Review: Garnier Pure Daily Gel Wash

Hi lovelies, I hope you are all doing well. I showed you guys my haul a little while back, and now I am reviewing one of the products. I have purchased this product twice and would love to let you know what I think and read your opinions as well.

I have oily skin which is acne prone, therefore it takes quite some effort to look good. I have a lot of products included in my daily routine, this gel wash is also a part of it (hoping to do a video on this soon, let me know if you are interested).

The packaging is pretty simple and comfortable for use at home and even when travelling. When I use it at home, I don't close the top once I open it, but if you need to travel all you have to do is close it and open to once you get to your destination. It is easy to use; you just press out the amount you think is ok for your face. 1 squirt for me is fine as I apply it on a makeup free clean face.

It is a clear gel wash which contains salicylic acid and purifying zinc. Now I am going to get a little bit technical for a moment. Salicylic acid is a monohydroxybenzoic acid which is used to treat acne. When applied on the skin, it penetrates the follicles and helps exfoliate dead skin cells from within thereby keeping the pores free from cellular debris and reducing breakouts.
       
Because it contains salicylic acid and purifying agents, this product cleans and tightens the pores making your skin so much better. Right after you wash your face, you can feel that it is kind of matte.
       
I use this product on my face in the morning and at night and it doesn't dry me out (of course this also depends on your skin type and that your skin is moisturized regularly).
       
I have seen significant improvement in my skin and would definitely recommend this product for anyone with oily or combination skin. Pricing wise, I would say this product is very affordable. It costs about €5 and lasts for months because you only need a little. At Prizma, this product is on discount sometimes which makes it even cheaper.


Have you ever used this product? What do you think?

Gorgeous Advertisers {February 2013}

Hi lovelies. I hope your Monday was good, well now we I am back with another introduction to my advertisers. My Gorgeous Advertiser for the month has been Luchessa. You would probably have noticed her beautiful face in the sidebar. She is absolutely one of the most amazing people I have met. She is so kind and sweet, I cannot wait for when she visits Riga so we can meet up. Get to know her in this post and then go over to her blog and say hi.

Luchessa, Beauty Expression

A little about yourself:
I was born in Moscow city back in the day's, when The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics still existed. Later on my family moved to Germany, where i can be found these days. I've studies in Spain in the lovely city of Almería and traveled throught Mexico, where i definitely brought back my love for anything that sounds spanish! (I might have been a mexican girl in my past life.) 

Luchessa, Beauty Expressions by Luchessa, Blogger Friends

About your blog & what posts we can find: 
I started blogging in September 2012, so my beauty blog is still new and fresh. I love what i do, especially the people who i got to meet through my blogging experience. I think the beauty community is one of the most caring and sharing ones i ever came across. You can find product reviews, must-have tips, hot spots when it comes to traveling, nail designs, face & body care news and anything we girls all love to discover. More about my blog you can find in my Confessions of a Beauty Blogger TAG.

Where can we find you (links):
I'm also to be found on TwitterHelloCotton and Bloggers.

What else do you do other than blogging:
I'm working as kind of a guide in different exhibits, doing some translations, but also trying to travel a lot, which is a big passion of mine. Hopefully I get to visit the beautiful city Riga, where the lovely Nia is located these days. I think it would be really nice to meet some day. :) (Don't worry my Beauties, i'll be most probably doing a "What is she wearing" blog post, since Nia is always so stylish!)

What are your favourite stores to shop?
I really enjoy Sparituals, Kiko makeup Milano, the Body Shop and 360° Accessories (obviously an accessory shop).

What are your top 3 favourite posts:
When if comes to blog posts written by others, I try to do a "favorites of the season" and feature the ones I liked the best, such as here.
If we are talking about my own favorite posts, it should be these:

Please feel free to stop by my blog any time and leave your feedback. I'd love to hear from you. :)

Kolonna & Prizma Beauty Haul

Hello my gorgeous readers, I thought that today I will show you some of my latest purchases from Kolonna & Prizma. I stopped by the store about 2 weeks ago because I wanted to try on different high end foundations so my lovely friend can help match it to a MAC. So since I was there anyway, I decided to get a few things.


Garnier Pure Daily Gel Wash 
I have used this product once and I really liked how it worked on me so I decided to try it out some more. I will be reviewing this product once I can tell what effect it has alone on the skin which means I'll have to stop my usual routine and just try this one out for a while.

Bourjois Blush in 95 Rose de Jaspe
I have been waiting a long time to get another blush because the colours just don't seem to fit me right. So when I was at the store and my friend who works there suggested I try this one, I took it... Because I trust her fully when it comes to makeup decisions (she hasn't made a single bad suggestion for me since we got to know each other).

Artdeco eye shadow in 41
After the first time I got my makeup done by Anitra (who is now my friend), I was looking to slowly purchase the products she used on me as it looked absolutely fabulous. Among other things, she used the green eye shadow from an artdeco palette which made my brown eyes look so much brighter and I absolutely adored it. So she helped me pick out a shade of green similar to what she used on me.

Bourjois Maxi Format Makeup Remover
At the time when I was at the store. They were having a spend over X LVL (I cannot remember if it was 10 or 12 or something) and get the makeup remover free. Since I was getting the blush anyway and was running low on nail polish remover. Those were what I went for and got this product for free. I was really happy with that.

Bourjois Nail polish remover
I like to use acetone free nail polish removers as they are much better for the nails and do not cause damage like nail polish removers with acetone. I have been doing this for over a year I think now so even thought this one in particular was a little bit more expensive than my usual one, I got it because I basiclly split the cost between it and the makeup remover since I was getting it for free.

I will be reviewing them all at some point on the blog, so if you want to know what I think about these products, do check back.


Have you used any of these products?

Laid Back Valentine's Day Outfit

       Hello my lovelies, It has been a while I posted and I do hope you missed me. I missed blogging and missed seeing your lovely comments. Well, I am back now and thought I should put up one of the outfits I thought of for a laid back Valentines day. Tomorrow the movie is going to be full of teenagers on dates and restaurants are going to be full of everyone. I always celebrate Valentines Day but as my birthday is only a week away and hubby's birthday is in the beginning of March, we usually keep it more or less simple. So here is what I came up with for a casual day to share some love with your other half.

Laid Back Valentine's day Outfit




       I love this outfit and wish I could wear it myself but I am missing some key pieces. It is very simple yet trendy and has something very sexy about it. Think stripped meets floral meets edgy. The studs on the jumper add some edge to this outfit and the bag adds a more girly floral aspect. I kept the makeup simple as the colours of the other items are quite deep.
       I think it is a great outfit for something in the center and then get all snuggled in together at home. So if you haven't decided what to do or what to wear. Give it a thought.

I hope you all have a wonderful day tomorrow. Don't forget to enter my giveaway.

Gold Sequin Headband (Hettie Hair Accessories)

A while ago found this lovely lady through my social media best friend (Twitter) who was interested in getting her headbands reviewed. I like to wear headbands from time to time, so I jumped on the offer. I was given the opportunity to pick out my favourite headband and a little something for all my amazing readers.

The name of the lovely lady is Hettie and she is the owner of Hettie Hair Accessories. Hettie Hair Accessories sells lots of amazing pieces starting from hair pin, headbands, fascinators and more. Whether you are looking for a more casual piece or an item for a party/ wedding, you will find it there. There are so many different items for different styles and occasions. You definitely have to check it out. It may seem pricey at first, but these items are handmade and one of a kind.

Here is the headband I picked out for myself. It is a lovely gold sequin headband with ribbon to fasten it. It also has some glittery fabric which makes it so shiny and pretty. I am seriously in love with it as it goes with well anything. Everything is made with so much care and the materials used to make the headband are clearly of high quality. Even the ribbon doesn't fray {okay maybe it is just me and my crooked hands, but seriously!}. It is absolutely gorgeous.

Look how lovely it is on my hair. Isn't it just amazing?! I cannot yet think of 1 outfit I would wear and this headband wouldn't fit as I mostly wear gold jewelry. Rock on summer!!! I am ready.
I would like to say a huge thank you to Hettie. This is my favourite headpiece yet.

What you love most about blogging: 
I love sharing things with other people, and blogging allows me to do that. My absolute favorite part though is reading the comments I receive. I'm truly grateful for each one that I get.

Ideas/plans regarding your blog: 
I'm trying to be more consistent with posting, and I'm looking forward to starting a celebrity inspired series. I've recently started a blog hop/link party that will be up every Friday, and Mani Mondays!

What else do you do other than blogging: 
I work at a tanning salon, and I take care of my husband and furry family, which becomes a full time job. I also love reading fashion magazines and other blogs to see what's new in the beauty world, as well as pinning way too many things on pinterest. 

What are your favourite stores to shop? 
For clothing, Forever 21 & Charlotte Russe. I love H&M, but I don't have one anywhere near me. As far as anything else, I love Sephora and Ulta. 

Some interesting things about you: 
I rescued 2 chinchillas from an abusive home, and they've now had two babies. I also rescued a kitten who was about to go to the pound. I absolutely love animals. I'm 100% obsessed with Harry Potter & Twilight both, please don't judge me for that! Haha. I loved the books way before the movies. I've been in and out of college for over 7 years, but haven't ever gotten a degree because I've switched my major around so many times. Also, I love video games. Zelda: The Ocarina of Time will forever be my favorite game, with Final Fantasy X being a very, very close second. So, obviously, I'm a bit of a nerd. ;)
