This goodiebox is an old one (many of the upcoming goodieboxes is from last year, but I really want to test out and show you everything about the old products just like the new ones!)
The box was called Hi And Bye and was meant as a hi to everything summer, travels, blue skies and summer dresses.
Bye was meant for the short winter days, cold weather and fat creams.
That is why the box contains light products, that makes you happy and ready for a great summer!
Garnier – Micellar Cleansing Water
This cleansing water could be one of my favorites (but I have a lot of cleansers to I take one at a time).
It is perfume free and made for normal and sensitive skin which is perfect for me because that means there will be no itching or stinging even when coming close to the eyes.
This product removes dirt and grime fast and (furious…) effective and feels really light on the skin.
You can buy 400 ml (13.5 oz) for 70DKK (9.4 Euro)
Vichy – aqualia thermal rehydrating cream – Light
This cream I have almost used up completely already. I have been used this every time after a shower (after using the Evolve organic beauty – hyaluronic serum 200 first) and I am a fan.
It is made with 97% natural ingredients and gives an instantly feeling of fresh, moisturized skin without getting greasy since it is absorbed into the skin almost immediately.
It was really hard finding one specific price, so an estimate is, that it costs around 200DKK (26,8 Euro) for 50ml (1,7oz)
Løwén – Beyond – Volume & Curl Mascara
This mascara is my absolutely favorite and has been that for almost a year now.
My lashes get a beautiful lift and become even longer and fuller without looking unnatural (mind the picture though, right now my mascara is ready to be thrown out, so this is not a 100% accurate picture of how my lashes looked before it got too old. Before they looked just as long but not as clumpy as the picture (in fact it was not clumpy at all))
The mascara contains a length giving serum called biotinoyl-complex that gives your lashes a boost, and is made in cooperation with asthma-allergy Danmark. This makes sure there is no weird things in your mascara that can cause allergies.
If you want this mascara, the company has changed name and is now called lavinde. It costs around 180DKK (24Euro)
Psst: this mascara even won a Danish Beauty Award!
I got mine here (I bought an extra one just in case…)
Paese – Diamond Eyeshadow
This eyeshadow gives a natural shimmery look with a metallic shine, and the colour is so perfect it could look stunning on just about everyone!
You can use it both wet and dry all depending on how much pigment you want.
It costs 90DKK (12 Euro)
Ilse Jacobsen – Sea Buckthorn Body Lotion & Body Shampoo
I am a little disappointed with this duo because it felt a little meh to me.
Ilse Jacobsen is a great designer, who started out designing simple, elegant and beautiful rubberboots. (she was one of the first persons to show, that rubberboots didn’t just have to be practical (and ugly) they could be chic, elegant, beautiful AND practical at the same time) so I was really excited to see what she has made with this duo.
The packaging is really simple and pretty, but the products itself is not really worldbreaking.
The body lotion has a mild scent, and feels smooth to the touch while moisturizing your body.
The body shampoo on the other hand has a way to strong scent for me. It did the job cleaning my body just fine though.
All in all, I like the body lotion, but the body shampoo wasn’t really my style.
Mostly I am sad, because the products didn’t live up to my (maybe too) high expectaions.
They cost 112DKK (15 Euro) for 295ml (10 oz)
ZIAJA – Manuka Tree Deeply Cleansing Peeling Paste
This peeling paste took me 110% by surprise!!
I have tried A LOT of peeling products in my time and every single one that told me they were deeply cleansing, were cleansing pretty normally
With this I mean, they did peel my skin, and felt just fine, but I never really felt or saw a DEEP cleansing… before this Peeling Paste met my skin.
While massaging the paste into my skin I really FELT the peeling effect. It felt really nice, and almost like changing my old skin into a new and better one.
After washing the paste off and seeing my face, it looked much brighter and it actually reduced my pores and removed some of my blackheads.
My skin felt perfectly ready for further products to be absorbed into my new, clean and fresh skin.
I will be using this as much as possible (but not too much of course) from now on!
It only costs 30DKK (4Euro) for 75ml (2.5 oz) (that’s insanely cheap!!!)
Clean- Lovegrass Eau de Parfum
This product was just a sample, and I used it up already. That is also why I do not have any pictures of it.
It smelled really fresh and clean (ha. ha.)
30ml (1oz) costs 400DKK (53,6 Euro)
Have any of you ever tried any of these and what do you think?
I am absolutely in love with both the Peeling Paste and the Mascara!! ❤
I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time 😊
