Yes, this was once Beauty with Love

11/29/2014


But with time...we change. I changed.And so had to change the blog's name. 
Beauty with Love was an escape and a place where I would put my efford to grow and be as happy as possible. RandomlyDi is meant to be the same.

For those who are curious, RandomlyDi stands for just being me, Diana - Di for my friends. 
The post will be the same. Every time will be same. (except for the name and layout...which I decided to change again...I kinda like how it is now...Although I might do more changes in the future). 
So, I hope that you guys will keep...being the same? 
I know I haven't been posting as much...I've said too many times how school has been stressfull - it is. But no, I won't give up on my corner. I like too much for that. I work too hard for that. 

I just wanted to give this small note before people get scared. Oh and if you used to follow me on Bloglovin, I would ask you to follow me again here  since I had to "reclaim" this blog...

Take care everyone, I'll be working on more posts for December, don't worry!

With Love,
Diana.

P.S. I had to re-install disquss...so pretty much every-single comment went away. Not nice. 

Effaclar Duo+ | Review

11/23/2014





Guess who's back? (or should I say, got time to write a post)
Everyone know how much I love the Effaclar duo from the La Roche Posay...so you can imagine how I felt when I got to know that they reformulated this baby. Here are my impression and comparison to the original.

So, Effaclar duo+ is meant to work just like the original one but with the added benefit of also taking care of marks and scars. If there's something I'm always struggling with is marks. Ugly, red marks. That and occasional spots that appear when I'm more stressed - there's no point in mentioning that I've been like that for the past week or so right?.
So, when I'm dealing with that (along side with the rest of my skin care task force ) I like to use this guy. On bad days I double it by wearing at night and in the morning, but on regular I just use him in the mornings. I can see how the formula is better - My marks and spots go away more quicker than before.
The packaging is the same as before, and I'm happy with that because I always liked how sleek this tube was because It's easier to take him with me whenever I go out for the weekend or vacation. It's also easy to control the quantity of product that we want to use. 
But the best part is for sure the new texture : the older one was more "watery" which meant that it was prone to leaking...actually that's exactly what happened to my last tube of the regular effaclar duo...the thing wouldn't spot leaking for nothing and when I realized the whole product was now living on the cap. Because this one has a more consistent texture, that doesn't happen at all. 
Also, this will probably live longer compared to the other tubes because of that. Overall, I'm really happy with this product and I can't wait to try out their new toner - which has AHA and BHA. 
And again - this is the European version! There is an American version with contains  benzoyl peroxide instead of salicylic acid. So you need to be careful when searching for this. I've seen some people reacting badly to this product because they were allergic to salicylic acid - for instances if you are allergic to Aspirin, there's a huge change that you'll be allergic to salicylic acid.

Take care everyone!
With Love,
Diana.


Mizon Hyaluronic Acid 100 Serum | Review

11/15/2014







Finally, finally! I finally got a free week to take of blog posts! College is taking so much of my time and effort, but things are going nicely. In many levels.
Anyway, here's my review about one of the newest products I got from my Korean Beauty Haul. Let me tell you, this is probably the coolest item I got. Everyone knows already how crazy I am with skin care and taking my routine to another level. After hearing a lot of raves about Hyaluronic Acid and how good it is to moist  - hello, that's exactly what my dehydrated skin needs - and retain water in our skin. Usually people try to get Hydraluron from Indeed Labs but...that's kinda expensive and hard to get because it's only available at boots (and their international shipping is...crazy).
One day, while doing my usual search around Korean Beauty online shops...I found this serum. I never heard of Mizon before but after a quick search ( Thanks Google) I found out that it actually has really good products and reputation. It didn't take too much for me to get this as soon as possible. 

This comes in a glass bottle, which initially had a cap and the dispenser on a side - I guess it's to prevent problems in terms of bacteria and everything. It's really simple and easy to take out the product , a simple squeeze is enough . 
After that, I like to rub the serum - which has watery, but somehow jelly as well (?) texture - around the palms of my hands and tap it on my face until I feel that it's all skin in and my skin is ready to receive the moisturiser. Then I apply my usual night moisturiser and...it's amazing. 

I can feel my skin nourished and the moisturiser working better because of it. I use this mainly at night after bed and let me tell, in the morning I don't look too scary as I used to because of this. I've also seen - not sure why - and improvement in terms of scars fading. My skin texture is softer and I'm nothing but happy with this product. 
Not only I want to get a backup, I also want to try their AHA serum, which looks amazing to add as my exfoliating serum. I got my from Jolse , here for 15,98$, which is like, half of what I would pay for Hydraluron. If you are looking for something like that, give this one a try!

Take care everyone, have a nice day!

With Love,
Diana.  

Lovie Dovie from Essie

11/13/2014






Probably, the prettiest pink nail polish I ever got. And the best.
I finally got the chance of extending my Essie collection and I ha to show you lovie dovie. It's a pink shade, with a blue undertone. 
In therms of application, their new brush - yes there's a new one apparently - is great because I don't end up with nail polish were I shouldn't. Also, it doesn't take too much to dry and it only chipped after 6 days. A victory considering that I didn't use a top coat. 

So yes, today's post is really little. The next one will be bigger I promise. 
Take care.

With Love,
Diana. 

October Favourites '14

11/05/2014









Finally! Monthly Favourites...
So, before anyone asks "where's the Halloween look" the deal is...I had too much work and zero time an patience to do it. I tried, but the shoots were horrible and I'm not going to present something that I'm not comfortable with. I'm sorry, but I won't. But, I'll try to do an Autumn inspired look. I won't promise anything, specially when I have tone of work, assignments and tests to do. But I'll survive.
Second, what do you think about the new look? It was and still is , a work in progress. I got inspired by Gh0stparties look (and before anyone says "oh you're coping " I e-mailed her asking about if she thought that it was too much and that I would be more than willing to do change if it was necessary and Kate, who is the sweetest girl, said it was okay to be inspired. And even complimented my photos - yes I jumped like a little kid. But I don't care. It made my day)

Now...favourites. I'll be sincere, I didn't tried out too much makeup, mostly because there wasn't much time. My daily routine consisted in concealing, doing my brows, setting and lipsticks. But Skin Care kept the same...with the exception of some new things. 
Lime Crime's Centrifuchsia is a good pick-me-up lipstick, specially for crazy days were I don't have too much time to spend on my eyeliner or that kind of thing. It's super pigmented and easy to wear.
In therms of Skin Care, there were two items added to my routine recently and they deserve a spot. The Mizon Hyaluronic Acid Serum is the bomb. If you are looking for a serum with hyaluronic acid that helps you with moisture, you need to try this one. I'll be sure to review it during this month.
And the Etude House Real Art Cleansing Oil in Light was a happy finding. It's lighter than the The Body Shop cleansing oil. I'll probably update to the Moisture version during December and January but, I can see this one to be a good choice too. My only concern is it's citric smell. Don't worry, I'll be reviewing it as well. 
And keeping the Etude House theme, the Drawing eyebrow pencil is so good. The best I've tried so far and I'm really happy with it, specially because it stays on it's own for the longest time. Yes, I'm happy. 

And finishing with concealers, you all know why I love the Maybelline Fit me Concealer - easy to apply and leaves a good look. Now, paired with the SkinFood Dark Circles concealer - a perfect duper to the Benefit Erase Paste - it's even better. This duo has been taking care of my dark circles during the all month.
And to take care of my spots, there's nothing like the Aritaum Full Cover concealer, which made me rethink about getting the Full Cover from MUFE, since it's so good and I don't have a special need for another one. It can look cakey ,but nothing that a good thermal water won't help. 

Lastly but not least, the Holika Holika Cotton Pore Primer is the best primer I ever tried, It's not "silicony" and yet, took care of my pore without issues and smells so good. I'm currently thinking about getting the mist/setting set and the bb cream from this line soon because of how good it is. 

So here are my favourites, thank you very much for reading. 
I'll be working on a few posts during this month too, including wishlists and gift ideas. 
Take care everyone, have a nice day!

With Love,
Diana.
