Review: Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm


Hi loves! This winter my lips where saved by Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm (10 EUR, 15ml). 79.5% of the ingredients are natural origins and it doesn't contain any parabens.

The lip balm comes in a glass jar and the formula of it is like butter, very thick. The Reve de Miel skincare range was created 20 years ago and the special ingredient in it is honey, which is perfect for dry skin.

I have to say its the most nourishing lip balm I have ever used. It makes my lips from the first use soft and prevents me getting chapped lips. I can feel how hydrating it is and the feeling stays all day. I need to apply it only twice a day, morning and evening. That guarantees my lips are always smooth and hydrated, even though I wear liquid lipsticks daily. Another thing I love about this product is the delicate citrus scent it has, its so yummy and refreshing. It makes me wanna taste it!

Before I tried this I loved my Sensai lip treatment, but I have found I prefer the Nuxe lip balm. It does a better job keeping my lips soft and hydrated and on Sephora its 10 euros. The Sensai lip treatment is almost 100 euros.

I think I'm the last person to try this, but if you are like me and haven't tried it, its worth checking out. Its one of the most amazing things I have discovered this year.


I'll leave a link to the lip balm here. I didn't find it on Sephora France, so I left link to Cult Beauty.

Review: Hoia Lemongrass Bodyscrub


Hi loves! I have been obsessing over a body scrub and I know its not the most glamorous thing in the world, but this one is brilliant. I have been using non stop Hoia Lemongrass Bodyscrub (75ml). The full size is 200ml and is 12.90 euros. 

If Hoia is not familiar brand to you, its Estonian beauty brand and they make handmade, 100% natural and cruelty free beauty products. 

The scrub comes in a little tub, which is plastic. The first thing I noticed when opening it up is the lovely lemongrass scent. Its one of my favorite scents in body care products. I love how refreshing it is. 

The formula of the scrub is thicker and I feel with this type of scrubs all the dead skin cells come off. It contains shea butter and cocoa oil, which provide the hydration to the skin.

I like to use it all over the body. It does a great job getting all the dead skin cells off my skin and leaves it smooth and hydrated. I don't need to use a body lotion after using this scrub. That's why I love it so much. It makes it smooth and at the same time it nourishes the skin. Another plus of this scrub is that it makes your bathroom smell like lemongrass (and its strong) and its another reason I love it. I'm all about aromatic therapy and this scrub gives me the spa experience. 

I'm all about these kind of sugar scrubs and I get the results I want with these. The only thing with natural beauty products is that you need to use it up fast, because the shelf life of it is only 6 months. I usually get one at the time and use it up and then pick up another one. If you are interested you can check it out here. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a new body scrub.

Review: Nature Republic Aqua Super AquaMax Cream


Hi loves! I have been testing out Kbeauty brand Nature Republic. Its my fist time trying their products and I have been testing out their Aqua Super Aqua Max Cream (80ml, 8.64 EUR). Before jumping into this review I wanna let you know I have oily skin type and my skin is not sensitive.

It comes in a super cute packaging! I love the  green jar ( which is glass) its in and the cap of it makes it the cutest thing ever. The cap looks like the the cream inside (water gel). The formula of the cream is like a gel, which sinks into the skin effortlessly. It feels very refreshing and cooling on skin. It protects the skin from external environment by forming a moisture film over the skin. Hyaluronic acid helps to keep the skin moisture levels up longer.

I use it as a last step in my skincare routine. Its my morning moisturizer. You can see my morning skincare routine here, if you are interested. It sinks into the skin instantly and keeps me hydrated all day. The only thing that bothers me about this cream is the fragrance in it. Its so heavily fragranced! I would prefer something bit less or it to be totally fragrance free. I wouldn't recommend this cream for people who have sensitive skin type. 

You can find the full ingredient list and the product itself here

Overall I'm happy with this cream. It keeps me hydrated all day and doesn't feel heavy. I also love the refreshing feeling it gives my skin. I also wakes me up in the morning :) 


Do you like this type of creams?

Review: Béllapierre Shimmer 9 Stack: Fabulous

Hi loves! This week I'll share with you guys something awesome from Béllapierre. I have finally ready to review their Shimmer 9 Stack in Fabulous ($90.00). This contains their 9 shimmer powders, which are loose shadows. All the shadows are stacked up on top of each other, so I can only open one at the time, but I like I can see them all at once and its compact, perfect for traveling ;)



I'll be showing a close up of all 9 shadows in this tower, because it didn't photograph very well when its all stacked up. Anyway you'll find the swaches down below.

These are all super pigmented pigments and perfect to glam up any eye look. I like to use these with glitter primer from NYX. Its also what I used on the swatches to make it stick better. Its just so much easier to use the pigments that way.


I have been wearing them on and off for sometime now and I really do love these as a lid color. The colors here are fun and bright. These also work well together and blend into each other easily and these also work well with other powder shadows in my collection.

The staying power of these shadows is amazing. I apply it in the morning and in the evening it looks as good as in morning. 


This set is pricy number (I bought it in Estonia and it was way less, I think it was around 50 euros), but it will last me very long time and it just makes me wanna use more color and get out of my comfort zone. If you have read my other blog Pink Frenzy (link) sometime then you know how much I'm stuck in my nudes. I need some color in my life! I think everyone needs for special occasion. Anyway down below you can see swatches of the four shadows above.


  • Desire - is shiny pitch pink. I like its not too light.
  • Hurly Burly - is gorgeous shimmery purple. 
  • Ocean - is a bight icy baby blue. Here is a look I did with it.
  • Provence - is a shimmery light purple.

Lets take a closer look of the other shadows in this stack. I'm sorry guys this post is so super long. But I love how pretty the shadows look in their little homes.






  • Reluctance -  is golden olive green. Its so stunning shade and here is a look I did with it.
  • Discoteque - is a brilliant light golden green. Its a perfect shade for fall.
  • Tropic - is bright green. I really wanna do cut crease eye look with it.
  • Celebration - is a gorgeous golden copper and here is a look I did with it.
  • Cinnabar - is shimmery red.




I'm so happy with these shadows. I have another 9 stack from them, which contains only glitters. I need to work with it bit more and then it will be up here. Hope you enjoyed this post and let me know your favorite mineral makeup brand.

If you are interested in this set, you can find it here.

Review: Joik Rosewater Face Mist


Hi loves! I have been all about face mists and all kind of toners. Toner is must have item in my skincare routine as long as I can remember. I feel a good toner keeps my skin smooth and acne free. Anyway today I wanna share with you Joik Rosewater Face Mist (50ml, 7.50EUR). 

The face mist comes in a plastic bottle and its easy to use. I spray it onto my skin every morning. The sprayer on it gives a fine and even mist. The 50ml bottle its in is perfect for traveling or keep in my handbag, if I wanna refresh the skin through out the day (no makeup days).

Rosewater is good for the skin and it helps hydrate, refresh, sooth and tone the skin. It also helps to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. At the same time it strengthens the skin and regenerates skin tissue.

I personally wouldn't put much fate into its ability to smooth wrinkles. The reason why I'm so impressed with it, is that it instantly hydrate my skin when applied. I use it after washing my face in the morning and it feels so good sprayed on my face. It also wakes me up and I feel refreshed.  



Ingredients: rosa damascena flower water, bensyl alcohol, sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate

All the info on the ingredients is from EWG's Skin Deep Cosmetics Database (low hazardmedium hazardhigh hazard). If I haven't colored an ingredient it means I didn't find it in the database.


I'm very happy with this mist and love the rose scent it has <3 I wish it would come in a bigger bottle though. I'll use this 50ml up way too fast. If you wanna check it out for yourself, you can find it here. If you have any recommendation for this type of item let me know in the comments below.

Best Natural Beauty in 2017


Hi loves! Last year went by me so fast and in the beginning of every year I like to do ultimate favorites post. I haven't done any of natural beauty faves, so its time to share all the fantastic products I tried in 2017.

Makeup:

I have been loving Ontic Minerals and I tried so much from the last year. One of my favorites are their Mineral Bronzers and I have shade Sunblessed and Chocolicious (3g, 18.95€, review). These blend like a dream on skin and give the look of natural tan, at the same time both of these give a natural glow to the skin. Both shades are absolutely gorgeous and worth checking out, if you wanna try natural cosmetics or are on a market for new bronzer. 
Continuing with Ontic Minerals, I have also added new Mineral Eyeshadows from them in my collection (review). Their eyeshadows are beautiful, specially the loose eyeshadows. They are intense, blendable and the packaging is awesome (there is no mess when using these). Hopefully I can add more colors into my collection this year. They do have some fun colors as well, which I have my eye on. I try to add more color into my looks and not just wear nudes ;)
Next is also Estonian brand and its Le'Maagi. Last year I tried their Eyeshadow in shade 24K Gold (review). The formula of this shadow is one of the best I have tried. It feels so creamy to the touch and the pigmentation of it is out of this world. What you see in the pan is what you get on the lid. I don't own any other eyeshadow, which preforms so well and looks so intense. It makes me wanna get every single shadow they make and see if all their shadows are so brilliant.

Next fave is from Bellapierre Cosmetics and its their Mineral Lipstick in shade Catwalk (review). The shade Catwalk is perfect everyday pinky nude. It goes well with any eye look, feels comfortable on lips and its long lasting for creamy lipstick. I already have picked up few more shades into my collection, which I'll share with you guys this year for sure, keep an eye out for that ;)


Skincare:

Lets continue with skincare faves and this year I didn't find many products to obsess over. One this, which is unique and worth mentioning is  Domina Elegans Golden Beauty Mask (review). This is a gel mask, which bubbles up when applied and get out all the dirt from the skin. I could feel it and my skin looked and felt amazing after using it (its also Estonian beauty brand). I have one of their other masks to try, but this is in my list of skincare items I wanna repurchase.

Next 2 items are from Aïcha and both have been new finds. I love their Cream Milk Cleanser and Salt Face Scrub (review). Both products are gentle to the skin. The cleanser is such a nice step in the morning to cleanse the skin and I love it doesn't dry out my skin and this applies to both products. If I want more hydration I remove the cleanser with toner. The scrub is brilliant as well. It gently remove off all the dirt and leaves my skin soft, smooth and hydrated. With both of these products I haven't felt any uncomfortable tightness on skin, which happens with so many other cleanser.  






Hair & Body:

Best hair care find this year is Blessix Hair Silk + Vitamins (review). This is also Estonian beauty brand, which I discovered when I was in Ilu Mess (its Estonian beauty event).  This is used on wet hair, before blowdrying. This gem provides hydration to the hair and also protects against the heat. Every time I use it my hair looks so shiny, healthy and its so much easier to tame it. My hair can be hard to work with, because its naturally dry and wavy. 

I have also used it on dry hair and that way it also works for me. It instantly hydrates, gives it shine and makes in manageable. I feel like I don't need to use as much hair oil when I have this hair spray in my routine.
The last awesome natural beauty product I discovered this year is Hoia Lavender, Rosemary & Grapefruit Bodywhip (review). If you are on a lookout for good hydrating body products, this is it. This feels light weight when scooped up and turns into oil when applied on skin. It keeps my skin hydrated all day and the next day and the next day. Its best thing ever!




This is all the awesome products I discovered this year. I'm so in love with every single one and highly recommend any of these items.
