Inspiring person

Ending on a bit of sad note, but for me the most inspiring person of 2017 was a little boy who’s name was Tijn. This boy put others before himself eventhough he was terminally ill.

Tijn raised over 2.5 million euros through painting nails for a fundraiser from Serious Request. And later another 1.2 million euros with his own line of nail polishes.

This boy just showed me how we all should be a little bit less selfish in life and start carring about others regardless of your own situation

I really felt so sad when I heard he passed away last July because of his illness. As a Dutch singer song writer wrote” you are a hero!”.

Writing about my most inspiring person for 2017 concludes my 2017 favorites!

Curious about my list of unfavorites for 2017? Please let me know! As I am intending to write a post about this one

Thumbs Review:Garnier Skin Active Hydra Bomb Masque

Thumbs Review:Garnier Skin Active Hydra Bomb Masque

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

As you know I love me a Face mask and I am also a big fan of Garnier.  Therefor fate and my purse decided to get the Garnier Skin Active Hydra Bomb Masque.

The Mask claims to hydrate, reduce wrinkles and make your face look brighter and that in only 15 minutes!  Hydration and reducing wrinkles are very important to me, so if this works great!

20170807_215133

The steps are simple, apply the mask to a clean face, afterwards remove the blue film. Leave the mask on for 15 minutes and massage the residue of the serum in your face. You can also remove the excess serum of with a cotton bud. But hey I like to use each mililiter of the serum.

Thumbs up for 

Great Smell! Fresh and Fruity

Price +-   € 3,00  A great price I would say

Skin feels hydrated after use

Thumbs down for

Does not fit the head very well

Slight burning sensation when wearing mask.

Feels slightly tacky after use

Do not notice reduce in wrinkles after immediate use

Overall thoughts

First thing I notice when I apply the mask is that I get hit with this really great smell . Really fresh maybe even a bit fruity.  But then problem one arises! Either I have a really big head or this mask is real tiny. It does not frame the face wvery well. Also I must say I feel a bit claustrophobic in this mask. Secondly this mask should be suitable for sensitive skin however in the beginning I notice a slight burn. Not massive but still there.

Eventhough there are some minuses to this mask, I would not fully mock it. The mask hydrates and the price is affordable compared to some other masks I tried in the past. Also it might be that the ingredients in this mask need some time to work. Maybe I will the notice the result next day. I would use it again.

To the sheet mask lovers out there! Have you tried this mask? What were your thoughts on it? If you want, please feel free to leave a comment.! If you like posts like these please feel free to roam through my little space on the internet and like and subscribe as you wish.

Until next post friends.

Thumbs September Empties!

Thumbs September Empties!

Hello dear readers and loyal subbies,

It is October and this month, I have some empties from September! Somehow I managed to collect some empties. Still I am very surprised that it is that little as it is. In my weird little mind, I used a lot! So lets get through my bag off empties!

Skincare

  • Clinique Repair wear laser focus eye cream. This is a wrinkle correcting eye cream. I am very sad this is, in my empties. I thought it really worked and now I am like, hey am I getting more wrinkles? Which would be such a big no no! Must repurchase!
  •  Etos Night Cream . This cream I used to really like. Now I am sort  of re-querying it. I think because I am getting older my skin demand has changed. So it is not doing miracles for my skin. Which is ok, but it means I need to find something else.

Body

  • Vaseline Moisture locking cream. Errg I love Vaseline, but this one did not really work for me. It was hard rubbing it in the skin, and I did not like poking my fingers in the cream. Which is strange because I love my Body Shop Butter, and I do poke my fingers in there.
  • Soap and Glory  Clean on me shower gel. A must to repurchase. This smells so clean and it has a built in body lotion. Which is nice . Again another must repurchase.
  • Etos Tooth paste cool mint.

dsc02279

Make-up

  •  Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara . Still my fave mascara however going back to Maybeline the Rocket as I do have some good memory of this mascara
  •  Garnier  BB cream in fair.  This is my fave BB cream. The only thing  with this  BB Cream is, that its not really suitable for Light skin because I still think it is quite dark for my skin, but somehow I made it work. But I will repurchase mostly likely in spring/ summer.

Nails

  • Etos Nail polish remover . Good remover and yeesh repurchase as my current remover is crap.

Miscellaneous

  •  Cotton pads
  • Tea trea oil
