Sejaa

Posted on

What’s after the successful career in international modelling, a hot husband & an adorable baby ?

A skin care line, obviously !

Gisele has recently launched a skin care line – SEJAA.

Driven by the desire to develop a line of pure and natural skincare, Gisele also wanted to create products with as little impact on the environment as possible. Using all-natural ingredients, calming fragrances, thoughtful packaging and recycled paper.

All Sejaa ingredients are not only 100% natural, they are free of any parabens, petrochemicals, synthetic or genetically modified ingredients. Sejaa uses only cosmetic-grade emulsifiers & its formulas don’t contain synthetic preservatives.

The shelf life of the products is 24 months.

Currently consist of 3 products – a day cream, a night cream & a mud mask.

Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream Sun Defense SPF 50

Posted on

What you love about the classic Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant…now in an intensive sun protection with SPF 50.

This lightweight, oil-free lotion helps protect your skin from sun exposure while hydrating for up to 8 hours.

The powerful SPF 50 helps shield skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays that can cause sunburn, surface skin cell damage and premature signs of aging.

This is a lightweight, oil-free lotion that helps to protect your skin from sun exposure while hydrating for up to 8 hours ; suitable for all skin types  & It’s PABA-free !

I got sunburnt while sitting under shade in Royal Botanical garden in Sydney ! I am still on recovery ( My fair skin tone is long gone, now it’s blemished with tiny sun freckles and annoying tan line )

Wish I was more careful and had packed my Elizabeth Arden  8 Hour Cream SPF 50 with me.

I loves EA 8 SPF50 ( my trusted skin guardian ). Despite the high SPF ( ie. adequate protection ), it’s non occlusive and wouldn’t leave a white cast on my face.

It smells wonderful ( smoothing, comforting, medicinal = yeah, the either loves it or hate it 8 hour cream fragrance ) and feels really hydrating.

The finish is rather semi matte and I use it as a base for powdery foundation on days that I am out & about.

I could just wear this alone on the beach !

Chanel Kaska Beige Eyeshadow

Posted on

Chanel’s spring 2010.

I loves these shades and had been using them lately on a daily basis.  Kaska Beige is very powdery and unlike most of Chanel’s eyeshadow palette, is rather matt in finish and has minimal glitters !

I like using the deepest shade ( which is purplish dark brown ) wet as an eyeliner, it lasts for at least 8 hours on my lids; yes Chanel’s Kaska Beige could be used dry or wet, very versatile; the finish is slightly more opaque & intense if used wet ; natural with light shimmer ( subtle ) is used dry.

It should be a staple in everyone’s vanity case.
