Best of 2017 – skincare

Versiunea în limba română a acestui articol o găsiți aici.

I heard about Korean skincare products for a long time but I always felt so lost when I wanted to try something from them. But 2017 was the year where I started digging around the Internet and discovered the beautiful effects of Korean skincare routine.

I will mention the products in the order I’m using them in my skincare routine and when I’m using them (evening or morning). You will notice I have no face cream on this list and that’s because I didn’t find one this year to really impress me.

My skin type: normal skin with oily T zone + melsama around the eyes (problem appeared about 2 years ago).

essie spa many many mani intensive hand lotion (20ml)

I got it in travel size with an essie base coat. At first I liked it a lot, but for the winter I found it so annoying. It didn’t hydrate as much as I would have liked and you can’t apply 2 layers of it because it starts to ball on your skin.

Repurchase: no.

Brand Focus – Balea – Part 1

If you’ve never heard about the brand balea I will assume you’ve never been in a dm store.  Balea is one for the home brands of dm and, in general, they have good quality products with a very small price tag. Picking something from them can be quite overwhelming, so here’s the first part of reviews to help you make up your mind.

PS: For the products below:

  • as a plus, in general, it will be the price (unless I say otherwise)
  • as a minus, in general, it will be the packaging. Most of the time it’s no problem for me (as long as it doesn’t make the product itself impractical), because I understand that you can’t have affordable and good products, with fancy packaging. But I know many people dislike they’re packaging and call it cheap

Anti-Haul #1

If you don’t know what this article is about, please go and watch this video. I think Kimberly Clark was the person who invented this type of video (don’t quote me on that. I didn’t do much research about it). I really like the idea because we always get “bombarded” with new products that claim they’re the best you’ve ever seen. My intention is this article you’re reading right now, to be the first of my new category. I think it will make people a bit more aware of what they’re actually spending their money on or if they should do it at all.

Also, please don’t get me wrong! If you own any of the products/ brands named below, don’t get offended. I just don’t think they would be something I need at the moment.

Makeup: Where to spend and where to save

Versiunea în limba română a acestui articol o găsiți aici.

This article was inspired by the youtuber Anna. Last week she made a video with exactly the same title, which I found just perfect and so I decided to “adopt” it. She’s one of my favorite vloggers and I thought this is a good way to tell you about my all time favorite makeup products. Also, this way, you can see my mindset when it comes to buying makeup.
