#PerfumeMonday: Atelier Cologne Santal Carmin & Blanche Immortelle

Atelier Cologne Collection Métal Santal Carmin & Blanche Immortelle

Atelier Cologne is a brand that I got to discovered a little while back. While I am personally not the biggest fan of citrus (I don’t dislike it. I just don’t get as excited about it), their Collection Matières Absolues and Collection Métal are nothing short of fascinating. Recently, the brand added two new creations to Collection Métal, namely *Santal Carmin and *Blanche Immortelle. If you are like me, namely when you like an ingredient, you want it to stand out in a scent, none of these would disappoint you!

Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Serum

Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Serum

I am almost a little embarrassed to admit I like the new *Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Serum… quite a bit! You might know that I don’t place a lot of trust in skincare products based on silicone, and I often snort in derision when I see shimmer in skincare: what, do you think you can fool me with a pinch of fairy dust? Testing skincare out is a major commitment for me. To be honest, I wasn’t even sure I would give Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Serum the chance. One night I found it somewhere, and I thought: “oh, why the hell not. If I don’t like it, I don’t.” I pumped some out, put it on my face, and hey… I didn’t hate the texture as much as I had thought I would! After giving it a proper go, I am ready to share my thoughts about it! [Read more...]
