In window 8 there was…

Two “face satchels”

One for the Vitamin E Sink-in Moisture Mask. That I’ve made a first impression post about here.

And one for the Vitamin C Microdermabrasion. I actually bought a full sized of this one a little while ago, will post that entire haul soon.

Last year when I got a similar window, I was slightly irritated, this year I know that it’s because the extra money is needed for another window. Which is exciting.

I always save these satchels, I literally have a pile of face satchels. They’re great to have handy if I need to go away for a while, since I then won’t have to bring entire jars/tubs/tubes with me

Window 24 – 2013

The last window this year held…

Nutriganics drops of youth!

Wow! I had a few guesses and hopes about this window, this was not even on my list. I did not expect this one. But I’m so excited.

This is a serum for dry skin with the first signs of ageing. It’s beriched with stem cells from sea lilies to stimulate skin renewal.
I’ve wanted to try this for a while but haven’t because of the price. But know I can finally try it. The other Nutriganics products I’ve tried has been wonderful.

First impression: Vitimin E Sink In Moisture Mask

In my last post I mentioned some things I got/bought for my birthday.
I’ve tried some of them and here is a firts impression of the Vitamin E Sink In Moisture Mask from The Body Shop

icture from The Body Shop’s Homepage

 

The description says to Put on a thin layer, leave on for about 10 minutes and then just wipe of the excess. So when I tried this, that’s what I did, except I left it on for about 20 minutes.

My first thought instantly was “wow, my skin is really smooth now”. Before using this I had some dry and even some flaky parts on my face, but after only one use those were gone, even now  4 days later they haven’t returned. So I’ll definetly use this more to see if it works in the long run. I’m also thinking of using it as an overnight mask, putting it on in the evening and then sleeping on my back with this on. Since it is a sink in mask I don’t really believe you can leave it on for too long.

I did notice that while it sunk in well it left a kind of sticky residue, so while it probably works as a night moisturiser I wouldn’t use it in the day.
The texture is gelly, i found that the best way of getting it up from the tub wasnt to sweep my finger in it but tap my finger into it.
So far I can’t say much about the scent since I haven’t decided what I think of it yet, but there will be a more elaborate review when I’ve tried this more.

Having tried only this product from the Vitamin E series makes me want to try more of them, Facial wash, hand treatment and body butter, to mention some.

Window Number 11 – 2012

In the eleventh window there was

Lucka 11 Stängd

Rainforest Moisture Conditioner – 250 ml

Lucka 11 Öppen

As I guessed I got a conditioner too.
It’s from the same range as the shampoo I got in the fourth window.
As I said then I tend to like the conditioner more than the shampoo. But I’ll try these out together later today. I also have a Moisture Hair Butter that I’ll use. So I can make a first impression review on these products together, I’ll post that tonight. Sure I’ve used the Hair Butter before, but still.

The Conditioner smells like the shampoo, sort of sweet but not to much. I like the scent. The texture is firm, just like I think a conditioner should be.
Just like the Rainforest Shampoos, the Rainforest Conditioners – and the hair butters – are without silicones, sulphates, colourants and parabens, which I think is really good.

I actually don’t like that I got full sized shampoo and conditioner in the calendar since I most likely won’t use them that much.
