New in + short reviews

18. 12. 2014


Guilty as charged: I’ve gone a bit crazy with shopping this month! As I usually cannot wait to test every product as soon as I get home, this post will be a combination of the things I purchased and some short reviews. It is featuring makeup and skincare; however, there will be another one going online soon and will focus on some of my latest hair products.


The first one is the Ziaja hand cream with coconut. It contains coconut lipids, rich in omega 3 and 6, and canola oil. I have to say, I was a bit sceptic about this one because the scent is incredibly strong, but it turned out to be one of my favorite hand creams so far! It is very moisturising and melts into the skin in seconds. On the plus side, the price is just around € 2–3 in DM.  ♦  The second one is the Gabriela Sabatini Eau de toilette. I’ve been thinking about getting this one for a week and then my sister got it for me as a present! ♥ The scent is very complex, for those who are not very professional in the perfume district (me included!), this is somehow similar to the Chanel 5. I made a “short research” and to my surprise, they both share some fragrance notes, such as neroli, jasmine and sandalwood. I would say that not a lot of women approve of this kind of perfumes, especially because the scent is very strong and stays with you throughout the whole day. Again, it is very affordable, the 30 ml bottle costs just around € 20. Needless to say, I love it!


I almost finished my Gariner micellar water, so I decided to try the L’Oréal Skin Perfection. It works great as well and cleanses the skin in no time. The only difference I’ve noticed so far is that I don’t feel the need to wash may face after I use it like I do after using the Garnier one. It costs € 5,99 in DM, but I got it for 3,99 with one of the coupons for 150 points.  ♦  The next product is the Balea Oil Fluid for face cleansing with camellia oil and vitamin E. It promises to remove makeup and other impurities. I certainly expected too much from this product, especially after such a long period of using micellar waters. The fluid didn’t lather as it should accordding to the packaging, but rather created a weird milk-like texture and just messed up all of my makeup. It is probably best to use it after removing everything in the evening or in the morning. It costs around € 2.


I wrote about the Max Factor Excess Shimmer in shade Bronze two weeks ago and I’ve been using it almost every day ever since. ♥ It costs around € 10.  ♦  The second eyeshadow is the L’Oréal  Color Riche eyeshadow in shade Lumiere (500). It’s a beautiful golden eyeshadow with great pigmentation, but I haven’t tried it properly yet. I may make a separate post about it in the near future. The price is around € 8.


Last but not least, we have two nail polishes. The first one is the Maybelline Colorama nail polish in shade 165, a lovely taupe color. As I’ve said countless times, their long lasting effect surprises me every single time. With this one, two coats are obligatory, as the first one is really transparent and uneven. The price is a bit less than € 3.  ♦  The second one is the Catrice Luxury Lacquers in shade Bronze Upon a Time (06), isnt’t the name just adorable? :D The glitter has gorgeous copper and golden shades, very festive indeed. It costs around € 4.  In addition, I’ll be featuring both of them in one of the posts in the following week.

Have you tried any of these products so far? :)

Take care ♥
