Review: Darphin Hydrating Kiwi Mask

Hi loves! How are you? I'm super excited to share with you Darphin Hydrating Kiwi Mask (75ml, £37.00). The mask comes in a white squeeze tube and has a very clean packaging. It reminds me medicine for my skin.  

This mask is for anyone who has dry skin. It instantly hydrates the skin and promises to leave it radiant and refreshed. It has a wonderful fruity scent to it. It smells good enough to eat! The formula contains extract of kiwi, mango and pomegranate. 92% of the ingredients are from natural origins. Its formulated without parabens, mineral oils, phthalates and formaldehyde. 

The mask texture is like a lotion and it's white. I like to do this mask in the mornings, because its 5 minute mask. Its perfect to give my skin radians and hydration before I start my day, specially now when the weather is so much colder. I'm already familiar with the brand and the first time I tried the mask when I was in beauty salon and it was love from first try.

How to use:
It can be used as often as you want. Apply thick layer on clean skin and keep it on 3 to 5 minutes. Then you can remove it with tissue.

Ingredients: Water\Aqua\Eau Polysorbate 60 Dimethicone Glycerin Hordeum Distichon (Barley) Extract\Extrait D'Orge A Deux Rangs Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) Santalum Album (Sandalwood) Extract Phellodendron Amurense Bark Extract Actinidia Chinensis (Kiwi) Fruit Extract Mangifera Indica (Mango) Fruit Extract Imperata Cylindrica Root Extract Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Extract Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer Tridecyl Trimellitate Tridecyl Stearate Tocopheryl Acetate Sorbitan Stearate Caprylyl Glycol Dipentaerythrityl Hexacaprylate/Hexacaprate Dimethiconol Hexylene Glycol Sodium Carbomer Fragrance (Parfum) Butylphenyl Methylpropional Hydroxyisohexyl 3-Cyclohexene Carboxaldehyde Hexyl Cinnamal Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone Limonene Disodium Edta Phenoxyethanol Chlorphenesin

Down below you can see the before and after picture. This mask is the perfect morning mask for me. It's fast and gives me results. My skin feels after the mask hydrated, brighter and also plumper.

I'm so happy I ended up getting this mask! It makes my skin look and feel so soft. I do wanna pick up more skincare from the brand, but they are more pricey. I don't mind paying bit more for a good skincare, which gives me results.

Have you tried any of their skincare before?

Review: Mulac Hairlab

Hi loves! Long time no see :) I hope form now on I'm able to blog more often on this blog. This year I tried out first time Mulac Cosmetics. Its an Italian brand established on April 2014 by Cindy, who is a beauty influencer in Italy. Most of their products have 90% natural ingredients.

I have 3 items from their Hairlab: Clean Berry 10 (250ml, €8.90), Creme Berry 10 (200ml, €13.90) and Huileberry 10 (100ml, €19.90).

Clean Berry 10 (link) is intensive nourishing shampoo and it doesn't contain any silicons. Its formulated with 10 oils, which provide nourishment to the hair. It helps to moisturize the hair fibers in depth and makes the hair soft and shin.

I do like this shampoo a lot. It makes my hair so soft and I can really feel and see its hydrated, specially when I had long hair. 

The only issue I have with this product is the packaging. I do like the bottle and the label. It all looks beautiful and well made, but this product doesn't have a pump. I have to pour it out from the bottle and I find it extremely annoying. I always end up pouring out too much and waisting some of the product. I would love it, if it came with a pump. It would make it more user friendly.
Creme Berry 10 (link) is tick nourishing hair mask, which come in a tub and has the same lilac packaging as the rest of the line has. I don't mind too much this type of packaging, because the product is thicker and its easy to scoop out the right amount of product.

This is also formulated with out any silicons and it gives to the hair strength and elasticity. Also helps to fight agains frizz.

I use this treatment in towel dry hair and when I had long hair I applied it generously. Now days I have short hair and I use way less product. I leave it in for few minutes and then rinse it out and my hair is the softest thing ever. There is way less frizz and my hair is so much easier to manage.

I think I haven't mentioned, but this hair range smells so good and delicious.

Huileberry 10 (link) comes in gorgeous glass bottle and has a dropper. It looks so luxe! This is a blend of 10 natural oils, which nourish, repair and protect the hair fibers. Before I had long hair, which was a month ago, I used this product twice a day. I have natural dry hair, so I need the hydration, plus my hair was and still is color treated. I do have short hair, but I still time to time add it in my hair and it makes it so soft.

I used to use 3 drops one side and 3 drops on other side. It made  my long hair frizz free, easy to comb, soft and added shine to it. Now I use 3 drops all together and I use it in my wet hair. It can be used in dry or wet hair, as you prefer. Another perk at least for me about this item is the scent. It smells so good and it makes your hair smell so good. I didn't noticed it before, till my mom dried it and when she walked past me I noticed the scent. 

I'm so happy I ended up getting this hair range. I still have yet to try the dry shampoo from the range. But I think its going to be as amazing as rest of the products. You can check the range out for yourself here.

Have you tried Mulac before?

Review: Hoia Coffee & Peppermint Bodyscrub

Hi loves! Today I have something amazing to share with you! Its Hoia Coffee & Peppermint Bodyscrub (200ml, €12.90), which is 100% natural and made in Estonia.

This body scrub is with peppermint, which gives the skin cooling sensation. I also like the mixed scent of coffee and peppermint. The formula contains shea butter and coconut butter, which leaves the skin hydrated and nourished.

This body scrub is hands down my favorite and the best I have ever tried in my life. It removes all the dead skin cells and makes my skin feel so smooth and soft. It also makes epilation easier, because it gets all the ingrown hairs out, which sometimes can happen. 

I also love the fact that coffee helps to fight against cellulite. Every bit helps right girls ;)

IngredientsSucrose, Coffee Arabica Beans, Butyrospermun Parkii Butter (sheavõi), Cocos Nucifera Oil (kookosrasv), Mentha Piperita Leaf Oil (piparmündi eeterlik õli), *Limonene. *Sisaldub looduslikult sidrunheina eeterlikus õlis.

I have tried few of their other things and I have been loving everything so far. Next I do wanna try some skincare items from them. If you are in Estonia I highly recommend trying out this brand. Its so amazing and all their items are natural. You can find this mega amazing body scrub here.

Which is your favorite natural beauty brand?

Review: Natura Siberica -30˚C Cold Mask

Hi loves! I had another brake with this blog, but I'm back for now and today's post is on Natura Siberica -30˚C Cold Mask (50ml). Its a sculpting face mask.

The mask comes in a frosted plastic jar. It has a silver cap on it and on the side of the jar is the brands logo and the product name. It has very clean and minimalistic style packaging, which I like. I would have liked it to be in a squeeze tube, but the formula is too thick  for that.

This mask helps against early aging, smooths and firms the skin. It also provides sculpting effect. At the same time it provides nourishment to the skin. My skin always feels super soft after using it.

Key ingredients:
  • Black caviar extract - is a great source of proteins, amino acids, minerals and vitamins. It increases skins renewal, collagen and elastin production. Also provides strong antioxidant protection. That all helps the skin look smoother and younger.
  • Organic peppermint oil - has strong toning effect and moisturizing properties. 
  • Organic snow cladonia extract - helps to slow down the aging processes.

I find this mask does wonders for my skin. It makes my skin plump, firmer and soft. It makes my overall complexion look brighter and more radiant. Down below you can see the before and after picture.

I'm very happy with this mask and its going to be something I definetly repurchase once this one runs out. I picked mine up on Rimi (from Estonia). Its also available on Amazon (link), if you are interested.

Review: Bellapierre Contour & Highlight Cream Palette

Hi loves! Today I have for you Bellapierre Contour & Highlight Cream Palette (24g). The palette comes in cardboard packaging and closes magnetically. Inside there is a mirror and 6 cream shade for highlighting and contouring. It also comes step by step instruction how to highlight & contour your face. Its great they added it, so beginners can use this palette too. You can also remove the pans from the palette and add to empty magnetic palette for travel.

The formula of the cream highlighters and contouring shades feel cream and they are pigmented. I like to use my fingers to apply these and blend out with a puffing brush. These blend easily into the skin and look seamless. Its so easy to use and I find cream contour is easier to use then powders. Its more forgiving and great for beginners. Its also faster and thats why I like to use it.
On the left you can see all of the shades swatched. My highlighting shade is Marzipan. I know its more yellow, but it somehow works very well with my skin tone and brightens very thing up. My cotnouring shade is the darkest Ganache. Its perfect to carve out my cheek bones and add that natural looking shadow. These are the main shades I use, but I can use the other darker shades to bronze up my complexion. I like I can find a way to use almost all the shades.

Ingredients: Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Cera Alba (Beeswax), Magnesium Carbonate, Kaolin, Candelilla Cera (Candelilla Wax), Copernicia Cerifera Cera(Carnauba Wax), Simmondsia Chinensis(Jojoba) Seed oil, Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Lonicera Japonica (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Silica, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin A), [+/- Mica (CI 77091), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI77499)].

I'm very happy with this palette. I got it from a beauty subscription box and I'm so happy I did. Its wonderful product and I love how easy it is to work with these. If you are interested and based in the Netherlands, you can find it here. Rest of the world can check it out down below ;)

Do you like cream contouring?

Review: Lumi Refreshing Birch Mist

Hi loves! Sorry for being late with this week's post. Today I wanna share with you Lumi Refreshing Birch Mist (100ml, 35.90€). This face mist is made with natural, steam-distilled birch buds from Estonia. It has birch scent, which is natural. This can be used a cleansing toner, a refreshing mist in the evenings or use it through out the day to refresh the skin. This fits all skin types, is fragrance free and with balanced pH.

This face mist comes in a dark glass bottle and has a sprayer, which prays out lovely even mist. The outside packaging is minimalistic like all their products. It feels like medicine for my skin.

How to use:
  • Cleansing: apply some of it on a cotton pad and use it as toner. It refreshes the skin and leaves it hydrated and clean.
  • Refresh: mist it directly on the face. I love the birch scent it has. It reminds me home and forest. It leaves my skin cooled and refreshed.

Ingredients: Betula alba (birch) leaf water, Sodium Benzoate*, Potassium Sorbate*

As a face mist it is pricy, but it feels so good on skin. I love to use it in the mornings and it wakes my skin up and I love the fresh birch scent it has.
