I had a gift card at the HM perfumery and I bought this shower gel among other stuff. It was about $3 for a 250 ml bottle. Now I dont know what I was thinking buing this one, it smells so bad. Kinda sour and ugh...I have used it a couple of times, but no...I just cant stand the peculiar smell. In addition it is pretty dying to my skin. The consistency is kinda slimy in my opinion. I am going back …Read more

I have dry and sensitive skin as well as rosacea, and I swear by this cream. It has become my HG in caring for my facial skin. I have tried and used a lot of different moisturizers both for dry skin and sensitive skin - this one I will use the rest of my life...! I am so happy to finally have found a cream that gives plenty of moisture without breakouts. It makes my skin so soft and absorbs …Read more

Although I live in Norway, Swedens good neighbour, I have just tested Esthelle & Thild. I have rosacea and dry sensitive skin, so when I desided to try out using a serum, I chose E & T because it was a good offer on a webshop. I chose the serum for sensitive skin, the Calming one. It is a good product, but I have to use only one pump or my skin breaks out. And the product seems to get …Read more

I ordered this one as a hair cream when my hair dresser told me that my long, colored hair was somewhat dry. She recommended a hair cream I dont remember, but I never buy hair products in the salon because its cheaper online. This one from Redken seemed good, and I am previously happy with the Redken All Soft Shampoo. I didnt like the All Soft Conditioner and hair mask. I take this hair cream in …Read more

Cleansers - Lancôme - Galatee Confort Cleansing Milk

I bought this cleanser for my dry, sensitive rosacea facial skin. It cost NOK 99 for 75 ml, approxomately $11,6. So its not a cheap cleanser. When I received it I first thought I had mistanken it, as it said make up remover on the label, so I thought I had bought an eye makeup remover instead of a cleanser. But now I realize that it does both, cleanse when you dont use make up too. The first time …Read more

A decent thermal water for skin care. I have rosacea so I use this as a toner after my cleansing milk. It is good, healthy for facial skin. Still I prefer Avene's spray water. I have also tried LRP thermal water. I got the smallest bottles, 50 ml, at a good price on an online pharmasy and stocked up. I am sure that the minerals in the water are healing on my skin condition. I cant be without …Read more

I got this mascara at a very good price,(31 NOK, about $4) so I probably shouldnt complain too much about it...but it is a hoepless mascara. I just expected more from this well-known brand. About the mascara. It has a fresh and modern design in the color aqua, I like that. But the mascara refuses to build any volume, lenght or the least of a curl to my eyelashes. Its rather wet in the consistency …Read more

For the price of NOK 29,- you get an ok mascara. Its not good but not bad eighter. You have to put on a lot of mascara for it to show. But it gives the lashes a Nice curl and defines them. Its easy to build up a visible look. The consistense is on the drier side. The design is cool, but unforunately it wears off after a few months.

Its always exciting to try a new mascara, and this one was about 30 NOK, so a cheap thrill this time. I have never tried Essence mascaras before. The tube is relatively big and has a nice enough design, you can see that its not a high end one. When I opened it the first thing that hit me was that it seemed so dry! But when I put it on my lashes it really pushed my lashes upwards from the first …Read more

I had never heard of this brand before I saw the lipsticks on sale on a Norwegian cosmetics webshop. The full price of the lipstics are 200 NOK, but I got it at 50 NOK. Yesterday I saw the lipstics had been redused to 36 NOK, so it is very cheap now. A bargain! Cause its in fact marketed as a high end brand. I agree With other reviewers that the packaging is not high end...but maybe the Company …Read more
