Revlon Professional be Fabulous Hair Recovery Conditioner for damaged hair Review

revlon-be-fabulous-hair-recovery-cream-keratin-con

Pros:

Lathers well.

Cons:

My hair is greasy two days after use.

More:

Dear readers, today we are on a rampage..not cause we are well rested after a sunny vacation but because vacation is so close that we can actually see it, and therefore we decided to post twice in one day. That rarely happens for us, since a review should be well thought out and we test everything for ages before giving you our opinions, to make sure they are well thought out.

Anyways, back to this conditioner – it feels very good when you apply it – lathery and promising. But the smell is a bit synthethic (too much like a hair salon). After use my hair looks good for a few days – maybe one or two – and then slowly turns more and more greasy. Since I rarely get greasy hair this conditioner gets thumbs down big time!! It didn‘t give my hair that “anti-damage” boost that one would expect either!

Aesop Blue Chamomile Facial Hydrating Masque Review

771070_ou_pp

Pros:

Smells nice of herbs.

Cons:

Doesn‘t give much hydration.

More:

This is not a leave-in mask but you put it on for 30 minutes and remove it. During my first 30 minutes I went through a bit of a despair crisis – that crisis when you realise you wasted your money yet again! The mask gets absorbed into my skin after about 7 minutes, leaving a thin layer you remove and then realise not much has happened to your skin. It is a bit hydrating but not as much as one would expect – using it in warmer times of the year when you skin is pretty well-hydrated would be fine but this mask will not save you in colder times.

I tried using the mask as an overnight treatment but my skin actually felt pretty dry from that.

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.

Revlon Be Fabulous Fine Hair Volumizing Spray Review

volume_hair_spray

Pros:

Gives my hair nice structure…

Cons:

…and more volume (though not as much as one could expect)..

More:

I have very fine hair – and of course dream of volume (why can‘t one just be happy with what one‘s got?!)..This spray gives my hair more volume (not crazy much but enough) and texture (aka it doesn‘t “fly around” as much – as it usually does)..It smells very nice of perfume, not chemical or of candy – which I really appreciate.

I have in the past experienced rashes from volume sprays – but not from this one – even though I spray it on like 15 – 20 sprays daily.

Caviar Anti-Aging Infinite Color Hold Vibrancy Serum Review

alte0235h_1_l

Pros:

Makes my hair shiny and health looking.

Cons:

Can‘t really notice any color protection.

More:

I got this serum in hope of protecting my dyed hair as it turns dry and the color fades a few weeks after dying it. This serum also promises to protect your hair against the sun and to add shine.

I can‘t really tell if it has protected my hair color – I just can‘t see any difference. But my hair definitely looks more healthy and my split ends are less visible (where did they go -. I don‘t know – promise I haven‘t cut them off!). When used after washing my hair it provided shine to my hair. But if I use it between washes it makes my thin hair look greasy so I can only recommend to use it straight after you washed your hair.

MAC STUDIO FINISH SPF 35 CONCEALER Review

oil3

Pros:

The package lasts for years.

Cons:

You can‘t apply it unless you have a good eye cream as a base.

More:

First and foremost I have been using this concealer for a good 1 year, and I still have more then half the package left. I definitely like this concealer more then my previous one (Mac Select Moisturecover concealer), but it still has a lot of minuses. You have to use your fingers when applying it, which is a bit unhygienic. You can also spend your money on an extra brush – which I didn‘t do.

When applying this concealer you have to have a layer of a good eye cream underneath, otherwise you really can‘t apply it at all – it gets all caked up. I have tried layering it over several different eye creams and only one really worked (my favourite Vichy eye cream). Does it cover well? It covers ok – I don‘t notice my dark circles throughout the day, but it could definitely cover more – since I can see a hint of them after applying the concealer. Also if your skin is sensitive it might not appreciate you piling on concealer on top of a fat layer of eye cream – though this way you will actually remember to apply eye cream (which for me is a bit of a regime “for old people” hence it took me a while getting used to it).

I choose the shade of my concealer with a Mac sales person and honestly sometimes it feels like the part I‘m covering up is shining right back at me – like the color is too bright, and I have to spend a few extra second smudging it in, so it fits in with the color of the rest of my face.

Overall I must say that this concealer could give better coverage, but I still have loads left so I will keep on using it…til I bump into a perfect concealer (in my friends make-up bag) and fire this one.

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.
