Vichy Idealia Eye Contour Idealizer Review

Pros:

Really does help remove dark circles under my eyes.

Cons:

The price.

More:

I have been using my tube of this eye cream for about 2 years before I squeezed it to its end. My mama gave it to me for my birthday because at the age of 25 it was time to take care of those wrinkles-to-be around the eye area (honestly I think all of that wrinkle talk is pretty ridiculous but I‘m too scared to turn into an old orange to not obey and put cream in my face). I really like that the tube lasts for ages, which kind of makes up for its (a bit heavy) price. So does it make the circles under your eyes disappear? Yes actually it does. I have always had dark circles under my eyes, no matter how much or little I sleep, and while using this cream I have a few times caught myself thinking “actually you don‘t look that exhausted considering how little you slept”. Once I finished the package and moved on to a new cream – I really noticed the difference, my black circles came back to hunt me. This does not mean that there were no dark circles when I used this cream, cause there were – they were just a shade lighter and I didn‘t look as tired after 4 hours of sleep as I do now (when using another cream).

The best and worst beauty products of 2015 – the complete list

Happy new year lovelies, we have made a small list of what we liked and disliked this year:

Best budget product ever.

Best hair leave in treatment.

The DIY of the all.

The hair mask that changed our hair game.

The splurge of the year.

Best thing for your eyes (hey sexy cat eyes).

The oil that doesn‘t kill sensitive skin.

Best foundation to hide our pimples.

Algeas became our new favourite put-in-my-face thing, how random and awkward, but great result.

The body lotion of the body lotions that has been nourishing and loving to our winter skin.

And WHAT WE DID NOT LIKE:

Let this one stay away from your lashes.

This serum can stay where it belongs – far away from our face.

The body butter that left us wondering what the hell.

Our hands cried of anger after this one ( This one was pretty bad too though).

The splurge we regretted.

The concealer we will never repurchase.

Our lips were so mad with us after we used this one.

Thank you for a great 2015 and we are looking forward to guide you through another exciting year!

Review of Origins Ginzing Refreshing Face Mask

Pros:

Skin feels more fresh after use.

Cons:

..But not that super fresh as one would expect.

More:

Masks are such a nice luxury for you face, which is why I think so many of us bloggers obsess about them. The GinZing from Origins contains coffee, hoelen mushroom and cucumber (how a mushroom which is used as treatment for diarrhea is supposed to soothe your skin is beyond me).  Anyways, Origins promises that the mask will add extra glow and an energy boost to your tired skin.

Since my skin is beyond tired from late night studying and obsessive watching of Fargo, I though I would give it a go.

The mask feels very pleasant on my skin to start with, but starts itching if you keep it on for more then 10 minutes, but you are only supposed to use it for 10 minutes so that is OK. It has a jelly-like consistency and smells flowery like the rest of the Origins products. After usage my face does look a bit more fresh, but I really cannot see any of that promised glow or radience.  For those of you still considering to purchase this mask: you need a very small amount per application so a package lasts long, but I think I will give mine away (to somebody who doesnt read my reviews;).

Review of Emma S Sensitive Facial Oil Serum

EMMAe_0036-SensitiveFacialOilSerum1-470x627

Pros:

This is the first facial oil I can use without getting pimples or my skin starting to itch.

Cons:

A bit pricey and small bottle.

 More:

Emma S is a Swedish brand, whose products I have reviewed before, which was started by supermodel Emma S Wiklund. I really like the idea of using products from small brands with strong ideas and ethics rather then the multi-billion dollar cooperations who already made enough money, and therefore I get extremely excited when finding a brilliant product made with love and strong beliefs.

I love oils and I love serums, so this is a great combination for me, especially since its specifically made for sensitive skin. Because despite my love of oils my skin can not handle them, and I tend to break out or get blackheads after just a few days of use. Since oils are so hyped, I keep on trying my luck (yes im one of those people who purchase things after reading about them in a magazine) and getting disappointed.

The serum oil has a nice silky feeling, is perfume free, sinks in fast and works well with my regular cream (does not get sticky or takes ages to sink in). I started using it at the end of the summer, when my skin was hydrated, and it still blended in well without causing the usual pimples my skin is prone to when getting over-hydrated or when I use oil. The best part is that I can really see an instant result on my skin when using it, I wake up with smoother and more radiant looking skin. The minuses are that the bottle is 30 ml making the product a bit pricy.
