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.

I can't believe I forgot this on my wishlist!

(that I just published)

Since this is actually the main product I want to try right now:
Ciate Caviar Manicure

It just looks amazing! But I doubt I could do this on my own, but perhaps my salon could give me a hand if I decide to buy the set?

Review: Victoria's Secret Love Spell Refreshing Body Mist

I like scents from Victoria's Secret, but my favorite scent by them is by far Love Spell. Basically, the scent consists of cherry blossom and peach, and it smells just divine if you ask me. The Refreshing Body Mist is lighter than a perfume or eau de cologne of course, but it actually feels really great on your skin, and the scent lasts for surprisingly long.

I have been using the Body Mist for a couple of weeks now, and what I usually do is to spray some on in the morning, before going to work and then adding some actual perfume (from the same range) in the afternoon if I feel it's needed. Works great!

So if you want to try a new scent from Victoria's Secret, I can definitely recommend Love Spell, and if you are wondering if the Refreshing Body Mist works - it does!

On my wish list right now

I am constantly saving stuff on my computer, since I need to plan what products I get, so I don't end up with too many duplicates. (Believe me, this has happened quite a few times over the years!)

Some of top items on my wishlist right now are:
Bliss That's Incredi-peel! Spa Strength Re-surfacing Pads, since I am a huge Bliss fan and have had such great results with their products before. So I am always looking for more Bliss products to try!

L'Occitanes Almond Delightful Shape cream. I am not sure it will work wonders on smoothing skin etc., but a friend of mine absolutely swears by this, and I know it smells absolutely amazing!

Dior's Addict Lip Glow Color Awakening Balm, because I love trying new lip balms, and this one seems like the most intriguing one out of the ones I haven't had a chance to try yet.

Just ordered

Like a lot of people, I understand that cellulite is a part of life and that no creams and chemical cures can probably do anything about it if you have it. Still, being such a huge Bliss fan and having read many amazing reviews about the Bliss FatGirlSlim range, I decided to order the FatGirlFaves set from ASOS today.
During the summer I spend so much time exposing my legs that it's normal to become a bit selfconscious about them, so I figured it was worth a shot. So expect a review on FatGirlFaves shortly!

MAC Skin Refresher, Prep + Prime Skin Base and Cleanse Off Oil

So I have been getting accquainted with quite a few new MAC products lately. (Read previous reviews here, here and here)
One of the most interesting things to try for me was the Skin Refresher Spray, the Prep + Prime Skin Base and the Cleanse Off Oil that was sold to me in a set:
This is because I had never used sprays on my skin before applying make up before, so I was interested to know if there was actually any use to that. And while I have tried primers (like the Prep + Prime Skin Base) before, I must say I do not use them regularly.

I was very pleasantly surprised by the Skin Refresher Spray, I thought it would not have a very long lasting impact, but after having used it for a couple of weeks, I actually think it does. It leaves your skin very moist and fresh looking which I love. So I will definitely be getting another one of these sprays once I run out of this one! (which won't take that long, I think, since I have been using it every day since I got it, and the bottle I bought was a small one to begin with)
Like I said, I am by no means a primer expert, but I must say the Prep + Prime Skin Base worked wonders too. It smooths your skin instantly (and leaves it that way), but still doesn't make the skin look greasy or oily, which I love. So definitely a good buy as well, and I think I will be buying this Skin Base again as well.
The worst product out of the bunch was by far the Cleanse Off Oil. Which isn't to say it was very bad, actually. But it just does the job, nothing more, nothing less. But since I suppose that is what a Cleanse Off Oil is supposed to do anyway, I would still say it's good. It does what it promises, after all.

I guess I just got so much more than I expected with the other two products that the Cleanse Off Oil not being anything out of the ordinary was a bit of a dissapointment...
But if you have a chance to buy this set (I believe it is a travel set), it is definitely a great purchase, so go for it! I am so happy I did!
