Products that disappointed me

avon-cadeavera-elizavecca

For the most part, I always write about products I recommend and love, but sometimes I find products that don’t suit me. To save you a dime, I’ve put together a list of products that disappointed me and I wouldn’t recommend buying them.


Although these products do not suit me, it does not mean that no one else should use them or that I have something against the brand. I always try to be objective and share my honest opinion, I’ve tested these products long enough to know what is my opinion about them.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Face Exfoliator

neutrogena-hydroboost-faceexfoliator

Regular exfoliating can be crucial in maintaining a clear skin and radiant complexion. Exfoliating removes dead skin cells from the face and prevents irregularities and ingrown hairs. If you are interested in learning more about this topic, keep reading.


Exfoliation can be mechanical or chemical. Mechanical peeling cleanses the surface of the skin with finely grounded particles, while chemical peeling goes deep into the skin with active ingredients such as AHA and BHA acids. Whether on the face or on the body, after using an exfoliator, the complexion is brighter and clearer, and the skin is softer and smoother with a nicer texture.

Personally, I prefer both mechanical and chemical peelings, depending on how much time I have. Lately I have been using Neutrogena Hydro Boost Face Exfoliator, a facial scrub with hyaluronic acid. It is intended for all skin types and does not dry out the skin as it is alcohol free. It contains glycerin, which can greatly help with the hydration and elasticity of dry skin.neutrogena-hydroboost-peeling

Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Eau De Parfume

elizabetharden-greentea

Never enough of perfumes, right? Recently I used up all the perfumes I had and decided to add a new one in my collection. I already had a chance to try Elizabeth Arden perfumes and I wanted to add one perfume of this brand to my collection. This is the first perfume review ever on this blog.


Do you know the difference between extrait de parfumeeau de parfume and eau de toilette? The perfume extrait contains the highest concentration of scent, from 15 to 40%, the scent is very intense and lingers on the body for a very long time. Eau de parfume contains 8-20% of perfume extract, and the scent remains on the body for up to six hours.

Perfectly nourished lips with only two products

neutrogena-balzamzausne

I like to try out new products so this time I decided to make a lip care set with which you can prepare your lips for applying lipstick. I chose a lip balm and a lip scrub, it is a versatile combination that will suit many as the products are very nourishing and not rough on the skin.


To prepare the lips for lipstick application or application of any other lip products, especially matte lipstick, it is necessary to exfoliate the lips first. I used to do a homemade lip scrub, but I got bored of it so I decided to try a new product. I will use Burt’s Bees Conditioning Lip Scrub to remove any dead skin cells and impurities from the lips.

This lip scrub contains 100% natural ingredients such as castor oil, beeswax and honey crystals. The exfoliation is very mild and softens the lips while nourishing and regenerating them. The scrub particles are so finely ground that they melt immediately when applying the product to the lips. It makes me feel like I am applying a lip balm, not a scrub.burtsbees-conditioninglipscrub

Biomed Organics Products

biomedorganics

In the last few weeks I have had the opportunity to test dermatological skincare brand called Biomed Organics. These are natural cosmetics without parabens, mineral oils and alcohol, and the brand doesn’t test the products on animals. The ingredients come from fruits and various plants, some of them avocado and argan oil, fruit acids and Shea butter.


Biomed Organics products don’t contain any harmful ingredients, they detoxify the skin and protect the skin from harmful external influences. This brand promises visible results after only a few weeks of use, with nearly 80 skincare products on offer. I am going to introduce you to a few products which were very easy to fit into my skin care routine.

-FORGET YOUR AGE anti-wrinkle eye cream-

The main active ingredient in this eye cream is Phycojuvenine, a brown seaweed extract that helps fight wrinkles and promote collagen production. Hyaluronic acid also helps fight surrounding wrinkles, making the skin firmer and plumper.

By using this cream regularly, eye wrinkles can be reduced by up to 30%, which I definitely noticed. My eye area looks fresh and moisturized, and the makeup looks better in that area. I have a feeling that my entire eye area is firmer and smoother. 15 ml, 20e

Makeup Revolution Forever Flawless Eyeshadow Palette

makeuprevolution-foreverflawless-ogledalo

I have not used the Makeup Revolution palettes for so long, I actually started my beauty journey using their palettes so I wanted to remind myself of their quality. They constantly have something new on the market so I decided to try out a new palette and see if it’s practical and good quality.


makeuprevolution-foreverflawless-packaging

I’ve been looking so long for an eyeshadow palette that has shimmer and mat colors, that has earthy and bronze colors. A palette that has darker shades and lighter shades with which a daily look and night look can be made. This Makeup Revolution Forever Flawless Eye Shadow Palette Decadent is perfect for my needs at this time.

It has 18 shades and a large mirror, a metal packaging that is very firm and you can’t open it easily. The palette contains seven shimmer shades and eleven mat shades. The pigmentation is very good, and it may be even better if you spray a small amount of setting spray on the brush and apply the eyeshadow. On the other hand, the pigmentation is best if you apply eyeshadow with clean fingers, which is the case with most eyeshadow palettes.makeuprevolution-foreverflawless-shades

As for blending, I did not have any problems with that. All shades are creamy enough so they can be beautifully blended and do not look dry on the eyelid. Mat shades have a slight fallout, this is more noticeable with darker shades, so be sure to shake the excess off before applying it to the lid. For lighter shades, the fallout is minimal, and there is no fallout with shimmer shades. The shades do not fade after a while and they look great on the eyelid.

Nivea Urban Skin Moisturise Face Mask

niveaurbanskin-hidratantnamaska

Another one of Nivea news is the Urban Skin line, a line enriched with ingredients that protect the skin from harmful effects from the environment we live in. Sounds great, right? The Urban Skin line contains a multitude of interesting products that I want to try and for now I decided to try just a moisturizing mask.


I’m talking about Urban Detox Moisturise face mask that contains green tea and hyaluronic acid. If you know me, you know that these two ingredients are my favorite so it’s normal that I had chosen a product like this.

I have not had the opportunity to try any moisturizing masks until now and I just needed one of these. The mask has a very gel like and thick texture, like applying a very rich face cream. The formula of the mask is blue and when you start to apply it onto the skin then it turns into a white color.

niveaurbanskin-moisturisemask

The mask should be applied to a clean face, avoiding the area around the eyes, hold it for one minute and then rinse it. I have to admit I left it for more than a minute on my face to see if the effect is different. A minute or two minutes, it’s the same, it doesn’t make any difference for me.

After washing off the mask, the skin is very soft and hydrated, which is the ultimate goal of this mask. This product is one of the few that does not create a feeling of burning on my face, but instead it creates a feeling of hydration.

I did not notice that my face now looks cleaner or tighter, as Nivea claims, but the mask gives hydration and that’s why I wanted to have it. When the skin is moisturized and nourished, it automatically looks healthy and fresh. It takes a small amount for the whole face, two pea grains, which means that this mask will last me forever if I use it twice or three times a week.

-Yes or No?-

I like to use face masks, sometimes two or three times a week, sometimes less often, depending what my skin needs. This Nivea mask came super handy and I’m very glad I got a chance to try it. If you need extra hydration on your face, and look for an affordable option – this is the product for you.

The price of this mask on Notino is 38.30 kn and you get an amount of 75 ml.

Makeup Revolution Cheek Kit Don’t Hold Back

makeuprevolution-cheekkit-dontholdback

Highlighters and bronzers make it so easy to achieve sunny and bronzey tan, all without exposure to harmful sun rays. In the summer I like to use shimmer and bronze shades on my face to achieve that sunburnt look. Having everything in one palette is very practical, and when you find a good quality and affordable palette – it’s a dream come true.


I avoided all products that contained shimmer before, my skin simply could not handle them. I’ve changed my whole skin care routine and my skin is less oily now, which is a great success for a person who had very oily skin for the most part of her life. Now I can finally enjoy the highlighters and bronzers without the fear that my face will look greasy.

The palette I’m writing about today is the Makeup Revolution Cheek Kit in the Don’t Hold Back shade. The palette contains two shimmer highlighters and two shimmer bronzers. The first highlighter has a pure gold tone, and the other has a rose gold tone. Both shades are very finely grounded and very pigmented, although it seems to me that the other shade is more intense.

Nivea Clay Fresh Shower Gels

nivea-clayfresh-gelzatusiranje

Recently, new Nivea clay shower gels came out on the market and I wanted to try them. I have not used such clay products on my body so far, and the idea of clay shower gels is very interesting. I like to use face masks with clay so I think these products could be very effective.


-Nivea Clay Fresh-

-Blue Agave & Lavender; Hibiscus & White Sage-

These shower gels are available in three versions: Hibiscus & White Sage, Blue Agave & Lavender and Ginger & Basil.

If you have not seen it yet, seasonal discounts have started on Notino, so go to the page and catch your favorite discount products. 🙂

Laneige Water Bank Moisture Kit

I have heard only good comments about Korean brands from other bloggers and I wanted to try out if Korean products are really so good. I’ve ordered a few products I still test, but today you will be able to read about some Korean skin care products.

Today, I’ll talk about the Laneige Water Bank Moisture Kit, which I ordered from the Korean site called YesStyle. I ordered three products in sample packaging, just to test their quality. I did not want to buy a full size pack immediately because I am trying to reduce my cosmetics collection as much as possible.
