Styling Products - Unlisted Brand - L'Oreal Professionnel - Tecni Art Hot Style Iron Finish

5.0

Dec/18/2013

My favourite thermo-activated cream was Kerastase Ciment Thermique until I tried Loreal Tecni Art Hot Style Iron Finish. Apart I find Loreal is better, it is also a bit cheaper and the bottle is a bit bigger. Moreover, I need less product, so it is more economical.
But I use it a bit different rather than I used Kerstase. I dry 100% of my hair. Then I divide it in sections (5 sections …

Moisturizers - Dermalogica - Chroma white TRx Pure Night

Dec/15/2013

The most I like about this moisturiser is how my skin looks the next morning - it is brighter, awakened, and well moisturised. I'm not sure if it is reducing or lightening my freckles, may be it is still early to say but for one reason or another the skin truly looks bright and vibrant in the morning.
Also, my skin was quite dehydrated in the beginning of winter and this moisturiser …

Palettes - Urban Decay - NAKED Basics Eyeshadow Palette

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/06/2013

Probably it is one of the best combination of neutral matte eye shades that is on the market nowadays. It has such shades that can pass to anyone, no matter if you have blue, green or brown eyes. Moreover, you can create different looks from natural every day make up to smoky evening make up. I personally find this palette very practical.
The eye shadows are highly pigmented, easy to blend …

Makeup Brushes - Real Techniques - Setting Brush

Dec/02/2013

This brush is of an excellent quality, very soft and it doesn't shed. The size is perfect for applying a highlighter along the top of the cheek bones, under the eyebrows or wherever you need it, it is also good for making contouring with a bronzer. But I mostly use it for applying powder when I need it only on my T-zone and also under the eyes to set the concealer, this setting brush gives …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Murad - Acne Spot Treatment

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/26/2013

This cream works more like post-blemish treatment rather than blemish treatment for me. It doesn't reduce inflammation or minimize a breakout but accelerates the process of cell renewal. So when I apply it on the blemish instead of soothing the inflammation it speeds the development of a breakout and obviously in such a way it passes quicker. But this is definitely not the way I would like …Read more

Skincare - Face - Murad - Clarifying Mask

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/20/2013

I tried many clay-based masks of different brands and Murad Clarifying mask is my favourite now. I'm using it for the last 2 years.
I do not suffer from severe acne, I just have blemishes from time to time. And this mask reduces blemishes quite quickly comparing to other products that I've used before. When I notice that the inflammation just starts I apply the mask over clean …

Dry Shampoo - Jonathan Product - Green Rootine Dry Shampoo Brush On Hair Powder

4.0

Nov/19/2013

1. The shampoo absorbs grease quite well.
I noticed that it works best if used not on the day I would usually wash my hair but a day before it, as in this case I need less powder and the effect of washed hair anyway will stay even on the next day.
If I use it on the same day when my hair needs to be washed, it takes more time and efforts (as there is more grease to be absorbed and I …

BB Cream - Urban Decay - Naked Skin Beauty Balm

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/12/2013

I have to say I like Urban Decay products but unfortunately I was disappointed with the Beauty Balm.
I used it alone and as a primer for foundation. So here are my impressions:
IF USED ALONE it doesn't even slightly cover any imperfections and redness. But it makes the skin mat (and it stays so for about 5 hours) and there is even no need to apply powder afterwards. It also gives …

Skincare - Face - Jurlique - Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum

Nov/11/2013

I was very surprised that the gel didn't meet my expectations as I really liked its' botanical ingredient list and I had high hopes for it. I used it twice a day for about 3 months and I didn't notice it restored, tightened my skin or made it smoother.
It has a very lightweight texture and I liked to use it in summer. It hydrated enough during hot season but I wouldn't …

Treatments (Eye) - Gatineau - Melatogenine Futur Plus Advanced Anti-Aging Eye Concentrate

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/11/2013

I've used this eye concentrate for about 2 months once a day.
I have to say I don't have deep wrinkles (I'm 32) but I do have crows feet. This concentrate didn't erase the crows feet from my face but just kept them to the minimum and after few weeks the skin around my eyes became plumper. But at the same time I can not say it made a very visible lifting effect.
As …
