ANTIPODES – HALO SKIN-BRIGHTENING FACIAL MUD MASK

July beauty hits
I only very recently discovered skincare brand from New Zealand Antipodes  and even though I’m not that much into organic and/or vegan beauty, I must confess a huge crush on their products. Already used two pots of their Grapeseed Butter Cleanserand have developed a major addiction to this little thing. 
 
Was recently invited at Grassroot Pantry (love, love, love) for the launch of their latest baby: the Halo Skin-Brightening Facial Mud Mask. Don’t know about you but I have always been afraid of the word brightening. If you know me you’ll also know I love nothing more than having a golden glow so why would I use brightening products? Well, I discovered that I was quite wrong about the meaning of this. As we age (I don’t like it at all but I’m getting closer and closer to my 30 and I can see that my body and my skin are changing) our skin is changing with sometimes irregularities in colour. Uneven pigmentation can be causes by sun exposure (yep, that’s me! But I swear I always use sun screen), pollution exposure (Hong Kong style), hormones, pregnancy and medication. This product features bioactive ingredients to help address the overproduction of melanin and even-out your skin tone. Which mean I don’t have to say bye to that golden tan I love so much, it will just help me have a brighter and evener complexion. 
 
Been using it a few times already and love the result! My skin looks luminous.
 
Also loving the texture of this mask featuring white volcanic mud from New-Zealand. And the smell! Like the rest of Antipodes’ products its divine … this one smells like a fresh bouquet of peonies.

ATELIER COLOGNE – JOIE DE VIVRE COLLECTION

July beauty hits
 
When it comes to perfume, I’m not the loyal kind. I like to change it based on the season, my mood, my outfit … and always have at least 5 different perfumes at the same time. But in terms of brands I do have my fav ones and Atelier Cologne  is def one of them. Their Colognes Absolues are the perfect mix of fresh and sophisticated scents and their Joie de Vivre collectionfeaturing Fresh and Lively Citruses is all I want this summer. Cannot really decide which one is my fav:
 
Clémentine California 
Pomélo Paradis 
Orange Sanguine
Bergamote Soleil
Cédrat Enivrant 
 
But can tell you I’ve been using all of them and have noticed my boyfriend is stealing them from time to time. Nothing like a splash of summer to get you started in the morning!

M.A.C – PLENTY OF POUT LIPSTICKS 

July beauty hits
In summer, I like to go easy on make-up  all year long actually … quite a nude kinda girl) and love a touch of lipstick to pimp my beauty look. Loving the new Plenty of Pout Plumping Lipsticksfrom M.A.C : instant volume, creamy summery colours and a moisturizing texture.
