Beauty Blogger Empties & Beauty Products Review | L'oreal, L'occitane, John Frieda and much more!

After trying, and testing some products for over 4 months, today i will share my take on the things that i emptied out. Beauty empties is a new section i'm trying out on my blog inspired from all the youtubers i've been watching these days ( you guys should check out Joankeem . really. )

So we'll cut to the case and here are my first beauty empties for 2017!

alverde gesichtswasser review , garnier micellar water review

DM Alverde Aqua Gesichtswasser Meeresalge Review
I came across this toner when i was looking for a toner that's very low in alcohol and cheap. It costs only about 2 Euros, which is a steal. It removes the rest of the dirt after cleansing and preps your skin really well for the next step without drying out. It has a fresh scent and i'm really in love with it.
But here comes the bad news, DM just discontinued this toner :(
The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Lip & Eye Remover Review
This remover does its job really nicely. Eye make up melts easily without rubbing too much, hence not irritating your sensitive eye area. It does have a really strong but nice smell so if you don't like perfumey stuffs this is not for you. Overall, it has a nice milky texture that is soft but does its job.

Garnier Mizellen Reinigungswasser / Garnier Micellar Water Review
The micellar water trend is not dying out. I have to say that i really like this product. It's very affordable yet cleans every little bit of your make up and dirt. I use this every night instead of the Alverde Toner and it has done only good things so far. It feels like nothing yet cleans thoroughly. Be sure to stock up on this product!

origins checks and balances foam review, L'occitane precious cream review, maybelline baby skin review 
Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash Review
This face wash foams up really nicely, has a mild scent to it, making it feeling luxurious on the skin. A little goes a long way and this bottle lasted me over a year. This face wash doesn't dry out the skin yet somehow mattifies it, which is perfect for my oily combination skin. I'm on my second bottle now and still obsessed with it! 

L'occitane Immortelle Precious Cream Review
A very rich cream with anti aging properties. I can't see the anti aging effect because i don't have visible wrinkles but this cream is rich yet not sticky. I used this product up in winter when my skin really needs that extra hydration.

Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser Review
This is the infamous dupe for benefit porefessional ! i really recommend it to smoothen out your face before putting on make up and make your make up stay on fleek longer. You only need a little bit every time. It's very affordable so you can use it daily :)

bilou duschschaum review, treaclemoon duschcreme review 
 
Bilou Cherry Blossom Cremiger Duschschaum Review
I'm usually not a fan of flower scents but this one is an exception. I like sakura smelling things and this one smells really nicely. Not too strong, not too weak. The texture is really fluffy and you don't need too much of it. But i have to say that this brand is overpriced. I know that it's made by a famous german youtuber (BibisBeautyPalace) but for this amount of product you can almost afford a better one.

Treaclemoon Satsuma Duschcreme Review
It's okay. Like nothing special. I really like this scent but it got boring after a while. It foams up quite nicely but nothing special.

rituals honey touch body cream review, soap and glory the righteous butter review

Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter Review
This is one of the best body butter i've ever tried. The texture is thick yet not oily nor sticky. You don't need too much every application yet it moisturizes nicely. Even in very cold months. Got this thing in TK Maxx so let's see if i can discover some other steals there! Really recommended!

Rituals Honey Touch Body Cream Review
I'm also rating this body cream as an "okay" or "meh" product. It does feel luxurious and nice when you apply it but it doesn't really moisturize your skin. My skin feels dry after two hours of it. But if you don't need that much hydration and like the scent of it, it's okay.

alpecin coffein liquid review, John Frieda Frizz Ease Wunderkur Review, Schwarzkopf Glisskur Tägliches Öl-Elixier Review

Alpecin Coffein Liquid Review
I had a bad case of hairfall 3 or 4 months ago and started searching for a tonic that can cure the case. Sadly i didn't experience any noticeable effect after using this liquid every day. The Applicator is also not really user friendly. 

John Frieda Frizz Ease Wunderkur Review
Hands down one of my hair holy grails. It's quite pricy but worth it! I use it once a week and leave it on for about 3 to 5 Minutes and it does wonders, It hydrates and smooths your hair as if you were in the Salon! 

Schwarzkopf Glisskur Tägliches Öl-Elixier Review
Another hair holy grail. This product saves my hair from its dry state ! I use 2 pumps and just massage it into my hair and ends and it smooths out and gives nutrition ! I already emptied more than 2 of these so you know how i feel about them ;)

l'oreal colorista one day color spray review
 L'oreal Colorista Spray 1 Day Color Pastel Blue Review
Don't buy this. It's expensive, doesn't work as well. It does spray on some color but it goes away after brushing through your hair. It also gives out a very artificial spray paint steel kind of smell which is unpleasant. L'oreal better step up their game!

Thank you for the owner of Sneaker Circle for the support!

Red Sweater Mood

The Klausurphase  / Exams are finally over. I've been taking my long needed break and did absolutely nothing except things that makes me happy. That includes eating to my heart's content, meeting up with friends, and walk around. I started taking midnight walks with a certain group of people and it kind of detoxes your mind and frees you from problems.
How's your weekend going?

Grim Reaper Goblin Drama Outfit | 저승사자

Goblin / Guardian K Drama has already ended and i've watched the drama from the beginning until the very end. This drama is so far my favourite. The ups and downs, OST, and cinematography are all perfect. My favorite character is the grim reaper / wang yeo, played by Lee Dongwook and here i am with a grim reaper work attire inspired outfit!

Here's what he looks like in the drama!

To the one who thought that oblivion would bring me peace of mind. 
The moment our eyes met, i knew that you too retained your memories.
I pray that in our next life, the wait will be short and the meeting shall be long. 
That we won't need an excuse to see each other.
Entitled with our own dearest names.
So we could greet each other when we accidentally run into each other.
With our love always being the solution.
I pray that we can meet like that.
I'm just happy that i saw your face.
Sometimes you're Kim Woo Bin, and sometimes you're Wang Yeo.
Please live a long and happy life.
Goodbye.

Catrice Lip Cushion Review

I'm a big follower of K Beauty Trends and cushion has been a big trend since last year. It has since branched out to more than cushion foundations. Lip Cushions are already quite common in Korea and i'm quite surprised to see that Catrice includes some Korean make up inspired products in their Spring/Summer 2017 collection. So, Catrice Lip Cushion , is it a top or a flop product?

catrice lip cushion
lip cushion

Catrice's Claims on the Website

price : 4,95 Eur
Lipgloss with a shiny finish
Ultra soft jumbo sponge applicator
Medium pigmentation
Contains Avocado Oil

Coat your lips. This creamy lipgloss contains avocado oil and leaves behind a shiny finish with its supple texture. The ultra-soft jumbo sponge applicator covers the lips in various flattering shades and the formula with a medium pigmentation feels wonderfully soft on the lips.

Beauty Tip
Inspired by Asian beauty trends, the Lip Cushions offer a totally new sensory experience during application that leaves the lips feeling pampered and caressed.

Available in 6 Shades
010 Rather Be in Coachella
020 Better Make a Mauve
030 Coraline's Crush
040 Absolute Razz'Berry
050 A Little Soulfruit
060 What Happens After Midnight

They only range from pink to purple colour



Application

 Like the claim, it's a medium pigmented lip gloss. The colour pay of is just so so and but if you like natural looks then this is the product for you.
I tried dabbing the product onto the lips and it produces a sheer colour that's very pretty for a no make up look. Swipe if you want more pigmentation.
 Transfer Test
beauty blogger germany
All the product wipes off. It still leaves a kind of tint on the lips but the lasting power of this lipgloss is pretty disappointing. 
beauty bloggerin
What i think of it
It's an "okay" product. I didn't expect so much from this but it's just meh.
The color pay off is medium, which is what i usually like but the texture of it is so sticky ! My hairs and fallouts from scarfs were all stuck on my lips.
But heads up because it is an interesting product and the colors are actually very pretty for asian skin tones!
Is It Worth Buying?
Catrice Lip Cushion for me is a meh product.
But if you like lip gloss and want to try something interesting, this may be it !

Best of 2016 : Best Beauty, Make up , and Lifestyle Products !

2016 is already over! I did a lot of things during this year including being active again in this blog. I also really got into beauty and make up this year! My collection has grew and these are some of the top picks that i would like to recommend ! I tested them during the year and it's time for you to get to know them! HAPPY NEW YEAR !!

fashion blogger best of 2016
best cleanser
 Kose Softymo Deep Cleansing Oil
I've been using this oil all the time for the first step of my double cleansing routine. It gets all waterproof make up off and you don't even need to rub hard. This cleansing oil is also very affordable ( 7, 82 Eur for 230 ml ) !

Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash
I stumbled upon this product in Douglas Frankfurt Zeil and decided to try it out!
A little goes a long way and it's very mild yet effective. It doesn't leave the skin dry yet cleanses all the grimes and dirts inside the pores.

best skincare products

Garnier Hydra Bomb Tuchmaske / Sheet mask
I'm a big sheet mask mania and i've been testing out different sheet masks from a lot of brands. This one is available in DM and Rossmann in Germany and is the best sheet mask i've ever tested so far. It really moisturizes the skin and the effect lasts for days. I have to admit that it is kind of pricey (2 Euro pro sheet) but it's up to par to high end korean brands.
Origins GinZing Energy-boosting Moisturizer
The GinZing line is enriched with caffeine and vitamins to give your skin an energy boost. My skin always look replenished and glows after i apply this in the morning. The texture is light and gel-like but is very moisturizing. This product suits oily skin types really well because it doesn't contain any oils.
COSRX Advanced Snail 92 All in One Cream
i mostly use this cream at night or as a sleeping mask. This has been my gateway to loving COSRX Products ! Read my full review on this cream here 

best make up
Pony Effect Everlasting Cushion Foundation
This is my go to winter cushion ! The formula is really thin so it applies really naturally with a dewy finish. The puff is also invented by Pony herself and it's called the dough puff. It lasts all day and even better when you put a primer underneath! This is a certain must buy for korean cushion lovers.

Aprilskin Magic Snow Fixing Cushion Foundation
I discovered this cushion from beauty vloggers and this was my summer cushion. The coverage is amazing and it lasts the whole day as well. It has a natural matte finish which is perfect!
Take a look at my full review here

Benefit Porefessional
This primer is one of the holy grails of beauty bloggers all over the world. It refines pores and makes your skin super smooth. This is perfect for people with oily skin like me.

 Anna Sui Rose Cheek Color N 301
I got this as a gift and it's a really beautiful blush! you can mix the colors together and it gives you a very nice flush. The pigmentation is really strong so be sure to use it with a light hand.

Aritaum Color Lasting Tint in No. 6 Cranberry Shower
I always wear this if i'm going out for a long time. The color is a very flattering dark pink / cranberry which is amazing on yellow toned skin. The name is not only a promise, it really lasts a long time even after drinking and eating snacks!

best hair products

John Frieda Frizz Ease Wunderkur
This is the ultimate treatment for your hair. It's not oily yet nourishes every hair strands. I've been using this once a week and have seen immediate results. The hair is smooth and easy to style for days after you use this product.

Schwarzkopf Glisskur Tägliches Öl-Elixier
This is the reason my hair is really soft and nourished even though i wash my hair everyday. I usually apply it when my hair is still wet and it just smooths all the frizz and adds shine. I would recommend this to everyone who has dry and unruly hair!

best lotion

L'occitane Hand Cream
These are until now my favorite series of hand cream. I tried 3 or 4 variants of it already and it always smells wonderful. They are never sticky so it's comfortable to use it during studying or going outside. The size is perfect to carry around!

Rituals Honey Touch Body Cream
Jacqueline introduced me to this body cream and got me this for my birthday. The texture is very creamy yet light. You can easily apply it on and the scent is also very relaxing.
You get a nice amount of product for the price and you only need a little bit every time.
7
Baseball / Snapback Caps
This year i've been known as the girl who wears caps all the time. This is a life saviour when i'm having a bad hair day. It also elevates a simple outfit to a swag kind of style. 
Minimalist Jewellery
less is more. That's the style look i aimed for in 2016. Adding minimalist jewellery to your outfit of the day adds more accent points without doing too much. 

best life
 Kpop , K Hip Hop, and K R&B
These are the things that i've started loving in 2016. My favorite artists have been Dean, Zico, Blackpink, Big Bang, and the whole AOMG crew. 

Family & Friends
They're the ones that make my life merrier ! The stars of my instagram and snapchat stories :D
Cheers to great memorable moments in 2017!

Winter Essentials : Beauty, Fashion, and Lifestyle

As i continue to complain how cold the weather is here in Marburg, you should know that winter has arrived. The ultimate key to survive winter is to stay warm, moisturized, and comfy. I'll share my favorite products which can inspire you to try them out!
winter essentials


Beauty
best moisturizer
Moisturize ! 
I love to use a thicker moisturizer during the winter and have found some that are not heavy in oil and makes my skin looks really oily. I really recommend the L'occitane Immortelle Precious cream as an everyday moisturizer because it's very thick yet not sticky or heavy. COSRX Advanced Snail 92 All in One Cream, you all already know, that i love LOVE it ( read the full review here ) . I've been also trying out the Yves Rocher Serum Vegetal Luminizing Eye Roll On but it's only "okay". It has claimed to reduce black circle and wrinkles but it hasn't done anything yet.
aloe vera gel
Wear a Mask every 2 or 3 Days
This step is really soothing and does only good things for your skin! I hoard sheet masks from different brands in my refrigerator and put them on while watching movies or even studying. I got the Aloe Gel from the most loveable (sarangsurowooo) Margareta Vania and use it whenever i feel lazy to put on a real mask. I just apply the gel a little bit thicker than usual and let my skin absorb all the moisture from it.
yves rocher facial mist
Use Facial Mist in Between Outdoor Activities
This is a fun activity to do and refreshes your skin and feeling when you're outside. This mist is pretty small in size so it's perfect to carry around. It's fun to use alone and spray at your friends (especially male ones) to annoy them but do something good at the same time :p
best body butter 
Apply Body Butter after Showering
Not only your face needs to be taken care of but also your body ! Your skin gets drier during the colder months so it needs some extra love. It's most effective when you apply body butter or cream right after showering. I would recommend Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter & Rituals Honey Touch Body Cream because these smell amazing and really do make your skin very soft to the touch! 

Fashion
winter fashion essential
Big Scarfs & Beret
Say hi to Jenny, our model of the day <3
I have been wearing this huge scarf from Hollister a lot these months because it's very warm and a statement if you wear a dark colored coat. Wool Beret is also easy to match and keeps your head warm !
jenny and i, who's cuter?
Lifestyle
gudetama mug
Tea & Scented Candles
I drink at least 2 cups of tea everyday and my favorites are this Lipton Apricot, Peach, & Guava Fruit Tea and Twinings English Breakfast. They're black teas with certain flavors that i really like. I've also been enjoying them in this veerrry cute Gudetama Mug from Jacqueline !
My latest obsession is collecting scented candles and lighting them up every time i'm home. I still haven't found the best scented candle yet but i've been loving this calvin klein one i got from TKMaxx !  

I hope you got some inspiration for this Winter for my list! 
What's your winter essentials?
