I’ve had some real sh*t going on in my personal life for last year. 2017 was one of the worst, but at the same time it was one of the best years I’ve ever lived through.
Springtime brought me a divorce. Summer and early autumn was the worst ever. First I was working in two places and then I lost someone very special to me. I’ve been tired and didn’t feel like doing anything extra on my freetime.
But none of those things have nothing to do with cosmetics, so I’ll leave the rest out of my blog, just wanted to shed some light at the reasons why I haven’t been posting anything in a year.
I have been trying out new products, found some new favorites and I finally have my own cosmetic-corner in our bedroom which I love! So now I feel like I have all this new, refreshed energy to start posting.
I recently made two orders to cocopanda.fi and today I received the later one. I’m so excited for these products, that I finally got the urge to make a post!
You know that feeling, when your makeup remover needs to be gentle so it doesn’t irritate and dry your skin, but strong enough to get rid of all your mascara and eyeliner. Yeah, I know, black undereyes, even after using a toner. I usually wash my face twice, with a makeup remover and one meant for sensitive skin, and still I need to wash my eyes with soap or something. Most of the time I still look like a junkie in the morning, because I have some black under my eyes. I was so excited for this product that this is one of the two main reasons I put my order in.
Balms Away is a soft, vaseline-like, white to transparent substance, that almost melts on your fingers.
Take a small amount of product, spread it over a closed eyelid and brows. Rub it gently so it starts to remove the makeup and wipe with a cloth or a cotton pad etc.
I had some mascara and liner on from night before (hem, a little red wine and I was too tired to was my face) and Anastasia Dip brow.
I used a cotton pad to wipe and finished with Lumene Hellä soothing face tonic.
Couldn’t believe my eyes, no leftovers, no black marks under eyes, and best of all, no loose lashes or tingling eye area.
All this with BA and ONE SINGLE COTTON PAD!
Balms Away is extremely gentle, doesn’t leave your face greasy or tacky, pulls off makeup amazingly well and wipes off easily removing all makeup with it. I’m sold. 5/5!
I’ve wanted to try face oils for a long time now, because my skin is sensitive, dry and easily irritated. L’oreal I picked out just because of the reviews.
Nutri Gold is said to be intensively nutritious, it brightens your skin and makes your skin velvety soft. NG contains apricot seed- and jojoba oils, and essential oils from rose, orange and lavender.
Warm 2-3 oil drops between your hands and dab it on your face. You can add more oil if you have dryer patches on your face.
I did as suggested and on top I used Madara Cosmetics Ultra Rich Balm DD nettle. Scent is a bit strong, but fades quickly and isn’t overwhelming to me. First it feels that 3 drops is not nearly enough, but after I started dabbing it all over my face, it was enough. Added one extra drop on my forehead, but could’ve lived without.
My face haven’t been this soft in ages! And no redness of any kind, usually my face slightly reacts to new products with redness.
I’m going to continue using both of these products these and if let you know if anything radical happens, one way or another.
Have you tried either of these?
All links and info are attached just to help you find some great stuff, I have bought all the products with my own money and my opinion is honest. C’mon, I have no sponsors yet!
