I know I'm late for the party and that everyone has already raved about this. But this Garnier micellar water is really, really good. I couldn't go by without saying anything.
My ultimate favorite is from Biafine but unfortunately it's not sold in Portugal. My runner up is from Bioderma but it's way too expensive specially for the rate that I go through each bottle.
I use it twice a day and it really helps cleaning and toning my skin. It's the cleaning part that I'm mostly interested. I wash my face with soap and water and then I get cotton-pad soaked in this product and I rub it all over my face. You should see how much yucky stuff comes off my face -- even when I've just washed it!

It almost seems that I enjoy this little games we keep playing.
It almost seams that I like figuring out all the little lies, all the little details. And yeah, I love to solve puzzles. I hate to solve these puzzles.
My brain is working all the time. I enjoy watching people. And I've learned a lot from that. I notice everything. EVERYTHING. Every detail, every word misspoken, every subtil action, every micro-expression. And I hate this side of me. I hate that no one can hide anything from me. I'm not saying that I can figure out exactly what is going on, but I know when something smells fishy.
I often get it right. He can't hide anything from me. For a while I just pretended I didn't notice. But not anymore.
I know he also has this skill. We think the same way. The funniest thing about this is that all the plans and the lies he comes up with, Are all things that could have come out of my own brain. That's why I figure it out so quickly. And he is able to do the same, I know. I lied once, and he saw right trough me.
Because of all this crap, I know he is the one for me. We are indeed soulmates. Birds of a feather. Fuck.
For while now I've been really into things that smell of lavender. I've always liked this sense. I don't know exactly what is about it, but whenever I smell it, it just makes me feel cozy, and clean! I feel clean whenever I shower with something that smells like lavender, it is kinda weird, I know.
Lavender is great, and it has a bunch of benefits to the skin! Lavender has antiseptic and anti-fungal properties, and is often used for treating yucky skin problems, it helps balancing the skin, helping to calm it, helping skin to regenerante and to properly heal. Supposedly, it helps acne, it strengthens hair, helps get rid of dandruff and oily hair. And, most importantly -- it smooths our cellulite! Lavender improves circulation, and prevents stretch marks and dispels fluid retention, thus helping with the appearance of cellulite!
So yeah, showering with a lavender-thingy every day sounds extremely beneficial! This is why this Lush soap has become one of my shower essentials! It's called Serendipity and it's a little slice of heaven. It smells so good. My whole bathroom smells like lavender, just from having this soap sitting around. It even has little lavender flowers mixed in, that fall in your bathtub as use the soap. I like to use a shower puff, thus I just rub the soap on my puff until it is full of foam and I wash my body with that. It lathers really nicely, creating a soft -- slightly purple -- foam. It is made with all fresh and natural ingredients, and I love it. I doesn't make my skin feel dry, but clean and tight. It's definitely my favorite.
Do you remember when I asked you for help, about the difficult decision of choosing a new perfume to buy?
Well, me being me, I bought one that wasn't on that list. I went shopping with my mom, and she ended up pushing me into this one - Chanel Chance Eau Tender. She said she thinks it's more sober but yet young. Honestly, I'm not sure I'm in love with this fragrance. Some times I smell it and I love it. Some times I smell it and I hate it. I'm wearing it for the first time today. Let's see how it goes. It's Chanel anyway. You can't go wrong with anything Chanel.
