JUICE BEAUTY STEM CELLULAR ANTI WRINKLE BOOSTER SERUM

Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Anti Wrinkle Booster Serum is a light gel formula that is ideal if you live in hot/humid climate or if you have oily to combination skin. I got a couple of sizeable samples and I gace it a good road test over the summer. Is it any good? Performance I am very pensive about two elements of the Juice  Beauty Cellular Anti Wrinkle Serum: 1) Stem Cells – there is plentu of contradictory info on the internet about whenther stem cells (even if not of animal nature) are safe or not. It seems like there...

KOSAS COSMETICS LIPSTICK FRINGE

I discovered Kosas Cosmetics few months ago and I bought Rosewater and Undonw unseen. I really liked the texture and the moisturising power, so I decided to try other colours in the range. I was particularly attracted by Fringe, a plummy earthy red. Performance Like the other lipsticks by Kosas that I tried the texture is unbelievable: super smooth and sort of gel like. The payoff is significant and with one swipe on the lips directly from the bullet I get a full on colour. No streaks or bleeding. These lipsticks are of a superior quality to everything else...

JOSH ROSEBROOK CACAO MASK

Josh Rosebrook Cacao Mask is one of the most difficult products to find as it is always sold out in its travel version. Luckily I got a sample that allowed me to try it before deciding to purchase it or not. The Cacao Mask is what started the whole Josh Rosebrook Skincare line. Performance Usually I love Josh Rosebrook skincare products but this mask did not work for me. In fact, I didn’t notice any difference after I washed it off. I was quite disapppointed. Whilst the Enzyme Exfoliator is fantastic and leaves my skin glowing, the Cacao Mask simply does not show any benefi on my skin. I also find the drying effect very uncomfortable, as well as the strong scent.  My sin does not agree withthe high level of witch hazel and vinegar contained in this product. It is very messy when rinsed out as it gets all the sink dirty. I will not purchase the full size of this product. INGREDIENTS Vitamin Infused Water, *Cacao, *Witch Hazel, *Vinegar, *Almond Oil, †Marula Oil, *Baobab Oil, *Grape Seed Oil, *Avocado Oil, *Jojoba Oil, *Sundflower Oil, *Evening Primrose Oil, *Vegetable Glycerin, *Rose Petal, *Turmeric, *Goji Berry, *Dandelion, *Eyebright, *Rosemary, *Ashwagandha, *Sage, *Beetroot, *Alfalfa, *Black Cohosh, *Raspberry Leaf, *Elderberry, *Chickweed, *Calendula, *Rose Hip, *Hawthorn Berry, *Ginkgo, *Cinnamon, *Marshmallow Root, *Bladderwrack, *Ginger, *Milk Thistle, *St. John’s Wort, *Cat’s Claw, *Licorice, *Lavender,...

FINE DEODORANT VETIVER AND GERANIUM

I received a sachet of the Fine Deodorant in the version Vetiver Geranium. I tested it in summer as in Milan it is super hot and it is possible to quickly determine if a natural deodorant is working! Performance The first thing that i noticed abut this deodorant is the strong scent: it is persistent and I could detect it during the day (I am super sensitive to scents so I was not very happy). The texture melts very easily and is very refined. A pea size for each armpit is more than enough. It lasts all day and I could not detect any unpleasant odours, even at +35 degrees (Celsius). INGREDIENTS Cocos Nucifera Oil**, Theobroma Cacao Seed Butter**, Sodium Bicarbonate, Glycerin**, Butyrospermum Parkii Butter**, Kaolin, Rhus Verniciflua Peel Cera**, Parfum*/**, Citral*, Eugenol*, Geraniol*, Farnesol*, Linalool*, Cironellol*, Limonene* *100% natural essential oils – ** certified organic quality Warning: This product may contain traces of camphor and eucalyptol. SCENT It is very strong and earthy. I could smell it all day long and it was etremely offputting. HOW TO USE IT Get a peasize and apply it massaging the “paste” on your armpits. avoid to apply it after shaving as it contains backing soda and essentual oils: it may sting. SWATCH The Fine Deodorant has a very refined texture that easily melts into the skin. it is not sticky and...
