Eucerin Complete Repair Moisturizing Lotion (Review)

A good body moisturizer is always important in our body care routine and for those of you who have or are facing a very dry skin, I tried the Eucerin Complete Repair Moisturizing Lotion, an intensive moisturizing lotion with 10% urea and I’ve been loving it!

Eucerin Hidratante Complete repair

I have been really liking Eucerin products for a few years now, since some years ago when I first tried a cleanser for rosacea or reddish skin that I really liked. But returning to this moisturizer review, Eucerin’s Complete Repair Moisturizing Lotion is one of those lotions with a more consistent texture and it really moisturize the skin very well, after all, it’s a product to dry skin.

 

• Eucerin Complete Repair Moisturizing Lotion: Review

Eucerin Loção Hidratante Intensiva

The Eucerin Intensive Complete Repair moisturizing Lotion has 10% urea and aquaporin technology, I believe that among the two of them, urea is more famous in general. Urea is a component that can bring the water present inside the blood vessels into the skin cells, meaning that it has a strong hydrating action on our skin and it’s an important ingredient in many body lotions.

But the aquaporin technology was new to me and I went to give it a little research to understand it better. Aquaporins are channels that are on the cell membrane and have the function of driving the water molecules in and out of these structures, as well as blocking the passage of other substances.

Therefore, the use of this technology in cosmetics has the function of activating the production of aquaporins, as a result, they increase irrigation in the skin region and it can improve hydration capacity by up to 50%. That being said, the combination of this technology with urea actually creates a very strong moisturizing product to our skin and the results are visible.

In practice, I found that the intensive moisturizing lotion is really intensive and it’s great for dry skin or for when your skin gets drier during the cold days. After you apply the product, the skin is already soft at the time, of course for long-term results, you need to apply it everyday.

Eucerin Intensive Moisturizing Lotion, U$ 18.06.

On the instructions it says you should apply the product as many times as necessary during the day, as my skin is not usually very dry, but since here in Italy we are in the winter season, my skin ends up getting drier, but still, I applied it only once a day, after a shower. And it was great to my skin.

Another interesting thing about this body moisturizer is that it actually leaves the skin moisturized for long hours, it is not one of those lotions you apply on the skin and shortly after the skin has the same dry texture as before. It actually leaves the skin softer and moisturized for a much longer time.

Pink coat outfit (Popjulia Review)

Think pink! I love a pastel powder pink coat outfit, I couldn’t wait to wear one myself and share it with you. So here’s a ladylike outfit with a pink woolen coat for this fall/winter season.

 

Manu Luize - Pink coat Popjulia

Coat: Popjulia | Eco Leather Skirt: Zara | Boots: Asos | Sunglasses: Adore

Since the powder pink coat is quite cute and very feminine, I styled it with some leather and some studded accessories to create a balance between sweet and cool. Since I usually look younger than I am, at least that’s what people say, a full cute outfit could make me look like a teenager again. lol

So, creating a contrast is always something I like on my outfits.

That’s amazing how a cute piece like this light pink woolen coat can make the whole outfit look more feminine and sweet. Of course, the light pink lace cami top also helped to create that idea in contrast with the edgy accessories.

 

Pink and black leather outfit

This pink coat is from a website called Popjulia, it’s made of wool blend and I must say I’m impressed on how soft it is. You never know when you’re shopping online for the first time on a website, but so far, so good on this one! I also have another coat from the website and I also liked the quality for now (check here my camel coat outfit).

 

So here are more photos and some details of this outfit with a pink coat and of my makeup:

To match the outfit’s style, I braided my whole hair (and also added a hair extension to make it fuller):

And here are my makeup details:

Instead of going for my typical brown eyeshadows like most days I do, I decided to go for a pink look on my makeup as well. So I picked a light pink eyeshadow (metallic) as a base all over my eyelids and a silver one to use on the crease. A black eyeliner pencil and some mascara, of course.

On my lips a nude liquid lipstick to complete this look. I did mentions all the makeup names because I created this look with brazilian products, so I think there’s no point since you probably won’t be able to find it anywhere else than in Brazil.

* I received this coat from the brand, however, the reviews written here are always my actual opinions on my use of the product.


Dermadoctor K P Duty Body Scrub Review

I tried out the Dermadoctor’s body scrub, the K P Duty Body Scrub, do you know when you use a product and you’re all excited and wondering where it’s been all your life? I have been using this body scrub and it was like that, I am loving the product and considering it to be the best body scrub I have ever tried!

Dermadoctor Body Scrub K P Duty

 

I got to know the brand Dermadoctor during the Cosmoprof, it’s an American brand, and I have been trying several products of them and I’m really liking all of them! I will publish a video talking more about them and showing the products I’ve been using soon, so I’ll update the post later, but let’s go back to the review of the body scrub I liked so much!

[To see the video about the launches and products that I met in Cosmoprof here in Italy, check out: Cosmoprof 2017.]

 

• K P Duty Body Scrub from DERMAdoctor (review)

Dermadoctor best body scrub ever!

The K P Duty Body Scrub is a chemical and physical body scrub, it does not only perform an exfoliation through the grains in its texture, but it also works by chemical agents in its formula.

Another difference I saw in this exfoliant and that I had not used a product like that before was the way of using it, it says to apply the product on the dry skin before your shower. I used to use only scrubs that you just apply on the wet skin, and this one really made a difference.

The skin gets SUPER soft!

It is very simple to use: you apply it on your dry skin before your shower and massage it gently, then just rinse during your sure and you’re done! Your skin will look and feel super smooth and soft.

 

Body Scrub Dermadoctor

It has a texture in which you feel and can see the little grains, since they are not so small. You should use this body scrub once or twice a week, according to your skin. I usually use this type of product once a week.

Seriously, I felt in love with this product, I love bath/shower products and body scrubs, but this one has gained a special place in my list of favorite products and I’m already feeling like I need to stock it up for it’s finished. [laughs]

Two other important things about it: it’s a product without parabens and the DERMAdoctor brand is cruelty free. Check out the full list of ingredients at the end of this blog post.

Another thing, it is just a body scrub, it’s not suitable for facial use. Never forget your face skin is always very sensitive and you should use only adequate facial products!

 

• Where to buy the Dermadoctor K P Duty Body Scrub scrub?

Well, the brand is american, so if you live in the USA, lucky you, you can probably find it easily over there. If not, don’t worry, I’ve got you too, I have found a few websites that deliver worldwide as well. ;)

Camel Coat Outfit (PopJulia Review)

A camel coat is one of those basic and neutral pieces that’s so elegant and chic! It’s already a classic and a camel coat can be worn from a day to day outfit to more of a dress up kind of look.

But for today, my choice was to wear my new camel coat on a casual and basic outfit for the day around Milan.

Camel Coat from Popjulia

Camel Coat: Popjulia | Sweater: Asos | Denim pants: Zara | Handbag: Moschino

 

My combination was pretty basic: a pair of jeans, an off-white sweater, the camel coat, a black handbag and nude shoes. It’s a classic combination of colors that will never go out of style and it’s also perfect as a work outfit for this winter.

I’ve been looking for a camel coat lately, so when I was invited by the Popjulia online store to pick some pieces and I saw this coat, I knew it was time to own a brand new camel coat.

A basic outfit can also be stylish and elegant. Talking about basic, this camel coat has a minimal approach and the fabric is very soft, I was impressed by its quality:

I still can’t get over skinny jeans and they are always my go to kind of jeans.

Alberto Zambelli’s new collection was inspired by the Venice in the 1920s and it features a range of colors ranging from neutral tones, like white and black, to shades of precious stones.

The collection features lightweight pieces with fluttering silhouettes for a very light for spring / summer collection.

For an elegant, light and sophisticated summer. Fabrics like silk, chiffon, crepe and organza affirm the lightness of the new collection of Alberto Zambelli for this season.

 

My favorite tone in the collection was this beautiful shade of blue, called blu laguna (blue lagoon in English):

Velvet Dress for the Holidays (Stylewe review)

The holiday season is here! Glam outfits for who loves a glam season and I’m definitely one of them.

And here’s another holiday-season outfit to inspire you, a beautiful dress in black velvet that’s so elegant for the most festive time of the year.

Dress: StyleWe | Belt: Rafaela Mantovani

This dress makes me feel so elegant, in black velvet and with a boat neck, the dress is classy and sophisticated for the holiday season.

But to make it even more festive, I paired this black dress with golden accessories, like a golden pair of shoes and golden jewelry.

Black Velvet Dress

Golden shoes

Since winter it is, wear a big and warm coat over it to keep you warm. Instead of going for the most obvious choice of a black coat, I decided to go to a off white coat, that, by the way, is a very long coat and I love it for the colder days.

Velvet black dress

Because every one who loves a glam outfit should have a little black dress that’s elegant, classy and should I dare to say, fancy. Because you can also look gorgeous even when you go for more affordable brands and I love to mix them to create my outfits. This velvet dress is from a website called Stylewe and I’ve been finding many lovely pieces over there.

This dress is great to value the body’s silhouette, specially if you wear it with a belt in a high waited way.

Party outfit for Holidays' season

For the hair, I decided to go for a braid hairstyle that’s also very elegant:
