Polishes - Unlisted Brand - Born Pretty Holo Holographic Nail Polish #9

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/16/2013

Born Pretty holographic nail polishes are my no1 choice when it comes to an affordable holographic nail polish.

#9 is a light lavender purple linear holo. The holographic effect is very good and it is visible under not so bright sun.

The polish applies evenly, but it requires two to three coats to become completely opaque. The brush is small, but it works perfectly and I …

Gels/ Soaps - Yves Rocher - Jardins Du Monde - All Shower Gels

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/18/2013

I adore this shower gel/cream range. THey come in various scents and I have tried 7 different scents. My favourites are Tiare, Ylang Ylang, Cocoa Bean and Cotton Flower. I also used Orange, Coffee Bean and Lotus Flower, which are good, but the scents do not appeal to me.
The gels/shower creams are perfect - they clean the skin without drying it out and they come in a variety of scents, so …

Treatments (Face) - Lancôme - Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Serum

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/18/2013

I've been using it once per day for a little over three weeks. I used one drop of the serum for the whole face.

The serum is very runny, almost like water and it has silicon feeling. As I have mention, a little goes a long way, so I have almost half a bottle left.

The serum sinks into the skin immediately.

During the testing period, I haven't noticed any …

Gels/ Soaps - Yves Rocher - Jardins Du Monde - Polynesian Tiare Flower Shower Gel

Aug/18/2013

I adore everything tiare and this shower gel isn't an exception, even though this tiare is more on the fruity and less on the floral side. THe scent is amazing and very intense - it lingers for a long time.
THe gel lathers up well and works good at cleansing my skin. It isn't drying at all.
For the price of cca $3, this is something I really recommend.
I'd only …

Skincare - Body - Sisley-Paris - Energizing Foaming Exfoliant for the body

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/18/2013

In general I hate exfoliators because they are either too oily or have too harsh particles (all the natural ones which for example use crushed almond peel as exfoliating particles or they put too much oil). I have found some good that I repurchase, but in general I avoid the exfoliation.

The consistency of Sisley exfoliant is a bit runny - I'd prefer it to be thicker. The …

Polishes - Unlisted Brand - Born Pretty - Holo Holographic Nail Polish

Aug/18/2013

In my country there isn't a good selection of linear holographic nail polish (we only have Depend), so I had to order it on-line and at an affordable price in order to avoid paying customs fees. I found out about these polishes from Born Pretty Store and since they fit my criteria I got four shades to see it they are good. I ordered shades: #3 (pink with purple undertone), #4 (reddish pink) …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - Yves Rocher - Jardins du Monde - African Cocoa Bean Shower Cream

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/18/2013

African Cocoa Bean is a thick shower cream – the consistency reminds me a bit of L’Ocitane Shea Butter Shower Cream. The main difference is that I get more foam with Yves Rocehr than with L’Occitane.

The scent is a true bitter cocoa powder with a milky undertone. It smells like a dark chocolate and if you were hoping for a sweet smell, this one might disappoint.

The …

Fragrances - By Kilian - Water Calligraphy

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/18/2013

On my skin Water Calligraphy opens like a very strong floral, predominately jasmine. Although there should be a citrusy opening, I can barely detect just a hint of lemon in the background.
As the fragrance dries down, jasmine and magnolia compete and neither wins.
In spite of the florals, the fragrance leaves an overall impression of a watery scent – very fresh, but not to my …

Gels/ Soaps - Santa Maria Novella - Sapone di Latte

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/18/2013

I got Santa Maria Novella soap Gelsomino as a gift when I purchased some fragrance, so I don’t know the price, but I think it is around $8 for 100gram bar of soap.

The smell is kind of old-fashioned, slightly spicy but I grew to like it. It lingers on the skin for an hour or two.

Out of all the soaps I have tried, this one is the best. However, it doesn’t mean that it is …

Skincare - Body - Yves Rocher - Monoi de Tahiti Precious Dry Oil (Huile Sèche Précieuse)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/18/2013

As a total fan of Tahitian gardenia scent, I couldn’t resist it.

Yves Rocher Monoi de Tahiti scented dry oil comes in a 125ml bottle with a spray pump. It retails for around $11.

It sinks quickly and leaves my skin lightly perfumed and moisturized. If you have drier skin, it will not be enough, but for my skin, the level of moisture is just fine.

The scent is …
