Goodiebox review

Goodiebox review

 

As some of you might know (at least the ones of you following me on Instagram) I have been getting goodieboxes from goodieboxDenmark for quite a while.

Goodiebox is a subscribtion box that you can get once a month, and it delivers different beauty products each time.

I have been thinking about reviewing them in a while, but just took the leap now.
From now on though, I will review the products that I get so that you (and I) will get to know the products even better (and maybe think about keeping some of the products in our stash)

The beauty box from march, is called “The Goodieprice” and in here they put some of the products they are thinking should have the Goodieprice.

This basically means, that they get a product into the Danish Beauty Award, and it will be one of these!:

 

 

REN Clean Skincare- Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream

My first impression was that this cream seems very rich.
Often when a cream seems rich to me, it also easily gets greasy. I was very impressed when I massaged it onto my face and noticed that neither my hands or face seemed greasy at all afterwards!
Not much cream is needed for one use so even though I got a sample (15ml) it will last for a very long time

You can buy it here

GOSH- Growth Serum

I’ve only used this serum once, and will use it the next few weeks (it says it should be working after two weeks), to make sure how well it actually works.
It should be used at night before going to bed so that it can “work” at night.
I am a little skeptical about this product because it sounds a little unreal that you might get longer lashes just by using it in two weeks.
Excited to see how this will go.

Buy it here

 

 

Sandstone Scandinavia – Mascara Intense

This mascara is absolutely great especially if you have sensitive skin (or wears contacts) since it is free of parabens and parfum. This means that even though I was very close to my eyes (read: almost poked my eye out) it didn’t hurt.
It is easy to apply and just a few coats is enough to make a big difference. (just look at the picture- one eye with mascara, one without! sorry for the blurry photo)
It should hold 12 hours, but I only had it on for 4 hours before having to shower. My eyes looked just the same all four hours, with no smudging or fallings.

Beside this, it contains Vitamin A, C and E and therefore helps with making healthier and happier lashes.

Get it here

 

 

Rodial- Dragon’s Blood Cleansing Water

This cleansing water does not only have an amazing name, but also works amazingly.
With only a few swipes, I was able to take off my makeup and the applicator makes sure you don’t use too much. Beware though: even though you can take eye makeup off with this, it might sting a little in the eyes if you rub too much.

You can get yours here

 

 

Rituals- Happy Foaming Shower Gel

This product has a very fitting name. I took it with me in the shower to use, and got instantly happy when I saw the gel in my hands turn into foam. It was a very fun shower, and the shower gel smelled very good.

I’m a little sad about the way the product “makes a mess” when it has been used though.

Grab yours here

 

 

Karmameju – HERO pH solution 02

At first, I was a little skeptical about this product. It is meant to bring your pH to a optimal level after we have showered or washed our hands (because the soap and other products we use to shower and so on, changes the pH in our skin). This way it provides the best conditions for your skin to stay healthy.
To me, this sounds a little like the products that are said to do this and that, and actually does nothing.

Nontheless I tried it as soon as I got out of the shower, and I got really impressed.
Normally after a shower, my skin feels really dry (because I LOVE hot water when showering), and after applying this solution, my skin actually went “back” to normal without feeling, dry or uncomfortable.
The only thing I noticed was, as soon as I used it, it stretched a little bit in my skin before going back to normal. My guess is, that this is because I can feel the product going from dry to normal.

Go get yours here

All in all, my absolute favorite was the REN Clean Skincare -Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream because it is one of the first rich creams that I have actually tried without feeling greasy or uncomfortable.

For me, it defenitely deserves the Goodiebox Award!

Easy homemade liquid foundation

Easy homemade liquid foundation

Tofay we have a veeeeeeery short post, a recipe for a 2 ingredients liquid foundation.

You’ll need:

  • Powder (I used an old Manhattan Clearface of mine that was broken)
  • Some sort of crème (I used a man face cream from Derma)

33995723_10213179993122147_1961520922816937984_n.jpg

Start breaking your powder until it is dust.

33941984_10213179993202149_9099063288032919552_n.jpg

Take some of your crème and mix, it into the powder.

Now mix, mix, mix and you get a creamy foundation (i know it looks kind of suspect like this, but you can also put it in a container to make it look a little prettier)

34015749_10213179993522157_1745836182131965952_n.jpg

You can choose yourself how much powder and creme you want to use, more cream=softer but lighter covereage.

 

Tada! Ready to use.  That’s not hard, was it? 😉

 

I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time!

Cat nails

Cat nails

 

For today we will be cute. For today we will make cat nail art!

 

You’ll need:

  • A dotting tool- to make paws
  • A base color (mine is kind of nude- Loreal number 855 called oyster bay)
  • A black nail polish (mine is with a small brush to draw the lines- if you don’t have one, you’ll have to use something like a small brush to draw with)

34483603_10213218638568259_4226397357140344832_n.jpg

 

Start painting your nails in your base color- I know my fingers are blue, that’s from another nail art idea 😉

34366808_10213218638648261_2807006061330956288_n

Use your brush to draw cats with the black polish- I made one fat and one with pointy ears just to make them different. I used the dotting tool for the nose and eyes.

 

Use your dotting tool to make paw like prints on the rest of the fingers

34386207_10213218638968269_7159397585474551808_n

Voila!

You are now pawlicious

R2D2 nail art

R2D2 nail art

 

Aren’t you getting tired of these geeky nails already? No? that’s good, because I can keep on going for ages!

For today we will get into the Star Wars nail design because well… why not 😊

 

You’ll need:

  • Blue nail polish (I would have liked a darker one, but this is the one I had)
  • White nail polish
  • Silver nail polish
  • Red nail polish
  • Black nail polish
  • A dotting tool
  • A brush (mine is flat and about 0,5cm)

 

First you paint all your nails blue

34691795_10213242378961754_2479848777372925952_n.jpg

 

I then drew a silver line on four of my nails. ( as said in a previously post, you can always clean up, so don’t be afraid of painting a little on yourself)

34700112_10213242378841751_7108276363571757056_n.jpg

 

The last nail I drew a line on and then two lines on the top (they have to face slightly against eachother) and lastly a small line In the right side of the nail

34686101_10213242378681747_8534285259091476480_n

 

Then I painted on the white stripes. On the four nails I painted two stripes on each, one thin and one thicker like this.

34673611_10213242378521743_4799581534728224768_n

 

Then on the fifth nail I just painted the bottom up until the silver stripe as seen on the picture

34752199_10213242378361739_8959293318370426880_n.jpg

 

Now I painted the stripes on R2D2’s body, and then two dots on his face as his uhh… eye and sensor I guess?

34844033_10213242378241736_2788727406368653312_n.jpg

Sorry for the mess on this nail 😛

 

Now all is left is to draw a black dot in his “eye” and a red dot in the blue area to the right.

34701208_10213242377201710_2472966186770366464_n.jpg

 

That is all, this one is a little more complicated than some of the others, but I really enjoyed making it because R2D2 is such a cute icon 😊

34716266_10213242376281687_7422412663897980928_n

 

I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time ❤

Deadpool nail art

Deadpool nail art

 

Who doesn’t love a superhero? Today we will make another pair of nerdy nails with one uhm… pretty special superhero. Deadpool, that is.

 

I’ve seen both the movies and they are so unique I could not miss to make Deadpool nail art

 

You’ll need:

  • Black nail polish
  • Red nail polish
  • White nail polish
  • Dotting tool

33642778_10213163720915352_4947102369876803584_n1.jpg

 

Start painting the town red- well at least your nails

33824443_10213169833548164_7142450378963943424_n.jpg

 

Now make some fancy Deadpool stripes on all fingers beside one- that one will be the mask- then take the chosen finger and paint on two diamond shapes for his mask with the dotting tool or the pen from the black polish

33691398_10213169833948174_1976956373853798400_n.jpg

 

Please give him some eyes too – just two dots would be fine

33850848_10213169834628191_8883568174449033216_n.jpg

 

And that’s all! Now you are ready to take over the world AND look good while doing it!

33720281_10213169834868197_3965917219954622464_n.jpg

 

 

PS: I know I missed my thumb, but it’s just like the three other fingers with stripes 🙂

 

I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time ❤

Homemade lip scrub

Homemade lip scrub

 

Ever feel like your lips need a little love and tenderness? Well you can give them some, and it’s cheap and incredible easy 😊

 

I gathered 5 different homemade recipes for lip scrubs, and they are all ready for you to choose from.
All five recipes are great for exfoliating and creating blood flow in your lips. Just take a little from the jar and rub it on your lips, then wash it off with warm water.
Which one you want to make is entirely up to you.
They can last up to 3 weeks stored in a cool and dry place, out of direct sunlight 😊

For all of these recipes. If you don’t feel like using brown sugar but instead regular white sugar, just do it. Both the sugar and the oil can be replaced with another kind of sugar or oil.
Beside this, if you want the honey to be easier to work with (if you have a firm honey) just heat it for a few seconds in your microwave 🙂

 

I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time! ❤
