[Empties] #04


Hello lovelies,

I hope you’re all doing fine. I finally moved - yay, no more posts that start with “I’m currently stuck between boxes” XD On the downside my body didn’t handle the stress very well and I didn’t only catch a cold I also have to fight with pimples and herpes right now.
 
 

Despite all this I wanted to write a post about my empties this month. As always a lot of products collected in my little paper bag…




; Balea Bodybalsam Sensitive (German drugstore brand) – one of my all-time favorite body lotions. As a child I had mild neurodermatitis so I still have to be careful about what I put on my skin. However I also can’t stand textures that are too rich so this was perfect. Lightweight, so it absorbed quickly but still rich enough for my skin. I currently try to use up another body lotion but after that I will definitely repurchase this product.

; Balea Professional Tiefenreinigung Shampoo (German drugstore brand) – A deep cleansing shampoo. It was too strong to use it on my hair every wash but it was very good to clean my make-up brushes. For that purpose I will buy it again.

; Pantene Pro-v Repair&Care Conditioner – I really love this conditioner. I have thick, dry and bleached hair so I need a rich conditioner. I already repurchased it.

; Bodysol Buttermilk & Lemon Shower gel – My mom got me this. It was all right and smelled nice but I have no idea where she got this and it wasn’t so good that I can’t live without it so not buying it again.




; Bifesta Eye make-up remover – I really liked this product. I already wrote a review here and the biggest plus was that it removed my Japanese mascara pretty well (they can be a bitch to get off your lashes…). I’m currently using one from a German drugstore that also seems to work really well. If it turns out the German one is as good as the Bifesta one I’ll continue using the German one until I get back to Japan.

; Etude House Wonder Pore Freshener - as I wrote in my review here I was quite disappointed with this product since I had high expectations. I’m happy it’s finally empty and I’m currently using a toner from Mizon

; Balea Eyecream (German drugstore brand) – was okay but now I’m trying one with anti-aging properties.

; It’s Skin Power 10 VC Effector – Since this was only a sample I can’t say a lot. I used two other versions in Japan because they were on sale but I can’t remember particularly liking them.

; Balea Teatree food cream (German drugstore brand) – Was okay but I didn’t like the smell so I bought another one.



; Etude House, I need you mask sheets in Mango, Acai Berry, Bamboo and Tea Tree – I liked them more than the sheet masks in their A-Z series because they fit my face a lot better. I ordered some masks sheets from tonymoly that I wanna try but I’ll probably gonna repurchase these ones here sometime in the future.

; Tonymoly Panda’s Dream Eye Patch – These were so much fun to use. Made me really look like a panda (I posted a picture on my Instagram) and felt really good. Probably gonna buy these again.



; My Burberry sample – smelled nice but not so good that I would buy the full-size

; green glitter eyeliner – I’ve had this for years but never used it and it’s slowly getting bad so I threw it out.

; Catrice Ultimate Lash Multimizer Volume Mascara (German drugstore brand) – this didn’t work on my lashes at all and clumped so it’s going in the trash can.

; p2 absolute color lipsticks in 121 milky chai and 101 vibrant Barolo (German drugstore brand) – another two products to throw away… they went bad, smelled funny and the texture was strange

; canmake base coat – That was a nice base coat but it got thick towards the end and I couldn’t reach the polish with the brush anymore so bye bye. Probably gonna buy it again when I’m in Japan.

; p2 your wild side black matte nail polish (German drugstore brand) – it’s quite old so it doesn’t have a matte finish anymore. That kinda defeats the purpose of a matte nail polish plus I have a matte top coat so this is going as well.

; p2 pure color lipstick in 110 Place de la Concorde (German drugstore brand) – another lipstick gone bad. Strange smell and strange texture. Also the color made me look really pale and sick.

; lipstick I got as a present a long time ago. The color doesn’t fit me at all and I have so many lipsticks so I decided to get rid of this one.

; Sundance chapstick (German drugstore brand) – this is very old and started smelling funny so gone with it.

; essence XXXL lipgloss in 03 very berry (I think) (German drugstore brand) – The texture of this is awful …it feels so sticky and the color showed up weird on my lips so this is gone as well.

 

There were quite a lot of products that I decided to throw out this time but I took moving flats as an opportunity to get rid of stuff I don’t need or use anymore.

Once I get settled here I hope I have more time to blog again…I miss posting regularly on here ^^

[Review] Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in 02 Framboujoise

Hello pretties,

I hope you're all doing fine. Due to moving in one week I'm currently sitting on the floor while writing this entry since my desk and chair is already gone "^^

I wanted to review one of the products I bought in Paris after reading a few good reviews online.




What they say:

Exclusive formula: Matte finish and incredibly light.
Rouge Edition Velvet by Bourjois is the new era of lipsticks. An amazing, irresistible formula.
Its soft, melting texture glides on to the lips and turns into a matt, velvety and incredibly light colour. Lips are left smooth and soft as velvet.
Enriched with evanescent oils, it’s incredibly sensuous formula provides a soft, second-skin feel, without drying or fading lips.

[Review] Cure Natural Aqua Gel

Hello dears,

I hope you're all doing fine. Germany became really cold lately and I'm busy shivering every day -.-

When it's getting cold it's also time to put more effort into skin care. And what's part of good skin care? Right, exfoliating.
Today I will share a review about a really cool exfoliating product from Japan.






I'm talking about the Cure Natural Aqua Gel.

What they say:
‘Natural Aqua Gel Cure’ gently removes the dried surface of rough skin.
It is a very simple product as approximately 91% of ‘Natural Aqua Gel Cure’ is water.
It is fragrance free. Has no artificial colors or preservatives.
‘Natural Aqua Gel Cure’ is very gentle on the skin. In fact,
it uses a protective solution that is applied by ophthalmologists for eye surgery.
