DR. BRANDT Pore Perfecting Exfoliator REVIEW


Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog.

Today I want to talk about a skincare product
which was in one of my
Birchbox
(December 2016 to be more specific)

Here's the video of the unboxing of this box in case
you are curious to see what else was inside


This product is from a brand which I didn't know before called

Dr Brandt

and this little blue tube is a small size of their

Pore Perfecting Exfoliator

The full size of this product retails for £43.00 
a bit too much for my liking
when it comes to exfoliators

I don't have a problematic skin
but I do like a good exfoliation every now and again..
still this price is a bit too high for me.. 
but this doesn't mean that I didn't like the product.

I actually really like it.
It has the FINEST
and I repeat FINEST 
particles inside
and exfoliating has never been so nice for me..
it is so efficient but yet not invasive
like some of the very hard core exfoliatiators

It contains salicylic acids
which help getting rid of all the dead skins
and give you a super smooth looking (and feeling) skin

I really enjoy it..
But
I don't see myself buying it..
just cause it's a bit too overpriced for me.


What exfoliator do you use?

Let me know.

GRWM March 2017 [Pictures]


Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog.

Today I have got for you few (more than a few)
pictures of my latest makeup look
which I filmed for my
Get Read With Me March 2017


I went for a golden warm toned eye look
(of course with the usual cat line)


and this time I was inspired by my hair colour
(a bit pink as you can see from the pictures)
and I went for an orchid lips.

I love this lip colour so much.
What do you think?

Here's the video in case you want to see what products I have used
for this makeup look.


I hope you enjoy it.

Tesco Free From Milk Original Soya Soft Cheese


Hi everyone!
Welcome back to my blog.

Today I'm back with a "Food" type of post.

If you follow me for a while you might know
that over the last year I have become Vegetarian
I totally stop eating fish and meat last September
and I feel great! I don't miss it.

In this time
I'm trying to follow a vegan diet rather than a vegetarian (when I can)
So for instance, when I'm home I pretty much eat
vegan food, when I'm out if I cannot find a vegan option I rely
on the vegetarian one (the much more common option)


I don't miss cheese to be honest.. but the other day I was in 

TESCO

and I spotted this one

their

Free From Milk

Soya Soft Cheese


So I started craving bread and cream cheese
and since this is vegan
I picked it up

It retails for £2.25
and you get a decent 255g

To me this taste very similar to Philadelphia cheese
it is spreadable and creamy

It is made of Coconut Oil and Soya

I really like it.


If you are vegan or are allergic to dairy
and you have a TESCO near by
I recommend you to try this out.

If you have any recommendations on free dairy cheese
let me know.

BIRCHBOX March 2017 - What's Inside?


Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog.

Time of the month... (not that time)
to talk about 
Birchbox

March Birchbox was quite late this month
actually really late..
but as I say
better later than never


This box is probably the least exciting one
since I've been subscribed to Birchbox UK (last June)

The only reason for it is
THE MINI SIZES

 

Mini or travel sizes can really be extremely useful
when you are traveling especially..
but at least ONE product
in the box should be a full sized


AT LEAST ONE
but this time.. none were..

that's why I was disappointed..

If you want to see the unboxing video of this Birchbox
I leave you the link down below


Lets Hope April Birchbox will be "better"

FIVE SENSES Skincare Poppy Fields Soap REVIEW


Hello everyone!! Welcome back to my blog.

Today I'm back for a small little review about
a beauty product which was sent to me
from the brand

FIVE SENSES SKINCARE

Since they sent me a massive package way back in January
(you can see the unboxing video of it, down below)


I'm trying little by little, to test out and use up each product
being an organic brand, the expiration date is very short
so I'm trying to do my best to used them up before the time.

Today I'm back with my thoughts on this soap

the

Poppy Fields Soap


This product retails for 6,00 €
and you can get it from their website

"The evocation of a red poppy field is the inspiration behind this soap.

In the middle of the summer the astonishing bright red colour
and the wind blowing in your hair seems surreal ... 
I can almost feel the wind ...

Filled with poppy seeds for a gentle exfoliation and an extra creamy
and fragrant recipe this soap is the perfect evocation
of a summer day on your way to the sea side ...

Prepare your senses for an intense experience of luxury and nourishment ...
You deserve it !

Each Product weighs approx. 130g/4.5oz"

The thing I love the most about this soap
is the poppy seeds
of course
when I use the soap on my body
the little seeds help to create a very gentle exfoliation
and at the same time helping activating the circulation
I love using it during my bath, on my arms and legs.

I've got so many other products from Five Senses Skincare to try out..

Watch out for my next review.

BOOTS Time Delay Micellar Cleansing Water REVIEW


Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog.

Today it's time to talk about another

Micellar Water

I have tried so many from the drugstore..
most of the brands actually
and when I'm around shopping and I spot a new one which I didn't try before
I need to get it.

That's why I got this one by

BOOTS

from their

Time Delay

line

Micellar Cleansing Water

To be honest this product does what it claims to do
remove the makeup
(even the waterproof, maybe for that you need more cotton pads)

What I'm trying to say, it was okay, but not WOW!

Even though it contains aloe vera
anytime I used it I felt my skin really irritated
it is a feeling that goes away very quickly
and doesn't linger on
but still..
I don't know why, maybe it's me...
although I don't think I have a sensitive skin,
it never happened to me something like that before.

If I have to be honest with you
this product even though it does its job, 
it didn't strike me completely
for that reason I don't think I will repurchase this product again
It is not the best or at the same standards than others 
that I have tried from the drugstore.

That's my opinion, of course.
If you have used this product before,
and you disagree with me
please let me know.

Leave me a comment.

BENEFIT The Pore Fessional Matte Rescue REVIEW


Hi everyone!

Welcome back to my blog.

Today I want to talk about a product
I have found in Birchbox
the December edition

(I leave you the video down below in case you haven't seen it)


This product is

BENEFIT

The PORE Fessional

Matte Rescue


Apparently it retails for £21.50
and it supposes to absorb excess oil in your skin
with a pore-minimising effect

To be honest
I'm not really impressed by this product
I was actually a bit disappointed
especially because at first I thought it to be the well known
Benefit The Porefessional Primer
which I heard so many good things about it

This product feels good, don't get me wrong
it feels like a normal primer
silicon based primer
that you apply after your moisturizer right before the foundation

It didn't blow me away at all...
and to be honest for £21.50...
there is no way this product would be in my wishing list any soon.

I'm actually excited to try out the Porefessional Primer
I might get a sample sized next time

And you..
Have you ever tried this product?
or the Porefessional Primer??

Let me know

ciao

KIKO Milano 3D Hydra Lipgloss in 01 Clear REVIEW


Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog.

Today I want to talk about
this new Lip Product
from

KIKO Milano

I've bought it while I was in Italy
and I finally tested it out so I can tell you what I think about it.

This is their

3D HYDRA LIPGLOSS

in the shade

01 Clear

Back in the days I was really into glossy lips
I actually didn't own any lipsticks before getting into youtube
I was a big fan of clear lip gloss
or slightly tinted..
but nothing too vibrant or saturated.

I was in Kiko and I noticed this product
I wanted to recreate my original, before youtube look
so I picked it up


I'm really happy with this product
the scent is lovely
it smells like cup cake/vanilla
and the gloss is truly 3D
as you can see from the swatch on my lips
it looks like a mirror effect
and the best part is that it's not sticky at all

I totally recommend it

There are 21 shades to pick from
some of them are really opaque
I personally prefer the clear one
just because you can use it on its own
when you are looking for a more natural look
or on top of any lip products for a twist of glossy finish

I love it!


Have you tried this Lip Gloss by KIKO?

Let me know..

ciao
