Sunny Side Up – Goodiebox Review  

Sunny Side Up – Goodiebox Review  

 

June’s box was called Sunny Side Up, and unfortunately the box was delayed a week, and therefore came when I was on vacation. This means I haven’t had time to review the box before now.

Sunny Side Up is not just the classic Eggs, but also an opportunity to look at the world from a positive perspective. That’s why this box is about giving your body and face a little extra love and care; because it is easier to build happiness when our “base” is happy (that meaning our bodies).

 

 

Seacret – Makeup Remover Wipes

65936339_440343789880286_9041295419555971072_n

Their words:

For all skin types.
Effectively cleans waterproof makeup ideal for both home use and on the go!

Original Dead Sea Ingredients. Not tested on animals. Paraben Free. Hypoallergenic tested.

 

My Thoughts:

These are very soft wipes, they smell very clean, and feel very gentle.

Removes makeup fairly easy, eyes took about 4-5 times going over them though (which Is pretty normal for me, the mascara went off easily, there was just a lot of it)

Could definitely feel the product on them; when I was done using it, my hands felt slippery because of the product

Packaging is nice- I love black –  and the “open/close” space gets easily sealed again after use, so there gets no air into the package

One wipe was enough for my daily makeup face (but so be honest, after a long day of work and sweat, there is not much makeup left anyways)

My face felt very good afterwards, it didn’t feel dried up nor sticky, which probably is because of the vitamin E, aloe Vera and minerals from the dead sea.

All in all very good and “stable” makeup remover wipes

 

The price is 190DKK (25Euro) so honestly they are were expensive, and therefore I would not buy them again. Found on their website

 

 

Polaar – Ice Source Moisturizing gel

65956534_471250397024856_8205413046231760896_n.jpg

Their words:

IceSource Glacier Water Jelly is specially formulated to moisturize combination to oily skin. A gifted treatment with a unique objective: to intensely and durably moisturize the skin. A wave of freshness immediately envelops you in contact with this melting gel. The skin is soft, fresh, comfortable and regains its ideal moisture level.

 

My Thoughts:

Actually, put some in my nose because I tried to smell it, and I couldn’t smell anything. Thought: well at least it is good that it does not smell strong or bad

After applying, didn’t feel like I really needed to wash my fingers which I usually never feel (my fingers are usually a little sticky, but not really this time) I did wash my fingers though, because it is never nice to have stuff on your hands if you need to use them right away.

I felt my skin afterwards, and when I gently touched my face, it felt really smooth and baby-like, but if I touch fiercely (does that make sense?) then it gets a little warmer and also a bit sticky

It is cool that it is made with Glacier Water, and the packaging fits the theme perfectly

Overall my skin felt comfortable, and smooth afterwards, but not AS moisturized as I want (I was on the verge of wanting to put more on, because I felt like I maybe used a little too little before) but it could also just be because my skin is more combination/dry than combination/oily.

It costs 270DKK (36.2Euro) and you can get it here

 

 

Rituals – The Ritual Of Karma Foot Balm

65940184_2248916685207325_120615686832652288_n.jpg

Their words:

Take care of your feet, then they will take care of you! The Ritual of Karma foot creme made to nourish and cool tired feet, make them soft, supple and give the ultimate nourishment. The Crème contains Chinese mint and doesn’t just nourish the feet – the whole body benefit from the fact, that they are carefully nourished.

This is translated as well as possible 😊

 

My thoughts:

Another product that I (almost) put into my nose when trying to smell it…

The only time that I really felt like I got the smell, was when I smeared it onto my feet. It started to smell faintly of something, but not so strong that I could really define it.

I always really like rituals-even though I have never really bought anything from their brand. I have always got their items in Goodieboxes or as other “gifts”. I think their products are cool, their packaging is simple and pretty, and they always have such great thoughts. Their saying goes: We are not here to sell beauty, we are here to give you a good feeling.
They deliver indeed, with their many different “brands”, rituals of karma, and rituals of happy Buddha are examples of some of those I have tried before.
Rituals are even cruelty free, and are trying to limit waste when designing their packaging.

I used a small amount on my feet, and they instantly felt moisturized and calmed. I put on some socks and let my feet relax, and it felt as great as ever.

Actually I bought the limited edition The Ritual of Karme Goodiebox as soon as I tried this one. I just really love Rituals.

You can get it for 90DKK (12.05Euro) on their website

 

 

Masque Me Up – Aftersun Sheet Mask

65894923_321857532033057_6271386257775919104_n.jpg

Their words:

In short:

Masque Me Up Aftersun Sheet Mask is a perfect mask to use after sunbathing. The mask is cooling, moisturizing and therefore protects the skin from dehydration. It is enriched with watermelon-extract which relieves irritation and works calming and cooling. It also contains coconut juice that gives the skin extra moisture and has an anti-age effect.

 

My thoughts:

First things first; I am not that fond of sheet masks. They are indeed easy to put on, but I feel like they are always a little too slippery to actually stay on the skin.
Nonetheless I was excited to try this Sheet Mask on, just because I loved Masque Me Up’s foot mask socks from a previous Goodiebox.

Now to the actually trying on.

When I opened the package it actually squirted out with liquid, and the actually mask was soaked with product. It just felt a little too excessive.

The mask was so wet that I felt like it wouldn’t stay on (but that’s the way I normally feel about sheet masks), and after having it on for five minutes, the liquid that the mask was soaked in slowly moved down my throat almost making my shirt wet.

The mask was nice and cold to the skin, and definitely cooled my face, but I couldn’t get over the fact that is was SO wet.

I took it off after about 12 minutes, and I instantly noticed……….

…..

How wet my face was. My face was dripping wet, and even my shirt had been dripped on.
I couldn’t smear the excess product into my skin because there were too much.
I ended up patting it off with a towel, but the product that was left, wasn’t able to be smeared out on my face, because it just stuck.

Overall, I am pretty sad about this one, because I REALLY loved their foot mask socks ☹

 

If you are interested though, you can get it for 50DKK (6.57 Euro) I found it here

 

 

 

Garnier Ambre Solaire – Sensitive Advanced Face Mist SPF 50

66407519_637670256706997_1243347896380686336_n.jpg

Their words:

Garnier Ambre Solaire ultra-light face protection mist helps protect against long term damage from the sun and premature skin ageing whilst hydrating skin at the same time. The fresh ultra-light mist is instantly transparent on skin, non-greasy and can be applied over make-up.

 

My thoughts:

To be honest with you, I have never tried a face mist before, and I am honestly not sure if this one “really” counts as one, since the descriptions sounds like it is just a “spray on” sun screen.

The mist that came out was very even and gentle. It felt a little cold to the skin, but was overall nice.
There were no discomfort and it felt like it quickly went into the skin.

I have to try this one again sometime I actually have to go into the sun for a long time (I am so busy with work the next few weeks that I will not have time to actually go into the sun)

It is really cool that it can be applied over makeup, and I didn’t see any change to my makeup after using this spray.

The product itself only contains 75ml (2.5oz), which is not much, but that is because they have made it to be travel friendly- which is also kind of cool.

Overall I am pleased with it, but I will use it somewhere in the future to really put it to the test.

One bottle costs 90DKK (12Euro) and if you are interested, you can but it on their website

 

 

June’s month review was overall pretty diverse, and there were both a lot of hits, but also a few misses.

 

 

Have you ever tried any of these, and what do you think?

 

And maybe the most important question; what is your favorite face mist?
(help, I need some ideas 😉 )

 

 

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

Beauty Around The world – Goodiebox review    

Beauty Around The world – Goodiebox review    

 

This box has actually been one of my favorites so far (at least one of the ones where I actually still use most of it- mind this one is a old box, I am on vacation so I have not seen the june box yet)

The box brought home some of the world’s best beauty secrets.

We got introduced to some new and exciting products from all over the world, and they are all chosen because of their long, proud traditions and impressive results.

We discover, explore, love and share.

 

This box also contained 5 full size products which was really cool!

 

 

Dr. Botanicals – Moroccan Rose Superfood Facial Oil

The first thing I noticed was the delicious floral smell of roses. The smell makes me all happy and is not too strong, which I think is amazingly done since floral smells easily gets too overwhelming.

When the oil had really sinked into the skin, my skin felt calmed and amazingly not greasy after the oil.

It was a little difficult applying because oil is so runny, so it can be a little hard to not apply too much. 3 drops should be enough.

You can get 30ml (1oz) for 338DKK (45,3Euro)

Dr. Botanicals- Moroccan Rose Superfood Facial Oil

Beauty secret one – Morocco.

Moroccan women daily use a few drops of  olive oil to keep their skin healthy and young. This is because olive oil helps with the skin’s elasticity, protects against sun damage and aging.

 

 

Piz Buin – ultra light hydrating sun spray

This sun spray is easy to use and smear. It did not feel sticky at all after applying, and is easy dispensing. You just have to twist the top, and spray.

It has a SPF of 15 and in the hours, I was out, I felt no irritation or sunburns.

All in all a great sunscreen that is super easy to apply, and I have kept on using it since I got it.

One bottle costs 150DKK (20 Euro)

My current favorite sun spray

Beauty secret two – Korea

Korean women are great at beauty, and therefore has their own term: K-Beauty. This is different and innovative products like sheet masks, snail slime or konjac sponges.

 

 

Nails inc. – INC. redible Jelly Shot Lip Quencher

This lip product comes from Japan and is a moisture giving lip conditioner, that moisturizes (duh) and repair your lips. It is made with rice bran oil, and gives your lips a light rose glow.

I absolutely love the packaging of this lip product! It is simple and beautiful, and the flower and glitter inside makes it feel even more luxurious. I got the colour ex-revenge.

The product is smooth and light on the lips and do not feel sticky at all. The colour is subtle and I honestly love absolutely everything about this product. My lips feel moisturized and comfortable all whenever I wear this.

It only costs about 66 DKK (8.8 Euro) which is very affordable.

dsc03499.jpg
I a just in LOVE with the flower inside of this product

Beauty Secret three – Japan

Rice bran oil is considered one of the healthiest oils.
It has been extracted from the outer layer on brown rice, which is actually the most vitamin-rich part.

 

 

Wes sub company – soothing aloe after sun

I had been out for a short while in the sun, and my legs started feeling a little itchy, so I whipped out this after sun gel in the hope that it would give my legs some aid.

It is made with Aloe Vera, which is one of my absolutely favorite plant since is can be used for so many things!

I was very impressed about how fast it soothed my legs, they felt instantly non-itchy and cooled. I will definitely be using this again after being in the sun.

It only costs 40DKK (5.4Euro) and it definitely works wonders!

DSC03505
Aloe Vera ❤

Beauty Secret four – Africa

If you run out of Aloe Vera, you can go explore your fridge.
Cold milk products like yoghurt or regular milk, has a calming effect on the skin.

 

 

Zenz – Paddle Brush Combi

At first I felt like the smell of this brush was really strong, but after it had got some air, the strong bamboo smell slowly disappeared.

I really love this brush actually, and it is the brush I normally reach for when needing to brush my hair.

The shaft is made of environmentally friendly bamboo, which is stronger, lighter and more durable than normal tree. And of course it is also MUCH better than using cheap plastic brushes; that is when thinking about quality over quantity.

The brush head itself is a mix of nylon and boar hair, and I feel like it gives a good but not too rough brushing without tugging too much in the hair.

It costs 200DKK (26.75Euro) and will stay with you for a very long time.

dsc03506.jpg
The brush that saved my life – or at least my hair!

Beauty Secret five – Asia

Your scalps natural oils are the best care for your hair, and therefore it is a good idea to brush your hair from root to tip, to make sure your hair gets nourished all the way through.

 

 

These are the products, and did you knows from this box, but now I am excited to know:

Where in the world does your favorite product come from?

 

 

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

 

 

 

Keep It Fresh – Goodiebox Review  

Keep It Fresh – Goodiebox Review  

 

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.

dsc03530.jpg

 

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

dsc03534.jpg

 

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

dsc03535.jpg

 

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

dsc03532.jpg

 

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

dsc03529.jpg

 

 

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!

 

 

On The Go – Goodiebox review

On The Go – Goodiebox review

 

A new box has arrived and it has a beautiful sky blue colour. The name of the box is on the go, and is all about us going to work or home, and overall going anywhere. They made this box to take with you “on the go” to make anything easier and happier no matter where you are going.

 

The box contains these things:

 

Goodiebox -Zip Bag

This was the first thing I noticed because it was well… pink, stringy? And made out of plastic (Which I am NOT a fan of)
Goodiebox made this bag themselves, and I am really sad to say this- but it just feels a little like a cheap knockoff (and the fact that it is plastic just makes me so sad…)

Honestly I got no more to say here, so lets just get going

DSC03582

 

Goodiebox – tooth brush

We are starting out with two kind of disappointing items.

Once again I notice that the toothbrush is… pink (well it DOES make sense since I goodiebox’s colour is pink) but I would have loved to see something else for once

Another thing I noticed here, is that the toothbrush is made in china AND made out of plastic – cheap plastic. I just get so sad because I feel like they could do so much more, like using reusable material or wood (or something like that)

Nonetheless it IS a very standard toothbrush so it is not anything out of the ordinary, or really bad – I honestly just hoped for more.

DSC03584

 

Now on to something completely else…

 

Niré Kabuki Brush

Let’s just take a moment… A short moment to appreciate this absolutely STUNNING, elegant and all around beautiful packaging. I feel like I could just sit down and stare at it all night long.

They even have a little writing on the side telling a little about them which is kind of cute. Their writing says:
“Niré Beauty is a make-up brush brand, designed to a professional standard, blending form and function. Believing the perfect tools for make-up are as unique as the person holding the brush, this versatile kabuki brush was designed for you”

A little further down they have these 3 amazing circles telling a little about the product. It is:
Vegan Friendly
Hypoallergenic
Not Tested On Animals

All in all I am already (just with the packaging) sold.

The brush itself it pretty simple designed (unfortunately not at beautiful as the packaging- just try to imagine a brush that pretty)

It has nice soft hairs without compromising the hardness of the actual brush itself, and it picks up a LOT of pigment, so please be careful.

It costs about 109 DKK (14.6 Euro) depending on where you buy it

DSC03594DSC03597dsc03596-1.jpg

 

Lavinde – Refreshing Eye Makeup Remover

The first thought that hit me when I saw this product was “I know this brand… but where from…” and then it hit me. I am so stupid.

Lówen changed their name to Lavinde a while back because that name is more recognizable  this way to non-danish people (and easier to say out loud 😛 )

Lavinde has made my all time favorite mascara of all time ever in the world (Okay I think you understand)

I was excited to try this makeup remover out because I love their mascara, so this remover has a lot to live up to.

It says to saturate a cotton pad and then let soak on lashes for 5-10 seconds and then pas off. I had to rub a couple of times to get all my mascara off (which is not unusual) and it came of smoothly without stinging even a little bit, so it is a very gentle remover which I love.

The design is simple and cute which only makes me happy, and the only thing I noticed was a little annoying (or at least unusual) was that it was not so easy to squeeze anything out. I had to shake it out instead (which makes me wuestion if I actually am doing this right?) but at least it makes sure I do not end up just soaking my cotton pad and get the remover all over myself or my table

It costs about 110DKK (14.6 Euro) for 150 ml (5.07 oz) buy it here

DSC03603

 

Beaver – Cherry Blossom Shampoo

Cuuuuute packaging – YES I know this is pink too, but it goes with the theme of cherry blossoms.

It smells beautiful and flowery (who would have known)

When I was in the shower, in some weird way this shampoo made me massage my scalp even more than I usually do (not in a harsh or damaging way- more like I wanted to be cleaner than usual just because I smelled and used this shampoo)

It costs about 160DKK (21.4Euro) for 350ml (11.8oz) and I recommend buying it if you like subtle flowery smells 😊

DSC03581

 

Balance Me – Natural Protection Moisturiser SPF 25

First and foremost, this moisturizer is 99% natural! That is just amazing, since most of beauty products are made with at least some type of unnatural ingredients.

The applicator is really convenient- tube like, which makes it easy to distribute.

The creme itself is very thick and reminds me more of sunscreen than a creme. This also makes it a little harder to apply, and I actually used quite a bit for my whole face. Other than this my face did feel moisturized and I love that it has SPF 25.

The smell felt a little citrusy, but it could also be lavender. (Lavender is actually in the content list, citrus is not, so we will go with lavender 😛 )

You can buy 40 ml(1.35oz) for 300DKK (40 euro)

DSC03589

 

ModelCo – Matte Baked Bronzer

This bronzer looks really nice, and gave a natural glow.

I did use waaaaay to much to start with, but if you just remember to not use too much, it gives a really beautiful summery glow!

If you use too much though, it will collect itself in a patch – like the picture below

The design itself is very neutral which I like.

It costs 190DKK (25.4 Euro)

 

GOSH – Giant Blush

This one was a rollercoaster.

I was looking forward to trying this blush so much, because it is my first stick blush.

Unfortunately the first thing that happened when I opened it = the blush killed itself on my desk.

I was really sad about this but my sadness quickly went away after talking with the amazing goodiebox team. They promised to send a new one my way, so that I can actually use it as intended. Yay for customer service!

The colour is really pretty (yes I used the broken part by taking it with my bare hands- I just had to see the swatch) It was really pigmented and creamy, and can give a very nice subtle blush if you just use a little bit. I am indeed impressed by the colour of it!

I’ll be looking forward to getting one that is not broken so that I can start playing!

You can get it for 100DKK (13.38Euro)

 

All in all I had very confused feelings about this box. Some things were amazing- some not so much.

What I am most excited to hear though, is about you guys!

 

Have any of you tried these, and what did you think?

 

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

Looking back at reviews- do I use it?

Looking back at reviews- do I use it?

 

I have been writing about and trying out a lot of products recently, and how you feel about the products firsthand is a good sign for knowing if you will use it later

 

Today we are looking back on some of the products I liked, that I am-or am not- using still.

 

James Read – H20 Tan Drops Face (again)

I wrote about this product in the “Dancing in the rain” review, and I said I would keep on trying it for a while to see if it would actually give me a bit tanner skin.

After using it for almost a week I noticed that my skin did get a nice glow, and it does seem tanner. Not dark or unnatural, but it does look like I enjoyed the sun for quite some days. My face looks healthy and fresh, and I am quite impressed.

I am a little afraid of using too much, because I do not want my face to have another colour than the rest of my skin. While trying this on my face, I mixed it with my normal face cream on my hand, and I have noticed that my hand have also gotten tanner (which looks a little stupid because my other hand is still pale as ever)

I do like this product, but I definitely need a plate or something to mix on from now on xD

Beside this, I only use it once in a while now, since I do not need that much of a tan, but just a little glow.

DSC03522

 

Clean – Rain Eau De Parfum

This one I really liked, and said I would definitely use again…

I have kept that promise faitfully, and used it almost every day since then!

The smell it fresh, nice and wet, which makes me all happy and warm inside.

When this one is used up, I just NEED a new one! ❤

DSC03521

 

You can read the “Dancing in the Rain” review here

 

 

Raunsborg – Hand Cream

This one I talked about in the “Powered by” goodiebox and I really liked it! It was smooth and comfortable with a subtle and clean scent without being sticky.

I wanted to use this way more, but honestly, I am really bad at using hand creams (shame on me), so I only ended up using it about once or twice afterwards.

I will try using it more though, because it is one of the best hand creams I have used in ages.

Vichy – Aqualia thermal rehydrating cream – light

When I posted the review with this one, I had almost used it up completely. Now there is absolutely no more left.

I absolutely adored this cream (especially the fact that is was made with 97% natural ingredients) and felt rich without feeling greasy.

I have not bought a new one yet, since I need to use up some of the houndreds creams I have at home right now. It has been stored in my “need to buy again” basket.

DSC03428

 

Ziaja – Manuka Tree Deply Cleansing Peeling Paste

One peeling product I will forever remember is this peeling paste. It took me 100% by surprise by being so amazing, useful and effective as it was, and I use it at least a couple of times a week.

I will be using this for the time to come too, and I WILL repurchase it when it becomes empty.

It was in the HI and BYE goodiebox review, and you can find it here

DSC03422

 

Lavinde – Beyond – Volume & curl mascara

This mascara is STILL my favorite even though I am not using it right now (I am trying out another mascara-also for the blog 😉 )

I got it in the HI and BYE goodiebox, and it lifts, curls, and makes my lashes seem stronger and more beautiful in a very natural way.

This mascara has also been stored in my “need to buy again” basket, and will be in my heart forever! (or at least until I find something better-if that is possible)

If you want to know more about this fantastic mascara, or any of the other products in the HI and BYE goodiebox, you can read the review here

DSC03421

 

Have any of you guys tried these yet and what do you think? I’m curiuos to know 😀

 

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

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)

you can buy it here

DSC03430.JPG

 

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

DSC03428.JPG

 

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!!!)

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
