I am sure at least once in your life you bought some cosmetics which actually didn’t meet your expectations at all. I just did and today I am gonna tell you about some of my best and worst choices of February. Ready?
Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay
I bought this mask because I was struggling with some breakouts after I’ve been travelling to a humid places. My sister in law recommended it to me and this product is amazing! It is very easy to use – you add 1 tsp of clay + 1 tsp of apple cider vinegar or micellar water (I use apple cider vinegar), blend it and put on your face for about 15-20 min. After you rinse it off with quite amount of water, you’ll notice a big difference – breakouts are not that red anymore, skin is smoother and feels great. I used it 4 times and my pores cleansed amazingly – honestly I do not have any breakouts now. You can buy it here >>
Usually I try to buy organic & natural, vegan etc. products. This time I did a research and only because I had a problem with acne & clogged pores (yep, again..), I decided to break my rule and buy something not really organic hoping that I finally won’t see acne on my face. This Clinique product is a 2nd step of 3 steps clinique in skin cleansing routine. It was suppose to clarify dry skin and according to a producer:
the smoothing formula whisks away flakes and refines pores to reveal a clearer complexion. The cool, refreshing formula removes dead cells from the surface of the skin helping moisturizer and makeup to apply evenly.
It is for dry or combination skin, but what happened instead? It dried out my skin to the point it was hurting especially around my nose area… I didn’t expect that from clinique brand which is very popular in USA… but this is not the end. With this product I also bought Pore Refining Perfector which was suppose to make my pores at least smaller. Unfortunately, for me it does not work at all for me. It is just like you put silicone layer on your face and it is smoother, but what else?
Maybe for someone with non acne-prone skin it would be good to make your skin smoother, but to me it is a disaster, just clogs pores. I am still wondering how come those 2 clinique products have such a good reviews on the Internet? Well, I won’t buy this products again. And they are not extra cheap either: lotion was about 15 $ for 200 ml, pore perfector 21 $ for a tiny tube. I got it with some discounts and I received samples, like this Clinique Pop lacquer lip colour in love pop shade which was a good surprise. Nice shade and very well moisturizing formula. I also like how it looks, you can see the picture bellow.
Maybe if this lip gloss was organic I would buy it, but for this price I am sure I can find something better and – what I appreciate more – cruelty free.
Insta Natural Skin Brightening Serum with Vitamin C
After pretty bad experiences unexpectedly with Clinique brand, I found a great relief for my skin. Everyone know that after you finally get rid off acne & breakouts, it leaves those red marks and scars. So even though I could easily cover them with my foundation, I did not want to have them at all. Insta Natural Brightening Serum is a genius.
It makes dark spots, scars (even sun discolorations) less visible and finally actually invisible! On top of that it is 100% organic, vegan and it smells so good – the bottle seems to be light pink, but inside there is orange liquid. This is definitely my favorite product of February! What is yours?
