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.

Beauty: Current Favourites

It is April and I totally fell in the game of trying new beauty products and new fragrances. Perhaps new obsession ?

I would never say I would be this kind of girl but these days I love wearing fragrances depending on my mood, outfit or occasion. Few years ago I was one fragrance kind of girl and I would have one favourite thing of each whether that would be face cream, serum or anything beauty related. The only exception would be lipsticks. I have always had a thing for lipsticks. LOL

I have been in love with Armani Prive fragrances and became totally mad about Rose Alexandrie scent. I also wanted to try a different version of one of my all time favourites perfume – Alien and got this Alien Oud Majestuex. Also recently I started to use this Kiehl’s oil that I have had for some time but I feel my skin is very dehydrated to so trying to hydrate it as much as I can.

After hearing only good stuff about this affordable L’oreal detox mask I decided to give it a go and it is honestly so good. So if you are not keen to splurge on a face mask this will do a job and you do not have to spend too much. I loved how the skin felt afterwards.

And last but not least I wanted to mention this amazing product you may have seen in one of my previous videos. I talk about it a lot in the video however the whole routine is meant to help you with issues like pigmentation, wrinkles or acne scaring. The skin roller has got lot of micro needles that break your skin and it forces the skin to renew faster and also absorb the serum much faster than usual. I love using it so much and although I have not used it long enough I can see improvement each morning. The skin looks fresh, bright and glowing so there is definitely something about it. It quickly became part of my routine and I love the whole process. And there is also one product that deserves a mention and that is their whitening system which exceeded my expectation. I have been using the same thing I was buying from my dentist but i find it less harsh for my teeth and you only have to wear it one hour a day. And the results are immediate.

Je duben a ja mam nejak pocit, ze jsou totalne vklouzla do nove dimenze a strasne me bavi zkouset nove produkty. Nikdy bych nerekla, ze me to takhle chytne za srdce, ja clovek ktery kdysi miloval jenom jeden parfem, jeden krem a vse po jednom. Kazdopadne ted miluju objevovat nove veci, stridat parfemy podle nalady, outfitu apod. 

A chtela jsem sdilet par veci, ktere me v posledni dobe bavi a nemuzu se jich nabazit. Zacnu asi parfemy a prvni je naprosto neskutecna vune Rose Alexandrie Armani Prive. Armani Prive vune me doslova posadily na zadek a tato je na jaro jako delana. A druhou novinkou, ktera me ted na jare bavi je trosku jina verze meho oblibeneho Alien. Klasika od Muglera patri mezi me top parfemy a tento s nazvem Alien Oud Majestuex je prijemnou zmenou. 

Jelikoz mam v posledni dobe o dost sussi plet, tak se snazim hydratovat, hydratovat a hydratovat a k tomu mi ted dost pomaha tento olej od Kiehl’s. A jelikoz jsem slysela jenom samou chvalu na tuhle masku od Lorealu, musela jsem ji vyzkouset. A je opravdu vyborna, takze pokud nechcete utrati majlant za dobrou pletovou masku, tohle je skvela volba. 

A v neposledni rade jsem chtela zminit produkt, o kterem jsem mluvila i v tomto videu. Pred par tydny mi znacka Swiss Clinic poslala tento derma roller a take serum a byla jsem nejdrive skepticka, ale rekla jsem si, ze to vyzkousim a zatim jsem spokojena. Na valecku mate takove male mikro jehly a ty vam vlastne propichaji pokozku, ktera ma pak tendenci se rychleji obnovovat a diky tomu i absorbuje serum a vse co si aplikujete po rolovani mnohem rychleji. Nepouzivam produkt jeste tak dlouho, ale kazdopadne kazde rano vypada pokozka sveze a zarive. Hrozne me bavi delat cely proces. Doufam, ze mi to pomuze na me problemy jako zacinajici vrasky a pigmentace.
