Empties #36

Hey loves :3

Another month, another empties post :) Let's just start!

Balea Kuniglicher Krunen-Kranich Duschgel - smelt really fruity, like mango. I did like it, but it was more of a summery scent,

Repurchase: It was limited edition.

Balea Viva Cuba Duschgel - this shower gel was definitely something special and I did enjoy it a lot. It was fresh and smelt like limes. Loved it and if I can find it again, I will totally buy it.

Repurchase: Another limited edition one.

Avon Senses Romantic Garden Of Eden Shower Gel - an average shower gel, nothing special.

Repurchase: Probably no.

Avon Naturals Cosy Vanilla & Sandalwood Shower Gel - this shower gel was a little bit more expensive, but I have to say it was really nice. It lasted for a while because it was quite thick in consistency. Nice scent for winter as well.

Repurchase: Maybe.

Balea Mizellen Reinigungs Tucher - if you follow my blog you'll know that I really like cleansing wipes when I'm too lazy to properly remove my makeup :P These are the best I've used so far because they're infused with micellar water.

Repurchase: Definitely.

MojDan Cleansing Wipes - these I buy from the store and they're nice. They do their job.

Repurchase: Yes.

Avon Advance Techniques 2 in 1 Shampoo & Conditioner - anti dandruff - I didn't like this one at all. It made my hair even greasier than before and didn't help with my dandruff at all,

Repurchase: No.

Avon Naturals Wild Berries And Pomegranate Creamy Yoghurt Scrub - it really smelled like yoghurt and it was nice. The scrub was gentle.

Repurchase: Maybe.

Avon Naturals Sparkling Passionfruit & Peony Shimmer Mist - I actually really enjoyed this mist. It contained tiny shimmer and it looked beautiful in summer on my tan skin, plus I liked the scent.

Repurchase: Maybe.

Jean Marc Giovanni Cote Deo Pafum - received this as a gift but I unfortunately didn't like the scent at all. I had this for years now and it also broke so it just had to go.

Repurchase: No.

Kiko Skin Tone Foundation - I really loved this foundation. Went back to search if I did a review on it and I somehow forgot to :( It looked really nice on my skin, felt very lightweight and it stayed on the whole day.

Repurchase: Maybe.

Avon Corrector - unfortunately I don't know the proper name of this because it erased from the packaging :D I have to say I hated this product. I tried to use it for many different things but it didn't work at all.

Repurchase: Never.

Oriflame Hypnotic Wonderlash Mascara - I actually had this mascara for about two years now. The mascara itself was really nice, separated my lashes nicely and it gave them volume. The best part about it was on the other side - silver coloured mascara. It was the best coloured mascara I ever used.

Repurchase: Unfortunately it was limited edition, however I do still have a gold version :P

Oriflame Visions Blue Mascara - this one looked pretty in the tube, but it didn't show up on my lashes at all.

Repurchase: No.

Oriflame Wonderlash Mascara - this mascara is really good, if you can get it, buy it for sure! It gives both - the length and the volume to your lashes. Loved it.

Repurchase: Yes I will in the future.

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara - tried it after it was so hyped everywhere. I do have to say you have to let it dry for a while because it's too wet when you buy it. But after that, it works like magic, my lashes really look like falsies.

Repurchase: I did already.

Skimono Hand Mask - I received this one in one of my LookFantastic beauty boxes. This was my first time trying hand mask. You can read my review here -> CLICK. I don't have very dry hands so I don't actually need these kind of masks, otherwise it felt amazing and would totally recommend if you have dry skin.

Repurchase: No.

J Luna Real Essence Collagen Sheet Mask - felt amazing, left my skin very soft and moisturized.

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

Avon Anew Reversalist Infinite Effects Sample - sample for the new Avon cream. You basically get 2 creams in one, you use on side for a week and then another side for a week as well. I did like these samples, I do however have some more to try it more and then I'll decide if it's worth buying. It's quite pricey though.

Purchase: Not sure yet.

Pilaten Black Head Pore Strip Sample - this sample I got in MyBeautybox. It was actually nice, but it hurt when I peeled it off.

Purchase: No.

Balea Multimasking - this was amazing. Multimasking is really in trend right now and here you get one part for t-zone and one for the cheeks. I did love the results!

Repurchase: Maybe.

Fango Delicato Active Mud Mask - I got this one in Lookfantastic box. I did like it, but one packaging gets you multiple uses and unfortunately mine was left open too much and it dried completely. 

Repurchase: Nop.

Oriflame Royal Velvet Firming Eye Contour Cream - I wrote a review here -> CLICK. It did absolutely nothing to my skin. Nothing at all.

Repurchase: Definitely not.

Mimitika Face Sunscreen - another product from LF box. I did really enjoy this cream, it was more thick and left my skin soft and created a nice base for makeup.

Repurchase: Maybe.

Essence Crystal Eyeliner - I didn't like this eyeliner at all. The tip doesn't pick up the glitter as it's suppose to. 

Repurchase: No.

Essence Brow Stylist - love this brow pencil from Essence.

Repurchase: Did already.

Balea Hibiskusblute Deodorant - I really like Balea deodorants. They work great for me.

Repurchase: Another scent.

Parodontax Classic Toothpaste - if you follow me you know Parodontax is my favourite toothpaste. The only one that helps me with bleeding gums. Love it!

Repurchase: Forever.

We came to the end guys. Hope you enjoyed :)


REVIEW: Balea Micellar Makeup Remover Pads

Hey guys :)

Today's review is about something new that Balea brought out. It's the micellar makeup remover pads. 

I bought these for around 2€ and you get 50 pads. These are oil free and are dermatologically tested. They're also vegan.

These would come handy for traveling, since they're small. I didn't sense any scent at all. I usually have quite heavy makeup, so I do have to use 3-4 pads for removing my makeup completely.

I analysed the ingredients, but there's nothing particulary dangerous, a few ingredients have a safety rating of 3 (of 9) on cosDNA but that's pretty much it.

The only thing that bothers me with these pads is that they're not very infused with micellar water. They're not as wet as I would like them to be which would to me mean I would use less pads for removing makeup. 

Otherwise they're really soft. I wouldn't recommend them to people that use heavy makeup, since you do have to use quite a lot of them. But for travelling these would be perfect, especially if you travel with plane!

Have you tried these pads already? Let me know what you think :)

BeautyBigBang Oval Brush*

Hello everyone!

I recently got two items from BeautyBigBang that I chose in echange for my honest review. They ship internationally and regularly restock their sold out items. They sell a variety of beauty products, everything from hair and makeup to nails. The first item I already wrote a review for here -> CLICK.

Today I'll review the second item I chose which is an oval brush,

I actually tried oval brushes before and since trying them, I'm not going back to the Beauty Blender. I love the fact that it really makes the foundation looks natural and not streaky at all.

The brush itself is very soft and nice. I did think it will be a bigger size though, but no worries, I'll use this one for concealer or creamy contour products.

It costs 5,06€ and you can buy it here -> CLICK.

The delivery takes up to 4 weeks, depending on where you live. They do offer Paypal as a payment method plus free shipping worldwide. 

I do have a 10% off code for you guys, it's KATJA10, if you want to get even more discount ;)

    BeautyBigBang Gel Eyeliner*

    Hey guys :)

    I recently got two items from BeautyBigBang that I chose in echange for my honest review. They ship internationally and regularly restock their sold out items. They sell a variety of beauty products, everything from hair and makeup to nails. 

    The first item I chose and will review for you today is a gel eyeliner.

    Even the packaging itself is pretty ;) It definitely caught my eye because of the unique and pretty design.

    There are 4 colours to choose from, I decided to get a standard, black one, but there's also a dark brown, light brown and a darker violet.

    The feather part is actually a brush, and I find it really nice. It's precise and you can get a very thin line if you prefer,

    On the other side there's a hidden gel cushion eyeliner. I never used cushion eyeliners before, but I have to say I do really enjoy it.

    The only thing this eyeliner lacks is pigmentation. I wish it was more pigmented with one swipe, more of a darker black, not so grey. But you can always layer it up of course.

    It costs 5,95€ but it's currently on sale for 4,24€ and you can buy it here -> CLICK.

    The delivery takes up to 4 weeks, depending on where you live. They do offer Paypal as a payment method plus free shipping worldwide. 

    I do have a 10% off code for you guys, it's KATJA10, if you want to get even more discount ;)
