MAISON CAULIÈRES

A few months ago I was introduced to MAISON CAULIÈRES. My first impressions based on their website were really great, I thought it was an outstanding product based solely on the descriptions of each scent. A good Illustration of a product, specially those who you cannot appreciate just by their looks, is really important. Packaging isn’t everything when it comes to perfumes, it helps a lot but still is a mystery when you purchase fragrances and cosmetics online. I had the joy to get one of their dry oils, body mist, bath oil and some other MAISON CAULIÈRES products, each of different scents. I was pleasantly astonished by the different aromas and scents, all different, all very distinctive and unique. You can expect to have an extra-sensorial experience while using them. You know what they say about aroma therapy, these products can and will relax you with their perfumes. I have to say, I trust many skin products, some are better than other but here’s the great thing about MAISON CAULIÈRES, they’re not just good, they’re fragrances, their …

CONTEXT SKIN CARE

So… many of you always ask me If i wear sunscreen. What do I do to keep my skin looking good, or if I’m taking care of it. Two months ago, and I’m a little ashamed to say it, because I have these Context products for over two months now that are waiting to be reviewed. A good instafriend of mine sent them to me, it’s a new company he said, just try them he insisted. But for me, to be able to review a skin care product you really need to use it and try it and I don’t think a week or two is enough time to determine if it is a good product. After 2 months using it almost every night, and I say almost because sometimes weekends I forget (I also forget to take my clothes off… You know what I mean…) I can tell you it is a great kit to take care of your face. I have the night cream, I use it after washing my face with the …

BEARD CARE | BROOKLYN GROOMING

So… I’ve been sporting a beard for the past… 3 years ish? At the beginning I was just letting it grow and I trimmed it once in a while but didn’t really take care of it. It was itchy at times, skin was red sometimes, specially here in Aruba when you sweat so much at the beach or when you go clubbing. I WAS USING REGULAR SHAMPOO to wash it…. I was doing it all wrong! Well, then i discovered many products for the beard and one of the best brands out there is Brooklyn Grooming. In this post I will show you parts of my ritual when it comes to take care of my beard. So, let’s get started. First you need the soap! Beard soap is not like regular soap, the recipe is a goldmine of natural, organic skin-enhancers. Hand-harvested local clay—essence of the earth itself—is infused with shea butter and a choice blend of luxurious, soothing oils. The subtle aroma is an unburdening whisper of earth, wood, flower and herb designed to gently …

These shorts are very comfortable, bro like… affordable. This indigo Panama hat by Artesano jumped at me when I was pairing this outfit and I think it looks so good. I like the gray, magenta and Indigo…. The watch also pops, this is a very colorful outfit yet is not a crazy one. I think this is one of my favorite outfits this summer… and it happened in a rush, I wasn’t planning to do it. The background is the beautiful Renaissance Island, yes… that’s the island with the flamingos, you have to stay at The Renaissance Aruba Hotel and Casino in order to access to the island. Let me know if you like this outfit. I …
