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!

Clinique Beyond Perfecting Powder Foundation Review

clq_zgh6_402x464

Pros:

Nice package.

Cons:

Looks pretty unnatural.

More:

It got tricked. I walked into the store looking for a transparent oil absorbing powder – but came out with a powder foundation plus concealer powder. What was I thinking ? I was not thinking obviously and I was tricked.  I think sometimes the salespeople speak to our inner selves – the salesperson that day was just trying to cover up my acne for me.

Verdict: this powder covers up well, you get 14,5 grams of powder per package (usually you get 9). The package is pretty, functional, and has a big mirror. The powder is supposed to hydrate dry parts of the skin, but instead of giving a nice matte touch, my skin turns shiny and oily within a few hours after the use of this powder. The powder piles up on my skin and looks very unnatural.
