Revlon Professional Style Masters Double or Nothing Reset Volumizer & refreshing dry shampoo Dry Shampoo Review

revlon-style-masters-double-or-nothing-reset-150ml

Pros:

My hair doesn‘t look greasy the next day after use.

Cons:

The bottle is pretty small considering the price.

More:

I‘ve had so many hormonal problems (both mental and physical hehe…) for many years. One of my hormonal issues is that my hair is ALWAYS fat and people always say don‘t wash it, because if you don‘t do it the fat will disappear – which is a big myth. I‘ve walked around looking like I poured a litre of oil in my hair for many years now, and have of course tried several different remedies. I‘ve tested several dry shampoos, which work for a dry max, and the next day my hair is back to its original oily state.

The big plus of this dry shampoo is that the spray consists of many small particles, which makes it less visible and more evenly divided into my hair upon spraying. You can use it both on dark and blond hair, because of the tiny particles so you can‘t see the shampoo in your hair. The next day my hair feels natural and not fat at all, and I don‘t have to rush to wash it. Another big plus is the smell – it remind me of a perfume a distant relative used to use, which makes me nostalgic – but I also love that it smells so good. The only minus is that the package is pretty small (though that also could be a plus if you want to travel with it).

Mizon Dust Clean Up Deep Cleansing Mask Review

51enluiw7kl

Pros:

I feel like my face is reborn after using this one.

Cons:

My skin feels very sensitive after use, almost on the verge of breaking out.

More:

So I‘m probably the last beauty blogger who jumped on the sheet mask train – and I think my wallet is grateful for that, cause now I‘m stuck. A “real” jar of mask just doesn‘t seem as appealing anymore to me..not when you can spend a small fortune (If you count per use price) on a small package of thread sheets and hope for a miracle..Anyways, this is the best sheet mask I have tried, and now I don‘t hold a gold medal in using sheet masks, but I think I can spot a good one.

It‘s a foaming mask (meaning it form a huge pile of foam on your face when you put it on), and after I removed the mask my face felt incredible. Like I just had a very deep cleanse and all residue of face products and dirt was taken off my face. I felt like my skin was reborn, and the feeling lasted well into the next day.  My skin felt a bit sensitive afterwards, like it could break out any time – but it didn‘t.

ACO Body Lotion Moist Review

aco_bodylotionmoist_parf_400ml

Pros:

You get a lot for your money.

 

Cons:

The smell is very neutral, I would have preferred a stronger smell for a feel of luxury – but depends on what you are locking for.

More:

I love that this body lotion comes in a huge package (400 ml to cover my voluptuous body) and that it comes as a pump bottle – making it very easy to use – and hygienic. It gets absorbed instantly, gives good hydration (not the best I tried but decent). The smell is pretty ok too, very very discreet. So verdict – this is a very decent and budget friendly body lotion where you get a good effect and amount for the money.

Vichy Ideal Body Serum-milk Review

3019212

Pros:

Makes my skin super smooth.

Cons:

You can‘t read the ingredients list before you buy the package.

More:

I try to read the reviews of others before writing my own – not to get reassured of my opinion, but rather to make sure I don‘t miss any important thoughts on the products I review – which is how I came across the fact (which hadn‘t hit me) – that on this bottle you can‘t read the ingredients list before purchasing the bottle. It is one of those sticky “pull off” paper so you can‘t read it while in the store without “damaging” the package a bit. There are many products which are designed like this, and knowing how much more aware we are today of the ingredients of what we put on our skin – this form of packaging is a big no NOOO.

Anyways back to this body lotion – it is very thin in consistency, gets absorbed immediately and leaves my skin super soft. This lotion feels very luxurious upon application and the smell is very discreet. About the ingredients list – I‘m not an expert on this topic – it contains rosehip oil, and everything based on the Vichy water I trust (as I said I have very little education on this particular topic…).

ACO Anti Age Filling Night Cream Review

aco-face-anti-age-40-plus-night-cream-normal-skin-50-ml-0

Pros:

Gets absorbed instantly.

 

Cons:

Doesn‘t give enough of hydration to my winter dry skin.

More:

I have been a fan of ACOs budget friendliness for years. The design of this cream feels very luxurious – love the dark color, which makes the jar look expensive and it looks good on my bathroom shelf. The texture of the cream is very light and the smell is discreet but very pleasant (a bit of fresia and spring I think). Since the cream is very light it gets easily absorbed. I have dry skin and used it during this winter – and could feel that I lacked a bit of that extra hydration. I think it‘s more of a spring/summer cream. But my skin feels smooth after use, I have not yet noticed if my fine lines are less visible (which is also promised by this cream). Overall I think that this cream is a stylish wallet friendly option.

Sisley Express Flower Gel Mask Review

71uogloqv0l-_sl1500_

Pros:

The tube lasts for a looong time  – about a year when using it 3 times a week.

Cons:

No effect of “smothered features”.

More:

You all know that I love my masks, period. And part of why I love them is the ritual of application – the feeling of being pampered and taking good care of my skin. This mask kind of robs me of this feeling – since applying it feels like applying a gel like cream, which gets absorbed incredibly fast. I know that one can use this mask as a 3 minute cure (which works great) – but since it cost me a small fortune I prefer using it as an overnight remedy.

The effect: my skin feels very soft and hydrated afterwards, can‘t say that it‘s really glowing – but I think you need much for then just a mask to get that (tons of sleep, sunshine and water). Basically this is a good mask if you want a quick bomb of hydration and enjoy feeling like you are not wearing a mask – for exemple during long flights. The mask promises to “smoothen” your features – don‘t know if they promise to make all my wrinkles disappear – cause that just didn‘t happen.

Cons – obviously the price, and that you can get the same effect of hydration from much cheaper alternatives (see here and here).

Best and Worst beauty products of 2017 – the complete list

models-at-a-beach-louise-dahl-wolfe

Dear Readers,

We love our annual lists of what was a game-changer and what we should have said no to. Here it is, enjoy (and avoid our mistakes)!

The best...

The lemon dream of the year goes to this one.

This mascara was not only wallet friendly but also the best we tried in 2017!

Our best budget buy was this charcoal mask.

This enzyme peel changed our skin game…

Our favourite Kiehl‘s product was this one.

This hair serum saved the (hair)day…

…and this foundation saved our face!

This fruity magic mask was our best splurge of the year.

The pore size reducing miracle we got hocked on..

The worst

The most overhyped product we wished we didn‘t splurge on is this Oribe spray.

This face cleanser we will never go back to..

…neither will we ever splurge on this hand cream (which did nothing for our dry hand)..

The prize of the most overhyped brand goes to Aesop big time (just read this and this review)!

This Clinique powder disappointed big time..

…and so did this foundation (if you have oily skin read this – to know what to stay away from!!).

The shampoo that did nothing for our hair was this one..

The lip balm everyone should stay away from is here.

Cetaphil did not really live up to the hype, just read here..

This was the list for 2017 – let us know which favourites you had and have a lovely 2018!

Alterna Caviar Style Waves Texture Sea Salt Spray Review

101209189

Pros:

Gives that perfect post beach hair look.

 

Cons:

You have to wash your hair the same night – because the spray leaves a lot of residue in it.

More:

I‘m dreaming of beaches and the sun – waiting for those rays of warmth is just easier when you surround yourself with some stuff helping the pretending a bit along the way. This salt spray is one of them…I love having salty hair – I don‘t care it dries out my hair and that my hair takes ages to recover after a week on the beach – it is still worth it.

This spray gives my hair instant volume, creates good curls and transforms me to a beach afterparty (instead of the train home from work after a grey day). The minus of this spray is that once you use it you have to wash your hair – the next day your hair is just full of residue and looks like crap.

Olaplex Hair Perfector Review

41k0v0hwrll-_sy355_

Pros:

This is the best hair masque on the marked (according to me)…

It strengthes your hair and saves an appointment with your hairdresser

Cons:

It is a little expensive and you need A LOT per use.

More:

I was introduced to this product by my hairdresser (a very fancy and expensive one) who added it to my dying to protect it and enhance shine. She told me that if I used it weekly my slit end would be helped and I would be able to let my hair grow long without looking trashed as I have done until now. So I had to try it (this was way before the general hype of this product..now it seems to me it is everywhere). I can defiantly say it makes my hair look healthier and more soft and my split ends less visible. So this is one of the few product I buy again and again. A plus is also that you apply it 20min before you shower and wash it out with shampoo, so you dont have to go in and out of bath. BUT a 100 ml jar only lasts me for about 5 uses and I have thin hair (and not a lot of it)..buying it online is a bit cheaper – but still not cheap enough, so this is definitely and indulgence product and I only use it once a week (which is recommended).
