Testing! 1, 2! Testing!

April 24, 2015


For today's post I wanted to show you my new-ish products, some I bought recently and some I've been using for a while. Kind of a haul/first impression/products I've been using lately post. :)
Kimberly Sayer Ultra Light Moisturizer SPF 30 - if you're following me on Instagram, then you probably know I was looking for a new sunscreen. The ever so lovely Vanessa and Theresa recommended this one and after some browsing and looking for a more affordable sun cream, I splurged and ordered it on LoveLula. :) It's not cheap but if you've never ordered from LoveLula you can use the code LOVE15 and get 15% off your first order. Or you can get a sample on Amazingy. But I bit the bullet and just went for it, and my first impression is great! Like the girls said, it's so lightweight, non greasy, it doesn't leave a white cast and it's quickly absorbed. It's amazing! Ingredients are great, they use non-nano Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide, it's suitable for combination, oily and blemish prone skin. I've only used it once (on top of my usual skincare) but it's not drying so I guess if you use an oil or a cream underneath it, I don't see why other skin types shouldn't use it. :) And the packaging is huge! You get 120 ml (4oz) which is just wonderful! I'm really happy I bought this, thanks again Theresa and Vanessa!<3

Biopark Organic Avocado Oil - lately my skin has been acting up and becasue my skin always looks nicer when I eat avocado I decided to include it in my skincare routine. I was initially thinking of drinking it or somehow including it in my diet but I just can't, it's too heavy and thick, yuk! I'll just stay with my Hemp Seed Oil and Walnut Oil, which I really have to drink/eat more regularly because I always see great results. As for the avocado oil goes, it's awesome for my skin and hair and I'm not sure why I didn't think of using it sooner!
Terra Naturi Bronzing Puder Duo - I've never had a bronzer but wanted to try it this year so I decided to go for an affordable option and picked this one up. I've been loving their blush in the shade Royal Apricot, it's actually one of my favourite blushes ever, and so I thought that a bronzer from the same brand should be nice. And I was right! I've only used it twice but it's lovely. Not too dark, not too glittery, it's kind of perfect. I like that it has two shades, makes it more beginner friendly. :) I like it and even though I don't know much about bronzers I'd say go and try it, maybe you'll like it too.

S.W. Basics Body Scrub - this one is for all you coconut lovers. This body scrub smells so good! Tropical and delicious!<3 The brand is known for their simplicity (and the fact they're sold in Target), they use a minimal amount of ingredients and I think that's a great philosophy to have. The body scrub is made with only 3 ingredients, Organic Sugar, Organic Extra-virgin Coconut Oil and Organic Shredded Coconut. Did I say it smells like coconut cookies?! :)

Cocovit Coconut Oilthis is the coconut oil to have, in case you didn't already heard! I've been seeing it all over Instagram and read some rave reviews, like this one from the lovely Sarita. Go and check it out, her posts are always so thoughtful and full of informations. Sounds amazing and I'm happy to say I love it too! :)
Lavera Cover Stick - I like this concealer. It's thick and quite compact but also creamy, so it's best to apply it with your hands. It's quite opaque, I'd say medium to high coverage.

Bdellium Tools Smoky Eyes 5pc. Brush Set - I'm super impressed with these brushes! Eco-friendly, made with all sustainable bamboo handles and all vegan synthetic brushes. The bristles are super soft but compact, they pick up colour and deposit it well. I want more BT brushes! :)

Terra Naturi Effect Mascara - nice, everyday, super black mascara. It's not perfect but for 4€ it will do just fine. :) It's my third one so that must mean something.
Terra Naturi Duo Lip Pencil - I picked the 01 Indian Red, an every day, neutral shades that will go beautifully with almost every eye makeup. Because of the packaging I thought this would be more creamy and lipstick like, but it's not. It's not mositurizing so a lip balm is necessary. Not sure what to think about it, I'll have to try it underneath a lipstick and see how that goes.

Terra Naturi Cream Shadows - I chose two shade, the 01 Golden Brown and 03 Light Gold. I haven't tried them yet but I love the colours, shiny and metallic.

Terra Naturi Concealer - yellow based concealer in the shade 02 Honey. I'm not sure what to think about it yet, but my first impression is good.

Terra Naturi Liquid Eyeliner - after my disaster with Alverde liquid eyeliner I decided to go with Terra Naturi. These are two really affordable, even cheap, natural drugstore brands here in Slovenia, so whenever I want a product I don't use often I always go with one of them. I'm happy to say that they actually have some really nice product and this eyeliner is one of them. This is actually my second one, I already own the black colour, but I also picked up a brown colour. Eyeliner has great pigmentation, thin brush, it doesn't flake off and stays put all day!


Have you tried any of these products? Do you like them? :)

Have a wonderful weekend,

Jana xx

  9. So many goodness in one pic! I love the look of the cream shadows and the S.W Basics body scrub. I'm curious about the Lavera concealer stick, I'll have to take a closer look at it. I'm a newbie too when it comes to bronzers (and I know nothing about contour lol), because I usually wear blushes. Glad to hear your experience so far is good :) xx

    1. So happy you liked this post and that you found some interesting products :) Hihi oh don't get me started on contouring, I'm not even sure where to find a good contour product, I think everything would be too orange or muddy looking on me :P xx

  10. Me zanima kako se bo na dolgi rok obneslo avokadovo olje - ga že imam na listi za ''okoli oči'' že dolg čas ampak se bojim da bi dobila milje ali zamašene pore :/ Kar se velikokrat zgodi če uporabim preveč kokosovega olja.

    1. Ti bom sporočila :) Če se ne motim, je kokosovo olje lahko bolj komedogeno kot avokadovo, tako da upam, da ne bo nobenih težav :)

  11. I love coconut oil so my eyes is on the Cocovit. Now Avacado oil is something that in wondering why I haven't tried already. I can imagine it'll be great for the hair. Lovely collection xo

  12. Dearest Jana,

    I thought I had commented on this, I guess I was wrong! Thank you for the mention! I'm seriously so glad you love it as much as we do. I think my favorite part is that it comes in such a huge size and is so worth the splurge. I find that I often have to repurchase my green products every two or so months and it makes me feel like the amount of product isn't big enough for the money spent! I've been meaning to try Cocovit, I've seen it all over instagram! That Lavera concealer stick also intrigues me, I've been all about a light foundation with concealer only on spotty areas lately!
    Big love! Vanessa

    1. Hi love! Oh no worries!<3 Of course, my pleasure!:) Definitely agree with you on the huge size and it's most definitely worth the splurge :) Cocovit coconut oil is a real gem, I'm not sure yet, but if I'm not mistaken it's the oil that makes my hair super soft! I didn't change anything else, so I guess it really is doing something amazing :) I've been also loving that, I guess we've both feeling light foundation this spring :) xx

  13. Interested to know what you think of the Lavera concealer - I found it to be a nice consistency, but too dark. I would love to try Cocovit! xx

    1. Ooh I can imagine it's too dark for you, you fair skinned cutie! :) I thought it would be a bit dark for me too but it's just on the edge, which I'm so happy with! :) It's also on yellow side so that's also way it suits me :) Cocovit is amazing, really is a gorgeous coconut oil!<3 xx
