Today we are looking at the “Keep It Fresh” goodiebox.
It was made after the new year with the thought that it was dark and the winter would never end. That does not mean we will succumb to the darkness (and cold), instead this box was a “Light in the dark” with products to light up your face and refresh your mind.
Ivy Aia – Cleansing Mousse with Vitamin B3
This cleansing mousse is just like magic. When in the flask, it is only a transparent fluid and very watery, but as soon as you pump if out it becomes a mousse.
It is made fantastically without perfume or any other weird ingredients, and smells of absolutely nothing. It is amazing to know that it has been made as carefully as it has.
It cleans my face just fine without drying out my skin, and is overall a good and mild cleansing mousse.
150ml (5oz) costs about 50DKK (6.7Euro) which is actually pretty cheap.
Rodial – Vit C Brightening Mask
This mask is said to be exfoliating, even skin tone and resurface the complexion.
I have had good experience before with their “dragons blood cleansing water” and use it daily, so I was excited to see and feel their other products.
The mask itself smells a little citrusy, and contains a lot of acids (which means it is a strong mask), so be careful if you have irritated skin or injuries.
It has a very thin formula, and is almost a little gel like, but feels like it “dries” into the skin and therefore feels tight.
My skin also felt a little tighter afterwards and my skin looked brighter.
50ml (1.7oz) costs 645DKK (86Euro) but it will go a long way since only a small amount is needed.
You can get it here
Youth Lab. – CC Complete Cream SPF 30
The first thing I noticed was the faint smell of paint. It does not smell bad or strong, but I thought it was a little funny, and it made me wonder what it was made of.
It has been dermatologically tested, and should be paraben & gluten free (but I still wonder where the smell comes from)
It gives a little bit on colour to the skin, but not as much as I thought it would. It does look very pigmented when out of the tube.
It doesn’t really “sink” into the skin in any way and I do not think it is a product I would use again (yes, the smell is a huge turn-off); beside this, the colour is way to orange on my skin.
If you are interested though, is costs about 240DKK (32Euro) and can be bought here
Laritzy cosmetics – fine dew pot illuminateur in bot
This is the second creamy highlighter I have tried, and the first one I tried turned out disappointing me really bad, so I am excited to see if this one is just as bad (I really do not hope so)
It smells exactly like a stress ball, which is kind of weird and unexpected.
It has an absolutely stunning rose colour, and is easy distributed on the skin. I think this product might work better as a shimmery blush or maybe a subtle highlighter since it is very pigmented. I am very interested in trying out other colours from them because this one it so beautiful, shimmery and pigmented.
It is really easy taking off, do not stick anywhere and leaves no traces. I am impressed!
It costs 130dkk (17,4 Euro) and can be bought on their website
Goodiebox – Beauty Blender
Compared to some of the other products from goodiebox, I am really impressed with this one!
The sponge itself is very nice and squishy – it is cute and pink.
I use this beauty blender every day, and it blends very well. It does not streak or clump, but helps my makeup distribute prettily.
Unfortunately, I made the mistake the first time to not dampen it – I know, I know, I am ashamed – simply because I am lazy, so it has taken a lot of colour from my products. Afterwards though I remember to dampen it (almost every time) so now my makeup goes a long way.
It costs 120 DKK (16 Euro) and is found on their own website
What do you guys think, and what is your favorite beauty blender??
I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time!
