this is my new favorite fragrance! B. by Balenciaga Paris created by Alexander Wang and Domitille Bertier from IFF. what a lovely fragrance one for every day including the special days too.
I am so happy to already have this before its in the shop so I can tell you how great it is and that I am more than sure that this will be a big must have fragrance in the future. everytime I am wearing this – and this is almost every second day – I get a compliment on my fragrance followed by the question what it is that I am wearing. I had to give some to my mom as she already loves it too and I got one of these tiny containers where you can fill in the fragrance – these little spray containers come in very handy when you travel with hand luggage. what I find really funny is that the fragrance transforms in two different ways after wearing it on the skin for a moment – either the fresh, green note lingers around or the warm and almost powdery touch stays more present. in my case it was the fresh green part that lasted and with my mom it was the opposite. another thing that I wanna say is even though this parfum is actually created for women it could also be a more unisex fragrance BUT one has to like a quiet dominant floral scent.
head note: soy bean, lilly of the valley
heart note: orris root, cedarwood
base note: musk, cashmerewood

I have a new beauty friend called MIA 2 – I meet her twice a day and she makes my skin feel so clean and soft. MIA 2 is a CLARISONIC facial cleansing brush that can be either used with the refreshing cleanser gel that comes with the product or with any other soap or cleansing gel. the MIA 2 comes in a neat travelling case and I need to charge it once a week.
In the morning I use the MIA 2 in the shower and in the evening I first remove the most of my makeUp with a wipe and then use the MIA 2 over the sink. Its an amazing tool, it cleanses and exfoliates the same time and it tells you when to switch the part of the face.
what does it claim?
– to clean the face 6 time better
– minimizes the pores
– better cleansing than hands alone
– greater absorption of Vitamin C after use
As I have used MIA 2 for the last couple of weeks I can so far tell you that I really like it. I can not see any changes of my pores yet, but maybe this is something that only shows after using it for a couple of months. we will see!
what do I think about BB? Blemish and Balm.. well, in summer they come in handy as I am not a friend of too heavy coverage foundation. lets start from top to bottom!
#Estée Lauder BB Double Wear All-Day Glow SPF 30
#Marionnaud BB 6in1 Perfecting Care (no SPF)
#The Body Shop All-in-One BB Cream (no SPF)
#Clarins BB Skin Perfecting Cream SPF 25
#Estee Lauder BB Clear Difference SPF 35
so which is my favorite and why?
my very favorite BB Cream is the #Estée Lauder BB Double Wear All-Day Glow SPF 30 – as it has enough coverage and SPF and it doesnt have a matte finish. Its a rather new product, so I am sure some of you have not seen or tried it yet. well, do not hesitate, give it a try!
