Review: Avril Le Crayon Yeux | Bronze Culvré

Hi loves! Today I have for you guys Avril Le Crayon Yeux in shade Bronze Culvré (3 EUR). I got it in one of the Style Tone boxes and Avril products have 100% natural origins ingredients.

The liner is a pencil, which I do need to sharpen. I would like it more, if it would be twist up, but I can't complain considering the price point. The formula of the shadow is long lasting, pigmented and creamy. I have mostly used it on the lower waterline. Its suited for sensitive eyes and their products are not tested on animals.

The shade Bronze Culvré is a beautiful deep bronze, which looks gorgeous paired with a nude smokey eye. Its also easy to apply it and it glides on like a dream, and it is easy to smudge out. 

The overall staying power is good. I would reapply it, if I would go out with friends in the evening, for more fresh look. Its a great everyday liner, which hasn't irritated my eyes and I have sensitive eyes. So I'm happy I can use it, because the shade of it is just beautiful. If you are interested in it, you can check it out here.

Have you tried any of their products before?

Review: Vestige Verdant Bioactive Organic Mask

Hi loves! Hope you are all doing well :) From now on I'll post on Fridays around 4pm and today's post is on Vestige Verdant Bioactive Organic Mask (200ml, 49 EUR). 

The mask comes in plastic jar and it is more ticker formula. I used a clean flat foundation brush to take out the product and apply it on my cleansed skin. The mask claims to improve skin tone, stimulates the circulation, heals allergic or hypersensitive skin, and reduces acne. 

This mask is organic and all the ingredients used in it are purely. The mask contains peat from Estonia and the peat is molecular level refined, which make it a rejuvenating face mask.

I apply  thick layer (1-3 mm) of the mask on cleansed skin and keep it on max 5 minutes, but it can be on up to 10 minutes. After that I remove the mask and my skin is left clean and my pores are so much cleaner. The only thing bothering me is that it drys my skin out so much (and I have oily skin). If I keep it on more then 5 minutes my skin get irritated. Maybe it will work better when the weather is warmer, but at the moment I feel like it sucks out all the moisture with the dirt. Because of that I don't use this mask too often. I take it out on days when I feel my skin needs to be deep cleansed and that it does it well.

Down below you can see the before (left side) and after (right side) picture. My pores are noticeable cleaner and look much better. It also made skin so smooth. I think any other mask hasn't made my skin so soft before. 

I do like, the mask is organic and all natural, but I wish the mask wouldn't suck the life out of my skin. It does give great results regarding my pores and how smooth it makes my skin feel. Also I don't like the plastic packaging. I feel with the high price tag the packaging should be better. So I have mixed feelings about this masks and I'm not sure I would buy it again, maybe in the future.

Which is your favorite natural mask?

Review: Aïcha Pure Organic Extra Virgin Argan Oil

Hi loves! This week I have for you guys amazing product which can be used so many ways and I had it with me when I was in Rome. I'm talking about Aïcha Pure Organic Extra Virgin Argan Oil (50ml, 34.95 EUR).

The packaging as usual is beautiful and stunning! It also comes with a pump, which makes it super easy to use and it pumps out just right amount of product. I love I can use it on my hair, hydrate my skin and it also melts away all my makeup. 

Its 100% extra virgin argan oil and sinks into the skin fast and the formula of it is more to the runny side. I like to use it mostly to remove my eye makeup, which is stubborn and doesn't come off easily, specially when I wear smudge proof liner. I like how soft and hydrated my eye area feels after using it. Its also great to moisturize my skin. I like to use it on my hands and legs when I need extra hydration boost.

Its also great to use on hair. It instantly hydrates the hair and tames the frizz, which is constant battle for me. It also gives my hair lovely shine.

I got it as part of my birthday gift from my mom and this oil has been wonderful! Its specially great to have with me when traveling. I love how fast it sinks into the skin and I can use it so many ways.

If you are interested I'll link the magical oil here and they do ship worldwide.

What do you think of beauty oils?

Review: Ontic Minerals Mineral Blush | P04 Girls Powder!

Hi loves! I have been wearing Ontic Minerals Mineral Blush in P04 Girls Powder! non stop (3g, 18.95 EUR). I like to wear it on its own and it looks gorgeous also mixed with other blushes ;) All together there is 6 different shades available on their page, which I'll link here.

The blush comes in a jar with a sifter, which makes applying it easier and also less messy. There is no way to close the sifter, so its definetly not ideal for traveling. Every time I have taken my loose powder with me when traveling it has been a mess. I wish companies would but something in it to close the sifter, so I could bring some of my favorite loose powders with me when traveling.

The blush is formulated with natural minerals and it doesn't contain any talc or other bad ingredients like parabens, mineral oils, gluten, fragrance, syntactical colorants, nanoparticles and phthalates. The blush is suitable for all skin types and the formula is vegan.

The formula of it feels very fine to the touch. It is richly pigmented and blends out like a dream. I find this blush to be interesting, because the shade can be build up when starting with light hand. I usually start that way when I wear it with other blushes. I like to combine it with matte blushes. Other times I go all out and it gives me light pink cheeks with the most gorgeous glow to it. Thats also why I like to mix it with my other blushes. It just looks so beautiful! 

I find it to be perfect shade for pale skin tone beauties. I feel with this blush I can never go over bored and even if I end up applying too much it still looks beautiful. I never have had a clown moment with it this blush. It just makes me want try out more from them.  

Another thing I like about this beauty is the finish. Its not shimmery and its not matte either. Is between the two and it just has this beautiful sheen to it. I can't explain it very well, but its the prettiest finish ever. I'm completely obsessed with it :)

When I go back to Estonia I definetly will add few more of their blushes in my collection and maybe some eye shadows as well. I do love mineral eye shadows. I feel in generally mineral makeup feels and looks better on my skin.

If you are interested in this beauty you can check it out on their page, which I'll link here.

Do you like mineral makeup?

Review: Lekkerineenpotje Strawberry & Lemon Lip Scrub

Hi loves! Today I have something great for you and you can say its a must have item this season, if you are fan of matte lipsticks ;) Its Lekkerineenpotje Strawberry & Lemon Lip Scrub (15ml, 6.95 EUR), which is natural and vegan.

The scrub comes in a little tin and it contains just enough product before it goes bad. That what happens with the Lush lip scrub. I guess I should scrub my lips more often.

The lip scrub is with granulated organic sugar and also contains vitamin E. It has a lovely lemon scent, which is so fresh and absolutely delicious :)

I like to use it in the mornings before I do my makeup. Its perfect when my lips are chipped. It makes my lips smooth and soft. I apply bit of the product on wet lips and massage my lips with it. I personally feel like my lips are slightly bigger when I use it, but you can see the before and after picture down below.

I'm so happy I got it in Style Tone box and to be honest I can't wait to try more from the brand. They have very yummy looking body scrubs available :D If you are interested in this lip scrub you can check it out here.

Which is your favorite lip scrub?

Review: Gilda Cosmetic 24H Cream

Hi loves! Today I have for you guys Gilda Cosmetic 24H Cream (50ml). It comes in airless bottle and has a pump. I love skincare items and really all beauty products which comes with a pump.

The ingredients are 90%-100% natural in their products. Its formulated with Allantion and Bisabolol, which sooth the skin and and calm it. Vitamin E and B5 nourishes the skin and strengthens the skin barrier and also provides protection. Mediterranean Scualane and Tamarind extract, which provide hydration through out the day. The formula doesn't contain any fragrance, so all beauties can use it.

It can be used as day cram and night cream. I have been using it mornings and evenings after toner and serum. The formula of it feels light weight and it sinks into the skin fast, leaving it matte looking, but soft and hydrated at the same time.

I have used up most of the cream, I think I have quarter left. I do like the formula and how fast it sinks in and also it doesn't leave my skin creasy. I got it in on of the Style Tone boxes, so I'm not sure where I could purchase it. Its available on their web shop, but its all in Swedish and the price of the cream is around 58 EUR. I think they do ship to other countries. If you want you can check out the English page here. You can find the product description there and full list of ingredients. For purchase you can check out their other page here, which is in Swedish.

What moisturizer do you use at them moment?
