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.

Official Focallure Aliexpress store: You can find this powder here 

My thoughts :

PACKAGING

It came in a brand box with a seal, so you know it’s new and not opened before. It had the sticker with the scratch code of authenticity (just like mascara had). The “jar” is made from very sturdy plastic and the puff is of great quality. So I’m happy with the packaging.

 

QUALITY AND HOW IT APPLIES

I got the color 01 Ivory(Fa-15) and it’s perfect for my pale nordic skin. It’s a very light powder that really is perfect for oily skin, it keeps you matt ALL DAY. But…if you have some dry spots, it’s not for you it will not look good(trust me). I apply it with my powder brush from Aliexpress, but you can totally use the puff (I sometimes do it, when I’m at my boyfriend’s house and have forgotten the brush).

Overall I love this powder and have tried the 02 Natural color some years ago, at that time it was too dark for me, but I loved the texture…and I can say it’s still the same great quality. Can’t wait to try more stuff from this brand(I’m slowly getting obsessed)

PROS  
  • long-lasting
  • Perfect for oily skin
  • Affordable
  • Great gift idea
  • Travel friendly
CONS
  • it can “wash” you out
  • Not good for dry skin

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.

1.Hand cream “Barkhatnyye ruchki”

I got this one as a little surprise from my dear friend Alina(she always gets me little gifts, how did I deserve such an amazing friend I will never know). I have already used this cream for 2 weeks now and can say it’s pretty decent. Doesn’t make my skin feel all greasy, and that’s a BIG plus. Overall would recommend

2. Maybelline Fit Me matt + porelles foundation for Normal to Oily skin(110 Porcelain)

I have tried this one before,and if I remember correctly I liked it. Right now, by swatching it I can say it’s not as full coverage as I like. It’s more a natural/medium coverage foundation so I don’t know how I feel about it. The color was a pretty okay color match, would love it to be a little bit lighter but we can’t have it all(yes yes I know, I’m white as a Ghost).

About the product : Fit Me® Matte + Poreless Foundation face makeup. This lightweight foundation mattifies and refines pores and leaves a natural, seamless finish.

3.The RIVAL loves me Primer Matt & Poreless

About the product : The RIVAL loves me Primer Matt & Poreless has a matt effect, has a pore-refining effect, and prepares the skin optimally for the subsequent make-up. Skin compatibility dermatologically confirmed. Use: Apply to the face every morning after cleansing and massage in gently. Now the skin is ready for the makeup!

4. essence eyebrow designer(02 brown)

It’s like…my 5th pencil already!I WOULD DIE FOR THIS PENCIL!!!!It’s amazing,truly. One of my holy grail products I love and will always buy. It stays on the whole day,is not waxy and it’s easily to draw with . And of course it’s affordable,and that’s always a plus.

About the product :who says you can’t have it all? tame, define & shape your brows with an eyebrow pencil and brush all in one! a smooth pencil to define, outline, and fill in brows. blend seamlessly and comb with attached brush.

5.Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder

Another one of my all time favorite products! Yes,it can look ashy ..but my skin is like…white so It’s perfect for me.

About the product: 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!

6.essence smoothie gloss(01 crazy mango)

I got it as a gift for purchase,and I’m obsessed! It’s not sticky ,has a nice light scent(and it’s yummy,I tried it…You are welcome!)

About the product : as trendy as fruit smoothies: the lipglosses in the five fragrances mango, peach, strawberry, raspberry and blackberry – all with medium coverage. the cute lipglosses give you the feeling that you have the aromatic fruits right on your lips! each gloss has the colour of the fruit on its packaging

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.

It’s a very simple glass jar(we love that it’s not plastic), nothing special about it. But it’s a heavy jar, so not really travel friendly. Easy to open and close, the lid is plastic.

garnier cream packaging
TEXTURE AND QUALITY

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.

garnier texture
THE PRICE

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

SKIN AFTER USE

Is this real?! A product for normal/Combination skin worked for me?! And guys, my skin got better! Almost no new acne, I’m amazed. Overall I’m very happy with this product.


OVERALL

L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Purity Face Mask – review

If you are new here Hello My name is Anna and I have Oily and Acne-prone skin, so all my opinions are based on my skin and it’s needs.

About the product :

loreal for blogFor the first time, the L’Oréal Paris laboratories have selected three pure clays and combined them with eucalyptus extract, known for its purifying properties. The creamy texture works deep into the pores, leaving skin purified and matte-looking, without drying it out.

Benefits

A powerful blend of 3 pure clays

Kaolin – A highly effective natural clay, known to absorb impurities and excess sebum.
Montmorillonite – Rich in minerals, a clay recognized for helping to eliminate imperfections.
Ghassoul – A pure clay highly concentrated in minerals renowned to help clarify the complexion.

Ingredients: Aqua / Water, Kaolin, Montmorillonite, Silica, Lecithin,
 Polysorbate 20, Butylene Glycol, Propylene Glycol,
 Oryza Sativa Starch / Rice Starch, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Extract, 
Glycerin, Moroccan Lava Clay, Caprylyl Glycol, Citric Acid, Xanthan Gum, 
Methylparaben, Sodium Benzoate, Sodium Methylparaben, Phenoxyethanol, 
Chlorphenesin, CI 61570 / Green 5, CI 77492 / Iron Oxides, Linalool,
 Geraniol, Coumarin, Citronellol, Parfum / Fragrance

 

MY THOUGHTS

To be totally honest I didn’t buy it myself but got it from one of my friends who got it but didn’t like it after the first use(and in Latvia, you can’t exchange cosmetic products or get money back). So because she knows I have an oily skin type and like clay masks, she gave it to me. I have already tried some masks from this range(you can read about it here).

loreal for blog 1-horz

So about the actual mask. It’s very drying like overly drying and tightening, I actually love those kinds of masks because of my oily skin…but even for me at this time of the year when my skin is a little bit dryer this was too much. If you have dry patches or have a dry skin type this is definitely not for you. This mask did help with acne, my face got more cleaner and it was longer matt, but it’s more like once a week face mask not every other day one! But the main thing I didn’t like is, there isn’t a lot of product in it. Like the packaging is pretty heavy, the product in it…there isn’t much of it inside. And it does dry out pretty quickly after opening the jar, so keep that in mind if you get it.

OVERALL

I would recommend for anyone who has oily skin and acne-prone skin.

4 stars

20200309_132420_268Pros

  • glass jar(we are here for the packaging)
  • helps with imperfections
  • My oily skin liked it

Cons  

  • not cheap
  • not travel-friendly
  • not an everyday type of mask

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.

Himalaya “Gentle Refreshing Face Wash” – review

About the product :

IMG_20200125_132638Soap-free daily use face wash gel that gently cleanses your face and removes excess oil without over-drying. Enriched with Citron, a natural astringent and cooling agent that tones your skin, and Honey that deep cleanses and nourishes, it leaves your skin feeling softer, healthier and refreshed.

for Combination to Oily skin

Not tested on Animals

Ingredients: Aqua, Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate, Citrus Medica Limonum Fruit Extract, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate and Disodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Glycerin, Honey, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Fragrance, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Hydroxide, Hydrogenated Jojoba Oil, Citric Acid, Sodium Metabisulfite, Methylchloroisothiazolinone & Methylisothiazolinone, Disodium EDTA.

 

I used it for 2 months (at the beginning of December until the end of January)

My Thoughts 

Packaging

The packaging is pretty average, nothing new or innovating. Made from sturdy plastic, easy to open. Easy on the eye.

IMG_20200125_132759

Quality and Scent

The quality of the actual product is good, not the best I have ever used, but still decent. This face wash has a “scrub” effect (It has those small “balls” inside), but to be honest, I don’t like that….it would be much better without them. It has a scent, not overbearing but still.

My skin after using 

It was okay. My skin didn’t get worst, but it didn’t get better. A pretty good face wash for someone who has dry patches or is more on the “normal” face type but “oily in the T zone”. Basically what I’m trying to say is It didn’t help my overly oily and acne-prone skin, I feel like the Jojoba oil in the ingredient list could be my answer why.
