Beauty Haul

Hey my loves,

a couple of days ago I went into my local drugstore and bought some goodies and I thought I would share them with you. I haven’t treated myself lately with some good skin care and hair products so that’s what I went for.

I’ve seen it online that the drugstore I went to is now carrying some Koran skin care and I thought I would try something. I went for the “Awakening Under Eye Mask with Ginseng & Eucalyptus”. I already tried them out and I really liked them. They had a cooling effect and felt quite nice, and I did see a difference afterwards. It’s just sad that you only get one use out of them.

The other mask is a sheet mask. The sheet mask has kaolin clay and green tea extract in it. I was really interested to see how a clay sheet mask would work and it worked quite well, the mask hardened and left a little bit of remaining clay on your skin, which was easily to wash off. I really enjoyed this mask and my skin definitely felt tighter and clearer afterwards.

Lately I’ve been really into pastel colored nail polish so I had to buy these two colors. The left one is like an army green one but in matte and the right one is a blue-ish light purple. “Trend it up” really has amazing nail polishes, they last long and look great on the nail, for a drugstore nail polish they are a real steal. If you ever come across I would highly recommend that you try them out.

Now, if you are a YouTube junkie just as I am you may have seen all the US-girls go on an amazing trip for this product release. And ever since they talked about it I waited patiently for it to come out here in Germany. This Garnier Fructis product is a hair mask, they come in, I believe, three different versions. I went for the repairing papaya hair food masks, since my hair is quite damaged due to bleaching it and because of the cold winter months. I haven’t tried this one yet, because I’m finished another mask, but I did smell it and, oh my good, it smells so good. Can’t wait to try it!

This was it all for my haul, it wasn’t a lot, but I still hoped you enjoyed it. Have you tried any Korean beauty products? Let me know in the comments below.

I wish you all a wonderful day!

My Evening Skincare Routine

Hey my loves,

in today’s blog post I thought I share my evening skincare with you. In the past couple of weeks I tried out a couple of new things and I thought I could share them with you since I really learned to enjoy some of the new steps I added.

Taking My Makeup Off

On a day to day base I usually wear some makeup, which obviously I have to take off before I cant properly clean my face. And while I used an oil before I now switch to the L’Oréal Paris Fine Flowers Cleansing Cream. And it breaks up my makeup so much smoother and leaves my skin feeling so much more moisturized and cared for than the oil ever did. I use a small amount of it and rub it all over my face using my hands, and to take the product completely off I use a makeup wipe and just wipe down my face. The makeup wipes I am currently using are the Garnier Micellar Water Wipes.

When I finished taking my makeup off I usually go in with a new makeup wipe and make sure everything is gone. Then I wet my face and use a soap. The face soap is a gel formula by L’Oréal Paris, it is the L’Oréal Paris Fine Flowers Cleansing Wash Gel. And after I massaged the soap onto my face I used my Braun Face 852 (similar one) with the sensitive brush and cleanse my skin in circular motion.

Face Mask

About two times a week I will use a face mask and lately I’ve been loving the L’Oréal Paris Pure Clay Blemish Rescue Face Mask. It just really helps to clear up my skin and I love the feeling of my skin after I used it. Review blog post coming up real soon!

Moisturizing

When I’m done using my cleansing brush, I wash off everything and use my towel and pad my face dry. And lastly I moisturize using my L’Oréal Paris Triple Active Night Cream.

Do you guys have any suggestions for eye creams and toners? I turned 26 this past November and I feel like I need to start taking real good care of my skin. Also, would you like me to do a morning skincare routine, I use some different products in the morning. And also, just a small disclaimer, this blog post is not sponsored at all –  I just love L’Oréal skincare products so much!

I wish you all a wonderful day!

My Skin Care Routine – Spring/Summer 2016

Hey my loves,

today I’m sharing my updated spring/summer skincare routine with you. I did an entry like this last year if you want you can check them out here: My Morning Skin Care Routine – Spring 2015 and My Evening Skin Care Routine – Spring 2015!

But now onto my new and updated skin care routine, I won’t be splitting this entry into two, simply because I don’t think it’s necessary. But I do hope that you enjoy this entry and if you do, make sure to give it a thumbs up and feel free to share it on your social media!

Morning Routine

My morning skin care is quick, because I rather spent time on my make-up and hair then on my skincare. To cleanse my face I use a wash creme based on clay, I use a drugstore brand called ‘Alverde’, it clears your pores and has an antibacterial effect. It’s especially targeting blemished skin and works against pimples and blackheads. Also I have to mention that ‘Alverde’ is a nature cosmetics brand, so everything they use in their products is way better for you than most of the chemical things other brands put in their products. I can just speak for my experience that my skin cleared up pretty good with these products, but as you will see later I also have other non-nature based products in my routine, you just have to find the right mix of products that work for you.

After I use the wash creme I am continuing with the face tonic and last but not least to bring back some moisture into my skin I use my trusted and loved L’Oréal Paris – Hydra Active 3 Day Moisturiser. And to moisturize my lips I use my favorite EOS – Lip Balm in Pomegranate Raspberry.

Here are some products that are similar to what I am using:

Evening Routine

In the evenings I like to take my time with my skin. Firstly, I take of all my make up using a cleansing wipe. I use different ones all the time, but manly Garnier wipes are my favorite, especially: Garnier – Micellar Extra Gentle Cleansing Wipes But currently I’m trying out these: Garnier – Clarifying Cleansing Wipes for oily skin. To remove my eye make up I use an oil based cleanser from a drugstore, it’s literally the best I’ve tried so far. When all my make up is removed I like to give my skin a light peeling using Neutrogena – Visibly Clear fine and matte skin refining peeling. I also use the toner from my morning routine again after that.

Two to three nights in a week I use a mask and lately I’ve been loving the Cattier – Masque Argile Green Clay and after that I use the Clinique – Anti-Blemish Solution and then for my moisturiser the Clinique – Turnaround Moisturiser. To moisturize my lips I’m using the EOS – Lip Balm in Pomegranate Raspberry again. (Currently trying out the Clinique products to see if I like them more than my L’Oréal moisturiser.)

Here are some products that are similar to what I am using:

I hope I could give you a good overview over my skin care routine. And if you enjoyed this entry make sure to let me know and as always if you have any questions or suggestions for me comment.

I wish you all a wonderful day!
