For An Even Softer Skin

From Porto Santo, a small island off Madeira, I brought in my suitcases these beautiful exfoliating soaps in the shape of blue pebbles as the Atlantic Ocean, of the new local brand Terramiga (friendly earth, photo 3 below above). 

This volcanic island is renowned for its superb 9 km sandy beach. The “biogenic carbonate” sand is therapeutic to the skin, arthritis, rheumatism ... (photos abvoe 1 and 2). Curious, I couldn’t resist the temptation to try the famous warm sand treatment (the post soon!). It’s not every day you find yourself in a beautiful spa, buried in a hot sand box! 

In the Terramiga Premium box (photo above): the color of each soap corresponds to a degree of exfoliation. Foot/Hand – strong exfoliation dark blue soap. Body – medium exfoliation navy-blue soap to clean the body. Face – gentle exfoliation sky-blue soap to remove the makeup. For my hedonistic buddies, the smell is to die for!

A Very Sensual Summer

I haven’t used Vichy products for ages! And my thunderbolt product is the Vichy Ideal Body Aqua Sorbet: the creamy light texture is a treat! I don’t have to apply a lot of product to gently moisturize my super dry skin. Peach skin! And the fragrance is fantastic! A pure pleasure instant! The product would improve the firmness too. Why not! 

In summer, my objective is to fight against dehydration and irritation due to sweat, salt, solar products etc … The Ideal Body 3-Gold Oil is perfect at night to sublimate the tan on face (like a complexion illuminator), hair and body (to give a finish touch on decollete, arms and legs). 

Less is more … Versatile products to use both in the sea, town and countryside.

My Summer Beauty Routine: Three Body Oils

I love body oils! 

Here are the oils of my summer : Huile extraordinaire Nutriextra (the Nutriextra Extraordinary Oil) of Vichy (1) and Huile Divine (Divine Oil) de Caudalie (3). The Nutriextra Extraordinary Oil of Vichy really nourishes my sensitive skin very dry, a real challenge! This dry oil is composed of nine vegetable oils: muscat rose, jojoba, apricot almond, macadamia, passionflower, blackcurrant seed, rice bran, sunflower and coriander. Silicone-free and hypoallergenic! I enjoyed its non-greasy texture, very pleasant to apply to damp skin, leaving the skin a light satin veil. I finished the 125 ml spray, in a month of daily use!

And it will be the same for Divine Oil of Caudalie (100 ml spray) : I’m crazy of the irresistible fragrance with floral and woody notes. To feel bellissima, a sensual dry oil a bit sophisticated in a glass bottle. The dry oil is made of oils of grape, hibiscus, sesame and argan and antioxidant polyphenols patented by Caudalie. The plus: free of preservatives and silicones and not tested on animals. And finally, an oil which I already told you about in April: the Sublime Oil of Roger & Gallet (3) that I use as an as a perfume. Because less nourishing and moisturizing than the other two oils. But the scent cute! By the way: for very dry hair, prefer the old good Tahiti Monoi, smelling the beach and holidays…
