Toners -Paula's Choice - Moisture Boost Hydrating Toner

When I searched this products on MUA to write my review I was suprised at the low rating this product received. Admittingly, I'm sure there are many similar products from other brands that will do their job just as well but there is nothing wrong with this product. It does what I want it to do and that is remove the last bits of dirt and make-up from my face after I've used the cleanser. And it does that very well. Keeping my skin feeling soft and clean.
Cleansers -Paula's Choice - Moisture Boost One Step Face Cleanser

I have combination/oily skin with some spots and blemishes and found this product to be great for my skin! I know this cleanser is for dry skin but most products for oily skin make my face red and irritated and leave my skin feeling dry. This product is perfect and makes my skin feel very soft. Sometimes it irritates slightly on some parts of my face but this stops once I have used the matching toner. Blemishes have gotten a lot less since I started using this products twice daily (in combination with the toner) so much that people I know have commented on it and asked me what I used. So thumbs up for this PC cleanser ;) About the price: bought in the US it is cheap but the EU shop is a lot more expensive, nearly twice as much and when you try to order from the US shop the charge $50 for postage!
Skincare - Body -Unlisted Brand - Shea Butter-100% Pure, Raw

For a while now I have been slowly trying to change my beautyproducts to more natural and organic products. Thats how I found out about shea butter and I bought 2 tins of raw unrefined Ugandan shea butter. This products smells horrible and I can't seem to get used to it. The reason I am still very excited about it is because it makes my skin so supersoft! You just take a bit from the tin and put it in the palm of your hand, rub it untill it warms up and becomes an oil. Use this oil for any dry part of your body or just put it all over your body as a body lotion. I have quite dry skin on my legs and used this products and my skin was really supersoft. In the morning I rub it on my hands aswell and it keeps my hands soft throughout the entire day without having to reapply. Eventhough its really cold outside here, normally making my hands very dry, and eventhough I wash my hands many times during the day, especially when cooking. Absolutely amazing! To get back to the smell; I apply this in the morning on my hands and after a long day and handling garlic in my hands when cooking I still fainly smelled the shea butter at the end of the day!

I hardly ever buy make-up products again as I love trying out new things but this one I am definately going to buy again! Love this powder. It does not make me break out or look caked. I use this over my L'Oreal True Match liquid foundation.

I got this mascara as a present with so I dont know the price so I cannot judge if it is worth the costs. This mascara is one of my favorites, the packaging is nice and pretty and the brush is simple with short 'hairs'. It applies easy and does not smudge a lot. If the price is reasonable I would buy this again.
