Review: Bellapierre Cheek & Lip Stain | Pink

Hi loves! I love cream blushes, because how fuss free its to use and I find cream blushes last longer on me. I have been using lately Bellapierre Cheek & Lip Stain in shade Pink ($20.00, 5g). Its also available in shade Coral.

This comes in a little plastic jar and the formula of it is oil free. It blends out super easily. I like to apply a bit of it on the my cheeks and blend out with more tense blending brush. It blends out evenly and I can build it up, if I want stronger looking blush. It might seem bit too pink, but on  pale skin tone it looks very flattering. Down below you can see a swatch of it and also the blended out version (on the right).

Once I set it with translucent powder, all the other powders apply on it as usually and there is no blotchiness, everything looks as it should. I'm really impresses with it and I feel I can use it with any eye look. Its so flattering tone of pink. 

I haven't used it on lips, so I can't comment on the staying power on there, but on cheeks it lasted on me all day with out fading or turning it blotchy mess. Also it hasn't broken me out or caused any irritation. Down below you can see all the ingredient list.

There is no scent to it and their products are not tested on animals. They also winner of Natural & Organic Awards Europe 2017. 

IngredientsOctyl Palmitate, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Cetyl Dimethicone Petrolatum, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Nylon-12, Cera Alba (Beeswax), Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Candelilla Cera (Candelilla Wax), Propylene Glycol Laurate, Copernicia Cerifera Cera (Carnauba Wax), Silica, Phenoxyethanol.

All the info on the ingredients is from EWG's Skin Deep Cosmetics Database (low hazard,medium hazardhigh hazard). If I haven't colored an ingredient it means I didn't find it in the database. 

So far I have been really happy with everything I have tried from the brand. This is such a nice item to add into my mineral makeup collection. If you are interested in this, you can check it out here.

Review: Aïcha Cream Milk Cleanser & Salt Face Scrub

Hi loves! I have been testing out 2 new Aïcha products. I have been using 2 weeks their Cream Milk Cleanser and Salt Face Scrub (100ml, 24.95 EUR/23.50EUR). I love their new white and blue packaging, its beautiful 💙

They make natural, organic products and these are vegan. Both products come is squeeze tube packaging and its easy to get the product out. The formula is with out parabens, chemical and sulphate free. Both products are with Seaweed Extract, Blue Green Algae and Marine Collagen. Marine collagen soothes the skin and seaweed and kelp extract calms and heals the skin. Blue green algae revitalizes and nourishes the skin. Both products fit all skin types and are gentle to the skin.

I have used their Cream Milk Cleanser every morning to cleans my skin. I put some of it on my hands and apply it to dry skin and gently massage. After that I wash it off with warm water. The formula of it is hydrating and exactly what my skin need this time of the year, because of the colder weather. I also used it when I was in Philippines where its hot (30C) and my skin loved it. It just gives the right amount of hydration to my skin and doesn't make it feel stripped. It also makes my skin feel clean and all the dirt is off, not that there is much and I do like to do double cleans in the evenings. This also has the best scent to it, which reminds me of beach and vacation. It does contain fragrance, so it means it might not be the best fit for sensitive skin type.

Ingredients: Aqua, Cetearyl Alcohol, Polysorbate 60, Prunus Armeniaca Oil*, Vitis Vinifera oil*, Cocos Nucifera Oil*, Persea Gratissima Oil*, Marine Collagen Extract, Seaweed Extract, Spirulina*, Sea Kelp Extract, Potassium Oleate, Potassium Cocoate, Potassium Citrate, (palm free vegetable) Glycerin, Palm Stearic Acid, Xanthan Gum, Potassium Palm Kernelate, Palm Kernel, Calophyllum Inophyllum Oil, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Parfume 

All the info on the ingredients is from EWG's Skin Deep Cosmetics Database (low hazard, medium hazard, high hazard). If I haven't colored an ingredient it means I didn't find it in the database.
*Organic ingredients

Their Salt Face Scrub is super gentle and I also like to use it on my face when its dry (works much better). I feel this is like milk cleanser + the scrub, like hybrid. I use it after removing my makeup with a cleansing oil. This gentle removes all the dirt off my skin and whatever makeup was left behind from the cleansing oil. After I wash it off with water my skin feels smoother, thoroughly cleansed and so soft. I like it cleanses and gives hydration boost to my skin as well. so many scrubs strip the skin and make it feel uncomfortable, but not this one. I'm so in love it the unique formula.

I'm so impressed with both of the products. Both are gentle to my skin and haven't caused me to brake out or irritated my skin in any way. These have been keeping my skin in good condition and I just love both of these products. And I love the scent of both (the scent on the scrub is lighter, not as noticeable).

These should be available on their page (link) soon (in January). I do like their other skincare products as well and you can find all the reviews on them on my blog.

Wishlist: Pillerkaar | Luuv, Le'Maagi, Amii, Joik

Hi loves! I'm going to Estonia for the holiday's and every time I'm there I visit Pillerkaar, so I put together a little wishlist what I would like to get from there when I visit. They carry only natural beauty products and all are made in Estonia.

The first thing I have in my list is Le'Maagi Highlighters (link) in shade Beach Girl and Champagne Club (16.99 EUR). These look beautiful for my skin tone and I have tried one of their eyeshadows before, which was fab (review), so I have high hopes for these ones as well.

I have also few picks from brand Luuv, which is a new brand for me. I want to try their Shimmering Dry Oil (link), which is with carrot. It contains vitamin A and E, which are both good for the skin and I like the look this type of product can give me. Its also plus it claims to be hydrating.

Another product from them I wanna try is Self Tanning Dry Oil (19.90 EUR). I have heard great things about this tanning oil and it applies evenly on skin, no streaks. Thats what one of the girls told me who works there and uses it herself.

I do have 2 candles in my wishlist and the these have Christmas vibe to them. The first is Amii (which is new brand to me) Scented Gingerbread (7.99 EUR, 110g, link) candle and its a soya wax candle. I love gingerbread cookies this time of the year and I can already imagine how yummy this will smell.

The last item in this wish list is Joik Oh Christmas Tree Soya wax candle (link, 8.35 EUR). This is another holiday themed candle and I already know I like their scented candles. This will make my home smell wonderful. 

Have you tried anything from this list?

Review: Blessix Silk & Shine Eye Gel

Hi loves! I have dry under eye area and I have been testing Blessix Silk & Shine Eye Gel (15ml, €24.90).

It comes golden bronze metal jar and has the brands logon the cap. The formula of the eye gel feels light weight. It has light apricot shade to it and also it has bit of shimmer to it, which is really fine. It contains silk proteins, organic oils, aloe vera, fluorescent pigments and antioxidants. It fits all skin types. It reduces look of fatigue and provides hydration to deeper layers of epidermis.   
One of the first things I noticed when I started using this eye gel is how fast it sinks into the skin. It instantly brightens up the under eye area and makes me look rested. It also provides hydration and make the under eye area look less dry. It did soften the look of fine lines under my eye, but it didn't take them away completely. It might work for me better when the summer comes, because this time of the year my under eye area is extra dry.

I do like the eye gel, because of the formula. I love how fast it sinks into my skin, it doesn't irritate my eyes and I do have sensitive eyes. Also like the brightening effect it gives me. I can make it work for me this time of the year, if I also use more eye masks, which I do every year, because just eye gel/cream is not enough for me. If you are interested in it you can check it out here.

Have you tried anything from the brand before?
