Beauté diary: vacation in Bahia


After 10 (such wonderful) days on vacation in Bahia, I thought it would be nice to share a few beauté things I liked to use there. For starters, the hair accessories:


Context: I am trying to spend some time with chemically straighten my hair, because it was falling too much so I decided to give it some time to breathe. I cannot remember when was the last time I was so long without doing it, my roots are super long, in London I developed a super nice way to tame the beast (hahaha) – I will talk about it in a another post very soon -, but in the beach, as you can imagine, there was no way to do it! I did’t even try to controle it or to do the blow-dry the front + use a curling iron on the tips combo, which is how I like my hair, because it would be a waste of time and work… So I wore a lot of hair accessories, hats, scarfs, embellishments… On the photos above: the hat I bought in a small shop in Italy (Topshop sunglasses), the shawl is by Missoni (Ray Ban sunglasses), the scarf is vintage (Livo sunglasses) and the flower crown I got from my sister as a Christmas present, its brand is Can-Can.

There is a TV Beauté here with tips on how to wear and tie a scarf, but I also filmed a short video on Instagram while in Bahia that you can watch here!

Now the products I loved to use (I didn’t took “just” this, but I decided to choose the ones that, for any reason, stood out the most!)


I like to wear creamy products at the beach, especially blush, bronzer and illuminator. I also like to wear very little makeup on! I swapped the normal foundation for this one that gives a tan, but is very light, Guerlain Terracotta Skin. I loved the new Sisley Illusion d’Eté, a bronzer with a thin consistency and in that cream-powder hybrid style, you can apply it with the fingers and it looks very natural, and for blush I took 3 creamy and pink ones: one by Make Up For Ever, one by Chanel and one by Nars in a stick. From Nars I also brought the illuminator in Copabana and, to finish the skin, a light concealer YSL Touche Éclat.
For the eyes I especially loved to go for a blue eyeliner with It Line and blue lashes with It Lash, both by Dior – it’s subtle, but it gives a very pretty and summery effect. And for the lips, my two favorites from this trip were the pinky gloss-lipstick Smashbox Be Legendary Lip Lacquer in Pout, for the night, and the Dior Addict Lip Glow balm, one of my new additions! It leaves the lips slightly pink and moisturizes super well.

It’s good to have a mix of firming moisturizers, to give that boost to your body, and other ones very nutritious to use after taking sun. I confess I forgot to bring an after-sun, but I used a lot this HealGel Body I bought in London, that is light but potent! Another lifesaver for more dry/damaged areas is Lucas Papaw Ointment, that I also used as a lip balm. As an enhancer product I really liked Valmari Corpore Creme Triple Action, that I brought to test at the beach, and the lifelong love Legology Air-Lite (I spoke about ithere). And the This Works Skin Deep Golden Elixir, is a great hybrid between a treatment and an enhancer, since it has golden particles that illuminate the skin.

Aesop product trio to cleanse, tone and moisturize that I am loving – Fabulous Face Oil (this year I will write the post about my love for facial oils, I promise! Hahaha), Amazing Face Cleanser and Bitter Orange Astringent Toner, the last two indicated for oilier skin and my choices to balance out the skin during Summer. And, of course, my always so loved thermal water by LaRoche Posay!

Another very important category: the chosen products for the traditional pre-NYE beauté day! I’ve said here that the name of the blog came up by te time me and my friends did, still very young, a beautifier ritual on the 31st of January to start well the new year! And I keep this tradition until today, of course.

On the face I did a scrub + clay mask also with two Aesop products, Purifying Facial and Parsley Seed Cleansing Mask,to leave the skin very smooth, and while I let it work I used these Eyeko Hydrogel eye patches. On the body I used 3 products to leave the skin a bit more tanned (as far as possible, lol) and very illuminated: Prtty Peaushun (I spoke about it here), which is a cream, The Body Shop Honey Bronze, which is an oil, and Benefit Bathina, which is a balm that only illuminates, but without the shimmer particles like the other two.

I couldn’t leave my sunscreen beauty bag out, of course!! ! People I don’t use all of this at the same time, but I think it’s always good to bring because there is a husband, my parents, brother and sister, friends that sometimes asked to borrow!! In any way, my thoughts are: the strongest on the face and décolletage, always, and on the body I start with the strong ones and eventually, if I stay for a few days and get some color, I start decreasing, I end up using a SPF 15 on the legs and arms, for example.

Heliocare SPF 90
Roc Minesol SPF 30, 40 and 80
Avène Stick for sensitive areas SPF 50

Neutrogena Sun Fresh SPF 60 (I had also a SPF 30 that didn’t make it to the photo)
Sol de Janeiro Posto Protect Starfruit Sunscreen Spray SPF 30
Lancaster Sun Beauty Silky Milk SPF 15
Soleil des Iles Huile au Monoi SPF 15
+ Protective Spray Kérastase Soleil

And to end the post, I share three photos of beautiful landscapes from the trip… Espelho Beach, the view from the house we rented at the Outeiro das Brisas condo and the view from the walk we did from Espelho to Caraíva – three hours walking, but it’s totally worth it! You just need to keep re-applying the sunscreen hahaha
