Estonian Beauty Haul 2017 #2


Hi loves! Happy midsummer night to you all! Its a big holiday here in Estonia and also one of my favorites :) Who doesn't love long days, specially after dark winter. Its perfect to have Estonian beauty haul and most items I picked up are from Estonian brands. 


I first picked up some Hoia goodies and I got their Lavender, Rosemary & Grapefruit Bodywhip (200ml). This sounds lovely and my girlfriend loves their bodywhips and I love lotions with lavender in it. Other Item from them is Coffee & Peppermint Bodyscrub (200ml). It sounded like a must have for me, because it has two things together I love coffee and peppermint.

I picked up Signe Seebid Orange Body Scrub (200g) from Kaubamaja. I could not resist the yummy scent of it and also I love the glass packaging.


I also got something from Joik and its their Shower Oil Raspberry Bon Bon (200ml). It has been in my wishlist for sometime and I have never tried something like this.

The next item is from Natura Siberica Extra-Firming Facial Mask (75ml, its one of the non Estonian brands). I used up my other mask, so I wanted to try something new and I haven't tried their skincare before.

Time to move on to makeup items and continuing with non Estonian brand. I got two pigments from Bellapierre and I got shade Resonance (pink) and the shade of the other one is rubbed off, so I don't know the name of it, but it is a gorgeous green, which can't wait to try.

If you have read this blog for sometime, you know I love Ontic Minerals shadows and I wanted to try their foundation and bronzer.I got the Flawless Mineral Foundation in shade Stories From the Ivory Coat. I hope it will match me, I should have gone with out any makeup on, to get matched before buy it. I like it has also SPF15 and so does the bronzer. Its their Mineral Bronzer and I got the shade Sunblessed.


This is it for my little beauty haul :) I hope you guys like this post and if you have any great natural brands to recommend to me, let me know in the comments below.

Review: Seraphine Botanicals Orange + Cream Lip Polish


Hi loves! Its so important to keep the lips hydrated and smooth, specially when you like to wear liquid lipsticks like me. I have been testing out Seraphine Botanicals Orange + Cream Lip Polish (10g, $18) and its 99.5% natural.


The lip scrub comes in a little jar and I need to scoop out the product. The scrub itself has a light orange scent to it, which I love. The formula is with out mineral oil, parabens and phthalates. Its not tested on animals and is hypoallergenic. Its also vegan and GMO free.

Its with avocado and apricot oils, which help repair chapped lips. The golden sugar in it helps to remove dead skin cells and makes lips smoother. It also contains mango butter, which provides hydration through out the day.


I like to wet my lips before I apply it and then massage my lips with it till the sugar melts away. On their page they do say to leave it on for 2 minutes and I understand why, because it can work the magic and make lips softer. But I wash it off and my lips are more nourished then before. I like it can be scrub and a lip mask at the same time. Its recommended to use 1-2 times a week. I usually use this type of items whenever I feel the need. 

Down below you can see before and after pictures. Sorry about the bad quality, I don't have the best lighting in the bathroom. You can still see, that scrub made my lips seem fuller and smoother.


I'm really happy with this little treasure! So happy I got it in my Style Tone box (latest unboxing). It has been pleasure to use :) If you are interested in it, you can check it out here.


Do you use lip scrub regularly?

Review: Ontic MInerals Mineral Veil | R2 Translucent


Hi loves! Today I have for you review on Ontic MInerals Mineral Veil and its in shade R2 Translucent (8g, 26.95EUR). There is two other powders from this range, the one I have has shimmer to it. I haven't used this rice powder to set my makeup, but its perfect to brush away my bake ;)


It comes in a jar and has a shifter, which doesn't let all the powder come out. In the jar the powder looks white and has a slight silver sheen to it. There is no scent to it and there is so many ways to use this powder. I like to brush away my bake with it and it works as the Hourglass Abient Light powder. I also have used this Ontic Minerals powder as my highlighter on cheeks bones, on the cupid's bow. It can be used as a highlighter wherever you want. It doesn't look over powering, but it can be more intense, if you wet the brush with setting spray. I sometimes do it when I want more intense highlight.



On the swatch it might seem too much, but I did build it up. You can see here how it looks when I brush off my bake with this powder. It brightens up everything so well and it has been my favorite powder for highlighting and just brightening up any makeup look. I want to try next their matte powder to set my foundation and see how it will work for me :)

If you are interested in this powder you can check it out here.

Review: Bellapierre Cosmetics Kiss Proof Lip Créme | Hot Head


Hi loves! Last week was so busy that I didn't find the time to post, so this week you guys will get 2 post and first one is on Bellapierre Cosmetics Kiss Proof Lip Créme in shade Hothead (3.8g, $20). All together there is 15 shades available. 

If you don't know the brand they do mineral makeup and have received Natural & Organic Award Europe 2017. Also their products are cruelty free. 


This liquid lipstick comes in a clear tube and has a flat doe foot applicator. It helps to get precise application, which is a must have with a bright liquid lipstick. The formula of it is creamy and so pigmented, which you can see down below for yourself. The liquid lipstick has a sweet candy scent to it, which I adore.

The application is so easy with this liquid lipstick. It applies evenly and I need only one coat and it lasts on me all day with out fading. It stays on lips all day, but it does feel sticking when I put my lips together. When swatched on hand it doesn't feel sticking at all, which is weird.


About the claim its kiss proof, I have to say its 99% true. I do get slight transfer, but on swatch I can rub it and it doesn't go anywhere. Because the formula of it is so long lasting, it does feel drying on lips. I can feel the dryness end of the day, but its perfect for times when I do need my lipstick to last a long time. I wouldn't wear it daily, but special occasions its brilliant ;) Down below you can see how it looks on lips. Its so pretty shade and I'm so happy I got this shade in my beauty subscription box :D


Of you are interested checking it out it and other shades, you can do so here.

Review: Joik Citrus Bath Truffles


Hi loves! I have been testing out Joik Citrus Bath Truffles (310g, 11.93 EUR). Joik is Estonian beauty brand and they make 100% natural bath, body and skincare products. You can read my previous review on them here.


These come in a box and all the truffles are packaged in individual squares. These are with lemon, orange, grapefruit essential oils and also contains nourishing cocoa butter. These all help to provide nourishment to the skin when your taking a bath.

I  use one truffle in the bath (which is recommended) and I usually don't add anything extra. I let it slowly melt in the bath water. This is not going to give you bubbles or chance the color of the water. This makes the bath water more oily and it made me feel so relaxed and my skin after the bath was so soft and hydrated. I didn't need to apply any moisturizer after the bath. I have very dry skin on my legs and it almost never happens with bath product that I don't need to moisturize my skin after bath.


These also smell so good citrusy, which I find is appropriate scent for the beginning of summer as its light and fruity. The scent is not over powering, which I like, because I can use my fragrance when I want to go out in the evening and the scent from the truffle doesn't effect my parfume scent.  


I really loved this one, but my all time favorite is still their white chocolate bath truffles (review), which are amazing! If you are interested in the citrus ones, you can find these on Douglas NL (link).

Review: Balance Me Super Moisturising Body Wash


Hi loves! How are you all doing? I have been sick the past 3 days and still am, but I feel bit better and I'm able to blog :) Today's post is on Balance Me Super Moisturising Body Wash (200ml). The formula of it is richly hydrating and claims to be dry skin friendly.


The shower gel comes in a yellow squeeze tube (on their page I found only 280ml bottle, which comes with a pump) and I love the yellow packaging. It looks so happy :) Its easy to get the product out and the formula is with out parabens, sulphates, petroleum, mineral oils, silicones, dea, pegs propylene glycol, artificial fragrances and colors. It does have a herbal scent to it, which I personally like, but it took me sometime to get use to it.


How to use: Massage it onto wet skin and wash off. 

It doesn't dry my skin out like some other shower gels do. It leaves it hydrated, but I still need to moisturize my skin after shower, because its just not enough (I have very dry skin). It has been my goto shower gel, because how gentle it is to my skin and the herbal scent is so relaxing. I also like the texture of the body wash, its not too runny, more like proper gel.



I definetly will buy a new bottle after I finish this one and maybe try a new body wash as well :) I also like 99% of the ingredients are natural. If you are interested in this you can find it in bigger bottle on their pager (link).

Beauty Haul: Ilu Sõnum


Hi loves! I picked up few amazing beauty items from Ilu Sõnum. Its a beauty fair, which takes place in Estonia twice year: spring and fall.

Lets jump in and the first thing I picked up is a love body butter from Olivolio Botanics and its their Donkey Milk Body Butter (review). Its for dry skin and makes my skin feel so hydrated and soft. I didn't expect to find it there, so it was a nice surprise.



Next I got MICA Beauty Makeup Perfecting Primer (30ml). It instantly makes the skin matte and smooth. It doesn't contain any parabens and if you didn't know before they do mineral makeup. I haven't tried their makeup before, but I do like some of their skincare items like the peeling gel (review) and the cleansing milk (review). I'm so excited to try their makeup base and I'll let you guys know how I like it :) Hopefully it will keep me matte all day, fingers crossed.




I ended up getting 2 skincare items from Premier and the first one is their Perfecting Eye Serum (30ml), I have very dry under eye area and I try this serum there on my hand and it made it so soft that I couldn't leave with out it. Their skincare is expensive, but I did get a free gift with it and I could choose between face serum or an eye cream. I picked their Prestige Concentrated Face Serum (50ml). Its so generous gift and I can't wait to start testing everything out. I also like the dark blue packaging.







The last two items I got, are from a new brand to me and it is -417. Its from Isreal and I got their Aromatic Body Peeling Kiwi & Mango (450g), which I could test out there on my hands and it made the skin so smooth. Another item I couldn't resist :D I also got from the same range their Aromatic Body Butter Kiwi & Mango (250ml) and this made my hands so soft. I got a free gift with the purchase, which is their Hand moisturizer (50ml). Its in perfect size for traveling. 



This is it for my little haul :) I'm so excited to try out the new goodies and I'm happy I found a new brand to try as well. It was a great trip :)


Have you tried any of these items?

Review: Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder


Hi loves! Today's post is on Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder (5g, $4.40). Innisfree is a Korean beauty brand and they make natural beauty products. I got this powder in my Bomibox (its a beauty subscription box and contains full size kbeauty items).


The powder comes in a light green jar and has a sifter in it, so the powder wouldn't come out. It also came with a buff, but I like to use a brush more when applying my powder, so I tossed it.

The powder is with Jeju natural minerals and mint, which help with oil control. It also promises to control sebum, but I still get oily through out the day. I did notice when using it, my skin felt all day silky to the touch, even when I looked oily in the t-zone. It also didn't let my makeup brake up. I only needed to blot the skin and I my makeup looked fresh.


Another thing I like about this powder is the fact I can use it more ways then one. I can use it to prime my lids, set my makeup, use it after my skincare to control oiliness and also on my hair when its bit oily. It perfect for travel and it also helps the packaging is small ;)


I'm really happy with this powder. It handled my oily skin better then I expected. I haven't tried anything else from the brand and it was such a great introduction to the brand. Makes me wanna try more :)

If you are interested in this powder you can find it on RoseRoseShop, I'll leave the link here

Review: Evelyn Iona Natural & Organic Lip Gloss | Lise


Hi loves! I have been loving Evelyn Iona Natural & Organic Lip Gloss in shade Lise ($21). I got it in a Style Tone box and I love the ingredients in it are natural and organic. Every item you buy from the brand $1 will be donated to YWCA Canada. Here is the link to their main page, if you wanna check it out. Also all their products are cruelty free.


The gloss comes in a clear tube and has a very standard applicator. It glides on easily and it has a sweet vanilla scent to it, which I love. I love all the ingredients in it are eatable, so I can just eat it up if I want :) It contains ingredients like bark extract, which tightens and plumps the lips and I have to say my lips do look lusher whenever I have worn this gloss. Also contains oregano, which acts as antioxidant, vitamin E is natural moisturizer. Coconut oil helps with signs of aging and shea butter helps the skin with healing and improves the look.


The shades I got in the Style Tone box is Lise and its beautiful! Its a pinky nude shade with golden flakes in it. It looks gorgeous all over the lips and pair it with a bronze eye look, even more. Its perfect shade for summer and I just like to wear it on its own. Its quit pigmented for a gloss and I like the formula of it is not sticky. It glides on lips easily and makes my lips look bigger and lusher. I'm so impressed with it and I know its going to be most worn gloss this summer :)


The staying power is typical for a gloss. It does stay on through out drinks, but does lose some of the shine. It comes completely off after having food. I don't mind the reapplying, because its so effortless.


I'm so impressed with the gloss! Unfortunately their products are not available in Europe. They do deliver to USA, Canada and Australia (link). This gloss is available on Style Tone webshop, if you are interested I'll link it here


Have you heard of this gloss before?

Review: Organic Shop Organic Coffee & Sugar Body Scrub


Hi loves! Like promised this week I'll post one extra post, which is today's and I have review on Organic Shop Organic Coffee & Sugar Body Scrub (250ml, 6,35 EUR).


The scrub comes in a plastic jar and I need to scoop out the product. The formula contains 99.54% ingredients from natural origins and is free off SLS, parabens and silicones. The scrub feels thick and does a great job scrubbing all the dead skin cells off. It also contains organic coffee oil and natural sugar.


Its recommended to use 2 to 3 times a week. I use it on shower and massage it with circular motion on my skin. It leaves it soft and hydrated. Only thing I don't like so much is the scent. Its a coffee scent but some reason I don't like it. It just doesn't smell like freshly made coffee, which is the best smell in the world.



I love how it makes my skin feel and it is affordable, but I don't think I'll be repurchasing it, because of the scent. It's just my personal feelings. If you are still interested in this scrub and wanna check it out, I'll link it here.


Have you tried the brand before?

Review: Ontic Minerals Mineral Eyeshadow | Champagne Sparkles, I Insist!


Hi loves! Sorry for missing last week's post, but I'll post next week 2 posts. This week I have review on Ontic Minerals Mineral Eyeshadows in shade Champagne Sparkles, I Insist! (9.95 EUR). Their shadows are 100% natural and these two shades where sent to me with their glitters, which you can check out here


The formula of the shadows is silky to the touch and these are waterproof. These can be used dry or wet and the formula contains jojoba oil, which conditions and hydrates the delicate skin. There is no scent to these and its easy to remove with makeup remover.

Down below you can see swatches of both shades and these are so pigmented. I did swatch these dry, but I do like to apply these with wet brush. Its easy to work with these and they also work well with other powder shadows. I have two more shadows from them, which I bought myself and you can check the review on these out here.


  • E07 I insist! - is a pale green with golden glitter in it. It looks beautiful all over the lid. I like to use it whenever I do smokey eye in deeper greens.
  • E36 Champagne Sparkles - is shimmery champagne shade, which looks beautiful all over the lid and I also have used it in the inner corner of the eye.

I love these new shades and I'm happy to have them in my collection. I definetly wanna add more shades to my collection, which I'll do when I go to Estonia in May. You can check out their full eyeshadow range here.

Review: Naobay Renewal Argan Oil


Hi loves! Today's post is on wonderful beauty oil from Naobay and its their Renewal Argan Oil (30ml, 29.95 EUR). I picked it up in Estonia (store called I.L.U), but its also available on Amazon (Germany, link).


This beauty oil comes in a glass bottle and has a dropper, which makes application easier. 

Argan oil contains 80% essential fatty acids. 45% of oleic acids and 35% of linoleic acids with high amount of vitamin E. The oil helps to fight against wrinkles, providing skin elasticity and also providing hydration to the skin. All the ingredients in this beauty oil are from natural origins.


I use this oil every evening as a last step in my skincare routine. It can also be mixed into night/day cream. If you have dry skin, it also good to add few drops of facial oil in your foundation. This would not work for me as I do have oily skin. I like to use oils in the evenings. After I have applied my night cream, I apply 3 drops of it to my face and massage it in. I also use it on my neck. 

It sinks into the skin fast, but it does make my skin feel oily in the beginning. The oil has a natural scent to it and the formula of it feels light weight. In the morning my skin is not at all oily. It leaves it so soft, smooth and so much brighter. Before I stayed away from oils, but they really do make a huge difference in my skin. It nourishes the skin throughly when I sleep and helps to keep it soft and bright the next day.


I'm so happy I picked this oil up! It has been wonderful to my skin and I'm happy to have it in my face oil collection.

Review: Aïcha Argan Skin Therapy Eye Serum


Hi loves! I missed last week's post, so you get it today :) I have been testing out for months now Aïcha Argan Skin Therapy Eye Serum (15ml, 27.95 EUR, link)


The eye serum is a blend of 100% organic oils and its easy to apply under eye area, because it does come with roller ball applicator. The formula is rich with nutrients, antioxidants and has free radical properties. There is no scent to it and it sinks into the skin instantly. 


I have been using it months now and its the only thing, which has helped me with the dryness under my eye area and also above the crease, I had some dry patches there. I use it morning and evening, after applying my eye cream (because it is a oil). It took care of the dry patches and I don't have the dryness there any more. Also my concealer applies better and my under eye area doesn't look dry and the fine lines under my eye are gone.

I love how the roller ball cools and massage the under eye area and helps to apply right amount of product and I also feel it sinks into the skin better with it.


I have been loving this gem and I also love the brand. I did post few months ago where I shared my favorite items from the brand, if you are interested I'll leave it here. The link where to buy the Aïcha Argan Skin Therapy Eye Serum is on top of the post.


Have you tried anything from the brand?

Review: Joik Refreshing and Clarifying Green Tea & Peppermint Facial Mask


Hi loves! Today's post is on Joik Refreshing and Clarifying Green Tea & Peppermint Facial Mask (50g, 10.90€) and its suitable for normal and oily skin. Its 100% natural and thats why I like Joik products so much. 


The mask comes is a jar and is in powder form. It can be mixed with water, milk or herbal tea. The formula contains French green clay, which helps to dissolve impurities and excess oil. Its also great for the minimizing pores. Green tea firms the skin and helps to maintain skins elasticity. Peppermint helps to prevent clogged pores and also controls the secretion of excess oil. The milk powder in it soothes the skin and makes it soft.

I mix usually 2 tea spoons of the mask powder and the same amount of water, and you can also use milk or herbal tea, if you want. I mix it together and apply it on dry skin. I keep it on form 10 minutes usually, but it can be on up to 15 minutes. Its recommended to use once a week and I have been doing it. 



After 10 minutes I wash the mask off with warm water and I'm left with so smooth skin and it feels also softer. It doesn't irritate my skin in any way. With some mask, which are clarifying have made my skin red, but not this one. It also makes my pores look better and my skin overall look is much better. You can see the before & after picture down below.



I'm so happy I picked up this mask from Joik. I do have few other powder mask from them, which I'm so eager to start testing out. If you are interested in this mask I'll link it here and they do deliver world wide.
