REVIEW: Essence "Wood You Love Me?" TE - Eye Sheet Mask

Hey guys!

Today I have another review of a sheet mask for you. This one was a limited edition from Essence called Wood You Love me?. I actually bought both - a full face sheet mask and this one which is an eye sheet mask.

Of course the thing that intrigued me was the design :D The instructions how to use it are on the back and also the ingredient list.


Step 1: First clean your face thoroughly and then unfold the pre-moistened mask.

Step 2: Apply the mask to your face (or eye area) and smooth it with your fingertips. Leave the mask for 15 minutes.

Step 3: Carefully remove the mask. Use your fingertips to massage the excess lotion into the skin. Then apply skin care products, as you always do. The mask is not reusable.



The formula of this eye mask (a little fox!) Should refresh and brighten the skin around the eyes, as if you had 10 hours of sleep. I find the mask very nice. It contains a lot of lotion, so I could even massage the rest of my face with it.

I really like this mask from Essence, partly because of the amount of lotion. Unfortunately it was a limited edition. They do however cost a bit more than Balea ones - 1.99€.



Hope you enjoyed!

Happy Sunday<3

Empties #41

Hey guys!

Another empties post for you today, I haven't written one since the end of June, so this has been accumulating for two months already. I did manage to use up a good amount of products ;)

Let's start!



Avon Senses Anti-Stress Shower Gel - I bought this one on sale. An average shower gel, nothing special.

Repurchase: I wouldn't buy the same scent.


Avon Senses Cocktail collection Kir Royale Shower Gel - this is a new line of raspberry & cassis that Avon introduced. I bought myself this shower gel and I have to say I liked the scent.

Repurchase: Maybe if it's on sale.



Avon Senses Joyful Tropics Shower Creme - oh this was a nice scent, perfect for summer with papaya and peach. Loved it.

Repurchase: Maybe.


Subrina Cherry Blossom Shower Gel - my all time favourite shower gel. Smells so nice, fresh of cherry blossoms and lingers on my skin for a while. Love this one and it was repurchased many many times.

Repurchase: Yes!



Nivea Micellar Shampoo - for normal to greasy hair. The fact that it has 0% silicones is very nice. I think this one worked great wiht my hair. I did repurchase it a couple of times already, so that tells something, I 've been impressed so far. I do have some different shampoos right now to try out, but I think this one will get repurchased in the future for sure!

Repurchase: Definitely in the future.



Balea Mizellen Reinigungs Tucher - one of them was a limited edition. I really like these wipes for the times when I'm too lazy to properly remove my makeup (which is 90% of the time unfortunately :D). They do the job great plus they're very affordable.

Repurchase: For sure.



Avon Senses Calming Tuscany Shower Creme - oh god I hated this scent with all of my heart. Hate is a strong word but I really, really didn't like it (get the reference :D). My boyfriend didn't mind it though, so you may like it. It has strong scent of olives. My first shower gel from Avon that I really didn't like at all :D 

Repurchase: No.



Avon Senses Peaceful Reflection Shower Creme - this one on the other hand is my favourite from Avon :D Smells really nice, gentle and not too strong. It's oriental orchid and raspberry.

Repurchase: Yes!



Balea Cocos/Ananas Shower Gel - limited edition, another one of those summery scents. I enjoyed this one as well, really nice.

Repurchase: It was LE.


Balea Avocuddle & Strawberry Kiss Duschgel - such a cute packaging right ;) Totally got me of course :D Enjoyed the scent as well ;)

Repurchase: Another LE.


Farmasi Summer Cocolo Body Wash - this one was a part of the whole coconut collection from Farmasi. Not your usual coconut scent, this one is a bit different since it's more "natural". I did like it, but my boyfriend hated it :D

Repurchase: No, limited edition.


Avon Care Coconut Oil Body Wash - oh if you haven't noticed yet, I love everything coconuty :D Coconut must be my favourite with all things. This body wash I took with us to seaside and I really loved it. It's perfect for summer.

Repurchase: Maybe.



Balea Melone Creme Seife - basically a hand soap. I usually buy them from Balea because they're affordable and do the job just fine. This one was a melone scent, perfect for summer.

Repurchase: Not this scent.


Balea Men Surfers Paradise Duschgel - I usually don't buy shower gels especially for my boyfriend but this one really smelled nice. At the end I showered with it as well because it was amazing :D

Repurchase: I might.



Balea Sweet Berry Rasiergel - I always buy shaving creams from Balea because they always have different, amazing scents and this one wasn't an exception.

Repurchase: Different scent.


Balea Spray-On Body Lotion  - loved this one because of the easy application. I'm usually pretty lazy with my body lotions, but because this was so easy to apply I did manage to use it up :D

Repurchase: I did buy another one yes.



Dvorec Trebnik Funky Orange Shampoo  - Unfortunately I wasn't a big fan. I felt like my hair didn't get clean enough.. My boyfriend used it up instead.

Repurchase: No.


FA Magic Shower Gel - pretty packaging and nice scent that lingered on my skin for a while.

Repurchase: Maybe if it's on sale.



Avon FootWorks Deodorising Foot And Shoe Spray - lavender scented. I like this spray for shoes, it's really nice especially for summer.

Repurchase: I did already.


Afrodita Suncare Sunscreen Milk SPF20 - my first time buying sunscreen from Afrodita. It's quite expensive but it did the job. I think it was better than the Avon's cream than we had last year with us on holidays.

Repurchase: Not sure, maybe.



Essence Nail Art Twins & Nail Art- I loved this glittery polish so much. Unfortunately it dried up because it's quite old :D. The nail art polish I wasn't a big fan of, it also dried up.

Repurchase: Not sold anymore.


Essence Colour & Go Polishes - I'm sorry I don't know the names of these two. I like Essence nail polishes and these two were good as well.

Repurchase: No.



Images Deep Sea Moisturizing Mask - wrote a review here ->CLICK. Didn't see results.

Repurchase: No.


Balea Pflege-Kick Tuch Maske - A decent mask for great price.

Repurchase: No, I like to try different sheet masks.



Merci Handy Hand Cleansing Gel - a nice cleansing gel for your handbag. I got mine in LF box.

Repurchase: No.


Balea Hygiene-Handgel - after Merci Handy I found this one in DM which claims it removes 99% of bacteria. I liked this one as well, kept it at my office desk.

Repurchase: I actually bought another but with coconut scent :P



Real Chemistry Enviromental Rescue Essential Day Cream - it did give me a nice glow as it claims. I liked it, but wasn't a big fan. It performed average.

Repurchase: Probably no.


Nuxe Moisturizing Cream - nice cream. I got it in LF box as well. I think Nuxe is too pricey for what it actually is.

Repurchase: No.


Gatineau Serum - I didn't notice any difference, but this was honestly a small sample of the serum so maybe if I used it more...

Repurchase: Maybe some samples.



Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation - special foundation, unfortunately a bit more expensive than my usual foundations :D I did like how it looked on the skin, like you have nothing on. Very natural.

Repurchase: Maybe.


Catrice Even Skin Tone Foundation - this one was more of a thick and heavier foundation but also looked very nice on the skin, especially applied with a wet beauty blender.

Repurchase: I might in the future.



Elf Blush - an orange toned blush with little gold shimmer in it. Looked really nice especially in the summer but it's time to go since it's pretty old ;)

Repurchase: No.


Avon Little Black Dress EDP - my favourite scent from Avon. I repuchased it a few times already. It's such a classic scent, very suitable for an evening outing. It's soft and inoffensive plus it stays on me for a while.

Repurchase: Definitely in the future!



Balea Beauty Therapy Tagescreme - a sample which was included with makeup wipes. As far as I could test it it was nice :)

Purchase: No.


Omorovicza Balancing Moisturiser - another product from LF box. It was a light cream, but kept my skin hydrated through the day and it worked nice under makeup as a primer.

Repurchase: Probably no, just because I like to try different ones.


Polaar Hand Cream - my hands are not usually dry but I still use hand cream almost every day. This one was nice, a bit thicker in texture.

Repurchase: No.



Monu Spa Warming Ginger Bath & Body Oil - I used it as a body oil. My boyfriend and I both loved the scent which was a mixture of ginger, lemongrass and orange. So fresh!

Repurchase: Maybe.


Oriflame Anchor Soap Bar - perfect for summer since it was shaped like an anchor :D

Repurchase: Limited edition.



Ciate Wonderwand Mascara - another product I got in LF box. Ciate is known for their nail polishes, but I really liked this mascara. It had drier formula which I prefer. It was easy to layer.

Repurchase: Maybe.


Loreal Paradise Extatic Mascara - bought it for a review when it first came out, but then I never found the time to write it. I really liked this one as well, but the only downside is it dries so freaking fast! For the price which is around 14€ it dries too soon unfortunately.

Repurchase: I might if it's on sale.


Essence Brow Designer - I buy my pencil brow from Essence. It's affordable and does the job.

Repurchase: Yes.


And that's the end :D Finally, there's quite a lot of products :D
Happy Sunday <3
