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

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.

My Thoughts 

Packaging

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

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. If that’s something you don’t like, better skip this one.

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.

Himalaya “Fresh Start Oil Clear Strawberry “Face Wash review

 

Hello, My Darlings! How are you all doing? Hope the summer is going good for you.

Here I will have a little rant, so if you are not interested totally go ahead and scroll down to the review! So the past week I put up a blog post called “May’s Favorites” all was good for a few days(people where liking and I did check it out few times and it was okay), but after that, I opened up to check it out and I see that it’s blank…..and there are just 2 photos no text or anything….and it was not posted ?!All the text just disappeared..I was so disappointed because writing something and putting your time in it and then it just randomly disappearing, without any logical explanation is hard. Have you ever had this kind of a problem? I have come to terms with it now of course and in the future will definitely make copies of any posts I will ever write, just sucks to lose perfectly good post that’s all. Okay, that’s the end of the rant . Thanks for reading and now let’s dive into the review!

Being very truthful packaging was the selling point for me . It’s so summery and cheerful, right?! So seeing that it was just 2 euros in my local grocery store I got it. It’s a plastic semi-transparent tube where you can see the product, and I appreciate it. The only downside the tube started leaking after opening.

Texture and Quality

4/5 stars 

 

4-stars

The beads are small and not a lot of them are in there, and I prefer it that way. It’s not harsh on the skin, doesn’t leaves your skin feeling dry after using. Has a nice light strawberry smell. I do use it for my acne on my back, and it works much better for the body in my opinion(that’s what I saw after 2 weeks of using)

Overall

                                                                            Pros

Cons

Microbeads are bad for the environment

“It just didn’t work” Beauty edition

download20190104114820

Hello, my Darlings! How are you all doing? How’s the weather? We had such snow storms for days now. It’s so beautiful outside, but at the same time, it’s cold like -15 C cold. Today I want to talk about beauty products that just didn’t work for me. Right now I just have 3 of those, I hate wasting products, so I try to repurpose them or give to my mom(She has dry skin, so everything that doesn’t work for me, usually works for her). Let’s dive into it.

My “didn’t work” pile
Himalaya Refreshing and Clarifying Toner

KODAK Digital Still Camera
About the product:

Himalaya Herbals Gentle Refreshing Toner is an alcohol-free toner which helps reduce oil secretion and keeps skin oil free. Himalaya Herbals Gentle Refreshing Toner removes impurities and makes the pores appear smaller, revitalizes and rejuvenates the skin. Makes the skin look healthy and radiant. It does not leave the skin dry and stretchy. It is enriched with all natural ingredients which control the secretion of oil in the skin making it look fresh and oil-free.

  • Alcohol-free product.
  • Reduces oil secretion.
  • Removes impurities and dirt.

Why it didn’t work:

My face feels sticky after using it. Simple as that. It does say there are no oils or alcohol, but my face feels dirty and I don’t like the smell of it. I’m reusing it like a makeup remover.

Day Tox Pell of Mask

KODAK Digital Still Camera
About the product:

Black is the new Must-have. The pitch-black active charcoal mask provides an intensive deep cleansing. It absorbs excess sebum and with regular use combats the formation of blackheads. The result is a more revitalized and radiant skin as well as a refined complexion.
Why it didn’t work:

It did absolutely nothing. Like I’m not even joking. My face feels and looks the same after use and it’s a pain to take it off. Wouldn’t recommend.

LASH SENSATIONAL


About the product:

Did you know your lashes grow more than just one layer? This mascara unfolds layer upon layer of lashes for a new full-fan effect.
Why it didn’t work:

It made my eyelashes look like spider legs. It clumped up and you can’t put more than 2 layers on. I really think it’s not as much of mascaras fault, but more the way my eyelashes are (thin and short). I will try it again in the future, but right now I’m very disappointed.

“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.
