Personalised skincare with My Blend

If you have been following me for a while you know how much I love skincare and discovering new products and also you know how much I love personalised things. I have recently discovered a perfect combination of those two things and added them to my usual skincare routine and wanted to share this unique concept My Blend developed with all of You.

My blend has been founded by Dr. Olivier Courtin, the son of the founder of Clarins Group and offers a new concept that is tailored to your needs and your lifestyle. That got my attention straight away and I decided to go on this little journey to test it.

The first step of the process was a call with a Beauty coach (you can also do an online test which may be easier for lot of you) who diagnoses your skin by asking you relevant questions about your lifestyle, diet, where you work, how much you sleep and so on. So the content of your creams may change few months later. My Blend offers 5 essential formulas and my test showed my creams have to focus on stress management. There is no surprise as if you even follow my youtube channel where I have mentioned My Blend in few of my vlogs, you realise I do a lot in one day and look after a toddler at the same time. I also do not sleep enough, have early starts and so on.

However, it is not just about 5 different creams but you are then diagnosed which boosters does your skin need at the moment the most? It all depends on things like size of pores, dullness of your skin, redness etc. My blend basically offers 350 different possible blends which is definitely a lot and it only confirms how tailored the skincare is.

It honestly is a great concept and although I first had a feeling it is very overwhelming I found it very easy to mix the boosters with the creams and started to use them straight away. In the end I actually had fun mixing it and felt like I am working in a lab at least for few minutes. The night and day creams are now part of my skincare routine and I am seeing first results after just few weeks. The biggest impact I have noticed is definitely in the size of my pores. They are less visible and also the skin seems to be more radiant. My skin feels hydrated but you do not have to be worried that the cream feels heavy or too oily. It has got a lovely consistency and packaging as well.

Both day and night cream became smoothly part of my routine and I am very happy with them.

Jak asi vite, mam rada veci site na miru a mam rada i kosmetiku. Bavi me objevovat nove veci, stridat a menit rutinu a vyzkousela jsem spoustu produktu vcetne produktu na zaklade vaseho DNA.

Ale nedavno jsem mela moznost vyzkouset novy koncept navrhnuty doktorem Olivirem Courtinem, ktery je zakladatelem skupiny Clarins a prisel na trh s novym produktem a znackou My Blend. Jedna se o kremy site na miru na zaklade vasich momentalnich potreb a vaseho zivotniho stylu. Nebudu vam lhat, ze jsem castecne chtela produkt vyzkouset uz jenom diky jmenu Clarins, protoze jejich veci mam moc rada, ale cely projekt mi prisel zajimavy. 

Cely postup zacal tim, ze jsem mela skype pohovor se specialistou (tento test se da udelat i online), ktery mi polozil serii otazek, aby identifikoval muj zivotni styl. Na zaklade toho mi specialista vybral jeden z peti zakladnich kremu a ten muj je vhodny pro lidi, kteri citi denne stres a natlak. Neni se u me ceho divit, malo spim, hodne pracuju a do toho se staram o batole. Jestli sledujete muj youtube kanal, urcite se nebudete ani divit. A tam jsem vlastne My blend ve mych vlozich nekolikrat zminila. Ale kremy to nekonci, dale jsou vam urceny specialni boostry, ktere budou take pokazde jine. Muzete mit problemy jako rudnuti, velke pory atd. 

Nebudu vam lhat, kdyz mi prisel balicek s produkty, trosku jsem se bala, nerada ctu navody atd a musite si samy boosters do nocniho a denniho kremu namichat, aby se vse udrzelo cerstve. Ale nakonec me to bavilo a bylo to opravdu jednoduche. Nejlepsi na tom je to, ze vlastne za tri mesice se mohou me kremy zmenit, opravdu zalezi na tom co ted delate, kde zijete, pracujete, drzite dietu, spite vice ci mene atd. 

Ja jsem s kremy velmi spokojena, nejsou hutne a presto krasne hydratuji a uz vidim prvni vysledky a uplne nejvice ve velikosti poru. Ty se znatelne zmensily a kremy mi opravdu sedi. Libi se mi i baleni. Mozna nepusobi extra luxusne, ale myslim, ze jsou sik a lehke. Opravdu s radosti jsem kremy zasadila do me kazdodenni rutiny. A je to kazdopadne zajimavy koncetp, mozna uplne idealni pro ty, kteri stale jeste hledaji ten svuj vysneny krem.

Beauty: Why using facial oils can benefit your skin?

Facial oils have got so many benefits however still many people that have not tried any. To be honest I have been using them for few years but in the past I believed that oils would give me more acne and breakouts. Well, after trying out different brands I realised it is about what oil you use. There are days where I do not even touch cream and use purely oils for hydrating my skin.

And why are they so good? Well, they prevent wrinkles mainly, they hydrate, they protect and some of them can even make your pores smaller. I personally find them somehow soothing. When I was pregnant I was obsessed with oils and also I used oils during my Accutante treatment as the skin was really dry.

These would be some of my favourite facial oils and there are different reasons why I love them.

  1. Samaya Ajurveda – this oil has got definitely one of the more interesting concepts as before you purchase you need to do a test and find out what your dosha is. If you are into yoga and ajurveda this is one thing to try. I was half kapha and vata and picked this one which is more suitable vata purely based on smell preference. It is a gorgeous oil with gorgeous smell and became a big fan very quickly.
  2. Clarins Blue Orchid – Face Treatment Oil – I have been using this only shortly but even after few uses I felt a big difference in the morning. Mainly how even the skin tone was and bare in mind I would use it after a night when I had few glasses of wine. It smells very natural and very herbal base so if you like that kind of thing this is the winner.
  3. Rodial Snake Booster Oil – This is my old hero product and I still love it. This must be my third bottle and I still use this product. It helps to almost freeze expressions lines and reduce signs of ageing. It is very good before you want to apply your foundation as I do believe there is almost instant effect when it comes to fine lines. Not huge fan of the smell but everything else is top class.
  4. Pixi Rose Oil Blend – this oil improves skins elasticity and brings lot of glow. And it does deliver. I had this with me travelling and it worked wonders after full day on the sun. It does not feel greasy whilst it hydrates nicely and I love the smell so much.
  5. Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate – I started to use this product many years ago when I was going through  Accutane treatment and it is a wonderful lightweight oil. It is great for daily use, hydrates beautifully and also creates great block from all the radicals around us on a daily basis.

Let me know if any of these are familiar or perhaps there are other wonderful oils I should know about.

Olejicky na oblicej maji spoustu vyhod a presto potkavam spousty lidi, kteri by si zadny na oblicej nedali. Ja se priznam, ze pred par lety jsem mezi ne patrila. Myslela jsem si naivne, ze pouzivat oleje bude znamenat akne a mastna plet. Ale spis je to to tom najit takovy, ktery sedi vasi pleti. Dneska jsou dny, kdy si ani krem nedavam a spoleham se pouze na ruzne oleje. 

A proc jsou tak dobre. Samozrejme si musite najit ten svuj, ale vseobecne krasne hydratuji, chrani vasi plet, bojuji proti vraskam a nektere dokonce dokazi zmensit vase pory. Ja osobne je shledavam hrozne uklidnujici. Kdyz jsem byla tehotna, oleje jsem si vylozene uzivala a take jsem je ve velkem pouzivala behem Accutane lecby. Pokozka byla v te dobe opravdu extremne sucha.

Mam vyzkousene spousty ruznych oleju, ale tyhle mam momentalne hodne rada z ruznych duvodu. 

  1. Samaya Ajurveda – tento olej si vyberete na zaklade urceni vasi dosi. Pokud jste na jogu a ajurvedu a tyhle veci, urcite se na produkt podivejte. V mem testu vyslo, ze jsem napul kapha a vata. A rozhodla jsem se pro vatu jenom diky tomu, ze tento mi vonel vice. A velmi rychle jsem si ho zamilovala. 
  2. Clarins Blue Orchid – Face Treatment Oil – Tento olej mam ze vsech nejkratsi dobu, ale jsem spokojena. I pri prvnim pouziti jsem videla vysledky a to hlavne v tom, ze pokozka byla mene zarudla a to i po veceru, kdy jsem mela par sklenicek vina. A pokud mate radi vylozene bylinkove vune, bude se vam libit. 
  3. Rodial Snake Booster Oil – Tento olej pouzivam asi nejdele a je to jeden z mych nejvetsich oblibencu. Je navrzeny tak, ze ma zmirnit vrasky a zpomalit proces starnuti. Ja ho rada pouzivam, kdyz si chci udelat hodne dobry makeup. Mam pocit ze ma temer okamzity efekt a po na naneseni makeupu jsou vrasky mene vyrazne. Takovy docasny botox v lahvicce. Uprimne mi moc nesedi jeho vune, ale fakt, ze uz mam asi treti baleni asi svedci o tom, ze je dobry. 
  4. Pixi Rose Oil Blend – Pomuze vam vylepsit elasticitu pokozky a krasne ji rozzari a je to pravda. Mela jsem ho sebou na cestach a je uzasny po celem dni na slunicku. A navic krasne voni. 
  5. Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate – Tento lehky olej jsem zacala pouzivat prave v dobe, kdyz jsem prochazela lecbou accutanem. A zamilovala jsem si jej. Je prirodni, ma vytazek z korene zazvoru a nadherne hydratuje. Vasi plet chrani a vytvari skvely blok pred skodlivinami, ktere mame kolem sebe. 

Dejte mi vedet jake vy pouzivat oleje a proc a treba zrovna nektery z techto je take vas oblibenec.

Dolce & Gabbana Meets Meadow

I may not be at Amalfi Coast or beautiful Sicilian Square but I decided to bring a bit of Dolce & Gabbana wherever I go. This time to the beautiful Czech Republic. When people love a touch luxury and beautiful things it does not matter where you are you can always have that slice of cake.

Whether that is a beautiful scent or gorgeous lipstick these things should always bring the best out of you. There is just simply something about putting on a nice lipstick or blush. Even if you do not feel like it just go and do it. Perhaps you had a bad week and makeup is the last thing you are thinking about however it makes people feel better. The inside and outside are so connected so you should look after both.

I wanted to bring together the juxtaposition of Czech countryside and this beautiful makeup. I am not shooting at gorgeous Sicilian village under the sun or wearing Dolce & Gabbana flower crown but I love it anyway. I collected wild flowers around the fields and forest and created my own crown. I was shooting in my father’s vineyard and tried on several gorgeous shades of Miss Sicily lipsticks that quickly became my favourites in the last few months. They create dewy and juicy lips and still giving your lips gorgeous shade. I really feel like the most feminine fairy under the sun.

Nejsem sice ani na pobrezi Amalfi nebo krasnem starem Sicilskem namesti, ale i tak jsem se rozhodla si sebou privezt trosku Dolce & Gabbany. A tentokrat do krasneho Ceska a to primo do vinice na Moravu. Kdyz maji lide radi trosku luxusu, nezalezi na tom, kde jste, muzete si ho vzit zkratka sebou.

At uz je to krasna rtenka ci vune, tyhle veci by ve vas mely probouzet to nejlepsi. Ja mam pocit, ze na tom neco je, kdyz si natrete rty krasnou rtenkou ci nalicite lice tvarenkou. A i kdyz mate za sebou tezky tyden, zkuste si alespon dat hezkou rtenku, protoze vnitrni a vnejsi krasa jsou tak propojene. Ovlivnuji jedna druhou. A je treba se starat o oboji.

Ja jsem chtela nejak spojit krasny Dolce & Gabbana makeup s Moravskou krajinou a i kdyz nejsem na sluncem rozpalenem Sicilskem venkove, tak se mi to hrozne libi. Juxtapozice kvetinove celenky, kterou jsem si vyrobila a krasneho makeupu mi prijde krasna. Navic jsem fotografie tvorila v rodinnem vinohradu.  Chtela jsem vyzkouset krasne odstiny rtenek Miss Sicily, ktere jsem si v poslednich mesicich oblibila. Krasne hydratuji a vypadaji prirozene. Hrozne me bavi ted v lete, protoze lesklejsi a stavnatejsi rty k horkemu letu proste patri.

My new smile thanks to bonding

When I was 13 years old I walked into a casting of one of the biggest modelling agencies in Czech Republic Czechoslovak Models with dreams about a big modelling world and the owner Milada Karasova that discovered top models like Eva Herzigova told me you have all the right things young lady but you need to sort your teeth as you have gaps and it annoys photographers as there is always so much to photoshop after the shoot. I was happy but dreading braces at the same time. Imagine teenager looking at the her role model Cindy Crawford and the idea of wearing braces just wasn’t pleasing back then.

So I went to see the best orthodontist in the region and after few visits left with one of those old school braces you wear over the night. It was a relieve for me that I did not have to wear the permanent but little did I know. I got rid of the gaps but for how long? My teeth have always been straight but because of its smaller size (that is what I was told) there were small gaps and sometimes I felt optically they do not look straight as my attention used to go always to the gaps. And although it is a small thing it bothered me. It bothered me mainly when I was filming as my eyes would always go on the gaps in my teeth so now so many years later in my thirties I decided to do something about it and started to do research. And I made up my mind I wanted Invisaligns.

After doing more due diligence I realised it is not financially the cheapest thing but I wanted to have them so badly I got few quotes and tried to find a place that is going to do it cheap and well and ideally close to where I live. And I found an amazing dental practice Smile dental. I saw a work of Dr Dadashian and I liked what I saw so I booked myself for consultation and his words were like Eva you don’t need Invisaligns. I could not believe my ears as he was a first person that did not give me just another quote of 4000 £. Finally a first person that is not making my gaps bigger than they are and just trying to get lots of money out of my pocket.

He explained to me I always have the option to go for Invisaligns however that there is also a method called bonding where he simply uses technique how to model the teeth and bond them together. He showed me couple of examples and I decided to try to use it one one gap and see how I feel afterward. And guess what I loved it so I decided to have it done on all the gaps. Firstly it does not hurt, secondly it is much cheaper so you pay 120 £ per gap and it brings instant results. After creating a plan of action and three appointments later I have a new smile without gaps and pain free.

I could not be happier with the results. You know there is always advantages and disadvantages of the treatments but you have the option. If I feel I really want Invisaligns few years later I know I can still go for it but at the moment I am over the moon and so happy. I decided to share this with you as there may be so many of you having the same problem and looking for the right doctor to help you. I found mine and I can only speak highly of him. He really changed how I feel and that is what is very important.

Kdyz mi bylo 13 objevila jsem se ve zname agenture Czechoslovak models na castingu a snila o velkem svete modelingu. V hlave mela obraz tenkrat sveho idolu Cindy Crawford a s velkym odhodlanim se na casting tesila. Milada Karasova, ktera objevila napriklad top modelku Evu Herzigovou mi tenkrat rekla, ze vse dobry, ale ze mam mezery mezi zubama. No to bylo neco na trinactiletou holku, ktera mela uplne jine predstavy. Rekla mi, dej si rovnatka a prijd za dva roky.

A tak jsem se rozhodla, ze to udelam, ale predstava, ze mam permanentni rovnatka me desila. Nenecham se prece sikanovat ve skole a tak jsem se rozhodla pro takove ty klasicke stare rovnatka pres noc. Zadne terno to nebylo a mezery to do urcite miry srovnalo ale na jak dlouho? Po par letech se vse vratilo tak jak to bylo a nejak jsem si v posledni dobe rekla, ze s tim chci neco udelat. Neberte to spatne, mam zuby rovne, nebo mi to alespon rikaji zubari, jenom jsem mela par mezirek. A nejak mi to tak vrtalo hlavou a hlavne jsem mela pocit, ze to jde videt, kdyz tocim a tak jsem se rozhodla, ze zkusim Invisalign. 

A tak jsem zacala delat pruzkum, kde si je necham udelat, je to levnejsi v CR, jak bych to vubec udelala? Byla jsem v par klinikach a samozrejme jsem se snazila najit pokazde levnejsi, ale stejne dobrou variantu. Po nejake dobe jsem se rozhodla, ze chci kliniku, ktera bude i bliz k memu bytu, protoze kvuli Liamkovi a hlidani nechci nekde hodinu a pul cestovat na kazdou konzultaci. A nasla jsem skvelou kliniku Smile Dental Practice. Videla jsem praci doktora Dadashian a libilo se mi jak provadi kosmeticke upravy zubu a vubec vse.

Nemohla jsem uverit svym usim, kdyz mi po prvni konzultaci oznamil, ze zadne Invisalign nepotrebuju, ze mam proste rovne zuby a ze mu prijde zbytecni utracet pres tri tisice liber na takovem malem kosmetickem problemu a zminil se o metode bonding. Ukazal mi par prikladu a ja jsem zasla, protoze jsem o tom slysela poprve. Zubar vam zkratka vymodeluje zuby tak, ze je spoji a zbavi vas mezer. Jako vzdy ma vse sve vyhody a nevyhody, ale ja se rozhodla, ze to zkusim na jedne mezere. A po vyzkouseni jsem byla nadsena. Za prve to vubec neboli, za druhe je to mnohem levnejsi a za treti je vysledek videt ihned. Nevyhoda je, ze treba za sest let a vice si mozna budete muset zuby nechat zase upravit, ale zalezi na osobe jak se o zuby stara atd.

Ja jsem si rekla, ze to zkusim a ze kdybych se rozhodla za par let jinak, Invisaligns si muzu dat i pak. Zkratka me doktor presvedcil, ze tohle je pro me ted mnohem efektivnejsi reseni. A ja jsem nadsena. Stacily tri navstevy, zadna bolest a mezery jsou pryc.

Ted se budu smat snad jeste vice. Rozhodla jsem se napsat tento clanek, protoze mozna mate stejny problem a vubec o teto moznosti nevite. A taky se snad musim pochvalit se svym novym usmevem. LOL 

Love Glamazon xoxo
