Review: Himalaya Herbals Apricot Scrub

Hi loves! I'm using a face scrub every evening and at the moment I'm trying out Himalaya Herbals Apricot Scrub (75 ml).

The scrub comes in a white plastic squeeze tube. Its light enough to take with me when traveling, which I have done now (thats why the pictures are the way they are, no flowers). Its easy to squeeze out as much product as I want and it does smell like apricot. It not my favorite scent for skincare item, as its too warm scent for me. I like something more citrus (I did got in in a beauty box. I don't think I would have picked it up on my own).

The formula of it is creamy with little beads in it, which exfoliate the skin and it does feel gentle on skin. Its with vitamin E, which nourishes the skin. The key ingredients are Apricot, Wheatgerm Oil (rich with vitamin E) and Apple. The formula is with out parabens, SLS/SLES and phthalates. Also their products are natural and contain special herbs.
How to use:
Like I said I like to use it in the evenings, because I have oily skin and large pores and I feel like my skin needs the extra cleansing it provides. Its recommended to use 2-3 times a week. I apply bit of it on my damp skin and use circular motion to massage my face with it and I do it 1 minute. 

After that I wash it off and it leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth. I do like it doesn't strip my skin, so I don't get any uncomfortable feeling from it (like too tight skin).

Overall I'm impressed with it. Its perfect for people who are looking gentle face scrub. I like the hydrating formula it has and how comfortable my skin feels after I have used it. It has been perfect for 
this time of the year as the summer does have its effect on my skin.

You can check out all their products here. I will want to try more of their products in the future, if you are familiar with the brand and have recommendations let me know in the comments below.

Review: Amanprana Razoli

Hi beauties! Summer is time when its all about smooth legs and I have been testing out Amanprana Razoli (100 ml, 34.95 EUR) and I did get it free to review. Its 100% natural and organic, and it can be used all over the body.

Razoli comes in a glass bottle and has twist off cap, which is not ideal packaging in my oppinion, because it gets all oily and it would be so handy if it would come with a pump and way more comfortable to use. As I mentioned before it can be used all over the body, it can be used to shave legs, armpits and also pubic hair.

The formula contains extra vinegar olive, coconut and almond oil, which work together with essential oils to repair wounds and irritant areas and also eradicate bacteria. It also contains natural vitamin E and carotenes, which keep skin young and supple. Its also free of parabens, chemicals, alcohol, paraffin and wax.

I like it can be used wet and dry and they recommend massaging the Razoli into the skin and first shave in the direction the hair grows and then against it. 

The oil itself is light weight and spreads easily over the skin. It has a light citrus scent to it, which smells so refreshing and makes shaving easier.

I have been now using it for few weeks now and it does give me way closer shave and I have noticed my legs stay smooth longer. At the same time it conditions my skin and leaves it softer and hydrated. I have also used it on other parts on my body and it works well. I haven't experience any skin irritation. 

It is a pricy item, but I don't need to use a lot at once. I also like its natural and contains good ingredients and is cruelty free.

If you are interested in this item I'll link it here. They have other natural products as well, like their mouth oil, which I did review (link) on my other blog.

Have you tried shaving oils before?

Review: Starskin Hydrating Bio-Cellulose Second Skin Facial Mask

Hi loves! Today I have for you a sheet mask from Starskin and the mask I tried out, is their Hydrating Bio-Cellulose Second Skin Facial Mask (40 g, 10 EUR). Its organic facial treatment and it fits all skin types.

Starskin Bio-Cellulose formula is made from naturally fermented coconut juice which contains essential vitamins and has natural smoothing and hydrating qualities. Starskin masks deliver tops spa results in just 20 minutes of application. Skin is instantly refreshed, smooth, uplifted and and produces a vibrant glowing complexion.

The mask is infused with 1 full bottle of serum, dermatologist created formula and the packaging is travel friendly. Its perfect to take with you when traveling.  

When opening the package, the mask is between 2 sheets of thin plastic. It makes applying the mask easier, as its not tangled up. It fit on my skin well and was comfortable to wear. I didn't feel like it would fall off, which I experience with some other sheet masks in the past.

I applied it on cleansed face and kept it on 20 minutes (it can be kept till 25 minutes). After removing the mask, I pat any excess serum into my skin. I was left with hydrated smooth skin and it felt softer and plumper. It also brightened my complexion, it doesn't look as dull as before. You can see before and after picture down below.

It is more expensive then most sheet masks I have tried, but the ingredients in it are good and you can see instantly the result. I will definitely buy this mask again. It will be my specially pamper mask :D If you are interested where to get hold of these, I'll link it here. Beutybay does deliver world wide. These are also available on Douglas.

Review: Peony Pink Glow Luminizing Stick

Hi loves! I wanted to get this post up on Monday, but didn't make it, so here it is ;) I got Peony Pink Glow Luminizing Stick (1.8 g, $22) in a last Style Tone box. If you don't follow my other blog, I'll link the post here, if you are interested checking it out.

Its a completely new brand to me, so I didn't have any thoughts on their products or expectations. Pink Glow is 91% natural and their products are cruelty free, they don't test their products or ingredients on animals. 

Like the name of the product says, it comes in a stick form. It has a clear lid, which lets me see the product itself. I can twist up the stick, if I need more. Thank God there is no sharpening needed, we all know how much I hate that!

The formula of it is vegan, doesn't contain any parabens, mineral oils and phthalates. Its also gluten free, hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic. The formula is gel based and has light pearly pink shade to it. As you can see from the picture below its nicely pigmented and it feels so light weight on skin.

I apply it before I powder my fave, because it does feel very creamy even though its gel based. I blend it in with my finger tips and it leaves the most natural glow on the cheek bones. I love how easy it is to blend out an how fuss free it is to use. I also love the sweet scent it has as, which is not over powering or too strong. It does contain fragrance in the ingredients list, so some beauties might not like it because of it. It hasn't irritated or broken out my skin, so I'll keep using this gorgeous products <3 

I have been using it together with So Susan blush and these together give me the most gorgeous glow and color to my cheeks, which lasts all day!

I'm liking the formula of it and also it has 91% natural ingredients and the packaging is all cute too :)

If you are interested in this little beauty I'll link it here.

Review: Earth Kiss Clean Up Mud Mask

Hi loves! Welcome back! Hope everything is good with you guys :) Today's post is on Earth Kiss mask and I have reviewed their mask before as well. You can take a look of these reviews here and here. They makes 100% natural face masks and today's mask is their Clean Up Mud Mask Exfoliate (17 g, 2.49 EUR).

Its one time use, which makes it perfect partner when I'm traveling. Its with Mediterranean Clay, Volcanic Pumice, rosemary, Himalayan Shilaijt and 85 plant micro-nutrients. The mask claims to deep cleanse the skin, rejuvenates and gives energy to the skin. 

It has little particles in it, which exfoliate the skin when I wash it off. The scent of it reminds me medication, which I personally like. I feel like it will heal all my skin problems :D I applied it to clean face and hold it on 12 minutes. On the packaged it says to keep it on 15-20 minutes, but for me it got uncomfortable, so I washed it off after 12 minutes.

After washing off the mask I'm left with smooth and soft skin. The texture of my skin looks nicer and also brighter. You can take a look for yourself on the picture below.

I'm really happy with this mask. Its not my favorite mask from them, I think the very first mask I tried was my favorite out of all 3 I have tried so far.
