Skincare - Face - Kjaer Weis - The Beautiful Oil

I'm afraid I have to join into the positive reviews for this one.
And I don't do it lightly, as the price for this oil is totally bonkers, no question.
The price is also the reason it took me two years to try it because I had actually ruled it out - due to the price.
I had a generous sample of this which lasted me two weeks. And I have no idea how exactly this oil works …

Crème - CHANTECAILLE - Future Skin Foundation

2.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

As I have some few superb products from Chantecaille (their Lip Veils are fantastic for example), and as I had the chance the get a huge discount on this foundation, I gave it a try.
As you can see in my profile pic I am very fair, so I chose the shade 'Porcelain'.

The first thing I don't like so much is the package. It is a little pot with a lid, and getting that …

Gels/ Soaps - Avene - XeraCalm A.D Lipid-Replenishing Cleansing Oil

5.0

I love this cleanser in autumn and winter. It lathers up into a very soft foam, not very much foam, which I like. It has almost no scent and and your skin just smells fresh and clean after using this. I also don't need a body moisturizer after using this as it leaves the skin moisturized and very soft. And I don't know if the ingreditens were changed but as other people here stated it …Read more

Fragrances - CHANEL - Coco Eau de Toilette

Aug/30/2018

certainly one of the most beautiful perfumes of all time - IF - you are lucky enough to get a vintage version of it. I was that lucky and own a 50ml splash EdP from around 1986, perfectly preserved, and believe me, there is no comparison whatsoever to the current version. I tested them simultaniously, and apart from the scents being very different (vintage version is a perfectly harmoneous …Read more

Fragrances - Annick Goutal - Mon Parfum Cheri, Par Camille

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/16/2018

Let me first say that I love many of Goutal's scents and some classics like "Heure Exquise" are long time favourites of mine and are favourites in my collection.
This was the first and only Goutal scent that almost made me gag. I think it smells horrendous. Like mouldy, wet earth combined with overripe, rotting fruits. This scent combination is superstrong with a very strong …

Moisturizers - Unlisted Brand - Mahalo Skincare Rare Indigo Beauty Balm

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/28/2018

Mahalo's "The Rare Indigo" was another organic blue miracle balm I had the chance to try lately. (as there are meanwhile a lot of blue organic balms which all cost a little fortune)
What I like about the Mahalo balm is the consistency and that it does not sit on your skin but sinks in immediately.
What I don't like so much is the quite heavy scent. It doesn't …

Moisturizers - Unlisted Brand - Leahlani Skincare Mahina Evening Replenishing Elixir

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/25/2018

After having a trial set of the whole Leahlani skincare line I have to say I'm in love!
And especially with this elixir.
It has some really nourishing oils as basis ingredients which immediately plump up the skin without the elixir being heavy or sitting on the skin. I wake up with a babycheek-smooth skin in the morning, evened out skintone, and a really obvious reduction of my …

Skincare - Body - CLARINS - Huile Tonic - Body Treatment Oil

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/09/2018

One of my favourite body oils for years. I buy a bottle every year in spring to support my gym routine and keep my legs in shape.
I absolutely love the very refeshing minty-rosemary scent of this. The scent really cheers me up and feels very invigorating. What I especially like is that is a completely natural mixture of high quality hazelnut oil and a very delicate mixture of essential …

Fragrances - CHANEL - Gabrielle

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/30/2018

As a fan of the classic Chanel scents as well as the Les Exclusives, I just can say "Gabrielle" is embarrassing to the legacy of Coco Chanel. This scent is ordinary, nothing special of Chanel about it. It smells like a mixture of several ordinary drugstore scents, a bit of everything, a little flower mix in the beginning and then an almost annoying cheap fruity note.
Total …

Fragrances - CHANEL - No.5 Parfum

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/29/2017

It's weird as 10 years back I really didn't like No 5, not at all actually. Meanwhile, I don't know why, but I really started to love the unique note No 5 has. I still don't own the orginial scent as it is just too heavy for my nose although I actually like it. There is something that is disturbing the main note in it, I guess it's lily of the valley. But, I'm so …Read more
