Lavera Re-Energizing Sleeping Cream Review

Hello guys!

Organic skincare has taken over my beauty cabinet. One of Lavera’s newest product, Re-Energizing Sleeping Cream has made it there. I got it in my hands in the Organic Beauty fair with some other things which I wrote about few weeks ago.

Just letting you know that I have used this only less than a month, but to me in that time you can tell if the product is right for you. I fell in love with this on the first time I used it. I applied it after my usual night time routine. The scent brings to mind a coconut water and vanilla mixture, so delicious and fresh. It applied like a mousse and absorbed quickly onto my skin. The consistency isn’t too heavy which I love.

My skin felt plump, soft, smooth and renewed in the morning after. It didn’t break me out. It’s hydrating but light enough for my combination skin.

The Lavera Re-Energizing Sleeping Cream claims to have 5 over-night effects

  • Promoting skin’s natural regeneration
  • Revitalizes skin
  • Combats signs of fatigue
  • Provides intense moisture
  • Reveals smooth skin

It contains hyaluronic acid, olive oil, almond oil, jojoba oil, vitamin E and other great quality nutritious ingredients.

I am always scared to try new products because my skin is pretty sensitive and acnetic. My stress also shows on my skin easily so this night cream has been much needed as it is antioxidant. And I feel like this has made my skin younger looking, given a more radiant complexion.

One dislike, I hate the packaging. It is too sturdy for my taste and it is oddly masculine but at the same time like a mature lady, lol. Maybe it’s the color and the heaviness combined. But I can ignore that because I truly like this product, and so does my skin.

This retails for 22 euros. You can find it in most stores in the natural cosmetics section.

I would rate this product 5/5

Would I repurchase this: Yes

Everyday Spring Makeup Look

Hello lovelies and a great Monday!

New season, new look! Spring is on a good roll now and we are approaching summer. My daily makeup routine has evolved from the winter darkness to a more peachy look.

My mornings are busy so I have kept it really simple this spring.

dav

In my makeup look you can see just a few products. I am really lazy at applying foundation on daily basis as it takes so much time. With these products it only takes 10 minutes to do my makeup.

If you have any recommendations of BB or CC creams hit in on the comment bar below.

After my daily skincare routine I apply some NYX HD Photogenic Concealer Wand under my eyes to hide dark circles and for any angry pimples that need cover up. To brighten the overall look I apply blush to my cheeks and to my lid. In this case I use the Makeup Geek Blush in the shade Romance. It is a peachy coral with a golden shimmery finish so it works as a blush and a highlighter, which to me is crucial when I only have so little time to do my makeup. For the application I use Real Techniques Contour Brush.

When my base is done I move to the mascara. By far the best drugstore mascara I have used, Maybelline Lash Sensational in Waterproof. Two coats of this makes it look like I’m wearing falsies.

To complete the look I use NYX Lip Lingerie in the shade Ruffle Trim. I spoke about this on 3 Favourite Lipsticks Right Now.

So that was it, really simple and minimal spring look. Let me know if you have done a Spring Makeup Look post and I will check it out. Hope you enjoyed mine. Till next time!

20 Facts About Me

Hey guys!

First, sorry for the lack of posts. It has been due to my busy schedule. I am currently studying, being at a practice in a cosmetics company and going through a weight gain process. So my focus has mainly been in those things.

Second, since my blog is quite new I just have to share some facts about me. So here they are:

  1. I am half Chilean and Finnish.
  2. I am one of those people who can eat all they want and not gain weight at all.
  3. I have never been to driving school. And I honestly don’t know if I would have the patience to drive because I get nervous easily.
  4. I have a degree on audiovisual communications and also soon a degree in sales and customer service.
  5. My dream job has something to do with fashion. Like a handbag designer perhaps.
  6. I am terrified of balloons and footballs. My heart starts beating a million miles near them.
  7. I have 3 piercings altogether in my ears. I was pierced with two holes when I was only 1 year old. The third one I got last year for my 24th birthday.
  8. I’m not that into Christmas.
  9. I have dark blue eyes with a yellow iris.
  10. I believe in horoscopes. Any other daily horoscope readers out there?
  11. On my Bucket list I have “Get a tattoo”. Someday I will, after I can decide what I will get.
  12. I am allergic to soy and I’m lactose intolerant.
  13. I am 154 cm.
  14. My favourite colors are dark green and peach.
  15. I speak 4 languages which are finnish, english, spanish and swedish.
  16. I’m not a morning person.
  17. I hate comic books and I don’t know why.
  18. I love tea. Can’t start a day without a cup of tea.
  19. My favourite season of all is fall. Just thinking of fall fashion, fall makeup, fall leaves coloring the streets, ah!
  20. I must always carry chapstick with me. If I don’t I feel insecure and get nervous about my lips drying out too much. Addiction detected!

Organic Beauty

Hi loves!

Pro Luonnonkosmetiikka Ry runs an annual organic beauty fair here in Finland. Last weekend I got a chance to visit there for the first time. I must say that I loved it so much.

Organic beauty is something that I respect and value. There is so much more than just using organic and natural ingredient, it’s about the ecological factor, non-animal testing, not harming our bodies with harmful chemicals and such.

I decided to invite my mom to go with me. We had a great conversation about organic food and natural beauty products. We even had a chat with one of the sales girl, who was so nice and beautiful. The conversation was of organic products being more at reach nowadays, because the demand has grown. So we had a great time and bought some products, of course.

First things that went to my shopping cart where MADARA skincare products. I got two mini size masks, MADARA Detox Ultra Purifying Mask and SOS Instant Moisture + Radiance Hydra Mask. The third product is MADARA Balance Birch Algae Facial Soap, which is supposed to balance the skin with birch and seaweed which are loaded with vitamins and minerals.

I already own Sante hair care products and have liked them so far, so I bought more. First one is Sante Bio Rose & Silk Protein Moisturizing Shampoo for dry and damaged hair. The second one is Sante Bio Henna & Beer Volume Shampoo for fine and weak hair.

dav

I got gifted this Flow Cosmetics Organic Lavender Essential Oil. Lavender helps to relax and it also helps to soothe muscle pain and period cramps when diluted in base oil. Lavera Re-Energizing Sleeping Cream was on my shopping list since it launched. It revitalizes skin overnight and brightens while moisturizing.

Lastly this boy. This is Activated Green Clay that you drink, yes drink! It is rich in minerals and it’s good for your stomach, intestines, bones, exhaustion and it can be used for detox purposes. This was something new to me and I felt like I need to try this since it helps in so many things, specially tiredness.

Can’t wait to test out all these products! I will do a review on most of the products after using them a decent amount of time for a proper review. I am already in love with the Lavera Sleeping Cream though.

Have you tried any organic beauty products? What are your thoughts on it?

My Makeup Geek Eyeshadows + Swatches + Reviews

 

dav

Happy April everyone!

How have you been doing? I feel like March went by too fast. Also the weather has been awful here in Finland, rain, snow and fog. Come on spring!

Last week I ordered some Makeup Geek eyeshadows and a small Z-Palette from BeautyBay. I am already a Makeup Geek fanatic even though I have discovered them just only about over a year ago (better late than never). My order included five (5) eyeshadows, which three (3) of them were matte eyeshadows and two (2) were duochromes.

I originally own two MUG eyeshadows, Shimma Shimma and Country Girl. I felt like these two were lonely and needed a squad, hahaha.

From left to right: Shimma Shimma, Peach Smoothie, Creme Brulee, Country Girl, Cabin Fever, Ritzy (Duochrome), Havoc (Duochrome)

Shimma Shimma is a champagne color and so pigmented. It’s the perfect inner corner highlight. I also sometimes use it on the middle of the lid as a pop of color with any other eyeshadow. I’m gonna say what everyone else says about this eyeshadow, it’s a must have in your collection.

Peach Smoothie is a peachy orange shade. I ordered this because I wanted it to be my summer eyeshadow. It complements my blue eyes and fair skin so beautifully. It is perfect as a transition shade or just used on its own on the entire lid together with Shimma Shimma on the center.

Creme Brulee is a warm light brown color. It’s described on the Makeup Geek site as medium sand color with a matte finish. I found this a little bit drier than the other eyeshadows when I swatched it. I had to swatch it like three times because it wasn’t showing up. However, when I use it on my lid it shows up more pigmented and is creamy in texture which makes it easy to blend.

Country Girl is a shimmery muted pink brown. I use this all over lid when I’m in a hurry and want a pop of color. It look good on its own or with eyeliner. I couldn’t find this eyeshadow on Makeup Geek website, so I don’t know if this eyeshadow has been cancelled or something.

Cabin Fever is a reddish brown and it’s matte. This one is the most pigmented out of all the shades in my collection. That swatch on the picture is with one swipe. It is extremely buttery and blends well. This shade is great on the outer v and when doing a smoky eye. It makes my blue eyes pop.

Ritzy (Duochrome) is a red/brown based eyeshadow with green and gold flecks. I expected this one to be more gold/green than red. It looks beautiful on the pan, blends easily and is very pigmented. It looks so good when applied own its own on the entire lid because it has so many dimensions (it’s like you’re wearing 4 or more eyeshadows). I am a little bit disappointed because it isn’t what I thought it was, but I’m also very surprised that it actually looks better than what I had in my mind. Ritzy is a cool eyeshadow to have in your collection.

Havoc (Duochrome) is a rusty shade with green flecks. This is the eyeshadow I was most excited about. When I swatched it the teal/green in it really stood out. In the pan it looks like olive green but it’s actually so much more. Havoc can be used on its own but I combine it with Peach Smoothie and Creme Brulee. It is not as versatile as Ritzy but it’s unique and mesmerizing!

Do you own any Makeup Geek eyeshadows? Have you ordered something from BeautyBay recently?
