HI AND BYE – Goodiebox review

HI AND BYE – Goodiebox review

 

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)

It can be bought here

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)

in case you are interested, you can get it here

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!!!)

get yours here!!

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 😊

Goodiebox review update- do -I even use it???

Goodiebox review update- do -I even use it???

 

Around two weeks ago I posted my goodiebox review. Today I want to tell you how it went (with the things that needed more time to try out) and if I actually use some of them now.

 

REN Clean skincare- Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream

I haven’t used this since last even though it was my favorite product. The reason? I am currently using another day cream and want to finish that one before really going into this one. Will be using it very soon though, and I am still very impressed by it.

GOSH – Growth Serum

I have been using this for around two weeks now, and see no difference in the length of my lashes (sadly). Normally my eyes can start to water when I go to bed at night, but that does not happen very often.
After putting the GOSH- growth serum on in the evening, I have noticed that my eyes start to water every single night.
It doesn’t feel stingy or irritating but it is really annoying with my eyes watering, since I always end up having to dry them.
I fear this might be why the serum doesn’t work for me- I end up drying it off when drying my eyes in the evening.

Sandstone Scandinavia – Mascara Intense

I have only used this mascara a few times, since I am very loyal to my normal mascara, and want to use the old one up, before really going into the new.

Rodial- Dragon’s Blood Cleansing Water

I use this every single morning and every single evening to clean my skin.
I still think it wipes of both makeup and excess dust/grime perfectly- even though I am still careful around the eye area.

Rituals – Happy Foaming Shower Gel

I have used this a few times while showering, but only when I take a long, relaxing bath, since the smell and texture of this shower gel makes me both happy and relaxed.

Karmameju – HERO pH solution 02

I have mostly used this product after washing the dishes (because we do not have a dishwasher) and I feel like it helps my skin back to “normal”. My hands do feel a little greasy afterwards though if I accidently use a little too much.

DSC03367

I hope this gives you an idea about the “quality” of the products compared to the ones I use.
Some products might seem absolutely amazing when you try them out, but if they just end up sitting on your desk forever, they might not actually be worth it.

 

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

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!
