NOVEXPERT



Novexpert Milky Cleanser, Hydro-Biotic Face Cream and Comforting Face Mask

Find them HERE.


Helllooo helllo, been a long time since I've posted something into the beauty category, but wait no longer since my every-winter-so-dry skin presents a  whole new range of products that it loves so much! I've heard so much good about the French beauty product range called Novexpert and now that I recieved the three things, I can comfirm they are really seriously good quality and advanced products that you can actually feel a difference with. So I'm gonna go ahead and talk more about each three more below!

_________________________________


Tere teree, on möödas pikk aeg viimatisest ilukategooria postitusest, aga enam kauem ootama ei pea, kuna mu talviti-super-kuiv nahk tahab teile esitleda päris uut nahatoodete sarja, mis talle nii nii meeldivad! Ma olen varem juba palju head kuulnud tollest Prantsuse nahahooldusbrändist Novexpert ja nüüd kui mul need kolm toodet kasutuses on olnud, võin kinnitada, et tegemist on tõesti ülimalt kvaliteetsete ja uudsete toodetega, millega on tegelikult ka erinevust tunda. Seega allpool räägin kõigist kolmest ka lähemalt!





1. Milky Cleanser - I've always found micellar water a bit easier to use, but this hydro-biotic milk cleanser changed my opinion. It's as easy to use, as it requires no scrubbing, is gentle on my eyes and well, it just smells so pleasant too. I am no expert of skin care, I just like what works on me, and since I've noticed that magnesium is really good for me in every way, then I was happy to find this in my new cleanser as well.

2. Hydro-Biotic Face Cream - I kind of hate mornings to be honest, but I am really excited to put this cream on so it has made my mornings just a little better (yes, my mood can be changed by material things too). This one is a slighlty greasy product as it is directly made for dry skin, but it doesn't feel bad, but feels like velvet, just as it says on the package. It does its magic as it fixes the dry under make-up and contains magnesium as well. Oh and the scent...yes. 

3. Face Mask - I've only tried it once, so I have to use it a bit longer to tell if I like it a lot, but I really love the things it contains like pomegranate, coconut oil, shea butter, etc. (check them out on the website above). I am sure it does sooo much good for my skin and it's a really relaxing mask to put on. It's 100% natural, has no particular scent to it and fits all skin types. Its aim is to calm down redness and moisturize, so that sounds super good! 




1. Meigieemalduspiim - mulle on alati tundunud, et mitsellaarvett on kuidagi lihtsam kasutada meigieemalduseks, aga see piim muutis mu meelt. Seda on samuti väge kerge kasutada, kuna kratsima ei pea, on õrn silmadega ning lõhnab ka väga mõnusalt. Ma pole eriti suur nahahooldus spetsialist, mulle lihtsalt meeldib kõik, mis minu peal toimib. Seepärast ongi mul väga hea meel, et see piim sisaldab magnessiumi, kuna ma märganud, et magneesiumisisaldusega asjadel on alati väga hea toime mu puhul. 

2. Hydro-Biotic Näokreem - Mulle ei meeldi hommikud absoluutselt, kui aus olla, aga ma olen väga põnevil selle peale kandmisest iga päev ja see teeb mu hommikud natukenegi paremaks (jah, ka materiaalsed asjad teevad mind tihti rõõmsaks). See toode on pisut 'rasvasem', kuna selle sihtgrupiks on ikkagi kuiv nahk, kuid ta ei ole nagu selline raske vaid sametine, täpselt nagu pakendil kirjas. Teeb oma võlukunsti, kuna nahk pole kuiv meigiall enam ning sisaldab samuti magneesiumi. Oh jah see lõhn...mhm.

3. Näomask - Ma olen seda jõudnud vaid korra proovida nii et ma peaksin seda kasutama pisut veel, et öelda, kui palju see mulle meeldib, aga see sisaldab igatahes väga põnevaid asju nagu kookoseõli, rukkilill, granaatõun, shea või jne. (vaata lähemalt veebilehel). Usun, et see teeb mu nahale hullult head ja see on samuti väga kerge ja mõnus peale kanda. Mask on 100% naturaalne, sellel pole mingit erilist lõhna ning sobib kõikidele nahatüüpidele. Peaks leevendama punetust, ärritust ning niisutama - kõlab ju super hästi! 


BEAUTY FAVOURITES






Hey girls! As I know some of you have really liked the "favourite beauty products" posts, so I'll try to create one for you guys often and it's easy cause new favourites come along and I get a lot of recommendations myself too. So this time it's not only hair or make-up, but a mix of all kinds. Hope you will find this post useful and well, let's get to it! 








Make-up is probably what I love changing the most, so here are the latest new finds. 


1. Clinique Redness Solutions with SPF - to be honest, I used that one more during the Summer, because of the SPF. This foundation-like creme reminds me of CC cream, it's lighter than a normal foundation so perfect for hotter days and coverage is great!


2. Pupa Bronze Palette - I regret not having an opened photo of it here, but it consists of 4 different shades and an introduction how to make the best out of them when contouring. The colours match my skin so well and there is also a highlighter in the mix.


3. Clarins Lip Perfector - I know I know, I've already reviewed that one, but now I got a shade lighter from the cruise ship. It's still light pink, but has more of a brownish undertone. Definitely better for Fall!


4. Pupa Eye Pencil - Basically I could add here which ever Pupa black eye pencil. I think I've tried them all and they are all super good! Pigment is really strong and it stays on so well.




 



Here are two treatment products I've loved for a long time now and both are recommendations from others who have gotten great results from aswell. 


1. Franck Provost Expert Nutrition Masque - I use hair masks a lot and this has been my favourite for a couple of years now. Sometimes I use it as a 3-minute mask in the shower, instead of conditioner, and sometimes I leave it into wet hair overnight and wash it off in the morning. Hair is super silky after using this and smells just as good as the mask and for a long time. 


2. Eveline 8 in 1 Nail Care - So the story behind this is that I went to my friend's party and since I hadn't seen my friend over such a long time, I got blown away by her SUPER long nails. So when I asked how the hell did she grow those, she told me about this nail polish. I immediately bought this for myself, but you need to use it exaclty as they describe, otherwise the result will be slow. So I managed to somehow keep up with the routine and my nails grew soo fast and they were really strong. So hard to believe when you've had fragile nails all your life, it's like some miracle. Now I bought a new one after breaking my nails again and I can again see it already work it's magic. 






And lastly, I have a really good quick make-up removal tip for you.


1. Make-Up Eraser Cloth - so I had the chance to try this out and I wasn't really sure this could actually work, but this amazingly soft thingy actually removes make-up so easily! Of course I still prefer to use micellar water daily, but this is so perfect when you have to stay over at someone's or travel. I used it on my latest cruise ship trip for example. Much more convenient to have this little cloth than a bottle of micellar water and pads and all that. How it works is that you make it wet, swipe your face with it and wash it, that's it. Really. 



THE KONJAC SPONGE




The Konjac Sponge





Beauty poooossstt! I never knew about skincare sponges until we bought two face sponges straight from divers in Rhodes. After that I discovered how soft these make my face feel and how well they cleanse off leftover make-up that your micellar water might not wash off. Now I got a gift from Konjac Sponge and I tried out their all natural sponge developed from the Konjac plant. It's completely vegan and comes in many different ranges - for oily skin, for dry and so on. 


The sponge is silky soft when wet, deeply cleanses skin and the delicate eye area, refines pores, removes water-based make-up and works with or without cleanser. The sponge leaves the skin radiant and rejuvenated, is suitable for sensitive skin and is colouring and additive free. Sounds great, right?


So what I have done so far is removing make-up with micellar water and then rub my face with the sponge and I also like to use the sponge in the mornings to freshen up my face. I don't know why I don't dare to remove full make-up with it, maybe afraid to ruin it haha, but I will try it towards its life-span end (it lasts up to 3 months usually). You have to take good care of it though. I can assure it leaves my skin very soft after use and removes all the make-up bits I have left so it has found its sure spot in my bathroom from now on!

Ilu postituuuuus! Ma ei teadnud varem midagi näohooldus käsnadest kuni me ostsime kaks taolist käsna otse sukeldujatelt Rhodosel. Pärast seda avastasingi, kui pehmeks need mu näonaha teevad ja kui hästi nad puhastavad näolt üleliigse meigi, mida mitsellaarvesi kätte ei saa. Nüüd sain kingi Konjac Sponge'i tootjatelt ja proovisin järgi nende loodusliku Konjac'i taimest valmistatud käsna. See on täiesti vegan ja tuleb mitmes erinevas variandis - rasusele nahale, kuivale, jne. 


Märjalt on käsn siidiselt pehme, puhastab sügavuti nahka ja õrna silmaümbrust, vähendab poore ja eemaldab ka veekindla meigi olenemata, kas kasutad lisatoodet juurde või ei. Käsn jätab naha särava ja noore, on sobilik õrnale nahale ega sisalda värvaineid ega lisaaineid. Kõlab hästi, eks?


Nii, mina olen siis siiani kasutanud käsna nii, et eemaldan esmalt meigi mitsellaarveega ja siis hõõrun nägu Konjac käsnaga üle, ning lisaks meeldib mulle sellega hommikuti oma nägu üle käia, kuna see teeb olemise kohe värskemaks. Ma ei tea, miks ma pole julgenud veel proovida sellega täismeiki eemaldada. Võib-olla kardan selle ära rikkuda haha, aga eks ma proovin kindlasti järgi siis, kui selle eluiga lõppema hakkab (käsn on kasutuskõlbulik umbes 3 kuud). Selle eest tuleb aga head hoolt ka kanda. Võin kinnitada, et käsn jätab naha väga pehmeks pärast kasutamist ning eemaldab meigijäägid ilusti näolt, seega on see toode leidnud oma kindla koha minu vannitoas!

LET'S DISCUSS MAKE-UP






Hey guuuys, hope you had a fantastic Midsummer! I spent mine with my two best friends at Pühajärve and spent the next day sunbathing on the lake. The party was a lot of fun, got to see Inna live whose songs I've always enjoyed during summertime. Now I decided to come visit Joonas in Tallinn, so I'll be here until 30th. As I'm waiting for him to get back from training to go to the beach, I figured I should show you my new make-up favourites again. Have discovered a bunch of those lately, in addition to my fav make-up posts HERE and HERE. So here come my Summer make-up recommendations for you:




1. I discovered this little blunt brush, finally something I can contour eyebrows well with. No idea why I haven't found this one before, such a helper elf. 

2. Yves Saint Laurent Touché Eclat foundation - I know I recommended this one in another post, but the foundation now has a new formula that is as light on the skin as the old one, but has even better coverage. The beautiful glow still remains, now it's just even better! 

3. Another thing I only recently discovered and now can't survive without is the make-up fixer. I bought the Pierre René one. I don't know how I went to parties and events without it until now..I mean you need your make-up to stick on your face for the whole night, right!?

4. Aaand finally tried out the Beauty Blender products I recieved from Beauty Blender Estonia. I will soon post more about those on blog, but these little fellas are so helpful!

5. Urban Decay Naked concealer...I mean...WHAT IS THAT? I love it so so much, it is hard to get and rare and I totally understand why. Perfect coverage, perfect light yellow shade for my skintone, perfect in every way basically! A must have!

6. Then I felt like having a pinkish orange eyeshadow tone to use for shading on the eyes and as a fun colour during Summer. Also saw it on many of my favourite bloggers, mixed with brown eyeshadow. I got my perfect orange tone from Make-Up Store

7. Of course I didn't stop with Candy K by Kylie Cosmetics and also got a bit more pink and light shade Koko K. I think these lip kits need no more hype, everyone already knows how gorgeous these are. So addictive!

8. And lastly, the matte hydrating primer by Bioderma I like to use under my foundation, you can find more talk about the new Bioderma products HERE.




Hope you found those tips helpful and gave you some cool new products to test out! Gotta run now, so let this be in English only this time! x





BIODERMA










So was happy to be invited by Bioderma Estonia to meet the older and newer products of Bioderma. I only had heard of the micellar water, as it is highly recommended everywhere, but had no idea they have so many interesting products for skin and hair! The micellar water is great, does it job quite smoothly.


So I got to test out the shine-control moisturiser, which is my new favourite to use under foundation, because my skin tends to get shiny after wearing foundation for a longer time and this moisturises and takes away the shine at once, I mean how great is that!? Definite favourite of the bunch!


Then I tested out the moisturising radiance booster, which I would probably appreaciate more during Winter time when my skin gets really dry, but right now I like to tip my nose in it haha. Definitely gonna cover up my face with it on make-up free days because it has SPF30 in it to protect my face from direct sun.


Then I got to test out two additional products due to my quiz win haha. The Nodé shampoo is kind of like water in a bottle, but is actually so good for your scalp and gives you a bit of shine. I only got to test it once so I don't know about longer period, but I do know it smells like nature and freshness, I love it! And in addition to shampoo I got this cute brush. Such a handy wide brush!


It was nice to hear about the products in the beautiful atmosphere of Tuljak restaurant! Gonna be excited to try out other Bioderma products. Definitely gonna keep an eye on them from now on in pharmacies all over Estonia!

Mul oli väga hea meel, kui Bioderma Eesti kutsus mind tutvuma vanemate ja uuemate Bioderma toodetega. Ma olin varem kuulnud ainult Bioderma mitsellaarveest, mida oli igalpool soovitatud, aga mul polnud aimugi, et Biodermal on tegelikult nii palju huvitavaid tooteid nahale ja juustele! Mitsellaarvesi on väga mõnus, teeb oma töö ilusti ja kergelt ära. 


Sain veel järele proovida läikivuse vastase niisutaja, mis on mu uus lemmik asi jumestuskreemi alla, sest mu nahk läheb väga kergelt läikima, kui jumestuskreem on kauemat aega peal olnud. See toode võtab ära selle läikimise ja niisutab samalajal veel nahka ka, kui hästi see veel kõlab!? Täielik lemmik Biodermalt!


Siis proovisin järgi sära anda niisutaja, mida ma ilmselt hindaksin veel rohkem talvel, kui mu nahk kipub kuivem olema, kuid praegu meeldib mulle väga oma nina sellesse kasta haha! Kindlasti katan kogu näo sellega meigivabadel päevadel, kuna see sialdab SPF30, mis kaitseb nägu ilusti päikese eest. 


Jaaa tänu viktoriini võidule sain katsetada paar toodet rohkem haha. Nodé shampoon näeb välja nagu vesi pudelis, aga on nii hea peanahale ja annab juustele sära ka väheke. Ma ei oska pikaajalist review'i siia kirjutada, kuna olen testinud vaid korra, aga saan kindlalt öelda, et see lõhnab nagu värske loodus ja I love it! Ja lshampooniga koos tuli see vahva juuksehari, väga mõnus lai!


Oli vahva kuulda nendest toodetest ilusas Tuljaku restorani atmosfääris! Ootan põnevusega, kui saaksin veel järgi proovida erinevaid Bioderma tooteid, seega hoian neil silma peal apteekides üle kogu Eesti! 





WORK OUT WITH SKINNY COFFEE





Get your Skinny Coffee HERE




So last month I used the 28 day skinny coffee program next to my gym routine and eventhough I had to take lesser amounts of coffee because of already being pretty skinny, I loved how it made me feel very clean and energetic and I am very sure it helped to shape my body even more. That's why I'm starting another 28-day program as soon as I get my gym card here in Estonia. Time to achieve all the body goals! 


Read more about Skinny Coffee from my blogpost HERE. To get your Skinny Coffee use to 20% off discount code MERYL20 on their website! 



______________________________________________________



Nii, eelmine kuu jõin siis Skinny Coffee't oma tavalise jõusaali rutiini kõrvale ja kuigi ma pidin jooma pisut vähem, kuna olen juba piisavalt skinny, siis ikkagi meeldis mulle see puhas tunne ja energilisus, mis ma kohvist sain ja kindlasti aitas see kaasa mu keha ilusamaks 'voolimisel'. Seepärast alustangi uut 28-päevast programmi Skinny Coffee'ga kohe, kui saan oma jõukakaardi siin Eestis tehtud. Aeg on kõik eesmärgid täita taaskord!

IN MY MAKE-UP BAG - CONTINUED




Some of them are already super used, so they look a bit more worn out.



Hey girls, another beauty post and as promised, I would show you the rest of my everyday make-up favourites. You can find the first (and longer) post about the insides of my make-up bag HERE. As I mentioned in the last post, some of my favourites were left behind at J's place in Tallinn so I couldn't show them, but now they're back in Sweden with me and I've also managed to get my hands on some very new favourites in the mean time, so I put them here too. Unfurtunately, my favourite liquid eyeliner from Maybelline remained lost at J's place, maybe he ate it.. Anywhooo let's get to the list!



LIPS:


1. Essence XXXL Nude Lip Gloss 
                                                2. Kylie Lip Kit in shade Candy K (lipliner and matte liquid lipstick)
                 3. Maybelline Lipstick in shade Brazen Beige 
         4. Rimmel Lipliner in shade Cappuccino


      FACE:

                                   1. Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit in medium/light
2. Clarins Blush in Miami Pink
                3. Max Factor Brow Pencil in shade Hazel
                                   4. Chanel Vitalumiére Aqua Foundation in shade Beige



So that's the rest of it! Again if you are interested in some of those and need help finding them online then tell me in the comments, happy to help! Oh and about the Kylie Lip Kit, I know a lot of you have requested a review and I am already working on it, I've already done photos and so, but haven't decided yet if I should do it as a video (which I've never done before so that's why my make-up tutorial is terribly late too) or as photos.. let me know what you would like more! Hope you found these make-up posts helpful! <3


______________________________________________________________________________________________



Hei neiud, järjekordne iluteemaline postitus ning nagu lubatud toon teieni oma meigikoti ülejäänud sisu ehk siis siit tulevad mu igapäevameigi lemmiktooted. Esimese (ja pikema) postituse mu meigikoti sisust leiab SIIT. Nagu rääkisin siis osad mu lemmik meigitarbed ununesid Tallinnasse Joonase korterisse ja sellepärast ei saanud ma neid ka eelnevas postituses näidata, aga nüüd on nad minuga Rootsis ja vahepeal olen enda jaoks juba mõned uued lemmiktooted juurde leidnud seega viskan need ka siia. Kahjuks mu lemmik vedel silmalainer Maybelline'ilt jäigi Joonase juurde kadunuks, võib-olla sõi ta selle ära.. aaaga see selleks, asume listi juurde!



HUULED


1. Essence XXXL Nude huuleläige
                                                  2. Kylie Lip Kit toonis Candy K (huulepliiats ja vedel matt huulepulk)
                3. Maybelline huulepulk toonis Brazen Beige
           4. Rimmel huulepliiats toonis Cappuccino


NÄGU


                            1. Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit medium/light
         2. Clarins põsepuna toonis Miami Pink
          3. Max Factor kulmupliiats toonis Hazel
                                   4. Chanel Vitalumiére Aqua jumestuskreem toonis Beige



Ja ongi nad kõik kirjas! Jälelgi kui olete mõnest neist väga huvitatud ja vajate abi netist otsimisega, siis kirjutage mulle kommentaaridesse ja aitan rõõmuga! Kylie Lip Kit'ist rääkides, siis päris paljud teist on juba soovinud review'i selle kohta ja see on tulekul, pildimaterjal on kõik valmis, aga on vaja veel otsustada, kas teha see videovormis (mis oleks mulle väga keeruline, kuna see oleks mu esimene video ja selle põhjuse taha on kinni jäänud ka mu igapäevameigi video) või piltidena... andke mulle teada, kumb variant teile rohkem meeldiks! Loodan, et nendest meigipostitustest oli abi! <3

I hope you forgive me for tiny visuals since I woke up this morning very sick, but still had to attend a seminar this way and now I'm even worse off, trying to heal myself since uni doesn't wait for youuu. I really wanted to get this make-up post out of the way since I promised it a while back already so let's go!

I know I didn't mark any links to them, so if any of these is what you would need or if you would like any recommendations whatsoever, comment below and I will give you a link/recommendation on products! I actually have these two perfect shades of lipstick and lip pencil I recently bought and since I used them a lot, I managed to forget them into Tallinn at J's place and I think my favourite eyeliner is also there somewhere behind the couch so I can introduce those next time together with the bestbest Anastasia contour kit that is on its way to me finalllly. So yes, don't hesitate to ask me about make-up products since I have tested out endless amounts of them and would even surprise you with new cool brands!


In other news, I booked recently my flight for a brief visit home again, so I will be in Estonia (Viljandi & Tallinn) from 26th of march until 7th of April, exciteeed!!!

SKIN CARE FAVOURITES




Artdeco Face Scrub - HERE

Sephora Face Mask - HERE







Tilk! Hand Cream - HERE

Tilk! Facial Cream - HERE

Bodyshop's Eye Serum - HERE




Hey all my lovely readers, I'm back with another beauty post and it's again on the topic of skin care. I went out last night with friends and this morning my face feels a bit heavy and so I'm gonna go through my weekly routine again with my favourite products listed above.


I use this Bodyshop eye serum every single morning and I've even made a seperate post about it (find it HERE) and the hand and facial cream by Tilk! every 2-3 days. But yes it's time for the weekly face scrub and face mask again and what better way to fully cleanse your face than those two products by Artdeco and Sephora? The Artdeco face scrub was something my mom's friend recommended for her so we tried it out and loved it so much we got one each. It's basically a gel you rub on your face and neck, but while you do it, it starts to rub off all the "dirt" and make-up leftovers you have gathered during the week. After this is done it's time for the Sephora face mask which is the funniest thing though haha! J's mom got me this as a gift from Paris, she really recommended it. When you rub it on your face it takes the shape of a shaving cream and then it starts to feel like 10,000 ants run across your face. It's so funny and tickly the first time that I couldn't stop laughing haha, but it stops in like 2 minutes and then you just let it sit for 10 more minutes and wash it off. 


I'm glad I've started using more products on my skin, but still don't overuse them. You really need some extra care during wintertime and I've really seen great changes on my skin and my make-up base thanks to finding products that fit me. I actually had terrible skin when I was 18 and had to take some measures. So what I did was going to the doctor's, testing products so that all the things I use don't make my skin worse in any way (for example found the perfect make-up remover - Loreal Micellar Water - HERE) and just buying more expensive make-up because all the cheap foundations tend to crawl inside your face. That said, my next beauty category post will be on the everyday make-up I use and yes I know I've promised a make-up tutorial video and I have not forgotten about it one bit! It's the camera settings that keep my down, ugghhh! 


Hope you found something new for yourself from this post! Talk to you soon! <3

Tere armsad lugejad, olen tagasi järjekordse iluteemalise postitusega ning jällegi teemaks nahahooldus. Läksin eile sõbrannadega välja õhtul ja täna tunnen, et nägu on veidi raske ja tahab juba täna põhjalikku hooldust, mida teen rutiinselt igal nädalavahetusel. Ülal on välja toodud mu lemmiktooted, millega näonahk sügavalt puhtaks saada.


Kasutan ülalnäidatud Bodyshop'i silmaseerumit igal hommikul ning põhjuse selleks leiab varem tehtud postitusest SIIN, ning käte- ja näokreemi Tilk!'ilt kasutan iga 2-3 päeva tagant. Kuid jah, nüüd on aeg teha veidi põhjalikum puhastus ja selleks ongi mul esimesel pildil olevad Artdeco näokoorija ja Sephora näomask. Artdeco koorijat soovitas mu emale ta sõbranna ning me otsustasime selle nüüd lõpuks järele proovida. Mõlemale oli see nii meele järele, et ostsime teise veel. Lühidalt on see geel, mida hõõrud endal näos ja kaelal ning selle tulemusena tuleb kõik "mustus" ja meigijäänused maha. Kui see on tehtud on aeg käes Sephora maskiks ning see on tõega kõige naljakam asi, mis ma endale näkku olen pannud haha! Joonase ema tõi mulle selle kingina Pariisist ning väga soovitas kasutada seda. Kui seda näole kanda võtab see habemeajamisvahu oleku ja siis juba tundub nagu jookseks sul 10,000 sipelgat näos ringi. See on nii kõdi ja naljakas esimene kord, et ma ei lõpetanud naermist terve see 2 minutit kui see niimoodi kihiseb haha. Siis lased sel olla veel 10 minutit ja pesed veega maha. 


Mul on väga hea meel, etma olen hakanud kasutama rohkem tooteid oma nahal. Talvel tahab nahk veidi rohkem hooldust ja ma tõesti olen näinud häid tulemusi oma näol tänu oma rutiinile ning meigipõhi näeb ka kuidagi ilusam välja kohe. Mul oli 18-aastaselt veel väga kohutav nahk ning pidin midagi ette võtma. Esiteks läksin arsti külastusele, siis katsetasin kõiki vajaminevaid tooteid nii kaua kuni leidsin sellised, mis ei tee natukenegi mu nahka halvemaks (näiteks leidsin ideaalse meigieemaldaja - Loreal Micellar Water - HERE) ning hakkasin lihtsalt palju kallimat meiki ostma, sest odavad jumestuskreemid kipuvad nahka sisse ronima. Mainides meiki, jörgmine ilupostitus tulebki igapäevameigi toodete kohtaning jah ma teaan, ma olen lubanud teha ka igapäevameigi video ja ma pole seda unsutanud. Kaamera sätted ainult hoiavad mind veel tagasi, ughhh!


Loodan, et leidsite midagi uut siit postitusest! Ilusat nädalavahetust! <3 

HAIR & MAKE-UP
























Hair and make-up by Sandra Loit.



How busy have the last two days been...As I told you in a previous post, me and Kätriin were having two photoshoots in two days and we've both been driving back and forth between two cities for those. Yesterday we had the second and final shoot in Tallinn, which we are super excited about and we got our hair and make-up done by the talented Sandra Loit. She gave us this quite a nude eye look with dark lips and braided our hair the Kim K way. For the second photo series we changed our look but the first one looked exactly like the one on last photos.


I really loved the work Sandra did on us, she understood exactly what we wanted and made it even better. Her studio and she herself made me feel so comfortable. I would totally recommend to drop by her studio. She is a talented hairdresser and a make-up artist working with the Jane Iredale make-up products. The best about her work is probably the ceratine care she provides for hair. I've seen this work its magic on Kätriin and I love it!


Photos from the two series yesterday and the ones from day before will be soon on my blog! Tomorrow morning it's time to head back to Sweden again, talk to you soon ! <3

Kui kiired on viimased kaks päeva olnud...Nagu ma rääkisin eelnevas postituses siis mul ja Kätriinil seisis ees kaks erinevat pildistamist kahe päeva jooksul ning me mõlemad oleme edasi-tagasi ühest linnast teise sõitnud nende jaoks. Eile oli meie viimane shoot Tallinnas, milleüle me üliiiimalt põnevil oleme. Meigi ja soengu pildistamiseks tegi meile andekas Sandra Loit. Ta tegi meile sellise üsna nude look'i silmadele koos väga tumeda huulega ning punus meie patsid Kim K stiilis. Teiseks photoseeriaks muutsime oma välimust, kuid esimene nägi välja just selline nagu viimastel piltidel.


Mulle väga meeldis, mis Sandra meiega tegi. Ta sai täpselt aru, mida me ootasime ja tegi selle veelgi paremaks. Tema stuudio ja ta ise tekitasid ka nii mõnusa tunde. Soovitan väga läbi hüpata ta stuudiost. Ta on andekas juuksur ja meigikunstnik ning töötab Jane Iredale meigitoodetega. Olen kuulnud palju head just tema keratiinihoolduse kohta ning näinud selle maagiat ka Kätriini juuste peal, väga väga ilus! 


Pildid mõlemast eilsest seeriast ning päev enne toimunud shoot'ist leiab mu blogist peagi! Homme hommikul on aeg taas Rootsi poole asuda, räägib peagi! <3

WINTER BEAUTY KIT BY TILK!













Hand cream, facial cream and lip balm by Tilk!




Hello dears, I'm back with another beauty post! Gonna tell you about my winter favourites that keep my skin soft and silky during those pinchy cold days.


All the basics you need to stay moisturized during wintertime are provided by Estonian own brand Tilk!. So many things I love about those products. For a frequent plane traveller like me the size is so perfect. The design is also so eye-catching and the hand and facial cream are both so foamy. Since the herbs for the creams are collected from Saaremaa, the island where I was born, I like them even more haha! So more about each of them.


First, the facial cream I picked is for dry skin. Eventhough I do not have really dry skin, I get some dry spots now and then (e.g. my nose) and I think a little extra moisture is good during cold. It blends so well and again this foamy texture feels so nice on the skin. Another thing is that it smells soooo goood, it smells like citrus but isn't that strongy sour. I just wanna eat this cream up!


Then another thing I picked was the hand cream. Ah you need hand cream girls, your hands and cleavage are gonna be the first things ageing so we need to take care of them. The hand cream is basically the same as the facial one - foamy, feels light and nice and also smells like heaven, but not as citrus but something I can't even describe, a totally new kind of aroma for me. Ah so good! It also feels a bit greasy so you can tell your hands get a great dose of moisture.


And the lip balm, again something I would eat up if I could. It's like a mix of gingerbread and candy. The balm gives you a nice nude coloured gloss and makes the lips so silky. Always in my handbag from now on.


The best thing about Tilk! is that it's all bio. Made 100% in Estonia, but they ship across the world! Just pick out your favourite products in their e-shop HERE. You'll love them!

Hei vahvad, olen tagasi järjekordse ilupostitusega! Seekord räägin teile oma talvelemmikutest, mis hoiavad mu naha pehme ja siidisena nende näpistavalt külmade ilmadega.


Kõik, mida põhiliselt vajad talviseks niistuseks saab meie oma Eesti brändilt Tilk!. Mulle meeldivad nii paljud asjad nende toodete juures. Kuna reisin väga tihti lennukiga on nende potsikute suurus ideaalne resimiseks. Ka nende toodete diain on nii pilkupüüdev ning nii näo- kui ka kätekreem on nii mõnusalt vahused. Kuna ürdid nende toodete valmistamiseks on korjatud Saaremaalt, kus ma olen sündinud, meeldib Tilk! mulle veel enam haha! Nii nüüd kõigist kolmest natuke juttu.


Esiteks, näokreem mille valisin on kuivale nahale. Kuigi mul tegelikult kuiv nahk pole, siis vahest ikka tekivad näkku mõned väiksed kuibvad kohad (näiteks mul ninale) ja üldse ma arvan, et nägu vajab veidi rohkem niisutust niisuguste külmade ilmadega nagu praegu. Kreem imendub hästi ning selle vahune tekstuur on väga kerge ja mõnus. Teine asi on see, et see lõhnab niiii niii hästi, nagu sidrun, aga mitte ka päris nii hapu. Sööks selle kreemi ära kohe!


Teine asi, mis välja valisin oli kätekreem. Oi neiud, teil peab olema kätekreem olemas, sest teie käed ja dekoltee on esimesed asjad, mis vananema hakkavad ning nende eest peab juba praegu hoolitsema. Kätekreem on põhimõtteliselt sama, mis näokreem - vahuline, kerge ja lõhnab nii hästi, aga mitte nagu sidrun, vaid midagi muud. Lõhnab nagu midagi täiesti uut mu jaoks ja oh kui hästi! Kätele kandes on see veidi rasvasem nii et tunned, et käed saavad hea doosi niisutust. 


Ja huulepalsam, jällegi midagi, mille ma pintslisse pistaks kui saaks. Lõhnab nagu mix piparkookidest ja kommidest. Palsam annab ilusa nude värvi läike ja teeb huuled kenasti siidiseks. Kindel asi mu käekotis edaspidi. 


Parim asi Tilk! toodete juures on see, et nad on täielikult bio. 100% Eestis tehtud, aga saadavad tooteid üle maailma! VAli välja oma lemmikud nende e-poest SIIN. Oi sulle hakkavad nad meeldima!

FITNESSGURU - ONECASEIN















Finally I have recovered from antobiotics and can start my normal work out again. I had a terrible cold that evolved into something worse so I was in pretty bad shape for a month. Boo but enough of that, now I am back and highly motivated and it was perfect timing when Fitnessguru sent me a container with chocolate flavoured protein. This alone motivates me because it tastes sooooo goood and you can really feel how it gives you this extra strenght. I also drink one scoop before bed, love it so much mixed with milk. I just recently started using it so I have only been drinking shakes but I feel start google'ing for some snacks I could make with it. Of course I will share it all on blog. My flavour is the one from OneCasein called Double Rich Chocolate. Fitnessguru is so perfect for a beginner protein user like me, since you really can't go wrong with it. Oh and did I mention you get a cheerful shaker
with it?

_________________


Lõpuks lõpuks olen ma ennast peale antibiootikumide kuuri kogunud ning saan taas trenni tegema hakata. Külmetasi juunis päris koledasti ning see kõik arenes edasi millekski veel hullemaks seega ma olen päris vormist väljas olnud juba kuu, aga aitab sellest. Nüüd olen taas täiesti motiveeritud kõigeks ning Fitnessguru ajastas ka ideaalselt, kui saatis mulle suure potsiki proteiini kasutamiseks. Juba ainuüksi see motiveerib mind kuna
peale trenni ootab mind sheikeri täis seda hullult hea maitsega proteiini ning on tunda, kuidas see annab jälle jõudu juurde. Lisaks trennile joon ma ühe kulbitäie ka enne magamaminekut, piimaga, sest nii on see parim. Kuna ma alles äsja alustasin selle kasutamist, siis ma olen teinud ainult sheikerisse seda, aga nüüd google'dan välja kõik head snäkiretseptid proteiiniga ning jagan neid ka blogis. Maitseks on mul OneCasein Double Rich Chocolate. Kuna olen päris algaja proteiinidenosas, siis Fitnessguru on kõige ideaalsem algus, kuna see on kerge ja sellega ei saa väga valesti minna miski. Aah ja kas ma mainisin, et ühe potsikiga saab kaasa ka imeilusa sheikeri?

GLOW

 





Long time no post in beauty category!


As I've said I only introduce the best of the best things in all things beauty. I do mainly lead a fashion and lifestyle blog, but I also love to review all things good and worth mentioning now and then.

Tonight I thought I should tell you about something I actually heard about in Kenza's blog. I always wondered how her face has that certain beautiful glow to it and I found from her blog that it's the Dior Glow Maximizer primer. As I had some spare time in Copenhagen airport soon later, I figured I will go test it. At first it looked like a shimmering new year's eve dress but then it started to be one with the skin and oh how refreshing it looked! Bought it and later tested it under foundation because I don't have much tan yet and it so gently glows beneath the thin layer of foundation. Skin is so glowy (I apply to certain places on face of course which I want to make glowy), youthful and fresh. I also have it under foundation on the photos in the previous post, you can see it glow nicely on forehead and bridge of the nose and cheekbones.
More and more I grow trust into more expensive make-up. Started off with expensive foundations and grew into love for some blushes, serums and mascaras. Can't say all expensive make-up is good and worth the price though...but seems Dior's primers are top notch and I will go for the same in matte also!

Hope you got some great tips from here! Getting back to the research proposal now haha, good night!

DROPS OF YOUTH

 




Hey everyone! I haven't got a chance to do any outfit posts lately so I will introduce you to something even more useful - time for my short beauty section! This is for everyone struggling with loose eye-skin or dark eye-circles!

I'm gonna tell you about this amazing eye serum from Bodyshop (pictured). My friend Liisa, the make-up artist, did my make-up some months ago and told me that it's not good at all that I have those datk circles under my eyes and skin also seems a bit "loose" if she added eyeshadow so she asked me if I've used any eye-skin products. After I said no, she told me to go straight to Bodyshop and buy myself an eye-serum from their green, nature product line.
After I got back to Sweden it was the first on my list. So the saleswoman gave me this particular roll-top one (sorry I don't have the package for you) called Drops of Youth and told me to roll it on every morning/evening around all the skin surrounding my eyes, especially the dark circles with the really thin layer of skin from scrubbing off make-up and rubbing
eyes.
So after almost a month I saw some results already, the skin around my eyes was really firm and the dark circles I had were reaaally light, the skin was so much thicker. After 2 months they were gone..vanished, I only had thick beautiful skin under my eyes with the colour of the rest of my face. This thing worked! Like magic! And i continue to use it for I don't know 4th month I guess and it still doesn't run out. I thought dark eye circles were incurable. I owe a lot of thanks to my make-up artist and the saleswoman in the store because now I wake up and look good not half-dead zombie like, especially with really tired eyes it was the worst. I don't need tons of concealer around and under my eyes and ugh, life is so much better through mirror now haha!

So I hope that was helpful to some of you. Since it worked so well on me and also my friend make-up artist then I am sure it will work on you too! Give it a try!

Kisses!
