Empties #42 - Part 1

Hey guys :)

Today's post is all about the products I managed to empty. There's a lot of them so I decided to break this post in two parts. The second part is coming in a few days.

Let's start :)


Avon Enchanted Collection Magical Kingdom - shower creme with jasmine & white musk. Loved the gentle scent which lingered for a while on the body.

Repurchase: Maybe.

Avon Cocktail Collection Fruity Margarita - another shower creme but with orange & peach scent. Loved it because it smelled really summery :)

Repurchase: I did already.


Farmasi Dr. C. Tuna Revitalizing Shampoo - with garlic & capixyl. I did like it for a while and my hair was nice but then I don't know if my hair got used to it or what, it did nothing special after some time.

Repurchase: Probably not.

Nivea Purifying  Micellar Shampoo - this is my go to shampoo for a while now. I love how it cleanses my hair and leaves it soft and nice. It also helps a little bit with dandruff.

Repurchase: I did yes.


Avon Mark. Magix Prep And Set Spray - I always use this setting spray. It does it's job and is very affordable.

Repurchase: Yes I did already.

Farmasi SkinTrends Micellar 3in1 Cleansing Water - this one however didn't convince me at all. I had hard time removing my makeup with it and the mascara was usual still a bit left on my lashes. Not impressed at all.

Repurchase: No.


Avon Senses Perfume Collection Romantic L'amour - shower creme with rose, iris and amber. It's inspired by perfume and I have to say it smelled quite nice.

Repurchase: Maybe.

Afrodita Cherry Cream Shower Gel - Afrodita is always a pleasure to have. Their shower gels are free of parabens and silicones. However, more on the expensive side as well. About 2€ for a bottle of 250ml shower gel. This was a very sweet scent, but nice.

Repurchase: Different scent.


FA Pink Passion Deodorant - nice scent that lingers for a while. Contains no aluminium which is always a plus for me.

Repurchase: Maybe.

Balea Breezy Touch Deodorant - love Balea deodorants and they're always on stock at my house :) This one was as usual a nice scent.

Repurchase: Different scent, yes.


Aveo Fruchte Traum Cremedusche - my first time trying Aveo shower gels and actually a pleasant experience. They're very cheap - about 0,50€ for a bottle of 300ml and very nice actually.

Repurchase: Different scent for sure in the future.

Aveo Himbeere Aprikose Pflegedusche - another one from Aveo. Smelled nice as well.

Repurchase: Another scent definitely.


Avon True Colour Calming Effects Illuminating Foundation - in shade Ivory, which is the lightest one in the range. I have a full review here -> CLICK. All in all a nice foundation for combination skin types.

Repurchase: Maybe.

Kiko City Filter Sunscreen Primer - I really enjoy Kiko products so I got this primer when it was on sale. Nice, but nothing special. I also wrote a full review here -> CLICK.

Repurchase: Probably no.


Avon Naturals Cocktail Collection Raspberry & Cassis Scented Spritz - I enjoy this kind of spritzs for summer because they're really lightweight and smell nice. This was perfect for summer :)

Repurchase: I have one at home still but coconut scented.

Avon Little Black Dress Weekend EDP 50ml - I love the standard Little black dress perfume from Avon. It's such a lovely classy fragrance, perfect for evening wear as well. This one is a little bit different though, It was launched in 2018 so it's fairly new. It's a floral fragrance which I usually don't like but this one did impress me somehow :) The top notes are lemon, mandarin orange and brazilian orange.

Repurchase: I might if I catch it on sale :)


Hope you enjoyed guys. The second part is coming soon :)

Kisses,

Popreal.com Newborn Clothes

Hello everyone!

Today's post is a little bit different since I'll talk about newborn clothes :) I recently found a website called Popreal.com. It's an online fashion boutique for newborn baby, toddler, kids clothing & accessories. They also offer matching outfits for mom and their kids as well as some maternity variety of clothing. The goal is to provide exclusive products that are high quality. These designs are not often found elsewhere. Rather than offering cartoon clothes and generic styles, a plethora of creativity went into designing kid’s clothes that are just as stylish as clothes for adults.

All packages are shipped from a warehouse location in China. The idea for the boutique originated in Hong Kong. The clothing sizes are based off height. For example, a child whose height is 55cm would require a size of 55. This equates to a 0-3 month outfit in U.S. sizes. The largest kid size is 155, which is an appropriate option for children 11 to 12 years old.

I'll show you some of my favourites from their newborn boy clothes selection :)

Boys Plaid Set

Suit Vest Set

Stripe Set


Such cute outfits :) I also browsed through the newborn baby girl clothes sets.

Ruffled Set

Bunny Set

Polka Dot Five Piece Set 

You definitely should check this site, such cute clothes for kids as well as mothers to be ;) They also offer 30% off coupon for every new customer.

Best,
Katja

LookFantastic November 2018 Beauty Box

Hey loves <3

Today's post is another one in the series of Lookfantastic beauty boxes :D I actually didn't order the box for a few months because I had too many products just piling up. 

And now they had an amazing deal for Black Friday if you signed up for a 6months or 12 months. I signed up for 12 months and got the first box for just 1,13€. Every other one will be 15,50€ which is amazing if you ask me. A regular price for the box is 20€ with free shipping worldwide - can't beat it.


The November's theme is Dark Wonder. We embrace the darker nights, the glitz of bonfire night and the crips colours of Autumn.


With every beauty box you get a free Elle magazine.


Let's jump into it :) 



1.  Laura Geller - Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in Gilded Honey


Enhance your natural glow for the party season with this baked highlighter that feels like a cream but applies like a sheer powder. Illuminate your face and body with golden colour that bestows your complexion with natural-looking radiance and luminosity.


2. Ren - Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream


Our skin is regularly exposed to environmental pullutants. Soothe and protect your skin with this gorgeous cream that trains your skin to be less sensitive whilst fighting against damage caused by free radicals and environmental aggressors.


3. Bubble T - Lookfantastic Dark Wonder Bath Bomb


Limited edition Bubble T Bath Bomb is back! This luxury bath bomb is infused with Acai Berry and Hibiscus, filling your bath with colour and a fragrance to stimulate the senses. Get ready to feel rejuvenated and refreshed, with the added bonus of super soft, hydrated skin.


4. Mellow - Precision Pen Eyeliner


Get striking eyes for every occasion! This long lasting super black formula creates the thinnest or thickest winged liner in one sweep, and gives eyes a bolder look without having to try too hard.


5. Elemis - Papaya Enzyme Peel


This gentle exfoliator will make your complexion appear smoother and brighter by dissolving dead skin cells without rubbing, making it perfect for delicate skin as it also gives anti-oxidant and free radical protection. Your skin will be treated with seaweed actives and vitamin E, leaving you with a smooth, moisturised and remineralised skin.


6. Contour Cosmetics - Matte Liquid Lipstick


This matte, kiss-proof liquid lipstick is designed to last all day long. The pretty nude pink shade is perfect for an everyday look with a soft finish that doesn't dry out the lips. Encased in luxurious rose gold packaging, this highly pigmented liquid lipstick is a must-have in your make up bag.

And we came to the end :) I tried the liquid lipstick already, love the colour but it started flaking really bad after a few hours. Laura Geller's baked illuminator is really amazing and Ren's day cream also!

Hope you enjoyed, I'm waiting for my December box already :) Can't wait to show it to you.

Happy Sunday,
Katja
