5 beauty favorites

5 beauty favorites

Hello! Today I’ll share with you my top 5 beauty items for the past couple of months.

I’m starting with the item I liked the most – Avon Luck EDP. Gosh, I haven’t been in love with a perfume for so long. I use it 4 months now and I’ve used only 1/10 of it. The smell is wonderful. According to Fragrantica this perfume is floral-fruity-oriental. The top notes are bergamot, red berries, mandarin orange. The middle notes are night blooming cereus and white flowers. The base notes are sandalwood. But in my opinion this perfume smells like green apple and nobody can tell me that there’s no apple in it. It’s long lasting – on my skin it lasts for probably 16-20 hours. In my opinion you can use it every season except summer. I think it’s going to be too heavy for the hot days. The bottle is chic and luxurious. If you see it on sale give it a try! You won’t be sorry.

I’m continuing with the second item from the brand – Avon Planet Spa Treasures Of The Desert face mask. I love Avon face masks and I haven’t used them for 2 years maybe. You know what they say “old habits never die”. I wanted to try something new and different from the masks I used before. This one is with clay and it cleans my skin very well. It’s easy to remove – only with warm water. After using it my skin is super soft and clean.

My next favorite product is Pirin Dream mattifying cream. It’s for oily and combined skin. I wanted to try something different from my all-time favorite face cream – Alverde Beaty and Fruity Mattifying Cream. I like this one for the cold months. It moisturizes my skin and protects it from the wind. But in the summer, it will leave my skin oily and I’m trying to use it up as fast as I can. The only negative thing I can say about this product is that it’s in a tube and when you don’t use it for let’s say a week there’s a dry part of the cream at the first pump which drives me crazy. That isn’t very economical.

I’m moving to the hair products. L’Oreal Magic Retouch in dark brown was my saver for the weeks I didn’t want to dye my hair. Until now my mom dyed my hair and now it’s my duty and the first time I was very nervous and scared that I would screw things up. But with foam hair dyes I had no problems at all. The product – it makes wonders! You just need to be careful not to dye your fingers or your face. It’s not so easy to remove. On my hair, it lasts till the next hair wash which makes it super economical. 50 ml is 5 euro.

Elseve Oil Luxury Double Elixir was a spontaneous purchase. I haven’t been using anything else on my hair except shampoo, conditioner and oils for my hair for around 2 years and I wanted to try something new. The product itself consists of two phases and you should shake it well before every use. What I like the most about this product is that it leaves my hair very soft after I dry it and the smell is pleasant. Which reminds me – I use it only on wet hair before hair drying it. I believe that it helps me with the detangling of my hair.

Aliexpress wishlist

Aliexpress wishlist


Hello! Today I’ll share with you my current Aliexpress wishlist. I haven’t forgotten my favorite owls so I included a super cute washi tape which is going to fit so well with my mint bullet journal. I also wanted a tulle skirt for a long time. But I hope I can find one in a local store so I can try it and see if it fits me. The collar necklace is amazing. I wanted this type of necklace for a year but I didn’t find anything I like, because all of them looked very cheap. I'd like to have a few phone cases so I can change them every week or so. Currently I’m in love with flamingos and the color combination of the pineapple case is cute. The bags are something I’m in need of right now. I don’t have any small black bag and I don’t know which one of these two I want the most. And the mint one is also nice so probably I’ll end up with the three of them.

1. Owls washi tape - 0.98$
2. Tulle black skirt - 12.90$
3. Collar necklace - 4.35$
4. Flamingos phone case – 1.59$
8. Black bag 6.61$

I hope you found something interesting for you here. :)

3 shower gels for the chocolate lovers

 3 shower gels for the chocolate lovers

Hello! This post is for all the chocolate lovers. Lately I’m obsessed with the smell of chocolate and the main reason for that is the Palmolive Chocolate Passion body butter wash. Usually it’s not a brand I look for when I’m shopping. I don’t even know why, but I always buy products from Dove and Balea.  I saw the product in a local drugstore and I fell in love with the smell.  From the 3 of the shower gels I’m talking today this one smells the most like chocolate. I’ve used 3-4 bottles of the product and I have one more, which I’m saving for the autumn. I think this explains how much I love it! It smells divine in the bathroom but the smell doesn’t last long on my skin. It doesn’t moisture my skin nor that it dries it. That’s why I use some oil from time to time to moisture and nourish my skin – in most of the cases mixed with any of these exfoliants. From this series, I also tried Vanilla passion body butter wash, but I find it smelling too chemically and I can’t recommend it to you. Here in Bulgaria you can find the products of this series for around 2 euro for 250 ml.

After being in love with this shower gel for a few months I decided to give Avon Planet Spa Indulgent SPA Ritual Chocolate Elixir a try. This is my first time I’m using something from Planet Spa apart from the face masks. The regular price is around 6 euro for 250 ml but there’s always a sale on Avon products, so I bought mine for only 2 euro. If it wasn’t the price I wouldn’t buy it. For me this range is overpriced, except when you buy something on extra sale. But let’s get back to the product. Like the previous one, this shower gel smells amazing. It probably lasts a little bit longer on my skin but nowhere near to 2-3 hours. Also I don’t feel my skin dry when I use it.

My last discovery is Balea Schoco Love shower gel. Unlike the others 2 this one smells like a mixture between chocolate and milk – like milkshake. It’s the most suitable for people who are sensitive about the smells of their skincare products. The bottle is super cute and round - different from the usual Balea shower gels. There’s also a body cream/lotion from this series. The price of the shower gel is 1.50 euro for 350 ml.

The consistency of all of the shower gels is creamy, it looks like melted chocolate and you’d like to eat it. My urge for eating chocolate drastically decreased after I started using these shower gels. Somehow, I feed myself only with the smell of chocolate.

None of the mentioned shower gels are natural without harsh chemicals but for shower gels I stopped worrying. In Bulgaria, the price for a natural shower gel is around 5 euro for 200 ml which is insane, because for the same price I can find a 500 ml shampoo or conditioner!

Would I repurchase any of them? The Palmolive Chocolate Passion - yes. But the other 2, probably not.

Do you have any favorite chocolate smelling shower gel?
