New products from my birthday.

Last friday was my birthday, I turned 21.

My boyfriends father and his girlfriend gave me a sort of goodiebag. It contained lots of nice little products, and what they referred to as “the real gift” – a giftcard to The Body Shop.
Here I have some pictures of the things from the bag and the products I bought with the giftcard (and some extra money)

I’ll start with the goodiebag. When I got the bag and started looking at the things, she said “I thought you needed something to blog about.”

DSCN1099

 

Satsuma Shower Gel – I actually got this when I bought a Chocomania Scrub and Body Butter, but I included it here anyway.
Vitamin E Sink in moisture mask – I’ve needed a Moisture Mask for sooo long, so I felt that when it’s soon winter I had to get one.
A facial massager.
They also gave me a free perfume sample – White Musk, Smoky Rose

Aside from theese products I’ve also bought a chocomania scrub and body butter recently, but I forgot to take pictures of those.

 

Tonight I’m having a relaxing night at home so I’ll try a few of these products, like the vinyard peach ones, the hair products and the moisture mask and facial massager. But I will be back with pictures and reviews of all of these.

BB-Cream – Colour Comparision

As promised here’s a colour swatch and comparision of the Garnier BB-Cream in Light and the Maybelline BB-Cream in Light.

DSCN0970 On the top is the Garnier one and on the bottom the Maybelline one
DSCN0971 As you can see the top one is clearly visible while the bottom one is almost completely blended. So the maybelline one was a far better match for me.

I can’t say yet how it works since I’ve only used it ones. So I’ll get back on that.

Window Number 24 – 2012

and the 24:th and last window contained.

Lucka 24 Stängd

Shea Body Butter – 200 ml

Lucka 24 Öppen

Not much of a surprise that it was a body butter, but I really like that it was the shea one
I’ve been planning on buying a more neutral body butter, but I’ve tried to choose between Shea, Olive, vitamin E and Aloe.
The only problem I have with the shea scent is that it reminds me of Sun Screen, which makes me long for sund when I smell it.
As for the texture and feeling on the skin it’s like their other butters, I like it but if you need something that absorbes fast, don’t buy a butter.

As for the pictures in this post, my step-dad wanted the camera for the holidays, so I’m using my compact camera.

And with this I’ll wish my readers a Merry Christmas, I’m going to go fix the christmas ham for lunch.
What’s your favorite christmas traditions, food, decorations and movie?

Window Number 23 – 2012

In the 23:d window there was

Lucka 23 Stängd

Olive Beautifying Oil – 100 ml

Lucka 23 Öppen

I can honestly say, ever since I saw the look of the calendar this year I’ve been waiting for an olive product, it just felt as it would have at least one. I was right.

The beautifying Oils are dry oils that are quickly absorbed and fit to use everywere, face, body and hair, and claims to moisturise, smoothen an illuminate the skin. I have never used one of these regularly but I have the sweet lemon one since before. The olive scent is mild and I like it. I will use this more often than the lemon one.
As for the uses of the oil, I can’t answer yet. I have used it in my hair but didn’t like it. I like the feeling of it on the skin. I’m thinking of doing a test were I use the oil on half my face and my regular moisturizer on the other half, and the same with my legs. To see if the skin get different. But I think I’ll wait a while with that.

Window Number 22 – 2012

In the 22:nd window I got

Lucka 22 Stängd

Almond Hand and Nail Butter – 100 ml

Lucka 22 Öppen

Also a product that I already own, and probably my most frequently used hand cream.
I love it. Its smooth on the skin and smells faint and not overpowering. It lingers a while on the skin so it shouldn’t be used if you’re in a hurry.
This is always a part of my manicure routine, both on the nails and the hands.

Window Number 21 – 2012

In the 21:th window we found.

Lucka 21 Stängd

Warmin Mineral Mask – 100 ml

Lucka 21 Öppen

I have this mask already, but mine’s almost emoty, so this is great.
I use a facial mask once a a and often reach for this one if I’m not in need of any special target area. This is for all  skin types and when you rub it on your skin it really gets warm. It smells nice of eucalyptus and I always feel fresh and glowing after I’ve used this. The texture is a bit runnier than a clay but it still feels like one, and since it is a clac mask that is good.

If I have time in all the christmas things that is to be done I’ll do a christmas manicure tonight.

Window Number 20 – 2012

In window Number 20 there was

Lucka 20 Stängd

Camomile Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover – 250 ml

Lucka 20 Öppen

I got one of these last year to, and it’s a really nice remover. Sadly it doesn’t work on waterproof make-up, and I usually use waterproof mascara. They have a camomille remover for waterproof make-up to, it’s a cream and I’m hoping to try it sometime. Even though I’m not a fan of cream remover.
This is a watery liquid that’s easiest to use with a cotton pad/ball. I usually put some on a cotton pad, hold it against my eyelid for a few seconds and then gently pull it downwards to remove the make-up. It has a very mild scent that’s not disturbing at all.
I’m almost out of mine, so getting a new one is really good. Too bad it wasn’t the waterproof one.

Window Number 19 – 2012

And in the 19:th window there was

Lucka 19 Stängd

Rainforest Moisture Hair Butter for dry hair – 200 ml

Lucka 19 Öppen

As I guessed I got a hairbutter too.

I have this one since earlier too and I like it. I don’t reach for it since I have my Macadamia Hari Masque. But I usuallt keep this in my gym bag.
It smells sweet, kind of like honey and the texture is creamy and thick.
It leaves the hair soft and just like the schampoo and conditioner its free from Silicones, Parabens and Colourants.

Window Number 18 – 2012

Behind window number 18 there was.

Peppermint Cooling Foot Lotion – 250 ml

Lucka 18 Öppen

I already have a bottle of this foot lotion, and I use it at least once a week.
I try to moisturize my feet everyday before I go to bed. Bu usually I forget. I should put a foot cream visible on the nightstand.
I have four different foot creams, this one, the Peppermint Intense Foot Rescue and the Hemp Foot Protector, all from The Body Shop and then I have a Mineral Foot Cream from Shemen Amour.
I think the one I like the scent best on is the one from Shemen Amour, it smells sweet and almost fruity. while the one I like the least is the Hemp one, so I only use then one when I’m really dry.
Of the peppermint ones I use The Intense Foot Rescue more often than the Cooling  Foot Lotion, simply because I think it smells better. But the cooling foot lotion is the one I massage in after a pedicure.

Window Number 17 – 2012

In the 17:th window I got.

Lucka 17 Stängd

Divine Calm Massage Oil – 100 ml

Lucka 17 Öppen

I already have this massage oil and I Love it.
I’m a massage junkie. I love getting massage and this oil feels wonderful on the skin and it smells divine (pun intended)
The scent is dominated by lavender, it also contains camomille, but I don’t know if I feel the scent of that since I don’t know how it smell.
I really like getting a massage with this in the evening since it really helpes me relax.

There are more products in this scent, there’s a shower gel,a lotion, a body butter, a bath powder and an essential oil. I have the body butter and the shower gel. I really want the other products too. especially the bath powder.
