Monocromo


“You must find the magic that warms your skin in winter, the magic that perceives what cannot be seen, the magic that curls in your gut with fierce power and will not let you give up, no matter how long or cold the days.”
― Mary E. Pearson, Dance of Thieves
Hi Everyone!

Recently I read this quote because I finished that book a few days ago and I feel so comforted that quote because right now I guess each person to different levels is experimenting with high quantities of stress. Right now I am in quarantine my country is in quarantine so is complicated. But I am in better conditions than a lot of people and that makes me feel blessed. Probably you are feeling really anxious right now but If you have food and you are working from home and the most important thing If you are healthy you have more than a lot of people right now. 

I enjoy so much the monochrome photos, all the photos in this post were shot by Rafael Mesa an amazing photographer. If you have some time following me probably some of these photos are familiar to you and that is because these are unpublished monochrome photos. 



I know this is my first post after so many days without publishing nothing but between my bad wifi and I couldn't find inspiration to publishing nothing where I am here. Now I am more a booklover that anything else on this planet. I would like to live just reading forever. Why so serious in the photos? Some people asked me before. Well, my lovelies that is my confident expression most of the time. 

I am a very serious girl who loves books of fantasy. When you are an introvert person like me you can enjoy the insolation and the solitude. My best recommendation is to have a daily routine and turn off social media and obviously find a good hobby. I enjoy besides to read watch movies and tv series. Or you could learn something online like a new language. By the way, If you need to organize your closet or clean your kitchen this is a good time too.


One of the reasons because I enjoy reading is because I can travel when I can´t leave the place where I am. So basically my advice for everyone is to read a good book If you feel that you need to go out. I´ve spent so long of my life reading that for me that is a lifestyle. Probably right now everything looks gray but the thing with everything is that all is cyclic and nothing is forever. Right now are gray and cold days for many people around the globe and I guess in some way this has helped us to feel the echo of other countries and how each action has a repercussion just like the butterfly effect.

I know is not easy, but where are you going to find a way out. I never thought that my post will these photos were my inner thoughts about this situation about yeah that is. 

My best wishes to you~
Stay at home and be healthy πŸ’—


Bye Bye!!

ALL DAY GLOW Calming Balance Gel Cleanser



Hi Everyone!

Wow It has been a long time since I published a post and sincerely I don´t have excuses I´ve been working and life has been happening, of course, I had so many wishes to share this review with you because this has been a product that  I really enjoyed. The cleanser is the product that I change with more frequency, the serums, essences, and toner last me more first because I alternate between brands and products but when I find a good cleanser I use this so much. Obviously, like all the products of skincare I give ti the product over a month to writing my review about that product for having a better response of my skin.

My Type Skin: Sensitive Combination

I decided to start to share my type of skin at the beginning of each post because is important to the reader to know the reason between the picks of my products. I could put this information on my sidebar but some people don´t like to read. So I was looking for a nice cleanser and I found this mild gel cleanser that mentioned has a good pH so I decided to pick this one. This product is not sponsored by the brand or any online website.


Features
A mild, moist, and smooth gel-to-foam cleanser that cleanses the skin without excessive stimulation. The acidulous gel cleanser with a pH level of 5.5 recovers the healthy skin balance and strengthens the skin barrier. Ceramide forms a protective moisture layer on the skin, preventing moisture loss and keeping the skin moist after cleansing.

πŸ’§ Texture and Packaging: The packaging is super simple, first there is the white box with simple white letters but I like that the simplicity of the packaging. The bottle looks translucid and the cleanser is not completely colorless has a subtle yellow tint. The bottle has a nice dispenser super easy to use and that is really good because I´ve using this product over 3 months and this keeps working perfectly. The texture of this cleanser is a gel, this a nice gel that when touching the water transforms in foam and is super gentle.

Conclusions

I decided to change my current cleanser three months ago from COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser to this ALL DAY GLOW Calming Balance Gel Cleanser because I started to notice too much dryness with the COSRX. It was a good cleanser but I keep with this feeling that I needed something more so I started with this one. Just when I received this product I started to use that product that same week which was good for me because I noticed since the first use the difference. 

First I noticed my skin moisturized clean pretty and luminous, and that was a change because that was exactly was I was looking for in a cleanser. I use this product as my second step in the cleansing routine but in the morning I only use one step regularly so I only use this one and this cleanser is the perfect balance for my skin. 

With this I am not saying that the COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser is bad I guess that is nor perfect for all the time. Because like I have sensitive combination skin sometimes my skin is more dry and sensitive and I need something that offers me moisture too. I was researching just a little about the ingredients and I noticed that one of the first ingredients in the list is Chamomilla Recutita Extract that is very well known by the anti-inflammatory properties. Now another very interesting ingredient is the Niacinamide that is one of my favorite ingredients in the world because provides that wonderful luminous effect and sincerely I don´t know the proportions of each ingredient but I guess that even If is a small proportion is good to know that has a good ingredient like that.

I like the aroma because even when this says that doesn´t have any fragrance this smells just like a subtle tangerine to me. But the aroma for me is pleasantbecause I enjoy the subtle citric aroma. For not to make this conclusion longer this cleanser is a good one, provides a good cleansing, moisturizing effect, good acidic pH 5 and I´ve been using for a little more than three months and I have not felt any issue with this cleanser. This is mild and I really enjoy the gel texture, this is a perfect second step.  This has a good quantity of product that is good for those people that use the cleanser every day like me.
