Embryolisse Lait- Crème Concentré Review

Hello beauties!

In this post I'd like to present you my current favourite face cream for everyday, and tell you a little bit more about it!

I'm sure you've probably already heard me mentioning the Embryolisse brand and one of their cult beauty products, the multi-purpose nourishing moisturizer.

I was wondering, is it really that good or is it just hyped up like so many other beauty products?

It's been over a year now that I keep repurchasing it.
It really is a product I always go back to! It's a cream with high tolerance, simplicity and effectiveness for the whole family. It's a great favourite among dermatologists and much loved by all beauty professionals.

This cream can be found in basically every makeup artist's kit and it's also one of the beauty secrets of models and actresses whose skin is overstressed by makeup and makeup removal.

This cream absorbs really quickly and it's very gentle on skin. It instantly provides a soothing feeling of comfort and satin smooth skin, so it can be used even on dry and sensitive skin.

Ingredients Are From Natural Origin:

- shea butter, rich in essential fatty acids and vitamins A, D, E and F
- protective and softening beeswax
- aloe vera, contains vitamin A, E and B, minerals that combat free radicals such as selenium, amino acids, and essential fatty acids

- soy proteins which have a firming, hydrating action by stimulating collagen fibres.

This Cream Is Truly Multi Purpose:

It can be used as a makeup base to plump up the skin as it increases the staying power of foundation; it can also be diluted with spring water or mixed with foundation to achieve the desired finish.
It can also be used at night as a beauty mask (applied in a thick layer) to wake up with a smooth, radiant complexion.
It can also be used as cleansing milk as it gently removes all impurities and heavy makeup.
Men can use it for post shave care and it's also a restorative after sun care product.

So as you can see there is more than one reason for loving this product!

Health and Beauty Advice by Embryolisse:

- To keep skin healthy and beautiful, properly moisturized and nourished, drink plenty of water every day.
- Cleanse your skin every day, morning and evening, using gentle lotions or milks.
- Don't let water dry on your skin, as this will dehydrate it
- Don't rub your skin dry, but pat it gently with a towel
- Avoid prolonged exposure to the sun, and excessive quantities of tobacco and alcohol.
- Eat a balanced diet, keeping fats, sugar and salt to a minimum and including lots of fruit and vegetables.

Let me know have you ever tried this product or any other Embryolisse products?
Do you have any recommendations to share?

My 5 Favorite Summer Jumpsuits

Hello beauties!

Summertime is definitely my favorite time of the year because of the warm and sunny weather, colorful summer clothes and summer vacations!
In this post I'll share with you my top 5 favorite summer jumpsuits.

Jumpsuits are my favourite clothing item for summertime, as they're so easy to wear and you don't have to think twice about styling them, all you need is some nice accessories and you're good to go!


H&M Beige Twill Jumpsuit
SheIn Yellow Deep V Neck Vintage Floral Jumpsuit
Choies Cream Floral Print Long Sleeve Romper Playsuit
H&M Divided Womens Jumpsuit Multicolor Sleeveless Floral
Choies Multicolor Floral Print Lace Hem Tie Waist Romper Playsuit

These jumpsuits aren't my recent purchases, I've had them in my closet for a few years already but I keep wearing them every summer!
H&M and some online web stores are my favorite places to shop for cute & trendy jumpsuits.

These here aren't recent arrivals but are IN every summer, they don't go out of style, and I hope these outfit photos can serve you as an inspiration in case you're looking to buy summer jumpsuits, I think you can find similar models in stores!

This H&M jumpsuit is lovely because of the neutral color, it's awesome paired with heels, and you can pull the sleeves up to a three quarter length. It's great for breezy summer nights or chillier, rainy days.

This She In jumpsuit is one of my favorites. I used to collaborate with this web store so I was able to pick out some really cool pieces from their offer! (Get on sale here for only $12!)

This jumpsuit is made of great quality material and it's truly such a flattering model. I also love the colorful print!

I like to wear this Choies floral jumpsuit to the beach! (Get it here on sale for only $6.99!)
Choies is another brand that I've worked with, so I have more than a few items from their web store, but I noticed that similar style can be found in the offer of many other Asian web stores, at very affordable prices.

It's very lightweight material and super comfy for those hot summer days at the beach!

This floral H&M jumpsuit is from their Divided section.
I wore it a lot in summer 2016. when I was pregnant, as it was super comfy and pretty!

I still like to wear it, it truly gives me those vacation vibes :-)

Last on my list is this Choies floral romper playsuit. I like to wear it everyday, it's very light and flowy! (Get it here on sale for $12.99!)
I usually accessorize it with straw fedora hat, little crossbody bag and some cute sandals.
I hope you like my choices!

Let me know which one is your favorite?
How are you spending your summer thus far?

Extremely Pigmented Matte Liquid Lipsticks Under $4!

Hello beauties!

Recently I got a chance to test out a few products from

Actually a funny story: was my first ever collaboration, back in 2009. when I opened my youtube channel! I'm glad to say that our collaboration has lasted through all these years, this just goes to show that I'm very happy with their products!

This time, I decided to try out some of the newest items that they've added to their stock.

Bonnie Choice Matte Liquid Lipsticks seemed appealing, so I actually picked 3 shades of pretty nudes (apparently, I love my nudes, lol! And, I couldn't make up my mind which one I liked best!)

These lipsticks are waterproof and long lasting (super long lasting, may I add! They're perfect for those occasions when you don't have a chance to touch up your makeup, as they'll last through a long day at work, lunch breaks, dinners out or all night party!)
At first, they can feel a bit drying on the lips (which is something I dislike, but majority of matte lipsticks feels like that), so make sure to apply a nourishing lip balm beforehand.
The good news is that, even though they feel a bit drying, by the end of the day they won't dry out your lips! Some matte lipsticks can make your lips super dry, cracked even...these won't!
They're extremely pigmented and have this pretty velvety finish on the lips!

Here are the three shades of nudes that I picked out:

From top to bottom, lipstick swatches: #3 SHOWGIRL, #4 LEE, #5 POSH

The price of these lipsticks is only $ 3.59 each, which is an amazing price, considering the quality and the overall packaging. They can stand side by side to many high end, more popular (and very pricey) similar products!

Shades #3 and #4 are pretty similar, but one is more towards nude and the other has more pinkish notes to it.

There are other shades available (8 total, ranging from nudes, to reds, to dark ones)

Soon I'll be filming a video review where I'll show you how all these shades look like on my lips, so make sure to stop by (please subscribe if you haven't yet) my youtube channel!

There is also a little treat for all my readers, I have 10% off coupon that you can use for anything from the site, including free shipping!
At checkout use SONJAK31 also has in its offer everything you'll need for nail art, skincare, make up etc. so take a look!

Let me know, have you ever ordered anything from bornprettystore?

Which is your favorite brand for matte lipstick?

Zaful Summer Fashion: Summer Outfit under $50 budget

Hello lovelies!

You guys already know that Zaful is one of my favourite on line web stores! They have always trendy new arrivals, really good quality items, speedy delivery (even when it's standard shipping), and friendly and efficient customer's service. What more can you ask for? The prices are also very competitive, and the offer is most times even better than in your most popular high street stores!

In a relatively short span of time, Zaful has become one of favourite shopping destinations of many fashionistas, bloggers and influencers.
Now, Zaful is celebrating their 4th anniversary so on their website you'll find numerous great deals, true bargains, coupon codes, free shipping deal etc.

For my readers, Zaful agreed to offer this exclusive code that you can enter at checkout to get a bit of discount: ZafulW
(if you buy 25$ worth of items, you just need to pay 22$, if you buy 50$ worth of items, you just need to pay 44$.. )  (based on how much you spend, you have a certain discount, here are a few examples 25$-3$ off, 50$-6$ off, 100$-12$ off)

I want to take advantage of their anniversary deals, so I browsed through their web store's offer, to find the perfect summer outfit for under $50 budget!
Here is it! I love it and I want to share it with you :-)

This HONEY tee is one of their super popular items. There are many customer's reviews, and they recommend going a size up when ordering this tee! It's very cute and I'll probably end up putting it in my shopping cart ;-)

In my last order, I had 2 pairs of pants and they were perfect in quality and fit! I thought I should order another pair, as Zaful has some of the hottest trends available now in stock!
Thes khaki high waist pants are a very popular model, but I'm not yet sure whether to go for my usual size, or to size it up! The customer's reviews are split when talking about this, some recommend sizing up, some say it fits true to size...
What should I do? Do you already have these pants? Let me know!

To complete the look, I went for this "Water Wash Do Old Baseball Hat" 

This model comes in a variety of different colors, but I went for this reddish one, as I wanted to match my whole styling. Baseball hats are so in right now, and they're also a great sun protection. An absolute must if you're out & about, or at the beach!

Here's a complete look for just a tad bit over $40! I think that's pretty good!!!

How do you like this styling? Let me know what are your Zaful faves at the moment, are there items you have on your wish list? Remember, now it's the right time to place that order and take advantage of many discounts Zaful has prepared for you :-)

Charcoal Teeth Whitening | BIANCO SMILE Premium Bamboo Charcoal Toothbrush + Oral Hygiene Tips for Healthy Teeth!

Hello guys!

I teamed up with Bianco Smile to share with you my best oral hygiene tips for healthy teeth and gums, and also, I got to test out their Premium Bamboo Charcoal Toothbrush.
Bianco Smile is a company that specializes in teeth whitening products, based on charcoal.
They have 100% natural, vegan options, replacing harmful chemicals that make your gums sensitive, with other whitening agents that bring out even better result!

Charcoal teeth whitening isn't any news for me! Since I was a kid, I used to listen to the stories of my grandmother's brother and his beautiful white teeth! Back then, there weren't so many beauty products available on the market, so he was actually using charcoal to whiten his teeth! This story stuck with me, so I wasn't surprised when this whole "new trend" of charcoal teeth whitening exploded in our beauty community!

In this video I talk more about the bamboo toothbrush and I also test in out on camera! Check it out

The toothbrush is very lightweight and the bristles are soft and safe for the gums. I'll keep testing it for the next couple of months, and, hopefully, it'll help to lighten my teeth for at least one shade.
I'm pretty content with how my teeth look like, but I noticed that during my pregnancy, they went a shade darker! I don't know if that was pregnancy related, or just a coincidence, but I don't drink coffee and I'm not big on drinking tea, so I don't know what else might have cause it.

I'm obsessed with good oral hygiene, and having healthy teeth is so important for me! 
Visiting dentist for regular check ups twice a year is a must, and so is brushing my teeth after each meal. I also recommend flossing before going to sleep, and using a good mouth wash. In alternative, coconut oil pulling is also something that works well!

Personally, I prefer investing in good oral hygiene, than buying a new lipstick and I really believe that here, in our beauty community, we should talk more about the importance of it!

Also, Bianco Smile products are approved internationally and abide by healthy and consumer regulations. Their products are tested by professional experts and aren't tested on animals.

Replacing your toothbrush every 2-3 months is a must, and obviously after each flu or cold.
Bianco Smile instagram community is ever growing and thousands of satisfied consumers are sharing their "before" and "after" pics!
I'll be sharing soon my results too, so make sure to follow my instagram if you aren't yet! (Stop by and say "hi"!)

I hope that you like this little improvised photo session from my bathroom! ;-)

New In: Zaful

Hello lovelies!

I have a "new in" post to share with you :-)
I got some bits from one of my favourite on-line fashion store, Zaful and I really love everything that I've chosen, so here are a few photos and a quick review.
I hope this is going to be interesting in case you were thinking about getting the same things.

I'm really into high waisted wide leg pants this season, and Zaful has got some really pretty models. This was my first time ordering pants (bottoms) from Zaful, as usually I always went for top parts, knowing that it's easier to pick the right size.
But, before ordering I checked well my measurments and the item's description, and I have to add, other customer's reviews were super helpful too!

I got these Striped Color Block High Waist Wide Leg Pants in medium, as most reviews recommended to go a size up from your usual size.
I wasn't wrong, they fit perfectly, they're very flowy and light, ideal for the summer heat. The slit isn't too high, so I can even wear them for work. I feel super chic when wearing them :-)
The price was awesome too! Only $14.99 as a special deal.
You can get yours here

Another pair of pants that I ordered were these Belted Stripes Wide Leg Pants, and these I got in a size small. Again, it was a wise move to listen to other customer's reviews and go for a size that I usually wear. These are a perfect fit!
They're made of a really nice quality material, and they aren't seethrough! Again, very fresh, lightweight model, perfect for summer heat.
Order yours here

I really, really wanted to buy a floral kimono this season! They're a big trend and all the high street stores carry them right now! I found this pretty Belted Floral Kimono Blouse which is supposed to be very similar to the one Zara had in their offer. I went for the size S and if they had a size smaller, maybe it would have been better as this has quite a large fit. But, overall I'm happy with it.
Get yours here

Last, but not least, I got these cool Leopard Pattern Match Black Sunglasses
I like how they look like on me, and they aren't too heavy. This is also quite popular model this summer!
They cost only $5.44 and you can order a pair here

The shipping was surprisingly fast! I got the packages in 10 days more-less (and that was with standard shipping). I can say by now that I'm a very happy Zaful customer, as I'm always returning to shop there and my closet is quickly getting full of their clothes and accessories ;-)

Zaful is currently celebrating its 4th anniversary!!! They're getting bigger by day! On their website you'll find many promotions, coupon codes and special deals every day, so make sure to take a look!

I have a special code for you as a little surprise gift! Add ZFAnn when you make your oder and save:
Over 25usd save 3usd
Over 50usd save 6usd
Over 100usd save 12usd

I'm sorry for all the photos being taken indoors, but between work and taking care of my little one, it's hard to find time to organize a whole photo sessions like I used to. Anyways, I wanted to share this post with you ASAP as there are currently great promotions going on at Zaful, so you don't miss out! In case you need my measurments for your reference when making an order, I'm 170 cm tall, cca 55kg, I usually wear size XS-S both on botton and top part (34-36 EU).
I hope this was helpful! If you have any questions, feel free to leave me your comments, I'd be happy to help :-)

Happy shopping! ;-)
