As I promised a few days ago on my Instagram stories, I am going to review the new product by Vichy, the Mineral 89, which is a moisturiser that Hydrates, Plump and Fortifies the skin.
Here are some facts about the Mineral 89:
– It contains 15 essential minerals which are required for a healthy looking skin. It can be used by all skin types (normal/combination skin and oily skin) by persons of all ages and also men as a skin Health Booster!
– You can either use this product in conjunction with other products or else it can be used alone.
– It removes skin dullness which is caused by daily factors like pollution, stress and fatigue.
– One of its main ingredients is Hyaluronic Acid, a chemical which is already produced by our body to maintain moisture levels, which unfortunately by various environmental factors around us, this might not be enough. Applying Hyaluronic acid, will help the skin not to reduce moisture. To give you a picture how strong and effective Hyaluronic Acid is; 1 gram of Hyaluronic Acid is equivalent to 6 litres of water! So imagine what can it do for your skin…
– Another thing about the Mineral 89 is that it does not contains any Parabens and it is alcohol free.
Following is a guide of how you can use your Mineral 89.
Texture: Rich, 2 pumps is all you need for your face and neck. Easy to blend into skin.
Result: My skin looks fresh and not greyish dull.
Tip: When I am planning to do makeup, I apply it around 15minutes before, and I can notice that my makeup won’t break since it keep my skin highly moisturised.
Price: For the quality of the product, I say that price is very good and won’t get you broke, and if you are new to skin care or maybe still a student, it is very affordable and due to its rich texture it lasts long.

I love having a wardrobe full of clothes, I love having my Makeup Stash all full and buying the same shade of red lipstick from every makeup brand that exists. Well I also love food… I mean who doesn’t?!
I was invited to try the new fall menu by Hard Rock Cafe – Infused With Love. I visited the Hard Rock Cafe situated at the Valletta Waterfront.
So first I decided which cocktail I will get, and I opted for the Rock House Punch. As usual, I couldn’t decide what am I going to eat… I mean if I can whenever I go somewhere to eat I taste everything.. But that is not possible 😛
I had to choose between The Whiskey Bacon Jam Sliders, Southern BBQ Sliders or Crispy Chicken Sliders. I ordered The Whiskey Bacon Jam Sliders. While waiting for my food, I could enjoy my cocktail with some view. The Rock House Punch is a combination of Light Rum, Dark Rum, a blend of Tropical Juices and Sparkling Ginger Beer.
And now its the time to show you my food! Well you can only look, but you can’t take or touch.. if you want drive yourselves to Hard Rock!
While I enjoyed my Whiskey Bacon Jam Sliders, by other half was digging into his Crispy Chicken Sliders. I tasted them both, and in my opinion I prefer the Whiskey Bacon Jam Sliders. Then again I am a Bacon lover, and I will choose Bacon over chicken. I really liked the way the Crispy Chicken Sliders are cooked, with that golden colour and even though crispy, yet not dry. The Whiskey Bacon Jam Sliders are very juicy, and the jam is super tasty!
You can all try the Hard Rock Cafe Infused With Love Menu, before it lasts! You can visit Hard Rock Cafes at Baystreet Complex, St Julians, at the Valletta Waterfront or while killing time waiting for your flight at the Malta International Airport.
Share with me a photo of you while enjoying any of these sliders for a chance to be featured on Style Syco’s Instagram Stories.
I have a question for you.. ‘Who can possibly live without their phone?’
Ok.. So if you can, you can just close this window and stop reading, but I know that there is only one in a million chance that someone will actually say ‘Yes!’.
So our phone is one of our basic needs.. for everything.. I mean it even reminds us when our period is due! I see it also as an accessory.. all that glam and stuff even when it comes to phone accessories like cases, chargers and even a ring so you can comfortably have good grip of your phone when taking selfies.
Velvet Caviar is an online shop for phone accessories. As a stylist I am always cautions that my case is stylish and sometimes I even change it to go better with an outfit I am wearing. In this post I am going to show you some of my favourite stylish picks from Velvet Caviar.

For those who have been following me, for sure by now you know that I live for the sun. Honestly, if I can find a job where it let me take all Summer off, I would not think twice. Unfortunately as much as I enjoy the sun, I have to admit, that it brings lots of health risks, and therefore I try to inform myself as much as possible so that I have full protection for my skin.
Thanks to La Roche-Posay I got the opportunity to review a couple of sun products from La Roche-Posay and in the process I learned about the health issues that the sun can cause. Skin cancers are the only type of cancers which can be seen with the naked eye, and therefore one must pay a visit immediately to their dermatologist, if a potentially dangerous mole is noticed.
These are the following La Roche-Posay products that I reviewed:
Anthelios XL SPF 50+ Wet Skin Gel Texture
Anthelios XL SPF 50+ Tinted Dry Touch Gel Cream
Anthelios XL 50+ Non-Perfumed Dry Touch Gel Cream
Posthelios After Sun Antioxidant Hydra Gel
The Anthelios XL SPF 50+ Wet Skin Gel Texture is my favourite from these four products. It is waterproof and I like the fact that it does not leave any white marks. I also like its smell, which is not that of a traditional sunblock, but more refreshing.
These two sun products are the Anthelios XL 50+ Tinted Dry Touch Gel Cream and the Non-Perfumed Dry Touch Gel Cream. The main difference between these two products is that one can give you a tint to your face, with a matte finish. Its called Airlicium Technology will control all sources of shine like sweat and dirt caused during the day on our skin. It can be used as an everyday makeup base. Both suncreams can be used around the eye area and are ideally for sun sensitive skin. Personally I think one should own both, because since we are having excessive hot days, it is not a good excuse not to use sunblock so that one can apply makeup. Also for makeup free days one can opt for the Non-Perfumed Dry Touch Gel Cream.
The Posthelios After Sun Antioxidant Hydra Gel can be used for both face and body. It is very refreshing. I store it in the fridge and after a day in the sun its the gives your skin the best sensation after a shower or bath while keeping your body moisturised for 48 hours.
Also something for all of you, when buying 2 Anthelios XL Products you will get this free cooler!
A few weeks ago I received another 3INA PR Box, and this time it was filled with Eyeliners. Different types of Eyeliners which will give anyone all the drama they want in their eyes!
In my box I found:
– The Dot Pen Eyeliner
– The Glitter Eye Pencil
– The 2in1 Pen Eyeliner
– The Glossy Eye Pencil
– The Matte Pen Eyeliner
– An Applicator (to get the best shape when applying the wing!)
What I love about these eyeliners is that they are highly-pigmented and waterproof. The long-last a lot and I always go home with my eyeliner the same way I went out with it. My favourite ones from the collection are the Matte Pen Eyeliner because of its fine pen and the 2in1 Pen Eyeliner, which I love how the shape of my eyeliner comes out and also how easy it is to apply.
A few weeks ago I found in my mailbox a gift from Cocoa Locks. A milk shake that contains ingredients which helps in strengthen our hair and grow longer and healthier. The main ingredients which help in hair growth are Biotin, Zinc and Selenium.
Take Cocoa Locks Chocolate Hairshake once a day. Add two teaspoons of Cocoa Locks to a mug and add 140ml of hot water. One can add also milk. Per serving contains only 26 calories and its vegetarian and gluten free.
I love its taste. It is not too sweet and its simply delicious.
Lately my hair became very strong and also looks glossy, but not in a greasy way. A good thing about this product is that its made of natural ingredients and you do not have to stay popping pills into your system. You can enjoy healthy hair and a cup of cocoa at the same time.
Photo 1 is before I started drinking Cocoa Locks and Photo 2 is after 1 month. One can notice a fuller look. I am still drinking Cocoa Locks Hairshake and I will keep updating you on my Instagram Stories with my results.
Also I couldn’t help not sharing with you the new pink packaging from Cocoa Locks!

This is my first article featuring and reviewing Vichy products. The first two products I am going to write about are a cleanser and a moisturiser from the Normaderm range. These two products are essentials in our daily skin care routine.
Deep Cleansing Purifying Gel
This gel textured cleanser purifies the skin from the dirt gathered from our surrounding and environmental factors. This product contains Salicylic Acid, which is Acne’s biggest enemy. It acts by dissolving the dirt on our skin, the same dirt which clogs our pores and which put the skin at the risk of Acne. It keeps the skin from getting blackheads and whiteheads. It also contains Totarol which protects our skin from free radicals. Free radicals are factors which to put it in a simple way, harm our skin and they are something abnormal for our skin, for example UV Rays. The ingredient Eperuline acts as an anti-irritation agent and it contains anti-inflammation properties.
My opinion – I liked this cleanser. It leaves the skin looking fresh and feeling clean. It is also a great makeup remover. It literally dissolves makeup and leaves no residue. Its smell is very natural.
Apply every morning and night as part of your daily skin care routine.
Correcting Anti-Blemish Care 24hr Hydration
The product which takes care of the major imperfections caused in our skin, imperfections which sometimes we do not have control on. It contains Salicylic Acid and also LHA (Lipo Hydroxy Acid). It contains renewing and acne treatment properties. Its texture is really light, and it won’t leave your face feeling greasy. It is also a good makeup base. Apply on clean face.
My opinion – Applying this product one day after another, I can see the difference. I can notice that my skin has equal shine. It is also a good moisturiser.
I think the first step to treat acne, is prevention. Prevention reduces the risks. Also if you suffer from Acne, it is good to take good care of your skin and making sure that it is always clean and giving it, its necessary vitamins, meaning good skin care products.
My overall opinion – I liked these products. Even though they do not have a fragranced smell, still I think they smell fresh and very delicate. My favourite thing about the cleanser is that it highly dissolves makeup. My favourite thing about the moisturiser is that I could see change in my skin and also I said this before about another Vichy moisturiser, its like putting a highlighter on. It glows your skin!
You can find Vichy products in local pharmacies.
