Essie Apricot Cuticle Oil Review

10553725-1403023008-821057

Pros:

The price is decent.

Cons:

Very sticky and no real effect.

More:

This oil is completely useless. You are supposed to use it on your cuticles and nails to make them stronger (and prettier hihi) but it is very liquid and sticky, and doesn‘t really stay on your nails. I don‘t know when you are supposed to use it (in your sleep when you don‘t move at all?) – because when I have used it my clothes, hands and face got covered in oil, stinking of apricot. Naturally I didn‘t really notice any effect – as a longtime nail bitting individual I had high hopes for this oil and got very disappointed. The only plus is that the price is decent.

Clinique Redness Solutions Daily Protective Base Review

clq_6lj401_402x464

Pros:

Covers up my red rosacea skin well.

Cons:

The price.

More:

I suffer from mild rosacea and use this base on my noose and checks to cover up redness. I apply this green coloured base, and then cover up with foundation on top. The package lasts for ages and you don‘t need much per use. The coverage is good and I feel that a good part of my redness is covered up well using this base. So I would definitely recommend this base if you have mild rosacea – but if you skin condition is more “serious” this coverage won‘t help you. I have used it on top of spots and smaller pimples and the coverage was good then too.

Clinique High Lengths Mascara Review

clq_6pl501_402x464

Pros:

Easy to apply, washes of with water.

Everyday discrete mascara.

Cons:

No dramatic volume effect, not good for night on the town.

More:

I bought this mascara by mistake.. Running through the airport, the Clinique woman in taxfree gave me the wrong mascara, which I only noticed when I openned it in another country and noticed the unconventional green rubber brush. But I must admit, I dont regret the mix up. Sometimes its good to stray from your safe buys.. Once I understood that the brush doesn’t make it any more difficult to apply, I was happily surprised. This mascara is great for the easy work look, where you want to look makeup free. It really does elongate the lashes, and there is no clumps, it is a silky smooth texture. Best thing about it, is it washes of in the shower, or even just with cold water plashed in the face, and doesn’t leave resistant running streaks under your eyes. This is my fave everyday mascara! If you want a more dramatic more is more kind of mascara though this is not the one for you!

Review of Make-Up Stores Cover-all Concealer

coverall-mix_20120_500x500

Pros:

Covers very well and lasts for years.

Cons:

For the first time in this blogs history, we do not have a con.

More:

For the past seven years I have used this little jar of magic concealer almost daily to cover a superficial vein on my nose and sometimes an occasional pimpel, which shows up to remind of my youth. Also I use it to cover up red skin. Why do I call it magical you wonder? Because it has not yet run out, and I tell you the jar is small, but then again you do not need much because it covers very well. It looks very natural despite having a consistency of a thick cream and it blends into the skin very well. This concealer is very cheap, and almost free if you think about how many zillion times I have used it.

Orofluido Amazonia Repairing Balm Review

orofluido-amazonia-repairing-balm-100-ml

Pros:

Smells delicious.

Cons:

No long lasting effect, has to be re-applied daily.

More:

This is a leave-in balm, which suites my dry, fluffy and damaged (from colouring it blond against all rules of nature) split ends. The texture of the balm is light, and gets absorbed fast. The balm smells very good – even my colleagues noticed. It makes my hair look more shiny and healthy – which is truly appreciated. My frizzy hair becomes easy to control and looks “pulled together” throughout the day. The negative is that I have to apply this balm daily and it has no long-lasting effect.

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).

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.

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.

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).
