Products I finished !

Hi there !

Today I want to show you a few products I finished recently. 

  • First of all, I want to talk about the contour cream Foxy Curls from Tigi. I have been using this product for about 9 months. The smell is really sweet (smells to cotton candy). This product is used to control the curls and fight the frizz. It does actually its job : my hair was less frizzy and the curls were well defined, the texture is a bit sticky when we just apply it but it dries fast and the smell stays the whole day.  I don’t buy another one because it’s summer and I feel it’s a bit too heavy at the moment. I think it’s a good product for people who wants to give a nice shape to the curls. I would certainly buy it again but not so soon, I want to try other brands first 😉

  • I use these days the facial spray from Evian. It’s really good especially when it’s hot, I love to put it a bit in the fridge before using it. I mostly use it when I go out from the shower, I like to refresh my face with natural water, it helps me then to have a very soft and clean skin to then apply my face lotions and creams. I also use it in a different way : There are days when I don’t know how to set my hair properly and when I need to redefine my curls, I like to spray a bit the tips to give a bit of moisture. I wash my hair every 2 days so I can not say my head is dirty, but this is really to humidify and work with the hair. I finished this spray a few days ago and I already started another bottle.

  • Some people laugh when I tell them that I use every single day an anti-ageing eye contour cream. They think I am too young : I am 26 years old …  I believe if we don’t want to have wrinkles, we must treat our skin before we start to have some. I have bought a cream from Peggy Sage. It says this one has green tea extract. The tube is 15ml and I used it (morning and night) for about 5 months.  It’s really nice and even though I have a sensitive skin, this one didn’t bring me any allergies. You can see it here but I am not sure where exactly you can find it online, it says you can buy it only in authorized retailers.
  • I give a particular attention to body milks. I use them everyday, just after I take my shower (I take 2 showers a day : morning and night). I tried once a body milk from Korres, it was with Basil and Lemon. I didn’t smell very much to basil but I liked that product very much, so I wanted to try another one from that brand but with a different smell : Bergamot Pear.  It was really smelling to pear. I love the texture of it : it dries quite fast and is not sticky on the skin. The smells stays long time and the skin becomes very soft. I cannot find it in France so I buy it online. I finished this tube in about 2 weeks.It’s really a fresh smell for summer and I would for sure buy it again. I love that brand and if you care about the formula of your cosmetics, you should be happy to know that it has 92.3 % of natural content, with no mineral oil, no petrolatum/paraffin wax, no silicones, no parabens etc…

  • Finally, the last product I finished is the 24hr moisturizing body lotion from Nuxe. I love it ! I haven’t tried many products from Nuxe, but I can say that this one is really amazing. I also used it after the shower (I use one body lotion/milk at a time, I first finished Korres then I used that one). What can I say besides it’s just perfect! It’s with almond and orange flower petals. So the smell is not so strong nor floral at all (I don’t like to smell like a flower bouquet). The smell is relaxing and the skin becomes so soft after using it. The formula is 94% with natural ingredients and no parabens. As soon as I finished it I wanted to try another one from Topicrem (I will talk about it in another post) but I am regreting it very much and I am very impatient to buy that one again.

What’s your lip balm ?

I like to use lip balms, everyday. I have several and I use each of them on specific moments.

 

  • Clarins Baume Couleur Lèvres (Colour Quench Lip Balm)

I got the lip balm n°6 : “Sweet Papaya”

I like to use that one when I don’t want to wear lipstick, that one is (as mentioned) coloured so it’s easy to have moisturised and super shinning  lips, it’s also perfect when we want a quick touch-up.

 

  • Nuxe Rêve de Miel

It’s an amazing lip balm and I often use it just before applying lipstick (so that I don’t feel my lips too dry). It’s something I will always have in my cosmetic box, I just love it and I love the smell !

 

  • Japanese Lip balms

I have a few lip balms from Japan, and I really like to use them.

(from left to right) :

  • Mentholatum Water Lip : that one simply I keep it on my purse and I use it when I am outside. It’s a good one, and has no smell at all. It really feels like water on the lips so it’s not sticky at all.

  • OMI Brotherhood Menturm medicated stick : this one is the lip balm I use every single day, morning – afternoon – night, I love it and I bought like 3 or 4 of that one (in Japan it costs less than 100 yen each = less than a dollar). It’s with menthol and it feels fresh after I use it. It’s the cheapest I’ve ever had but it’s really working on me.

  • Pure Coenzyme Q10 : this one is from the brand Kose. Why I also have this one is simple : it has a UV cut SPF17, so I use it when it’s a very sunny day.

Have you ever tried one of these ? What’s your lip balm ?
