I haven't done a beauty post for a while! I got some new (new for me) products, which I want to show you today. Let's start with two anti-ageing creams: Estée Lauder Advanced Time Zone & Estée Lauder DayWear. Both can be used day and night, including DayWear, which I initially thought was a day cream only. What do I like about them? First of all, their light texture as they are non-greasy (unlike many other creams) and the fact that they come with SPF 15. They are available for different skin types and I've now added them to my permanent cream rotation list.

Over time I have acquired a few freckles and lately I have been looking for a skin brightening cream. I really never would have thought that I would one day but there you go... My blogger friend Sun recommended By Terry Cellularose Brightening CC Lumi-Serum. I have to admit that at first I did not really like the shimmery effect it leaves on my face. Once I add foundation though, it is no longer visible. I will use the product up but I'm not yet sure, whether I will buy again. Time will tell if this will turn into an essential or not. 

I grew a bit unhappy with the Marc Jacobs and Givenchy foundations that I used to love. I'm not saying that the quality of these products diminished. They just didn't really match my changing skin any longer I guess. Recently I gave these drugstore alternatives Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream and Accord Parfait Fluide by L'Oréal Paris a try. I love them. Sometimes I just use the CC cream on its own but on most days I wear the foundation on top. Super great value and they provide full and lasting coverage. Will definitely buy again! 

I love my loose powders. For years I have been using Lancôme's Poudre Majeur Excellence Libre but I was curious to see what else was out there and I opted for Diorskin Nude Air Poudre Libre. I am really impressed by it because it keeps my skin matte for longer. Estée Lauder Poudre Libre Perfection du Teint is also great, mostly to carry around with me in my bag as it comes in a smaller size and is a perfect alternative to pressed powders. 

Last but not least the magic serum by Estée Lauder: Advanced Night Repair, which I have been using for while now. They say that you can use it day and night but I only apply it before going to sleep. I can definitely see the difference that this product makes. My skin looks more youthful and refreshed the times that I put it on. It's really worth the investment.

I will present more beauty products in an upcoming post, so please stay tuned!
