Kruidvat Hand Sanitizer: So if you are a clean freak like I am you will understand. No matter where I am or where I go I need to have hand sanitizer with me. I always have one standing on my desk and one in my handbag. Some essentials in my handbag (when I have to travel some distance) are off course hand sanitizer, baby/makeup wipes, tissues, cue tips etc. Some of my closest friends still get surprised of what I have in my handbag no matter how small my bag is.😛 I like the Glycerona one more because it actually smells nice and has Aloe Vera in it. The downside is that they only come in bottles of 100ml which I carry with me in my handbag but for my desk I need a bigger bottle and the Kruidvat sanitizer contains 250ml. If anyone has any recommendations one that is nourishing and smells nice comment this below because for me it’s an essential.
Garnier Purifying Cleansing Gel: First time trying this and for my skin it did not had an aftereffect. It claims that it mattifies and refines the pores. It does mattifies after cleansing but because my skin also gets drier in the colder times it REALLY feels drier. I wanted to try something new so I just gave a drugstore product the chance. When I bought this I did not see that it contained green tea but I know that green tea dries the skin out even more. Green tea is good for drinking to hydrate but skin care is a whole different story. It does also contains mooring which has a lot of vitamins in it but I would not repurchase this. I want to be clear that this is all based on my own experience and on my skin type which is oily/combination skin.
Kruidvat Cleansing Gel: The product contains lotus extract and low vera. From this line (normal/combination skin) I already use the face scrub and I like that because it’s mild but not to the extant that I don’t feel any beads. Some face scrub contain beads so small that you can’t even feel it and some don’t contain any at all but I don’t like that feeling. This cleansing gel is an oke drugstore product and if you are on a budget or just beginning with skin care (teens) I would definitely recommend this but if you are not I would try looking for something better. To be able to have good makeup you need to have good skin care and good skin care leads to good skin right.
Nivea Q10 Plus Anti-Wrinkle Day Cream: This is also a day cream and I really like this one. It’s affordable and etos/kruidvat from time-to-time they have this 1+1 deal, it contains SPF, I like the consistency and I like the smell as well. I have nothing bad to say about this product because I’ve also repurchased it already several times. When I want something lighter but still use foundation I’d mix this with my foundation and it’s perfect for those days when you want want something light but yet coverage on the face. Also when you mix a moisturizer with your foundation you will get this luminous glow on your face.
Niveau Q10 Plus Anti-Wrinkle Night Cream: Yes I use the day and night set. Not much to say about the night cream. The consistency is thick but bearable. It moisturizes and that all I need. Also this is good for people on a budget but there are definitely better products out on the market.
Syoss Repair Therapy Hair Conditioner: So for the longest time last year I experienced a lot with my hair and dyed it a lot, used hot tools WAYYY too much and because it”s 2015 I decided to cut down aa bit. I picked up this product probably last year December and used this until now meaning about 3/4 months with 500ml. I’ve tried Syoss shampoo before and it just dried out my hair even more and lost shine but that was a very long time ago. I needed a conditioner to repair and I think I found a perfect working product. If you have really dry/damaged hair like I had, still have a little but it’s been much better and healthier, I recommend this product to you guise. your hair gets much smoother after applying this and way easier to comb. in my experience I did noticed a bit of a difference. Some might say that shampoos/conditioner for damaged hair don’t work but we all know in general conditioner smoothens out your hair so that it’s easier to comb maybe that’s also why I noticed a difference. IF my hair needs a boost again I would definitely choose for this Syoss repair therapy hair conditioner again.
Organix Argan Oil & Shea Butter: After the salon my niece worked at did stock up on ”D’argan Fluid Cristal Argan Oil” anymore I had to look for a new hair oil and at that time Organix became very popular especially the shampoos. Now I’m not too font about the shampoos but this hair oil definitely became my favorite hair oil. It contains organ oil & shea butter which makes the consistency a bit thicker which is what I like my hair oil to be. I would not like for my hair oil to have the cooking oil consistency. I also like that it comes in a pump flagon. It does not feel sticky at all and gives your hair a bit of a shine. I’ve used up 2 of these bottles already so I can definitely recommend it.
Vaseline Essential Moisture (aloe) bodylotion: This is my first bottle of this Vaseline moisturizer and I really like it. It’s not sticky, light as it claims, smells good, contains aloe vera and moisturizes. It makes the skin so smooth. I’ve tried their spray bottle already and I like that more because it’s spray and go but I feel like that goes up way faster. Is it because I use it more often or is it because it does not contain as much as printed on the bottle? You tell me…😝
Dove Deeply Nourishing shower gel: Nothing special about this product. It’s an oke nourishing shower gel which can be used everyday. The sense isn’t too strong, very mild that’s why it’s an everyday shower gel I’d say.
Maybelline Baby Lips Pink Glow: Baby lips have been a hype for a long time now the topic seems like it has been vanished but I really like it though. I have been using this products for months now and finally I can add this to my empties series. It moisturizes but what I like it that it does has a bit of a tint so if I don’t feel like wearing lipstick or gloss which is rarely I just apply this. Also before applying lipstick I applied some baby lips as well to moisturize it. It’s just a product I don’t have negative things to say about.
Essence Stay Natural Concealer: I’ve used up some makeup as well. This time these are 2 concealers of essence ”03 soft nude & 04 Soft Honey”. When on a budget or when you don’t need much I like these concealers but otherwise I’d expend just a little bit more about €4/5,- to invest in a better concealer such as the ”wake me up” or ”true match” concealers.
Hema Brown Eyebrow Gel: I’ve been using this for years now. It does what an eyebrow gel does and it does stays in place all day long. A product that you can pick up for only €3,75 it’s perfect, I like. There are 3 colours to choose from, clear, brown and grey even though the employees say it does not makes a huge difference, I’m not too sure about that. I’ve used the clear once only once and stepped over to brown. I’m not too sure why anymore but I like the one I’m using currently so if you want something affordable try it because it basically does what it has to do.
