Review - The Body Shop Peppermint Intensive foot rescue

So by now you've probably figured out that I like The Body Shop a LOT! ^^ When you have a friend that works there it's hard not to get sucked in haha

Anyways! This is a new summerstaple for me!

TBS says:
First aid for feet! Now with grape acids to work even harder to soften hard skin, while you sleep. Provides an overnight moisture serge to target dry cracked heels so you can wake up to softer, smoother skin.

I say: OH YES YES YES! When we walk in our flip flops and ballerina shoes that really don't have any kind of soft base (what's it called?) for our feet our heels tend to get very hard and cracked. Doesn't help when you go in the water aswell. So we need this! I use it when I've taken a bath or shower at night time and scrubbed my feet. When I wake up in the morning my feet feels so much softer and doesn't hurt (cracked heels hurt sometimes!). It feels cooling and the peppermint scent hangs on a while and I love that!
Love it 5/5

Review - The Body Shop´s Vitamine E Face Mist

I have a friend that's works at The Body Shop and she says she CAN*T live without this product. So she gave me one. (Thank you ^^)

What The Body Shop says:
A quick skin pick-me up and excellent for setting make-up. Spritz it on for instant refreshment, moisture, and protection. With a delicate rosewater scent.

What I say:
It's absolutely a pick-me up, but on the other hand which face mist isn't?? 
It is excellent for setting your make-up. I've found that it actually makes a huge difference on me. I haven't been using it during the last couple of days and my make-up lasted for a good 3 hours less than when I use it, so that's a big + and proof of it actually working. 
The scent is very refreshing aswell =)

Great setting/pick-me up face mist! I can honestly say that it beats the crap out of my MAC Fix+. It's equally great as my Make Up Store Face mist though =)
(I have oily skin)

New goodies from Boots..

So I tweeted during friday that I had gotten some goodies from Boots.. Here they are =)

I know! I just posted a Current hair care post, but I'm running out of my L´anza' shampoo so when I saw that Boots had an offer going on their Botanics haircare I thought why not. It was "buy a botanics shampoo of your choice and get the conditioner for free" - a great offer in other words. So I went for the shimmering blonde ones, I thought it would be perfect for summer, to help get some more healthy glow in my hair. Have only tried it once and didn't notice anything really, but it was a nice pair of shampoo and conditioner so I will continue to use it and hopefully the shimmer might show up ^^

The wipes I mainly got beacause I was out of my Nivea pure&natural ones, and these are good for oily skin, which I have. So again "why not". The pore strips I also got because I'm out of my Nivea ones ^^

Have any of you guys tried these products?? How did you like them ?? =)

Review - CLINIQUE Lash power Mascara long wearing formula..

This is the first and only Clinique mascara I've ever tried. First I was impressed, my lashes looked so nice, but then it failed =/

What Clinique says:

Winner of the Look Magazine Mascara Awards for Best Waterproof Mascara. 
Vows to look pretty for 24 hours without a smudge or smear. One stroke and these pretty lashes last through rain, sweat, humidity, tears. Yet the formula removes easily with warm water. Unique brush reaches and beautifully lengthens even the tiniest of lashes. Ophthalmologist tested, too.
  • Benefits: Long Wearing
What I say:
Yay, it's an awardwinning mascar, great for Clinique.. I however can't see how it could win =/ OK, if they only judge the waterproof part of the mascara I can see how it won.. For me it dries so clumpy and the clumps fall off so I'm left with not that full black lashes. So the vow to look pretty for 24 hours is shot to..... It doesn't smudge or smears but it doesn't stay on your lashes so it's hard to smudge and smear, right?! (It does look good for about 2 hours on me..)Now there is one thing I like about the mascara, the brush! Really easy to use =)

If you've tried this mascara and it works for you, then great! It just didn't work well for me. The thing I hate most is when mascaras fall off, crumbles as you wear it, it's just awful!

Current Hair care products...

My hair is naturally very frizzy/dry, it's thick and it's curly. So I need moisturizing products for my hair so it doesn't break and looks like a birds nest ^^ This is what I use at the moment (style products not included)..

TRESemmé Heat defence styling spray - I use this smoothing heat spray to protect my hair when blowdrying or straightning. Makes my hair really soft and shiny.
TBS Banana Conditioner - This conditioner is my new fave conditioner ( I also love the TRESemmé anti breakage), I love the smell of it, I love the feel of it, I love how it makes my hair soft and moisturized, I just love it =)
L´anza' Hair repair Shampoo - My hairdresser gave this to me (with the conditioner, I used it all up ^^) after I sat in her chair for more than 3 hours (she freakin' chopped half of my hair hehe) and it's a moisturizing and healing shampoo. I like it a lot, makes my hair soft and I feel it's actually stronger now. If it's because of this one product or all om them together I don't know, But I know it works somehow =)
L´anza' Healing strenghth silk serum - I put this through all of my hair (remember I have frizzy hair so I can't get away with just putting it in my ends) and it helps with the frizz and strenghth of my hair..

I would do a styling product post, the only thing is I basically only use the Swartzkopf OSIS+ Dustit when styling my hair. I use it when I feel I need more volume. I usually just straighten my hair or just keep it wavy/curly, when doing that I only need the heat defence and serum.. =) Even when I had my long hair =)

So when I took pictures of my Top 10 blushes ( yes coming up in near future^^ ) and swatched them I noticed that MAC's MSF in Stereo Rose and MAC's Springsheen blush were very similar.. SO similar that I have a hard time seeing which is which ^^ So I thought I have to share this incredible discovery =)

Stereo Rose MSF + Springsheen blush

I'm gessing that some of you missed out when MAC's repromoted the very hiped up MSF in Stereo Rose. Don't worry or hold your breath til it comes out again, just go pick up Springsheen blush instead! =)

The similarity is 99% I would say. Stereo Rose has a slightly more pink/cooler sheen and Springsheen has a slightly more golden/warmer sheen. Other than that thery're identical!!

Unfortunately I couldn't take good swatchpictures of them =( You will have to make due with this picture of the actuall blushes.. I'm gessing though that Temptalia has some great swatches of them =)

Everyday "foundation rutine"

So ever since I got my VitaZing tinted moisturizer from ORIGINS it's what I've been using everyday for work and stuff like that. It's such a great t.m but it's not as all the other t.m.. It's has a tiny bit more coverage and it stays on very well. I have oily/combination skin and it stays for a good 7-8 hours. =)

MU Remover tip - TBS Camomile Gentle Eye Make up remover (great for your kit)

This eye make up remover is a gentle perfume free really easy to use remover. It comes in a 250ml(8.4 us fl oz) bottle and costs 110SEK ( around US$17 & UK £10 - but I'm gessing it's way cheaper in the US).

You only need a cotton pad with this remover on in, let it sit on the eye for a few seconds and then just gently swipe away your make up. This is not made for removing waterproof make up, however it does that too. Just let it sit on your eyes a few seconds more and it works perfectly!

This is the remover I use in my professional kit. It's cheap and works great, it's perfume free, which is very important, you never know when you're gonna do make up on a client who is allergic. Of course you can ask your client (you should ask) but they might not know yet if they are allergic to heavy perfumed products. It's better to be safe than sorry ! ;)

MAC Nail Lacquer - Mischievous Mint

Finally Blogger works again!! I've wanted to show you this the last coupple of days!

MACs Nail Lacquer in Mischievous Mint, is a really cool pastelly mint color, I LOVE IT!

I don't remember  what the collection is called but it's the colorfull "asian one" ? :/
The polish is creamy,covers and holds up nicely with 2 coats. Awesome polish! MAC has really stepped it up with their polishes.. Not that I own a lot of them but I've heard some not so good things and my first polish was great but didn't hold up well, completely different story now ^^

MAC Nail Lacquer - Little girl type

The lavender color from the new collection from  MAC I immediately just had to have.. It's gorgeous!!

Review - ORIGINS Checks and balances frothy face wash

"When it comes to faces with dry and oily places, it takes a clever cleanser to balance the two. This gentle, frothy face wash carefully does both jobs without canceling each other out. Broad Leaf Kelp Extract discourages excess oil production, while Wheat Protein balances and protects dry prone zones. And Tourmaline actually makes water wetter to more easily disperse dirt and sebum down the drain. There’s also aromatic Bergamot, Spearmint and Lavender to add pleasure to the process. Skin feels comfortably refreshed after cleansing, never tight, pulled or parched."

I say:
This face wash does exactly what they say it does! It balance my combination skin, leaving my dry areas moisturized and my oily areas not oily. When I use this my skin feels freshened and clean and I don't know how to explain it but I feel that it has worked it's magic after every time I use it, I can almost feel it working on my skin hehe.. As I said it leaves my skin feeling clean and soft even if it feels like it's still wokring on my skin after I washed it off.. It also feels nicely cooling when you use, almost like it's camling your skin down..

You don't need a lot of product, a peasize is really enough for you entire face! So it lasts a long long time, I only have a 20ml sample and it has lasted me for months (haven't used it eveyday though but still, I have been using it on and off every 2 weeks or so), with a full size, I wouldn't be surprised if it lasts someone almost half a year.. It smells fantastic, kinda' minty..

If you have combination oily skin I really recommend you try it, ask for a sample, or buy it and if you don't like it give it to someone who might.. But I'm 99% sure that you will like it! ;P

I don't know where they sell Origins in stores in the US but you can buy it online HERE.. Also if you buy it online you get to choose a free sample of a pruduct, right now you have the option of a 5ml sample of their best selling GinZing eye cream that has been talket about by many..

In the UK you can't buy it HERE and in stores, I think I baught my first Balanced diet moisturiser at John Lewis in London.

March-April Faves!!

I know I haven't blogged in a while but I've been really busy!! It's been crazy!! But I'm back, I hope everyone had a great easter (I had the best) those of you who celebrate it.. On to my faves for this month and march, I didn't do a faves post for march so I figured I just do both months now.. There's a lot of products so bare with me!! =)

Bare minerals Original foundation - My skin has been a mess the last month with breakouts and all that so I've been trusting my mineral foundation to not make my skin worse and maybe better..

The Body Shop Tea tree face mask - Awesome when you get breakouts!!! (review here)

Origins Checks and balances frothy face wash - Great cleanser for combination/oily skin.. It's my favorite ever.. (review here)..

Nivea Summer beauty body lotion - I absolutely hate the fake tan look and the dreadful smell of it. BUT I like the gradual tan body moisturizers, they don't smell bad and gives you a natural gradual tan and you don't feel all fake.. Love this one!

Nivea pure&natural hand cream - just the best ever!! (review here)

MAC blush Ombre Ripe peach (LE) - Perfect spring blusher! If you can get your hands on it through CCOs or something get it!! Perfect peach, true peach color!!

MAC Vanilla eyeshadow - Best highlight ever.. Just a fact! (I've just hit pan)

Make up store Vanilla pencil eyeliner - Great for neutrulizing the redness of the waterline and make your eyes appear brighter..

MAC Paint pot Constructivist - I've become more of a neutral girl lately, don't know why but Constructivist is the base I've been using, it's a perfect darker brown!

Illamasqua nail varnish Jan - Gorgeous spring color, kinda' a dusty off  lilac pink, Love it! Illamasqua is my favorite Nail polish brand, unfortunately it's kinda' hard to get your hands on here, so I only have this color..

The Body Shop Banana conditioner - I love banans, the fruit, the smell, the taste, banana candy, banana everything! This conditioner is really moisturising and leaves you hair soft and nice smelling! great summer conditioner!!

Swarzkopf OSIS+ Dust it - great for a little volume in your roots when you don't want to teeze..

Tressemé Heat defence spray - just a reallly nice heat protectant.. Makes your hair smell nice and feel soft and silky. The price makes it even better!
