Origins Out of Trouble Mask Review

s1376052-main-zoom

Pros:

Smell of camphor makes me believe this is really working.

Really keeps its promises to reduce grease and works as anti-inflamatory.

Cons:

Take care on more sensitive areas, and avoid using where it is not needed, as is might dry out and stress the skin.

More:

Winter is coming, and that means bye bye glowey, healty, easy going skin.. And welcome increasingly greasy, grey skin with random pimple outbursts on cheeks, that never ever heal. Winter for me is tough, one should think that scandinavian genes would have prepared us for month on month with no sunlight… But winter always fucks up my skin. And while I cover up my unshaven legs in layers of pantyhoes and jeans, my face is the only thing I need to take care of. SO one of the things I struggle with during winter is greasy skin with the occasional pimples that wont go away.  In my search for a mask that actually shows results, I stumbled over this one. And let me say, it is efficient. Almost too efficient, by that I mean, it can be a bit harsh on the skin, so I only use it on trouble area (in my case forehead). Once a week, or when needed, and the effect is long lasting – but that I mean that it reduced grease and works in an anti-inflammatory way – making my skin less prone to break-outs.  This mask almost feels pharmaceutical withs its potpourri of all the famous ingredients, that say bye bye pimples and grease: zink oxide, salicylic acid, sulfur, and camphor! This smell just says, “this is working!”.

Nivea Urban Skin Detox Night Gel Cream Review

product_v1_x1

Pros:

Leaves skin soft and sleek the day after.

Cons:

Leaves a film on skin, not for daytime use.

More: 

My skin is self-sufficient in the summer, winter on the other hand is a whole other story! A dermatologist once told me, that my winter breakouts where due to in part, need of exfoliation and need of moisture. Northern winter air, is void of humidity, so skin looses its moisture in the tough winter air.  This year I decided to work hard to reapply moisture, never giving up! I am trying out this night gel cream at the moment, applying it every night before bed time. And I wake up with soft skin the next day.. But dont use it during day time, as it kind of puts a film on your skin, that needs to be washed of before makeup. I dont feel the detox yet, but also not really sure how thats supposed to feel. Smell is quite unisex, maybe even a tiny bit masculine. Which is nice for a single girl, cause then I have sweet dreams of a man sleeping next to me..

Revlon Professional be Fabulous C.R.E.A.M mask Review (for normal/thick hair)

cream_mask_200ml

Pros:

Makes my hair easy to detangle.

Cons:

Smell is a bit heavy.

More:

I feel a bit like a professor of the be Fabulous line – because I‘ve tested most of the products (see reviews here, here and here). This hair mask is one of my favourites (the strong number one is held by the repairing serum  – I used up the bottle in a month). I like that it makes my hair easy to detangle, and that it doesn‘t have to stay in your hair for too long for effect (I make it 10 minutes usually). The smell is a bit heavy – makes you feel like you are in a hair saloon. It makes my hair OK moisturised – the thing is that it‘s soo cold right now everything on my body is dry (my skin, my eyes, and of course my hair too) – so I feel that I can‘t really give this mask a fair mark on that one, because I‘m using coconut oil on all of my body (except eyes though) to try make all that dryness disappear – and feel that its a bit of an exceptionally dry state my hair is in – that no mask can help me out of (but a combo of a lot of oil/this hair mask/oil mist can)…

Orofluido Amazonia Shampoo Review

orofluido-amazonia-shampoo-200-ml

Pros:

I don‘t need to wash my hair for 5 days at least when using this shampoo.

Cons:

No protection against frizz (…but maybe I should just use an umbrella for that?).

More:

Those of you who followed this blog for a while, know that I‘m obsessed with the Orofluido hair oil (it changed my hair game big time and though I have cheated on it, I have never found a better oil to use). The shampoo contains 4 “magic” ingredients:  keratin, murumuru butter, acai beef extract and sacha-inchi-oil – each of the promising something like smoother, softer, more beautiful, healthy-looking hair. It‘s supposed to smell of “exotic berries and spicy ingredients” – though I think it smells more of apple.

My verdict is that it makes my thick hair look very healthy, gives it a smoother appearance all over all it looks more “put together”. Minus:  no protection against frizz and you need a lot per use.
