GlamGlow Instamud 60 second pore-refining treatment Mask review

GlamGlow Instamud 60 second pore-refining treatment Mask review

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

Today’s post is on one of my favorite topics. Skincare! The last couple of years I am focusing more on the overall health of my skin. As I have noticed how important it is taking care of your skin!

Even though my skin is not too bad, I do notice that the sun has kissed this delicate part of my body too often leaving some sun spots as proof. Also somehow I have noticed that my pores seem bigger in my thirties than my twenties. Which overall is not the most flattering look when applying makeup. Realizing this it has become a priority taking good care of my skin.

So once upon time wandering in the skincare aisle of Douglas, I noticed a product that I did not see before from GlamGLow . The yellow packaging just seduced me to take a look at this product. Upon reading the words on the packaging ” Pore Refining, 60 seconds, and even skin ! I knew this product had to come home with me.

GlamGlow Insta Mud

The mask claims to give you refined pores, smooth, soft and even skin in 60 seconds. Amazing right! Application of the mask was very easy, you just have to apply a thick even layer on a clean face and let it sit for 60 seconds. In the meantime the mask foams up, giving you a slight tingly feeling. Afterwards you wash your face.

After the removal of the mask my face felt so soft and my complexion did look more even. I have not yet seen a massive reduction of pores but I will definitely keep on using this mask. The mask retails in the stores for 34,95 euro’s for 50 ml. Looking at the benefits provided I think I would repurchase this mask as my face feels fabulous after each use and the application is very easy and quick. Also this product is very convenient especially when you are short for time.

Thumbs Mid Price Gift Idea : Benefit B.right! Delights

Thumbs Mid Price Gift Idea : Benefit B.right! Delights

Hi Everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

This very last minute gift idea is for anyone who likes skin care, a little beauty, Benefit Products and love anything particular cute.

When I saw these Benefit giftsets in the stores I could not resist picking this up as they contain some Benefit classics. I picked this set up from Douglas for € 44.99. Which I thought was not a bad price for the products you get. This set comes in a cute cake shaped tin and contains four products.

The set contains the following:

50 ML Instant Comeback Facial Serum

Total Moisture Facial Cream full size

Browvo! Conditioning Primer

It’s Potent Brightening Eye Cream.

This has been the first time I have been using Benefit skin care and I must say they feel pretty good on the skin.

Benefit had a lot of cute sets this year some little ones and the big sets. Varying from sets with more makeup items and some more with skincare.

I hope everybody found this last minute gift useful and I wish you all great holidays!

Until next post friends!

Stuff I just Need to Use Up ( Body and Skincare edition)

Stuff I just Need to Use Up ( Body and Skincare edition)

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

Don’t you sometimes have the feeling, that you keep on buying and receiving things, and things just land in the cupboard. Yep I am in that phase right now. Don’t get me wrong, I really feel grateful that I am in this position to buy and receive a lot of things, but I just don’t want things to end up in the bin! And yes sometimes I levitate to my faves that are in my eyesight and forget about some good stuff I have in my cupboards and drawers. So therefore it is my mission to start using things up. Starting with some body and skincare. Please read below about the selection of items I just need to use up.

Skincare

Body Shop Oils of Life Intensely Revitalizing Sleeping Cream 5ml (Travel Size). A travel friendly night cream, this will be perfect for my Viena trip end March. Please keep your eyes open for that blog post!

Vitamin E Moisture Cream 15 ml ( Travel Size) A nice day cream. I have heard some nice feedback about this cream so this will be tested as well on the Viena trip stated above.

Body Shop Strawberry Lip Butter. Always good to have a little lip balm on hand sure this will come to use soon as it is going to be a true winter this week.

Body care

Body Shop Mango whipped lotion 60 ml. This smells lovely all though would be more inclined to use this one in the summer as it is quite fruity.

Body Shop Frosted Berries lotion 60 ml. This is a contender to come with me to Viena.

Body Shop Vanila Chai Body Lotion 60 ml. As previously stated above this is also a contender to come with me. As you might now I am a sucker for Vanilla fragrances.

Body Shop Body Butter in Strawberry 200 ml. An old favorite. Will put this one asap in my bathroom. So I can use this after showers.

Shower Gels

Sanicur 1000 ml Shower gel . One of my favorite as it is without perfume, does the job and overall makes me smell soapy clean.

Twilight 250 ml Shower gel.  This is a discovery from late  2017 and I love it. As it was limited edition I do not want to use it up so quickly. But yes love this in combination with the sleepy time lotion.

Looking at my list of items above I think one of the first things that will be used up are the day and night cream and the Twilight Shower gel. But who knows. Maybe some of these items will become favorites.

I hope you all enjoyed this post! My intention is to do this as well with make up, nail polishes, foundations  b  and such. Let me know if you are interested in this.

Until next post friends!

Thumbs Review: Karados Aloe Vera Mask Pack

Thumbs Review: Karados Aloe Vera Mask Pack

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

Today it is time for another review,  and yep it is another sheet mask try out. Leave a comment if you like sheet masks!

I bought this Korean sheet mask in a drugstore in Bali,  and did not have the opportunity to test out this mask.  What did I think of this mask?

 

Thumbs up for

Price ( cannot remember the price but it was dirt cheap)

Smell ( Clean, Fresh Smell) 

Refreshing cool feeling

Softness of skin after use

Thumbs down for

Slight sticky feeling when soaking in skin

Mask did not fit fully my face 

Overall thoughts after use

This is such a great little mask for the price. I cannot remember the exact amount I paid but it was dirt cheap compared to some of my favorite sheet masks. Also the mask felt really cooling after application. So this would really be great when you are abroad in a warm country .  Very important to me is that my skin felt very soft once mask removed. I am definitely picking up this mask from the drugstore when I am back in Bali.  So yeah this mask I would def recommend!

I hope you all enjoyed this review. Please let me know what other brands of sheet masks are good. Curious about other mask try outs click here.

Until next post friends.

Thumbs Review: Starskin Nourishing and Cooling Double Layer Foot Mask Socks

Thumbs Review: Starskin Nourishing and Cooling Double Layer Foot Mask Socks

Hi everybody dear readers and loyal subbies,

For today I am back with a new review,  and guess what is for one of my favorite beauty brands.  Yes you guessed right, it is StarSkin! I love this brand for their face masks and I thought lets try something new. So in a last shopping spree I opted for the Starskin Nourishing and Cooling Double Layer Foot Mask Socks as my  feet were and are in dire need of repair.

Starskin claims the following about these Foot Mask Socks

” Unique, patented foot mask intensely nourishes, soothes and revitalizes feet”
”Relieves swelling and cools down tired feet in just 20 minutes”
” Innovative Double-Layer Technology simulates the results of a professional foot spa”

Thumbs up for

Nourishing my feet, it got rid of a lot dryness I had on the sole of my feet.

Soothed my feet and took away some soreness that I had .

Thumbs down for 

Did not experience the cooling effect the mask claimed. Would believe that  chilling the mask in the fridge would help.

Overall thoughts:

This mask helps to reduce a lot of dryness and reduced the overall look of cracks on my feet. Also my feet felt soft and nourished after use.

Have you ever tried this foot mask? And if so what were your thoughts about it. Any tips for softer feet? Please leave a comment.

Until next post friends.

Thumbs February Favorites

Thumbs February Favorites

Hi Everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

March has started and it is time for a very belated Thumbs February Favorites. This blog post contains some lifestyle and beauty faves. So I hope you will enjoy it !

Douglas Home Spa Balancing Shower Foam in Polynesian Dream.  

This just smells very Spa like and smells so clean. It is very hard for me to describe this fragrance but it smells sooo good.  So if you can get hold of this shower gel I would !

Essie For the Twill of It

This is just such an interesting polish. Sort of monochromatic. You can see different colors in it like blue’s,purple’s, greens and grey’s. It is just gorgeous and this polish  wears very well.

Cauliflower Rice

Side tracking a bit here but please bear with me. This is such a great alternative to rice if you don’t want any carbs for your dinner.  For example the cauliflower rice matches very well with a green vegetable curry.

Mac Face and Body Foundation in NC25

It is a nice light foundation that evens out the skin tone for a natural look . I have often gravitated to this foundation if I felt like wearing foundation.

Too Faced Chocolate Bar pallet 

Fave colours : White Chocolate, Marzipan  Strawberry  Bon Bon and Creme Brulee

MAC Strobe Cream

Just gives back a lot of luminosity to the skin. Your skin looks fresh,dewy and healthy and overall my makeup looks better.  But that is my just my opinion.

Booked Bali Trip 

 I cannot remember if I wrote about this before, but in 2 months time I am flying to Bali for a 16 day trip.  Whoop whoop! I have never been so far away  from home, but I am looking so forward to it. At the moment I have the time and freedom to travel and I am taking full advantage of that. My plan is to write some posts from Bali if I am disciplined  and if the Wifi agrees. So hopefully this happens.

I hope you all  enjoyed this post and as always feel free to leave a comment.

Until next post friends!
