Vichy was the brand which introduced me to a higher-end (from my perspective) skincare. Sadly, this introduction didn’t go well – I’ve learned that water can break you out and other creams didn’t leave me impressed.

Since its launch, Caudalie Beauty Elixir has become almost a cult-like product in the beauty world. I don’t think there’s anyone who didn’t try it and many swear by it. As always, I’m a bit late to jump on the bandwagon, however, several months ago I’ve gotten my hands on it.

Hello lovelies,

finally the majority of items I’ve ordered in a tiny time frame of 2 days have arrived. I’m still waiting for several nail polishes, which should hopefully arrive soon, as well as some Emma Hardie and other skincare products. After all, it’s been over 3 weeks. I think that once they arrive I’m finally set.

Now, let’s see what I’ve got so far.
