REVIEW: La Roche- Posay Effaclar MAT (The New Formula)

Hello lovelies!

You have asked me to do a review of my favourite skincare products of the moment, products that help keep my skin "under control".

La Roche- Posay Effaclar MAT, sebo- regulating moisturizer, is definitely on the list!

I really like to use it, because it acts as anti-shine, anti- enlarged pores and it's also paraben free, so it is very gentle to use even on the very sensitive skin!

In the past, I have done a review on Effaclar K, you can watch it 

This summer, I was looking for a good moisturizer that would keep my skin oil/shine free and that would be gentle enough on my blemish prone skin.
That's how I found the Effaclar MAT!
I was already familiar with La Roche- Posay brand and I've also heard nothing but good reviews on behalf of Effaclar MAT, so I thought I'd give it a shot!
I wasn't disappointed :)

You can find out my thoughts on this product, if you check out my new review video, here:

La Roche- Posay
Effaclar MAT
Sebo- regulating moisturizer
anti- shine
anti-enlarged pores
paraben- free

Let's find out a little bit more about Effaclar MAT...

Shine and enlarged pores have the same cause: sebum excess.
Effaclar MAT is formulated with Sebulyse which helps to mattify skin and tighten pores. Sebulyse sebo- regulating efficacy is clinically superior to zinc, the reference active ingredient.

Indications: Oily skin, suitable for sensitive skin.
Oil free blotting effect texture, proven long lasting mattifying effect. non comedogenic, tested under dermatological control.

Results:Moisturizes and mattifies the skin immediately. Day after day skin texture is refined, pores are tightened and sebum production slows down.

Use: Apply morning and/or evening on the whole face. Avoid eye contour. Excellent make-up base.

In croatian:

Effaclar linija sadrzi termalnu vodu La Roche- Posay, te se brine o "boljem zivotu" osjetljive koze!
Masni sjaj karakterizira masnu kozu sklonu nepravilnostima. Takva koza cesto je grube i zadebljane povrsine, a put bez sjaja i s nepravilnostima.
Takvu je kozu potrebno svakoga dana temeljito cistiti i davati joj potrebnu vlagu cime poticemo uklanjanje prekomjerenog sebuma i nepravilnosti.

Effaclar u svojoj ponudi ima ucinkovite formule za uklanjanje i sprecavanje problema s kozom.

Effaclar MAT hidratantna njega prilagodjena je masnoj i sjajnoj kozi jer regulira proizvodnju sebuma.
Rezultat je glatka i matirana, intenzivno hidratizirana koza.
Dan za danom, pore su uze i koza vraca ravnotezu.

Effaclar MAT hidratantna njega regulira proizvodnju sebuma, djeluje protiv sjaja i protiv prosirenih pora; ispitana je na masnoj kozi, a ne sadrzi parabene pa je prikladna i njezi najosjetljivije koze.

Nadam se da vam je ova kratka recenzija bila korisna!
Ja sam zaista zadovoljna ovom kremom i primjecujem pozitivne rezultate na kozi kada ju koristim!

Jeste li imali vec prilike isprobati nesto od La Roche- Posay kozmetike i sto?
Podijelite te samnom!
Sto vam se posebno svidjelo, da li vas je neki proizvod razocarao?

I hope this was a helpful review, especially if you're thinking about purchasing something from La Roche- Posay line!

If you already have the experience with their products, share it with me!
Is there a product that you like a lot, is there a product that maybe disappointed you?

I'll be back soon with another post!

Summer to Fall, BIG Fashion Haul

Hello beauties!

I think it's time for a HAUL!!! :)

I hope you enjoy watching! :)

I also took the pics of all the items that I purchased in the last couple of months, so I could show them to you here!
Hopefully this will serve to you as an inspiration :)

Dainty, "evil eye" bracelet from Accessorize.
4.90 €

Bershka Aztec print skirt
This clothing item was very popular among bloggers this past spring!
I never got a chance to buy it, until the end of summer sales, when I grabed it immediately for only 6.99€
I can still wear this skirt, in the early Fall days, paired with tights & lots of layering on top!

Mint green tank top from Bershka.
I bought it because I thought it would go perfectly with my new aztec print skirt!
I love the colour, and the lace detail on the back :)
Bought at the end of summer sales for 4.99€

"Run Faster" tank top from Bershka, which I absolutely love!
I found it at the end of summer sales, for only 2.99€

Another great find at Bershka, for only 2.99€ was this pink skull tank top, with
a zipper detail on the back, which makes this top so cute!

Waterfall cardigans, basic wardrobe must-haves in these early fall days.
Great for layering, but still pretty lightweight!
4.99€ each, at the end of summer sales@ Bershka!
Bought it in this neutral/beige & grey colour.

A few hair accessories/ decorations from H&M
Would you like to see a hair tutorial on how to do a volumized bun with this sponge- thing?
prices go from 2.95€ to 3.95€

These pants are so flattering!
Skinny style, high waisted, they hug your body perfectly :)
I think this "Dalmatian dog" print is so fun!
New collection at H&M, only 9.95€

New collection at H&M
Oversized green top
This colour is very trendy for the new season :)
I actually bought it to pair it with my "Dalmatian dog" print pants, I think I saw that combo somewhere before,
& I really liked it!

Local boutique:
Knitted pink top, cute button details at the sides!
5€ on a special offer

Military style blouse from a local boutique here in Italy.
The price was around 6€, maybe less, and it was a promotional price, so
I couldn't pass on it!
I was thinking of embellishing it with a little metal studs that I got of ebay...
DIY project, here we go! ;)

I'm in love with this top!
So casual, yet so trendy!
I love the spiked heels and a little clutch with a skull print.
On a special promo, for only 4€ at my local italian boutique.
This top also came in blue, black and white and I wanted to buy them all,
but I behaved well and restrained myself! :)

What I like in particular about this top, is that it has a real metal spikes and little
rhinestones on the heel and clutch print :)

It is a bit oversized, so I like to wear this T-shirt with my leggings, or skinny jeans!

Some colorful scarves, from Bershka.
I loved the mint green one because of the colour, and I thought the skull one is so cute :)
2.99€ each, at the end of summer sales.

This Fall season, military style is IN!
This jacket is a part of the new collection at Pull & Bear
39.95€ (If I'm not mistaken! It might be 49.95€...sorry ...I didn't keep the receipt and my memory fades, ha!)
I looove the leather & military combo, so fierce!

Some new shoes for the Fall...
Tally Weijl ballet flats (aren't the gold hearts just adorable??) 12.95€
Brown heels from Stradivarius (end of summer sales!!!) 9.95€ - but these are most def. Fall shoes!!!
Suede like black booties, Pull & Bear, 9.95€ (another great steal at the summer sales, for a trendy Fall!)

Bracelets from Stradivarius
(new collection)
set of 3

Gift from my friend and colleague from work, Raffa!
Such a cute, "summer-y" necklace :)
From Stradivarius
Thank you Raffa (grazie mille!!!)

Floral print cargo pants, from Stradivarius!
Now hear this: I bought them at the end of summer sales, for less than 6€ which was innnsane, given the fact that I saw VERY similar pants now, as a new arrivals for the Fall 2012. at Zara & similar shops... (!!!)

New collection at Stradivarius, but I had to have them!
39.95€ doesn't seem all that expensive when you're looking at these super pretty & sparkly, sequin shorts!
It's just what I needed as an addition to my wardrobe, for the new Fall season :)

Neon is actually going to stay trendy even in Fall!
One wouldn't think that, as these are pretty much summer-yyy colours!
It's definitely IN :)
I was happy to get this necklace from Zara, for 3.99€ (discounted from 19.95€)
I love Zara accessories, but they can be so freakin' expensive!
19.95€ for this "metal trendy junk"? NO THANKS, I'LL PASS! lol

Another most blogged about item, in this new Fall season, is this military style parka from Zara.
These were sold out in a matter of minutes!
A bit pricey, but I'm conforting myself thinking how much I enjoy wearing it & styling it in many different ways!
I wore it with girly, floral print, the other day, and really liked the combo, and the whole contrast of a rough military style, with innocent, girly, floral print! :)

I love the embellished pocket details!

So guys, this was my haul!
I know it's been a while, but I guess this one can make it up to you, for the lack of hauls in the previous months!
As you can see, these are the items that I accumulated since the end of August, so I didn't just go out & went crazy past week or something! 

I hope the next fashion haul will come soon, but I do need to put on my best behaviour and try to restrain myself when it comes to shopping!
I know I'm never really successful at that, but I'll try and limit myself to only purchasing things that I really like & will have a lot of usage out of, in the upcoming months!

Thank you so much for stopping by,

Food & Health: Grocery Haul!

Hello girls!

I was asked a lot of questions about my diet and what do I eat to stay slim...

That's why I thought I would film this quick "Grocery Haul" video, where I basically give you a glimpse of what's in my fridge, showing you all the groceries that I bought for my weekly needs! I do try to vary and get different things every week, but I also do have some things that I always like to have in my diet!
I hope this answered to some of your questions related to what do I eat on a day to day basis, and maybe inspired you in some way!

You can watch my "Grocery Haul" video here:

As you can see, I always need to have plenty of fruits and vegetables in my diet!
I also like different types of cheese :)

Here are a few healthy snack ideas, pics that I've taken in the afternoon hours, during this week, in my breaks from writing a blog post, or editing a video, when I needed an extra energy and something yummy to eat! ;)

My famous seasonal fruit salads:
Bananas, peaches, dates, kamut cereals and extra honey on top of everything!
2 slices of bread with strawberry jam (strawberries & wild strawberries mix)
Chocolate soy milk

Fruit salad: Bananas, peaches, grapes, kamut cereals and honey!

If you would like to see more of these videos/ posts in the future, leave me a comment!
I'd be more than happy to film a receipe video for my famous seasonal fruit salad!
It's so yummy & healthy, you won't be needing or craving any other (unhealthy) snacks!

Having fun while filming my Caudalie review video!

(In croatian...)


Caudalie n.(kodali) (enoloski izraz)- mjerna jedinica...koja pokazuje duljinu trajanja arome i okusa vina na nepcu nakon sto smo popili gutljaj vina.
Sto je vino kvalitetnije, kodali je dulji i intenzivniji.

Najsnazniji antioksidans poznat u biljnom svijetu. Antioksidansi neutraliziraju slobodne radikale koji su glavni uzrok starenja koze. Oni su najbolji stit protiv starenja koze.

Vraca kozi njezinu cvrstocu i mladolik izgled. Medicinski fakultet na sveucilistu Harvard proglasio je ovaj sastojak najucinkovitijim za produzivanje zivotnog vijeka stanice. Neophodno!

Sok iz grozdjanih peteljki u proslosti je koristen za umanjenje tamnih mrlja i posvjetljivanje tena mladih zena. Sto se krije iza tog iznimnog fenomena?
Viniferin koji su ptkrili i patentirali Caudalie istrazivaci, stite od nastajanja tamnih mrlja i osiguravaju kozi ujednacenu put.

Ekstrahirana iz pulpe organski uzgojenog grozdja, ova biljna voda bogata je polisaharidima i oligoelementima te ima izvanredna hidratizirajuca i omeksavajuca svojstva.

Cisto i profinjeno nemasno ulje bogato je omega-6 masnim kiselinama i vitaminom E.
Regenerira i hrani cak i vrlo dehidrirani epidermis.

Sastojak ekstrahiran iz stijenke vinskog kvasca koji ima sposobnost da zadrzi volumen vode 100 puta veci od vlastitog volumena. Jaca koznu barijeru.

Eto, nakon ovog malog leksikona i boljeg upoznavanja na cemu se baziraju Caudalie proizvodi za njegu koze i tijela, nije li istina da biste ih rado isprobali sve? ;)

I hope that this review was interesting & helpful to many!
If you have any questions, leave it to me in the comment's section!

I'd also like to know, have you ever tried out anything from Caudalie, and if so, did you happen to like any product in particular and which one?
