(1) Garnier Body Urea Moisturizer
I love this moisturizer and buy them for years repeatedly after . For me, this is the only cream that is rich and cares my skin all day. Especially in winter, when my skin is very dry.
I’ll buy again.

(2) Isana Intensiv Lip Balm
A very effective lip balm. Cares intensively and leaves a nice feeling on the lips. It is also very cheap ! In lip care I remain rare in one. I like trying out new.
I’ll not but again.

(3) Essence Lash Princess Mascara
I think this Mascara is good for the small price . But it has not fully convinced me. There are better ones.
I’ll not buy again.

(4) Maybelline Instant Anti-Age Concealer
A great concealer! Also, the sponge is convenient , although I do not think it’s very hygienic. Too bad that there are only 2 shades.
I’ll not buy again.

(5) L’Oreal Super Liner Eyeliner
My absolute favorite Eyeliner. It can be precisely applied , has a strong color and lasts all day .
I’ll buy again.

(6) Bebe Young Care  Cleaning Wipes
These wipes clean not only good , but also nourish the skin . The skin feels afterwards very soft and purified .
I’ll buy again.

#Lacquered 3 – Essie Petal Pushers

IMG_1959

Hello my beauties,

For those who could not acquire Pedal Pushers during the LE, good news: Pedal Pushers is now in the Essie standard range. I was so happy!

price: 7,95 €

Although this color is not very spring-like, it is something very special. At first glance it appears very greyish and inconspicuous. In order, however, you notice the color is a mixture of gray and blue. I would describe it as pigeon grey blue – very elegant and delicate, sometimes more grey, sometimes more bluish.

I am continually impressed by the Essie – brushes! The width is perfect, the brush fans out pleasant and super rounded. If I do my best I can paint my nails easily with a brush stroke!

A color that fits in my opinion to many outfits. Uncomplicated but very chic, suitable for any occasion.

My Skincare Routine

IMG_1777

Hello my beauties,

Today’s post is about skin care. Who does not dream of a flawless skin?

First of all it is very important to emphasize that care products alone are not enough to get a beautiful, radiant skin. Much more important is a balanced diet, fresh air and sport. Personally, I have a mixed skin and have repeatedly impurities. This means that my skin in the T-Zone is relatively oily and I get there impurities, the rest of the face is normal to dry.

IMG_1750

I started this year with a major change in topic skin care. I am working intensively with constituents and try to irritate my skin as little as possible. These products have changed my skin Routine:

(1) Clinique Take The Day Off
A Cleansing Balm oil-based is pretty much the most mild one, which allows you to clean the face and remove makeup. Namely it does not contain irritating substances such as surfactants, alcohol, etc. A Cleansing Balm works by being applied to the dry face, rubbed with wet hands and taken off with lukewarm water.

IMG_1744

(2) Clarisonic Mia 2
The Clarisonic Mia2 is a highly effective cleaning brush, which cleans the skin gently and intensively. After removing make-up with my cleansing balm (Clinique) I distribute a little bit of the enclosed cleansing gel from Clarisonic in the moistened face. Then I massage my skin for 1 minute. After one minute, the Clarisonic turns off by itself. The skin feels clean and soft. I use the Clarisonic 2 times a week.

IMG_1770

(3) Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Gel
A chemical peel removes dead skin cells , without irritating so much the skin surface as it does a mechanical peeling because of the small particles . It works with acids. BHA peels are especially suitable for blemished skin, because they can get inside the pore and work so deep into the pores. Moreover, salicylic acid is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory. I apply the peel for about 30 minutes after cleansing.

IMG_1753

(4) Paula’s Choice Skin Balancing Ultra-Sheer Daily-Defense
If you use a chemical peel , you should definitely use a day cream with sun protection factor , as BHA and AHA can extremely increase the sensitivity to the sun skin. It is very light, easy to apply and moisturizes well. Suitable for normal skin, combination skin and oily Skin.

IMG_1752

(5) Sebamed Anti-Ageing Eye Cream
From Sebamed Eye Cream I had heard a lot of good opinions. The alcohol is actually relatively far back in the contents. And I must say that I find the cream really great. It doesn’t burn, is rich and leaves a nice feeling on the skin.

Clarisonic Mia 2

IMG_1757

Good morning beauties,

In today’s post, a small Review of the facial cleansing brush Clarisonic Mia 2. I got it for Christmas this year and want to share my experience with you now.

Price
The Clarisonic Mia can be easily ordered online by Douglas for 149,99 €.

IMG_1255

The package includes

  • Facial cleansing brush Clarisonic
  • charger
  • Refreshing Gel Cleanser (30 ml)
  • Brush cover for transportIMG_1756

What it promises
 „The Clarisonic Mia2 is a highly effective cleaning brush, whereby the skin can be gently intensively cleaned. In conventional cleaning equipment the brush rotates in only one direction, Clarisonic is different: Here the oscillating brush head, moves with more than 300 cycles per second back and forth and so uses the natural elasticity of the skin. In this way, up to 6 times more makeup can be removed than with a manual cleaning. Facial care products can be much better absorbed by the skin. The result: a pore-deep pure skin that radiates. „

(Source: Douglas)

How do I use Mia?
I wet my face and spread some cleanser all over my face. At the moment I use the Clarisonic original Cleansing gel. Then I turn on the Mia and brush my face. The manufacturer suggest to go gently with the brush in a circular motion over your face 20 seconds for the front , 20 seconds for the nose and chin , and 10 seconds for the cheeks . This gives a total of 60 seconds, after the Mia turns off automatically.

IMG_1765

Different brush heads
Depending on your skin, there are various brush heads. Personally, I still use the standard brush suitable for sensitive and normal skin types.

  • Normal
  • Sensitive
  • Delicate
  • Deep Pore
  • AcneIMG_1766

Battery / Cleaning / Maintenance
I recharge my Clarisonic Mia 2 approximately every 2 weeks. For cleaning, it is proposed to wash the brush head every few days with warm water, soap or cleansing gel. In addition, it is advisable to renew the brush head every 3 months. When the battery is empty, I recharge the Mia overnight and until the next application it is running as usual.

My conclusion
I just love this brush! And I could not imagine my facial cleansing without the Mia, now. My skin has really changed for the better. Impurities occur rarely, the skin feels clean and smooth and it improves the overall appearance of the skin. At first I was worried it might irritate my sensitive combination skin but it’s so gentle to all skin types that I really can recommend. The only downside for me is the high price for changing the brush heads every 3 months (39,99 €).

IMG_1574

The ASTOR Perfect Stay Fabulous Lipsticks are an absolute must-have in my cosmetic bag for me. Convince me both visually and by its formulation with rich oils and the color intensity. Only two of the total of 13 colors habe personally failed but it doesn’t mean, of course, that you might not like them. Check out the entire range of colors! You will find certainly your favorite among the beautiful ASTOR Perfect Stay Fabulous Lipsticks.

A small drawback, however, there – the lipsticks do not run out, but blurring fast. You should not kiss your boy too wild when you carry one of the ASTOR Perfect Stay Fabulous Lipsticks. 🙂 After drinking and eating the lipstick should be tightened again.

My favorites:

At the high selection , it was really hard to find a favorite.

But who knows me longer, know that my heart beats faster for dark lips . 🙂
That’s why my favorites  are #300 Fancy and #503 Fiction Red.

#Lacquered 2 – Manhattan Last & Shine 530 Party Princess

IMG_0985
Glitter polish with silver and a bright shade of red. You rarely see this Color.

price: 3,49 €
content: 10 ml

Applying

The paint has a broad brush, which makes the job without any problems. I think the square lid fits comfortably in your hand, I had a good grip by painting.

IMG_0968

Opacity

The nail polish I tested was in two layers covering. Especially the paints with metallic finish needs a second layer. So opacity: okay.

Durability

With a good topcoat the nail polish holds for five days. I would say the durability corresponds to other drug store nail polishes such as p2, Essence. So durability: okay.

IMG_0992

Conclusion

I ‚m going definitely to buy more of the coatings, because the color choice is really very big. Especially in the points order & price the nail polish convinced me.

How do you find this color? Have you already tried Manhattans new nail polishes?
