Hi ! 😊 As you know, with this post I’m ending my first round from the Deciem series. So without further adieu, let’s start with my review of  The Ordinary – Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10% .

The Ordinary ” Hyaluronic acid 2% + B 5 ” Review

The Ordinary ” Hyaluronic acid 2% + B 5 ” Review

When it comes to The Ordinary brand, this is what I would call,  the basic, foundation brand from Deciem. This means,  you get products with a more simple, yet effective, combination of ingredients ( in compare to products from other Deciem skin care brands, and the evident, price difference among them). This is also the brand you should start with, if you’re a beginner when it comes to skin care education.  By this, I mean learning about ingredients, what something does for the skin, when to use it,  etc., pretty much knowing what you’re actually putting onto your skin. In …

Deciem – The Masterbrand

Deciem – The Masterbrand

Hello everybody!  😃 After a month of testing, I’ve decided to start  my “Deciem series” , so in the upcoming weeks,  you’ll be reading several reviews of their products, starting with the first –  The Ordinary  “ Hyaluronic acid 2% + B5 “. But, before I post my first review,  I wanted to write a small intro regarding Deciem itself. So, this is a Canadian, Toronto based corporate umbrella,  founded by Brandon Truaxe in 2013. The name originates from the Latin word “ decima”,  meaning “ 10 in a sequence”, which perfectly suits this masterbrand, since it has more than …

Eucerin DermatoClean refreshing cleansing gel Review

As promised, and since I’m not sick anymore, I sat down and wrote a new review! 🙌 This time it’s about an all-time favorite of mine,  the Eucerin DermatoClean refreshing cleansing gel.

Pretty secure, I’ve traveled with it and it never opened or leaked. About the product / ingredients This cleanser is targeted at normal to combination skin with a very mild formula, so it’s suitable for sensitive skin. You won’t find …

Lip Balm Battle Smackdown !

Lip Balm Battle Smackdown !

Winter is in its full swing and with shoveling snow, wearing layers upon layers, freezing cold and icy streets, heating issues and flu epidemic, the most annoying thing about winter are also chapped lips. Oh yes, red, painful, cracked, smackers. 😒 To prevent or heal this issue, the easiest way is to use a lip balm or as some people call it – A chapstick. 😀 💄 Now, I’ve decided to write this post in a different form than my usual, so instead of a standard lip balm review, this will be a cross comparison between two pairs of lip …

For a healthier you – Part 2

For a healthier you – Part 2

Follow my blog with Bloglovin If you’re planning on losing weight, you need two things: a measuring tape and a camera to take photos. Get a measuring tape and measure yourself – Neck, upper arm, waist, hips, thigh and calves. Track your measurements. Also, FORGET THE SCALE. Weight once, maybe twice a month. Your main goal is to lose your overall body fat percentage (lose fat) and build muscle.. It’s not about the scale number. Women focus on that quite often. A small number doesn’t always mean it’s a healthy body, nor does a higher number mean you have poor …

Zoeva “En Taupe” palette Review /Recenzija

Zoeva “En Taupe” palette Review /Recenzija

A small Intro… Since Zoeva is already very known in the beauty industry, I won’t write a huge intro. The company was born in Germany by Zoe Boikou. As a professional makeup artist, she realized the need for affordable brushes, since at the time; there weren’t a lot of options on the market. Let’s face it, not every person can afford brushes like MAC, Shiseido, Suqqu, Hakuhodo etc… These brands ruled the scene for decades. ( Actually most of the brushes on the market are private-label products, which means they are manufactured by one company, for brands by other companies, …
