BUY or SKIP: L'Oreal Skin Perfection 15 Second Miracle Cleansing Oil


Price: ~ 8 Pounds

Content: 150ml

Packaging: Clear orange bottle with a pump dispenser

Available at: drugstores and supermarkets

If you are looking for a product that will remove all of your make-up (including waterproof mascara!) as well as dirt and grime then BUY!

If you are sensitive or allergic to Mineral Oil then you might want to SKIP this product as it is one of its main ingredients. If that is not a deal breaker BUY!

If you have dry skin and are looking for a makeup remover that does not strip the natural moisture levels of your skin then BUY!

If you are sensitive to scents you might want to SKIP!

If you are tired of using a vast range of eye makeup removers, cleansing milks and wipes to take off your make and are looking for an easier and faster alternative BUY!

I found that the oil made my eyes a bit blurry when I washed it off with water. The effects only lasted a couple of seconds, however if that make you feel uncomfortable then SKIP! If it doesn’t bother you BUY!

Hope this helps you on your decision whether to BUY or SKIP the L'Oreal Skin Perfection 15 Second Miracle Cleansing Oil!

Monthly Empties: December 2015

Here it is. The last empties post of 2015, I hope you enjoy it!

Eucerin 10% Repair Lotion // would repurchase
Overall the product is quite greasy and it takes a while to absorb but once it does it leaves the skin feeling super soft. In winter this is a life saver for me as I tend to have very dry skin and gets itchy.
I also really enjoy applying it on my legs after I shave as I find it to be very soothing.
It’s quite expensive compared to drugstore lotions but considering this lasted me for over 6 months it’s definitely worth.

Frizz Ease Straightening shampoo // would repurchase
Frizz Ease is one of my favorite shampoo (and conditioner) brands out there. Over the last 7 years I have repurchased it time and time again. My hair feels moisturized and nourished while still having a bouncy flow. I looove it!

VO5 Smoothly does it conditioner // would repurchase
This is 500ml bottle of pure (and cheap!) joy. The conditioner feels super lightweight on my hair yet nourished as well. 500ml for only 2 pounds, that’s what I like to call a steal.

Rexona linen dry deodorant // might repurchase
It was a good deodorant. Did its job, yet sometimes leaving behind some white residue. Maybe I will repurchase.

Lee Stafford Argan Oil // would not repurchase
If you live in a hot/humid place, this is great. As it tamed my frizzy hair making it overall more manageable, at least that’s the impression I got after using this on vacation. However once the temperatures dropped I didn’t see any difference when I applied this on my hair or not. Will not be repurchasing it.

Dirty Works Moisture Mask // would not repurchase
This is one of those products where I can´t quite explain why, but I just didn’t like it. Sometimes I found that it made my skin feel softer others not at all. Not convinced at all which is why I won’t repurchase.

St. Ives Olive Face Scrub // would not repurchase
The peeling effect is much softer as with the apricot version, almost to soft because you can’t really notice doing something for your skin. It comes out very goopy out of the packaging. Very very goopy. I ended up using it as a body scrub instead as I didn’t feel comfortable using it on my face due to the texture. Not a repurchase for me.  

What products have you finished up lately?

NotW: Essence “That's My Pop Cake!”

When I went through my nail polish collection and decluttered some of my old nail polishes I found a long forgotten polish.

Essence “That's My Pop Cake!” is a beautiful reddish/pinky glittery shade. As this polish feels more like a topper to me, I like to pair it with a red nail polish underneath so that I don´t need to apply many layers to get a full coverage.

How to recreate this design:

  1. Apply one to two coats of any red nail polish you have (it doesn´t really matter which one as the glitter will cover most of it anyway).
  2. Apply two coats of Essence “That's My Pop Cake!”.
  3. Once the nail polish has completely dry take a black nail polish (I used Essence “Black” stamp polish) and Konad stamping plate M77 and stamp the “jeweled” design onto your nails.
  4. Before applying a coat of your favorite top coat (I love Essence “Better than Gel Nails Top Coat) I recommend to wait a little for the black polish to completly dry. Then carefully take a rhinestone and place it onto your design.
  5. In order to secure the rhinestone add another layer of top coat and you´re done!

I hope you enjoyed this design!
