Recently the skin care with animal and natural extracts are becoming more and more popular. Snake venom, snail essence…I tried a snail cream once and liked it a lot. When we were in Hong Kong, I had the possibility to try all kinds of popular Korean brands. The lovely lady in one of the shops told me that I should try this. According to her, Hanskin Snail Capsule Essence did wonders for the skin, especially for the ones with problem skin! Of course I had to try it out!
It comes in a nice white carton box. The bottle itself is made of matte glass so it makes it really heavy. I do think it looks nice though! There is 40 ml of product in it.
Here is a description from the back side of the packaging:
The opening is very hygienic, I like packaging like this for the skin care.
The serum itself has a very light texture and no color. It is more a gel, glides easily over the skin and gets absorbed quickly.
I’ve been using it for some time now and I can tell you that it did clean my skin. I apply it twice a day. As it dries my skin out, I only apply it on the trouble zones where I have large pores, black spots and sometimes pimples. My skin looks cleaner and smoother now and it also helps pimples to heal faster. I am not impressed though, this product is not unique as there are a lot of products with similar effect on the market. So as this serum is hard to get by in Europe, I would say it is not worth searching for it online. If you are by any chance in Hong Kong while you read this post, then take a look!
Overall note: B.
Where you can buy it:
Hong Kong (I bought it in a small shop for 350HKD), Korea. Online: Koreadepart.

Every year when December comes, I start feeling like Christmas! I always make a list of gifts, I think of what dishes I could make for the celebration. And of course I always think of what I’m going to wear! I love wearing beautiful fancy dresses, doing fancy glowy makeup and choosing the accessories. So today I would like to share my outfit ideas with you!
In Russia, people choose the outfits (makeup, home decor and even food!) according to Chinese Calender. I’ve read that 2014 is a year of a Blue Wooden Horse. It’s a little tradition that people always follow and I thought it was funny to share it with you! So, what shades does 2014 Horse like?
1. As year 2014 is a year of a blue wooden horse, so of course, you can wear all shades of blue!
You can go for simple but chic:

Today I decided to post an article for a look that I created using the products from my recent November Favorits Video! Seriously, I like the products that I showed you in it a lot.
For my face I used Giorgio Armani powder. I like it as its texture is so fine and smooth but today I forgot to powder it off. The pictures were taken in the end of the day so for my taste, my face looks a bit on the shiny side. But it’s so fine and smooth. It doesn’t dry my face it! And now I’m at the ‘almost no coverage’ stadium, I just don’t feel like wearing foundations. Read more »

Last week we were at friends’, had a great day with lots of fun and good food. One of our friends is a nutritionist, so I had the chance to chat with her about food. She gave me some healthy diet tips and I’d like to share them with you!
I must say that the advice she gave me are specialized for French people. I was quite surprised about some things she told me as frankly I thought it was the other way around! Also, some things she said…well, they just don’t work for me. Anyway, I think the best way to keep healthy weight is to choose the system that works best for you. So keep in mind that the following advise are not the one and only 100% true, this is more like something to think about.

It’s been some time since I posted an update! I decided to do keep you up to date as we’ve been travelling a lot recently and there is more coming, as we’re leaving France after New Year! I want to keep it secret where we’re going to for now!
So the time in France is pretty full with events, family visits and other nice stuff. The most important for me was my first makeup artist job! I was so nervous but in the end it was so cool! I am planning on posting some photos and a video on my blog soon (actually I would have done it sooner it’s just that I have more than 1000 photos and a couple of hours of video to go through, haha)! I did post some photos on my Instagram, just as a teaser
Backstage at Chaumont Wedding Event. This was a fashion show of evening and wedding fashion.
The wedding dress is created by Patrice Dormont (Métamorphoz Coiffure Chaumont), who also created all the hair styles. The other dresses are created by Manon Darras (Manon Darras).
I also filmed a short backstage video! Read more »
