Beauty Haul: Ontic Minerals, Joik, balance me

Hi loves! This week I have for you little haul, which contains bit of makeup and body care items :) When I visited Estonia, I did ended up getting some mineral makeup from brand called Ontic Minerals. I loved the highlighter from them so much (review), that I wanted to try more. So first I picked up their Mineral Blush in shade P04 Girls Powder (3 g). The shade of it looks so pretty and is perfect for pale skin tone, like mine (the swatches of everything is down below).

Then I did got two of their Mineral Eyeshadows and I picked up shades E24 Mamma Cholly and E38 Best Friends Forever (2 g). Mineral eyeshadow can be sometimes messy to use, but there is something about it. I feel mineral makeup always offers more interesting shades, when it comes to eyeshadow. The first shade I picked up is E24 and its warm red orange shade, which will be perfect for this time of the year. The other eyeshadow, E38  is almost white, but more to the cream side and has beautiful golden sheen to it.

R to L: Eye shadow shades E38, E24, Mineral Veil, Mineral Blush

The last item I got from them is their Mineral Veil and its in shade R2 Translucent (6 g). Its a setting powder and it does have some sheen to it, so It would be perfect for setting my under eye area. On the swatch I build it up a lot, so you guys would be able to see how it looks. 

I also got Joik Citrus Bath Truffles (310 g), which where in my wishlist, I'll link it here, if you haven't seen it yet. I was thinking these would smell more citrus, but the scent of it is not strong at all, which in away is better I guess. I bet the scent of it comes out more, once I use it in my bath water. 

The last item in this haul is something I picked up in TK Maxx and its balance me Super Moisturising Body Wash (200 ml). I was sold on the moisturizing part, because this time of the year my skin is getting dryer and hot shower is not helping either, so using more hydrating body wash seems the way to go and 99% ingredients in it are natural.  

This is it for this haul :) Have you guys tried any of these products before? If you have, let me know in the comments how you liked these. Also there is a giveaway going on my other blog, which you can check out here

Review: Seraphine Botanicals Rose Cheeks

Hi loves! In August Style Tone box I got Seraphine Botanicals Rose Cheeks (10 ml, $20.00), which can be used on the cheeks and also on the lips. If you don't follow my other blog and haven't seen that post, you can check out the unboxing post of Style Tone box here.

The tint comes in a squeeze tube and is easy to get out as much as I need. With this a little bit does go along way, so I don't need to squeeze out too much product.

It contains 95% ingredients natural origins and is formulated with watermelon seed oil and ylang-ylang oil. It provides natural flush to the cheeks, which stayed on me all day. I absolutely love the gel texture of it and its not tested on animals. The formula is also vegan and GMO free.

It feels so light weight and its easy to blend out. I like I don't need much and I like the shade of it. Its leaves my cheeks with healthy flush, which I would get being outside on cold winter day. 

I also tried it out on lips, but it didn't last that long on my lips. It did felt hydrating on lips, which surprised me, as tints hardly ever feel hydrating. It also gives really nice rosy color to the lips.

It does contain fragrance and has a lovely rosy scent to it. I only smell it when I put my nose really close to the tube. Other then that I don't smell it. It hasn't caused me to brake out or irritated my skin.

I'm so happy I ended up getting this tint in the Style Tone box and its so fuss free to use and it stays on my cheeks all day.

Review: Olivolio Botanics Donkey Milk Extra moisturizing Body Butter

Hi loves! The colder weather is here and I'm all about body butters. I have dry skin (except my face) and I need all the hydration I can get. I have been loving Olivolio Botanics Donkey Milk Extra moisturizing Body Butter (250 ml, 14.90 EUR) and I got it when I was in Greece. You can read that post here.

The body butter comes in a chubby jar and the formula of it is very thick. I always want to see everything in packaging, which allows me to pump the product out, but in this case it wouldn't be possible. This body butter is way too thick for the pump. 

Its rich with vitamins A, B, C, D and E, its a great anti-aging treatment. This body butter hydrates, regenerates and renews the skin. Its not tested on animals and is free of mineral oils, parabens and is made in Grease.

Like I mentioned before the formula is very thick and it takes sometime to skin into the skin. It doesn't take too long time though. I like how light it feels, like its wiped. It instantly hydrates my skin and leaves my skin soft and smooth. There is no sticky feel to it once it sinks into the skin. I feel like it makes my skin also feel thither and I feel like my skin doesn't get so fast dry as it does with other body butters I have used in the past.

I have really fell in love with this product. I love the wiped formula and how well it hydrates my skin. It has been absolute pleasure to use. I was worried, if I can find it here, but i did manage to find the page where they ship all over the world. You can find it here.

Review: Natura Siberica Sauna & Spa Slimming Hot Salt Body Scrub

Hi loves! I'm a huge fan of body scrubs and Natura Siberica does some great ones. I have been liking their Sauna & Spa Slimming Hot Salt Body Scrub (370 ml) and I picked it up in Estonia. I'm not suer how much I payed for it, but it wasn't too expensive. I don't remember how much I payed for it, but it wasn't over 20 EUR. Their products are more to affordable side. 

This is anti-cellulite body scrub, which contains organic juniper extract, Siberian rapa salt, fireweed and Altai mountain honey

The organic juniper extract contains resins, fatty oils, vegetable wax, organic acids, colorants and is rich with vitamin C. These all help to make the skin more elastic and firmer.

Siberian rapa salt contains lot of macro- and micro-elements, and these help to boost the immunity and regenerate the skin cells. It also sustains skin elasticity and firmness. The salt part help to exfoliate the dry skin cells and even out the skin texture.

The organic green tea helps detoxes, cleanses deeply and also tones the skin. 

The Altai mountain honey is rich with mineral salts and vitamins A, C, PP, H, E, K and B group. These help to  activate collagen synthesis.

This body scrub comes in a chubby jar and I do need to scoop out the product. The formula of it is to the thicker side and I don't think it could be possible to get out in any other packaging. Its so thick! It has very strong fresh herbal scent, which I like (Specially when my nose is bit stuck. Opens it up right away).

I use it under shower when my skin is wet. I like to use it on my legs mostly, but it can be used wherever you have problem arias. I like the formula has salt parts in it, which help to scrub the skin throughly and leave it so smooth and firm.

I personally don't believe it will take my cellulite away, but it does wonders to my skin. It leaves it soft and smooth, also firmer. My skin always looks healthier after I have used it. I can't be more pleased and I'm so happy I have another body scrub from them, which waits to be tested.

If you are interested in it, I did find it on Amazon and I'll link it here.

Review: Turbliss Bioactive Peat Toner

Hi loves! Like I said last week today's post is on Turbliss Bioactive Peat Toner (100 ml). If you haven't seen the last week's post you can check it out here. The Turbliss toner is vegan, hand made and 100% natural.

The toner comes in a glass bottle and has a spray and I use it to spray it on a cotton pad and then use it on my face morning and evening (after cleansing). 

Its 100% pure peat water, which claim to cleanse, refresh, revitalize and tones the skin. It also claims to minimize the pores and also even out the skin tone.

It definetly feels refreshing and cleanses the skin for sure. If I have any traces of makeup left on my skin, it removes it. 

I feel like it did make my pores smaller, but my skin is not in the best condition at the moment. Some reason I'm braking out and usually its the toner that keeps my skin clear. It just how I personally feel. 

I thinks its a great product, but my skin needs something different. I have oily skin type and I feel like I need something bit stronger to keep my skin clear. I have used up most of it and I will use it all up, but I don't think I'll buy it again. I'm still happy I bought it and tried out.

Wishlist: Estonian Beauty

Hi loves! I haven't lived in Estonia for sometime now (around 7 years) and in Estonia lately there is so many natural beauty brands and I want to try everything :D So here is my wishlist at the moment!

Lets start out with Joik and I have reviewed few of their products on my blog before. I have tried their their bath products, which you can read about here and here. I have my eye on their Citrus Bath Truffles (310 g, 12,00 €, link).

This pictures is from Joik.eu

I can imagine how refreshing this will smell. I love citrus scent on bath and body products. This is suitable for dry skin, which is exactly what my skin will need upcoming season. I love colder months to take bath, I find it so relaxing.

Next Joik item in my list is their Shower Oil Fresh (200 ml, 15,73 €, link). The name already makes me want to try it and it claims to wash gently and thats what my skin will need upcoming season. Its with avocado and grape seed oil, which sounds like it will be so moisturizing to the skin.

Next is their Cleansing Facial Foam with Cucumber & Watercress Extracts & Aloe Juice (150 ml, 18,50 €, link). I like foam cleansers, because on colder months they seem more gentle on the skin. It claims to balance and restore the skin.

I'm trying out at the moment Turbliss toner, which I'll talk about next week, but I do have other products I would love to try from them, like their Illuminating Peat Water with 24K Gold (100 ml, link). I like it can be used on face and hair.

I'm in love with body oils. I feel body oils sink into the skin so much faster then butters and instantly hydrate the skin. I can't wait to get my hands on Turbliss Firming and Enlivening Body Oil (link). Its 100% natural and when applied to damp skin, it claims to sink in fast. The packaging looks cute too :)

The last item from them on my wishlist is their Magical Berry Oil (10ml, link). It contains vitamin E and A, and is for 30+. I'm in love with facial oils and its a must have step in my skincare routine. I like this is suitable to use around eyes and lips as well.

This is it for my wishlist :) Have you tried any of these products before? Let me know in the comments below if you have and whats your thoughts.

Review: Earth Kiss Miracle Clay Facial Hydrate Bamboo Sheet Mask

Hi loves! Hope you are doing well :) Today I have for you Earth Kiss Miracle Clay Facial Hydrate Bamboo Sheet Mask (2.99 EUR), which is 100% natural mask, with fruit, vegetable and herbal extracts. I have reviewed some of their other masks on the blog before, which you can check out here, here and here.

Their masks are all one time use, which is great for travel and you always have a fresh mask in hand. I love these for travel, because I like to do a mask everyday and these don't take up a lot of space in my bag. 

Its energised with 85 plant micronutrients and it also contains argile clay, baobab, tangerine and Himalayan Shilajit. This mask deep cleanses the skin and also is moisturizing.

I apply it on cleansed skin and left it for 15 minutes. It can be on skin up to 20 minutes. After removing the sheet mask I wash the left over off (it is a clay masks after all). My skin is so soft after the mask and also smooth, plumper and my skin tone is brighter. You can see the result for yourself on the before and after picture down below.

Its another great mask from them and its one of my favorites from the ones I have tried with their Million Year Clay Facial Revitalise Bamboo Sheet Mask. Their masks are also cruelty free! If you haven't tried these yet, I highly recommend you do so, because its worth a try ;)

If you are interested in their masks, you can find these here.
