Facials are workouts for your skin – Unknown

LRM_EXPORT_20180614_150403.jpg

I finally bought it! I have been dying to try out the Youthmud by Glamglow for ages!

I find it a bit expensive and that is why I put off buying it for so long. I was able to get this at 40% discount, thanks to my brother who had access to an Estee Lauder stocksale and brought this back for me.

What is the Youthmud by Glamglow exactly?

According to the Glamglow website the Youthmud is: A 10-minute professional ‘facial in a jar’ for behind-the-scenes use in Hollywood’s Entertainment, Music, Fashion & Award industries.

What does the Youthmud do?

It provides gentle resurfacing exfoliation and helps to leave skin smoother, brighter, and softer resulting in immediate camera-ready glowing skin for Men & Women, so you can get  your youthful Sexy Glow back in just 10 minutes.

What was my experience with this product?

Before putting on this product, I cleaned my face with some cleansing foam and scrubbed it with de L’oreal Kiwi Scrub .

I then put a thin layer all over my face, avoiding eyebrows, the eye-area and the lips. The first this I noticed was a stingy feeling. As I was putting this mask on, I felt it ‘burning’ more and more by the second. This is quite an uncomfortable feeling and for the first 5 minutes I had to wave a piece of cardboard along my face the whole time, so I would feel some kind of relieve. As the mud starts drying more and more, the ‘burn’ starts decreasing. After 10 minutes the mask was completely dry and I could barely move my face.

Glamglow recommends removing the mask in circular motions with warm water, so that by removing the mask, the skin gets a light scrub. It comes of quite easy and the scrub doesn’t hurt.

What’s the end result?

Right after removing the mask, my skin is quite red, but feels really smooth and soft. I’m definitely using it again as the result are amazing, so it’s worth the ‘burn’.

Have you tried this mask before?

L’Oreal Pure Sugar Scrub: First Impression

Exfoliation is key. It eliminates dead skin cells and polishes the skin, refines the pores and smoothens wrinkles 

New Image

L’Oréal has released new fruit-based facial- and lip-scrubs.

You can choose from 3 different ones:

  1. The Grapeseed scrub which promises to brighten dull skin.
  2. The Kiwi scrub, which supposedly purifies and unclogs pores for oily skin.
  3. The Cocoa scrub, which is designed to nourish dry skin.

Since I have been having quite some  ‘problems’ with my skin lately (a lot of impurities)and I decided to test the kiwi Scrub to see if this would really help.

I bought this at the store for €10,99.

The l’Oreal website promises the following:

kiwi scrub descriptionMy first impression:

The instructions say to start off by removing all make-up and clean the face, before using the scrub.

LRM_EXPORT_20180426_155700.jpg

While opening the scrub, the first thing you notice is the green color with little black pits in it. It looks just like a smashed up kiwi. The second thing is the smell. The scrub just has a really nice, fruity and fresh smell.

The feel of the scrub on my hands is kind of sticky, but in a nice way.

So off we go to the application of the scrub on my face. The instructions say to put a thin layer on my face, then add some tepid water and massage the whole face, with exception of the contour of our eyes. The scrub contains little sugar particles. You can feel them, but they are really gentle and it doesn’t hurt or burn the skin. It can also be used on the lips, so I decided to try that as well, right away. After massaging for some time, the scrub needs to be removed with tepid water.

So how does my face feel after using this scrub? My skin feels clean, bright and smoother. My lips also feel very soft and pink.

You’re supposed to use this 3 times a week to see good results. Am I going to use it more? The answer is yes, because I really liked the way my skin feels after the scrub. I do think this could be an easy and effortless way to take that little bit extra take of your skin in just 5minutes.

Let me know of you test it out!

The Super Stay Lipstick Collection By Maybelline

Give a woman the right lipstick and she can conquer the world – Unknown

Today I want to share with you my opinion on the new Super Stay Matte Ink lipstick from Maybelline. This is my opinion and in no way a sponsored post.

I went to the drugstore to get these and chose out 3 colors to test:

  • The ’05 – Loyalist’
  • The ’10 – Dreamer’
  • The ’40 – Believer’

The lipsticks were €9,90 each and there were about 7 colors.

The first color I chose was the 05, called Loyalist.

Fotor_151776320366689

This is a beautiful beige, nude color with no shine or glitter. It is one of the most beautiful nudes I have ever tried. It completes a classic, low-key look.

The second color I picked was the 10, called Dreamer.

Fotor_151776339885264

This one is a light, old-pink color. It’s a light pink, but it doesn’t give you that Barbie-look. It keeps the look sophisticated by being matte.

The last one was the 40, called Believer.

Opposite to the other two, this one is a dark and rich color. The bottle looks very purple, but when you apply the color on your lips, you notice it’s actually a purple, reddish, almost like an aubergine color. I really wanted to try out a dark color to see if it would apply just as nicely to the lips as the light colors.

So here is my opinion on this new collection of Maybelline:

Opening the bottle, the lipsticks smell really good. They have a fruity smell and it’s quite pleasant. The brush is a bit too big for me, which makes it a little more difficult to put the lipstick on, so I had to pay attention not to get over the edges of my lips. While putting the lipstick on, it’s quite glossy and not at all representative of the final color. The final color comes after 2-3 minutes, so you have to be a bit pacient for the final fully, matte look. The lipstick gives you full coverage, but is quite sticky, which is the only down side for me. It does live up to its name, by staying on your lips for pretty long and it is very difficult to remove. I had to use an oil-based make-up remover to remove the lipsticks. On the plus side, it doesn’t dry out your lips.

I love the colors and I will definitely be using these on a weekly basis.

Let me know if you have tried these as well or are thinking about buying them!

Love you all!
