every day, twice a day, and I’m really enjoying it.

Combray Facial Oil is rich in antioxidants and it contains only two (magic) ingredients: grape seed oil and another one called Oxofulleram, which is an antioxidant. The product has no other ingredients, preservatives, coloring or perfume and besides it all, the brand is cruelty free!

• Combray Facial Oil: product’s purposes

  • Anti aging
  • Hydration
  • Calming and regenerating the skin
  • Protect skin against oxidation caused by stress, pollution and inflammation

According to the brand’s website, they have clinical studies that demonstrate high product efficacy in reducing the appearance of free radical damage caused by oxidative stress, aging, sun, air pollution and inflammation.

In fact, you already start to see a difference in your skin in the early days, but of course I went deeper into the use of the product and I waited two months to be able to properly see the effects of the product on my skin and be able to actually review it properly.

 

• Combray Óleo Facial: How to use it

Combray Oil Review

The product should be applied after washing your face, I have been using it both in the morning and at night and since it has several functions, I have been trying an almost minimal daily skincare routine: applying a cleanser gel to wash my face, an eye cream and the Combray facial oil.

Just a few drops for the face and neck, the recommended by the brand is: 6 drops, I think I have a small face or not for having a very dry skin, I often apply only 4 or 5 drops and that’s enough to my face. You should apply the product on the face and massage it with your fingertips, so that the product is better absorbed by your skin.

As you can see by the color of the oil in the photos, it has a dark color and the only care is actually massaging the product so it is well absorbed by the skin (it does not get your skin colored or anything) and take care of waiting a little at night and do not apply and lie on a white pillowcase straight after the application. But the brand itself has the instructions on how to apply the product and which are the movements indicated on the package.

 

• Benefits and my experience with Combray Facial Oil:

Combray Facial Oil (Review)
I started using the Combray Facial Oil at a time when it was very cold here in Milan and my skin, that’s actually a bit oily, was dry and even peeling close to the eye area. In fact I was even afraid to try a new product with the skin like that, but since I had met the brand on Cosmoprof last year (a cosmetics beauty fair that’s very respected worldwide), so I thought it was worth the try, since it has purposes like to moisturize and regenerate the skin.

And it was great, it helped my skin recover very well and in the following days and it also helped to keep it beautiful during the very cold days here, applying the product every day, I had no problem at all in my skin getting dry. It was super soft and hydrated all the time, even when I was in Switzerland and we had negative temperatures such as -6˚.C

I felt that in addition to being softer, my skin looks very moisturized and bright, in fact, I find myself in a great skin moment and I believe that the product also played a part on it. I also try to eat very healthy and, of course, that is something that helps to have healthy and beautiful skin. But with regards to the cold weather, I believe Combray Facial Oil has helped a lot in keeping my skin hydrated.

Facial oil Review: Combray

To summarize: I really liked Combray Skincare Facial Oil because the daily application left my skin looking healthy, soft and moisturized even on the very cold winter days. Plus, it’s a multifunction product that makes it easy for anyone who wants more everyday convenience and I also really enjoyed their travel size packaging, I’ve been using it straight on all my last trips.

The Combray brand is from the Netherlands, but Combray Facial Oil is sold and delivered worldwide by the brand’s website and you can get 20% OFF when you buy with the coupon code: MANU20 (the coupon is valid for only one month, so enjoy it while you can). Website: Combray Skincare
