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: CK One Shock for Her Shower Gel

It's time to review a shower gel again!

This time, I'll tackle CK One's Shock for Her shower gel, and let me start this review by saying that I generally tend to love Calvin Klein scents (I am a huge fan of the regular CK One, for instance). And this scent is nice, too. However, I don't think it is as memorable as some other Calvin Klein scents I have had the pleasure of trying before.

This shower gel is really nice to use after you do sports, let's say and want to smell really fresh and clean. I can somehow imagine this in gym locker rooms quite easily.

For me, however, the CK One Shock for Her is just too boring of a scent, so I don't think I will be getting the actual scent, but I am still happy I gave it a try and I will definitely be using the rest of this after workouts!

Review: Roses de Chloe shower gel

Another shower gel review, that is actually really a scent review (like the previous 2 as well), since I got these shower gels mostly to get acquainted with the scents, in order to figure out if I should buy the perfumes or not.
This time, I will tell you what I thought of Chloe's Roses de Chloe.

And to sum it up (because why beat around the bush too much, am I right?): I pretty much loved it! I do love rose scents, after all, and I knew from previous experiences that I would probably like Chloe scents, too. (My sister has been wearing one of their scents for years, I believe, and it smells divine!)

But I was surprised how gentle and pretty this scent seemed. This makes it perfect for every day use, and for dates, if you ask me, and that's a pretty versatile scent, isn't it?

The bottle is just as pretty too, and I assume the actual perfume bottle would be even prettier, so I love the packaging too. The only complaint I have is that the scent doesn't stay for very long, but this is a common issue with shower gels, and does not necessarily reflect on the perfume, I think, so I think I will still be getting the perfume too.

Review: Gucci Premiere Shower Gel

Another shower gel I had the pleasure of trying recently was the Gucci Premiere one. I actually had had no previous experiences with Gucci perfumes or scents, until I gave this shower gel a try, so I didn't really know what to expect, but I can say that this rather heavy and luxurious scent definitely embodies the brand Gucci for me. It smells Italian, sexy and expensive, somehow.

The packaging is also very Gucci-esque, due to the pattern on the box, but even though the bottle is gold colored, I do think it looks a bit cheap due to the plastic it is made of. I would assume, however, that this is not the case if you get the actual perfume, but the shower gel packaging could definitely be reworked a bit, in order to feel more luxurious.

Some of the notes in the scent are said to be vintage champagne, orange blossom, musk, white flowers and leather (how fitting for a company that is so known for their leather products as Gucci is, right?), making this what I would definitely call an evening scent, for people who go to all kinds of fancy events in my mind.

I must admit, however, that this is not really my type of scent, as I am more of a light and fresh scent kind of a girl. So this scent did turn out a bit too heavy for my taste. It just doesn't fit me, I guess. I would probably like this scent on others, though, so its definitely not a matter of the Gucci Premiere not being a nice scent, because it totally is, just not a scent that fits me so well.

Due to this, I would probably not buy the Gucci Premiere shower gel again, nor will I be getting the perfume, but I am still glad I gave this a try. I did learn, after all, that as luxurious as Gucci scents are, they are not really what I look for in a scent. Good to know!

Review: Dolce & Gabbana Rose The One Shower Gel

A while ago, my to go to online store for all things beauty related - Strawberrynet - had a sale on a lot of stuff, including shower gels, so I decided to stock up on some, both because I actually needed new shower gels, but also because I think shower gels is an inexpensive way to get to know new scents, that you are not so familiar with, for a fraction of the cost it would cost to get the perfume itself. One of the shower gels I got during this promotion was Dolce & Gabbana's Rose The One shower gel. And I must say this was a very nice shower gel to try!

Now the gel itself is not anything spectacular. It's a normal shower gel, with a normal, yet working, texture and form. The bottle looks okay, but not like anything too fancy (which is actually something I would expect from a Dolce & Gabbana shower gel, so that is a bit of a downside, I guess), but the thing that sets this showergel apart from others is definitely the scent! It is just lovely in every possible way.

Of course the scent is rose based, as you might have guessed by the name already, but this is not your run of the mill rose scent. There is something very unique and beautiful about this scent, that is actually a bit hard to put into words.

But if I were to try, I would say this scent is both elegant and classy, yet a timeless scent at the same time. Definitely a winner in my book, and I do believe I shall be purchasing the actual perfume as well. So my shower gel experiment was off to a very good start!

Review: Kellogg's Frosted Flakes Lip Balm

When I saw that ASOS was selling Mad Beauty's Kellogg's Frosted Flakes Lip Balm, I knew I had to get one, in order to give it a try. I used to really like Frosties as a kid, and I loved the cute packaging too.

And I do think that the Kellogg's Frosted Flakes Lip Balm pleasantly surprised me. The texture is nice and creamy, the scent not too strong, yet nice, and the packaging is really cute in real life too. I wouldn't say this lip balm is the most moisturizing one I've ever tried, but it is definitely okay.

As a matter of fact, I liked this lip balm so much that I would definitely like to try other lip balms from the same range as well, such as the Cocoa Pops one, as well. So if you are a sucker for cute packaging and don't really need a heavy duty lip balm, I would definitely recommend that you give this one a try! I will definitely finish up mine, and might even get this again.

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...
