Review: Ontic Minerals Eco-Glitter Powder

Hi loves! Today I have something amazing for you! Its glitter :D Ontic Minerals was kind enough to sen me their Eco-Glitter Powdera and I have shades Silver Twinkle, Strawberry Splash, Elf's Treat, Starburst, Pixie Dust, Raspberry Charm and Mermaids Dream (5g, 9.95 EUR). These are just so beautiful and sparkly! There is altogether 7 different shades available. These can be used on eyes, skin, lips and hair.

The glitters come in little jars and there is a sifter on all of them. These are surprisingly mess free to use. When It comes to loose shadows/glitters, I'm always afraid its messy, but the way their packaging is designed its not.

I have been using it with a NYX Glitter base, which I find is the only way to wear glitter. I wet my brush, pick up the glitter I like and pat it on the sticky base. These stayed all day on place and don't move around. 

The glitters are made of some kind of film, which comes from regenerated cellulose. These don't contain any ingredients, which are genetically modified and is not harmful to the ecosystem. These also are not tested on animals! 

Down below you can see swatches of everything and I did use NYX Glitter Base to swatch these on. Sticky base is must have whenever working with glitters. My favorite shade out of all of these is G06 Starburst. Its just so pretty and I feel like I can combine it with any eye look :) I also like G02 Mermaids Dream and G03 Pixie Dust.

Down below you can find a look wearing the Starburst in the middle of the lid. It just looks stunning and not at all too much ;)

I'm over the moon about these glitters! Thank you again Ontic Minerals for sending me these <3 I'll try to use more of the other shades as well and when I do I'll post the look in my Instagram (link). If you are interested checking out these beauties I'll link it here. But I think they don't ship outside of Estonia.

Do you like to wear glitter?

Review: Vestige Verdant Rare Oil Blend

Hi love! I'm obsessed with beauty oils and I have been using at the moment Vestige Verdant Rare Oil Blend (50ml, 49 EUR). The oil is moisturizes, repairs, rejuvenates and reinvigorates the skin. The formula is 100% organic.

It comes in a black packaging and has a pump. Its pricy item, but it contains way more product then some other beauty oils I own. It contains Neroli oil from Italy, Patchouli oil from Indonesia, Carrot seed oil from Nepal, Sea Buckthorn oil from Germany and Argan oil from Morocco. It contains the best raw ingredients from farmers, who have organic and fair trade certificates.

  • Argan oil in it provides moisturizing and also helps to shrink pores and balance the skin. 
  • Organic carrot seed oil is rich with vitamin A and carotene. It makes the skin youthfully elastic and has anti carcinogenic abilities. It helps skin cels rejuvenate higher pace. 
  • Neroli oil helps with stress, also tightens the skin and helps to create new skin cells.
  • Patchouly oil has anti-allergy abilities. 

I use it every evening as a last step in my skincare routine. Sometimes I also mix it in with my night cream. Its excellent at hydrating the skin and in the morning I'm not oily, which I was afraid, because of my oily skin type. It sinks into the skin fast, doesn't feel heavy and just leaves my skin soft and hydrated. Since I have been using it my pores do look better, but I'm not 100% sure if their smaller.

If you are interested in it I'll link it here. They also have eye serum (review) and a mask (review), which I have already reviewed on the blog. Out of the 3 products they have the oil is my favorite. I love the formula of their Rare Oil Blend and also the packaging is nice. I have no complains ;)

Which is your favorite beauty oil?

Top 5 favorite Aïcha products

Hi loves! Today I have for you my top 5 Aïcha products, which I all have purchased with my own money. There is no affiliate links and its not sponsored in any way.

Lets start with skincare items and first is their Anti-Aging Argan Cream (50ml, review). All the ingredients are natural in it and its wonderful base for makeup application. After applying it, it leaves my skin matte and my makeup goes on so much better. Also it can be used in the evenings and I like to add few drops beauty oil in it for more hydration and nourishment for the night time.

My other favorite is their Pure Organic Argan Oil (50ml, review), which can be used on hair, body and remove the makeup. I use it only to remove my makeup and when traveling I do use it to hydrate my skin as well. It nourishes my eye area and melts away all my makeup, even the suborn eyeliner.

Now lets continue with hair care items and first is their Hair Treatment Serum (30ml, review) with argan oil. Its the first item I have tried from them and I have already used up 2 bottles and I do need to buy a new one. It is better then any hair oil. It gives my hair shine, takes care of the frizz and makes it feel softer. I also like it doesn't make my hair as oily then a hair oil would, so I don't need to wash my hair so often. I have naturally dry hair and this has been something I use every day.

My last two favorites from the brand is their Argan Shampoo (330ml) & Conditioner (300ml, review), which is with pro vitamin B5. It cleanses my hair well, but doesn't dry out my hair or my scalp. The conditioner makes my hair silky and soft. It just wonderful duo and my mom got me on it. According to her its the best shampoo and conditioner she has ever tried and I have to agree with her. I always come back to it :)

I hope you guys enjoyed this post :) If you have any questions leave them down below. You can find all the products on Aïcha's webpage, which you can access here.

Estonian Beauty Haul 2017 #1

Hi loves! Whenever I'm Estonia I pick up some local beauty goodies and this time I picked up couple of items from Joik and Ingli Pai. Both brands make 100% natural beauty products.

I picked up 3 items from Joik and first is their Rosewater Facial Mist (50ml). I got it because I got 2 of their powder masks and I want to mix it with the rose water.

The first mask I got is their Rejuvenating & Tightening Chocolate Facial Mask (50g). I was hoping it would smell like chocolate, but there is almost no scent to it. It can be mixed with just water, milk or herbal tea. The other mask is their Radiance Improving Cranberry & Blackcurrant Facial Mask (50g). This also can be mixed with water, milk and herbal tea. Both masks are recommended to use once a week and kept on skin 10-15 minutes.

The last item is Ingli Pai Mud Mask (30ml) for skin, which has large pores. I like their products always contain few product, which means its fresh and their ingredients list is always short. Its a first mask I own from them, so I'm happy to see what it does for my skin. It does claim to deep cleanse the skin. 

I have tried only one item from them before, which you can read about here. I really did like it and that's why I have high hopes for the mask :)

This is it for my little Estonian haul! I hope you enjoy it and let me know if there is anything you want me to review right away. I'm happy to do so :)

Have you tried any of these products before?

Review: Natura Siberica Exfoliating Face Scrub

Hi loves! Today I have for Natura Siberica Exfoliating Face Scrub (150ml, €6.99) and 99% ingredients are natural. Its suitable for oily and combination skin. I have oily skin.

The scrub comes in a purple squeeze tube and its easy to get out the product. The formula is with out any GMO plants and doesn't contain parabens PEG, silicons, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, glycols and mineral oils. Its with Sophora Japonica and Arctic Raspberry, which delicately exfoliates the skin. It makes the skin smooth and firm. The Sophora Japonica contains up 30% Vitamin P, which stimulates regeneration process and regulates lipid balance. It also contains Apricot Seeds and it gently exfoliates the skin, and the  Arctic Raspberry extract soothes the skin.

Its suitable for daily use and its my first face scrub I have tried from the brand. I usually go for their body product. The scrub is gentle and I use it every morning. The color of the scrub is beige and has little particles in it, which help to get all the dirt off. The beads in it are small and thats why its gentle.  I wet my face and apply it on the skin. I scrub my face with it around 1 minute. It leaves my skin firmer and so smooth. After that I follow with my skincare routine as usual.

I'm really happy with it! Its affordable, natural and doesn't contain any bad ingredients. Honestly I can't wait to try more from them. I think next I try their face masks.

Review: Ingli Pai Firming and Moisturizing Toner

Hi loves! Today I have for you Ingli Pai Firming and Moisturizing Toner (150ml, 3.70 EUR). Ingli Pai is an Estonian company, which makes 100% natural beauty products. 

The toner comes in a dark brown glass bottle and doesn't contain any alcohol. It has a slight herbal scent to it and I have been using it every morning and evening for few months now. Before using it, it says to shake it. It doesn't feel drying on skin or irritate it. I also like the ingredients list is short, which I'll list it down below.

Ingredients: Aqua, Pelargonium Rosem, Rosmarinus Officinalis 

The toner feels refreshing on skin and it does make my skin feel firmer and also soft and smooth. It hasn't broke me out and I can say my skin has become better ever since I started using it.

I'm happy with my first product from Ingli Pai and next time I'm in Estonia I'll be picking up some more of this toner and also I wan to try their masks.

If you are in Estonia you can find it in Kaubamaja (link) and I think I picked up mine in Rimi. 

If you have tried the brand before let me know in the comments your favorite product from them, so I could try it out as well :)

Review: Avril Le Crayon Yeux | Bronze Culvré

Hi loves! Today I have for you guys Avril Le Crayon Yeux in shade Bronze Culvré (3 EUR). I got it in one of the Style Tone boxes and Avril products have 100% natural origins ingredients.

The liner is a pencil, which I do need to sharpen. I would like it more, if it would be twist up, but I can't complain considering the price point. The formula of the shadow is long lasting, pigmented and creamy. I have mostly used it on the lower waterline. Its suited for sensitive eyes and their products are not tested on animals.

The shade Bronze Culvré is a beautiful deep bronze, which looks gorgeous paired with a nude smokey eye. Its also easy to apply it and it glides on like a dream, and it is easy to smudge out. 

The overall staying power is good. I would reapply it, if I would go out with friends in the evening, for more fresh look. Its a great everyday liner, which hasn't irritated my eyes and I have sensitive eyes. So I'm happy I can use it, because the shade of it is just beautiful. If you are interested in it, you can check it out here.
