Just 1 more sleep to hit the beginning of 2017 and I can’t believe with my own eyes that this year went so quick as a splash of light and when it comes to beauty side, I learnt a lot on more of natural skin care and saying No! No! to sulphates and parabens. Having completed 2 years of blogging, it totally transformed my way of thinking about beauty and each day has been such a learning curve from blogging and also, from the great friendly bloggers too and so, on this occasion, I want to thank all supporting bloggers who gave me tremendous strength to keep going with the good work. With talk aside, let me jump into the best of 2016 beauty – part 1 and so, roll up your sleeves and stay tuned!

Skin care is the most important ritual that I followed religiously twice a day all throughout the year non-stop and it really paid off well leaving my skin extremely supple and having a healthily balanced skin at the same time. Meanwhile, I would sincerely recommend anyone to invest in some good skin care essentials as it is such a game changer.

First of all, let me start with Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant which is such a real multi-tasker that one should have. Whether as a face mask or in-flight moisturiser, this is one miracle product that acts a skin barrier that can be used for all kinds of season.

To be honest, as Valentine’s day is just around the corner, I’m so intrigued with all of the iconic perfume collections and if you are a regular reader of my blog, you might have noticed that I’ve tested and tried Cartier Baiser Vole Lys Rose recently.

Besides too, this aromatherapy staple is the one that I’m pretty much indulged with excellence lately. Girls! I can’t wait to share it with you and hence, stay tuned!

What’s the hype about oriental fragrance?

It is the bond where it connects east meets west as the simplicity of the floral power when it is combined with the sweetness of the fruits makes it ideal to work with the earthy woody flavours to the end. That is why oriental fragrances are quite unique.

Estee Lauder Intuition:

Unlike other oriental fragrances, intuition is a modern representation of the oriental scent without affecting the ethical classic scented notes. Here, the floral, fruity and woody flavours are interpreted in the form of warmth, femininity and sensuality which can bring a luminous effect instantly. Now, let’s move onto the notes:

  • Top Notes – bergamot, mandarin, orange and grapefruit
  • Heart Notes – rose, gardenia petals and freesia
  • Base Notes – amber, accord and precious woods

Few more features:

The packaging of the bottle is designed beautifully with some added few elite details where the bottle itself comes a translucent, rectangular bottle plus, the sides of the bottle is striped artistically for quintessential gripness and lastly, the easy-to-use gold spray top comes in so handy while in use. Next, moving along to its application, a few squirts are well enough to keep the aroma to linger around your body all day long.

Price tag:

Currently, it is trading at £50 for a 50ml bottle, which I think it is not too pricey to handle as every 10ml worths a price of £10. If you want to reach this perfume in shops, then your nearest stockists would be Boots and Harvey Nichols.
