Revlon Professional Equave Detangling Conditioner // This one has become my go-to leave in conditioner. It works within seconds and makes your hair super easy to comb. Especially great if you have wavy hair or loosing a lot at the moment due to postpartum hair loss like me.

Physician´s Formula Primer // I tried this one because it has great reviews and I am on the lookout for another primer I would love but this one isn´t it. The smell is amazing and it is creamy and super easy to apply but it is not working for me. The pores seems to appear smaller or smoother but it doesn´t help my skin to stay matte at all. It gets shiny within hours after applying and I do not like a glowing / sweating look on my face. The Benefit Poreless primer is still my number one.

Emeda False Lashes // I bought this whole 10 pair pack of lashes for 10 Euro from amazon and was very impressed with the quality. The silicone band is clear and soft just how I like it. The ends stick out a little but you can cut them easily on both sides and then you have a perfect pair of false lashes. The brand offers different styles but I think I am going to stick with these. They are the perfect everyday piece for me.

CeraVe Face Wash // Was on the hunt for a new face wash and have seen this in some other bloggers cart so I wanted to give it a try. I was a little intimidated by the price first but to be honest it is huge and I now have it for about a year and there is still plenty left. It is designed for oily skin and to remove tallow and dead skin cells. For me it works great. Doesn´t smell bad and the most important thing – it isn´t drying out my skin. Cause if there is one thing I hate it is itchy skin!!

Mario Badescu Drying Lotion // The hyped to the sky magical drying lotion. What other can I say about it than that it really helps. It does not make your pimple or acne zyst magically disapear but in my opinion it speeds up the process and shortens it about 2 or 3 days.

The 3 Summer Nail Polish Colors you should try….

….

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

Summer is the most colorful season of all and while I am embracing it to its fullest I understand that incorporating lots of color is not everybodies cup of tea. So how about starting small and adding some color to your nails. It makes them pop even more when you stick to wearing neutrals. I recently read an article that shared the top three Summer nail polish colors – hot pink, orange and blue. To be honest those three are right up my alley and I love them equally so it will be really hard choosing a favorite. Probably gonna rotate all Summer long. 

I bought all three of them from Essie cause they have such a huge selection that I knew this brand would carry all three of them. I got Watermelon (hot pink), Meet me at sunset (orange) and Aruba Blue.

Random Drug Store Lipsticks I ordered to try…

….

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

I am a huge lipstick gal and there is not much to say to this. I love lipsticks. I never leave the house without any and if I am at home I am also wearing at least gloss or a tinted balm so over the years I have gotten quite the experience which products / brands I love and what not.

So for today´s post I went on the internet and randomly ordered all of the lipsticks in the picutre to review them for you.  It was really fun to just choose by color. And we all know (or at least if you have been following a while) that I don´t need another new lipstick cause I probably have enough to last for a lifetime but this has also been a fun challenge.

All of the lipsticks / glosses can be found at the drug store and are under 10 Euro. They are all from well known beauty brands but we all know that this doesn´t has to mean that they are made from good quality.

Maybelline Lifter Gloss 006 Reef – These are amazing. A great gloss, not sticky at all, highly pigmented, holds up well for a gloss and available in so many pretty colors.

Maybelline Lifter Gloss 17 Cooper – Same here. The prettiest bronze color. Looks way darker than it actually is. Holds up great as well. If you want to look it more intense I would wear a nude lipstick underneath.

elf bite size lip balm Berry Bae – The idea of this cute little tinted lip balm is good but is is too bulky to apply without smudging the whole time so that is definitely a no. The color is not very pigmented but it is a lip balm. But you could totally use it as a cream blush. 

NYX Liquid Suede Gloss – 

elf Lip Plumping Gloss Bahama Mama – Super light. Not noticeable without a lipstick underneath. I am wearing Summer Saigon from MAC underneath the gloss and it turned out really good. The gloss itself is not sticky at all and easy to apply but if you don´t like the feeling a plumping gloss leaves on your lips I would not recommend it.

elf Sheer Slick Dragon Fruit – Amazing pigmentation. The perfect pink shade for Summer. Not matte. Goes on super easy. Not very long lasting but cute for the price.

Maybelline Super Stay Ink Crayon 30 Seek Adventure  I have used their crayons for years now and still love them. Highly pigmented, long lasting, goes on very smooth. 

Got2B Mattified Lipstick Tropical Beauty  Very pigmented. Not drying at all. Dries of matte. The orange shade is super vibrant but cute for Summer on brown skin. 

Wet n Wild Megalast Matte Cinnamon Spice – A adorable berry shade, a little too dark for Summer but very pigmented. The color didn´t show very good on the website. The cheapest of all the lipsticks I got. It goes on very smooth. Dries of matte but I would say it is definitely drying out your lips so use a lip balm underneath.

elf SRSLY Satin Taffy Caramel – The color is the prettiest rosewood shade. Goes on very smooth. Doesn´t dry of matte. Very affordable. Not long lasting but totally worth it.

I subscribed to Estrid – a Razor Subscription and here is what I think..

….

FYI: I prepared this blog post before our baby girl arrived so there would still be fresh content on the blog while I am taking a break from blogging. That’s why you’ll still see me pregnant or referencing my pregnancy in some upcoming blog posts!

Hello ladies,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

a few weeks back I finally gave in and subscribed to Estrid, a razor subscription service, after I saw an Instagram add. I have been curious for a while about it after seeing so many posts and opinons about Billie and Athena so I decided to go with it. 

The starter kit arrived with my razor, two blades, a holder for the shower and a travel case I purchased seperately. The holder is super convenient cause I always hated my razor sticking to eveything else in the shower after it dried. There are 6 beautiful colors to choose from, I went with the matcha hue, a gorgeous pastell green. Not that the color matters for function but it is nice to have a pretty looking tool when you use it this often.

Shipping was pretty fast and free. I payed 16,95 Euro for all the things I listed above and am very happy. You can choose from different subscription models. I went with two new blades every two month for 9,95 Euro and think that it is a very good price point.

I have used the Venus Gilette razor my whole life and decided it was time for a change cause I was not satisfied with it anymore. I have come to the sad realization that many things I have used since I was a teenager have gotten bad or even worse in quality over time so I had to look for new products.

What I think about the Estrid Razor…

After using it for the first time I was very impressed with how smooth my legs have been. I did not get razor burn (which has always been an issue for me) and I also didn´t cut myself. It stayed like this after every shave so naturally I never looked back.

One razor blade lasts about 4 to 6 weeks with me shaving every third or fourth day. Somehow my legs stay longer smooth with this razor and I am very very pleased with the outcome because I hate shaving. 

I am definitely going to use their service as long as they are in business which hopefully will be a long long time. If you are intrigued just try it, there is not much too loose and you can cancel anytime. 

This is an honest review and I am not sponsored in any way. Just a very pregnant and happy girl over here loving her new razor cause it reduces the amount of shaves.
