Empty jars – 2

Continue to talk about their empty jars. Decided not to break the posts into time periods (such as a post about banks in August), and writing the accumulation of empty containers and the emergence of free time.

This time, I have here a set of tools:

First let me remind you about my skin: 35 years, age-related changes in a small amount, with acne now skin is more of Combi, occasionally suffer from dry.

And the number one tool really surprised me.

Mask sheet ILLIYOON with mushroom extract

On the package in English only the brand name and the indication that essence in this mask with the extract of mushroom.

This mask I picked up from one of my favorite foreign bloggers.

Brand illiyoon belongs to the amorepacific group. The brand philosophy is based on traditional medicine, particularly the use of medicinal plants in products for beauty. The brand focuses on hydration of skin and focuses more on the owners of dry, age and dehydrated skin. The brand is not new, not young, has an impressive history and achievements in the beauty field.

So, the mask is very saturated with essence. The essence of sticky, smells very nice, dear udalovoy makeup, which surprised me, given the cost of the mask. Another surprise was waiting for me after using the mask. When I removed it from the face, I realized that my skin moisturized for 100 years). With a feeling of heaviness from saturation with moisture until then, I was not familiar)

The gravity was felt for some time, then disappeared. Remain hydrated, happy skin. The effect of the mask could be felt the next day.

Great mask, just super cool! Definitely will order another, maybe with some other extract, benefit of brand to choose from.

I’m sure in the winter this mask will join the ranks of matthewb, because in the winter my skin is dry is simply impossible!

Kiehl’S calendula herbal extract toner

Here all this toner was good and the flavor had such a natural, pleasant, and on the skin, like, acts nice, and convenient to use, this is methylparaben in third place in the list of ingredients! On the third, Carl! I don’t need, so the more accurately will not repeat it. Even at the bottom of the bottle you can observe the petals of the marigold flower and it should add incredible beauty to this bottle, but, frankly, to me this whole cake is just like certain moments from the movie “medicine for health”.

General tonic herbal tea smell, not sticky, removes dryness and tightness after washing. More like not doing anything.

Origins clear emprovement mask with charcoal

This mask was bought in a set, which included three miniatures of the most popular masks of the brand. In the discussed tube was 30 ml mask, I had enough time for 5, I guess. The mask is black in color, creamy, easy to apply, rinse a little more complicated, but, in General, the process of applying can call pleasant.

Put the mask in a thick layer on face, leave for 10-20 minutes, then washed with water, helping himself to a cellulose sponge.

Much has been written good about this mask! Entirely some all the rave. Therefore, the mask I bought, being almost sure that with its task it copes well. My skin is no easy task, of course, but the usual cosmetic clay, diluted with water, gives the best result.

In General, the effect of the mask I did not like, it was very mediocre. Skin is left as if insufficiently treated, the pores hardly changed visually. Most likely, the mask will appeal to owners of dry skin, normal skin with a few black dots. For those who have a skin problem, it will be as dead poultices.

Tatcha watercream

Legendary product from the Japanese brand Tatcha. If you see foreign bloggers, you definitely at least once, Yes, I saw cans of this brand in the frame. Interest in Tatcha, I had just in the course of viewing a single video to a known resource, and then decided to buy something from the brand. By the way, Tatcha sells sets of miniatures (which is my favorite format). In General, used the cream, over the Bank…)

Very surprised that the packaging for miniatures made as solidly and accurately, of the same material (glass, metal, expensive plastic) that panoramer.

The cream was the texture of this… uh… fashionable! Many brands have now released this. This cream-gel that feels like water when applied. Of the known analogues can highlight cream with black rose by Sisley gel cream of la mer, aquabomb from the Korean brand belif. And, from this list the worst instance is a belif, and then only because it includes alcohol. La mer feels heavy immediately after application, and then I miss it from moisture, in about 3 hours. Sisley and Stitch are my favorites in this category of funds.

In General, means perfectly moisturizes, not heavy, does not clog pores, smells good. Ideal for the summer! If I find something more interesting, I shall buy myself use this product by next summer.

Tatcha watercream will suit oily and combination skin in the summer normal skin with this cream would be OK too, dry skin is not enough.

Aura botanica Kerastase bain micelliare micellar shampoo

This shampoo is bought in another fit, dedicated to finding hair products without SLS. The type found. I used this bottle for a long time, months 6, because I didn’t like it all: weird not pleasant to me aroma, high consumption (bad foam), hair without volume, and as if badly washed to get dirty quickly. All of the above (except fragrance) — the trouble is many of funds without sulfates, but some of them are very good. However, I have never met a shampoo without sulfates, which would be my hair was so voluminous and light as the usual shampoo, but sometimes you come across good specimens.

Shampoo, liquid, transparent, foam, easily washed off, a big expense is.

This shampoo I will not repeat, because the scent drove me crazy (in a bad way).

Face serum Troiareuke anti-trouble formula

This serum I have only box, because the bottle I broke, dropping it in the sink. By the way, the bottle was made of thin transparent glass, with a dropper – dispenser. Once I got the serum in his head flashed the thought that this bottle will not survive the fall. And so it happened. Warms the soul just the fact that the serum was coming to an end, because 2/3 of the bottle I had to spend.

Initially, when making the order, I wanted to buy the serum for problematic skin. The name anti-trouble formula confused me, I thought this is it. But no. This serum for the solution of problems related to skin dryness, irritation, etc.

Only the line of the brand 4 types of serum: yellow, red, blue, green. I had the green. When I say that the serum was green, I mean the color of the liquid.

So: green — combat dryness, blue for problem skin, yellow — vitamin C, red — to combat aging of the skin.

The serum is enclosed in a simple bottle with a pipette, the volume of the vial 20ml. The product itself is very light, feels like regular water with a barely discernible scent. The green color of the serum on the skin does not manifest itself.

In General, the serum was the perfect option for the summer: weightless texture and kakakoy fat and weight. Moisturizing serum is also quite enough for summer. I’ve never used a serum solo, always closed cream.

Serum — the water is my favorite texture, so the product I really liked, and I want to try all 4 serum brand.

After a month of use I noticed that the skin less thick, I don’t feel dryness during the day, with no feeling of three kilos of cosmetics on the skin. Overall skin tone became more even. I’m not sure that the improvement of the skin — the merit only of serum, indeed, in leaving me a lot of things, but without the serum there is not exactly cost.

READ  The empty jars. Skincare

Tonic Korean brand designed for oily and Combi skin. Needs soothe, soften, remove discomfort and tightness after washing.

Tonic does this. Very nice tool. I took it on holiday with them, for me this bottle was just enough for 2 weeks I spent away from home.

Tonic (or toner) is a slightly viscous water with a subtle flavor contains no alcohol. Unlikely to repeat this remedy for the reason that I want to try new things, but the product is decent, I can safely recommend.

The history of whoo Hwa Hyun cleansing foam

Long tormented this way — a year, maybe. And it is not because the tool is bad, just the bottle is small, convenient to take on trips (which I did). I don’t know why the manufacturer called it a medium foam. Is not foam, this transparent gel with aroma of ginseng. The tool is economical, washes up well celebrate with a hydrophilic oil. Needless to say that the dries? It dries. Smaller than other Korean foam (mostly), but still. Fans of gentle cleansing, move along, nothing to see!)

The Ordinary Niacinomide 10% + Zinc 1%.

Ladies and gentlemen, the legend Cosmeticly! And, I think, deservedly so. About this bottle has not only lazy (I am). Without background, they are known to all. The packaging also makes no sense to describe.

The serum is light, something between gel and water. Distributed easily, absorbs quickly, feels sticky, but the stickiness disappears after applying follow-up care. For warm season gel texture was too heavy for daytime use, so used only at night under your usual care. The next morning was a notable result: the overall tone of the skin becomes smoother, the redness and rash less noticeable. This product was for me masthaven and me already on the second bottle.

I believe that the product is very successful and is recommended for girls who have, ahem… acne is crossed with wrinkles).

Sugar scrub ML body care Tropical mango

Sugar scrub with the famous “green” website. In fact, it is the mixture of sugar and oils. Oils davolno-still heavy, so this scrub is not suitable for use in the warm time of the year. But for winter — the most it! After the scrub just do not need extra moisture in the form of a cream/body milk. Because the oil is heavy, soaks it for a long time, this fact also eliminates the possibility of using the scrub in the morning.

Aroma sraba just bomber! A mixture of rose and mango. Reminded me of the scent of limiti from Ibitza Escada hippie I poured the year, probably in 2010 (but not sure).

Scrubbing particles are not large (normal sugar), when using dissolve quickly, the skin does not scratch.

In General, the scrub very much, mainly because of the bright and delicious flavor. For those who don’t like loud, long lasting fragrance, this tool will not work. Well, I’m closer to winter I’ll order another jar…

Spray for fixing makeup Colourpop amber crystal setting spray

The spray was in the set with a lipstick and lip balm, highlighter. All three tools combines peach aroma, pretty pleasant. The aroma is felt just a couple of minutes after use, then disappears.

This spray has caused a double sense: on the one hand, he recorded make-up and prolongs its durability (a bit), so it was possible to use it to remove unwanted propojenost if you lightly touched with powder; on the other hand, means a terrible gun! You can easily ruin the whole makeup getting into the eyes of a normal drop of spray. I started to use it after I’m done with the face, but before eye makeup, then the rules. Even immediately after spraying on the skin felt a slight burning sensation, just for a few seconds. While no skin reactions were observed. Interestingly, that gives a reaction on the skin..?

The two-phase medium, before use to mix water and oil part. Removes make-up normally, not irritating to the eyes, does not sting. Also a very long time trying to finish this tool, because such format of the make-up remover I didn’t like.

Also for a long time tormented by this little tube, because inside we have a dense white, opaque foam, smelling of ginseng (not sweet), and dry skin mercilessly! Cleans up all this mess to squeak and rattle. Before I loved, now I favor a more gentle cleanser, so this means I can’t recommend.

Joanna Naturia fine scrub lotion argan oil

Quite inconvenient packaging for such media format

Mediocre scrub with a good composition. The scrub is not soft and not very hard, reminded of the famous apricot scrub from clean lines. Is not expensive, but the packaging was enough for me 2 times on the whole body. Something smells natural, not to say that is very nice. It does not Relax with aromatherapy, and the use of funds in connection with the pressing need to remove the skin. I will not repeat, but rules.

Air conditioner HASK moisturizing with Orchid and white truffle

Hair products from HASK I like. This is not the first tool I used from this brand. The fundamental point — the lack of SLS in their means, as I’m allergic. Let me remind you about the hair: oily roots, dry ends, not painted, below the shoulders. In General, it is not too much. My every day, dry by the hair dryer, use butter on the ends, if not forget.

From the conditioning I need the softening, detangling, the lack of gravity on the hair after use. Other bonuses are also welcomed.

This conditioner is the consistency of the mask, so to get it from the banks — that has the problem. I Unscrew the cap a lot faster.

The product is white and thick. Easy to apply, washed off fine. The hair is softer from it, well combed, but there is volume. The word really. Air conditioning, overall good, but not perfect.

Shampoo HASK sealing with Biotin

This is a cool tool. Gently washes, unobtrusive smell, the smell of it is very good looking. What surprised me is the growth of new hair after a month of using the shampoo. Just in this period I haven’t had vitamins in my care was nothing but shampoo, conditioner and oil (on the ends), so I have a suspicion that the hair began to grow thanks to this tool. Shampoo repeated!

Medium white, pearl, smells weird, but not disgusting. Shampoo is not liquid, the consumption is average, foams well, washes fine (but not perfect). Volume to the hair adds a great pity!

Mask bomber! This brand is represented in Russia, but specifically, this mask we have seen. Mine came from Korea. The fabric with the mask is very soft, the impregnation of the car, smells nice, moisturizes and nourishes chic! Looks also very unusual. Here it is:


The only negative (and negative?) this is what remains of the essence Mosley removing the mask reluctantly absorbed. But I had a feeling that there is no place to absorb just). The mask smooths wrinkles and creases (due to the moisture, temporarily). But, I suspect that with regular use, the result will be longer.
