Hi, everybody! I’m Svetlana (Lana for short), fashion & beauty addict and I don’t have any slightest intention to get rid of this obsession. I’m a big fan of good old movies too.
My English is far from perfect so I apologize in advance for mistakes I’ll make.
My pinterest account is here.
We all have a personal fears: someone afraid of ghosts, someone of aliens, some of any kind of chemicals (which is a bit strange for a educated person living in XXI century).
Here is a short list of products for those who don’t want to see word “aluminium” in the list of ingredients of their deodorants.
Annemarie Borlind‘s Body Lind Roll-On Deodorant Balm with aloe leaf juice powder and sweet almond is suitable for sensitive skin and can be used after hair removal. Lavanila’s stick The Healthy Deodorant with corn starch, lemon peel oil and honeysuckle extract are made for sweet girls – the base note of brand odour killers is vanila.
If you’re in the mood for a cream texture try one of these 2 options.
Schmidt‘s Bergamot + Lime Deodorant Jar based on baking soda (sodium bicarbonate), essential oil and shea butter (Alicia Silverstone’s is a big fan of Schmidt’s deodorants) or Fig + Yarrow‘s handmade Underarm Lotion reduce excessive perspiration with help of sage and witch hazel extracts ans zinc.
You can get more information about natural deodorants here on reviews.com (by the way, on this site you can find a lot of very useful information).
Paule Ka’s Skirt In Tailored Cotton and Satin-Baked Crepe Top are perfect choice for a classic office outfit but you can easily turn them into a stylish cocktail outfit, just decorate them with Rene Coavilla‘s chic Satin and Leather Court Shoes and Theo Fennell‘s extremely cute Crowned Kingfisher Brooch.
You get bored with face wash and cleansing milk? Go for cleansing powder!
Dermalogica‘s Daily Microfoliant with Rice Powder and Enzymes, Papain, Salicylic Acid gently exfoliates skin and brightens pigmentation. Antonia Burrell‘s Luminous Light Polishing Powder with Tea Tree Leaf Extract and Collodial Outmeal kills bacterias and reduces redness and inflamation. DHC‘s Face Wash PowderFace Wash Powder with Protease Enzymes and Honey dissolves dead cells and moisturizes skin.
By the way, cleansing powder is a perfect option for travel – no spillage in your suitcase.
P.S. Girls with spider vains on face: I’m afraid this option is harsh for our sensitive skin.
Bright silk Overrolls Dakan by Mes Demoiselles will look pretty with LeJu‘s Beige and Golden Yellow Vegatable Ivory Statement Necklace with Agate Detail, Brighton‘s mood lifting Staci G Shopper and Chloe Gosselin‘s Bryonia sandals.
Italian shoe brand Loriblu has something to offer to fashionistas.
I like stilettos with multicolor straps, comfortable silver sandals, white patent leather muli and red suede oxford shoes.
Loriblu‘s motley sandals (low heel version of stilettos with multicolor straps) will make a cute casual outfit with Basler‘s shirt dress and Marimekko‘s Kirjo/Heli cotton bag.
Italian pumps and clutch in printed red leather will decorated Tara Jarmon‘s Cream Crepe Sleevless Dress perfectly.
Good old Soviet caricature
