CeraVe Eye Repair Cream for dark circles and puffiness-(mini)review

ABOUT THE PRODUCT:

When it comes to the skin around the eyes, puffiness and dark circles are some of the most common concerns. Fortunately, the right eye cream can help smooth and brighten this delicate skin to help you look your best. Look for an eye cream formulated with ceramideshyaluronic acid and niacinamide to deliver hydration while also restoring the skin’s natural barrier. It’s also important to use a product that is ophthalmologist-tested for safety, like CeraVe Eye Repair Cream, which is suitable for use around the eyes.

CeraVe Eye Repair Cream features a Marine & Botanical Complex to help brighten the entire eye area. Suitable for all skin types, our non-greasy, fast-absorbing, fragrance-free eye cream also contains three essential ceramides, hyaluronic acid and niacinamide, plus patented MVE Delivery Technology that releases of moisture for prolonged skin hydration

My Thoughts

This one was given to me by my friend because it didn’t suit her skin. I have heard many good things about the brand, so I was excited to try it. I’m using it already for around 2 months, and here are my thoughts :

First of all, the texture is pretty thick. It doesn’t really have a scent, and that’s amazing. I’m someone who has awful dark circles, So How does my undereye area feel after this cream? To be honest...I don’t see any big changes. Yes, my undereye area is much smoother…but my dark circles are still there for good.Maybe it’s better for puffy eyes, but thankfully I don’t get puffy eyes, so I can’t comment on that. Another not-so-great thing, when even if the little bit of cream gets into the eye vision gets pretty blurry for some time and that’s super annoying. Would I repurchase it? Nope. Would I recommend it? Not really.

Sharing some of my favorites-July (2021 edition)

Hello My Darlings!How are you?How’s your summer going?July was A LOT(more about it here). Did some hikes(about one of them you can read here). And now,let’s dive into the post.I haven’t done this for some time but here we go…It’s MY FAVORITES OF THE MONTH TIME.

eberhard-grossgasteiger-NvesrDbsrL4-unsplash

L’oreal BB c’est magic cream

I got it from my friend, it was the wrong color match for her(in Latvia you can’t exchange cosmetic products) and she was like-You are super pale, here you go. And if you know me, I always love to try new products. So…I loved this one. It’s not oily and doesn’t break me out. The color is not the best match( I have Light), but in the summer it’s good.

From Martin Luther’s Wittenberg Theses by Meika Roth-Beka and Klauss Enzikat

This was very interesting. It’s a short story of Martin Luther and his Theses that changed the Christian world. It’s a picture book, but it’s not for children(I would say it’s for ages 12 and up). It would be a good supplement for history lessons.

First Beauty haul of the year(NEW SKINCARE)

Hello, My Darlings! It’s New year and I got some new stuff. Some of those products I have already tried and some not yet. Let’s dive into the goodies.

Disclaimer – I have oily acne-prone skin, so what works for me, can not work for you.

1.NEUTROGENA Skin Detox 2-in-1 Clay Wash Mask

I’m pretty happy with this one! As a daily wash, it has a nice cooling effect, easy to clean the face. As a face mask, this one is very interesting. It doesn’t dry on the face, the cooling effect doesn’t stop until you take it off, and even after that you still feel the tingling. Overall a nice product. 

2.Garnier Pure Active Charcoal Peel-Off Mask 50ml

Ehhh…..I have mixed feelings about this one. Yes, I have tried it just once, so maybe my opinion will change. The problem is- it doesn’t peel off properly. If you didn’t put a generous amount on the area, it a pain to take off…But it does clean out the pores on the nose amazingly.

3.RdeL young profi palette eyeshadow 

Very shiny, easy to swatch, has a light perfume scent. This was a gift, so still haven’t played with it really.

4.eco laboratorie argana hair oil

This works more like a hair mask than anything. Nice scent, lots of product, still have to try.

5.SVR Sebiaclear Gel Moussant 200ml

Nice face wash, nothing special. Light scent, gentle wash, helps with acne. It doesn’t contain alcohol or parabens. Suitable for sensitive skin.

6.Garnier Eye Makeup Remover 2 in 1 

I know I know, everyone has tried it…but this my first eye makeup remover from Garnier. It has no scent, not extra greasy(and that’s good). Will see how I like it.

I got “Oriflame “Love Nature” with Organic Tea Tree and Lime” line for Christmas

Hello, My Darlings! So for Christmas, my dear friend Alina got me this Oriflame “Love Nature” set. She knows I love the gel wash and the scrub(I have already talked about some products I have already tried here) that’s why Alina got me the whole line as a gift.

I’m so excited, I have already tried most of the products(for like 2 weeks)

Here are my thoughts!

Purifying Gel Wash with Organic Tea Tree & Lime

About the product :

Formulated without parabens and featuring organic Tea Tree essential oil and super ingredient Lime, this light-foaming floral-citrus scented gel wash works to instantly purify the skin while removing make-up, impurities, excess sebum, and oil.
Blemish-prone skin? Never fear, it also contains salicylic acid to help target blemishes. It’s also dermatologically-tested and non-comedogenic.
And on top of doing your skin a favor, you’ll be helping Mother Nature because its formulation is silicone-free and biodegradable!

My thoughts :

One of my favorite face wash EVER. I love how good it cleans my face , it gives a light cooling effect I totally adore. My oily skin loves it!

Mattifying Face Lotion with Organic Tea Tree & Lime

About the product:

Created using organic Tea Tree essential oil and super ingredient Lime, it’s a match made in heaven for oily skin. Designed for day and night use, it helps to deliver lightweight hydration and works to leave skin perfectly mattified, purified, and shine-free, while controlling excess sebum and oil. It even contains salicylic acid to target blemish-prone skin.

And, as you’d expect, it’s dermatologically-tested, non-comedogenic, paraben-free and finished with a beautifully uplifting floral-citrus scent.

My thoughts :

The first time using this face cream I didn’t like it , it felt too oily at that moment. But after a week of using it…I really like it. For now, my skin likes it, no new acne and that’s amazing. My boyfriend did try it too and he liked it , so it’s BF approved.

Purifying 2-in-1 Mask & Scrub with Organic Tea Tree & Lime

About the product:

Designed as a convenient multi-purpose mask and scrub, it’s infused with all the goodness of organic Tea Tree essential oil and super ingredient Lime, making it the go-to solution for a deep and meaningful cleanse. But it won’t stop there… It also works to exfoliate your skin, helps to minimize the appearance of pores, and even contains salicylic acid to target blemish-prone skin.

More good news is, it’s alcohol and paraben-free and dermatologically tested – not to mention kind to the planet because the formulation uses only natural-origin exfoliating particles and is biodegradable and silicone-free!

My thoughts :

I like this one, it’s pretty good for everyday use. Very gentle scrub, but still gets the job done. The mask gives this cooling feeling (just like the gel), which helps with acne.

Purifying Face Oil with Organic Tea Tree & Lime

About the product :

Infused with lush organic antibacterial Tea Tree essential oil and super ingredient Lime, together with salicylic acid, Love Nature Tea Tree & Lime Purifying Oil targets blemishes by helping to purify and soothe the affected area while working to tone and tighten pores.

Fresh on application, with a wonderfully light after-feel and an uplifting floral-citrus scent, the formulation is also paraben-free and dermatologically tested.

My thoughts :

This was a miss, not my favorite product. Didn’t work for me.More about why and how you can read here (Oriflame LOVE NATURE Purifying Face Oil with Organic Tea Tree & Lime- First Impression)

Purifying Toner with Organic Tea Tree & Lime

About the product : 

Featuring organic Tea Tree essential oil and super ingredient Lime, it’s designed to remove those last traces of make-up and impurities and leave skin perfectly cleansed, toned and purified. It’ll also work to minimise the appearance of pores and even contains salicylic acid to help control blemish-prone skin.

You’ll also be pleased to hear it’s dermatologically-tested and non-comedogenic. And – as a parting kiss from Mother Nature – it’ll leave your skin with a delicate floral citrus scent. That’s purifying bliss in a bottle!

My thoughts :

This is a hit and miss for me. I like it, but it does leave my skin sticky. Doesn’t break me out, the scent is light. One of the main ingredients is Alcohol, so if you are sensitive to it, this is not for you.

THE PRICE

I paid around 5 euros with a 30% discount. So it was pretty affordable.

SKIN AFTER USE

IT RUINED MY SKIN! I’m serious. My skin became,2 hours after using this one, super oily like you can FRY FOOD ON IT OILY. I thought it’s one of those products that made your skin worst before making it better(we all know “those” products), but no…My skin is still awful because of this product…and I’m still trying to fix the mess. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND if your skin is not sensitive or is super oily to being with.

PACKAGING

It’s the same plastic as the first one, I liked the pump it was pretty handy. You can see the product easily…but to be honest I would love to see it in clear plastic not blue.

TEXTURE AND QUALITY

It’s a thick gel-like formula, very gentle ..too gentle in my opinion because my face still felt dirty after washing it.

THE PRICE

The same as the first product, around 5 euros with the discount.

SKIN AFTER USE

It was one of the worst face washing gels I have ever used! And I have used a lot of those. It’s…simply awful, my face was oily, my acne got worst …It’s just a mess. Would not recommend it at all!

My Thoughts 

IMG_20200801_150707

I love products from this range, the Scrub/Mask, and the face wash is phenomenal so I was so excited when my friend Alina gave this one as an early Name day gift. I have tried this just two times now, so of course, my thoughts can change with time and use, but right now I have very mixed feelingsI tried to put on my pimples(like you are supposed to)  and guys…it made everything worse, my face HATED it, but putting one/two drops in my moisturizer before applying, my face liked it more. So will see how my face like it, after a month will do a deep review of this oil.

garnier cream packaging

It’s a very light but tacky jelly-like texture, it has a light scent(I don’t really like it). It doesn’t contain any oils ,and that’s amazing! I’m happy with the quality.

It’s around 4/6 euro in Latvia. So very affordable.

My thoughts

Quality

5/5 stars

1483933

I’m impressed! The Jade Roller is all made from “jade”(the roller part and the handle),I don’t know if that’s real Jade but feels really sturdy. It’s a pretty heavy product and that’s amazing. The “spiky” part is much more gentle on the skin than I anticipated and the “smooth” part is really nice on the skin. I like the “gold” details

jade roller

Does it work?

For me personally?No! But for my Mom?! She loved it!I tried it for a week ,every morning and I will be honest…it was painful. It felt like I was massaging my bones not skin. My Mom on the other hand loves it! She said it felt very relaxing and helped with under-eye bags. So it’s not for everyone.

Would I recommend?

It’s pretty cheap ,so why not ? Yes,it’s not for everyone ,but it’s still an interesting product to try.
