Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Lotion

by Elsa Termenon on March 5, 2012

I usually never have problems with my skin aside from dryness in the winter which is quite manageable. But when I got pregnant all these hormones were going completely bananas and I ended up with break outs like I hadn’t seen since my teens! I was devastated because I had no idea how to treat [...]

by Elsa Termenon on June 29, 2011

As I said in this post, I like to keep my make up to a bare minimum in the summer heat. Here are my summer make up favorites! Calvin Klein Sun Drenched (304) Summer Affair Bronzing Powder. I’ve used this one for a few summers now and it gives the perfect matte and sun kissed [...]


When do you feel the most beautiful?

by Elsa Termenon on June 28, 2011

I think most of us are battling some kind of lack of confidence in ourselves and how we look, from time to time, I know I certainly do. But lately I’ve been thinking about in which situations I feel the most beautiful and happy with myself and in which situations I don’t. This is so [...]


Summer Skin Essentials

by Elsa Termenon on June 13, 2011

In the summer I don’t like to wear a lot of make up, especially not foundation and powders. I prefer a light tinted moisturizer with SPF for my daily routine. For years I used Clinique’s City Block sheer oil-free daily face protector with SPF 25 which is very light, evens out the skin tone while [...]

Last week I got my first ever Nars product, any Nars fans out there? I decided to get their lipgloss in the color “orgasm” as it felt like a fresh addition to my make up bag. I mostly have matte lipsticks in bold colors, that’s what I usually prefer. But on hot summer days when [...]


My Number One Body Smoothing Secret

by Elsa Termenon on April 29, 2011

As I was showering this morning I came to realize that I had completely forgotten to mention my number one body smoothing secret in yesterday’s post about oils in beauty care. Isn’t it crazy how the one trick that I’ve used the last 10 years was the one to slip my mind? Anyway, the bottle [...]

An Oily Addiction

by Elsa Termenon on April 28, 2011

Byredo Perfumes

by Elsa Termenon on March 31, 2011

In L.A. I visited Barneys (Beverly Hills) absolutely divine perfume section and sniffed around even though I was not even looking to buy something. I stumbled upon the scents of the Swedish perfume house Byredo which my brother recently told me he has fallen in love with. I tried all of them and felt nice, [...]


A New Obsession

by Elsa Termenon on March 10, 2011

As we’re nearing the end of the winter it is the time of the year when my skin is in the most need of some extra love care and hydration! I’ve used my regular routine until recently when I’ve started to grow a huge obsessions of beauty products, something that has never really interested me [...]


Dry and Tired

by Elsa Termenon on February 24, 2011

Every six months I go for a deep cleansing facial at one of the city’s best spa’s. It has become a part of my beauty routine and I think it gives such a new and fresh glow to a face that has suffered the dryness of winter or the burning hot sun of the summer. [...]
