It’s a pretty good set!I love how it looks and smells. The price was great (In the past I got just the shower foam for 10 euros)so 19.95(now they have 20% off, so it’s even cheaper)is perfect for 4 items. Great set for your Home Spa days!Would definitely recommend.

Tell me in the comments, How you tried anything from Douglas?Did you like it?

“I got new STUFF” haul

hotHello, my darlings! How are you? Finally, here in Latvia, we got a real winter (with snow, ice and -20 C*).That means shopping for warm clothes and skin care stuff(because my skin is acting up in this weather).And today I want to talk about the skincare/makeup I got recently. Almost all of them I have tried those few days,so Let’s start!

 

Makeup

Processed with VSCO with  preset

Maybelline Dream Matte bb with salicylic acid

in the colour 03 light

It was my first time seeing it in a new design. I like it more than the original one FOR SURE. The colour match is okay for me, not perfect, but at the same time, not the worst( I think it’s the same exact colour as the light/medium was).Overall I’m happy with this product.

essence Camouflage full coverage concealer

When I was browsing our local drugstore essence stand I found this pretty cool concealer that I have never seen before. The price was great (a little under 3 euro) so I got it in the colour 10 nude (sadly the 05 was sold out).It has a pinkish undertone, covers undereye circles and small imperfections pretty well. Stays on all day. The colour match is much better than most “light” drugstore concealers(on my skin). I really like it.

 

SkinCare

 

Processed with VSCO with  preset

Beauty Formulas charcoal clay mask

I haven’t tried anything from this brand, so this is my first product from them.This mask smells really good. I like the consistency and I feel like it does help with the oiliness and imperfections of my skin. It was cheap(under 2 euros with my discount card).Really happy and glad that I got it!

 

Processed with VSCO with  preset

Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Mask

This is my 3rd time repurchase it , so you can tell that I like it a lot. It’s a great mask for oily skin, would definitely recommend.

 

Body/Haircare

Processed with VSCO with  preset

Green Pharmacy Shower Gel with strawberries and mint

You know the smell of wild strawberries that you can find just in the forest?Well, this smells exactly like that and I love it!

Processed with VSCO with  preset

 Syoss Full Hair 5 Extra Strong Hold Fullness & Volume Hair Mousse 250ml

With my new haircut, a hair mousse is a must! Right now I have love/hate relationship with this one, but I just started using it so maybe in the future I will change my mind.

 

Tell me in the comments, What is the last makeup/skincare thing you got?Did you like it?

June Empties!

So let’s go thru my beauty trash!I did a little cleaning of my beauty corner and bathroom and those are the products I have used up.

Disclaimer: Why am I not using my own photos?Because if I use a product every day I'm not gentle with it, so when the time comes to throw it out I'm basically throwing pieces of the product.For the sake of understanding what the product did look before I got my hands on, I'm using photos of the official ad's

scrub

NSPA Exotically Creamy Coconut Scrub

The manufacturer promises: Use it daily to leave skin smooth and with a delicate fragrance. Created in the UK by spa experts, it is paraben-free and has not been tested on animals. Packed with natural vitamins, real fruit goodness, and passion fruit seeds, it will lift away dull skin and invigorate your senses. The tropical aroma of creamy coconut will liven your senses. This natural shower scrub is 7.6 fl oz in size.

My Thoughts: I’m so sad this scrub ended, it was so good.My skin after it felt so smooth and clean.Definitely, will repurchase!

Collection-2000-Pressed-Powder-17g-Ivory-18-236993

Collection Pressed Powder 17g Ivory 18

The manufacturer promises:Mattifies skin & controls shine for up to 10 hours.Contains ‘skin correct’ complex to minimize breakouts.Soft, blendable texture evens out skin tone.Light to medium coverage.

My Thoughts: This is one of my holy grail products!It’s soooooo goood !My skin looks and feels great after using this powder.The only downside is you can’t really get it anywhere else but England and it’s annoying as hell.So always when I hit the pan, I have a little panic attack inside,because I never know when can I get it again (God bless friends who have relatives in England and can bring me twice a year this powder!)

skarb dlja nog

Zelenaya Apteka Scrub for feet

My Thoughts: This one is Ukrainian all natural brand, so I was excited to try this scrub.I can say it wasn’t as good as I expected.The ”beads” in it where too big and not as much to really do something, but for the price (Just 2 euros) it can be a good one for the winter.

essence all about matt! fixing compact powder-1All about matt! fixing compact powder

The manufacturer promises: if you prefer pressed powder, this fine, compact powder is for you! it can be applied above foundation to mattify your skin and set your make-up. for a matt, natural and smooth complexion. it’s perfect when you’re out and about with your girls!

My Thoughts: When I can’t get my hands on the collection powder then I go to my local drugstore and by this one.I really like it, it does the job, I don’t get oily and my makeup stays on all day.What else can you ask for?
