DanishSkinCare Smooth Skin Treatment Review

danish-skin-care-sst

Pros:

Reduces pores and black spots. Decreases the amount of pimples I have.

Cons:

Not suitable for sensitive skin

More:

I bought this skin tonic as I read some remarkable stories from girls who were helped for their pimples and black heads. It also claimed that it could reduce poresize. Since I am 30 years pimples are luckily rare i my face. But I have struggled with large pores and black heads since I was a teenager.  So this was last step, and I really think it have helped my skin thanks to effective ingredients like salicylic acid and niacinamide. The first two or the times I used it my sensitive skin turned irritated and red, but after some days use my skin tolerated it. I can recommend it to people with not sensitive skin, who struggle with teenage skin and black spots and pores. Seriously they can really make you miserable – especially when many and uncontrollable.

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser Review

Pros:

Perfume free.

Cons:

Takes ages to get your make-up off.

More:

After using the Cetaphil face and body lotion, I wanted to try their face cleanser, which is kind of a myth. Apparently both Charlize Theron and Zoe Saldana live by it…so I thought I‘d like some Charlize in my face too…It felt good knowing that it is perfume free and has a great reputation, so my expectations are through the roof. So I go home, and try to wash my make-up off..and what happens? Nothing gets washed off, I have to literally scrub eyes with this cleanser for 5 minutes to get my mascara off. The cleanser kind off just moved around the dirt on my face without actually removing it. And to remove the actual cleanser from my face I have to use very generous amounts off water and a lot of effort. So now we all know that Charlize and Zoe basically don‘t take off their make-up, and that‘s why they are always picture perfect, just like stars should be.

ACO Sun Mousse Active Spf 30 Review

medium_aco-sun-mousse-active-spf30-26775

Pros:

Odourless.

Cons:

Makes ones skin very sticky after application.

More:

My mum gave me this sunscreen mousse before I went on vacation. Thank god mum doesn‘t read my blog cause I have to honestly say – this mousse is pretty darn bad. It does protect one from the sunny, but your skin feels beyond sticky and one just gets uncomfortable. First and foremost, the texture of this mousse is a bit like its supposed to be put in your hair and not on your body (its not a “soft” mousse – if that expression makes any sense). If you try to apply it on dry skin you will never be able to distribute it evenly – so you have to first go in the water. Thirdly – the cream never gets properly absorbed so you walk around all sticky – a major no for the beach. Therefore I will never ever buy this mousse again (sorry mum!). It also gets a low rating in the value for money category since its hard to evaluate how much mousse you need and end up getting to much per spritz.

Hawaiian Tropic Tanning Dry Oil Spf 12 Review

450

Pros:

Very water resistant.

Cons:

Hard to apply evenly.

More:

We are continuing this months theme of sunscreens (please summer cant you come sooner?). I got this sunscreen in the US for a fairly ok price. The first half of the spray bottle I used up in a few days since its very unpractical and you get way more then you wanted. So basically its a very unpractical bottle and the oil is hard to apply, so you use way to much per use – and end up feeling pretty “oiled up” and uncomfortable – which is what one fears when buying anything with the words “oil” and “sun” in it. The oil smells great of coconut, which is fantastic if you are into that – but dont expect your man to be intersted in using this one (I never meet one who wants to smell like a coconut dream really).

The only thing I really like about this oil is that its water resistant (80 minutes in water) and didn‘t make my face break out in pimples (which many oils do). The bottle lasted me for about 1,5 weeks of everyday use.

Eksperience 6-Vitamins Cocktail Filler Review

boost-6-vitamins-cocktail-filler

Pros:

Moisturises my hair well.

Cons:

Not sure vitamins can be absorbed by dead materia – aka your hair.

More:

I like the idea of using hair products one can leave-in (cause I‘m lazy let‘s face it and I feel very economic – no waste of product since its all left in). This vitamin boost filler comes in a glass jar, and is usually sold at salons – I consider myself taking a big “step-up” using salon products – which is new to me. It is supposed to rebuilt and give loads of moisture to the hair. I haven‘t been able to find information online if our hair can actually absorb vitamins – since its dead materia- but I‘m desperate and I‘ll put anything in my dry hair that sounds healthy (vitamins are good for you to eat – why not put it in the hair? I know blond logic).

My verdict – you only need a little per use. It doesn‘t make your hair greasy and it makes my hair feel very moisturised – though you can‘t replace your conditioner with this filler  – you need more.

Banana Boat Sport Sunscreen SPF 15 Review

 

e9ee7224-db93-4e87-b9ce-2cf24189faf7_1-f2619dad6227636dd4cec60117e2cb38

Pros:

Feels super light on my skin.

Cons:

The price.

More:

Continuing this months theme of reviews of sunscreen…this is probably my favourite sun screen ever!!! In general I hate using sunscreens (but I do of course) – I always feel like running into a shower after I spray myself with these sweet smelling oils and potions. This sunscreen was completely different though. It feels superlight, gets absorbed instantly and the scent is very discreet (very unisex). Doesn‘t stain my close and you can actually wear it outside of the beach and not feel like your skin is made of coconut glue. Its price is a bit high – at least where I got it (in Anguilla – and island where everybody is rich and over 60), so I don‘t actually know in which countries it is sold normally and how much it costs if its not imported from far far away.

ACO MOISTURISING SUN LOTION SPF 30 Review

aco-sun-lotion-300ml-bigsize

Pros:

After using this lotion I dont need to use a body lotion – it works like a two in one.

Cons:

This lotion takes a while to get absorbed.

More:

Lovely readers, summer is just around the corner and therefore this month is all about the sun and how you protect yourself from it. Therefore we will try to squeeze in as many reviews of sun lotions as possible. How did she manage to review so many sun lotions living in Scandinavia you ask ? Because it certainly ain‘t summer there yet (and you are completely right about that! Some years the summer doesn‘t really show up here at all and you have to spend July under an umbrella pretending that rain is nice too). Well – i took a small vacation in January this year – two months to be precise – and had plenty of opportuneties to review all my yays and neeeeeeis of the sun protection creams I went through. So here we go: this lotion gives good protection against the sun, it also works as a body lotion so one doesn‘t have to apply that since your skin is baby soft after a day at the beach with this sun lotion. A bottle also lasts long which is a plus and price is budget friendly. What is the minus? It takes a while to get absorbed and therefore one may feel a bit sticky – a very unwelcome feeling on the beach.

Max Factor 2000 Calorie Mascara Review

Pros:

Doesn‘t give me the panda look even after a loooong day at work.

Cons:

No long lashes here.

More:

I heard about this mascara because the Danish beauty entrepreneur slash mogul Marianne Tromborg, wrote a make-up book where she claimed this is the only mascara she can use. Being a fan, I naturally wanted to try this mascara. My verdict is: that this mascara is worth its (budget) price, but it certainly doesn‘t give that “WOW” effect. It‘s a good everyday mascara: giving just the right amount of discreet volume, not giving you the panda look and you can layer it many times without your lashes lumping together. Cons are that it doesn‘t give you long lashes, and as mentioned before no dramatic effect. If I want to look discreet when I go to work I use this one, but for after-work you definitely need something more dramatic and fab…

ACO Body Lotion Wild Honey Review

aco_bodylotion_wildhoney

Pros:

Very hydrating.

Cons:

Takes a while to get absorbed.

More:

This is yet again one of those beauty products my boyfriend stole from me – and I haven‘t seen it ever since. I got this body lotion to make sure my skin would‘t get the texture of old paper after our sunny vacation – and it has worked very well (boyfriend agrees). It was also friendly to my post-vacation (and too many shopping trips) wallet – which one could say has suffered enough for 2017…

The lotion has a discreet sweet smell, and makes my post-tan skin very hydrated. Its very fat in texture, due to this it takes a while to get absorbed. The bottle lasts me a few months and I would definitely recommend this one to any girlfriend whose boyfriend likes to steal her expensive bathroom goodies – its much cheaper this way.
