SEVENTEEN Va Va Voom Mascara REVIEW


Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog.

Today I'm back with a new Mascara.

Today I'm talking about the


SEVENTEEN

Va Va Voom


Blackest Black Volume Mascara


I got this mascara in Boots,
and I have never tried a Seventeen mascara
so I thought to give this a go
especially since I really loved the packaging.

Usually I'm not a massive fan of Volume Mascara
But this one is really good.

It does add volume to my lashes as you can see from the
pictures, before and after

The only thing I don't like is the wand

Way too big.
I always end up messing around my makeup with it

If the wand was smaller
I would LOVE this mascara

So I would say I love the formulation
I dont like the wand
but this is totally personal.

Have you ever tried this mascara?

Let me know

MARCELLE Waterproof Eyeliner in Expresso REVIEW


Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog.

Today I'm back with a new product
an eye product
from a new brand
completely unknown to me
called

MARCELLE

 Thanks again to Birchbox
I was able to try this product
their

Waterproof Eyeliner

in the shade

Expresso

Stays put all day to make your eyes sparkle!

Tears, heat, and humidity don’t stand a chance with
this long-lasting waterproof eyeliner. Available in 14 different matte and pearl
shades, this eyeliner will be a staple in your beauty bag.
Its creamy formula allows you to create a precise line or a more smudged finish.
Use them alone or with your favourite eye shadow to make your eyes sparkle.

This liner stays put all day, but comes off easily
with any Marcelle eye makeup remover.

I really like this eyeliner
the colour is unusual
a very dark brown with a bit of sparkles

I love to use it all over my eyes, to create a nice smokey effect
(with a twist of sparkle)
also it's perfect on the water line.
It stays put all day


A very nice product.

Did you know this brand?

Let me know if you own already any product from Marcelle.

Leave me a comment.

BEAUTY PROTECTOR Protect & Detangle Leave in Conditioner REVIEW


Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog.

Today I'm back with a new review about
a new hair product.

Another product which I was able to discover through
Birchbox


The November Edition
which was in collaboration with the magazine
Tatler


If you are curious to see what else was in this box
check out this video down below


This product is from a brand called

BEAUTY PROTECTOR

and this is their

Protect & Detangle

Leave in Conditioner

"Beauty Protector'’s leave-in mist is about as versatile as they come.
This paraben- and sulfate-free detangler seals the cuticles of each
strand to smooth hair and moisturizes, which helps minimize frizz.
It also provides protection against UV rays and heat, safeguards color,
and adds shine. Happily, it accomplishes all this through a weightless,
nongreasy formula that leaves behind an airy floral scent.
Plus, it’'s 100 percent vegan and suitable for all hair types."


I use this product after washing my hair.
right before blow dry it.
It leaves my hair easy to manage
since I have damaged hair any time I wash it
it's very hard to avoid breakage
When I use this product I can see a significant improvement

Also it leaves my hair with a very delicious scent

This is only the travel size, but it was big enough for me to get
an idea of the product itself.

The full size retail for £18.50

I like it!

Have you ever tried this brand?

Let me know

MERCI HANDY Love & Hand Cleansing Gel REVIEW


Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog.

Today I'm going to talk about this little product
which I have found inside
my August 2016

Birchbox


Actually if you haven't seen the video
where I share the content of my
August Birchbox
here's the link


The product for today is the

MERCI HANDY

Love &

Hand Cleaning Gel

or just sanitiser 

Since I have start using those type of product
I can not longer stop.

These type of sanitiser are the best
for who, like me
travel a lot, and it's always on the go.

I carry one of those all the time on my hand bag, ALWAYS.

In particular this one by
Merci Handy
smell so good.
It's pink, and looks even pretty...
apart from the fact that kills bacteria 
also add a good moisture to the skin

I love using it, sometimes these are life saver
especially  when entering a public toilet
over crowded or not too clean
I always avoid using the public sinks..
get outside and use my hand sanitiser
it's much better!

Glad I got an extra one of these from Birchbox.

St. Ives Normal & Combination Skin Refreshing Facial Wipes REVIEW


Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog.

Today is time to talk about facial wipes.

I use facial wipes any now and again
and mostly combined with another of my
cleaning routine.

In the past I used to use them on their own
but nowadays I feel I need an extra cleanse

This time I was in
Superdrug
since I'm always looking for something
to remove waterproof makeup
and at the same time a product aimed for combination & oily skin
I decided to try this out

I'm talking about

St. Ives

Normal & Combination Skin

Refreshing Facial Wipes

This wipes are alcohol free
and with natural chamomile extract

They feels so gentle
and they do remove fairly well
any makeup

Since I wear waterproof eyeliner and mascara
I always need to use an extra step to erase
any track of makeup
but
afterall
I really like this product


It does what it says

GARNIER Skin Active Moisture Bomb REVIEW


Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog.

Today I'm going to talk about a new skincare.

I bought this face cream in Boots.
The reason why I got it is that way back
I was able to try out a tester of this product, and I remember to like it.

This is the

GARNIER

Skin Active

Moisture Bomb

Super Hydrating Antioxidant Moisturiser SPF 10

This is specifically a DAY cream
since it has spf in it.

One thing that I really like of this product is the packaging.
I don't know what it is about pump, but anything with a pump
makes me happy, since you can get the right amount with a pump
without needing to touch the product with the finger
or making it in contact with air
A pump is more handy to use
and more hygienic (I think)

This cream is made with
antioxidant pomegranate and amla extract
7% plant serum

It rehydrates intensely 24hr
It reduces the appearance of fine lines
and it has anti-oxidant & UVA/UVB protection

What I like about it?
the consistency
it feels really lightweight
and fast absorbent

Not sticky at all.
The scent is not too overpowering, which I love.
It seems to be a perfect "primer" for the makeup as well.

I like it.

Did it reduced my fine lines....?
nope I don't think so..
but what does?
I still haven't found a product
which does that :)


and you?


Let me know
