I'm a girl who loves beauty products, even though I haven't always been very keen on them, so I decided to start a beauty blog, where I share beauty product reviews with others and tell you about both the worst and best beauty products out there, according to me.

I'm also hoping it will make beauty and makeup more fun, even for those who are not beauty addicts already.

Review: L'Occitane One Minute Hand Scrub

Another gem from my recent L'Occitane loot is definitely the One Minute Hand Scrub. I believe I have mentioned my notoriously dry hands in the winter here on the blog before, but this winter (well, it's actually still fall where I am but anyway) I decided to try something new, besides all the hand creams I consume, so I really wanted to try the L'Occitane One Minute Hand Scrub.
Now, while this product does not have one of those amazing scents L'Occitane is famous for (I was a bit disappointed about that as I love their scents), it is a really nice product, as it manages to both exfoliate and soften my hands at the same time.

I am not sure what exactly I was expecting of the One Minute Hand Scrub, as I am pretty used to being disappointed in hand products, but it certainly lived up to all my expectations and more!

So I will definitely keep using this one all through the winter and repurchase when I run out!

Review: L'Occitane Neroli & Orchidee Collection De Grasse Eau de Toilette

I also mentioned before that I bought a lot of L'Occitane products recently, so let's break up the Laline product reviews with a L'Occitane one, shall we?

Among the things I got was a scent, the L'Occitane Neroli & Orchidee Collection De Grasse Eau de Toilette, as I tried it out in the store and thought it smelled amazing.
And after having used this scent a couple of times, I still really like it, as it does not smell too perfumey, but is rather a very faint, yet charming scent, not overpowering or strong, but it does linger for quite long. The longevity is perhaps not the best, but keeping in mind that it is a Eau de Toilette and not a perfume, I think it is okay.
I will also say that it is a very summery scent, though, so I suspect I won't be using it too much during the winter, but I definitely look forward to next summer when I will be able to wear it on a day to day basis, and since the weather where I live is still pretty summery, I do believe I will try to use it a couple of times more before winter is here for real.

I would definitely purchase this scent again!

Review: Laline Cherry Blossom Body Scrub

So I mentioned recently that I had bought quite a lot of Laline products, and now it is time for the first Laline review.

I decided to give the Laline Cherry Blossom Body Scrub a try first, as I honestly needed a really good scrub (sorry if TMI!).

And this body scrub really does the job really well!
It is kind of a rough scrub, not the gentle kind, but I personally like that, but it might make this scrub less suitable for those with sensitive skin.
Everything I wanted off, came off easily, and my skin felt strangely moisturized, yet not sticky and gross afterwards, and that is pretty rare for me. I find it rather easy to find body scrubs that scrub well, but not as easy to find something that does not leave me with some weird residue. But the Laline Cherry Blossom Body Scrub does and doesn't!

So basically I was very pleased with this body scrub, especially since the Cherry Blossom scent was really pleasant too, so I will definitely be considering this scrub again when I need a new one!

Comin up on the blog: Several L'Occitane reviews

The day after I went for a shopping spree at Laline, I went a bit beserk at a L'Occitane store as well, so I am pleased to announce that I will be publishing several reviews of different L'Occitane products here on the blog in the upcoming days as well!
Stay tuned!

Coming up on the blog: Several Laline reviews

You see, I shopped quite a bit at Laline the other day and am in the midst of trying the products I got out at the moment. So I do believe I will have some opinions to share about these products very, very soon!

Review: Dior Purifying Cleansing Milk

The Dior Purifying Cleansing Milk was somewhat of an impulse buy on StrawberryNet (anyone else make those?), and I must say I love Dior products due to how pretty they look in your bathroom, this cleanser being no exception. However, this cleanser definitely has both pros and cons, in my opinion, so let me tell you about both.
- It did not break out my rather oily skin, which is something I can't take for granted with most cleansing milks, unfortunately, so I was very happy about that!
- The cleansing milk itself has a lovely, clean and basic texture and feel. Not greasy and annoying like some cheaper brands tend to.
- The bottle is just useless, it is really hard to get anything out and some pieces fell off when I first opened it. The bottle is so poorly made, however, that I am thinking that maybe the one I got was somehow defective, but as I do not know that for a fact, I will just say that the bottle is definitely not one of my favorite ones.
- This product does seem a tad overpriced for me. I know it's Dior and all, and you pay just as much for the name as for the product, but still...

Also worth noting
- This cleanser does not really have a specific scent, which may be a good thing, according to some, and a bad thing, according to some. With cleansers I personally do not have a preference regarding this, so just sayin'...

Would I buy the Dior Purifying Cleansing Milk again?
Hmmm... probably not. It's not a fantastic product, and there are some truly amazing similar products out there, after all, so I would probably stick to those...

Review: L'Occitane Lavande Liquid Soap

Around a month or so ago, I went on quite a L'Occitane binge, and one of the things I got on this binge was a L'Occitane Lavande Liquid Soap, that I ended up using as a hand soap in my guest bathroom.

And I must say, I absolutely love this soap! The scent is gorgeous and very lavender-y, so it is just what I wanted!
Since I have pretty sensitive hands, a fact I think I have mentioned here on the blog previously as well, I also appreciate the fact that this soap is very gentle and does not dry your hands out at all.

The texture also feels very rich and luxurious, so while this is "only" a hand soap, it is definitely one of the better ones I have ever tried and I will most definitely be buying it again!

So to summarize: Love, love, love! Basically.
