Skincare mini haul

giphy (1)Hello beautiful people!I hope you all had a great week.Who else is getting into Christmas mood(or is that just me)? Last week for me was …”fun” one, My old tablet died and I wasn’t able to save any photos or notes from there..that’s why my blog was a little quieter then I would like. But there is no bad without good(old Slavic saying) and my mom(bless her soul) got me a new phone as an early Christmas gift.That’s why I’m back today with a mini skincare haul from my local drugstore that carries brands from Eastern Europe and the “Dzintars” Latvian cosmetic store. Hope you enjoy!

It helps to improve complexion and reduce pore size, making your skin noticeably smoother. The mask regulates sebum secretion and has a matte effect on oily and combination skin.

My thoughts: I have an eye cream from this line, so I did buy this just because I like the cream so much. I like the texture, can’t really say about the effect of using it, you need time for that to show.Overall I like it, and the price is very nice.

Lip balm with Australian tea-tree oil and UV-filter

Thin lips skin has no fat cells or protective corneous layer. Our lips are much too tender and unprotected, being totally helpless against the external environment’s destructive effect. Thus, they are to be cared and properly protected by means of carefully chosen cosmetic products. Antioxidant lip balm has an intensive protecting effect. When applied, creates a thin pellicle, protecting lips skin from dehydration and the negative influence of external environment and UV-rays.

Protects lips skin from early aging, the negative influence of external environment and UV-rays.

Be trendy Glitter powder eyeshadow

Due to its powdery mother-of-pearl pigments, the eyeshadow makes your face look more expressive, radiant and fresh.

Apply glitter powder eyeshadow with a brush, sponge-tipped applicator, or fingertips. The eyeshadow can be applied on top of your foundation cream, pre-base, or special eyeshadow
primer. To achieve a brighter and more enduring make-up glitter powder eyeshadow can be applied over cream eyeshadow

My Thoughts: If you want over the top glow of Gods highlight, use this!I have it in Tone “Peach” .So it gives a little bronze glow.Love it!

 

madara logo

ABOUT COMPANY: We believe that the best skincare is the kind of care that goes deeper than skin. Not just to make us look better, but make us feel and act better. It is care for our well being and self-esteem, care about the choices we make, the values we respect, and care for the environmental footprint we leave.

For the Nordic people often introverted and solitary beings what is on the inside has always been more important than how we look. That`s why we insist on truly effective ingredients, honest claims, environmentally friendly packaging, care,passion and respect. Because a radiant heart leads to radiant skin.
