One of my favorite lip colors. I used (well, still have) several of these colors, but now they are all very old, so I don’t use them, but I have to repurchase this one. This is one of the first matte liquid lipsticks I have tried, and it is more sheer than the formulas that started to appear on the market later. It has a mousse-type texture, it takes a while to fully cure to a matte finish, and it won’t be completely opaque in the first coat, but it ends up looking more natural than an opaque liquid formula. Nude-ist is a medium soft warm pink.
MAX FACTOR Color Strengthening Cream
30 Redefining the Rose
Repurchase: It has been discontinued, but MF has some other great gentle lip products.
LIP SMACKER Lip Balm
Repurchase: I am concerned about the new panda version in DM.
My favorite lip balm, I have said a lot recently. Because of its size and the similarity of glue sticks, it may look dumb, but that’s because it is not a lip balm, but an emergency lip balm for dry areas. I have used it for many years.
My favorite cleansing oil, this is a refillable bag. These refills are actually not enough to fill the entire bottle, which is strange. I think it is only 3/4 or 4/5 full. In any case, it is a very good cleansing oil that can emulsify, has a good cleansing effect, does not blur my vision and can be completely washed off. There is also no fragrance, which is a good extra.
Repurchase: Yes, this is the only decent one I can get quickly.
Balea refreshing cleansing gel
Repurchase: If my skin changes and is no longer so dry.
I finally threw this away. When it comes to exfoliating effects, it is useless for my skin. Despite the strength, it never stung my skin, but it also never left me with the effect everyone is describing, so there is no fresh, renewed skin feel, no shine, no smoothness or softness. It didn’t even help my blemish marks disappear faster, which is the original reason I got this. Not worth mentioning at all. But my skin would be sour like that, nothing happened. The only reason I still keep this is BHA, because when I have spots, salicylic acid helps.
Repurchase: I don’t know. I got their 7% glycolic acid toner. We had a bad start and 10% lactic acid. This has potential in the end, but it’s not great.
L’Oreal Pure Clay Mask
Repurchase: I also have a Glow version, and then we will see.
It’s nothing special, but it is very light and has good ingredients, which makes me want to use it every day. It is mainly a moisturizing toner containing a small amount of retinol, peptides and vitamin C. It is a light and simple product that I can easily include in any combination of skin care routines.
CERAVE moisturizing cream
Buy: Maybe just use it on the body.
Babylove super sensitive head-to-toe lotion
I use it as a hand sanitizer every day and occasionally as a facial cleanser. This is a simple, very mild cream formula. Even though I wash it many times a day, my hands will not dry out. The pump is a bit scary because it sprays too far, especially when it gets clogged a little bit.
Repurchase: I bought the fragrance version, which is a thicker gel.
AFRODITA Lavender Relaxing Moment Oily Body Wash
It has such a wonderful lavender fragrance, I really like it. The formula is nothing special, but the fragrance alone is worth it, even if it only lasts a few seconds.
BEBE Peach Fresh Fruit Cream Shower Gel
Repurchase: It should not.
DRESDNER ESSENZ warm and comfortable shower
too expensive. Just an ordinary shower gel, it doesn’t even smell like Christmas. It smells more like oranges than spices.
BALEA Crèmedusche Magical Wonderland
A basic shower gel with floral fragrance, I think it is a mixture of rose or peony and some citrus. I’m not sure if this is still on sale, but I often buy Balea shower gel.
BALEA Rasiergel exotic cocoa
My standard shower gel. I have been buying these products for more than ten years and have tried many LE versions. I am not a big fan of this coconut, it is too synthetic.
BATH & BODY WORKS Ultra Shea Butter Body Cream
Fragrant mist is one of my favorite scents, but this is a different scent, more fruity than woody. However, if it gets on your clothes, it smells like mist. The texture is great, this is a beautiful, rich and thick moisturizer for dry skin.
Repurchase: I am a little disappointed with the smell because it is different, but still very good. I might get a different version.
L’Occitane Peony Hand Cream
L’Occitane has some of the best hand creams in its Shea Butter line, but these hand creams from the perfume line are usually not that special thin formula. They smell good and strong, but I will always stick to the 20% version. I kept this mini in my bag for a long time, but it has expired. It has a great floral fragrance, just like the other products in the series.
Repurchase: Not this version.
Balea care cream makes us magical and frustrated
These are the lighter Nivea creams in the pan. They absorb so quickly that I used them as hand creams for a while. Since the first launch a few years ago, I have had many versions, these two versions have a refreshing rose fragrance (which makes us magical) and a vanilla cookie fragrance. The main disadvantage of these is that they need to be used up quickly, otherwise they will turn glassy yellow and change the texture.
Repurchase: No, I am tired of these.
L’Oreal Elvital Öl Magique Low Shampoo
This is similar to curl nutrition, but not as good. There is no silky feel at all, and the formula feels a bit strange.
L’Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil Curl Nourishing Cleansing Conditioner
This is an excellent product, unfortunately we don’t have it here. It is a one-step product that combines shampoo and conditioner, but is essentially a conditioner that does not really foam, but my hair feels clean anyway, except for the scalp. It contains a lot of silicone, so when I rinsed it out, it made the hair very silky and moisturizing enough, although I only left it for a few minutes, it didn’t have that much time to work. This is the product I use when I don’t want to disturb my complicated daily work because it’s too fast, but if your hair is dirty, it can’t replace the shampoo/conditioner combination, it’s more suitable when you use it when you’re short of time Or the hair becomes very dry. It has no effect on the appearance of the hair, so there is no frizz control. A long time ago, when I felt it from a height, I broke the pump.
Repurchase: I can’t.
Repurchase: Done, I think I have two spare parts.
Pantene Pro-V Intensive Repair Shampoo
BALEA Professional Kophaut Balancing Conditioner
DM has stopped this. I don’t know why I worry about German brands such as Balea, Essence, Catrice, etc. They stopped everything and kept launching new products as if they were competing. In any case, this is a good scalp conditioner that helps relieve my itchy scalp. I hope it has no effect on my dandruff, but it is a good product. I also have this series of scalp moisturizers.
GUHL Deep Strengthening 1 minute Intensive Repairing Concentrate
For my very dry, rough, super curly hair, this is a useless mask. The ingredients are good, but it is too light and not nourishing enough for me. For hair that is not so dry, I think it would be great.
SHEA MOISTURE Jamaican Black Castor Oil Treatment Mask Sachet
Purchase: I think I will try other better versions.
A super thick, gentle mask, like the repaired version that I often repurchase, but I have no impression of this. It doesn’t feel so strong on my very dry, thick hair. I insist on buying repairs. I have lost hope that we can buy the pot version here, because in my local Müller, the number of their products has shrunk.
Repurchase: I will get repaired again.
CREATEURS DE MONOI face, hair and body oil
One of my favorite oils, but mainly for hair. It is the only oil that does not make my hair smell rancid the next day. It is a mixture of coconut oil and jojoba oil. It is a good oil for hair and against very dry hair. It has a strong floral fragrance, which is very good.
Repurchase: I have a spare.
BATISTE dry shampoo
Tropical, blush, cherry
I can no longer deal with dry shampoo. I used to use them occasionally just to add fragrance and volume to my hair, but now they all feel very dry. But Batiste is one of the most praised dry shampoos for oily hair, but personally, I find the powdery feeling very annoying, and I prefer the more refined Morocanoil dry shampoos. Tropical has a coconut scent, and I find it lacks something. Blush is a good strong orchid scent, and Cherry is another good floral scent.
