Estonian Beauty Haul 2017 #2


Hi loves! Happy midsummer night to you all! Its a big holiday here in Estonia and also one of my favorites :) Who doesn't love long days, specially after dark winter. Its perfect to have Estonian beauty haul and most items I picked up are from Estonian brands. 


I first picked up some Hoia goodies and I got their Lavender, Rosemary & Grapefruit Bodywhip (200ml). This sounds lovely and my girlfriend loves their bodywhips and I love lotions with lavender in it. Other Item from them is Coffee & Peppermint Bodyscrub (200ml). It sounded like a must have for me, because it has two things together I love coffee and peppermint.

I picked up Signe Seebid Orange Body Scrub (200g) from Kaubamaja. I could not resist the yummy scent of it and also I love the glass packaging.


I also got something from Joik and its their Shower Oil Raspberry Bon Bon (200ml). It has been in my wishlist for sometime and I have never tried something like this.

The next item is from Natura Siberica Extra-Firming Facial Mask (75ml, its one of the non Estonian brands). I used up my other mask, so I wanted to try something new and I haven't tried their skincare before.

Time to move on to makeup items and continuing with non Estonian brand. I got two pigments from Bellapierre and I got shade Resonance (pink) and the shade of the other one is rubbed off, so I don't know the name of it, but it is a gorgeous green, which can't wait to try.

If you have read this blog for sometime, you know I love Ontic Minerals shadows and I wanted to try their foundation and bronzer.I got the Flawless Mineral Foundation in shade Stories From the Ivory Coat. I hope it will match me, I should have gone with out any makeup on, to get matched before buy it. I like it has also SPF15 and so does the bronzer. Its their Mineral Bronzer and I got the shade Sunblessed.


This is it for my little beauty haul :) I hope you guys like this post and if you have any great natural brands to recommend to me, let me know in the comments below.

Review: Seraphine Botanicals Orange + Cream Lip Polish


Hi loves! Its so important to keep the lips hydrated and smooth, specially when you like to wear liquid lipsticks like me. I have been testing out Seraphine Botanicals Orange + Cream Lip Polish (10g, $18) and its 99.5% natural.


The lip scrub comes in a little jar and I need to scoop out the product. The scrub itself has a light orange scent to it, which I love. The formula is with out mineral oil, parabens and phthalates. Its not tested on animals and is hypoallergenic. Its also vegan and GMO free.

Its with avocado and apricot oils, which help repair chapped lips. The golden sugar in it helps to remove dead skin cells and makes lips smoother. It also contains mango butter, which provides hydration through out the day.


I like to wet my lips before I apply it and then massage my lips with it till the sugar melts away. On their page they do say to leave it on for 2 minutes and I understand why, because it can work the magic and make lips softer. But I wash it off and my lips are more nourished then before. I like it can be scrub and a lip mask at the same time. Its recommended to use 1-2 times a week. I usually use this type of items whenever I feel the need. 

Down below you can see before and after pictures. Sorry about the bad quality, I don't have the best lighting in the bathroom. You can still see, that scrub made my lips seem fuller and smoother.


I'm really happy with this little treasure! So happy I got it in my Style Tone box (latest unboxing). It has been pleasure to use :) If you are interested in it, you can check it out here.


Do you use lip scrub regularly?

Review: Ontic MInerals Mineral Veil | R2 Translucent


Hi loves! Today I have for you review on Ontic MInerals Mineral Veil and its in shade R2 Translucent (8g, 26.95EUR). There is two other powders from this range, the one I have has shimmer to it. I haven't used this rice powder to set my makeup, but its perfect to brush away my bake ;)


It comes in a jar and has a shifter, which doesn't let all the powder come out. In the jar the powder looks white and has a slight silver sheen to it. There is no scent to it and there is so many ways to use this powder. I like to brush away my bake with it and it works as the Hourglass Abient Light powder. I also have used this Ontic Minerals powder as my highlighter on cheeks bones, on the cupid's bow. It can be used as a highlighter wherever you want. It doesn't look over powering, but it can be more intense, if you wet the brush with setting spray. I sometimes do it when I want more intense highlight.



On the swatch it might seem too much, but I did build it up. You can see here how it looks when I brush off my bake with this powder. It brightens up everything so well and it has been my favorite powder for highlighting and just brightening up any makeup look. I want to try next their matte powder to set my foundation and see how it will work for me :)

If you are interested in this powder you can check it out here.

Review: Bellapierre Cosmetics Kiss Proof Lip Créme | Hot Head


Hi loves! Last week was so busy that I didn't find the time to post, so this week you guys will get 2 post and first one is on Bellapierre Cosmetics Kiss Proof Lip Créme in shade Hothead (3.8g, $20). All together there is 15 shades available. 

If you don't know the brand they do mineral makeup and have received Natural & Organic Award Europe 2017. Also their products are cruelty free. 


This liquid lipstick comes in a clear tube and has a flat doe foot applicator. It helps to get precise application, which is a must have with a bright liquid lipstick. The formula of it is creamy and so pigmented, which you can see down below for yourself. The liquid lipstick has a sweet candy scent to it, which I adore.

The application is so easy with this liquid lipstick. It applies evenly and I need only one coat and it lasts on me all day with out fading. It stays on lips all day, but it does feel sticking when I put my lips together. When swatched on hand it doesn't feel sticking at all, which is weird.


About the claim its kiss proof, I have to say its 99% true. I do get slight transfer, but on swatch I can rub it and it doesn't go anywhere. Because the formula of it is so long lasting, it does feel drying on lips. I can feel the dryness end of the day, but its perfect for times when I do need my lipstick to last a long time. I wouldn't wear it daily, but special occasions its brilliant ;) Down below you can see how it looks on lips. Its so pretty shade and I'm so happy I got this shade in my beauty subscription box :D


Of you are interested checking it out it and other shades, you can do so here.

Review: Joik Citrus Bath Truffles


Hi loves! I have been testing out Joik Citrus Bath Truffles (310g, 11.93 EUR). Joik is Estonian beauty brand and they make 100% natural bath, body and skincare products. You can read my previous review on them here.


These come in a box and all the truffles are packaged in individual squares. These are with lemon, orange, grapefruit essential oils and also contains nourishing cocoa butter. These all help to provide nourishment to the skin when your taking a bath.

I  use one truffle in the bath (which is recommended) and I usually don't add anything extra. I let it slowly melt in the bath water. This is not going to give you bubbles or chance the color of the water. This makes the bath water more oily and it made me feel so relaxed and my skin after the bath was so soft and hydrated. I didn't need to apply any moisturizer after the bath. I have very dry skin on my legs and it almost never happens with bath product that I don't need to moisturize my skin after bath.


These also smell so good citrusy, which I find is appropriate scent for the beginning of summer as its light and fruity. The scent is not over powering, which I like, because I can use my fragrance when I want to go out in the evening and the scent from the truffle doesn't effect my parfume scent.  


I really loved this one, but my all time favorite is still their white chocolate bath truffles (review), which are amazing! If you are interested in the citrus ones, you can find these on Douglas NL (link).

Review: Balance Me Super Moisturising Body Wash


Hi loves! How are you all doing? I have been sick the past 3 days and still am, but I feel bit better and I'm able to blog :) Today's post is on Balance Me Super Moisturising Body Wash (200ml). The formula of it is richly hydrating and claims to be dry skin friendly.


The shower gel comes in a yellow squeeze tube (on their page I found only 280ml bottle, which comes with a pump) and I love the yellow packaging. It looks so happy :) Its easy to get the product out and the formula is with out parabens, sulphates, petroleum, mineral oils, silicones, dea, pegs propylene glycol, artificial fragrances and colors. It does have a herbal scent to it, which I personally like, but it took me sometime to get use to it.


How to use: Massage it onto wet skin and wash off. 

It doesn't dry my skin out like some other shower gels do. It leaves it hydrated, but I still need to moisturize my skin after shower, because its just not enough (I have very dry skin). It has been my goto shower gel, because how gentle it is to my skin and the herbal scent is so relaxing. I also like the texture of the body wash, its not too runny, more like proper gel.



I definetly will buy a new bottle after I finish this one and maybe try a new body wash as well :) I also like 99% of the ingredients are natural. If you are interested in this you can find it in bigger bottle on their pager (link).

Beauty Haul: Ilu Sõnum


Hi loves! I picked up few amazing beauty items from Ilu Sõnum. Its a beauty fair, which takes place in Estonia twice year: spring and fall.

Lets jump in and the first thing I picked up is a love body butter from Olivolio Botanics and its their Donkey Milk Body Butter (review). Its for dry skin and makes my skin feel so hydrated and soft. I didn't expect to find it there, so it was a nice surprise.



Next I got MICA Beauty Makeup Perfecting Primer (30ml). It instantly makes the skin matte and smooth. It doesn't contain any parabens and if you didn't know before they do mineral makeup. I haven't tried their makeup before, but I do like some of their skincare items like the peeling gel (review) and the cleansing milk (review). I'm so excited to try their makeup base and I'll let you guys know how I like it :) Hopefully it will keep me matte all day, fingers crossed.




I ended up getting 2 skincare items from Premier and the first one is their Perfecting Eye Serum (30ml), I have very dry under eye area and I try this serum there on my hand and it made it so soft that I couldn't leave with out it. Their skincare is expensive, but I did get a free gift with it and I could choose between face serum or an eye cream. I picked their Prestige Concentrated Face Serum (50ml). Its so generous gift and I can't wait to start testing everything out. I also like the dark blue packaging.







The last two items I got, are from a new brand to me and it is -417. Its from Isreal and I got their Aromatic Body Peeling Kiwi & Mango (450g), which I could test out there on my hands and it made the skin so smooth. Another item I couldn't resist :D I also got from the same range their Aromatic Body Butter Kiwi & Mango (250ml) and this made my hands so soft. I got a free gift with the purchase, which is their Hand moisturizer (50ml). Its in perfect size for traveling. 



This is it for my little haul :) I'm so excited to try out the new goodies and I'm happy I found a new brand to try as well. It was a great trip :)


Have you tried any of these items?
