Shampoo - AVEDA - Shampure Shampoo

So I was really excited to try this shampoo along with the conditioner. And rightly so because it's the most expensive ones I have tried in my life. But it's been a letdown. I know this shampoo is more natural, but I have tried a couple of other natural shampoos that did a fine job at cleansing my hair thoroughly. I have thick, long hair and a lot of it so perhaps this works fine for …Read more

Moisturizers - Pixi - pHenomenal Gel

I bought this right after it came out and I was expecting to really like this one, but I kinda dislike it. The consistency is kinda sticky and my skin doesn´t completely absorb it, thus leaivng some sort of sheen over my face which I really hate. It does moisturise, though I can´t vouch for any Ph balancing effects. I´m not that deep into skincare that I make the effort to find out.
Besides …

Cleansers - Farmacy - Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm

I was really eager to try this since it´s considered one of the best cleansing balms on the market and I´m happy to say it didn´t disappoint. Did it blow my mind? Not really. As a balm, I couldn't say this worked more efficiently as the Clinique Take The Day Off balm. It works exactly the same. Solid in the tub, and while massaging into warm hands and skin, it turns into an oil that has zero …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

Just a little disclaimer± this is the type of product you´ll most likely have to try before you know if it´ll work for you. A lot of people rave about it, and others hate it. There´s no clear reason as to why it works for some and it doesn´t work for others so if you want to try it, be my guest.

Into the review, this stuff gave me THE WORST skin I have had in years. I´m talking about …

Mascara - Lancôme - Monsieur Big Volume Mascara

I bought this because every beauty influencer and their mother were raving about this one. But boy what a mediocre mascara for that pricepoint.

Perhaps I would be less harsh if it was a mascara from a cheaper drugstore brand but it isn't so I'm just going to be a little ruthless about it. First of all, this mascara needs a lot of coats to give a ''Monsieur …

I wasted money on this products. It is absolutely crap and I wouldn't advice anyone to buy this.

Admittedly, I bought this on a whim ad regretted it ever since. You open it up and the SMELL. It's an unpleasant smell that lingers for hours and it's just, ugh.. No.
But I can smell past a smell (see what I did there hehe) if the actual product is worth it. But like …

This has become a Holy Grail for me.

I had pretty high expectations due to the rave reviews and I was afraid those expectations were not going to be met. Those fears were unfounded and baseless tbh.

I have two ways of using this, depending on my skin needs. The first use is applying this every two days (I use a different oil on those days) after using the Pixi Glow Tonic to …

I didn't know you could fall in a love with a toner, but here I am!
At first, I was hesistant to buy Mario Badescu products for reasons most of us are familiar with at this point, but I was on the lookout for a good toner and the rave reviews this one has gotten convinced me to try it out anyway. And boy am I glad I did!

First, the bottle is great. Straight to the point, no …

Cleansers - The Body Shop - Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter

Feb/22/2018

This cleanser is the perfect dupe for the Clinique Take The Day Off balm. It has a similair texture, spreads just as easily and is pretty easy to rinse off with a konjac sponge. It's also pretty damn affordable, considering you only need very little to spread it all over your face. It gets all my make-up off and will allow you to massage your face too if you wish to do so. It did leave my …Read more

I like to stick with a good eyelid primer and don't mess around with it, but occasionally I get tempted to try a new one and this Zoeva primer is one of the primers I was keen on trying out. All Zoeva products have been solid and good so I knew I wasn't getting something horrible, but it has exceeded my expectations.

It's super easy to apply and the dispenser is …
