This relatively new day cream from ALDI is just amazing. There are 5 different types in their new range and I picked the "Nourissante Crème de jour" (Nourishing day cream) for sensitive skin. It contains Q10 and a SPF 15, and no bullshit ingredients etc. It costs only 2,19 euros for 50 ml, and for me it outclasses any expensive product I ever tried on my face!

I love the …

Jun/26/2018

It's a good mascara that separates my lashes very well and gives them definition, but apart from that it does nothing for my lashes. It doesn't lengthen, doesn't add volume, doesn't curl. It just defines and darkens my lashes. It's easy to apply though, doesn't clump and looks natural. But then again it flakes quite badly throughout the day and is not easy to remove …Read more

My skin is 'kind of' sensitive but not that badly. Some products make my skin burn or give me small red bumps around the eyes after a few days of use, but on the other hand I can use most drugstore products, even the cheapest brands, without any problem.

This expensive product is meant to be suitable for 'hypersensitive skin' but I have never had any cleanser burn …

Got a sample of the normal to combination skin version. After application it absorbs rather well and leaves my skin feeling soft. So far so good. The scent however is overwhelming, even irritating and it just doesn't fade! Even when I wake up in the middle of the night, the first thing I notice is the terrible smell on my face.
The next morning I got my next bad surprise: red spots and …

Cleansers - Unlisted Brand - Primark PS ... Foaming Face Wash Rose & Vitamin E

Nothing wrong with the product itself - it's a foaming face wash that does its job just like it should. The rose scent is quite strong, but I like it and my slightly sensitive skin doesn't have any problems with it. People with dry skin should maybe steer away from this, because it tends to strip off your skin a bit, but my very oily summer skin needs that.

However... even if …

Someone at the gym gave this to me just like that, and now I see why. Smell and texture is great but the packaging... Oh dear. It's messy, the pump doesn't work well after some time, I had to push harder and harder to get any of the gel out. Just the other day when I wanted to go to sleep, I opened the bathroom closet to get my toothpaste, only to find the whole closet covered in foam …Read more

At first I was wowed by this mascara, it glides on very easily, doesn't clump, separates my thin and criss-cross lashes rather well and gives them a discrete but nice curl and definition. And above that, my lashes look natural, soft and "feathery". Yay!

But now that I'm using it for a few weeks, I'm a bit disappointed after all: it smudges and flakes terribly …

Bought it because of all the great reviews, but I'm not impressed at all. With the stick almost finished, here's my opnion:

1. Formula, consistency: fine for me. It glides on smoothly, feels greasy enough to be comfortable but not too greasy either. Just two swipes is enough to cover my lips.

2. Taste/smell: I personally don't mind the smell, but I do think …

I got this for free, and I'm happy that I never spent money on this. This mascara is just... Meh. What can I say?

The brush isn't so bad: it's big and the shape helps me to reach all my lashes, from inner to outer corner. It doesnt separate very well, but with some effort I'm able to make it work after all.

BUT: it simply does not stay in place. First of …

At first I was super-enthusiastic to get this sponge because of all the raving reviews I read, calling it the perfect Beautyblender dupe. I thought, "whoa, why would anyone pay 20 euros for a sponge if you can get the same quality for 6 euros?".

When I first started using it I was amazed because yes, the application is super easy with a flawless finish in no time. You just …
