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.

Oriflame “Love Nature” for oily/combination skin – First impressions

IMG_20200202_154641

About the “Love Nature’ lineLove Nature celebrates ingredients from nature that smell and feel fantastic. Every pleasurable product has been created to benefit your body and respect the planet.

Purifying Gel wash with Organic Tea Tree & Lime

(125 ml)

About the product: GO FROM OILY TO ON POINT!

Great-looking skin starts with good defense and oily skin doesn’t stand a chance against the natural purifying goodness of Love Nature Tea Tree & Lime Purifying Gel Wash.

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!

First impressions – I have already tried this one and can say, this is a really good face wash! It gives you a slight cooling feeling after washing it off, helps with mattifying your face for hours(I was shocked about it), the only thing I don’t like is how much you need. This is not a product where “a little goes a long way”, you need a decent amount to really wash your face. For now, I’m very happy with this product.

 

Purifying 2-in-1 Mask & Scrub with Organic Tea Tree & Lime(75 ml)

About the product: It’s no secret, oily skin loves a good, deep cleansing. And with Love Nature Tea Tree & Lime Purifying 2in1 Mask & Scrub you’ll never disappoint!

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.

So, whether you only have time for a quick scrub, or can afford a little more “me time” for a mask, you can look forward to skin that is smooth, mattified and radiant.

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!

First impressions – Another one I already tried(but as a Scrub, not a Mask). It’s a very “light” scrub, not harsh at all. Has a pleasant tea tree scent.

 

Cucumber Refreshing Gel Mask for Combination skin(10 ml)

IMG_20200202_154815

About the product:  Love Nature Gel Mask Cucumber is a refreshing, cooling gel mask sachet with natural cucumber to revitalize the skin. Cucumber extract is rich in vitamin C and helps to hydrate and invigorate. Suitable for combination skin. Dermatologically tested.

First impressions – I haven’t tried this one, but can’t wait to do so. I do love those “one use” face masks from Oriflame.

 

Clarifying Clay Mask with Organic Rice & White Tea for All Skin Types(10 ml)

IMG_20200202_154750

PERFECT FOR ON-THE-GO!

About the product: Single-use clay mask in a fun format with super ingredient white tea, and rice.

  • Helps to purify the skin with White Tea
  • Paraben-free and biodegradable formula

First impressions – Another I haven’t tried yet, but can already say that I hate the packaging. I never use up those “single-use” masks, and this packaging ..well we don’t get along, let’s leave it like that!

 

Cucumber facial kit

IMG_20200202_154725

Cucumber Face Gel(30 ml)

Light-textured facial gel with natural Cucumber extract. It helps to moisturize, soften and provide cooling, soothing relief for the skin. Promotes hydrated and refreshed skin feeling. Dermatologically tested. All skin types.

Cucumber Face mask(30 ml)

Face mask with hydrating glycerine that helps cleanse the skin, absorbs excess fat and rejuvenates the lifeless skin. The formulation also contains a white clay that cleanses the skin and removes impurities and the natural extract of cucumber that refreshes the skin. Dermatologically tested. For all skin types.

Cucumber Scrub(30 ml)

Love Nature Face Scrub Cucumber is a hydrating gel-based scrub, composed with cucumber extract. Purifies, helps the pores to unclog and contains exfoliating particles to gently remove dead skin cells. Gives the skin a smooth, soft, fresh and radiant feeling. Apply by massaging on the moist skin – avoid the eye area – and rinse well. Dermatologically tested. All skin types.

First impressions –  This looks like something perfect for traveling, small 30 ml bottles with everything you need for your skin! I’m leaving it unopen until summer or at least my next trip abroad.

I got it in a box sealed(as a gift from my dear friend Alina), we opened this together and everything was fine in the box. Nothing came broken and that’s amazing! In the set Alina got for me, you get Shampoo and Conditioner 236.6 ml(8 Fl Oz) each, two pumps, stickers to customize your bottles(I have already done that, you can clearly see it in the pictures) ,a hand mirror(as an extra gift),a pamphlet with the information(like the formula and ingredients) and a little card with good wishes from Alina. Visually I liked how it looks,the quality of the packaging is pretty good.

I have not yet washed my hair with this set but from ingredients and the consistency of products, I like it(for now, of course, let’s see how I like it after a month of using). I really like the color, it’s my favorite shade of pink(bubble pink) and the scent is very vanilla.

Overall

From my first impressions, I’m very impressed! I can’t wait to use it and see if it’s worth the money and hype. Because let’s be real, the hype is real, Let’s see how I feel about it after a month.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Souffle de Velvet Liquid Lipstick-First Impressions

Hello, My Darlings!I’m back with a first impression post . I got those two Lipsticks on a very good discount and I have never tried any Bourjois Products, so I thought why not to get it??? Now let’s dive into my thoughts!

About the product :Swipe on Rouge Edition Souffle de Velvet: a veil of fresh-toned matte colour that holds on tight for up to 10 hours. The extremely smooth; comfortable formula hydrates whilst endowing your pout with a beguiling “”tinted lips”” effect. When you want the semi-transparency of a balm with the long-lasting wear of a matte finish; Rouge Edition Souffle de Velvet from Bourjois gives you both; in a light-as-air; velvety wash of colour. The cushioned flocked applicator delivers just the right dose of silky-textured Rouge Edition Souffle de Velvet.

748905951.g_0-w_g (1)Key features and benefits:
– Silky smooth texture that glides on effortlessly
– Long-wearing formula delivers non-drying, and matte colour
– Cushioned tip applicator wand allows mistake-free application
– Lips are left super soft, sumptuous and hydrated for up to 10 hours
– Smudge it with fingers to get the bitten lips effect

You can find this lipstick for a good price here

 

My Thoughts:

I got two of those , in the color 02 Coquelic’Oh! and 06 Cherry Leaders. In pictures, they look very similar, but in life 02 Coquelic’Oh! is more an orangy red than 06 Cherry Leaders. The packaging is from a sturdy, high-quality matt plastic. I really like how it looks and feels in my arm.

When I opened it up,I found the smell interesting…the scent is a very light fruity smell. The tip of the applicator is stiff, perfect for this kind of product. The product is like this smooth jelly(yes, I know it sounds weird, but it’s seriously how it feels ), basically the idea of this lipstick is a hydrating lip tint and you can clearly see it in the formula.

 

It’s sad to say but it’s patchy…like a lot(I have tried both of those for a full 8h, but just once each),  and because of the formula it doesn’t stay put on the lips but it moves .I literally applied it for 5 minutes straight to get it even and it’s such a shame. I do think this formula would be perfect for a tinted blush, I did try it that way and it worked much better than as a lipstick . As for the “Becoming matt” thing, I would say it does dry down a bit, but it’s definitely not a matt finish at all.

IMG_20190325_135113

Overall

Would I recommend? Just on a huge discount yes, but from my first experience? No,I don’t feel like it works and that’s a shame.

 Quality is great, the actual product has a light fruit scent. The color is vibrant, and you can build it up easily. It’s not kissing prof sadly, but it is long lasting.

 

Overall

I like it.

“MADARA”CHARCOAL DETOX SOAP- First Impressions

giphy (50)Hello, my darlings! How are you all doing? I’m back with First Impressions of charcoal soap by a Latvian brand “MADARA”. My darling mom got a big order from madaracosmetics , they had a 40% sale, and for me, she got this soap(they are geared towards dry or older skin, but they do have a range for oily skin). So here are my first impressions!

Processed with VSCO with  preset
All the goodies we got!

 

About the product :

Processed with VSCO with  presetIntensely purifying and nourishing detox soap with activated charcoal and natural orris-pine fragrance.

The amazing purifying power of charcoal draws out toxins and impurities to deeply, yet gently, cleanse your skin. Mysterious notes of orris and pine feel like a revitalizing swim in an unspoilt forest lake.

Based on natural coconut oil. Sulfate, palm, and microplastic free. 100% biodegradable.

MY THOUGHTS:

Processed with VSCO with  presetFirst, I love the packaging. It’s simple and classic. I love the font and it’s made from recycled materials. When I opened it up,  there was this amazing smell. I love how it smells!I did try it on my face and body (especially my back where I have oily and acne prone skin) and I feel like it’s better for your body than face. It does do the job ,as in cleans your skin and get’s rid of the oily feeling. But I wasn’t blown away (as a face product for me, if you have oily skin with dry patches you will love it), but…I loved it as a body one.My first impressions are pretty good  !I did like it.

First Impression: essence #insta perfect liquid makeup

Recently my Instagram is just full of new essence products(all the bloggers I follow are just obsessed with it) and one of those products was the #insta perfect liquid foundation. I got really curious, because I am loving the essence concealers right now and why not to try a new foundation? So I got and bought it . Here are my honest thoughts !

About the product : 

0476546-1The make-up in a practical drop-packaging ensures a matte and flawless complexion. The liquid texture is waterproof and the coverage is buildable drop-by-drop. Nine different shades can be mixed and matched to create the perfect colour for all skin types and are sure to make all

  • Waterproof make-up
  • Nine different shades to combine
  • Buildable for stronger coverage

 

My thoughts :

The Formula and Shade: 4,5/5

 

The shade is perfect for me( I have the shade 10 #cool porcelain ). I’m so happy to have found a foundation that matches my skin perfectly! The coverage is light to medium, but it’s very buildable so you could go to high coverage. I did try 2 different powders (on two different days logically) and I found that it does best with essence powder.

The packaging: 4/5 stars

Processed with VSCO with  preset

The first thing you see how tiny the bottle is, but it’s 30 ml/1.01 fl.oz(the packaging says) the same as an average foundation bottle. I like how easy to take it with you anywhere you go, but I don’t think it will last for long.

Overall: 4/5 stars

1280px-4_stars.svg

Processed with VSCO with  preset

Pros :

  • Lightweight
  • Perfect Colour match (for me)
  • Good Price
  • Compact packaging
  • Buildable coverage

Cons:

  • Works best with other essence products
  • Not wide color range

 I like it! It’s a pretty good foundation for the price. I hope essence will expend the color range soon .

Tell me in the comments, Have you tried this foundation ?

Sorry about the crappy swatch picture

I still haven’t opened powder and eyeshadows, so I can’t say anything bad or good about them. About products that I have tried, I can say positive things, for now, my favorite of all is the mascara, it gives your lashes very natural look and is not clumpy. I think will do a look with all of the products in the future.
