Reviews ~ Finished Products April 2014

'April is almost over, so you know what time it is. It's time for my finished products, and Ididn't extremely good, but also not bad. Let's see...' 

'First thing I used up here, is my €0,50 toothpaste from the Action. This was the whitening one, and so far it cleans my mouth. I didn't see extremely big changes if we're talking about the whitening part, but it worked fine.
The second item I used up is my Palmolive Damask Rose&Musk showergel. I love, love, love this showergel. I looked at my Action for more, but sadly enough, they didn't stock it. This lovely bottle was only €1,29, and if you're lucky, you will find it with discount in the Dutch Grocerystore for only 0,99. However, in my town this scent is always out of stock. I think that says enough.
Then my Limited Edition Yves Rocher Perfume for €8-9 in the scent Mango Passionfruit. It was okay and smells good, but after a while the alcohol comes out very harsh. This scent isn't available anymore, not that I know off anyway. I wouldn't repurchase it. It also took me a long time to get through this 100ml bottle.' 

'Also finished this month, my Essence Studio Nails Hardening basecoat. It was €1,79, and did the job. The only thing, you will waste 1/4 bottle, because it get's goopy very quikly. Especially when you use it a lot like me. Not sure if I want to repurchase.
Then a Max Nails mini Nailpolish in the color purple. This little buddy came in a pack of four, wich I reviewed earlier <here>. I painted my nails 5-6 times and then it dried up. These bottles are super handy to travel with. I needed only one layer a time, so the coverage is excellent. I think these polishes are scented too. So sad it dried up on me. Well, I have a few more of the other colors to use, and for the price, they are easily irreplaceble.
Lastly an Pink Tease €1 Lipstick, wich I picked up at the Dutch Big Bazar. For an in depth post about these, click <here>. Love these lipstcks, this color not so much. Used mostly with other not so favorite lipsticks.' 
' That's it! See you al in May!'

Reviews ~ Freeman Masks (Trekpleister, Kruidvat, De Tuinen NL)

'Time for trying my Freeman Masks. I have 3 to discuss, so let's get started. Depending for wich one you go, De Tuinen (Dutch Healthstore) has a better variety of scents. Kruidvat and Trekpleister (both Dutch drugstores) sell these temporary.'

'The First one is the Clay Mask Mint&Lemon. The consistency is not to thick, and spreads evenly. It smells slightly like lemon, and the mint makes the skin fresh and cold. The minty scent is there too, but not overpowering. It looks green. After 15-20 minutes the consistency hardens on the skin, and got cracked. When it crack, the skin feels like pulling together. After rinsing it off, my skin feels way better, smooth and soft. This mask defenately does the job. If it clears my heavy breakouts around my lips and on my chin, we will find out after a few other applications, but my skin looks and feels better after one treatment allready.'
Just slapped the mask on
Looking like an reptile after 15-20 minutes

'The Dead Sea Minerals Mask is thicker, and because of that, I had too use way less then the previous one. This consistency was a little harder to get out the bottle too. Even if I spread out a thin layer, I look like a smurf as you can see. After 10-15 minutes the clay cracked a little, but not too clearly like the Mint Mask. Also after that time, my skin feels a little dry after rinsing it off, so a good cream is recommended after using this. Then the scent. In my opinion it smells really fresh and clean, and there's nothing wrong with that. Like a lot clay masks this one pulls together too, but not so heavingly like the minty one.'
Just slapped the mask on
After 10-15 minutes

'Peel Off Mask Cucumber. This mask is very fresh. After slapping it on, you should be overrated with a fresh breeze, lol. The consistency is a bit thick, with an see through color. After the mask dried, you can start peeling it off. It feels a bit tight, but after pulling the skin a bit by opening your mouth, the mask comes off easily. It's recommended to spread the mask evenly, cause when you put on too much, it won't dry fast. I think it's an good idea to use an brush for the application of this mask, cause the consisteny may a bit sticky, wich makes it tricky to spread nice. Overall I think this is a nice mask to relax with. It´s not that you need to peel it off, you can also take a wash cloth to do the job.'
Just slapped the mask on
After 15-20 minutes you got snake skin

´So far my masks in depth. I think Freeman did a good job with their masks. You have value for money, and I will defenately purchase a few of their others.´

Projects ~ On My Nails : Sally Hansen Salon Manicure in Gilty Party

'Today on my nails: Sally Hansen Salon Manicure Nailpolish in color Gilty Party. Please don't mind my short nails at this point. Like I said earlier, I broke a nail, and was forced to cut them down. I bought my Sally Hansen polishes at the Dutch Action, for only 0,99. A real bargain, but you need to be quik, because I think they are temporary there.'

'I used for Gilty Party two coats. The consistency is a bit thin, but goes on smooth. It's a gold foil- ish color with a sheen of silver and red microglitter. The red microglitter (not catched on camera, sadly enough) made me buy this color. Normally I buy such colors around Christmas, but I think this pretty one will do also great in the sunshine. So I will wear this around summertime/ springtime too. I love it. If so much shine is too much for you, you can wear this color as an accent nail too. Also loved by me: the Salon Manicure polishes are quikdrying.'

Purchases ~ Nail Wheel Galore (Big Bazar, Bargain Alert)

'Past weekend, I was in the Big Bazar. Again. I found nail wheels for only 1,29, and there are two of them in a pack. So you can swatch 40 nailpolishes for 1,29. Or practise 40 times your nail arts.'

'The wheels are from plastic, and you can't see though these. They are a cream color. I picked four packs, so I can swatch 160 nailpolishes. I want to make swatches from my Catrice polishes soon.'

Reviews ~ Hema Moisturizing Lipstick #08

'I heard good things abouth the lipsticks from the Dutch Hema, so I decided to pick up one of their Moisturizing ones. I choose #08, a pinky (lilacy) nude color. The lipstick doesn't have a name, and was €3.'

'The lipstick feels really soft on my lips. The finish should be like MAC's luster finishes, however I have no MAC lipsticks so I guess it's like their lusters. (according to peeps on Youtube and what not) Personally I like to have a more intense, creamy or matte finish. I love the color, and I think this color is perfect for everyday. It's also awesome for those days you don't want to be in the spotlights. The package is pretty simple. For €3 it shouldn't be a big deal, but if I really want a good bargain to try colors, I prefer my 1 lipsticks from Pink Tease.'

Purchases ~ Facing My Skin (Hema, Action, De Tuinen)

'My skin is very bad right now. Around my lips there is a slight trace of acne. Not that everybody wants to know that. Time to treat myself with a few other skin products bought from different stores.'

'The Freeman ClayMask with Lemon and Mind I found at a Dutch health store called De Tuinen. Normally Freeman Masks are there around €6, now I paid €4,87 for it. I didn't found this particular mask at Trekpleister or Kruidvat. Like the package tells, this one is perfect for me. It clears breakouts.
Then from Dutch shop Hema, I got this cleansing mousse. The blue liquid will turn into a mousse, and the product comes with a pump. It was, €2,95.
Lastly these Coconut Care Facial Whipes for only €0,79. I bought this at the Action, and I bought the Coconut Care Handcream earlier, so I will see how this works. I don't have the best times with facial whipes.'

Purchases ~ Sally Hansen €0,99 Bargain Alert (Action)

'At my local Dutch Action, I found the Sally Hansen Salon Manicure and the Xtreme wear Nailpolishes. I couldn't resist and made a purchase. At first I bought these four. However, I got bummed, because one of the Salon Manicure bottles didn't have a brush. I'm not sure what the deal was about that. I returned, and got myself another bottle of that Jaded color. I didn't had the receipt, so I couldn't return the bottle. And why should I kept the receipt for such a bargain? I can assume that every nailpolish have at least a brush, right? Especially when the bottles are sealed...'

'I returned  for another bottle of Jaded, and came home with a shitload of other colors, the new Jaded bottle included. So, here are all my purchased colors. I made before I returned, a swatch of Xtreme Wear color Kiwi Bikini, and whore this color allready. I planned to made more On My Nails swatches, but before I had the change, I ripped one of my finger nails, so I was forced to cut my nails down. I will do the other swatches later on. So far I like the formula of the Xtreme Wear polishes. I got away with two coats of Kiwi Bikini here. One coat will do also.'
