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 ;)

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*
*certified organic ingredient

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.

If you are interested checking it out, I'll link it here.

Review: Signe Seebid Strawberry Vanilla Powder Mask

Hi loves! Today I have for you Signe Seebid Strawberry Vanilla Powder Mask (50g,  €12.00). 

This is purifying powder mask. Its with strawberry, vanilla and white clay. It nourishes the skin with vitamin A, C, calcium and iron. Vanilla seed in the mask gently cleanse the skin. Its 100% natural and doesn't contain any synthetic preservatives, flavors or artificial colors.  
The powder mask is light pink color and it has bit of sour scent to it. It can be mixed with water, which I usually go for, because I do the mask in my bathroom and don't feel like going downstairs for milk or yogurt, which you can also use. I mix it together (I use 1 teaspoon) and apply it with a flat foundation brush. I try to apply even layer every where and I leave it on for 10 minutes.
The mask feels on the skin light and it doesn't feel uncomfortable, because I apply thick layer, so it doesn't get compleatly dry on the skin. After the mask has been on for 10 minutes, I wash it off with water (not too hot water) and gently massage the skin while I'm getting the mask off. The vanilla seeds in the mask exfoliate and cleanse the skin. After that I dry my face and my skin feels softer, brighter and plumper.
Ingredients: caolin white clay (white calin clay), fragaria vesca, maltodextrin (strawberry powder), CI77491 (red clay), vanilla planifolia (vanilla seeds)

I'm very happy with this mask. It makes my skin feel amazing and I love to support natural and clean beauty brand. If you are interested in it, you can check it out here.

Review: BonMerité Radiant Glow Body Cream

Hi loves! Today's review is on BonMerité Radiant Glow Body Cream (200ml), which is with carrot and silk.

The cream comes in a plastic tub and the texture of it is between body butter and a lotion. It feels light on skin and sinks into it with seconds. Its great to use in the mornings and I can get dressed right away. It didn't stain any of my cloths (because of the carrot oil)

The scent of the body cream is herbal and its not very strong. I don't really smell it when I apply it to my skin. The scent of it is 100% natural

The formula contains vitamin B5, which increases the elasticity, locking moisture into the skin and helps to make the skin smooth. Beta-carotene, which is find in carrot oil provides beautiful complexion. Wheat germ oil is rich with vitamin E and this helps against skin aging. All the ingredients in this product are 100% natural and ecological ingredients. Thats why I like to buy their products. Its my second body cream from them (review).

The color of the body cream is yellow and it doesn't stain the closed, like I mentioned above.

IngredientsAqua (water), Cocos Nucifera Oil (Coconut), Butyrospermum Parkii Butter (Shea Nut), Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Oryza Sativa Bran Oil (rice), Triticum Vulgare Germ Oil (wheat), Beta-Carotene (from carrot), Polyglyceryl-3 Methylglucose Distearate (Ecocert certified natural Emulsifier), Glycerine (natural Moisturizer), Cetyl Alcohol (natural Moisturizer), Panthenol (Vitamin B5), Hydrolyzed Silk, [Benzyl alcohol, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate [Ecocert certified preservative], Mentha Arvensis Herb Oil (peppermint), Vanilla Plantifolia (vanilla) Fruit Exctract, Citric Acid  

I have finished this cream by now and I do like it. Its so light formula and it gives my skin moisture and makes it look nice. I don't have one bad thing to say about it :)

I do wanna say I'm sorry for taking time off from this blog. In August I had too much going on and I just needed a brake, but I'm back now and keep posting every week on Friday mornings.
