Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation (old vs new formula)

Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation (old vs new formula)

Bourjois has reformulated their Healthy Mix foundation and I was curious to try it. The old version is one of my favorite drugstore foundations, but it is a bit too dark and yellow for me on most days. This is why I don’t reach for it all that often. The newer formula promises to be even more beneficial to your skin and it also comes in a very light shade: 51 Light Vanilla. Here’s how the old Healthy Mix formula compares to the new one.

Catrice Lip Foundation & Velvet Matt lip pencil

A very overlooked product from Catrice’s current spring/ summer range are their lip pencils. I haven’t heard anyone talk about these yet and to be quite honest I had all but forgotten about them. When I first spotted these, I was intrigued by their neutral tones. There are two types: lip foundation and velvet matt lip pencils. I tried some from each line.

Dove Ultime Nourishment Creme Serum

Dove Ultime Nourishment Creme Serum

I love a good leave-in conditioner. My hair is dry and brittle and I simply cannot go without a good hair conditioner. It prevents my hair from looking like a Poodle just had a blow out. For yonks I used the Gliss Kur Oil Nutrive Serum spray. But then I ran out one day and decided to try this: Dove Advanced Hair Series Ultime Nourishment Supreme Creme Serum. Quite the mouthful, but I received it in a goodie bag and thought: why not?!

Tips for beauty shopping in the US & the UK

I love to travel and one thing I love to look for when I am traveling are make up and beauty products. My main goal is of course to find items that are difficult or impossible to get where I live. Also if I can get products a lot cheaper, then buying something while traveling can be a good idea. Most of my travels have taken me to the US and the UK and that’s why I know those countries best in terms of beauty shopping. These are my tips.
