a little selection of 'ordinary' items but next time expect to see some used up sun lotions because I'm finally going to the beach and have fun on the sun.

Essence Shine, Shine, Shine lip gloss in the shade Think Pink is one of my absolute favorites. Great shiny formula with a hint of color. Such a shame that they stopped making these but before they were completely sold out I got myself a back up of this shade so I'm not too sad.

Avon makes amazing mascaras, both, me and my sister are big fans of them and this one is actually my sisters favorite, I personally like to switch it up a bit but this Supershock mascara in Black always makes my lashes look super separated and long. My tube is a limited edition packaging but the brush is the exact same. At the moment I'm using different one (another one of my favorites) but soon I will repurchase this one again.

Another Avon product and this one is the body wash from senses, florist collection named Spring Bloom. To me, this was a bit fresher and with some zing, like it had some ginger in it. Not super floral or sweet, I liked it but wasn't my favorite and I'm glad I finished up this big bottle and I'm ready to start using something more up my alley (something sweeter and creamier).

Another floral product but in my opinion more true to its name is this Batiste dry shampoo called Floral. This is a typical Batiste dry shampoo, a bit white but nothing a good shake can't handle, it absorbs oils nicely through the day and keeps my hair fresher for longer. I'm super happy with this one and I'm going to repurchase it again.

The very last item is this lovely The Body Shop hand cream in Almond Milk & Honey version. The scent is creamy and super comforting, the formula absorbs fast and takes care of my dehydrated hands (hello sanitizers on every step). I can only rave about this product, the only negative thing that I can think of is small tube, because I finished it up way too fast... :)

Thank you for reading and have a nice day

today I have super short list of items I have finished up in the first half of the month, I think in the second half I will have some more products, but we shall see.

Her it goes another tube of Neutrogena oil free daily face moisturizer. For years this has been my favorite and it still is. Love the light texture which keeps me matte for longer, how fast it absorbs and even if sometimes my skin feels dry this helps it relive instantly. This remains my holy grail and I'm already on my next tube.

I randomly picked up this Biobaza natural doe in Green Tea Sensation and it was a lucky pick. It is a deodorant and not anti-perspirant so I still sweat but the formula made me smell fresh all day long. For me this really thick all the boxes and the green tea scent is so calming and fresh smelling... I would definitely repurchase it  again.

The last two items are exactly the same and are The Body Shop Peppermint Candy Cane body lotions. They were limited editions scents but I bought a lot of them because I can't resist the cooling peppermint-y scent with sweet sugar notes. I loved using them even now in the hot Summer and I'm super sad that this line isn't permanent. I still have one hand cream left and then it is gone. I sincerely hope that soon they will bring it back and I would go and buy some more :)

Thank you for reading and have a nice day

Big Softie and XXL Charm


today I have some of my favorite make-up products to talk about... that is lip products and more specifically lip glosses. I'm still loving the glossy lip.

Essence Plumping nudes lip glosses in shades Big Softie and  XXL Charm are the two that I picked out for the range.

In the name there is a clue of what kind of shades to expect :)
I picked out one 'neutral' nude and one sparkly number to have fun with it.

It has a regular applicator and the packaging holds up to 4,5 ml of product (it seems to me that they are making glosses smaller and smaller, tubes used to hold around 8-9 ml of product...).

Big Softie has a cream finish and it is a touch warmer, if I don't apply whole lot it doesn't bother me otherwise it can be a bit too warm toned for me. The other fun shade is XXL Charm and it doesn't have whole lot of pigment but it is jam packed with shimmer. On the lips it looks almost frosty but because it is glossy it doesn't bother me. I just have to be careful and not over do it.

They are a bit cooling but compared to some other plumping products these go on the mild side and so far I'm liking the fact that they aren't very strong because I'm starting to realize that I prefer non-tingling lip products. They also have a mild fruity scent which is a bit unexpected but really nice. 

All in all I'm quite happy about them, they are not my favorite and most probably I won't repurchase them but still. Fruity scent is a plus, light tingling also doesn't bother me and the shades are wearable. I can see myself wearing them daily and finish them up before this year ends.

Thank you for reading and have a nice day
