Review: Ontic Minerals Ontic Pro Structor Duo


Hi loves! Hope you are all doing well! Today's post is on Ontic Minerals Ontic Pro Structor Duo (8g, 26.95€).

They are one of my favorite mineral makeup brands. Their products are vegan and cruelty free. I love their loose bronzers and their highlighting duo is out of this world. Its one of the reasons I picked up this duo. I wanted one more highlighter from them, because the formula is so buttery and it looks absolutely gorgeous on skin. In this compact there is a highlighter, a bronzer and a mirror. The compact closes magnetically and is sleek.

Like I said the highlighter in this duo is brilliant, but the bronzer is more stiff and is not as pigmented. Also these are together in the pan, which makes it hard to pick up only the bronzer. I would like to repress the bronzer, so it wouldn't be so stiff, but then I have to do the same with the highlighter. Also the shimmer of the highlighter gets into the bronzer and the tone of it is too warm to use it as a contouring powder.

On the left you can see swatches of the highlighter and the bronzer. The bronzer didn't swatch well at all, but it can be build up and get a nice look. I just need to work harder on it. I wish the bronzer had same buttery formula then the highlighter. Then it could be perfect dup for summer.

I have used mostly the highlighter in this duo and it stays on my cheek bones all day with out fading away.


The big question is: do I regret buying it and I have to say no. I love the highlighter and I don't mind paying this much just for the highlighter, because its as good as Becca highlighters. I love the shade and I only wish they would come out with more buttery highlighters :) and maybe try to make the other powders as amazing as the highlighters are.

If you are interested checking out their face duos you can find all 3 here. I highly recommend the highlighting duo, its so good!

Review: Bioxidea Covering Imperial Extract Cleansing Gel


Hi loves! I finally have recovered from the traveling and I'm back home. I waited my flight in the airport 6 hours and arrived home 9 in the morning on Saturday. I should have arrived late on Friday. Anyway this weeks post is on Bioxidea Covering Imperial Extract Cleansing Gel (150ml, 62.00 EUR).

The cleanser comes in a clear bottle and has a pump. Its free of oils and preservatives. This is gentle cleanser, which removes makeup and dirt from the skin. Its formulated with platinum, proteoglycans and black yeast, which helps to waken the skin youthful glow. All their products are free of parabens, sulfates and mineral oils. Its cruelty free, natural and fits all skin types.

I have used this cleanser in the mornings and also as my second cleaner in the evenings. I  love the way in cleanse the skin and doesn't dry it out. I apply one pump on dry skin and gently massage the face. After that I wash it off with warm water and my skin is clean and there is no makeup traces left. It works like magic and is so gentle. I'm so surprised how effective it is.

Ingredients: Water, Rosa Damascena Flower Water, Citrus Auranthium Dulcic (Orange) Flower Water, Panax Notoginseng Root Extract, Chamolilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Rehmannia Chinensis Root Extract, Algea Extract, Yogurt Filtrate, Platinum Powder, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8.


As you can take from this review I'm so happy with this cleanser. Its so different from all my other cleansers. It doesn't foam and in the beginning it made me feel like it didn't do anything, but actually its so effective cleanser and make my skin clean with out irritating or drying it out.



On their international page this cleanser is 62.00 euros (link),  but on their USA page at the moment its only $19.00 (link). These links are not affiliate links. I just like this cleanser a lot and can't stop recommending it ;)


Hope you enjoyed it and thank you for reading! xo's

Review: Aïcha Age Defying Dead Sea Mud Face & Body Mask


Hi loves! Happy mothers dat to all moms :) Today's post is on Aïcha Age Defying Dead Sea Mud Face & Body Mask (250ml). 


This mask comes in a huge jar and I like to apply it with a brush. This mask is blended with sea minerals. Its with out parabens, chemicals, sulphate and is not tested on animals. Its made in the Uk and is 100% vegan. Also its natural, organic and pH balanced.


The mask itself is gray and doesn't have any noticeable scent to it, but in the ingredient list, there is parfum listed. Like I said I apply the mask on cleansed face with a brush. I used it usually after shower, so the mask can get all the dirt out. Its recommended to leave on 10 minutes. The texture of the mask is whipped and it feels very comfortable on skin. It doesn't irritate or make my skin red. After the 10 minutes I remove the mask with cleansing cloth or just wash off with water. After that my skin feels clean, plumped, refreshed and hydrated. Its perfect for beauties with dry skin.


This is fantastic mask! At the moment my skin is more to the dry side, but I wear makeup and need to deep cleans it. I like this mask gets the job done with out drying my skin out. I'm so happy with it! They don't have it yet listed on their online store (link), but you can ask from them on the Facebook (link).


Which is your favorite face mask?

Wishlisht: Pillerkaar #2 |Hoia, Luuv, Mukk


Hi loves! I haven't done a wishlist the longest time and I wanna update my current one. You can see the first wishlist post here. At the moment I still have in the list Luuv Shimmering Dry Oil (link) and their Self Tanning Dry Oil (19.90 EUR).


The first item I wanna add to this wishlist is Hoia Natural Deodorant (link). I really liked the on from Signe Seebid (review) and I now I wanna try other natural deodorants. It promises to fight against microbes and keep the skin soft and hydrated. It doesn't contain any aluminum and fits sensitive skin.

Next item from them I wanna try is their Coconut Bodywhip (link). I have tried one of their other bodywhips and loved it. It was the Lavender, Rosemary & Grapefruit Bodywhip (review). I love the formula and the coconut one would be great to have for summer.

 


Next is their Anti-Aging Face Serum (link). I haven't tried any of their skincare and I love everything anti-aging so this sounds just the thing for me. It helps to fight against wrinkles, plumps and firms the skin, helps with the texture, and hydrates. 


The next item in the wishlist is from the brand called Mukk. Its compliantly new brand to me and I wanna try their Toner (link). It has calming effect for the skin, which I want from the skin and it also claims to rejuvenate the skin. 

Next item in my wishlist is their Pimple Oil (link). My skin has been so bad that I need something like this. Its anti bacterial oil mix, which helps the open the pores and keep skin clear. It contains tea tree oil.


The last item I wanna try from Mukk is their Exfoliating Mask (link). Its a gentle mask, which helps to even out skin tone and keeps the skin clean. I need to have something like this in my skincare routine and I'm always up to try new skincare :)


This is it for this wishlist post. Its the last weeks post I missed. My life has been too busy, but you get it now and the next post should be up on Friday morning as usual. Hope nothing comes up ;)


Have you tried any of these products before?

Review: D'Diffrence Natural Beauty 4D Mild Cleansing Gel For Face & Eyes


Hi loves! I have had bit of hard time finding a new makeup remover. I used one from Body Shop and that irritated my eyes so bad and I didn't notice it till I changed it for D'Diffrence  Natural Beauty 4D Mild Cleansing Gel For Face & Eyes (120ml, 36.00€). Before we jump in to the review I wanna let you know I have oily skin type.


The cleanser comes in air tight packaging and has a pump, which I really like. It is bit bulky for traveling. This is gentle cleanser, which claims to remove makeup, sebum and dirt from the skin. It contains soothing niacinamide, Aloe vera and water-soluble olive oil. These leave the skin soft and smooth. The ingredients in their products are from natural origins. Its dermatologist tested and non-irritant. It don't contain parabens, mineral oil, colorants, PEGs, SLS and SLES.

Ingredients: Aqua, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Glycerin, Caprylyl/Capryl Glucoside**, Olive Oil Glycereth-8 Esters, Xylitylglucoside**, Niacinamide, Betaine*, Anhydroxylitol**, Sodium Benzoate, Panthenol, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Acacia Senegal Gum**, Xanthan Gum**, Xylitol**, Maris Sal, Lactic Acid, Parfum
*ECOCERT, NATRUE and COSMOS certified
**ECOCERT approved

The cleanser itself is clear and I use one pump on my face. I wet the face first and then apply the cleanser. In contact with water it becomes creamy foam. Its very gentle to the skin and eyes, but still effective to remove makeup. It took off my Benefit mascara and we all know how hard its to get off. I did have bit of residue left behind (from the mascara), but micellar water takes that off. It didn't makes eyes itchy or my skin feel uncomfortable. It really is gentle and not drying formula. I'm really impressed with it and why am I not using more of their products. Now I wanna try everything! My mom is already hooked on their eye cream. Next I wanna try their face serums. If you have any recommendations to me what I should try next from the brand, let me know in the comments. 


Their products are available in Estonia, EU and Canada. Here is the link to the cleanser, if you are interested.


What do you use to remove your makeup?

Review: BonMerité Whipped Body Butter with Shea Nut and Tangerine


Hi loves! I recently bought  BonMerité Whipped Body Butter with Shea Nut and Tangerine (200ml, 7.40 EUR). You can see the haul here, if you wanna see what else I got ;)I picked it up when I was in Rimi. BonMerité is natural Estonian beauty brand and they make bath and shower products and also body oils and butters. Their products are handmade and 100% natural.

The body butter comes in a tub and its easy to scoop out the product. It was in 2016 Anne & Stiil favorite (its a magazine in Estonia).  The formula of it is thick and once it get in contact with the skin it starts melting. I have tried only once such a product before and it also was from Estonian brand. I do like this type of formula more then traditional body butters. It becomes an oil and sinks into the skin fast and leaves it softer and hydrated.

The formula doesn't contain any water or preservatives, only herb oils and vitamin E. Like I said before it sinks into the skin fast and feels light. It doesn't leave any stains clothing or sheets. 

It contains shea butter, which is rich with vitamins and fatty acids. That makes it nourishing to the skin and I love body products with shea butter, because my skin in dry, specially on my legs. 

On the left you can see how the formula starts melting on skin and turns into rich oil, which nourishes the skin and leaves it soft and hydrated. I also love the the scent of it, which is mix of May Chang, tangerine and sweet natural vanilla. Altogether it makes this light refreshing scent, which is perfect for spring. 

Down below you can see the list of all ingredients.

Ingredients: utyrospermum Parkii (sheavõi), Prunus amygdalus dulcis (mandliõli), Cocos Nucifera (kookosõli), Vitis vinifera (viinamarjaseemneõli), Triticum vulgare (nisuiduõli), Citrus Reticulata (mandariini eeterlik õli), Vanilla Planifolia (vanilje absoluut), Litsea Cubeba (May Changi eeterlik õli).


I'm so happy with this! I just love this type of formula. Its so nourishing and its better to travel with it, because its not in oil form, but it turns into nourishing oil. I find oils are the best way to hydrate skin. Also the jar is light, because of the whipped formula. If you are interested in it, you can find it here.


Do you like whipped body butters?


Thank you for watching! xo's

Review: Ontic Minerals Rice Mineral Veil | Matte


Hi loves! I have been using non stop Ontic Minerals Rice Mineral Veil in Matte (6g, 26.95 EUR) to set my foundation.

If you are new to my blog the you don't know the brand. They are Estonian mineral makeup brand. They make natural beauty products, which are vegan and cruelty free.

This rice mineral veil is lose powder and comes in a jar. It has a shifter, which can be closed. That makes it easy to take with me when traveling. I love the packaging and I its not messy to use. The powder itself is fine and can be used as primer, if you use their mineral powder foundation.

When I use liquid foundation I don't apply it under my foundation. Then I use it to set my foundation and it makes my skin so smooth and lets it breath. I do need to reapply it through out the day, because I have oily skin and it happens with every powder I have tried in my life. I have to say I like this powder more them my La Mer powder, which says a lot. This one doesn't have nasty ingredients in it like talc.

This powder is available in 2 more shade. One is their shimmery version, which I have reviewed (link) and the other one is Mystery of Venus. It seems like there is some shimmer in it and its also darker.

Ingredients: mica, oriza sativa powder, boron nitride, magnesium stearate, CI 77891, CI 7749



I'm so happy with this powder! Its bit pricy, but I like how it makes my skin look and how well other powders blend out on it. Its so important to set your foundation with a good loose powder. If you are interested, you can check all their powders out here.
