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: Aussie Long Luscious conditioner

I reviewed Aussie's Frizz Miracle Conditioner a while ago, but at the same time as I bought the Frizz Miracle Conditioner I also bought a conditioner from Aussie called Long Luscious, since I have both kind of frizzy hair, and really long hair. And now that I have tried both, I have to say these conditioners are pretty similar. They look exactly the same, smell exactly the same, and I cannot say that I noticed a big difference in my hair depending on which one I used.
So while I thought both conditioners were actually nice, I wouldn't say it matters a whole lot which one of them you use. But both conditioners are nice and well worth trying, I would say!

Review: Aussie Frizz Miracle Conditioner

As you may remember, I reviewed the Aussie Frizz Miracle Shampoo a while ago, but I also got the conditioner from the same range, and I wanted to share some thoughts on that as well.

My main impression of the conditioner is that it is actually pretty similar to the shampoo. The texture, color and even the scent is similar, and since I liked all those things about the shampoo, I like them in the conditioner as well, of course.
There is one major difference between the shampoo and the conditioner, however, and that is that the conditioner is not a product where a little goes a long way, so to speak. The shampoo is, I didn't have to use a lot of it to get good results, but I definitely need to do that with the conditioner. So that annoys me, and makes me like the conditioner less.

So while I would get the shampoo again, without a doubt, I am not so sure about this conditioner. Maybe just if I got a really good deal on it...

Review: Darphin Anti-fatigue Smoothing Eye Gel

Darphin is a French brand I had been hearing about for a while, but for some reason I never got around to trying any Darphin products. That is, until very recently, because now I have actually been using their Anti-fatigue Smoothing Eye Gel for a while, and I have to say I love it!
First of all, the scent of this eye gel is lovely, the texture just great as well, and the gel absorbs really fast, which I appreciate, because so many other eye products that I have tried don't. It also does reduce any signs of fatigue (as a new Mom, with a 5 week old, I do need that!) really well, so I will say this eye gel definitely lives up to its name!

I will definitely buy this eye gel again and it made me really eager to try more Darphin products as well. How come the French are so good at this stuff?

Review: Aussie Frizz Miracle Shampoo

The first time I tried Aussie hair products was more than a year and a half ago (read all about what my first experience with the brand was like here), and while I did like the product (not to mention my sister loves this brand and always raves about it), I didn't really buy it again since, for the simple reason that it is not sold where I live. But this week I noticed that my local pharmacy had actually started stocking this brand, so I decided to buy some more Aussie products. The first of those products, that I will be reviewing is their Aussie Frizz Miracle Shampoo, which is supposed to help anyone with frizzy hair get more manageable hair.
First of all, I have to say I love how this shampoo looks. And no, I don't mean the packaging, I mean the actual product that comes out of it. Because you see, it is really, really blue, which of course is very unusual, and I like unusual things, so I loved that. The texture and the scent is also nice, although not anything to get super excited about (but then again, this is the case with most shampoos), and I also really liked that you do not need to use a lot of this shampoo to get your hair clean. A little really goes a long way here, which might explain why the bottle is so small compared to most other shampoo bottles I buy.
I also do think that my hair has gotten smoother and more manageable since I started using this shampoo. So I actually do think that the Aussie Frizz Miracle Shampoo lives up to its claims!

The beauty product I am most looking forward to trying right now

Is actually Christian Louboutin's first beauty item, set to be launched really soon: Louboutin nail polish!
I actually highly doubt that this nail polish will be very different from most nail polishes (despite the rumored $50 price tag!) but I think the bottles will be a great addition to any collection, so if these polishes will be sold where I live (or in an online store that ships here), I will definitely get at least one bottle, just to try it.

Review: Patisserie de Bain Coconut Ice Bath & Shower Creme

I reviewed a bath & shower creme from Patisserie de Bain recently, but as I mentioned in the post about it, I actually got several shower cremes at the same time as that one. So its time to review another one of them! This time, I will tell you about another scent I really liked: the Coconut Ice one. You see, I do like coconut scents, but only in the summer. Somehow coconut is a really summery scent for me, so I cannot even imagine using coconut scented products in the winter.
Patisserie de Bain's Coconut Ice Shower Creme has a really nice coconut scent, not too strong or overpowering, just perfect. So I really liked the scent!
However, the bottle the bath & shower creme comes in is really not nice or convenient to use. So while the scent is definitely nice, I think there must be coconut scented shower gels and creams out there that come in better bottles, and I would definitely prefer those over this one!

Review: Beauticology Strawberry and Vanilla Truffle Body Wash

My first experience with Beauticology's body washes was a very positive one indeed (read all about that here), but sadly, the second scent I tried from Beauticology did not make me swoon as much.

The scent was called Strawberry and Vanilla Truffle, which sounds kind of yummy, and don't get me wrong or anything, it's not that this smells bad, it definitely doesn't. It's just a bit bland in comparison to the Decadent Milk Chocolate one, which is really something truly special and unique.
I definitely will use up the Strawberry and Vanilla Truffle Body Wash, but will probably not be sniffing myself obsessively afterwards, like I did with the Decadent Milk Chocolate one (if this is a good thing or a bad is up to you to decide!), and I am not in a rush to buy this again.
That said, the texture is just as lovely as it was in the first shower creme I tried, the bottle is user friendly and I do think this body wash is pretty good value for money. So should you happen to like the scent, I would definitely recommend you to buy this. I just happen to have another Beauticology favorite scent myself...
