Gels/Soaps -The Body Shop - Sweet Lemon Shower Gel

I got a small size(20-30ml) as a gift and have to say i hate the smell. It reminds me of a dishwashing liquid! Luckily it's only small and my boyfriend likes the smell so it's not a problem to use it. I could take this on a trip with me but would never ever pay anything from this. Apart from the smell, this gel is really nice. Foams nicely and doesn't dry out skin too much.
Moisturizers -The Body Shop - Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream

Very light but moisturizes still vell. I have a combination skin and a bit oily as well so i don't need anything heavy. Smell is quite nice too. But there's nothing extraordinary about this. I've been using many as good gel-style creams as this. I don't know what i'm expecting but this is something that is just okay. I could still buy it again cause it did its work. Nothing special.
Mascara -Kanebo - Sensai Mascara 38 C (Volumising)

I had heard a lot of both good and bad opinions about this. I bought mine from a sale where it came with a small sensai chief sponge. First removing this was like hell. No matter what temperature the water was the mascara just stayed. But with the chief sponge removing it was easy and after few times of using this, i learned how to remove it without the sponge, which in my opinion is the most stupid invention ever. A regular dish cloth would do the dame thing! The mascara itself was really good and i liked it was after a practice easy to remove.
In general, i'm not into Ella Bache's products and usually what i've been looking their ingredients, there's a lot of mineral oils which at least makes me break out. My cosmetician uses EB's products so i have experiences few of their products. Anyways i decided to try this out without any experience from this. I have to admit it really is quite a good scrub. The grains are really small. I believe this might be too effective for a sensitive skin but mine can handle this pretty well. It leaves skin really smooth and removes dead skin. Package is small but you only need a little of this so it's gonna last long. The price at least in here is a bit too salty, like 25e or something and for that price, you can find other good scrubs.
Big brush which is a plus for me. When you start to use it, it feels like you'd have to apply dozens of layers before it's visible. But at some point it strangely starts to behave like a normal mascara and you need just a few layers of it. Also the smell isn't too nice. But gives you quite nice lashes so i would buy another one if on sale. A bit too pricey in here if the price is normal(Like 35e).
Tinted Moisturizer -Pixi - illuminating tint & conceal

Very light and easy to blend. How ever quite glittery and tho it doesn't make you look like a disco ball, the glitters are visible. Concealer is handy but it had oils in it which makes my skin break out. Packaging gets dirty easily and all the dirt are really visible in it which makes it look disgusting. Overall i didn't like this and it was hard to use it.
Moisturizers -Derma E - Vitamin A Wrinkle Treatment Moisturizing Gel

This is very much like one of my all time favourite gel's from pharmacy but with anti aging properties. Needless to say i didn't notice any. Still, i like this gel. The bottle is huge and not very expensive. I have very sensitive acne prone skin and this didn't cause any breakouts like many many creams and gels do. I'm not quite sure if i'd buy it again. They don't sell this brand in here and i think im not going to order only this from abroad because this is no miracle :D Anyhow i can recommed to this to everybody who has sensitive skin. Very nice gel indeed.
Made my lashes thicker and separated them quite well too but it flaked on mee soooo badly i had to stop using it. I had to wipe my under eye area nearly all the time. So i'd say this is quite basic thickening mascara, doesn't do miracles or anything. Wouldn't buy again because of the flaking. Also it's too expensive in here, like 15e. So expensive for the quality.
I have quite mixed feelings towards this and i tried it originally because of many good recommendations but no one mentioned that vanilla/rose smell. Yes smell! First it was quite nice but the more i used it the more i started to hate it. The consistency is a bit waxey but it's easy to apply all the same. It's not bad lip balm i just hate the smell. So i wouldn't buy it again. Ever.
Cleansers -Derma E - Vanilla Bean Cleansing Mousse

The only thing that really bothered me with this product was the awfull, over sweet and overpowering vanilla scent. Smell would me more prober word for it. It didn't smell like real vanilla need i say. Because of the smell i wouldn't repurchase tho it was gentle and cleansed my face well.
I got this product as well but not from bzz agent ^^; Anyway i feel this didn't do anything to my eyes and i'd never pay from this. The vibrating head was sort of nice at first but then i just forgot it and used only the cream. Also the inci is not anything too special and there are thoudands of creams like this so i'd rather buy some cheap wall mart brand.
Deodorants -Nivea - Calm & Care 24h Anti-perspirant Roll-On

Overall a good, working product. Nice smell, not too strong. Does the job well. If you like Nivea's deo's, you'll presumably like this one too.
This is quite rough scrub so you need to be gentle with this. It may easilly feel that you're scrubbing your face off. Smells nice. I don't thinkt it's good if you have really sensitive skin.
It has a light grassy smell and it really bothered me. Also it didn't mattify my skin very well or the effect didn't last too long. It didn't moisturize that well either so i can't resommed.
I honestly can't understand all the hype about this product. It's okay scrun but there's loads of same kinds of scrubs. Luckily it isn't too pricey otherwise i woudn't recommed this. If you want some good basic scrub this might be worth a try.
