  1. I must admit I am tempted to take the plunge a clarasonic but I really do love double cleansing with a hot flannel and I’m worried the clarisonic will be a let down in comparison. Have you double cleansed with a flannel before? If so, how does it compare to the clarisonic? x

  2. Hello lovely,

    I’ve tried all types of cleansing methods and to be honest, I do tend to double cleanse with the Clarisonic as I remove the majority of my make-up first with a micellar solution. I definitely think you’d see quite a lot of improvement with the Clarisonic as it shifts grime in a way that other cleansing methods can’t. Let me know if you go for it xx

  3. Ha ha 😀 the eyeliners are absolutely gorgeous; every day I can’t decide which one I prefer! xx

  5. Hello Sascha 🙂 I have been following your blog for a while but only now I had the courage to comment (I am a bit strange, really), I really like it, in fact I think you were the first where I saw the Nails Inc press release for Spring-Summer 2013 collection (great post on that one too!). I have a few questions for you and I hope you can help me. I have been considering to buy a BB cream for quite a while now, but I have been putting the idea aside. However, there are two brands that I would like to try – Dr Jart and Rodial. Dr Jart is currently on offer at Boots but I wasn’t expecting that they would have this many variations. I am confused between the regenerating and the water fusion one. Which one did you enjoy the most? I am not looking for heavy coverage or foundation-like, I just would like to know whether you felt that it made a difference on your skin as a skincare product. Thank you very much! Take care.

    1. Hi Sonia,

      Thanks for your lovely comment and I’m so glad you took the plunge! 🙂 I’ll definitely try to help:

      Firstly, I haven’t tried Rodial so I can’t really comment, but I have tried a couple of the Dr Jart+ ones and the Regenerating one is in my top three; in fact I’d go as far to say that it takes joint first place with the Ginvera Green Tea one. What sort of coverage are you looking for? You mentioned you’re not looking for high coverage so how about one of the Boots No7 BB Creams? They’re always on offer and aren’t too expensive, so they’re a good place to start with BB Creams. However, if you’re keen on trying something from Dr Jart+ then it really depends on what your skin type is, as I got on best with the Regenerating one, but weirdly it isn’t meant for my skin type. Yet the Water Fuse one – which I believe is meant more for my skin type – I didn’t get on too well with and people with normal/dry skins have marked it as their favourite!

      I realise all of that is probably a bit confusing so I’d summarise by saying that I really like the Regenerating one as the finish is dewy, the coverage is medium but buildable and it didn’t break me out. It’s really difficult to tell whether the skincare benefits work or not, as I think the only way you could tell is if you cut out all over skincare (as you can’t really tell what’s doing what otherwise) but as I mentioned, it certainly didn’t make my skin any worse and my skin is prone to reacting to lots of things.

      Hope this helps but if you have any more questions or would like me to clarify anything then just shout xx

      1. Hi Sascha 🙂 you’re welcome, I will comment more from now on.

        What I am looking for is something that will treat my skin but also make it look nice (flawless is too much to ask really)… I thought about the No7 ones, but I used a couple of No7 products before and I didn’t like it, so I decided to go with the traditional/asian one – Dr Jart+. My skin type is combination mostly, I do tend to have an only t zone, with dry patches here and there, a spots on my forehead (small but annoying), enlarged pores on nose and cheeks, you know the normal combination skin. I don’t want to feel that I am wearing something pigmented, I am looking for something light on my skin that just makes it look well rested and not tired or dull.

        Thank you very much for your reply and help!***

        1. Fab, thanks Sonia; I hope you do! 🙂

          Actually for combination skin then the Ginvera one might be a good choice for you which is here:

          Although it does give a very dewy finish and you do have to order it online. You really can’t go wrong with the Dr JArt+ one and as I mentioned, the Regenerating one is my personal favourite and it’s also got quite a nice, glowy finish and both of those are great for combination skins as long as you’re not after anything too matte xx
